Unique Flavor or Unique Interior, You Can Have Them All at Attarine Restaurant
Unique flavor like you never taste it before. Unique interior like you never see it at other restaurant. Attarine Restaurant in Gunawarman, Jakarta gives you all the uniqueness you may never experience before. If you bore with the usual, this is the time to break your routine. The following is what you can get.
On the hot list of casual dining in busy area of Jakarta, we need early reservation or end up waiting for the table. In mealtime, the restaurant was so crowded and somehow noisy. However, the unique country style setting and the antique car in the center of the room increased our expectation. Did I say antique car? Yes, this is actually the main attraction of this restaurant. Right in the center of the room, between the tables, is an old beautiful car parked gracefully.
They open two meal times every day. Lunch started at 11.00 am – 04.00 pm while the dinner started at 06.00pm -11.00 pm. If you come before they open the dinner service, you can wait with companion of drinks and snacks. Don’t worry ; they have a lot of choices.
The menu is generally Western with starters + small bites, vegetables + grains, and main course. However, we can find some touch of Asia is some foods. For instance is the Crispy Half Chicken that is served with carrot and seasoned rice. The rice has the slight taste of Indian cuisine. Cast iron skillet shrimp is one of customer’s favorite. Six medium size shrimp is served with sour and sweet chili sauce. You can taste the warm of chili but it is not enough to call it hot. When we ordered the dish, the waiter recommended flat bread as the best pair for the shrimps. From all, our recommendation is Crispy Chicken Leg. It’s crispy in the outside but tender in on the inside. The seasoning and spices are one of the best in this restaurant. It could meet almost any appetite.
The unique taste is completed with unique drinks. They mix many ingredients to your glass. One of their signature drinks is Jamu Royal. The mix of turmeric, lemon juice, honey, tamarind, carrot, and ginger beer makes you wonder what kind of drink it is. But who knows if you can get addicted to it? Do not forget to try their dessert!
If you are not ready to taste the unique, we recommend roseberry fizz. This refreshing drink gives you the sweet and sour of raspberry with hint of rose, a good closing to clear out your throat!
