Benedict, Grand Indonesia Mall, Central Jakarta

Tuesday, at least it's better than monday. Afterwork done, i had been to the Grand Indonesia, one of my fav spot in town. Actually, i went there to look present for my cousin b'day. Just took a hour i found it and surely i need to get my dinner. I decided to go to Benedict, it is a quite new open restaurant, about couple of months if i do not mistake.

During dinner time, it was very crowded until only one table unoccupied. Each tables are very close since they try to separated it so would become more space for customers. Without wait longer, i just took that seat where a peoples at my right and left but i don't mind, i was just so starved. From it concept, Benedict has quite similar ambiance with Union which is they are related group. Benedict is serve European dishes with some variant of menu. I ordered a starter by Scotch Eggs.



A soft boiled eggs, enclosed in chicken hamburg, katsuobushi and poured with mayo. It is crunchy, tasty, the egg is in good shape and perfectly matched with mayo sauce.


It is cost for Rp 35,000,-. much worth it with the taste. Next to first main course, Chicken Pull Benedict.


It is one of special menu that night. Served by soft boiled eggs covered with hollandaise sauce on toast completed with chopped seasoned chicken and bunch of avocado with sauteed potato and grilled watermelon. It's served beautifully, overall, this menu set is good, great seasoning, pleasure of eggs but watermelon is kinda weird i think :-). this cost for Rp 85,000.-


Another main i had was Foie Gras Rice. It is a confit duck poured with crispy garlic, sous-vide egg, and pickled shitake mushroom also teriyaki glaze.


Foie Gras taste good, nice smell as well. mixed good with other ingredients, But with rice and teriyaki glaze, it does turn down luxury impression of foie gras, looks like classic sauteed rice with some ingredients. But don't worry, sure it taste good. For this dish cost Rp 140,000.- is make sense.


Done the dinner, of course drink for finishing i ordered Orange reviver. It is a blended orange, dragon fruit, mint & lime. Sour fresh indeed! for Rp 50,000.- juice in mall restaurant is normal i guess.


So basically, Benedict has offering menu set with egg mostly, in variant type of servings, shape, color, and taste. Place is fine, normal western food concept, dark light ambiance. But assure you, they have good foods overall.
