Saint's has come marching in, bringing haggis at last to the Klang Valley.
It's an acquired taste, this Scottish minced blend of sheep's heart, liver & lungs with onion, oatmeal, suet, salt & spices. Gamy and savory, with a texture that's both mushy and nutty. Served with traditional "neep & tatties" _ turnips & potatoes.
The rest of the menu comprises pub grub that should fit in at many U.K. establishments. The Ploughman's sandwich would be a hearty meal on its own, packed with plenty of cheese, caramelized onions & tomatoes. Simple but satisfying.
Roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. The strips of Angus beef were less tender than expected, though everything else was fine. Note: all this food might make it look like we were having a respectable brunch here, but it was actually a boozy supper.
Saint's Fizz (prosecco, martini rosso, cointreau, white sugar cube) & Sinner's Rum Punch (havana especial rum, creme de cassis, pineapple, orange juice, lime juice).
A Taste of Speyside (Macallan 10yr old, whiskey honey, apple juice, dot angostura bitters) & Victorian Mojito (hendricks gin, lime juice, elderflower nettle cordial, syrup de gomme, apple juice, mint leaves).
