Ever since the discovery of The Eighth Avenue at Publika by random, this place had became one of my regular place. No doubt that they serve pretty good food for an affordable price. With 15 months of operation, The Eight Avenue had recently launch a new menu 2016.
The Eighth Avenue menu
Still one of their main signature as Angles and Demons is still staying strong in the menu. @ RM 21.90, smoked salmon wrapped in juicy melon and bacon wrapped prunes. This is my first time having prunes top with bacon, taste is pretty unique to me and follow with a bite of smoke salmon to give it a juicy sweet fruity end. White wine/ Hendriks classic would be ideal for this pairing.
Lychee Pork Poppers @ RM 28.90 – Deep fried lychee stuff with mince pork. A confusion in your mind on the first bite as you get a sweet lychee taste then got hit with different flavours after that. Very interesting combination and should give it a try. Eat it while it is hot.
Braised Pork Cheeks @ RM 35.90 – prepared with red wine and served with truffle mash is one of a killer dish that gives you the little satisfaction. Eat it one bite with soft pork cheeks and the nice truffle taste of mash with berry at the side and a bit dip of their brown pepper sauce do give you a explosion of flavour in your mouth.
with a little infuse of local taste, Oink Oink Samble is quite interesting too as you will get the little thick creamy coated flavour on the spaghetti yet a hint of sambal spicy after taste is quite noteble. Nice combination of flavour. @ RM 29.90 – You will find some Pork Slices in it too.
For a direct hit into your mouth especially when you have beer, then Mission Chilli A-con-Plished (Pork) with an option for Chicken too. @ RM 26.90 – Mexican inspired pizza, pork chilli, pickeld onion and topped with crushed nachos. Its one of the simplest and tasty food. Love the thin crust too.
Something simple yet flavourful is this Taco About It @ RM 22.90. Simple food and pair with their Hendrinks or beer, is just the right way to go for this dish.
Beer Marinated Pork Ribs @ RM 53.90 – marinated in 8 hours beer and other secret ingredients. Love the marination flavour and however the meat might be slightly tough but it is still acceptable. Squeezing the lime on top enhance the marinated seasoning on the top.
Pan Grilled Beef Tenderloin @ RM 55.90 – 8oz of juicy beef, filled with chunky truffle mash potato, grilled egg plant, sauteed green bean, onion rings, fusion black pepper sauce. Ordered my in Medium rare and turns out to be good as love my meat with a little ooze of blood when cut on it. Dip into their mash and special sauce is indeed a great one. Red wine or their new Hendricks classic is a good pairing.
If you love some home cooking stew, then this 8th Hour Stew – Cooked with love and mixed with enoki mushrooms, quial eegs and side of rice @ RM 28.90 will satisfy our home cook taste bud. Gravy is slightly creamier as per compare to last round I had.
The name Karate Piggy Chop is indeed give you a karate in your palate. @ RM 44.90 – Grilled pork chop on the bone that marinated with fresh herbs, rub with old fashion potato. Like how the marination on top and it is not easy to cook this pork meat yet they have done it perfectly. A little pink on the meat that did not overcook it yet the seasoning on the top is not overpowering. Pairs well. – Recommended
Tiramissyou @ RM 24.90
Creme Brulee @ RM 18.90. A classic dessert where the burnt sugar on the top crack easily and the egg white taste is a little prominent but blends well with it.
With the owner of the restaurant is not a alcohol drinker and he had been introduce by one of his friend to try Hendriks Gin. Since the first try he had fell in love with this drink and he and his mixologist had created a mini series of Hendricks Code (Eight Avenue Specialty) is their new specialty. We started off by trying Cucumber Spritz @ RM 45.90. A classic drink on how Hendrinks should be first tested.
The Eighth Avenue Next is indeed the Boss’s Favourite o r his own signature. Pump with lemon, mint, pomegranate seeds and top with slices of cucumber ribbon. With the little enhancement, it do chage the drink to a little fruity and a hint of sourness from pomegranate. Great drink! @ RM
About Thyme is a drink where it is to challenge on your palate. You get to taste a roller coaster journey from 5 spice, thyme and soda water. @ RM 45.90
This is definitely going to be girls favourite. Berry Kiss (coming soon). Filled with some blueberries, lemon and soda. So easy to drink.
Their Hendricks cocktail are slightly stronger in alcohol which I like.
The Eighth Avenue cocktail menu, this was introduce to us as Blue Ivy from Flirtatious 20 handcrafted premium cocktails where this is also a girls drink. Slightly creamy, milky and you do not feel the alcoholic level, but the after taste is quite prominent. @ RM 30.90
