Have you been to Casadina? This place is such a hidden oasis in the middle of Jakarta, let me tell you why.
Right in the middle of skyscrapers, there’s a cozy restaurant building with huge window opening facing swimming pool and surrounded by green plants. Interior itself also very homey with wooden ceiling and furniture, cozy and relaxing music. This place is a perfect oasis to escape from the bustle of Jakarta.
It’s located literally next to the entrance gate of Taman Rasuna Apartment for tower 17, near Epicentrum Walk mall. Casadina Kitchen & Bakery opens early everyday so you can have your breakfast first before going to office, they serve Asian, Indonesian, Indian, Italian, Grill, Breakfast menu, Pastry, Cake, Bread, etc.
The most popular drink at Casadina is their healthy crush or slushy made with real fruits, veggies, beans, nuts and honey. AnakJajan tried Dragon Snap, Get Skinny and Green Lush, these full of health benefit drinks were very refreshing and tasty with a lil bit of sweetness using natural honey. My personal favorite would be the Green Lush, even though it was made of pok choy vegetable, it tasted fruity and refreshing, very suitable for me because I seldom eat veggie 🙂

Verde Tagliatelle Chicken IDR 50k
Casadina offers various kind of homemade pasta hare just like this one below, homemade tagliatelle pasta with creamy pesto sauce, grilled chicken and mushroom. The creamy pesto was perfectly balanced and very enjoyable, it was not too creamy and not over powering pesto. Texture of the homemade tagliatelle pasta itself was good.
Spaghettini Pescatore IDR 75k
This one of the new addition of their Italian homemade pasta, seafood homemade spaghetini with three color or spaghetini, yellow original, orange made from red pepper & tomato paste and green made from spinach. The spaghetini was cooked with blackpepper sauce, calamary, dorry fish, smoked salmon and grilled prawn. The seafood was very fresh and I love love loveee the blackpepper seasoning on the grilled prawn a lot, freaking sweet and juicy.
BBQ Smoked Beef Pizza IDR 70k
Thin homemade Italian pizza topped with smoked beef, mushroom, grilled vegetables, BBQ sauce and melting cheese. The pizza was nice, I love the crunchy crust and the use of BBQ sauce in it.
Murgh Makani Butter Chicken IDR 62k
The butter chicken here is one of their most popular and best selling dish, it is a slow cooked masala chicken in creamy tomato gravy served with pratha bread, papadam and raita. We super recommend you to order this one because it was insanely delicious!! The tender butter chicken was very rich in a good way, the tanginess from tomato sauce really brings out the flavor in this dish. This one is Mr. Jajan’s favorite menu, in fact he keeps talking about it and already planning to re-visit Casadina 🙂
Rogan Josh IDR 65k
Kashmiri aromatic lamb curry cooked with caramelized browned onion. AnakJajan usually not a bit fan of Indian food because of the strong overpowering spices, but both of Indian dishes we had at Casadina were very enjoyable, we love how they mix the spices in the right way without overpowering the whole dish. All Indian dishes are served with homemade pratha bread, papadam and raita, the raita a.k.a yoghurt dipping sauce was da bomb!! Very refreshing and seasoned well it was a perfect condiment to balance the richness of Indian dish.
Besides heavy meal, Casadina also serves various freshly baked bread, pastries and cakes everyday. If you don’t want to have any heavymeal, you can just sit and relax there having cup of coffee or tea with cake/pastries or dessert.
