  • Four reasons to visit Kam’s Roast at SM Megamall
  • Kam’s Roast is one of the most popular restaurants in the world. They’re known for their impeccable roast goose sold at street market prices, making their Hong Kong store one of the most affordable Michelin-starred restaurants in the world.

    They have been expanding to other parts of the world, and their recent opening at SM Megamall had us wondering why you should visit Kam’s Roast.

    THE MAN IN THE KITCHEN. Chef Wong Kwan Sang, the executive chef of Kam’s Roast, flew in from Singapore to grace the kitchen at Kam’s Roast Philippines.

    While we would love to have their award-winning roast goose in the country, recent regulations about importing any kind of poultry from China make it impossible to have them in the Philippines.

    What we do have, however, are an ample supply of ducks and pigs, which leads us to wonder… if there is no goose, then what else is there at Kam’s Roast? We list down four reasons (i.e. dishes) why you should consider swinging by Kam’s Roast at SM Megamall:

    Toro Char Siu (Php 700 per plate)

    UNEXPECTED HERO. Kam’s is popular for poultry, but their Toro Char Siu (barbecued pork belly) will lead the pack in Manila.

    Yes, we’re veering away from their affinity to poultry and going straight for the jugular. Their toro char siu or barbecued pork belly stands out because of its balance between sweet and savory. The meat-to-fat ratio is ideal, and the sweetness of their barbecue sauce goes well with the pork.

    Roast Duck (Php 750 – Php 2,800)

    KAM’S ROAST FORTE. Yes, they don’t have goose, but their ducks can more than make up for the missing bird.

    We know you’ve had duck before, but you’ve never had duck the way Kam’s Roast does their duck. It’s roasted in a way that gives it a distinct red tinge. Their housemade plum sauce completes the dish, giving it a flavor profile unlike any you’ve tasted.

    ROAST DUCK COMBO RICE (Php 390). Get this if you’re having trouble deciding between chicken or duck.

    Soya Chicken (Php 500 – Php 980)

    A DELICIOUS TAKE. Yes, it’s still roast chicken, but we know you’ll want to come back for this multiple times over.

    Roast chicken isn’t anything new to Filipinos. We understand that the names Chook’s, Andok’s, Baliuag, and Mang Inasal might still reign supreme, but Kam’s soya chicken is in a different class. It’s the kind of roast chicken you’ll be serving at a dinner party. Make sure you ask for an extra saucer of their ginger scallion dip; it gives you a vastly different flavor profile.

    Roast Suckling Pig (Php 800 – Php 6,000)


    NICE AND CRISPY. The skin on these slices might fall off, so make sure you are proficient at using chopsticks (or you can ask for a fork.)

    Rounding out the list is their roast suckling pig. In case you’re wondering, yes it tastes similar to our cochinillo. We’re guessing there are no further explanations needed for this experience.

    With these four dishes, Kam’s Roast is set-up for success in the country. Yes, we’re not getting their Michelin-starred roast goose, but everything else on the menu is just as good.

    Kam’s Roast is located at 3/F, Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall B, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City. They are open from 11 am to 10 pm daily.
