If you love pork, then this is one post that you MUST read one!

The Champ Kitchen is a restaurant located in Jalan KIP at Kepong that specializes in pork dishes. Despite the wide varieties of food in Kepong area, The Champ Kitchen has quickly received positive feedback from the locals, and has been attracting quite a crowd to the restaurant. Thanks to OpenRice, I had the chance to try out some of the dishes from The Champ Kitchen.

The recipe has been passes down from generation to generation; and after several amendments, they successfully came out with dishes that are well-received by the locals.

One of the signature dishes in the restaurant definitely has to be their pork knuckle. Bones will be removed, and the pork knuckles will be cooked for 72 hours non-stop so that the knuckles will be able to absorb all the goodness of the gravy.
