Poh Yak Pork Meatballs

I went to visit J's newly-completed house the other day. It's located at the Moyan area, which was to me, quite a distance away .... but the house itself and its surroundings looked pretty good. On the way back, we stopped at the Batu Kawa old bazaar for lunch ... and of course, what better thing to eat here than the famous pork meatballs.

We at at Poh Yak, reputed to be the oldest in the business, having sold pork meatballs since before the Japanese occupation during World War 2 (Ref: Borneo Talk, Vol.19, p.11). We had noodles with a bowl of pork meatballs.

 Noodles, dry-tossed in aromatic oils
Well-cooked, springy, fragrant. Very tasty.

Pork meatball soup 
Soup was sweet, umami; the meatballs succulent, bouncy, and had a homemade feel to it. :))

It's my first time eating here, and I do quite like it. :))


  1. Yes. The famous pork meatball noodle there. But sometimes a lot of people and to wait so long.

  2. I went quite late, about 1.30 p.m., so there weren't any customers there already! So it wasn't too long to wait. :))
