Chicken and Char Siew Rice at Chang Man 常满 Dim Sum in Taman Nusa Bestari, Johor Bahru

When I was at Chang Man to try out their Hong Kong dim sum, besides being impressed with their dim sum, I also enjoyed their chicken and char siew rice. Today, I went back to Chang Man 常满 again, specially for their chicken and char siew rice.

Chang Man included chicken and char siew in their menu to appeal to a wider customer base. Furthermore, Kok Weng, one of the partners is skillful in roast meats as he had worked in one of Kuala Lumpur's top roast meat restaurants for nearly 20 years.

As chicken and char siew rice is not the main business of Chang Man, the amount made each day is quite small - only five chickens and half a dozen strips of char siew.

Chang Man's staff goes to the wet market to buy the fresh chicken everyday.

We had this plate of mixed chicken and char siew. This set for two persons came with two bowls of rice and soup, and costed RM13.

The poached chicken was made with ordinary farm raised chicken. The thick flesh was tender, sweet and savoury.

Some parts were slightly rare as in the Cantonese style of poached chicken. I like this style and make it the same way at home - slightly rare, retaining more of the chicken's natural juices. I learnt how to make this style of poached chicken from my Hong Kong school mates when I was studying in Canada in the 1980s.

The char siew I had today had quite a bit of fat attached... but I didn't worry too much about it :P

The char siew was irresistibly tender, sweet and savoury.

The tender rice was fluffy and very lightly coated with fragrant oil. I didn't take a picture of the tasty soup.

Chili-Sauce-Johor-Bahru

The chili sauce was average - a blend of chili, garlic and ginger.

Chicken-Hor-Fun-Johor-Bahru

We also shared this RM6 chicken hor fun soup. The same succulent chicken was served in a savoury seafood broth with pleasant umami flavour. The hor fun rice noodles were average.

Give Chang Man's chicken and char siew a try if you are around the Nusa Bestari and Bukit Indah area.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
