Located: Same road as New Paris Restaurant, 5 Stones and Amaya condominiums but at the far end, nearer towards Ken Damansara (Thanks, Masak-masak!)
Review: Masak-masak's wonderful food blog

Yes, you can find this legendary char-siew place on GPS, free from Malsingmaps I think. Just type in "Toast Roast" .. Yum. Check out description on the GPS, "BBQ Pork is good". It sure is!

We went early, I think it was about 11:30am when we got there, so we beat the lunch crowd which occupied the entire restaurant by the time we finished our meal 45 minutes later!

bbG likes the char-siew at Meng Kee (Jalan Alor), whilst I am a huge fan of the one prepared at Spring Golden (Shah Alam) and Overseas Imbi, whilst others are huge fans of Meng Kee in Glenmarie or Soo Kee in Ampang ... but Toast & Roast can give any of these outlets a "fight"! Sticky, beautifully roasted and full of flavour ... Good stuff :-)

I initially thought that the crunchies above my Hakka Mee was fried lard, but according to Masak-masak its actually fish bits, great to add some texture to the noodles, which in "kosong" form goes perfectly with the Char Siew :-)

We ordered some dumplings / wantan too ...
