It's almost the weekend so why don't you indulge in some sticky and sinful char siu? This place is my all time favourite for char siu, something which I don't usually eat much of because it's extremely hard to find the right variety. My previous mainstay for char siu used to be at Sunrise Duck in Petaling Jaya but sadly they have stopped serving it hence this has been the next best thing.
Located in the row of shophouses which has been given new life by more hip and modern restaurants, this place is always packed during lunchtime. They have two identical stalls chopping and serving the barbequed meat and steamed chicken hence waiting for food is not too long. The chicken is not fantastic but it's a must order with the char siu. I also love the crunchy bean sprouts you can also order that adds a slightly healthier perspective to the sinful meal. Incidentally the char siu at this place is barbequed in a huge clay oven which looks like a tandoor oven.
Recently, I have noticed that the char siu's taste has changed slightly and it doesn't taste as nice as before. Is it just my acute tastebuds or do you also feel the same way as I do? Kinda strange as I see the old man who owns the stall is still around hence I suspect they have either changed suppliers for their ingredients or he has handed part of the reins to the second generation to handle.
