Sam's

A cheerful addition to Bukit Damansara's cluster of suburban watering holes. Potentially where you'd wanna go where people know people are all the same, where everybody knows your name. *Cue wistful piano tinkling*

For Cliff, the meat-lovin' mailman: one of the juiciest beef ribs around. So satisfying.

For Norm, the perpetually ravenous house painter: BBQ lamb burger, featuring 150 grams of lean ground lamb spiced with garlic, onions, oregano & tomatoes. The patty could be more succulent, but this is still a nice change from the regular beef, chicken & pork burgers.

For Diane, the waitress who wants to watch her weight: Nicoise salad. Obligatory, ordinary greens to reduce the guilt factor.

Making your way through the world today takes all the booze you've got. For Woody, the cool-cat bartender: Grasshopper (vodka, green de mint, white de cacao, vanilla ice cream, syrup) & Frozen Black Irish (vodka, kahlua, bailey's, vanilla ice cream).

For Carla, the other waitress, who needs something strong after a long night on her feet: Cosmopolitan & Downhill Racer (rum, amaretto, pineapple juice).

  8. michelle: yeps, definitely can be shared! (except for customers with caveman-like appetites, heheh) :D
    lfb: now what would your equally meat-lovin', petronas-tower-ensconced office minion have to say about your proposed dalliance with a mailman, i wonder. hmmmm :P
    hungry female: now you've got me thinking 'donnnnnuttttts' like homer! i haven't eaten any desserts all week, so i need a sugar fix today! :D
    eiling: yep, lots of the usual pub grub, both from east and west. i think there's the usual fried rice, frankfurters, etc on the menu too =)

  11. My equally meat-lovin', petronas-tower-ensconced office minion would probably say, "Take some pictures, and if nice, bring back okay?"

    LOL

  15. Hey Sean, btw I'm a regular at Sam's and to be honest even their local fare as well as Indian tid bits is really not that bad. While it is a famous lawyer's hangout in KL (i'm not a lawyer though haha), nice place to chill and abundant of food options to savour the taste buds.
