Despite its unassuming appearance in a bustling area of SS15, Hungry Hog is no stranger to folks who are accustomed to cheap, decent porky western food. It has established itself as the place to go to for some simple western / eastern comfort porky goodness. There are, of course, other places that offer similar cuisine / style such as the one in Aman Suria or Dataran Mentari, but truth to be told, I have yet to try them… sadly.
I have visited this place twice and on both occasion, I was there for lunch on weekends. Locating place requires slight experience but then again, with the existence of Google Maps, it should be as easy as ABC.
Its menu is pretty straight forward with appetisers, main courses, pastas and burgers occupying the same page. There are probably two or three eastern dishes in the menu while the rest are of western type. Click here to view their menu.
The Siew Yuk (RM11.90) was not fantastic but it was not bad either. It did not have the oh-melt-in-your-mouth texture like the one in Pudu but rest assured that the skin was crackling goodness.
On both of my visits, the 3 Little Pigs (RM15.90) was picked/ordered without hesitation. It has streaky bacon, ham, pork patty, melted cheese and caramelised onions piled on top of one another and sandwiched between a burger bun.
While I liked the combination of salty savoury pork patty and cheese with sweet caramelised onions, I wished they were more generous with the patty (thicker or wider) as it was lacking.
The bun was nothing great but the fries were crisp and piping hot when served. The side salad was there, perhaps, for presentation purpose as there was no dressing on it.
Came in rather large portion, the Pork Ribs (RM27.90) was probably the most expensive dish in the menu. Although the meat was nicely seasoned and was easily separated from the bone, it was slightly dry to my liking. The good thing was the char siew sauce was not overly sweet yet adequately flavourful.
Unfortunately there are no photos of Bangers and Mash (RM15.90), my friend and I liked it. The herbs and spices used in the sauce were apparent but it did not overpowering the overall dish. The pork sausages were of good quality while the mashed potatoes were slight chunky, flavourful.
Overall, there were hits and misses here and there. The ambiance was fine with lots of piggy momentos and photos placed as decorations inside the restaurant. The prices were reasonable for its portion and quality while parking can be a hassle on weekdays and/or during peak hours.
