Smoking Goodness at Burnin’ Pit

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.

This is what we had – the platter which we picked had the brisket, lamb and jerk chicken. We definitely had to order the Mac & Cheese as our sides together with the Southern ‘Slaw, Homemade Beans and Mashed Potatoes with Beef Bacon Bits. What can we say, but the beef and lamb definitely melted in our mouths. And the taste is simply divine and it’s hard to describe it into words. There is apparently no right or wrong way to eat it – just use your hands, or the decent way of using the fork and knife. You can put the meat and sides into the bun or just eat everything on it’s own. And, not forgetting their signature homemade sauce – BBQ Gula Melaka Sauce and Peach Sauce.
Other than that we also tried the Burnin’ Pit Sliders. It comes in 3 mini Butter Brioche Bread with 3 choices of BBQ meat – beef, lamb or chicken but we chose to mix it all up and It is served with a basket of fries. The taste of the caramelized onions against the meat and a touch of chilli was an explosion in the mouth – a little bit of sweet, sour and spicy. If you think you can’t afford to eat all the meat, you can also opt for their Brisket Fried Rice or Brisket Noodle Soup.

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!
