ronnycakes reviews: Breakfast at Sid’s Pub, TTDI

I am a strong advocator of proper greasy breakfast food and given a choice I’d have the full works every morning at home. But sadly all I get at home is just a boring glass of milk in the morning, which leaves me having to look elsewhere for my breakfast fix.

Sid’s Pub was opened by an Englishman who wanted to show KL-ites the same great pubs that they could get in the UK, and is located on the same row as Tom Dick and Harry’s and serves all day breakfast, everyday (unlike many places which just serve breakfast on weekends) which is convenient for when the craving for wholesome breakfast arises.

Décor is reminiscent of English pubs, warm and cozy with dark wooden furniture and attic style ceiling. Sid’s pub’s menu also offers an extensive range of authentic British pub grub with the likes of bangers and mash, pork vindaloo and toad-in-the-hole.

To start off with, we ordered Pigs in Blankets (RM16) for sharing. Tender pork sausages wrapped in crispy bacon with a side of mustard for dipping. This definitely looked good when it was served but tastewise, was disappointingly average. The sausages were a little bit on the dry for me and I believe that all good sausages in breakfast platters and pork patties in pork burgers (I digress) should be juicy and savory but these were too flaky. If the sausages were a bit more juicy these pigs in blankets would be delicious!


The main highlight: Greasy Caff All Day Breakfast (RM28): sausages, bacon, eggs, tomato, beans mushrooms, chips and toast.
Portion of this thing was huge, just enough to share between two. Same issue I had with the pigs in blankets, the pork sausages were on the dry side and sadly that kind of killed the whole platter for me because I look forward most to sausages and bacon in any breakfast meal.

Other reviewers have written rave reviews about the food at Sid’s Pub which leads me to think that maybe it was just on that particular visit that the food was a bit substandard.
Nonetheless, if you’re looking for wholesome breakfast food at any time of the day, Sid’s Pub can definitely be on your “to-try” list.
