Best Char Siew in Petaling Jaya

Written by Updated ago

Often noted as one of the more popular ways to flavour and prepare barbecued pork in Cantonese cuisine, a lot of us can’t help but indulge in the sweet, porky goodness that is char siew. Regardless of the cut used (i.e. loin, belly, butt, fat, neck), every one of us looks for the same thing in a serving of char siew. The crispy caramelised skin oozing with strong honey flavour together with the flavourful meat that melts in your mouth and bursts with decadent pork flavours are just the starting point of what keeps us coming back for more. So without further ado, here are a few notable places in Petaling Jaya where you can get your char siew fix.

    Ong Lai @ Sunway PyramidNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The first thing that comes to mind when you first have a look at the plate of char siew and siew yoke rice at Ong Lai is how simple the dish looks. The dish only has a mound of rice, a few slices of char siew and siew yoke, as well as a tiny salad on the side. Upon the first bite, you can sense how fragrant and flavourful the rice is. Adding to that, the siew yoke adds great texture to the dish with its crispy exterior and smooth, tiny layers of fat in between. The char siew has just the right balance of rich pork flavour and honey glaze to help elevate the dish further.

    Tips

    Add some of the chilli sauce on the side to the plate for more heat and flavour.

    Things to expect

    The combinations can also include roast duck and roast chicken.

    Best with

    Have one of the many tropical teas to help cleanse the palette after having the dish.

    At Toast & Roast, you are more often than not coming to eat one of two things, which are the char siew, as well as the Hakka noodles. The char siew here consistently uses a half fatty and half lean cut of meat, known to a lot of people as ‘pun fei sao’, which has been noted to give the perfect amount of bite and “melt in your mouth” combination. The pieces of char siew are charcoal barbecued to perfection as the exterior of these pieces have a slight char that gives it an almost crispy texture and a smoky caramelised flavour that is unforgettable.

    Tips

    The minced meat in the Hakka mee can be replaced with char siew pieces if you can’t get enough of it.

    Things to expect

    There is barely any decor in the restaurant besides the chalkboard menu.

    Best with

    The Hakka mee is a must to accompany the portion of char siew.

    Restoran Char Siew Zhai Wantan MeeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    You know you’re headed in the right direction when the name of the restaurant has the exact dish you’ve been itching to get. Fortunately, the title isn’t all smoke & mirrors as the char siew wantan mee and char siew rice is truly a delight to dig into. The cut of char siew you get with your plate of either wantan mee or rice can vary between the ‘pun fei sao’ cut and a slightly leaner cut; or it can have a mix of both in the same plate, which helps to add a slight variety to the plate and ultimately set the dish apart from the other servings of char siew out there.

    Tips

    Go for the homemade wantan noodles for a better bite and experience as opposed to a portion of rice.

    Things to expect

    The char siew sauce is served separately to cater to the different taste buds.

    Best with

    The crunchy sui kow (dumplings in soup) will greatly complement your char siew dish.

    Ah Khai Famous Char Siew Chicken RiceNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The char siew served at Ah Khai is most certainly on another level, which comes as no surprise since the cook and stall owner (known to the masses as Ah Khai) used to work in Hong Kong to master the technique of roasting. All those years in Hong Kong certainly paid off as a massive number of customers are drawn to the char siew here for it’s wonderfully crisp texture on the outside and immense flavour when you do take the first bite. To make things better, you can even choose the ratio of fat to meat content that you’d like in your serving of char siew to further maximise a great eating experience.

    Tips

    Order the best cut to suit your taste buds.

    Things to expect

    There isn’t as much char siew sauce in this plate.

    Best with

    Have a side of roast or steamed chicken to get a mix of both char siew and chicken with your plate of rice.

    Located in the Happy Mansion apartment block lies Restoran Choon Yien, a restaurant that needs no introduction to food fanatics out there as the chicken rice and char siew rice stall here has been attracting large masses of customers for almost two decades. As far as the char siew goes, only pork belly is exclusively used and it is cooked over a charcoal fire, which gives the char siew an unforgettable “melt in your mouth” sensation coupled with the crispy, caramelised skin that gives the defining crackle you look for when you bite into a great piece of char siew.

    Tips

    Come just before lunch time to secure a seat here.

    Things to expect

    The behaviour of the owner can be slightly erratic and uncomfortable, so watch what you say or do.

    Best with

    Begin the meal with the complimentary soup of the day.

    Flying Wan Tan MeeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    If you’re wondering how a name like this came about, you’ll be surprised how apt it is for this roadside wantan mee stall in the Seapark area. When the shop owner makes the wantan noodles, he’s literally flinging the noodles to an almost unnecessarily great height, thus the “flying” portion of the name. Regardless of whether this is a gimmick or a legitimate technique to get better noodles, the char siew pieces that go along with this plate of wantan noodles go together effortlessly. The prominent honey and smoky flavour in the char siew helps to add more layers of flavour into the wantan noodle and sauce mix that were otherwise not present, ultimately giving a dish that will have you coming back for more.

    Tips

    Make sure to go there early enough if you’re having supper here as the stall closes just before midnight.

    Things to expect

    There might not be enough char siew pieces for you in this dish to match the amount of noodles.

    Best with

    The complimentary bowl of wantan soup will help wash down this dish.

    RM5.00
