#4: FYRE Bak Kwa - from $82.60 for 1kg
Being a relatively new bak kwa brand in Singapore, FYRE may not be a name you’ve heard of till now, but their founders have a combined experience of over a century in the food industry. Can't go wrong there!
They only have 2 flavours at the moment - The Original 1945 and The Mala Xiang Guo - but what they lack in quantity, they make up for in quality. These are made from premium meat that’s smoked for hours over apple and lychee wood, before being barbequed. The result? Fragrant and amazingly tender bak kwa with a sweet, smokey flavour.
You might balk at the prices of $118 and $128 for the Original and Mala flavours respectively, but relax - these come in 1kg bundles. Perfect for those who have big families and are holding multiple get-together sessions at home.
Early bird deal: Use code “FYRE30” at checkout to enjoy 30% off from now till 10 January 2021. This means you’ll be getting 1kg of bak kwa from just $82.60.

Foodies with a penchant for all things quirky and unconventional will have the time of their lives with New Peng Hiang’s 13 different bak kwa flavours, all of which come in 500g packs. It’s not just the standard Tender Pork BBQ Bakkwa ($22, U.P. $25) and Golden Coin BBQ Bakkwa ($24, U.P. $28); Here, they push the boundaries of this new year delicacy with out-of-this-world flavours like Pineapple, Kimchi, and even...Garlic?!
Clearly, these aren’t for sticklers for tradition, so we’re not sure if your ah mah would approve or not. But hey, these might make for a great game of “bak kwa roulette” to play with your cousins.
