Best Ribs in KL

Written by Updated ago

Who doesn’t love a plate of good ol’ fashion ribs, or perhaps even some with a new twist? In short, ribs can come in different shapre, sizes and origins – whether pork or beef. But the matter of fact, we love them all. Juicy, succulent and bursting with flavour are only some adjectives that describe how incredibly amazing a good plate of ribs are. We also understand that even though Malaysia itself or more specifically, Klang Valley, has quite a handful of restaurants that offer ribs, it surely isn’t easy to find a good one. Hence, here is a list of the best ribs in KL!

Rankings of all participants as visible on our listings are solely voted by you, our beloved readers. With that said, we would encourage you to please vote for your preferred participants in order to ensure their rightful positions ranking-wise on our portal. Thank you!

    ‘Home of Sticky Bones’ is what they call themselves. And obviously, they have been gaining a pretty good reputation with their selection of ribs. Their signature, the “Sticky Bones” is a truly authentic prime pork-ribs, slow-cooked and smoked in coal hickory wood then basted in mouthwatering sweet-and-sour sauce. It is indeed perfection in every bite. Tender, juicy and flavourful simply aren’t enough to justify the taste and texture of the ribs.

    For some odd reason restaurants like to use the word ‘Naughty’ in their name – no idea why, just do. Regardless, Naughty Nuri’s is also known for one thing – their signaure char-grilled BBQ pork ribs. Juicy, tender and easily falls of the bone with a pinch, coated in an awesomely designed sweet BBQ sauce and served with an additional special chili sauce. Affordable and absolutely delicious!
    Tips

    Less than 100 ribs are grilled a day, arrive early!

    It may not look like much but believe us, it was packed full of flavour and texture. We begin with the beautifully seasoned cauliflower mash at the base of the ribs, followed by a perfectly cooked greens on the side and most importantly, awesomely done ribs. Not only was the ribs packed with flavour and a hint of spiciness, the doneness was spot on. Juicy, succulent and absolutely delicious! Two racks were simply insufficient for anyone who love a good plate of ribs!

    The name of the restaurant might be more suited for a night club. However, the food served was definitely restaurant quality. Famous for 2 things – their pork and duck dishes (obviously). And with an array of choices to choose from, full/half rack pork ribs, cured ham, sausages, pork knuckle, roasted duck, stuffed duck and many more, it sure is a cholesterol-prone place to be. So come on down to Naughty Babe Dirty Duck and feast your eyes (and belly) on their beautiful selection of fats and flavour!

    Might want to drink some detox-tea before dining here.

    If you’re sick and tired of the plain old rack of ribs, why not try a ‘Riblet’ instead? Miniature sized ribs but with the same level of flavour and tenderness. Set in a bistro-like ambiance alongside with various other porky delicacies and alcoholic drinks, Backs Bar & Baby Backs is definitely a must try along the Changkat Bukit Bintang stretch.
    Tips

    Do not randomly park along the streets of Changkat unless you’re prepared to pay those illegal valet fees which could cost roughly RM10-20 depending on occasion.

    Things to expect

    Simple bistro-like concept which is quite warm and inviting with a handful of alcoholic beverages on display.

    Best with

    Asparagus Under Prosciutto, Crackling in Dip, Racks Pork Burger, Racks of Ruin, Somersby Cider and of course, Riblets (Baby Back Ribs)!

    The Three Little Pigs & the Big Bad Wolf has been a common place for people who love pork dishes. Ranging from pastas to lasagnas and of course, to delicious ribs as well. Located at one small corner, beside (inside) Village Grocer, lies the Big Bad Wolf – hidden from commoners. Despite having 2 entrances, one on the outside and another through Village Grocer, some first timers still had a hard time finding it.
    Tips

    Packed during lunch hours. Free water given at every table.

    First thought- Korean Ribs with Cheese? Well, that’s exactly what it is, except maybe looking and tasting better by mile than what it sound like. A piping hot of sizzling plate being host to marinated pork ribs, flooded with glistening, melted cheese is certainly a treat to your eyes and a marvel to your taste buds. With its Korean sauce and marinade made from scratch in their kitchen, you can expect fresh, spicy, savoury, and sweet flavours at an unparalleled level. Of course, with each bite laden with cheese, there’s really no need for further explanations.

    Bricks and Barrels is the perfect place for a night out after a hard day’s work. The place is packed with people, especially during the live performance time. On occasion, they will bring various local artist to perform regardless of genre as it ranges from talks to comedy and of course, music. The main thing here is alcohol but they do serve quite an amount of food as well. The ribs which we had was well marinated and packed with flavour. Comes with a serving of sauce for those who wants more flavour.

    Ah, BBQ ribs are almost as perennial as burgers, you just can’t say no to them. Hoopla does whip up a mean serving of ribs, ensuring a generous portion at a reasonable price. Its beckoning sight precedes the prodding of your knife and fork to get the drool going, as it builds up to tender, moist meat that comes off with just a gentle tuck of the teeth. Surely, ribs aren’t really ribs without a staple sweet and savoury glaze that glistens the dish; a must try for solo hunters or groups of munchers.

    The ribs were cooked beautifully but it wasn't fork-tender as it was meant to be that way. Chef Yenni insisted on a rib that is not only tender but had a bite to it as well. The marination seemed pretty successful as the flavours were beautifully permeated. BBQ glaze was a nice finish as it adds a little sweetness, tangy-ness and a little moisture.

    This Bar and Restaurant clearly has a reputation for its nightlife and drinks, but they also have quite an impressive array of food. It’s safe to say that they specialize in a lot of pork dishes, which in this case includes the savoury Pork Ribs. The ribs here are served with a sweet and tantalizing marinade that will make sure your stomach growls beyond your control, with soft meat that comes right off the bone as you devour the rack like a king.

    Sure, you've tasted slabs after slabs of ribs; but have you tasted bullet ribs from a piglet? Well, not only will you get to taste this ambrosial dish here, but you also get to choose your portion straight off the chiller. The meat falls off the bone with just a gentle tug from the teeth, revealing an utmoset tender and flavoursome texture. In this case, resistance is definitely futile.

    It's easy to go wrong with ribs. Overcook it and its tough. Undercook it and its raw. Brussel Galerie's take on the ribs is amazing because it combines both tenderness and texture. While it appears tough, the ribs surprisingly split apart easily. The meat is cooked with sweety sauce which gives it that unique sweet but not overpowering touch. With garden fresh salad to wash the flavor explosion down, certainly a must try.

    Tips

    Portion is very large, might want to bring a friend or two to share! Also highly recommended to eat with your hands (wash before you do though!)

    One of the more obvious things to take note of about the oven-roasted baby back pork ribs is that it is plated very well. The roasted vegetables, coleslaw and BBQ sauce are neatly placed on the side, and makes sure that the star of the show (the baby back pork ribs) is front and center. As for the ribs themselves, they're generously coated in their homemade BBQ sauce and herbs, and not in manner that's messy. The ribs are incredibly succulent and flavourful. Pairing this with the sauce takes the flavours of the dish even further. Another great thing to note is that the meat falls effortlessly off the bone, which makes eating an even greater pleasure.

    Tips

    Carefully cut the ribs as its difficult to tell where the bones are while cutting.

    Things to expect

    A steak knife will also be given to help with the cutting of the ribs.

    Best with

    Have the coleslaw on the side to help cut through some of the richness in the dish.
