Place: Between LIPPO MAL main entrance and FJ Grill
Portion: Just right
From the title I guess you can guess what is I am going to write here. This restaurant occupied quite big space in the ground floor in the outside Kemang Village Mall. It's a bit hard to find if you don't really walk from the main entrance towards FJ Grill or The Empire tower. When I came, I was quite curious what they can serve to the guess. They have a bakery island near to the counter and clean decor inside and the menu was quite vary from Indonesian to Italian food.
So as Indonesian, to try whether the restaurant is worth to visit next time, I ordered standard dish: Nasi Goreng (Fried rice). I also ordered Chicken Salad and Bruschetta to share with my husband. The waiter was quite nice however very slow to explain what they have.
So while we're waiting for our food. I walked around the bakery island and chose bread for snack at home. There was a black bread with chuck of cheese inside that attracted my eyes. And it seemed that the bread is their specialties. So I decided to buy it.
So I tried the Chicken Salad first. The chicken was dry and the dressing somehow did not fit with total taste. And I tried the Bruschetta, the tomato's color was just too pale for "appetizers" and the bread also dry. It failed the function to increase my appetite. We decided to ignore the 2 appetizers and I moved to my main standard main course, Fried Rice. Thanks God after those 2 previous meals, I already maintain my expectation, it was so horrible. No taste at all, flat and boring. The only taste that I can remember was only the prawn crackers. I will not say anything else about it, because I have nothing to say.
It's really pity that with such a nice decor and very strategic place, this restaurant can't deliver the taste. I really hope, if one of the management read this review, they can revamp the total taste of their foods, bakery and drinks.
