Well, it's been a long while since I last updated this blog. Do you guys miss me? I know you do (self confident detected, LOL). Honestly, I do miss the life of being a foodie sometimes in my absence, but since I am preparing for a big event in my life, I often declined foodtasting invitations due to conflicting with my schedule to arrange this big event. Now since it's like 90% wrapped up, I'm back in the game, baby! To end this long break let me give you my review of the Blue Terrace at AYANA Midplaza JAKARTA.
My first impression of this restaurant: super pretty!! It's like dining in an indoor flower garden. The interior is fully decorated with flowers like literally everywhere. A very colorful ambiance, making the restaurant looked super chic and beautiful. The seating area is not that many but still spacious enough. There is also a pattiserie and an outdoor smoking area in this restaurant too.
The outdoor smoking area is just instagramable with that big mural on the wall. Mostly I've seen a lot of people took ootd pics there.
All of the menus served at Blue Terrace are healthy menus, meaning that all the ingredients are fresh. They also use healthy ingredients but maintaining the taste to be flavorful. You won't get any bland or tasteless healthy menus here. I can guarantee the taste of the dishes are just so delicious based on my experience tasting their food.
C'mon and see the menus I tried here.
Butternut Squash Soup - IDR 75K++
butternut squash, pumpkin seed, chilli
Green Goddess Bowl - IDR 90K++
chicken salad with kale, spinach, avocado, olive, pine nut seasoned
with nutty sesame Japanese dressing
This one is DA BOMB! It was seriously delicious! I don't normally would go and order salad like it was the first thing in my mind if I'm eating at a restaurant, but this one will surely be on the top of my list if I come again at Blue Terrace. It's awesomely delicious. See, this dish made me write 'delicious' twice already. It's that good for heaven sake! The champ of the bowl has got to be the Japanese salad dressing. It elevated all that fresh and healthy ingredients inside the bowl! Definitely a must order indeed!!!
Chicken and Broccoli - IDR 120K++
roasted chicken with sautéed broccoli, pumpkin seed, goji berries, chili and lemon seasoning
I certainly do love how the chef did all the plating for the dishes. They are gorgeous. Such as this dish. I always say a good dish not only should please the tummy, but also the eyes. Well anyway, this dish itself was also tasty. The chicken was nicely cooked and perfectly seasoned too.
Seared Yellow Fin Tuna - IDR 120K++
pan seared tuna with quinoa salad, carrot, capsicum, beetroot, cherry tomato, quail egg
and candlenut pesto dressing
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! My kudos to the chef for this artistic plating. I love how fresh the yellow fin tuna was and how the pesto dressing made the quinoa salad just became so flavorful.
Japanese Style Spaghetti with Salmon and Spinach, Shoyu Flavor
tossed pasta with pan fried salmon, shoyu, spinach, nori, and hondashi butter
This dish was super tasty, could be number two of my favorite dish here (the Green Goddess Bowl is unbeatable :D). I love the generous portion of the salmon. The pasta is al dente and the seasoning was so soo good! Gotta love those extra nori on the toppings too!
Open Fruitful Sandwich - IDR 75K++
blueberry, raspberry, cranberry, honey, cashew
Green Sounds Good - IDR 85K++
kale, pak choy, kyuri, basil, banana, pineapple, orange, honeydew melon
I usually don't like juice made out from greens, but this one was super nice. Although it had some vegetables inside, but the aftertaste was all fruity and sweet.
Batavia Splash - IDR 70K++
mango, strawberry and passion fruit, signed off by kaffir lime leaf
Overall conclusion, I really enjoyed the healthy dishes at Blue Terrace. Eating healthy doesn't mean it should stop you from eating delicious food, right? All the menus I tried at Blue Terrace were surprisingly good. I recommend it highly for you guys who is in (and maybe considering to be in) a healthy lifestyle.
Keep on chewing!
