[Singapore] Kam's Roast at Pacific Plaza

HK’s one Michelin-starred Kam’s Roast Goose opened its first Singapore branch last Oct in Pacific Plaza. Again, as with all new but well-known overseas eateries which make a foray into Singapore, it spawned long queues 1-2 hours long during peak meal hours in its initial weeks of operation.

These days, it’s a breeze to get into Kam’s Roast - mind you, there’s no goose in Singapore due to a ban by the AVA on geese from China. So, one gets to order Malaysian ducks or chicken, plus the “toro” BBQ pork (cha-siu).

We ordered a plate of roast duck (leg portion), crispy-skinned roast pork (siu yuk) and cha-siu. Both were good, though they don’t seem to reach the heights of the HK original.

Sides which we ordered included noodles topped with ha-chi (dried shrimp eggs) and also stewed soybeans.

Standard of food offerings here don’t really stand out from the plethora of other good Cantonese chains already well-established in Singapore (e.g. Imperial Treasure, Crystal Jade, Tung Lok, even Taste Paradise Group) - which probably explained why the initial crowds disappeared as quickly as they came.

No Malaysian geese?

No, there is no goose-farming industry in Malaysia for some reason. Goose-meat is also pretty rare in Malaysia itself.
