Legendary Meng Kee’s Char Siew at Glenmarie, Shah Alam
One of the most popular char siew restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, the Meng Kee Char Siew (Caramelized Roast Pork) has been around for years. However my first visit to their shop is at their branch in Glenmarie, Shah Alam.
It was a hot day and my clients tagged me along to one of the unexpected food, char siew. After reading the signs in front of their restaurant, the place needs no more introductions. Thus, it was packed and we were lucky to have a table in minutes.
The restaurant was not air conditioned and luckily it wasn’t that stuffy inside. After getting our orders, the roast chicken came first.
To be frank, there is nothing more than amazing about their roast chicken. The skin was slightly crispier and the taste was more the less the same with other usual chicken rice stalls.
We ordered the grill sausage. To be frank, since I came back from Argentina, I began to fancy grill sausages. Compare to the roast chicken, this was better. The taste and the fillings, this was pretty good.
Lastly, the legendary char siew (caramelized roast pork). I noticed that the skin is darker and stickier than usual. My guess would be more sugar was applied on the skin during the grilling process, which resulted darker char siew skin colour and I wasn’t wrong. It was sweeter than usual char siew and I loved how they use layered pork for it. It was really up to the expectation.
The bill came about roughly around RM 10 per person with drink. Slightly expensive than usual, but its worth the price. Thank you for reading.
