There are times when there are no words can describe how awesome a food is as it happened to me a few times over the years. And it happened again recently as the expression of words seems to fail me when I had a mouthful of this delicious siew yoke that I’m going to talk about. It was that good that I’d rather show some photos of it to tempt you to have a go at it… that’s if you haven’t which I honestly think it’s a BIG mistake!

Seating Area

Crowds begin to assemble at this coffeeshop at about 1220PM to hold their places and at 1230PM, finding an empty table seems like a difficult task (albeit it’s not impossible). Going any earlier will do you no good as they only start selling at 1230PM onwards. Hence, you still need to wait even if you are there at 12PM.

Soups

Chicken Rice

Unlike takeaways, the waitress will walk around taking orders and amazingly, she was able to do it (taking multiple orders) at one go without jotting down in a notebook/paper. Flexing her superior memory muscles? Maybe but she failed to remember one of our orders. Soups are available at the self-service counters while chili sauce is placed on each table.

Wong Meng Kee Roast Pork Belly (Siew Yoke)

Reputably as the legendary, it is THE place to have siew yoke (roast pork belly). Hearing how good it is doesn’t do any justification as you need to be there to sink your sharp teeth into the meat and savour every moment of it.

Wong Meng Kee Siew Yoke

“Melt in your mouth” is just figure of speech but to experience it will definitely bring you to a new level (some say to heaven, I kid you not.). Crispy crackling skin, fatty with lean meat in between, it is just too sinfully good that you can eat it on its own.

Roast Chicken

BBQ Pork (Char Siew)

Even the roast chicken and BBQ Pork (char siew) would gladly play the second fiddles to let the siew yoke to shine on its own. Yes, it’s that good awesome.

Wong Meng Kee Chicken Rice

The price came to about RM58.70 for 2 portions of siew yoke, a portion of BBQ pork (char siew) and roast chicken each, two plates of rice, fresh coconut and a can of Coke. This means a strip (portion) of siew yoke will set you back around RM15. It might be expensive for some but it is definitely the place to go if you are craving for good awesome siew yoke.

  4. Hey. Haha :D I was actually viewing Robin’s blog then I came across your blog. By the way, your pictures are really nice! You are the one who use the compact camera if I’m not wrong?

  5. Wow! The siew yoke looks delicious!! : )

  6. Wow if RM15 is the correct price, then that’s a really hefty price for a portion of siew yuk! It does look really awesome though…the proportion of fat vs meat looks very good and the slices look thick enough to satisfy..hehe

  7. Tracy : Hi! Yea, some of my photos were taken using compact camera. And thank you for your kind compliments! :D

    foongpc : They look delicious but taste awesome!

    Adam : Yeah, it’s pretty pricey. Hence, it would be once in awhile meal instead of everyday. Haha.

  8. Sorry but the food isn’t exactly photogenic but of course, the test of the pudding is in the eating. Can’t judge by appearance…but the price! Gee! That does not come cheap, I must say…

  9. suituapui : Yeap, it’s not cheap but it’s good. You should try it if you’re in KL some day. Haha.
