Pork Rib Rice

It was just as usual as you pee and fart, just another lunch during the weekday. However, it has been long that I had not lunch together with my so called mom in-law. MIL has been extreme busy after her conversion, not Barisan to Pakatan coversion but contractor to regular employee conversion. Not that contractor has easy life and enjoy more than regular employee (it should be the other way right?), but MIL has different principal to hold, a regular employee must commit to work more than contractor especially she is a de facto leader of a team! :P

So how could I refuse when MIL asked for lunch after almost 2 months, and isn't it the responsibility of a son in law to take the MIL to where she wanted to go and what she wanted to eat? Moreso to my favourite porkie stall. Hehe...



Look at the
char siew or sweeten roasted BBQ pork side by side hanging with the roasted chicken...




And don't miss out the shy-shy
sio bak roasted pork hiding at the back...




Drooling? I was when I was taking photos.

Ladies and gentlemen, let's start your engine, your stomach engine.

While waiting for the dishes to reach the table, let's start the lunch with the "soup of the day". Look at the ingredients, never compromise the quality and taste even the soup is free...



DIY like the chick in the photo, and variety sizes of bowls for you to select, up to your stomach room. So take as much as you can. But don't be greedy, make sure you can finish the amount you take...




Here are the dishes. 2 hungry hands, one on
char siew and the other on sio bak and look at different sizes of the soup bowl...



Closer look. 3 distinct layers of crispy skin, thin layer of fat and flesh...


Same goes to char siew, crispy outer part and juicy inner flesh...


Did you realize there was a boned
char siew underneath the normal char siew? That's actually the signature dish of the stall, the pork rib! Too bad, we reached early and the pork rib was still in making, thus I did not take the photo together with the char siew and roasted chicken, and here is the only photo I have, the pork rib lying on the tray...



We always be
kiasu when go there for lunch. 11:30am must leave the office, and 11:45am must be at the stall to avoid jam and to secure a parking lot and gotta wait for the pork rib to arrive at 12pm. If you go there after 12pm, good luck if you are driving. This was how crowded the small stall was at 12+pm. More crowding when pass 1pm...



You may notice that the stall has no name, it's located just below this inn...


Here's the map. The stall is hiding at the back streets behind Istana Hotel...
