Behold, the belated post of my Valentine's day dinner date at Scusa, a comfy, modern-stylish Italian restaurant located just inside Intercontinental Hotel, Jakarta. :)
The menu was placed under this round glass, made a nice decor and also cleverly served as a placemat.
\\ THE FOOD \\
↑ Sweet Water Prawn Cocktail with preserved lemon ↑
↑ Lobster Bisque clams, langoustine and spinach tortellini ↑
↑ Sole Fillet zucchini and herb flan, tomato-basil chutney and saffron reduction ↑
↑ Wagyu Beef Tenderloin Parmesan potato cake and truffled veal jus ↑
↑ Chocolate Cake fresh cream, marinated strawberries and vanilla-almond ice cream ↑
\\ THE PLACE \\
The whole dinner experience was nice, the food was pretty in presentation but average in taste. The appetizers - Prawn Cocktail, Lobster Bisque and Sole Fillet were great, but we expected more for the main entry and dessert, which I thought weren't very good.
The ambience was casually romantic, the whole place was dimly lit, each table was presented with a pretty red rose for the lady and decorated with rose petals and a candle. A Jazz duo performing live on stage and romantic music would fill in whenever the musicians took a break or two.
Oh, and because it was Valentine's Day, the place was packed, I mean, REALLY packed with young couples dressing up and sitting across from each other, eating and throwing awkward conversations lol. So, if you are looking for a more private place, this might not be it. But if you're looking for a more casual-yet-you-can-still-dress-up fine dining moment, you know where to call:
