We tasted the ‘Charcoal Grilled’ Ahi Tuna for the first time within Johor Bahru area, I like the sesame seeds very much! The fresh tuna melted in our mouth with nice aroma, it made a Must try dish to me! And please don’t forget to finish the nice mashed potatoes and the juicy cherry tomatoes.

Before we can finish the Ahi Tuna, the third dish served…The Kurobuta Prime Rack on-the-bone (300g)(another Signature dish of the restaurant)

Kurobuta Pork is the most highly prized pork in Japan and comes from the ancient breed of pig known as Black Berkshire. The meat from the pure oriental strains of Black Berkshire, found in Japan, is regarded as the highest quality pork in the world.

Some knowledges from friend : Conventional farm-raised pigs
tend to lack the incredibly tasty fat that heritage breeds have
maintained, and which keeps their meat juicy, tender and, yes,
expensive. But if you’re a true fan of pork, heritage is worth every
succulent bite.

It was my first time trying the highest quality pork in Johor Bahru, it served with the special sauce and it was nicely grilled on the outside and remains succulent inside. This piece of pork gave the different taste from the ordinary pork that available locally. Kind of like the taste…It was a nice experience for us but it can be more perfect by provide more moist of the meat.

The forth dish was Milk Fed Veal Rack (300g)Signature dish of The Brazzo

Veal is the meat of young cattle (calves), as opposed to beef from older cattle, Milk Fed Veal was took from calves that are raised on a milk formula supplement. The meat colour is ivory or creamy pink, with a firm, fine, and velvety appearance. They are usually slaughtered when they reach 18–20 weeks of age (450-500 lb). “Milk-fed” veal calves consume a diet consisting of milk replacer, formulated with mostly milk-based proteins and added vitamins and minerals.

Our Milk Fed Veal Rack was served with the medium rare doneness. As you can see the pinkish on the meat, it easily melted in our mouth and the ‘charcoal grilled’ aroma filled up every corner in our mouth! The veal was tender and succulent, this 300g veal took us at least an hour to enjoy it! With the small little cut of Blue Cheese, made this savory Perfect!
It’s a Must try dish for beef lover, Delicious!

The fifth dish was – French Rack Of Lamb (Signature dish of The Brazzo)

A rack of lamb or carré d’agneau (though this may also refer to other cuts) is a cut of lamb cut perpendicularly to the spine, and including 16 ribs or chops.

Rack of lamb is often “frenched”, that is, the rib bones are exposed by cutting off the fat and meat covering them. Typically, three inches of bone beyond the main muscle (the rib eye or Longissimus dorsi) are left on the rack, with the top two inches exposed.
Well, we were not so particular as other food lover to measure the 2″ 3″ of it. Haha!

The Rack of Lamb was well grilled on the outside and it had the medium doneness inside, which gave the reddish pink, browned, and crusty. The seasoning complemented the lamb but not dominate it. We can’t stop ourselves after the first bite! No conversation between us during that moment unitl the racks finished…

We were satisfied with all the Signatures dish which served on our table!
