Meng Kee Char Siew, Kuala Lumpur
Yay! Meng Kee (13 Tengkat Tong Shin) was open this time! I was getting a bit worried too since I was arriving after 2 PM, but they still had plenty of char siew hanging in the glass case when I arrived, so there were no problems. Just as I remembered it, this stuff was great ("pork-flavored candy with a greasy aftertaste," as I like to put it).
Now, the meat was a little tougher today than I seem to recall (and there was a strand of human hair on my plate too), but none of that really mattered in the end, as I still gobbled this stuff up quickly, which is particularly impressive for a guy who really doesn't like sweet-tasting things either.
They have chicken rice here too, but I didn't bother with any of that, especially since they give you some of the rice and soup anyway. The hot sauce surprised me; it was a bit more like a Mexican salsa, with chunky bits in a thin and mildly sour juice that went well with the rice. The standard issue dragon breath alert still applies though.
Digested at 2:49 PM
