There are many pork lovers out there when it comes to food. Just simple type any best pork food related you can see lots of searches come out and with much talk about since quite  a few months back, finally we make an effort to drop by on this much talk about among many blogger friends of mine on this caramelize Toast & Roast Char siew. .

char siew (1)

A place that is well hidden around the neighborhood yet it is very easily to be located as you enter the main road in SS2 Mall then just drive till the end you will see a few shop houses at the end which is a dead road.

char siew (2)

With so many strips of char siew hanging, these are all the temptations that keep calling our name.. . .:p

char siew (3)

pricing wise on the food is on the average side a bit more than kopitiam but on their specialist on char siew I guess its a good price. . .

char siew (5)

a more clean version of kopitiam that you can expect.

Here is the char siew as we ordered medium @ RM16

char siew (7)

Look at how well the char siew is coated, as my fave is always ‘pun fei sau’. For the first time I see a Char Siew that roast till so nice, as there are no burnt ends on it and so shinny and moist skin that s very caramelize . This Char Siew definitely stand above our expectation, the meat is soft and the taste just blend in so well, with a bit of sweet taste at the end. I sure do not mind to have the whole medium portion by myself.

As the Roast Pork do not tempt me that much but my colleague wanted to try so we ordered a small portion. @ RM 4 if not mistaken. a finely cut slice of roast pork. As a comment, don bother to order. . .

char siew (9)

Ordered their Roast Chicken and turns out to be not bad. .

char siew (10)

as many people also talk about their Hakka Mee and one thing that first catch my eyes is the noodle is showered with lots of fried pork lard. Find that the noodle is a bit dry and tasted normal and I mee pork more (Tang Pin Kitchen ss2).

char siew (11)

I cannot remember what is this already as it is the special for the day. The gravy Green Curry is too spicy that over power the taste of the meat and it was serve cold. Not even warm.

If you do come to Roast & Toast, the only thing I would recommend to order is just the Char Siew and if you would want to have noodle to go along, the Hakka Noodle is not bad lah.. If not just Char Siew alone is good enough and here is my another favourite Char SIew Stall which located at Sea PArk (Ah Khai Char Siew) which is another version of roasting. Cannot be compared.

Start off with Fish Maw Soup @ RM 20 a bland mixture of many ingredient that during CNY this is one of the soup that many people ordered. Clear in taste that makes it a perfect soup to start off with.

Every restaurant has its signature item and in Tek Sen, this Fried Roast Pork is one of their best seller that many customers will have to order if they dine here.

Followed by Inchi Kai Bin @ RM 14

tEK seng (7)

This big juicy prawns is Asam Prawns.  The flavor of tamarind is there, well coated along the prawns that every bite of the prawn is juicy yet the flavor is well balance.  RM 49

Not many people like this dish, Bitter gourd fried along with salty duck egg and mince meat, as the bitterness of it had prevent many people on liking it including me, I used to dislike this dish yet I have been tought on how to enjoy it. Since then, I do order it when I have the change. A dish that fried simple that bitterness of the vegetable is not too strong and mix well with the taste of salty duck [email protected] RM 12

tEK seng (9)

Another one of their signature range is their curry. So we ordered on their Curry Fish (sting Ray) @ RM 23, As I like how my Asam fish is sourness is stronger and after taste of it is a bit spicy at the end. Curry gravy is not too thick and to mix with your rice to eat along is just perfect~ – Recommended

One of my friend always dine here and he never miss this dish which is 3 steam egg. Different types of egg which is (century, duck and normal egg) to steam on it. A dish which is very simple, fragrant as just add on some garlic oil on top then add on some soy sauce, you will enjoy this simple dish alot~ @ RM 6

At Tek Sen, which is a restaurant that many of my friends love to dine and no doubt too that they have gain international popularity from a few types of magazine came by to feature them. A place to hunt if you are looking for nice homecook meal without disappointing.

On the set back about this place is there are very limited parking space available around the area and no matter during lunch or dinner its always super pack! It is advise to go early to enjoy full range of their food list as the later you went, there will be some dish sold out.

another recommended restaurant in Penang.

Tiger WooHoo

Genre: Drama/ Comedy
This movie had been a hit in local movie industry. After a few movie premier and I have heard and read alot of good review about this movie not until recently I manage to watch it. 2 weeks after the movie was release, its still enjoying full house or 80% tickets sold. As far as I could say, after watching this movie, I am proud of our local Chinese movie at last got its very own quality and story plot. Although its kinda predictable in the movie yet its just a great movie. I love the cinematography way how they shoot it, from that lens had portray out alot of great shots and scenes that can makes you feel all the moments or maybe its because local movie and what they say is we have walk through it before.
This movie is talks on our local culture, social values and family where Ah Beng got fired, and the neighbour keep showing off how great there were and then they found a local employment up in Kelantan for a Tiger Dance. This where the whole story begins. A few moments of tears yet adding in laughter is a great medicine to make people laugh back.
Laughter comes with the mixing of local dialects, of Hokkien, Cantonese, Mandarin and Hakka (if I am not mistaken) and all the cast are from Astro My.FM Deejays. Thumbs up from me for a local production. Looking forward for more. A Recommended show from me.

Overall ratings 8.5/10, Great local production, Recommended~
