A friend introduced this place called Thomas Western to me, and we went there for a quick dinner the other night. As its name suggests, Thomas serves all the usual western dishes; chicken & pork chops, chicken Maryland, fish and chips, etc.
Hubby-to-be had the grilled pork chops (RM9.00) with black pepper sauce and magic potatoes. 2 pieces of pork chops drowning in sauce turned up, with a side of half a baked potato in jacket. The baked potato was unique in that it had pieces of potatoes that were scooped out, and stir fried with slices of shittake mushrooms and cream of mushroom. Everything was then put back into the potato jacket which served as a bowl of sorts.
I had the grilled chicken chop in BBQ sauce (RM8.00), also with the magic potatoes. Hubby-to-be fancied the BBQ sauce on my chicken more than the black pepper sauce on his pork. Well, so did I. The grilled chicken chop was pretty good, still tender and juicy with a slightly charred skin.
