What is grilling new at Grilled Chilliz
Grilled Chilliz launching some new dishes in the menu
Grilled Chilliz a pretty known name as one of the very
affordable eateries of DHA, often time thronged by students, lunchtime office
goers and families. I have already blogged Grilled Chilliz
in detail earlier this year.
This weekend they are launching a few new dishes in their
menu and a range of exciting cooling mock tales presenting to patrons. I was
invited to shoot some of these dishes and taste them. As I arrived at a no rush time of the restaurant, noticed that the restaurant is going
through maintenance work and some remodeling, hope it improves the ambiance.
Tahir Waheed the restaurant owner, a food lover and cook
himself was talking passionately about every food and drink that appeared. There was the new starter and a couple
of chicken, fish and meat entrée that the team has created. Tahir said that his
team have been working on several dishes and presenting as chef’s special for
the past six weeks, some of them got special attention and appreciation of
customers which will be now be added as regular in their new menu.
We bit on the
‘Buffalo Bites’ which were balls of herbed chicken bits fried in a
batter, was crispy, loved that texture and freshness. But there is a very strong tangy taste of hot sauce, to me
it appeared more like harsh vinegar. This flavor needs to change definitely!!
Black pepper Fish
In the main courses, the Black Pepper Fish was the winner
with me right away. This is a generous portion of panguses fillet that is pan seared,
topped with a white creamy sauce that has coarsely chopped pepper and a few
other herbs that gave it an overall subtle palatable flavor. This was served with a
side of herbed rice and sautéed fresh vegetable, made it a complete meal that
is flavorful and satisfying, I would sure go back for this one again.
appeared Hawaiian Pineapple Steak, it is a big chunk of sirloin
steak, basted well since the flavor came pretty well, char grilled very skillfully to medium rare just the way I like. However, the meat was pounded for tenderization which is not what
good steaks should go through, generally a marbled cut sirloin steak does
not need pounding or tenderization. Overall, this steak grilled with the big
slice of pineapple and the sauce made of melted cheddar cheese and sautéed
mushroom did create a great tasting dish as these flavors blended pretty well.
This steak can be ordered in beef and chicken both. I polished off my plate for
Grilled Chilliz is great for everyday dining and not
expensive at all, the quality and quantity is good as well.
