The bistro for all individual taste, where appetite and fun are melting together simultaneously.
Luciole Bistro. Another new concept of restaurants have been introduced for the Jakartans nowadays. Many new restaurant are opening but only some becoming 'hype'. Luciole means fireflies in French and the concept of this restaurant is to give soft light beauty in the details that exaggerates the existence of its luminescent phenomenon to the ambience. From its name, we can conclude that it typically serves French or Italian food as the main dishes. However, it also serves Japanese food and other Asian favorites such as Salmon Teriyaki, Salmon Crackers, that also become one of the favorite dishes that should be tried.
Before coming to this restaurant, I have seen many reviews about the food and other dishes that are most preferable. By looking at the reviews and feedbacks from the previous visitors, it seems that there are 3 dishes that attracted my munching-instinct.
The first one is the appetizer, Salmon Cracker as the starter.
Salmon Cracker. It looks like a fried spring-roll but with a little twist for the fillings. These crackers consist of chunks of salmons and vegetable combinations, then deep-fried for the cooking process. Yummy! I really love this extraordinary crackers and the portion is enough to share for 2-3 people.
Now, let's jump into the main course, which is Risotto and Spaghetti
Risotto. errrr... I forgot the formal name of this dish, all I could recall is it is a plate of risotto. Personally, I never recommende myself to eating risotto as my main dish as I do not really like eating rice for my meal. But this risotto is somehow a little bit overcooked and the seafood essence is quite strong and I do not like this dish at all. Not highly recommended, but for any risotto lovers, well, you might want to try. After all, taste is just a personal perception, and you might disagree with me :)
Lobster Thermidor Spaghetti. Creamy al dente spaghetti that has a light cream taste for the flavor. It is delicious and I think that the creamy level is accepted (as I do not really like creamy food that much). The dish is topped with chunks of lobsters and some crabs if I am not mistaken. Overall, the dish is quite satisfying and personally recommending to try this dish.
Luciole Bistro is a place where you can have a pretty dinner with your dates, relatives, friends, and families with a view of green scenery (in the afternoon) outside. The ambience is quite phenomena with its dim light interior that gives romantic moments that sooth your emotions for the night.
Prepare your tummy and dress casually!
