August 11th, 2017. I heard about Up in Smoke on my birthday. I knew they will open on July 20th. Since I had another events, I didn’t take my time to visit the place. And along with the time, I totally forgot about it.. until Aline told me about their lunch promo. Ok, let’s go there.
At first, I thought it replaced the previous restaurant that closed around 2 or 3 months ago. Turned out, it’s totally a new location. The place is managing 2 restaurants. Up in Smoke (open at 11:00) and One Eyed’s Jack (open at 17:30). So that day, we only tried Up in Smoke. It was a really nice place to have lunch with friends. Quite huge for a restaurant. We were so lucky that we could see the smoke gears because they have this open kitchen area. They alsoe have 2 semi-private area. Cool. On the right side, they have bar area for those who wanna have some drinks only.
Iced Tea 30k
Smoked Brisket Sandwich 110k
BBQ Sauce, Cabbage, Aioli
Since it’s specialized in a “smoke” dish, we tried this smoked brisket sandwich. I love the burger bun. Soft and tender. And the brisket was juicy with a great hint of smokey texture. The cabbage was in a perfect portion, not too much. And I couldn’t stop eating the potato crisp. Yum.
Smoked Chicken 120k
Baby Romaine, Alabama White Sauce, Herbs, Pickled Onions
Another “smoked” dish. It’s super duper good. I was happy when it came to my table. It’s beautiful in presentation with aromatic fragrant. I was literally drooling before I tried the dish. And when I finally tried the dish, I experienced chickgasm. LOL. Juicy and tender meat, with delightful taste from the sauce. OMG. I demanded another portion hahahaha.. Good thing that Aline never liked drumstick chicken hohoho.. *clap my hands*
Grilled Cheese 85k
Raclette, Dijon, Watercress
Banana Cream Pie 75k
Salted Caramel, Brown Butter Graham
Super love! Always love banana. Mixed it with salted caramel and brown butter. Super super delicious. The texture of the cream was astounding. Super moist, delicate and fluffy. Sexy combo between the banana and the salted caramel. It’s big portion, but we could finish our bowls without a blink. Recommended dessert to wrap-up our lovely lunch.
Thanks Up in Smoke and Mr Justin for our lovely complimentary late lunch. We’ll be back next week! Hooray!
