The Chub’s Grill

Cool. Honest. Unpretentious. Bornean. Grill

Chub's Grill is a modern and swanky restaurant that serves delicious western food on a huge platter. A steak house it is not. Hence one will not find special sauces here. That means BBQ sauce, black pepper mint sauce or mushroom sauce are a no go at this place. To get that special taste, the meats are well marinated with special imported ingredients and spices, then these meats are nicely grilled until the juices inside the meat started to flow. Next the meats are served with a few side dishes which include buttered corn, garlic toast, and freshest garden salad. On top of these clients will get to make a choice, whether they prefer French fry or canju red bean rice to go with the rest of the food. First timers at Chub's Grill are often, if not always, surprised by the big basket platter that comes will all the food, which eventually brings a big smile on their face.
