In Indonesia there is one brand that has been a trademark for juices. For decades, it has specialized in serving fresh and healthy juices. And now it has about 40 variants of healthy juices to order. Quite plenty, right?
The name of the brand, and the restaurant is MM Juice.
For this opportunity I came to the outlet located at Food Hall Mall Kelapa Gading 3. MM Juice itself has two outlets at Mall Kelapa Gading. The other is at the food court on level 3 and it only sells siomay and juices, while the one I visited at Food Hall has a complete set menus.
Actually this was not my first visit here. It was about five months ago that I first came here and as I recall I wasn't pretty pleased with the service. So let's see if that has changed now.
And as coincidence, I was also just finished doing grocery shoppings there that day.
Have I mentioned that the service at my previous visit was a disappointment? Well, it seemed to better that day. No more dirty tables left uncleaned, and no more long waited service. Although they forgot about my take away order that day. But it's not a big problem though. At first, I hesitated to dine there considering my previous unpleasing memories about the service, but I saw quite a lot of new faces (the waiters) so I thought to give it another try.
Besides juices, MM Juice also served meals. Heavy and light. Most of them are Indonesian food. Here are the few which I tried that day.
Kentang/Kol/Pare/Tahu/Telor - Rp. 4.546/pc.
Siomay Ikan/Siomay Udang - Rp. 7.273/pc.
Siomay Kembang Tahu - Rp. 7.273/pc.
Pempek Kapal Selam - Rp. 24.546.
Kwetiaw Goreng Seafood - Rp. 36.364.
It needs more seasoning (salt primarily). Although the noodle was cooked nicely but the flavors weren't there. And since it came in such a big portion, it's just going to be a waste if customers couldn't finish it because of the bland taste. And for my consideration, the seafood fillings were just not much and it didn't balance the pricey price tag.
Tongseng Kambing (Large) - Rp. 50.000.
Luckily the mutton was pretty generous inside. And it was cooked perfectly. No weird, tangy smell coming out of the mutton, and the meat was nice and tender.
The soup however in my opinion lacks a bit of punch. I was hoping for bold flavors to be delivered and yet this one tasted pretty mild for my palate. The level of the spiciness was alright though.
Nasi Putih - Rp. 7.273.
Moving on to the beverages. There's no point coming here if you don't order those legendary juices. So here are some that I ordered.
Apple Juice - Rp. 20.000.
Mango Juice - Rp. 22.728.
Overall conclusion, this restaurant has got its slips and misses in reference to some menus I ordered. But the rest of them tasted pretty good and not disappointing.
In the end I have to compare the amount of good dishes and the bad ones to decide on the rating for this restaurant. And luckily there were more satisfying dish than those that were just total disappointments.
The service has indeed improved ever since my last visit here. The prices are fair and some menus can be considered to be affordable.
A must order menu has got to be the juices, they're so fresh and healthy.
So looking for a place with good food and healthy juices to pick? This spot is perfect for you.
Keep on chewing!
