Five Juiciest Steakhouses in Jakarta (Hang Out Jakarta, May 2012)

Steak! Who doesn’t love it? Steak adalah esensi paling murni dari kenikmatan menyantap daging. You can make any kind of dishes from meat but nothing can beat the simplicity of enjoying it as in steak! Make it medium-rare, medium-well or even well-done from any juicy parts of the cow, semuanya pasti masih asyik untuk disantap.

So without further due, note these joints and check ‘em all out!

1.       HOLYCOW STEAK

Easily one of the most famous steakhouses in Jakarta. Memulai usahanya dengan sederhana di Radio Dalam, namun berkat racikan steak-nya yang sedap dan popularitasnya kini Holycow kini telah memiliki cabang hingga di Singapura. Menu favoritnya tentu Buddy’s Combo yang tidak hanya lezat tapi juga affordable for your date. And the rest? All those ‘wagyulicious’ stuffs!

2.       MIRANDA (D/H TAN GOEI)

Miranda may not really be a steakhouse but it’s a ‘bestik’ legend in Jakarta. Restoran yang sudah berdekade-dekade bertahan ini tetap memertahankan suasana jadul yang kental dengan iringan organ solonya dan restoran berinterior gaya film-film yang biasa kita tonton dari dekade 1980an. Menunya berkisar antara bestik sapi, ayam, udang, hingga beef schnitzel yang menggunakan saus rahasia warisan turun-temurun yang khas dan gurih!

3.       Q SMOKEHOUSE

Cukup jarang untuk pemain lokal bermain di arena smoked meat and grills at the same time. Meskipun pemain lama, Q Smokehouse adalah your one-stop spot yang paling cocok untuk menikmati smoked and grilled beef brisket yang lembut, lumer, dan gurih dengan imbasan nikmat pedas dari cabe jalapeño. Jangan lupa juga untuk mencoba Mexican parade di Q Smokehouse dengan trio grills of beef, chicken and shrimps bersama sour cream, guacamole, dan salsa sebagai isian fajitas kamu. Holy smoky!

4.       SINOU STEAK

We vouch for Sinou Steak in one of our past editions dan tidak ada alasan untuk mengecualikannya juga di sini. Affordable, juicy, and no fuss. Get your short ribs, rump steak or bolar blade steak done, pilih sidedishes yang seru, dan jangan lupa tambah Sinou sauce yang legendaris untuk steak kamu. Seperti apa rasanya? You gotta find it out by yourself.

Jl. Senopati Raya no. 35 // 021 – 521 3011

5.       SUPER STEAK

Sebelum go public ke Living World keberadaan Super Steak benar-benar seperti mitos yang diceritakan mouth-to-mouth saja. Selain menggunakan daging Black Angus yang prima, Super Steak juga berinovasi dengan menciptakan saus-saus baru seperti butter & garlic, lemon herbs, beer, dan lain-lain. That does intriguing, right?

  1. People can’t stop raving about Holycow, but according to one very influential reviewer In Kaskus (he has tasted nearly all the steak places in Jakarta!) Holycow is overloaded with MSG. I didn’t remember about that one, but their sauces were bad. Taste and texture wise, the creamy mushroom sauce is like a really really bad canned creamy mushroom soup.

      1. Nostalgic like Warkop movies. Their standard’s just dwindling and at times too relying on the sauce, which is classic actually. Last time there, slow service like hell. Prolly cause the waiters have been working there for many decades and they’re not afraid of getting fired for lousy service.

      2. Nah, nah. The Warkop comparison is a little unfair. Warkop was actually funny. Still is! (Especially if you compare it with Tukul.)

      3. Harharhar! It’s just that the old interior reminds me of their movies. Warkop’s still the best, they might be a bit shabby in the end but still beats the crap out of nowadays jayus bin crispy comedies.

    1. Several advantages they got so far:
      1. Open for sahur
      2. Free wagyu for birthday
      3. Buddy’s combo for value meal

      The rest is just people making too much fuss about it like you said. 🙂

      1. Holycow steak is not bad. It’s better without the sauce. But these days, I just cook my own steak and I can make better fries and mashed potatoes too!

  2. As for super steak, the owner tried to get their place featured on Jakarta Globe, only to have it backfire hilariously when the article was also published online where readers can comment freely.

    By the way, is hang out jakarta rebranded time out jakarta?

    1. Just found out about Super Steak and holy smokes! 25 pages of comments! Of course, you’re one of those. Haha..
      Actually my experience back then was not bad. It’s just the place that made me a bit uncomfy. You know, humidity and mosquitoes. Service was slow but the owners were always there to tackle any shout outs. I consider the steak as an adventure. I have no objection so far.

      HOJ from TOJ. Yup but it’s a long story. The publisher’s no longer extend the license so they’re doing an alternate version in Bahasa with the name HOJ. After series of turbulent times, finally now HOJ is fully sold to MPG (Nylon, Living Etc, etc). I stopped contributing also.

      1. Somewhere on the internet, someone posted that Time Out had to close when the entire staff (journalists, designers, etc) left because the boss was often tardy in paying their monthly salary. Don’t know whether that’s true or not, I just miss Time Out for their reviews which are mostly good honest and sometimes rather harsh (like yours)! Seems like Hang Out lacks that.

      2. Classic issue of the publisher once told by an ex-editor there personally to me, so I carefully managed that during my tenure with both TOJ and HOJ which actually still tardy in the end. X_X

        Thanks for the harsh thing, tried to bring it honestly even though may not be that flawless. HOJ lacks of that because for me doing it in Indonesian feels just different. Prolly because English is a more articulate language.

  3. “Prolly because English is a more articulate language.”
    Hard to say, considering the English word equivalent of ‘sungkan’ doesn’t exist, which, by the way, explains why Indonesians tend to be less harsh than Englishmen.
