My family used to go to Tak Chee at least once a month when I was a kid. My favourite dish was char siu pork, a marinated barbecued bright red dish. I especially loved the crispy charred bits at the ends. Back then the restaurant was on the corner of Roe and William streets, where the state theatre now resides. At the end of the meal, the owner would come out from the kitchen and sit with Dad to talk about about business, family and Malaysia.
The 'new' Tak Chee Restaurant is just down from their original home on the William St side. They have become well known for their Hainanese Chicken rice but sadly my favourite char siu pork has disappeared from theread more
This is quite disappointing place to go. There are many good report on their hainan chicken rice. However when I tried it, they are not as impressive as I expected. However they do have some authentic dishes such as sambal vegetable, salted fish bean sprout that are quite ok. The place is quite small and i go there only if there is no alternative.
