Although I love eating vegetables, all kinds of it and am happy just having those. But then there are days where I am an absolute carnivore when all I want to eat is just meat & meat only. Sometimes its worth traveling way out of my way just to get something good to eat.

Mother brought us all the way to Puchong to try out some BKT. Apparently she was brought there by a client and really liked the food, even if it is way out of our way. Plus going there in the afternoon is kind of crazy since it's super hot and when drinking soup, it's just going to make you sweat even more. 

 
An order we go that had me going slightly crazy was the paper wrapped herbal chicken. Although the size of it was small, the super soft & tender meat that has absorbed all the flavour of the sauce just makes it easy to overlook that. I really liked coating my rice with the thick and heavily flavoured sauce, eating all the goji berry at the same time. The onyl thing is I wish there was more of the sauce rather than the scarce amount that we got. 

 
And of course we had to get an order of BKT plus some braised pork too. The one here was pretty good because the soup had a strong flavour of herbs which was just to our liking, plus each spoonful of scalding hot BKT soup was worth it despite the heat. 

I'd definitely drive up to Ah Soon just to have my fix of meat & BKT. :3

Crab explosion. Smile Jan 06, 2016

After seeing a picture of chilli crab on our mutual friend's Facebook timeline, my friend & I were dying to have some too. So what other place to go to that is nearby us other than Mei Keng Fatt and also because that's where we saw the picture too.

Funnily enough I have not dined there for years ever since their prices has gone rather high and is now meant more for tourists rather than locals. However I can't deny that their food is pretty good if not for the price tag that is attached to each dish that's enough to make you sweat a little. 

Still, a craving is often times stronger than any form of logic so we ventured there anyway. Anything for good food especially when it's all we can think of.

 
Of course we had to order the chilli crab and mantaos, half fried and half are steamed. We most definitely preferred the deep fried ones because they are crisp on the outside but super soft on the inside, absorbing the sauce super well. As for the crabs they are quite big and the meat was very fresh. 

 
We also ordered another plate of salted egg yolk crab. The man that took our order said he would give us an offer of Rm50 only as opposed to the original price and we were sure glad to have taken it. Honestly I much preferred this in comparison the the chilli crab, only because this was like an overdose of salted egg yolk. Plus the meat was super sweet because the crab is fresh. 

Although the price is higher than what you would regularly pay for at other seafood places, its worth trying.

If there are any out there that absolutely adores any dish that involves pork, especially super succulent and tender pork meat, then Champ Kitchen is definitely the place to go to. Where their meats are usually braised for no less than 24 hours and provide very home-styled cooking, this is the restaurant that you want to visit to get your meat fix. 

 
The one thing that they are very famous for is the braised pork shoulder that usually comes in one long log simmering in a claypot. However that is enough to feed a table of at least eight people, so for only three to four companies you can opt for half of the shoulder portion.

The meat apparently is braised for 72 hours which is why it is meltingly tender and also super flavourful. Having this with the sauce doused over a bowl of hot rice is super comforting however not exactly ideal for those that are watching their diet, being the new year and all. 

 
Because I saw this on the menu and it is my absolute favourite, we also ordered the braised pork belly with preserved vegetable. Although all you see is one slab of meat plus a lot of the vegetables and sauce, rest assured that the size of meat is bigger than what you would expect.

However I am not quite into the taste of this as I am more familiar to a sweeter version of this dish that my grandma always makes - though with that being said, this is also quite good. Everyone at the table couldn't get enough of it.

 
To counteract the artery clogging meats, we also got some steamed lettuce with garlic oil. This was alright but not as healthy as I thought it would be because there was a lot of oil and also some soya sauce. Pretty alright but nothing to shout about.

It was an aunt's birthday that day and we were all craving for good thai food. Since we were around Kepong area, they decided to bring us to try this thai place which they gave quite good reviews of. I went with high hopes because Thai food is really my favourite. 

 
No thai food dinner is complete without ordering Tom Yum Soup and we got a pot of White Seafood tom yum to share. It was as expected and served in a claypot steaming hot. The soup was spicy with a nice touch of sourness. This was pretty good however slightly small portion wise as it only yielded about five bowls of soup at most. But the plus side however, the prawns and squid were very fresh so those added a nice sweetness to the soup. 

 
Instead of the usual mango salad that we'd get, my aunt suggested trying this pickled brinjal that comes with salted eggs. The idea of it was very unusual and when the dish arrived, I was quite put off by how anemic the vegetable looked. Although it did not taste bad and had the soury-spicy kick you would usually get from a mango salad, the spongy pickled brinjal was just not to my liking. 

 
Then because we were all craving for it, we got the steamed squid with garlic, lime and chilli sauce. This was amazing because it had everything that I like. The sauce is super spicy and sour which compliments the succulently sweet squid that was super fresh. I couldn't stop going back for more and more of the sauce that remained hot throughout because of the heat it sat on top of. But the squid never got super crunchy and overcooked which makes this dish the star of the night. Perfect.

There was plenty more on the menu that looks amazing which we have yet to try. So we will most definitely be back for more some time soon.

Pork Overload  Smile Dec 06, 2015

One weekend when my paternal side of family members were free, we all took a drive down just to have a good time together. And what better way to enjoy our fellowship than with some good food which is why we chose to have lunch at Siaw Kah, again, to have our fill of pork dishes. 

 
We ordered Nam Yuu braised Pork Belly. This dish is alwys vry comforting because I remember having it as a kid - just have the sauce doused over a bowl of hot rice while the prok was cut into little pieces for me. Not many restaurants do this dish justice but Siaw KAh makes it super well, especially since it comes out piping hot from the kitchen. Have this with rice & you'll be sent to calorie heaven.

 
As always with my family, it isn't a proper meal unless there is claypot braised pork belly with salted fish. We have always liked the one from another restaurant and haven't found another that cooks this dish better, until we tried the one at Siaw Kah. It is nicely salted with a light touch of heat from the dried chilies. Nothing was left in the pot by the end of the meal.

 
Then we will always get one of our favourite dishes, a giant bowl of vinegar pork trotters. Many other places makes this dish more subtle in flavours however my family prefers those that are strongly tasting which is more sour, sweet and spicy. Which is why we always order whenever we're at Siaw Kah cause they do this dish to our preferred liking and are quite generous with their portions.

Although this place is a little far from home, we would be willing to drive there just to have a good meal. However please dress in shorts and comfortable t-shirt because it can be crazily hot dining there especially with the food you order, but I assure you that it is worth it.
