Anne Elizabeth @ Cheras

This deli-restaurant helmed by husband-&-wife team Jacob & Sandra is worth a visit for carnivores in Cheras. Make your selection from a broad variety of meat & seafood that's on display, then have the kitchen cook a protein-packed meal for you.

Our best bets here are all about pork: The smoked back bacon is fabulous - thickly sliced, irreproachably tender & bombarded with savoury flavour (RM17.90 per glorious piece). The pork belly (RM15.20) is a pleasure too - exactly what we were hoping for when we ordered it. To complete the hearty platter, try a warm bacon salad (RM6.90) on the side to balance out the meat.

There's something for everyone - if you're going vegetarian, Anne Elizabeth serves a cranberry salad that's brimming with many, many more berries than expected (RM6.90) & a creamy-hot roasted tomato soup (RM9) that's clearly not from a can.

 No scarcity of sausages, constructed with pork or lamb (a bratwurst costs RM8.50) - juicy enough, but probably not the stars of this show. Other reasonable options for a warm meal include spicy pasta aglio olio loaded with lamb shoulder (RM18.80), an interesting fish gratin heaped in a claypot, crowned with a carb-overload of mashed potatoes (RM24.90), & portobello mushrooms stuffed with bacon & oozing with cheese (RM12.90). Bring your own wine; the corkage charge is RM30 or less.

Anne Elizabeth (trivia: the name refers to two Catholic saints)

  2. I am getting hungry looking at your photos, Sean! As far as canned soup goes, there are a couple of soups that are thicker than the salty, liquidy usual soups like Campbell's. Habitant pea soup is great, and Knorr (the one that is a powder in a package)...both of these soups are thick, tasty and filling. :)

  3. I'm still cracking my head to pinpoint the exact location of this restaurant... Quite familiar with Taman Segar but haven't come here for ages so memories failed me :( maybe look into google map later. Anything porky deserves coming to... Haha

    2. Oh... I'd been to Venezia twice. Someone took over or the owner changed concept😊😇?

    4. Leo: it's kinda near Leisure Mall ... one of the shop-house rows, but far at the other end, maybe a bit too far to walk from Leisure Mall :)

    5. Ulric: ooo, it's a completely new set of owners for this round, i think :)

    6. The Location is diagonally opposite Petronas, Taman Segar, 5th Mile, Jalan Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. The Restaurant is on the right as you turn left into Jalan Manis 4, Taman Segar, 5th Mile, Jalan Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. Have been there once when it was still Venezia. Must go & try again. Just opposite where I am staying.

  4. Does that mean the first plate costs RM17.90+15.20+6.90? They do look glorious. The porky stuff prices seem reasonable but then they don't come with any sides like potatoes, eggs or bread to make a complete dish! ;)

    1. Contact.ewew: your calculation is accurate, heheh :D good point about the sides ... though come to think of it, i kinda prefer it this way, cos very often in a platter, i don't necessarily want bread or some of the sides that come on a platter ;)

  5. All the pork dishes sound yummy! There are really a lot of berries in that salad, very healthy, hehe.

  7. I know it's a meat place, but that cranberry salad and soup would probably be my first orders. :-)

  9. The sausages and bacon definitely look good, the supporting casts of salad & tomato soup are equally inviting too!
