Dragon Inn Char Siew Rice Stall @ Toa Payoh
If you're buying takeaway portions of the pork, do toast them in an oven before consuming because the packaging traps the moisture which compromises the crisp skin. The Char Siew here is a little too sweet for my liking and I've never tried their Roast Duck. Do let me know what you think, if you've tried the Roast Duck from this stall.
In the movie, a beautiful and sultry innkeeper cons and kills lecherous men. Then she disposes of their bodies by erm...recycling them...ie. make them into meat buns. I saw the old version of this movie in the late 80s, I think they called the meat buns "Ren Rou Cha Shao Bao" which translates into "human char siew buns" but of course, they would never tell the clients the actual name and so they simply sold "Cha Shao Bao". Being the big CSI fan that I am, I am constantly reminded of what Gil Grissom said about human beings and pigs having a similar chemical make-up (or something to that effect) when he conducted an experiment using a pig.
