Restoran San Cia @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

Restoran San Cia may seem like a very ordinary restaurant but this is a restaurant that is very famous for their roasted meats, mainly their Char Siew and Siew Yuk. The demand for their Siew Yuk is so great so much so it is even sold before it is prepared. 

The Restaurant In Taman Loke Yew, Tanjung Malim

Lot's Of Newspaper Write Ups
This restaurant is located very close to the Tanjung Malim Bus Station and it is right in the middle of town. In order to enjoy all their meat variety, my recommendation would be to be here around 11 am for an early lunch.

Iced Herbal Tea

White Rice
The place is always busy and they are mostly full house during lunch hour. Besides this, there would be lots of takeaways too. We were here slightly after 1.30 pm and even then, their Yellow Rice that is prepared specially for the Chicken Rice is already sold out and we had to settle for some White Rice instead. One of my favourite drinks here is their Herbal Tea. It's really good and my rating for this shall be 9/10. 

Clear Soup

Chili Paste
Don't expect much of a service here as they are all so busy. So, please do order at the counter and the food would be sent over to your table shortly. With their meats, the above clear soup comes complimentary. For me, this is decent and my rating for this shall be 7/10. Their Chili Paste is above average as well. Not as great as Rudy's which I had blogged about sometime last week. Rating wise, I would give this 7/10 as well. Not too spicy and it's slightly on the watery side. 

Roasted Duck, Roasted Chicken & Char Siew

Char Siew, Roasted Chicken & Roasted Duck
As I had expected, they were sold out on their Siew Yuk. They have lots of orders that goes by the Kg's from people in Kuala Lumpur and they only allocate a small portion for their daily retail sales. But I have tasted it before and it's truly heavenly. So today, we could only enjoy their Char Siew, Roasted Chicken and Roasted Duck. Do note that they do not do Steamed Chicken. I would rate their Char Siew at 9/10, their Roasted Duck at 9/10 and their Roasted Chicken at 9/10. 

Pickled Vegetables
They have a handful of vegetables prepared on a daily basis and this afternoon, we decided to go for their Pickled Vegetables. Excellent preparation and it was truly enjoyable. My rating for this shall be 8/10. 

If you're passing Tanjung Malim, I would recommend doing an early lunch at Restoran San Cia which is located in Taman Loke Yew, not too far away from the Bus Station. Their Siew Yuk, Char Siew and Roasted Duck are truly amazing but you have to be there before 11.30 am to enjoy all three meats. Excellent roasted variety at reasonable prices.
