In an effort to continue providing Jakarta’s affluent foodies with extraordinary dining experiences, the InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah has developed an exclusive new dining event at its signature Sugar & Spice restaurant.

Every Thursday evening, Sugar & Spice offers meat lovers in the capital a new twist on the Wagyu dining experience.

An elite staple of foodie connoisseurs everywhere, wagyu beef has been on the block for a long time. Wagyu is the result of hundreds of years of interbreeding between native Japanese cattle and foreign cattle from other Asian and European countries since the Meiji period in the late 1800s.

Today, four breeds of cattle are considered wagyu: black Japanese; Japanese brown, also known as red wagyu in the United States; Japanese respondents; and the Japanese shorthorn.

Being an important commodity, wagyu products are marketed using brands. The most prestigious brands are called sandai wagyu, which comes from the Tajima strain of Japanese black. The best known of these are Kobe, Matsusaka and Ōmi beef.

However, not all wagyu are considered equal. These beef cuts are rigorously graded at all times by trained experts using highly regulated standards of measurement to ensure that only the best beef balls are marketed correctly.

InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah’s award-winning food and beverage (F&B) team has sourced the world’s finest cuts of wagyu beef, making exquisite beef balls the focus of their culinary creativity.

Diners can expect a new level of mind-blowing taste explosions from dishes such as sate wagyu maranggi, wagyu aburi, Tajima wagyu strip loin and braised wagyu beef shank. Additionally, a selection of carefully selected premium wines will also be available to accompany these superb works of meat art.

This exclusive, high-quality meat feast takes place every Thursday at Sugar & Spice from 6 p.m., with prices starting at Rp498,000++ (US$33.22) per person.
