Elbow Room Gastro Pub @Kemang

I always love hunting for breakfast on Sundays (my only day off in a week). This time round, I laboured my curious tummy at Elbow Room, Kemang, which opens from 8am (on Sundays only) to serve breakfast. The breakfast items are quite standard, there are choices of Indonesian or Western style breakfast at surprisingly reasonable price (range from IDR 18,000 - 55,000).

As I came quite late, it couldn't exactly be considered as breakfast hours, I decided to try the regular menu. To be honest, I didn't dare to put much expectations on the food served at a place that calls itself a gastro-pub. However, I was pleased to be proven wrong by the delicious food I had here. I particularly loved the Chocolate Fondant, which is prepared (baked) when you order it, hence it took longer than usual to serve this dessert. The warm chocolate lava oozing out of the warm cake and it goes into your drooling mouth, together with the vanilla ice cream to create a delish combo! Nothing better than a perfect dessert to end a sumptuous meal.

Here are some quick facts about Elbow Room:
  • Good news for pork lovers, The Signature Crispy Pork Belly is said to be voted the best dish here.
  • Enjoy 20% off food items on Sundays for Breakfast
  • Live band performs on the second floor on weekends.
  • Happy Hour (Buy 1 Get 1 Free) applies from Mon - Fri: 4 - 8PM
  • "Surprising Lunch Package" for only IDR 39,000++: you can choose 1 Main (off the selected items), 1 Dessert & 1 Beverage.
  • 25% discount for Bank Mega credit card holders.
  • Besides dine-in, Elbow Room also caters to: delivery orders, take aways, party catering, even "Arisan"
Price range for food: IDR 26,000 - 250,000 (Appetizers to Dessert)

Verdict: love the quiet Sunday morning here, enjoyed the good food & coffee, attentive service and pleasant atmosphere, appropriate music and quirky interior. I shall rate it 4 out of 5. ;)
