The Wok @ Puchong

 Not a bad choice for Penang Nyonya and hawker food in the Klang Valley.

Exceptionally meaty, enjoyably savory lor bak, served with tau kua.

Jiu hu char, with lettuce wrappings. Worthwhile for whetting the appetite.

Inchi kabin, flavorful spiced chicken, fantastically crunchy outside, fabulously juicy within.

Here comes the pork: tau u bak, as sinfully sensational as we like it.

Cincaluk pork. Could be something we'd find in my hometown of Malacca too.

Hong bak stewed pork belly. Good, though maybe not as great as babi pongteh.

Prawn fritters, well-executed enough, though not the star of this meal.

Can't call it a Penang feast without char kuey teow. Would have loved more cockles in this.

The Wok features a beautiful interior, perhaps the most ornate of any eatery in Puchong.

    1. Frozeh: thanks for the advice. Sounds like the quality control might not be 100 percent satisfactory yet. But hopefully they'll take note if you mentioned it to them and make improvements =)
