Hot dog is a favorite comfort food of New Yorkers and Pepin & Malloy Hot Dog offers the Big Apple’s comfort food staple with the addition of their own refined touch. Located in the always busy Cilandak Town Square, the Circus themed eatery has colorful and fun interior design. Like many other fast food restaurants, you’ll have to go to the cashier to order and pay first, before you sit. Besides hot dogs, there are also burgers and sandwiches in the menu. All the Meal menus include Dutch Fat Fries and drinks of your choice.
One of their few signature dishes is the Chili Cheese Hot dog (IDR 55.000): Beef sausage in between homemade hot dog bun and topped with Chili, cheese sauce and chopped onion. FYI Chili is a Spanish spicy stew containing ground beef, chili peppers, tomatoes, garlic, beans, onions, and cumin. It’s hard to find the right taste for this Mexican American food and Peppin & Malloy’s is one of the best in Jakarta (in my opinion of course). The chili has the right flavor and fragrant; the balance of the beef and the beans are perfect.
Honey Slaw Hot dog Meal (IDR 75.000): The beef sausage is juicy, meaty and full and flavor. The bun is fluffy and delicious too, and the sweet and creamy Honey Mustard coleslaw topping works well with the salty sausage. Pepin and Malloy’s Dutch Fat Fries is also worth the mention, it’s really buttery and crunchy, I couldn’t get enough of them.
Philly Cheese Dog Meal (IDR 90.000): Hot dog with beef slices, melted cheese, onions and paprika. Good quality of beef, delicious springy cheese on top.
Betawi Burger Me (IDR 90.000): Burger with Tahu telor Omelette/Tofu and Egg fried Omelette, Sambal Hijau/Indonesian green chili paste, Crispy Tempe/Fried soybean cake, Rendang suir/Shredded Spicy Padang beef with coconut milk and mixed spices, and Beef Rendang Patty. A creative version of both American burger and Indonesian flavors. The beef patty has flavor but a little dry for my taste. The toppings surprisingly works well with the burger,and fulfilling too.
After the yummy lunch, I’m quite addicted to Pepin and Malloy’s hot dogs, and would definitely coming back for more, especially for the rest of untried menus.
