Last Saturday, Boolicious, Lyrical Lemongrass, WMW and myself got-together for a food crawl…destination: Klang. Our ulterior aim was the I-Po Roasted Duck which I have heard wmw raved so much about. All of us met in Glenmarie, in front of Meng Kee Char Siu (Roasted Pork)..ohh..it was such an irresistible temptation to have a dose of char siu before heading to Klang but at the same time, we wouldn’t want to spoil our appetite for the duck.
Meeting Boo and Lyrical Lemongrass was really exciting for me, since they are the 2nd and 3rd blogger I met so far…and certainly more to come this Friday at the Floggers Gathering. Oh my, after all the chit chat and laughing, I was certainly very very hungry when we reached I-Po and saw all the luscious glowy shiny roast duck hanging side by side at the back kitchen. Of course, all of us took out our cameras almost instantly to snap snap snap. Even took a picture of the trade secret in making the duck skin so crispy and upon request, it would not be posted up.
Since most of us skipped breakfast, we ordered one whole duck as well as a bowl of sour veggie to share. The duck was very good indeed, skin was crispy meanwhile the meat was still juicy. Although the duck are poured with hot oil before being served (that explains the crispy skin) the duck was not oily at all. The dipping sauce was good too. I packed 1/2 a duck for Hubby to try and he loved it too and said that he could easily finish a duck by himself.
The Sour Veggie was sour and spicy, after first bite, my tongue and lip was slightly numb but that didn’t stop me from having more. Definately a great combination to go with the roast duck.
Since we were already in Klang, we were so keen to try the famous Tong Yuen (Sweetened Glutinous Rice Ball) in Bukit Tinggi but no one seems to know the address. Boo called Citygal for direction and apparently they only open at night. Sigh…anyway, we still head to Bukit Tinggi to search for the shop and somehow we ended up at Leo’s for Gelatos. I never heard of Leo's before but apparently they have outlets in USJ, Sri Petaling and Carrefour Kepong. We were told that all the ingredients for the Gelato are imported from Italy and made in their factory in Sg Besi. I did a quick search and Leo's and found this.
Their menu is quite interesting especially the beverages section. And so, each of us ordered a colourful drink, so that we could take some nice picture of it.
Time to go home....we headed back to Glenmarie to drop off Boo and Lemongrass…and oh no, the temptation to have Char Siu at Meng Kee had won us over this time. We ordered a strip of char siu to share. According to Boo, the Char Siu here is not as sweet as their KL outlet near Jalan Alor. Although wmw commented the meat we had that day was a little bit hard, I find it very good standard as compared to many char siu shop and since it was AGES since I last went to their outlet in KL, certainly I couldn’t even have a benchmark to compare. Anyway, still a good plate of char siu for me, especially with great companies.
