Poblano Pacific Place, the new burrito & Mexican grill restaurant in Jakarta is probably the closest thing we could come over to Chipotle at the moment. That’s what I’ve been overhearing among Twitterverse and their customers.
Having asked to do a food photoshoot for Poblano then is quite a pressure. From one point of view they are delivering something new to the market. Not entirely new, but aside from those who traveled a lot, Jakartans are not used to having burrito. From other point of view, it has to show the delicious & healthy side of it even though its a quick-serve restaurant (not to mistake it with fast food).
However, challenges are the very thing that keep this exciting. We decided to roll with it. It was one of the most intense food photoshoot we had. Not to mention, we did it without a food stylist, but thankfully we figured our way out to make it work. I’m glad that the client is happy with the final result. Here’s a quick look on what we did.
Now, we might as well do a quick review of the food. We tasted almost all of them during the photoshoot. My personal favorite is their Burrito Bowl, either with Carnitas (Pork) or with Beef. Very filling, protein and fiber rich kind of meal. Most importantly it doesn’t leave you feeling guilty. Why? Simple because you know you’re eating healthy stuff. There’s little amount of seasoning. The meat are mostly grilled not fried. The amount of veggies involved in one bowl is probably more than I ever consumed on normal days in a week.
What’s even better is Poblano do delivery and they also cater to events. I’d say it is one of my favorite alternative when I’m bored with rice, or when I’m on strict eating plan. Been making too many visits than any other new restaurant in town. That should speak more than my reviews 😉
