I used to stay in Taman Paramount when I first came down to KL which is at my aunts place, I constantly dine at those 2 coffee shop for its cheap food and economy rice and I totally never knew there is one hidden Char Siew stall right behind at it which never mention by my aunt also. Ah Khai famous Char Siew Chicken Rice was not until one of my colleague went to ‘ta pau’ char siew for boss and client to eat for lunch, then she let us try out the char siew and its heavenly good. From there, we were talking about it how good it was and must go to the stall to eat.

**UPDATE: Ah Khai Char Siew NO LONGER OPERATE at SIMONS Delight as now had move a few shops up to RESTAURANT MEI YAN. . . .starting May 2011

It was not until last week, we decided to hunt it down for this marvelous ‘Char Siew’ that located in Section 17 hidden inside Restaurant Simon’s Delights. We manage to reach there early as the time of operating business is from 11am-1pm. . . I just cannot imagine people doing business for just 3 hours a day. It must have been brisk business.

Seeing those ‘Char Siew’ hanging there is like waving at us to order it desperately making us place our order we a portion of char siew for 3 pax a plate for 3 plates.

One of the funny thing that I ask the owner, ‘Are you Local’ cuz while I was eating there and I kept figuring, is he local or not to do such a great char siew. . and his answer Yes… I am local just that I am not as white ask you guys that work in the office, since young I got burn infront of the stove by helping parents out that’s how I turn dark or ah bu neh neh. . . I can say, a very friendly guy that talk a lot of nonsense.

‘Roast Chicken’ is quite normal, nothing much to brag about. . .

The first place of ‘Char Siew is mix with Roast Pork’ that actually we wanted to try it out too, suprisingly it turn out to be good too, with the skin roasted well till it is crispy yet do not broke our teeth, with perfect thin layer of fats in between the lean meat and dip with the chili sauce is just perfect.

After I took picture of it, this plate of combo was gone in seconds . .  till all 3 plates that got serve just gone. .  We order another round of purely char siew only.

Pure ‘Char Siew’ was one of the best char siew I have ever come accross, with it well roast char siew till it was well quoted by caramelised with the burn end layer. . You can either chose 70% fats and 30% meat as we go ahead with equal fats and meat that spread out very well, till the bite in our mouth it melts as the meat is so soft and tender till it break into slices and the fats melts along with it. . . Every piece of it, is burst with flavor and that is how we ended up ordering another two more plates purely on char siew. If you love fats like my friend, go for the heavy weight more fats less meat..you will definately enjoy it!

At the end of the meal, the coffee shop were sardin pack with people ordering char siew and tapau, we even order a few take away back to office for tea time. Surely I am going back for more, we consider it quite cheap, with so many order and it is not more than RM10. Worth Recommending this place if you are a char siew lover~

Do go early to avoid dissapointment . . .

A recommended Char Siew place~

I have always been wondering when I pass this shop no matter day or night, its always quite pack. It is that nice were the question I have been asking myself…cuz I have a very bad experience with their Sunway Branch. Till we went to lunch for the Shabu Shabu next door and they said, har..not that kind they prefer then we shifted to this shop and I start to say, weiii..don wan this shop can ah, then most of them agree here then what can I say some more. So just tag along la..

Papa Rich interior design is always kinda exclusive kopitiam concept as when I stayed at my aunts place at Seapark there are 1 Papa Rich also which is quite pack with people and the same with Old Town. Currently I would rate that Old Town main competitor is Papa Rich which had been mushrooming like crazee. Popping up in most of the makan makan area.

In the menu, picture illustration is even better than Old Town but the only thing to test on was their quality of food.

Kopi Si Peng was strong in coffee flavour but disappointing the ais is to much which for a few sips its gone. Left the ice-bone.

Their Kaya and Butter Toast’ which is a bit different because they separate it out and let you spread it over yourself and the best part is the give you the whole slice of butter. The bread was bakar to crispiness on the edge and spread kaya and butter given is just very nice.
Nasi Lemak which the rice is cook with some santan which we prefer and the curry chicken is not that spicy, a bit lemak and the sambal is just nice. Not too spicy but eat along just pull up the taste of the dish.

I love their version of ‘Curry Mee which is very lemak and a bit thick in soup base. A bit spicy yet the soup is boiling hot which suits to my likings and I eat till sweating all over.
‘Prawn Mee look very disappointed but we were surprise by the taste of it. It was serve very oily base and we slowly scoop it off and left a bit which its original version should be and the soup base is very flavourful, taste like they had take the prawn shell to crush and cook with it. Its very sweet prawn shell base aroma and added in the chili making it spicy is just perfect yet its boiling hot.
‘Dry Ipoh Koey Teow which I find it nothing special to talk about as there are better ones.
I have lost the receipt but I can say that the price is slightly more expensive than Old Town but for this branch I definitely do not mind to come here again and its a good place for hang out with friends too.

Got invited by Lucia to join dinner with her friends at SS 2. Did not know this place exist even used to stay at my aunts place nearby. I was so surprise with the crowd in this restaurant. So crowded and so pack of people. It is like, ‘Welcome, Only RM 15p/pax eat all you can’ that kind of crowd. I was already late 30 mins for the dinner and hell!!! to find a parking spot in the area is not easy. After round and round 2 rounds then round back in front of the restaurant and so ngam nice nice got 1 parking spot can fit in my small car. Lucky me~

This is Lucia and Malcom her friend which is always standby anytime and any where, with your camera ready to snap, they are ready instantly even they are still chatting. Lol. After snapping they are back to their conversation~ This is downstairs + outside of the restaurant.
We were gladly sitting upstairs with air conditioning.

Started of with ‘Salmon Lou Sang’. The salmon is so so, not that fresh yet not that hard to eat. With the sauce and everything pour in, it taste good, not too sweet for the sauce and salty and with some of the oil and spices, just ngam ngam. Nice lou sang. Did not put the after effect of the lou sang as it was too messy. Censored~

This dish don know called what as the order are all done by Malcom. When I was there, the food was like served instantly. Not much taste on this veggie. Can’t really taste the garlic also but the veggie is nicely fried.
This is the veggie with long beans fried with eggplant, mince meet and some tiny shrimps. It taste a bit spicy, but goes well along with the taste of sambal and the petai. The taste nicely covered the petai smell not that strong on it.
This is the Chicken in don know what, one of the famous dish in the restaurant as I did observe alot people ordered it. Was nicely cook, abit of sweet watermelon taste, the chicken is nicely cook and the mean is soft like steam and fried chicken.

This is their signature Taufu. It is very soft and the mince meet is a bit salty. Perfectly goes along with the taufu as it is nicely fried.

I must say that, this is the best dish of all night. The fish is nicely steam out, the meat is so soft and the fish is very fresh goes along very well with the gravy similar to soy sauce. Do not know what type of fish is this but it is very nice. Should try it out.

This is the ‘Pai Kuatcuz extra order it when i was there. The pork is very soft in it and the gravy is a bit sweet and sour.

This is the receipt for the whole course meal. The receipt comes in a total of RM198 shared among 8 people. The price is so so for the food they provide. The service is good as there are alot of worker standing by nearby. The dish name is in Chinese totally do not know how to read it. The whole experience was nice to meet you guys~
