Ah Hou Roast Meat. One of the Best Crispy Roast Pork Stalls in Ipoh 阿豪烧肉档

If you have been following Johor Kaki for a while, you may notice that I rarely post about siew yok or sio bak (Cantonese roast meat). It's because most of the sio bak I tried tend to be too salty for my liking. Ah Hou's roast meat 阿豪烧肉档 in Ipoh, however, was just nice for me - I love it.

We weren't actually looking for Ah Hou Roast Meat. We were just parking here at the famous 大树脚 Big Tree Foot yong tau foo stall to wait for the rest of our party to arrive.

Fortunately, eagle eyed Aaron spotted the queue forming up the very moment Ah Hou opened for business (at noon). He wasted no time to join the queue. If not for Aaron, I am sure I will miss out on Ah Hou Roast Meat (which strangely for it's popularity with locals is under the social media radar).

The action at the front was frenetic - Ah Hou was doing his best to clear the queue which was constantly at least 20 persons deep.

Ah Hou roasts an entire pig everyday. He sells just one pig a day and calls it a day once it is sold out, which usually takes slightly more than an hour. Pro Tip - Be here before 12 noon to avoid disappointment.

Ah Hou's roast meat is for take away only but I am quite sure we can eat it at the Big Tree Foot yong tau fu place and no one will bother us (though I haven't done that before).

Instead, we took our packet of roast pork to eat with chee cheong fun at the famous Pasir Pinji CCF stall (which will be the story for another post).

The roast pork belly meat was tender, fat was crunchy juicy and the skin was crispy crackly. I love the texture, especially the juicy fat and the quite thick crispy skin.

👉 I can taste moderately salty-savoury flavour on the meat, skin and fat but it was not so intense, so I was also able to taste a bit of natural sweetness. I prefer siew yok this way rather than the more common robustly salty-savoury versions. You will enjoy it too, if you also like your sio bak milder and more natural tasting.
