[REBRANDING] Ismaya Catering Co. to The People’s Cafe Grand Indonesia Thamrin Jakarta

February 24th, 2014. I went to Ismaya Catering Co which is located in Grand Indonesia. After several times wondering, “Is it good? Is it delicious?” finally I could try and share it with you guys 🙂

When I walked into the place, I felt so comfortable. The place was so cozy with wooden furnitures. It felt like a home with beautiful rooms.

I really love the way they decorate the place. Simply beautiful. Make me feel welcome. I believe everybody think the same as well.

Nachos with Beef Chili Con Carne 45k

The Nachos was served with beef chill con carne, pieces of jalapeño and red chilli. Do not forget to  dip it to 3 sauces: salsa, guacamole and sour cream. Surprisingly, I love the guacamole sauce. I like this menu but not my favourite. It was a little bit spicy.


Mexican Cheese Quesadilla 48k

Consists of mushroom, paprika, onion, coriander leaf and cheese. Still with pieces of jalapeño and red chilli. Served with 3 sauces: salsa, guacamole, and sour cream. I love this one. More than the nachos. Really like it. I can eat them all by myself. The cheese was very delicious, added a unique taste to the quesadilla.



Nasi Goreng Kecombrang 45k

It’s a fried rice with kecombrang, chicken, red onion and lemongrass. Served with pickles and sunny side-up. Kecombrang is known as Torch Ginger, Ginger Flower, Red Ginger Lily, Torch Lily, Wild Ginger etc. It’s an essential ingredients in some place. It’s called honje flower too 🙂


Soto Tangkar with Jasmine Rice 45k

Soto tangkar is Betawi specialty soto made of chopped beef ribs and beef brisket cooked in coconut milk soup spiced with turmeric, garlic, shallot, chili, pepper, candlenut, cumin, galangal, coriander, cinnamon, Indonesian bay-leaf and kaffir lime leaf. This soto tangkar was served with tomato, potato, scallion, celery, fried onions. Served with rice and melinjo crackers (emping). First I thought the soto was flavourless, but after I added sweet soy sauce it became so tasty.



Molten Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream 40k

Molten chocolate cake or lava cake is a popular dessert that combines the elements of a flourless chocolate cake and a soufflé. Ismaya Catering combined the moist chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream, which makes it perfect. The vanilla ice cream was very delicious. Love it.


Singkong Belanda 32k

Singkong is cassava. This was very delicious dessert. The cassava was fried, and served with caramel sauce and grated cheese. It was crispy, sweet and cheesy. Cassava is not my favourite food. But I was surprised that I enjoy the Singkong Belanda. Nice job Ismaya!!



Red Melon Berry Refresher 35k

This was really a thirst quencher. Sweet and refreshing. Love it.


Virgin Apple Mojito 35k

Mojito never fails me. It is so refreshing. They used apple for the mojito, while usually people use only lime. But that’s what special about this mojito. Try it and you’ll be amazed by the taste.


Thank you Ismaya for giving us a chance to try the new menu. See you again on your next event.
