I had read about this restaurant from a few food blogs and they recommended the place. I love spare ribs. Many restaurants have closed down like Mr. Ho, Scarlet and even Hardwicke House and Mizi have reduced the quality of their foods due to the escalating prices of imported food items. Places like TGIF and Chilli’s have gigantic portion and sometimes, the ribs are too huge and grainy.
So, my family head over to Ribs, not very sure if the foods are as good as what we read. the newspapers advertised their set lunch costs RM9.90. I know those are definitely marketing gimmick.
True enough, there are no RM9.90 set except for one spaghetti chicken. So, we ordered the sets with ribs and chicken. I like their barbeque sauce and the baby spare ribs. It is very tender.
My second son ordered chicken cordon bleu. It is yet another barbeque sauce, grilled chicken with a layer of ham and cheese. Not bad, in my opinion. But it is certainly not the regular chicken cordon bleu that we are used to, i.e. deep fried with chicken with breadcrumbs and stuffed with cheese and ham.
The price for the set lunch is about RM22 + and above. It is inclusive of one soup, one main dish, a very tangy and fresh ice-lemon tea and ice cream. The ambience is great and service is friendly. So, it is a good place for a quick lunch.
Caesar salad. Not inclusive in the menu, order separately.
My other son ordered the mixed grill which comes with a piece of lamb chop, large prawn, baby ribs and chicken. Portion is not very big but all the above three set lunches were enough to feed the five of us. I have forgotten the price of this set but it is less than RM30.
