Bar B Q Tonight @ The Weld

Brain food? A wise order at Bar B Q Tonight, touted as Pakistan's favourite BBQ chain, now in KL by way of Karachi.

Enjoy a steaming-hot serving of lamb brain masala (RM25 before taxes), decadently creamy, cooked with tomatoes, ginger, green chillies & browned onions. Stocks for Bar B Q's brains are limited, so be smart & call in advance to reserve a portion.

The remainder of the menu is more conventional, hitting reassuring notes for admirers of South Asian cooking. True to the restaurant's name, there's no shortage of charcoal-grilled meat, from chunky beef kababs to chicken tikka, tender & tastily marinated with everything from coriander to garlic juice, mostly costing south of RM20 per serving.

 Capsicum-rich lamb karahi (RM18) & garlic-seasoned lentil dal (RM10) go well with tandoor-prepared naan (RM3) & lamb biryani (RM18), accompanied by salty lassi (RM10). Haven't been back to The Weld in awhile? Here's a good reason to go.

  6. We used to eat lamb brains as kids when we lived in the country - nose to tail eating. I don't think I've ever ordered them as an adult though.

  10. Nice pics and review, As someone who grew up with this chain, I would highly recommend a visit for anyone and everyone who has been charmed by the spices of the Indian sub-continent. Or those who have a restless soul for sampling new cuisines. This is the most successful food chain from my country, and the food is heavenly for all those that resent blandness and go for flavour. They now have outlets in UAE, Kenya and Singapore to name a few. A good sampler is their very reasonably priced buffet lunch and dinner - best on weekends. The buffet menu frequently has succulent mutton ribs, melt-in-your-mouth chicken tikkas, tender beef kebabs and a truly flavourful biryani as some of the main dishes. We normally ask for the exquisite brain masala as an add-on without which the meal seems somehow incomplete. Wash it all down with lassi, top it off with the desserts and you're one content dude/dudette. All my friends and colleagues from Malaysia and beyond are addicted already :)
