Special thanks to Morganfield's for extending this food review invitation.

Morganfield's is renowned for its American barbecue fare, especially its signature Sticky Bones spare ribs. The chain's newest restaurant is located at the external section of Mid Valley Megamall, just adjacent to Brotzeit and facing The Gardens Mall. The most prominent aspect of this outlet is the beverage counter that has retractable windows.
Morganfield's dining section uses wood is the main theme. Wooden tables and wall panels create a rustic appearance reminiscent of the American Old West. In the spirit of the Lunar New Year, the restaurant is also decorated with Chinese lanterns, cherry blossoms and spring couplets.
A small stage at the air-conditioned section is where live music is performed in the evening. To cater the drinking crowd, there are additional bar tables and chairs next to the drinks counter. Each table can be moved along a rail and can be combined with another to form a larger table. Meanwhile, customers who prefer al fresco dining can also be seated across the front entrance. Smoking is prohibited, though.
Morganfield's is offering the Tray of Togetherness (RM238.88) during this Chinese New Year season. Before the platter is served, diners are treated to a complimentary plate of Prosperity Lou Sang (RM38.88 for à la carte order). Yee sang (鱼生) consists of colorful ingredients like salmon, jellyfish, carrot curls, daikon curls, crackers and crushed peanuts. Smoked salmon is not available today, so it is replaced with cooked salmon instead. Also included are plum sauce, sesame oil, five-spice powder (五香粉) and pepper.
Moving on to the main platter, the highlight is the full slab of Sticky Bones. Pork is certainly Morganfield's strongest suit. The spare ribs are smoked with hickory wood to attain the distinctive flavor. There are 4 choices of spare ribs: Hickory BBQ, Garlicky BBQ, Smoked Peppercorn and The Naughty. For first-time customers, Hickory BBQ spare ribs is the recommended choice.
The Tray of Togetherness also incorporates several Chinese elements. This is well represented by tiger prawns that are flavored with salted egg dressing. The shrimps are crunchy and quite succulent especially when they are still warm. They are also garnished with curry leaves for the aromatic appeal.
Moving on, a whole sea bass is fried to a scrumptious crisp, and then dressed with Chinese-style sweet and sour sauce. Be advised that the fish contains sharp bones, so be careful when feeding small children. Overall, the sea bass is nicely flavored and strikes a chord with my palate.
Side dishes on the platter are sweet potato fries, pilaf rice, seasonal vegetables and muffins. The muffin is dotted with white and black sesame seeds. Although the bread tastes good, I feel that the sesame seeds are not as fragrant as they ought to be.
Mandarin Orange Plum Tea (RM16.90) is only available during this Chinese New Year season. The mocktail is a mixture of orange juice and iced tea, with a sour plum added for sharp citrus taste. A scoop of mandarin orange sorbet is added on top. I love the chilling slushiness that the sorbet presents in the mouth.
Oreo Speedwagon (RM15.90) is blended from Oreo crumbs, vanilla ice cream and milk, resulting in a thick emulsion that is quite filling. A whole Oreo cookie is added for good measure.
Meanwhile, the Sour Apple Mojito (RM16.90) is a carbonated beverage that is muddled with mint leaves, green apples, lime and sour plum. Sweetened with brown sugar, this mojito is a good thirst quencher.

Blueberry Ginger Pop (RM13.90) tantalizes the taste buds with berry-like sweetness that lingers on the tongue for quite a while. This fizzy drink is made from blueberry purée, lemon juice and ginger beer.
Last but not least, Orange Cyclist (RM15.90) is an ice-blended drink that comprises of orange juice, orange sorbet, yogurt, pineapple, peach, walnuts and honey. A slice of orange on the glass' rim serves as decoration.

The Tray of Togetherness is meant for 3 or 4 persons. The platter is available from 1 February 2018 to 4 March 2018. For every RM100.00 spent, customers are given a RM10.00 voucher to be used during their next visit.
