PRAISE THE LARD!
Well, that was the tagline that first captured our attention even before we stepped into Ticklish. Well, a porky affair awaits us that evening then!
One can actually head over to their website to get a concise description on how Ticklish came about. From the birth of their Sauce of Life, to everything they have to offer.
Ticklish is currently just about a month plus old, and is located at a prime spot at Sea Park. Know where Bumbung Nasi Lemak is located? Ticklish is just around the corner 🙂
Ticklish’s main attraction is their signature ribs. They also churn up pork sandwiches, and for the carb lovers, pasta and katsudon. And of course, one can opt for beer to pair with their ribs.
Signature Ribs in Ticklish Sauce [RM 38.00 for 6 ribs]
Small eaters on the other hand may opt for Half Ribs [RM 20.00 for 3 ribs]. Since both gNOMes are big eaters, Full Ribs it shall be! There’s a choice for Spicy or Not Really, and being chilli lovers, we opted for Spicy.
The ribs were indeed very well done, kudos to the chef. Meat was literally falling off the bone, moist and juicy. Melt-in-one’s-mouth. Enough said.
On the other hand, we felt that 6 ribs for RM 38 is pretty hefty, though the perfectly done ribs might be able to justify the bill. Also, we felt that the sauce didn’t sit quite well with us, but each to their own preferences eh? No hard feelings Ticklish! 🙂
Add On : Cheesy Sloppy Joe + Soft Drink [RM 8.00]
What happens when you add melted cheese and chili dog sauce onto fries? An amazingly-good sloppy joe to please the tastebuds. While we knew we were clogging our arteries, we nearly went for another!
You Braise Me Up ‘Wiches [RM 16.00]
Think Braised Pork marinated in Ticklish’s Sauce of Life. This one sure promised a lot. However when it came, the gNOMes were pretty disappointed as the vegetables really outnumbered the pork content in there. For a place that has so many “anti-vegan/vegetarian” signs, we were really, really disappointed
We also ordered the Oodles of Noodles [RM 12.00]. Pasta Bolognaise done with a Ticklish’ twist. Now this was really really good. On first glance, it may not look convincing, but it definitely was one of the contenders for the night. A unique take on the Bolognaise sauce really had the gNOMes fighting over this.
Kindness Cookies [RM 2.00]
Have extra cash to spare? Grab a cookie at the drink counter and support the underprivileged! 🙂
Verdict : Overall a very nice place with great food as well. Expect porky and lard goodness in every bite. Hopefully as time goes by, the menu will get more and more interesting as well.
