New a la Carte Menu at Scusa

Today, I had a chance to try the new finest selection of authentic Italian dishes at Scusa Restaurant, InterContinental Jakarta MidPlaza Hotel. It's a truly fabulous experience to try some of the new a la carte menu with 23 mouth-watering Italian dishes created by Gary Palm, the Executive Chef together with Wawan Barito Setiawan, the Sous Chef of Scusa Restaurant. I really enjoyed every bites of the dishes on my plates.

Appetizers & Salad

Pan-fried maize dusted foie gras - Rp. 144.000
on dried fruit and nut bread with balsamico glazed apples.
The combination between each of the ingredients was lovely. 

Pan seared sea scallops - Rp. 154.000
on beetroot salsa, avocado, marinated seaweed and saffron emulsion.

Broiled duck breast - Rp. 155.000
with warm cheese, julienne of vegetables, walnut glazed and port-apple sauce.
The duck breast was absolutely juicy and tender.

Buffalo mozzarella - Rp. 103.000
semi-dried tomatoes and rocket leaves and black pepper.


Zuppa di pesce - Rp. 66.000
seafood soup with clams, squid, salmon, snapper and prawns.
I adore the soup. It tasted refreshing with perfect balance of tanginess with all the other ingredients.

Main courses

Roast dover sole fillet - Rp. 210.000
with zucchini, sundried tomato, semolina dumpling and pesto sauce.
Everyone's favorite from all the 3 main courses. Seriously, it surpasses my expectations! Very scrumptious!

Braised angus short rib - Rp. 195.000 
with asparagus, polenta and pesto.
The braised angus short rib was great. It's succulent and bursting with flavor.

Linguine al nero di sepia con capesante, salmone e calamari - Rp. 125.000
Squid ink linguini with scallops, salmon and calamari.
It tasted a bit blunt for me as I was expecting for richer taste but it had still a nice taste.


Scusa's molten chocolate cake Rp. 64.000
with rum-raisin ice cream and vanilla sauce.
A sinful dessert that  I totally couldn't resist it.


Moctails Fantasia - Rp. 55.000
Orange, lychee, mango,  grenadine syrup. 
Pretty refreshing especially on a hot day like today :)

Illy Cofee Cappuccino  - Rp. 45.000
The cappuccino was to complete and end my dining experience at Scusa :)
