SOP which stands for Same Old Place, is one western bar-cum-restaurant that seemingly serves up a pretty wide range of toothsome hot dishes, apart from being more familiarly known for its premium array of exclusive beers, liqueurs and whisky labels among lounge aficionados.Embarked stylishly like any other gastropub with the option to dine in comfortably within air-conditioned enclave or al fresco choice, SOP kitchen is currently helmed by Chef Hong together with a team of resourceful crews like
Served with conventional continental selections like bacons, flavorfully sautéed mushrooms and smooth scrambled egg, it’s certainly a hearty grubs offered at an unbeatable price! Minus out the slightly briny eggs, the toasts are great, crispy and buttery, just like any homey breakie that you could look forward to, accompanied with some healthy garden salad.WILD MUSHROOM SOUP (MYR 13.90)
If you are looking for that thick and chunky bite of creamy consistency, you might want to give this a pass, unless soupy type is your cup of tea, or soup, in this case (= Nevertheless, the funghi aroma is tastefully palatable. SEAFOOD AGLIO OLIO (MYR 23.90)
Extra virgin olive oil, chilli, garlic, tiger prawn, mussels, clams, fish and scallops.
Pasta is done al dente and springy to the tastebud alongside some zesty spices and fresh seafood accompaniment. CRISPY PORK KNUCKLE (MYR 67.90- APPRX 1 KG)
Pork knuckle served with granny’s mashed potato, Bavarian coleslaw, homemade Bavarian sauerkraut and black pepper sauce. An irresistible meaty cut that boasts a mighty 1000-gram serving of pork knuckle that takes centre stage between some truly delish homemade mashed potato and house own made sauerkraut- which we think would suit most local taste bud here compared to the traditional German recipe. The sourish pickled cabbage comes lightly tart with hint of vinaigrette-like fermented aroma and brilliantly paired with the peppery gravy. ROSEMARY LAMB RACK SERVED WITH MASHED POTATO (MYR 28.90)
Juicy lamb rack grilled to right tenderness served alongside mushy potatoes. Would be better if the meat is much more thoroughly marinated with spice to subdue the gamey taste, unless you are the type who enjoys the natural lamb meat flavours. CHOCOLATE LAVA (MYR 17.90)
Diners should not leave SOP without this noteworthy dessert, which is extremely well
executed with the prerequisite of dense from the inside to the softer exterior. The molten chocolate filling literally melts out liberally upon cutting in and goes remarkably good with the vanilla scoop. The exterior texture of this chocolate lava here is tad special as I find it bit thin and flaky, hence tastes light to the tastebud without feeling overly sinful. Thumbs up! Complete the meal fantastically with the much celebrated cheers of the day! SAPPORO (MYR 23- HALF PINT)
Sapporo- the oldest beer brand in Japan, was first brewed in Sapporo, Japan in 1876.
With lush use of aroma hops, Sapporo Premium has an amazingly crisp taste, refreshing flavor and refined bitterness, to leave a clean finish. Whether in iconic Silver Can that is long loved by American fans, or on tap, Sapporo premium can be enjoyed on any occasion. Sapporo has undoubtedly earned its place as No.1-selling Asian beer in the United States. BITBURGER (MYR 23- HALF PINT)
Germany’s No.1 Draft Beer brand ~ “Bitte ein Bit”Note first the bright, fresh golden color and rich frothy head so typical of this elegant Pilsner beer. Its refined herbal notes are delicately poised, followed by a nutty and honeyed aftertaste. The overall impression of this gently sparkling beer is one of deep harmony, with the unmistakable bitterness of the hops balanced and contained by an agreeable, mellow sweetness in the body. ABSINTHE MOJITO (MYR 32 ++)
More than a shot of absinthe, rum, brown sugar, lime wedge with 8 to 10 mint leaves and crushed ice. So much so I always love my Mint Mojito, be it virgin or alcoholic based, this creative twist of absinthe with the ubiquitous mojito has taken the crown over and touted as the crème de la crème in my personal cocktail gastro-media. It’s so much more beguiling and tastefully appealing. Again, it could be a girl’s thing for it comes with tad sweetness, just like how I enjoy my sweet wine (=KG is so boldly inspiring! Much gracias!
