The Canteen

Today I'm gonna review about The Canteen in Plaza Indonesia. The Canteen also opened their restaurant in Pacific Place. A month ago, we decided to take a dinner in The Canteen, but after we ate in Raffel's, Pacific Place, we finally made a decision to have another dinner in YO' Panino. And now, we have an idea to trying The Canteen.
They have an unique concept for their restaurant which is next to Aksara bookstore. I might say I'm very impressed for their concept combining two places (restaurant and also a bookstore). The Canteen offer standard price with range 50k until 150k for the foods. Well, the price isn't the same as the price of school's canteen or whatev. But, if you wanna have some fancy lunch or dinner, you might spend more money, right?
We came a little bit late for our lunch. The place isn't that I expected (I thought it would be bigger). And the distance between the tables is uncomfortable for me. But, give them thumbs up for the service they provide! Thanks God, the restaurant has a good light so I can easily take a picture of my food!

Thai Prawn Croquette (50k)
 Served with sesame cilantro mayonaise dip. I must say that he loves it, but for me it's a little bit nauseated without any sauce.

Baked Potato with Smoked Salmon (50k)
Served with cream cheese for appetizer. I really love the plating and it's wondrous appetizer for me. How about the tastes? Is it "worth it"? I didn't ask the waitress for the salmon. And I realized the salmon is "uncooked" so, I leave it to my boyfriend (LOL). The baked potato is too cold but I do love the flavors and the cream cheese.

And for our drinks, we ordered:
 Dilmah English Tea (40k)

Coca Cola Zero (25k)
 For my suggestion for you guys: If you wanna have some fancy places to eat, you might check their restaurant's review first. Sometimes, the price isn't worth it for the taste, the service they provide, or the uncomfortable ambience. It's up to you :)
Thanks for reading my review, see you for my next yummy post!

  18. This post made me hungry:) I hate when a restaurant's tables are too close to each other as I feel uncomfortable as well. The plates look delicious, too bad they weren't that good though! I am always curious to try new restaurants but as you said they are not always worth the price. Have a lovely weekend!
