North Jakarta is known for it’s variety of Chinese restaurants and hawker foods. But as the interest of eating out developed, so were the growth of new restaurants in the area. Recently my brother told me about this BBQ place that’s located in Pantai Indah Kapuk, The Smokey Ribs. The restaurant was consisted of two levels, an outdoor and indoor. The interior was nothing short of a typical western restaurant. Bricks wall with wooden panels decorated with picture frames, booth seats and a big flat screen TV playing all sorts of music video. It’s cozy and relaxing, perfect for a family day out.
The first thing that we order was the appetizers:
Mozzarella Cheese Sticks (IDR 45.000): Fried stringy mozzarella cheese breaded with bread crumbs,served with homemade marinara sauce. I love their cheesesticks because of the thin but crunchy coating didn’t impowered the mozzarella.
Smokey Onion Onion Rings (IDR 50.000):Onion rings coated with secret batter with a side of homemade original BBQ mayo sauce. It’s good,but would be better if they put more taste on the coat.
Baked Potato Skins (IDR 38.000): Crispy baked potato skin with cheese and smoked beef.
St.Louis Spare Ribs-Honey (Small 4 bones IDR 105.000, Large 8 bones IDR 195.000): BBQ USDA grade pork ribs. Basted with California Honey sauce,served with coleslaw and a choice of french fries/mashed potatoes. Juicy,great tasting meat and sauce.
St. Louis Spare Ribs-Hot (Small 4 bones IDR 105.000, Large 8 bones IDR 195.000): BBQ USDA grade pork ribs. Basted with Smokey Ribs’ Red Hot sauce, served with coleslaw and a choice of french fries/mashed potatoes. Not much spicyness on the sauce,nonetheless it’s flavorful and delicious.
Chicago Beef Ribs (Small 2 bones IDR 95.000, Large 3 bones IDR 120.000): USDA BBQ grade short beef ribs. Tender, bursting with flavor. Basted with Smokey’s original homemade BBQ sauce, served with coleslaw and a choice of fries/ mashed potatoes.
Top Choice Tenderloin Black Angus 200GRM (IDR 200.000): Very tasty steak. Juicy and tender, with yummy sauce too.
