grandma stella's strawberry elixir.
No stranger to great restaurant concepts, Ismaya group emphasize on everything homemade at Kitchenette. The feel of the restaurant is pretty much enjoying your food next to your own kitchen pantry. I really enjoyed the food and ambiance but hate the waiting lines especially at peak hours. As expected, the scene was pretty packed with socialites and Plaza Indonesia's power shoppers which stretch out their stays for hours. 

we love their nacho potato chips appetizer with cheese, chili, and jalapeno. crisp, cheesy, and flavorful! 
their specialties are gallete - savory buckwheat thin crepe. Antoine-Ego - filled with ham, cheese, mushroom caviar with truffle oil, this dish failed to bring it to the table. the crepe is too thin, I need more kick of flavor other than the truffle aroma.

the chicken is well seasoned and cooked perfectly. 
mama mia burger. juicy ground patty with egg, caramelized sweet onions, and specialty sauce. *drool* not only fancy on the eyes, this burger is pretty much BOMB. burst of sweet, tangy, melt-in-your-mouth kinda feel.

apple pie crumble. mediocre in taste, I expected the pie crumbs to be more crispy. 

For such charming layout and concept, I feel some of the dishes could have stronger consistency. Nevertheless, I'm not giving up on Kitchenette, the extensive range of menu still gives me hope to find more great meals.
