[Jakarta] Arasseo - Soju Bar and Eatery, Senopati

Arasseo, Soju Bar and Eatery is situated on the same area as Pao Pao Senopati. Uniquely these two restaurants have totally opposite ambiance, while Pao Pao tend to has darker room, Arasseo come out with totally bright room with white domination. Well actually, on last Friday I came to this restaurant by accident when i'm looking for Pao Pao. I fell in love with its interior on the first sight.

I love how Arasseo set its dining room with clean, simple and bright interior. The white domination came from ceiling to the wall, and there were some bricks accent inside. While I was looking at the texture on their walls, it reminded me of igloo, the ice house. I will just write a quick review, seeing that I only did a quick dinner and just ordered a few menus.

I came to this restaurant, greeted, and escorted to our table by their friendly staff. She handed me their menu and started to explain about Arasseo. As usual we were asking about their recommendation and after a long discussion with Kak Mira my accompany tonight, we ordered Ojingeo Bokum, Tobiko egg roll and Green tea bingsu as our dessert. After we ordered food, staff will give us complimentary dishes such as kimchi and cassava chips. Since I didn't bring my camera, so I just took a photo using my phone (and i'm really sorry about the resolution). Most of the picture are belong to Kak Mira.

Ojingeo Bokum (Stir fried squid in spicy sauce) - 90K

You can adjust your spicy level on this menu, I tried the less spicy level as I always do. 

Tobiko Egg Roll (Egg roll with fish roe and cheese filling) - 52K

This is my fave dish so far, yes I prefer to have savory dish than sweet LOL. The egg roll was so fluffy, combined with cheese, mayonnaise and fish roe. Try to add chili sauce as dipping sauce to make it even better.  

Green Tea Bingsu - 45K

This matcha (green tea) ice cream was really good and not too sweet, they also added crunchy corn flakes on the top of bingsu not to mention the sweet and tender read bean.

Mocktail Strawberry - 50K

This was actually ordered by kak Mira, I just take a sip to taste it. It has sweet and sour flavor, I like it because its soda flavor didn't overpowering and I still can tasted chopped fresh strawberries in this drink, so refreshing :). 

Overall I had a pleasant dinner at Arasseo, nonetheless somehow I felt it quite pricey. But since it was a great dining ambiance and topnotch service by the staff, I think it should be ok. Next time I will visit Arasseo to try their Cheese Chicken and Dakgangjeong (Fried chicken with sweet and spicy sauce).
