KL: Char siew discovery

KLfoodie | Jul 14, 2009 07:03 AM

Discovered a new char siew place today called Soon Fatt Roasted Duck, located in Jalan Pasar, just down the road from Wentworth hotel. Opted for half fat-half lean (to appease high cholesterol conscience). Char siew was nicely charred (especially the crispy ends), glistening in sticky sauce and was served with extra sauce & cucumber slices. The black pepper roast duck was also superb, crispy skin, juicy meat and not too salty. The normal roast duck was not special though, we ordered some for comparison. Thought it was a good alternative to the famous Alor place and Oversea, where the char siew can be too fatty sometimes. This place is a street side stall, best go early on weekdays (by half twelve). An idea would be to eat this char siew as an appetiser and then, proceed to the fantastic pudu roast pork (siew yook) place in the same neighbourhood.
