Going Oink at S.wine Cafe
Tuesday, 24th April 2012 - We arranged for a quick dinner and drinks with 2 friends from the oil & gas industry (friends with big salaries ;D). YB and YL were quick to suggest S.Wine cafe at Publika, and well, since I didn't have any better ideas, I went along with it.
You see, our breakfast experience the other time (our first time at the cafe) was not over the top fantastic, especially for the price they were charging.
I anticipated loads of mashed avocado on my bread, I guess.
Ok, never mind that.
The beans were a rip off. They tasted like plain baked beans from a can, with pulled pork added to it. What's so Mexican about baked beans, I kept asking YB.
All I can say is that the sausage was good. And that was it.
Fast forward to Tuesday.
We heard rave reviews of their lunch and dinner items so we thought we had better go back there and give it a second chance.
It was creamy with a hint of smoky porky bits (oh gawd, I am not a food review writer, ok, so do forgive me!) which was far different from a standard carbonara dish. The prosciutto, however, was more like roasted pork i.e. siew yuk. Hmm.
Nevertheless, I'd say it's a MUST TRY.
I can't describe it.
The patty was juicy and tender and a delight to the palate. I ate slowly, savouring each bite.
It could have been the barbeque sauce or the melted cheese which added flavour but I swear, you MUST TRY.
(I have never been this adamant before!)
But the fries were no biggie.
VK had the Hainanese Pork Chops (RM23.90) which I didn't get a picture off as he dived right in once the plate hit the table. He said it was not too shabby.
As the place is small and tight, it's not conducive for old friends to chill out and chat. Instead, we moved to Overtime for beer after dinner before calling it a night.
Address: Tucked in the non-halal section of Ben's Independent Grocer, lower ground of Publika.
