J Sparrow’s has been the up and coming new restaurant in the heart of Mega Kuningan. I love how this place is so close to home. J Sparrow’s has an open spaced area and a more glamorous section at the other end of the restaurant. The open spaced corner is not at all warm and I was surprised that it was actually rather cooling to be sitting out.
This is the bar area where I thought it suited more for night time affairs. Since we came here for lunch, we opted to go sit outside where natural light was needed.
The patty was tender and chunky, sauce plenty, avocado creamy, caramelized onions sweet, beef bacon crispy. There was really not much to complain about except maybe that the sweet potato fries could be made just a little more crispy.
This was a unique patty, also considered as J Sparrow’s signature burger. The patty feels like a normal chicken burger but it had shrimp chunks in it and boy did it taste like it. The egg was also a nice touch and the yolk was the fluid that kept it moist and un-dry. I should warn you that the burger was a little spicy. If you can’t take spice all too well you should think twice whether or not this burger should be an option. The chips was super great and it was paired with really savoury and refreshing creamy sauce.
I don’t usually take wine but boy I love them in pasta! The pasta had a carbonara-esque texture infused with wine and oil. With clams they were exemplary.
We were intrigued when the pork schnitzel came because it looked huge! Sadly, the slice of pork was superbly thin sliced. Not that its not great, it was still tasty, but a thicker patty would have been oh-so-much-more satisfying. We were impressed with the spices they used with the batter as it really packed a punch when it comes to flavour. We all loved it! They also did an excellent job with the cold potato salad.
Service on the other hand wasn’t as well as the food was. The food took pretty long before it was served and the waiter who served us kept forgetting what we asked for. Do not let my experience demean your intention to come, do visit because I still think the food’s pretty legit!
