Another Mom’s Favorite: Pork Leg Vinegar

My elder brother introduced me to Mom’s All Taste Restaurant (Ga Fan Nguk in Cantonese) few months ago. My earlier post is here. Now come to think of it, perhaps there is no English name to this restaurant ..

 

‘Ga fan nguk’

 

Today, I revisited this restaurant for dinner, as mom wanted to eat pork leg vinegar (猪脚醋). This dish is one of her favorite, and not all restaurants serve this dish. This restaurant serves hometown delights, ala mom’s taste, and pork leg vinegar is part of their menu.

 

Brisk business

 

The restaurants was enjoying brisk business, packed with Chinese diners.

My mom’s choice of menu today:

 

A simple home-cooking style meal


Pork leg vinegar, Bean curd top with deep fried shallot and Iceburg lettuce in oyster sauce.

 

Four Kind of Herbal Soup

 

Herby goodness

 

As for me, the Chinese-in-me ordered Four Kind of Herbal Soup.

We paid RM 30 for a meal of 2.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
