A new RIB House in Penang...

We saw many people outside this restaurant. A new eatery? Oh yes, it is. It is Chicago Rib House. I can't remember what eatery occupied this lot before. Hubby and I decided to join in the queue. It being a Friday, the place was packed. It didn't take long for us to be seated as there were only 2 of us. The place is very simple. Simple table with formica tops and rubber wood (I think they are) chairs. They are well spaced and that makes dining here pleasant. You can see families, couples, teenagers and tweens.
Ermm, sorry we didn't order this dish. That's what I said when the waiter brought this plate to our table. Oh, it is free. Believe it or not, it is free! A whole big skittle of deep fried mushroom. You will get this free if you order two main courses. Now, how's that for good marketing? This isn't just some nonsense. It is good deep fried mushrooms. You'll love the batter. Salad cream is also provided for dipping.

Chicago Rib House is only about 2 weeks old. That was what we found out from Vincent. He is the Assistant Restaurant Manager. A soft-spoken young man. Pleasant for that matter. We didn't know what to order. Everything is nice here. I decided on the Black Catch. It is dory fish fillet marinated in cajun spices and black pepper. Don't I love the fish? Hubby doesn't like dory fish but this time he has no complaints. The fish is fresh and very well marinated. It does not have that 'mud' taste at all.

Hubby went for their signature Pork Ribs. Ooooh, they are delicious and so tender. They are good alright. Heavenly.....was the next word that came out from his mouth. I 'attacked' and got a piece from his plate. Yes! They are very well marinated, grilled, cooked and still juicy. You get value for money here. According to Vincent the pork ribs come from Holland, the broccoli comes from Australia, the fries from USA.....in simple words....good stuff! Game to visit the place?
