MARTY'S SMOKEHOUSE BANDUNG10.48.00
One of the good new findings from my latest Bandung trip has got to be this newly opened steakhouse (as this post is written: 2 months old) located also not too far from Sejiwa. Marty's Smokehouse is located in Vio Hotel Cimanuk but I am not 100% percent sure if the restaurant is part of the hotel's F&B or the owner actually owns both property, there are two entrances to the restaurant, one's via the hotel entrance and then turn right, or you can directly go from outside where they have this tiny door directly to their semi-outdoor seating.
Space wise, Marty's Smokehouse was not crazy spacious and had this semi-outdoor feel to it, A quick glance at their restaurant especially the huge customized smoke grill and you'll understand that they're actually a Texas-inspired smokehouse and of course you can expect to find various Western grilled delicacy here such as steaks, grilled proteins (beef, poultry) to pastas. It was a Saturday evening and the crowd was packing the restaurant, basically 80% of the overall seats was occupied that evening.
The smoke machine, the BBQ here's grilled and smoked for approximately 12 hours (or known as low & slow cooking method) with the purpose to have the maximum result, spot-on marination and that tender-juicy meat! It might cost you awhile but it might worth the wait!
Sauces to pair the BBQ with! They have Caramel Glaze, Peri-Peri Hot Sauce and Original BBQ, both the Caramel Glaze and Original BBQ were a little more sweet & watery compared to the thicker Peri-Peri but if you're looking for that extra smokey flavor then go for BBQ, but the Indonesian in me wanted to have a kick of spice to my BBQ and steaks so I mostly paired them with the Peri-Peri sauce, it was thick, a tad creamy, not overly spicy with a hint of tangy.
root beer like drink, defo a good match to BBQ!
Strawberry Milkshake - IDR 22k
Refreshing creamy blended drink without being overly sweet while still pretty fruity and fun with extra bubble pop!
Look at 'em juicy brisket!
Chicken can, I just wish the chicken could've been a little more tender but no problem about the seasoning tho.
I didn't come here expecting to have the best steak but their Tenderloin was indeed a tender one, when it comes to steaks I am not hard to impress, just give me a very simple one where the quality of the meat is good, perfectly cooked with that pink center, sauceless and if you can execute that well I am yours at that moment. The waiter didn't ask us about how we wanted our steak to be cooked and somehow we totally forgot about it but eventually it came as a medium (which I totally appreciate), the meat was very tender and so easy to cut, and if you pay attention to the coating, you can see that juice on the meat, defo the menu that I recommend, especially if you fancy steaks!
