Home of Sticky Bones. Big, Juicy and Tender.
That's exactly what you can expect from Morganfield's and their signature sticky bones BBQ pork ribs.

It's my first time dining at Morganfield's at Star Vista, it's on the second floor, quite visible and difficult to be missed. Taking the escalator up, you probably will be able to see it directly (depending on which escalator you  are taking)
The ambience was great and from first look I know where's my next gathering will be at because according to their staffs, this place is meant for gatherings and you can easily see it by the outlook of their tables layout. They have more of four and eight seats tables and chairs and their platters set, which caters for groups to share. 

This visit is to try out their new dishes on the menu and I can't wait to share with you guys right now. But right now it is time to gear up (:
It is a super duber cute bib that they issued to us and I really wanted to bring it home but they didn't allow it 
I've gotten "Busy Eating. Do No Disturb"
Kaman " Pork. It's The Meat of Kings"
So to fit into this place, I decided to tell them a joke before I start eating

(Answer will be revealed at the end of the post)

Soup(s) of the Day 
Mushroom Soup $8.90
Homemade cream soup with generous mixed mushroom chunks.
Served with toasted baguette slices.
It's my favorite soup because I love mushroom soups you can taste the bits of mushroom here and there.

Lobster Bisque $9.90
Classic Lobster Bisque. Smooth, creamy and packed full of shellfish flavor. Served with toasted baguette slices
I would have loved this soup too if it wasn't so salty. You can actually taste the lobster(just like mushroom bits) it was really quite good to savor the chunks of lobster and the only things that need to improve would be their saltiness of the soup.

Summer Salad $15.90
Watermelon chunks, cucumbers, tomatoes, mixed lettuces, Kalamata olives, Manzanlilla olives, Feta cheese and sundried tomatoes. Served with Summer dressing
This dish tasted weird. Combination of watermelon and cheese felt kinda disgusting to me because it's sweet and salty ._.

 Pop Corn Pork $8.90
Pork cubes marinated with Morganfield's secret spice mix and deep fried till crisp. Served with homemade Garlic Aioli and BBQ Ranch sauce.
One of my favorite till now. It's gives me the misconception that I was having popcorn chicken till they pointed it out that it was pork that I was having. The sauce was great, especially BBQ ranch sauce, however Garlic tasted a little too much after a few dips.

Between the Breads
 Grilled Vegetable Sandwich $19.90
Grilled pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, Cheddar, Feta cheese sandwiched in between crispy grilled Panini bread
(I have no idea why I didn't take photo of this, probably because I was busy eating so I took this photo from Michelle's Blog)
Anyway, apart from all the grilled pepper and stuffs, I find it to be quite nice but it doesn't make sense to pay and not eat half of what's in it for me though.

From The Sea
Pan Fried Sea Bass $26.90
Pan fried sea bass fillet, topped with Hollandaise sauce. Served with Pilaf Rice & Garden Veggies
(Again, I forgotten to take picture for this, so credits to Michelle)
The fish was a little overcooked so it's kind of tough to bite and chew. The rice was unique because it smells like Chicken Rice but in fact it is more of a herb rice.

Poultry Farm
Herb Roasted Chicken $21.90
Half chicken marinated with our special blend of herbs & yogurt before being roasted to juicy perfection. Served with Red Skin Mash Potatoes, Garden Veggies and Morganfield's House Gravy
I was surprised that their chicken was marinated using yogurt (!) and as expected it turned out really good. Chicken was very tender on the inside, and matched well with their Gravy. It's worth to try.

Sharing Platters 
(All Platters Comes with Free Chocolate Lava Cake)
Morganfield's Rib Sampl3R $116.90
Triple the flavor, Triple the fun
×         ×    Choice of any 3 half-slabs of Morganfield's signature Sticky Bones flavors
(Hickory BBQ, Tuscan Baked Spicy, Smoked Peppercorn or Garlic BBQ)
×           Grilled Sausages 
×           Garden Salad
×           Grilled Corns on Cob
×           Corn Bread
×           French Fries
This platter would be great if you liked to try out the different platters Morganfield's have. It's almost having a piece of heaven, and I love their corn bread, soft and tasty, shall try baking it soon too!
I like the Hickory BBQ one because the BBQ sauce made the whole rib tasted extra good.

The Carnivore $89.90
×         ×    Choice of any Full slabs Sticky Bones
(Hickory BBQ, Tuscan Baked Spicy, Smoked Peppercorn or Garlic BBQ)
×      Choice of any half Roast Chicken
(Herb Roasted, Tequila Spiked, Honey Stung or BBQ)
×           Grilled Sausages
×           Garden Salad
×           Grilled Corns on Cob
×           Corn Bread
×           French Fries
If you're sick of having just all ribs and since not everyone might appreciate ribs, so this would work out great, you get to have chicken instead of only ribs, it think it's all good.

Ocean Feast $113.90
×    Choice of any Full slabs Sticky Bones
(Hickory BBQ, Tuscan Baked Spicy, Smoked Peppercorn or Garlic BBQ)
×      Beer-battered Fish Fillets
×      Tequila grilled Prawns
×           Grilled Sausages
×           Garden Salad
×           Grilled Corns on Cob
×           Corn Bread
×           French Fries
Instead of chicken, it was replaced by fish and prawn, it would be great for fish and meat lover, also be more evenly spread out in terms of variety.

Stabbing into the ribs, bet they can't wait to have it too.

Drinks & Desserts
Strawberry Sunset (Pink)
Strawberry, Apple, Mango
Like it's name, ingredients, it is really very fruity, like sweet ice blended but thicker and sweeter.
Virgin Apple Mojito (Green)
Fresh apple, lime chunks, mint leaves, brown sugar topped with soda.
It's kind of a weird combination with brown sugar and I didn't like it because I don't like mint.

Chocolate Lava Cake $14.90
Moist, warm chocolate cake filled with rich molten chocolate. Served warm wit vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
Comes free with every sharing platters ordered.
I love desserts, and this is so far the best lava cake I've eaten. But I would advise to share it because it's so thick and rich you probably get too sick to continue after several mouths of it. It's really super nice having it warm topped with cold ice cream, as though having the best of both worlds in your mouth, totally heavenly.
It's worth getting the calories from.
And it leaks, I love Lava Cakes that leaks chocolate after you stabbed into them.

In between the food tasting, they had this rib-eating contest which turns out super hilarious  Seeing them eat makes the ribs seems so tasty especially looking at Michelle & Tiffany.
The brave girls getting ready for some ribbing(ripping)
In the Process of Ribbing
Video of The Rib-Eating Contest
You will realized that Group 1 are laughing a lot, Group 2 KaMan is like digging gold (LOL) and Group 3, Epic hahaha they totally gobbled down all the ribs (Y)
 Congrats to Michelle & Tiffany Wong's Team for winning
Them & Well deserved rewards (:

In conclusion,  I find that the portions are great and very generous for each platter, which is totally worth the money. The four of us having difficulty finishing half of the platters up, we need back up.
I think it would serve 4-6 men or probably 6-8 women, depending on which platters ordered. 
I am not a fan of ribs because I always hate stuffs with bones, and it was really awesome that the ribs are juicy, tender and do not stick on to the rib bones (!) ME LIKE
I think that besides the sharing platters which are considered affordable, the rest of the food might be a little too costly.

I had great time eating here because it's full of fun and laughter to be gathered at a place like this.
I would be back on 24th May to gather with my friends again
Hopes it's  as good as this time (:

The Star Vista
(Buona Vista)

Back to the Joke earlier on.
Answer: Because The Chicken Goes "PORK PORK PORK PORK PORK"
I'm sorry it's so lame I can't even. I can't.
And this joke is not racist k, if you really have to then BLAME THE CHICKEN.
