A couple weeks ago, I had a meeting at Dijan's restaurant.
The restaurant is an old Dutch colonial house.
It supposedly to be a restaurant that serves authentic Dutch food but I guess they don't really stick to the theme since they also offer Italian, American and Indonesian food in their menu.
The restaurant is full air-conditioner but unfortunately, the customers can smoke inside the restaurant. It's quite disturbing for other customers who are non-smoker.
Poffertjes - Rp. 35.000
I enjoyed eating these small coin size of fluffy pancakes with powder sugar and butter.
Bitterbalen - Rp. 35.000
Dutch croquettes rolled into balls.
I like it but it was very salty.
Going to a Dutch restaurant, then ordering Italian pastas is the biggest mistake ever!!!
Fettucini Carbonara - Rp. 45.000
The cream sauce tasted totally bland. Luckily, there were the smoked beef and parmesan cheese but still, you need to add salt on it.
Spaghetti Bolognese - Rp. 45.000
My spaghetti Bolognese was another disappointment. The spaghetti was soggy.
And, seriously, I believe that instead of cooking the Bolognese sauce by their own, they've put the ready to use "La Fonte - Bolognese pasta sauce" on the spaghetti. This product is made in Indonesia. It tasted very sweet like sugar sauce.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio - Rp. 45.000
Also, tad bland. Well, you can taste that the spaghetti got a hot flavor. Only the slice of smoke beef got the savory taste, not the, spaghetti, the mushroom nor the paprika. Again, pass the salt, please!
Nasi Goreng - Rp. 40.000This fried rice with slice smoked beef, pickles, fried egg and a cracker on the top was actually decent but for the price, hardly worthy!
All price are subject to 10% government tax and 6% service charge
Current currency: 1 USD = Rp. 9.650
