Momozen The Plaza Jakarta is a restaurant that serves superbly delicious food. They offer delicious Japanese food as well as a place for all your partners or family. Located on the altitude of 46 at the Plaza, Momozen will give you a different dining sensation than usual. So on this occasion I will tell you about my experience when trying some of their signature menus to their seasonal menu.
I’ve been several times previously visited Altitude The Plaza to try another restaurant. Oh ya, FYI Altitude The Plaza has several restaurants such as Altitude grill, Enmaru, Shabu Gen and also Gaia. At that time I tried to come to Momozen to lunch with friends. That time was my first arrival to this restaurant because very curious about the truffle of this restaurant. And the truffles they serve are really really good for details, let’s talk about the session menu below.
When I came to Momozen I really like the typical scent of the ambience, fresh with hint of traditional spices. Besides, the receptionists here were very friendly and helped us to pick a table and give us a little introduction about their restaurant. The service here is excellent, and feel like a 5 star service.
If we talk about the ambience of this restaurant is very interesting, they give a traditional Japanese touch but with a modern look. In the design they use wood elements to look natural and more homey.
Not less interesting to discuss also is the ceiling of this restaurant. Chandeliers and wood carvings are very beautiful with flower shaped and add to the impression of luxury this restaurant. And during this time I also did not stop to face my head up to see this.
I highly recommend for you to reserve in advance before coming here. Because this restaurant does not provide too many tables.
You can see the city of Jakarta that very beautiful look from Momozen restaurant. Especially if you come here with your love one, certainly would be more romantic to spend time together.
Truffle and Caviar Somen IDR 95k
This one menu is the signature menu of Momozen at The Plaza. This menu is like angel hair served with black truffles and caviar on top. When this menu came to our table, and the truffle oil smelled and made me hungry. Don’t forget to order this if you come here.
Shiogama Beef IDR 380K
This menu served with 200 gram grilled rib eye, salt crust dome, Japanese condiments. OMG I can not stop to enjoy this menu. The meat is very tasty, the texture is very juicy and tender.

This menu is available during the month of April, and that makes it different they also enliven this Sakura menu by creating a sizable cherry tree at the center of this restaurant.
To instantly Momozen restaurant transformed into pink, very beautiful, with the arrangement of trees so appropriate. Although I do not feel direct the sakura season there but I can feel it here.
Not only decoration that changed, but Momozen presents a menu for this sakura season. All the foods on the Sakura menu is dominated by pink color.

This menu served with 4 pcs bite size saikyo miso marinated cod, sakura leaf and ama miso cashew. Honestly all the elements on this menu are very foreign to me, but it tastes very good.
