Restoran Meng Shiang @ Tmn Yulek, Cheras
Restoran Meng Shiang in Taman Cheras is a must-try place, famed for its char siew (BBQ pork) and wantan noodles. I was told that this place serves "the best char siew in Cheras". The owner's husband learnt how to roast char siew from a Hong Kong chef, and the couple have been selling the roast meat for over 20 yrs. Customers can wait up to 30-40 minutes for this delicious wantan noodle. this stall is super popular. Apart from char siew, the stall also serves barbequeued pork ribs, which are a rare treat nowadays. Not many hawkers can produce premium-grade char siew that is tasty and tender. Instead of slicing the slab of char siew, Janet chops them into thick pieces of char siew and served with the noodles.

Wantan mee with char siew, RM4.50
The char siew as it was tender and will totally melt-in-the-mouth. The caramelised skin was so delicious. The wantan noodles were springy and aromatic from the “Char Siew” (Caramelized BBQ Pork) and sauce made it perfect
Wantan Char Siew Mee (Large), RM6.50
Speechless! When I took a bit into the meat, it was crispy on its outer crust and eventually melted in my mouth. The wantan noodles were springy but the star of this plate was truly the char siew.
Wantan Noodle Soup, RM4.50
The noodles which came with a separate small plate of char siu and wantan served together with the soup noodles.
Char Siew/ BBQ Pork
No artificial colouring or preservatives are used and the secret to the tenderness and taste of the meat lies solely in the marinade ingredients and roasting technique. When you bite into chunky meat you'll be surprised how tender the meat is, with it sticky caramelized sugar combined with the tender meat, it was excellent stuff. Usually char siu is filled with layers of fat to ensure it's tender, here even the lean parts tasted so good.
Total paid for Lunch, RM38.00
