Notification: The Hungry Hog Kuala Lumpur is permanently closed.
As the catchy name suggests, The Hungry Hog Kuala Lumpur is a non-halal establishment located in SS (Section) 15, a favourite hangout spot for burger fanatics of all ages in Subang Jaya. Unlike the hordes of pork burger joints in Subang Jaya, The Hungry Hog is open during the day from 12:00 till 14:30 (and opens again at 18:00) with a number of appetisers, main courses, pastas and burgers for a satisfying and pork-filled lunch.
A suburban cafe with friendly staff, The Hungry Hog keeps it casual without the need for excessive decorations and fancy knick-knacks. The cafe adopts a minimalistic decor with crisp white walls, bare flooring and mismatched wooden furniture. A few cute pig-shaped ornaments serve as decorations but overall, The Hungry Hog is a spacious eatery which allows for large crowds to have a meal together without feeling cramped and uncomfortable.
Serving deliciously homemade fusion porcine dishes, diners can expect meaty meals such as The Full English (homemade Italian fennel sausages, sunny side up eggs, bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, grilled tomatoes, and toast) and Southern Belle burger (pulled pork in homemade barbeque sauce and purple cabbage slaw). The Hungry Hog’s crowd favourite, however, is the 3 Little Pigs, a savoury burger with a healthy dose of cheese, a thick and juicy pork patty, caramelised onions, homemade ham, and bacon.
The Hungry Hog offers a handful of sumptuous dessert choices including assorted gelato flavours by Cielo Dolci, chocolate brownies with vanilla bean gelato, and frozen peanut butter pie with cream cheese, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce. Our top recommendation, however, is the Bacon Gelato (RM9.90) – a delicious combination of vanilla bean gelato, candied bacon bits, and honey drizzle, this treat is the perfect end to a satisfying gastronomic experience for pork lovers.
During more laidback evenings, diners can unwind with their favourite pint and indulge in a number of appetisers such as Belacan Pork (deep fried pork marinated with shrimp paste) and Keropork (crunchy and light fried pork skin served with vinegar). To complement such hearty porcine snacks, The Hungry Hog offers a satisfying array of bottled beers including Heineken, Guinness, Little Creatures Pale Ale and Magners Cider. Freshly squeezed fruit juices (RM7.90) are also available for a healthier thirst quencher though we highly recommend the non-alcoholic elderflower drink (RM5.90) for a subtle floral aftertaste.
SS15 is notorious for having limited parking spaces so it’s a good idea to take public transport or head to The Hungry Hog before it opens to avoid a rather long queue. With reasonable prices and a good range of feel-good food, The Hungry Hog is a fantastic choice for even the most unapologetic of pork fans.
