A brand new restaurant that recently opened. Specified in Thai cuisine, with an array of soup dishes, and selection of toppings. Possibly one of a few Thai places in here that serves pork.
I picked the Supernova, uber spicy but delicious Tom Yum soup with variety of toppings and rice noodle. Their toppings are quite generous given the price is fairly reasonable. If you don’t fancy noodles, you can choose rice as well.
The pork skewers however…so succulent, very tender, so falvoursome. Most reccomended dish out of all! Haven’t got the chance to try their other dishes, but will visit again soon in the incoming future.
We were just looking for a place to eat on one late evening, unfortunately the place we intended to go was closed that day, and we were facing a great dillema. And then we spotted this little place hidden between all the glitz and glamour of surounded restaurants. And it was amazing!!
It is a small warung, so it’s far from fancy, with no air-con. But that is the ultimate beauty of it! We tried the Nasi Gandul and Garang Asem dishes, both seem to be staple...
AMAZING, is all I can wax poetic about this recently opened (at least in Puri area) Vietnamese place. Given that a few vietnamese places in Jakarta tend to not having any pork dishes available, Pho Street is like a light at the end of the tunnel for me.
Albeit they don’t have a lot in their menu, but they cover the very best. Very fresh broth, generous amount of meat and noodles, and delicious chilli oil condiments. And on such reasonable price tag too! Will definitely be my favourite spot to hang out from now on!
Haven’t actually tried the rice dishes yet, but those will be my to-eat list for next visits.
My only concern is, perhaps they need to prepare more of the herbs and fresh vegies for the pho, in case they ran out.
A very amazing small joint this was. Kudos for the all day brekky menu, and pork bacon!! Portion-wise can be a bit overwhelming, but with the price-tag, it was worthed. The ultimate highlight I have to say was the candied bacon, such a great marriage of sweet and savoury and sinful. They also have assorted beverages, my faves are Butterscotch Latte and Cafe Bombon!
A new place is now open, and it offers a new rather authentic experience to enjoy the beloved katsu dish, with a modern twist. Millefeuille style!
Thin slices of meat layered neatly and then deep-fried using fairly course panko breading, creates a wonderful mixture of crunch with tender juicy meat. ANd there are a few selections you can choose : original, cheese, negi, garlic, and black pepper. We chose the cheese and garlic, the cheese was splendid…the garlic however lacks the garlicy punch. It could be just the garlic-lover in me wanting a little bit of a kick…but over-all they all taste pretty lovely.
This place also instructs us how to properly enjoy a nice katsu dish, we are given a mini mortar and pestle in which we can concoct our very own sauce using toasted sesame seeds and a special sauce.
The appetizers are quite a feast! A Japanese-style Scotch egg, and deep fried (sinfully) delicious chicken skin are highly recommended.
