Travel may be still restricted but you can indulge in the very best American BBQ right here in the Klang Valley – we’re talking delicious smoky ribs, brisket, burgers, and more!

Summer and grilling go hand-in-hand. Hosting a barbecue party is serious business, only if you know how to execute it correctly. While some can’t master the grill, you can still enjoy the simple pleasures of a thick-sliced brisket because KL is home to several stellar American BBQ eateries. A classic American BBQ usually entails tender, flavourful, and seasoned meats, but it is the sweet and tangy sauce that takes the icing on a cake. If you’re a meat enthusiast and prefer anything with a charred and smoky taste, then it’s best to have your BBQ fix for a party soon.

Burnin’ Pit

Located in Desa Sri Hartamas, Burnin’ Pit offers a decadent lineup of beef brisket and ribs. If you’re craving poultry, jerk chicken is available, including ayam percik for a local twist too. There are other mains on the menu worth trying – pasta, fried rice, sandwiches, and wraps – but we have our heart set on the tried-and-true beef and lamb briskets. Its tender, juicy and flavourful fall-off-the-bone meat is a delicious treat, which makes us want to come back for more.
