I reviewed the regular menu of J&R a few weeks ago so please refer to that one for directions and pictures of the place. Today I will focus on the roast..
Choice of roasts is either pork, chicken, beef or a mixture of two of the meats. Erin and I both opted for a beef and pork combo RM55 (approx $17) for a starter, a roast and an ice-cream.
For starters is a choice of soup or salad. I went for the soup of the day, which was pumpkin, and Erin went for the salad.
For me, the main attraction of a pork roast is the crackling, and I've had a few roasts overseas where they have tragically omitted it completely. Luckily for me it was included here, and I was given a healthy portion of Erin's too.
The pork meat itself was slightly dry but was fine with a helping of gravy. The crackling was crispy and delicious.
Undoubtedly the star of the show however, were the Yorkshire puddings. These Yorkshires, we think, have been double-cooked i.e. roasted and deep fried.
These are great Yorkshire puddings and would be equally impressive if eaten in a country pub in the Dales. We could have done with a few more!
The beef was tastier than the pork in my opinion, and the veggies were also well-cooked. The only real disappointment for us were the roast potatoes.
These were slightly stodgy, and although still passable they let the side down a bit.
Overall - if you want a good roast in KL, this is the place to go - 4 / 5
