Best Char Siew Rice in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Commonly found hanging on hooks behind glass windows of Chinese restaurants, Char Siew or also known as Pork Roast just clap onto your eyes with its glistening deep mahogany colour. The pork meat is elegantly coated with honey, five-spice powder and other ingredients then roasted at indirect heat which gives it the appealing caramelised layer and juicy meat sitting beneath. It’s usually sliced into chunks and paired with a mound of rice and chili dip, earning itself as one of the finest comfort food. Eateries below are among Penangites hall of fame and hands down they are impeccable, so why wait?

    This canary-yellow building seems to be an institution of Chinese cuisine; there is an endless range of mouthwatering meals matching the never-ending crowd. It’s proud to say that this success started with a little stall back in 1965, today with two shop lots combined, it’s tough to sight an empty table during peak hours, however, worth waiting guaranteed. Their signature dish, Double-Roasted Pork is the real winner; you would drool all the way. The bite-sized morsels of pork belly are roasted then stir-fried with sauce and handful of chopped chili padi. The honey gives it a glistening and gooey coat, and each mouthful is packed with sweet, salty, crunchy and juicy, your belly cries for more. Massaging the pork wonder into steamed rice ladled with their fish curry is a match made in gastronomy heaven!
