Betty's Midwest Kitchen - Aman Suria Damansara

Apologies for my muslim friends reading this, but it's going to be yet another non-halal post. Been reading a lot about Betty's Midwest Kitchen so headed there on Friday night for dinner.

Reaching at 9.20pm, we needed to queue for about 10 minutes before getting a table. The place itself isn't very big. Decorations are nice and the dining area is bright and cheerful - I like! Dim places can be a bit gloomy at times :)

We start off with Dog Food (MYR7.50). These are fries drenched with gravy, smothered with cheese and then baked. The concept sounded cool on the menu, but in execution, perhaps not as awesome - the fries soak up the gravy and get soggy, and the cheese was a bit on the burnt side.

The darling had (ok, it was my choice) Country Fried Chicken ($13.00), which in hindsight was perhaps not the best of choices. The chicken was well battered and juicy without being oily (like some fast food places tend to be). A tad on the salty side, though. Comes with sides of peas and a generous serving of mashed potatoes, and the whole dish is smothered with gravy. Nothing particularly special, though.

I go for the Classic Meatloaf (MYR15.00). In case you were wondering, this is a pork meatloaf. The loaf is juicy and quite tasty, and the finely-minced pork (and other things) breaks apart nicely in the mouth. Also comes with a small cup of chili-like sauce that brings out the rather unique flavors.

We go for Lemonade (MYR2.50) and Root Beer (MYR5.50) for drinks.

All in all, I'm a bit underwhelmed by the food. It's unique and probably not available anywhere else in Malaysia, but other than that there's nothing particularly special. And I don't get the deja vu feeling either, having spent 99% of my U.S.A. time in the North East :) Prices are very reasonable though!
