Sorry if this seems like a never-ending slew of non-halal posts. I have a backlog of posts that I’m trying to clear, and somehow the easiest ones to write about (for now) are related to food and pork. *shrugs*
I bought a couple of MyDeal vouchers for BellyGood. RM38 for a 3 course pork feast + drink, sounded pretty good.
Later I found out that they used to be Wendy’s Bistro, one of the earliest places I knew that served affordable non-halal food. Probably still by the same people.
The restaurant interior looked cosy. When we went, they had some building maintenance problems but it wasn’t a biggie to us. The restaurant looked like it is operated by a small family. Very warm, friendly and gracious people, just don’t expect immediate service especially if they’re busy.
We ordered a side of garlic bread (RM 6.80) to share. It was yums! Our 1st course was a salad choice of either grilled bacon or smoked salmon. RM23.90 for the full portion; for this we were served the quarter portion. Later Sue told us that based on experience, it was the adequate amount to serve, else with the mains and dessert, there’d be food wastage. I thought she was right.
Time for our mains! We had full portions of the Grilled Pork Belly (RM27.90) and Baby Back Ribs (RM29.90), both served with homemade mashed potatoes and coleslaw.
I know you want the close-up. Here it is: melt-in-your-mouth grilled pork belly!
.. and the baby back ribs that comes in a slightly spicy and tangy sauce. Really tender and delicious!
What did they taste like? Awesome! Like how proper pork belly and baby back ribs should. It’s so good, I’d definitely go back for more. By the way, I read some on-line reviews not in favour of their grilled pork ribs. So make sure that you get the BABY BACK ribs.
Then we had dessert: baked cinnamon apples with vanilla ice-cream (RM12.90), and warm sticky date pudding with vanilla ice-cream. Both equally delicious, we were served the 3/4 portions.
I know this is totally and utterly corny but I just have to say it: WE HAD A BELLY GOOD TIME! Kah kah kah…
