Fancy tasting one of the best Char Siu (Caramelized BBQ Pork) and Siu Yoke (Crackling Roast Pork) in Kuala Lumpur? Then you have to get yourself to Kedai Kopi Tian Hong in Salak South â€“ to be exact, itâ€™s Salak South Industrial Park.
Different people may have different taste buds, although my eldest brother may disagree with me on this, but I still prefer Tian Hongâ€™s specialty and think that they are the best in Kuala Lumpur.
Kedai Kopi Tian Hong opens daily from the morning till 3.00 â€“ 4.00 pm. Now I would suggest you to go during lunch time at around 1.00 â€“ 2.00pm because thatâ€™s when the Siu Yoke (Crackling Roast Pork) is served fresh out of the oven. If youâ€™re there anytime earlier, you can still enjoy some succulent Char Siu and chicken although the latter isnâ€™t much to shout about.
For Char Siu, the meat is typically a shoulder cut of domestic pork which is then seasoned with a mixture of honey and some other spices that turn the exterior layer of the meat dark red and gives it the characteristic caramelized glaze.
The Siu Yoke is a piece of pork with seasoning – being roasted to perfection in a charcoal furnace at high temperature. The aromatic and great tasting Siu Yoke has a crispy skin on the outer layer â€“ with juicy and tender meat on the inner side.
Tian Hongâ€™s Char Siu is succulent and caramalised to perfection. The Char Siu sauce that goes with it is just too hard to resist. I usually ask for extra Char Siu sauce to go with my rice. The Siu Yoke is the best tasting roasted pork Iâ€™ve ever eaten. Before that, I was never a big fan of Siu Yoke as I hated the porky smell. But after Iâ€™ve tasted Tian Hongâ€™s Siu Yoke, I just must have it every time Iâ€™m there. Itâ€™s a must to order and itâ€™s only ready after 1.00pm.
Other than that, they also serve roasted and steamed chicken too. Thereâ€™s even some side dishes served for the lunch crowd and soup of the day is free.
Now, it can get pricy when youâ€™re not careful of how much food youâ€™re ordering. Usually, it will cost us around RM10-15 each person if we go in a group. But single dishes with just Char Siu, Siu Yoke, chicken or even mixed will cost around RM5-7 per person.
Now donâ€™t take my word for it. Give it a try yourself. So far, Iâ€™ve introduced it to many of my friends and colleagues and they all loved it as much as I do.
