Located in the relatively new building called The Scott Garden along Old Klang Road (where Tesco is), is a neighbourhood and friendly pub & grub place called Tom, Dick & Harry’s. I have heard plenty of good things about this restaurant which first operated at TTDI, and when it started the second outlet so close to home, I asked Saucer to give it a try too. We were there for dinner one night just after the rain (it was raining quite often last month!) so we chose to sit outside. Dining al-fresco is nice when the air is cool and crisp, with soft breeze blowing to your face, provided that you’re lucky and there are no smokers around you. Well we were indeed lucky, or perhaps we were early. So we sat outside while waiting for dinner to be served.
Fancy Double patty of pork?
Saucer felt like downing a pint of beer that night after a long day at work, so he ordered a pint of Hoegaarden. It was served chilled with the perfect temperature, almost good enough to drown away the stress.

Perfect to cure the blues
For starters, we chose the Six Pigs in a Blanket, partly due to the cute name but mostly due to the pork bacon. We thought these were addictive and good! The bacon was fried to a crispy and slightly charred finish, while the pork sausages were bouncy and juicy. We could totally polish this with a pint of beer for supper.

Best snacks with beer
My main course was the Pork Burger, apparently one of the signature dishes at TDH. I was pleasantly surprised to see that two huge patties were sandwiched in between the buns instead of just one. The two patties, tomatoes and lettuce, topped with a bull’s eye egg completed the whole ensemble, making it a very satisfying meal.

I enjoyed the patties that had a nice glazed layer on the outside and tender meat on the inside. They were sufficiently flavourful while the egg (as always) made everything better. Not to forget was the huge amount of fries served on the side! Portion was generous and the fries certainly made for good snacks while we continued hanging out in the cool breezy night.

Juicy and meaty pork burger
Saucer tried something more unconventional in a pub, a steak. I guess he was in the mood for steak so he ordered the Dick’s Favourite Steak anyway. I thought it was a little overcooked and the meat texture was a tad too soft, almost mushy. Thankfully what it lacked in texture, it sort of made up for in taste. It was quite nicely marinated with a moist interior, and it went well with the brown sauce. But would I order it again? Perhaps not.

All in all, I’d say we had a good dinner, a satisfying one in fact, with great beer, great snacks and of course wonderful company. It was one of the rare al-fresco meals that didn’t leave us sweaty or smelly in the end. The great news? There’s no tax whatsoever! Whatever price that you see on the menu is the nett price that you pay. We need more restaurants like this.
