BEANS & BREAD - Plaza Indonesia Thamrin Jakarta

Catch up with dear friends, we found the new place that just opened last month. Beans & Bread that located at 4th Floor of Plaza Indonesi, Jakarta. The place is quiet empty when we arrived.


Beans & Bread have chic and clean interior. With red and grey dominated the area. The big glasses also give the illusion that the room look more wide. Beans & Bread have a semi open kitchen where we can see it from the dining area. We seat in the long red sofa, in-front of the big mirror, that really convy to have a chit-chat.


Beans & Bread have varieties of selection menu. From Western to Asian. From sandwich, pasta and rice. They all look promising and tempting. So since its the new place, we decided to try different type of menus.


MANADO BOWL - IDR 75.000
Beef shank in spicy woku sauce and sautéed traditional papaya flowers
They nailed executed this Manado Bowl. The rice is well cooked. Beef shank, oh my... for you spicy lover, you'll gonna love this one. The chili is so kick, perfectly seasoned, ad really soak into the beef shank. The beef also tender. And for the side  sautéed traditional papaya flowers it also taste good. It's not bitter and well seasoned.


HERB CHICKEN RICE BOWL - IDR 65.000
Marinated boneless chicken grilled to perfection with sautéed vegetables and melted cheese
Rice topped with generous toppings like boneless chicken that well marinated. It so tender and juicy. It also grilled right so it not burnt. The owey gooey  melted cheese is so overload covered the sautéed vegetables. Eventhough the cheese are overload but it's not too cheesy and make us become overwhelmed. Well I guess, it become a perfect match with the herbs chicken.


NASI UDUK BETAWI BOWL - IDR 65.000
Betawi style coconut milk rice with fried chicken, “semur telor” and sweet & spicy “tempe ikan teri”
Nasi Uduk Betawi taste wise. I wish the rice is more fragrant and savory with a little more add of the coconut milk. So it can make the rice taste more rich. Sweet & Spicy Tempeh & Ikan Teri (anchovy) taste good. It still have a crunchy texture and seasoning. While the chicken is tasteless and too dry. The tofu stew quiet good. Not too thick like Betawi style but it have flavor in it.



MEXICAN DORY SANDWICH - IDR 75.000
Breaded dory served Mexican style with salsa, avocado, sour cream and crunchy tortilla on a toasted Cuban roll
From the presentation and appearance it look so promising and tempting. The portion is quiet big. With stack of breaded dory. But it turned out to be a so so sandwich. The dory a bit tasteless. Luckily it still has its texture. Crunchy on the outside and juicy in the inside.


ANGEL HAIR CREAMY FUNGHI - IDR 75.000
Angel hair pasta served with a creamy parmesan sauce and sautéed champignon mushrooms
Angel hair past is the slimmer and thinner version spaghetti. It cooked aldente and not soggy. I like the creaminess of the cheese. Its not overwhelmed but really taste rich. with the generous amount of mushroom make this pasta taste more delicious. In the end, I'm the who clear up the plate LOL.

Ice Cappuccino - IDR 45.000
At the end, Beans & Bread worth to visit to have lunch or dinner. The place, the service is great with decent taste of food. They also have many selection of coffee, blended drinks, milkshakes and juices. Well... guess you have to try on your own. Good Luck Beans & Bread!
