1) farmhouse sandwich
seared striploin on a bed of sauteéd mushroom and a creamy mustard top with melted mozzarella cheese, with vegetables in balsamic and olive oil dressing. quite good, not very good, the salmon tasted rather generic, but the french fries compensated the sandwich.
can't remember exactly what it was, but one thing for sure, it was meatless, as it should be, considering it was my vegetarian friend dara's choice. not the best creamy pasta, surely. but the portion was quite gigantic, the pasta was not bad, the cream was not bland, but for a cream pasta it kind of lacked some flavour. truth be told, i've never come across really good cream pasta in jakarta. my school's carbonara can effortlessly outdo any of them at the same price… (fact!) or am i just a sucker for extremely tasty, savoury cream sauce? (asian tongue, duh)
3) junkfood killer
wagyu beef with crispy onion and tomato hollandaise squeezed between two burger buns, my order and my favourite as it filled my stomach to its fullest! ok not only that certainly, the main thing was i liked how the flavour was kept at just the right balance, you could feel tomatoes in the sauce kicking unoverwhelmingly, blending delicately with the already flavourful patty…what a sublime, subtle outburst i had in my mouth! on the downside, i could not see what's so wagyu about the beef, but i did not mind, really. its taste exceeded my expectation, though you should keep in mind that the buns were a little too difficult to slice...so if you don't tolerate breads whose softness cannot match that of a piece of kitchen sponge, i suggest you to just, errr, discard them?
