TICKLISH RIBS & 'WICHES At Garden Mall Mid Valley
Attention All Pork Lovers! If you enjoyed pork cuisine cooked in any styles, then you are in for a treat for the pork-licious menu by Ticklish Ribs & 'Wiches has to offer in their menu. I was at their newly opened 2nd outlet at The Garden Mall, Mid Valley recently to check out a few of their best dishes cooked in the most traditional Asian recipes but served in new ways.
Ticklish Ribs & 'Wiches' owners have injected playfulness and vibrant hues in the interior and pulling off a winning combination with their food and quirky decor. Diners can choose to seat themselves comfortably in the pig cages or perhaps in the pig sty.
Fun Theme Decor - All Things Porky
The pig cartoons - mural on the wall is fun and entertaining - a clever idea to keep diners busy while waiting for their meals. I was taken by the 'Pig With Knife' feature and gladly posed for a good fun shot. Dining area in the restaurant is well spaced with cosy corners in the 'pigs cages' for those who prefer a little privacy.
Those dining in big groups with family or friends can opt for the benches with high stools that seats 6 to 8 pax on the table.

Lazy Bones Curry Pork Lard Rice
My top pick from their menu is the Lazy Bones Curry Pork Lard Rice, which comes with boneless curry local pork ribs meat cooked to perfection with a host of fresh herbs and spices all made from scratch.
Amazingly delicious Lazy Bones Curry Pork that goes very well with the pork lard rice and a dash of sambal, an explosion of flavours - it's pure BABI NIRVANA for me! 🐷🐷🐷
Oh yes, the housemade sambal was damn good on its own and I was seriously thinking if they do considering selling them in bottles for me to take some home!
Happily Hamsup Ribs
(4 Pcs With Sides)
Moving on next, another winner in its own right - Happily Hamsup Ribs. Oink-oink, to all the pork ribs lovers out there especially to those who are crazy over the salted eggs goodness. The Salted Egg Pork Ribs marinated to full-flavour with a crispy and juicy bite of the local premium pork ribs, drenched in rich and salty eggs goodness with a zing of the curry leaf and chili padi.
Just as how the menu stated in Cantonese "KAU HAM, KAU SUP"! Goodness me! LOL.....
