Enjoy a good, old-fashioned burger, enhanced to a new dry-aged level of greatness. By Runi Indrani
Located at ASHTA District 8, a lifestyle hub in the stylish area of Jakarta that comprises the current go-to dining and shopping destinations, Patty & Sons offers guests a warm ambience to enjoy good, all-American burgers. The city’s insiders and long-time foodies already know that Patty & Sons is the latest brainchild of the masterminds who came up with Ask For Patty.
Starting out as a home-based business, due to high demand, Ask For Patty now has four outlets throughout Jakarta, serving an elaborate selection of burgers and trimmings – decadent fries, milkshakes, and doughnuts; you know the drill! So, what differentiates Patty & Sons from its older sister?
While Ask For Patty showcases the easy and casual ambience of a diner, Patty & Sons exudes a classic American-style bistro ambience. Imagine dark timber, intimate lighting, and cosy booths. Diners can sit by the bar for pre-dinner drinks or in a more casual setting. The outdoor area is verdant and a great choice for those looking for fresh air.
Patty & Sons also dries age beef in-house to use in their patties. The house-blend patty is made up of 30-day dry-aged beef and bone marrow, elevating the flavour and the juiciness. Burger enthusiasts might want to start with The Classic, a stack of 130g patty, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles and Russian sauce.
However, you can’t leave Patty & Sons without trying Patty Smith. With a 130g patty, American cheese, thick-cut smoked bacon, lettuce, pickled red onion and marrownaise – yes, you read that right – she really does know how to rock. The fancy dish comes in the form of truffle burger, filled with the usual trimmings, plus shaved black truffle, truffle jus and burnt garlic aioli.
Another thing that sets Patty & Sons apart is that the menu extends beyond burgers, with classic sandwiches, pasta and wood-fire grilled steaks. Each section comprises a compact, but curated selection. The lobster BLT with smoked beef bacon and soft brioche makes a great lunch option, and the beef shin ragu pappardelle is ideal for a quick, hearty bite.
For a fulfilling feast, the steak selection is too good to pass. Opt for the 30-day dry-aged USDA prime cuts, or the wet-aged black Angus, and choose from the bordelaise, béarnaise, bone marrow gravy, or peppercorn sauce. The sides on offer are a festive feast of their own, with dishes like truffle mac & cheese, and aged beef fat fries with truffle salt.
Pair all the meaty goodness with a wine of your choosing from the restaurant’s fine selection, and don’t forget to save some space for dessert. The burnt apple tart with honeycomb ice cream and wood-baked cheesecake with orange marmalade is to die for.
