Jakarta has become a magnet for celebrity chef-owned eateries. The newest kid on the block is conceptualized by the Korean-born Akira Back, whose delicious dishes made his name instantly popular amongst celebrities. His restaurants such as Yellowtail and Kumi are both located in Las Vegas, USA, with the flagship Akira Back Restaurant located in India. Each restaurant features the signature flourish of Akira Back that promises a unique twist in every dish.
With a seating capacity of 122 and five VIP rooms, the Akira Back Restaurant in Jakarta offers an extended array of dining options that combine authentic Japanese cuisine and exquisite Korean taste perfected with the signature touch of Chef Akira – secret recipes that indulge everyone’s palate.
These innovative menus are a twist of unusual ingredients that can only be found in certain places. One of his most-loved signature dishes is the Tuna Pizza, thinly sliced tuna sashimi with truffle oil garnishing a crispy pizza crust and topped with micro shiso leaves. Another favorite dishe is the AB Taco, a bite-sized taco filled with kalbi marinated wagyu and spicy tomato ponzu. Another must-try dish, from the ‘signature rolls’ menu, is called Pop Rocks: a sushi roll filled with spicy crab, asparagus and, yes, lemon Pop Rocks candy. And last but not least, the all-time-favorite main course: the 48 Hour-Braised Wagyu Short Ribs.
Akira Back also provides a lounge serving selected favorites such as the Lychee Lush Lemongrass, a mix of homemade lemongrass gin, lychee liqueur, passion syrup, orange juice and lemongrass. For wine lovers, Akira also offers wide range of wine selections and also a wine pairing dinner.
This lifestyle restaurant and lounge concept offers a warm interior design presenting an ocean-like ambiance that is familiar with Japanese food, anchored by the modern touch of wood accents.
