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!
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.
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.
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.
“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.
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
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.
