The Meat Experts @ Hartamas Shopping Centre

For avid babitarians, this place need no further introduction. The ball would start rolling once a blogger posted on a good place where it can satisfy even the most picky oink-oink lovers. As you know, since I can't eat beef which was quite a letdown as I definitely can't feast on the prized wagyu beef & I don't eat lamb... pork is the best thing that ever happened to me. A lot of restaurants, cafes or even pubs that offer pork in their menu were mushrooming in the Klang Valley area recently.

Since Sri Hartamas area is not really near my home, the timing has to be right in order for me to come here. Located in the quieter area of Sri Hartamas, parking was not really a problem.

Upon reaching, I quickly snapped pictures of this place and my act caught the attention of the affable owner (pardon me but I forgot his name) . He asked "are you a blogger too?" and I simply nodded.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio @ RM19.90 - served with garlic, chilly flakes and crispy roasted pork. To me, simple Aglio Olio spaghetti requires the right amount of garlic, peppercorn & chilly flakes in order to be considered good. And Meat Experts has nailed it right! Each and every mouth of the spaghetti was good and when combined with the perfect roasted pork (crispy skin, right fat-to-lean-meat ratio), what more could I ask? Just try their roasted pork (you won't regret your decision the moment you sink your teeth on it)

As we came here for the veru first time, he suggested that we tried their Mixed Grill (S) @ RM29.90 - combination of pork chop, lamb chop, BBQ ribs, sausages and seasonal vegetables. I can't say much of the lamb chop and sausages (remember that I don't eat lamb?) much according to Jenn (who by the way, can't get enough of lamb), it didn't have the gamy smell and the meat was tender too. I got to try the rest of the pork meat and thought that they were great... good sauce, perfectly marinated meat and fork tender texture!

Lorina 750ml @ RM20.90 per bottle - French Berry Lemonade. I didn't plan to order this drink initially but the owner spotted me browsing through the drink section and asked me to give this Lorina drink a try. This famous brand from France has existed for the longest time and even Marilyn Monroe was spotted having this non-alcoholic drink. Using only natural spring water and flavoured with variety of fruits, it was refreshing and it felt like having wine (minus the alcohol content). We loved this!

Leo's verdict - besides dining, you can also opt to purchase the processed meat which was located at another section of the restaurant. If only this place was near my home, I would come here at least once a week to satisfy my cravings for pork meat!

Many new places in Klang Valley for pork now. So many that I lost count. Pity about the no beef and lamb part. My mum too can't take both meats.

Me? I eat anything and everything. :)
