bookmark_borderLunch At Wong Meng Kee 王美记, Off Jalan Pudu Kuala Lumpur

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.

bookmark_borderRoasted Duck Rice By Sing Kee Kitchen, Taman Desa

On one hazy hot afternoon, me and my colleague made our way to a shop in Taman Desa for lunch. Although they serve other foods such as noodles and mixed economy rice, it is said that they are famous for its forte; roasted duck rice.

Sing Kee Kitchen

This shop, which occupies two shoplots, is situated in busy business area of Taman Desa and one would likely to miss this out as the shop is not-so-visible from the main road. If you know where Wisma Telekom Taman Desa is, then it is safe to say that finding this shop will be a breeze.

Ice Barley Water

As we arrived at about 12.45pm, the lunch crowd was about to build up. But thankfully, we were able to grab a sit without hassle. Upon sitting down, there will be a waiter / waitress to take you order.

Chili Sauce

It didn’t take long for our food to arrive; say 5-10 minutes. As a carnivore, I opted for roasted duck and pork rice (a.k.a. Siew Yoke) while my colleague ordered a normal duck rice. The duck meat was good, tender yet juicy and not chewy and the skin was kinda crispy. Topped with their sauce, it makes one craving for more.

Roasted Duck Rice

The roasted pork was equally good as well. The skin was crunchy yet not too salty and the meat was tender and succulent with a good amount of lard in between them. It literally melts in your mouth (not the skin, of course!) as you munch away piece by piece.

I didn’t know about this shop’s specialty at first but now that I do, I wouldn’t mind going back there again if that’s if I got extra time during lunch hour. Give it a try if you are in Taman Desa, especially around Jalan Desa Bakti.
