Sanbanto Cafe, SS2

>> Wednesday, June 9, 2010

Venue: Sanbanto Cafe, SS2, Petaling Jaya
Occasion: Birthday dinner with Gur
Overall comment: The pork ribs here rock!!! Not too expensive & the food is consistently good!
Halal: No

Total bill = RM76.00 (inclusive of 1 bottle mineral water + service charge)

Some piggies are "fresh" & pink...

Some piggies "charred-black"! You can only notice the nose & the popped-out eyes...

While some piggies are upside-down, best viewed sideways, or from the usual front/rear...

And all of such piggies, Sanbanto has it all! - Premium quality.... (don't play-play)

Sanbanto (三板头), a small 'lil deli + cafe selling fresh pork items & cooked porkilicious meals boasts of its high-quality pork, direct from their HACCP farm in Jemaluang ( Sam pan Tuo in Mandarin- hence Sanbanto), Johor. The farm & pigs products are certified by Moody's and ISO22000 approved, plus the pigs are fed with organic food instead of junk! So, there you go, some cleaner & healthier pork for your meals! Trust me, the pork served at this cozy cafe doesn't have that strong & yucky "porky" smell ;)

The cafe's rather small & I'm assuming that it can only fit around 24 persons at a time. If you don't wanna wait too long to be seated, make a reservation & be on time!

It was indeed a lovely dinner with Gur & I was satisfied to the brim! Stuffed, but felt so good!

Iced Honey Lemon Tea (RM4.90/glass)
SOUR + Honey sweet! It's like drinking "tom yam - the chili"...hahaha...too sour for my liking, but it's actually good for digestion after a heavy, meaty meal!

Cheese Baked Meat Balls (RM10.00/serving of 5 balls)
Gur & I are greedy...gluttons are we! Personal meal ain't enough...have to order some sides...and heck, we ordered a really "jelak" side....but it was GOOOOOOOOOOD. The meatballs were nicely marinated & seasoned, plus baked to perfection, covered in aromatic cheesy pool....ooooo....yums! It's no doubt slightly costly, but I reckon the generous portion of cheese just makes it worth paying :)

Sanbanto Pork Bolognase with Paparadelle (RM17.00/serving)
Simple, but lovely. The home-made Paparadelle were just-nice in texture. The bolognase sauce wasn't too rich, but the combination of herbs & spices used really enhanced the whole dish :) Gur loved this & he's a very picky eater!

BBQ Pork Ribs (RM38.00/serving)
I tell you, you MUSTN'T miss out this dish when you're here. This was ONE order that I will never regret ordering...I felt that this was better than the one I had at Checkers! The meat was tender & juicy (unlike Checkers & even Leornado's, which were slightly dry), plus it has an extra tempting layer of fats that melts in your mouth when you bite into it....oh, heaven! The mash potatoes were also creamy & irresistibly delectable. Ah...this was THE meal for pork lovers...thumbs up! (I sure hope they are consistent with their quality ;P) Oh yes, I must mention that the serving is also quite large & if you're not a big eater, don't stuff yourself with this dish; share it for greater enjoyment. The Ruthless Eater whacked this dish squeaky clean HERSELF! (with Gur's help on the corn cos she just can't eat anymore...but the corn's juicy & perfectly 'buttered' too!)

If you happen to be around the area or if you're in PJ, but don't know where to eat (and don't mind something porky - they have other meat as well), drive over to Sanbanto & try out this place at least once in your entire lifetime. I don't think you'll be disappointed (no guarantees though :P)

->Leo: Hahaha...no idea man...I'm sure the level of cholesterol it gives to our bodies will be the same, if not similar (as compared to the usual pork) :D But this place's pork ribs is pretty good! Of course I may not have tried 'the best', but this is good enough for now :P
