Talking about all-day breakfast menu, Benedict has been one of our personal top favorites in 2015. Incorporated in The Union Group, this sister restaurant of Caffe Milano, Canteen, Casa, Cork & Screw, E&O, Leowy and Union focuses on hearty all-day breakfast menu inspired by Western, Asian and Mediterranean cuisines. Besides all-day breakfast menu, you can also find other homemade creations such as sausages, breads, pastries and cakes to accompany gourmet artisanal coffee from Toby’s Estate Coffee Roasters.
The geniuses behind Benedict tasty dishes are none other than the talented Chefs Fernando Sindu and Ivan Wibowo, two chefs that share the same passion for cooking and also impressive background where chef Fernando has experience as Sous Chef at the Boqueria Restaurant in New York City and Chef Ivan at Noma restaurant that is one of world’s best restaurants in the world.
Continuous innovation is one thing that I personally think is important for F&B business to survive and remain interesting among other new places especially in Jakarta. I’m glad to see the new menu addition at Benedict, let’s see how is it.
Pretzel & Salted Caramel Milkshakes IDR 50k
Pretzel biscuit, salted caramel

Nutella, Ferrero Rocher Chocolate
Strawberry Basil IDR 50k
Strawberries, Basil syrup
Joining the new trend of milkshake with innovative flavors, Benedict has also launched few new milkshakes such as Pretzel & Salted Caramel, Nutella Milkshakes and Strawberry Basil. All of them have the right amount of sweetness and creaminess with interesting combination especially the fruity Strawberry milkshake with hint of basil aroma, it’s an unusual yet suprisingly a successful combination.
Pork Belly Benedict IDR 85k
Fried mac & cheese patty, crispy pork belly, portabello mushroom, oven roasted tomatoes, green goddess hollaindaise

This is our personal favorite, so so sooooooo good we highly recommend you to try it! Full of Japanese flavor, the seasoning is just perfect, savory, sweet, creamy and flavorful altogether. Love the way they seasoned the chicken with sweet savory glaze, rice with savory rich mushroom flavor and topped with addicting torched dynamite hollandaise sauce.
Oxtail Orecchiette IDR 95k

Lindt Dark Chocolate & Chocolate Crumbs IDR 30k / Salted Caramel IDR 30k
Ice cream also gets additional new flavors such as Lindt Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel. AnakJajan personally enjoyed the smooth rich texture of their ice cream with perfect amount of sweetness.
