The hunt for awesome Char Siu (caramelized BBQ pork) continues as I head down to KL city after a tipoff from a friend. According to my friend, this place served some really good Char Siu and braised pork dishes. So I decided to give it a try.
Jalan San Peng (San Peng Road) Chicken Rice stall is not your average Chicken Rice stall you would find in any restaurant; in fact, itâ€™s really one of its kind. Located by the road side along Jalan San Peng in Pudu area, this stall has been operating here for quite a while already. I remember my dad mentioned about this place ages ago but Iâ€™ve never really make an effort to find this place until now.
The steamed chicken is absolutely lovely. The smooth and tender chicken breast meat is so juicy and the soya-sauce that goes with it just makes it even tastier. Canâ€™t really remember when the last time I had such good steamed chicken; I usually donâ€™t fancy steamed chicken but thisÂ is just too good.
I gotta admit, the Char Siu here is pretty amazing too. Iâ€™m quite particular when it comes to Char Siu, it has to have the right amount of fats and lean meat. I do not fancy those heavily caramelized Char Siu that melts in your mouth, thatâ€™s because 80% of the Char Siu is covered with fats. Sure itâ€™s nice butâ€¦ you get what I mean. The Char Siu sauce that served with it is really good, a little bit on the sweet side but itâ€™s just goes well with the Char Siu.
Braised or â€˜Lohâ€™ pork, eggs and chitterlings are not a common dish at any Chicken Rice stalls. But expect to find some great tasting braised pork and chitterlings here. It really adds a great variety to the already tasty Char Siu and Chicken Rice served here.
And if youâ€™re not much of a rice person, you can always opt for â€˜Kuay Teowâ€™ soup with shredded chicken and shrimp. I havenâ€™t tried it yet but I can tell itâ€™s a favourite here too.
Overall, the food here is above satisfactory albeit the roadside ambience. Price is reasonable too, food for four only cost RM44++.
Now parking can be quite an issue. If you go during lunch break, youâ€™ll probably have to park further down the road along Jalan San Peng. There isnâ€™t plenty of proper parking available; patrons will have to take the risk parking by the road side, which is quite a norm for the regulars.
