A friend brought me to one of his favourite porky places (which I think was formerly known as Wendy's Bistro), located in the Sunway Mentari area - a bustling shoplot area just opposite Sunway Pyramid, filled with food places:
(There are quite a lot of popular/"famous" all you can eat Steamboat restaurants in this vicinity)
Inside, it's a simple set up but fairly comfortable. It is also very very popular with families and people living in the area and is full on most nights, so please do book a table or risk being turned away:
(We saw at least 3 sets of people being turned away that night)
Scanning the menu, I saw the Portabello Bacon Cheese (RM 16.80++) and just had to have it:
I found it just a bit oily but otherwise, I enjoyed this dish - the mushroom was pretty sizeable and meaty with an evident earthy aroma that was not overpowering, complemented well by the savoury cheese and bacon bits.
For our mains we had the Pork Bolognese (RM 25.80++):
The pasta didn't taste authentically Italian but was pretty yummy anyway, in a wholesome homecooked way - the chunky savoury sauce went well with the spaghetti, especially with some parmesan sprinkled on top.
We also shared the Pork Belly (RM 27.90++) which is considered to be one of the specialties:
The meat was tender enough (although not quite "melt in mouth") and fairly well marinated. Still, I thought it tasted good considering the price - very worth it for < 30 bucks:
To end the night we had the Chocolate Brownie (RM 12.90++):
I really liked that it wasn't too sweet and had a nice light but moist texture,... just would have liked it to be a bit more chocolatey. Still, it went well with the vanilla ice cream and felt like a pretty guilt free way to end the night so I enjoyed it. :)
Overall, I have to admit that I didn't exactly get my socks knocked off but I thought that it tasted nice considering the very reasonable prices - wouldn't mind going back to try out the sausages and pork burger which I hear are yummy.
So it's: Simple ambience, friendly service, decent range of porky food at reasonable prices BUT nothing bad really - just that the service can be a biiiittttt slow when it gets packed. :).....
