Porky Goodness @ Ad Hog, Kota Damansara

>> Dec 30, 2010

Ad Hog is a rather new restaurant hidden somewhere deep in Kota Damansara where one is bound to never find it unless you have a GPS. It is strictly non-halal. The menu consist of lots of pork, which deserves a thumbs up from me. Sorry to you guys who can't eat pork, you don't know what you're missing out (no hard feelings okay?).

Ad Hog has a couple of their chef specialty. The other dishes go with the flow, as in Sam cooks up whatever he finds fresh in the market that day.

Gumbo Soup


Gumbo Soup

Gumbo is actually a soup/stew that originated from South Louisiana. It is usually made of a seafood (shellfish) or meat stock. The Gumbo (RM12) served that day was made up of prawns and a wide variety of vegetables (I tasted celery, tomato, leak and onions. There were others that I failed to pick up). The soup tasted a slightly spicy version of  Minestrone Soup with a couple of medium sized prawns. It was a very good starter for the slightly chilly night.

Spare Ribs

The Ribs (RM39) had a good distribution of fat and meat, hence that almost melt in your mouth texture. The meat was moist, even without the sauce. That was a satisfying cut of pork.

Chicken Pogs

The picture above (RM49) is actually de-skinned chicken thigh stuffed with sausage and wrapped with bacon. This dish was darn good. I could have eaten the whole plate myself.

Gamberri Vino

This 3 large king prawns cooked in a 'tomatoey' broth were nicely done as well. They broth (RM59) came with a small loft of baguette. The bread had a nice crust and went perfectly well with the soup.

Salad

Salad

The Salad (RM19) was there to make up for the huge amount of meat eaten that night. It was ordinary.

Pork Bolognese

The pasta (RM24) was to fill up the stomach. It was rather ordinary as well.

Aglio Olio

Aglio Olio

I would rank the olio (RM19) below average. It didn't taste like aglio olio to me.

Chocolate Brownie with Ice Cream

The Brownie (RM12) was actually not bad, but the dessert below out shown it that night.

Rum Ice Cream

Rum Ice-Cream

This had to be the winning dessert of the night. The ice-cream (RM12) resembled the rum cendol at Checkers (Damansara Heights). After all, Sam used to be a partner at Checkers, hence the resemblance. It was very good. The rum gave a nice balance to the sweetness of the ice-cream.

All in all, Ad Hog has some outstanding dishes and a couple of let downs. It is certainly worth a visit. The prices are slightly on the high side though.
