La Moda, Plaza Indonesia, Central Jakarta

Bahasa l English 

La Moda is one of the exclusive restaurants located in the middle of Plaza Indonesia shopping center. The central open area with the dominant white-sided hall gives the impression of elegance, gray tiles and wooden elements on tables and chairs with a plain, clean and exclusive feel. Comfortable atmosphere, each seat is equipped with a soft cushion that makes you feel at home.
The visit this time I had the opportunity to taste a variety of dishes from one of the Celebrity Chef, Yvonne Mei Wing that serves classic dishes of Chinese. Available menu mainstay like rice hainam which of course is quite familiar to society Jakarta. Hainam rice served with chunks of boiled chicken is quite tender, but it is a little bit plain. Highly recommended to enjoy it along with tasty hainam rice.
One of my favorite is Wanton that can be served fried or boiled and wet with broth sauce. A soft boiled wanton with delicious contents of vegetables and chicken meat. Combined with broth sauce and enjoyed together gives a perfect flavor.
Mapo tofu also my dinner menu choice this time. Served in a typical Chinese clay bowl, tofu with small boxed pieces processed with minced chicken meat and cooked with spices that tastes quite spicy. The dish is very delicious when enjoyed along with the warm rice.
Besides Chinese food, I also tried one of La Moda's signature is La Moda Ikan Bakar. Beautiful fish presentation with a tantalizing aroma, a thick brownish black color is served with chili sauce on top and comes with burned rice wrapped in leaves. The texture of soft fish, savory and spicy seasoning is really delicious. In addition, there is a fragrant aroma of smoky and gives a different flavor elements.
After some savory food, it is time for a sweet dessert there is mochi. Mochi with a chewy texture, the size of small balls served with sesame and bean sprinkles throughout the mochi section and beautiful presentation with colorful garnishes. At the time to eat it like a typical Java Onde, only there is a dominant almond nuts taste.
La Moda is indeed one of the most popular exclusive restaurants in Jakarta. With a strategic location, the dominant elegant concept and varied food dishes. Other info, the price offered is quite high where the customer may need to spend Rp100.000 per person. Service is quite friendly, but with a large enough area so it takes a little effort to call the waiter around.
