There are reasons why Ticklish Ribs & Wiches at Seapark might make you wary. It’s near a housing neighbourhood, its non halal, and it is self serve ordered and paid at the cashier while the number displayed cues for your food when it’s ready to be collected as your order rolls from across the restaurant. Watch for the blinking light and the sliding basket of orders glide through the designated slide, custom built to send food from the kitchen to the collection bar.
Adding to the gimmicky potential, on any given day the main menu might include a diverse combo of pork sandwiches plus some few in house marinated ribs. Go through the simple steps and build your own bespoke meal at the cashier. And when your order is ready, you’d have to collect it from the counter.
Step 1: choose your meat, step 2: choose bread and finally, Step 3: choose your add ons. This time, we had Charcoal and Wholemeal (Pull your leg sandwich and Once you go black) with add ones; Fried egg, Cheese, and Caramelised onion.
Pull your leg (RM 16) is the tender pulled pork whereas Once You Go Black (RM 15) is a tougher textured pork slices with black sauce. The earlier requires less chewing effort. Together with the fluffy charcoal bread, and moist from the soft fried egg and melted cheese, was a to-die-for killer sandwich I wouldn’t mind returning for.
Pork ribs comes in buckets of 3 for RM 20 or 6 for RM 38 with very well marinated BBQ sauce of two kinds; the spicy and non spicy. Delicious is one simple word to sum it all.
The extras were interesting, but wasn’t too much of a pull factor. I would skip them on my next visit. The boring Freaky fries (RM 5) and the O.M.Garlic (RM 5) didn’t quite impress me but would be a pleasurable add on to the sandwiches.
Though it is primarily a great place for the porky fix, their drinks list also include beers on top of their bottomless self serviced soda dispenser so this is worth chilling out alongside the good food.
