Belly Inc, strategically located at one of PIK’s busy restaurant row, is offering an asian fusion menu in a cozy dining place. It was opened in early January this year and already serving quite a number of PIK’s visitors. If you came during busy dining hours, be prepared to spend some time looking for parking cause this side of PIK was really packed, even though not all the restaurants were full.
I entered this building with an interesting Belly Inc logo, which is just to the right of Nam Nam Noodle Bar. The main floor at the entrance is the main dining area. There are two other storeys, which are the basement floor and the second floor. The second floor looked similar with the first floor. They are quite cozy and homy. I also loved the artistic basement floor with murals on the wall, which were not being used yet.
I decided to have several of their recommended menu.
Tak Tik Tuk Noodles (IDR 25,000) – I truthfully liked Belly Inc’s version of Mie Tek Tek Goreng. The taste and flavoring was balanced, so it’s not too strong any other way. The noodle was also cooked just right.
Gyutan Don (IDR 85,000) – Yes, I finally found another restaurant that served good Gyutan Don. The beef tongue was juicy and tender. You can ask for additional spicy flavor for the dish. They also gave me chili oil in case I wanted more bang.
Fried Mushroom with Salted Egg (IDR 30,000) – I liked the crispiness and the taste of salted egg on the mushrooms. Didn’t know mushroom and salted egg could go together this well.
Prawn Steak (IDR 100,000) – If you overcooked the prawn, you can get a rather stiff prawn meat. Lucky for me, the prawn was cooked beautifully.
The drink, Incredible Hulk (IDR 38,000), was quite refreshing with mint in it.
Overall, I found Belly Inc to be serving good food at a simple yet cozy space with a homy ambience. I enjoyed all the food served during the dinner. And I hope they will expand their serving area to the basement soon. I can see that it would be suitable for a playroom with several dining tables.
