Poodoo @ Metro Pudu

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.

  7. Whenever we drive towards Jalan Sg Besi, we always see the big sign for Poodoo. How's the steak at that price?

    1. Baby Sumo: worth it for that price, i think. below RM50 for that 200 grams would be fair, i guess. it was a bit too chewy for me to totally recommend, but then again, not as tough as beef at some other places, heh =)

  8. Interesting! A lot of places are opening up in the Pudu area. I hear BIG is opening a bar there too, but the name escapes me...it's meant to be a traveler's bar with some food that overseas the police station.
