Ham & Eggs............

Sid’s Pub @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

A friendly Englishman started this pub in TTDI, to provide patrons what a great pub they can get here in UK style. The arrangement of chairs, the wooden tables and the bar with assorted types of beers and liquors displayed for customers’ viewing. Sid’s pub’s setting is almost similar to those in UK. Sid’s is set up like a typical pub, with solid wooden furniture that isn’t placed too close to each other and a big bar at the center. Parking is also typically not a stressful exercise as there is plenty of space around the single row of shop houses opposite the condominium. The pub is usually rather packed at night especially during important sporting events. However, seats are aplenty during lunch sessions especially on weekends.
Here, they provide some of the British favorites such as beer battered Cod & Chips, Bacon Butty and Pork Vindaloo. Talking about Pork Vindaloo, they claimed the recipe is stolen by Sid’s Uncle Pat whilst traveling through goa way back then. Using Lean Pork tenderloin and marinated in spicy vinegary sauce served with rice, chips or arf-n-arf. This dish has a stark sourness and it’s very spicy and enough to burn a hole right through the stomach. The lean pork was a bit too stringy.
Pigs in Blankets, pork sausages that wrapped in bacon. It’s categorized in snappy snacks; it’s believe many patrons love to eat it while watching sports. The dish is just average and nothing to shout about it.
Under the snappy snacks, they have one funny dish called the Saucy Politicians’ Beef. Don’t really understand why the owner called it that way….hhmmm, cannot make any sensitive comments here….hahah.. By the way, the dish tasted sweet and spicy & comes with bread (ok ok saja/average).
Then the BBQ Pork Ribs, sticky and sweet on the top layer, lightly smoky in taste on the inside. A lil greasy but yummy. However, the ribs were quite hard and would required strong teeth to bite it out.
The Sid’s Burger, burger was quite delicious. The patty was juicy and cooked to perfection, and went extremely well with the lightly toasted buns, bacon, eggs and French fries. Patrons will truly enjoyed every mouthful.
Lastly, the Greasy Caff All Day Breakfast. The name itself says it all, consists of sausages, bacon, eggs, tomato, beans, mushrooms, chips & toast. The sausages are nice and tangy but the rest is quite normal where you can find somewhere nicer.
Anyways, do give it a try if you happen to be in the area. But believes patrons can find better all day breakfast like Jarrod & Rawlins and La Bodega.

really like the saucy politician beef. very oily tho. mine was the breakfast set. have to say that it IS greasy. would go to jarrods and rawlins for less greasy breakfast but La Bodega's portion is bigger and better priced.
