Restoran Wong Kee, Pudu

Dato' Siew Yok. That's the nic friends and acquintances been sputtering for eons. Yes, due to the exceptionally high price and mighty attitude. Horror stories kept me away until a kind Foodie took pity on me, waved a Star LRT ticket at me and WALLAH!

OH MY BOAR !

The expected to be crunchy part (skin) was downright crock-crock crunchy. 'chu-yau-char' taste.The expected to be soft part (fats) did melt in my mouth.The expected to be succulent (layered meat) was fragrant and well, succulent. Ahhhh... BUT please DO NOT be greedy. Overdosing not only tends to suffocate the climax on tongue but also hurt your pocket(s).

Definitely high price for RM15 per pax (a serving of lardy roast pork, a plate of steam white rice and glass of iced herbal tea). Pictured below is a plate of lardy sin for 2. Location: Opposite here, Restoran Yap Hup KeeNotes:

i) The siewyok proprietor may be deemed arrogant by certain quarters due to his persistence to start business punctually at 12.30pm (amended). Not a minute earlier. In addition, he'll only entertain additional orders after all patrons in the original queue have been served. Source: kind Foodie

ii) Words plastered on piece of crackling in opening picture is grabbed from Belinda Carlisle's hit, I Get Weak.

Pity outstanding charsiewsiuyok rarely be found at the same place. Ah, remember my masterpiece post? I'm still quite a regular there. 1 strip to eat in, 3 to go. =D

rokh said...

worldwindows said...

Crunchy goodness. Love these anytime of the day.

Selba said...

I'm hungry!!!

Bangsar-bAbE said...

I agree with teckiee, RM15 is expensive for such small portion of siew yuk... o_0

550ml jar of faith said...

Are you sure that small portion feeds two? Looks like teatime snack size to me!!

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Still my favourite but I'd go on a Saturday to avoid the long queues.

Tummythoz said...

thenomadGourmand, hmm it's been touted as THE BEST so do it once, at least. To me, I'll return but not too often.

teckiee, think better to turn left into rows of shop after a petrol station (Caltex?), but before Sek Yuen on the right.

This link to a neighbouring shop I attached does not help?

SC, help!

*shy* at J2Kfm. Yes am, not pm.
So when?

rokh, so was it d same?

Worldwindows, pity not too health-friendly.

Selba, spoken like a true foodie!

Bangsar-babe, a rare indulgent or get someone to pay for it! Hehe.

550ml jar of faith, already mentioned DATO' siew yuk-ma.

Lyrical Lemongrass, we were lucky that weekday. Crowd came in after we were served. *sigh* It was meant to be.

babe_kl said...

nice but the after effect of jelakness will kill man :p so jelak until no need eat dinner hahaha

foodbin said...

will burn a hole in my pocket

backStreetGluttons said...

omg thats expensive. Think better eat wild boar unplugged

Fezzaboy said...

Hey, those lyrics are from a Belinda Carlisle song!

"I Get Weak" is the title....

RM15 is definitely worth it... texture wise, many other stalls can rival close but the aroma is just "spot-on".

Life for Beginners said...

Oh I'd get weak too at such lardy goodness... *droools*

~Christine~Leng said...

oh gosh... i miss Msian siewyok....!!

Tummythoz said...

babe_kl, TQ. Was trying to recall that word - 'jelak'. So true. Cause drowsiness back in the office too.

Pass foodbin a mini fire extinguisher.

backStreetGluttons, as long as de-haired and de-ad.

Fezzaboy, your fav kara-oke song?

Skinny Life for Beginners, hmm.. somehow you don't have the build to show for it.

Christine Leng, come back & whack!

Jason said...

Em... it does looked a bit... pale? Pale pig? :P

Tummythoz said...

Jason, pale is the new ..er.. chomp-chomp-chomp.. delicious!
Tehehe.

sc said...

oh, you have posted it! hehe sorry, comment a bit late :). oh, official pork chopping time is 1230, not 1130. expensive la, but still OMG good lor..kaka

sc said...

just saw the direction question. :p yeah, it's turn left at caltex, drive on till you see the only mamak/ nasi kandar corner shop on your left(think this road is one way street).so,take the next left turn after the mamak shop. drive till end of road, turn left, you'll see wong kee diagonally across, on the right. alternatively, if it's from berjaya TS backroad, see ah koon fish ball shop on your left corner, drive on, turn right. drive on and turn left, will see wong kee too. when u guys going again? wanna join too :p. j2kfm?

Tummythoz said...

sc, TQ very muchie.

rokh said...
