The Brew House offers a fusion of Pan-Asian and modern western gastronomy, the food which ranges from a wide selection of meats especially pork, pasta, pizzas and Asian delicacies is as inspired and varied as its' brews offering. For more information and promotion, you can visit The Brew House Facebook Page

The Brew House Pork Gyoza

For our review; we tasted the Pork Gyoza (6pcs - RM12.80). Filled with a mixture of ground pork, chives, ginger, cabbage, and minced garlic. With a crispy skin at the bottom and a top soft texture, it is the best compliment with the beer.

The Brew House Salted Egg Fish Skin with Pork Floss

Another perfect dish for the drinkers will be the Salted Egg Fish Skin with Pork Floss (RM10.80). Fried to a deep crisp with a coating of salted eggs sauce and blended in with the pork floss; it is a delight to eat this snack with a cold drink/beer. Children especially will like this salty dish as once you start eating it; you will be tempted to take the second piece and so forth.

The Brew House Bacon Wrapped Pork Meatball Braised In Stout Sauce

Next, we had the Bacon Wrapped Pork Meatball Braised In Stout Sauce (RM14.80); This minced pork meat is wrapped with a piece of Bacon and deep fried; it is then cooked with an onion based gravy with Connor's stout. Served with a toasted bread for you to scoop up the gravy, its taste was indeed special.  

The Brew House Porky Platter

Another crowd favourite snacks for your beers is the Porky Platter (RM25.80). This porky platter is served with Luncheon Meat, Sticky Ribs and a generous portion of Roast Pork; which is cut into bite sizes and great as a sharing portion.

The Brew House The Ultimate Buffalo Fries

The last appetizer that we tasted is The Ultimate Buffalo Fries (RM13.80). If you have eaten Sloppy Joe Fries; you would see the similarity here, but at The Brew House; instead of Minced Beef, they used the minced pork and top with cheese sauce and pork floss. The Chef uses the Buffalo fries as these fries will stay crisp for a longer period of time.

The Brew House Seafood Truffle Fried Rice

For rice lovers, The Brew House has a few different varieties for you to choose from; we decided on the more special one which is the Seafood Truffle Fried Rice (RM18.80). When the fried rice reaches our table; the aroma of the truffle oil was enticing. Seafood like prawns, mussel and squid could be found in the fried rice which is then topped with Ebiko.  

The Brew House Special Nasi Lemak Roasted Pork

If you are a big eater and loves some spice in your food; you might be tempted to try out The Brew House Special Nasi Lemak Roasted Pork. Served with the usual nasi lemak condiments which are cucumber, boiled eggs, peanuts and anchovies; you will also have a generous serving of the Roasted Pork (Siew Yok). The steaming hot coconut rice was very fragrant.

The Brew House Lala Noodle Soup

The next dish we tasted is the Lala Noodle Soup (RM15.80). The Bee Hoon noodle is cooked with a special stock broth together with ginger, wolfberries and spring onion which is then topped with a superb amount of Chinese Wine. 

The Brew House Nyonya Laksa With Roasted Pork

The second noodle dish that we sampled is the Nyonya Laksa With Roasted Pork (RM18.80). We like the rich & creamy broth of the laksa. Served with tau foo pok, bean sprout and most important the roasted pork.

The Brew House Bacon Steak

If you are not fans of Asian food; The Brew House does offer some Western delights which are the Bacon Steak (RM19.80) as shown above. Thick Slice of in-house made Bacon are pan fried on the outside while the inside still retains a tender juicy texture. This steak is served with Potato Salad,  Cherry Tomatoes, Corns and Peas.

The Brew House Pork Bacon & Peach Pizza

Followed by the Pork Bacon & Peach Pizza (RM18.80). The topping for this pizza is caramelized onion with smoked bacon, sliced peaches and mushrooms in a thin crispy crust. 

The Brew House Pork Burger

Our final dish is the voracious Brew House Pork Burger (RM15.80). The pork meat patties which is in-house made was very huge. Served on the side are coleslaw and fries.

The Brew House Sunway Giza

For us, there are only 2 things to remember at The Brew House. The first is the Beer and the second is porky dishes that are served here. So, if you are game for either one of these; you will find feel at home at The Brew House.
