Best Char Siew in PJ

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.

    Restoran Chan Meng KeeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    When someone asks for the best wantan mee and char siew in SS2, no one stutters or gives a second thought to say that Chan Meng Kee is the prime selection. The establishment has been feeding large crowds of people craving their wantan mee and char siew for many years now, and show no signs of slowing down. All the noodles are cooked plate by plate with a decent serving of char siew (usually from the ‘pun fei sao’ cut) put on top, which helps with the consistency of the dish. The strong fragrance and rich flavours from the char siew pieces work well with the noodles to get a decadent dish worth remembering.

    Tips

    The char siew pieces can also be had with rice.

    Things to expect

    The char siew can be taken away on its own.

    Best with

    The sui kow will greatly complement your char siew dish.

    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

    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.
