Divine caramelised fatty char siew with a facet of Hakka noodles, however skip the siew yoke

With Malaysia’s new authorities hanging within the stability, I discover myself gravitating in direction of consolation meals for the previous 48 hours in anticipation of the outcomes. And what’s extra comforting than a plate of candy sticky, fatty char siew? The place higher than at Petaling Jaya’s holy grail of roast meats, TNR by Sean and Angie

It’s comparatively straightforward to identify the restaurant. Simply search for the signboard with a large pig with a fork in its mouth! Earlier than I get into the nitty gritty particulars of their menu, you’ll have an interest to know that simply 10 minutes away in SS2/72, there’s one other Toast & Roast serving char siew as properly and it entails a quite prolonged household feud. However that’s not why I’m right here— it’s all in regards to the char siu, in spite of everything. 

TNR - Dishes

The menu at TNR by Sean and Angie is quite in depth. In addition to their well-known char siew, you’ll be able to go for their siew yoke or the Hickory Smoked Rooster. Not within the temper for rice? You possibly can go for their widespread Hakka Noodles or Wonton Mee to go along with your desired selection of meat. 

You may also add on sides comparable to Crispy Fish Roll, Sui Kow Soup or Pork Meatball Soup. A useful tip: When you like your meat lean or fatty, it’s greatest to tell the workers upfront to allow them to select the precise cuts for you.

What I attempted at TNR by Sean and Angie

As an alternative of my ordinary rice fare, I made a decision to change issues up by ordering their Hakka Noodle Premium Char Siew (RM10.50). Unable to withstand temptation, I ordered one other serving of their Premium Char Siew (RM6.50)— in spite of everything, one can by no means have sufficient of their fatty barbecued pork. 

However even with two servings of the char siew, my gluttony determined it was not enough and I proceeded to order a small serving of the Siew Yoke (RM6.50).

In 10 minutes, the barbecued pork, crispy siew yoke and noodles arrived with a facet accompaniment of pickled inexperienced chillies and the customary chilli sauce. At first look, the char siew had a red-orangish hue on the skin and this lovely shiny gleam (which I later found was resulting from caramelised sugar). The very sight of this superbly dressed meat is undoubtedly capable of carry even the strongest of man to his knees. 

In contrast to the char siew served on the famed Char Siew Yoong outlet in Pudu which is extra buttery and fatty by way of texture, the one served right here had a agency, shiny floor on the skin and tender on the within.

The flavours labored properly collectively. The candy candy-like style from the outside, a superb chunk from the meat and to not neglect, the fatty bits. Actually, it took all of me from popping slices of the char siew into my grasping mouth and chewing on the nice and cozy, candy juicy pork. 

TNR by Sean and Angie - noodles

The Hakka Noodles was a reasonably simple dish. It consisted of boiled flat yellow noodles combined with delicate savoury soy sauce and lard oil earlier than being topped off with items of lard and spring onions. Be sure you toss the noodles together with the oil on the backside otherwise you may not get to benefit from the flavours. 

The nice factor about the noodles was that they had been springy and well-flavoured. Nevertheless after a few bites, I may really feel the lard oil coating my lips. Ultimately, I couldn’t end the noodles because it left me feeling extraordinarily greasy. Not an incredible expertise, or aftertaste.

I have to admit subsequent to its glazed buddy, the siew yoke appeared quite lacklustre and tremendous uninviting. Hoping that the style would someway win over its (lack of) look, I eagerly took a chunk. Sadly, after having tasted among the greatest siew yoke in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, the one right here paled compared. Certain, there was a crunch to it, nevertheless it was very faint and the meat was quite dry. 

Remaining ideas

TNR - noodles

I turned my consideration to the leftover char siew and had no points licking that plate clear. As I sipped on my Chinese language tea in hopes to eliminate the greasy aftertaste of the noodles, I puzzled if TNR by Sean and Angie lived as much as its roast meat hype.

For the char siew, undoubtedly. Deliver your complete household or your char siew– loving mates and order the giant plate of Char Siew (RM42.90) or should you dare, the 500gram or perhaps a complete kilo. It’s price each single calorie. 

And I’d counsel you skip on the roast pork. I missed the enjoyment of biting into spectacularly crispy crackling. Certain it had a slight crunch, nevertheless it was actually below seasoned and minimize quite lean.
