Siew Yoke (Roasted Pork)

Posted by mamabok | Amusing/Bizarre,Chinese,Food From Home | Monday 23 February 2009 6:23 pm

See that lil’ piece of siew yoke on the side..??  yes.. that one.  Courtesy of Mr Choo from the Chinese restaurant.  Truth be told .. i’m not a great fan of siew yoke… never wanna touch them .. when i was home.. but after 9 yrs in Canada.. and no siew yoke to eat.. you can imagine my delight when i got a piece of it.  Why he only gave me one piece..  God knows..???!!!??  but beggards can’t be choosers right..??  but there were some duck meat too.. and the mushrooms were home cooked on my own.. and i made a meal outta it.  Told yer.. it’s nice to know the boss of the chinese restaurant .. but his rice.. was too dry .. i used my own rice.

    Visited NS three times and my husband loves the Chinese food served in small out of the way restaurants. I think he enjoys the feeling the sense of pride that Chinese restaurant owners from small towns have about their traditions and culture.

    Mamabok, perhaps we may look you up the next time we are in the East Coast.

    Siew yoke (roast pig) is our favorite but too bad it is so fattening. Thank you for all your work. :)

    roast pork is good, but it is true that it’s a bit fattening.
    lol restaurant rice is never as good as compared to rice from home

    I think Mr Choo gave it to you by accident because he was probably chopping up siew yoke and peking duck and there was one piece he forgot to give to customer.
    Mama Bok, did you find a cantonese version of Looking for a Star.

    I love siew yoke only when its fresh.. as for peking duck.. i think sometimes it has sow taste.. do you know what i am talking about. lol
    or maybe i am weird.

    Mamabok… love the way you wrote in your food blog.. its so entertaining. Cant believe that the siew yoke and siew ngap at NS looks so alike to what we have back in Malaysia.. Wonder whether they taste as good.. BTW.. million thanks for loading the TVB drama series.. you are the best mama….

    I love all BBQ Stuff. That duck looks yummy. I had that for dinner yesterday too :) bought it at T&T supermarket. Not the good as some other places i’ve tried but still pretty good. I would like to try the ones in hong kong someday.

    Thanks for all your great work! Just wanted to let you know how appreciated you are!
