Luciole Bistro : pretty fireflies

Jakarta boisterousness was supported by those hip places trying to indulge our needs. Some of them hold out their comfort places, some of them have it with cushy meals as their extra points, while sometimes some them offer a pricey one without a decent meal.

While cafes, brasseries, and restaurants was filling every corner of Jakarta, a bistro was trying to serve an affordable and luxury in the same time. Located in the middle of Tribeca Park in Central Park, Luciole Bistro put on a sanity of those green ambiance with fusion Asian and Western food as their specialties. 


Luciole means fireflies in French. They have Ralph and Suzy as their icons, running around to catch those beautiful fireflies.
Such a pretty name, isn't it?

The lighting of the bistro was great in those sunny days, emitting the beauty in every corner of it.

Craving for an-after-work-drink-and-chitchat? Luciole serve beers and cocktails until late, too!

Shanghai moon (39k). Dominated with orange and a touch of soda. A glass to save the sunny day! 

Here comes the appetizer. I was interested to give it a try since the first time I took a look at their menu. Salmon crackers (50k). A big plate of spring roll with salmon and vegetable inside. The salmon was nice and generous. I could find those big chunks inside. The spring roll was served with salad which was a good complement. The thai sauce on the top of it made it even better.

Aglio Olio (55k). A plate of well-cooked spaghetti with mushrooms and herbs on it. Aglio olio supposed to be a spicy one but I did not feel any. So I add a pinch of chili powder and turned out it was a palatable one.

 Carbonara penne (59k). This one surely was my new favorite pasta in town. The texture of penne was  perfect. The sauce was creamy, bold and dominating. Asked for cheese and they would give those big pieces of cheese, which made it more flavorful. 

My favorite spot inside. Table for two next to those pretty greens outside. I spent my whole afternoon in Luciole bistro and this place did not bore me at all.

It was a pleasant afternoon. Good food, good friends, and good service. Too bad I did not try their Asian dishes, but the food I had did not disappoint me at all. Looking forward to try their dessert, too.
