Eatinout told me Tony Roma's has opened in Sunway Pyramid. What a surprise, thought to go with Tekko, but end up I go myself without him, sorry Tekko, we'll go again.
I didn't plan to go Tony Roma's initially. I have a dinner appointment with JC, and we meet up almost at Buka Puasa time. It was bad timing, all restaurants was full. We end up at Tony Roma's.
Tony Roma's is famous all over the world for their flame grilled ribs. I have put a lot of expectation for this outlet. However then when I read the menu, I was kind of disappointed. Only 2 kinds of ribs (beef ribs) in the menu and the world's famous Baby Back Ribs is not in the menu, OMG! This must be a HALAL restaurant!
Anyway, we still dine in Tony Roma's. The light in the restaurant was quite dim; I did not manage to catch a nice shot. Let see what we had..
We have the Onion Loaf as starter. It's Spanish onions coat with bread crumbs, deep fried and served with BBQ dipping sauce. I reckon this is a nice one, the onion taste natural sweet.
Boneless Beef Ribs (Roma Rack, 2 pieces RM 48.90)
We choose mashed potatoes and coleslaw as the side dishes, from the picture you can see the serving is not too large, in fact I was quite full after the meal. The boneless rib claimed to be the first in Malaysia where serve rib without bone. The ribs is marinated with TR's sauce and grilled until tender, it's just nice. But then when talk about nice ribs, it's better to be pork ribs.
I've this Martini called Cosmopolitan, It was drink of the day, the usual price was RM 22.90. Cosmopolitan is classic martini mixed with ABSOLUT CITRON, Contreau, and cranberry juice, not bad.
Conclusion: if you like beef ribs, Tony Roma's at Sunway Pyramid is a good try. If you looking for pork, Checkers at Bukit Damansara still a better one.
