“Slightly Disappointed”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

As locals, we'd patronized Porkie's quite a number of times. Our visit last night yielded a disappointing result somewhat. The sausage platter used to be a sight to behold. A few types of sausages, beautiful presentation, generous sauces, interesting sides...and simply delicious!!! Now, perhaps likely to cut costs, the whole platter is so bare, so plain. Only one type of sausage is on the platter now, a few salad leaves and a little squirt of dressing, barely enough to go round the 3 salad leaves. We asked to change from fries to mashed potatoes. A little scoop served with no gravy. No salt, no pepper in sight. Price doesn't come cheap at almost RMM40 per platter (large). Somehow, the umami is gone. Sausage was also kinda hard and considering the price, it is hardly enticing anymore.

“GREAT”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

One way I grade an eating place is to ask myself 'would I come back here'?

For Porkies, the answer is YES, YES, YES.

Great food, large portions - very satisfying - especially if you have been on a rice diet for a few weeks.

“The menu has grown”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

Have not been there in ages! was there when they first open and noticed that the number of items in their menu has grown!

The ambeince is fine, open air area on a busy side walk with huge TV screens for football games. There is a lot of choices of beers from around the world.

Had thier bangers & mash and the classic burger. Nice indeed, but I noticed the porky smell on the burger.

Will be back!
