We went to the recently opened ‘Q Smoke House Factory’ for dinner last week, no its not a smoking room, but their specialty is “wood fire barbeque”. The restaurant was decorated in wood, open ceiling with a dimly light that creating a warm & cozy place. Their concept is providing the authentic barbeque experience, the ribs was marinated and cook for minimum 8 hours in custom built barbeque pit imported from USA, using a mix of fruit and hardwood (pake kayu nangka bukan? kerja sama dgn departemen kehutanan ya?). And since It was the soft opening, they offer 30% pre opening discount for all the menu listed.
So here’s what we ordered : for appetizer they have 3 choices : fried shrooms (breaded deep fried mushrooms served with ranch dipping sauce) 15K, Q buffalo wings (deep fried crispy wing marinated in spicy chili sauce) 17.5K and spanish fries (crispy baby potatoes, garlic mayo, spicy tomato sauce) 15K. We ordered fried shrooms & spanish fries (love both of it especially the fried shrooms).
The recommended entree salad was “asian salad” (greens with asian sesame dressing, crispy noodle) 15K, you can asked for additional smoked chicken for 5K only. For main course there are 3 choices of steak (Q rib eye hawaiian steak 49K, Q cajun strip loin steak 49K and Q cajun chicken steak 28K) 2 choices of pasta (spaghetti bolognaisse 25K, spaghetti with cream sauce, smoked chicken, fresh tomato, spinach & green pea 25K).
And their specialties : “barbeque beef ribs” (meaty falling-of-the-bone tender beef ribs smoked for 8 hours in barbeque pit) for only 34K (regular 2 ribs) and 49K (jumbo 3 ribs), smoked spiced chicken 28K. All the specialties are served with coleslaw, grilled bread, sliced onion and if you dare to eat jalapenos, you can request for it 🙂 In my oppinion the ribs are incredibly delicious, so juicy and tender with not to sweet sauce, its hard to find such quality of ribs with this price in Jakarta, plus it came in avery generous portion and a stylish appearance *very recommended*, I still longing for that ribs till now. oh, they also got a selection of sandwich do try their “Q burger” (Q’s reinterpretation of the old time favorites with piled high smoked beef brisket, sauteed onion & BBQ sauce) 25K.
For drinks they offer : hot & cold coffee (espresso, latte, flavored latte, capuccino, americano), tea (hot : chamomile, earl grey, mint tea, green tea, ginger tea, vanilla tea, cold : iced lemon tea, peach tea, lemongrass tea) and fruity & bubbly selection. We like their “refreshing strawberry” 15K and “minty pineapple” 12.5K, they also served italian soda (non alcohol) with various syrup that was worth trying. 🙂
