Hoofed. Non-halal. Be warned.

Hoofed is a non-halal restaurant located in the quaint surroundings of Taman Tun Dr. Ismail or more commonly known as TTDI.

Cosy interior.

Was surprised to notice they have a wide range of drinks available there.

And when I mentioned non-halal, I mean it. It has a wide array of pork dishes dubbed to be the highlight of their food menu, namely the Roast Pork Belly and the Roasted Suckling Pig (Hog on a Board)!

Roast Pork Belly (RM 17.90)

Roasted Suckling Pig aka Hog on a Board (Half: RM 90; Whole RM 170)

Those two dishes were UMMM UMMMMMMMMM if you know what I mean. No words could describe how sinfully good they were.

We had three different soups to start with – The Roasted Tomato Soup (RM 7). Very rich in combinations of sweet and sour flava. It’s either you love it or hate it. I love it!

The Roasted Tomato Soup (RM 7)

The Onion Soup (RM 8) served with a thick layer of melted cheese on the top.

Didn’t really fancy this somehow. I’m not a fan of onions to begin with.

And the Oxtail Soup (RM 15) served with puffed pastry on top. I’d say the puffed pastry saved this. The soup itself was somewhat mediocre. Pastry dipped in oxtail soup is definitely a go!

We also had some greens and fish to balance out all the rich stuff in store for us.

The Smoked Duck Salad (RM 18). Love it! Generous portion of duck meat :D

Chilean Sea Bass (RM 40) served with risotto is a definite must-try!

And for the final main, the Braised Lamb Shank (RM 40.90). Superbly tender. The meat literally falls off the bone I kid you not.

And when it comes to dessert – The part where no girls would say “I’m too full for this”.

The cold (top) and warm Bananarama (RM 12.30).

Chantelle’s an obvious fan of the cold one. The warm one was a tad too salty for any of our liking.

The Pavlova (RM 7.90). Average. 

The Brownie A La Mode (RM 12.90). My favourite dessert of the lot! Extremely sinful too.

The very raw group of Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers – Sarah, Chantelle and myself flanked by MHB’s founder Tim Chew and Ernest, one of Hoofed’s partners. Many thanks for being such a gracious host (and feeding us with sinfully good food).

Hoofed opens from 5pm to midnight on Mondays to Saturdays.

Hoofed is located at 18A, Lorong Rahim Kajai 14, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur and is above the famous Tom, Dick and Harry’s. For reservations call +603 77288567 or Shawn at 012-6510852.
