It's been a few months from my last post and I am sorry for that. My life has been so busy working at this new place and writing a blog was not in my mind lately. After few months of adapting, I am free to have some spare time and gonna catch up several new things in town.
So today I am gonna write about this new place called the garden. Based on its name, they really highlight those pretty things and put those flowers in every corner in the room. To my knowledge The Garden is one of the prettiest vibe I know in town. One step inside, it's like entering a whole new world. The Garden is located in Pantai Indah Kapuk, but all the ambiance they offer, it feels like having a really good time somewhere else.
Pretty bar with tropical touch
You could see that everything is on point. The menu was so pretty and cute. The variety of the food itself was quite wide, with symbol of flowers to show their recommendation. They also have some selections of cocktails and desserts, which could make them a nice hang out place at night.
To be honest, I was a bit skeptical when I was going to try their food. As we know that some of those pretty places was not accompanied with good food. I've heard some good reviews about them, and I hope they do not disappoint.
Bad Ass Fried Rice-IDR 90k
The title made it clear, they should be a bad ass one. The first thing on my mind was the size was quite small, I could really have it by myself. The fried rice was accompanied with onsen egg (which came like a regular egg) and well done wagyu. It was quite good, but nothing kicked my palate. The fried rice was spicy, which was actually good, but it's nothing more than a regular fried rice. The meat was just alright.
Sunshine Caramelized Pork-IDR 100k
Now this, was on of my favorite. Melt-in-your-mouth-pork, cooked with caramel to make it sweet and a hint of sour. The pork was so good and makes me drool right now. Again, the only thing was about the portion size.
The Wonder Duck Crispy Kecombrang-IDR 220k
This one also one of the highlight. The rice was so fragrant and so tasty when you mixed it with their sambal. I could not stop to dig in this full of carbohydrate meal. The duck was just fine, but I found it was too dry in some parts. Consistency with the duck could make this one awesome! Honestly, this one was the only meal that made us quite full.
Creamy Chicken Truffle Dumpling-IDR 75k
This was my personal favorite. A 4 pieces of chicken dumpling, covered with fragrant creamy sauce. The Truffle was on point and the meat was tasty. However it was so small and I felt like one portion was not enough. The creamy sauce was the winner tho.
Now let's jump to their dessert!
I tried Oops I Dropped My Ice Cream-IDR 55k, which was actually an upside down coconut ice cream with crumbles and yuzu. The crumbles and yuzu was so good, while I could not really taste the coconut. She's Slice of Heaven-IDR60k, also came in such a pretty presentation. It was mille crepe that came with 3 choices of sauces, taro, milk tea, and milo. I wanted to try different flavor so taro it is. The cake was so good and creamy, and the taro sauce was also delicate.
Overall The Garden is one pretty cafe with wide selections of food. The portion itself was not big, a size to try a little bit of this and that. The price was quite vary and little bit on the higher side. However the place is so pretty, and a good one to spend with your girlfriends (or boyfriend). Don't forget to snap some pictures here!
