It was a random night at Ipoh when Jason suggested this restaurant with huge portion. Normally I don't fancy of these kind of restaurants knowing that the quality might be a bit off to compromise with quantity for reasonable price.
Yet whatever that can pass Jason's (the picky Ipohian) tongue test usually turned out to be not bad.
The hopping kangaroo with Aussie wording certainly helped those who may not understand the meaning of Oz as a slang for Australia.
A mix of Australia style between cowboy and tribal, decorated with koala bear and lots of roosters.
As the theme suggests, it's not hard to notice the cowboys (wearing the iconic hat) taking orders and even serving food.
Coke with Float (Chocolate) RM4.90 (Left)
Honey Dew Fruit Juice RM4.00 (Right)Gold Coast Pork Schnitzel RM15Garlic pork fillet pan fried served with ratatouille sauce on a bed of tomato rice
While ratatouille means stewed vegetable dish and schnitzel is a boneless meat that fried along with flour, beaten eggs and bread crumbs, they've made a perfect combination of crisp and moist.
As a pork lover, I'm glad to see this on the menu because of its porky taste but I doubt its meat texture for such kind of fried steak as it might go very dry and ended up munching shoe leather. This schnitzel had no such problem, but it could be very risky in the wrong hand.Outback Roast Chicken RM17.90in Herbs Bread Sauce with German Potato Salad, Caesar Salad and Onion Rings as side dishes.
It was good: chicken was tender, caesar salad done right with fresh romaine lettuce and crunchy crouton, skin potato salad with onion, crispy yet not too oily onion rings and even a bed of potato with herbs beneath the roasted chicken to absorb the remaining essence. Perhaps a wee bit more seasoning to make this dish a memorable one?
Also, it would be better to have more side dish varieties for those who do not fond of potato.
A restaurant that I would see myself returning.
