Leave your diet at the door: the pork dishes at Meat the Porkers at Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika) – the first iconic pork briyani restaurant- are some of the most unashamedly porky, calorific bad boys in this neighbourhood, and even in the whole of Asia. Don’t feel guilty with those tender bites of juicy pork meats in their authentically spiced Pakistan flavours for they are one of the kind that is a must for pork lovers.
The pages on the menu with plenty of dishes can be intimidating to those who is not familiar with the dishes but Meat the Porkers cleverly compiled a single page to recommend the best selling and the must try. The kitchen obviously excels in biryani rice so the Siew Yoke Biryani (RM 28) is very highly recommended especially when they cleverly put away only the skin from the roasted pork belly and lets the rest of the belly layers sink inside the moist and fragrant basmati rice.
Naan is outstanding if not over burnt and bacon makes a surprise appearance with splendid cheese stuffed in it. Bacon and Cheese Naan (RM 15) with that generous amount of bacon chips is good to go on its own but we had it with the Makhanwala. Big chunks of tandoori pork cooked in luscious creamy tomato and butter gravy and then flavoured with dry fenugreek leaves makes the most perfect Butter Pork (RM 28) I’ve ever had.
After a refit a in 2016, the restaurant formerly known as Fiercer than Fierce is now visually more welcoming and with the entry of pork as a draw factor, Meat the Porkers is even more so to be taken seriously when everything sings freshness and flavours. Prices are pegged slightly at the sharp end for a meal, but are totally worthy and even more admirable among pork lovers.
