IO, Jakarta – For some people, maybe a steak dish has become one of the popular foods. This type of processed meat dishes have the character of the taste of a soft, tasty, usually served with a little spicy condiment typically spiced. In contrast to one restaurant serving special steak dishes at Numbers Kuningan, South Jakarta. Using quality beef, serving steak in this restaurant still feels good although not given a lot of spice.
This is the basic principle held by Ruth Fertel since opening Ruth’s Chris Steak House in 1965 in New Orleans. Bringing classic recipes from New Orleans, Ruth’s Chris Steak House opened the first outlet in Indonesia, precisely at Ground Floor Somerset Grand Citra, Kuningan. This opening also marks the tenth store of Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Asia after being present in Japan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Taiwan.
“On February 13, 2016, the restaurant was officially opened to the public, we want to share the experience of enjoying the best quality steak with heritage and taste from New Orleans,” said John Crawford, Ruth’s Chris Steak House Franchise Vice President. He revealed, in the United States, Ruth’s Chris Steak House is famous for sizzling delicious steak dishes (sizzling).
Enjoying authentic and exquisite Ruth’s Chris steak dishes requires a warm and cozy atmosphere. Presenting a luxurious interior design brings guests who come to have a different experience and seem to be taken back in time despite being inseparable from a contemporary twist on the details.
“Each room has its own function, this became our goal to bring the atmosphere of a different space within a restaurant,” explained the designer from Metaphor.
The reception area, the bar, the main dining area, some private spaces, and the space for the large group are the necessities that are then used as a reference to the scenario of an experience in a steakhouse. Experience not only gained from enjoying the taste, but also the visual, touch, and aroma that brings memories.
A touch of Art deco into the design approach that deliberately invites guests to enjoy the food while taken to a particular era. Metaphor designs, art deco motifs and details with a contemporary touch to keep the overall interior in order whilst still representing the present. All of its elements reflect the elegant impression that is supported by the choice of warm material and the familiar spatial scale.
After talking about the concept of dining room Ruth’s Chris Steak House, now is the time to discuss the delicious steak at this restaurant. The pleasure of Ruth’s processed steak is not derived from the spices used, but from the use of US Beef Prime with proper cooking techniques. US Beef Prime is a top quality beef version of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). This meat feels tender juicy and has excellent white fat.
To cultivate it, Ruth roasted the steak in a 982 degree Celsius oven. The steak is then served in a 260 degree Celsius dish to keep the quality maintained until it is served. Maturity level of the steak can be adjusted taste, whether to rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, or well.
When I tried Petite Filet 230 gram with medium rare maturity level, I felt how tender and juicy this Ruth made steak was. Just need a butter and a little sprinkling of black pepper to perfect the delicacy of the steak. Of the few steak restaurants I’ve visited, Ruth’s Chris Steak House does provide a quite different taste from other steak restaurants.
In addition to Petite Filet, there is also a selection of filet, New York Strip, Ribeye, and T-Bone. All the meats served are USDA certified. In the middle of his explanation to the Independent Observer, Crawford also informed that New Orleans is also known for fresh seafood. This is what makes Ruth’s Chris Steak House also provides shrimp and crab as a menu mainstay. Both are presented in the opening menu such as Barbecued Shrimp and Sizzlin ‘Blue Crab Cakes.
Barbecued Shrimp is a pan shrimp with white wine, butter, garlic, and various spices. The shrimp tasted sweet naturally with a touch of savory butter. While Sizzlin’s Blue Crab Cakes are in the form of thick crab meat with a sprinkling of Romano cheese. In the variant of soup and salad, Ruth’s Chop Salad is a favorite option. This salad is made from iceberg lettuce slices, baby spinach, radicchio, red onion, mushrooms, olives, beef bacon, eggs, bleu cheese, and crispy onions. Salad can be enjoyed with lemon juice that fresh acid.
If you want to end your meal at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, there is also a wide range of desserts such as cheesecakes and creme brulee that you can enjoy. This classic restaurant is open daily, serving lunch from 12:00 to 15:00 and dinner from 17.30 to 23.00 pm. (aldo)
