Previously, almost everyday I find myself asking “What am I going to have for lunch today?”. As there are not many choices around my office area, I have now opted to have cereals for my lunch. Yes, very pathetic right. That’s the reason why I will not hesitate to travel further during the weekends for good food.
This time around, we went to Hai Lam Chicken Rice Shop at Jalan Nyonya, Pudu, Kuala Lumpur to find the famous roast pork that many locals had bragged and talked about. Some even claimed that they serves the best roast pork and that their roast pork is so good that they runs out fast.
Hai Lam’s Roast Pork is delicious but not as good as I expected it to be. If the skin is much crunchier, I would have enjoyed it better. Compared to Onn Kee at Jalan Kepong, I find the latter fares better than the former in terms of it’s taste and the texture of the meat.
Hai Lam’s Roasted Chicken on the other hand is much better than their roasted pork. It was so yummy that we polished it off within minutes. I suppose, there is a reason why they named themselves Hai Lam Chicken Rice and not Hai Lam Roasted Pork.
So, if you are unsure which is better, order them both and judge them for yourself. Note that, the roast pork doesn’t comes cheap. A strip of pork costs about RM14.00 and they only start selling the roast pork from 12.30pm until finish.
My advice, if you didn’t manage to try thei roast pork, don’t worry. Their roast chicken is very good as well.
