Nomz Kitchen & Pastry - Communal Table 01

Grand Indonesia Shopping Town is one of my favourite destination in Jakarta. Packed with fancy cafe or restaurants, local store, gorgeous fashion boutiques, make up store and many more. Actually when i have plenty of free time during weekdays or even weekend, this area would be my choice for sure. Then, if you walk around Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, you'll find a new comer cafe in their area called Nomz Kitchen & Pastry. A place for those who are looking for international and local cuisine fused by nice ambience as well. By the way, they just have a new executive chef who is graduated from Australia called Chef Ferry Jong. He is a man behind every savoury dishes here. Also for the sweets, it's all handled by Chef Kim Pangestu, the expert of desserts. So, here is the full review for all of it. Let's take a look!

Having this kind of view every single time could lifting up your mood for sure. I do love the rustic concept and warmth atmosphere on this area. Also a simple accessories, like: glass of flower, a rack of book, short stairs and many more has been added into this area, in case to entertain your eyes for a while. When the night is getting older, this wonderful cafe has turned to be more cozy & dark. 

Fire Prawn with Nam Prik (IDR 65K)
This light bites absolutely entertain me for a while. A small prawn that cooked perfectly and covered with a thin layer of flour simply taste delicious. Maybe it looks so minimalist, but to be honest, i do like this. 

Mentaiko Grill Prawn (IDR 125K)
Such a great appetizer for all day long. The king prawn was cooked perfectly and technically the mentaiko sauce is pretty satisfying in terms of flavour & texture. A simple plate of this would't disappointed you folks!

Nomz Grilled Chicken Burger (IDR 95K)
A superior big burger featuring grill chicken, cos lettuce, tomato, chipotle mayo, and guacamole definitely DAYUM! I can feel they used a lot of seasonings on this burger and the complexity of every ingredients create a great flavour and whole texture of it. Also a simple french fries on the side simply entertain you while having this big patty for sure. Great idea and the presentation absolutely good!

Beef Ssamjang Burger (IDR 110K)
If you like beef, then you will go with this! A marinated wallumba grain - fed beef mixed with sambaing mayo, cos lettuce, and slice onion simply delicious. The beef is quiet satisfying in terms of the texture, but to be honest it taste pretty dry on the outside and juicy on the inside. Despite the fact that slice onion is too much, i could tell you here the whole flavour of this dish seems to be standard. I do recommend you the previous burger rather than this one. But if you love korean food and need to find something unique for your meal, i think this burger is your right decision for a while.

Asian Pork Rice (IDR 110K)
Best of THE BEST! I totally recommend you to try this folks. No more doubt to say, the Asian Pork Rice is deserved your kind attention all the time. Look at that meat. A perfectly cooked pork belly slices with soy glaze and fried egg on jasmine rice absolutely taste wonderful. I do love the main flavour and whole texture of that pork belly. It's totally juicy, little bit chewy and tasty for sure. Despite the fact that jasmine rice is too much to be served with that pork belly, i think every people who try this dish once, gonna ask for more.

Spaghetti Vongole (IDR 125K)
A combination between spaghetti with vongole, garlic, onion, chill, dash of white wine and parsley taste quiet good for some of my foodie friends, but not for me. For me the garlic flavour is over - power, it just dominate the whole flavour of this dish. Beside that a chop of chili on that pasta is not really suitable for sure. It could be very spicy for those who are ignoring any kind of chili or spicy sauce. Would be skip this for a while.

Brisket Sambal Bawang with Garlic Butter Rice (IDR 110K)
Actually this dish consist of beef brisket, samba bawang, garlic butter rice, and garlic chicken. The beef brisket taste quiet nice, i do love how they add a rich seasoning on it just in case to make it more tasty and delicious. On the other side, that crackers seems to be too much for me and it doesn't really help to decorate this dish. But for Jakarta citizens, i think they gonna love every single dish that served with a lot of crackers. Since they couldn't leave crackers and rice for sure.

Black Sticky Rice & Cheese Cake (IDR 55K)
MUST TRY FOLKS! This is one of my favourite dessert in Jakarta and only this place who served this. The layer seems to be structured and a lovely cream cheese is a good things to balanced the whole flavour of it. I do love the simple presentation and a wonderful flavour of this dessert. Gonna come back for more!

Caterpillar (IDR 48K)
If you love chocolate, then you should go with this. A combination between dark chocolate and chocolate mousse seems to be quiet good for a while. I do love the original flavour of the dark chocolate and to be honest it taste so sweet. For those who are searching for some high sugar treats, i bet this dessert could be your right answer.

Snow White (IDR 40K)
It was pretty decent for sure! I do love the unique presentation and simple flavour of it. The cookie base is a brilliant idea here just to create a good texture of it, while the sweet topping dominate the whole flavour of it. 

Overall,every single dish that they served here is pretty satisfying! I do enjoy every single dish here (Ignore the pasta) and mingle with my foodie fellas was a great experience for sure. Make sure you won't missed it folks!
