Suckling Pig @ Pekin Sutera JB 五福北京城

Pekin-Sutera-JB-五福北京城

Pekin restaurants in Johor Bahru JB really don't need any introduction. Pekin is known for quality and consistency though its pricing is a little premium. JB families rely on Pekin to deliver on special occasions like weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and other major celebrations.

Other than banquets, Pekin restaurant is also popular for regular lunch and dinners. We go to Pekin restaurants occasionally for their signature dishes, one at a time.

Live seafood. We will try them all, in time, one dish at a time 😃

Today, we were at the Pekin outlet at Sutera Mall for their suckling pig which is a staple at Chinese banquets. Pekin have roast suckling pig on the regular menu, so walk in customers can have this without pre-ordering.

We had half a Hong Kong style roasted suckling pig 港式光面猪 to share (price RM108++). The piglet was spread out flat and charcoal grilled to golden brown outside with a bit of char.

The golden brown skin is crispy and shatters to the bite like a toasted biscuit. The thin layer of baby fat is soft and the flesh is firmer, though still tender and moist.

There is a mild savouriness from the marinate brushed on the skin and meat. The fat has a subtle sweetness. There was also a discernible (but, not overwhelming) porky gaminess from the fat.

The hor fan 河粉 (price RM10++) was aromatic and the kway teow noodles had a slight toasty flavour from good wok hei. The thick smooth sauce was mildly savoury sweet. The dish was let down a little by averagely fresh prawns.

Foie Gras De Fried Rice 鵝肝帶子炒飯 (price RM20 per standard rice bow). The savouriness from goose liver and cubed scallops was well balanced with sweetness from the tender nutty rice. It's a nice occasional indulgence.

Fried Organic 青龍菜 (price RM28++), soft limp crunchy greens in a savoury sweet garlicky sauce.

  1. Used to go there for meals. However the food taste is not consistent. There may have been quite a few different chefs.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
