The Pound in TTDI

Been a hot sunny Sunday but there's no holding back from going out to play catchup with the besties for some tyre and fuel fun in Shah Alam. The hot afternoon certainly left us hungry and we headed for an early dinner food hunt at a new eatery The Pound in TTDI.
Missing one tamchiak who's on her flight back to KL but for now its Jo, me and Lil.
Tried taking pictures with my HP and its quite futile when the cars are making high speed donuts. Hmmm...this certainly does make the MRS look like it has 6 wheels. 

Today's food hunt brought us to the newly opened The Pound in TTDI. On the first floor of a shoplot, this place is not difficult to find with Secret Recipe and McDonald's being the landmark. For an eatery that has been opened for about a month, I am certainly looking forward to a more extensive menu though I must say the current is good enough to cater to most meat lovers - there is beef, chicken, fish,  lamb and pork!
Look up...and there's The Pound
Plenty of doggie portraits because the owner is a dog lover (this scores quite some points with me and my buddies)

The list of drinks is quite extensive but nothing beats a good pint of Guinness or Heineken on a hot Sunday afternoon. RM55 for 3 pints!

We start off with some appetizers. Chips are always a good idea. The Pounded Chips RM9 area  definite must haves. Old fashion style thick cuts of potatoes are nice and crisp on the outside and soft inside. The salt and vinegar are already sprinkled on it but I personally like it with more vinegar:D

The Pound Mushrooms RM14 takes a lil bit of time to be prepared but its certainly worth the wait. 2 juicy seasoned Portobello mushrooms are roasted and served with sunny side eggs. A perfectly executed dish that will thrill both runny egg and mushroom lovers alike. 
Simple and yummy
Egg porn?

The Pound Pork Balls RM9 may seem a tad expensive since its only 3 balls but its 3 very delectable handmade pork balls packed with mince pork, cheese and rosemary.
3 very delish pork balls.
Juicy insides...

Juicy and bone licking good The Pound's BBQ Pork Ribs RM24 is definitely one of the highlights of our meal. Seasoned with their secret marinade before it is smoked and barbecued, these are available in limited quantity...
Forget about using your fork and knife. Dig in with your fingers! Lick the bone clean. Lick your fingers clean too! Yummy!

Jo opted for the Wild Mushroom Soup RM9. Simple no frills wild mushroom soup topped with some croutons and served with a slice of garlic bread.

For a hearty burger, then check out The Pound Pork Burger RM25. A power packed burger with grilled mince pork patty, ham, bacon, cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes and of course a lovely runny egg! Served with a generous side of their awesome fries. While the ham seemed a tad hard for me, my dining companions went through it with ease:D
This is one of the burgers that I will not like to share with anyone.
Juicy mince pork patty:D

The second burger on the menu is the Really Cheese Cheese Burger RM22. A simple quarter pound beef patty with cheddar cheese, runny egg, tomato and onions. Nothing wrong with the taste but my obvious preference would be the pork burger:D

I miss having a lovely thick cut of pork chop. The Pound's Pork Chop RM22 is definitely another highlight of our meal. Its a lovely chunk of 1" thick well seasoned and tender pork chop served with one of the better caramelized apples that we have had for some time. Good to be eaten on its own or even with the house special sauce. We ordered 2 portions separately. While the first one came slightly pinkish and the second one was white when we did a cross section, both chops were tasty and juicy. No complains whatsoever as far as the pork chops are concerned.
Thick chunk of pork chop for the porky lovers.
A nice ratio of meat and fat for a juicy bite.

While the appetizers, mains and burgers worked well with us, the desserts needed a little work. And our guess was the crystallised vanilla ice cream ruined the otherwise good desserts.
Banana Fritters with Ice Cream RM7 was a hit with its lightly battered ripe bananas. 
If only the ice cream was nice and creamy then this Earl Greyhound Affogato RM7 would be the ultimate dessert for tea lovers like me.

For a place that's opened only for a month, The Pound certainly has more hits than many eateries that boost of awesome reviews (click to read my misadventure on Friday night). The total bill came up to RM289 for 5 hours of us sitting there. Why so long? Well, there's always lots to catch up between the husbands and the wives. Of course when petrol heads get together, watching the F1 together is always fun in between a few games of pool. 
No service and government tax (yet)
