Highlighting a varied range of cross-cultural cuisines and culinary traditions from Argentina and Uruguay, El Asador has launched a revamped version of the meat signatures.

Tucked away on Kemang street, South Jakarta, El Asador is one of Jakarta’s top dining destinations for South American cuisine. El Asador has a menu that could please any palette, and its way more than just listing items. Following a décor revamp and menu that focuses on easy-going Argentine-Uruguay style eating, El Asador impresses the palettes of guests at a preview recently.

Having full-on industrial chic elegant touch, the woody elements in this restaurant create a warm, inviting feel. Exposed brickwork is mixed with wooden ceiling element, providing some pretty tenacious decoration.

The new menu reveals a new, more mature flavour profile ensuring the food and beverage offering enhances the experience of dining and entertainment. Juicy and tender steaks sizzle away on the open-fire grill.

Starting from Vacío (flank steak), this hunger-killing beef cut is cooked properly, making the exterior fat gets crisp and the inside delightfully tender, flavourful and very juicy. If you haven’t tried this one, give it a go on your next visit!


Ready for a tasty new take on chicken meal? Try Pamplonas. Chicken is a go-to protein choice to dine in and out. Having set with a selection of premium-quality seasonal produce like meat and vegetables, this cuisine is made of juicy chicken breast fillets rolled with cheese, green olives, capsicum in a shape of a tightly bound large sausage tenderised with lamb fat and grilled to a crisp. 

With these new meat signatures, all is pointless without the fresh Chimichurri sauce. This traditional chimichurri recipe has a very smooth olive oil-base and is a robust condiment to complement any grilled meat.

Enjoying the dishes already? Now go on to a signature beverage served in a version of hot chocolate Submarino. A piece of dark submarine chocolate added to a glass makes a glass of warm, frothed milk and stirred in. Another must try is Spicy Star, a magic blend of pineapple, star fruit and chili syrup. The addition of chili creates a level of heat, giving it a dimension on its taste.

El Asador is open for reservation daily. The restaurant is here to give you the full South-American culinary experience from the best of Argentinian and Uruguayan dishes to an incredible range of more than 50 exquisite wine options from around the world, including Chile, the US and Australia.
