M'eat US

Parliament Road, Pellawatte, Battaramulla


M'eat US down Parliament Road serves up some great BBQ for a decent fare.



A few mouth watering pictures of a BBQ pork rack on Facebook were enough to drag our butts all the way over to Pelawatte, in the middle of a busy week. Located right before Angels Cupcakes shop on Parliament Road, M'eat US is a fairly new BBQ joint that’s buzzing with customers.

Food & Drinks

M'eat US dishes out a great collection of western barbecue, including chicken, pork chops, pork racks, pork sticks and even sausages. They’ve got meat platters, which is a pretty good option if you’re dining as a group.

First up, we tried their Ribs Platter (Rs. 2700), which comes with a pork rack, 2 chicken legs, and 2 chicken garlic sausages. That’s one pretty big rack we got there! The meat was cooked perfectly, it was succulent and massive enough to share satisfyingly amongst two people. It wasn't exactly fall-off-the-bone soft but well worth the price. Generously glazed with sweet and tangy BBQ sauce, this one had a slightly charred flavour from being taken off the grill.

Firm on the outside, juicy on the inside, the BBQ chicken legs at M'eat US is a superb dish that well-serves its name. With the instant tangy kick that comes from the BBQ sauce stuck on the meat, it had a smokey, mesquite type of flavour, which gets even better with the crunchy bits of charcoal on top. The meat itself was tender, easily cut through and flowing with juice.
 
The garlic sausages were well marinated, and the garlic flavor nicely emerged through its soft texture. 
We also ordered a portion of BBQ Pork Chop (Rs. 750), which was basically two barbecued, sizeable pork chops, with the just the right amount of BBQ sauce. Again, the meat was cooked and seasoned well, and we had no complaints. 

Service & Ambience

M'eat US is handled by some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. The Philippine lady/waitress here is very attentive and accommodating. With genuine friendliness and smiles all around, they made us feel very welcome. The food took around 30 minutes to arrive, which is acceptable considering it is, in fact, the time that takes to prepare a proper pork rack. 

The restaurant itself is small but spacious enough to accommodate around 20 people at a time, as it had both indoor and outdoor dining options. Every table was well lit, which provided an ideal setting to take some Instagram-worthy food pictures. 

Conclusion

All in all, we absolutely loved our experience at M'eat US. While they served up some of the best BBQ we've had for a decent fare, they allow BYOB, which is another plus point. 


TIP

Try the Ribs Platter.

'Splendid!' is what I can tell about their mix grill. Two people can easily share the mix grill, unless you are heavy eaters :D you will be getting a juicy pork chop, two mouth watering chicken whole legs, two large sausages (which I'm not sure what it was, but it was YUMMY!) and a mashed potato salad just for Rs. 1,600/-. that's a pretty good deal compared to all the grill places around Colombo. There is a nice vibe to the whole ambiance and it compensates the indulging experience even more. The chef who is manning the grill is super nice and will always have a bright smile on his face every time you see and so is the rest of the staff…. if you are a grill person definitely give it a shot.

The chicken was really really good but I was disappointed with the ribs. Stay away from the desserts and iced coffee also. I'd probably revisit for the chicken. The char is divine!

Fellas who like to have juicy racks of pork definitely need to visit here. I also went there on yesterday night arround 9.30pm. that time all the tables were received and out side also quite busy. We have 7 guys with me and ask for any possibility to arrange a table for us. They arrange a (plastic) table at outside that is also agree by us.
I thought if the operation is busy but they concerned on every customer,but unfortunately we got served as they "earned enough for today". 02 nos of X large pork ribs, 3 nos of garlic bread and one salad was come to our table.the portion size of the salad was very recommend by the guy who take our order, was sufficient for 5 pepole,but we got it when we reach to last rib of the plate. And that is also served in a cup same sized as cereal bowl.
That's ok if they served us the X large rib, what's exactly he showed me before we order, but that was also smaller than what was on the grill.
Any how I'm not telling the place is horrible but if they think end of the day, they "earned enough for today" it will the hammer on the head for the business.
Flavour and the texture was fabulous but the way they served and think was little poor.any way I wish to visit there again and have to have different experience.
Good bless.
