Another roasted meat restaurant that worth paying attention to! If Sun Ming is the best Chicken Rice shop in Cheras area then Hong Seng should be the best one in PJ (Petaling Jaya).
这是另一家值得被关注的烧肉店! 如果说”Sun Ming” 是蕉赖区最好吃的鸡饭店，那么“Hong Seng” 就应该是PJ （Petaling Jaya）区的霸主。
Unlike the Sun Ming, customers that visit this restaurant will have to queue up front their stall be it for dining in or for taking away. The queue here is often drag until the next shop lot.
There is no duck meat served here. What they have here are only Roasted Chicken, BBQ Pork Belly (Char Siew) and Roasted Pork (Siu Yok).
Personally for me, the Roasted Chicken is the best selling point here. The Roasted Chicken here is well known with its crispy roasted skin. Even though the skin is roasted almost to the perfection, the flesh underneath the roasted skin retains juicy and succulent. If I were to compare this Roasted Chicken with the one in Sun Ming, I would think the chicken here taste slightly better than Sun Ming’s one because Hong Seng’s chicken has a crispier skin than Sun Ming’s one!

Next, the Char Siew. I visited here for a few times and noticed that Hong Seng’s Char Siew meat is tender; the fat proportion of the meat is just nice. As compared to some other stalls outside, which there are some that serve 90% fats and only the remaining 10% of lean meat. Their Char Siew’s sauce is the most requested sauce in Hong Seng rather than their chili sauce.
接下来就是他们家的叉烧。我曾经拜访过这家店几次， 然后我发现“Hong Seng”的叉烧肉很柔嫩；它油脂的部分刚刚好。 和外面的几家店做出比较，你会发现外面的叉烧油脂占了90% 而肉的部分就只有那仅有的10%。他们家的叉烧酱比辣椒酱还要受欢迎。
Siu Yok here is another best selling point in my opinion. The Siu Yok’s skin crispiness is comparable to a pork lard or a cracker’s crispiness. The texture is not rock hard nor too soft. The crispiness is just nice. Besides the crispiness of the Siu Yok’s skin, the most important factor of a Siu Yok is the saltiness. Some stalls that sell Siu Yok will make the it too salty which will ruin the taste of it. Hong Seng’s Siu Yok is just nice in regards of the saltiness.
Lastly, I also managed to tried their Chai Buey / Chai Boey / Hot Sour Soup or Assam Vegetable. It is a dish where the mustard green is boiled in a pot together with the leftover of meats. To me, the Hot Sour Soup here is too spicy and lack of the meat flavor (probably due to the absence of duck) as compare to the one in Sun Ming. I still prefer Sun Ming’s Hot Sour Soup.
最后，我也尝试了他们家的菜脯/酸菜汤。这是一道由芥菜和剩肉一起熬煮而成的料理。对我来说，这里的酸菜汤有点太辣而且和”Sun Ming“ 的相比缺少了些些的肉味。我还是会推荐”Sun Ming“的酸菜汤。
Tips from 食 La Vie, be patient in queuing, finding seats and parking as the Malay proverbs says; Di mana ada gula, di situ ada semut. Please do not visit the shop after 1PM. We tried once visiting the shop at 1.05PM and most of their meats are finished.
食 La Vie 温馨小提示，要有耐心在排队，找位置和泊车。就像马来同胞的谚语而言：哪里有糖，在那里就会有蚂蚁。不要再下午一时后去那家店，因为我们曾经在下午一时零五分拜访此店，发现大多数的肉已经卖完了。
