The Little Hoof @ Puchong

One of the more attractive-looking eateries to open in Puchong in recent times. Plus, its irresistibly cute name ensured that we'd head here for a visit.

The Little Hoof calls itself a "pink, red & white meat restaurant;" this is a carnivore's cafe, complete with chicken, beef, pork & lamb.

The house burger, stuffed with a pork chop, proves adequately juicy & flavorsome. Not brilliant, but not bad.

Not a fan of burgers? Pork ribs, pasta & even tortillas are available too.

Still, there's space for improvement; the New Zealand lamb (RM40 for 250 gram) is very tender but gamier than expected.

Wine is available by the glass for RM15, but when the white emerges at room temperature, it's clear that there's a price to pay for the lower price.

Bonus Puchong stop: Chuck's Little Cottage in Setiawalk, for potently cool cocktails.

Fruity fun: Alabama Slammer (orange juice, vodka, southern comfort, gin, amaretto), Applejack (apple juice, grenadine, brandy) & Salty Chihuahua (grapefruit juice, lemon juice, vodka & salt).

The Little Hoof,
Jalan Persiaran Puteri 1, Bandar Puteri Puchong. Same row as Bumbu Bali.
Open for lunch & dinner. Tel: 03-8066-6626

  4. The new zealand lamb looks good! 250gm for Rm 40 should be reasonable, probably good for sharing too

  7. Ahh what a shame the wine was not chilled! Plus room temperature in Malaysian climate is not really the most ideal for wine eh!
