Meng Kee Char Siu @ Alor Kopitiam, Jalan Alor

IMG_8025

The rave was on.
But we didn’t manage to catch that fever during the Meng Kee heat.
Only manage to do so after more than one year dating pork sausages and fish & chips in the land known as YOU KAY!
Char Siew fix! Char Siew fix!
We didn’t even pay a visit to Meng Kee when they were still based at the iconic spot at Tengkat Tong Shin *smack forehead*. I bet almost all of you knew that Meng Kee had already shifted to the Alor Kopitiam at Jalan Alor.

We were melted.
An immediate recall of what we had at the Seremban Favourites. But I couldn’t tell which was better. I just love both. The char siew was tender and succulent, with a hint of sweetness and charred taste at the caramelized outer.
Too bad we didn’t manage to give this a try while they were still running business over at Tengkat Tong Shin. Heard they were way better there.
To our surprise, it was an easy task to score a table during our lunch visit. Not as packed as I thought. Hmm…

The steamed chicken was only mediocre and we were not expecting much since we aimed for char siew all along.

A return for more Char Siew fix again?
Maybe after checking out more of Char Siew Zhai and 747 Char Siew for more comparison 🙂

    I don't really like their steamed chicken. No kick after the char siew. =P

    Char Siew Zhai's version is not as good as 747… I think that you will love 747's char siew instead 🙂
    nowadays.. I'd go to Meng Kee in Glenmarie or 747 in Aman Suria to get my fix!

    hi Christine, i used to have a very very high expectation for their cs after watching the Ah-xian (Taste Jason) show in AEC. But then, it was somehow just disappointed me BIG TIME, as well as all my friends i brought there.
    their chicken, Like what u said, not the main character, but u are compulsory to order chicken b4 ordering CS and their chicken meat… SO HARD!! how to eat?! @.@
    ok, their CS, they just simply chop one plate for u, even thou u already told them u want "half lean half fat" ! @>@
    perhaps you can say i am bias or "different ppl different taste",
    around 10 of us, just felt the char siu was simply, ISH!!!!!
