Kicking off my lunch that day with something fresh, light but flavorful in the same time! Air dried raw beef, with cherry tomatoes, Arugula leaves (rocket leaves), Parmesan cheese, balsamic and truffle oil dressing! So aromatic, so fresh, with generous thin beef slices, just altogether delicious!
Lumpia Tahu Ayam – IDR 49k
Now this is a simple delicacy that’s delicious! Classic, humble, friendly!
Nasi Goreng Tinta Cumi with Seafood – IDR 99k
The black color of this fried rice came from the squid ink (so no artificial coloring), and the fried rice’s served with cloud sunny side up, crackers, and veges on the side. This was one of my favorite menus from the lunch that day, generally, I found the fried rice to be fragrant with this beautiful harmony of savory, salty and a tad hint of sweet, inside you should find mainly generous dice-cut squid for that extra chewiness!
Filleto di Manzo – IDR 300k
Prime tenderloin cut that’s cooked perfectly ‘medium’ just how I like it, and that sits on top of the sauteed vegetables, mushroom medley, with olive oil! The beef was tender, juicy with light seasoning (which I find very important as afterall all I really want from a beautiful steak is the natural flavor of the meat that comes with the tender and juicy texture). I also appreciate how the mashed potato is not the overly mushy kind as I personally prefer the one with more texture and lumps on it. This steak is love!
Capelli D’Angelo All Aragosta – IDR 100k/ounce
A very recommended pasta dish for those who fancy pasta dishes for their meal! Angel hair pasta lightly cooked and tossed with olive oil, chili flakes, garlic and various seasoning, then topped with Arugula leaves (man I love how they’re so freaking generous with rocket leaves here), and finalized with freshly grilled lobster and tobiko! It came in a pretty generous portion (and can be shared for 2/3 people), the pasta was overall properly salty but the highlight has got to be the uber fresh lobsters for sure, it’s so beautifully cooked, juicy and three was the proper amount for the portion!
Rendang Pizza – IDR 115k
The pizzas here are baked in this traditional wood fire oven and there’s actually an open kitchen at the back area of this restaurant where you can experience first hand the production process. I’ve always loved when pizza’s made this way I just feel this additional excitement towards it (and eating it).
This Rendang pizza was pretty rich in terms of seasoning and that’s obviously a good thing because I can’t stand underseasoned Rendang pizza it’s almost an insult for me. The thin crust was beautifully firm and properly dense, the generous Rendang cuts were quite tender,
Waffer Cassava – IDR 59k
To be frank, the elements of this dish is pretty simple, basically biscuits, chocolate hazelnut, fermented cassava with vanilla ice cream on the side but everything was such a beautiful harmony to my palate. Never the biggest fan of fermented cassava but they managed to make the right opacity for this dessert! The right sweetness, play of texture and simplicity, me likey!
