Kam's Roast Philippines Opens in Manila- A Taste of Hong Kong in SM Megamall

The wait is finally over as Kam's Roast opens its doors today May 15, at the Mega Fashion Hall of SM Megamall. Kam's Roast is a Michelin-starred roast goose purveyor in Hong Kong that gained a massive following from both locals and tourists since it opened in 2014. It immediately earned it first Michelin star, and continues to retain it every succeeding year.

Thanks to Foodee Global Concepts, (the same group behind other international franchise like Tim Ho Wan, Foo'd by Davide Oldani, Todd English Food Hall, Tsuta Ramen, LlaoLlao), Kam's Roast is now in the Philippines! You can now have a taste of Hong Kong's best roasts, without actually leaving the country.

One thing to note though, Kam's Roast Philippines, will not be serving their signature roast goose due to import restrictions on poultry products from China. Instead, Kam's underwent a series of R&D to replicate the taste of goose with duck.

Here are the signature meats you can try at Kam's Roast:

Roast Duck (P1500/half, P2800/whole)

Moist and meaty roast duck slices in Kam's signature sauce and honey glazed soya beans underneath. 

Soya Chicken (P500/plate, P980/whole)

Tender chicken slices lathered in Kam's signature gravy and paired with ginger and scallion sauce. I found this even more tender than the one we tried in Hong Kong. 

BBQ Pork Char Siu (P600/plate) and Toro Charsiu (P700/plate)

Kam's Roast serves 2 kinds of Char Siu. First one (left) is the traditional lean and meaty bbq pork slices in sweet glaze, while the other one (right) uses bbq pork belly with alternating layers of meat and fat. I personally prefer the Toro Char Siu which I find more tender and moist. 

Crispy Roast Pork (P700/plate)

How can you go wrong with this? Tender pork slices with crunchy layer of skin. I like how meaty each piece was, with just the right amount of fat in between. 

Kam's Roast menu basically revolves around 5 signature roast meats. You can play around with different combinations and pair your meats with either rice or noodles.

I had the traditional style Braised Noodles with Ginger and Scallion (P220), but there's another option of Brasied Noodles with Shrimp Roe (P240).

Kam's Roast is basically a carnivore haven. If you like meat, then this place is for you. For people who are not so much on meaty dishes, Kam's also has Wonton Noodles (P280) and Poached Seasonal Vegetables (P240) as lighter and healthier options.

I find the wontons smaller than the average size, but the broth was very flavorful and had that distinct shrimp flavor.

There are also side dishes to enjoy like this very crunchy and garlicky Marinated Cucumber with Vinegar & Garlic (P220), and this simply yet tasty Marinated Tofu (P180).

Kam's Roast Menu:

Kam's Roast sources its duck locally from Davao. While goose is naturally more fatty than duck, we learned that Kam's Roast makes sure that they only use big ones with an average of 2.8-3kg per duck.

Reservations and take outs are not yet allowed as of the moment.
