Savory Pork Trotters

Chinese New Year is just around the corner.Families around the world will gather and enjoy the reunion dinner tonight. It will be a night of laughter,fun,lots of stories and chatter about the past year.And one of the most important  thing tonight will be-home cooked food! Everyone who was not around either working or studying abroad would have missed their mother’s home cooking dearly.

Talk about good food,we recently chanced upon to dine in a special restaurant. The place is called Kedai Makan Choy Kee( malay), 财记饭店 (mandarin chinese),which means Choy Kee Restaurant.This specific restaurant is famous for its savory pork trotters 咸猪手ham ju sau,cantonese or xian zhu shou,mandarin) and river fish dishes. I’ve been longing to try the dishes since 2 years ago after seeing a review in a local newspaper.Yes,it is that damn good !

When we arrived there,it was 830pm and the staffs are already packing and cleaning up the restaurant. I almost frowned.But suddenly a lady came out and asked us if we still want to dine in.It was the boss,herself.With much gratitude,we accepted the offer.

Without haste,we ordered for their best dish-Savory pork trotters !

The meat is just the right texture-soft,smooth,not flaky.Its very rich in flavors too as it was braised till such perfection. The skin is so fragrant and jelly like,it melts in your mouth.

Since only two of us dining,we did not order any of the river fishes. Never mind, that’s for next time. Just like the Terminator -” I’ll be back !”

Th soup was splendid.A great concoction of oyster sauce, sesame oil,light soy sauce,brown sugar,cinnamon sticks,star anise, wolf berries and a few secret ingredients i can't decipher!. Just great! I give it -Two thumbs up and a button down!

Honestly,we had a great meal.And we would really recommend this restaurant to anyone! The service and quality of food served is five stars.Prices are reasonable too.One dish of savory pork trotters is just Rm 35 which 5 people(picky eaters) or 3 people(average sized stomach) can share.

The place is located in Sungkai area ,Perak state in Malaysia. Here’s the location-

Just follow the North south Highway from Kl to Ipoh.Exit at the Sungkai toll.Just follow the main road and head into Sungkai town.
