Jakarta : Food Tasting : Turkish Royal Iftar at La Moda

Wanna try authentic Turkish food for breakfasting? You can have it at La Moda !

From 28th June until 8th July 2015, you can savor authentic Turkish dishes at La Moda. Why I say authentic? It's because they're having guest chef, Chef Hilmi Caliskan from Sheraton Hotel Ankara and Lugal, Turkey.

As you know, La Moda has been nestled at Plaza Indonesia for long-long time ago. Right now, La Moda has been revamped, and it's fresh, vibrant and fashion forward !

The 'Royal Iftar' started with some Kolak for the Tajil. I have to say, it's really a nice Kolak ! Not too sweet and a bit savory because of the coconut milk.

And then some Turkish appetizer, Yayla Corbasi - IDR 60.000,-. This is some red beans with tomato based soups, serves cold. It was light and refreshing.

Coban Salatasi - IDR 60.000,-. Classic Turkish Salad that consist of tomatoes, paprika, onion and parsley. The taste was very natural and classic.

Talas Boregi - IDR 75.000,-. This is a puff pastry consist of cheese. The puff pastry was nice and light, and I love the cheese inside. Maybe it's ricotta?

Next to Main course, Kadinbudu Kofte - IDR 105.000,-. This was made nicely! It has nice crispy crust outside, and savory meats inside. Love this !

Hunkar Begendi - IDR 135.000,-. This is Veal stew served with Mashed Eggplants. I don't know why the veal was has this distinctive smell of Lamb, which I found quite disturbing. But yeah,  I kinda hooked with the mashed eggplants. It was yum!

Tas Kebabi - IDR 110.000,-. This is called for ' a bowl kebab'. I don't know, but I think dish wasn't suits my palate well. 

Balik Izgara - IDR 180.000,-. I don't know what kind of fish that they used, but it's a bit overcooked, chewy and not tasted fresh. But I love the Caper Lemon sauce though.

For the dessert, Ekerpare - IDR 75.000,-. This was soft pastry soaked in syrup. I love the soft and crumbly texture, but, it was too sweet to my palate.

Baklava - IDR 75.000,-. Baklava is my favorite Turkish sweet, but, too bad this one also soaked in syrup. I was kind of hoping the crispy texture though.
