Just earlier this week, I was able to attend a food review at Ante Kitchen & Bar, Solaris Dutamas. This restaurant is STRICTLY NON HALAL..as its main dishes consist of PORK PORK AND MORE PORK! *its heaven to me* Ante also serves up a modest variety of mocktails, cocktails, draught beer, a small selection of bottled beers and an exclusive list of boutique wines.
Being with a bunch of bloggers invited by Mei Sze, we met the restaurant owner Jason where he introduce his world of Pork to us! The interior of the restaurant is really cozy and homey where I would say it'll be a great place to chill out or to bring your family and friends
Bringing a variety of dishes, we were able to taste the goodness of em, and definitely, i would give the restaurant a 4.5/5 on its food.
other than that, To all my readers, There's a treat for you! With the mention of reading this post (state my blog www.seraphsam.com) on the review, you will get either a free cocktail or a glass of house red/white wine from our menu with every RM100 purchase on their bill from Monday to Thursdays (excluding public holidays).
Also on Mondays to Thursdays, no corkage fees would be charged if you Bring-Your-Own red and/or white wines. If alcoholic drinks are not your cup of tea but do not want to miss out on the Monday to Thursday specials, just speak to one of the front house managers. They would be more than happy to accommodate any special requests if it is within their capacity.
The Monday to Thursday specials will only last until January 31st 2013.
Lets head to some of the pictures that night!
The restaurant interior
As for starters, we had some soups & salads
Mushroom soup (RM12) - Really creamy, i would say it has a great value for money. it ain't your typical useless ****bells soup...
Tomasco soup (RM12) - One of the restaurant's speciality, a must try!
Crispy Pork Throtter Salad (RM21) - another must try! the crispiness blends well with the salad
Smoked Duck Salad (RM23) - a great combination of flavours
Going to the main courses:
Chargrilled Pork Steak (RM33) - Juicy and satisfying
The Real Bacon Carbonara (RM26) - Very rich in flavor. a must have for Carbonara lovers
Seafood Marinara RM38 - Flavourful. but still i'll say its too small a serving for me (yes i eat that much)
Hogger Pork Ribs RM75 - One of the restaurants specialties. It's nicely done as the meat is tender. Would be better if the meat just falls off the bones haha
Volcano Sacrifice RM30 - The Mash was great, but the pork was a little too dry
Up The Ante Pork Burger (RM 35) - To those who can take a big bite off things. the patty is really juicy.
Crispy Pork Knuckle (RM78) - To be shared out. Its one of the Restaurants specialty and i definitely say its tastes great! =)
Gratinated Pork Loin (RM29) - Potato Gratin is good. the pork loin, a little dry
as for desserts:
Green Tea Cake
Cafe Latte - they do use good beans =)
Hot Chocolate - really rich in flavour
