The menu begins with a 3-course appetizer that is served together those are, Bruschetta Lollipop, serving two crackers resembling lollipop on a gorgeous red tomato pile, sweet tomatoes, parmesan & rosemary. The taste of Italy is so dominant here, the texture is crunchy with the well done seasoning.
Then there's Hot Potato, at a glance this one sound a basic dish, but the fragrant aroma of kluwak gives a great sensation. Clearly black kluwak seasoning almost covered two potatoes on it. The texture of soft potatoes with kluwak flavor that is the spice of Indonesia is very delicious. Another appetizer menu, Chili Satay, chicken satay shaped red chilli sure draw big attention. Chicken satay & a layer of red chili with a soft texture, savory seasoning is a typical taste of Indonesia.
The next menu we were treated to a variety of seafood dishes are fascinating. Starting with Smoked Butterfish, a rich-flavored fish with the right freshness, soft texture served with beet yogurt also a beautiful pink color, zucchini pickles and parsley in the form of crumbles underneath. Each element is combined to produce amazing taste.
Then there is Rice Tempura Soft Shell Crab, a menu that is currently quite trendy in Jakarta. Soka crab with soft shell wrapped in fried flour with a crunchy texture accompanied by fresh pineapple chunks, rice rengginang (rice cracker) and curry leaves that give a fragrant aroma. And there is a Grilled Octopus that is served beautifully with Asian-style gazpacho, fresh apple chunks, cauliflower and cilantro. A fragrant, smoky aroma, delicious octopus texture and other combinations are delicious.
In addition to seafood, we also enjoy unique beef dishes. Processed beef served with pieces of crisp potatoes, onions and boiled eggs ready to melt on it. A savory taste blends into one and becomes the main dish that is so tempting.
For dessert, we were served with a Bali Breakfast, just like an egg with a white colored and yellow sponge that resembles a fried egg. Apparently this is a dessert with whipped coconut, yellow sprouts derived from mango and there are passion fruit. In addition, the second dessert of Brownie, with a pretty unique presentation, a dish of chocolate mousse, sugar palm ice cream and chocolate crumbs with a bitter and sweet taste together to produce the right combination.
This dinner experience is perfect with the cozy, classy Cassis restaurant ambiance accompanied by slow rock music that makes the evening atmosphere hype. Friendly service and good timing food presentation is certainly a supporting factor of this Tasting Table event.
