Interlude - Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur

Returning back to the back then familiar ground of Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, how could I have not possibly ponder, neither reflect on my mayhem years? Those years when I was a sweet young lolly dolly who partied during the weekends in Taman Tun. The already sunk deep down Titanic pub may not have been my favourite spot, but hei, I was one of the customers seated at the bar, every now and then, I grooved as well. Oh-boy! Those memories definitely kicked in hard for automatically triggering a broad smile on my face as I took the turn into the row of shop-lots, facing the road. Great goody unforgettable old memories indeed, but there were undoubtedly some ugly truths too. Well, what do you expect when alcohol takes its toll, and Taman Tun by itself was also my food favourite haunt. Just a short drive from SS2, but once I uprooted and then planted my roots in Shah Alam, those memories I have saved in my external memory card slowly started fading. Not until I returned again on this particular Saturday. Bang! Memory bells wouldn't stop ringing, but I knew I had to let loose, let them go the moment I walked into Interlude for being amongst the rest of the food bloggers. 

Interlude by far is the 1st international Tapas bar in Malaysia. The brainchild of Rabin the owner, Interlude, a contemporary and edgy bar-cum-restaurant obviously have been drawing near and afar regular and new customers. With Rabin’s expertise and experience as a chef in Australia, coupled along a knowledgeable journey in one of the culinary schools in Australia as well, Interlude is where you can expect affordable-inventive fine dining  items and inspiring cocktails. Besides the various types of Tapas, worth mentioning are the Chilled Terrine, Laksa Bisque, Pan-Grilled Snapper, 17 hours Slow Cooked Pork Belly and homemade “Orange Cheesecake. Homemade, yes please, all dishes are made in the kitchen of Interlude. No two ways about it please. 

Honestly, as much as temptation rang high and massively wild for a cocktail, considering that I don't touch alcohol in the afternoon, neither do I have the capacity for boozing like I used to, alcohol too can rock my health and for a fact, if at all I start drinking, there will be no end to the road. One road or as many roads which eventually must lead back to my base in Shah Alam. I sincerely, I admit, till this day, I can't totally give up alcohol. Yet I didn't want to call for even the mildest cocktail. Instead I opted for Virgin Apple Mojito. Virgin! Believe me. How can I not be triggered again. Memory started playing sparks again. First love and first sex, are in tandem and are simply unforgettable. Duh! Virgin Apple Mojito sincerely quenched my thirst, subsequently I, sadly or happily snap the pictures of the cocktails fellow bloggers were sipping into. Torture! Major torture.

Thereafter, once  all the hype and hoopla of analyzing the cocktails settled down, it was the moment for food pleasure over the array of dishes which came cruising one after the other.

Beef is a taboo for me. It will I reckon remain to be forever. So, I have no comments on the beef burger. But fellow bloggers who took bites of the super moist and tender to its every bit beef patty, seated in burger bun, dressed alongside two types of sauces and some salad leaves, paired with onion rings, they wouldn't stop singing praises. As for me, in all fairness, I must say that I genuinely loved all of the rest of the dishes. Believe me, narrowing down to the top few is rough and tough, yet I think I must. Pork Belly indeed was a class of its own. Super duper yum. Tender meat melting moment and when eaten by lightly running it over the creamy thick, infused with herbs and spices sauce, listen up guys. Pork Belly is a must try for those of you who are hard core pork lovers like me. I bet you won't regret. 

Similarly, Quattro Pork is the other in its league of pork showcasing. Chewy, really thin and crispy pizza crust, elevated along the pork toppings and sauce, what more could I literally have asked for? You tell me please? Heavenly deliciousness. Pork Nachos too, given an Asian twist by the sweet, sour, spicy and cheesy sauce, captivated my food taste-buds attention. I must also include the Bacon Sandwich. All carefully and precisely put together as one filling dish, neatly tucked with obviously, as you have noted,  pork bacon, cheese and Guinness barbeque sauce. I guess then I couldn't avoid a tiny punch of Guinness Stout, is good for your health  sauce. These dishes were the winners for me, though as I have already said, each and every dish was a winner in its own category. Surprisingly, even the Caramel Trifle with its interplay of soft, smooth and not overly sweet tastes made me truly happy.
