THE STICKY WICKET Cricketer's Pub At Damansara Heights Kuala Lumpur
I had the wonderful invitation to visit the popular cricketer's pub ~ The Sticky Wicket recently and was looking forward to an exciting tasting session with their unique sports-themed fun menu. With names such as Quick Singles, Wet Stuff, Baggy Greens, Boundaries, Bench Warmers and The Sweet Taste of Victory.

Besides that, paying tribute to the Cricket playing nations, some dishes from 'Regional Specials' were given special names such as 'De Silva's Crab Kottu, 'Ponting's Chicken Pot Pie' and 'Springbok Boerewers'! Bet it'll get the crickets fan both excited and tempted to taste their delicious spread of dishes.

“All syrups and pureรฉs in our cocktails are made in-house such as our salted carrot puree, toasted barley and grapefruit sorbet, which are mixed with hand-chipped ice and premium mixers. Our innovative, handcrafted cocktails are made with top shelf spirits so expect unique, refreshing drinks suitable for our weather and taste buds,” Abbi explained.

Complementing the drinks is a combination of traditional English pub grub, regional dishes from cricket playing countries, influenced by cricket playing nations around the world. Here are some of the mouth-watering dishes I have the chance to check out during my tasting recently.

QUICK SINGLES
More-Ish Chips RM 17
MORE-ISH CHIPS
RM 17
(Extra More-Ish sauce RM 10)


More-Ish Chips ~ Basket of chips with a spicy salted egg yolk dip. Made from scratch, their potatoes chips or fries are thick and hand-cut with sauces made fresh. Never underestimate their unassuming spicy salted egg yolk sauce which packs a punch upon the first bite.

MORE-ISH CHIPS RM 17
Rich and creamy, you are bound to scoop up more sauce than ever as this can get quite addictive especially with the fries. They are well-prepared for extra dipping sauce if required for a small price of RM 10, you can order another bowl of their delicious More-Ish sauce! Definitely a Must-Try for fries lovers ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Moving on to some seafood cuisine, the Sachin's Garlic Prawns ~ Pan-seared with caramelised garlic and chilli confetti is another tasty dish for sharing, with whole plump meaty prawns, served with fragrant and flavourful minced garlic and shallots toppings that provide a nice balance to the simple pan-fried prawns, making this a palatable appetiser.

Pastry lovers can check out their 100% lamb sausage rolls wrapped in a light pastry with Jamaican jerk spices. Kindly note that they are baked to order, therefore kindly allow at least 20 minutes of waiting time to be served.

You see, I found the lamb sausages on the salty side but it's so to suit the taste buds of drinkers. I was told this lovely bite is an excellent complement to cocktails and beer.

BOUNDARIES
THE GREAT BRITISH COD & CHIPS
RM 42 

The absolute epitome of comfort food, though, would have to be the signature dish of The Great British Cod & Chips ~ Beer-battered and served with thick-cut chips and mushy peas. 

200 - 250gm
Big Chunks Of Ocean Fresh Cod
  
Personal Favourite ~ Fresh Flaky Cod

Battered chunks of fresh flaky cod combine nicely with hand-cut fries, tartar and green peas dippings. The appeal of the fish & chips is heavily dependent on the right choice of fish, so flaky, flavourful Cod works nicely. 

Mushy Peas & Tartar Sauce

THE GASTROPUB BEEF RIB BURGER 
RM 39

The Gastropub Beef Rib Burger also hit the spot, came with a thick melt-the-mouth braised short rib patty, topped with caramelised onions - which has a lovely sweetness from being cooked till soft and well-flavoured. Rockets and Mac n Cheese Waffle complete the whole dish. While you can taste the chunky beef patty, a little more tenderness would go a long way!

CRISPY LAMB SHANK  RM 55
CRISPY LAMB SHANK 
RM 55 

One fancying lamb may order Crispy Lamb Shank. The lamb is served on a herb-infused mash with naughty bean sauce. As for the cooking process of the meat, The Sticky Wicket makes no compromise for quality and taste. ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–

Crisp on the outside with tender meat on the inside, the cooking process locks the flavours into the meat besides breaking down the muscle and tendons, making the meat ever juicer and succulent. The tenderness of the lamb goes well with the herb-infused mash and naughty bean sauce. Hubby's favourite indeed, the lamb shank was lick to the bones that night! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
