Chef: I Wayan Widiarta
If you’ve jollied down Eat Street, you may have noticed a charming contemporary building with stadium style seating to people watch, and the geometric brass exterior that resembles honey combs. In this edition of Chef’s Recommendation, we checked out the buzz around one of Oberoi’s famed and favourite, Char Char Bar and Grill.
Having been escorted to their stunning al fresco dining area, which features a convertible style roof (how cool is that!) and given a delectably extensive menu that leaves you spoilt for choice. Head Chef Mr. I Wayan Widiarta highly recommends his current best-selling dish, the Lamb Medallion, which is priced at IDR 155,000 ++.
At first impression, we’ve got to say that the presentation was stunning; featuring grilled Australian Lamb medallion cuts, cherry tomatoes, asparagus and accompanied by black olive tapenade, potato puree, a parmesan crisp and red wine sauce.
All the flavours truly complimented one another, from the tenderness and juiciness of the lamb to the play with olive tapenade, red wine sauce and fresh elements of the asparagus and cherry tomatoes. All in all, we had an incredible dinner and evening. We left thoroughly impressed with their food and beverage quality, value and genuine attentive service.
