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.

    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.

    Seng Kee Chicken RiceNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Sweet and soft. These two words are best used to describe the char siew here in Seng Kee Chicken Rice, Damansara Uptown. The char siew is well-balanced between lean meat and fats, that leaves you with a taste of satisfaction. It is not over-burned, and the taste of the fat layers linger in your mouth, so if you're someone who just can't get enough of char siew with fat layers, this is definitely the place for you. You can also dip it in their ginger paste and chili sauce for a more unique taste.

    Tips

    Free delivery* is available for Damansara Uptown area!
