OJJU JAKARTA - KOTA KASABLANKA06.40.00
Details on point: I love the idea of using the hanging lamps!
The dining utensils are placed inside a drawer attached to the table. Grab grab.
Banchan to start the meal
Don't forget to stir this before taking a sip because all the sugar and syrup is located at the bottom. I took a big sip (greedy bitch) and was almost coughing. For some reasons, this drink was yes refreshing, but it's lacking that "watermelon" character I wanted. The watermelon came in this icy ball figure, I need overall flavor.
Now moving to the main star of Ojju: the rolling cheese beef ribs! First of all, price wise and value: GOOD! For IDR 219k you're getting these chunky ass ribs, generous cheese and potato wedges on the side! Now flavor... no, you better enjoy the pictures first and then quick review :P
Not too long after they turn on the stove and everything starts cooking, the aroma gets super annoying in the most delicate way!
After a few minutes of cooking, they removed the potato wedges first from the hot pan to avoid over-cooking.
AND TO THE FUCKING FUN PART!!! RIBS ROLLED IN CHEESE. Beware foodporns are going to be very distracting.
The ribs were covered in generous Gokjujang sauce glaze and I think the sauce was pretty tasty and has got to be the highlight of this dish, without the sauce, basically there's nothing. The beef ribs were meaty and quite tender with the sauce absorbing to the meat, and avid fan of cheese will be thrilled to find that the extra cheese rolling and wrapping the ribs added more fun to your dining experience.
Anyway, I have to say that even though overall this dish was quite tasty, but somehow I was expecting more from this dish, it's like you know it's delicious but before actually trying, you kinda how and kinda can guess how the flavor is going to turn out. I was not feeling fireworks and I wanted to be surprised. I guess I wasn't, but don't get me wrong, I am not saying this is a bad dish but this is just so expected and in a way... not special.
If you "upgraded" to their fried rice package for IDR 29k, right after done with the ribs, they will proceed to cook the fried rice with the excess cheese (you can add extra cheese topping for IDR 32k if you want more). The "twist" came from the heart shaped they made on the center of the pan for the egg.
However gotta give it to the presentation tho!
