Spicy and hot
Neat place. Good Internet. Charging outlet at tables with reading lamp. Everybody very frendly. Indonesian food. But my God... the Panang bowl is sooooo spicy! Any way, I enjoyed the lunch very much.

Fusion diners, coffee, chia seeds juice
Beans and Bread is a new resto at the corner of Plaza Indonesia extension, near ShareTea. The diners from Madame Lily has salads, sandwich, donburi, pasta, chicken noodle, desserts, coffee, tea, fancy drinks, and chia seeds healthy juice. Price is a bit high. Tossed salad is super small compare to the picture in the menu, and disappointing, as the avocado slices are very few. And a hot boiled egg was placed on top of the green, made the salad tasted like half cooked veggies. French brioche with caramel syrup with banana, strawberry and rum flambe comes as two thin slices of bread toast, with cuts of fruits and syrup. Taste is not so great, and yet price tags is high. All these great ideas of dori sambal matah (Balinese cuts of shallots and chili), tuna pasta sambal matah, ovomaltine murtabak (indian pancake), French brioche, cronuts, sounds so exciting, but the execution doesn’t deliver and live up to expectation. Perhaps, they should take more risk to enhance the taste than to tone down the flavors.
