Today we thought to introduce you to Applebee’s Grill & Bar Jakarta, a great family restaurant that has come all the way from The Biggest Apple of All, New York!
Applebee’s Grill & Bar Jakarta is a casual American dining restaurant that focuses on good, healthy food and friendly service. Founded nearly thirty years ago now, Applebee’s Grill & Bar is now the largest casual-dining chain in the world. Of course that’s no surprise, with its comfortable atmosphere, fun and family-friendly atmosphere and its signature bar and grill menu.
They serve everything from soups and salads, to fresh seafood, perfectly grilled premium steaks, pasta, desserts, you name it, they have it. There is also a fully stocked bar in each Applebee’s restaurant ready to mix you the perfect cocktail (or mocktail) for every occasion.
Starting off with the drinks, we have the classic Iced Teas in Three Flavours. Strawberry, mango, kiwi and raspberry. They start from IDR 22.000 and are a great way to stay refreshed when you’re still choosing from the menu. But don’t stop there!
Try the decadent Oreo Milkshakes that have become a clear favourite of all Applebee’s Grill & Bar Jakarta guests. You’re never too old for an Oreo Milkshake and adults and children alike will love this.
Start the meal with this East meets West delicacy. The perfect bite size accompaniment to your cold drinks.
These Crispy Wonton Tacos are stuffed full with zesty grilled chicken and topped with a crunchy Asian slaw. Appetizers start at IDR 49.000 for half-sizes (just in case you don’t want to get full before the big meal).
The Quesadilla Burger is one of Applebee’s Grill & Bar Jakarta’s best sellers, and just from this picture we’re sure you can see why. It’s a juicy burger with the Applebee’s signature Mexi-Ranch sauce, pico de gallo (also called salsa fresca) a fresh, uncooked salad made from chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, fresh serranos, salt, and key lime juice.
Of course, you can’t forget the beef bacon and the Pepper-Jack & Cheddar Quesadilla (replacing the boring bun). Only IDR 149.000 for this huge burger.
If you can’t make up your mind on what to order, fear not, the Shrimp ‘n’ Parmesan Sirloin is here to save the day. It’s the Applebee’s Grill & Bar Jakarta version of surf and cheesy turf. Fresh grilled shrimp and rich Italian cheeses all combine to present the perfect accompaniments to the huge 270g sirloin steak. The Shrimp ‘n’ Parmesan Sirloin starts from IDR 259.000
The Double Barrel Whiskey Sirloin is made up of two, not one, but TWO sirloin steaks totalling 270g. Grilled to perfection (we recommend Medium) and served with garlic mashed potatoes, red peppers, mushrooms and onions all caramelised in bourbon whiskey. It’s a steal at IDR 249.000 and will keep you full the whole day
To finish off, they have a stunning array of desserts, but The Butter Pecan Blondie (a white chocolate brownie) is a great one to try out if you’ve never had one before. It also makes a very pretty Instagram picture. It’s jam packed with nuts, walnuts, and served sizzling at your table where it’s then drizzled with maple sauce and topped with a huge scoop of ice cream.
