B is for Braised…Mmm mmm…
Braised means to Fry (food) lightly and then stew it slowly in a closed container (taken from Google Define!)
I loveeee braised foods..and so that’s why we just had to try the Wednesday special of Braised Pork Ribs at:
The Grace Establishment
Opening Hours: TUESDAY TO SUNDAY 11AM UNTIL 2AM,
FOOD SERVED ALL DAY TILL LATE.
Price range: Around $10 to $35 or $95 share plate
This special Wednesday deal was spotted by my boyfriend – like Gossip Girl style. Any special deal and he’s onto it like a cat hunting a mouse. It was actually a great deal – $10 for Coca- Cola Braised Pork Ribs with a Slaw AND even a drink (choice of house wine, beer or soft drink).
Since we were playing sport that night, we had a nice big glass of lemon lime bitter with a plate of ribs each! Our friends helped us to order so the food was waiting for us patiently ..and unfortunately a little cold too but we were in a rush so not too bad!
I am using my Samsung Galaxy SII for my pictures, so the quality is not the best but you get the idea. (I’m looking to get a proper camera !) It was also very dark in there.. mood lighting. (Click to enlarge)
The portion size was OK for me but definitely not filling for my boyfriend. Still, it is very good for $10! Until..I tasted the slaw…
That was the letdown for me. If the slaw complemented the ribs and the flavour well thought out, then it would have completed the dish and be a contestant for the daily specials around the food arena. Unfortunately, the slaw was raw cabbage without much dressing or rather any flavour at all. Not a big fan of plain raw cabbage. I love my vegies and when I don’t finish my vegies, that’s not a good sign.
Of course, this is my opinion (and everyone at my table), so you might loveee it! Let me know if you thought otherwise or experienced a better ‘slaw’ night.
I do recommend trying it whilst the special is still on though – just think Braised Pork Ribs & $10 = tummy and wallet happy! We grade it a B for Bargain :) Mmm..
