[NEW SPOT] Harlequin Bistro, A New Cafe with Big Kids Playground, Kemang

Ada yang sudah tahu belum, kalau di daerah Kemang (Jakarta Selatan), ada cafe baru nih! Yup, Harlequin Bistro yang baru saja dibuka 11 minggu lalu ini, merupakan salah satu cafe unik yang memiliki playground besar di dalamnya. Karena penasaran, aku pun mengunjungi kafe ini untuk makan siang bersama suami. It was kinda hard to find a parking lot in front of the restaurant, and we have to park our car a few blocks from the restaurant. Dari tampak depan restoran, Harlequin Bistro memang terlihat kecil, namun ternyata area di dalamnya cukup luas. Bahkan, ketika memasuki restoran, kami sudah disambut dengan dekorasi cantik nan elegan, chic minimalis, dan sentuhan mewah lampu gantung chandelier juga terlihat di area depan (smoking area).

Uniknya lagi, selain sebagai restoran, di sini juga terdapat showroom perlengkapan bayi, dan kids playground yang terbagi menjadi indoor playground (berada di lantai 2) dan outdoor playground (berdekatan dengan area makan non-smoking). And hey, look at that ship! Entah bagaimana caranya, tapi perahu pinisi besar yang terdapat di area taman bermain anak outdoor Harlequin Bistro ini sungguh menarik, khususnya untuk anak-anak! Riuh suara tawa dan langkah kaki anak kecil berlari di sana sini kerap kali terdengar saat aku berada di area itu. They seemed to be having fun and enjoy the playground!

Pilihan menu yang ditawarkan oleh Harlequin Bistro mayoritas adalah Western food, dan beberapa pilihan Asian food juga tersedia dengan harga mulai dari Rp. 40.000,- hingga Rp. 230.000,- (untuk kategori steak). Untuk minuman, aku memesan Iced Lychee Tea (IDR 25K) dan Hot Tea (IDR 25K). Sedangkan untuk makanan, kebetulan saat itu mereka masih memiliki promo opening Buy 1 Get 1 untuk Harlequin Le Entrecote Steak (IDR 230K), we thought it’s a very good deal! Besides, menu Steak Le Entrecote ini rupanya adalah salah satu signature dishes di sana, so, why not? Ha-ha.. Meskipun hanya menggunakan daging wagyu ribeye lokal, tekstur dagingnya empuk sekali dan kami berdua menikmatinya terutama karena bumbu olahan Harlequin signature french herb sauce yang digunakan meresap sampai ke dalam daging. Porsinya cukup besar, dan mengenyangkan karena disajikan juga dengan kentang goreng sebagai pendamping hidangan steak. Sayangnya, kami sudah terlanjur kenyang dan tidak sempat mencoba beberapa menu yang sepertinya menarik, baik dari appetizer seperti Egg Mayo Beinet, Asian dishes seperti Oriental Moo Rice, Kebuli Rice, Ikan Mackerel dengan Sambal Jambal, ataupun Beef Slider-nya.

Kami pun terpaksa juga membatalkan niat untuk mencoba beberapa pilihan dessert yang tersedia, karena perut yang sudah kekenyangan. Hiks.. Well, overall, it was a nice lunch experience, and if you have kids, Harlequin Bistro has that interesting concept of kids playground and can be your next culinary destination in Kemang. A bit slow in service, but they offer food at affordable prices.
