This cha siu place at Chulia street penang is known to be popular, but i find it like a typical cha siu dish in KL. I find it over rated. It feels like a typical restraunt in KL coffee shop.

Accidentally dined here and found it was yummy! We ordered white rice with vegetable, roasted duck, charsew and steamed chicken, which were juicy, tender and well seasoned. Price was not the cheapest in town but quality was definitely amongst the best!
