Eight avenue bistro bar at Solaris Dutamas dishes up pork dishes that is truly satisfying on their recently revamped menu. Go for either the Karate Piggy Chop (RM44.90) or pork rib; both come cooked well with very little fatty edge being exceptionally juicy, with very little effort required to eat it. Beer Marinated Pork Ribs (RM53.90) and Honey Glazed BBQ Pork Ribs (RM49.90) both come grilled / bbq with Sweet, charry stickiness you’d want to luck your fingers if you are polishing it without utensils. The tender flavourful meat falls off the bone pretty effortlessly….you should be getting an idea of what it’s like right now.
Pastas are usually best when they are made fresh, and despite this missing element and away from traditional roots, they still managed to fulfill satisfaction. While it may not have naturally been the most famous dish in a bistro, Oink Oink Sambal (RM29.90) here shouldn’t be overlooked. The slight spike of spiciness should be very appealing to the local palate.
Other pork dishes include one that’s at a decent serving portion for either solo diner or sharing, and one that’s exotically rarely being served in most diners; Mini Pork Sliders (RM 19.90) and Braised Pork Cheeks (RM35.90). The lovely serving size made the first quite a delight to consume, especially when the accompanying wedges are so addictive crispy on every bite.
While most pork dishes were somewhat notable and impressive, Taco Bout It (RM22.90) and Chicken Pot Pie (RM 25.90) was a letdown will be easily redeemed with the Magical Lychee Pork Poppers (RM 28.90). Those pork meats aren’t the only thing with reputation because this starter is incredible. The idea of pork made even juicier swathed in lychee and a coat of tasty crumbed layer should tickle your fancy and this one here would guarantee to keep the taste buds real happy.
Communal dining would have the luxury to also order their Mission Chilli A-Con-Plished (RM26.90) but this sinfully topped thin crust pizza would require some extra laps in the pool the next day. No problem for those who wouldn’t mind those extra calories (man I hate those people), but cheese lovers are all going to be so obsessed with this.
Over the bar, glasses of creative hotchpotch of mixes of whisky, fruits, juices and syrups and all assortments blend to serve in perfect harmony. Don’t skip anything from over there because it certainly would be an awesome nighttime sipper that goes down a treat every time.
Lastly, no one would be able to resist the sizzle over super tasty rich chocolaty dessert. Sizzling Brownie Points (RM21.90) is brought to your table on a hot plate and sizzled upon serving and that really triggered the saliva gland and warrants a perfect sugar rush after. Watch the actions on my snapstories too.
