Bread & Butcher, Cork & Screw Country Club, Jakarta

Bahasa l English

The sunny weekend and the bright sun are indeed fun for us to spend Sunday hanging out. Last weekend, at the Cork & Screw Country Club in the Senayan area, there was a collaboration with Jono's, a brand that produces and distributes various food ingredients such as ham, bacon, sausages and, many others with the concept of using locally produced ingredients. Then with Baro Bakery, a specialist in sweet dishes, which I suspect has only been operating this year.

In this collaboration, guests can enjoy a variety of meat specialties with a touch of Asian-Indonesian. Available from appetizers, vegetables, sharing packages with various sausages, and even unique desserts. The atmosphere at Cork & Screw is certainly familiar to Jakarta residents. The semi-outdoor restaurant area is surrounded by green grass and trees and a pond in the back side overlooking the golf area.

It's nice to spend time here while relaxing and enjoying food and drinks. It's just that it depends on the weather, coincidentally the air in Jakarta has been very hot, humid these days and indeed the effects of erratic weather and global warming are one of the factors for this. An important suggestion is to make a reservation in advance, especially on weekends where you can see endless visitors entering the restaurant. All seat capacity looks full in both indoor and pool areas.

The menu that I tried this time was Boudin Noir Hot Dog, one of the famous French dishes originally, a hot dog with a fairly large sausage made from processed intestines mixed with fat and blood. To some it may sound terrible, it does have a different texture and aroma than regular sausages. Then it is processed with minced pork, marinated squid, carambola sauce, crackers with squid ink, served on a sourdough coconut milk bun. Sausage with a stronger aroma, but balanced with a savory and legit sauce suits Asian tastes. Quality sourdough does provide the perfect experience when eating hot dogs.

The main sharing menu, such as Bread & Butcher Platter, is the main choice for guests in this collaboration. One large platter of assorted sausages, sourdough, vegetables, tomatoes, smoky pork, and peppers. A truly appetizing dish from its appearance, as well as its taste. The whole dish gives satisfaction when enjoying the meat. Processed with various spices and varied flavors so that each ingredient creates the right taste harmony.

Don't forget the unique dessert using a typical Indonesian fruit, salak, or snake fruit. If the apple or strawberry tart already sounds common, yes. How about salak tarts? Interesting! Rye tart with a crunchy and soft texture together, then snake fruit which is caramelized, so it looks brown, the sweet taste immediately feels like an apple but not too sweet so it feels smooth when enjoying it, especially I'm not a fan of sweet dishes.

The experience of enjoying this collaboration is memorable, there are no dishes with hard complexity, international dishes with a touch of modern touch that are indeed according to taste, look simple but provide rich and delicious dishes. For the price, which is relatively standard, it even tends to be affordable, IDR 350,000 ++ for a platter full of meat and can be shared for 2 people, worth it.

The pleasant atmosphere feels like we are far from the city of Jakarta, like in a beach area in Bali without white sand. Guests were seen enjoying their meal with cocktails and wine under the hot sun.
