Griglia Open Fire Italian Kitchen launches new menu infused with flavours of an Italian summer

Drawing inspiration from grigliata, an Italian summer tradition of grilling over an open flame, Griglia Open Fire Italian Kitchen takes pride in presenting communal-style dishes on charming hand-crafted Mediterranean plates.

The restaurant opened in September 2021 at Craig Road, with a menu specially curated by Executive Chef Andrea De Paolo.

The updated menu introduces its latest addition: 8 finger-food snacks crafted to showcase the fundamental flavours of Italian cuisine, infused with an innovative twist.

The Marinated Olives (S$4), steeped in Martini vermouth and infused with aromatic Italian herbs, along with a touch of fiery Calabrese chilli, offer a delightful fusion of flavours. The unique combination of Smoked Eel (S$8) on a toasted, buttery brioche, is enhanced by a fresh, sharp kick from horseradish and the salty, tangy pop of trout roe.

griglia - bone marrow and pasta

The new menu also features unconventional elements like Bone Marrow (S$26), presented in its bone slab with a wonderfully crisp parmesan crust on top, and accompanied by a sliced radish and salsa verde crostini.

A beloved choice among guests is Griglia’s Homemade Pappardelle pasta (S$26); cloaked in a fragrant red sauce infused with Chianti, enriched with tender braised pork jowl, and adorned with crispy guanciale for a delightful texture. It delivered a savoury, aromatic symphony that lingered on the palate. A true culinary masterpiece!

griglia - steak

As the evening gained momentum, we were presented with a plethora of meat options from its Open Fire Grill section. The spotlight shines on an impressive 30 Days Dry Aged Porterhouse (Fiorentina) (S$158 for 2 persons): a Florentine style steak dry-aged for 30 days and tenderly cooked over the open fire grill.

This was simply divine. Juicy and flavourful, it’s a masterpiece, grilled to perfection for an unrivalled meaty indulgence.

New additions feature an enticing Suckling Pig Porchetta (S$98 for 2 persons), a beloved Italian classic with crackling skin, and a Spiced Coastal Spring Lamb Rack (S$88 for 2 persons), seasoned with a spice blend comprising 10 different spices, making it an ideal sharing plate for 2.

griglia -desserts

A warm Italian summer evening concludes perfectly with desserts shared around the table. For those who adore coffee (like me), the Cappuccinomisu (S$12) (my personal favourite of the evening) offers a thoughtfully crafted fusion of traditional tiramisu and the cherished Italian cappuccino; velvety buffalo mascarpone is infused with the richness of port wine and crowned with a frothy cappuccino foam. WOW!

Alternatively, you can choose a more invigorating finale with Capri in a cake (S$14), a naturally gluten-free, tender Italian confection enriched with an intense lemon curd, derived from a luscious limoncello and freshly squeezed Amalfi lemon juice. It’s elegantly paired with a cold, velvety vanilla gelato that rests daintily on the side; each bite brings a zesty delight.

Make your way to Griglia Open Fire Italian Kitchen for these delectable delights that will surely tantalise your taste buds.
