The Speak @ Bangsar & Online Pub @ Damansara Kim

On the hunt for wild boar? That's among The Speak's highlights, served as a thick, tender curry with bread for dunking. There's much to sample at this friendly Telawi sports bar - a something-for-everyone selection of chilli chicken wings (in Spicy or Stupidly Hot), Scotch eggs, a feta-olive salad, chapati with dal, vegetarian curry puffs & egg bhurji. Decent food at fair prices.

 Spicy shredded wild boar seems to have carved a permanent spot on Online Pub's menu since the 1990s (you'll also find wild boar sandwiches, wild boar fried rice & wild boar pasta here). This neighbourhood hangout has long dabbled in dietician-defying delights like lard-loaded Hokkien mee, deep-fried pork belly, vindaloo fried rice, & 'devils on a demon's back' (bacon-wrapped pork sausages). Prices have steadily spiralled over the decades (a corn beefed sandwich for RM19?), but everything else feels like a time warp when you enter, complete with hair metal performers & posters of circa-1980s Sting & Phil Collins.
