Tired of Changkat's madding crowd? Take a three-minute ramble over to Bergie, which provides pork-packed, belly-busting meals in a simple but serene setting.

Our top tip is a tall order: the Mountain Burger, featuring two thick, tender pork patties topped with pineapple, cheese, caramelized onions & a fried egg. Yep, it tastes as luscious as it looks, partnered with crisp, blistering-hot fries. Not exactly food for the heart, but it sure is hearty.

Another humdinger: grilled pork belly, as all-out juicy as it gets, soaked in citrus-infused gravy that beats BBQ sauce any night. And to state the obvious: Bergie's food is built for sharing.

Pork sausage & bacon pizza. We'd prefer this with a thinner crust, but the rich toppings make up for that, with lots of chunky, flavorful meat embedded in the gooiest cheese imaginable.

Pork meatball spaghetti. No-frills pasta for people who want it back to the basics. Reminded us of the first time we tried spaghetti bolognese, when we gleefully savored every mouthful, inadvertently smearing some tangy sauce on our chins and spilling strands of pasta on the table.

Apple Margarita & Long Island Iced Tea cocktails.

Softie Snake Bite & Poor Man's Black Velvet beer.

Lyrebird Shiraz. Wine is available by both the bottle and the glass.
