Craft Brews @ Mutiara Damansara
December 23, 2009
This comfy watering hole has opened near The Curve. Lotsa good grub & sparkling service.
The beers are the main attraction, so let's start this entry with drinks. Direct from Singapore's RedDot Brewhouse, we had the Monster Green Lager (brewed with spirulina) and English Ale (a ruby-red beer). RM17 for a half-pint, both were pleasantly smooth & not too strong-tasting.
Flying Dog's "Doggie Style" Classic Pale Ale and "Old Scratch" Amber Lager. Tasted like regular beer, but I'm really the wrong person to be giving any opinions on this, since I usually stick to wine and cocktails.
Skewers of roast pork wrapped with bacon. Succulent stuff, full of flavour.
Caramelized roast pork with onions, chillies and curry leaves. At first bite, this is sorta similar to Vintry's version.
Honey mustard pork back ribs. Tender and well-marinated, with an addictive sweet-salty taste that kept us munching tirelessly.
Caribbean Spice Chicken, marinated with RedDot Pilsner beer, peanuts and brown sugar. The meat was a tad too tough and surprisingly kinda bland.
Deep-fried eggplant chips coated in crispy salted egg batter. Ideal for snacking.
Tex-Mex Hickory BBQ Pork Back Ribs. Portions here are pretty hearty.
A big bowl of salad was meant to ease our guilt, but I'm not sure we finished it.
