Together with other fellow food bloggers, last Saturday we were invited and attended a food review in a relatively new pub called Beer Belly in The Strand in Kota Damansara.
As the name of the place suggests, Beer Belly is a pub serving various drinks and alcohol. The place was dimly lighted and the ambiance was suitable for patrons to relax while enjoy a sports game on TV.
Pictured above was the Jack Daniel’s Lynchberg Lemonade. The drink was visually attractive and also tasted nice, the alcohol taste was rather mild and the soft drink gave the cocktail a sweet touch.
Another of Beer Belly’s creative creation of cocktail.
Other than the appealing drinks above, Beer Belly also serve finger food, starters and main courses. Our first starter was the South Asian Chicken Kebab. Priced at RM15, we thought the meat was a bit dry but it was still good when dipped in their special sauce.
Our next starter was the Spanish Omelette priced at RM13. The omelette tasted better than it looks, cooked with chicken ham, potatoes and bell peppers, the egg was rather fluffy and very flavourful with the ingredients inside.
The Devilled Marmite Boxing Chicken was our favourite starter for the night. Priced at RM10, the dish was one of the chef’s recommendations in the menu and it tasted very good. The meat was nicely marinated and coated with thick Marmite sauce and it was soft when eaten. It left us craving for more!
For our mains, we were served with Birmingham Chicken Balti which was priced at RM23. Customers can choose from a choice of rice or naan. We personally liked the chicken balti very much. The thick curry was unique with an appetising sour taste and slightly spicy which suit our taste buds. Definitely something we would order again!
This was the Spaghetti Bolognese with Homemade Meatballs, available for RM16. We thought the Bolognese was very good! The Bolognese sauce was thick and flavourful. It had just the right level of acidity from the tomatoes in the sauce. The beef meatballs were a joy to eat as well. They were soft and moist on the inside and were the perfect accompaniment to the spaghetti!
Beer Belly had a very unique version of Linguine al Pesto. Priced at RM15, the pasta was cooked with chicken and turkey ham. The pasta had a distinctive taste which was rather similar to the Hakka Lei Cha, a pounded tea rice dish. If you’re adventurous and would like to try something different, do check this dish out!
Our favourite main dish for the night was the Bintulu Belacan fried rice. Priced at RM12, the fried rice was garnished with side salad and topped with a fried egg. The fried rice was very rich and flavourful with Belacan taste. It was a very addictive dish and we would definitely return for more!
Finally we ended our dinner with a Stewed Spiced Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice-cream which was priced at RM10. We loved the dessert a lot! The combination of the sweet and crispy crumbles, nicely spiced apple slices and vanilla ice-cream was fantastic. A highly recommended dessert!
It was a pleasant dinner and we liked the food overall in Beer Belly, as well as their drinks. We would like to thank Ken for organising the food review and the owners of Beer Belly for hosting us for dinner. For more information, please visit their Facebook page.
