Siew Yoke @ Wong Kee Restaurant, Jalan Nyonya, off Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur

Oh what a fun food-hunting weekend it was, armed with our Flavours magazine good food guide of Kuala Lumpur. We took mom- and bro-in-law to all the best places to eat all varieties of meat and poultry, seeing as we are a highly carnivorous clan.

After a heavy lunch or roast goose at Chen Chen BBQ, the greedy clan moved on to yet another family favourite. We had an immediately-after-lunch snack of siew yoke (roast pork belly), since we were in the Pudu neighbourhood. Lol!
8 big slabs of siew yoke hung behind the counter. Daily, Robert Wong, the proprietor, only starts selling his goods at 12.30pm sharp. By then, there was a ravenous crowd already gathered at Wong Kee Restaurant, all ready to devour the beautifully-golden siew yoke.

Other than the star attraction, Wong Kee also sells roast chicken and char siew. But we were too full to try either. We only had room for the prized siew yoke.

Robert Wong in action at his chopping board, with his first siew yoke slab of the day. It was gone in less than 10 minutes.
Finally, our plate of siew yoke for 3 persons came (RM13.00/strip/person). Mom said it was the best siew yoke she has ever eaten in her life.

The meat was tender (which is rare for siew yoke) and the skin was thin and crispy. And the taste - out of this world! Although I am not a big fan of siew yoke, I actually loved this one. Which explains why it was so popular. Everyone who comes here, orders siew yoke.

It's in one of the shophouses somewhere behind Berjaya Times Square mall. For a map, please refer to:
