MG IND.USTRIE at Street Gallery Pondok Indah Jakarta

May 14th, 2017. I had an event at Pondok Indah. After we wanted to go home after the event, we walked pass a coffee shop. I remember I was there once, long time ago. And the name was different back then. Now its called MG IND.USTRIE. Turned out, Morning Glory Coffee collaborated with IND.USTRIE, and became MG IND.USTRIE. Cool.

We loved the place. It’s comfortable with enjoyable atmosphere. At first I wanted to visit the place the next time we go to Pondok Indah Mall, but hubby said, “Why not now? It’s in front of us.” So yeah, we stopped by for a little while.

Amypond Cafe Street Gallery Pondok Indah Mall Jakarta

December 24th, 2016. The afternoon before Christmas Eve. We were on our way to staycation near Pondok Indah area. Yet, we were so hungry that we decided to drop in Pondok Indah Mall. We walked along the street gallery to find something to eat. And then I saw this place. I never heard of this one, so I googled the place and found out that it was new. So we opted to visit this one. Amypond Cafe.

Located on the Street Gallery’s bridge to the mall, it’s very easy to find. Just the opposite of Starbucks. It was nuanced in blue and white. A simple colours with calm and modest atmosphere. On the left side was the non-smoking area with coffee bar. On the right side was the smoking area with the kitchen.

Iced Lychee Tea 35k

Delicious, as always. 🙂

Red Velvet Latte 40k

Nice red velvet latte for accompanying my lunch time. Not too creamy and not too sweet. Just perfect.

Nasi Goreng Kebuli 62k

At first, hubby wanted to order pasta. We were afraid the kebuli fried rice was spicy. But then, the chef told us that it could come with no spicy. So we ordered this one. And it was one nice fried rice. Generous meat with flavourful rice. One recommended dish.

Chicken Cordon Bleu 60k

Smoked Beef and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast, Parmesan Cream Sauce, Mashed Potato

When it came to our table, we were stunned. The presentation was amazingly cute. Shaped like a sphere, on top of mashed potato, covered with parmesan cream sauce. Such an appetizing dish. The smoked beef was tender, and the chicken breast was tasty. My favourite was the mashed potato. Well-seasoned with fluffy texture. Super recommended!

Hatchi at Pondok Indah Plaza 2 Jakarta

November 2nd, 2016. I had lunch with my bestie, Hans from @eatandtreats at the newly opened restaurant and bar that focuses on Asian cuisines; providing noodle bar, fusion tapas, sake, & cocktails. They serve varieties of noodles, rice bowl dishes, and Asian tapas as their main products of food. They also serve vast selections of Asian beers, liquors, and whiskey. Hatchi.

Located at Pondok Indah Plaza 2, Hatchi is easy to find. It’s not far from the road, and the building is quite eye-catching with industrial looks. They have indoor and outdoor area. The indoor is not very big but comfortable enough to have lunch with your best friends. Nice Japanese ambiance all around the place. They have open kitchen so we can see their activities. Dim lightings and black marble tables made the environment feels so homey. The outdoor area is small too but they have this stone tables, which made my heart soaring, because it’s a good news for my photos hahaha.. Always happy to see beautiful tables. 🙂

NOODLE

MYO (Make Your Own)

We’re giving you the freedom to choose and create your own preference of noodle dish just by following these 4 simple steps. A fun fact? There will be up to 72 possibilities out of this section.

Choose your noodle: Ramen 9k or Lamian 9k? We choose ramen.
Choose your broth: Umami 15k or Tonkotsu 20k? We choose tonkotsu.
Choose your protein: Chicken 15k or Beef 25k or Pork 20k? We choose pork.
Choose your condiments: Corn 6k or Mushroom 6k or Tamago 6k or Nori 6k or Tofu 6k or Cheese 8k? We choose mushroom, tamago and nori.

Voila! Love the combination. The texture of the ramen was perfect for my palate. Though for Hans, it’s too gooey. But, I loved it hahaha. And it’s so tasty, I finished it instead of just tasting it. Rich tonkotsu mixed with tender and juicy pork, served in a bowl with chopstick holder hole. Even the bowl was beautiful!!

Salted Egg Hokkian 60k

Sous-vide Chicken Leg, Goma, Scallion and Salted Egg Cream.

It’s delicious, although we couldn’t taste the salted egg. But Hans really liked it. It’s his favourite, I guess. Well, they should change the name or they could add the salted egg cream a little bit more. LOL. They were very generous with the chicken leg. It’s big and plentiful. 🙂

RICE BOWL

As Asia’s No. 1 source of carbs, it’s been in our culture for as long as we know, inspiring us that the most practical and delightful was is bey serving it in our bowl topped with our favourite proteins and vegetables.

Roa Bowl 65k

Fried Rice, Salmon Tataki, Tuna Tataki, Scallion and House-Made Sambal Roa.

I only ate a spoonfull. Sorry. Too spicy. It’s so tasty but again, too spicy!!! Hans told me about it, and I still tried it. And yes, it burned my tongue. No more. Sorry.

IMG_9307 IMG_9308

TAPAS

Originally started decades ago in a small plate to share with a drink or two. It inspired us to make a section of light bites to be paired with our sake and cocktails.

Gyoza

House-made Pan-fried Dumplings
Cheese 49k / Chicken 39k / Beef 50k / Pork 45k / Mixed 75k

I chose the Mixed Gyoza. Hans just agreed with me. I think he didn’t really hear me, he just nodded hahaha.. I love all the gyoza. The cheese, the chicken, the beef, the pork. All of them. The texture of the dumpling was brilliant. Moist and crispy.

IMG_9306

Roupi 35k

Deep-fried Pork Skin

Very crispy. Perfect texture. Too bad. Yes, I said too bad. When we put the pork skin in our mouth *our own mouth, not each other!! hahahaha* we tasted nothing. It’s just crispy and that’s it. We told the server and he asked the kitchen. After he came back, he told us that we have to dip in the sauce before eat the pork skin. Actually, I prefer to eat the pork skin as a snack. Not to bother about dipping it in some kind of sauce. We told him about it, and he said thank you for our concerns. 🙂

BAO

Inspired from the Chinese culture, taking it as one of their daily meal. Here we offer a selection of our house-made steamed bunds filled with your preference of protein and condiments.

Gyutan 55k

Grilled sous-vide cow tongue, pickled red radish, lettuce, apple, hoisin and goma mayo

I wanted to try another meat. So, instead of pork, I asked for gyutan. The bao was okay, the gyutan was delicious, I just didn’t like the sauce. It’s too weird for me LOL. I cannot describe the taste. It’s just weird for my palate. *sorry Chef*

Hoisin sauce is a thick, pungent sauce commonly used in Chinese cuisine as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir fries, or as dipping sauce. It is darkly colored in appearance and sweet and salty in taste.

DESSERT

End your meal with sweetness to leave with a cleansed palate and a happy soul.

Matcha Tiramisu 45k

OMG! This was one of the best desserts! The matcha was sweet, and the tiramisu’s flavour was very strong. Soft and fluffy texture. Oh my, I’m in love with this matcha tiramisu. And they said to me, it’s their best seller. They always ran out of it. Everybody loves it.

IMG_9321

Ketan Nutella Smores 35k

I prefer more nutella flavour in this dessert. The smores were sweet and deliciously chewy. I didn’t really like the sticky rice. So, it’s not my favourite. I still craving for the Matcha Tiramisu. LOL.
