A few Saturdays ago, after I dropped dad's stash of frozen porridge at my brother's house, I left with my partner with the intention of going home to clean my house.
I had been so busy cooking over the weekends that my housekeeping was neglected. When the house is messy, my head gets messy as well. I cannot stand chaos. So I had to clean up.
When we were at the traffic light outside 1 Utama, my partner suddenly piped up that he was hungry. Pulak. I told him that we should have stopped at Damansara Jaya to have a bite to eat.
So instead of going home, we headed back to Damansara Jaya again where my partner suggested we try Boon Signature Roast Pork because he remembered me mentioning this place to him.
|I took this photo just as we were leaving. The crowd had already had their fill.|
It was still early and yet when we got there, the place was bustling. We were lucky to get a seat for two right at a tight corner.
I'm sorry I don't remember much of the menu or the prices. This brunch date was a blur to me as I was not in the right state of mind.
So anyway, since we were at Boon Signature Roast Pork, the order of the day was to try the signature roast pork.
My partner went with the wanton mee and roast pork,
I must say that the serving of roast pork was quite a good portion.
He said that the roast pork was good and he enjoyed the wanton mee.
In spite of being blur and all, I was greedy. Roast pork or char siew? So I got both with rice.
Now, what stood out about the roast pork was the skin. It was super crispy and crunchy. It was the puffed up sort of light crispiness, I don't know how else to describe it.
As for taste, it is distinctly different from the regular siew yoke that you get at the chicken rice shop. As I understand it, it is more of the western style roast pork like what I had here. I'm afraid I still prefer the taste of regular siew yoke.
As for the char siew, I was happy with it, sweet and smoky with the right ratio of fat to lean.
The soup that came with it was just OK to me but my partner seemed to enjoy it.
Apparently this restaurant now opens for dinner which means that it would be more convenient for us to visit.
Oh yeah, they have roast chicken too. So maybe on our next visit, I could give that a try. Another thing on the menu that I noticed is Iberico siew yoke. Maybe I'll have that with my brother one of these days.
