... roasted pork only, as usual.

Similar to my previous visit. It tasted pretty much the same. Somehow, the skin tasted a bit weird today. Like overnight frying oil.

Brought ALGJ to try out the best roasted pork in town. I wasn’t too sure if the place was open or not because it was Sunday. Our chance was 50-50. Based on my last visit, the place should be closed on today. Anyway, we went to give it a shot after our stroll in Berjaya Times Square.

Similar to my previous visits, the taste was pretty much the same. Which was a good thing cause I was here to have some good roasted pork. Though we were quite late (it was already 1pm+), but there were still a few pieces of roasted pork hanging up. I guess Sunday is just a quiet day for them. No wonder they opens every fortnight for Sunday.

Please check my previous experience for more details.

My sister said the wanton noodle here was a branch of the famous Hung Kee wanton noodle. She said the noodle here is nice and very springy. It reminds me of a wanton noodle stall in Taman Sea very very long ago, which has similar semi transparent looks on it. It was springy and crunchy too. Better than most wanton noodle I had. But that’s for the noodle’s texture. The sauce used was weird. I guess it has sesame oil in it, which doesn’t really go well with the black sauce. The BBQ pork was not nice and the roasted pork has soggy skin which no longer crispy. The soup was very pepperish, a tad spicy too. But I guess it’s nice since it’s salty enough. I was expecting the wanton to be made with prawn meat, but I was wrong. I guess the noodle would’ve been better if pork lard was used.

This was probably the best roasted pork I’ve had in Klang Valley. It beats my favourite roasted pork at Mooi Mooi. The lean meat was so tender and it seriously melts in the mouth. Despite the crispy skin, it melts as it touches my saliva. The taste and fragrance of the lard filled my mouth immediately, just like a nuclear explosion. Each slice of the roasted pork cost RM13.50. We had 3 slices and the meal cost RM51.10. Even the 10c was being charge by the lady instead of waiving it off for convenience sake. What the…

If Indonesia was having a Richter 7.9 of quake, this could easily shakes my world with a Richter scale of 9.7!

A must try!

On a side note, I’ve read a blog comparing this to the roasted pork in Mooi Mooi, saying that the service here was very lousy and bad. I went there quite early and the roasted pork was still being prepared. The boss was so kind enough to actually waited for me to snap a photo of the 3 pieces of delicious roasted pork before he continues his work. The service was ok, probably because there weren’t many people the time I was there. It was Sunday morning after all. Perhaps I’ll try to go again on weekdays to feel the wrath of bad service as mentioned by the blogger.

This post will be dedicated for a fan-sy of mine, AT. She has been complaining that I haven’t had any new posts for so long. So, I purposely wake up early in the morning, with lacked of sleep, just to come all the way to Dang Wangi for some breakfast that I’ve never written before. Though I’ve been to this place once, so long ago. More than 3 years ago though. But I don’t have much recollection of what I’ve had back then.

I’ve mixed feelings on the food served here. Firstly, the chicken chop was rather unattractive. Probably because it was already soggy from soaking in the brown sauce or maybe because it took them less than 5 minutes to serve it right after we’ve placed our order. Either way, the chicken chop wasn’t as nice as I thought it would be. Then the Hainanese noodle, which came as a surprise. From the looks of it, it was rather unappetizing. Fortunately, it wasn’t the case for its taste. I find it rather good. Though I can’t be sure if I could finish up the whole plate all by myself. My appetite conscience probably gonna kills me.

The roti babi was very nice, aside from the rather oily bread. It seemed to be prepared in a hurry. Reminded me a little of the treasure chest of Taiwanese street snack. It has minced pork and even some sliced sausages. Tasted a tad sweet. It was nice, better if the bread wasn’t so oily. Porridge was a blasphemy. It was bland and we couldn’t even finish 1/2 of it.

Finally, special roast pork of the place, which started serving only at 11:30am. The skin was super crispy and it sort of came off, detached from the meat. Unlike my favourite roasted pork, the fats here don’t melt in my mouth, nor the lean meat was tender and soft. A rather bad dish if you don’t take the roasted skin.

Our plans to go Wong Mee Kee’s roasted pork has failed again today. After our trip to Direct Photo, Wong Mee Kee was on the brink of closing shop at around 1pm+. PG then recommended this roasted pork, which he claimed was nice, right opposite of Pudu Plaza. Since it was nearby, I have no complain on it. Better than having yong tau fu again.

Firstly, the roasted pork wasn’t up to my expectation. I guess PG must’ve been at the home town for too long, it corrupted both his mind and tastes. Time to send him to Mooi Mooi to refresh his taste on what’s considered a good roasted pork, or even Medan Selera in PJ Old Town will do too. The roasted pork was a bit run air (soggy) on the skin, reminded me of my home town’s roasted pork style, which I don’t like. The roasted chicken on the other hand was rather nice though. Despite being a roasted chicken, the meat was tender and moist. Felt like steamed chicken. But then again, I don’t really like steamed chicken anyway. The BBQ pork was glazed with abundance of sweet sauce. It was nice but not awesome. Then the roasted duck, which I preferred not to have it. It lacked the herbal taste, just plain roasted duck with not crispy skin. Bean sprouts was torrent with pepper.

Didn’t managed to catch the stall’s name, even PG doesn’t know. It doesn’t really matter as I won’t go there again anyway.

Had a very late lunch today because I was waiting for AC’s call. When he finally calls, it was almost 3pm. Anyway, went to meet him up and have lunch nearby the place. He recommended stuff from the morning market, which apparently most of the stalls were closed. Of course they were, it’s already half way through noon. So we ended up in Medan Selera instead.

Cendol was nice. Aside from it being served on a cup, there were nothing much to complain about. Though I was hoping gula melaka was being used but the brown sugar used wasn’t all bad. The red beans has the roasted fragrance to it. Though it’s a bit too sweet, only a bit. Much much more better than road side’s Indian’s cendol. I’d come back here for a quick fix of cendol whenever I feel like it.

Fruits rojak was acceptable. At least it was better than Jalan Ipoh YTF’s rojak. There were plenty of water spinach in it. The only complain I had was, instead of giving large pieces of crackers, it was served in shattered pieces of crackers, which doesn’t have much tasting to it.

Popia was quite nice, though it lacked the taste of red sweet sauce. It was moist and juicy, with the same crackers used in rojak found in it. Despite it was soft, the fillings don’t fall apart as I pick it up with my chopsticks. I guess the auntie who made this has years of experience in making good popia. I’ve got nothing much to talk about on the fried tofu though. Probably not overly sweetened by the sweet sauce in it, like most fried tofu do.

After having so many sweet stuff, cendol, rojak, popia and the filling in fried tofu were sweet too. I was stuck with either ordering a mee jawa or chicken rice. Mee jawa was more suitable for my strict diet because of the lacked of meat, but I ended up with chicken rice anyway because I wouldn’t want another sweet food.
