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

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

Morganfield's, Home of Sticky Bones, has a large outlet at Gurney Paragon Mall. Located in front of St. Jo's, the restaurant benefits from its close proximity to the water fountain as well as from unobstructed view of the sea.
Morganfield's dining area places emphasis on wood and brick elements to present a rustic appearance. The indoor section is air-conditioned and is more suitable for family dining. Meanwhile, cooling breeze in the evening makes al fresco dining a viable option too. Customers who come for drinks can also mingle at the bar.
For the month of October 2017, Morganfield's is rolling out the annual "Porktoberfest" menu. Inspired by the popular beer festival in Munich, Morganfield's attempts to create the festive spirit of Oktoberfest here in Malaysia. Popular German delicacies, particularly those from Bavaria, are featured on the promotional menu.
Crispy Pork Knuckle (RM99.90) is one of the most iconic dishes of Bavarian cuisine. Known as "Schweinshaxe" in German, this dish centers at a large ham hock (front limb of the swine) with red skin mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables and coleslaw on the side. Serving size is too large for most people to handle alone, so get a partner in order to tackle this dish properly.
Roasted in an oven, the pork attains an outer surface that straddles between crispy and crunchy sensations. Meanwhile, the inner section contains a mixture of lean meat and ligaments. Cured with salt, the pork imparts appetizing saltiness on the tongue. This delicious knuckle goes fairly well with onion gravy.

Pork Meatloaf (RM34.90) is ground pork made in the shape of a loaf. The meatloaf is cut into thick slices and is grilled gently to retain delectable juices. Taste is further enhanced with creamy mushroom gravy and chopped parsley. Also included is spätzle, which means "little sparrows". This egg noodle is commonly served in southern Germany and other countries in Central Europe.
Next, Porktoberfest Sausage Platter (RM39.90) features four variants of cocktail sausages. Longanisa and Spicy Longanisa are Spanish in origin. Meanwhile, Cabanossi traces its origins to Poland while Debrecener hails from Hungary. Freshly seasoned ground pork is stuffed into chewy casings made from intestines, and then grilled to the right doneness. The sausages rest on a bed of mashed potatoes and are topped with onion gravy and chopped parsley.
Porktober-Feast (RM189.90) combines all three dishes on a large metal platter. The humongous portion is nominally meant for 3-4 people, but even 4 diners may find finishing the meal to be a daunting feat. I cannot recommend the Porktober-Feast highly enough.
Porktober-Feast also includes extra side dishes such as corn on the cob, French fries and garden salad. I think the fries go well with onion gravy, but ketchup and chili sauce also make fine condiments. At the meantime, garden salad is best paired with aioli dressing.
"Prost" is what Germans say when chinking beer glasses. In the spirit of Oktoberfest, Morganfield's is offering 1-litre draught beers at discounted prices: Carlsberg (RM69.90), Connor's (RM69.90), Asahi (RM74.90), Kronenbourg Blanc (RM74.90), Magners (RM79.90), Erdinger (RM79.90) and Hoegaarden (RM79.90). Each order includes a collector's edition beer stein with intricate decorations.
Carlsberg Draught is the most popular beer in Malaysia. Founded in Copenhagen, this Danish pilsner has many licensed breweries worldwide.
Connor's Original Stout is inspired by the original British Stout Porter. Black in color, the stout is notable for its creamy head and balanced overall taste.
Asahi Draught, or more specifically Asahi Super Dry, is one of the bestselling beers in Japan. Unlike most of its Japanese competitors, this lager moves away from heavy malt flavors. This makes Asahi Super Dry more palatable to casual drinkers.
Hailing from France, Kronenbourg Blanc carries fruity overtones with a subtle hint of citrus. This wheat beer best serves drinkers with an affinity to sweetness.
Morganfield's Porktoberfest menu is offered for the entire month of October 2017. On the evening of 21 October 2017, the Gurney Paragon outlet is hosting an Oktoberfest party. Customers can expect to see barmaids in dirndl dresses, live band performances, as well as sausage-eating and beer-drinking competitions. Similar events are also held at Malacca and Da Men on 11 October 2017 and 28 October 2017 respectively.
