These days, restaurant that serves pork dishes are going upmarket with the offering of specialty pork which ensures premium quality meat. Best Restaurant To Eat was invited by Open Rice for a special piggylicious food review at Piggy Tail Restaurant located at 39, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur.
The pork served here is from Sakura Pork where the pigs are raised using traditional and conventional method and are fed with vegetable grain feed only. This ensures that the meat does not have a gamy smell and the quality of the meat is ensured.
At Piggy Tail, it is a food adventure where western dishes are cooked with a twist of oriental flavours, thereby giving your taste bud an enticing experience. The decor at Piggy Tail is one of a leisure and open concept with al fresco dining at the front of the restaurant.
Our food review started off with a special starters/appetizer which is Pork Corn (RM16.00). This is a deep-fried chunks of Sakura Pork which is peppered with secret spices and served with Special BBQ Mayo. The pork meat used were of a special cut which has a balanced thin layer of skin, fat, meat and gives a very crisp texture and best paired with a glass of wine or cold beer.
Our main started with some pasta offering, the first of which is the Premium Pork Aglio Olio (RM25.00). This spaghetti is served with the Grilled Sakura Pork Neck Meat and cooked with Red Chilli Flakes, Garlic, Olive Oil and Sliced Bacon.
We loved the pork neck meat as it was grilled to the right balance while still retaining the succulent and juicy meat. With the chilli flakes, it gives it a spicy twist and was another nice dish to be paired with the cold beer.
The first main dish for the night was the Piggy Pork Shoulder Steak (RM45.00). This is a premium Pork Shoulder Meat which is barbecued with a special in house made Piggy BBQ Sauce.
We find the meat extremely juicy, succulent and has a very good tender texture with each bite of the meat. This pork is served with Mash Potatoes and Salad.
We find this ribs a little too spicy though; but if you take it with a cold beer; that is another story altogether.
After the few pork dishes, the next is the Signature Lamb Chop (RM45.00) it is a grilled NZ Lamb Chop marinated with a specialty homemade Mongolian Sauce and served with chips and vegetable of the day.
There you have it, all the piggylicious meal from start to end. For those that loves pork dishes that can be paired with cold beer or liquor; Piggy Tail @Bangsar will not definitely not disappoint you.
