Malones Jaya One

Petaling Jaya
Malones Jaya One

Pubs claiming to be ‘Irish’ in this city have an iffy relationship with anything even remotely close to what can be seen as authentically Irish – Malones isn’t any different but it plays to the current aesthetic of the gastropub trend. For all its posturing, it’s a restaurant posing as a pub, not a pub with a restaurant.

Its modern British menu isn’t a revelation either; it’s the last ten years of British food in one tidy list. Cue the bread-and-butter puddings, fish and chips, and colcannon mash. Its saving grace is (no surprise) the boozing atmosphere. It’s a joint where pints (of Guinness, natch) will flow freely and late into the night. Boozehounds could do worse.
