Oh it feels good to be back! And by back I mean back writing reviews of cafes or restaurants that me and boyfriend have experienced before. I'm still struggling whether I have to make a new blog to start my food blog or just use this one instead because I want this new food blog to be a professional one where we really put detailed information and attention to everything, from the ambiance of the place to the taste of the foods. This time, we went to Socius. It's pretty easy for you to get there but don't ask me how because we all know I'm not good with directions. I've been wanting to go here since the first time I saw one of my senior in uni posted a photo in Socius' rooftop. And it was very pretty, even on a broad day light. So I told my boyfriend the other day that I wanted to try their food as well. Just to see if the view matches the taste.
As you can see above, the price is not that expensive. Most of the foods are under 30K and that's pretty cheap looking at the place itself. But I have a hard time figuring out what theme are they trying to apply to the menu because you know... foods from all over the country are mixed here. There's Asian, and then Western foods. I don't really like a cafe or restaurant that mixes its food genres.
I decided to have chicken maryland, chocolate pot de creme, and chocolate ice. Boyfriend had salmon cheese roll, schezuan rice, and melon longan. We also got free dessert that you could pick, the waitress would ask you by then.
Chocolate ice and melon longan
I am totally not recommending you guys the chicken maryland because despite the price (costs me 30+ish rupiahs), the chicken tastes very cheap. It's even worse than those frozen nuggets :( The chicken tastes frozen and bland, I don't really get the taste of the brown sauce, and the cheapness oh my, it's so obvious. Really thumbs down for this dish. And it's not that much anyway for a 30K+ worth of dish. I still prefer the one you can have at Parsley.
Salmon cheese roll
Chocolate pot de creme
Ice cream waffles
As for the free dessert, we got ourselves ice cream waffles. The ice cream was good, but the waffles were terrible. So spongy, tough, and bland. I didn't even take a second or third mouth into the waffles. It was just terrible. But boyfriend was right, what do you expect from a free desserts?
Overall? I give out 6.5/10.
