MOJO

After a long post at Bali, lets head back on to Jakarta. And yes again, this post will be linked automatically to JKTGO’s blog – where I’m also serving as one of the content writers there. So be sure to pay it a visit. Especially if you’re a first time in Jakarta. Lots, and I mean lots! of places to go visit. So here’s my next post about Mojo at Senopati. I stopped by this place about a year ago when it first opened and I can still taste the vivid flavours of its dish – I remember I had churros & grilled chicken – you can see HERE on my old post.

This time, they had me and several great food bloggers in the city on a special preview of their next menu. And it was fantastic! The team at Mojo really brings the true flavour out from every dish – without making excessive presentation. What I can tell you is that I’ll definitely come for more and you all should too. So lets grab a look shall we? We started off with samplers (which is quite big – so YEAY!) Mojo Senopati JakartaFrom the three new appetisers: Classic Lengua Taco (Pico De Gallo, Guacamole, Jalapeño Relish, Taco Sauce & Chipotle Aioli). This is my favourite appetisers where the the Beef Tongue (Lengua) is cooked perfectly that doesn’t leave any strong after taste and blends perfectly with the overall condiments. Mojo Senopati Jakarta Mojo Senopati Jakarta

The other two dish are the Sweet Temptation & Korean Wings – chicken wings glazed in soy and honey, and the other half with gozuchang glazed, and added with a sprinkle of scallions. Perfect beer companion guys! And don’t forget about the nachos! Its definitely my favourite nachos I’ve tried I love on how the condiments, are mixed perfectly into the bowl. No more plain nachos!Mojo Senopati Jakarta Mojo Senopati JakartaHeading up to the main course we have Chipotle – Pears Braised Short Ribs, 180Gr Braised Beef short ribs served with olive-tomato rice, creamed corn and a special MOJO Verde.Mojo Senopati Jakarta Mojo Senopati Jakarta

Mojo Fish & Chips – a tasty breaded john Dory, pineapple coriander salsa with a strawberry jalapeño cream sauce, and not to be forgotten – fries! Mojo Senopati Jakarta Mojo Senopati JakartaFor you who wants something more different, taste the unique – Fried Chicken & Waffle. It’s served with maple butter syrup. Mojo Senopati JakartaThere’s also a Chipotle Glazed Herb Chicken, Beef Tongue Fried Rice, and last but not the least, the Pork Belly Confit Burrito Bowl – seriously, what else can you ask for?!Mojo Senopati Jakarta Mojo Senopati Jakarta Mojo Senopati Jakarta

Don’t forget the dessert which I officially recommend: these are definitely one of the tastiest desserts I’ve had in the city! They are: Waffle with Red Velvet Ice Cream and also my personal personal favourite: Peanut Butter Cheesecake. It’s based with an incredible thick crunch, and NO! Those are not whip cream – that is pure peanut butter cream. Mojo Senopati Jakarta Mojo Senopati JakartaMojo Senopati JakartaOh dear, I just droll again as I’m writing. Anyways, go visit them – and I’m definitely sure you’ll go nuts. Have fun and thanks again Rizky and the overall MOJO team for having us.

IMMIGRANT DINING ROOM

So I decided to postponed my Mulia Bali findings – and decided to post what the newest Plaza Indonesia’s hit. So Immigrant has been closed for a major renovation – and on the 9th of April it started its soft opening. So, since it’s a holiday, I decided to take a quick lunch with my baby bro. Immigrant Dining Room JakartaImmigrant Dining Room JakartaIt was quiet a stunning renovation where the place has been shifted completely – it takes a more casual approach –where it rebrands itself with the name, dining Room. The club will be placed at the back of the restaurant – it hasn’t opened yet – but the PR, Kesih and Monty said it will open probably after Lebaran.

With big spacious windows, the place is a very relaxing place to go on a mid-day for some daylight. Plus, its comfortable. There’s not many menu available yet – but at least they have the basic: steak, pastas, chicken and dessert.Immigrant Dining Room JakartaImmigrant Dining Room JakartaImmigrant Dining Room JakartaI had the Gnocchi Con Piccione – a potato gnocchi with Italian – corn fed pigeon stew served with black truffle & parmesan shavings. Yes, it’s pigeon – I thought it was beef considering the thick texture. But, alas it’s a nice surprise. I was hoping to get a chunkier gnocchi – but the sauce is great.

This is one of the strongest mojitos I’ve tasted. Immigrant Dining Room JakartaImmigrant Dining Room JakartaMy favourite is still at Potato Head Garage – but this one is sure stronger! My brother ordered the Fish N’Chips – it’s cooked perfectly and my brother said it’s quiet usual. Immigrant Dining Room JakartaKesih & Monty comped us with a great dessert – The Melting Chocolate and also some drinks (thank you so much for a great service) – the service is very fast here, and very friendly. I’m guessing it’ll be a quiet a full house for the net week – so be sure to book your place in advance.Immigrant Dining Room JakartaImmigrant Dining Room Jakarta
