Beggar's Pork Trotter @ Jugra, Banting, Selangor

This is a famous eating place in Jugra, Banting. They don't entertain any walk-in dine in. You must do advance booking before you can eat at this place. Booking must be at least 24 hours before you come to this shop. Although, this place is famous for their beggar's chicken, but most of my friends said that their chicken is not that good. Their best item is beggar's pork trotter. I ask my colleague to book in advance for take away today.

Taste:10/10(Excellent. The pork trotter is flavourful and herbs & spices aroma is absorbed into the pork trotter. They used a lot of roasted garlic, chinese herbs, spices & dark soy sauce. The dish is wrapped using paper, aluminium foil, plastic, another layer of paper then covered by a layer of clay. This cooking method makes the meat dry and retain its own original flavour).
Price:6/10(Moderate. I would rate this dish as moderate as a lot of preparation is needed and the portion is quite big. They price this pork trotter at RM51 per packet. You will get the whole pig leg prepared with chinese herbs and spices in the packet. I think their beggar's chicken is over-priced at RM48 per chicken. Logically, chicken is far more cheaper than one pork trotter but it only cheaper by RM3).


This is where they cook. Under the stones, clay and hot ashes.

Clay to wrap outer layer of paper.

No idea what is this. But I think it is charcoal.

This is the famous Axian programme on Astro which recommends this place to the viewers. This traditional prepared beggar's dishes restaurant became more famous after featured in the TV programme.

This is their list of price for each item.

This restaurant only have this board to introduce itself!

Look for this also.

This is the beggar's pork trotter that I took away.

Unwrapped the first layer of newspaper.

Unwrapped the second layer of paper. Now you will see clay. By removing the clay, there is another layer of paper. Remove the paper and you will see the pork trotter wrapped in plastic sheet then covered by paper and aluminium foil.

This is the final product I get.
