Aged + Butchered

Steak in Jakarta

In October 2020, MDS Group introduced Aged + Butchered Steakhouse in Jakarta as an avant-garde fusion of an American steakhouse and an Asian Yakiniku restaurant. It was born from Chef Andri Dionysius’ vision to create a contemporary dining place that celebrates and highlights the meticulously prepared selection of “Dry-Aged” and “Wet-Aged” meats. Today, we are seeing the restaurant’s swift rise as one of the most reliable places for meat enthusiasts of the capital. Located at the Mezzanine Level of MD Place in Kuningan, Aged + Butchered marries industrial and rustic decor with a chic and modern atmosphere.

Providing variety amongst the steakhouse experiences available in Jakarta, they have their on-site dry-ageing room that guarantees the quality of the meat, and the culinary team takes their meat quality control seriously, is patient with their ageing process and even go as far as making their own house-made salts. The chefs also grill the visitors’ order right by their table, giving them not only a dining experience but also a spectacle. 

By blending the best of American steakhouse traditions with the vibrant touch of an Asian yakiniku joint, Aged + Butchered’s menu is nothing short of enticing. Try their signature dishes from Hokkaido Scallop with celeriac puree & chips, hon-shimeji, and ponzu beurreblanc or their Steak Tartare with roasted marrow, wagyu flat iron, spicy yukke, and puffed tendons. The menu stars are, of course, their dry-aged and wet-aged cuts selection. All the meat collections in Aged+Butchered are meticulously selected, serving only those with the best and highest quality. 

With their immaculate attention to detail and the quality of their meat, Aged + Butchered has redefined the steakhouse experience, cementing its place as one of the favourites in Jakarta, offering a fusion of West and Eastern cuisine, and intertwining fun with sophistication.

RIVA Grill Bar & Terrace

Steakhouse Jakarta

Guarding its throne as a renowned culinary steakhouse haven in Jakarta, RIVA Grill Bar & Terrace presents ‘Chef’s Journey’, a culinary innovation to introduce new dishes for guests to explore.

One of the favourites is the ‘Rib Eye Wagyu Tajima’ served with artisan Balinese salt, a hearty selection that certainly pairs well with the fresh salad dish. Their must-try is of course ‘The Tomahawk’, a top-of-the-line cut of rib beef, whose flavours ooze out of the meat’s marbled texture and intramuscular fat. Seasoned with the homemade ‘Riva’s Secret Herbs and Spices’ and Himalayan pink salt and weighs in at a slightly heavier two kilograms. The Tomahawk is the holy grail steak for all meat lovers.

Casita by El Asador

steaks in jakarta at casita: meat platter

With 11 years of success under its belt, El Asador is proud to showcase Casita by El Asador, a casual Argentinian-inspired restaurant. While El Asador has a heavy focus on showcasing authentic South American cuisine, Casita takes more liberties with its menu which includes Indonesia-sourced main courses inspired by South American dishes. Not only one of the best places to sink your teeth into a steak in Jakarta, it’s also a great place to try something new.

The must-order items are all featured in Casita’s Parillas section, the 600-gram Meat Platter (or Mix Platter for those craving chorizo and/or chicken), the 200-gram Churasco, and a standalone Chorizo dish. Accompanied by a dressing of your choice – these essential sauces add that extra “oomph” to your meal: traditional/spicy/mayo chimichurri, salsa, tartar, barbeque, mushroom, and black pepper are all options for your meal.

For the Argentinian fusion menu, the restaurant highlights Indonesia’s favourite foods using Argentinian-style grilled meats, such as Grilled Soto Ayam, Steak Fried Rice, and Steak Fried Noodle. Of course, guests still have plenty of options for flavourful food selections, ranging from appetizers, soups & salads, pasta and desserts, plus beverages ranging from cocktails and mocktails to juices and smoothies, and a good selection of beer and wine. Our favourite is their 1 litre Sangria and Clerico cocktails – perfect as something to share, or a drink to keep to yourself after a long day.
