When we read about Toast and Roast from Boo’s site, we were pretty excited. Cumi and I took a drive down to the place to have a look at it. Since it was a Weekday night, it was pretty much closed. As stated on her blog, Toast and Roast is only open from early in the morning, 8.30 am til around 4pm.
Too bad it was closed.
We came back the next day for lunch – die hard! We met the owners who are a lovely energetic pair. The husband and wife team, Angie and Sean are really charming. Angie is Thai and used to be in the hotel line. Sean is the Cook of Toast and Roast.
Well, you can see from the photo that we ordered the large plate of Charsiew (BBQ Pork) and the texture was soft and succulent in the centre, sweet and caramalized on the outside. The flesh was lacking in aroma somewhat but overall, this charsiew was definitely above average.
This large bowl of Hakka noodle was massive! It came with loads of ingredients too and was satisfying. Cumi likes his Hakka noodles rougher with more bite, but it was good for me.
There’s a ‘turbo rice’ as well – combination of charsiew, siew yoke (roast pork) and chicken priced at RM7.00 and all sorts of other permutations of these few meat items. Grand!
The soup dumpling was delicious! We loved this because it was huge with tons of meat and vegetable stuffing in it. They also serve an excellent leongchar (herbal tea) here made with Lemongrass. Don’t forget to try this. Angie also told us they get asked a lot – “where is your toast”? “Do you do tea?” . Well, she says laughingly that no, they don’t do toasted bread and tea yet , but they soon will in the near future. For now, Toast and Roast just means, Toast – they toast the Charsiew, and Roast – they roast the chicken. Cute!
Thanks Boo for the tip. We will definitely be back.Add: Toast & Roast
