Extraordinary Culinary Offerings @ Grill 582



My first visit to Grill 582 and I was excited. There was something about the entrance and the signage. "Grill" as in cooking using a grill or was it "grill" as in the fencing used. Either way while my thoughts argued with each other I knew I was in for a surprise and truly it was a surprise that I could have a good set meal with wine pairing in Brickfields for a decent price. Indeed an extraordinary culinary offering.

Love the lighting of the place. Its cozy yet comfy enough for us to take our food pics. I know, I know...bad table manners...but heck its fun to capture the moments of our good food! And the best about Grill 582, I get to choose my own steak knife. Too many to choose...and the hubster gives a simple answer "Come back and eat again so you can choose the other knife or knives you had in mind". Smart man!
Table for 2
Love the different handles for the knives!

The Extraordinary Culinary Offerings @ Grill 582 runs all the way till end of June 2014. This special menu is crafted based on the best selling items at Grill 582 and a few are Sous Chef Siti Arini Darsom's latest creation that will be making their way into the ala carte menu soon. Take your pick of the special 4-course dinner menu is priced at RM250++ per person with wine pairing or RM180++ per person without wine.

We opted for wine pairing for the 4-course meal. Between the red and white, I was honestly more smitten with the Waterfalls Road "The Eddy" Sauvignon Blanc. A lovely zesty finish to it with melon and peach flavours. It went well even with our choice of steaks. Undoubtedly it would have gone brilliantly with the trout too! 

There was 2 appetizers to choose from and since the hubster was with me, we could have one of each and share it. Yeah yeah...table manners in question...but we are foodies...so pardon us! 
Scottish Smoked Salmon Tartare, Shallot, Creme Fraiche and Frisee Salad was a hit with the hubster who loved the rich salmon fats (good fats!) with a hint of smokiness. Somehow having a smoked salmon tartare coupled with the ingredients gave him a new opinion of smoked salmon.

The plump 
and perfectly pan seared Scallop, Mango and Chilli Salsa was my obvious choice. This is definitely something I will return to Grill 582 to for and perhaps have it as a main instead of appetizer!Mango and Chilli Salsa.

Always good to have a soup in a meal. A choice of 2 soups - Wild Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil and French Onion Soup with Cheese Croutons.  Both were good but if you prefer something rich and lightly peppered then onion soup is absolutely perfect (especially on a rainy evening).
The Wild Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil is prepared from scratch. It has a lovely bite to it and yes..the beauty of truffle oil!. Ask for some freshly baked dinner rolls to clean up the plate. Not one drop of this soup should be wasted!
The French Onion Soup is comforting. Its not the usual clear broth ones but yet it has a nice clean touch to it. Am absolutely in love with the 2 thick chunky goodness of the grated cheese croutons that gives the onion soup more body and flavour. 

3 mains to choose from. We both wanted the steak and didn't fancy sharing our the steak with each other which I regretted when I saw the lamb come out. Dang!!! So much for not sharing!
Grilled Black Angus Sirloin served with Baked Potatoes and Sour Cream. Definitely a very filling main course with a nice balance of colours with carb and protein! 
My kind of juicy steak! Both the hubster and I had our orders perfectly the way we wanted it to be even though I was busy snapping away! Brilliant job to the Chef Siti and her team!!!
Herb-crusted Australian Lamb Rack with Ratatouille. Now you know why I regretted now ordering this? A lovely crust to go with the juicy lamb and nice healthy balance from the tangy ratatouille.
The Tasmanian Ocean Trout served with Saute’ed Spinach and Butter Sauce. Can't fault a healthy dish and its quite impossible to over cook a rich fish like the Tasmanian ocean trout. Could view that the others certainly had a nice crusty skin and flaky flesh for their fish!

I am glad that I didn't have to make a choice for desserts. It was a pretty platter of 3 desserts - Cheesecake Bonbon, Toffee Creme Brulee and Chilled Chocolate Chiboust. My eprsonal favourite was the toffee creme brulee with a litght touch of salt! Yes...salt that gives it a nice balance of taste. Brilliant job again Chef Siti!

A 4-course dinner menu is priced at RM250++ per person with wine pairing or RM180++ per person without wine. An affordable deal I must say!
