While shopping in MegaMall last weekend, we decided to have a late lunch. Late...becoz the movie Ironman ended at past 2pm. At that hour, we wanted to have something meaty...porky would be good, hehe! While coming down the escalator, we spotted this joint and quickly hopped in.

The Mixed Grill (RM27.90) was a natural choice as I wanted to try out the different kinds of meat offered. There was 1 piece of BBQ pork rib, 1 piece grilled lambchop, 1 pork sausage and 3-4 small pieces of grilled pork. The pork rib was fantastic - very well-marinated and extremely tender. Unfortunately there was only ONE small piece! The lambchop and sausage were OK but the pork pieces were a bit tough & a tad overcooked. All these were served with some brown sauce, 3 pieces of carrot and 1 floret each of broccoli and cauliflower.

LL had the Crispy Roast Pork Knuckle set (28.90) - came with a drink and tomato soup. When the dish was served, we were disappointed with the meagre portion. For a pork knuckle dish, we had expected the usual generous portion but this was not the case. The skin was certainly very crispy and taste-wise, no complaint. This was served with the brown sauce, 2 pieces carrots, 1 floret each of broccoli & cauliflower each and about 2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes.

This was the Tomato Soup served with the set - rather bland...

Two walls of the restaurant were lined with shelves and shelves of imported Lemonade - in all kinds of flavours!

I think customers dining at this restaurant would be happier if they had just served more portions of vegetables instead of just 1 floret each of broccoli & cauliflower only! By throwing in a few more pieces, it doesn't cost much and certainly would have added value to the meal!
Tsk tsk - sometimes I just marvel at some of these restauranteurs' stinginess and how, by saving those few pieces of vege or side dishes, they actually project a negative image and somehow customers would feel kinda "short-changed". Come on much would a few pieces of vege eat into their profits, right??

Hey tummythoz, nice to see u here again! :)
You are right, the plates looked darn bare...portions were really meagre! And we saw bags & bags of carrots/brocolli/cauliflower in their glass cabinets there!
