The Garden Slug @ Telok Kurau

The companion chided me for not patronizing this hidden café despite staying in the vicinity for as long as it has been around. They did a revamp of the menu lately and I guess that made the trip timely. This pet friendly place was packed with pets and people. Spotted a fair number of silky terriers and other furballs.


Clashing colours for the interior.

onion soup

Soup of the Day – Onion and Quinoa Soup ($7.90)

A new addition, this sweet musky tasting soup was easy to like. Quinoa is delicious on its own but in a soup, needs quite a discerning tastebud to differentiate. The accompanying bread slices were a tad too crusty and hard for comfort.

mixed grill

The Garden Slug Mixed Grill ($30.50)
Platter of ribeye steak strips, lamb loin, bratwurst, Real Mash and fresh garden salad

Portion is big enough for the hungry only, especially fit for the fickle who want abit of everything on their mains menu. Lambchops were a tad tough, ribeye thankfully better and well homecooked this really was, nothing too spectacular.

pulled pork

Pulled Pork ($18.90)

I tussled between pulled pork and a burger but the politically correct server did not make any constructive recommendation. This braised pulled pork was sweet based, unflavoured potatoes and a drab looking salad.

Mediocre food at best, it could be the dishes selected. No service charge and GST does make The Garden Slug an attractive dining place but with their average dishes, I am not so sure if a return is on the cards…just yet.
