While running errands one day, my brother discovered a new restaurant, Simply Ribs@Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Being a ribs lover, he visited one day and sent me a picture of his lunch.
Does that look good or what? That sure got his sister excited hee..hee...
So one weekend he took me there for lunch.
We were early of course and there was one other table occupied. We were greeted by a very cheerful and engaging young man who showed us to our table and handed us the menu.
Browsing through the menu, you will find that they serve more than just ribs which is wonderful because you may have that odd one in your family or party who dislikes ribs and must eat rice/noodles.
We had the Potato Skins as our starter. Fully loaded with minced beef and cheese, it was more filling than skin, not that we minded. Definitely something I would order again.
Our drinks by default, a hot Latte for him and an iced Americano for her. I was disappointed that there was sugar added to my drink. As far as I know, Americano contains no sugar. So I only sipped the top half of my coffee. Note to self : Must tell them next time, no sugar.
My brother, having tried the ribs on his earlier visit, opted for the T-Bone Steak, done medium rare. I could not see any pink when my brother cut into the steak. It was a very thin piece of meat and I reckon it was cooked through.
Though my brother found the steak juicy, there were certain spots of chewy sinew that made it a little difficult to eat.
And this is my Sticky Grilled Beef Ribs. It looks small in this photo due to the large plate. What's with big chunky plates like this? I find them rather clumsy and bulky and would have preferred a more conventional shaped plate of reasonable size.
Alamak, why am I complaining about the plate? Back to my meal, the beef could have been more tender as it still had a bit of chewiness to it. But since I have full dental faculties, it was not a problem tackling this slab of meat. It was tasty enough though I felt that it need more sauce. So I asked for more.
The ribs were served with sauteed vegetables just like the steak. I am not very fond of vegetables done this way and somehow I felt that ribs would pair better with coleslaw or a salad. But that's just my opinion.
Now on to desserts. The server (another guy, not the one who greeted us) suggested the Creme Brulee, so we went with that and the Banoffee Pie.
My brother and I shared the two desserts between us and we fell in love with the Creme Brulee.
It had a nice crusty crunchy top and we simply loved the texture and taste of the creamy Creme Brulee. Next time, we will order one each hee..hee..
The Banoffe Pie was a first for us.
It's made with a digestive biscuit base, caramel and bananas and topped with cream. So of course it made for a delightful dessert.
I would like to come back next time for the lamb or perhaps the lasagna. And of course the Creme Brulee :)
