13. Char Siew/ Siew yoke Rice

The reason Char Siew (BBQ pork belly) and Siew Yoke (roast pork belly) are listed and categorized as one because most of the places sell both of them together. They are one of the most common Chinese food around KL and what so special about them?

Siew Yoke or Roast Pork Belly is crispy on the skin and tender on the meat. Most siew yoke has a little saltiness at the bottom of the meat as they usually marinated them with salt (and sometimes “five spices”). Siew yoke is a popular meat for Chinese communities around the world and KL too.


Char Siew or BBQ Pork Belly is another hot favourite among the local Chinese community. Unlike the char siew from the Southern region states of Malaysia, Singapore and East Malaysia, KL’s version is often caramelized and roasted till dark red in colour while the other region’s char siew is dyed to red colour on the outer layer and they usually use lean meat. KL’s version is usually three layers meat and it often tastes sweet. The best char siew is juicy and tender and almost melt in your mouth.

  1. i have been hurt before. with ordering hokkien mee in johor. (ok it was on the way to pulau tioman)

  2. due to raising cost most of the so called malaysian good food had drop in standard, if you have good tongue, you should know this.

  3. Hi Chun Man,

    Yes, I do agree with your statement. Some of them either losing the portion or lack the quality it used to possessed. Thanks for your comment.


  4. The LAM MEE doesn’t taste like 1997-1999. When reach 2004 it sucks, always missing that 1 particular taste. Don’t know why people still crazy for it.

  5. I have been planning for a World tour, and my wife and I purchased some attractions tickets, for the BonAppetour dinners (a dining experience with locals) and many more. If you like to know more check out the site, we have hosts for different places including Kuala Lumpur.
