Jackrabbit Cuisine & Libations

Reintroduce your taste buds to the new concept and the new Executive Chef of Jackrabbit Jakarta

Theres a saying which goes: Two is a crowd and three is a party. This couldnt get any better for Jackrabbits new concept of dishes, which was only launched to public a few days ago. This time round, the new Executive Chef Nizar Achmad attempts to indulge your senses with three signature Trio dishes.

For starters, tease your taste buds with the Jackrabbit Salad Trio Combination:
Clockwise from left: Japanese Garden Salad, Grilled Artichoke Salad & Tuna Tataki Salad
  •  Tuna Tataki Salad
Highlight of this salad is the partially cooked tuna chunk wrapped in crunchy sesame seeds. Normally, the dressing is in liquid and poured over the salad. However, the shoyu jelly cubes is such an interesting way to dress the salad up without overpowering the other ingredients.
  • Grilled Artichoke Salad
There arent many restaurants in Jakarta that serve dishes containing artichokes. So, heres a good news for you who miss this green, because now you can satiate your cravings with Jackrabbits refreshing version of grilled artichokes.
  • Japanese Garden Salad
Sushi and salad, whoever thought that they could actually make a great pair?

Now, lets proceed to the Trio Main Course, shall we?
4 Hours Slow-cooked Lamb Shank
Boneless BBQ Beef Ribs
Lightly Cured Swedish Salmon
  •  4 Hours Slow Cooked Lamb Shank
The long cooking hours tenderized the lamb shanks which rest on top of a flatbread goat-cheese sandwich.
  • Boneless BBQ Beef Ribs
This dish is not for the faint-hearted ones. The sweet and sour beef ribs come served with soft mashed potato thats mixed with pumpkin to create a light texture. Personally, this is my favourite of the three main course dishes. While others complained that sour beef was a failed experiment, somehow it won my taste buds away. Well, "suum cuique", t each his/her own (taste buds)...
  • Lightly Cured Swedish Salmon
The salmon is marinated in advance and by the time you order it, the sauce would have soaked thoroughly, to give you a rich, grilled salmon.

And there is always room for dessert, right? Especially for the Trio Dessert which consists of Raspberry Panna Cotta, Jackrabbit Homemade chocolate Truffles (available in Whisky, Chilli & original flavours) and Apple Pie. The apple pie is accompanied by such an unusual homemade gelato, made from tropical spices like cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc, that you will either love it or hate it. Which side do you think you would be?
