Lunch in Japanese and Italian Style at AW Kitchen Pasta House

Senayan Plaza, 4th Floor

Jakarta

I had a lunch at AW Kitchen Pasta House to taste their new lunch sets. The unique thing about AW Kitchen Pasta House is that it mixes the authentic Italian cuisine with Japanese ingredients. The lunch sets are affordable as their price is around IDR 150,000 ++. The lunch sets are available every weekdays, from Monday to Thursday, from 11 AM to 2 PM. 

There are 5 choices of homemade pasta in the set menu, and the chef salad with choice of Ice Tea or Hot Tea. 




The choice of pasta dishes are: 

FUSILLI PASTA WITH SAKURA SHRIMP AND BROCCOLI PEPERONCINO




TROFIE PASTA WITH EGGPLANT AND CHERRY TOMATO IN TOMATO SAUCE




TORENETTE PASTA WITH SHRIMP AND GREEN BEAN IN GENOVESE SAUCE




GNOCCHI PASTA WITH CORN AND WATERCRESS IN CREAM SAUCE




AWKitchen's Calzone, or we can call it “the closed pizza”, is a mix of Italian and Japan style as it has three kinds of mushrooms from Japan, creamy mushroom, beef pepperoni calzone and eggs.




In addition to lunch set menu, AW Kitchen Pasta House also has five signature cocktails. They are Picollo, Elderberry, Yukitobi, Cucumber Peach and Meet and Greet. 

Picollo is a cocktail made with Bacardi rum, apple juice, apple syrup, and fresh kiwi. 




Elderberry is a cocktail made from Vodka, Campari, strawberry, pomegranate, elder flower, as well as cinnamon and basil. 




Yukitobi or snow game in Japan has a lump of ice balls in it. It is served with gin, peach liqueur, lychee syrup, and fresh lemon. 




Cucumber Peach is made from Vodka, Concombre syrup, peach syrup, fill up tonic water, and fresh lemon. 




Meet and Greet is served with canapĂ©. It is made from a mixture of Jim Beam, honey, oregano powder, and lime.




The restaurant is owned by Akira Watanabe who started his career in 1992 in Hasegawa or the Global Dining. In 1993, he became the Head Chef in Tableaux. In 1997, he became the Master Chef in the Global dining which handles CafĂ© La Boheme, Tableaux, Stellato, Gonpachi, and others. In 2001, after he resigned from the Global Dining, he became a Representative Director at Art-Food International, the Chef of Art – Food International, and the Master Chef of Reins Group. In 2003, after he resigned from the Art – Food International, he established his restaurants, and consulting services for restaurants and the food industry. Right now, Akira Watanabe owns almost 30 restaurants in Japan and Indonesia.

The differences between the AW Kitchen in Japan and Indonesia is that the one in Jakarta offers pasta and pizza as well.

Below are the other food and beverages that I eat, and my favorite one is the Shrimp Ball, the one that looks like three hairy balls :-D  











Enjoy your lunch!
