The integration of activated charcoal cheese in the recipes of Jakarta-based steakhouse Willie Brothers adds an extremely curious component to the restaurant's dishes. Sure to appeal to food bloggers, the tasty innovation is a perfect Instagram photo opportunity. While the curious and dark appearance of the charcoal cheese provides a sharp aesthetic difference within the arrangement of the plate, the restaurant-quality component is sure to shift the taste from traditional to something new and experimental. The product is cleverly named 'Venom Cheese.'
Willie Brothers created its latest ingredient by mixing processed activated charcoal with mozzarella. When under heat, the concoction turns "into a gooey black pool." It is this type of venture that ensures restaurants stay relevant and on the radar of locals and travelers.
