The hot chick and I met up with Kerol for lunch a couple weekends ago, and she suggested that we give one of her new found places a try. We met up at Aman Suria and headed to the Famous Seremban Favorites Restaurant for what she described as the best char siew (bbq pork, 叉烧) in town. This is someone who recommended me the very good char siew at Meng Kee, Glenmarie, so I actually had pretty high hopes.

awesome char siew (bbq pork, 叉烧)

The restaurant is actually situated at Sunway Mas Commercial Centre. I actually went to a couple bak kut teh places at the area: Wong Siong Wong, and Klang (Dry) Bak Kut Teh. The place is set up like a kopitiam but with only one stall overdose with plenty of char siew. Other than char siew and Hakka noodle, they also offer chicken rice, sui kao, and wantan. The interior is pretty clean and comfortable. As it was still rather early on Saturday, the place was rather empty. However, I have heard that the weekday lunch crowd can be quite crazy.

look at the amount of char siew there

We ordered 3 bowls of Hakka Noodle and a big plate of char siew to share. If you’ve never had it, the noodle, like most Hakka food, is rather plain. The texture and taste of the noodle is pretty similar wantan mee. However, instead of dark sauce and wantan, Hakka Noodle comes with ground pork and almost no sauce.

As for the char siew, it was really awesome. The texture was just so soft and tender, and together with the char siew sauce provided, it was actually slightly better than the already very good char siew place in Glenmarie I mentioned earlier. We actually ordered another plate just to satisfy the taste buds.

With drinks, the meal cost us around RM 30 for the three of us. Pretty decent price and definitely awesome taste. You should give this place a try if you are a char siew lover. Couldn’t get any better than this.

Seems like so nice eh … Anyway, just came across a chicken rice stall at setapak, near TARC there … It’s call ‘Lam Gei’ (Uncle Lim) chicken rice stall … Although a bit stuffy because all the students there … but the rice is very nice … May be you can try if you somewhere near there … Anyway, do you have any Dimsum buffet recommendation in KL area ?
