Last Christmas, I joined several foodie friends for lunch at Salt Grill. Salt Grill by Luke Mangan is arguably one of the most prestigious dining places in Jakarta. It serves Australian contemporary cuisine and owned by a celebrity chef-restaurateur Luke Mangan. Salt Grill is located at Altitude complex that also housed two other restaurants; Gaia (Italian) and Enmaru (Japanese) on level 46 of The Plaza office building.


With such a great location, prices would be understandably high too. Fortunately, according to my friend, Salt Grill is offering lunch set menus that are priced at 150K net for 2 course menu and 180K net for 3 course menu. So since there were 8 of us that day, we basically ordered every available set menu. And since our motto is sharing, I got to taste some of my friends’ dishes. So without further ado, these were what we tried that day.


Sashimi of salmon, ginger, eschalot and goats feta

Tempura zucchini, corn puree, smoked feta, capsicum vierge

Duck sliders, pickled papaya, hoy sin sauce

Chargrilled mackerel, pickled onion and fennel on toast

Sydney crab omelette, enoki mushroom and herb salad, miso mustard broth “signature dish”


Barramundi, prawns, capers in burnt butter, roast tomato, cauliflower puree

Minute steak, garlic mushrooms, truffle mash, baby spinach, red wine sauce

Chicken parmigiana, mix leaf salad, French fries


Creme caramel, honeycomb, saltanas in red wine syrup

Guava mille feuille, creme patissier, guava consomme

Coconut and kaffir lime panna cotta, mango espuma, passionfruit and pineapple

Passionfruit cheesecake with raspberry sorbet

I like most of the dishes we tried that day. I especially like the sashimi of salmon, ginger, eschalot and goats feta, barramundi, prawns, capers in burnt butter, roast tomato, cauliflower puree and passionfruit cheesecake with raspberry sorbet. The minute steak was also good, but the portion is slightly too large for me. We also ordered Sydney crab omelette, enoki mushroom and herb salad, miso mustard broth “signature dish” 140K that is not on the lunch menu. It was a hit for us. All in all, just like my friend Dino said “Good food with Good Friends is equal Good Life
