November 17th, 2017. When I heard about Altitude Grill, I was very excited. Then, when we arrived at the 46th floor, I just realized that it was previously Salt Grill. They told me that they wanna try their own concept, and voila, Altitude Grill was born. Got invited to their pre-opening lunch, I was very curious, since they had new chef.
They renovated the place, for sure. It was such a nice place. Still got the exclusive ambiance but more friendly touch. And don’t forget the view. Definitely one of the best places to visit when you want to have lunch or dinner with breathtaking view.
Grilled Watermelon Salad 160k
Feta, Arugula and 25yrs Aged Balsamic
At first, I thought it was a tuna sashimi. They made the texture just like tuna. Turned out it was grilled watermelon. It was crunchy watery cheesy. Yes, they put feta cheese in the middle. And I loved their 25yrs Aged Balsamic. Mild and light. Not too strong, enhanced the flavour of the salad.
Scallop Filled Squid Rings 280k
Crispy Pancetta, Raspberry Bacon Jam with a Parsley Shallot Plush
Pork detected! Yay! Hahahaha. I could see Aline sad face. LOL. I loved this dish. The scallop was fresh and moist at the same time. And the squid was very soft and tender. Super tender! Such a recommended dish. Trust me. It melt in your mouth! Tasted delicious with beautiful presentation. Too bad Aline couldn’t try this one. Poor her. *sad face*
Apple Mango and Prawn Cocktail 160k
When it came to our table, the Chef told us how to eat this one. Mixed it together and enjoyed it. It was totally amazing. Such a simple dish, served in a martini glass, could become an overblown dish. Too bad, it was in a small portion. I prefer they put it in a big bowl hahahaha..
Triple Cooked Wagyu Ox Tongue 180k
Creamed Hazelnut Dukkah
I think I had 3 portions of this wagyu ox tongue. HAHAHAHA. Yes, it was THAT good!!! They served the tongue in a slice. But it was one of the best slice of tongue. Errr.. maybe it’s the best, so far. For me. I don’t know about others, but I believe they will agree with me. It’s super tender. Topnotch! And it’s one of the best appetizers I’ve every tried!
Oven Baked Salted Egg Hollandaise Black Cod 320k
Purple sweet potato and Asparagus
The black cod was tender and soft. But I had a very high expectation for the salted egg hollandaise. It’s too light for us. Yes, for us. Not only for me. I, for sure, couldn’t taste the salted egg. Maybe they were afraid it would be too salty. I hope next time they will make the salted egg hollandaise super tasty.
Bistecca a la Altitudine (min 500 grams) 260k per 100g
Sher Wagyu MBS 8/9 T Bone
Chef Gary sliced the wagyu in front of us. I could see that he did that without any effort at all. He showed us how tender the wagyu. Uhlala! It was very aromatic. I was drooling, literally, at the same time Chef Gary sliced the wagyu LOL. Look at the pink colour. Slurrrrp. Yes, it’s tender and juicy and well-seasoned. And the best part was the fat. I asked them to give me the fat part hahahahahahaha..
Picanha (200 grams) 225k per 100g
Sher Wagyu MBS 8/9 Rump Cap
The Picanha was also good, but still my favourite was the Bistecca. Another pink colour wagyu. OMG! Look at the oily meat. *jumping jumping* There was not much fat in the Picanha. So yeah, back to Bistecca. LOL.
Steak Sampler 1100k
The Steak Sampler consist of 5 options: Wagyu Ox-tongue, Tenderloin, Picanha, Rib Eye and Skirt. Hmmm.. too bad I didn’t have a chance to try them all. Full tummy! I said, it’s really a genius idea to serve this kind of menu. You can try 5 kinds of meat in one big wooden board. For those kinds of meat, I could say it was worth the price.
Whipped Potatoes 90k
Confit Shallots 80k
Truffle Fries 95k
Buttered Spiced corn and Crisp 80k
Buttered Broccoli Gratin 80k
The whipped potatoes and the buttered spiced corn and crisp were my favourites!
Assorted Desserts 150k
Sneak Preview of our Dessert Buffet
What is your best dream? A table full of desserts. LOL! When I saw the long table, I forgot everything else. Hahaha. Those delicious desserts with beautiful presentation. I laughed when they told me that it was a little bit “dangdut.” HAHAHA. Well, it wasn’t “dangdut” at all. Actually, it was very pretty. Pretty and delicious. Perfect combination, right? And you can eat all of the desserts for only 150k. Cakes, tarts, cupcakes, chocolate fountain, mousse, ice creams, you named it.
Congratulations Altitude Grill for the opening. Definitely the hottest steakhouse in town!
