Pokenbir Restaurant, Lippo Kuningan, Setiabudi, Jakarta.
That moment when you visited one place that serves great food and you just cannot stop talking about that awesome meal you had. I bet most of you must have experienced it, right? Well, AnakJajan had that kind of experience again after a while at Pokenbir.
Where to eat and what to eat? That question is seriously difficult to answer since we want to have a delicious and satisfying meal that suits our mood and personal taste. Not long after returning from Japan, me and Mr. Jajan had a serious cravings for flavorful and spicy Indonesian food, when we were looking for place to eat on Saturday night, suddenly Pokenbir popped in my head, I’ve been curious about this place after hearing positive feedbacks from my foodie friends, luckily Mr. Jajan and my friends agreed to try it since they are big fan of porky dishes too.
We visited Pokenbir on Saturday night around 7.30PM, this place was packed with customers, we had to wait for around 5-10minutes. The restaurant is located at ground floor of an office building called Lippo Kuningan at H.R. Rasuna Said street next to Setiabudi One building. Just like its name, Pokenbir, Pork dishes are their specialty with mix of Indonesian, Asian and Western influences.
Caramelized Grilled Pork IDR 45k (Small)
Butter Miso Grilled Pork IDR 45k (Small)
Thinly sliced pork belly seasoned then grilled and served with potato chips and salad, love the sweet sour refreshing salad dressing, Butter Miso has a salty savory taste while Caramelized one has sweet-savory taste, both were equally nice but it could be more delicious if they grill it longer to make it more crisp.
Buta Pork Tori IDR 45k (Small)
The pork skewers were grilled nicely with tantalizing char-grilled aroma with simple salty seasoning. The meat was tender and well seasoned, it was nice but not as memorable as other dishes.
The Pork Belly IDR 87k (Small)
Other than the potato chips and salad, it comes with one potato side dish, we opted for potato cubes and it was yummy, boiled potato and then stir-fried with onion nicely until fragrant. The pork belly cubes were very tender and juicy with fantastic crunchy skin, they serve it with sweet soy sauce, mustard and chili sauce, my personal favorite would be the mustard sauce.
Indonesia big Pork Rice IDR 225k
The staff recommended this rice plater that consists of various pork dishes with recipes from all over Indonesia, we’re glad that we ordered it because it is a gigantic plate of porky awesomeness! The huge platter is suitable for sharing for around 4 people, it consists of rice and various pork dishes that were rich of spices and deep in flavor such as pork cubes cooked in Balinese ‘Sambal Matah’, deep fried crunchy pork belly strips, etc. Seriously recommended!
Overall, Pokenbir serves satisfying pork dishes with great flavor and reasonable price. As seen on our SNAPCHAT: ANAKJAJAN, we had a great time and left the restaurant with happy tummies, will be back for sure! Let’s Jajan!!
