Another American burger chain has opened in Jakarta recently. They've opened two branch in Jakarta, and the one I tried is their PIM Branch. The place was not too big, the interior was taking the concept of classic American diner. They've got red diner seats, checkered floor, and even the music jukebox. Pretty much similar as what you've seen on TV.
The food they served are mostly burgers and sandwiches. For a fast food chain restaurant, I think the food was kinda overpriced, since the burger price starts at IDR 80.000 before tax and service. Anyway, here's what I had.
Philly Cheese Steak (IDR 84.000)
Thinly sliced sirloin steak grilled to perfection and topped with grilled onions and cheese, served on hoagie roll. It was really good at my first bite, all the elements blended well, perfect seasoning, and I especially LOVE that hoagie roll. It was warm, soft, a lil bit sweet, yum! Even though the picture shows a lot of onions, there's actually also a generous amount of steak behind them. But at my latest bite, I was getting overwhelmed by the cheese. Oh, it also came with generous amount of French Fries, and they were fat and thick and good.
Chocolate Milk Shake (IDR 50.000)
In the other hand, I found this Chocolate Milk Shake waaay too sweet. While I was getting overwhelmed by the cheese, drinking this made it even worse. Oh I knew I should just order soda.
So will I be back? Well actually the food was good and service was fast and polite, but with that price, I'm not sure. I spent more than 150k for the two items above after tax and service, and they are fast food. Credit card discount, pretty please? ;p
