Hoofed @ Lorong Rahim Kajai 14, TTDI

I was just going through my favourite google searchword "pork KL" when a review of this restaurant popped up in the list =P And what good timing too for the week after we visited Hoofed, a review of it appeared in The Star.
The restaurant is located above this pub called Tom, Dick & Harry's in TTDI. There is quite limited space on the 1st floor as you can gauge from the pic below so do make a reservation if you've got a large party.

Oink my god!
There are high chairs and tables as well as normal height chairs and tables for you to choose...
...or you can opt to sit at the sofa and coffee table...
Have I?

Smoked Duck Salad (RM 18)
The Smoked Duck Salad has plenty of smoked duck strips, wedges of hard-boiled egg and century egg as well as the usual salad leaves. It was quite nice with a light vinaigrette dressing although the smoked duck tasted like ham to me. Not very outstanding though.
Roasted Tomato Soup (RM 7)
The Roasted Tomato Soup was extremely rich and creamy with lots of tomato puree. Very nice to drink on a rainy day =)
Onion Soup (RM 8)
The Onion Soup had all of us going back for second spoonfuls. The cheesy piece of bread bobbing atop the soup gave it an even more homey feel.
Bacon Fried Rice (RM 19.60)
This was the dish which attracted my attention =P Chinese-style fried rice with bacon and Chinese sausage bits. It was very fragrant and each morsel of rice was light and fluffy. The bacon and Chinese sausage added much flavour to the dish. This is highly recommended.
Devil's Hair Pasta (RM 19.90)
I was eagerly anticipating the Devil's Hair Pasta with roast pork after reading good reviews about it but I was quite disappointed with it =( It came tasting like wantan mee =.= It would have tasted good if it were like wantan mee but the thick caramelised dark soya sauce coating the roast pork and pasta had a hint of chilli pepper, making the dish slightly peppery. I was the only one who thought the combination of salty savoury and pepperish odd friends were tucking in happily.
Roast Pork Belly (RM 17.90)
Oh this has got to be one of the best roast pork in town. Moist tender meat with bits of fat and an extremely crispy skin. A dollop of yellow mustard and horseradish each provided an alternative flavour.
Pork Shoulder Chops (RM 30.20)
The pork shoulder chops were good - moist and flavourful from the garlic and onion sauce most probably made from pork drippings. It is supposedly served on a bed of mash but I must have missed it. Fresh vegetables were served as a side.
Pork Ribs (RM 44.40)
The Pork Ribs were served dry with a bowl filled with brown sauce and fresh vegetables on the side. I found the meat a little too firm and dry and the cinnamon seasoning rather strong. No complaints from my friends though.
Pavlova (RM 7.90)
The Pavlova was average, served with fresh kiwi and strawberry slices and a drizzle of maple syrup. Good thing it was not too sweet thanks to the balance provided by the tart fruits.
Cold Bananarama (RM 12.30)
Oh this was the unexpected surprise of the night. A creamy and chocolatey concoction with banana slices, it was so good we ordered a second serving before we even finished the first =P
Here's our second serving. Don't you feel disappointed seeing it after a comparatively larger serving the first time? =.= Anyway the second serving didn't fare too well with us as it had a sprinkling of chopped nuts ala Cornetto which had a whiff of stale nuts smell =.=
Brownies ala Mode (RM 12.90)
The piping hot chocolatey brownies were quite good with huge walnuts, strawberry slices and cold vanilla ice-cream. A foolproof (fail-safe =P) dessert,
<hoof print>
Some hits and misses here and there but I wouldn't mind returning for the Bacon Fried Rice, Roast Pork Belly and the Roasted Suckling Pig which some other patrons ordered and looked so good.

  1. In all honesty Anne, good food is when after damn a lot of days , you can only remember the really yum ones and that would only be the roast pork belly for me. Hahahahaha the rest I could barely even remember the taste anymore.

    And we did say laaaa. The wan tan mee was a bit odd! Maybe my cina roots just can't accept it. Sumore the price was 4 times of a normal wanton mee outside. Zz.

    Will never go back for desserts. Despite how nice the banana thing , the second one showed me they lack of quality control and prolly u cook a more wicked dessert with ur nigella book hahahaha

    Don't mind going back to try suckling pig!

  2. Wth! Anne! Your blog ate my commen?? Vicious!

    1. I just found out your super long comment has been reported as spam haha! So I retrieved it lol and yeah I would love to go back to try the suckling pig! Yeah some of the dishes are not worth ordering again and totally agree with you about the dessert. The 2nd round totally spoiled it lor =.=
