               Jotaro's Food Review              
Taman Midah, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur - April 2015
I have heard much of those Iberian pigs from Spain and how good the meat from the Iberico pigs are. Hah! I have even read about them in the adventures of Asterix the Gaul!
The thing is I have heard so much about them but have yet to try them. So when our Facebook group the Makan Club held a gathering at the Sausage & Ribs Shack, it was a MUST GO for me - they serve Iberico Pork Ribs there, Yeah!

It was a night of hits and misses.
A big hit as Makan Club members got to know each other better. Most knew each other through the net only and it was a good time to see each other face-to-face. Patrick brought some whiskey to loosen up everyone and soon we were warming up to each other.
It was a night of misses as by the time some of us got there, the crème de resistance (the Iberico ribs) were sold out. Fortunately, other kindly members shared theirs with us.
I kicked off with some mushroom soup before hitting the bottle of whiskey. It was just nicely thick, creamy with good slices of mushrooms; and warmed up the tummy for more to come. (the soup not the whiskey *smiles*).

Along the way we had this beautiful garden salad that came with sesame dressing instead of the usual. They call it the Coral Salad, it does look like a green coral doesn't it?

As the Iberico Ribs were sold out, some of us went for other dishes on the menu, needless to say they were all very good.
I went for this sausage platter, a mixed of a few types - chiplotas, garlic, etc. It was a good mix, one of varying complementing tastes. The meat inside were just nice, not overly minced so that they still retain a good bite but were still tender and juicy.
Chef Yeoh, who runs this place, does the sausage himself; from the grinding, mixing and stuffing to ensure that it is up to his standards.

The sausages came sitting on a carpet of fried onion which had soaked up the juices seeping out from them. I just love this, a very good combo.

Pan-seared Norwegian Salmon.
This is one dish that seems easy to make but difficult to get right by most restaurants. Many  end up with the fish meat being too dry. I won't say that they have done it perfect here, but they were close; with a good crispy layer over the meat which was not that dry.
You must be wondering what happened to the Iberico ribs! Patience, our friends had not come round to sharing with us yet.

I loved those succulent Portobello mushrooms that I ordered two plates of them to share with my foodie buddies. They were not in the menu but the Chef Yeoh was most kind to whip them up for us.

New Zealand Lamb Cutlets.
I always like these from New Zealand, somehow they are more tender and with just the right amount of fat.

And here comes the long awaited pork ribs:
This is not the Iberico por ribs but the standard Spanish pork ribs, still it looks and tastes good.

AND this is the Iberico Pork Rib, nice honey-glazed and with just a thin layer of fat to add to it's flavour. (Apologies, if I did not show a proper rack of the ribs. These were the ones our buddies kindly shared with us).

Finally... I got to sink my teeth into a dream. I have had pork ribs, many very nicely done but nothing compares to these. The meat was juicy, tender and easy to chew into, it was par excellence!
