Creating Delicious Variery of Dishes on Mibrasa Charcoal Oven
COLLIN’s Grill for the first time brings different nuances in each dish served to pamper the tongue of Indonesian customers. COLLIN’s Grill uses specialty Binchotan Charcoal on its Mibrasa Charcoal Oven as a medium for cooking a variety of dishes This concept turned out to have the basis of one of the Indonesian foods favored by the Indonesian public, namely satay.
"Each menu is cooked on the Mibrasa charcoal oven. We emphasize a strong sense and want to give a unique touch of charcoal in Indonesia because Indonesians like satay. I think the concept will work well," said COLLIN'S Grill founder Chef Collin Ho to Netralnews, on Monday (05/20/2019).
Chef Collin continued that COLLIN’s Grill also serves steaks from 45-days dry-aged beef to get the maximum texture of meat flavor. To note, 45-days dry aged beef starts with meat that is hung in a sterile chiller with controlled humidity and air temperature. During the process, the meat loses weight because it loses moisture, but makes the taste much more concentrated and intense.
"Producing 45-day dry aged beef Days is difficult, expensive and time consuming. However, it has been considered the best of meats among experienced steak lovers," Chef Collin said.
Unique and Specialty Menus
