Sooo sorry about the late posting but here it is! The first post of the month! Yay! We were invited last month to a restaurant at Pantai Indah Kapuk, which you might be familiar with, it's Carnivor. They're offering a new breakfast menu which is available only on Tuesday - Sunday at 07:30 am - 11:00 am. Why not at Mondays? Maybe cause they also doesn't like to wake up early for Mondays. Lol! Most of the breakfast menus consist of eggs and my favorite, pork! So now you can satisfy your cravings earlier! I'm personally not a morning person, so I might probably take my breakfast half an hour before 11 if I ever decided to grab some breakfast here.
Anyway, Carnivor is not really new and they specialize on meats and bbq ribs actually, which is a bit different than this breakfast menu that they're making but trust me, this breakfast menu is outstanding!
Again, I apologize for not taking photos of their interior for some reason.
SHAKSHOUKA IDR 68K
Sizzling pan of homemade tomato, onion, studded with sausage, ham, crowned with two eggs, toasted bread & mesclun salad.
Okay, I don't usually like tomato...but THIS was so delicious that I forgot all about it! The amazing dished completed with generous amount of diced sausages and hams, topped with two beautiful sunny side ups, served with warm and crispy toast and salad, it's a breakfast to die for!! I love how they described this dish with 'crowned with two eggs' cause it really was like a King of breakfast!
Option of white toast or yeast toast top with tomato or cream sauce with melted mozzarella cheese
Meat Lover (55K)
Bacon And Egg (48K)
Mix Cheese (48K)
A Croque Monsieur is often used as a trusty dish when it comes to breakfasts. It's a really simple dish, which is perfect to start a day with! The Croque Monsieur here comes with 4 options for their toppings and with different prices as well. 2 of the options has pork in it; meat lover & bacon and egg. The one I tried was the bacon and egg, the one that contains pork (of course!), might I say that this was not the most photogenic dish but the taste really turned the table around! I especially love their melted mozzarella! Yum!!
SPANISH HASH IDR 65K
Poached egg, holladaise sauce, diced potato, sausage bratwurst, pork ham, and toasted bread.
This is my second favorite after the Shakshouka! The ingredients was also kind of similar but with different processing AND without the tomato!! Yay! One more crucial thing, this dish contains my favorite, pork! The whole dish was also drizzled with creamy Hollandaise sauce that will make you crave for more!! Perfect!
Let's take a closer look to this heavenly meal!
Streaky Bacon (49K)
Smoked Ham (45K)
Another popular breakfast meal is an Egg Benedict, you can almost find this in most breakfast menus! Who could resist those creamy egg yolks mixed together with their beautiful Hollandaise sauce?? I just love some Egg Benedict, especially if their poached eggs are made perfectly! Anyway, for this menu, they also has a few option for the proteins. This one's the streaky bacon, so they'd still have the mushrooms and eggs but with different meat toppings, you can also choose ham or salmon. All of them sounds appetizing!
The photo below is the Salmon one and the amount of salmon was really generous! The taste can be a bit overwhelming but it's too good that you just can't stop munching them down!
CARNIVOR BIG BREAKFAST IDR 69K
2 eggs to your liking, baked beans, streaky pork bacon, sausage bratwurst, sauteed mushroom, and white toast.
A complete set of breakfast that has every nutrients you need to start your day's activities! If you're in need of something simple, filling, and delicious, this might be your cup of tea! What more could you need?
PUFF PASTRY SANDWICH
Let's continue on to something a bit more fancy! Well, I just said it's fancy because they use puff pastry as the buns. The surprising thing is that this was not on the menu and it came to our table like a bonus! Unfortunately, I didn't get to try this one, but inside it was the typical eggs, ham, and Hollandaise sauce, which is what most of the dishes here are all about! It looked amazing though and I bet the puff pastry was delightfully crispy and moist in the same time! Must've been yummy!
This was like small pieces of hash brown!
AVOCADO AFFOGATO IDR 21K
To satisfy the sweet tooth, we'll start of with this Affogato! There's the avocado one and also a tiramisu one. I chose the avocado one but it tasted kinda weird. The chocolate sprinkle you see on the ice cream, I don't really know what it was but it kinda tasted like brewed tea leaves. Other than that it tasted okay, just can't take that disturbing sprinkles!
When it comes to something sweet for breakfast, waffle is never left out of the options! Waking up to the smell of cooking waffles is always my type of morning! I chose this universally loved chocolate topping out of all other toppings you can choose from. Out of all the desserts here, this was my favorite! It's simple but packs a punch! The warm crispy waffle with chocolate syrup and a little bit of cheese on top, mixed with a delicious chocolate ice cream!! Heaven!
THE CARNIVOR APPLE CRUMBLE IDR 35K
A nice caramelized apple with crumbles and vanilla ice cream. The apples was a bit undercooked though, since I like it better if the warm apple were soft and mushy to get that perfect mix of texture when you eat it with the crumbles and ice cream. Can you imagine the party that'll happen in your mouth?
BREAD PUDDING IDR 32K
Warm oven baked bread with raisin served with a scoop of ice cream.
This is the highlight of today's dessert! Slices of Baguette soaked with condensed milk, so it's super sweet and soggy. Better eaten while still warm and add some ice cream to have that crashed temperature that'll just explode beautifully in your mouth! I'm even craving for this as I'm writing it!!
By the way, they now uses iPad for the menu! Don't you just love how technology is improving nowadays? Carnivor has few outlets, like at Sunter and Kelapa Gading, most located in North Jakarta. Well, I do hope they consider West Jakarta as their next branch! :P Thank you Mr. Adriantomo and Mr. Ridwan as the managing director from Carnivor PIK for the great food and experience!
