You’ve heard of hot off the grill, but what about steaks and chops that are cooked up and served hot off the brick oven?
Yep, you read that right. The place is called Brickfire, a casual dining steakhouse that offers well-marinated prime meats that are roasted in a 400-degree heated oven. This cooking process makes sure that the flavors are intact compared to cooking in an open flame.
Brickfire has been around since 2012 but we only got the chance to try dining there recently. The branch we chose is at The Annex, SM City North EDSA.
The restaurant’s interior is well-lighted and simple. The charcoal black chairs and beige tables are neatly aligned with enough space for diners to pass. The walls are bare showing the restaurant’s clean brick walls. Balancing the overall atmosphere is the black walls and lights at the cashier’s area.
In terms of service, Brickfire’s staff are attentive and friendly. You can see them looking around the tables and making eye contact with the diners. It was really easy to call them. Now for the food, we ordered the Cowgirl Annie with rice and sides.
We had some second thoughts with what flavor we should choose – Honey Mustard or Wasabi. In the end, we settled with the Cowgirl Annie in Original and in Wasabi flavor plus the Grilled Salmon.
Indeed, the steak is indeed juicy and flavorful. We truly enjoyed the original flavor. The wasabi, on the other hand, was quite surprising. We never thought of adding wasabi in steak but it works. Just don’t add too much though if you can’t take the strong taste of wasabi. Though Brickfire is know for their steaks, the Grilled Salmon should not be ignored. It’s tender, juicy and very tasty.
If you’re looking for delicious and affordable steak, the Brickfire should be on your list. Besides the Cowgirl Annie, the Bully Burger which is 100% beef is another dish they recommend and it’s affordable, too!
