Meat The Porkers @ Solaris Dutamas

Babiryani? Trust the folks of Fierce Curry House to come up with a new theme as playfully irresistible as this, propelling their brand of Indian fare to non-halal heights with siew yoke biryani & other unconventionally hog-loving riffs on cherished classics.

Meat The Porkers proudly professes to be the home of siew yoke biryani - true enough, this won't be a recipe that's easily found at eateries: Fierce's flagship Hyderabadi Dum biryani, with tender slices of roast pork belly buried in the warm rice, showered with crispy crackling, served with raita & gravies (RM28++). The result: A sensible balance of grains & meat that remains faithful to the enjoyable essence of biryani while conveying an effective twist to this familiar carb-loading experience.

This is the sort of witty, buzz-worthy menu that makes for appointment dining - tandoori pork ribs (RM48++), tikka butter pork (RM28++), pork pakora (RM20++) & bacon cheese naan (RM15++), all underscoring the fine understanding of clean, perceptively executed flavours that's second nature to the experienced hands here. Bonus points for the Malibu Mango Lassi, a rum-based cocktail that's a satisfactory signature order (RM25++). Prices are far from cheap - our meal for two cost nearly RM200 - but the quality of the food is unimpeachable. Expect to hear more about Meat The Porkers in the months to come.

  1. Meet the Fokkers was the first thing that came to mind, of course...hehe :) A non-halal version of biryani is a welcome change...but prices are certainly more upscale. I see you captured a pic of the boss (I recognise him from Food Wars Asia, the BLR showdown)! ;)

    1. Contact.ewew: heh, yeah, i think they probably got their initial inspiration for the name from that movie ;) i'm actually bad at recognising who's who, but yes, some of the team members of the restaurant are in the pics above! :D

  2. I prefer chicken or beef or lamb curry, will have pork curry sometimes but I feel it pales in comparison. I sure would love to try this though - I love bryani. Nice play with the name, Meet the Fockers...

    1. Suituapui: yeah, the flavour of pork might not be as punchy or robust as beef and lamb, but i guess different meats work well in different combinations. i like biryani too, and it's nice to see new variations to tease our taste buds :)

  4. Oh wow! But...when it comes to curry, my preference is still mutton.

    1. Phong Hong: ooo, I'm actually not a major fan of mutton, so I'd pick almost any other meat over that ;)

  6. I doubt the skin of the siew yoke still can remain its crispiness after being buried with rice. o.O"

    1. Choi Yen: ooo, what happens is that they serve the crackling on a separate dish and you can sprinkle it on the biryani before eating :)

  7. The food was always great, I think they just updated their menu and it's off the hook. Who would expect delicious pizza at such big events. Not me, but you can get some of the best pizza there. The best San Francisco venues in this area.
