I first tried Chan Meng Kee about 2 years ago and I’ve not had their wan tan mee since then. Know why? Because it’s sincerely bad for the heart. What does wan tan mee (won ton mee) has got to do with the heart? It’s the char siew man! Plus it’s located in SS2, one of the most difficult places to find parking on a Saturday afternoon. My first impression on their food especially their char siew wan tan mee was very good. That’s why I have fond memories of their char siew. Now 2 years later, I’m back. How was it? Read on… hehehe
Note: All the photos below were photographed at their old premise at 32 Jalan SS 2/66. They have moved to a new location (5 shops away) since September 2014.
Char siew wan tan mee @ RM6.00. I find the wan tan noodles and wan tan (not in picture) to be mediocre. The price is slightly on the high side.
The caramelized part (black area) is to die for!!! The fat part just melts in your mouth while I don’t like the lean meat at all. If I have one wish to improve this char siew it would be to make it sweeter.
Ta da… clean plate except for the oil and dark soy sauce.
We tapau-ed (takeaway) 300g of char siew @ RM21.00. Really the lean meat puts me off. But give me the fatty part anytime.
Where all the chopping of char siew and steamed chicken happens. I find their steamed chicken at mediocre level.
The place is people-packed but one can easily find seats. Twice I came, twice I did not have to wait. Lucky perhaps?
