Today's not gonna be the usual international cuisine but something very close to heart. It's an Indonesian fine dining restaurant, plus rooftop! The name's Kila Kila and located right across Pacific Place!
Finding this place is super easy, even for me! From Sudirman, just go into SCBD area and you'll immediately see the signage of this place, since it's pretty eye-catching. The problem is you have to use the valet parking service, which will cost IDR 50K! If you don't want that, you can either park in Pacific Place or Electronic City and just walk a bit!
Kila Kila here is located inside a building and they're on the 7th floor, my favorite number! When you step out of the elevator, you can either choose left or right, though I don't really think there's any difference, just that you'd find a bar at the right side!
Be sure you make a reservation first! When I came here I got a table at 9 pm because the place is full booked! Yeap, they're that crowded plus there was a birthday party, so I'd recommend making a reservation at a day before or else you'll end up like me!
I do admit that the place is gorgeous! Fancy decoration that you can use for any occasion! Dinner with friends, family, or sweethearts, birthday celebration or even like a table beside ours, a bridal shower!
Though the 7th floor is not that high, you can still enjoy a bit of the city view! :')
Very Indonesian decoration with these clay jars that I just fell in love with! I bet it'll look amazing in daylight!
Got these Bakwan Jagung (2 pcs) IDR 25K and Tempe Mendoan (2pcs) IDR 20K for the snacks. Very Indonesian, right? Well, don't be surprised at the price, since it is fine dining!
Sorry but I gotta say that there's nothing really special about these dishes! I was putting high expectations but turns out, it tasted just like those you'd fine anywhere. Not saying it's bad but just predictable!
At least the dipping helps quite a lot!
AYAM ACEH IDR 70K
This one here surprised me because it's very average! Like any other fried chicken you find at your home. I think that even I could make better than this!
You could probably guess how it taste like without even trying it..yes, it's that predictable! Just imagine a super dry fried chicken!
BAKMIE GORENG JAWA IDR 55K
This one's the best out of all even though I bet that you could probably imagine how this taste like as well! Well at least they're generous with the chicken!
Coming here is literally to just enjoy home-cooked dishes!
LIDAH BAKAR CABE IJO IDR 115K
Another thing is that their portion is not that big but just enough. This one's pretty good, tender and doesn't have that bad tongue smell. Perfect with or without rice!
Time for desserts!!! Our favorite part! We got 2 desserts that are both superb!
First is this Marie Regal Gelato IDR 45K. You'll find bits of regal in this that the gelato became crunchy..lol! The base is actually chocolate, which made it all the better! The taste of this is unpredictable unlike their main courses, so it's a thumbs up from us!
Next is this Better Than Kiss IDR 50K! This is a recommend from the staff, plus the table next to us also got this and I can see why. Sweet brioche with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream, who could ever deny that?
It pretty simple actually..literally toast with caramel sauce and ice cream but it's good, so I'm not complaining!
Here's the bar area I told you about! I'm guessing this is a smoking room(?)
The thing that I like about this restaurant is the super fast service and that matters a lot! Though the food is pretty average but I guess I'm quite satisfied.
Thanks for reading! Love, Lulabyspoon! :3
