Black Angus Sirloin Beef IDR 198k
Black angus sirloin beef was served with vegetables, potato gratin and three types of sauce: wasabi pepper sauce, porcini sauce or ginger sauce. Wasabi pepper sauce was really unique and one of a kind, all of my foodie friends and Mr. Jajan love it so much, but I still prefer the ginger sauce since I’m not a fan of wasabi.

Pana Cotta & Berry Sauce IDR 58k
Pannacota has the right amount of sweetness but texture wise still improvement, because it was lack of the silky jiggling-jiggling texture like usual pannacota.
