Antipasto Smile Aug 30, 2013

There were 2 variants to the Antipasto appetizer. In Italy, this was considered a light appetizer for them. The first variant of the Antipasto has peas, corn, olives, mozzarella cheese, sundried tomatoes and a slice of Buffalo cheese. The second only has sundried tomatoes, olives and buffalo cheese. A pretty decent yet flavourful appetizer. I personally prefer the first variant more.

Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs

 
Surprised? So am I. Big Hug Burger sells Swedish meatballs, similar to what you get in Ikea. As you know, Ikea is famous for their meatballs. However, what you get in Big Hug Burger is slightly different. The meatballs are made with 100% Australian beef, giving it the quality and taste it needs. The meatballs were really tender and soft, unlike what you get in Ikea. Furthermore, it wasn't even greasy! The sauce was light, but creamy and flavourful. Delightful! Not to mention, its priced similar to Ikea's meatballs.

Mario Beef Burger OK Jun 28, 2013   (Related Review)

Mario Beef Burger

Mario Beef Burger

 
The first bite I had, I could taste the freshness and flavours of the mushrooms. Surprisingly, it wasn't oily like a few of the other burger's I've tried. Its as if it was steamed or some sort. Both Mozarella and Cheddar cheese was used in the making of this burger. The beef patty was really tender and juicy. Best of all, it wasn't greasy! Truly felt healthier after eating this. Like my Grilled Salmon Burger, marinated cherry tomatoes and green lettuce was fresh and crisp. The sesame bun smells really good; it was also really soft but most importantly, able to hold the burger together. Loved it.

Chicago Rib House Christmas Menu Smile Dec 09, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook

About Chicago Rib House
The Chicago Rib House brings to Malaysia the legendary tradition of good old Chicago ribs, which is steeped in 70 years of history. Pioneered in 2010, the hip and fun American diner styled restaurant is famous for the pork ribs and all time American BBQ favourites, smoldered in secret homemade sauces. With the tagline 'Built on Love, Peace and Bacon Grease", their signatures include the World Famous Pork Ribs. An extensive mojito selection completes the all-American experience.

 
Peach Bellini (Alcoholic)

A serving of fresh peach blended with peach juice and sparkling wine. A combination so simple yet delicious. A great welcome drink indeed.

 
Christmas Berry Delight (Non-Alcoholic)

A cup of refreshing berry fizz. Unfortunately, this was my least favourite drink. Mainly due to the fact that it was a little diluted, I could barely taste anything. If only they'd add a little bit more 'berry-ness', it would have been great.

 
Mint Lemonade (Non-Alcoholic)

This was surprisingly, my favourite of all 3 drinks served. The drinks were served between intervals of meal as compared to everything immediately, which was something really thoughtful. The essence and scent of mint were really strong. Along with some lemonade, it was incredibly refreshing.

 
Crab and Cod Crostini

Savoury sweet seafood with creamy avocado grilled with Parmesan cheese on top of crispy olive oil toasted baguette topped with what I assume was Paprika powder. I really like the idea of this starter as it plays with 3 different levels of texture. From the hard and crispy baguette at the bottom to the chewy and refreshing avocado and finally to soft seafood spread. Squeeze in some lime and it will uplift the flavour, aroma and lightens the dish as well.

 
Pomegranate Salad

Fresh salad leaves and yellow zucchini toss with tangy sweet Pomegranate dressing; accompanied with feta cheese and honey roasted pecan nuts. An amazing combination of ingredients and flavour. The sweetness of the Pomegranate dressing and richness of the feta cheese compliments the salad leaves really well. Moreover, the additional honey roasted pecan nuts and pomegranate seeds enhanced the texture of the salad. A lovely salad that I will not hesitate to go back for.

 
Roasted Pork Belly Roulade

Note that this serving was meant for food tasting only. The original portion is 3 times larger. Wrapped and stuffed with sage infused apples, olives and chestnuts with a garden variety of roasted vegetables and potato tartan, accompanied with tangy sweet apple compote and red wine reduction.

To begin, the Roulade was incredibly well seasoned, tender and moist. It was a little chewy but I prefer it that way. The selection of roasted vegetables, mushrooms and potato tartan was well grilled and served as a suitable companion for the roulade. Overall, I just wish I had more.

 

 
Roasted Whole Turkey Leg

Marinated turkey leg, slow cooked and roasted with Thyme. Served with garden variety roasted vegetables and creamy mash potato; accompanied with cranberry jelly and classic brown sauce. Overall, it looks really appetizing as the composition and placement of the elements were pretty good.

Unfortunately, the turkey was a little too tough and dry compared to some I've tried in the past. I understand that turkeys are usually tougher and slightly dryer than chicken or beef, but this was a little too much. The creamy mash potatoes were well seasoned but lack in the overall consistency and smoothness.

 

 
Dry Rubbed Coffee Ribs (Pork)

Oven baked dry rub spiced baby back ribs with char-grilled glazed Coffee Sauce. Served with garden variety roasted vegetables and potato tartan. Interestingly, the ribs were first rubbed and marinated with spices before being placed on a grill. A Coffee Sauce glazing will then be added on to the ribs to enhance and uplift its flavours.

In conclusion, I really liked the outcome of this dish. I could smell the strong aroma of Coffee but was not overwhelmed by the taste of it. The balance of smokey, sweet, salty, 'coffee' and a hint of spiciness was a great compliment to the succulent, tender and juicy ribs. Highly recommended!

 
Pumpkin Tart

Roasted sweet pumpkin filling in tart pastry served with strawberry coulis topped with whipped cream. I normally hate pumpkin. They have this nasty and disgusting smell and taste which I cannot bare. Having said that, I do enjoy a good bowl of pumpkin soup. Similar concept, I hate pumpkin but the Pumpkin Tart served was actually pretty decent. I will not say I like it, but I will say I can accept it. I personally find it a little too sweet but I believe majority of people will find it just right.

Who doesn't love pizza? The cheese, the tomato bolognese sauce, the crust, all of it binded together as one. This pizza was actually supervised by a real Italian owner when it was being prepared. The chef had a 8 year Italian cuisine experience. I really like the thickness of the crust, it wasn't too thin nor too thick and best of all, it was consistent. The only thing that I find lacking was the amount of tomato bolognese sauce. I wished that there was more to give it that extra flavour. Cheese was a little too generous though.
