Business Lunch at Lobo Restaurant The Ritz-Carlton Mega Kuningan Jakarta

August 30th, 2017. I was invited to Lobo Restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta. Evidently, now they have Business Lunch on weekdays.

Last year, Lobo Restaurant, The Ritz-Carton Jakarta, Mega Kuningan was very proud to welcome Chef Jan Schwittalla on board as the restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine. The Chef with Michelin-starred headed the culinary team of the Restaurant and Lounge which is located in the hotel’s lobby, where he crafts stand out French-inspired gastronomic creations to delight Jakarta’s most discerning gourmands.

“With the creativity and experience in a Michelin-starred restaurant, Chef Jan will set to elevate Lobo’s dining experience to new heights and of course bring back the love for Lobo among fine culinary lovers” said Rudolph Blattler, hotel’s Executive Chef. The German born Chef’s gastronomic journey has taken him to some of the most exquisite restaurants from Germany to his Michelin-starred restaurant in Bordeaux, France.

Well, they wanna show to people that Michelin Star dishes are very affordable. Yaaaay. So below I will share to you what the Business Lunch looked like. Hope you enjoy the simple review.

After I tried all of the menu, I had my favourite right away.
The bouillabaisse caught my heart all of a sudden with the flavour and the texture.
The black crab bisque was a little too salty for me. And I prefer more crab meat hahaha.
Well, everybody loved the black forest, but I prefer it to be sweeter LOL.
For the amuse bouche, pre-appetizer and pre-dessert, we all loved them.

Thank you so much Lobo, The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta and Chef Jan Schwittalla for the lovely business lunch. Fyi, the price for 2 courses 288k; price for 3 courses 388k. Don’t think too much, just go there for your business lunch with your colleagues.

Gerilya Coffee & Roastery at Cilandak Jakarta

June 30th, 2017. Still my 2 months ago review hahahaha. We stayed in Cilandak area, so we tried to visit places around the field. Then, I found this hidden gem. Gerilya Coffee & Roastery. It’s actually near the roadside of R.A. Kartini street. Very easy to find.

Gerilya is a coffee shop with roastery inside. They roast their own coffee on-site to ensure freshness of their product. But when you go to their 2nd level, you’ll find a more comfortable space. Bigger and cozier. And you won’t find walls with emptiness. They sure love to fill the walls with murals. Fyi, the stairs were very steep. For me, it’s quite scary hahahaha..

Ice Lemon Tea 35k

Latte 32k

I’m not a coffee expert. But I am very proud when a coffee shop served local coffee. Well, maybe since I watched movies about coffee, I realized that it’s not easy to produce a good coffee. And this was a good latte for me. Light body with no acidic flavour.

Brownie 38k

They served the chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream. It’s too much for us, so we had to take away the brownie. We had our breakfast before going to Gerilya hahaha.. Too bad huh? Well, the good thing, it’s still good in the afternoon when we ate the brownie for snacks. LOL.
