E42T : 42 East Restaurant & Bar, TTDI – Head there for PORK RIBS & Margaritas!

The stretch of Lorong Rahim Kajai 14 in TTDI; where just a year or 2 ago the pub scene was (supposedly) pioneered & dominated by Sid’s Pub, is now hosting a pub at almost every alternate shoplot.
That’s not a bad thing I suppose, since each pub strives to up the ante by offering better value for their food, ambiance & most importantly, the alcohol πŸ˜‰ , thus keeping a healthy competition going & also giving us options for our after-hours chillax time.

Since I’m not much of a drinker, I’m more appreciative of pubs that offers a good ambiance, which can be as simple as providing comfortable & roomy sitting arrangements where if I were to turn or raise my arm, I won’t hit anyone!
The appropriate noise levels matters as well, cos I’m just peeved if I’m required to shout to be heard & lastly, I adore pubs that offers good grub to fill my tummy. LOL.

42 East seems to offer all that at the moment. Even the common problem of me having to order water whenever I’m at a pub (because most other pubs offers only soft drinks as a non-alcoholic alternative & I avoid soft drinks as well) is taken care of here with the healthy & delicious fruit mixes available.

Orange + Banana & Peach + carrot. My vote goes for the Banana & Orange, as the carrot one had too much carrot residue. I think they blended instead of juicing it.

The highlight here is the baby back pork ribs of course. We had a slab of the one glazed with Connor’s stout, which was my favourite & another which is Hot & Spicy, which wasn’t all that hot or spicy. LOL!

The Hot & Spicy ribs, pretty obvious from the reddish marinate rub right?

And here is the Connor Stout ribs, which is darker & more intense in flavour.

I had no complains for the ribs, for they were perfectly succulent, with a smoky char that I love. For RM55 for a full slab & RM32 for a sizable half-slab, it’s ideal for sharing among 2-3 friends.

Slosh it all down with some of 42 East ‘s signature margaritas (RM18 during happy hours) & your work day may seem not that bad after all. πŸ˜‰ (Flavors available for the margaritas are Strawberry, Original Lime, Passion Fruit & Mango).

I love this part, where the soft bones are. Nice to chew to smittereens. πŸ˜‰

We were served other dishes as well, like 42 East’s Crispy Pork Bacon, Cheesy Wedges, Chicken Chop & etc. But nothing could overshadow the lovely ribs.

The clams pot (RM12) wasn’t too impressive that night. Chewy clams & overly heady wine stock is just not my kind of thing.

Now, if only they add a pork burger into their menu! Imagine a smoky, Connor’s stout pork patty in between 2 freshly halved buns, topped with fresh pineapple with sides of coleslaw & mash. Now, that’s the ideal pork burger! πŸ˜‰
