It was Sunday morning.
Trying out a new place to eat is my favorite thing to do besides sleeping or reading.
Anddd, today’s meal will be at Umabo
It was a small quiet place in South Jakarta. Not hard to find because it’s located in a main busy road.
I really don’t know what to expect because I didn’t have the chance to Google this place up first before I actually going.
We start on ordering the Chicken Wing Siracha 1/4 kg (you can choose the sizing – for the 1/4 kg it cost 38K) and this drink called Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake (35K).
OH, we ordered using an iPad – which likely become common in Jakarta’s restaurant. So we pick our order using the iPad then the order will come later. But, it’s kinda awkward when we already order from the gadget, then the waitress always come to confirm our order once again; it’s like, duh!
Anyway, the wings are good – it considered spicy for those who don’t really into spicy food, but me personally liked it. The Toasted Marshmallow, as pictures below is some kind of milkshake (vanilla & I taste a hint of caramel I guess) with 2 toasted marshmallow on top – nice, not too sweet not to plain. Spot on taste for me.
For the main course, after switching this and that on the menu (the main menu filled with burger and rice/ noodle bowl); me my self ordered the best bowl menu on the list (based on the waiter recommendation), it called Ribs Me Up (60K) and as stated on the description that it’s a slow cook short ribs, roasted eggplants, creamed corn, braised garlic, poached eggs and crispy shallot. In my opinion the description was too crowded (but turn out all the ingredients complement each other!). My two other friends ordered Ribs Bene (60K) and also trying out the recommended burger in here called Steroid Burger (65K).
IT WAS SURPRISINGLY GEWD!
I really can’t describe the taste, but hey it was worth it. The meat on the burger is the real deal, the poached egg, the corn, the salad and its dressing, the mayo, even the eggplant taste good (from a person who’s not really a fan of eggplant, that statement is huge)
Still wants to nibble on something, we ordered the Chili Fries (25K). Not really what I have in mind, but then again, it was good (The cuts of fresh chili on top of the fries make all the difference).
I will definitely come back to try their interesting menu.
Happy tummy on a bright bright Sunday makes a happy face!
