Eat Drink KL: Mayfair

Monday, November 29, 2010


Another week, another pork paradise surfaces in the Klang Valley.

Mayfair isn't the most innovative restaurant, but its menu is filled with crowd-pleasers like this pork sausage & bacon pizza. Gooey goodness, ideal for snacking. Each generously topped slice will likely vanish from the table before everyone realizes it. That's the power of cheese.

Char-grilled, bone-in pork chop with berries & poached apple. Gargantuan enough to placate masculine appetites. But the ladies might fall under the spell of its sweet, fruity flavors.

Hickory-smoked pork ribs. Could've been more tender, but sufficiently hearty for at least two people to share and tasty enough for all of them to lick their fingers afterwards. Me? I loved the surprisingly juicy shoestring fries.

One of the better pork knuckles around, with spectacularly crisp skin and succulent, savory flesh. All the accompaniments _ soft, fluffy chunks of roast potato, creamy apple sauce & sauerkraut _ were flawless. An indisputable steal at only 45 ringgit.

Refreshing fruit liquors: Bol's Apricot Brandy & Marie Bizard Parfait Amour.
