The Rib Shop @ Damansara Heights

Remember i told you about my coincidental meetings with "pork"? Apparently our fate did not end with my last post but continued to this shop, The Rib Shop. Recently i have been meeting up alot with "pork" and on the verge of spending more time and intimate moments with "pork" then my girlfriend. She isnt exactly too happy as i relate back to my hands on experience with "pork" and the memorable times we have had over the days.

Getting addicted to the flavourful meat, i researched and was told that the stretch of shops in Jalan Kasah offered plenty of pork dishes, whether it was ribs or roast. From Vintry to Rib Shop, i could continue my undisrupted fling with "pork" even with my girlfriend was going to come and so it was; a quiet threesome with "pork", my girlfriend and i.

The Rib Shop specialises in the obvious, ribs and to be precise, Pork Ribs. Some may be constraint to certain types of meats due to religion or choice but for a glutton like me, i have tried beef ribs and even wild boar ribs but would rather go out with "pork" everyday. So it was inevitable that i ordered the ribs, the house special bbq ribs.
Just to remind me that the ribs will be served soon enough, i can barely contain my enjoyment even though i am having an equal good time conversing with my girlfriend.

To distract me further, i have done something that i have never done before; whether on impulse or for the sheer fun of it, order a whole bottle of wine. The Wine Shop which is within the Rib Shop offers "affordable" wines from a variety of countries to accompany your meal with no corkage fees. So it was, a nice bottle of Pinot Noir from Victoria. I very much prefer my PenFolds but that is at a whole different price range altogether.

The Sun Dried Tomatoes dip with bread was a nice way to start things off. Although i would prefer a thicker spread of the dip, all was good.

I didnt want "pork" just for mains, i wanted it for an appetiser as well. So i was presented with a mushroom meatloaf which in my mind was a huge block of meat with lots of mushrooms. I was presented with a thinly sliced minced pork with a hint of mushroom taste. The alfafa was refreshing but i felt betrayed by this dish, i should have dived straight to the mains.

If my girlfriend is the best looking lady in my life, this plate could easily be one of the best "pork" dishes that i have taste in my life. Almost mistaken with char siew but differentiated because of the bone and doused with plenty of tangy barbeque sauce, it was a delight to use my hands to tear at the meat. The creamy mash potatoes tasted abit like it came from a packet but nevertheless was enhanced with lots of cream and butter soaked up the pork juices. The coleslaw was the only source of vegetables that could contribute my fiber intake for the night and was greatly appreciated.

As the ribs cleaned out and the wine sipped away throughout my affair with "pork" and my lady, i suddenly realised the sources of good life, good food, good drink and good company. The rib shop just did the job for me on a quiet Sunday evening.

Kee Hui said...

you should try El Cerdo in Changkat Bukit Bintang. The Marinated Pork Steak is DELICIOUS.

In case you are wondering.. El Cerdo actually means Pig in Spainish

My Taste Heaven said...

Yes, I agree with Kee Hui. I tried El Cerdo's ribs, they are really fantastic. In my whole life, I think the ribs there are the most delicious that I have ever tasted.

Just wondering if eBay enables you to sell [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] on the internet? Do you know if there are any restrictions depending on what country you're in?

My parents have just called me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to a concert as they wont be able to make it because of an additional family event.

Besides asking friends etc, i thought ebay would be a good place to market them.

But whats ebay's policy on selling tickets? Ive heard alot about it within the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is inside this coming month

Thanks in advance for your advice.
