Kuala Lumpur - Best Roast Pork at Wong Kee

klyeoh | Dec 20, 2010 07:21 PM

Finally tried the much talked about crispy-skinned roast pork (siew yoke) at Wong Kee yesterday. It was as good as what everyone said - the pork crackling was absolutely crisp & shattered at the lightest bite.

Wong Kee also served barbecued pork (char-siew) although their version is not as fragrant or caramelly as Overseas restaurant chain's. Their roast chicken was also fairly bland and featureless.

Wong Kee offered either chicken rice or plain white rice options to accompany their roast meats. Their chicken rice was touted to be one of the better ones in Kuala Lumpur, but I personally felt that chicken rice in Singapore (in almost any restaurant) is miles ahead of any Malaysian version I'd tried.

But Wong Kee's roast pork - oh Gawd, it's absolutely the BEST!
