Pork knuckles from Werner's Oven

Lunch with fatpig. Finally got down to this place (6 Upper East Coast Road. #01-01/02/03, S455220, tel : 6442 3897) to try the fried pork knuckles which we have been hearing good things about. Turns out that it was bit of a disappointment and it wasn't much of a big deal. The crispy crackling was fragrant and the size of the knuckle was pretty big, but the knuckle was filled with so much fats that at the end, it felt overwhelming. I prefer the ones down at Brotzeit and Paulaners which were cleaner in taste, a bit more costly and also strangely, had better separation between the fat and the meat in the pork knuckle. This has possibly given me a week's worth of cholesterol in a single seating if not more. I'll be laying off these things for some time and definitely in no hurry to come back if ever.

I had a boiled pork knuckle just last week at Werners and it looked so different. It was way much bigger than what you had.

Should post mine up to compare.

Maybe the pigs have gotten bigger?
