Hey Melbournites, do you miss the food back home? If you are, then head over to Melbourne Kitchen! This is definitely the medicine to cure your homesickness. It’s located inside Cilandak Town Square, one of the hippest spots in Jakarta.
The place is quite spacious and cosy, dominated by minimalist design and cool murals. The original outlet is situated in Nylan Hotel, Bandung and FYI, it’s the sister company of the very famous ‘The Cranky Crab’, Kelapa Gading.
The Gyu Tan Don and Salted Chicken Egg are both very highly recommended! If you’ve tried the Gyu Tan Don in The Cranky Crab, well it’s the exact same one. The Cranky Crab wants to focus on seafood only. That’s why they created Melbourne Kitchen – to put all of the Melbourne-related menu items in one place.
For the Gyu Tan Don, it has nice seasoning and the ox tongue itself is cooked really well. They serve a very generous portion too! If eating ox tongue is too weird for you, then the Chicken Salted Egg would be a great choice.
Don’t forget to finish the meal off with a Cranky Flying Beer! It’s one of the best selling drinks here. The presentation is very unique because of the upside down bottle.
When: Monday – Sunday / 10.00 – 22.00
Where: Cilandak Town Square
Level 1 #108-110
