Meat lovers can now head on over to Spectrum at Fairmont Jakarta for their Monday Prime Time

I AM OFTEN at a loss to find good quality, perfectly cooked steak in Jakarta. So it was a huge delight that I was told that Spectrum at Fairmont Jakarta had launched their Monday Prime Time. Finally, somewhere to get my meat on!

Every Monday night, Spectrum lays out a scrumptious array of dishes using only the best USDA Prime Beef.  Center of attraction is the Butcher Station, the table is laid out with all the USDA Prime Beef you would ever want, New York striploin, tenderloin and ribeye.  You just approach the butcher, tell him how much and he will cut your hunk of meat to order and it will be grilled over their charcoal grill to your desired doneness.  Now how’s that for meat on demand.

For those who do not want to wait, they also have a huge USDA PRIME Rib carving. I recommend you come early so you can ask for that much valued center cut!

And what is steak without its sides.  They have a variety of steakhouse-style sides and salads, and a selection of sauces. Truly a meat lover’s delight.


There is a Potato Bar which feature cassava, potato skins and potato wedges all fried to order and a selection of toppings like chili con carne, cheese sauce, sour cream, scallions and others.

Another interesting feature is their Burger Station. Maker your own burger using USDA Prime Beef. The station also has a selection of condiments allowing you to build your own burger. They also have an yummy Oxtail Sloppy Joe which they will cook to order.

A DIY Beef Tartare Station, for those who like their meat raw. Speaking of raw, in true steakhouse fashion, they also have a Seafood Raw Bar, just in case you tire from all the meat.

Their Organic Vegetable Station allows guests to create their own veggie dishes using the freshest vegetables from local organic farmers.

And to polish all that off, their dessert station is waiting with an assortment of cakes, pastries, ice cream, waffles, crepes and many more.

See you at Spectrum next Monday!
