Oh yes! I remember this meal from three years ago, and ooooh. Was it good! Thank you for bringing back a great memory!

Ed

Just delicious! I can't wait to go back there!

i guess Pinoys and the Balinese are not at all different when it comes to pork!

Oooh, Ibu Oka. Yes, babi guling was definitely the highlight of our Bali trip. Loved sitting on those little verandahs, having our meal. We were hunting for babi guling wherever we went, much to the amusement/chagrin of my in-laws. We just had Petaling Street siew yoke (for Qing Ming season). I guess that's not a bad substitute!

The Chinese in Malaysia appreciate roasted pork as much as the Pinoys and the Balinese.

I took Rolly and his wife for a sample when they were here. :) They loved it!

Totally agree with Brett that Wong Kee's roast pork belly in KL should be in top 5. A great porky treat when you can't get your hands on Ibu Oka's babi guling.

Wow, this brings back some memories. Its great you got a look in on how it was made. I never knew coffee branches were used.

Hi Bayi,

Isn't the Chinese preference to have blistered roast skin, though, rather than smooth roast skin?
