With the rise in popularity of fusion restaurants and social media platforms such as Instagram, more and more diners are becoming open to new, unique flavour fusions. Combining different flavours together is nothing short of a creative challenge – one which our skilled chefs at Charles Grech Bistro are happy to take on. Among our vast and delicious menu, you can find a few options which marry unexpected flavours. In today’s blog, we take a look at a few.
Start off your meal by teasing your palate with interesting flavour combinations…
Pan-fried Scallops with Apple & Ginger Purée
What’s not to like about scallops? They’re rich, fleshy, flavourful and contain a variety of nutrients that promote cardiovascular health. Our decadent scallops recipe at our restaurant in Sliema goes down a treat with our apple and ginger purée.
Pistachio – Crusted Pecorino Cheese
This hard and crumbly cheese is an Italian favourite, made even more delightful when crusted with pistachio, with its distinctive flavour and texture. Wash it down with a glass of Italian red wine or a light beer.
Fresh Fish Ceviche with Avocado Mash
Chunks of raw fish marinated in citrus juice, sliced onions, chili peppers and seasoning, add some mashed avocado – with its somewhat buttery, somewhat nutty taste – and you’ve got yourself a winner.
Refresh your soul with a fun-loving salad
Salads have gained the unfair reputation of being boring, and our chefs at Charles Grech Bistro aim to prove this wrong with our tasty Quail & Mango Salad.
On the Side Bench
Opt for Jack Daniel’s Flamed Mushrooms as the perfect side to a meat dish, of which we have quite a few!
