Pig Out Cafe_1

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

Roast pork belly, 200 irresistible grams of meat marinated overnight and served with chunky-cut carrots, potatoes and applesauce (RM18 only). Pig Out Cafe_2

Cafe owner Seet Yan, who launched Pig Out after months of running a catering service, prepares limited portions of this roast pork, so to be safe, call ahead to reserve. Pig Out Cafe_3

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.Pig Out Cafe_4

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti bolognese with pork meatballs (RM16). Servings are generous; our only quibble is that some of these recipes can seem heavy on the salt. Pig Out Cafe_5

Salad

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.Pig Out Cafe_6

Cottage Pie

But accidents can happen: This cottage pie (RM7) emerged burnt at the bottom, with overly charred minced pork beneath the mashed potatoes.Pig Out Cafe_7

Burger

Redemption is nevertheless near: Pig Out’s pork burger (RM16), topped with enoki mushrooms, might well exceed certain expectations …

.. thanks to its luscious patty, the polar opposite of so many other blandly dry pork patties. With a little more fine-tuning, this could become one of the Klang Valley’s best pork burgers.Pig Out Cafe_9

Trial Opening

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.Pig Out Cafe_10Pig Out Cafe_11
