That one Saturday afternoon, I was doing some errands in Pondok Indah area when I found this restaurant, located almost hidden in Pondok Indah Plaza 2.
You can instantly tell that DON! DON! is a Japanese restaurant just by looking at its door. They placed a menu board outside the door so potential guests can have a peek at their menu, and that’s exactly what I did.
A couple of months back, there’s a viral video floating around my Facebook timeline about a new concept of McDonalds, called McDonalds Next. Located in Hong Kong, it was said to be the first in the world, one of a kind.. and this is the kind of news that would excite my brother and I 😀
So it’s very much predictable that we put McDonalds Next in our itinerary. It is located in Admiralty MTR station, which is just 1 station away from Wan Chai – where we were staying. So, we went there for dinner on our second day.
Located conveniently in Jalan Wijaya 1, Jakarta Selatan – Typology offers you not only a place to eat but also to work and have fun. This restaurant is considerably new, just opened mid 2014. I was there at the end of last year to meet with some friends, so this post is a bit overdue 😉
When I first got there, I was greeted by this long table which I’m going to call the meeting table. This area is perfect for having discussions, from silly discussions to discussing holiday itinerary to start up meeting.
Then there’s also the bar area with some tables if you prefer to be with smaller group.
My choice that day was the comfy sofa, where I spent the afternoon having lunch with my friends and followed by working some articles for the blog.
Now, let’s talk about the food! What do they serve? Well, they basically serve all kinds of comfort food, the easy one, nothing too fancy (but tastes good, of course!). They have a wide range of food, from the appetiser, snacks, until main course to satisfy your tummy. What did I order that time? Beef Tongue Rice with Teriyaki sauce. I’d prefer to not have the tomato sauce but it still tasted reaalllyy good. You know how Beef Tongue is sort of the trend in town and a lot of restaurants are serving it, but some don’t actually know how to serve proper Beef Tongue? No worries, Typology is the opposite. The dish may look simple but not the taste 🙂
For you sweet tooth out there, Typology also have a selection of desserts and drinks, all non – alcoholic. Rumor has it I have to try their Oreo and Beng – Beng Smoothies. Definitely will come back for that!
Oh btw, they have free high speed wi-fi and electrical sockets can be easily found in between tables. No need to worry if your gadgets need to be charged. Now I’m gonna close my short review with an inspiring mural on the wall I found there, nice isn’t it?
