Okay, so this is our 2nd review about Gia here, since the last time we went here was in 2015. How time flies, huh? Looking back at our last post about this, we realized how far we've come and improved! Can you see the different styles and angles? Lol! We do hope that we'd keep improving for the better and please do keep on supporting us! We appreciate each and every one of you! :D
So why doing another review on this? Well, cause there're some changes made here! Like not only their menus but also the fact that I can now take as many photos of the place as much as I want, since it was banned before! Yeap, though the interior didn't change, I can now show you in full preview now!
Won't say much about the place, since we've done it before. Guess we'll focus more on the foods now, shall we?
Oh and by the way, here's the VIP room on the 2nd floor, which I have also just found out recently! So the 2nd floor is literally just for the VIP room that can add up to 20 people, with a minimum spending of course!
SAN DANIELE, MOZZARELLA E CILIEGINO
Such an Italian salad! Below those greens are san daniele hams and those white clumps are mozzarella bocconcini. It's very light and perfect as an appetizer!
The ham is definitely the star of this dish for me! Just a little bit salty to keep everything light. Oh by the way, this is only available at lunch time!
ZUCCHINE E GRANCHIO
Using baby zucchini as the main ingredient with jumbo crab at the bottom. The crab is very thick and in a generous amount, though I won't be sharing this with anybody! :P
GUAZZETTO DI PESCE, GAMBERI, SALVIA, VINO BIANCO
This is actually the highlight of the new menus! Barramundi fish with pink prawn and white wine. The soup kinda taste like tomato, so it was okay-ish. At least the fish is fresh!
LINGUINE VONGOLE E MOLLICA
This also uses white wine, classy! The brown crumbs there is not nuts, which I thought at first, but spicy bread crumbs. Anyways, notice how today's dishes are coincidentally all seafood. I personally think this one kinda still have that seafood smell, maybe from the clams, though faint but still noticeable!
CREMOSO AL BURRO DI ARACHIDI
I don't care what the name means, all I know is that this is AMAZING!! Peanut butter pudding with honeycomb and salted caramel sauce, a super combo! Though the salted caramel is kinda overpowered by the peanut butter but who'd say no to that? Lol!
Fyi, Gia here has their own lobby! So cars could actually stop right in front of the entrance. There're 2 access, 1 from the lobby and the other is from the Sampoerna Strategic building. I'd suggest going through this lobby, seeing as you'd need an access card in the Sampoerna Strategic building!
An outdoor is also available for the smoking room, though it is way too hot there!
