When I was little, I used to watch my dad prep his special, secret recipe, Roast Pork (Siew Yoke) in the back kitchen in Ipoh. I remember the distinct aroma wafting from the kitchen that got my salivary glands going – till today, he is still the best cook I know, so any Siew Yoke that can have a crackling skin as good as the one he makes, is a winner in my books.
Here are our Top 10 Siew Yoke Joints around KL. There are actually a lot more, but for the sake of this post, we have narrowed it down to 10. If you have a favourite you want to share, then point us in the direction, and we will go check it out!
1. Gerai No.4 / Chen Kee Segambut Siew Yoke
This place is famous amongst the locals for its double boiled soups and Siew Yoke.
The owner wears a face mask for hygiene’s sake, so he does not get any stray liquid into the meat he is chopping. How very thoughtful!
