MOTHER MONSTER - PLAZA INDONESIA

Last night I came to the opening of this highly anticipated restaurant (for me) in Plaza Indonesia: Mother Monster, which is the brainchild of two big players in the Jakarta F&B industry: The Common Grounds and Biko group! Common Grounds is very popular for their brunch cafes and gorgeous coffees and Biko for its chic nightlife scene (and good drinks too!). When I know that my dear friend, Gloria Susindra is the head chef (aka mother/monster of the kitchen) I kinda had this good feeling (or should I say expectation) because I've always loved her food ever since the St. Ali days and I know she's very talented, but of course even though they're my friends that doesn't mean that I am not going to be an honest review.

Mother Monster is located at the 1st level of Plaza Indonesia replacing what was Sushi Tei and precisely beside also the newly opened So Thai (which I visited last week but haven't written the review :*). It's super catchy from the outside with their grey couch, coffee bar and a peek to their pink room, actually the fact that they named this restaurant Mother Monster is already fuckin catchy.
 Restaurant entrance
I love how the different vibe of each room kinda transfer me to a different space, the 'outdoor' seating is a bit more laid back, the pink room (which is my personal favorite) is a sweeter and more feminine, while the bar and dining area at the back is a bit darker, louder with more 'party' vibe. I'm pretty sure that their Pink Room is going to be hit as it's pastel pretty and very Instagenic!
Their toilet is also pretty catchy with a framed picture of Don*ld Tr*mp and a word on top of his face.
 The back dining area
For the food here, they're trying to offer mainly Western comfort food like salad, pasta, steaks, brunch meals and healthy indulgences, also several selections for vegetarians and vegans! Since this is the brainchild of Common Grounds and Biko of course expect to find freshly roasted coffees (and I'm glad that they bring the Flora Technica blend here!), as well as selections of fun cocktails, mocktails, liquors and more! Quick scan of the menu and honestly the price tag is not bad at all (I mean for recent cafe's standard) food starts around IDR 40k-300k and drinks starts around IDR 30k.

Not Your Basic B***h - IDR 55k
Complimentary - Crustacean Toast
This was the complimentary from the house (thank you guys!), deep fried toast topped with fresh shrimp and Chili Aioli dressing! The dressing really enchances the performance of this dish.

Complimentary - Pleasure Garden
Another complimentary, champ on presentation, cute af but this one's pretty strong with Vodka base I guess? I don't know I am not very big on drinks correct me if I'm wrong, but for the cuteness sake and sweet bold punch,
Monster Chicken Skin (with Indomie seasoning) - IDR 50k
Glad I ordered this, well first because I can never say no to mouthwatering looking chicken skin, secondly for how perfectly this is cooked! Crispy, crunchy without being oily (and not to mention for the big pieces). One thing that's lacking was the Indomie seasoning, when I read 'Indomie' on the menu I expected in your face, full blown MSG.
48-Hour Ragout Pasta
Their pasta was SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS! Perfectly al-dente Pappardelle with beautifully seasoned Ragu alla Bolognese, generous minced beef! My palate was seriously spoiled with savory goodness, altogether a simple dish but all about the rich flavor! MUST ORDER!
Hungry Wagyu Top Sirloin 200 gr - IDR 250k
Technically a secondary cut beef but they managed to cook it beautifully without bothering the good marbling! Still very tender, very juicy just how I like it.
They have some side dishes to pair the steaks with (or simply as a la carte dishes). I had the Tiny Corn (IDR 45k) and Cauliflower (IDR 45k). Loving the cauliflower A LOT!
Magic Shroom Burger - IDR 115k
From their "I Don't Eat Meat" menu aka vegetarian menus! Battered chunky portobello mushroom with handcut fries! Mushroom was uber juicy, fresh and packed with flavors, but oh quick tip: ask for the confit aioli for your burger for extra flavor!
After packing myself with quite a lot of food, still in need for dessert so I opted for a light one like this Mango dessert, another complimentary on the house! The mango sorbet was BOMB, and I uber love the cashew sponge cake, very soft, fluffy and not sweet! If you still have the tummy to indulge on dessert, choose the chocolate version of this, flavor wise, I like that one better!
Mother Monster is the kind of cafe that I like, even though they might not have something new or unique to offer but F&B wise, they're serious and as I am typing this I am still drooling over their ragu pasta, it's THAT good for me.

    Saya di sini untuk bersaksi tentang kebaikan Allah dalam hidup saya dan bagaimana saya diselamatkan dari tekanan finansial karena bisnis saya sedang menurun dan keluarga saya dalam keadaan asulit sehingga kami bahkan tidak dapat membayar uang sekolah untuk anak-anak, karena kepahitan mengambil alih hatiku
    Suami saya juga menggagalkan karena kami menjalankan bisnis keluarga di (Surabaya, Jawa Timur) dimana kami jadi bingung suami saya mencoba untuk mendapatkana pinjaman dari bank dia menolak pinjaman jadi dia online mencari pinjaman karenaa dia ditipu oleh sone imposters online yang menjanjikan kepadanya pinjaman dan mengatakan harus membayar biaya untuk mendapatkan pinjaman sehingga husbank saya meminjam uang dari teman-temannya untuk membayar biaya maka mereka meminta biaya lagi dengan beberapa alasan dia harus pergi dan meminjam dari saudaranya di (Bekasi) untuk memastikan dia mendapatkan pinjaman setidaknya untuk membi/aayai kebutuhan keluarga dan setelah dia membuat biaya, dia diminta untuk membayar lagi dengan alasan tertentu, hal ini membuat keluarga kelaparan meningkat sehingga kami harus mengumpulkan makanan dari tetangga dekat kami. dan selama berbulan-bulan kami menderita dan bisnis ditutup untuk sementara waktu
    Jadi satu sore yang setia sekitar pukul 14:00 tetangga dekat ini menelepon saya dan mengatakan bahwa dia akan mendapatkan pinjaman dari perusahaan pinjaman secara online sehingga jika dia mendapatkan pinjaman, dia akan mengenalkan saya ke perusahaan tersebut sehingga kami pergi ke ATM bersama-sama dan Memeriksa pinjaman itu tidak ada sehingga kami menunggu sekitar 30 menit kemudian kami mendapat peringatan di teleponnya dari banknya bahwa dia telah menerima monney di akunnya sehingga kami memeriksa saldo rekeningnya dan lihatlah 300 juta kepadanya sebagai pinjaman
    Segera saya berteriak di depan umum sambil menangis dan pada saat itu yang bisa saya pikirkan adalah jika saya dengan jumlah seperti itu, masalah saya berakhir, jadi kami pulang ke rumah saya tidak memberi tahu suami saya, dari 1 juta dia memberi saya saya membeli beberapa bahan makanan di rumah dan berlangganan dan tetangga saya dan saya meminta pinjaman kepada perusahaan karena dia memberi saya pedoman sehingga kami mengikuti prosesnya karena prosesnya sama sehingga setelah semua prosesnya, rekan-rekan saya diberi pinjaman oleh saya
