Yes, the most awaited Sensory Lab from Melb has finally arrived in Jakarta at Mall Kelapa Gading 3 to be exact! Very close to the lobby and right across Starbucks, so it's pretty easy to spot. If you came from a different lobby however and if you're not familiar with this mall like me, you'd get pretty confused..it's embarrassing to admit but I almost got lost here. Plus, the security is very hard to find!
The interior is pretty simple and all so white. There's also a space outside of this with a somewhat garden theme, maybe it's supposed to be their 'outdoors'?
A sneak peak of the menu that we could choose for today, also known as their signatures!
Starting off with Ice Cold coffees! Yes, their ice cold is made into this glass bottles, though I don't know if we can bring the bottles for a takeaway.
As always, there's a La Maison stand where you can satiate your macaroon cravings!
SPAM FRIES IDR 55K
Fried pork spam, hand cut potato fries, served with chipotle mayo.
Best lite bite ever! Anything with spam can't be bad actually and the fries are just lovely! The chipotle mayo is also wonderful, everything in this plate is just absolute love!
BBQ Brisket Burger IDR 100K
Slow braised pulled Australian beef brisket, cheddar cheese, soft scrambled eggs, dill pickle, chipotle mayo, and onion strings.
Nothing to complain here! Just look at that shiny buns and you can just taste the softness of the scrambled eggs just by looking at it! Though it might look overwhelming, once you tasted it, you won't be able to stop. Everything just comes together nicely and though every elements packs a punch, it doesn't overpower the other!
SPAGHETTI CHORIZO MEATBALLS IDR 75K
Homemade spicy chorizo meatballs, rich tomato sauce, parmesan cheese.
This is actually a friend's pick, so I didn't really try it as I'm not a big fan of anything tomato based! Sorry all!
THE FRI-KEN BENEDICT IDR 75K
Fried chicken, two poached eggs, chipotle hollandaise on toasted buttery brioche.
Hmm..I wonder why they like to use chipotle so much? Though I can't really complain as it's super good! This one's an all time fave with it's crispy chicken glazed with chipolte and delicious brioche, not too mention the awaiting egg porn with those poached eggs! Yummy!
Yeap, 100% egg porn!
VANILLA PANNA COTTA IDR 55K
Homemade granola, mixed berry compote, orange segments, orange syrup, mint leaves.
Totally amazed by how they were able to turn something so simple into something so gorgeous! This is ultimately the prettiest vanilla panna cotta I've ever seen and taste amazing too! A treat for the eye and mouth!
After opening their first branch last month, they've now opened their second branch just a few days ago! How ambitious! Yes, their second branch is inside PIK Avenue and I can't be more happy about it, as Kelapa Gading is just way too far for me..lol!
