MAYFAIR English Kitchen & Bar

I have been in and out of KL, travelling all around in cabs, trains, planes, crew boats, supply boats and chopper (how cool is that huh); to the extend even my housemates hardly spot me at home.

They probably miss me already :)

Last night was the first night in so many months where I slept early and woke up in time for work. See lah, travel here there still need to be in office .. complain complain complain lol. Just kidding (in case boss happens to read this)

To me, there’s no better way to unwind from a long day job than to eat my heart out with the finest delectable treats and drinks. I love food so much it’s odd I actually fainted due to low glucose.

*Crime scene - KLCC Rotiboy @ 8 am. Shy :(

Mayfair, The English Kitchen & Bar is situated strategically at Damansara Perdana, within walking distance from Ecoba. Me being hungry as always was one of the early birds to arrive. Tim, as usual, did his VVIP catwalk upon entering the café.

I have grown to love salads (used to hate greens when I was younger) so their Ceaser Salad [RM 14+] was an appetizer I could not resist.

The Tuna and Mushroom Pasta [RM 23+] serves an awesome combination of pasta, smoked tuna and mushrooms. The tuna was de bomb I kid you not. A dish worth trying.

Chorizo and Bacon Pizza [RM 27+]. Hmm. Okay lah .. Very average.

The Tender Hickory Pepper Baby Pork Ribs [RM 60+] was served in a portion which guarantees satisfaction. It is not as tender as what other outlets served mainly because they do not use a kind of tenderizer for meat so in a way it’s healthier to dine it here.

Just look at how Sarah and myself gnawed the meat off the bone lol. We have zero patience when it comes to food, unlike the ladylike Nicole lol.

Next up was the extremely unhealthy yet sinfully GOOD Crispy Pork Knuckle [RM 45+]. Crispy on the outside, and mouth watering tender meat inside. Yum!

Sausages from Jarrod and Rawlins. Nothing to shout about though it was quite tasty.

And as for desserts, we had Warm Bread Butter Pudding [RM 14+]. I’m more to the warm tong sui i.e. red/green/black bean soup, longan, etc kinda person so I’m not particularly fussy towards such dessert but the other girls who were, suggested to add ice cream on the pudding to give it more oomph!

And the last I heard, they took the advice, thanks to MHB bloggers whee ~

Personal verdict:
Ambience – 8/10. Very warm and cozy, definitely spells out English Kitchen & Bar.
Food – 7.2/10. Love the salad, pasta and the pork knuckle.
Price – 6/10. A little on the pricey side if you ask me.
Service – 8/10. Awesome. Brothers Thomas (owner) and Kenneth (chef) were very friendly.
