My First Taste of Wild Boar Curry


Ever since my partner refused to go back to Goodness Greens, we have returned to Restoran Yik Kee@TTDI. My partner prefers this type of food, rice with dishes rather than my keto, quinoa, salada and funny funny stuff.

This restaurant continues to enjoy good business as they were almost full house when we got there. Luckily there was a small table for us.

I have been curious about wild boar meat and on our previous visit, I noted that they serve wild boar curry. As usual, we ordered 4 dishes.


I like the fish slices fried with ginger.


This is the first time we ordered the ladies fingers. My partner enjoyed this very much. I would prefer it with sambal.


I forgot that we ordered this crispy tofu before.


Now, the wild boar curry. I was rather disappointed that the meat was all mushy with bone splinters. I suspect this curry had been reheated many times, hence the mushy meat. Perhaps this is not one of their popular dishes. Taste wise, the curry was good. I guess we won't be ordering this again.

  2. I have wild boar in the freezer but no, I'm not cooking curry with it. What a waste of good wild boar, drowns out all the lovely fragrance and taste. Ok if it is too young, not so nice, the meat.

  6. It has been a long time since I last ate wild boar, not easily accessible here in Ipoh. Okra is one of my favorite greens, I can eat them steamed like this too...

  7. I know hardly a few men who would choose all this green fashionable food than a good filling food as you have shown here:)

  8. I've not eaten wild boar meat on the bone. I usually have it in slices cooked in curry. Your partner is so easy to please...steamed okra is so easy to do at home (I do it all the time). Just steam the okra and add soya sauce, fried garlic and garlic oil and it's done! ;)

  10. Need to be tender then it would be good. Too tough, I can't bite with my teeth. Lol.

    I tasted before, once I think. My in-laws cooked but I prefer the lemongrass, ginger version. The wild boar meat could be strong for curry.

  12. Wild boar meat is not supposed to be mushy, maybe your guess is correct, reheat too many times >_<

    1. Not a popular dish I suppose. They should remove from the menu.
