December 20th, 2016. Lately, it’s been hard for me to start a review. It’s like I didn’t have anything in my head. OMG. I think I should make some opening for my blog. Hmm.. “Hi Eaters”.. and @designerdoyanmakan will kill me hahhahahha.. Let’s try another one..
Heyho!! Me again!! Now I will tell you about 12 new menus from one of Ismaya’s groups. I had a blogger’s gathering on last Tuesday. It’s located in Plaza Indonesia, on level 2. It’s very easy to find the place because it’s one of beautiful place there. Kitchenette Restaurant & Crêperie.
Kitchenette Restaurant & Crêperie is a heart-warming concept from Ismaya Group, where you are the heart and soul of our kitchen. Kitchenette is now open to serve you home-cooked goodness, great coffee, and various fresh off-the-kitchen comfort foods.
The basic premise behind Kitchenette’s concept is to create a social space, in form of a restaurant/café that portrays the experience of dining inside a kitchen of a friend whose family members love to cook.
The design of the space is full of kitchen cabinet, kitchen equipments, and kitchen accessories, integrated with a bit of ‘structured messiness’. The space is also cozy, ‘homey’, and casual. It portrays the friendly atmosphere that you feel when entering a friend’s house/kitchen. This concept works throughout the day – from brunch and all throughout lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, to late night social drinks.
oriental chicken salad, kale, grilled corn, cucumber & sesame dressing
looked like a healthy food. and it’s really healthy. they’re very generous with the well-seasoned chicken. the sesame dressing enhanced the delicious flavour of the dish.
vietnamese fried spring rolls, minced chicken, carrot, jicama & chilli vinegar sauce
it’s a really good to start your meal with a delicious starter. for example, this spring rolls. always prefer fried spring rolls than the steamed one. it was also very generous fillings. the minced chicken mixed exquisitely with the vegetables.
Pachyrhizus erosus, commonly known as jicama, Mexican yam bean, or Mexican turnip, is the name of a native Mexican vine, although the name most commonly refers to the plant’s edible tuberous root.
tokyo style tater tots with togarashi spice, japanese mayo, roasted seaweed & sesame
potato is always good for side dish. you named it. potato wedges, french fries, mashed potato, even this tater tots. this tater tots were also good to start this Christmas feast. soft texture with delicious flavour.
Tater tots are a side dish made from deep-fried, grated potatoes. They are widely recognized by their crispness and cylindrical shape. “Tater Tots” is a registered trademark of Ore-Ida that is often used as a generic term.
Tōgarashi (唐辛子) is Japanese for genus Capsicum, or specifically the species Capsicum annuum, and commonly translated as chili pepper.
classic double cheese burger, red cheddar, tomato, lettuce & pickles with potato chips
always love classic burger. make it double cheese burger, and i will get crazy. tender and juicy patty with melted cheese and sunny side up. yes, this one will be my favourite.
enchiladas “carne molida” baked with chili con carne, jalapenos, cheddar cheese sauce & sour cream
“little saigon” grilled pork chop platter with side of vietnamese spring roll, fried egg, cha gio dressing & jasmine rice
the pork chop was well-seasoned, but it’s too dry for me. good thing, it’s tender, just not as juicy as i hoped. the jasmine rice was fragrant and great texture. good combination with the pork chop. and fried egg was always good.
crispy chicken “cabai hijau” with hainan rice
sorry, i didn’t try the chicken, because my friends said it’s very spicy. i just ate the hainan rice. and i love it! flavourful with delicious taste. and i think, i finished them all hahahahaha.. sst.. don’t tell anyone.
wagyu beef brisket balado with jasmine rice & urap vegetable
spaghetti albacore tuna with chilli agli olio & poached farm fresh egg
al-dente spaghetti with spicy cooked tuna. not my thing. too spicy for me.
tuscan chicken leg parmigiana pasta tossed in french basil & garlic
christmas! that’s what i thought when i saw this dish. and, no, it’s not pesto hahaha. it’s actually basil. the chicken leg parmigiana was tender and juicy. a nice touch for the spaghetti.
lasagna a la nonna with bechamel & a hearty tomato sauce
lasagna was my weakness. and i was very peculiar about my taste bud. if it’s not good, i won’t give any good review about it. thank goodness, kitchenette’s lasagna was one of the best. fantastic texture with outstanding taste of the bechamel and tomato sauce. definitely a keeper.
thai chilli & cashew nut chicken tossed in a spicy sauce with steamed jasmine rice
delicious chicken meat combined with fragrant jasmine rice and spicy sauce. it’s like kungpao chicken hahahaha.. yeah, we talked about it. me and my friends. a bunch of crazy people LOL. actually this one wasn’t spicy at all. it’s very good for me who don’t like spicy food. 🙂
Thank you Kitchenette for the Christmas Feast.
