Potatohead is now one of my favourite restaurant/bars in Jakarta. The food is fab. The drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are fab. The decor is fun, quirky and cute. And they have sofas OUTSIDE that you can sit on! That's right! Outside! That place where there isn't airconditioning!!
I've been there at night twice before, and today went for lunch as was pleased by the offerings on the brunch/lunch menu as well. Plus, the service is amazing when compared to Social House at Harvey Nichols… Social House has good food but SERIOUS problems with service.
Today I had the wagyu beef burger with salad on the side and sweet potato fries. It was really yummy, and the portion size is good. It wasn't a huge burger, just the right size. I also had a strawberry muesli lassi, and my friend had some sort of juice. It was all very tasty, well prepared and fresh.
During the day, the atmosphere is really different. While at night the place is full of trendsters, at day time it's more laid back and there's even some kids running around, with slightly older kids dressed in white uniforms (usually known as nannies… seriously, there was one nanny there that looked barely older than the kid she was looking after) running after them while mum and dad enjoy the swanky sofas.
