Commune Cafe & Bistro - Senopati [CLOSED]

11/14/2013 Soya Yanagawa 6 Comments

Is a creative warehouse by a fleet of lifestyle enthusiasts.
We run on the whiff of coffee and the lines of dining chairs.
The smell of wood on our furniture and the tunes of our music.
The dream of our craft and the tang of butter on our steak.

But it's hardly just about our coffee, our food or our interior.
We're passionate about the whole picture, the big picture

To separate these elements is scandalous
A simple idea where the experience is greater than the sum of its individual Piece.
A radical thought that combining pleasure can only lead to more pleasure.
We come together to bridge the greatest puzzle in history -
The love affair of people and ideas.

What we offer doesn't stop outside these glass doors,
But do step in and watch creativity conceptualize and evolve.
We run by one rule; there is no such thing as indulgence.
Pleasure is a need.

Gather here, gather together.

Who would have thought one of my recommended places in Jakarta is actually starts their business as a furniture store? Located on the second floor of a building in Senopati Area, Commune Cafe & Bistro is a promising place for you to have a wonderful dining experience with your love one or even with your group of friends. Just like I said, Commune Cafe & Bistro starts their business from a furniture business before they come into culinary business. They just thought that they have to fill the second floor for other business. 

Finally, they have decided to open Commune Cafe & Bistro, a chic and lovely bistro that serve delicacies with reasonable price and compatible portion.

Designed and accessorized by Chris Zikif and Julian Koh, Commune Cafe & Bistro's environment makes me want to stay there as long as I can. Their attention to detail bears a beautiful yet comfortable atmosphere. To be honest, I really like their paintings on walls, it makes Commune Cafe & Bistro look so fresh yet elegant.

Commune Cafe & Bistro provides private rooms for those who don't smoke. You should be notice about a corner that very suitable for you to have romantic moments with your love one. But, if you are a smoker, you can sit on the center of the room with a comfy black sofa (ugh.. I really love that sofa).

Commune Cafe & Bistro serve a diverse bistro dish, but they also have a various drink menu options. You can choose wisely to compliment the dish with a glass of wine, enliven the atmosphere with cocktail, or relaxed your day with a cup of tea or mocktail.

Caesar Salad IDR 55,000
Fresh Romaine lettuce, homemade croutons, parmesan cheese, shredded chicken tossed with homemade Caesar dressing.

I have to admit it, I actually easily satisfied. If I found a simple dish but made with perfection, it will makes my heard soar. Just like the Caesar Salad from Commune Cafe & Bistro. I really love their homemade caesar dressing. It perfectly combines all the ingredients. You will be indulged by their crunchy fresh and beautiful dressing. Salute!

Dory L'Orange IDR 42,000
Deep fried dory fillet with tangy orange and white wine sauce.

This golden deep fried dory have wonderful textures. Nice and crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. They use vinegar for the salad sauce and white wine sauce for the dory. The orange and white wine sauce was EPIC!

The white wine sauce is rather sweet, but it compliments the dory. Indeed, combined with the sour sauce from the salad, this dish has superb flavors. Sweet, sour and savory combined beautifully so you can taste the sublime symphony on your mouth. This is the "must try #1" on Commune Cafe & Bistro.

Croque Monsieur IDR 60,000
Classic French grilled cheese and ham sandwich, said to be an accidental recipe by a French factory worker who placed his metal lunch box on a hot engine surface.

Commune Cafe & Bistro know how to indulge their customer. Once again, from a simple dish like Croque Monsieur, Commune Cafe & Bistro successfully makes your mouth will not stop chewing until it's done.

A croque monsieur is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with béchamel sauce. It originated in French cafés and bars as a quick snack. Typically, Emmental or Gruyère cheese is used. The name is based on the verb croquer ("to crunch") and the word monsieur ("mister").

Oh, every sandwich dishes, Commune Cafe & Bistro served it with mesclun salad (a salad mix of assorted small, young salad leaves).

Meatball Sub IDR 60,000
Meat ball belongs in a sub, still homemade just in between the French baguette topped with melted mozzarella cheese.

Well, when I went to this place, everybody tells me that I have to try their Meatball Sub. It is indeed very delicious! Commune Cafe & Bistro is so generous by giving the dish with abundant mozzarella cheese. Their baguette is superb and the meat ball is fantastic.

Roast Chicken IDR 180,000
Oven roast whole spring chicken (± 600 gr) with creamy djon sauce.
* Due the cooking procedures of these communal dishes, please allow a waiting time 20-30 minutes. 

OK, This is the "Must Try #2". Indeed, we have to wait for 20 to 30 minutes for this roast chicken. But to tell you the truth, it is worth to wait! The chicken is so tender and juicy. I really love the texture, the flavor and the aroma. It is hard to describe it with words, but the djon sauce makes it perfect.

~~ ooo ~~

Overall, with indulging environment, breath taking dishes, and easy listening songs will makes your dining experience become memorable.

For closure, I will attach the lovely video that i have found on youtube. Hope you like it like I do

Have a great day and Godspeed!
