Alibaba Steak & Iga Bakar Jakarta Reviews
Great steaks at a cheap prices! Aug 03, 2011
The Alibaba is for certain one of the best places I have been to in Jakarta for steak! And the price can’t be beat, either. The Alibaba is located close to the city, on the same street where you will find many backpacker hostels. I stayed at the Ibis hotel across the street in the past and I don’t know how I missed it before. And for the ladies…you can also shop in here for dresses and stuff. Rini even bought a dress here.
There isn’t anything too fancy on the inside but it is very spacious, with a large area in the back for more seating, and the shopping area in the front. But it’s the food I would rave about. The steaks are about 6USD for your choice of New Zealand or 8USD for Australian beef. The tenderloin steaks are the better choice over the sirloin, also. Sandy ordered the sirloin and it had some fat on it; the tenderloin had no fat. And for 6 bucks for a steak, what can you expect? I was thinking “not much”, but I was dead wrong. The steak was very good and cooked the way I wanted it. It was served on a hot plate with vegetables and potatoes. Asri had the grilled chicken and it was good, too.
Don’t miss this place if you are in the area! I will certainly make another visit here for more steak.
