The Brew House offers a fusion of Pan-Asian and modern western gastronomy, the food which ranges from a wide selection of meats especially pork, pasta, pizzas and Asian delicacies is as inspired and varied as its' brews offering. For more information and promotion, you can visit The Brew House Facebook Page

The Brew House Pork Gyoza

For our review; we tasted the Pork Gyoza (6pcs - RM12.80). Filled with a mixture of ground pork, chives, ginger, cabbage, and minced garlic. With a crispy skin at the bottom and a top soft texture, it is the best compliment with the beer.

The Brew House Salted Egg Fish Skin with Pork Floss

Another perfect dish for the drinkers will be the Salted Egg Fish Skin with Pork Floss (RM10.80). Fried to a deep crisp with a coating of salted eggs sauce and blended in with the pork floss; it is a delight to eat this snack with a cold drink/beer. Children especially will like this salty dish as once you start eating it; you will be tempted to take the second piece and so forth.

The Brew House Bacon Wrapped Pork Meatball Braised In Stout Sauce

Next, we had the Bacon Wrapped Pork Meatball Braised In Stout Sauce (RM14.80); This minced pork meat is wrapped with a piece of Bacon and deep fried; it is then cooked with an onion based gravy with Connor's stout. Served with a toasted bread for you to scoop up the gravy, its taste was indeed special.  

The Brew House Porky Platter

Another crowd favourite snacks for your beers is the Porky Platter (RM25.80). This porky platter is served with Luncheon Meat, Sticky Ribs and a generous portion of Roast Pork; which is cut into bite sizes and great as a sharing portion.

The Brew House The Ultimate Buffalo Fries

The last appetizer that we tasted is The Ultimate Buffalo Fries (RM13.80). If you have eaten Sloppy Joe Fries; you would see the similarity here, but at The Brew House; instead of Minced Beef, they used the minced pork and top with cheese sauce and pork floss. The Chef uses the Buffalo fries as these fries will stay crisp for a longer period of time.

The Brew House Seafood Truffle Fried Rice

For rice lovers, The Brew House has a few different varieties for you to choose from; we decided on the more special one which is the Seafood Truffle Fried Rice (RM18.80). When the fried rice reaches our table; the aroma of the truffle oil was enticing. Seafood like prawns, mussel and squid could be found in the fried rice which is then topped with Ebiko.  

The Brew House Special Nasi Lemak Roasted Pork

If you are a big eater and loves some spice in your food; you might be tempted to try out The Brew House Special Nasi Lemak Roasted Pork. Served with the usual nasi lemak condiments which are cucumber, boiled eggs, peanuts and anchovies; you will also have a generous serving of the Roasted Pork (Siew Yok). The steaming hot coconut rice was very fragrant.

The Brew House Lala Noodle Soup

The next dish we tasted is the Lala Noodle Soup (RM15.80). The Bee Hoon noodle is cooked with a special stock broth together with ginger, wolfberries and spring onion which is then topped with a superb amount of Chinese Wine. 

The Brew House Nyonya Laksa With Roasted Pork

The second noodle dish that we sampled is the Nyonya Laksa With Roasted Pork (RM18.80). We like the rich & creamy broth of the laksa. Served with tau foo pok, bean sprout and most important the roasted pork.

The Brew House Bacon Steak

If you are not fans of Asian food; The Brew House does offer some Western delights which are the Bacon Steak (RM19.80) as shown above. Thick Slice of in-house made Bacon are pan fried on the outside while the inside still retains a tender juicy texture. This steak is served with Potato Salad,  Cherry Tomatoes, Corns and Peas.

The Brew House Pork Bacon & Peach Pizza

Followed by the Pork Bacon & Peach Pizza (RM18.80). The topping for this pizza is caramelized onion with smoked bacon, sliced peaches and mushrooms in a thin crispy crust. 

The Brew House Pork Burger

Our final dish is the voracious Brew House Pork Burger (RM15.80). The pork meat patties which is in-house made was very huge. Served on the side are coleslaw and fries.

The Brew House Sunway Giza

For us, there are only 2 things to remember at The Brew House. The first is the Beer and the second is porky dishes that are served here. So, if you are game for either one of these; you will find feel at home at The Brew House.

Kota Damansara Food: GUESS WHAT Vietnamese Restaurant

Kota Damansara Food GUESS WHAT Vietnamese Restaurant

Looking for authentic Vietnamese food around Kota Damansara can be quite challenging. We recently chance upon GUESS WHAT Vietnamese Restaurant located at 7, Jalan PJU 5/6, Kota Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor which offers popular Vietnamese Street Food at a value for money prices.

GUESS WHAT Vietnamese Restaurant

Started about five months ago GUESS WHAT Kota Damansara offers a variety of famous Vietnamese street food like Pho, Banh Mi and others. It has a modern setup that diners can enjoy their dishes in a colourful and lively environment.

Kota Damansara Food

We started with an order from the appetizer menu which the first is the popular Vietnamese Rolls called the Summer Rolls (RM6.90). The Chef which hails from Vietnam has concocted a special spicy peanut sauce as the dipping sauce for the rolls.


Next on is the Deep Fried Summer Roll (RM6.90) which has yam, Taugeh and carrot as its filling. Nice crisp on the outside with a juicy filling.


For me, the next appetizer is my favourite which is the Fish Sauce Chicken Wings (RM6.90). Marinated with premium quality Vietnamese fish sauce, it has a very savoury salty taste and has a fragrant aroma. You can taste the flavour down to the bones. Needless to day a second helping was on the card.


For the Pho, We ordered the Australian Beef Pho. This is a premium serving; as the meat is 100% Australian Beef. Sliced to a wafer-thin layer, it will curl up when mix with the hot broth. Nice springy texture. According to the Chef, each bowl will get 100 gram of meat slices. You can either order the normal Beef Slice RM13.90 while the premium Ribeye Beef Slice is at RM17.90. A real value for money considering the meat portion and the Australian Beef that is used. another point to note is that at GUESS WHAT, if you are not a fan of the Pho, you can request to replace it with Eggs Noodles or Rice Noodles for all its Pho dishes.


Next, we had the Beef Internal Organ (RM12.90). This Pho comes with Beef Tendon (my favourite), Honey Comb Beef Stomach, Sponge Stomach and Heart although you can opt for Beef Shin instead. The broth was flavourful as the chef uses the Beef Neck Bone as the main base ingredients with 5 to 6 different spices that are added to it. The slightly darker coloured broth is boiled overnight for more than 8 to 10 hours.


For those that love beef balls, you can also the Beef Ball Pho  (RM13.90) you can try this as the Beef Balls are 100% in-house made. It has a nice bite and firm texture. In order not to have wastage, you can order your Basil Leaves, Bean Sprout as a side order (RM1.50).


If you are not the beefy type, GUESS WHAT also offers Pork Noodles (RM8.90)which is topped with fried lard (Chu Yau Char) to gives you that finer porky taste.


The Chicken Noodles (RM8.90) is served with cut meat slices and a poached Half Boiled Kampung Eggs.


The fish that GUESS WHAT uses for its Fish noodles (RM12.90) are the Toman Fish which has a nice bouncy and flaky texture. While the broth used to cook these noodles which include the pork and chicken are cooked with chicken bones which has a much lighter taste.


Another not to be missed Noodle dish is the Clams Noodles (RM8.90). At this price and based on the number of clams that came in the bowl; it is a real value for money. Even a bowl of Pork Noodles from the neighbourhood coffee shop already cost RM6.50. What's more, you can taste the quality of the clams which has a juicy and firm fresh texture that is used to cook this noodle.


According to the owner, they would like to offers a variety of food at GUESS WHAT as some people are Rice people. To cater for this group of customers; there are a few varieties of Rice dish; the first of which is the Pork Chop Rice  (RM12.90). According to the Chef, the Pork and Chicken meat are marinated in garlic, honey, condensed milk and pan-fried to a nice crisp.


and the Chicken Chop Rice  (RM12.90). Each rice dish is served with a sunny side up. If you notice the colour of the yolk; it has a deep orange colour which is the character of the Kampung Eggs.


Another Rice Dish is the Heritage Coconut Rice  (RM16.50) which comes with a soup base made from the coconut water and cooked with fresh coconut flesh. We like the taste of the broth as it has a naturally sweet flavour of the coconut together with Beef Broth. It comes with the in-house made Beef Ball.


Banh Mi is also offered at GUESS WHAT. There are altogether 4 difference flavours that you can choose from which is Beef, Pork, Tuna and Chicken for RM7.90 each. The bread is custom made specifically for GUESS WHAT which still maintains the nice soft crunch and soft texture of the bread even after a while.


Currently, at GUESS WHAT they only serve one dessert and it is not a Vietnamese Dessert but a Malaysian dessert which is Durian Cendol  (RM11.50). According to the owner, the Durian Puree is sourced from the Betong (not Bentong), South Thailand. For me; I still prefer my Musang King Cendol which has a much more pungent bitter taste as compared to Thai Durian which tends to have a sweeter taste.

GUESS WHAT Vietnamese Restaurant

For Vietnamese Coffee fans, you really have to order the Vietnamese Coffee served at GUESS WHAT. There are 2 variant of coffee that is served here; the first of which is Sang Tao 1 (RM5.90 Hot - RM6.90 Iced)

Vietnamese Coffee

while the second variant is the Phat Hai (RM5.50 Hot - RM6.50 Iced)  which has a chocolatey aftertaste. I like this. One of the characteristics of a real Vietnamese coffee is the strong taste of the coffee and even though you order the Ice Coffee, somehow even after the ice is melted, it does not really dilute the colour of the coffee.
