Butcher at Work, Do Not Disturb; Meatball Tomato Broth- RM10; Corn Soup (set lunch menu)
Surfin' through food blogs during moments when you're bored is a good way to discovering new places to have lunch the next day. Sanbanto Premium Pork is making waves as another alternative place for a porky affair. The downside however, is that the shop can only house less than 10 tables of 4 each as 1/2 of the shop is a deli and advanced booking may be needed if you want to get a table. Based on an open concept, you could either be watching the open kitchen or the butcher at work.
Pork Belly Salad- RM13; Caesar Salad with Caviar- RM19.80
I was at Sanbanto with my usual lunch kakis who enjoy eating as much as I do and we would always try new places if time permits, thus making lunch time an hour we look forward to. The menu at Sanbanto is just right- not too extensive to have you scratching your head on what to eat. The Pork Belly Salad is a healthy mix of fiber and protein, the Caesar Salad with Caviar proves to be a bit too steep on the price considering those are no Beluga caviar, just Ebiko.
Portobello Mushroom Cheese Burger- RM19.50
I had the Portobello Mushroom Cheese Burger, which fares much better in comparison with the burgers at Cristang. Love the juicy burger patty and melted cheese on top! Even the buttered bun tasted good that I would give up fries space for the bun.
Pork Bolognese Pappardelle Pasta- RM17
My foodie colleague had the Pork Bolognese Pappardelle Pasta. Pappardelle is a type of broad fettuccine pasta. Seeing that she cleaned the plate, I'm guessing it must be good too.
Bacon n Cheese Burger- RM17
The Bacon n Cheese Burger is a Chef's Recommended item. I think it is similar to the Portobello Mushroom Cheese burger without the portobello mushroom of course.
Pork Chop Pasta- RM15.90 (set lunch menu)
The Pork Chop Pasta is part of the set lunch menu (Corn soup + Mains + Drink for RM15.90). My colleague commented that the pork chop was good stuff!
Overall, it was an enjoyable lunch though I would agree it was a pricy lunch affair but well at least there's a pork place to go if you're in need of some pork therapy! ;-p
