E&O (Eastern & Oriental) Restaurant - JAKARTA

Just a times ago, I had a very great lunch with friends. I've been heard about a positive thought about E&O since it opened last year. Most of my friends said that this is the restaurant that should in on my must visit list. So, I'm excited when got a chance to visit here.


E&O is owned by the great Chef Will Meyrick who also owned Mamasan, Sarong and Hujan Locale at Bali. E&O is the short of Eastern & Oriental, is under the Loewy and Union Group served the Asian Cuisine. Specially in Indonesia, Thai and Vietnamese Cuisine.


 I'm so amaze entering the E&O restaurant. It look so classy, elegant and beautiful. When entering to the restaurant area, you will find the attractive Bar with many selection of beverages. The using of wooden interior and dim light make the restaurant ambiance so romantic. Specially when at night, you probably only can see the person in-front of you. And they also have semi-private area in-front of their open kitchen.



HANOI CRISPY SPRING ROLLS - IDR 40.000
with Fresh Herbs and Nuoc Cham Dressing
Loved the crispy of the skin and the softness and the full loaded of the filling. The herbs is so fragrant. Served with Nuoc Cham Dressing for dipping sauce that made based on fish sauce. The taste is tart, fresh and a bit spicy. Great paired with the spring rolls.


‘LÁ LÕT’ VIETNAMESE GRILLED MINCED PORK BELLY - IDR 70.000 NON HALAL
Wrapped in Betel Leaves with Nuoc Cham  


SEARED SALMON SALAD - IDR 90.000
with Watermelon, Ginger, Lime Leaves, Cucumber, Thai Basil, Mint, Roasted Chilli and Shallot Dressing
Super Love with the salad. It has so many component and texture in one plate but keep taste light. This can be my summer salad. With the freshness from the watermelon and mint. The seared salmon is so fresh and still juicy. The dressing soak well into the salmon, and it so damn good!


SINGAPOREAN CHANNI CHICKEN - IDR 120.000
Chicken Simmered in a Light Southern Indian Curry with Turmeric, Cumin, Coriander Yoghurt and Fresh Coriander
I never thought that Curry (specially Indian) could be this light. The coriander is so fragrant. Not to thick like the usual curry. But its enough to marinated the chicken. The chicken also really tender. It's a good pairing with the flaky and buttery Channi Bread.                                                                                  


BALINESE "PEPES" (BARRAMUNDI WRAPPED IN BANANA LEAF) - IDR 150.000
with Sambal Matah, Shimeji Mushroom, Green Tomatoes and Lemon Basil
I'm so amazed when I knew that many traditional Indonesian food that served in E&O. Never cross in my mind that I eat Pepes in a find dining. Usually I ate Pepes at a Sundanese restaurant or my Mom's kitchen. Barramundi Pepes that E&O made was nailed! The fish is really tender, delicate and the green tomato and lemon basil that topped the fish really soak well in to the fish. Served with Boiled Vegetables, Fried peanuts and chilli Sauce. Also served with 2 of Sambal. Sambal Matah and Sweet and Spicy Soy Bean Sauce. This is my 2nd favorite dish that day. 


RENDANG (SLOW BRAISED BEEF CHEEK) - IDR 160.000
Simmered in Turmeric Leaves, Coconut Milk, Sumatran Spices and Chilli
Not like Padangnese typical Rendang that usually have the thick, bold and spicy, this rendang taste a bit light. The chilli with coconut milk is not too thick. But it succeed marinated the beef cheek. It tender and the chilli coconut milk coated the beef cheek perfectly.


THAI STYLE DENDENG BALADO - IDR 185.000
Caramelize Beef Short Ribs with Kaffir Lime, Red Chilli, Coriander Seed and Lemon Basil
Hail to this Dendeng balado. I even can eat it the whole plate. Sweet and slightly spicy covered all over the meat. Dendeng that usually thin and need a little effort to bite. But E&O cut it in the regular size. Doesn't matter. The taste still amazing though. RECOMMENDED!


E&O TAHU TEK - IDR 60.000
Egg and Tofu Salad with Potatoes, Rice Cakes, Bean Sprouts, Asian Celery, Petis Peanut Sauce
Eating this Tahu Tek, I always remember that my mom usually made this one. The earthy Javanese simple food with a million taste. Fried tofu, potatoes and omelet egg. Topped with boiled bean sprouts and Asian Celery. But I like if the peanut sauce taste a bit more bold.  


CHOCOLATE FONDANT  - IDR 65.000
with Homemade Sweet Condense Milk and Pandan Ice Cream (15 minute served)
Like a beautiful rocky mountain when this Chocolate Fondant served. With the fluffy and chocolate fondant cake with (not so) melted chocolate as the mountain, the Pandan Ice cream that so soft as the trees and the sweet condense milk sauce as the river. Lovely! 


COCONUT BRÛLÉE - IDR 65.000
with Rum Raisin, Young Coconut and Roasted Almond
Coconut Brule is more like Klapertaart, Manadonese desert cake that I adore so damn much. Served warm with not so sweet taste, is really good. The coconut still have the crunchy texture, milky but not too overpowering. Love this hearty warm Coconut Brule.



DURIAN PANNA COTTA - IDR 55.000
with White Sticky Rice
Durian is iconic tropical fruit that have an intimidate look with great taste. Some of peoples don't like Durian for its mushy texture and strong smell. But E&O execute this Durian so damn well. The softness of the sticky rice, it cooked perfectly, not too mushy or hard, the panna cotta not too milky. The sweetness from this Durian Panna Cotta is just right. The Panna Cotta melted in my mouth right away. I DIE!! Never miss this Durian Panna Cotta if you go to E&O. Insanely yummy.




At the end, I had a happy tummy lunch here. The food was amazing. E&O succeed captured the traditional food not quite far from the original taste. We have to keep this heritage alive. Couldn't be proud to be an Asian, that have many unique food with many unique spice and herbs. Beside the restaurant ambiance and the service support all the goodness. This is surely my one of the best restaurant.
