It’s October and thus it’s the month of Halloween and October Fest!
If you are a foodie then you should be no strangers to Morganfields at Pavilion (Muslims excluded), famed for its porky offerings and RIBS. I dropped in once for pork burgers and well, let’s just say that wasn’t a brilliant idea.
So yes, stick to the ribs!
No beer for you? Then choose from their non-alcoholic options; The Lipstick (strawberries, bananas and cream of coconut) – my choice for the night.
Morganfields’ ‘The Ice Cold Lemonade’; which I was told a popular choice of many. Virgin Apple Mojito Cooler – fresh apples, lime chunks, mint leaves topped with soda and Sangria are nice alternatives too.
I love pork knuckles but Morganfields’ version is a slight variation from what I was used to. Frankly, crackly skin, slight marination on the outside layers, melting fats and natural juicy insides (as below) are my kind of knuckle.
Morganfields’ Roasted German Pork Knuckles (RM95.90) are marinated right through to the bone. The meat is however, pink from the marination, not due to its level of doneness. I found it too salty for my liking; but do note that I’m sensitive to sodium. Anyhow, I was advised that it’s perfect when paired with beers.
We (myself and KC) also found the skin to be rather chewy instead of crispy. Andrew, another blogger, loved it though. So it really depends on your preference.
Pork Sausage Platter (RM32.90) which features a medley of favourites like Bratwurst, smoked sausage, spicy Hungarian and Emmantaller Cheese sausage.
I love sausages but again, some of these were too salty. The Bratwurst was best for me.
Morganfield’s Roasted Oriental Pork Belly (RM20.90), served with Dijon mustard and garlic aioli. Now this one was perfect!
Alternating layers of crackly skin, tender meat and fair amount of fat makes the perfect “siew york”.
But end of it all, I just had to have some RIBS! 🙂
Here’s how a full slab is like. Even for the fries were good. Yes, Morganfield’s is worth a visit for their ribs! In fact, I was told that the burgers has undergone some recipes tweaks so looks like I have to be back for some pork burgers soon!
