Return of the Ribs

You’ve never been porked like this before…

In a spectacular move of culinary altruism, Mr. Piggy (the estranged common-law husband of Miss Piggy) has kindly agreed to make his return appearance at the Bistro, yielding to Jakarta connoisseurs the meaty eating pleasure Yaudah Bistro is famed for.

We’re not ribbing you when we make our claim to fame with these slabs of slow-motion oven-baked spicy PORK RIBS, mercifully grilled and artistically basted on a charcoal rotisserie.

The most demanding meat connoisseur will conclude these toothsome ribs are worth the journey to Jalan Johar.Sit down, dig in, and gnaw to your growling heart’s content.

Here’s the real deal, Neat: full ribsides of juicy meat@ approx 2.2 kilo each. One serving will fill you up to the brim with vim and energy, spiced with the Ya-Udah special Barbeque Sauce.

Every order of our magnificent Pork Ribs can be washed down with 2 bowls of complementary Ya-Udah Goulash Soup and 2 side servings of German Kraut-salad.

You may have been disappointed and dismayed at what our competitors call “ribs”: scrawny bony baby back ribs, with thin bits of meat in between. You need to hire a detective to find the flesh.

Keep the faith! Remember, faint heart never screwed the cook.

Rp 495,000 / slab, Dine-in or Take-away

Painful Punch Line: Our Prices are Going Up Starting on the 1st July

Sorry, sorry, what can we say. We love your patronage at YaUdah Bistro and we do appreciate your faithful custom. But we have held the line since early 2011, sticking with the old prices through thick and thin; now we are unfortunately going to have to pass along some of our steeply-rising costs to our beloved clientele. Have a drink or two and brace yourself as you look at our “adjusted” menu. No, we’re not jacking them sky-high!! We continue to beat the competition.

yubnewWelcome to Ya-Udah, the website highlighting the famed Jakarta landmark where we gather to enjoy fine European / Asian food, good drink (strong and otherwise), a classic indoor / outdoor dining style and one another’s pleasant company.

The principal intention of the website is to introduce, inform, amuse and interest those looking for good eats at the right price in the classic Menteng area, and to welcome our legions of old friends, whose support and patronage has sustained Ya-Udah over the decades.

In Vino Veritas

To pose our readers a rhetorical question...
Where else in Jakarta Can you enjoy a pleasant glass of house wine
In a pleasant indoor / outdoor environment
For forty-five thousand Rupiah??

Ya-Udah is one of a kind. So come by and sit down with us. Raise a glass or three of our plonk, to toast whomever you feel like toasting. Our humble but tasty house wine won’t kill you – as a matter of fact it might even sterilize your inner organs (always a matter of concern in polluted Jakarta).
