Holy Smokes (Kebayoran Baru, Jakarta)

Holy Smokes

Holy Smokes is the new established restaurant by Ersons Foods, F&B company behind Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, The Holy Crab and The Holy Crab Shack. Holy Smokes specializes in serving Texas slow-smoked BBQ in a fast-casual dining concept. (you will know why it is named as fast-casual dining later on!) As you might see in the picture above, they are still doing several finishing touch for the restaurant, but they will be open this weekend (11 & 12 July starting from 5 PM) in case you want to taste their slow-smoked BBQ sooner!

The restaurant itself is quite big and spacious, I reckon they can accommodate up to 100 people. The interior is designed with industrial concept which you might often see at other place(s) nowadays.

The unique thing is their ordering system which adopt fast-food style ordering system, so you will have to go to the ordering counter, then order and pay for your meal and you will be given a pager-like device. The device will vibrate and beep once your order(s) are ready, and you will have to pick up your order at the pick up counter. I've gotta say that the ordering system is pretty efficient and effective. (so now you know why they called themselves fast-casual dining concept restaurant, right?)

Let's get started with their food!

Smoky Beef Brisket (IDR 142k - 3 Slices Include 2 Sides)

There are 2 types of portion for the Smoky Beef Brisket, you can choose whether you want to have it 2 slices (160g) for IDR 118k with 2 sides or 3 slices (240g) for IDR 142k with 2 sides. The Smoky Beef Brisket was served along with onion straw, baked beans and mac & cheese. The beef brisket tasted heavenly delicious as it was tender, flavorful and perfectly smoked. I'm telling you that the most delicious part was the fat! it was superb!

To be honest, I was a little bit shocked when I saw those huge whole chicken on the plate. (lol!) The BBQ Chicken was served along with onion straw, corn and baked beans. The outer layer of the chicken tasted delicious although the meat was a bit dry and tasteless. Oh and have I mentioned that their onion straw is awesome? You really have to try it and I bet you will fall in love with their onion straw!

Texas Short Ribs was served along with homecut fries, corn and onion straws. The short ribs was drenched in BBQ sauce. They have 2 kinds of BBQ sauce, the first one is the oil smoky BBQ sauce which has sweet and sour flavor, the second one is the hot smoky BBQ sauce which has sweet, a little bit sour and spicy sauce. I didn't get to try this one but I will definitely try it on my next visit!

BBQ Chicken Salad (IDR 55k)

If you prefer to have healthier food, don't worry because they have this BBQ Chicken Salad which consists of various veggies, avocado, BBQ chicken and the signature onion straw. The color of the salad was really pretty, kudos for the plating technique!

Overall, I had a great dinner at Holy Smokes, the food tasted pretty delicious, the service was quick and the place is nice. It's great to know that Erson Foods keep innovating and bringing new concept to the F&B world in Jakarta. I do wish that they could maintain the consistency of their service and food. I wish best of luck for Holy Smokes and thanks for having me!
