Tamani Express - Grand Indonesia, Jakarta

Ah...good ol' reliable Tamani. Yummy European fare tastefully modified to suit the Indonesian palate (that means, more grease, oil, fat, and accompanied with chili sauce!)

This is actually a 'Tamani Express', a food court version of the Tamani Cafe restaurant chain scattered across Jakarta. The menu is not as comprehensive as Tamani Cafe, but the hot favorites are all there - Poulet Cordon Bleu, Chicken Maryland, Mushroom soup with soup hat, Veal Parmigiana among others.

This Tamani Express has just opened a couple of months ago in the uber-luxurious Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, Indonesia's answer to Bangkok's famous over-the-top Siam Paragon. With over 300,000 square metres of luxury retail space, it is currently the largest luxury up-market shopping center in Asia. Currenlty, only 1/3 of the mall is opened, and most tenants have yet to open its doors, but the tres chic food court has began operation. It's all so exciting! Can't wait till mid 2008, when the whole complex is expected to open.

You know what, I really wish I could post more photos of the interior and exterior of the mall, which are so fantastic, but hey, that would go against the purpose of this blog. This is, after all, a food blog. For more pictures on the mall itself, I'd recommend (go to the Asian - Indonesian photo thread).

Nice decor concept. Very earthy and chic. If it wasn't for my lousy camera, perhaps I could have done more justice to the hip and happening place. I should have taken a picture of the (hand) wash station, too. It's so cool!

Chicken Maryland, served with pasta salad, fries, onion rings, and seasonal vegetables
-> mmm...comfort food.

Fried shrimp dumplings, served with Thai chilli, mayonnaise, and tomato ketchup)
-> Add IDR 9,900 when ordering a main course and you get this tasty side dish!

Tamani's famous Thai Iced Tea
-> Hands down, best Thai Iced Tea outside the beautiful Kingdom of White Elephant.

Thanks for the review.

Only if they know how to:
1. Train their staff to better
serve the customer with 'a heart'
(Not enough salary, perhaps?)

2. Serving the good mix between 'ice' and 'the drinks',
not 3/4 glass filled with ice cubes! :)
(Recepies for profitable business??)

Noted that profit still need to be made..
But don't be too much laa..

They should make the customer happy..
So that the customer returns...
Again and again..
