A good piece of meat can be cooked for various dishes: boil, stew, or fried, but nothing matches a cut of beef more than to grill. Of course, the best method for a big cut of Prime Rib, the famous Kobe beef, the yummy Wagyu, or the European Angus beef is nothing but similar.

Let’s see what the menus are!
Start with pre-meal bread, serve in 3 small pots together with homemade truffle butter and Échiré, imported French butter.
Baby gem lettuce, anchovies, Reggiano shavings, crispy Parma ham, garlic croutons
Starting with the first appetizer, the normal Caesar Salad with extraordinary servings. We have seen how to make them in details for the first time. Starting with the dressing preparation, egg yolk, mustard, tabasco, and olive oil are mixed until it becomes creamy. Then add chopped garlic, caper sauce, anchovy, salt and pepper to create taste, then a little bit of cheese. When they are well-mixed, use fresh baby gem lettuce to mix with the sauce, then add cheese, croutons, and Parma ham.
Caesar salad cooking process
This menu also allows guest to choose the sauce ourselves during cooking. We could taste and adjust it as we like. Using Parma ham instead of fried bacon also adds an aromatic signature to this meal.
Lobster salad with mango salsa
The next plate of salad comes with yellow mangos, which mixed with Cayenne pepper, coriander, shallot, and with some sour from lemon and olive oil for an aroma. Avocado and lobster are served along with the salad. The smell of coriander goes so well with the sweet mango and lobster meat. No wonders why this plate is one of the most popular plate here!
Chaspuzac snails, mashed potato, aromatic butter
Another signature starter from this restaurant: French snails with mash potatoes fried in butter sauce. For the French cuisine lover we believe this is something original, but at Fireplace Grill, the snails are cooked and served in a special way: in a clear ceramic bowl instead of a normal hole bun tray. Eating chewy snails, smooth mash potatoes while smelling aromatic butter, along with garlic slices of bread is just yumm!
Confit duck and fig cigar, chickpea puree, duck glace
The first main dish we had is the medium rare grilled duck, which comes with its signature scent and rich in taste. The sauce “duck glace” is sweet and subtly sour. The meal is served with a chickpea puree with eggplant filling.
Just one grilled this past left me impressed with the taste & texture. I can’t wait to taste the highlight of the night, 2 KG Tomahawk! That will come in the 2nd episode of my “Fireplace Grill & Bar” review. Soon only at Great Gastro.
