SALADS & APPETIZERS
Popolamama Salad IDR 26K
This signature salad has the slices of Grana Padano cheese and served with Thousand Island dressing, made it simply irresistible. If you prefer Western salad, this one will do the trick.
Japanese Mushroom Salad IDR 30K
The salad is accompanied with 3 types of Japanese mushrooms like Eringi, Shiitake and Bunashimeji, then served with Japanese dressing (aka Wafu) and Kizami Nori. My favorite salad dressing is always Wafu because it’s light and refreshing. I enjoyed this salad very much!
Bolognese Potato Gratin IDR 30K
In the first glance, this looked like lasagna but it was actually potatoes and Bolognese sauce baked with cheddar and mozzarella cheese. The potatoes were very soft and cheesy that I almost thought it was a thicker layer of lasagna when I tried it. The Bolognese sauce was a bit too sweet for my liking, but overall, it was good, especially if you add some chili flakes on top. Yum!
Spicy Beef Krakauer IDR 45K
This was another favorite of mine, the sausage was thick and spicy, very bold in flavor. Accompanied with broccoli, potatoes and Neapolitan sauce, this dish was simple yet memorable.
Beef Pepperoni IDR 60K
Three Japanese Mushrooms Pizza IDR 65K
Neapolitan with Chicken Sausage IDR 52K
Aglio Olio with Tuna IDR 48K
Wafu Soy Sauce Based Pasta with Smoked Beef, Spinach & Rucola IDR 50K
Cream Sauce Style with Smoked Beef, Spinach and Rucola IDR 50K
Genovese (Pesto) Pasta Pepperoncino Basil with Potato and Chicken Sausage IDR 55K
Cranberry Lychee IDR 30K
A fan of cranberry and lychee, this drink was a total hit for me. The drink tasted sweet with a little hint of sourness, very refreshing. There were some lychee fruits inside too that made it another treat until the end. Lovely drink to accompany my fabulous pizza and pasta dining experience.
Green Apple Kiwi IDR 32K
In the other hand, I am not really a fan of this particular drink. Normally I really enjoy green apple drink, the more sour, the better. This one was very sour and it was nice, but kiwi taste wasn’t prominent at all. I was expecting better collaboration between these 2 fruits but in the end, it was just like filtered green apple juice, with slightly different taste.
Iced Tea IDR 15K
There is a nice promotion called Dessert Delight so in the afternoon, from 2.30 pm – 5.30 pm, if you buy any of the desserts, you can get a coffee/tea for only additional IDR 8K. Neat, isn’t it?
Banana Caramel Pizza IDR 55K
Yours truly is a avid fan of banana-related dishes (probably almost the same level of my fetish with durian, LOL!) so I was glad there is banana pizza as dessert! This pizza dough is really something because with sweet topping, the taste was as good as the one with savory toppings! Kudos to Popolamama to be able to present such a nice, chewy pizza bread.
Apple Cinnamon Pizza IDR 55K
Here is another favorite toppings for desserts, apple and cinnamon, seriously, what else can you ask? The apple were sliced very thinly and sprinkled with cinnamon powders, which BTW, were quite a lot so if you ask me, YES, I LOVE THIS!! The apple was red one so it had balancing sourness that matched very well with the sweetness of the whipped cream. These dessert pizzas were crazily delicious and I will definitely come back and order more!!
Apple Pie IDR 38K
The apple pie was very thick and there were so much things going on in that slice, like, seriously. This was one seriously-made apple pie and I could tell that it would be much more delicious when serving hot. Unfortunately, this came out quite early when we were in the middle of eating our pasta. So when we finally ate it, it wasn’t fresh from the oven (literally) and it was already kind of dry and hardened.
Hazelnut Dark Chocolate IDR 42K
As the compensation of the apple pie above, I have to say this was one of the best dark chocolate cake I have ever eaten so far! One spoon and I was finished. YUMMMMMYYY!! The chocolate was sooo rich and aromatic that I really smiled the moment I ate it. Nothing can really describe it in words, so I dare you to try it by yourselves and be amazed! XD
Cappuccino IDR 25K & Black Coffee IDR 17K
Another Popolamama’s trademark is that for the coffee, they use Carraro coffee that comes from Italy with composition of 90% Arabica and 10% Robusta. We tried the Black Coffee and instantly fell in love with it since the first sip. It was very aromatic and bitter in the same time, probably a bit stronger than Double Espresso. It was a very nice way to cool down after eating so much pasta and pizza, actually. And psstt, the Black Coffee is a great company to enjoy the chocolate cake!
