Bermuda and Onion
Warm Sunday afternoons are best spent on the quieter streets of Kuala Lumpur, trawling for rare finds and treasures rather than in a busy, limited parking spaces shopping mall, well, my opinion anyways. I would rather search for a nice place wear I can park my weary bum for a couple of hours, have a satisfying meal, chat with friends or family and generally, watch the people on the streets go by.
I have found just the place at Bermuda and Onion on Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL’s street of expats, backpackers and overall, interesting forms of human beings. The décor theme’s very contemporary, bistro-chic with funky fans that droop to create a lamp when stationary. Run by Chef Max, this is a rather nice place to have good hearty, Italian inspired food.
One of the reasons why I fell in love with this place (and at first smell, too) is because what better way to pass a Saturday night induced hangover than to have crispy, greasy pork bacon with eggs, beans and toast. Yes, fellow readers, this is a non-halal, pork-on-the-fork kind of place and I love it! The pork ribs here are first-class too, with the meat practically falling off the bones and if you’re interested, you may get to see Chef Max debone a suckling pig. To some, that may seem atrocious or even cruel, but my reasoning is that its all part of the circle of life and if the poor thing’s already sacrificed, let it go down in glory – honour its death with the best spices, roasted to crisp perfection and devoured with a smile on the face and a hand on the tummy.
I would recommend this fairly new, pork-loving place to anyone who is looking for real bacon with their English breakfast (simply detest the beef bacon), some greasy pork with cheese meals, anything related to pork. You would definitely come back for more – I would!
