STEAK OUT. Carnivores in town should not miss out on sampling slices of heavenly beef at Ruth’s Chris Steak House (Somerset Grand Citra, ground floor, Jl. Prof. Dr. Satrio Kav. 1, Jakarta; +62 21 522 1178; ruthchris.com)
This posh New Orleans steakhouse is staking a claim in Indonesia, after branching out to Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
All of the steaks are heated to an internal temperature of 260-degree Celsius in a trademarked oven that was co-developed by founder Ruth Fertel 50 years ago. As a result, every bite brings out the delicious meat juices.
Being a New Orleans-based eatery, the seafood selection is pretty exceptional to boot. From Shrimp Remoulade to Crabtini, a meal at Ruth’s is a mouth-watering trip to the largest city in Louisiana without actually flying there!
