My sister introduced me to Meng Kee Char Siew Restaurant not too long ago. I’ve been to this eatery twice so far and the char siew quality differs so much both time. It’s like eating at two different restaurants with the same name. I will also compare the char siew from Meng Kee to the one I had at Chan Meng Kee Restaurant. The names sounded almost similar, don’t they? *chuckles
From our first visit…
As you can guess, Meng Kee Char Siew Restaurant is fame for its char siew.
Blanched bean sprouts. If you can help it don’t order this. Too weak. One of the worst I’ve eaten. The rice (not in picture) is also quite weak.
Roasted chicken. Well, the taste is just typical. Nothing too exciting. Our plate of roasted chicken was quite tough.
Chinese innards sausages. No idea how it tastes like. I didn’t eat this.
The star of the restaurant. The oh-so-good-looking char siew!!!
Sweet melt in your mouth with charred flavour. Gorgeous. And the fatty layers… ohh so good. 🙂 In my opinion, the char siew from Meng Kee is better by a hair’s breadth compared to the char siew from Chan Meng Kee Restaurant. The difference is that Meng Kee char siew is a tad sweeter which really suit my palate.
Char siew wan tan mee were sold out during our first visit. Hence we came back again for 2nd round. This time early morning.
Pickled green chilies – a must have for wan tan mee.
Char siew wan tan mee with fried mini dumplings @ RM4.50. I was expecting the exact char siew quality from my first visit unfortunately this was not the case. The char siew given were lean and tough which make the whole wan tan mee eating experience a dull one. The only consolation is the yummy fried mini dumplings.
Sui kau aka dumplings. Too tame. Fairly unappetizing for both dumplings and broth. Each sui kau cost RM1.00.
A typical Chinese restaurant setting. They were going to relocate although I have no idea when. The new address should be No. 30, Jalan Pekedai U1/36 (just a few shops away from its current location; opposite Meng Kee Peking Duck).
Parking is fairly easy to find too (for our case when we were there both times).
