Flavor Updates: Asian Wok Delights (C’s Steak & Seafood Restaurant, Grand Hyatt Jakarta)

C's Steak & Seafood Restaurant - Interior

One does not simply say that C’s only specializes itself with great steak or fresh seafood. Once upon a time, I had myself a beautiful steamed coral trout with soy sauce and julienned Asian vegetables. Since then I reckon the hidden force C’s has to offer with its Oriental cuisines and this time, C’s boasts the same quality with its colorful array of the dishes served hot and fresh from the woks.

Some say that native chefs cook their native dishes best, but I beg you to differ for this case as Grand Hyatt Jakarta’s Executive Sous Chef Christer Foldnes who hailed from as far as Norway has been doing a fantastic job alongside his Indonesian kitchen team for the past few years. Not only that they serve outstanding raw and grilled seafood, but now they’re doing some wonders with Asian stuffs.

Pretty little appetizers!

For only until September 29th, C’s has designed several dishes such as:
• Organic chili noodles with minced beef and spicy garlic-oyster sauce.
• Kway teow with seafood and black bean sauce
• Stir-fried asparagus with shredded beef and oyster sauce
• Stir-fried cauliflower with shrimps, ginger, and garlic
• Frog legs – Szechuan style
• Spicy tofu with Chinese cabbage, vegetables, and chilis
• Fried rice “C’s”, lamb, chilli, condiments

Wok dishes all-in-one!

Among these beauties, I found that the best among all was the spicy tofu with Chinese cabbage. While usually I find most tofu-related dishes as boring, C’s has surprisingly put an immense effort to make it flavorful and daring. Those traits are also granted for the organic chili noodles with minced beef which was served like your usual ifumie dish but with bold colors and fresh ingredients.

Alternatively, two brave contenders for those two came from the frog legs, which was both sweet and a bit spicy while still they beat chicken as always. Last but the least, the super expensive C’s fried rice which came in with secret ingredients and imported lamb is probably one adventure that you should not miss. From what I sensed, the fried rice uses both Middle Eastern influence and our usual kampung-style fried rice condiments, colored with pickles and kerupuk. Delish!
