ALTITUDE GRILL JAKARTA

November 30, 2017 Cindy Lulaby


Altitude Grill is hereee!! Yeah! This is the new Salt n Grill version and it's also in the same building; The Plaza 46th floor. The placing is exactly the same just with different table arrangement and decor. Plus the bull painting below here used to be something else as well!



You can clearly see that this is a fine dining restaurant. The type where I'll only dine here on a special occasion!




ALTITUDE GRILL BREAD


GRILLED WATERMELON SALAD IDR 160K
It's amazing how Chef Gary Eng can turn the watermelon's texture into a tuna-like texture! They said it's by freezing and unfreezing the watermelon for 3 times and using a type of alcohol. The middle of the watermelon is feta cheese, which not many might like for the smell but I find this actually okay!




APPLE MANGO AND PRAWN COCKTAIL IDR 160K
The prawn is already boiled and you have to mix it with the apple mango salad cause that is where the flavor lies!



SCALLOP FILLED SQUID RINGS IDR 280K
This is a non-halal menu! The scallop is rolled with squid and topped with small bits of crispy pancetta and topped again with raspberry bacon jam and shallot. You have to eat this all in one go to get the best taste of everything!





TRIPLE COOKED WAGYU OX TONGUE IDR 180K
One word; SUPERB! So tender and has that grilled aroma that makes your mouth water. It's topped with hazelnut and the sauce is also peanut. Just perfection!





OVEN BAKED SALTED EGG HOLLANDAISE BLACK COD
The texture of the cod is super good! Too bad the salted egg is not strong enough and it was because they don't use real salted egg but an imported salted egg sauce, so don't expect the salted egg to be like the usual ones you've had. Below everything is a purple sweet potato and asparagus. The whole taste is just like a plain fish to me tho!


BISTECCA ALA ALTITUDINE (MIN. 500GR) IDR 260K/100GR
Okay, so this one is really huge and is probably enough for 4-5 people and the price above doesn't include the side dish like mashed potato, corn, truffle fries, shallot confit. You'll need to add another IDR 80K-95K for the side dish. Fyi, this is a Sher Wagyu MBS 8/9 T Bone, though I don't know what that means..lol!


There's nothing to comment on except on how wonderfully good it is! For you who has been asking which is better this or AB Steak, I can only say that both are different types. AB Steak is more of a Korean steak with no fat, while this is Western like Outback, Angus House, Bistecca and the meat you'll find here has quite the fat for that juiciness!


These are the sides;

BUTTERED SPICED CORN AND CRISP IDR 80K


WHIPPED POTATOES IDR 90K


CONFIT SHALLOTS IDR 80K


PICANHA (200GR) IDR 225K/100GR
This one's a Sher Wagyu MBS 8/9 Rump Cap. I prefer this one personally rather than the one before, maybe cause this is not that thick, so the flavor is much more absorbed. Both are good tho and the portion of this is probably just for 1-2 people.



This one here is called Beef Sampler if I remember correctly and it costs IDR 1,1MIO. Yes, it's because this is a complete set of steak; there's ribeye, beef tongue, etc!




You'll also find a dessert bar here! There's a buffet for it too for IDR 150K and that includes this ice cream; there's baileys, black sesame, chocolate, matcha, and strawberry!


Ta-dah!!! Welcome to dessert wonderland! Most of them are tarts and hotel type of desserts, let's go!


Feeling like Alice yet? xD








Well that's pretty much it. You can even go for the dessert buffet only without having to order the meat. This dessert bar is an all you can eat only tho!
