The Porki Society


It's been a while since the boat noodle trend and this little cosy Thai restaurant is not your regular fair. Why do I say so? Because at The Porki Society everything is about pork ! -  Yea, yea most of you have obviously figure out from its name.

Let's focus a bit on the interior of the restaurant itself. My first impression was - primary school days. A little more colorful than what we use to have but the small wooden chairs and tables does share similar traits.

I rather fancy the condiments "glasses" which can be commonly spotted at hawkers stall in Thailand. There's 3 different types of chillies - the flakes, the sauce  and another in paste. Then there's the star seasoning, fish sauce. So inside the menu they will have recommendation on how to elevate the taste of their food using the various seasoning.

So what do we eat here ? Noodles in tiny portion of cause ! Their main menu consist of 2 types of noodles - the famous Thai flat noodle and the all time favourite bee hoon. You can opt for either dry or in broth. Both serve along with single piece of pork meat and a pork ball. What about the portion? For RM 1.90 you will get about 3 mouthful (if you are a big eater probably 2). Being a thoughtful restaurant, they came up with yet another recommendation - if you are normal eater xxx bowl of noodles + 1 sides + 1 drink.

Since I'm here to explore on their menu, I only ordered 2 bowls of Thai flat noodle, one dry and another in broth. Then come the sides, the infamous pork satay, pork chop, braised pork, and a bowl of kang kung. 

The bowl of pork ball, the Thai flat noodle and the kangkung all three share the same broth. It's very flavourful and slightly sweet but definitely not a bad one. The braised pork is one of the recommended dish, for me it didn't make much of an impact when compared across the other dishes of the night.

My favourite dish of the night is definitely the pork chop. Its well seasoned, though fried the meat is still tender and not oily. It goes very well with the dry noodles too. Pork satay comes closely in fact neck to neck with the pork chop as being one of the night's favourite dish too. I loved the sauce that came along with the satay - a combination of shallots, spring onion, chilli flakes and ground peanut. There was something citrusy in the sauce as well because it has a strong sourish taste which I find it rather complementing to the grilled meat. 

Overall the food are pretty decent and appeal more towards stronger palettes. Price for the sides range from RM 5 - RM 18 depending on what you order and the portion. If you are going for something more filling, they do have a set meal menu for about RM 16. Mainly are rice and noodle combo in regular portion served along side some sampler of the various type of side dish. Combination are fixed though so you don't get to pick what sides goes with your main course.

The price of the drinks are somewhat more expensive with a Thai milk tea selling for RM 6.90 but that comes in the size of what looks like a 600ml cup. It's going to be a place where I'll visit once a while especially when I'm craving for the springy noodle and pork chop combo.
