In less than a month, H Gourmet And Vibes set itself apart from its fellow eateries in the culinary triangle of Gunawarman-Senopati-Wolter. Occupying a huge three stories space, it contends the competition with dark-toned New York inspired interior (complete with the huge clock), bright neon lights, wall-sized window, a bar and catchy lively tunes.
I like how they categorize their menu differently. Munch for appetizers. Pots for soups. Roots for salads. House mains for main course and Closure for dessert. Food mostly are American-angled soul food, from Buffalo Wings to Philly Cheese Burger.
I’ve seen pictures of their burger scattered online here and there, but I have a feel that’s not where H Gourmet’s strength lies in. I went with my gut feeling and chose Jerky Chicks (IDR 85K) instead. It’s a jerk seasoned grilled chicken which they described as Jamaican favorite dish. Well now its my favorite dish too. Juicy, well seasoned, well cooked, although I would prefer to have the bitterness toned down a bit.
Second dish of the day was Rise & Shine (IDR 75K), H Gourmet and Vibes’s house pan-seared rice. Just like the first dish, this is a rather exotic menu. A Middle-East inclined dish that looks plain but pretty flavorful in the mouth. Although, I believe it is not made for everyone’s tongue.
To close this quick review, I’d say it is a great spot to eat & late night chill. I wouldn’t come back that often though for the simple reason that the divide between smoking & non-smoking area is a blurry lines. If I were to pay that much, I would love to enjoy the ambience they way that I prefer it. But aside from that, kudos to H Gourmet and Vibes. I can’t wait to see what you guys cook up on the first floor.
To infini-food and beyond,
