It was in a Thursday rainy nite, when friend of mine offered me a free voucher to dine in Mangkok Putih, FX Lifestyle X'nter. Fortunately, I was in the mood of leaving my work and escaping somewhere hehehe...So, I asked my roommate to accompany and here we were in what so called Asian cuisine resto, Mangkok putih.
Let's see the menu. I've heard about this resto before and the least I know is the cuisine which is Asian. We can see various Asian cuisines ranging from Indonesian, Malaysian, Thailand, to Vietnamese foods and they put them into categories. The categories among others:
Small Bites, consist of several appetizers:
Otak-otak, Shrimp cracker, Cassava Cracker, Chicken wings, etc;
Lamien, consists of various Lamien, a typical Chinese hand-made noodle:
Tomyam Lamien, Seafood Lamien, Beef Sliced Yamien, etc;
Soup Dish, consist of various soup:
Tomyam Goong, Wontoon Soup, Hainan Chicken Noodles, etc;
Rice Dishes consist of Asian mixed rice:
Hainan Duck Rice, Broccoli Beef, Duck Black pepper, etc;
Fried Rice consist of various fried rice:
Vegetable Fried Rice, Chicken Fried Rice, Salted Fish Fried Rice, etc;
From the Wok consist of various typical Hong Kong and Malaysian cuisines:
Hokkian Chicken, Hongkong fried Noodles, Penang Fried Kwetiaw, etc;
Japanese Corner, consist of various Japanese small bites:
Chicken Teriyaki, Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Curry Katsu, etc;
They also served many kinds of beverages including their specialty such as Vanilla Milkshake, Oreo Sandwich Shake, Strawberry Crush, etc. Since I familiar with Indonesian food, so I decided to try Thailand and Singaporean foods.
Beef Sliced Lamien – 34,5K
Hainan Duck Rice – 42K
The price range is also fair. They offers about IDR9,000 – 39,000 for appetizer; IDR26,000 – 50,000 for main course; IDR10,000 – 23,000 for beverages.
For services, I regretted that they don’t have competent waiters, I heard one of them yelled to one other inside the kitchen when he asked for a food. Don’t they think that there were several customers around? Some of them even don’t know when I asking the ingredients of food and the bad was they don’t know the social media used by the restaurant either website, facebook, and twitter. Oh come on! Where is the supervisor?!
Overall, I can’t say anything for this restaurant except the food that I taste, even though I only enjoyed the tom yam, at least I had enough dinner time and I might be considering to go back here.
