Finally there’s a new hangout spot at Senopati area, Ms. Choo Brasserie and Bar.
It has been a while since the last time a new restaurant or cafe opened in Senopati area. AnakJajan clearly remember there was a time where new restaurants continuously popping out in Senopati area but lately the phenomenon has slowed down since the beginning of this year.
Ms. Choo is not a new restaurant as a whole, is it actually the new transformation from the previous restaurant Publico with totally new and different concept and menu.
The building is consist of 3 floors with private room on the first floor, smoking area on the second floor and non smoking area on the third floor. Talking about the interior, Ms. Choo is combining eastern and western concept where you can still see some resemblance of western interior from previous restaurant.
Embracing the Asian concept, Ms. Choo also serves Asian cocktails, AnakJajan must say that their cocktails were different and very unique we enjoyed almost all of it, price wise was also pretty affordable for cocktails. Our personal favorite would be the nutritious White Empress that tasted very light, sweet, flowery yet fruity.
