Moon Bar @ Bukit Damansara

Pub-loving, pork-munching carnivores, feel free to howl at the moon at Plaza Damansara.

At this friendly neighborhood watering hole, stressed-out urban slaves can cast off their worries and sink their teeth into a better-than-expected pork burger, boasting one of KL's juiciest patties, melted colby cheese and caramelized onions.

Something tasty for everyone, from Indian-inspired tamarind pork varuval with butter briyani, tomatoes and chili raita ...

... to Chinese Hokkien mee, complete with crunchy pork lard. And there's still more on the menu, including the likes of pork meatballs and bacon-wrapped pork belly.

Chilean and Aussie wines make up the house-pouring selection.

Lots of hard liquor makes it hard to remember what we drank. Ermmm, whiskey?

If the live music isn't too loud, ask the service team whether Margaritas and Martinis are available (or sit at The Moon Bar's alfresco section, shielded from the sounds of the guitars).

The Moon Bar,
4, Jalan Medan Setia 2, Plaza Damansara, Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.
Open daily from 5 p.m., except Sundays.
