Foodventure: Ad Hog, Kota Damansara

It was so hard to find this place, even had to use GPS cuz it was located at the inside inside area of Palm Springs Kota Damansara. Once you turn into Palm Springs just keep going straight, past the townhouses, past the shoplots, allllll the wayyyy until u see factories coming up on the left, then start looking for Jalan PJU3/45 on your left.

The shop's hard to spot as well as there isn't a signboard so just look for an orange & black shop with a chalkboard at the front. Lemme just say this before you decide against going on this quest, THE SEARCH IS WORTH IT.

Check out the interior deco:

A simple chandelier lighting up our table.

Their rustic and classic deco, me likey.
3 little piggies on the table :)

As usual, I ordered a coffee and was pleasantly surprised to find that they served lavazza (RM6) !! Awesomes ;)

Ice blended lime juice. Though a tad expensive (RM5.50) it was really refreshing and you can tell that they used none of that cordial crap, this thing here was pure lime juice (hence a little sour too).

Water was complimentary and served in wine bottles. Nice touch!

Then came our appetizer: Gumbo soup (RM 12)
I can't really tell what was inside but it tasted like beefy minestrone soup without the tomato, with fragrant spices and spicy paprika powder. Doesn't sound like much but it was perfect as an appetizer.

And we kicked off our mains with: Pork shoulder steak (RM39). This was totally awesome man. Tender peppered lightly grilled steak served with tangy salad and mash.

Just look at it... So super tender and juicy... *drool*

Whilst we were halfway eating the owner came up to us and asked if we could tolerate spicy-ness. As we nodded our heads in unison he chucked this bowl of red thingy on our table which turned out to be HABANERO sauce. And surprisingly, it was goooood hehe. Went well with most of the meat dishes.

Next, BBQ ribs (RM39) and like all mains, came with tangy salad and mash. Not as mouthwatering as the previous dish but yummy all the same. There wasn't enough meat on the ribs though, as tasty as it was.

Next up, one of their specialties: Chicken Pog (RM49) It's like some chicken and sausage meat thingy wrapped in crispy bacon strips, super sinful but super the yumz. This went really well with the aforementioned habanero sauce :)
The side salad was this concoction of fruits and veg and I really can't tell what dressing they used cuz it just made the whole salad so appetizing that my friends and I just loved it.

This... was DA BOMB. Bliss served on a plate. Roast pork (RM39), people, the melt in your mouth kind. XD
The skin was perfectly crispy and there was a perfect proportion of meat and fat in each piece and the moment you crunch it in your mouth..... wooo..... heaven :)
For those who're not that fond of that porky smell and taste, the sauerkraut when eaten together, masks the porky smell just well. Not too much, not too little.

Then we saw our neighbouring table having this dish and we found it intriguing so we ordered the Gamberi Vino (RM78) as well. 4 king prawns drizzled with cheese and soaked in red wine sauce. I don't know how they cooked the sauce but the alcohol in the wine was preserved and it went really well with the toasted baguette served.

And then we had to have dessert of course. Brownie with ice-cream (RM12) which would've been nothing special except they used molasses instead of chocolate syrup on the ice-cream.

Introducing the Ice-cream with rum (RM12). We should've ordered two of these instead of the brownie. Vanilla ice-cream on a martini glass with rum and laden with leong fun, atapchee, kidney beans and lychee. *Slurp*
