Coco Ichibanya - Grand Indonesia

Ayee Mates!!
I went to this all-people-have-been-talking-about the recently (not really) open curry house in town, Coco Ichibanya!! I'm quite a fan of curry especially the one from Japan. So, I went there to try their foods and these are what I got.. 

Chicken Cutlet Omelet Curry, IDR 70000
I ordered their specialty and I must say its quite satisfying tho~ The portion is quite big and for me I could share this with other people.The egg that wrap the rice is so fluffy and soft! It really match to my liking. The chicken is tender and I must say the combinations are almost perfect but I prefer to have some veggy in it like carrot and potato. But if you're the type of person that don't really eat veggy then this is for you. 

Sausage Salad, IDR 35000
Personally, I'm not a big fan of salad but since I'm trying to be in a "healthy life" I decided to eat more veggy and also salad for dinner or lunch. When I first saw this on the menu I'm quite excited because hey I love sausage so I decided to ordered it because IDR 35000 for a salad is considered as cheap tho! The veggy is so fresh and I don't know what dressing they use but I can feel the hint of peanut-y scent from it, so I assume it contains peanut (?) and also not to worry people the sausages are cooked not raw :D

Beef Dhabi Curry, IDR 65000
This is what my bro ordered so I can't really describe the taste in specific way. But I did took a bite of his and I must say it taste good. The meat is tender and it has a little bit taste of teriyaki/yakiniku to me. Its perfectly cooked.

Chicken Cutlet Curry, IDR 60000
This one taste exactly like mine except it doesn't have that egg omelet thing that wrap the rice. So it taste good but it looks so dull and lifeless.. Well, that is one lesson should be learn xD

I must say my first trip here was quite unpleasant. So its kinda a "Bad First Impression" feel to me. Because the service is so slow!! OMGGGG~ and I'm starving that time so very bad bad first impression. Also there are no wifi connection there #sad. But on the good side the decor is quite lovely and the adequate lightning really give a cozy and warm vibes. For my dad, he said that this will be his last trip here because of the slow service and the food are quite on the pricey side #true. All the prices above exclude 10% tax & 5% service charge.

  1. I think I've heard of this place before. It looks pretty good, but it's too bad that the service was so slow!

  2. I went to that restaurant too last year, but not in GI, in Gandaria. Now they put some veggy in every menu, and the taste still just so so.
