Burnin’ Pit – is located at a pretty prominent location, one can never miss the restaurant. The exterior of the restaurant decked in black walls in Desa Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur, is known for their Texas style barbecue. Before you enter the restaurant, you will notice their custom-built wood fired smoker which cooks the meat low and slow and they only use Malaysian rubberwood and wood from fruit trees like rambutan, durian and jackfruit.
As you enter the restaurant, it has great visual appeal with the large windows and high ceilings allowing the natural sunlight to enter. The large lit BURNIN PIT sign above the bar area is definitely an Instagrammable spot. As you choose your seat, you will notice the refurbished furniture used throughout with either varnished wood or tiled tabletops. Even the kid’s baby chair looks like a throne from Medieval times. And definitely, not to be missed are the logs that are piled on top of each other which creates the overall rustic appeal to the restaurant.
And now, the best part of all… the food! Of course, Burnin’ Pit is known for their meats so this is what we had – the platter! You can customize how many types of meat you want – ranging from beef, chicken and lamb. And for the sides, you can order as many as you want – they have Mac & Cheese, Southern ‘Slaw, Homemade Beans, Grilled Vegetables with Balsamic Reduction, Grilled Corn with Coconut Milk and Mashed Potatoes with Beef Bacon Bits.
We also wanted to snack a little so we had the Grilled Chicken Wings and Nachos. What was interesting about the Nachos is the sauce, it was the traditional malay percik sauce served with some chicken bits. Pretty unique, huh? Everything about our snack was great too. We loved how crispy and tasty the chicken wings were as it’s slathered in the Gula Melaka sauce. To wash that all down, we had the Cuban drink – Coca Cola, mint and lychee and a Mango Milkshake.
And of course, dessert – we ordered the Apple Pie and Beignets. The Apple Pie had enough apples in them and the dough was just right. With a dollop of ice cream, it was pure perfection. Although not many people are familiar with Beignets, we had to try them. Beignets are square shaped pieces of dough that are deep fried and sprinkled with confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon. We warn you, it’s addictive!
