*Notice: We found out that Ah Khai is no longer manning the stall, the name of the stall has been changed as well.
I have been exploring PJ quite frequent recently. When Calvin said that he wanna bring me to his favourite char siew place somewhere nearby 3 Two Square few weeks ago, I was rubbing my palms with glee.
The stall, named Ah Khai Famous Char Siew Chicken Rice with bright yellow signboard is located inside Simon’s Delight, opposite Sea View Coffee Shop and facing a row of double storey houses at SS20. Apparently, the proprietor, Ah Khai has been working for sometime in Hong Kong (where he acquired the recipe to make char siew) before he come back and opened his own stall here. Apart from char siew, he also serves roast pork and roast chicken rice.
As usual, I opt for the half lean and half fat cut which comes with a bowl of soup as well (RM 4.00-4.50 for single portion). The outer layer was nicely caramelised, a little sticky and smoky-sweet with slightly charred bits. The meat was tender, literally melt-in-the-mouth sensation but somehow, a little bland as if the meat was not marinated thoroughly before being barbequed. The accompanied char siew sauce was a letdown too.
Verdict: FSF still remains at the top of my favourite char siew place but it wouldn’t hurt to try out other places once a while. Who knows, you might just hit the jackpot? 🙂
It seems like FoodPoi had found this place too.

those charry bits that’s stickingly sweet are to die for! I still miss FSF though.
and I have yet to return, as the maze of Sunway Mas intrigued me …
The rice doesn’t look that good hor…like broken rice. Ahh…char siu….long long time since i last had it.
PenangTuaPui: Er… you prefer it to be only fat parts? Hehe.
J2Kfm: Come down more often and you’ll get to know the way in no time!
Precious Pea: Oh, the rice were clumpy actually and although it’s oil rice, it doesn’t smell like one. When are we going to FSF again? 😛
wow, the char siew really looks mouth watering….yes, is fattening, but yet who want to eat no oil char siew, after all ya!
Lucky just had a good dose of FSF over last weekend. Ate there & packed 2 strips home. hehe.
charsiew must be like the most disputed dish, on the BEST charsiew in town list, huh? lol. everyone has a fav…
Wah, if every flogger has their own fav charsiew, then a non-floggie like me must visit EVERY ONE of them to taste and figure out for my own leh.
Check your FSF as well. FSF looks much better!
SimpleGirl: Yeah, who would want a dry char siew!
Tummythoz: Wah… such delicious sin 😛
Cumi&Ciki: But it seems like most of the bloggers’ fav is FSF at the meantime?
LFB: LOL! And I was thinking that you’re gonna say “OMG!”
Chin: That’s why it’s still remain top in my list!
oh, no as good as FSF? hmmm… so, when are you going to FSF again? can meet you there for some sinful treat hahaha
I was wondering if you would ever be interested in becoming a featured publisher with Foodbuzz.com? If so please conctact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Char Siew rice or chicken rice is a good choice when I don ‘t have idea on what to eat.
That stall looks familiar. I think the production house call Red Communications is just around there. Hahaha anyway you can move to next location for char siew. It doesn’t have the char siew shiny look that lures ppl to it.
SC: Hahaha, good good, will arrange one day 🙂
Little Inbox: I’m sure there are other type of food nearby the place where you can find char siew/chicken rice. 🙂
Jian: Wah, if it’s too shiny, means it’s very fat!
Thanks for patronizing my coffeeshop :p
Simon: Hahahaha! You’re most welcome 😛
Oh, now you made me want to get my char siew from FSF. You know for some reason i stay so near that place but I never seem to be visiting it as often as others. Haha….
Cutie: Staying near FSF is a privilege! You should visit at least once a month. 😛
food poi insisted that we must go for ah kai..he also reckons tat its way better than FSF wo..will try it n let u know
KampungBoyCityGal: That’s my opinion on Ah Khai.. yeah, do go try it out and let us know your opinion. 🙂

Liz Stambaugh: Hello there. Thanks for the invite but I have already sign up under another blogger’s referral. 🙂
darn…looked so promising…
ciki of cumi & ciki brought me one of the best charsiu i’ve ever tasted recently…
FBB: Where is that place!
This is indeed one of the best char siew in Klang Valley. Between Meng Kee and Ah Khai, each got their own specialty.
