The Barn

This article is part of my Christmas 2019 compilation.

Special thanks to The Barn for extending this food review invitation.

The Barn is a chain of rustic restaurants and wine bars from Kuala Lumpur. There are 8 branches in total; all but one are located in Klang Valley. The sole Penang outlet operates in Gurney Plaza.
The Barn specializes in Western dishes such as steaks, burgers, pizzas and pastas. In addition, the restaurant serves alcoholic beverages like wine, beer, liquor and cocktails. The Barn has over 200 wines in its collection.
Since this is Christmas season, The Barn is offering À La Carte Roast Turkey (RM42.00) for a limited time. As per tradition, the turkey is served with cranberry sauce and honey grain mustard sauce. The dish also comes with chestnut terrine, pigs in blankets, roasted chat potatoes, Brussels sprouts and garden vegetables.
Meanwhile, Meat Lovers Platter (RM92.00) is the perfect choice if you wish to sample multiple small plates. The platter comprises of crispy pork belly, marinated fried chicken wings, char-grilled magro, pork satay, sausages (dynamite chili chicken and smoked chicken cheese) and luncheon fries. Dijon mayonnaise and satay sauce are provided.
We also enjoyed a half rack of Flaming Pork Spare Ribs (RM62.00). The ribs are glazed with orange barbecue sauce, which gives a lovely combination of sweet, tangy and savory flavors. The delicacy is roasted to perfection and finished with whisky flambé.
As for pasta, Fettuccine Carbonara (RM33.00) is a good choice. In this dish, al dente fettuccine is complemented with bacon strips and cheese-based creamy sauce. The egg yolk is meant to be stirred with pasta while the latter is still warm. I cannot recommend this dish highly enough.
Moving on to desserts, Crème Brulee (RM19.00) is a vanilla-flavored custard with caramelized sugar on top. Meanwhile, Chocolate Lava (RM25.00) comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Chocolate syrup oozes out as soon as the cake is punctured.
After a hearty meal, a nice glass of wine is well deserved. The Barn has fine wines from around the world, including labels from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, United States, Argentina and Chile. Customers enjoy house pouring wine for only RM15.00 during Happy Hours, which run from 12:00pm to 9:00pm every day and all night on Tuesdays.
Are you celebrating Christmas at home? The Barn's Whole Stuffed Turkey (RM380.00) weighs approximately 4 kilograms and comes with side dishes like chestnut terrine and pigs in blankets. The turkey must be ordered 72 hours in advance so that it is properly marinated. Here is an inside scoop: Get a free bottle of wine when you order through The Barn's mobile app!
