Tu Kar

The sinful Pork Knuckle, aka Tu Kar. Seeing the Tu Kar will always remind me of that "someone".. And because of her mishap, subsequently each time when I was inside any hotels, I will pay extra attention to the steps. History shouldn't repeat, even though on the different person :P

I'm not a fan of Tu Kar but no harm eating it once in a blue moon... And that blue moon was one and half years ago, in Thailand.

*Photos taken when I was in Hatyai, Thailand @ May 2006*

Furkids in Hong Kong said...

?? I could have sworn I posted a comment last night. Oh well......

I love pigs knuckle! And that looks so tempting! But lately I've stopped myself from eating any land-based animals (as a start) and hopefully will progress to not eating seafood either to be a vegetarian. Hope I succeed!

But *sigh*, that does look so tempting.

Chen said...

Angel,
your fault woh..
cos u asked me whether i got update or not yesterday night. Then i go korek korek and did that update loh.

See? It's your fault. Hahahahha
I syiok tidur semalam after sampat with u while u were still lam-ing at the 我和春天有个约会. This morning hoh, feel so lazy to wake up :P

Purple Moon ah? Then tonight is what moon? Yellow Moon? :P

LB,
Tu Kar is hokkien name for Chee Kiok leh. No throwing star here, no picking up star either. Only blue moon, no stars... :P

Kkkkkk.. purple tei kor is Misti's tei kor? Kkkkkk.. Angel's one is rainbow colour. Ah Ben's one is forever blue-blue tei :P

Chen said...

kyh,
Nope, I'm using Jasc Paintshop Pro instead. I edited the photo ages ago and it was inside my draft all these while ;)

I ditto with u. I'm not that into those fatty-oily-cholesterol-laden food too. I prefer eating the lean meat :)

SA,
and very sinful too ;)
The curse of the pig :D

Zhu,
Wanna have some? This is quite a popular dish over here in Malaysia :)

Chen said...

may,
Kkkkkk...
Tukar the Tu Kar with Two Car? LOL
very ocipala liao :P

yenjai,
i dunno u like Tu Kar.
Very sinful leh the Chee Kiok..
This dish is full of curse - the curse of the cholesterol. LOLOL

moz,
Hah? U don't eat pork wan ah?
Then u don't eat bak kut teh and those bak kwa/yoke kong liao? Oh yeah, u can eat the Chic Kut Teh and Chicken meat bak kwa too :P

Chen said...

winniethepooh,
Is it? Might be the portion u ate in the past is not fresh? I didn't taste anything funny with the pork there :)

Haven't try out their Pork Burger yet (which is not available in Malaysia).

mich,
hand punya? Tu Chiu? Pig has hands meh? I thought all are legs? Hehheheh..

ehon,
Wah.. very sinful liao, eating the oink oink fatty tu kar.

Angel very ocipala mah..
She wants to Tukar the Tu kar :P

Chen said...

mudpie,
Yeah, you are correct. Chee keok is the same as Tu Kar.
Chee Keok = Cantonese.
Tu Kar = Hokkien ;)

Oink Oink hugs ;)

keeyit,
I prefer bak kut teh (with lean meat, mushroom, yew char koay etc) than tu kar ;)

hor ny ang moh,
Let's have some then :D
I presume u haven't have it for quite a while?

Enjoy your day, and your meal :)

Chen said...

woof meow,
Huh? what ocipala makan show u watch? hahahha.. Must be those Taiwanese show or.. Japanese show? LOL

doreen,
Yeah, too fatty. I don't really fancy those fatty and oily food stuff, including those deep fried food stuff :D

kenny,
Hungry ah? I also hungry at the moment. It's 6 pm liao.

I presume it is not easy to get Tu Kar in Dubai?

Chen said...

giddy tigress,
poor tummy. Pat pat tummy :D

ECL,
yeah loh, your famous Tu Kar :P

Everytime I go outstation, i need to stay in the hotel mah. I dowan to sleep on the road side nor under the bridge leh. Hehehhe

Thailand is the land of yummy food. Love their food there. *Slurp* Lao Hao Sui liao..

Furkids,
Blogger/Blogspot at times chi mah keng wan. At times it swallowed my comments too :(

Wow, that's a big move. I have few vegetarian friends too. Hope u can succeed :)

Sean @ lifelongsharing.com said...

I don't like Tu Kar!! But my dad loves it so much... Too oily and not healthy, luckily my dad not consume it anymore...

mich said...

dono?
mummy also say chu sau..hahaha...

day-dreamer said...

I like tu kar cho, the sourer the better... wahahahaha!

Chen said...

sean,
Yeah, it's definitely unhealthy judging from the thick layer of visible fat. :D

mich,
ham chu shau i know lah :P
I presume the "hand" refers to the "front limbs" of the pigs. What's the difference in comparison with the pig knuckle in term of taste or texture? i dunno liao..

day dreamer,
wah.. another sinful dishes. LOL
can tambah nasi wan if eating that. I just want the soup, not the fatty tu kar :P

Berberboo said...

OMG... I LOVE PORK SO MUCH!!! obsession... haha

Woof Woof n Meow Meow said...

nyonyapenang said...

Gua suka makan too-khar.....'kiam-chye too-khar'....'too-khar chore'....'sio too-khar'....'bak-kut-teh thoo-khar'...'German too-khar'.....**slurrrpssss....**

mistipurple said...

no wonder my tei kor missing.

Selba said...

It looks kinda ba kut teh, no?

mich said...

u go rasa d then let me know la..aahaha

Chen said...

berberboo,
Hahaha, u r indeed a faithful pork fan ;). The pork dishes I love the most is bak kut teh, besides the minced pork :)

woof meow,
Too many shows available on Astro. Didn't watch that makan show u mentioned. At times it is torturing to watch those makan show cos u can watch but u cannot taste. LOL

nyonya,
walao, u made my tummy grumbling and singing liao. *Hungwee*

Chen said...

misti,
Kkkkk.. your missing purple tei kor reminds me of Angel's missing her bra not long ago (but at the end she managed to find it ~ very sotong liao). Hehehehe

selba,
The colour might resemble bak kut teh but the taste is totally different. I prefer bak kut teh as it is much more delicious ;)

mich,
hahaha, i'm not really interested in tu kar or tu chiu leh. If someone else order the dish, i will only take the lean meat and omit the fatty part :P
