After the successful firing up of Stoked in Medan Damansara, owner Yin How decided to reconceptualize their existing Vintry in 24 Persiaran Ampang, and turn it yet into another hot flame for the Ampang residents and beyond.....Flint is the latest outlet to open on this eclectic row of understated yet rather upmarket yet homely restaurants in that affluent hood of Ampang Hilir.
Flint, no relation to the cartoon character of the same half surname, (Flintsones la, which is actually the method of lighting a flame those days when I was young) also has the same signature oven its sister restaurant has, the Big Bertha, that steely Brienne of Tarth character in Game of Thrones comes to mind, big ass with a big heart, and an additional drum with the same concept as the Bertha, called the Drumbecue... every macho man's dream I'm sure of a backyard bbq... Except it's probably the Lamborghini of barbeques.
I love places that serve fresh piping hot bread, with butter that melts gloriously ..although had we known the amount of food that was coming, it might have been wise to abstain.
The prawn tartine, ....a bit too many things happening on a piece of bread, and fellow IG follower commented that they had it before and it was "dry on dry"... Well, honestly, ain't my thing, but it you like mayo-ey stuff, then you might like this. RM30
Lamb Shoulder Stew, Mediterranean inspired dish, with haricot beans. Very hearty, def a meal by itself.
Oven smoked roasted beef, apparently the cut changes based on what is available, and today's happened to be wagyu brisket, which I love. Excellent, melt in the mouth, but they really can do away with the mayo. RM
Well, the lucky residents of that hood now have a lovely new place to try out.
