Kai Koh is one of the most determined street food entrepreneurs in Singapore. He started with nary a clue about the business nor cooking. He quit his corporate job, visited and learned from his roasted meat hawker relatives in Malaysia, and never turned back. He and partner Randall tweaked it, and now they offer a very sinful wood roasted cha siew (honeyed pork) and sio bak (roast belly pork). He even uses the not so traditional belly pork cuts for the cha siew. The marinade eventually looks like caramelised bark on the meat and it is extremely moreish. He now runs a few hawker stalls and has partnerships with other players to run more upscale speakeasy bars (Fook Kin and Easy Fok) with cocktails and local food platters that include his stunning roast meats.
