Best of Smokehouse BBQ at Vasco’s, Hilton Kuala Lumpur


We recently headed over to Hilton Kuala Lumpur for the preview of the Best of Smokehouse BBQ international buffet dinner at the hotel’s all-day-dining restaurant – Vasco’s. The Best of Smokehouse BBQ dishes will be available from 1 September to 9 October 2019, as part of the international buffet.

The barbecue buffet features different types and cuts of meat from various South Western American states, where each state has its own unique sauce, rub, and style of cooking. Texas is famous for smoked brisket, lamb ribs and hot sausages that are traditionally cooked over mesquite wood. Kansas City uses hickory wood, its own rub mix, and thick, sweet sauce for its beef brisket, lamb and beef ribs, chicken and sausages. Memphis is known for their sticky-finger experience with smoked dry and wet ribs, and pulled meats served with a soft bun. Alabama keeps it simple with chicken and soft meat sandwiches. Louisiana is all about Jerk Chicken and BBQ chicken.

Accompanying the meats are complementing sides like collard greens, mac and cheese, corn hush puppies, skillet corn bread, grilled corn, sweet potato and maple syrup mash and coleslaw. A really impressive selection of sauces is available including sweet mustard sauce, sweet and spicy BBQ sauce, Texas BBQ sauce, Kansas style BBQ sauce, Memphis style BBQ sauce, Carolina style sweet heat sauce, Kentucky style BBQ sauce, Cajun BBQ sauce and Louisiana BBQ sauce.

South Western (USA) type dishes a rather uncommon in Malaysia (I don’t count the ones you’ll find at the two chains in Malaysia as they are too commercial) hence I really took my time to savour and appreciate the various dishes. My favourite would have to be the lamb ribs which I tried with the various sauces. 

The buffet is priced at RM188nett per adult and RM68nett per child (aged 6–12). For an additional RM120nett, adults can enjoy a free flow beverage package of selected red and white wine, beer by bottles, soft drinks, and chilled juices.

Apart from the Best of Smokehouse BBQ dishes, there is also a wide array of dishes from the (normal) buffet spread
I was very impressed with the fresh sashimi and sushi which is from the hotel’s Japanese restaurant – Iketeru

The chocolate promotion (for August 2019) was still on so we helped ourselves to some incredibly delicious chocolates and chocolate creations like these chocolate truffles
