Steak with a modern izakaya touch.
The new menu is a step-up from the usual steaks but also focuses on the ingredients’ natural flavors—something minimalist Jua does really well.
Grab the Prawn Aguachile (B280, fresh prawns, lime juice, jalapeno, cilantro, chili, lime juice, sea salt, and garlic purée), a fresh and light but flavorful dish to start before moving onto the heavier, meatier fare.
All their steaks are cooked on fruit wood charcoal and are surprisingly affordable. For beef lovers, they offer black angus three cuts, hanger (B1,150/300g); tenderloin (B1,250/250g); and striploin (B1,150/300g).
For those who don’t eat beef, their overnight brined pork chop (B750/500g) and half baby chicken (B340) will hit the spot.
Always remember to book in advance, as they tend to get very busy. If you decide to sit inside, make sure you don’t wash your hair before because their indoor open kitchen can make things a little smoky.
