Have some of you enjoy your little long weekend over Wesak Day? I did, I had a great party and great dining while I am at Penang. I had lunch with my friend to a place which I have not been since I was a kid. Yap, this shop is quite old already as when I was a kid my grandpa used to bring me here for his favourite plate of chicken rice.

Kedai Makanan & Minuman Hock Seong Choon that located at Penang Road house this famous chicken rice that is quite extra ordinary. A place used to be so famous 20 years ago and till date still standing tall on its business with their very own regular. Offering traditional Chicken Rice in another way, that Dark/Black soy sauce is one of the  main ingredient for the chicken.

 The shop is more well know for their dark chicken instead of the white ones.

Dining in here can be another experience as this is one of a few rare coffee shop that still maintain its classic dining area with wooden cubical at the side and wooden table and plastic chairs in the  middle area, along with cheque titles that remains the heritage look of it.

A normal plate of Hainanese Chicken Rice for single person comes in a side plate of chicken, a bowl of soup and I did order extra herbal egg to go on. @ RM 4-RM 10

Oily rice are used here as they cook the rice with some chicken soup to make it more fragrant. Little ginger is detected.

AS for the special homemade dark soy sauce are added ontop of the roast chicken, to make it more fragrant, not too dry and easy to eat. The taste is little sweet salty and I would prefer my side of chicken is drumstick. Love the chicken texture at that part and my friend whom usually do not eat chicken breast and he would only eat here as the sauce did tone down the hardness and make it nice to chew.

Although the famous one are the roast chicken, I like the white chicken more as the texture of the meat is smooth and cook to perfection along with the sauce added on makes it taste much better.

Herbal egg is a little disappointed as with the term Herbal Egg, there is not much taste of herbal is detected. This herbal egg is ordered separately from the coffee shop owner.

To make the chicken taste more interesting, try to pair with their very own homemade green chili sauce dressing, light spicy with sourish end and you will enjoy all 4 taste in one plate.

This place do bring back alot memories for me and if you are looking for something little different from the rest of Hainanese Chicken Rice, then its good to try it this version here.

Deluxe Salmon & Seaweed Yee Sang with Mixed Fruits

PJ Hilton (3)

Lou Sang in Chinese Tradition is a must which signify toss of luck, health and prosperity. Not only that, that salmon fish is use to symbolize life and longevity.

PJ Hilton (4)

The sauce are slightly sour end with sweet taste of mango, pineapple and dragon fruit. Something which is easy to start off with as most of the restaurant have different sauces for Yee Sang.

PJ Hilton (5)

When the waiter open up the cover of the pot of Braised Baby Abalone with Dried Seafood Soup, I was like wahhhh, so rich in ingredient yet its double boil. Something to look for and the light smell of it entrails my nose that I just cant wait to get a sip of it.

PJ Hilton (7)

Look at the ingredient that they have, with huge abalone dried scallops,  fish maw, herbs and black chicken.

PJ Hilton (6)

A soup that truly come to my liking that is clear yet aromatic.

PJ Hilton (8)

Braised Sea Cucumber with Mixed Mushrooms and Sun-dried Scallops. A bowl of rice is needed for this. Top with gravy on top of it and just pairs well with broccoli was boil well not too soft and sea cucumber is soft enough.

PJ Hilton (9)

Half Half… Roast Chicken, Smoked Duck with Dragonfruit Sauce and Vegetable Crackers. Smoked duck is aromatic and very well prepare that the dragonfruit dressing just add a simple and light taste of it yet smock duck taste still there. Its a dish that shall not miss and roast chicken I just love the skin.

PJ Hilton (10)

when I look at the menu, this dish definitely caught my attention, especially anything in cod, I would put extra attention cuz I just love cod. Deep Fried Canadian Cod with Honey Sauce comes with huge cube of fresh cod and fried well on the outer layer with cod meat is warm inside, that pairs well with the sauce. I didnt enjoy it slowly, I put in the whole cube into my mouth and let it burst with flavour.

PJ Hilton (11)

Sauteed Fresh Sea Prawns with Wasabi Mayo and “Sakura Denbu” is nearly juicy and I just wish I have extra wasabi mayo to dip on, then it would have been another perfect dish.

PJ Hilton (12)

By the time reach this dish we were already surrendering, it looks little but its actually very filling. Then Steamed Glutinous Rice with Sun-fried Oysters, Salted Egg Yolk and Chicken Paste was well prepare and the colour of it already attracted us. At first the girls next to me was planing come lets take one and share 3 portion ended up the take 1 each. Its good, filled with flavour of the leave and salted egg that makes the extra kick of it. Glutinous rice was well cook and steam that just makes it a perfect ending.

Many of the modern Chinese family do not really cook at home any more for reunion dinner and surely this is one of the restaurant to consider.

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)

char siew (4)

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.

char siew (6)

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.

char siew (8)

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.

It had been so long that since I last step into this shop as it was not until recently I pay a visit again. No doubt that they do have their signature roast chicken which is a must try item when you are in the shop. Kenny Rogers

As for this round, I head onto their latest promotion that caught my attention with Chicken and Pasta Meal promotion. Looks huge in size that makes me think, will I be able to finish this dish?

Usually with limited edition menu, there must have limited edition drinks also. I grab myself with Minty Green Tea Mocktail (RM7.50) as I always love green tea. Taste is quite refreshing and with strong hint of mint flavour that might have overpower the taste of green tea. Love the gassy taste of it.

Then when my friend ordered Minty Passion Mocktail (RM7.50) I find that this had taste better compare to the other one.

During big occasions of celebrations, most of us definitely would celebrate outside, it depends on restaurant, bar, playground, seaside or anywhere but for this one occasion we decided to rock this Movida  place by arranging a dinner and surprise birthday party for one of our friend.
