Boon Signature Roast Pork, Damansara Jaya

    Boon Signature Roast Pork, Damansara Jaya was being mentioned to us numerous time. Curiosity got the better of us so we dropped by for a weekend lunch session.
    Roast Pork (RM 11, small)

    Since roast pork is the pièce de résistance here, we ordered a separate portion, not wanting to overshadow the roast pork with any rice/noodles with gravy. You can even purchase a 1 KG slab for RM 110 here.

    So was the roast pork good?

    I would say that it’s good but definitely not the best in KL. It is very different from the chinese siew yuk that we are familiar with. The keropok like skin reminds me of pork rinds from Indonesia or Thailand. Using a herb marinate, the seasoning is more to the western style of preparation, hence the lack of five spice flavours. Good fats to lean meat ratio too. While I do enjoy the thick pork crackling, certain parts get too hard and sometimes too sticky – you know the feeling where it gets stuck all over your teeth?
    HK Style Wantan Noodles with Char Siew (RM 9.90)

    We really enjoyed the thin and springy HK style wantan noodles though. The char siew was slightly charred, shiny and caramelised on the outside, tender and juicy inside.
    Signature Dry Curry Wantan Noodle with Char Siew (RM 9.90)

    The dry curry topping was good too – great flavour, thick and creamy texture. And this statement is coming from an Ipoh girl.

    You have to try Boon Signature Recipe yourself to decide if their style of siew yoke is to your likings or not.
