    Imagine a steak served just the way you like it: The meat tender, moist, and flavorful, but with a smoky finish that teases the senses. This is what cooking with the Mibrasa oven can do, a new method and equipment from Spain brought by George Town’s Super Steak so diners can enjoy eating their meat more.

    This new restaurant, recently opened by Mr. George Pua, the same man behind KPub BBQ, Ogawa traditional Japanese restaurant, Oppa Chicken, Rico’s Lechon and Thai BBQ. It is set to make dining out a more immersive and appealing experience with its revival of a tried-and-tested cooking technique, but updated to fit the contemporary diner’s taste and lifestyle.

    Unlike the use of electricity or gas, the Mibrasa oven uses charcoal to cook food, taming the fire to simultaneously grill and roast meat, seafood, and even vegetables and bring out their rich flavors. Yet unlike the lengthy cooking time that using charcoal typically entails, Mibrasa ovens are quick and efficient, distributing heat evenly and keeping it consistent.
    Super Steak Chef Jin Ho Yoo is excited for people to savor their dishes cooked through this method. “Cooking with the Mibrasa oven is the next generation for cooks like us,” he describes. With the oven’s capabilities, steaks are cooked precisely, the flavor and juiciness retained in the meat, even when the steak is made to “rest” before it gets served. “That’s what I call ‘next-level cooking.’ Surely, you’ve never tasted dishes cooked this way before, like a grilled roast steak with a smoky finish.”

    Chef Jin adds, “I glaze our steaks with brown butter, with the aromas of garlic and thyme.” Diners are then given a hot stone along with their medium rare steaks to customize how they prefer their meat to be done.

    Super Steak guests will get to see the magic of the Mibrasa method, with the restaurant set up in a way that will allow chefs to show off how they cook each dish. “That’s something special to what we do, and we love showing off to patrons our skills, passion, and desire to give them great hospitality.”

    George Town Super Steak is located at the 3rd level One Bonifacio High Street, 5th Avenue BGC.
