Siew Yoke (Roast Pork Belly) @ You Kee XO Restaurant in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah

Roast pork that my heart doctor wish I never knew about

It is almost taken for granted that when one goes to You Kee XO Restaurant, one would always order their famous XO roast duck. The popularity of its XO roast duck has somehow over-shadowed their other excellent dishes served.

You Kee's 3 treasures - siew yoke, XO roast duck and char siew

Why do I say so? If you have tasted You Kee’s siew yoke, you would agree with me totally! This is no ordinary siew yoke, where it comes with the skin, a layer of fat and a third layer of lean meat.

This siew yoke has 2 layers of fat and 2 layers of lean meat, all neatly layered underneath a thin crisp covering of pork skin.

Do not under estimate the crispy-ness of such a small piece of pork skin - it provides just the right amount of crunchy-ness for the other 4 layers of fat and lean meat of which it is attached to!

Each layer of fat is translucent - which in my opinion is the guarantee of juicy-ness and flavour.

Each layer of lean meat is tender yet firm and not too salty.

Altogether this multilayer treat led me to throw cholesterol consciousness to the wind. I ate every piece with a blissful smile! Pray my doctor doesn’t read this – she will be mighty upset with me but I will not be surprised if she goes to try the siew yoke herself☻

  1. how come we never try the flattened roast duck? that looks yummy too!


I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
