I hereby declare Akira Back as the BEST RESTAURANT IN JAKARTA at this moment!!
A while ago friends of mine already told us about how good and special the food from Akira Back and also declared it as the best restaurant and after trying it by ourselves, we couldn’t agree more.
Being a food blogger, me and Mr. Jajan always being asked about our opinion or recommendation about the best restaurant or cafe and we were always having trouble to answer it, but right now after dining at Akira Back, we can easily tell and recommend them to go to Akira Back.
I’m gonna share with you our dining experience so you will know the reason why Akira Back is the best restaurant in Jakarta. Let’s start the foodp*rn!!
Akira Back is located in MD Place Building, penthouse level (12th floor). Once you stepped in, you can see a warm ambiance with dark wooden furniture and dimmed lights. Bar area on the left side and restaurant area on the right side, the restaurant is pretty spacious with several VIP rooms. Akira Back Restaurant offers Japanese cuisine with a twist specially created by Chef Akira himself.
Taking picture during night at Akira Back can be quite challenging with its minimum light but luckily there’s a long marble bar facing their kitchen with a great and bright lighting, so no no dark blurry noisy photo for you all 🙂 fiuhhh..
Heiwa Tea and Soursop Sorbet IDR 135k
Akira Back has enormous amount of drink selection from alcohol to non alcohol drink for you to try. This Heiwa Tea cocktail consist of ginger, orange, plum liqueur, guava juice, gingergrass tea and sorbet. The cocktails was really light and refreshing with just a lil bit of alcohol kick, it has a really nice and sweet scent in it, pair it with the sorbet to give an extra sour kick in it.
Strawberry Martini IDR 100k
The martini was fruity, lovely, sweet yet refreshing.
Tuna Pizza IDR 195k
Ponzu mayo, shiso, truffle oil
One of the most favorite and top recommended menu at Akira Back is their Tuna Pizza.
The pizza was thin and crunchy and topped with fresh thinly sliced tuna with amazing seasoning and a nice truffle oil kick in it. I still just cannot believe how can this simple looking thin pizza can taste extremely fancy and scrumptious!! It’s sooo good no words can describe, you just have to try it by yourself. Must must must order!
AB Tacos IDR 155k
Wagyu kalbi, spicy tomato ponzu
Crunchy taco shell filled with rich flavored yet juicy wagyu kalbi and topped with spicy and tangy tomato ponzu to balance the richness in the meat. Sweet, savory, tangy and spicy in one bite. A genius combo between Korean and Mexican dish indeed.
Miso Black Cod IDR 195k
Shishito, beet chili foam

Jidori Chicken IDR 210k

48 Hours Wagyu Short Ribs IDR 450k
With baby root veggies, quail egg
Slow and long cooking process of the wagyu short ribs resulting a very very very tender meat that taste sooo gooooood it melts in my mouth and my heart!!

A lovely plate of dessert consist of yuzu cheese cake, fresh fruits, edible soil and homemade berry ice cream. Cheese cake was very light and not too sweet at all with a nice citrus flavor from the yuzu. Sweet creamy, crunchy, fruity and tangy in one bite, Mr. Jajan loves it so much.
Overall, each dish from Akira Back has its own distinctive feature that you cannot find at any other place in Jakarta. Price might be quite high but the quality and flavor are unquestionable. Let’s Jajan!!
