Food Tasting : Press Lunch at SKYE

SKYE already well known as the hippest sky-dining place in Jakarta. They continuing to bring something new for the customer, and this time, it's the NEW Executive Chef from Auckland, Hamish Lindsay. That day several media and bloggers are invited to try the new menu by chef Hamish. Without further ado, shall we start the lunch ?

The view !

We start our lunch with Sesame Chicken Salad - IDR 65.000,-. With Crispy soy chicken, lettuce, baby corn and sesame mustard dressing, it turns out pretty refreshing. But the chicken was a bit chewy and dry.

Next appetizer is Double Baked Cheese Souffle - IDR 85.000,-. Oh my, I would love to go back to Skye and have this again! The presentation wasn't like the usual souffle, but the texture was still the same. Fluffy, cheesy, creamy but balanced with the Heirloom Tomatoes, Olive Salsa and Basil. Yum!

Last Appetizer is Beef and Foie Gras Carpaccio - IDR 140.000,-. This one also served with Parmesan Mousse, Rocket, Truffle Oil, Capers and Blackpepper Tuile. I love how the beef just melts in your mouth, but I think it's lacking of the foie gras taste.

Next we move to Main Course, Tagliolini Nero Al Frutti Di Mare - IDR 150.000,-. It was cooked al dente, and tasted light with the seafood and tomato sauce.

Then, Thai Stir Fried Seafood - IDR 145.000,-. This one has nice textures and not-too-heavy dish.

200gr Black Angus Tenderloin - IDR 390.000,-. The meat was very tender, and cooked just how the way I love it, medium well! The truffle potato puree and and crispy string potatoes added the texture and flavor to this dish. Yum!

Seabass Polonaise - IDR 160.000,-. The seabass was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and soft meats. I love how they add almonds for the sides, because it gives a nice texture. The one thing that I don't like is the breadcrumbs, because it tasted a bit weird.

And my most favorite section, dessert ! First is  Peanut Butter Pannacotta -IDR 60.000,-. OMG, this is one clever combo that have been ever made. At the first time I'm pretty skeptical, but it turns out pretty good! You really can taste the peanut butter on the pannacotta, but the creaminess was balanced with sourness from the Strawberry and Thyme Granita. Yum!

Mango Cheesecake with Coconut Whipped Cream, Passion Fruit Sauce and Coconut Tuile - IDR 65.000,-. This cheesecake was pretty light in texture, but I love the coconut taste on the base and mix it up with the passion fruit sauce. Again, it's a harmony in your mouth when sweet and sour dancing together in your tastebuds. 

The last one is White Chocolate and Sticky Date Pudding - IDR 75.000,-. I love the moist date pudding and pairing with the 'Russian Ice Cream' was really good.
