Foie Gras Chawanmushi

Foie Gras Chawanmushi by ENMARU Japanese Restaurant
I want to hugs Chef Tomie when I ate this chawanmushi. Because this is the best chawanmushi I ever had! I guess, 1 lil' glass that Enmaru served is never enough. It so blew me away. The texture is so soft so delicate and straight melt in my mouth. Not to forget the foie gras, they make it also so tender. Mixing between savory and sweet really a great start for tonight dining. You have to try it by yourself, so you know that I'm not just brag about this chawanmushi.

Assorted 5 Kinds of Sashimi by ENMARU Japanese Restaurant
This sashimi  consist of:

  •   Kinmedai (金目鯛) in Japanese means Golden Eyes Sea bream. The English name for it is splendid alfonsino.
  •   Ootoro is taken from the actual under-belly inside the tuna

Pannacota, Tiramisu and Orange Cake by GAIA Ristorante

Pannacota, Tiramisu and Orange Cake by GAIA Ristorante served in one plate. Really great  to end tonight dinner. From those 3 above, Pannacota suddenly become my favorite. Not because it melts in my mouth. But the texture is so smooth make me want it for more. Others also taste great. A smooth tiramisu, not too sweet and so great in my lickin'. Not too forget the fresh Orange cake. Taste mixed between souw and sweet. Great for ending.


Passion Fruit Ketel One Vodka
Before really ending the night, Altitude served us one of their alcohol drink. The presentation quite unique. Served in a copper kettle. I taste it for a sip. The taste is so surprising. Vodka mixed with passion fruit ended up with a freshening drink with not too kick vodka taste. It all well balance. 

I really had a great time having dinner in Altitude. Every restaurant have it's very owned signature dish and all really worth to try. Not just give us an experience to dine, but really spoiled us with a great view and a great food. I definitely will comeback here. Have a nice dinner with my hubby with a great view of Jakarta.
