Animale Restaurant, Setibudi, South Jakarta

Bahasa l English

Jakarta is currently impacted by a very serious Covid-19 virus outbreak. More than hundreds of positive victims and even dozens of victims died. This condition makes Jakarta citizens are carrying out all works and activities at home and only go out if there's any necessary or urgent. This time I will only share information about one of the elegant restaurants which also only operates about this year. Hopefully, this virus waves able to pass quickly and we can all live normally as soon as possible.

Animale Restaurant is a new place with an elegant and luxurious concept. It offers a variety of Mediterranean dishes but with a modern American ambiance. Once entering this restaurant, it looks really enchanting interior decoration. The hallway has an artistic ceiling, as well as a dark color selection that resembling the elegant style.

In addition, there is an outdoor space with quite a lot of seating capacity, then a view that is no less beautiful from a certain height is good enough to enhance the fun atmosphere in this restaurant. On this first visit, I tasted quite a lot of menus, now I will give the following details:

1. Wagyu & Foie Gras (Rp 175K)
This one can be an interesting choice as a starter. Kobe beef carpaccio slices of meat and you can imagine how good the quality. Served with pine nuts, fragrant truffle sauce, savory saba, arugula, and parmesan to enrich the taste. Each slice of meat is truly delicious to increase appetite.

2. Bivalvia (Rp 135K)
This is one of my favorite as a seafood fan. The combinations of black mussels, white clam, and bay scallops are really addictive. Cooked with parmesan muhammara sauce and basil oil so as to provide a balanced aroma and taste. The quality of the ingredients are cooked well so it doesn't fishy.

3. Malloredus (Rp 175K)
This one is quite trending here in some European or Italian restaurants. This malloredus pasta is cooked with sage brown butter, truffle burro fuso which is indeed an Italian cooking style then added with crusted bone marrow which is served directly in front of the guests so it is warm, fresh and has a perfect melting.

4. Beef Cheek (Rp 225K)
This dish tastes quite familiar to Asians, like meat stews but has a different aroma to the tagine, caramelized fuji apples, and served with almonds & golden raisin couscous. The texture of the meat is very tender, the taste is perfectly absorbed, as well as the couscous also has the right flavor.

5. Short Ribs Tomahawk (Rp 755K) Pork Tomahawk (Rp 395K)
Dishes that are clearly appetizing. Pieces of meat with premium quality ingredients certainly serve meat with a tender, juicy texture. In addition to seasoning that is just right, served with side dishes so that it is balanced. Both of these dishes are must choices when you visit here, for the serving also suitable for sharing. As an experienced restaurant, of course, they always prioritize good ingredient processing.

The dinner experience at Animale is truly memorable, not because of invitation or collaboration. Well, here I am as a food reviewer always trying to give my personal experience when tasting food. It also needs to be said, that Animale itself is managed by a team of experts and long experienced in running high-end restaurant businesses in Jakarta. Just another thing is the outdoor area feels quite warm indeed depends on the weather too I assume.

Then you can also book through Chope app, go to restaurants, enjoy food while collecting points of Chope dollar, of course, it is a good idea, right? Don't forget to check out various promotions with many choices of dining in Jakarta.
