J : "What's that? New pork burger place in Solaris? Let's go!" :)
A friend had pointed out a new-ish restaurant in Solaris so we popped over for lunch one day. We found the location quite easily - it's located in the block of shops just opposite Cold Storage:
Inside, the restaurant is modern yet casual, with lots of purposely unfinished surfaces (eg. concrete floor+bar top) matched with sleek white chairs and simple wooden tables:
The lunch time menu is bit limited, with a strange mix of lunch appropriate light meals (eg. burgers, sandwiches) with some much heavier choices (eg. meat platter) on the specials board.
That day, we started off with the Beef & Bacon Wrap (RM 20+):
Simple and nice. :) The beef was tender enough, well marinated and wrapped in a light flat bread.
(Wouldn't mind ordering this again)
Of course, I had to try the Open Faced Pork Burger (RM 28+):
Mmmmmmm... a chunky and tasty pork patty, served with a jiggly egg (perfect!), lightly seared bacon and veggies atop a crusty piece of bread - YUM!
A word of caution though: Another friend who went to Providore on a separate occasion said that her pork burger was a little dry.... As for me, well, I was satisfied with my burger that day. :)
When I saw the Sanbitter drink (RM 7+) on the menu, I was curious:
I tend to order things just because I've never seen it in other restaurants, and most times it works out - I get to try something interesting/ different, even though it may or may not taste fantastic.
In this case however, I ended up with a tiny glass of bright red liquid which tasted like bitter cough medicine (at best). :(
(Hey, if you like bitter drinks though then this is a good choice for you, I guess)
So it's: Good selection of porky options (among other things) in Solaris Mont Kiara, friendly service and comfortable ambience BUT food is ever so slightly pricey and nothing else bad to say really... :)
