It’s been a long week, and we’ve already passed the 1st week of October. In case you are not aware of it yet, October is also the month for Malaysia International Gourmet Festival (MIGF).
Without further ado, let’s proceed to our preview of Grill 582’s MIGF 2013 Fine Dining menu.
As always, a quick view of the restaurant’s ambiance just as in our other preview session articles. Grill 582 is quite a dimly lit restaurant, great for a quiet and romantic evening dinner session.
The menu at Grill 582 is as below, masterfully prepared by Chef Arini.
Starting off with the starter (no pun intended) – Foie Gras Mousse, “Avruga Caviar”, Smoked Olive Oil, a simple creamy dish to get our taste buds warmed up for what’s to come.
The meal was followed by a soup – Seafood Bouillabaisse with Freshwater Crayfish, Coconut Cream and Lemongrass. While the crayfish seem to be the highlight of the presentation, I find the beauty of this dish is actually the sea bass (under the crayfish) and the gravy. A seafood soup if I may say so.
With that, we had a break with the Palate Cleanser – Lime Granitas, Seawater “Air”.
The course then proceeded with 2 main dishes, first one up is the Air Flown Dover Sole, Plantain Crisp, Mustard Sabayon. I love how the chef make the dover sole meat into a swissroll type wrape, then topped off with the mustard sabayon. A lovely mix I must say, the taste of mustard and fresh fish.
The second main course was the Sous Vide of Australian Lamb Loin, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes on the Vine, Russet Potatoes and Beetroot, Au Jus – without a doubt, this is the star of the menu.
2 tender pieces of lamb, cooked for 48 hours at 55 degrees Celsius, resulting in a beautifully marinated cut of lamb, tender to the bite while oozing with exemplary taste of what lamb should be.
And as if wowing us with the superb lamb wasn’t enough, the dessert served was almost as impressive – Chilled Chocolate Chilli Chiboust
You read that right, it’s a chunk of chocolate the size a lemon and it’s spicy! Can you imagine the rich chocolate taste with a touch of spice? We can’t, I don’t even know how to describe it. I’ll just use the word ‘awesomeness’
The spicy chocolate suprise was followed by Petit Fours that accompanied it at the end, 4 beautifully made chocolate pieces served on a black platter.
The Fine Dining menu is certainly worthy of consideration, priced at RM298++ per person with wine, RM198++ per person without wine.
