Pig Out Cafe at Parklane, Kelana Jaya: Restaurant Review
Gettin’ piggy with it at this cafe that opened this week, promising a primrose path of pork in Kelana Jaya’s fledgling Parklane commercial center.
The marquee attraction: Pork Belly
Grilled pork chop
Grilled pork chop with garlic sauce, coleslaw and creamy-flavorsome mashed potatoes (RM16). Pig Out’s food features a home-cooked feel, not a restaurant’s polish; this is honest fare, without lofty ambitions of revolutionizing the cafe industry.
Spaghetti and Meatballs
Caesar salad with own-smoked bacon (RM12, prices are nett for now). It’s like eating at a favorite aunt’s house or at a potluck where friends spent days poring over the menu and pouring every ounce of energy into making each dish.
Redemption is nevertheless near: Pig Out’s pork burger (RM16), topped with enoki mushrooms, might well exceed certain expectations …
Pig Out is in a trial opening stage (offering 20 percent discounts off its already-low prices), with a limited menu and insufficient staff members to cope with crowds; be patient if your food takes time to surface. This has the potential to evolve into a crowd-pleasing landmark.
