Barbecue Pork Rice

Appetising bowl of BBQ pork rice
I simply loved this rice dish. One can actually salivate or drools over just by looking at this appetising bowl of BBQ pork served with sunny side up egg accompanied with some boiled siew pak choy. Chef's choice of using the pork belly for this dish was excellent.
That was a melt-in-the-mouth experience as I slowly savours each piece of the BBQ meat. Moist & aromatic flavour oozing in my mouth, wonderful combination texture of a nice layer of meat with a nice layer of fat, it's roasted close to perfection. Can't believe this as I'm never a fan of 'fatty cha siew' but honestly, this is some of the best-cooked BBQ meat I‘ve ever had.
BBQ Pork with Noodles is of course a very special dish worth mentioning for it is very pleasing to the palate. The BBQ pork with tender and juicy interior that was oozing with flavour. The accompanying sauce is sweet and tasty, bringing out the best in the wantan noodles too. It was suffice to say that bowls are licked clean that night.
Note the generous serving of the BBQ Pork, thickly sliced mouthwatering BBQ belly pork served with dry version of the wantan noodles.
The ingredient like the Special Wantan Noodles used in this dish is imported to preserve the authenticity of taste according to the owner, Mr. Weng Kham himself. I especially enjoy the wantan noodles that is springy, crunchy & extremely fine, very different from the usual local ones we used to eat at the shops. Because of this, it gets a thumbs up from me. Maybe the next time I come by this place, I'll not hesitate to order a 'ma-meen' or double servings of this awesome noodles again.
Well, here's two thumbs up too for Mr.Weng Kham himself, looking smart & trendy in OpenRicers' Brand new Apron] for his passion in eating & serving the juicy, tender & full of flavour roast meat to his patrons.
Well sometimes looks can be quite deceiving in some instant as in this particular noodles dish. From the appearance, the serving of the minced pork was extremely generous & looks delightfully savoury.
The noodles were just right to my liking as any hakka noodles should be. Light & springy cooked till ala-dante just like the pasta does. But, I'm sorry to say that the chef might have gone overboard with the seasoning as it's quite salty. Apart from that, except for the extreme saltiness, I find the noodles quite palatable.
This was one of the dishes which I can finish due to too much soya or seasoning added.

The Soup of the Day I have for that day is the Lotus Root with Arrowroot Soup or in Cantonese 'Lean Ngau Fun Kot' soup.It's highly nutritious, known to dispel heat and toxics,strengthen body and also increase appetite. I have to give my two thumbs up for this soup as it's tasty, hearty and flavourful.
Note the chunky piece of lean meat, lotus, arrowroots, nuts & dates as essential ingredients to making an authentic soup. I couldn’t resist from ordering a second & third serving as it's very tasty and addictive, too! The owner, Mr.Weng Kham confirms that a different soup is boil & served every day with unlimited serving ...
The Roast House's Ipoh Hor Fun wasn't up to the mark according to my standards although it's served with lots of fresh shrimps, chicken slices, and spring onions. The 2 most important criteria to meet in making a good hor fun is the soup base & the type of noodles used. Firstly, the soup lacks in the prawn & chicken taste resulting it to become quite tasteless.
On top of that, the noodles should be especially smooth, fine and slippery hor fun, but they may have use another type of kuey teow commonly used for soup or fried version (char kway teow) that is broader, thicker and not as smooth as the original hor fun.
Note the unusually thick and broad looking kuey teow in this bowl of soup.
Last but not least, if you're not choosy or 'cerewet' foodie like me (I always have a benchmark of all the food in my list) ... feel free to give this humble noodles a try!
