Carnivor Barbecue Specialist (Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta)

Carnivor

It's holiday and it's time to meet up with friends to chit-chat and eat a great food. That day, we decided to go to Pantai Indah Kapuk which is well-known as one of the famous dining spot in North Jakarta. We decided to have a good lunch at Carnivor that day, actually we have already planned to go to another restaurant but since the restaurant is closed due to Eid-al-Fitr holiday, we changed our plan and decided on Carnivor. Located near the super crowded Sumoboo!, I bet you won't have any difficulties in finding the restaurant.

The restaurant itself is quite big and I reckon they can accommodate up to 100 people. The decoration is mostly filled with vintage things such as the old fashioned gramophone which you can see in the picture above. I love the concept of the restaurant as it gives off cozy and homey atmosphere. It was quite crowded at that time because it was lunch time, but thankfully I still managed to get a nice place with good lighting.

Let's talk about the food!

Sizzling Spicy Pork Belly (IDR 45k)

This menu was served in hotplate and it was really sizzling the time it was served. The pork belly was generously given and I love how they seasoned the rice. It was not really spicy and it tasted pretty delicious for me.

Chicken Cordon Bleu (IDR 68k)
Chicken Cordon Bleu

The Chicken Cordon Bleu was drenched in cheese sauce and served along with BBQ sauce, salad and french fries (you can choose whether you would like it to be served with french fries or mashed potato). The chicken was breaded nicely and it was crispy, tender and moreish. The cheese sauce was heavenly good and the french fries tasted pretty decent.

Rosemary Chicken (IDR 80.5k)

(Oh my, look at those huge chicken!)

The Rosemary Chicken was unexpectedly huge, you can see it in the picture, they cut the whole chicken in half and it was served along with french fries, salad and BBQ sauce. The chicken tasted a bit bland for my liking and I guess it would be better if they put stronger seasoning to the chicken. I believe this menu can be shared for two people, except you are extremely hungry and would like to have this huge chicken by yourself!

Smoked Pork Chop (IDR 98k)

The Smoked Pork Chop served along with mashed potato and salad. The meat was juicy, tender and a bit chewy. I found this menu tasted pretty decent, but I believe stronger seasoning will make this menu even better.

California Chicken Wings (IDR 41.5k)

The California Chicken Wings was served in a bucket (unique!) and it was drenched with BBQ sauce. The chicken wings was not as crispy as what I expected, but it tasted pretty decent, it tasted better with mayonnaise sauce.

Bacon and Egg Pizza (IDR 55k)

The toppings consist of slices of bacon, mushroom, hard boiled egg and mozzarella cheese. The crust was thin and crispy (yay!). I found this pizza tasted pretty delicious, though I won't complain if they added more cheese and bacon to this pizza!

The Swedish Meatball Pasta is a spaghetti topped with mushroom, sauce, and meatball. I didn't get to try the Swedish Meatball Pasta, but according to my friends, the pasta was okay and the meatballs was superb.

Red Dragon Squash (IDR 18k)

The Red Dragon Squash was one of the unique drinks that I ever had, it was a red dragon flavored squash. I never tasted this kind of drink before and I found it tasted pretty delicious and refreshing.

Strawly (IDR 28k)
Strawly

Strawly is a smoothies made from mixture of strawberry and lychee and I was glad to know that they served it along with the real strawberries and lychees. The smoothies was to watery in my opinion, but it still tasted pretty decent and refreshing for a hot day.

Avocado Passion (IDR 29k)
Avocado Passion

The Avocado Passion is made from avocado fruit and milk. It was not to sweet and had a strong avocado flavor, but I felt it was too watery and it would be great if it was less watery.

Be Passion (IDR 28k)
Be Passion

The Be Passion is a combination of passion fruit and orange. I love how they include the real passion fruit inside the drink, it was a bit tangy, sour and absolutely refreshing for a hot day

Overall, I enjoyed my visit to Carnivor, the food they served was pretty decent and some were super delicious, the service was friendly and I love the ambiance of the restaurant. They also provide many selections of food and drink and I believe it become one of their competitive advantages to survive in the industry. I would love to comeback to Carnivor to try other menu(s) that I haven't tried!
