Char Siew @ Famous Seremban Favorites Restaurant, Sunway Mas PJ
Very non-halal post ahead yo! Ever since I was allocated to work in a project at Subang Jaya I have been doing some food exploration in the area nearby. Char Siew (BBQ roasted pork) happens to be one of the prominent food there. For example, Meng Kee and Spring Garden at Shah Alam and the one I am currently posting – Famous Seremban Favorites Restaurant at Sunway Mas, Petaling Jaya. Oh my I think I am the slowest to blog about this place, epic fail lol.
A person’s portion of Char Siew cost RM4 and you can choose the type of meat you want: lean, ‘pun fei sao’ (half lean half fatty) and fatty ones too maybe? I dare to say that most of the time we’re consuming Char Siew, it’s either when we are having Wantan Mee or Roasted Pork Rice.
And for me, my mom used to buy Char Siew from the morning market as a supplementary dish every Sunday. My impression towards Char Siew was lean, tough and requires a lot of chewing, until I tried Famous Seremban Favorites’. It was so good it totally changed my perception towards Char Siew and I am actually actively hunting for it nowadays.
I feel the perfect cut for Char Siew would be ‘pun fei sao’ ones (too bad for the weight watchers and dieters) with layers of sweet, soft juicy fat that melts in your mouth. I am not exaggerating here, the meat really dissolves just by moving it around in your mouth and applying little pressure using the tongue.
The Char Siew already tastes great on its own but feel free to dip them into the Char Siew sauce for a sweeter, enhanced flavor.
Besides BBQ pork and roasted meat rice, they also have a couple of other dishes available like Wantan Mee, Hakka Mee, Dumplings (Sui Kao), meat balls and many more. I didn’t try the Wantan Mee but two of my friends who tried it said it was good. But the Char Siew given in the noodles tasted normal only, totally no fight compared to those ordered individually.
I had the Hakka Mee twice, and both times I felt it was a little bland and had to add some light soya sauce to it for some extra saltiness. Besides that it was pretty good and I particularly liked the slim noodles’ texture, very Q and slurpy.
The Sui Kao was nothing great but still pretty enjoyable for the huge size and generous filling. Each Sui Kao easily required four to five bites to finish.
If you are spotted photographing the food by the boss, he would come over and ask if you are a blogger and ask your blog address. Based on his facial expression I am damn sure he never heard of my blog before lol.
OK, I know I haven’t blog about Meng Kee’s Char Siew yet but just for your information I already tasted it (Shah Alam branch). And me and all my lunch mates unanimously agree that Famous Seremban Favorites‘ Char Siew is the better one in comparison. I don’t know how it would fare against Spring Garden and the rest but I am really eager to find out. This is kinda exciting lol. Check out Christine’s review for the location map!

I first visited Tony Roma’s early this year and left disappointed with the set lunch they were promoting. After that, many left comments suggesting I go for the food they’re most famous for – ribs. Pork ribs are available in UK/Singapore but since the menu in Malaysia is halal, the next best thing we can

Waroeng Penyet Restaurant serves Traditional Indonesian Food and can be found at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara. It is a relatively new restaurant, considering the fact that it was opened last year by 4 Indonesians living in Singapore. I came to know about the restaurant through their flyers while shopping at The Curve few weeks ago.
