I love the concept of the newly opened GB Bistro and Dessert/formerly known as Gelato Bar, in Senayan City.The minimalist place is well designed for coffee and desserts eaters,also great for family and social gatherings. Too bad the service here (when I was there) was a dissapointment. There’s no one who greeted me, even though I’ve already took the initiative to make a reservation.And after I was seated, they didn’t even give the menu before I asked. Obviously this place needs to improve their management. Overall the menu was variant with Italian,Western and Asian food available.
Chicken Caesar Salad (IDR 65.000): Pretty good creamy salad with tasty grilled chicken breasts.
Chili and Pepper Calamari (IDR 65.000): Deep fried calamari rings with chilli and pepper. The calamari was a little overcooked,otherwise it was delicious.
Grilled Salmon 200 gr.(IDR145.000): Served with special oeiental sauce, with a choice of potato and side vegetables. I love this dish.Quite generous Salmon,cooked well and the best thing was the Teriyaki-like sauce.It’s yummy.
Nasi Goreng Cabe Ijo with Roast Duck (IDR 85.000):Their ‘so called’ signature dish wasn’t impressed me that much.The duck was fatty and the seasoning on the rice wasn’t bold enough for my taste.
Aglio Olio with Beef Bacon and Mushrooms (IDR 65.000): The pasta was alright.The fettucini was bland but tasted good when eaten with the salty mushrooms and bacon.
Jamaican Banana (IDR 55.000):Waffles with mascarpone gelato, banana slices drenched with peanut butter and chocolate sauce. I think it’s all about personal taste for waffles,for me this one was too crunchy/overcooked.
Death By Chocolate (IDR 65.000): Double brownies in the jar, served hot with gelato ice cream and berries sauce.I really dig this dessert.The portion was quite big and the chocolate taste was really rich.
Plus their gelato ice cream was a winner.
