Ribs By Vintry @ Bukit Damansara

Always a fan of good ribs, be it lamb, beef or pork, I'm always on the lookout for some nice eateries. A couple of days back, I had the opportunity to dine at Ribs By Vintry in Bukit Damansara with a group of fellow friends. Situated in a rather cozy neighborhood, the restaurant itself gives out a very relaxing environment.

Located in the unassuming area of Jalan Kasah in Medan Damansara, a stone's throw away from the bustle of Kuala Lumpur's peak hour traffic; Ribs by Vintry occupies two shop lots of 2,000 sq ft, which allows a decent non-smoking section perfect for families.

Arriving at Ribs by Vintry on a rainy evening, it was a nice sight, to be able to head into the comfortable restaurant with warm yellow lighting. The interior of Ribs marries contemporary and rustic for a comfortable suburban effect with its exposed brick walls, comfortable settees and soft, warm lighting. The ambience is serene with a wholesome family-friendly restaurant feel. It wasn't long before we were served with many of Ribs' signature dishes. Do check them out below. 


#1 Vintry Roast Pork - RM8/100g
#1 Vintry Roast Pork - RM8/100g


Our 'appetizer' came in the form of Ribs' signature dish, the Vintry Roast Pork. In fact I was told by my fellow friend that this dish was her favourite dish at Vintry. Roasted and crackled, using their traditional home made recipe, this was indeed a yummy dish. I like the fact the meat wasn't too fat, and had all the trademarks of a good roast pork, crispy on the outside, moist and soft on the inside.

My first time having the Beef Carpaccio was a couple of months back, and it hit a note with me. Here at Ribs by Vintry, the Beef Carpaccio tasted as good as it looks. Served with sliced Parmesan cheese, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, I found a taste for raw beef that I never thought I had. The Duck Rilettes was good as well, served with baguette slices, these were good cold starters to whet our appetite for more good things to come. 


#4 Spicy Chilli Mussel Soup

Up next was the soup of the day, something I'm told wasn't in the menu yet, the Spicy Chilli Mussel Soup. Now I'm not a very big fan of mussels, hence I just had a try at the soup itself. It was pretty okay, with lots of garlic taste. Spicy, yet not too overbearing, I would think this dish will sit well with mussel lovers. 


#5 Grilled Portobello Mushroom - RM29
#5 Grilled Portobello Mushroom - RM29

Mushroom lovers unite! Served in truffle oil, Ribs' Grilled Portobello Mushroom came beautifully served. It wasn't exactly a piping hot dish, but eating it at room temperature was good. The portobello mushroom had a certain taste and texture to it, not found in our usual button mushrooms and whatnot. 


#6 Chicken Pesto Aglio Olio - RM32
#6 Chef Pasta - RM36

If you're a pasta person, then try their Chef Pasta. I personally didn't fancy much of this dish. It was basically a tomato-based spaghetti pan-fried with Taiwanese sausages, bacon mushrooms and pork croutons. The taste didn't really appeal to me probably because it was a tad too sweet for me. 


#7 Rosemary-baked Baby Iberico - RM79
#7 Rosemary-baked Baby Iberico - RM79


The Rosemary-baked Baby Iberico or in simple layman's term, rosemary-baked baby oink, came in a rather long dish together with baked potatoes and garden vegetables. Honey glazed, the rosemary herbs really brought out its flavour. Pretty good dish if you asked me. 


#8 Rosemary Baked Chicken - RM36

Another Rosemary flavoured dish, Ribs by Vintry's Rosemary Baked Chicken was a no frills basic chicken thigh with chanterelle mushroom cream. The chicken thigh is baked to tender perfection, literally melting in our mouth.

The Braised Beef Ribs that was served next got me thinking it was lamb instead of beef because it was so tender. Braised and infused with red wine herb sauce, the heavy lamb taste was lesser in this dish, which is a good thing. Ribs By Vintry's Sakura Pork Steak was a dish not yet in the menu, something I loved to bits. With cut apples on top of the meat, it tasted like any beef steak, but was made from pork instead. I love the fatty parts which went well with the lean portion of the meat. 


#11 BBQ Pork Ribs - RM42 (S), RM52 (L)

An all time favourite at Ribs by Vintry, the BBQ Pork Ribs came in a rather big portion, as shown in above picture. The meat was juicy enough, prompting me to hold it like a caveman, eating it clean off the bone. Now if only I can have dishes like these everyday. 


#12 Rum & Raisin Waffle - RM19

We ended the meal with Ribs' Rum & Raisin Waffle. Made a' la minute, fresh from the kitchen, this was a very nice end to a great meal out at Ribs by Vintry. The ice-cream on top melted on to the waffle, adding lots of sweetness to the already sweet dessert. Overall, I think this is a good spot to have a nice dinner with your loved ones. Do check out Ribs By Vintry at Bukit Damansara should you be in the vicinity..
