This is not a food review per se but more of me telling you about my weekend makan session. After this outing, I cannot look at another rib for at least another 6 months.
My brother and I decided to check out Morganfield's.
We had our fill of ribs at Chicago, and we wanted to source for other restaurants to fulfill our love for ribs. We like big portions. And we got more than what we bargained for at Morganfield's. You will see why I have sworn off ribs for at least another 6 months :)
We saw some posters on the wall.
After studying the very extensive menu, we decided to get a starter. And we both agreed on the Awesome Threesome.
It consisted of an Onion Blossom :
Spicy Chicken Wings :
and Russet Potato Skins :
It was alright. I quite enjoyed the Onion Blossom. The chicken wings were ordinary while the potato skins were too cheesy for me.
By the way, before we tucked in, we were provided with bibs. The waiter will assist you to put on the bibs. It felt kind of funny.

Because we had appetizers, I decided to order only a half rack of Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs. My brother was more gung ho and ordered a full rack of Garlicky BBQ Spare Ribs. He and I had no trouble polishing off our full racks at Chicago and still have space for dessert. We are big eaters. By Malaysian standards at least.
When our orders came, WHOAH!! The ribs were HUMONGOUS! This was my brother's full rack. He almost fainted.
And this was my half rack.
We decided to share so that we could have a taste of each other's selection. And my brother needed help to finish his portion. So this was what I ended up with.
I guess we underestimated the portion sizes here. This is American sized portions and I noted the next table had to pack their unfinished food home. My brother and I were really struggling with our ribs and in the end we had to surrender hah..hah..
We got the waiter to pack our leftovers and the nice guy told us that half a rack is just nice to share between two persons. Not really for us. A half rack for each of us would be just nice. Now we know :) We will be back since we bought a calender and were rewarded with a RM10.00 voucher.
It was my brother's treat and I will get the next one when we return. We walked out of the restaurant with near exploding bellies. Then we saw these :
Very pretty macarons. Would you believe it that I have never tasted macarons? Neither has my brother. We thought of buying one each to try. But when we peered closer to check the price..................
RM4.00 each for that tiny little thing? We are both accountants and you would have to pry our cold hard fingers to pay for that. Anyway, the stall was unattended. So we walked away. Till my next outing, I leave you with these macarons :)
