No, I'm not For those who don't know, Holycow is a super famous steak restaurant for selling wagyu beef at cheap price. I went there on a Saturday night. The place was opened on 6.30 pm but when I arrived at 7, the place was a mad house! The line was really long and I had to wait for about an hour to get a seat. I heard people started waiting in line from 6 pm! Holy cow! :p

Don't expect it to be your regular fancy steakhouse. The place was just a little off street with tent. It was really packed considering the amount of people eating and waiting in line, and the space was tiny to begin with.

We were seated at about 7.50 p.m. aaannndd the super famous wagyu rib eye was sold out! :'( So I got the second most popular dish, which was the Wagyu Sirloin Steak. I started to wonder whether the rib eye was just a myth since my cousin went there a couple of times and they always ran out of the wagyu rib eye. However, my friend confirmed that she had tried it out. At least, we knew that it did exist! lol

Wagyu Sirloin Steak (200gr) with mushroom sauce - Rp 93k

The wagyu sirloin was really cheap, noted that it was wagyu but I forgot to ask what grade it was. Yes it was tender but not wagyu tender, if you know what I mean. I was a little bit disappointed. Maybe I had a very high expectation since everyone was raving about it. But hey, what do you expect, the steak was less than 100k. It's hard to find a good steak at that price, let alone a wagyu steak. 

I chose mushroom sauce since the waiter said it was their specialty, and it wasn't what I expected either. The mushroom sauce was more like the one for pasta instead of for steak. My cousin had his with black pepper sauce and I thought it tasted waay better than my mushroom sauce. So I would suggest you get the black pepper sauce, regardless the waiters' recommendation.

I usually had my steak done medium, but in Indonesia, unless it was a reputable steakhouse/restaurant, I would ordered it medium well. My cousin beat me again, he ordered his medium, and it tasted wayy better than mine. It was tender and juicy, but I could taste the blood somehow at the middle part. eww...

We ordered the refillable ice lemon tea. I forget how much it was, but I think it's about Rp 12k-ish. I would not suggest you to order the refillable tea since the steak was huge that you'd be too full to have it refilled.

I'm really sorry for the crappy picture. If you know me, you'll know that I always bring my camera with me everywhere, even for work! However, I forget to bring it this time so I had to take the picture with my phone :'(

They will give you free tiramisu (value Rp 9k), if you post status on facebook or tweet that you're at @holycowsteak.
