A possible haunt for meat-lovers, particularly those who favor live music to invigorate their meals.
Poodoo's menu is primarily a pork-worshiping one, plowing through everything from enjoyable slow-roasted pulled pork sandwiches with streaky bacon (RM20.88) to Carlsberg beer-marinated pork chops & double-boiled pork trotters.
Plenty of inventive pub grub too, like cheddar cheese-stuffed onions fried in bacon-infused batter & breaded luncheon meat sliced into French-fries-style strips.
BBQ dishes are also a specialty, including Aussie grass-fed rib-eye (RM34 for 200 grams).
Grilled lamb shoulders & salmon steaks are available as well, served with sauces such as brandy pepper, wild mushroom, pico de gallo & spicy piri piri.
Poodoo's pretty proud of its sausages, which range from bratwurst to cumberland, Italian herbed to English Oxford, coupled with creamy mashed potatoes.
Not on the official menu, but worth requesting: Test tubes filled with all manner of liquor ...
... to be combined & transformed into a high-potency cocktail that might make the room spin.
For less intrepid guzzlers, wine is offered, together with lots of beer & regular cocktails.
Poodoo's a two-level outlet: Its bar with a performance stage is situated above its bistro.
Metro Mall, Jalan Metro Pudu 2, Fraser Business Park, Kuala Lumpur
Bistro opens 11am-3pm & 5pm-11pm; bar opens 430pm-2am, except Sundays
