In case you haven’t heard of it, there’s an Argentine restaurant in Jakarta that serves you homemade cuisine with genuine dining experience of the nation that will only leave you craving for more.
As the first and the only restaurant in Jakarta that serves authentic Argentine cuisine, La Posta – Taste of Argentina has been pleasing a lot of people. Located right in the heart of Jakarta, they offer North Argentine food cooked by an experienced chef that hails from the family of F&B moguls in Northern Argentina. That being said, customers will enjoy nothing but the bona fide taste of the country’s dishes.
You can find almost any homemade North Argentine food you want at La Posta. Aside from steak and wine–the standard menu set of Argentine cuisine–the restaurant also offers a variety of other palatable dishes.
There’s empanada to start with; a traditional pasty with assorted fillings including chicken and vegetable, minced beef and lemon, hand-cut beef and vegetable, mixed mild cheese and onion, as well as spinach and ricotta cheese. The savory taste of the empanada goes well with chimichurri sauce and homemade tomato-chili mixed sauce.
Pasta lovers can also pamper themselves with the delectable spinach ravioli. Called Pansotti de Espinacas, the spinach and ricotta-filled ravioli is the perfect dish not only for pasta enthusiasts, but for those who want to balance their diet with some veggies as well.
Sure—the iconic steak cannot be missed. We would recommend the salt-crusted beef ribs known as Costillas a la Sal. The medium-cooked steak is very juicy, while the sprinkled salt on top subtly enhances the taste. Accompanied by a glass of wine, the duo will bring you to cloud nine.
For the desserts, Rogel is certainly a must. It is a cake made of crispy and delicate pastry layers, sandwiched between glossy Argentine caramels and topped with torched meringue. If you consider yourself as a sweet tooth, then you definitely have to try this one.
La Posta opens from Monday to Saturday with two opening hours, 11am to 3pm for lunch and 6pm to 11pm for dinner. Booking and reservation can be done through www.laposta.id.
