Visiting Nomz was one of my 2015 new year resolutions and finally I got the chance to experience this new eatery by Indonesian celebrity chef Arnold Poernomo who is well known as one of the Indonesian Masterchef Judges. The restaurant is nested at Grand Indonesia Mall, a few floors underneath Social House or you can also go through Central Department Store’s Ground Floor to get there. Nomz’s overall look is fresh, youthful and chic, as stated by the look of rough finished-exposed brick walls, red chairs and black and white tiles. The menu here is contemporary with Asian fusion dishes. But what excite me the most was their -cute named- dessert collection. I just couldn’t resist any sugar temptation.
Calamari (IDR 65.000): Lightly battered,fried calamari with garlic, chili and aioli. Salty crunchy squids full of nom noms.
Caesar Salad with bacon (IDR 120.000): Caesar salad lwith sourdough, freshly high quality lettuce, delicious creamy tasty dressing, addictive crispy bacon and boiled egg.
Nomz Bahn Mi (IDR 85.000): Braised pork belly on soft roll, pickled carrot, coriander, cucumber, chili and mayonnaise. Nomz version of this Vietnamese sandwich was a bit off for my liking, maybe it’s because of the Brioche like buns they use, although loving the pork belly stuffing.
Nomz Crazy Rice (IDR 110.000): Jasmine rice, eggs, Wagyu beef, chives and garlic crackers. A wild creation of Indonesian rice dish with sauced fried eggs topped with wagyu beef. The egg itself was bland, but I was particulary in awe with the beef, it’s juicy, melted in your mouth and just excellent.
Prawn Aglio Olio (IDR 95.000): Prawn aglio olio with confit garlic, parsley, chili and chives. Lovely presented and seasoned prawn,the pasta was cooked lovely but needed a pinch of more salt.
Alice in Nom Land (IDR 40.000): Light French style strawberry cheesecake with sweet and sour strawberry layer and crunchy chocolate on top.
Salted Caramel Eclair (IDR 35.000): The eclair was soft, had the right amount of fillings and nice saltiness. Nice touch on the extra chocolate spoon on top.
Baileys Eclair (IDR 38.000): Yummy -melts in your mouth eclair -with a hint of Baileys.
Urban Geisha (IDR 48.000): Vanilla- Berry-Green Tea mousse cake, beautiful and very rich.
Be Merry (IDR 45.000): Raspberry mousse cake with salt caramel in the middle.
