The name Naughty Nuri’s is no stranger for swine lovers. From Bali to Kuala Lumpur, Naughty Nuri’s opened its first branch at Desa Sri Hartamas in 2014. They now have other outlets within Klang Valley namely SS15 Subang, KL Life Centre, and Atria PJ as of today. Those of you who have been would already know that food at Naughty Nuri’s are served in big portions – perfect for friends and family in groups. The more the merrier mah! In our experience for this review, it was no exception as well. I was asked to sample their latest Signature BBQ Smoky Spare Ribs and other must try dishes. Together with my loved ones, we enjoyed a wonderful Naughty Nuri “pig-out”!
Started our evening with their Devilish Porky Cheesy Nachos. A combination of everything I like; pork, cheese and nachos. This is always a good choice of snack to go along with your beer or cocktail. In this case, we got to try the Asam Boi Mojito and Nuri’s Punch. The Asam Boi Mojito is for those who love their regular asam boi drink, but with an extra kick. This is very unlike me, but I really liked the punch. Asam boi is part of its concoction too but without alcohol. It’s a mix of asam boi, lychee, lemongrass, lemon, mint leaves, soda water and Sprite. We also had a basket of Cheesy Truffle Fries which could easily be an addictive one with drinks.
Next up was Naughty Nuri’s BBQ Satay Lilit. Balinese satays have stronger flavours and aroma as compared to our local satay due to the different spices used. I noticed that they used lemongrass stalks as skewers instead of sharp thin bamboo sticks. This is one of my favourites here and it is a must order. Naughty Nuri’s loves to spice things up a little by having a “Lychee Martini Dance” each time their customer orders this cocktail. We were pretty entertained and it did light up our mood for sure.
Now for the main dish and what Naughty Nuri’s had been famous for, their BBQ spare ribs. Instead of their classic signature ribs this time, we got to try their very new Naughty Nuri’s 1995 Signature BBQ Smoky Spare Ribs. It is the same recipe but with extra dipping into their special smoky bbq sauce before grilling. I’ve always liked their classic signature ribs. However, this is even better! I’m not sure about you, but I do like the strong taste of smoked bbq.
I know some of you can’t live a meal without rice – you should try their Indonesian Style Nasi Goreng. Regardless if they had fried it with day-old rice or not, it was definitely good texture. Make sure you stir the rice well with its crispy fried shallots as it’ll intensify the taste of this entire dish. Another non-porky rice dish that we sampled was The Notorious Beef Short Ribs, braised beef short ribs in special rendang sauce, with sambal, acar and onion rice. I normally get excited with everything that was mentioned, just not this time. Let’s just say, the focus should be on their specialty, pork.
It wouldn’t be a complete evening of “pigging-out” at Naughty Nuri’s until we had dessert. Oink oink! A Volcano Flambé Oreo Bacon Cheese Cake was dramatically presented to us. Homemade bacon infused Oreo cheese cake with vanilla ice-cream was flambéed with Bacardi RUM on a sizzling lava plate, then dressed over with salted caramel sauce.
