Fume Kartanegara, Jakarta

Bahasa l English

Wow, it's been a long time since I've written an article on the blog because the activity of visiting restaurants is very reduced during this pandemic. Most of my food is delivered or almost every day I cook it myself. This time I visited a restaurant that had only recently been operating. It should be noted that Fume previously had two coffee shop branches in the South Jakarta area.

Meanwhile, Fume Kartanegara has a different concept, more like proper dining, and there is also a bar. On weekends, it is quite crowded with visitors, they have an area with quite a lot of seating capacity from indoor to outdoor. Inside the restaurant, there is a calm atmosphere, dim lighting with a play of colors such as pink, violet, purple and blue. The ceiling is a unique area with an interior resembling a hall. The bar area also looks stunning with plant ornaments, the color turquoise is one of my favorite colors.

The menu is a variety of modern Asian Western dishes, with quite a lot of variants from the breakfast croissant menu, the main course of grilled chicken or salmon to ice cream and dessert. This time I tried Salmon Sayur Asem, a menu that is quite unique. Tender pieces of salmon with the perfect cook, juicy and tender. Served with potato cubes, long beans, baby corn, and chayote. Then doused with a fairly thick sauce with a sour sensation that resembles Sayur Asem. This dish is quite enjoyable, with the combination of perfectly cooked salmon, vegetables, and a savory and sour sauce just right. It's just that for the main dish the price is Rp. 165,000++ and it looks like there are only 2 potatoes with a small size. For ladies, it might be ok, but for me, it's not so generous.

Then I continued straight to the dessert dish, Kerinci Coffee & Brown Creme Brulee. The menu is quite interesting too when I look at it. Serving creme brulee with a rectangular shape, soft texture, and an ok moist. Sweet taste that fits the typical creme brulee. Served with chocolate ice cream which is also my favorite flavor, and berry sauce and some cranberries. The price of IDR 80,000 is generally quite high for a dessert for the Jakarta community. But with the serving size, I still recommend you guys to try it.

For drinks, of course, they serve a variety of coffee as the main drink. I myself am not a coffee drinker but my friend said that coffee with a high acid level so that the after taste is excessive. But we know that for coffee, it will depend on your individual preferences, whether you are a fruity coffee lover or a bold and bitter one. To hang out here is quite a recommendation, a quiet afternoon or evening with slow music accompaniment also provides a comfortable atmosphere. For the overall price, the menu is quite high, almost resembling a high-end Western restaurant. Service is quite ok, fast serving time.

Phoenix Gastrobar, Newest Aesthetic Lounge, Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta

Bahasa l English Back to writing a blog, okay while I had time to break after the festive season in last December 2022. In 2023, of course, I hope to be able to actively blog again with the latest and interesting information that I think is memorable to convey. So like this bar that just opened in the Pantai Indah Kapuk area of Jakarta. Phoenix Gastrobar, a new concept presented by HWG, is one of the newest brands by the pioneers in the restaurant, bar, and club industry today. Next to each other between the two clubs presented before, are Tiger & Dragon Bar. The concept offered at Phoenix is completely different from previous HWG outlets. First I'll say the interior is absolutely stunning, with 3 story bar & lounge with stairs that reminds me of Hogwarts, the school in the Harry Potter movies. There is a DJ booth in the main area, a fountain that gives an elegant impression, and a bar station with a magnificent display rack of dozens of liquor. If you have frequently visi
