Vive La Vida

This Puchong watering hole is pretty popular, but while we were won over by its wide selection of booze and warm service, we can't recommend its food.

This Spanish suckling pig seemed like a highlight, but alas, the meat was infected by a putrid stench that permeated every bite. We couldn't finish it.

The pork ribs were only marginally more palatable. Tough, bony and coated in a cloying barbecue glaze with the synthetic flavor of bottled ketchup.

Jose Cuervo Gold Margarita (Jose Cuervo Especial Gold Tequila, Cointreau, sweet & sour mix) & Nutcracker (whisky, frangelico, amaretto, egg white, sweet & sour mix).

Yering Station Pinot Noir (2007).

IOI Boulevard, Puchong.


  1. Man, that's the putrid stench of pork that I was talking about!

  2. Michelle: yikes! Thank goodness not all pork tastes that way! Otherwise I'd stay far, far, far away from it! =)

  3. this is the 1st time i heard people not finishing a suckling pig. yucks! you should feedback to the owner not to waste a piglet

  4. Gah! Putrid stench that permeated every bite? That sounds mad scary! I'd be worried even about the beverages!

  5. eiling: yaaa, it was the most foul pork i've tasted in years! a pity, since the texture of the meat was actually quite juicy =)
    min: ohh, they've got a staggering selection of coktails spanning multiple pages! many premium tequila-based ones. pretty potent too :D

  6. Eww! I would have demanded for another serving! And God forbid if it tasted exactly the same!

  7. Tng: yaaaa, I really should have. Sigh! Didn't expect it to be that bad though!
