"Porcine and divine..."
If you’re familiar with the story of the Three Little Pigs you’ll know that when he arrived at the house made of bricks the story went something like this: “Let me in, let me in,” cried the wolf. “Or I’ll huff and I’ll puff till I blow your house in!” “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin,” said the three little pigs. So he huffed and puffed and huffed and puffed but couldn’t blow the third pig’s house down. And the pigs lived happily ever after.
At Hoofed however, though it’s made of bricks and even has a dome ceiling made of bricks, the wolf must have found a way in because this is one porkified menu. Pigs here are served up on a wooden board for dinner. It is also a chilled out spot that is a great place to kick back with friends and indulge in a great meal.
"We wanted to create something with a neighbourhood feel that serves good food and wine and we wanted to focus mainly on pork because there aren't many restaurants that have an almost full pork menu. We have a whole theme surrounding it with the decor including pictures of pigs," says Ernest Ong, one of the owners of Hoofed. "We chose this area because we run Tom, Dick and Harry's downstairs which is a pub concept and it was convenient to use the second floor for something else."
As evidenced by last year's Favourite 50 list, we here at FriedChillies really love our simple fried fish and white rice. We don't need much else, maybe a dip or a sauce, a stray vegetable or two. For a while, the world is at peace and life looks just that little bit better. Now there's a boisterous little stall in a quiet food court that's feeding our love for this humble fare, and it packs a pretty powerful punch.
Bawal Power has been operating in the Kota Damansara food court for about four years now. Opened up by passionate foodie friends including Emri Shamreza and Bob Kuman (they're famous entertainers too!), it has since expanded to Uptown Damansara and Ampang Jaya. So why Bawal Power? Because their main dish is nasi bawal, a well-known Penang dish consisting of a plate of hot white rice and deliciously crispy-fluffy pomfret. These friends realized that no one in the Klang Valley was really selling their favourite meal and decided to start a business to bring nasi bawal to us lucky KL-ites.
This is a wonderfully fresh and spicy dish that goes so well with biryani rice. The curry powder adds a lovely hint of heat to the sweet pineapple. Make some for lunch and your guests will be clamouring for more. More »
