[NEW POST] Italian Dinner at Scusa Intercontinental MidPlaza

I got a chance to enjoy Italian Dinner at Scusa Restaurant located in Intercontinental MidPlaza Jakarta last week with other fellow food bloggers. Scusa is one of the well-known award-winning fine dining restaurant which offers lots of great Italian cuisine in an elegant, romantic, modern, and stylish ambience. The interior design is mostly using polished wood with a dramatic light setting which makes us feel intimate with the ambience. There is an open kitchen, wood burning oven, rotisserie and charcoal grill at the front area of the restaurant. I was so happy to know that Chef Wawan Setiawan Barito, Chef de Cuisine Scusa, is the one who prepared us with some of Scusa’s signature menus to try.

Walnut Bread

Walnut Bread is a complementary daily baked bread, which contains large chunks of crunchy walnut and salty feta cheese. It tastes really good!

Buffallo Mozzarella

For an appetizer, they served us with Buffallo Mozzarella served with tomatoes, rocket leaves and black pepper. As we all known, Buffallo Mozzarella is the Italy’s favorite Cheese and they served us with a fresh one. Stick a fork into the tender white cheese ball and the juices streams out from it. It has a rich taste, milky smell, fluffy and soft texture. Love it!

Potato and Mushroom Soup

I love mushrooms! This one is Scusa signature potato and wild mushroom soup with truffle. Simple, earthy and very tasty with a touch of truffle, but I prefer a thicker and creamier version of the soup.

Cappellini Con Astice Pasta

Here comes the main course which becomes my most favorite dish for that night. Homemade Angel Hair Pasta served with Sulawesi lobster, fresh chili, tomato, extra virgin oil and chopped parsley. The sauce on this dish was not heavy sauce, but it was very tasty. Though the tomato sauce kind of overpowered the dish and it’s not spicy at all, the mouth-watering lobster tastes great and it complements the homemade pasta.

Scusa Signature Spit-Roasted Chicken

Spit-roasted Chicken marinated with Italian herbs, garlic, balsamic vinegar and grain mustard, green asparagus and mashed potatoes. All the Italian herbs help to keep the chicken stays moist and tender. Simple yet delicious!

I always love this signature dessert in Scusa. This layered Homemade Tiramisu-style cake tastes really good as it looks. It’s a perfect classic coffee-flavored dessert, which is perfect for an after-dinner dessert. Love it!
