Its been a while since you get some food which is umami. Hungry Bacon at Uptown Damansara in PJ is surprisingly one of them. An eatery run by husband and wife along with some of their family recipe is something to look after.
AS the name says, bacon as this restaurant is all about PORK!
A cosy space for family and friends gathering. So are you a hungry bacon, stress bacon? Menu is not large but good enough for us to hunt. I was shared by the introductory of the menu and below are some of their signatures we ordered.
This is indeed very intersting when it was serve onto the table. Bacon Cones – stuffed with bacon chilli con carne & topped with sour cream , cheese sauce, pico de galo, & Jalapenos.
Creatively they presented it in a cones and if you do not realize it like my friends, they thought its actually a cone till I said no, its bacon wrap and perfectly baked till crispy. the flavors of this is burst with overwhelming flavors. I was told that this is their mini version of their signature best seller Nachos. One of a entree that certainly worth to order.
Definitely one of a buddy for beer.
Bacon Lolipops , Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken drumettes on mayonnaise & bbq sauce. Slight twist from the classic to give you a layer of crips and porkie taste wrap over drumettes.Wild Boar Peratel , served with white bread and papadoms.
This is also a dish worth for you to discover. Eating itself without any sides, the flavour might be too strong. Best advise to go along with its toasted bread that turns the flavour well balance. First eat might be hit with strong flavours of spices and saltiness however with bread just balance that out. Love it serve in claypot as it still grill abit along the way. We endjoyed some of the burnt edges
This is not your usual Nasi Kerabu. This is one of their signature Nasi Kerabu with babi percik, blue pea flower rice with solok lada, salted egg, fresh ulam, fish cracker, budu, and sambal belacan.
Beware when you pour in the sauces. It is highly advise to pour in bits by bits to suits your palate. If you pour all into the plate, the taste will be too overpowering. After addin the sauces, mix well on the rice. The best is the fresh pork lard that is added that gives you a nice balance of crips, oil fragrant and herbs. A nice plate of piggy.
Pork Burger with Bacon , 180 gram pork patty, bacon, lettuce, tomato, cheese, caramelize onions, served with US potato fries. patty is grill nicely that did not overcook it. Soft and juicy while the cheddar gives the hint of saltiness it needed. NIce and well balance.
Mighty Tomahawk is only available limited portions a day. If you are looking for something unusual, then this is another dish you can hit after. Brined 48hours and lightly smoked then, slow grill to ensure the juiciness of the meat.
As you cut thru the meat, you know its soft and juicy. Each bite is even better if you put some garlic and the sauce on top with hint of smokiness, It gives another level of flavours.
Ending our meals with high note as I have less expectation of this. Most of the people overcooked it till that the lava of chocolate is not Lava’ish.
Chocolate Lava , served with 40 licks vanilla ice cream. Love the bitterness and pair well with the ice cream.
Great start for new discovery of restaurant and certainly will come back to try some of other items in the menu, one of a nice fusion western food in PJ can aim for.
