For limited time only from 18-25 May 2015, C’s Steak & Seafood Restaurant of Grand Hyatt Jakarta will be presenting a complete set of Argentinian dishes under the supervision of Chef Federico Ferrari from Park Hyatt Buenos Aires.
From starter to finish, the guests will be able to sample modern Argentinian flavors and its strong roots involving the use of good meat and seafood, grilling, native ingredients, and also the dulce de leche!
By all means, let us skip right ahead to the best lineup I had during my visit there. Afterwards, I know you will say, “Let’s give it a try right away!”
The appetizers were intriguing and also familiar at the same time. For instance, the empanadas / the classic beef turn over were something that we all like to snack from time to time in a form of “pastel“, but this one is different, of course. Filled with high quality beef and potato, it was designed in a way for us to fully harness its simple yet fulfilling qualities.
As for the provolone cheese, it was just adorable. The use of almond sauce and preserved tomatoes brought us such sweetness that matched the cheese right away. Even if we’re only nibbling small snacks, I’d be happy to ravish this one until we ran out of it!
The strangest part would be the sweetbreads and lucky for me, I had this one before with Chef Matt Demery. This one has that brainy consistency with the offal-y flavor which may be considered easy only for those with acquired taste. Nevertheless, I had some of it and kinda enjoyed it actually.
This is the part that I really fancy most. With appetizing options ranging from skillfully grilled tenderloin, sirloin, and octopus – all served with chimichurri sauce and roasted garlic cream; this was obviously the best part of the show and it was proven!
I even decided to just fill my plate only with a little carbs such as the mashed potatoes with semi-salted butter and skipping on having too much delicious smoked pumpkin puree just for the sake of the meat.
The octopus was cooked intelligently so that it didn’t have the overly chewy consistency anymore like in sashimi, and the smoky feel as well as the overall taste pacified my senses with such pleasure! The meat was, without doubt, a formidable peer to the octopus as well.
Ah the classic dulce de leche with cake and meringue. On the other plate, the bread pudding. These classic desserts were so tantalizing that I even spare a lot of space for these. Both of them are the must-try from this section, even though I had too much meat before.
