There are quite a number of restaurant that features pork as its key ingredients; but non so far as to a have restaurant that bred it’s own pig i.e. from farm to table. +BestRestaurant ToEat
was invited to this special review at The Pork Place, No 31, IOI Boulevard, Jalan Kenari 7, Bandar Puchong Jaya, 47100 Puchong, Selangor, Malaysia; where the pork that are served comes from their very own locally bred farm in Johor.
The Pork Place @Puchong is unlike any other restaurant where you can also buy fresh pork meat too, there is a air conditioned, clean and hygienic counter that customers can walk in and buy their favourite parts of pork meat. Their brand of pork is called SanBanto which is in the business of supplying the highest quality of pork to some of the restaurants and supermarkets in Malaysia for the past 13 years.
Their pork farm has received ISO certification to ensure top quality produce and production process. Sanbanto has also successfully bred a special Black pig called “Hei Zhu” which has its origin from the heritage Berkshire breed from English county. The result is the quality of marbled leaner meat and firmer flesh that suit the taste and cooking style of Malaysian market.
We started our review with 2 salad which is the Pork Belly Salad (RM18.90); the pork belly strips are deep fried and served with fresh seasoned local and imported fresh green vegetable with a french dressings.
The Pork Belly has a crisp and crunchy feel while the sweet lychee was a nice mixture to balance off with the pork belly.
Next, we had the Pork Bacon Salad (RM21.00) which is served with fresh Romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, olives topped with cheddar cheese and bacon bits served with our special house made orange dressings.
Followed by the special Hei Zhu meat dishes, which is only available for weekend; starting with the Twirls of Landrace-Duroc (RM22.80) also known as (AKA) Pig in Blanket which is meaty pork wrapped in Bacon and coated with a special in-house made sauce on a bed of garden salad.
the next “Hei Zhu” special was the Loin Steaks (RM50.00); a thin and succulent steaks which is grilled and served with onion rings and potatoes with wings.
The problem with Loin Steaks is, the meat tends to be a little harder after it is grilled, but if you add in the sauce it covers some of this shortcoming.
This is then followed by the Collar Steak (RM68.00) which is a special cut and cooked with a rich bone stock and served with dauphinoise potatoes. The meat was braised until a soft and smooth texture.
The last dish from the “Hei Zhu” weekend menu is the Best Of Bellies (RM65.00) – A juicy chunks of pork belly served with mashed potatoes and mushrooms.
This dish is only revered by those that loves the really pork fats as this pork belly is literally covered with more than 90% pure juicy fats.
After that we were served some speciality dishes from the standard menu, which is the Crispy Skin Pork Knuckle; the Pork Knuckles is oven roasted to ensure a moist, tender and juicy meat on the inside and a crisp, crunchy skin on the outside.
The Pork Knuckles is served with mashed potatoes and shredded cabbage with a special concocted mustard sauce at the side. The meat of the knuckles was very tender and does not have any porky smell making it a delight to be eaten especially for me who just loves Pork Knuckles.
and the last dish for the review was the Barbecue Ribs; which is a special cut of ribs belly meat which is marinated with an in-house Barbecue sauce.
The ribs was very tender, succulent and it easily cut off without putting too much pressure while cutting. The cooking process takes many steps of coating with the barbecue sauce, until it is charred sufficiently leaving a strong aroma of the grill and the taste of flavourful sauce. It is served on a bed of mashed potatoes and salad.
If you just love everything pork or just love to eat Pork; the Pork Place @Puchong is sure the place to be whether you want to dine in or buying some of the premium pork for home cooking.
