Hokkien Mee & Stout @ Online Pub, Damansara Kim

Recently I have had posts about places that serves pretty nice food, where you don't expect it. In Malaysia, it is not common for people or the general public to walk into a pub and try their Hokkien Mee or their pork ribs, because, for one, we don't expect to sell anything other than beer, stout, or whiskey......

One of these places, is Online Pub at Damansara Kim. For its description please read this previous post I wrote about . I just recalled that I did rant about their ribs and hokkien mee in that previous post, but did not have the right gadgets to take pictures of it in the dark some more. hehehe. Not to mention , this little pub serves some of the best Guinness on Tap ( no they don't taste the same in every pub).

To begin with, we were supposed to go to GYM that night. Its a suprise even to the pub owners themselves, oh... this is the first time you guys turned up on a weekday... I winked, and said, yeah.... we wanted some good hokkien mee, so we're here. In actual fact we were just too lazy to go to gym. What else better to do when you skip gym ? We drink and eat lots of great food... wakakakaka !!!!

Recommendation #1 - Mutton Curry Rendang with Sandwich. No frills mutton curry rendang, with potato chunks served on a plate with a few slices of fresh cucumber. After one spoonful, we we felt something was missing. and oh.. no bread....... With the bread it was just nice.... to counter the spiciness and saltiness of the mutton rendang.


Recommendation #2 - Their deep fried Pork Ribs. I am not sure how they prepare this, but it does taste a bit like their ribs were marinated using fermented beancurd (Nam Yue). Their ribs comes out hot and crispy. Just the nice kinda of food to compliment a Pint of Icy Cold Guinness.
If you don't like to take pork, you can always opt for their Chicken Bites or their fried chicken wings.


The biggest surprise for me was how good their Hokkien Mee is. Its done like the rest of the other stalls might cook it, same ingredients, in fact looking at this picture , it does remind me of my mee goreng mamak. The difference, this one has got loads of lard on it, starchy, and appetizing. I can't say they serve the best, but its good.

Nothing beats going to Online Pub to catch up with some old friends, have some fresh Guinness, and enjoy some great snacks. Another reason to come by, is to watch their inhouse band play, Wednesday(or Tuesday ah ?) and Friday nights (most of the time in gym).

When the band's not playing, they will belt out countless classic hit songs to sooth the background.

Did someone mention Guinness? :-) :-)

Bernsy said...

hahaha.... yes, yes... Guinness...

somehow, for some reason, after trying Guinness Draft at a few pubs, I still find this place to serve the freshest, smoothest Guinness. Everyone in that pub will tell you the same thing. I am hoping someone tells me otherwise that I am imagining it... lol

How's the pricing there?

Bernsy said...

gee, tough question to answer. The Guinness is cheaper than most other pubs you find in the main stream areas. A pint will set you back RM18... A whiskey coke RM13..

The food will find out and get back to you. If not mistaken they have a menu, but have not looked at it for a long long time. They will have a christmas party coming up soon, so perhaps if you all are free, we should go hang out... Free Food, just buy drinks there...
