Hamky Panky, Fuku Fuku & Vom Fass @ Jaya Grocer, The Intermark

Returning to Jaya Grocer's new treasure trove of eateries at The Intermark, this time to check out Hamky Panky, Fuku Fuku & Vom Fass.

First up, Hamky Panky (have to love that name), an unabashedly porky stall at the Grocerant's non-halal section of its food hall, beside Lam's Kitchen & Sun Huat Kee (see August 30 entry).

 Sandwiches rank high among Hamky Panky's stars; customize your own, filling fresh focaccia with murderously massive slices of roast pork, cheddar cheese & BBQ sauce for only RM13.80.

 Ciabatta with German black forest ham, streaky bacon & honey mustard. Substantial in size, satisfying in flavor. Note: There's now also a Hamky Panky at Empire Gallery's Jaya Grocer.

 Hamky Panky serves a real whopper of a pork burger (RM19.80), saturated in savory juices.

 Virtue or vice? Opt for spinach salad or French fries to complement the burger.

 Prefer the food hall's halal zone? Try Fuku Fuku, affiliated to the enduring Fukuya restaurant.

 Fuku Fuku's offerings are basic for now; the focus might be steamed rice (served in bamboo baskets for dine-in customers), partnered with the likes of eel & soft-shell crab (RM28 nett).

Plenty of prepacked sushi, convenient for takeaway. Udon & soba are also available here.

 We still need liquor: Here's the third KL branch of the German-headquartered Vom Fass cask-to-customer business, dealing in spirits, vinegars & oils that are freshly decanted on purchase. The other two outposts are at Jason's Food Hall in Bangsar Shopping Center & 1 Mont Kiara Mall.

 Love this Nussino hazelnut liquor (RM33 for 200 ml). Other highlights here include plum liquor with Armagnac, various single malt whiskies, Italian-produced extra virgin olive oil infused with truffles, plus so much more. It'd be easy to go overboard with shopping.

    1. Melissa: heheh, everybody loves the name, ya (i do too!) :D and ya, a lot of attractions at this food court. roast pork sandwich is worthwhile for that price, and the sushi looks well-prepared, you're right :D

  11. All three are excitingly enticing, but the murderously massive slices of roast pork at HP looks a little puny laaaa :P

    1. Unkaleong: ooops, i forgot to confirm, but ya, i think they are, since they're linked to jaya grocer, and the supermarket is open everyday. heheh, am sure there'll be enough customers who want a porky sunday brunch to justify them staying open on weekends :D

  17. You can find me at Imbi Wt market almost every Thursday at 7am getting a pack of $5 or $10 of roast pork when the crispy layer is still warm and really cruncy. I can find many ways to eat it with but honestly, sandwitch... Why i did'nt think of that !

    1. Wong: oh ya, the great thing is that we can use roast pork in so many recipes! can have it with rice, noodles and even bread, heheh. the roast pork at imbi sounds great, i'd like to try it someday too! :D

  19. Is hamky panky crowded? I'm thinking of going there for lunch during class breaks, which is around 1 1/2 hours.

    1. Leng Jia Jie: it's quite crowded with office workers, i think, so might have to wait for at least 15 minutes for food. but 1.5 hours sounds like it's enough time =)
