My boyfriend lives a walkable distance away from Loewy and we thought to give it a try because we have heard great reviews about it. Typically during the night time, they would open their glass windows, so customers can breathe in a mix of fresh air and ventilated breeze coming out of the AC. We realised most customers that come by are either expatriates or English speaking locals.
Steak Sandwich Au Jus, 130 000RP
Ths Steak Sandwich was a little too overcooked and I believe meats as thin as that should be cooked many seconds up. The sauce and fries were great, but the ciabatta was a little too hard which led to its downfall.
Classic Braised Lamb Shank, 185 000RP
The Lamb Shank meat was unbelievably tender and cooked perfectly. The sauce wasn’t too favourable as it was a more Asian inspired black-pepper sauce, and as good as a lamb shank it is, we prefer a simple red wine sauce that allows to let the meat stand out. That’s just how we like it but you might think otherwise. On the other hand, the gruyere mozzarella potato gratin and the whole caramelized onion was impeccable leaving us feeling moreish.
One drawback as a non smoker would be sniffing cigarettes as the smoker and non-smoker seats aren’t separated appropriately.
Loewy is a favourite among many locals and overseas expatriates, those especially who appreciate al fresco dining bar. Given its location, Loewy nailed in attracting its main target customers as the premises is close to a pool of office buildings and apartments where expatriates are nested. We appreciate the vibe, but given the heat in Jakarta, the brat in me still demands ventilated air at all times.
