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.

Food: 7.5/10 (non halal)
Verdict: Good char siew, but pretty pricey.
