There’s a fairly new place in town called J-Sparrow. It has successfully garnered quite a lot of folk’s attention, so we decided to choose this place as the venue for our Christmas Lunch session.
It was a very spacious area decorated elegantly. A perfect venue for any occasions!
Prawn Mac N’ Cheese – IDR95,000++
It certainly looks beautiful. It tastes good too, much better than most, but it isn’t the best one out there. I love that the pasta wasn’t overcooked, the cheese was also very good, but I regret that it wasn’t as creamy as I thought it should be. There was also only 4 pieces of prawn, making the IDR95,000++ dish a bit over the top.
Classic Burger – IDR95,000++
It was damn good! The patty was so thick and juicy, you could feel the abundance of meat instead of fat in the patty! I love the healthier option of sweet potato fries too – healthier but just as good. Even the coleslaw was unique as they use golden raisin, just perfect! The portion was also huggee!
Sea bass – 145,000++
To be honest I didn’t try this one since it’s one of my friend’s dish, but she said that it was cooked and marinated very nicely. Although it looks small in size, it was actually quite filling and huge in portion when you start gobbling it down!
Linguine Clam With Garlic Cream Paste – IDR75,000++
I think this was one of the cheapest item on the menu. However, this was also my FAVORITE amongst them all!
I regret that the insides of the clam was too tiny, but in overall it was EXCELLENT! The pasta’s consistency was very nicely done – cooked at al dente evenly throughout. The clammy fragrant was also not too overwhelming and the creaminess level was just right. MUST HAVE!
Another MUST HAVE item is the Nasi Campur Sparrow’s (IDR95,000++)! I regret that I didn’t get to take a picture of it since it was a friend’s dish, but it was ABSOLUTELY LOVELY and HUGE IN SIZE!
The Nasi Uduk was so tender and flavorful, all the other side dishes was cooked and marinated perfectly. Another worth it and must try item!
Shipwreck – IDR65,000++
This is THE dessert that successfully sky-rocketed J Sparrow’s name! Plated like the most delicious shipwreck ever, it’s actually cheesy chocolate brownies with almond crumble, crisp almond tuille, and topped with mint chocolate sauce.
Every single component was DELICIOUS, complimenting each other perfectly. The ‘mint’ in the mint chocolate sauce was also not overwhelming, just faint and subtle but it’s definitely there. MUST TRY DESSERT!
Overall none of the dishes served was disappointing. In fact, everything tasted quite delicious. Some were even beyond expectations! Given the portion size, price, and ambiance of the place, it’s definitely worth it. Recommended for any occasions!
