近期新山人气爆灯的西餐厅非大排长龙的Morganfield’s莫属！Morganfield’s 美式猪肋排餐厅进军大马已有四年之久，在大马拥有10家分行，而位于新山茂奥斯丁 (Mount Austin) 的这家则是柔佛州唯一的分行哦（大人再也不必以羡慕的眼神遥望京城啦）！
Morganfield’s 堪称大马肋排专家，虽标榜以猪肋排为主，店内餐单也贴心融入欧美风味美食。此外，Morganfield’s 也不定期推出创新菜式迎合大众，势必让食客吃出惊喜感！
Having been delivering delicious and tender BBQ pork ribs to patrons in Malaysia for over four years, Morganfield’s is moving at a rapid pace to satiate the palates of ribs lovers with the opening of its 10th outlet at Mount Austin – the only outlet in Johor, so there’s no need now to cast any envious glance further north or just across the causeway.
Inspired by the American Midwest’s blues-jazz music and vibrant food scene, surprisingly Morganfield’s is actually a local franchise that is home to “Sticky Bones” – delectable pork ribs that would spur you to pick each and every bone clean, while their varied menu also includes all kinds of European and American-influenced fare, such as burgers, pork schnitzel, beer-battered fish fillets, chicken foldovers and more.
美式风格装潢设计 The all-American diner-esque
Morganfield’s exudes an American Midwest vibe from the 1970’s, with its wood panel walls and furniture specially selected, mix and match with wooden elements and earthy tone to sum up a raw and rustic touch. The overall retro ambience and classic American dishes were so well replicated that we might have just thought we have been teleported to America for dinner.

The restaurant also comes with a full length bar, designed for drinkers who love a bit of booze, or the rest of us with a variety of other beverages ranging from cocktails, wines, juices to chilled blended coolers. The dining area is separated into indoor and alfresco, with long tables and benches for larger dining group to enjoy, so we can really drink and eat to our hearts’ content!
特大份猪肋排拼盘 Sharing Platters – The Carnivore
看官们您看看～这份量实在是太大了吧！这根本就是和自己的胃作对啊！大人心想Morganfield’s 之所以推出这特大份的拼盘，应该是要配合欧美人的食量吧？但对于身为亚洲人的咱们，食量真的得打几折！别担心～ 没有大食量，大人有的当然是好朋友啦！正所谓好东西一定要和好友分享的啊！(不然天打雷劈～) 。这一份适合3-4人份的 The Carnivore (RM169.90) 拼盘, 堪称宇宙超强组合！计有半只烤鸡、沙拉、薯条、德国香肠、玉蜀黍杯子蛋糕、玉蜀黍与必吃的招牌烧烤酱猪肋排 (Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs) ，据闻没有多少人能一扫而空哟！
店家的猪肋排是以 Hickory 木材熏烤而成，再涂上特色 Hickory 烤肉酱，不仅让猪肋排色泽亮丽，也让其更加有滋有味哦！原以为烧烤后的猪肋排，肉质会显得干柴，殊不知大人我啊只是用手轻轻一撕，猪肋排肉竟然轻松而脱！送入口内，惊觉肉质还保留水分，嫩得不行！与大人平日所尝的烧烤猪肋排，这这这…确有其过人之处啊！大人此时已顾不得什么仪态了，徒手拿起一根猪肋排大口大口啃下去！(请原谅看到美食后理智线已断的大人)。猪肋排这么出色，其他美食配料当然也只能乖乖当绿叶，味道尚属中规中矩。
Out comes the gigantic Sharing Platter which can feed the entire family, The Carnivore is one huge platter which comes with a full slab of Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs, 1/2 Tequilla Spiked Chicken, grilled Spicy Devil sausage, grilled Herby Hog sausage, garden salad, grilled corn on the cob, corn bread and crispy french fries.
Smoked over coal and hickory wood fire to tender perfection for hours and generously basted with their special homemade hickory barbeque sauce that really hits the spot with a hint of cider, the sticky, gooey texture that results from this process is what is known as their trademark ‘Sticky Bones’. Executed to tender perfection, the succulent chunks of meat fell off the bones so easily that we almost wanted to ask if we could exchange the accompanying sides for more meat instead.
Mind you, American food portions are always huge, sinful and indulgence. While Morganfield’s may not serve the most beautiful or sophisticated dishes, but their great-tasting comfort food are always great to wolf down together with friends or when you have a hunger pang. It’s also a great choice for a birthday dinner, night out with friends, filling weekend lunch, or whenever you’re just in the mood for some deliciously satisfying, flavourful, juicy pork ribs!
A gentle reminder though, make your reservation, especially if you have a large group to avoid disappointment or long wait.
