I just got an invitation from OpenRice Team for the first time. They invited me for tasting the food and drinks which is made by Bitter Sweet Cafe, chat and laugh here. This gathering was started at 6.30 PM, but I came late here, haha.
Here we go! I'll explain to you about this cafe and also their food.
At first, when I came here, it was available a few dishes on the table, so you could say appetizers (maybe, idk) haha, or snacks were more precise. Let me tell you one by one, left to right :
Fried Crab Sticks
The texture is quite soft and crisp.
For some reason, when I saw this food, I'm not so fond of. Maybe because the presentation isn't good enough and hard to chew.
This might be the one that I love, soft texture on the inside and crisp outside.
The First Dish : Fried Rice
I'm not so fond of, for sure. It looks so plain and tasteless, for me. How people would like it if the food was served like this? Sorry to say.
The Second Dish : Chicken Katsu Don
It looks better than before, for the presentation. There was rice at the bottom, then covered with egg and mushrooms there and katsu on top, sprinkled with sesame seeds.
The Third Dish : Spaghetti Gangnam
"It was a Korean Food", the owner said. Spaghetti was served with Korean sauce, slices of meat and cheese on top and garlic bread as the side dish. The taste is little bit spicy, but it's good enough.
The Fourth Dish : Yang Nyeom Chicken, Korean Fried Chicken
Hmm, I don't know how to explain this dish. From its name, it looks a Korean food. But I didn't feel the Korean on it, when it was served. Sweet and sour for the chicken, maybe they used their own Korean sauce. This is one of the best from all of the main menu that have been presented.
The Fifth Dish : Breaded Deep Fried Chicken Cutlets, Curry on Rice
Nothing special on this curry, like curry as usual.
The Sixth Dish : Bi Bim Bap
Korean Food again! Looks yummy when you look at it for the first time, haha. There was mushroom, carrot, bean sprout, etc. And for how to eat, all mixed into one.
And for the last, they served Coffee Blended. The owner said, it was made by himself and he said that this coffee was blended with mango. But when I tried and tasted it, I didn't feel the taste of mango. To be honest, I didn't understand the purpose of the coffee was blended with mango.
At the last, the owner was interview by the OpenRice Team. He was explained about the cafe, called Bitter Sweet Cafe because it was like a life, there was sweet and bitter, sometimes.
Originally, it was made for a cafe/coffee shop, but now become a restaurant, focused on Japanese and Korean Food, he said. But, in fact, you can find 'anything' here. Haha. And he also said that he likes to make something and he usually makes the food what was on his mind. So, when you look at the menu, there was so many list of food! HAHA.
But if you are curious, please come to this cafe! :)
