[Non-halal] Here’s our favourite place for Hokkaido Pork Don in KL!
We absolutely love this dish at Senya Izakaya. For RM27, you get a bowl of rice topped with beautifully grilled pork belly, soft-boiled eggs, and miso soup.
This is such an indulgent treat. The pork belly is grilled to yield perfect caramelisation. We love that the meat is super tender with melt-in-the-mouth fats.
Glisten and learn
As the meat is glazed with a sweet-savory sauce (not unlike teriyaki), it has a similar taste profile as bakkwa and char siew. The charred bits really elevate the dish to the next level, and best enjoyed with the runny egg mixed in all together.
We also enjoyed the Tokyo Pork Don (RM23) – a rice bowl topped with pork belly that’s simmered with dashi and onions. The meat is sweet (thanks to the onions), juicy and tender.
Senya Izakaya has quite an extensive menu – but these are our top two orders from this establishment. Check them out for delivery and pick-up options.
We had these two delicious bowls before MCO 3.0 was announced, when dine-in was possible.
