The sheer joy that the simple meaty dish brings is what inspired us to come up with this guide. Get ready to meet KL's best roast meats!

A firm favourite for roasts in our books is Toast & Roast, the homely locale tucked away in a quieter part of SS2. The cuts of Premium Char Siew (from RM11) here are distinct — a sweet-sticky exterior leads you to its heavenly hybrid of juicy fat and delicious meat. A choice carb-pairing is the Hakka Noodles T&R (RM6.50). There is a more economical option for the noodles topped with single-portion char siew (RM7.50), but we assure you that there can never be too much char siew, so splurge away. Weekends are when families in the residential neighbourhood pop in for breakfast, so come instead for weekday lunch when it's just you and your char siew. Fine, maybe a close friend or colleague can come too.

The siew yuk at Wong Mei Kee is made of dreams. That, and bossman Datuk Robert's years of experience. Bring friends, family or even colleagues (anyone will enjoy it) — just make sure they're a patient bunch because the legendary dish warrants a long wait. The thick strips of Siew Yuk (from RM17) here glisten with three luscious layers: a golden-brown crackling skin, melt-in-your-mouth fat and tender lean meat. Arrive early and secure a seat in anticipation of this crowd-favourite, which only hits the chopping board at 12.30pm. To make your visit all the more worthwhile, order the low-key but also delicious Roast Chicken (from RM25).

Roast duck is often a daytime affair, and save for food trucks, not many establishments serve the dish in the evening. Enter Loong Foong — despite being a seafood restaurant, they've made a name for themselves with well-executed roast duck at dinnertime. Our advice is to duck the rest of the menu and go straight for the winning dish! From RM7 a portion, the duck arrives with a shiny gloss and while its meat is tender and palatable, the skin steals the show with its resemblance to Peking duck's crisp, airy skin. The restaurant serves only white rice, but fret not. Your order of roast duck gains you a side of dark, rich duck sauce that is made for spooning over your rice.

Sharing plates are the way to go at Classic Rebel, and roasts play a quintessential part in the menu. Bring a party of hungry friends for this one. The Chicken (RM45) is a strong contender, balancing sweet and savoury flavours with its orange chipotle marinade, along with the punch of a smoky finish. When glazing over the menu, don't let the prices stop you from ordering the Lamb Shoulder (RM85) — remember, you are sharing this. We say this because the divine dish is a must-order, boasting meat that will fall right off upon the slightest touch of your knife. With this in mind, visit the hidden gem of a restaurant for a quiet but hearty dinner
surrounded by leafy decor and modern cushioned-chairs.

El Cerdo believes in 'nose to tail' eating when it comes to pork and what better way to perfect that craft than to eat a whole piglet? Celebrate special occasions at this Spanish restaurant with their Roasted Suckling Pig (RM188 for half). The butterflied piglet is carefully roasted, similar to Chinese-style suckling pig, until the skin turns incredibly and deliciously crisp and the meat beneath becomes moist. But the scrumptious suckling pig is not all you're paying for — your dish also comes with a unique experience of Spanish traditions. Upon order, the waiters hand you a plate with instructions to knock it three times against the wooden board. Here's where it gets fun — after using the plate to cut the pig into three parts, you get to hurl it to the floor! The ritual is said to cast out bad luck for diners — a perfect fit for birthdays.

Having been around since 1928, time-honoured Yut Kee is extraordinarily famed for Hainanese delights, like its breakfast toast and eggs. But the next time you hit up this heritage restaurant, make it a weekend afternoon with your family to snag a plate of their weekends-only Roast Pork (from RM16). Served Swiss roll-style, the pork belly is loved for its soft, lean meat coupled with a scrumptious pistachio-peach stuffing and homemade apple sauce. There is also an option to make this a full meal with potatoes and blanched vegetables on the side (additional RM3.50). Better still, bring a whole roast pork home for celebrations — the 2kg slab costs RM170 and will require ordering at least three days in advance.

Opened by three friends who share a love for pork, Crack Pork's menu is an arsenal of roast pork laced with international inspiration. First up is the classic Siew Yuk (from RM10) — succulent Chinese-style pork belly that gets a modern twist with pear sauce or mustard. If you prefer your roasts Western-style, go for the Porchetta (from RM13) to sate your cravings. The tenderloin has the fragrance of rosemary, the crackling skin of siew yuk and a toothsome bite. Other more filling mains include the Siew Yuk Mantou (RM12) that's both soft and crunchy, and Siew Yuk Sandwich (RM13), which reminds us of a yummy siew yuk-stuffed banh mi. No matter which you go for, the hole-in-the-wall restauraunt delivers the goodness of fresh, fleshy roast pork. Spend solo lunches here!

If you find it difficult to resist the delicious duo of pork and beer, Swiss-German restaurant Euro Deli will be your sanctuary. These meat experts are prepared to serve you meat specialties — think Roast Pork Salad (RM27.90), Bacon Pie (RM15.90) and Mixed Spanish Ham (RM58.90). For a hearty dinner, order the Mixed Roast Of Knuckle, Belly & Ribs (RM39.90). As its name suggests, the combo is a mouthful and, as Tastemaker Calvin Lam puts it, "satisfies in more ways than one". The gallant knuckle provides crunch whereas the belly and ribs play supporting roles with tender meat. More importantly, it goes very well with the range of German beers (from RM19.90) available. Coupling manly vibes with a warm, cosy ambience, here's a nook to treat your boyfriend to a fun, dashing dinner date!
