11th Miles, Cheras… Now, how often do I venture to this part of the town? Hardly I would say. It so happened that I had some chores to attend, to which brought me here. As I was driving pass this busy little village, I saw an unassuming shack with a drive of people sitting beneath it eating away. Since it was lunch hour, I decided to check out the place. Who knows, I might be lucky to unearth some good stuff? After a few turns, I finally managed to get a parking across the stall. Parking here is rather nasty, so be warned!
I was greeted by a stall hanging with all sorts of salivating meat ranging from roast chicken, roast duck, poached chicken, roast pork and strips of tasty looking char siew. Without further delay I took my seat and ordered away.
Poached Chicken Rice @ RM 4.50 ~ E’s chicken rice came and honestly, I wasn’t too impress by the looks. It screams bland and tasteless. True enough, that was the case. The sauce didn’t help much either except lending some saltish flavor to the pieces of chicken. The only compliment will be the fluffy rice.
Roast Duck Rice @ RM 4.80 ~ I went for the duck breast part and it was pretty ok even though it looked more like braised pork to me. The meat was succulent and full of the ducky aroma. My only gripe is the overly dark skin which wasn’t crispy and lacked of flavor. The accompanying sauce was a tad too sweet for my liking.
Roast Chicken Rice @ RM 4.00 ~ Of three, this looked the most promising. The chicken skins were enticing, giving you that “come and eat me” look. It was yet another let down. It tastes almost like the poached chicken, if not the same except it came with a darker complexion (the roasted skin).
Char Siew @ RM 17.00 ~ This looks good from rack of the stall to which I ordered 2 strips. The frist strip from the left was less caramalised but attribute a good mixture of lean and fats while the other strip was less enjoyable. Burnt parts were bitter and the missing fat parts made it tough. Seriously nothing much to shout about.
Disappointingly, the roast items here faltered to impress in whichever manner imaginable. I must admit I was tricked by the overwhelming crowd to this stall, but it wasn’t all that bad. For the kinda price, I am happy to get some meat to fill the gap in my stomach for lunch. You don’t always hit the jackpot when it comes to food do you?
