Pork/Non-Ha­lal NEW Chicago Rib House 170-G-43 Gur­ney Plaza, Per­siaran Gur­ney (04 229 0763/www. chicagorib­house.com.my).

Named after the self-dubbed city of steaks and ribs, Chicago Rib House is the cap­i­tal of all things flamed, grilled, bar­be­cued and porky. The meats (namely pork ribs basted in orig­i­nal bar­be­cue or bour­bon sauce, grilled lamb rack, wagyu rib­eye and beer-bat­tered fried pork chop) are coated with crispy charred skin be­fore re­veal­ing ten­der, fall-off-the-bone meat at first bite.

Credit cards ac­cepted. Daily, 11am– 11pm. $$$

NEW Mr Pork 50D-1 Jalan Fettes, Tan­jung Bun­gah (04 899 6363/04 899 3636/www. face­book.com/MrPorkRes­tau­rant).

En­joy value-for-money Western dishes within this ca­sual, colour­ful in­te­rior. From the ex­ten­sive menu you’ll find meaty dishes in­clud­ing eight types of pork dishes such as grilled ribs and chops, lamb chops and cut­lets, fish and chips, fish and chicken cor­don bleu, lin­guini, mixed grill of seafood and meats and Hainanese chicken chop from be­tween RM10.90 and RM31.90. Th­ese dishes come with fries or potato wedges, coleslaw and, some­times, corn on the cob. Be­sides the rib-eye, we’d rec­om­mend the fish cor­don bleu. Although thin on the fish, the bread­crumbed layer is crispy, not too thick and the melty-cheesy filling is gen­er­ous. Fries and coleslaw are good and the tar­tar sauce will grow on you. A lit­tle tip on the sauces of­fered here on the side: Go easy on it. You might want to dip each bite rather than slather it on top to en­joy the fairly fresh meats. Aside from the friendly ser­vice, the real sur­prise here is that there’s a 20 per­cent dis­count on ev­ery lunch or­der daily be­tween 12pm and 3pm. The colour­ful, ca­sual in­te­rior of Mr Pork gets a bit crowded dur­ing meal times, so if you’re in a hurry dur­ing lunch, opt for take-away – the pack­ag­ing is ef­fi­cient and will al­low for tidy eat­ing at the desk.

Child friendly. Daily, 11am–1.30am. $$
