New Menu from Ismaya Catering Cafe

Yeeaahh I know this is a very late post regarding the new menu from Ismaya Catering. But lately I feel unwell & a lot of work need to be done at my office (can't avoid being an office slave I guess). But now... I don;t want to keep this precious and yummy new menu from Ismaya Catering any longer. So prepare your fork & start dig in with me.


Ismaya Catering located in Grand Indonesia 5th Floor. After several week ago I got a chance to tried new menus  from Kitchenette that still under 1 roof with Ismaya Catering, now it's time for me to find out new menu from Ismaya Catering.


Entering the restaurant area, we can't see the rustic modern  theme from Ismaya. The decoration dominated with wooden and vintage look. With open kitchen concept, the customer can peek the process behind the kitchen. To bad, Ismaya Catering did not separate between the smoking and the non-smoking area.

Ismaya Catring served menu from Eastern and Western. There are many varieties of menu that you can try. From small bites, main course until dessert. Not too forget with their fresh mocktail.


EASY BITES


Nachos with Beef Chili Con Carne - IDR 45.000
Nachos consist of corn tortilla that topped with beef chilli con carne, sliced jalapeno and red chilli. They served the beef generously. I like it little bit spicy, but the mozzarella cheese can balance all the heat. This nachos served with 3 kind of dipping sauce, salsa, guacamole and sour cream. From those 3 sauce, I like salsa sauce better. The guacamole & the sour cream less kick in taste.


Mexican Cheese Quesadilla - IDR 48.000
Filled with mushroom, paprika, onion, coriander leaf, with generous amount of cheese. Topped with sliced jalapeno and red chilli. This quesadilla is sooo addictive. I can eat all those quesadilla in a pan if I don't remember my friend hohoho... Vegetarian gonna love this. Because the filling all veggies. Except maybe for the cheese. Served with 3 kind of dipping just like the nachos above. And still it so good pairing with salsa sauce. I definitely will order this again in my next visit.

HEAVY BITES  


Nasi Goreng Kecombrang IDR 45.000
Fried Rice cooked with Torch Ginger Flower or as known as Kecombrang or Honje. See the Kecombrang flower remind me of my Grandma. She used to make me Rujak or Sayur Loder using Kecombrang. The smell is really unique and good. So when Ismaya served this Kecombrang fried rice, I'm so curious to taste it. But too bad for me, I guess it still for kick from the Kecombrang. Beside kecombrang, this fried rice also served with shredded chicken, red onion & lemongrass also the sunny side egg. The rice texture a bit mushy. If the rice a bit dry it could be more great. Just suggestion, to get more Indonesian look, I wish Ismaya could add some Chips (kerupuk) to this fried rice.


Soto Tangkar with Jasmine Rice IDR 45.000
Soto Tangkar is soup made from coconut milk consist of beef and tendon, sliced of tomato & potato, chives, celery and fried onion. Served with rice and emping (melinjo crackers). At first sip, I taste a bit salty, but then when I added some soy sauce, the taste become balance. The beef tender enough. The texture from the soup is not too thick. Better served hot.

SWEETS



Molten Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream IDR 40.000
Always exciting to see this cake. I expecting the very generous melted chocolate that come out from the chocolate cake. But, too bad, Ismaya made it too overcooked. So when we cut the cake, the chocolate not too melted. But the taste quite good. Not too sweet. Pairing with vanilla ice cream.


Singkong Belanda IDR 32.000
Aakk.. me like this Singkong Belanda. Very great combination of sweet and savory. A really tender boiled cassava poured with caramel sauce and shredded cheese. Better served while it's hot. So you can taste all the ingredients play in your mouth.

BEVERAGES
 

Virgin Apple Mojito IDR 35.000
This mocktail is really a perfect combination after eating the sweet dessert earlier. The freshness come from the combination of mint and apple. Great balance between sweet and sour.


Red Melon Berry Refresher IDR 35.000
This mocktail appearance is  so pretty. Red melon more dominated than the strawberry. Gave the fruity taste to this mocktail.

Beside those menu above, Ismaya still have several new menu that you can try. They are Takoyaki, Shrimp, Enoki, and Tofu Fried Basket for the Easy Bites - Balinese Satay Lilit with Jasmine Rice, Nasi Bakar,
Double Trouble Spaghetti for the Heavy Bites. Hhhmmm... curious already. Tell me what it taste if you taste them before me okayy *wink


Overall, really had a great time to had a chance to taste Ismaya's new menu. The Indonesian menu really something worth to try. Let's Come & try'em by yourself.  Thanks a billion Ismaya Catering for having me & friends that night. Hope to see you soon.
