Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Wong Kee, Pudu

You must try the siew yoke at Wong Kee! I told CW some 9 months back as he is a pork lover.
It's sooo, sooo good! I exclaimed, though I didnt have it for a few years already..
So, while the cat's away, the mouse will play..
In this case, my boss was not in recently, I managed to convince CW and Bernice to have Wong Kee's famous siew yoke (roasted pork). It was rather early when we reached Wong Kee, we still had the luxury to choose our seats..
Ordering was prompt, waiting was rather long though...
After some time, craning our necks, checking on the busy owner busily chopping away, we finally have the plate of siew yoke.My goodness, I had to do a double take as it looks like it was glowing!! *background music: hallelujah! hallelujah! hallelujah!...* :-D
Though the breathtaking siew yoke was sitting there looking all pretty, beckoning us to eat it..We did not have our rice yet! The wait was excrutiating :-(
Bernice and CW attacked the siew yoke the moment we get our cutleries. Silence ensued..
I took a bite of piece of siew yoke....
Tasted terrific. The skin was crunchy; meat was tender and juicy; the fats, pratically melts and glides down my throat. The most amazing thing was, the siew yoke was still warm, even to the last piece. Drizzled with that sauce...The combination is just...Potent...
So, how was it? I asked, after witnessing CW and Bernice gobbling down the siew yoke..
This is The best siew yoke I've ever tasted, CW exclaimed. When are we coming again? he asked, while eating the last piece of siew yoke
I looked at Bernice. SC, I dont eat siew yoke at all. Always thought it tasted porky. But this..this! I'm bringing my hubby this saturday!
Guess I've converted Bernice ;-)
Our total bill was RM39, not cheap at RM12 per siew yoke strip, but man, it's worth every ringgit of it... :-)

I actually counted the layers of fat once. After I popped in the mouth, we all said what the heck, who cares abt the fat since it melts in the mouth.

wmw: when are you ladies going? i wanna go too!

nina: hopefully my directions helps.. Drive along Jalan Pudu (from Pudu jail) towards Pudu area. Turn left when you see a Caltex (at the corner) into Jalan Brunei. Drive a lil more, you'll see a small open carpark on your left. Turn left at the road next to it( Jln Brunei Barat; not sure if one way street though, i usually walk), drive till the end. You'll see Wong Kee right across the road, corner shop. Email me if you need another direction to get there (via Berjaya TS backroad)
