As someone who is born and raised in Penang, we often put Penang hawker food on top of the chart. However, when it comes to Roasted Pork or “Siew Yoke” (烧肉), this part of the country definitely gain the upper hand. See, even babe_kl knows how to make it herself.

Note: not to be confused with BBQ Pork or “Char Siew” (叉烧)

Jalan Nyonya Roasted Pork, Siew Yoke
there is no branch, this is the only place you can get it

My buddy Terence happened to be in town yesterday and suggested we go to this roasted pork place near the defunct Pudu Jail. Having gotten bored of the food nearby KLCC, I naturally agreed.

The restaurant is situated at the junction of Jalan Nyonya and Lorong Baba, certainly an address that is easy to remember. It is a normal kopitiam set up, but with only the single stall serving roasted pork, bbq pork, and roasted chicken. They only cater for lunch crowd, starting at 12:30pm sharp and usually only lasts for a couple hours.

Jalan Nyonya Roasted Pork, Siew Yoke
the siew yoke.. *droolsSsss*

We ordered two portions of roasted pork and a small plate of roasted chicken to go with the rice. Soup is available and self-served.

The meat is chopped in quite big chunks. I carefully took the first piece and put it in my mouth, and in a couple seconds, the crispy skin completely melted. This is sort of like the feeling you get chewing down the most tender piece of filet mignon. It was the best roasted pork I’ve ever had, even though I don’t always like to use the word best describing food. You just simply have to try it to believe.

the kopitiam is just a short walk from Berjaya Times Square

This place is definitely not cheap, one portion (一条) roasted pork is RM 12, and one of this mouth-watering meat will set you back RM 60. Our meal for two totaled slightly over RM 30. However, this stuff is just that good and I will for sure go there again and again.

  1. HELL YEAH !!!! damn ON siew yoke….slurps….. the soup’s not bad too…. i down TWO bowls and still manage to munch the siew yoke…..on on on..

    try bringing some to your colleague ….i am sure they enjoy having lembu kecil

  2. aiyoh this place… i ate the siew yuk here for lunch, so jelak until dinner oso no need to makan LOL the siew yuk is simply too fat! the first time i went there with 3 other coliks, we nearly flipped when the bill came hahaha RM23 just for the small plate of siew yuk. so now you know why i make siew yuk myself kakaka

  3. you should try the place in Damansara Utama, where the old de champion duck is, since the end of last year it has been run by the fella who used to run his business in section 17…his siew yoke is to die for…and it doesnt cost and arm and leg….maybe the pigs have sacrifice their arms and legs and belly for that siew yoke.

    there is another place near bkt jalil….but that place is simply too far to go …for me at least

  4. Robert Wong (the sifu) mobile number is 0122690660
    Call him to book in advance. OR to check whether is he open.
    A piece of advice, try not to go there on friday. You will end up waiting 1hr, (even you placed a booking)

  5. damnit never ajak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

  6. Hey, I also ate here before but yet to blog abt it (when I do, can I link you up?). The siu yoke is so fat, we counted the layers but you don’t taste it as the fat melts in yr mouth – amazing!

  7. I highly recommend this place too!

  8. Yummzzz….will sure check this place out.

  9. abit too pricey, in my opinion… maybe will just try once and that’s it.

  10. I checked this place out on tuesday. Enjoyed the siew yoke tremendously BUT had food poisoning!!! I am just recovering, the food there is just too oily dude. Lim Kit Siang was there on tuesday too (i wonder if he was puking his guts out like me). hmm.

  11. […] Lunch was great. Lunch took half an hour. We were stuck in the horrible KL traffic for 5 hours. […]

  12. We’re from Singapore and we were with Suanie (above post). Best siew yoke ever had in KL and will go back there again next visit!

  13. yes i do agree that this is the best siew yok ever! have been eating it for few years (since my fren recommended) and am salivating just thinking bout it! :)

  14. […] I first visited this stall some 3 years ago, that was way before this blog was born and way before I had any camera phone worth using (though the current one is due for a better replacement, but that’s another story). We recently visited this stall again when discovering that the nearby 王美记 Roasted Pork was closed on Sunday. […]

  15. According to ront, he mentioned there is a good place to eat siu yok near Bukit Jalil. May I have more information on that? The address, shop name? I would really love to know and I stay in Bukit Jalil.

  16. hopped over from lyrical lemongrass’s blog..my god, so glad I found u !! bookmarked on my malaysia makan page hehe, this will come in handy when i get home..i luv it when u’ve got all the descriptions down to the map, thx ! :)

  17. […] KL beats PJ when it comes to pubs and clubs ANYTIME ( I am developing an affection for Bar Ceylon as it is ). KL has the BEST siu yok my family and I ever had, KL has a functioning bus station which is useful if you do not wish to drive back home ( Johor for me ), and… that’s about it. Everything else, I can easily get in PJ. I don’t even need to go to Low Yat for tech stuff — Computer War and Digital Mall serve my purposes just fine. […]

  18. […] While the chicken meat was pretty decent, and the innards rather rich. The char siew was really one of the best I’ve had. The taste and texture were spot on, slightly sweet but very flavorful. If only we can have this and the famous Pudu Siew Yoke (烧肉) at the same time and same place. ahh…. […]

  19. […] – Since I was in the vicinity and it was around lunchtime, I drove a short distance to Jln. Nyonya to have siu yok fan. Turns out that the dude doesn’t sell his femes siu yok until 12.30 p.m. so I had to wait 15 minutes for ‘opening time’. Meanwhile a kakak working there boasted to me of their employer’s excellent siu yok, and the hard work of constant poking the meat that goes into the preparation that commences at 8.30 a.m. every working day. At 12.45 p.m. my siu yok fan was served to me… […]

  20. […] pretty much everything from this place over the years. While it might not carry the wow factor like siu yoke at Pudu or char siu at Aman Suria, everything do tastes pretty good and proper, just like how they […]

  21. […] initial plan was for Wong Meng Kei Siu Yoke at Pudu, but we decided to go for Ngau Kei Beef Noodle at Tengkat Tong Shin instead after […]

  22. […] The restaurant is located just behind Berjaya Times Square on Lorong Thambi Dua, not far from the best roasted pork in town at Wong Mei Kee. […]

  23. […] and some good-food publications for its famous roasted pork, 燒肉. SinChew Online Yummy Dining KY Speaks Lots of […]

  24. Hi, does anyone knows when is the rest day for the stall? And does it still open at 12.30pm sharp now? Thks

  25. zir,
    yes it is still open at the same time, i think sunday off. :)

  26. […] down to KL and bought me birthday lunch. Since it was a little too early for the best roast pork at Wong Meng Kee (they only start serving at 12:30pm sharp), Terence suggested that we head to Thim Kee Steamed […]

  27. […] that it is the best roast pork I’ve had, but it is tough to rate it any lower than the one at Wong Kee, Pudu. They are essentially different, the version here is softer and goes well with mustard, while […]

  28. hye… how to cook siew yoke?

  29. […] by us. One one fateful noon over the weekends, Haze and I had initially wanted to go to Wong Kee for some roast pork (best you can find in KL really), but when we reached there, the roast pork had already ran […]
