Yesterday i visit Benedict for lunch to celebrate my friend's birthday. The ambience is cozy although all of tables in the restaurant is fully occupied. We have tried several menu. Things that we have tried are : 1. Pork Chop (140k) My friends choose this one for her lunch and i had several bites of it. Their pork is well seasoned and there isn't any unpleasant smell that sometimes you can find in pork dishes. The pork meat itself is not tough, but not too tender also. It was in the middle between of tough and tender. Personally i'm not too fond of pork except of chinese style pork, but i could still enjoy this meal. 2. Bendict Burger (100k) I become fond of burger after tried burger at another restaurant in Grand indonesia. Since the ingredients is similar with that tasty burger, i decided to order this Benedict Burger. I choose medium well for the beef patty and i guess i make a wrong choice to order this menu. My friend who take a bite of the meat said that the taste of beef patty similar with meatball. In my opinion, the beef patty is kinda tasteless. The only taste which is very dominant is 'meaty' taste and there is a kind of smell from the meat which is hard for me to explain when i eat the beef patty and honestly i didn't like it. But the inside part of the bun has already baked and the bun is seasoned already when they served it to me. And their cheese make the bun taste better. I like it. 3. Cajun Roast Chicken (130k) The chicken meat was tender & well seasoned. In my opinion, the flavour of chickenw as rich & savoury. I also try the mac & cheese that served with the chicken and it was also tasty. 4. Taro Latte (35k) There are 5 variances of latte and actually i wanted to try the charcoal one. Turns out that it wasn't available yesterday, so i choose Taro Latte instead. The taste is combination of taro powder & fresh milk. Because i am fond of milk, i like this taro latte. Unfortunately the latte isn't beautiful in my opinion compared to latte that i ever try other cafes. But it still acceptable because visual appearance isn't really important unless you want to take a picture and post it on social media.

Had the Steak Frites Benedict (95k++), the grilled wagyu beef was a bit tough despite the waiter said it was in medium doneness but the taste was very good, the red wine jus was very oniony in a good way, the eggs were perfectly cooked & the truffle fries were also delicious. A very enjoyable dish overall. Waterfall Iced Espresso (50k++) was unique presentation-wise but taste-wise, it was so-so. It was an iced americano on rock with whipped cream on top & condensed milk on the side. The staffs were all nice. Despite sitting in a smoking section, it hadn't cigarette smell. The air conditioning was good. Verdict, it is a solid restaurant or cafe. Definitely will come back to try their cakes.

Love their Old-fashioned apple pie so much! A combination of savory, sweet, and sour flavor in this one dessert dish. The pie crust was perfect not too hard nor soft. And the apple fruits in between the layer of the pie's fillings were really refreshing. Must try!
