Our friend offered to drive us somewhere ulu for dinner, and we figured that the Handlebar was definitely located at an ulu enough place, and almost inaccessible at night without a ride. We did walk to this place during broad daylight before, back when Bottle Tree Village was still around, and it was a fair bit of walk! So much easier with a car 😀
We were seated by one of the benches, and it was fortunate that we had called in advance to make reservations, for it was full house tonight!
- Blossom Onions ($12++): Crispy and sweet, this was an very enjoyable starter for sharing.
- Cocaine Wings ($14++): We opted for 3 mild and 3 medium heat levels. Depending on your taste buds, mild was too hot for hubby, medium was very acceptable to our friend, and I thought that medium heat had a lingering spicy aftertaste that lasted quite a while.
- Righteous Ribs ($28++): The meat was tender, and potatoes were very nice! The side salad was a welcome green for our overly carnivorous meal.
- Slap Yo Momma Pork Chop ($26++): We opted for a mix of both fried and grilled bone-in pork loin. The fried version was really good, but inside the crispy surface lay a very thick and juicy pork loin. The grilled version was a tad too dry, except for the fatty parts.
We liked the environment, and it was very relaxing to chill here. Water was available freely.
