Restaurant aims to be ‘D’ place for ribs.
TOUTED as the “Home of Sticky Bones”, Morganfield’s has set its sights on being the go-to place for ribs.
“Sticky Bones refers to Morganfield’s method of cooking, whereby ribs are slow-cooked and smoked in coal and hickory wood until tender, then basted with a gluey sweet and sour tomato based mopping sauce.
“Morganfield’s has been known for its pork ribs since it opened three years ago.
The new menu was introduced in April, shortly after the opening of Morganfield’s most recent eateries in the Klang Valley, namely Publika and e@Curve.
By far the biggest Morganfield’s restaurant in Malaysia, the 6,000 sq ft store in e@Curve features a two-storey dining area that can accommodate some 250 patrons, a stage for live band performances and a large bar.
The restaurant group that has an “American dining with European twist” concept also has two outlets in Penang and one in Singapore.
“We are opening three new restaurants by the end of this year, which will be located in Subang Jaya and Putrajaya, and another in Singapore.
“We are planning to expand to Indonesia, China and the Philippines too,” said Poh, adding that Morganfield’s, which is a homegrown franchise, is often perceived as an international brand due to its quality of service, food and decor.
“The restaurant’s American-sized servings makes it great for sharing. We also have sharing platters with different combinations of meat and seafood.
“Patrons will get to taste a wider variety of food and enjoy value for money,” he said.
Among the new dishes featured in the expanded menu is the Spicy Asian BBQ Spare Ribs with Asian spices and chilli flakes in its sauce, which was voted the most preferred flavour by patrons during Morganfield’s previous campaign.
For appetisers, there are the Onion Blossom featuring a bouquet of crispy breaded colossal onion served with BBQ mayonnaise dressing, Morgan Pork Skewers served with coriander chilli dip, and beer battered mushrooms served with wasabi dip.
The Iberico baby back ribs section offers Jack Daniels Glazed Iberico Baby Back Ribs and Jim Beam BBQ Iberico Baby Back Ribs, with alcohol infusion for an extra zing.
Those who prefer an alternative to pork can opt for lamb ribs, which are grilled and served with a choice of five sauces: Mint, Hickory BBQ, Garlicky BBQ, Smoked Peppercorn or Spicy Asian BBQ.
The signature spare ribs, which are available in four flavours including Hickory BBQ and Garlicky BBQ, are served in half slab or full slab portions.
Apart from that, the menu includes an expanded range of burgers, poultry and seafood dishes, tacos, appetisers and beverages.
In conjunction with its third anniversary celebration in July, Morganfield’s will be hosting a birthday bash on July 13 at its Gurney Paragon shop in Penang, and on July 27 at its e@Curve store.
Poh said both restaurants would be serving an all-you-can-eat-buffet from 11am to 4pm during those days.
The buffet is priced at RM69.90 with non-alcoholic drinks and RM119.90 for all-you-can-drink beer.
