Betty's Midwest Kitchen, Aman Suria Damansara

Sometimes, we tend to ignore the eating places nearest to our homes. Since it's always there, no harm trying it 'one day'.
Betty's opened its doors some time back, but somehow, I just didnt make my way there..until recently.
I was there for dinner, and the place was rather packed already.
Luckily for us, there's still 1 table available :)
Some homemade lemonade (RM2.50) to quench the thirst.
Refreshing with a nice balance of sourness and sweetness.
There were quiet a selection of mains- we finally decided on ..
Country fried chicken (RM13)
The chicken was very crunchy, but slightly over fried. The fried chicken was served with a generous amount of mash and lots of mushroom sauce, the combo was creamy smooth. The sauce was rich and thick, the pork bacon bits added some bite to the mash. Dragon girl, who dislikes frozen peas gave her thumbs up for the peas- it was sweet and moist- the 'freezer' taste was not there :)
We decided to have some porky goodness, so we order the Grilled Baby Back Ribs (RM28.50)
There were 2 large slabs of ribs, served on a bed of chips and sides of coleslaw. The ribs was pretty good, marination had seeped into the meat. The meat on the other hand, was tender at some parts but somewhat dry on other parts. I liked the sauce though, it's thick, aromatic and slightly grainy- a blend of BBQ sauce with spices perhaps? There were also another sauce served on the side- had beer in it. I find it ok, I still prefer the BBQ sauce.
Overall the meal was satisfying, I'll be back to try other dishes soon.
Betty's Midwest Kitchen is located at AG40, Jalan PJU 1/43, Aman Suria Damansara, 47301 PJ, Selangor.

I had the soft bone ribs the other day, not bad stuff. They were recommending the meatloaf to me, so I guess another visit is required.

It's a family run business - mum picked up the skills from daughter who is married to an American and lives in Iowa. There's also another new place on the same row - Rosemary Bites, but it looks more Italian.

Yup, family run biz.
Betty her self might jz pop by yr table to chat w ya!
I spoke to the owner of Rosemary bites, they are stil finalizing their openin hours. The last we spoke he said he is not open for lunch.
their menu is unlike Midwest's, more pasta and salmon, roast chicken etc.
But owner insisted the food is adapted from "atr" region of midwest.

Been hankering to try this place for a few weekends in a row now, after reading about it at TNG's blog - things keep coming up to derail me!! The menu makes a perfect accompaniment to classic bluegrass music, and a bottle of beer!

ooohhh, i'm hearing so much about this place! anything with ribs (and pork..hehe) is worth a try! prices seem reasonable, especially when compared to the more well-established porky places in town. cant wait to try!
