Fried Pork

Browsing

Along the highway as I always travel back and forth, by trailing away Nibong Tebal small town sign board along the highway as it was last round that I was heading back to KL by following my best friends Ian, both he and his friend decided to bring me to dine in this small little town. They told me that you will be surprise what they can offer for that kind of cheap price. Cheap as in SERIOUSLY CHEAP. *doubting.

pork knuc (1)

Nibong Tebal is actually located at Penang, Mainland and I rate Swee Garden Seafood restaurant is a hidden gem in the town as a place that famous among local that is about 10 minutes drive away from the toll exit to reach here. Which is pretty easy to drive here by recognizing a huge flyover to make  a turn.

Was told by both of them have to reach here freaking early to avoid massive huge dinner crowd that many dining tables will spill out to the road side as we reach around 5.30pm to have a very early dinner before heading back to KL.

AS early as 5.30pm there are quite a number of families are already dining here.

Fried Lala with Ginger is something that is fried simple yet infuse with chinese wine in it make it very addictive with hint of some spicy from ginger and fine slice chili.

Asam Prawns is a big fat juicy prawns that well prepared and marinated. I whack nearly half of it.

pork knuc (5)

Simple fried veggie nothing much to shout about.

Signature Crispy Fried Pork Knuckle 

pork knuc (7)

A portion that most of the table would order or I would say must not miss. Deep fried to perfection that the skin is very crispy, yet the meat in it is still soft and the amount of fats in between is just nice. This is not German Pork Knuckle therefore they do not serve any gravy along as this is Chinese Cross over cuisine. Just serve along with pickled shallots and tomato slices. – Recommended!

Total Damage we had for the dinner is about RM 75 for 3 pax which I would rate it reasonable cheap and not as ‘very’ cheap as my friend mention since its located in this small town, as also since we have a huge chunk of Pork Knuckle and some seafood along its decently price in this small town.

Surely I would not mind to recommended for you to drive all the way here to try it out for travelers also.

There are many pork lovers out there when it comes to food. Just simple type any best pork food related you can see lots of searches come out and with much talk about since quite  a few months back, finally we make an effort to drop by on this much talk about among many blogger friends of mine on this caramelize Toast & Roast Char siew. .

char siew (1)

A place that is well hidden around the neighborhood yet it is very easily to be located as you enter the main road in SS2 Mall then just drive till the end you will see a few shop houses at the end which is a dead road.

char siew (2)

With so many strips of char siew hanging, these are all the temptations that keep calling our name.. . .:p

char siew (3)

char siew (4)

pricing wise on the food is on the average side a bit more than kopitiam but on their specialist on char siew I guess its a good price. . .

char siew (5)

a more clean version of kopitiam that you can expect.

char siew (6)

Here is the char siew as we ordered medium @ RM16

char siew (7)

Look at how well the char siew is coated, as my fave is always ‘pun fei sau’. For the first time I see a Char Siew that roast till so nice, as there are no burnt ends on it and so shinny and moist skin that s very caramelize . This Char Siew definitely stand above our expectation, the meat is soft and the taste just blend in so well, with a bit of sweet taste at the end. I sure do not mind to have the whole medium portion by myself.

char siew (8)

As the Roast Pork do not tempt me that much but my colleague wanted to try so we ordered a small portion. @ RM 4 if not mistaken. a finely cut slice of roast pork. As a comment, don bother to order. . .

char siew (9)

Ordered their Roast Chicken and turns out to be not bad. .

char siew (10)

as many people also talk about their Hakka Mee and one thing that first catch my eyes is the noodle is showered with lots of fried pork lard. Find that the noodle is a bit dry and tasted normal and I mee pork more (Tang Pin Kitchen ss2).

char siew (11)

I cannot remember what is this already as it is the special for the day. The gravy Green Curry is too spicy that over power the taste of the meat and it was serve cold. Not even warm.

If you do come to Roast & Toast, the only thing I would recommend to order is just the Char Siew and if you would want to have noodle to go along, the Hakka Noodle is not bad lah.. If not just Char Siew alone is good enough and here is my another favourite Char SIew Stall which located at Sea PArk (Ah Khai Char Siew) which is another version of roasting. Cannot be compared.

Bangkok Trip – After spending 2 hours at Pattaya Floating Market, then we are heading down to Pattaya town to further discover the place. . .

bkk day 3 (1)

So the driver told us that this temple is very nice and decided to drop us here for a quick prayer and we did also with some donations.

bkk day 3 (2)

bkk day 3 (3)

Further inside the city its like super long beach covers along with night entertainment which I will put inside another posting (so do watch out)

bkk day 3 (4)

Last time I remember I came accross a blog that there is a new mall opening and with huge open air concept area for F&B outlets by the beach side facing the sea and I could not remember what is that mall called already. Regreted didnt key it down and we ended up in this new mall Central Festival at Pattaya which is the Largest beachfront lifestyle mall Shopping Mall in Asia.

bkk day 3 (5)

Very nice Interior and well design mall, easy to walk around ..

bkk day 3 (6)

Best of all they have like indoor weekend market style ..

bkk day 3 (7)

After a quick walk, we were very hungry and head out, manage to peek outside the mall that they have a street of kopitiam style food and we quickly head there to hunt for food. There are about 9 stalls side by side and one of the stalls that attracted us in is PORK LEG!

bkk day 3 (8)

They are hot, thirsty and hungry . .

bkk day 3 (9)

this is the super star that makes us choose this stall that comes to Thai must not miss Pork Leg

bkk day 3 (10)

This is the most sinfull of all yet one of the best!!!

bkk day 3 (11)

we ordered one stripe of fried pork as I choose myself what part I wanted and its super crispy, the meat is soft and dip along with their own homemade sauce is superb! A MUST HAVE!

bkk day 3 (12)

Then followed by Pork leg, braised till meat is soft, pork skin near to melt in mouth and add in their own gravy to make it more moist.

bkk day 3 (13)

Tomyam seafood as we find that the different taste of Pattaya cooking style and Bangkok cooking style as Pattaya taste of soup heading  more sweet and sour not too spicy. .

bkk day 3 (15)

Tomyam pork definitely taste much better compare to the seafood one.

bkk day 3 (14)

Fried Omelet that is drench in oil yet very aromatic and we add on a bit chili sauce to perfected it. .It was indeed a satisfying meal . .

bkk day 3 (16)

As everyone is very satisfied now, we head to the beach area to take a peak as we have very limited time in Pattaya .. .

bkk day 3 (17)

Feels like I am at Batu Ferringi just that they have lots of beach umbrella side by side .. .

bkk day 3 (18)

bkk day 3 (19)

bkk day 3 (20)

bkk day 3 (21)

AS the weather is killing us, all of them want to head back to the mall then only we saw superb architecture of Hilton hotel that overlook the beach front which is inside the Central Festival Mall.

bkk day 3 (25)

bkk day 3 (26)

One of the thing I realize is that this little desert stall is every where in Bangkok and also even in Pattaya, Ice Monster, that I often saw alot people queuing for it. As this round we nearly melt from the weather outside, we decided to try out by enjoying the mall air condition.

bkk day 3 (27)

Under customize section, you can get to choose the ice and toppings you want as we are lazy to choose we choose the one in the menu.

bkk day 3 (28)

bkk day 3 (29)

bkk day 3 (30)

bkk day 3 (31)

Overall, we didnt really like the desert as find it a bit too sweet to our liking, very milky and the texture is more like Ice Kacang ice based top with some fruits and milk/ chocolate syrup.

After the first 4 restaurant hop, I am nearly Ko’ed with the food that was offered that even though not much on each restaurant, as heading to the 5th restaurant Vietnam Kitchen, I am already start to drag myself there even though Vietnamese food is also one of my favorite.

In Malaysia, we have many types of Kopitiam, ranging from Hainanese, our traditional weekend joint nearby a market or at your favourite shop most of the time. I come across to most kopitiam have their own style of cooking especially those more to homecook style. Surisit The Thai Kopitiam is the latest joint that offer thai authentic cuisine that start to operate in this industry that hidden right in the heart of Taman Tun Dr.Ismail which is hidden right behind CIMB back area. .

You can find alot of Thai authentic food out there, with one good thing about this place is that you cant find many Thai Food that serve PORK and this is one I come across that makes us keen on it.

Surisit (1)

The kopitiam is easily spotted as its the only kopitiam that operate with pale orange colour lighting and wooden plants and wooden chairs right outside the shop.

Thai Bottle Drinks especially with fanta. . . .

Surisit (6)

Surisit (5)

If you travel to Thai, a few types of chili will be placed on the table to suits you or to spice you up.

Surisit (7)

Soya CinCau @ RM 7.90

Surisit (8)

Start off our first dish with Pucuk Paku Yam Pla or kerabu pucuk paku @ RM14.90/15.90. I find this dish is very appetizing or maybe I love sour taste to start off with, not only that, this dish is served cold and once start eating eat, I cant stop as it taste sour, little spicy and hint of coconut. – Recommended~

Surisit (9)

Next dish that is served that steal our hearts away instantly is this very fragrant Mun Thod Gapi @ RM16.90/24.90 or crispy fried pork served with their own home made chili. It was good, with its crispy skin, and the texture of pork is soft and evenly seperated out with some slices are filled with fats that some of my friends like it, and I love mine with just some fats. This plate was gone instantly. .  Recommended~ 

Surisit (10)

Kheng Som Pla @ RM32.90 known as  sour orange curry fish with vegetables. Its another dish that not to be miss when dine in a Thai restaurant or usually you would either order this or the fried fish. For soupy fans, you might enjoy this too as the fish is fried first instead of steam then bath with the soup. The crust of it is crispy, then eat along with the sour spicy soup. The soup is pretty additive to me tho . .

Surisit (14)

Pla Neung Prik Ma-Nao @ RM32.90 is another dish that must look out as the fish is deep fried then sprinkle with fine chili, lime, garlic and spring onion on top of it make it a bit challenging to eat as I cant really take spicy. This fish was evenly distributed with some people like to eat the fins, heads as it is very cripsy and fragrant yet best part of all, the fish is fresh as the meat is soft also must eat along with gravy on top.

Surisit (11)

Thai style fried egg omelette or Cha Om @ RM9.90

Surisit (12)

Kao Klut Gapi @ RM14.90/18.90 or belacan fried rice that serve along with sweetened pork

Surisit (13)

Then you just  mix everything in the plate  . . .. The combination of all flavours makes it extra kick, with cili padi, yet you get to taste sour lime as I squeeze both lime on top and young mango, then sweetened pork gravy.

Surisit (15)

We always would prefer go traditional as original tomyam is in clear soup just that malaysians had made it to fiery red style tom yam and we still stick to trandtional ones, comes this Tomyam Ka Moo @ RM25.90. The soup is good as it was cook along with pork and was very sourish just that it was not spicy as we expected, then after that we ask the person, they said this is the standard taste and we can request it to be spicier which we would next round~

Surisit (16)

Torb Tim Krob @ RM5.90 

Surisit (17)

So far,  Mango Pulut (Glutinous Rice with Mango) is offer in many Thai restaurant, this is quite good as the mango is very fresh, soft sweet and juicy, then eat along with soft sticky rice which top with coconut milk that makes it frangrant to eat along with the sweet mango @ RM8.90

Definitely this will be our another Thai restaurant to be in our hit list and we will definately will come back for more, as the chef actually allow us to order things off from the menu or just tell him a budget and he will prepare good authentic thai food for us. Just that need to book 3 days in advance. If you are looking for good thai food, this is one to hunt for. .  Recommended~

‘Claypot Chicken Curry’  is thick in gravy, a bit spicy yet not too much of coconut milk added in, eating it with the rice is just a perfect combination. RM6 (small portion)

‘Assam Fish’ Sour and spicy in taste with Kembung fish to cook along, meat is quite soft and I thought if add my favorite fish ‘sting ray’ in it would be even better.
