November 17th, 2014. It’s raining. We have to find another place to waste our money. LOL. So, we go to Colony, after we decided to try FJ on 7, a rooftop dining place. I heard about this place several times. I thought it will be a best place to hang out to end our culinary journey today. But, unfortunately, we had a not really nice experience there. Huft.. I will tell you along the way yaaaaa..
I have no chance to take many pictures, because it’s getting dark and I am hungry as hell. So, I just take 2 pictures from our table, and get ready to look at the menu. I am starving!!!
Nasi Goreng Kampung 115k
with chicken drumstick, mixed skewer and fried egg
When I ask, whether I should order Nasi Goreng Kampung or Hainan Chicken Rice, the server recommends Nasi Goreng Kampung to me. Ok, I tell him that I want the egg half cooked sunny side-up. I tell him that I will return the egg if it’s not sunny side-up. True, the egg comes as sunny side-up, but not half cooked. Huft. I’m starving, so I think I forgive him for that. Well, actually I expect more from the Nasi Goreng Kampung. It’s 115k. Not cheap, right? But, sorry, there’s nothing special about it. What a big disappointment. 😦
Lontong Cap Gomeh 100k
Traditional Indonesian dish served with classic Indonesian condiments
When the dish came, we thought, “Wow, nice! Big portion!” It’s so big, indeed. But, when we try it, another big disappointment. The lontong is very mushy. The soup is so bland. I prefer the rich one. The tasty one. Not only a bland soup with mushy lontong. What we need is a delicious dish, not just a big portion. For 100k, too pricey!!!
There’s nothing special about this kwee-tiauw too. The good thing about the kwee-tiauw that the seafood is a little bit generous. How about the taste? Just so-so.. Even the prawn is not fresh, too mushy. For 97k, it’s.. yes.. another big disappointment, again. Sorry, but I expect more from 97k dish. Not just a generous seafood with a so-so quality. -.-
Hot Tea French Breakfast 56k (Tea Pot)
I always order hot tea for my drink, because they used to give a free refill hot water. Before I order my drink, I asked the server, whether I could refill my hot tea with hot water for free, and he said yes. So, I prefer the free refill drink, right? After I finished my tea, I asked them to refill hot water for me, and they said, “Oo, we cannot refill the tea.” We are not happy, of course. Why? Because we asked first. If I cannot refill my hot tea, I will order something else. Come on. 56k for not-free-refill-hot-tea? You must be joking! Btw, they told me that they didn’t have English Breakfast (my usual tea), instead they recommend French Breakfast. But surprisingly, I cannot find a tea bag in the tea pot. So, is it really French Breakfast? It’s still a mystery.
Well, I write this review based on my own experience. Sorry, but it’s really not a good experience. They should improve their service and quality of their food. Because I don’t feel the food worth the price.
