After hearing promising reviews of this porkielicious place in Sunway, a family diner with affordable prices, we headed here for lunch. The crowd was thin as we were early but by the time we left, the place was filled up nicely.
We were seated near all the grilling action where we could see the chef flipping slabs of ribs and chunks of meat.
We started off lightly with the Grilled Bacon Salad (RM23.90), a salad of lettuce, matchstick carrot strips, cucumber and tomatoes with cooked bacon and a honey mustard dressing. It was pretty alright and the greens were still fresh and crisp to bite.
We also had a Sausage Platter (RM26.90) to share amongst the group. I thought we had 2 sausages of 2 different makes at first but later found out that there were 4 types : pork chorizo, chicken chorizo, pork oriental and spicy Hungarian. The chorizos were nice but I liked the oriental one (like Taiwanese sausages) and the Hungarian one more, despite it not being spicy to me at all. But it did have a distinctive flavour to it.
The Grilled Pork Belly (RM21.90) arrived before the mix platter and at first bite, I like how juicy and succulent the pork belly was. Thanks to the melting fats. Haha. But one of us complained of an overwhelming gamey, porky taste which happens sometimes in pork dishes. But I still liked my slice, which was well marinated, with what the chefs here called the “pekin sauce”. Also enjoyed the mashed potatoes and wished for a bigger scoop. Hehe.
The Mixed Platter (RM23.90) is a dish combining the best of both worlds as it offers both the pork belly and ribs. We should have just stayed with this choice instead of just the pork belly as it 1 1/2 portions of pork belly got a bit too heavy for us in the end. And I believe that they use the same marinade for the pork belly so it’s matter of preference in having solely one item or two. The ribs were slightly sweeter in taste due to the maripur sauce they use but still tender without falling into pieces. And even though the ribs were good, I think I prefer Cagayan’s version. Yet there’s no denying that the pork belly is the best in BellyGood and apparently you can ask to have the fat trimmed off for a healthier option.
To end the meal on a sweet note, we had a Mocha Ice cream cake (RM8.90) and Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice-Cream (RM12.90). The ice-cream used is from Movenpick which complimented the warm brownie well and helped balance out the flavours.
Service was quite friendly and prices very reasonable. Even though I found the food enjoyable and tasty, I felt that after one two many dishes, the sauces started to taste the same. Hence, I would suggest sharing the porky dishes and ordering other non-pork dishes such as their pastas and salads to make sure you don’t overdo it.
