Ironic isn't it, coming to Meng Meng whose specialty is the roasted duck and yet we did not order it. As always the case, we instead opt to order the roast chicken, roast pork and char siew. I had tried their specialty roast duck before but was not impressed by it. Their roasted ducks are served with herbal gravy, which in my opinion is too bland. The fragrance and taste of the herbs are just not strong enough to stimulate one's senses. The roasted chicken is good, and so are the roasted pork. You can have a choice of choosing lean char siew or those with thick layer of fatty juices in between the meat. I like mine with fatty juices in the char siew, definitely enhances the texture of the otherwise tough meat. They do whip up a couple of side dishes for you to choose from too, where you can choose from the likes of fried vegetables, minced meat beancurd, etc2.

I still like my braised duck or "pi-pa" duck. The thought of the "pi-pa" duck made me drooling, and had me reminiscing of how my family would in the past just drove up to Kim Long Restaurant @ Senai. Looking forward to go again one of these days and will then post up the pictures.

Price: 7./10
Service: 7.5/10
Conclusion: A place to go to if you are having a dilemma of whether to have roast duck, chicken, pork or char siew for your meal. Just head over to Meng Meng since they provide all of the above. No more headaches or dilemma :) A plus point is they still serve a (not much but adequate) selection of side dishes.
