Union was just newly opened when my gal suggested a new place to eat at Plaza Senayan, so we got no idea how the place and food was. But I immediately fell in luv with its open folding glass door facing the courtyard and with its glass roof extension on top of our seating row.
Then on the opposite area, the wall was painted in maroon-ish colour with various photo frames adorned the wall and the half-circular seats. It really has the NYC vibe!
We came in from Sogo side entrance which led us to the Bakery Counter and turned out the main door was the one from the courtyard. It was 4.30-ish but table was all occupied and we didn’t mind waiting at the bar counter, which at that time, one thing that I thought was a sore eyes was the plasma TV mounted on the wall, I felt it shouldn’t be there. Fortunately, 6 months later when I went for 2nd time, no more TV there.
On the bar, the drink menu certainly quite extensive, my gals chose the Mango Martini and she swore it was the best martini she ever tasted. Waited for around 10 mins and we got the table by the courtyard, yay!
Asked the waiting staff who were very polite, soft spoken and friendly about the recommended menu, he was able to recommend trying the Steak to go with which sauce. And looked like the menu may changed from month to month, not all but some items (great idea though)
I agreed the steak was great! It was juicy and tender with great sides to go along with. I was keen on trying the cakes since we saw it on our entrance and looked so pretty.
At that time, it was recommended the Red Velvet and I got no idea what was it, but it had to wait for few mins as it was being made from scratch due to its popularity. But when I saw they got the cheese cake with shredded cheese on top, I must Ordered it! It was soft, fluffy and cheesy indeed and it was big and tall slice, not some tiny short slice.
Didn't take many photos at that time...but aldy said to myself to return next time.
I made a promise to myself that will go to Union everytime I visits Jakarta…
Luv the glass ceiling extension
Mango Jalapeno Martini which was highly liked by my gals...
