Thank to Kim, I am invited to try out some new dishes at Gran Fiesta Restaurant. Gran Fiesta Restaurant may not be a new name for Johor Bahru folks. It is located at Stulang Laut, facing the Tebrau strait. Gran Fiesta is famous for its white interior design. It give diners a simplicity and elegant feel. Thus, many diners like to host their birthday party here. PS: You can host your ROM party here too. It has a European style  veranda facing the Tebrau strait.

Seafood Paella RM48.00

In my opinion, paella is a western style of cooking rice with butter and cheese. Seafood paella need to have assorted range of seafood on top of the rice. This dish has many seafood on it. To add on, vegetables are added for a well balanced meal.

Seafood Platter RM99.00

Most of my friends enjoy seafood. Seafood platter will be a good choice to share among friend. The  grilled salmon with spicy mustard is my favorite. cheesy mussels  can be divided evenly among friends. The fresh squid (sotong) is full of tomato puree taste.

Meat Platter RM88.00

Meat Platter RM88.00

As for me, I have certain seafood allergy. Meat platter suit my taste better. I can see that Gran Fiesta restaurant emphases on well balanced meal. There is a small salad with the meat. When you are tired of chewing the meat, take a taco. Taco has this crispy texture. It will brighten your mouth before it get bored.

Red Wine Herb Chicken RM66.00

Red wine contains antioxidants, such as flavonoids or a substance called resveratrol, have heart-healthy benefits (McCarthy, 2015) . However, access alcohol in red wine may not be good for our liver. Thus, Gran Fiesta will used vodka and fire to burn off the access alcohol. Blue fire indicates the alcohol element is evaporating.

Here you are left with great nutrient red wine herb chicken. The fragrance  red wine and wolf-berry  smell is remained in the tender and juicy chicken meat. That is why, this dish is immediately eaten up (Sapu) by us.
