There are regular customer of Choon Yien, this place never fails to serve us with some above average cha siew (sweet bbq pork), siew yoke (roasted pork) and crispy skin chicken. A perfect prelude to the hearty meal would be the complementary soup of the day. It varies from day to day where sometimes we get lotus root soup, chicken feet with peanut soup or the Chinese watercress soup, being our favourite. A special mention to the chicken stock base rice, fluffy, fragrant with some garlic and ginger residue. Choon Yien's char siew is simmered with some soy based gravy and sprinkled with the perfect amount of garlic crust. "Poon Fei Sao" (half fat and half lean) is our default order because too much fat is gross while the leanest pieces are not always tender. Boon Fei Sao is wonderfully tender and so, so succulent. The siew yoke that looks promisingly good. Distinctive layer of crispy skin, fats and meats are felt in our mouth. The crispy skin chicken is not your average roasted chicken that we found at anywhere else. It does require some skill to keep the chicken moist and the skin crispy because the chicken has to be air dried for hours so the skin becomes crispy when it is being deep fried.
Pricing is quite reasonable, it ranges from RM 5 (plain cha siew rice) to RM 10 per person (cha siew+siew yoke+chicken with rice).
