Sausage & Ribs Shack @ Taman Midah, Cheras

Casually carnivorous; not a bad stop on weekends when meat cravings are most acute.

This Shack's name & food are straight to point; start with a plate of mixed sausages, 350 grams for RM27. The restaurant makes its own, sufficiently juicy & flavorsome for a satisfactory chew, & even supplies them to other outlets (though we've been asked to not say which ones).

BBQ spice-rubbed pork ribs, RM55 for a full rack (the portion pictured is half), reasonably tasty too & nicely roasted. These are regular ones; the restaurant also sometimes serves promotional Iberico ribs, similar to what we've had at Section 14's Burger & Ribs, another suburban eatery.

Other fleshy fare here includes the likes of lamb burgers, chicken pies & beef pizzas. Sausage & Ribs Shack opens mainly for dinner on weekends. Call to check; reservations are recommended, especially for the ribs, which require advance preparation.

Wine is not available, but customers can bring their own with no corkage charged.

  4. was just there yesterday! bought home some sausages too!
    Had the ribs, don't really like it - probably cos of the sweet marinate. But i liked the garlic and cheese sausage. didnt manageto try the burger - too full! my friend bought wine too!

    1. Rebecca: ooo, it'll be interesting to see what recipes you might devise with their sausages ... or maybe simple's best, and just cook it as it is, heheh :D yeah, actually now that you reminded me, the flavor of the sauce for the ribs was quite strong and savory. maybe they should tone it down. but i'm glad they allow wine to be brought for no extra charge, heh :D
