Siew Yok / Shio Bak / Roasted Pork @ Wong Kee 王美记
30 Jalan Nyonya 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Nobody goes to Kuala Lumpur without having some Siew Yok. If you are informed, you will arrive before 12:30pm at Wong Kee. This is one diva store. It starts serving only at 12:30, and ends at 4:30pm. Sometimes they are sold out before 4:30pm! Be prepared to wait for at least 30 mins before you receive your order.
We arrived at 12:30pm, and the shop was already filled with customers. There is a soup line where customers can help themselves with some herbal soup while waiting.
Finally, after some 40 minutes.
The golden brown skin is roasted crispy. The layers of fat makes it soft and juicy. Plain decadence.
I had to hold back on having a few more pieces, and I took only a quarter of the rice.
Interesting fact: Only soft drinks and pre-brewed drinks like Barley, Chin Chow were available at lunch. Apparently the person who prepares tea and coffee goes off during lunch.
Cuisine: Asian, Chinese
Style: Kopitiam / Casual Neighbourhood
Mood: Noisy, Down-to-earth
Cafe Latte (Latte Art) @ Komugi
P6.24.1A, Tokyo Street, Level 6 @ Pavilion KL
168, Jalan Raja Chulan, 55100 Kuala Lumpur
Coffee. The antidote to battle the afternoon food coma. I am a big fan of latte art, and this made me really happy.
Besides Smurf, apparently they can do Hello kitty, Snoopy, and Angry Birds!
The cafe was previously named En Ginza. They have some really cute pastries and delectable-looking desserts as well. It was a waste, I just couldn’t stomach anything else.
Cuisine: Western, Fusion, Japanese
Price: Affordable, RM$9.90 for latte
Style: Cafe, Mall
Mood: Family, Girls Afternoon out
Part 3 – dinner & dessert.
I decided not to do a separate post because it wasn’t much of a something to rave about. Dinner was at a Mamak, aka store by the road with local Malay & Indian fare. The one we went to was at Jalan Gading, but you can pretty much find a Mamak everywhere in Malaysia.
After checking in my luggage at the airport, I had sometime to spare and decided to check out Chocolate Lounge.
This is good! Iced Chocolate topped with a scoop of chocolate ice-cream. Not too rich, not too sweet. It was just enough to satisfy the kick.
