These are words commonly used to describe the char siew (BBQ pork) from Toast & Roast in SS2, PJ. We are completely smitten with the char siew here, hence whenever the craving for char siew hits, only the best at Toast & Roast will do.
I always complain to Hubby that SS2 is too far a drive, but once we get here, and sink our teeths into the char siew, I wonder why we didn't come sooner. Since trying the char siew here in January 2011, we are happy to report that it has remained a firm favorite with our family.
Check out the beautiful layers of lean meat and melting fat!
Nice caramelised exterior..
The Premium Char Siew is half fat-half lean and toasted to perfection using charcoal, hence it is slightly charred on the exterior with a gorgeous caramelised finish. We ordered a medium portion (RM16) to share and it was devoured in no time. In my opinion, the char siew here is thick and chunky and has the perfect fat-meat ratio - that's why biting into each piece of char siew is like having a piece of heaven. I love eating mine, dipped slightly in the thick, sweet sauce provided.
For us the perfect accompaniment to the char siew here is a bowl of Hakka Noodles (RM6). The springy noodles are topped with minced pork and crunchy fish skin for some added texture. We also like the crispy deep fried wantans (RM3).

Refreshing roselle sour plum (RM2.70)
Chop chop chop!
Verdict: The char siew here is definitely the best in my books.
