Yet another one that is close to home! Since Lippo Mall Puri has opened, there's been quite a few interesting new restaurants opening, so I'm super happy!
This place is called EQ..yes, it's that short. Don't really know what it stands for though, sorry! It's not particularly new but I've always been suspicious of this, since they're a Western-Korean-Indonesian eatery. Talk about specific..lol!
Then one day, we decided to just give it a try! The place is somewhat elegant and rustic, there's also a hint of oldies here and there, from the black and white photos to the super huge disc!
Staying to their 'Western-Korean-Indonesian' theme, they didn't forget to decorate the place with all of those 3! When we came here the place is almost like a ghost town though, there's no other customer but us, so we didn't expect much. Let's see how the foods are, shall we?
OREO MILKSHAKE IDR 30K
It's an Oreo milkshake...what could possibly go wrong? Lol! This is seriously good though, they're definitely not cheap about the Oreo, though the whipped cream does make you feel much guiltier! :')
BULGOGI (2 PAX) IDR 150K
Australian beef and mushroom marinated in EQ's special soy sauce, boiled to cook.
So this is a menu for two and it also comes with 2 plates of rice, though I think the amount of bulgogi is just way too small for 2! At least it tasted good, if only they'd be more generous with the portion, this will seriously sell!
SEAFOOD ISLAND IDR 50K
Sauteed seafood with pesto sauce served with french toast.
Okay, seriously! What is wrong with all the portions here? Are they trying to make a fine dining restaurant? I guess they're qualified but they definitely chose the wrong place to open, since the target market just doesn't fit! I do admit that this tasted great though, just way too overpriced for a restaurant in the area!
PAN-FRIED SALMON IDR 120K
With whipped pomme and lemon cream sauce.
Finally, something with normal portion! Still way too overpriced though! Tasted good but I didn't even realized there's a whipped pomme, which is apple, here. I guess it's those mashed below the salmon, yet I seriously thought it was mashed potatoes!
Am I gonna come back? Maybe..if I am ever stuck at Lippo Mall Puri and craving for fine dining but on normal circumstances? No way..lol! It's no wonder the place is a ghost town!
