Sun Yeong Wai (Roast Duck, Char Siew, Roast Pork) @ Ipoh JayaMay 4, 2008 | 8,730 views
This restaurant has another branch in Medan Ipoh Baru, but this outlet serves the BETTER roasted pork. Don’t ask why, cz I have absolutely no idea. (Fact corrected thanks to Janice, from Sun Yeong Wai)
You can opt for personal serving, meaning some meat (roast chicken/duck/char siew/siu yoke) on rice, plus any vegetables of your choice ala Economy Rice, OR you can ask them to chop up some meats to be shared, plus some vegetable dishes (humans ARE omnivores) aka family-style luncheon/dinner.
We were persuaded by the lady boss to take their roasted ducks, as they are supposed to be DA BOMB! Or something along the line. But I rejected, as ducks cannot satiate my porky lust. Muahaha …..
So we ordered a plate each of Char Siew (BBQ Pork) and Siu Yoke (Roasted Pork), to be shared. Needless to say, the Siu Yoke was amazingly crispy at the skins, and the meat/fat ratio is just right (for me, at least). I can finish this plate on my own, if not for the existence of an outsider (LPN). Hehe! The Char Siew was one of the better ones in Ipoh, but could not hold a candle to FSF’s version, so let’s not compare. But to give credits where they’re due, the meat is tender, sweet, not chewy, and goes really well with the chilli sauce, and their fragrant oil rice.
The Siu Yoke may look fat, but they really aren’t. Paired with the rice, they are indeed a match made in heaven. 😉 Oh, to counter the excessive protein intake, we ordered a plate of vegetables (if pumpkins can be considered one). Nothing special, but got the job done. Cooked until soft, the sweet pumpkins were tasty when paired with dried shrimps.
Total damage was RM28 for 3 person, including rice and drinks. They have a variety of herbal teas freshly made everyday. I had the watercress with dates, which was cooling and refreshing, while I could not remember what Tall Gal and LPN had. Haha … Side effect of pork overdose?
