Rubs BBQ Smokehouse @ Kurau, Bangsar

Bangsar's latest restaurant on Lorong Kurau is all fired up with smoked specialities, served in a pleasant two-level setting, staffed by a welcoming team.

Our favourite orders here are the hot, hearty & meaty bowls of risotto with smoked duck & slow-cooked egg (RM42.90) & smoked beef short ribs braised in their own jus with gnocchi & veggies (RM96.90). Rubs' recipes prove competently prepared, from the barramundi with smoked calamari, young corn & sweet corn puree in seafood broth (RM68.90) to the roast chicken with fries (RM48.90), with the caveat that the smoky flavours turn out to be a tad tamer than expected.

A frozen cheesecake with lemon curd ice cream might be the highlight of the dessert selection (RM26.90), while the bar's signatures include a smoked Negroni (RM33.90) & Martini (RM36.90).

  3. The moment I read...smoked specialities....I'm already 'in'! ;) I recently had smoked spatchcock (from a Josper oven) that was just fantastic. That barramundi and calamari would be my first pick ^.^ So, what kind of smoker do they use here by the way?

    1. Contact.ewew: i actually don't know what smoker they use here - i'd be happy if they boost the smoky factor, cos it's currently quite mild and tame :D

  5. I am always fascinated and excited to dine inside restaurants which were converted from old houses or colonial mansions. They add a certain charm and makes the atmostphere classic and relaxing. Now I am curious to visit RUBS BBQ Smokehouse!
