Luna Negra Plaza Bapindo Citibank Building Sudirman Jakarta

May 7th, 2016. On a bright Sunday, Leo and I decided to visit this place. For him, it’s one of his favourite place, and I’ve never been there. So yeah, there’s always a first time, right? Ladies and Gents, I present to you. Luna Negra.

Since it’s one long weekend, the place was not crowded at all. It’s only us. Yay, private brunch. LOL. I admired the place. It’s so lovely with elegant ambiance. But, not intimidating. Trust me. You will feel welcome there. The friendly people combine with comfortable place and delicious food, I believe that I will be back.

The Menu

Premium Tea 38k

I chose Jasmine tea. 🙂

Small Bites

Deep fried rice balls stuffed with mushroom and cheese 67k

It’s really good but I think it’s a little bit dry. I prefer more chewy and mushy. But no other complaint. Definitely one good starter.

Homemade Pasta

Black ink angel hair with clams and bottarga 135k

Love the angel hair. It’s quite unique to use black ink, but it wasn’t smelly or fishy at all. The angel hair is cooked just long enough that it is neither crunchy nor too soft. Al dente.

Bottarga is the Italian name for a delicacy of salted, cured fish roe, typically of the grey mullet frequently found near coastlines throughout the world, that often is featured in Mediterranean cuisine and consumed in many other regions of the world. The food bears many different names and is prepared in several different ways.

Main Course

Chicken scaloppine with Mushroom/Marsala wine sauce served with gratin vegetables 142k

OMG! I was in love. The mushroom sauce was delicious with great texture. Creamy and melt in your mouth. The boneless chicken  was juicy and tender. So flavourful, it’s literally making me drooling while eating it. LOL.

Scaloppine is an Italian dish consisting of thinly sliced meat that is dredged in wheat flour, sautéed, then heated and served with a tomato-, or wine-sauce; or piccata, which denotes a caper and lemon sauce.

For first-timer to Luna Negra, I was very satisfied. It made me feel sad because I haven’t got a chance to try their pork leg. Leo said it was one of the best there. So, I just hope that they will relaunch the pork leg, someday. 🙂 Btw, thanks Leo for letting me join your lunch that day. Always happy to find a new place for me to enjoy good food.
