Going Porky at The Pork Place

  • Sharebar

Staying in Puchong, I have always passed by Pork Place but whenever I asked Saucer to try it out with me, he was always either not in the mood or he didn’t want to eat meat.

Yummy!

One fine day though, he suggested that we should try it out. So we went there during Sunday night, to find that the place was pretty packed! Luckily there was a small table available for the two of us, so we started ordering away.

The restaurant was brightly lit, with clean and straightforward furnishing. The walls and floor are also at their raw form of bricks and cement, giving it a very original look. Interestingly, Pork Place is not only a restaurant, but a butchery too! There’s a small section within the restaurant that is enclosed and sells pork meat.

Before long, our first order arrived. It was a plate of Home Made Meatballs Linguine. Of course, by meatballs, I mean pork meatballs. My first impression was that the portion was not very big, perhaps just nice for a female eater. Also, the smell of pork from the meatballs was pungent, so one might either like it or hate it. The meatballs were considerably large, springy, tender and a delight to eat. I actually found the combination of the savoury meatballs with  the soury tomato-based linguine a pretty enjoyable dish.

The star of the night though, was Bacon and Cheese Burger. Also known as the signature dish of Pork Place, this burger has a thick layer of homemade pork patty, a slice of cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and a piece of bacon. Again, the smell of pork was pretty strong, while the bacon gave it an aromatic touch.

The dish came with a side of salad and a substantial amount of fries.

Of course, what was most important was really the pork patty. It was considerably thick, juicy and tender with traces of melt-in-your-mouth fats embedded within. The edges and outer layers were grilled until slightly charred, giving it a nice finish, but it was a tad too salty in taste.

Also, eating the burger together with the pork patty, cheese and bacon which are all savoury might be a little overwhelming for some, but I quite enjoyed it. The trick is you have to eat it together with the bread or you might find it too salty for your liking.

The last dish was ordered t be shared, since we were having a rather huge appetite that night. :P It was called  Roasted Pork Sandwich in the menu, but what came out didn’t look like a sandwich at all! It was, in fact a wrap!

The roasted pork was smoked and roasted, giving it a smoky finish while maintaining its moist. However, I still thought the whole combination of it was on the bland side, while the accompanying sauce was light. I guess it’s supposed to be one of the ‘healthier’ choices in the menu?

If you ask me, I would say just go with the Bacon and Cheese burger! It’s the best among the three dishes that I tried that night, and yes, I would probably return again for that! ;) Oh, I also spotted a dish of Sausage platter in the “Today’s Special” menu, so I could try that one too!

    Hmm, not the most pleasant of experience eh?
    Strong, pungent pork taste?! That’s new.
    Maybe gamey or ‘sou’ is it?

    Actually pork burgers are quite easy to make. Then you can control how much salt you want to put into your patty.
