Meng Kee Char Siew Wan Tan Mee @Restoran Meng Shiang

‘What to eat in Cheras’ I asked my friend one day.
“Oh, there’s plenty of good eats in Cheras! Let’s plan a Cheras food outing and I can be your guide!” he said enthusiastically.

Well, how do I say no to such a great offer? 🙂

And so the #BeckyCherasInvasion came about.
We started pretty well with this lipsmacking char siew (BBQ pork) in Restoran Meng Shiang.
The texture is pretty amazing and it is certainly one of the best char siew I’ve had. 🙂

Others that I’ve liked?
Well, Toast and Roast in SS2 is one. Restaurant Spring Golden in Shah Alam is another.
IF you’re in Cheras, come here and order a big portion and have enjoy biting into firm yet tender pork. The cuts here are big and it gives a better chew than those wafer thin slices commonly served with wan tan mee.

Another thing I like about the char siew here?
Even the lean parts taste good! And it wasn’t too caramelized or sticky or overly sweet, yet the ubiquitous charred tops are present.

The marinate is just enough to flavour the meat without going overboard on the sweetness. Meng Kee’s reputation for char siew is very well deserved.

The noodles are pretty bad though. Springy and thin, it is the usual commercialized versions used by many wan tan mee stalls. Nothing good about it at all.
A disclaimer here – some may like it but our group of 4 that morning all found it rather mediocre and only finished the char siew.

The wan tan (meat dumplings) that came with the noodles were worse. Small in size with barely any meat,

A normal serving is RM5.50 while an upgradable version (extra meat) is RM6.50.

Good stuff and I’ll definitely return. For the char siew. ONLY the char siew.

    Just went to Meng Shiang Restoran for Char Siew Wonton mee this morning but it no longer run by the usual people. Even the wonton mee look and taste different and dissappointing. Was told that the previous owner is ‘taking a break’. Ask the serving Indon girl, she says she ‘don’t know anything’. Some thing is wrong, where has the original Meng Kee Char Siew Wonton Mee gone???

      Ohh noes!
      No wonder the noodles were bad. How was the char siew for you? not comparable to “the old times” as well?
