10 Classic Porky Favourites at Xin Cuisine @ The Concorde, Kuala Lumpur

One of my favourite Chinese restaurants in the city – Xin Cuisine at The Concorde Kuala Lumpur has just launched more porky dishes in their menu.  Already a firm favourite among lovers of classic Chinese dishes, Xin Cuisine has now endeared itself deeper in their hearts with new delicious pork dishes since April.

When their Chinese Chef Wong Pak Seng teams up with Barbecue Chef Kou Kim Hai, you can expect a repertoire of dishes that are bound to delight.  Combining their expertise, they have come up with 10 superb pork dishes which are available for both lunch and dinner.

Nourishing and tummy-warming Chicken Herbal Soup

On their menu, I spotted items like Pork Knuckles Monggolian style, Braised Pork Belly with Preserved Vegetables, Spareribs in Wine Sauce, BBQ Crispy Suckling Pig Hong Kong style and many more.  These are all mainly classic home-cooked dishes.  Please be warned that most of these dishes call for repeated bowls of white rice!

Wok-fried Pork Belly with Dried Chillies

In a recent review, after a delicious bowl of double-boiled Herbal Chicken Soup, our table was quickly laden with Slow-cooked Pork Tendon with Garlic, Wok-fried Pork Belly with Dried Chillies and Deep-fried Beancurd with Minced Meat.  To prove a point, bowls of white rice had to be ordered as these porky dishes simply screamed for that!  The glistening gelatinous pork tendons were scrumptious –well infused with the garlicky aromas and tasty braising sauce.  The pieces of chunky pork belly had a bit of heat from the dried chillies and that merely teased our appetite for more.

The BBQ Crispy Suckling Pig took centre stage when it was served.  The thin golden skin was incredibly crunchy and there was hardly any fatty layer beneath.  We ate the crispy skin sandwiched inside flat fluffy “paus”, enhancing the flavours by dabbing some hoi sin sauce onto the pau.

The chefs in Xin Cuisine do a mean Hokkien Mee.  There were generous sprinklings of fried fatty bits (“chee yau char”) on the dark slurpy strands of Hokkien Mee… so it wasn’t surprising that the plate of Hokkien Mee was completely wiped off by my fellow diners.

Hokkien Mee, anyone?

Always a good idea to have a vegetables dish – how about having them stir-fried with Crabmeat and Salted Egg?
