Belly Good, Dataran Mentari, Sunway

>> Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Date: 10 July 2009 (yet another overdue post!*wergh*)
Venue: Belly Good Restaurant, Dataran Mentari, Bandar Sunway
Occasion: Dinner with STheng & Kenneth
Overall comment: Nice ambiance & pretty delicious pork dishes. The pork belly that I had was lovely!
Halal: No

It was a rare occasion where I could just meet up with Kenneth for a meal. It has been AGES since I last met him! Nice :) Theng & I decided on this place as it was better than having the usual steamboat buffets. Pork is good! *drools*

I've heard 'bout this place from another blogger some time time ago (can't remember who! I think it's Bangsar-babe), so I thought it'll be worth a try to really find out how it tastes. Not too bad, really :) I'm quite satisfied with it. It's certainly not the best, but for the price you pay & the portion you get, plus the taste of the food served, it's all worth the eat ;) Do try it out one day!

Display of porkilicious sausages & other pork dishes

Iced Coffee with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM9.50/glass)

Baked Portobello Mushrooms with Bacon & Cheese (RM12.50/serving)
- Imported mushrooms with melted cheese & chopped bacon -
Quite delicious as the mushrooms were fragrant & juicy as well. The bacon made the mushroom very flavorful, while the cheese gave a sense of satisfaction to the gastronomic experience.

Sausage Platter (RM26.90/serving)
- Three types of sausages: pork chorizo, pork oriental, & spicy Hungarian, served with fries & Thai chili sauce -
Never underestimate these sausages. It's very filling! I like the way the sausages were nicely cooked - it's crispy on the outside, tender on the inside :) *yums*

Mixed Platter (RM23.90/serving)
- Grilled pork belly & pork ribs bathed in the House Special Rib/Belly Sauce, accompanied by mash & coleslaw -
The meat was tender & juicy - just nice; not overdone :) The sauce is kinda interesting...it's sweet & slightly savory, and it felt as if there's some fruit base for the sauce. This is one sauce where I just can't decipher what are the possible ingredients! Oh yes, the mash was really delicious too....*lip smacking*

rather reasonable. one of the must-try on my list, for so long now ....sigh.
novelty's running low liao.

but they could've served with sausage platter with mashed potatoes. or wedges. or thick cut fries.

cant bear the sight of supermarket crinkle-cut fries lah...

It was an unpleasant dining experience for me and my friend @ Belly Good. The serving was small and the owner who took our order wasn't a nice guy either.
Basically, we booked several tables for 30 person and on that morning before the dinner, he called and said he wanted to cancel the reservation because of some stupid excuses related to his own profit (something about lots of students coming in and sharing food instead of ordering one meal per pax resulting in lower business profit).
If you are unwilling to do our business, then do not accept the reservation and cancel it last minute. Such an unethical businessman.
On that night itself, I don't get why the owner seemed so stressed about trying to rush the food out. Why can't he wait till everyone is seated before taking orders. In the end, we had to be rude to other guests who arrived later by eating first as the food was there and no point waiting until the food is cold. The serving is very small (3 sticks of ribs instead of a row) and the baby back rib that I've ordered, doesn't seems to be a baby ribs at all. At RM29.90 (yes, they increased the price without updating their website), it is definitely not worth it. I could have gotten a 2 course meal at TGI Fridays for that price.
Another observation of mine was the kitchen. Located in the dining area, the kitchen was an unpleasant sight. The frying pan is abused to the max. I suspect it used to be a non-stick pan, but the coating on the middle is entirely gone, only the side still appear coated. So what have they been serving their customers? Teflon coated pasta? Ewwww....they can't even invest in a proper aluminium or cast iron cookware that will last longer.
All I want to say is, avoid that place at all cost. There are many other places for pork lovers. There were more unhappy events that occurred that night, but I do not wish to mention it anymore but it has something to do with mistake during ordering and lost of temper.

->~Z3n-X3Rn~: I'm sorry to hear that ur dining experience there wasn't pleasant at all :( I was there a year ago, so I've no idea if things have changed & how good or bad the restaurant has become.

No doubt there are many more pork-dishes places...the latest that I've tried, which was good, was at Sanbanto@SS2, PJ. It's on my blog as well, so check it out ;)

If you want something cheap & good for students, Nambawan@Old Klang Road will be something that I will always recommend! It's a lil cosy, home-cook like meal place, but for the price you pay, it's worth eating :) It's also on my blog.

Hope these recommendations are helpful to u! Thanks for dropping by my blog :)
