Unfortunately, this dish was disappointing despite the relatively good reviews by food bloggers. In all honesty, I wasn't expecting the same standard as I had in Thailand, but the standard of prep put into this was what put us off.

The rice was not kept warm - the staff alr kept the rice in tupperware in the fridge - we ordered it this at 2.30pm which was still before their closing. This made the rice harder and dryer than it should have been. The pig trotters were also just warm, not kept hot. I'm pretty sure this affects the texture and bite of the meat & fatty skin. I get that its pretty near their closing time, but if they're not prepared to keep the ingredients fresh till then, they might as well not sell the dish anymore.
