Nosh Cafe is a cafe that has just opened less than 6 months ago. A very nice and cozy French-American themed cafe serving such food with a slight Asian twist.
The place was very nice and chic. Brick walls, marbles, and white and blue color dominate the place. The smoking room area have a touch of greens all around, which makes it look bright and fresh.
I came for an early dinner, but because we haven’t had much for lunch, we could take our time and try some more of their main menus.
Southern Style Buttermilk Chicken – IDR70,000++
Don’t underestimate this simple dish. It’s definitely a simple yet divine dish! The fried chicken was very tender and crispy, the mashed potatoes was also creamy (although a bit more seasoning to the potatoes would really made the day!). The portion size was also just right for one serving. No wonder this is one of their favorite item on the menu!
Prawn Sambal Cream Pasta – IDR65,000++
I thought this would be kind of a weird combination because I didn’t like sambal (chilli sauce) with cream, yet this dish fail to disappoint me! It was actually the first time I’ve heard my dad sampled pasta and immediately say: This is delicious!
The prawn was quite big in size and fresh too. The pasta was cooked al dente, very savory and creamy, everything was measured perfectly at the right level.
Oxtail Wellington – IDR98,000
This is the signature item on their menu, and I must say that you should definitely try this dish if you come visit! It’s very unique since I’ve never found a similar dish at similar restaurants before.
It consists of a slow-cooked oxtail mixed and baked together with fragrant tumeric rice inside a big mug, topped with crispy and flakky puff pastry – similar to those you found on top of Zuppa soup.
It was very fragrant and savory, the oxtail was so tender, rich, and flavorful. What’s more, the puff pastry was also cooked to perfection! It’s almost like a combination of Nasi Briyani & Nasi Kuning with a slight western twist.
Overall I really think that I’ve either made perfect menu choices, or the food served over Nosh was just always this good! The waiting time wasn’t too long, the portion size was just right. It’s perfect for a casual dinner date, hanging out with friends, or your family!
