AB Steak Lands in Jakarta

AB Steak is the latest brainchild by Chef Akira Back – a revolutionary modern Korean steakhouse incorporating American steakhouse style with Korean flair.

Akira stays true to his take on cultural merging, mixing the flavors and tastes of his Korean origins along with a variety of other cuisines in an exotic fashion.

Akira has been very successful with his ‘Akira Back’ restaurants, expanding from New Delhi, Jakarta, Singapore and opening soon in Dubai, Toronto and Hanoi. His fine dining restaurant in Seoul, Korea –‘DOSA’ – opened in 2016 and has also been receiving rave reviews.

The innovative steakhouse concept has been developed by Akira over quite some time and Jakarta was chosen to be the first city to open AB Steak. The restaurant’s doors opened in April with a commitment to deliver high-quality service, comfort, style and a memorable experience.

The restaurant’s interior design exudes warmth and flair with modern Asian aesthetics mixed with technology. Artwork by Akira’s mother spans the ceiling and the walls of the VIP rooms. A custom-designed artificial fireplace gives character to the new hot spot for #GrillsGoneWild, situated on the Mezzanine Level of MD Place, right in the heart of Jakarta, in a highly anticipated addition to Jakarta’s F&B scene.

If it is not enough for Akira to bring smoky charcoal grilled steak to your table, AB Steak ages the house-aged premium meat in its very own meat chamber. The restaurant pays attention to every single detail in order to grill the best steak at your table. From the range of 45-day- house-aged meat to premium cuts, special Japanese beef, charcoal grill with apple wood chips, special salts (truffle, himalayan, garlic, yuja and kimchi) and Korean flair from the five different kinds of sauces (sesame oil with sea salt and black pepper, ssamjang, bulgogi, soy and grated wasabi, and chimichurri).

With space to accommodate 72 guests, a few private dining rooms that sit between six and 12 people, AB Steak by Chef Akira Back is ready to elevate Jakarta’s culinary scene and presents the best steakhouse in town.
