Penang BBQ Pork Noodles @ Sing Long

sl bbq stall

I have been told that there’s a really good BBQ pork noodle stall at a coffee shop called Sing Long (Tian Long in Chinese) and the three of us headed down for breakfast to check it out. The stall has an impressive repertoire of BBQ pork products displayed at the see-through stall casement.

The chef hails from Penang and serves authentic Penang BBQ pork noodles. The noodles are hand made and not the regular ones we get over here, but the ones from Penang/KL. The texture and diameter of the noodle is much thicker – it’s akin to Hokkien noodles.

sl breakfast

The stall doesn’t just serve BBQ pork noodles but also BBQ rice. However, their forte is definitely the pork noodles. It’s their signature dish and it would be heresy to order BBQ rice instead of noodles, which one of my coworkers did. A lot of people throng the coffee shop before office hours to eat breakfast so you have to go quite early to avoid the crowds.

This is their famous Penang BBQ pork noodles (RM 4.50). I have seldom sung praises about coffee shop stalls, but I am yodeling now. It just has to be experienced – the sinful crunch of the crispy pork, the tender juiciness of the meat and the sprinkling of spring onions on top creates a dish that is greater than the sum of it’s parts.

Best place for BBQ pork noodles in Sibu. Hands down.

  1. That dish look so good roast pork skin is the best part being so crispy. We have that in Hawaii too. No food stall with tables just stall that sell the roast porks and other things. Hawaii is changing there are some people from Singapore open up some food stalls now.

  2. Being to Beijing and could’nt find anywhere that sell roast porks or roast ducks. Miss Hong Kong for the Cantonese food. I only see Beijing and other Northern Chinese food. It OK but not the same.

  3. This something a Cantonese person can really enjoy. Simple comfort foods. It reminded me as a child helping my mother shopping and she like to pick up some roast pork in San Francisco Chinatown. A pound of that and this boy was it so good.

  4. HB, your foods blog entries always make me want go out and get some. Living in San Francisco no problem with this kind of food. We don’t have it with no noodle but take it home with and serve with rice and vegetables is not bad at all. You should try a Pentax K100D it able to get background shot more clear. Sony Cyber-Shot DSC H5 is good but costly. I saw the roast ducks in your background photo got some too for dinner.

  5. Where is it? Round the corner from the ori Sushi Tie, near Enjoy? If that’s the one, it’s been around a long time but always crowded. Went once only. Got nice yong tofu, dunno still got or not.

  6. The pork sure looks good but the noodles are too thick though. There’s a really good “siu yoke” shop near Plaza Pudu as mentioned by Tan Yee Hou and the siu yoke melts in your mouth not in your hands! LOL

  7. I could’nt realize so many people never try food sold in food stalls. I do not have a chance living in Ohio. The closest is food courts in malls but no good Asian foods. This roast pork I able to find when in San Francisco for visit and even good Chinese pastries and dim sums. It my job there but later thinking to moving to San Francisco.

  8. Shelly: Yeah, I agree, the crispy roast pork skin is the best part of the pork. :)
    Jeff: Seriously?!?!? There’s no places selling roast pork or ducks in BEIJING? I would have thought China would be overflowing with stuff like this.
    Michale: Yeah, comfort food. Mine is stewed pork leg with rice. I don’t know why I enjoy it so much, but that’s my ultimate comfort food.
    Darren: Interesting, eh? I wonder why this trend is going on…perhaps of hefty competition over there.
    Tan Yee Hou: I’m going to KL soon. I shall call you when I’m there. :)
    Erica: Thanks Erica! :)
    Yeah, it’s usually served with rice, but the noodles are good at this stall. They serve a really mean stewed pork leg too, amazingly good. I shall review it soon.
    suituapui: Yeah, that’s the place. It’s opposite Enjoy Cafe. The stall serves really, really good pork leg too, the stewed kind.
    Mmm…pork leg rice. :)
    xin: Yeah, that’s the best part about the pork! :)
    ohyeahmoreyeah: Jesus Christ bananas! You have an excellant eye for detail!
    It’s not what you think though, the lighter’s outer casing is missing coz I dropped it and it fell off. Seriously. Nothing naughty going on here. :)
    cynthia: It’s a bit like udon noodles in terms of thickness, but different. I would compare it more to the rice noodles used in making assam laksa. :)
    eiling: It’s not too thick, it tastes great with the dish! :)
    Plaza Pudu eh, bring me over when I go to KL.
    KY: Yeah, the heroin from Penang also best! ;)
    owllow: Macro shot, for your viewing pleasure. :)
    Jimmy: Hmm…the food stalls in shopping mall food courts somehow lacks the ambiance and taste of The Real Deal (TM) in coffee shops. I think it’s more for the tourists than anything, air conditioned comfort dining while shopping and all that.
    yienyien: Let’s go then, they have good stewed pork leg rice too. :)
