When both gNOMes received the invitation to The Porki Society’s soft launch, we thought we were in for a porcine feast. Pork ribs, pork cutlet, you-name-it-we-thought-we-are-going-to-feast-on-it. Little did we know we were wrong!
The invites came with a rather concise description on the menu which we are going to be served :
2 Dry Vermicelli & Flat Noodles + 2 Soup Vermicelli & Flat Noodles + Moo Ping Porki BBQ + Moo Tod Porki BBQ +
Moo Tun Signature Marinated Pork + Moo Luak Chim Signature Aroma Pork +
Luk Chin Moo Pork Ball with Soup + Cap Moo Pork Rinds + Takoh
EH. ARE WE GOING TO FEAST ON ROUNDS AND ROUNDS OF BOAT NOODLES? 😀
The Porki Society opened its doors to the media on the 18th and 19th of Oct for their soft launch. Rest be assured, the public can feast on bowls after bowls of boat noodles at The Porki Society starting the 22nd of October!
We loved how this place looks like. Colorful tables and stools, it has a rather old school feel to it. One could think they are currently dining in Boat Noodles.
Upon inspection of the menu, the comparisons with Boat Noodles continues. They serve dry and soup, flat rice noodles and vermicelli. Aside from that, there is also a selection of Thai delights.
The old school feel even extends to their cups and carbonated beverages!
[L] Rice Noodles Dry; [R] Rice Noodles Soup [RM1.90 per bowl]
[L] Vermicelli Dry; [R] Vermicelli Soup [RM1.90 per bowl]
Among all of them, we would say that the soup was still the one of preference. The dry was slightly a little too dry for Malaysian tastebuds. The broth/sauce was just nice and wasn’t too salty or spicy. Although, one is able to add chili flakes (which are spicy!) and sauces according to the individual preferences.
Moo Ping Porki BBQ [RM4.90 for 2 skewers]
This was a nicely-marinated BBQ side dish. Sure. the presentation could use some work, but trust us it tastes better than it looks. Dipped with their special spicy and savory sauce, this is a formidable snack!
Moo Tod Porki [RM3.90]
Looking every bit like siew yuk, this is another nice dish of porky fragrance. One thing that they really excel at is their pork. If anything else lets you down, it will definitely not be in their cuts of pork.
Luk Chin Moo Pork Ball with Soup [RM3.90]
When this came to us they were already short on supplies since it had been a full day of feasting, hence the slightly “miserable” look. Overall the soup was mild and alright.
Moo Tun Signature Marinated Pork [RM4.90]
The best way to describe this would be to call it “wet rendang”. This was definitely a good one, however as it was a little on the salty side, eating it together with a bowl of rice would’ve been perfect. Or eat it together with your boat noodles, you won’t be disappointed by this dish 😉
Moo Luak Chim Signature Aroma Pork [RM3.90]
This side actually tasted pretty Chinese. One would suspect that this could be found on a Chinese family’s table during lunch or dinner. The broth was fragrant and the pork, tender. Yums! Very comforting, and delectable.
Takoh [RM2.90 for 2 pieces]
Takoh, a traditional Thai coconut cream jelly dessert wrapped in banana leaf is also found at The Porki Society. Make sure you end your meal with this, which is gNOMe 2’s favourite. Takoh was fragrant, thanks to the coconut milk, refreshing, and palatable with the correct level of sweetness.
And we definitely went home with a big smile plastered on our faces. 😉
Verdict : Overall this would be a Boat Noodle shop for those who crave some pork in it, of course with a little more of the side dishes and the decor adding to the whole traditional recipe feel. Definitely one to look out for should one stop by Seapark. True to their name, they do well in terms of porkiness. All porky goodness reasonably priced below RM5. We will definitely be back for more! 😀
