Awesome pork chap fan @ SS 6

chinese stall ss6

Allow me to wax lyrical about my favorite pork lunch. Restaurant New Yew Sang Seafood is a dai chow place that magically transforms itself into a chap fun (mixed rice) place in the day. It has a rather unassuming façade, but dishes up hearty meals for the office workers around these parts.

The crowd here during lunch is formidable – the tables and chairs snakes lazily out the front of the restaurant and runs along the side and all the way down, illegally infringing on the sidewalk of the other business establishments as a testament to their popularity.

The place isn’t really optimal for eating though – the corrugated tin roof causes major heat retention in the afternoon sun and the place is always so packed it’s hard to even find a seat. There are two mixed rice places here – one is Malay and the other Chinese. Needless to say the Malay one doesn’t serve pork.

I usually come here if I want to take away. The pork has been calling me the entire week – this is the fourth consecutive day I’ve eaten here. I would eat here at night too, except they don’t open at night.

chinese owner

The owner with ready packed rice in Styrofoam boxes for easier distribution.

What’s so special about the chap fan over here? It’s just chap fan right? Yeah, when it boils (haha) down to that, I can’t exactly put my finger on why I like this place. It has an impressive repertoire of dishes with enough variety that you can go for a fortnight without having to eat the same dish twice. That’s not the reason though – I always get the same stuff every day. If I was forced to cough up a reason, I’ll say it’s the pork.

The left flank of food.

I’m particularly fond of the stewed pork over here. It’s unashamedly swine: loud, brash and full of fat. It’s like there’s a neon sign saying PIG over it.This is not a place which believes in taking off the skin and fat before serving pork – the huge chunks of lard and chewy skin is not discarded, but celebrated. Totally unapologetic. I like.

chinese front

Center.

I always take one huge steamed chicken drumstick in soy sauce - it tastes like the “Asian marinated chicken” I used to get in Countdown (a chain of grocery stores in NZ) to microwave before eating. I think you’re supposed to take one piece (each drumstick is conveniently chopped into three bite sized pieces) so perhaps this is why my rice tends to rack up a bill on the high side.

chinese right

The right flank – the pork is here.

I also like the tomato cooked with eggs and starch, producing that distinctive look. I’ve never been a big fan of this when I was a kid, but it was the best (as in palatable) dish that the cook in rehab could come out with. You can’t exactly go wrong with a couple of tomatoes, an egg and starch.

chinese tapau

It usually costs RM 7 for my pork extravaganza…and it’s worth every penny (or sen).

  1. You know i find these chap fan place usually has a wide array of dishes – different colour, different texture, different meat. But when you eat for a longer period – say a few years, they tend to taste the same regardless of what you take. :P

  2. Dude, I like the take no prisoners, distinctively sixthseal’s writing style.. You are a natural in making a simple Chap fan review flow like a nice novel, smooth. I usually skip a lot of sentences on food blogs, but not sixthseal’s.

  3. Yummy.. chap fan@economy rice, but it’s not that economy. So many food variety…In sibu, only can be found at Pasar Malam but then also not much choicez… This gonna make me gain weight if i stay near to that area. ;)

  4. Argh~~~ I want Du Kar Peng!! HB, great writing. Bad for me to read with an empty stomach. This is the first time I read a chap fan review and bring me back to the old days in Bangi and Kajang. My choices were always the same too, since I was still a vegetarian that time, I always must have either steam egg, fried soy bean “sheet” or mui choy without the pork. They FOC service us with cow dung smell. Oh yeah~~~

  5. wow, that looks great. ( no disrespcect to my muslim or jewish friends, who keep halal, or kosher) but that is one good looking feast. I can see why you go often. Tom

  6. I like the dishes that u ordered especially the fatty pork with “tauyu”. Delicious…
    You make me want to go there tomoro. Hey, u can join the Digi “Speak Up” contest, can win movie passes, hp, and GSC movie passes, RM3000… :D

  7. HB, I like diner type setting and meals are good deal good portion. I would not take a date to it till we both agree it ok on casual days dating.

  8. SW: Arrgghhh…I’m craving for pork again. I should have eaten before I came into the office. Grr. :)
    DYMM_Tuanku: Anytime mate! :)
    chefmel: Eh, how can it taste the same?
    I mean, I understand if it has a general underlying taste of MSG but meat, fish and vegetables taste different to me. ;)
    e: Thanks Ed! :)
    I wrote this is about 10 minutes, full steam ahead speed writing coz I was busy yesterday, perhaps my speed writing is what people associate with the old sixthseal.com
    Shirley Snow: Yeah, it’s not so “economy” for me too coz I get a lot of stuff. Sibu pasar malam has a good variety? I’ve never eaten the chap fan there. I shall try when I go back. :)
    fish fish: I cannot eat the soggy soya bean sheets. It tastes strange to me. I’ve never liked it and while I’ve gotten to like some food I didn’t as a kid, soya bean sheets is not one of them. ;)
    I love stewed pork leg rice too! I know this awesome one in Chong Lin Park, Kuching where I used to live.
    Tom Robinson: Yeah, I don’t eat pork very often and I was delighted to find this place. :)
    Iriene: Yup, the pork over here it great!
    I joined the contest dy. :)
    Michael (Mike): It’s great for take away lunches too. :)

  9. I have been told I have grossly misunderstood the term DAI CHOW over here.
    Does it mean rice with ordered dishes in the middle?
    Or does it cover Hokkien mee too?

  10. dai chow basically means anything that’s stirfried in the big wok….
    basic dai chow is where you can get kfc (kong foo chow), hokkien mee, fried rice, mun fan, etc…
    at dai chow stalls where you can ‘tim choy’ is where you can order dishes as well….. meat, vegie, soups, etc…..

  11. Sibu pasar malam one not nice.. No choices at all. I dont think you want it… :S They already packed it into styrofoam box and food is so less.. I think better u try “blue splendor” at Wisma Sanyan there.. Got aircond somemore. :) But only available during weekdays lunch hour.

  12. For a while, I thought you made a typo error – that what you meant was you were an awesome fan of pork chOp… LOL!!! Must never jump into conclusion at first sight, eh?

  13. Crap, I have WiFi in the hotel in Melaka. I was fully meaning to update tonight….

    …but I forgot to bring my damn dSLR cable. Grr!
    Anyways, I’m updating with photos on http://twitter.com/sixthseal
    I’ll post when I get home tomorrow. :)

  14. I dont eat pork too often, but one thing I love to eat is a BLT, in the summer time. Some nice toasted bread, lettuce, tomato, Mayonaise, a few strips of crispy fried bacon, a beer, after working outside, Well, pretty nice. ( as omg as i wasnt the one that killed that particuar animal). I live on a small farm.. It definetly cuts down on your enjoyoment of beef, when you raise it from a calf. But still not that much. You just eat vegtables for a few days. Then say, pass me one of those hamburgers, please. Tom

  15. imantulen: Alas! I was wrong indeed. I thought dai chow meant ordering dishes in the middle. Ish, no wonder people look at me weird when I said you eat dai chow in the morning? :)
    foodcrazee: Sure, I’ll love to. :) I know how to cook it with starch but not without.
    KY: Yup! And I’m going to eat it again today. :)
    headsteadi: Yes, today! Heh! I shall eat it during lunch hour. :)
    ShaolinTiger: Aha, another item on my To Eat list…haven’t had char siew pau in ages. :)
    Shirley Snow: I heard about the Blue Splendor chap fan too, but haven’t actually had it yet. :)
    I’ll try when I go back.
    YilingL: Yup, I know. Very unhealthy, just the way I like it. ;)
    eiling: Heh! No worries. :)
    xes: Yup, it’s very filling. Can induce post lunch coma one. ;)
    J2Kfm: Haha! It’s not very “economy” but it is good value for money with the amount of stuff I have in there. :)
    suituapui: I’m a big fan of pork chop too, but I prefer STEWED PORK LEG! :)
    Joyce: Yeah, this place is awesome! I just don’t like eating there coz it’s so hot! :(
    pm: Hmm…7 months?
    Tom Robinson: Yeah, a nice BLT sandwich really hits the spot on a hot day. Must be the lettuce and tomatos. :)
    tej: You deserve it, after gym. :)
    Jacklyn: It’s quite cheap – usually RM 3.50, give or take, if you just choose those items. :)

  16. haha, when i saw the first pic, i was like, ei, this place is familiar, then i looked at the 2nd and 3rd and finally i saw the face of the boss of the chap fan stall. haha…
    this is the place i had my lunch almost every day!!
    I don’t even know the shop’s name, we called it corner shop or ‘ah fu’, i think it’s the boss name lar…
    anyway, the other side is the indian mixed rice lar, not malay.. hehe…

  17. Jys: We call it “the chinese shop” where I work. Haha! I don’t think many people know the name of the shop too. It’s Indian? I always assumed it’s Malay from the offerings.
