The second mains is the German Style Meat Loaf - it is a traditional homemade meatloaf topped with a fried egg and bacon, served with Asian salad and fries.

Sri Hartamas Food: The Blue Cow Cafe - Baconlicious Meal At A Beef Specialist Shop Plaza Damas

The sheer mention of The Blue Cow Cafe located at N-1-4, Plaza Damas, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur would spark anyone mind that this shop only sells beef produce. But when we arrive we found out that it also serves pork dishes and for today we are going to be served "Bacon Inspired Dishes"

The Blue Cow Cafe has been around for quite some time now at the Plaza Damas, the concept offers diners and customers; to be able to either buy the produce back (as it is a butcher shop as well) for self-cooking or had it cooked at the cafe if the food in the menu does not fit your taste buds. What is being promised by the restaurant is top quality produce that is made at the premise and on demand.

For me; I personally find the back verandah of the restaurant rather cozy and quite nice to dine in especially in the evening as you can feel the night breeze and enjoy the beautiful view of the Agong Palace which also overlook the KL city skyline. 

The first dish we had for this review is the Bacon Salad (RM15.00); Served with Balsamic dressing; loaded with fresh leafy garden salad, cherry tomatoes, carrot strips and of course topped with crispy Fried Bacon, it was a refreshing start for us.

This is then followed by the Two Eggs Benedict With Bacon (RM30.00). Loves the way they cooked the Egg Benedict which has a plump feel from the melted cheese and the yolk was smooth and flow out upon slicing it. Perfect with the burger bread which we use to licked up the egg yolk with the soft crisp bite of the bacon coupled with the thin layer of the patty.

To try out some bacon on pasta, we had the Spaghetti Carbonara With Bacon (RM25.00). Cooked with creamy carbonara and cheese with pieces of bacon chips; the sauce was thick and gel up each strand of the spaghetti and mushroom which is then topped with a piece of Fried Bacon.

After that, we had the Bacon Cheese Burger (RM28.00). A very thick beef patties; sandwiched with slices of tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, bacon and topped with a piece of cheese. The patties were very succulent and have a nice bite texture. Married with the right amount of fats for the patties, it does not have a gamy taste. The burger is served with chilled coleslaw and ala-minute french fries on the side. 

For me, this next dish is one of my favourite cut for steak dishes. I love Rib Eye steak as they tend to have a nice texture i.e. not too chewy and yet with the right amount of fats that makes a steak perfect. This dish is called the Bacon Wrapped Rib Eye (RM65.00). The bacon is wrapped with the rib eye and grilled to medium cook; which is for me the best cooking style for steak, as the steak still has that slight bloody juicy taste while the texture of the meat still succulent.

The last dish for tonight is the Bangers and Bacon Mash (Farmers or Hunter) - RM30.00. We ordered this dish with the black pepper sauce. We like the texture of the Sausage which has a meaty and salty taste which went well with the special mash potatoes that are mixed with fried bacon chips to give you a crisp texture while you are eating the mash potatoes.

For dessert we had the Australian Ice Coffee (RM15.00); it comes with a shot of espresso with vanilla ice cream and topped with white cream. If you like a lighter version of an Affogato then you would like this more creamy and sweeter version.

By the way, for pet lovers, The Blue Cow cafe is a pet-friendly cafe, you can bring your pets in and they also have a pet menu called the WOOF WOOF Menu; which comes with either pork, beef or lamb for you to choose for your pets. So, now you can dine with your pets at The Blue Cow Cafe.

They also have a counter where you can buy produce for your pets too; mind you; they have a peanut butter just for your pets too if you feel to indulge in.

Damansara Perdana Food: Fork D World Bistro Cafe Restaurant - Porkilicious Meal To Die For

We have tasted many restaurant that specializes in Pork dishes, but at Fork D World located at 
D2-G-3A, Ritze Perdana 1 Commercial Lot, Jalan PJU 8/2, Damansara Perdana Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, pork meat dishes takes a new twist and dimension to will tantalize your taste-buds.

The decor of the cafe restaurant is one of a simple and straight forward; no frills setup but what excites us is the way the dishes are cooked using the pork meat especially the Chinese style roast pork and pork bacon as you read this blog posts.

Pork is one of yours truly favourite as this last minute invitation was accepted purely to taste one of the very unique and special dish which is the Awesome Bacon Lou Sang (RM55.00+). We have done  numerous number of Lou Sang review this time around and the thought of having a pork inspired Lou Sang got us to accept this very last minute invitation with no regrets.

Not content to use the normal ingredient in setting up this Lou Sang dish; the core ingredients are Streaky Bacon, Crispy Fried Pig Skin, Strips of Back Bacon, with Guava, Fried Yam, peeled Mandarin oranges and Pomelo. The in-house blended plum sauce has been specially fine tuned with Fried Bacon Bits to add an extraordinary porky flavour to this Lou Sang. The end result is that we had finished the entire Lou Sang to the last bit; a testament of how delicious this was. This is the first time we had the opportunity to taste a Bacon Lou Sang.

After the explosive Lou Sang, we had an appetizers, which is aptly named as Bacon Bombs (8 pieces) (RM18.00). technically when you bite into this Bomb; the enclosed cheese will explode in your mouth. For fans of cheese and pork; this appetizers really is a must not miss dish for you. The Mozarella cheese is wrapped around the crusty pastry within the bacon which is then deep fried to a crisp and topped with sprinkles of brown sugar.

After that, we had the Carbonara (RM22.00). This is a classic farmhouse carbonara sauce with Bacon and topped with a raw egg yolk. Stirred up the egg yolk and it will gel to form a rich creamy texture and aroma to the pasta of your choice.

The next pasta dish is a very addictive and a very sinful dish for those cholesterol watcher. This is the Siew Yoke / Roast Pork Fried Pasta (RM22.00). Using Olive oil and a mixture with the pork fats from the frying of the Roast Pork which is then sauteed with garlic and chili padi, it infuses a very aromatic tinge of spicy porky flavours to this simple looking but mouth watering pasta dish.

For the mains; we had the Grilled Australian Lamb Loin (RM35.00). The Aussie Loin meat which is marinated with a secret recipe of more than 20 years are grilled to a nice juicy charred and a taste which reminiscent the sugary Char Siew flavour. Served with a side of roasted vegetable, mini potatoes  and topped with a piece of fried bacon.

At Fork D World; there also serves a number of in-house made 9 inch pizza. We had the opportunity to taste 2 of it; which the first one is the Sambal Shrimp Pizza (RM22.00). The dough are in-house made and have a fine texture which is not too thick and still retains a nice doughy crunch. This pizza is then topped with shrimp, bacon chips, cheese and a special sambal which is not overly spicy tomato based sauce.

The second pizza which we had; is the savoury Roast Pork Pizza (RM22.00); this is another first, never before had we tasted a Roast Pork Pizza; but the verdict is you really have to go for a second piece and if possible a third piece or better still just order one whole pizza just for yourself.

The last dish before dessert is a new kid on the block daily specials (not on menu) which is the Porky Bacon Lasagna. If Garfield has tasted this lasagna, I bet he will jump to the roof; as the lasagna was made with bacon chips in a special in-house made bolognese sauce and topped with a sinfully rich layer of cheese.

Desserts from Fork D World Cafe are all in-house made; Here the desserts are not too sweet and just nice for our taste. The first dessert is the Durian Egg Pudding (RM8.00+); the pudding has a fine soft texture and a strong aroma of the durian. Too bad, I can't get another helping as we have eaten all there is.

Next we had the Chocolate Brownie (RM12+) - 2 portion in picture. The chocolate brownie are usually on a non permanent basis. For today it was made with cream cheese and are alternate with chocolate mint, peanuts with M&M and chocolate orange to gives the customers a varied choice of the day.

After that is the Dessert Waffle (RM10.00+) - 2 portion in picture. The waffles are American style which has a crisp texture as compared to the Belgian type which normally has a firmer texture. This waffles is served with a scoop of ice-cream and drizzle with salted caramel.

The last dessert that we had is the Apple Crumble (RM10+) - 2 portion in picture. Served with a scoop of ice-cream.

As the saying goes what is nice is not healthy but what is healthy is not nice. You have to make that decision. For pork meat lovers, you can really feast here on those cheat day to enjoy this sinful but scrumptious dishes that are served here.

And for those that really like to taste the Awesome Bacon Lou Sang, you better hurry up as it is served from now till the 15th day of Chinese New Year. Please take note that the restaurant is closed from 7th Feb 2016 to 14th Feb 2016. So you better hurry up if you really want to taste this special Lou Sang.

Brunch & Munch Restaurant @Desa Pandan, G-Village Kuala Lumpur - An Affair with Eggs and Pork Review


Many people that I knows just loves to eat eggs cooked in any form and style. Now to satisfy your craving for everything eggs, you can head over to Brunch & Munch located at Lot G-05, G Village, Jalan 1/76, off Jalan Desa Pandan, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

At Brunch & Munch, most if not all the menus items have one or two of their main ingredient which is Eggs and/or Pork. So, if you are fan of one of these two ingredients, you will be spoilt for choice at this restaurant whether be it for a full meal or just to munch.

The decor at the restaurant is one that exudes a warm feeling with a centrepiece display of a large crack giant egg. It exudes the theme of casual dining with soothing pipe in music of the sixties and seventies to calm your stress away during your meal.

Our food review started with an order of salad, which is the EggCellent Salad (RM18.00). Consisting of egg white, with quail eggs, carrots, onion rings, radicchio, rocket and bacon chips and topped with Honey-Citrus with Lemon dressing; it is a nice start for the review.

Next on is the Pork Corn Belly (RM18.00). The Roasted Pork Belly are lightly braised with dark soy sauce together with dried chillies exuding out a sweet and slight spicy taste to this pork belly. I prefer the white rice that came along with this dish as it was a nice match eaten with it; although customers can choose to have it with hash brown too.

This is then followed by a pasta dish which is Brunch & Munch Carbonara (RM26.00). This pasta is cooked in a carbonara style tagliatelle with pork belly, bacon, aged cheese and mushroom. After that it comes with a topped sous-vide eggs which will be mixed with the pasta giving you an extra creamy and cheesy texture.

The next pork dish is the Not So Boar Ribs (RM30.00). This ribs is double cooked, the first is using a slow cooked process with an in house special marinade to cook the ribs. Before serving; it is then sent to the griller to give it a smoky flavour. This dish is served with side dishes of sauteed cabbage with bacon and hash brown.

 At Brunch & Munch, they also served burgers too; the one that we tasted is the Cheese Boar Ger (RM35.00). Although the price is a little costly but the thick and succulent housemade pork patty made up for the price. We love the texture and taste of this patty as the patties are made from BBQ pork with lap cheong (chinese sausage). The burger is served with bacon, sunny side up, aged cheddar, pineapple relish, tomato, gherkin, lettuce and coleslaw.

The last dish that we tasted is the Scottish Eggs (RM18.00). A soft boiled eggs is wrapped in with the special minced spiced pork (much like the Yong Tau Foo) and sent to the deep fryer. It has a crisp on the outside layer and drizzled with a sweet hot sauce and served with pickle cucumber.

For those that loves to hang out; you can savour some of these eggs and pork dishes while having a drink or two and munching some of these dishes after work to avoid the massive traffic crawl.
