Roasted pork (siew yoke/ sio bak/ 烧肉) ranks as one of my favourite dishes and I’ll go all out to try a good version of it. Finally made my way down to Pudu to try this legendary place.

Wong Mei Kee is touted as one of the best roasted pork places in KL. It’s colloquially known as Datuk roasted pork as its owner has been conferred a Datukship. Datuk Wong is the man behind the show where he does almost everything himself from marinating to roasting to chopping the meat. Diners wait patiently for the food to be served at 12.30pm.

I was thoroughly impressed by the roasted pork (RM 17/ person). It was roasted in charcoal. The crackling was spectacularly crispy and there was a good fat to meat ratio. It was amazing how the meat remained so tender, flavourful and moist. Servings were rather generous as the roasted pork was cut into thick chunks. I chowed down the whole plate with much delight.

How do you like your char siew? Lean or fatty?

KL’s char siew is typically fatty, heavily caramelised that’s gives it a sweet and burnt taste. It’s blacker than what one would find in Singapore as a result.

Finally managed to try the legendary Oversea char siew after so many trips to KL. Using pork belly, the meat to fat ratio was perfect, making the char siew soft and fatty. The edges were nicely caramelised and the sweet, sticky sauce was the winning factor for me. Every bite was delectable and the char siew nicely melts in your mouth.

I was largely impressed by this and could have the entire plate by myself. Now I know why Malaysians and Singaporeans adore their char siew so much.

Plan a hot, hot meal with your buds at this newbie in Jaya One – expect excellent service, fresh meats and MSG-free soups with free refills! Have Three Soups (RM42) which you can choose from the four flavours available – mushroom, pork bone, spicy and tomato. Ingredients wise, specialities here comprise of the Ring Roll (RM12), Pork Belly (RM22), Hong Kong Beef Ball (RM16) and the Handmade Mee (RM10). Ps. They're open till 1am, so file this spot away for late-night eats!

Rainy days call for soup, and the house-favourite fish ball soup did not disappoint. A bit salty too, but the soup is super flavourful from the onions, garlic and spring onions. Quite generous with the fish balls and fish paste too.

Deep-fried kailan is served on top of more kailan – liked this a lot! Cooked in your usual anchovy and garlic sauce.

Tho a bit salty this chicken dish is call kinds of yummy. Sauce was thick, boasting sweet and spicy flavours – perfect for pouring all over your white rice. They also have this in medium and large options.

Come for a scrumptious seafood feast that's guaranteed to put a smile on everyone's face. The Crabs (from RM88 per kg) are a must-try, with the Kam Heong and Butter being the crowd-favourite styles. Don't forget an order of Fried Mantao (RM4) with this to mop up all the sauce! Other yummy plates to share are the Steamed Talapia (from RM40) and the Clams In Superior Soup (from RM20). Pro tip: Order some Satay (from RM1.50) from the stall at the entrance to snack on before the main event.

You may be familiar with this Punjabi restaurant's fiery fare in SS15, but you'll be glad to know they now also have a spot in TTDI! The menu ranges from fragrant briyani to made-to-order bread to pair with delicious curries. Signatures include the Palak Paneer (RM19.90), Mixed Veg (RM14.90), Mutton Curry (RM24.90) and Masala Chicken (RM20.90). Match those with the Veg Dum Briyani (RM13.90) or the fluffy Chapati (RM2).

Celebrate occasions with the folks over satisfying burgers and pizzas — both come with delicious vegetarian options too. On burgers, Burppler Farah Aziz highly recommends the Swiss Mushroom (RM28) featuring a beef patty topped with Swiss cheese, deep-fried pickled mushroom and garlic parsley aioli. You can also choose to have it with a chicken or falafel patty. Pizza-wise, Burppler Carmen Chan highlights the tomato-based Frutti De Mare (RM35) for seafood lovers and the white sauce-based Aloha (RM35) for the classic chicken and pineapple combo.

Swing by this family-run restaurant deep in Kota Damansara for a lovely Nyonya meal. Burppler Thokoh Makan sings high praises of the grub, especially the Ikan Gulai Tumis (from RM26) — fresh fish slices in a fragrant tamarind-based sauce. Also good to share are the Yum Yum Pandan Chicken (RM4.80 per piece), Yum Yum Brinjal (RM12) and the Yum Yum Egg (RM13). They also have two off-menu desserts, Cendol (from RM5) and Tau Foo Fa (from RM5) that are the perfect sweet endings to a flavourful meal.
