Restaurants that serve Mexican Food have been growing up lately. You can almost find it easily and it has started to become a trend in Jakarta. But have you imagine a Mexican food make fusion with Korean food? Well, you can find this unique combination in Mojo kitchen and bar
The idea of making this restaurant is formed when the owner, Steven Odang
, lived in LA. Most of the food in LA is Korean and Mexican food. Thus, the idea of combining both of Korean and Mexican food has become appealing to the owner. I thought for the first time that Mojo was taken because the owner loves to watch Powerpuff girls and inspired by the monkey villain character
Apparently I'm wrong since Mojo actually has a definition of sexual charm, maybe the owner would like to bring out our inner sexual charm from the food that the restaurant has created and serves.
In front of the restaurant door, we are shown by its “hospitality” which described by “Mojo reserves the right to refuse entry to guest who are not properly attired.”
Well, to look at the bright side of it, at least we won’t find any of the improper dress that we usually find in 7/11 or some shitty place.
When you first step in into the restaurant, you will have the impression of simple but appealing places. Chairs and tables are dominated by wooden furniture. For the wall, it was dominated by wooden wall and blackboard that filled with pictures and illustration. Vintage feeling is strong in here, for sure. In one of the wall, there is a slogan which sounded “Eating is a part of life you should get the best” I considered it as a challenge, so without further ado; bring it on!!1. Raining on Madeira (Rp30.000)
The taste of cucumber juice that dominates this drink makes us feel fresh and refreshed. This drink is mixed with Lychee juice, Lychee Syrup, a slice of lemon, sugar, and Lychee! Perfectly fitted to drink when you’re thirsty and in need of some refreshing taste.2. GSL (Rp25.000)
Stand for Guava, Strawberry and Lemon, which is blended in this drink. On top of it, they put a slice of strawberry to make the appearance more appealing. The taste is good and delightful. A Ladies drink, I believe so.3. La Ramalas (Rp25.000)
A peach mix with fresh sugar, white lime and soda. Not too sweet, balanced perfectly and the peach really makes the drink more appealing. I fall in love with La Ramalas!4. Port O Pi (Rp25.000)
Fresh ginger mixed with lemon grass, slices of lemon and soda. Very gingerly feel and fitted for the oldies and fan of ginger drink. Old but Unique!Classic Taco (Rp50.000)
We are opted to choose between Chicken / steak / Chorizo for the filling. There’s also Pico de Gallo, Guasacaca, Jalapeno relish and taco sauce in the filling. Well, it’s quite good, only to my disappointment, it came in small size,true, it was served in 2 for 1 portion, but still,..Korean Style Taco (Rp45.000)
In this dish, you can feel the fusion of Mexican & Korean Cuisine. The Taco is filled with cucumber pickles, pork belly, cabbage, and Kimchi. I repeat, Kimchi
!! So in this menu the outlook is taco but inside you can feel the sensation of Korean Cuisine. It tastes lovely and creamy. A Must try Taco! It’s so innovative Mojo Fried Rice (Rp45.000)
Fried rice with short ribs, green peas, Diablo Sauce, Mojo Verse and soft-boiled duck egg. When I cut the egg, the yellow part meltdown through the rice which is increase my appetite. The ribs is so tender and delicious while the fried rice itself taste awesome and a must try for Fried rice lovers. If I may, I recommend this menu when you came and visit Mojo.California Cheese Burger (Rp55.000)
It’s just another cheese burger with side dish of French fries. The fries taste so so while the best part in this menu will be beef. It’s thick but soft and delicious. The others are nothing special.Kimchi Spaghetti (Rp45.000)
This is what we called “When East Meet West”. Spaghetti mixed with beef bacon & Chili Padi Crumb. What makes it more interesting was on the top of it they give fried quail eggs and sea weed. From all the menu they served, this menu was the best in presentation. The spaghetti seasoning taste really delicious. I was wondering, what’s happening? Why all the food in here taste really great?Korean Chicken Wings (Rp35.000)
When I bought chicken wings, I got a free blackberry
!! Nah, just kidding. It’s just by coincidence I took the picture next to my friend’s blackberry. The Chicken Wings mix with Gochucang Glaze Seasoning, Sesame Seed & Chili Flakes. It taste so familiar with Chitato, that I feel like eating a chicken wings poured and sprinkled with Chitato's seasonings.Chipotle Glazed Herb Chicken (Rp55.000)
Lime-cilantro Rice served with glazed carrots and char scallions Vinaigrette. The chicken meat is quite tender and perfectly cooked. The taste of the chicken is very interesting to try since we can’t find it in any other restaurant. In this menu also, this is the first time for me to try Lime-cilantro Rice.Which tastes a lil bit sour--in a good way, of course.
They kept their restaurant hygiene very well and the waiters are kind and helpful towards the guest in here.
After all, the challenge to get the best in food which is written on Mojo’s Wall is success. Major admiration towards the restaurant covered me after eating in this restaurant. A must visit restaurant when we are around Senopati Area
