Commune Bistro & Grill (The Foundry 8, Jakarta)

Commune Bistro & Grill

Commune Bistro & Grill is a restaurant with industrial concept that aimed to offer wide range of high value comfort food. It is located at The Foundry 8 one of the renowned places to hangout. Apparently, they have established their restaurant for more than 2 years, but they just moved to The Foundry 8 in November 2014. The restaurant is not really hard to find, it is located near Pacific Place mall. (just follow the map at the end of this post and you won't get lost!)

VIP Room

The restaurant is quite big and I reckon they can accommodate up to 80 people. They also have VIP room as shown in the picture above. The interior is mostly dominated with industrial-style things such as those containers. Apparently, guests are free to smoke everywhere inside the restaurant. This might be quite unfavorable for non-smokers (like me) as it might be really hard to breath with those smoke lingering everywhere.

Let's get started with their food!

Chili Cheese Fries (IDR 60k)
Chili Cheese Fries

Chili Cheese Fries is basically potato wedges drenched with melted mozzarella cheese and chili sauce served in a hot plate. As a potato lover, I have to say this dish was heavenly delicious as the potato wedges is perfectly crispy on the outside and soft inside. The melted mozzarella cheese was pretty generously given as well and it made a perfect pairing with the potato wedges! (yum!)

Vegetable Roll (IDR 55k)
Vegetable Roll

Vegetable roll consists of roasted vegetables, bean sprout, pickles and onion jam served with sweet chili dip. It tasted pretty decent as the filling were pretty generous although I felt that the roasted aroma from the roasted vegetables was kinda overpowering the whole dishes.

Pork Two Ways (IDR 70k)
Pork Two Ways

Pork Two Ways consists of Chinese BBQ style pork and crispy roasted pork belly served with homemade pickles and sous-vide egg with tea infused soy sauce. Every rice bowl is served with selection of rice such as white rice, brown rice and pilaf rice. It tasted pretty delicious as I love how they nicely marinated the pork!

Chicken & Eggs
Chicken & Eggs

Chicken & Eggs consists of crispy fried chicken bits glazed with mushroom and oyster sauce served with scrambled egg and crispy mustard glazed chicken skin. I chose this one to be served with pilaf rice which appeared to be super amazing. The chicken was tender and perfectly seasoned although it was a little bit salty but still okay for me. The pilaf rice was also wonderful as it was fragrant and flavorful. Overall, it tasted super duper heavenly delicious and I would not mind to order this again on my next visit!

Nasi Goreng (IDR 65k)
Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng consists of beef curry-spiced fried rice served with sunny side up and Balinese chicken satay (sate lilit). I didn't get to try this one but I can tell the presentation of this dish was pretty and I love the idea to put sate lilit as side dish!

Rice Bowl

Overall, I had a great dinner at Commune Bistro & Grill, the food they served tasted pretty delicious, the service was good and the place is nice. (although it will be nicer without smoke) I have to say that they have advantage to survive in these days food and beverage industry as they offer many selections of menu and most of them tasted delicious and great. It will be great if they could maintain the consistency and enhanced their menu in the future. Thanks for having me and best of luck for Commune Bistro & Grill!
