Venue: Meng Kee Char Siew – Jalan Alor.
Date: Jan 9th 2010, Sat.
Order: Single portion Char Siew Rice.
Taste: Diabetically, teeth- jarringly sweet, due to its outer glaze.
Texture: Meat was soft & tender, which was it’s only saving grace.
Fat : Solid, most certainly isn’t the melt- in- the- mouth kind that I prefer.
Rice: Clumpy & wet.
Verdict: Seriously below expectations, given its reputation. (TNG’s personal opinion ok)
My first visit was somewhere in April 2008 with a couple of friends. It was still located at Tong Shin back then.
It wasn’t until I started blogging that I realized that this Meng Kee was supposedly one of the mighty Kings of Char Siew in KL.
I was surprised, for that visit didn’t leave any lasting impressions on me so I thought a re-visit was warranted given that I had just finished a FSF vs SFS char siew thesis 😉
If only it was as good as it looks.
