Down To Bones @ OUG

This weekend's dinner, conclusively settled: Down To Bones lives up to its caveman-baiting moniker, commandeering an OUG kopitiam every Saturday & Sunday evening, leaving hordes of us grunting with glee over a feast of pork ribs, chicken & lamb.

The reason to head here: Colossal pork ribs that look like they were stripped off a giant gator instead of a hog, emphatically fleshy & tender, capably marinated & cooked, with a glaze that's sticky-sweet but not sickly - perfect for primal, sink-your-teeth-into-this satisfaction. Each rib is served with a textured, creamy-buttery potato mash, sausages & some greens for only RM18.

For the chicken & the lamb (RM14 & RM16 respectively, including sides), Down To Bones' strength rests in generous portions - the chicken is closer to meaty than juicy, with most of its flavour concentrated in its skin, while the lamb is competent but not compelling. Still, it's all easy enough to enjoy, washed down with ice-chilled beer; with its attractive prices & no-nonsense execution of honest, hearty fare, Down To Bones has the goods to turn into a tremendous crowd magnet. Tip: Get here early.

  1. Not very complimentary if the name is used to describe a skinny person or one who has been losing weight. LOL!!! Wowwww!!!! You really took the name literally, and licked the bones clean!

    1. Suituapui: haha, yes, those fall-off-the-bone pork ribs were worth being a glutton for! deeeeeee-licious ribs :D

  2. That's very interesting pop-up stall! The chicken and ribs look so nicely cooked!

    1. Choi Yen: it's quite a brilliant idea to open this sort of bbq meat joint in this neighbourhood! :)

  3. Oh gosh! Those ribs! They have a great color that spells delish! I see the guy using a blow torch too. A bit out of the way for me this one or else I would pop by for a sampling.

    1. Phong Hong: hopefully if they do well, maybe other bbq ribs pop-ups will open elsewhere in kl! :) those ribs were tasty enough that i wish someone would tar pau some for me this weekend, heh! :D
