Meng Kee Char Siew

P1010839

Half lean, half fat

Everyone has a favourite char siew place and for char siew lovers, it can spark a good debate on which place serves the best in Klang Valley.

My personal favourites are De Champion Duck and Toast & Roast, but many swear by Meng Kee Char Siew. And since my new office location is a 10-minute drive to Glenmarie, I decided to revisit this popular spot.

It’s best to get there before the lunch crowd does. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for a table or share one with strangers. I ordered a plate of char siew and liver sausages, and beansprouts to share with rif.

The char siew was still as good as I remembered it to be – gloriously fatty with caramelized, lightly charred edges. Also not bad was the liver sausage; smoky sweet with little or no metallic taste.

Do yourself a favour and skip the beansprouts. This was hardly crunchy with too much sauce. The bill came up to RM24 for the two of us. Not cheap for such a small portion of meat, but it’s an occasional treat I guess.

      Yeah, I don’t like liver but I enjoy liver sausages. Weird hor? :)

  3. When I work at Glenmarie I use to eat over there..

  4. Didn’t know they serve liver sausage. But then again, I’d probably not order it. Haha.

      But why?? Liver sausage is yummy. :D

  5. The liver sausage if not mistaken is made from minced meat only and no liver in it? I never have this in the restaurant, hubby will tapao for me if he happen to be nearby there.

I will definitely won’t go back again as the price is sky high not really worth for the money. this restaurant only good for those rich wanker.
