Komachi - Le Grandeur Hotel Mangga Dua, Jakarta

Whenever I go back to Jakarta for my holidays, Mangga Dua is a must-go destination for all my electronic stuff and bootleg DVD needs. Understandably, it's not enough to visit Mangga Dua just once. It takes two or three, nay, four trips to satisfy my needs. For those unfamiliar with Mangga Dua, it's basically a place consisting of several shopping centers, and since they sell everything from fake Louis Vuitton bags to kitchen sinks at rock bottom price, it's always jam-packed with bargain hunting Jakartans, and also, visitors from outside Java, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, even Germany.

Visiting the Mangga Dua area is such an ordeal. Getting around its shopping centers is not an easy task since it's literally packed with people. And I'll say it's just nice to have a quiet, civil place to rest and have a nice meal after jostling with bargain hunters all day. This restaurant, Komachi, is such place. No wait, it's the ONLY place. It's the only 'civilized' restaurant around the area (unless you're willing to drive a little further to the new Mangga Dua Square) since the closure of the Taipan Restaurant in the same complex. Sure, they've got the usual fares like McDonald's, Hoka Hoka Bento, and a Food Court, but you won't be in the mood for junk food after arguing your butt off with persistent shop owners bargaining for a webcam or a Nintendo Wii now won't you?









Chawanmushi
-> Free of charge (now that's more like it! yay! Some things ARE actually free of charge in Jakarta!)



Teriyaki Chicken Teishoku
-> I love how they do it western-style (with fork and knive as well as chopsticks). And they serve fries to go with the Teriyaki Chicken? now that's mezurashii (unusual)!



Fuurutsu Kakigoori
(Shaved ice with fruits)
-> Looks nice, but tastes so-so. And the portion is wayy to big (I get headache halfway through eating this massive ice rock!)
