90% of the Sweet and Sour Menu Should Not Exist. Period.

This is THE sorriest excuse for Chinese food I have ever come across:

Pork balls

Sweet and sour pork balls?!

I have never ever heard of anything like it.

Looking at the menu, I realise they sweet and sour EVERYTHING here.

They aren’t even real pork balls.

Real pork balls are made from pork minced into a paste and mixed with some flour. The less flour the better.

But these? They are basically balls of pure flour with a pinky nail-sized piece of pork meat stuffed in the middle of it, then fried and poured over with that generic sweet and sour sauce they have here.

I am very often open to insults and criticisms of Hong Kong/China, but this, THIS; the fact that it’s cooked by Chinese; and the fact that Nasty actually liked it (!!!)…is probably the saddest thing ever.

    sweet and sour the gwailous love. and other ‘generic’ oriental style of cooking, like ‘black pepper this-and-that’, or stir-fry this-and-that, or sichuan this-and-that, but they all come out tasting wrong.

    • Of course I remember! I’ve been recommending that place to anyone who goes to KL! I even remember it’s at the end of Jalan Alor by the parking lot! Ahahaha…

      And no, if you do go, don’t tell me! ;)
