Sanbanto Premium Pork - Butchery-cum-Eatery in SS2

Mum has been talking quite a few times about a butchery-cum-eatery in SS2 where she eats porky dishes, and then buys pork home for tomorrow's dinner. Being in the area, we drop by and pay a visit to see if it's as good as she says :)

There aren't actually that many tables, I think we counted about five. That's because more than half the shop is taken up by a butchery-area, and what seems to be a huge fridge/cold-room presumably for storing the pork. Decorations-wise it's cheery, and the menu doesn't take itself too seriously.

Speaking of the menu, there aren't actually that many items. We try the Sanbanto Pork Bolognese (MYR17.00), one of the chef's recommendations. Oddly enough it comes with what seems to be ... lasagna noodles. The minced pork is nice, and it's an interesting twist, but perhaps the pasta could do with a bit more sauce - it's too dry.

Next on the menu - another chef's recommendation - is the Sanbanto Bacon and Cheese Burger (MYR17.00). It's in a more traditional style than the pork burger we had at Kissaten a few days earlier in Lot 10 Hutong food court. Also quite nice, and the bacon, being pork, is awesome. Sadly beef or turkey bacon just isn't quite the same.

Coke, in a big glass, was $3.00, so overall the price is quite decent. Unfortunately neither of us was particularly impressed by the food - nothing special, to be honest. Mum says that the Ribs are to die for, though, which we didn't try.
