PJ: Roast Pork @ Restoran Siew Yok

I was out in Taman Megah for lunch and we saw this new restaurant opened up next to Restoran Fu Kua that’s specialising in Roast Pork and the name of the place says it all Restoran Siew Yok!

This bright red sign board restaurant offers roast pork (siew yok) in a few varieties, they have the Yellow Gold which is the crispy version, Melting Gold which is less crispy but inside is softer and tender and the last is Black Gold which the skin is black in color as a result of a black vinegar being applied on it while roasting.

They also offers 3 types of char siew (bbq pork) which is the sweet (hint of chinese wine), sweet savoury (classic dark look) and spicy (tangy, sweet with a kick) variants. They also have a list of other special orders as well from big slap of roast pork to ribs, roast duck, goose, etc.

Both the siew yok ad char siew are offer at RM13.50 for a small plate, RM25.00 for medium and RM 35.00 for a big plate. I must say, pork is getting really expensive these days!

We ordered a large Trifecta (RM35.00) on the menu, which is a mixture of all the 3 types of siew yok offered and a small plate of the sweet char siew.

The yellow gold is crispy as promised, the melting gold is softer and black gold, can’t taste too much of the vinegar but quiet unique, overall its not bad but a bit costly in my opinion. The sweet char siew’s wine flavouring is a bit too strong but quite tasty.

Overall food is ok (its siew yok after all) but pricing is a bit on the high side on my opinion.
