Inspired by Bali’s flamboyant kecak (fire dance), Fire at the beachfront W hotel showcases dry-aged, flame-cooked meats in five-star surroundings.
Dining here is a decadent affair and might begin with seared scallops, oysters two ways, or charred local octopus. But it’s the grain and grass-fed steaks, carefully dry-aged for 20 days by the chefs, that steal the show.
Charred seasonal veg dishes make a delicious side, and there’s a stellar wine list to wash it all down. Fire’s mixologists are pretty handy with a blowtorch too, crafting molecular-style cocktails like the “Hanoman Obong”.
