Class 95 DJs The Muttons open cheekily-named roast shop Fook Kin, sells everything but mutton
Looks Fook Kin good though.
It seems like the side gig of any self-respecting artiste is to start an F&B business with an ingenious signboard:
Hip interiors with modern Chinese cuisine
And here we have Justin Ang and Vernon A, also known as Class 95 DJs The Muttons, who have just opened a roast meat joint named Fook Kin.

Probably the best fook kin charsiew I’ve had in a while ??? Went to try @muttons’ newest venture in F&B – @fook.kin – where they serve up really awesome charsiew and roasted pork belly, alongside other Chinese dishes! Other than the meats, another must-orders is the Golden Lotus Root Chips.. it’s super addictive!
While the space looks industrial-hip, the dishes here are mostly traditional albeit with a modern twist.
According to 8DAYS, the DJs teamed up with Old Airport Road Food Centre’s Roast Paradise for this venture, and one of the bosses from the hawker stall will be working at Fook Kin to take care of its roasting needs.
Kuala Lumpur-style Cantonese roast meat
Here’s what you can expect at the restaurant, which specialises in Kuala Lumpur-style Cantonese roast meat:
Roast Duck from S$6.80 per portion, S$65 for a whole bird.
A post on the restaurant’s Facebook page writes that each duck is thoroughly massaged with 18 herbs and spices before being slow-roasted over a small charcoal fire.
The dish is served with either Angelica Herb (dang gui) Sauce or Western Peanut Sauce.
The Caramelised Char Siew (from S$6.80) is similarly roasted over a a small charcoal fire and glazed with… some sauce.
Those who like their pork belly can also go for the Golden Crackling Siew Yoke (from S$6.80).
The pork belly is marinated overnight and roasted at 400°C to produce a crackling, crusty skin — a technique that is also supposed to trap flavour in the meat.
The dish comes with mustard.
Otherwise , you can get individual mains that start from S$8.80, which includes your choice of one type of roast and noodles/rice for carbs.
Cantonese zichar dishes
There’s more than roast dishes at Fook Kin, too — its menu also consists of fusion cantonese zichar dishes.
Salted Egg Wings & Drumlets (S$9.80):
According to their Facebook page, there are also plans to collaborate with cocktail mixologists to “encourage a bar culture after hours”.
However, Fook Kin is not The Mutton’s first venture; the duo also had a hand in Fat Papas, a popular burger joint in Singapore that was started with the Fat Boys team.
Address: 111 Killiney Rd, Singapore 239553
Opening Hours: Open daily 11am to 10pm, last orders at 9.30pm
