Last weekend my girlfriends and I went to Plaza Senayan after Homecoming Alumni Santa Ursula (I'll post that one later, so please be patient).
Chatterbox Cafe is relatively pretty familiar in Jakarta cos I've been there over and over again since I was a kid. My favorite meals back then were Fish and Chip and Chicken Cordon Blue. However since I'm grown up I believe it's time to make a different. Besides, I need to pay extra attention of what I eat to avoid obesity and other diseases. Hence I've been trying not to eat anything fries. Wish me luck!
Here's what I got for dinner. No fries! It was a steam-rice with corns and peas that surrounded by sliced of beef, mushroom on top, pak coy and carrots all smothered in the oyster sauce. Tasted great and pretty cheap. In case you were wondering about the name, I was confused myself but I was telling you the real name; a combination of Bahasa and English.
HAINANESE FRIED CHICKEN RICE
These were Rica's.
It's an ordinary hainanese chicken rice along with a soup, but the chicken are fried. Not sure about what it tasted but it looked very delicious!
This was Happy's.
Served in a pan but didn't look yummy at all. Maybe it was just my opinion since I didn't like Kuetiaw. Apparently Happy left behind almost half of her meal by the end of the day. She said she was full already, so yeah. I'll let you decide.
As for the appetizer, we ordered Oriental Snack that cost IDR 22,500. It was a combo of chicken wings, onion ring and fried calamary. Surprisingly it came out after the main courses so pardon me for not taking pics during meals LOL.
Hot Green Tea IDR 15,000 (refillable hot water only)
Hot Jasmine Tea IDR 15,000 (refillable hot water only)
Coca Cola IDR 12,000
*All price excluded 15% Government Tax.
CHATTERBOX Cafe offers both local and international menu in affordable price. I also love its relaxed ambience and simple modern interior design. It also has 3 private rooms if you want an intimate moment or simply stay away from the crowd. Definitely one of great places to dine in with family and friends.
