Bak kwa or pork jerky is a must-have this time of the year. With Chinese New Year coming up this week, some people take leave just to queue for their favourite bak kwa. And the queue can take hours at Lim Chee Guan, one of the more famous brands.
I used to be one of those who would crave for Lim Chee Guan bak kwa during Chinese New Year.
The barbecued meat is sweet, saltish and succulent and oozes goodness with each bite.
Thankfully, I did not have to queue for my fix this year. A friend just gave me a pack of these to-die-for goodies.
Anyway, I have learnt my lesson and decided that I can enjoy the bak kwa at other times of the year when it is less pricey.
But, if you must, do go early before the queue builds up and prices start soaring. The outlets are at 203 New Bridge Road, People’s Park Complex and Ion Orchard in Singapore.
