Meng Kee Char Siew 3

Fine cut of pork belly carefully tenderised and marinated with thick laced of maltose, hoi sin sauce and seasoning are the basic method of making a good piece of Char Siew. But what makes Meng Kee’s so special?

A lot of people may know how to indulge a good pieces of Char Siew but not many would know the secret of making a great Char Siew, the secret lies on the texture with awesome succulent taste! A great careful selection of a soft and tender piece of pork belly is needed, layered of lean meat and fat. A good piece may not need to be tenderised but tenderising is important, preferable the use of natural tenderising such as pineapple juice and even to the extend of using papaya. I definitely will stay away from using chemical meat tenderiser which don’t jive with me. Tenderising the meat will give the melting fat texture to the Char Siew.

As for Meng Kee, I recalled it was also the technique of roasting that had won many hearts while indulging their Char Siew. Reroasting and redipping into the marinated sauce process was also the secret of achievement the ulitimate Char Siew.

As for me my preference, the perfect piece of Char Siew must have at least some burn on it which stain the burning aroma and fragranance. I just love Meng Kee’s Char Siew as they able to retain the great texture of the Char Siew, soft, tender rather not too soft(not too over tenderised) and the juicyness of the sweet caramel sauce lingering over the piece of well roasted pork belly.

Not to forget, Sunny just love their Roasted Sausage (Siew Cheong), leaned and with a hint of chinese wine in taste. Definitely a winner to me!

To spice up the meal, Meng Kee here also served roast chicken and poached chicken. I found both was acceptable but other apecialised chicken rice shops can taste better.

Meng Kee’s Char Siew is defitely on my top list as I find it’s meat texture was good, not overly tenderised and the caramelised char siew sauce that lingered around the meat was just terrific!

Meng Kee’s Char Siew is defintely the NO.1 and the BEST Char Siew in town . . . . . . . . . I am a true believer in food, Sid.

    Ha!Ha! I knew someone is going to blog on this Meng Kee, never knew is u guys. Living round the neighbourhood ,finding non-halal food is tough , Meng Kee is a blessing for us here. It amased me u guys can find the place(they closed on sundays). 100% agreed on yr commend…heavenly char siew…addictable.
    There,s also another char siew as good if not better in Jalan Peel, cheras (near Queen kopitiam not far from Carrefore).
    Yes, papaya (or the leaves) is a better way of tenderising meat, i use it in my barbecue too. Long live char siew and Happy New Year !
