Peel Road - BBQ Pork and Braised Pork Knuckle

 It's 1:30pm and the food was disappearing fast. Opens at 11:00am until sold out.

One of the coolest CNY, weather-wise. Mr. Sun did come back with vengeance on certain days. But then it was pleasant year. But I must sympathatise with my friends in Segamat and other areas affected by the deluge of rainwater, it must be a demoralizing CNY. Speaking with a friend, he told me that they were better prepared than the last big one in 2006 and 2007. To him it was an inconvenience. The triumph of the spirit.

And surprise, surprise a sedentary drive home for those moving out of KL on Tuesday and Wednesday. But Saturday and Sunday were quite bad esp Sunday. Those who left after 1030am or 11am from Penang were in for a horrid 12hours drive where one can complete the journey in 3 1/2 hours during normal days. I left for Penang at 1015am Sunday and was safely home at 415pm. I was fortunate to have push for a slightly early drive home.

About 2 weeks ago I was at Peel Road on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Spoilt for choice - they have YTF and a host of other food. Peel Road is known for its car workshops and the food stalls. Everyone of them merits our customs as they have proven themselves over time and deserve the accolades especially when serving the discerning local residents for so long.

We ate at a decrepit stalls. It was packed to the brim and we were sitting at the worse possible place available. The sun was shinning.But the food was great!

Part of the food chain in Peel Road. Excellent Tofu Far to start the meal!
Simple condiment and a bowl of soup to accompany out meal.
Melt in the mouth Char Siew (BBQ Pork). Well caramelized 3-layer goodness.
Another melt in the mouth dish. Braised One Bone Trotter.. Gelatinous skin and super soft and velvety layer pork. Should I say suck-it-in goodness.
Healthier favourite and crowd-pleaser. Roast chicken. Cannot get it wrong order.
And for those spicy food lover. This sweet and sour sauced Tilapia has well-textured and firm meat. A definite recommended order.
The aftermath! A total wipe out.
Peel Road.

Sadly the stall close down due to road construction. Any idea where they move to?
