Hungry Hog, SS15.

*non-halal

With new students heading to Taylor’s Roadside (SS15) in a few days, it reminds me of how it was when I first arrived in Subang, under the impression that Asia Cafe and the stores opposite college were all there was to satisfy my gastronomic desires.

This was of course, before enlightenment thanks to the likes of Alvin and Chee Kin, true Subang-ites who opened my world to places like Allegro Cafe, Pontian, the Bak Kut Teh place at SS14, and of course, the star of today’s show – Hungry Hog, all a healthy walking distance from college.

Open for lunch and for dinner past 6, they have lunch menus at pretty reasonable prices for a pork burger and a side of fries/mash at around RM15.

Piggies!

The first time I was there, I found that the best part of the restaurant’s decor was the posters all around with such quirky sayings!

I must say.. they were pretty..

But enough about that, it’s time for the food!

Spaghetti Bacon & Chilli – RM12.90

I found the spaghetti flavourless and dry, but I’ve always been one for loads of sauce so this more ‘aglio olio’ style definitely isn’t my cup of tea. The bacon isn’t much either but there’s a nice hint of spiciness to it from the chilli which some may like.

Bangers & Mash – RM15.90

This was Florence’s dish and I only had a little of it, but the sausages were delicious and with its side entrees, it made a hearty meal.

This was what I ordered and I always get this whenever I go there for dinner! To be honest, Hungry Hog has been the only place I have ever gotten pork burgers from so I wouldn’t be able to give a fair comparison against other pork burgers, BUT I loved the patty as it was juicy and just melts in your mouth just so. Open-mouthed smile 

The ham tastes a little weird and I would have preferred it without, but the salty bacon goes really well with the burger as a whole. Mind you, if you ask for mash, it doesn’t come with gravy, but you can always ask for it at no extra cost from any of the waiters. Smile

Chocolate Brownie – RM10.90

Dessert was disappointing with an overpriced chocolate brownie which leaned too much on the sweet side and you’re really better off walking a little further for Tong Pak Fu or one of the many Taiwanese dessert places around SS15. Though to their credit, the ice cream on top was amazingly smooth.

Speaking of icecream, what was a little more novel was their Bacon Ice-Cream, which was less weird than you think it would taste.

Bacon Gelato – RM9.90

The bacon could hardly be tasted because they were such small pieces and were so covered in caramel that they were mostly sweet anyway. Still, it’s probably worth trying just to say you’ve had some bacon with your ice-cream but it definitely wouldn’t be something I would get again.

I’d prefer my Baskin Robbins’ chocolate chip cookie dough anyday.

If you’re interested, they have lunch menus which come with a free drink (if I remember correctly!) and is at the row behind Secret Recipe, along KFC. Uhhh.. Or you could always contact them for clearer directions. Open-mouthed smile
