AW Kitchen by Akira Watanabe Jakarta

It's crazy how there's a lot of new restaurants, like every week there's a new food place that offers and of them is AW Kitchen by Akira Waranabe which just opened a few weeks ago. They offer us a Italian and Japanese fusion, most of the menu is Italian where the ingredients are mostly used in Japanese food, nowadays there's a lot of Italian and Japanese fusion, actually I'm not into that style but can AW Kitchen change me ?

AW Kitchen by Akira Watanabe is located in the biggest shopping mall Plaza Senayan 4P , just next to Garcon. This is a food area, because in this level there's a lot of restaurant and cafe which are already well-known. Even, AW Kitchen still new but I'm quite sure that they'll be one of the most hectic restaurant in Plaza Senayan.

The dining area is quite big, and they have 2 VIP rooms, which connectable with capacity of 20 peoples. I really love their ambiance and decoration, like mostly Italian food, there's an open kitchen where you can see the pizza was baked. Anyway, the lightning here was kinda warm and yellow. Beside the environment I also proud of their service, all the staffs were friendly, polite and responsive. Now let's go to the food !  

Fresh Mocktails !!

>> Spaghettini Pescatore 
IDR 148.000

One of the most famous Italian food, Spaghetti ! The portion was BIG ! You must share this, you can't enjoy it by yourself haha. The spaghetti was perfectly cooked or in Italian food we called them al dente this spaghetti was combined with seafood including tiger prawn, squid, clams and green mussels. The seafood was so fresh, sweet, chewy and... perfect. This pasta was cooked with tomato based sauce, but the tomato wasn't overpowering but give an acidity of this food, and be a harmony in every bite, love it ! Don't forget the rocket leaf on it ! 

>> Black Angus Sirloin Beef
IDR 198.000

Steak is like the most common dish, not only in Western food, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and even Indonesia have their own steak and this is the signature dish from AW Kitchen, Black Angus Sirloin Beef yes I always love sirloin steak and they cooked in medium, so the meat still reddish and you feel the juice from the beef, after they grilled they stir with butter and herbs which make the taste was rich. Served with 3 special sauce : porcini sauce, ginger sauce and wasabi pepper sauce. Yes you have to try their Wasabi pepper sauce, stunning ! don't forget the side dish, delicious potato gratin and stir vegetables, it's a top class dish , must try !!

>> Chocolate Profiterole 
IDR 68.000

Dessert dessert dessert ! I had Chocolate Profiterole, this is actually a choux with cream cheese fillings and then topped with mixed fresh fruits and chocolate sauce, simple yet delicious. I love the presentation, the color was blended beautifully. But it's better if the filling was added by vanilla or rhum to give an aromatic sensation.

>> Pana Cotta & Berry Sauce 
IDR 58.000

I had a high expectation for this panacotta but unfortunately this not what I want. The texture was far away from my expectation, but the sweetness level was good and they also served beautifully, if the texture was softer and more silky, this will be a great dish.

>> Banana and Strawberry Tiramisu
IDR 68.000

The last one ! Banana & Strawberry Tiramisu, as tiramisu is an Italian dessert, I hope it will be a great dessert and YES ! They're good. The coffee wasn't that strong and well blended to banana and strawberry, I also like the presentation and the idea serving this tiramisu with watermelon :p Simple but delicious, I was falling in love with this Tiramisu. 

I enjoy my dinner here, they have a great ambiance and also the service. The food was amazing, but they still have to improve their desserts especially the pannacotta, but beside that I really love this restaurant. The price range is also affordable and I absolutely will come back to try another great Italian-Japanese fusion dish.

  3. AW Kitchen is a nice modern Italian and Japanese pasta house. Chef Akira Watanabe introduced it. I visited Jakarta after my hawaii island tours. In Jakarta I visited many places. AW Kitchen is one of them. I really like their food. In my five day tour I visited it twice. There I ate Panna Cotta in Berry sauce was surprisingly smooth and silky and tomato and cream based pasta with a Japanese flair. It was so yummy. In my next tour I want to go there again.
