Admit it; our city is awash in Indian restaurants, from the Chettinad cuisine to North Indian dishes and Banana leaf houses serving favourites of many such as Tandoori chicken, Biryani Rice, Chicken 65, Tikka Chicken and Naan bread, just to name a few. So imagine the raised eyebrows with jaw-dropping when Meat The Porkers - materialised on a piece of KL prime real estate at Publika in late November 2016, boldly proclaiming itself as "The First of its Kind in the World" - A Non-Halal Indian restaurant in Malaysia offering delicious and authentic Mughal cuisine with everyone's favourite "other" white meat - Pork!

First in the world concept - Specialising in Siew Yoke Biryani, Tandoori Pork Ribs and Bacon Cheese Naan using traditional North Indian recipes married with pork as the main ingredients. You see, pork has never been a delicacy in the Indian cooking and hence, never has it before, that pork is used to cook any of the Indian dishes.

Hungry and ready, we were excited to check out the exciting porky menu. While waiting for the highlight of the evening, we munched on some crispy thin snacks of papadum.

Pork Pakora
My journey to porky Indian cuisine, starting off my gastronomic route with this delightful platter of deep fried crunchy Pork Pakora consists of succulent boneless pork deep fried in batter. Deep fried wonder was a hit with everyone at the table. Flavourful, well-marinated and super crispy too, a great start to prepare your tummy for more pork dishes.

Star Of The Night

The star of the night was, of course, the much-awaited ~ Signature dish of Meat The Porkers, Roast Pork Biryani. This royal dish with history from the rustic kitchen of the Mughal Emperors in 1800 was given a porky twist in the 21st century with thanks to the creative taste of the owner, Herukh.  

Roast Pork Biryani a.k.a Siew Yoke Biryani
Under the flagship of Fierce Curry House's Hyderabadi Dum Biryani, this Siew Yoke Biryani was an experience to relish and remember. Herukh's love affair with the roast pork is clearly evident in every spoon of the Roast Pork Biryani a.k.a Siew Yoke Biryani made with the finest long grain basmati rice and succulent roast pork belly cubes. Served garnished with coriander leaves, and topped with the with gravy, raita and papadum.

The traditional method of sealing the pot with a "Purdah" which is a simple dough made of water and flour enhance the slow-cooking process, thus releases maximum flavour and aroma to this wonderful dish. 

I believe Herukh has perfected his recipe through many trials and errors, and this amazingly delicious pork biryani rice is an explosion of flavours, making the fame roast pork an equal star of the spread. Highly recommended if Siew Yoke is your fave! 🐷🐷🐷    

Tandoori Pork Ribs

Tandoori Pork Ribs
Moving on next, another winner in its own right ~ Tandoori Pork Ribs. Oink-oink, to all the pork ribs lovers out there especially those who loves the Tandoori style of cooking, you definitely need to give the pork ribs a try. The full rack of the pork ribs marinated in yoghurt, freshly ground spices grilled to perfection.

Tandoori Pork Ribs
The tenderness of the grilled pork ribs goes well with either choice of condiments available, namely freshly made Pol Sambal, Tamarind BBQ sauce, and mint chutney. The culinary experience is not complete without these condiments that add to the array of colours on the dish and another dimension of flavours.

In fact, my favourite condiment is the Tamarind BBQ sauce, and I have to say that it really get our appetites going with their signature dishes here.The food here certainly checked the box for guilty pleasures. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰  

 Bacon Cheese Naan

Next, on the tasting list, there is the Bacon Cheese Naan to check out. Simply crazy and addictive, I guess only a bacon-lover can come out with such a wonderful idea, that is to incorporate the tasty bacon and cheese into the simple naan bread.
   
 Bacon Cheese Naan
The wafting aroma of the bacon from the freshly baked naan coming from the traditional earthen oven whets the appetite. Cooked upon order, the bacon cheese naan is crisp on the outside with a bubble-like texture that makes it soft with a distinctive taste. For my hubby, who is a naan lover, was in seventh heaven that night, enjoying the last piece of naan in his gastronomy world.

Another highlight was the Butter Pork, which is a famous Punjabi dish. Now perfected into a pork dish 🐷🐷🐷 which is Pork Tikka in a creamy tomato and butter gravy flavoured with dry fenugreek leaves.
