The Playground has already been in the top of my list since long ago, but I haven't got the chance to try it until last week.
Last week, me and david were just having our usual movie date. We decided to watch The Hobbit, and since it was a long movie, we have to watch it in EX. Yes, in our opinion, EX has the most comfortable seats amongst all theater, with the big comfy sofa and spacious footspace. So EX is our first destination, whenever we're going to watch a long movie.
Anyway, after the long and enjoyable movie (I always find fantasies enjoyable), we were (finally) having dinner at The Playground. The Playground is located in the Plaza Indonesia Extension, separated into two areas by a wide corridor. The interior is elegant, I love their various kind of seating. They have the swings, merry-go-rounds, and also the usual table. Tacky us, we sit on the swing area.
The choice of food was not too much. The food menu was only a piece of paper with the list of the food. No description, no pictures, not designed at all. In the other hand, the beverage selection is wider, the menu is designed beautifully, very contrast.
From the not-too-much selection of food, I chose Chicken Wellington (IDR 65.000) as my main course. And that was a great decision. It was chicken fillet and spinach wrapped in a puff pastry, served with mashed potatoes, a slice of tomato, mushroom, and black pepper sauce. They said that it took 30 minutes to cook the dish, but it was worth to wait. The chicken was juicy, the pastry was also delicious, and they mashed up perfectly with the mashed potato and the sauce. Love it.
David chose Epic Roasted Chicken (IDR 75.000) for his main course. It was half chicken roasted with herbs, served with potato croquette, chilli sauce, and grilled banana. Well that was new for us, never seen any chicken dish served with banana before. The chicken's seasoning was kinda weird for me, there's something tasted so strong, but I don't know what was that. Potato croquette was good, banana was also delicious, but we didn't try combining the banana with chicken or croquette in one bite. Now I wonder how would it taste like?
Bottom line, great movie, great dinner, will be back soon if I feel like playing swing :p
Just kidding, will be back soon to try their wide selection of drinks!
