One of the best value & tastiest brisket platters in KL & PJ are from guys at Cowboys Food Truck. Recently, owner Nizar has opened in Ara Damansara for brisket lovers to savour his tasty smoked meats in a cozy sit-in setting just like “orang atas”. We like!!
” This is the place meat lovers will want to go ”
Briskets are expensive because there are only 2 of them per cow and actually, they are a tough cut of meat. However, the toughness can be counteracted with slow long cooking. This breaks the meats down and makes them tender if done properly. The skill is hard & expensive to master.
But then again, Cowboys can give you 100gms of thigh slappingy good briskets with potatoes & smoked beans for only about RM29 per plate. Not only are their briskets are a level up in taste compared to their nearest competitors, it’s a far better value in price.
We also love the Roundhouse. It comes fully loaded with briskettes (400gms), pulled lamb (200gm), three different types of fried chicken and for sides, Cowboys legendary potato salad & BBQ smoked baked beans. The roundhouse can easily feed 4 people at only RM155 per platter, again.. a far value price than their nearest competitors. Giler puas hati!
A good brisket is made with time & love. The cooking process is over a long period and it is during this period where skill & labour comes in from adjusting the wood, smoke & applying the spritz which is basically “cooling” down the brisket with a spray of special mix of water and spices.
You might not know it but their fried chicken & wings are legendary too. A silent superstar! ahhh… hahaha… a blend of secret spices. They use only chicken thigh which helps keep the chicken juicy. Chickens are marinated overnight to allow deep penetration of their spices into these lovely thighs. And it comes in 3 flavours, Original BBQ, Garlic Parmesan & Mango Habanero. We love them all but our favourite is definitely the Garlic Parmesan.
So what if you are a carnivor with 100% meat all the way? Well, Cowboys have just the dish for you. Order up the Chuck Norris which has 100gms of briskets, 3 wings & fried chicken. No beans & no salads. Period. All for RM29!
We love to be able to have a sit down and be all “atas” eating at Cowboys without the “atas” price to go with it. Smoked by a humble yet talented pitmaster who got his appreciation of a good brisket from Dallas, their plates are definitely the best taste per value in town. Recommended!
