SoHo (Social House) has an outstanding reputation as one of the most popular & casually sophisticated restaurants in Jakarta. It has continued to create great atmosphere, new menus (breakfast,brunch,lunch,dinner) that satisfied the hunger of Jakarta’s -Bored Easily- attitude. Since it’s birth in 2008, I’ve been coming here countless times, but this time I went there with greater expectation..to write a review (hopefully a good one) about it.
As usual,the place was packed, that’s why it’s always a good idea to make a reservation in advance. We started the meal with Mozzarella en Caroza: It was perfect! Scrumptious Fried breaded crust mozzarella cheese with homemade chunky tomato sauce. Not a smart choice if you’re watching your weight, but it definitely made my day. 🙂 Next came Pappardelle, Lyonnaise Sausage & Mushroom in Truffle Butter Sauce: Flat, Fettucini-like pasta, sauted with garlic, olive oil, mushrooms & truffle oil. The dish was too oily for me and the pasta itself was tasteless compared to the salty mushrooms & sausages. The later was the Pan Fried Chicken Breasts in Mushroom & Sage Cream Sauce Served with Garlic Potatoes: Tender all white meat chicken with mushrooms & potatoes with rich creamy sauce. It was delectable! We concluded our meal with Warm Raspberry & Chocolate Chunk Brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream. This dessert didn’t hit me on the right spot. The brownies was okay,but the dry sticky raspberry bits in between bites were ruining the taste. I wished they just stick with fresh raspberries/none at all.
Despite all that, I think SoHo still manage to attract lots of culinary addicts because of the ambiance, the varieties of new menus, and the great service they offer. They made you feel like you’re experiencing a whole new restaurant every time you come here. It won’t be surprising to me if this restaurant will last longer than most of the stores in Grand Indonesia.
