Holycow, the most popular steak chain restaurant in Jakarta


If you want to be powerful, I recommend eating meat.

Long ago, there was such research.

  • A researcher divided the sales team into two and conducted an experiment.
  • Group A did nothing and Group B had a regular barbecue.
  • As a result, the sales score of Group B increased significantly.

I don't know if it's true, but if you want strength, it's better to eat beef steak.

However, unfortunately, in Indonesia, it is difficult to find good food.

I think there are various problems such as logistics, breeding environment, import restrictions, etc. However, even if you pay a fair amount of money at a local steak shop, you can not meet a satisfying taste.

On the other hand, there are foreign-owned restaurants like Outback, but we can not eat everyday unless we are celebrities, because of expensive price.

Among them, what appeared to be the savior was “Holycow”.

Steak Fast Food Restaurant, HolyCow

The name of the shop is Holicow.

A steak fast food restaurant serving Australian WAGYU with 100,000 to 150,000 IDR.

It is a shop that belongs to the same group as the lobbie lobster you introduced in the past.

Holy Cow started history with this guy in 2010.

He was originally working at a television station, and when he ate a delicious steak one day he thought, "How can I offer this delicious steak at a reasonable price ...?" then he came up with a specialized business idea.

I came to Indonesia in 2014, but by that time it was already treated as a "super-successful popular store", and it seems that its momentum has not declined.

From 100,000 to 150,000 IDR volume zones in one plate, it is a price that is not cheap at all if it is a local person, but there are always some people from family members to couples and women's meetings needs.

Recently, they have developed business conditions for parties that travel by store every truck.

I occasionally visited the Senopati shop.

Next door is the lobby lobster of the sister store.

In front of the store there is a wild grill like this, where they just keep grilling the meat on the grill plate.

The shop interior is simple.


Just give it a steak! Looks at their simple menu!

the menu is simple.

Just the meat.

There are many kinds of menu from KOBE Beef to HOKUBEE, ANGUS, WAGYU SELECION, AUSTRALIAN BEEF, but the taste does not change so much.

HOKUBEE's meat was soft if you mentioned only one (KOBE is too expensive to eat).

Conversely speaking, it can be said that even cheap ones are quite delicious.

How to order is also simple.

Choose meat, 2 side dishes and 1 source.

You can choose the side dishes as you like.

The recommended source is mushroom source.

Even if you don't use the sauce, you can taste it with soy sauce-based (possibly ketchup asin) sauce and herbs with a hint of seasoning.

The finish looks like this.

This is Buddy's Special of 97,000 IDR.

It is the cheapest meat, but the meat is softer than I thought, and I finished eating right away.

As you may have noticed by looking at the menu, there is no "rice" in this shop.

Indonesians love rice, but when they eat steak they seem to be fine even if they don't have rice.

In addition to having no rice, there is also no beer as it is for local use.

It is interesting that there are more women than men.

There are also girls in Japan who go alone to barbecue. Women's meat lovers will not change even across borders.

Finally I write about the price.

One dish 100,000 to 150,000 IDR, so it is not a cheap shop for locals.

However, there are few other stores that offer steaks that can be eaten well and firmly at this price.

Even in the mall, there are many steak restaurants that are not delicious.

In that sense, it will be a "cost-effective shop" that can be used positively for locals as well as Japanese.

Although the title "NO. 1" is described in the title, it is definitely the best in this price range.

When you want to squeeze meat, Holy Cow is recommended.

The popularity of Holy cow continues.

There are currently two in Jakarta: “Holycow! Steakhouse by Chef Afit” and “Steak Hotel by Holycow!”, But “Steak Hotel by Holycow!” Seems to be different shops with similar names.

If you're going for the first time, it's safe to choose “Holycow! Steakhouse by Chef Afit”!

You can see more at their official web.
