Yeay! Finally, a new spot in Senayan area or more specifically, at Hang Tuah road. Well, it's sort of new and located across of Traffique Coffee, so if you're coming from Senayan City, if Traffique Coffee is on your left, then La Madame here is on the right! And yeah, it's called La Madame Resto & Lounge (I know I said that already)!
La Madame is not only a restaurant but also a salon and boutique! The salon is located on the upper floor but when I came here, the stairs was still on process. In the front of the shop there's a cake shop, where they mostly sell Indonesian cakes! The perfect souvenir shop, huh?
I really love the interior, like super obsessed! I'm weak to white and clean designs, plus there's natural light everywhere! It's a dreamland for me and perfect for a photo shoot!
See how lovely the place is with it's elegant style? You just can't not fall in love with it! Notice how I used a double negative? Lol!
Just looking at the place gave me an idea that La Madame is a fine dining restaurant! When we came here, most of the customers weren't our age nor were they businessmen, they're 'aunties on a social gathering' (read: ibu-ibu arisan) and they all looked like a wealthy bunch of people!
The foods they offer is not exactly Western nor Chinese, it's Peranakan cuisine, which the result of blending Chinese ingredients with various distinct spices and cooking techniques used by the Indonesian community, like fried rice, rujak, pastel, mie ayam, nasi campur and so on!
RAZZ IDR 68,7K
Raspberry, mint, lemoned.
I know it's overpriced but it's because this is a mocktail in a fine dining restaurant, so I guess it's to be expected. Good thing it's perfect for the warm afternoon, since it's very refreshing, not too sweet nor sour, just a whole lot of fresh!
NASI CAMPUR PERANAKAN IDR 78,7K
White rice served with braised chicken in spicy coconut sauce, spicy assorted giblets and shrimp sauce, tauco sauced tofu, teri medan, fried fresh chili.
This is the type of foods they offer, it's what Peranakan food is! Most Indonesian would find this lovely and it does taste good. Though looking at the price, I don't think many would want to spend that much for these kind of food, since you can find this even in the market with lower than half the price!
There's nothing really special about this dish. Just that it's good quality and you're eating in a beautiful restaurant, I guess that's what made it expensive!
And by the way, don't worry about those red looking chili everywhere! This ain't spicy at all, trust me, I'm no good with spicy foods as well!
NASI GORENG OPA IDR 58,7K
Fried rice, corned beef, leek, fried egg, fried chicken, brined cucumber and Indonesian chips.
This smelt super good upon served to our table!! I'm guessing it's because they cooked the rice with the corned beef, though the price is still a bit overpriced for me but at least it's delicious! Let's forget about the price for a while and enjoy! Yum!
The chicken's also specially seasoned to perfection! Just one problem, don't know why but it's way too tough! Such a shame, since it tasted amazing!
CHICKEN RICE LA MADAME IDR 97,7K
Hainan rice, chicken, fragrant spiced pork, sweet soy egg, roasted pork.
This is me and my friend's favorite and also the most expensive..lol! Still, it's super good, so let's overlook it! Sorry to say that it's non-halal though, since there's some delicious pork there! Like any chicken rice, you'll get the soup as well and the hainan rice smelt amazing. The side dishes were just average but since there're pork, I'm totally bought! :p
Just can't get enough of the interior, so I'm gonna give you more to enjoy!
The flooring is exceptionally pretty and makes you feel like living in a castle!
Okay, I'm done feeling like a princess..lol! I'd definitely suggest this place if anyone is asking for a beautiful place but I won't if they're focusing on the foods! What do you guys think? Sacrificing some extra money to dine in a palace, would you do it?
