IN PHOTOS: What you can eat at Kam's Roast, a Michelin-star restaurant
MANILA, Philippines – Kam’s Roast is opening in the Philippines!
More than a year since we first heard that the famous Michelin-star restaurant was setting shop in the country, Kam’s Roast is finally opening its doors to the public on May 15.
When we visited Kam’s on the 3rd floor of Mega Fashion Hall on Wednesday, May 9, the entrance was still boarded up – but don’t let that fool you. Inside, chairs and tables are already set up and the roasted meats they’re known for are already on display, ready for their soft opening on the 15th. At the back of the restaurant is a private room that you can book for larger groups.
Kam’s Roast Philippines won’t be serving the roast goose they’re known for yet – we have Avian Flu to thank for that – but they are serving everything else, including roast duck, roast pork, suckling pig, soy chicken, and 3 kinds of char siu (barbecued pork): regular, toro (pork belly), and iberico.
For appetizers, we had a delicious marinated tofu, spicy, garlicky cucumbers, and their famous lava century egg with pickled ginger.
There was also a wonton soup – the only thing we had that night with shrimp – and some vegetables for good measure.
Everything went perfectly with rice, but if you’re feeling peckish, Kam’s Roast serves braised noodles with shrimp roe too.
In Hong Kong, Kam’s Roast comes from the same family behind Yung Kee, a high-end restaurant famous for their roast dishes as well.
It was brought to the Philippines by Foodee Global Concepts, the same group behind Tim Ho Wan Philippines, Tsuta Japanese Soba Noodle, and Todd English Food Hall. – Rappler.com
