Sek Yuen is a must-visit venue in Kuala Lumpur. The wood-fired wok is a defining feature but the food that was brought to our table was simply exemplary!
The first dish of taro with pork cooked with fermented bean curd was a clever blending of protein with vegetable where the pork slices combined beautifully with taro slices to provide an harmonious bite that combined the savoury taste of the pork with the starchy counterfoil of the taro.
But this was but an opening movement to the main production. We were soon presented with the main protagonist of a stuffed pig's trotter that was one of the best dishes that we have tried anywhere in the world!!
It was stunning. The four of us gorged on the contents until it had disappeared! A lovely, lovely dish!
One of the other dishes that you must try here is the Yee Sang which is a raw fish salad that traces its origins back to fishing communities on the coast of China.
We also like the rice here. It is served in small metal bowls in which it has been steamed.
