    A boomerang that you’re never tempted to throw. Lift up the scrumptiously grilled rib which is laden with tantalising BBQ sauce and fresh herbs and be sure to drop the bone glistening clean. Paired with crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw, and addictive dipping sauce, embrace till the last sliver of meat and blob of sauce. Tame down the robust flavours with their freshly brewed coffee in a charming ambiance.

Generously infused with coconut milk, the treacly curry isn’t too spicy, and the every ounce of the rib is succulent and tender. Best enjoyed with a mound of steamed rice.

    Elegant, comfy and grandeur, this are words that come to your mind upon stepping in this revamped bungalow. The menu definitely matches the marveling ambiance, where their Baby Back Ribs are not to be missed. The wicked rib is perfectly charred on the outside and retains the tenderness within, and is shielded with an addictive BBQ sauce. Don’t be fooled by the word baby, it’s a hearty portion that sits on a bed of French fries and romaine lettuce by the side.

    Relatively a newcomer to the meaty scene yet has taken the local crowd by storm. Not to be overlooked is their fit-for-two ribs, which is adorned with charred speckles that bursts with flavours, every bite has you falling in love. Accompanied with mashed potato that is artistically built as a pool for BBQ sauce and crunchy greens drizzled with thousand island sauce, the entire dish surely tastes as good as it sounds.

    It may seem a little weird for this Chinese restaurant to be in this list, but their Pork Ribs with Bittergourd certainly deserves a spot. First off, the pork ribs are beautifully cooked, where the flesh is still bouncy and firm, but tender enough as well. The bittergourd adds on depth while the gravy just merge them together. All and all, if you're here for some rice, make sure to order this too.
