Restaurant Review: Potato Head Garage

MEAT AND GREED. As one garage that shelters neither fancy cars nor motorbikes but a lavish 1920s-inspired hall, Potato Head Garage (Jl. Jend. Sudirman Kav. 52-53, Jakarta; +62 21 5797 3330; is a place like no other.


Upon entering the so-called garage, you will be greeted by an aisle leading to a classy interpretation of a classic steakhouse. Inside the tony stadium, antique Victorian chandeliers hang low from the soaring ceiling. The set is meant to showcase performances of fashion, music and art alongside the truest highlight – one of the best steaks in town.

Try the blue swimmer crab cake with homemade green curry and chili oil as the appetizer. Out of the extensive main courses, there are equally tasty PTT burger; Wagyubeef presented with homemade sauce; and Black Angus strip loin. Save a little room for the thick Valrhona chocolate cake for a beautiful ending.
