Talking about western food or American cuisine to be specific, here in Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) area we don’t have many options. Usually AnakJajan drive to central or south Jakarta to get a decent western food. But now there’s a new kid on the block serving classic American cuisine, The Amerikana Diner.
The Amerikana is located at the same row with City Market supermarket at Pantai Indah Kapuk, exactly across Fresh Market PIK. It’s a diner and sports bar that’s why we notice the diner is equipped with projector screen, tv, bar and decorated with some sports memorabilia and locker room.
Being a diner, The Amerikana serves classic American cuisine and brunch menu all day such as finger food, sandwich, hotdog, salad, soup and burger with plentiful choices of drink from non-alcohol smoothies, milkshake, juice, coffee, soft drink, water, mocktail to alcohol drinks such as beer, cocktail or long drink.
Strawberry Banana Smoothies IDR 32k // Orange Juice IDR 28k
The Strawberry Banana Smoothies consists of strawberry, orange, pineapple juice, blended with coconut, banana, yoghurt and ice. It was really good, fruity refreshing yoghurt smoothie with nice balance of sweetness. While for fresh juice besides Orange, they also offer Mango, Lemon, Strawberry, Kiwi, Watermelon, Pineapple, Honeydew and Banana juices.
Frozen Iced Mango IDR 32k // Monkey Business IDR 38k
Both were our top favorite. The Frozen Iced Mango was soo good it reminded me with the one I had in Bangkok. While for the Monkey Business, we honestly never been a fan of milkshake drink but this one got us hooked. Creamy, chocolatey, nutty banana peanut butter milkshake with the right amount of creaminess we didn’t have any problem in finishing it.
Red Hot Chicken Wings IDR 45k // BBQ Chicken Wings IDR 45k
Specially in The Amerikana, you can order your chicken wings in traditional way with bone or also boneless. They have plentiful choices of seasoning starting from Buffalo, Mango Habanero, Garlic Parmesan, BBQ, Red Hot to Original. AnakJajan had the Red Hot and BBQ. BBQ was nice with a bit of smoky tangy aroma and flavor typical BBQ while the Red Hot is the spiciest among all with a hint of tabasco, it tasted very spicy indeed but still in the enjoyable level.
The French Toast Breakfast IDR 55k
Served with maple syrup and whipped butter the French toast was very unique and interesting with sweet yet savory combination, sweet from the toast and maple syrup and savory from the ham filling.
Notorious B.I.G Breakfast IDR 70k
They are obviously not joking when it comes to B.I.G portion. Specially for this menu you can order it beef or pork version, AnakJajan had the pork version. It consists of grilled pork ham, pork sausage, two eggs, hash brown and toasted bread. Everything was nicely executed and we enjoyed it a lot.
Uncle Sam’s Burger IDR 60k
For the burger, AnakJajan had the classic cheese burger with fresh veggie, beef patty and cheese. Beef patty was surprisingly very meaty yet juicy, overall it was a good burger.
Brooklyn Spaghetti and Meatballs IDR 180k
In terms of portion and size, this one is extremely satisfying. It’s soooo huge that it’s recommended to be shared for 3 people. It tasted pretty nice too especially the meatballs that were very huge, meaty and bouncy cooked with subtle tomato garliky seasoning.
Overall, food at The Amerikana were beyond our expectation! At first, AnakJajan honestly thought it would be another random restaurant with poor taste typical PIK restaurants but we were wrong, the food was actually nice, enjoyable and worth to try. Let’s Jajan!
