Avec Moi – Thamrin, Jakarta

It was my friend’s birthday that time and she decided to have her birthday treat at Avec Moi restaurant. This was my first visit to Avec Moi after they move near Grand Indonesia (walkable distance from their lobby!). The place was minimalistic yet classy, while still maintaining their signature bunny logo and bunny chairs!

It was a bit of a let down when I saw the escargot was out of its shell. However, the moment I took the first bite, it was absolutely delicious!

The toasted bread was so addicting too! It’s crispy yet not too hard. It’s very fragrant and savory too! The escargot was braised in red wine and sauteed with shimeji mushrooms, which really heightens the flavor of the whole dish.

One of the reasons we picked this place was because one of my friend is a vegetarian, so we try to pick a place that is a bit more classy and offer food for vegetarians. I didn’t get to try this but my friend said that it was quite delicious!

The mashed potatoes were a bit too soft and mushy to my taste, yet it was still nice and creamy. On the other hand, the braised beef in red wine was absolutely stunning! It’s so rich and tender!

This is really out of my usual order, but I’ve read quite a lot of positive review about their pork chops so I decided to give it a try. I am not disappointed! I thought that the pork chop would carry more fat in it (I like lean meat better), but it turned out to be so lean and clean! It was smoked to perfection too, still so tender and fragrant, absolutely mouth watering!

Orange Souffle – IDR68,000++

I would say that their souffle was a success technically, since it rise so beautifully. However, it was a bit too eggy for my taste.

This one was so good that we decided to make a second order! They managed to make 2 perfect molten chocolate lava cake! It wasn’t too sweet because they use dark chocolate – just the way I like it!

We had a very good time in overall. The food was delicious and nicely plated. The service was also fast and friendly. I truly recommend it for various events, be it a casual lunch/dinner, a mini gathering with friends, or even events like bridal shower!
