Well, I think it's not fair just promoting their new menus without tasting them. Let's scroll and roll to find out more...


Salmon Miso Soup (Nabemono)
IDR 68.000
One of the "nabemono" or hot pot dishes, consist of nori, mushroom, carrot and of course salmon cooked with miso soup. My order that afternoon, the taste probably not as extravagant as the other dishes but I like it. The thick miso seasoning within the soup bring up the Japanese taste to the juicy salmon and other ingredients in it.

Nabeyaki Udon
IDR 68.000
Just catch a glimpse about this hot pot, the look quite promising. I didn't have the chance to taste it, but I put it here anyway to add more nabemono options for you.

Premium Saikoro Steak with Rice
IDR 68.000
Next from ala carte menu, Premium Saikoro Steak with a bowl of steamed rice. Saikoro steak a common dish from Japan, tenderloin cut in cubes pan fried with cashew nuts in a high flame. Yum... yum... I mean who doesn't like tenderloin steak.

Ten Ten Signature Stone Rice
IDR 68.000
This one is a must try if this your first visit to Ten Ten. Japanese mixed rice with ebi sakura topped with grilled fish, ebi tempura and squid. There's nothing more to describe this dish than completely delicious.

Tori Momo Stone Rice
IDR 58.000
Another stone rice collection, tori momo. Grilled chicken with special sauce and edamame on top of the steamed rice in a stone bowl to maintain the heat. This one is unexpectedly GOOD, ohhh don't forget to mix before you eat!

Salmon Ohba Pesto Stone Rice
IDR 68.000
Salmon with ohba pesto sauce on rice, garnished with nori slices, sweet corn and baby tomatoes. Pesto sauce at Ten Ten modified using ohba leaves instead of basil that commonly used in Italy, the origin country of pesto. Mix mix mix...

Cheese Beef Hamburg with Rice
IDR 62.000
One of my fave, minced meat with mozzarella cheese within it and stir fried vegetables served on a hot plate. As soon as you cut the meat you'll notice that sticky gooey cheesy juicy beef must be delicious, and it sure does!

Grilled Fish Ohba Cream Sauce with Rice (Salmon)
IDR 68.000
This one taste quite unique, if you like herbs this should be in your picked list. Grilled fish (you can choose between salmon or red snapper) cooked with Ohba cream sauce, enoki and mushroom then garnished with nori slices.

Premium Saikoro Ramen
IDR 68.000
Noodle cooked with ohba pesto topped with premium saikoro steak and sprinkle of cashew nut slices. My friend's order, they claimed this dish is extremely tasty.


Matcha Lava Cake
IDR 28.000
Lava cake in matcha flavor with red beans sauce on top. For green tea lover this cake would be a dear. Served with a scoop of matcha ice cream to balance the sweet matcha filling from the cake. Eat them together and it just perfect!

Red Velvet Lava Cake
IDR 28.000
Red velvet lava cake, another variation from lava cakes collection. There are three of them, red velvet, matcha and chocolate, each of them accompanied with a scoop of ice cream.

Red Velvet Cream Cheese Ice Cream (hot plate dessert)
IDR 32.000
Woohoo this is my favorite dessert! The red velvet cake on a hot plate and ice cream on top then poured with cream sauce. You can pour the sauce on your own or let the waitress do the dirty work, just kidding this is fun. Bottom of the cake will become more crunchy and tastier due to the hot plate, cold on top and hot at the bottom. A perfect combination for a great taste, two thumbs up! There's two other hot plate dessert combination, Cheese Pound Cake Matcha Ice Cream and Brownies Chocolate Ice Cream.

Fruit Kakigori
IDR 32.000
Vanilla shaved ice with fruit toppings and mango sauce. Another yummy treat for those looking for refreshing dessert. The shaved ice so moist almost just like ice cream and the sauce is superb.

Cerita Kuliner Breakfast @ Carnivor Barbecue Specialist PIK - nuraisya blog

Like a famous motto "A good breakfast start your day right", Carnivor Barbecue Specialist now providing us with their breakfast menus so we can start our days right. They open earlier than usual too, from 7.30 AM the whole week except for Monday. After 11.00 AM open as usual with their regular menus. As you might know, Carnivor open at Kelapa Gading, Sentul, PIK and Sunter. But for now these breakfast menus only available at Carnivor PIK, our destination that day. Located at Rukan Golf Pantai Indah Kapuk, not far from PIK Hospital and after a few turns finally we arrived. 

Carnivor PIK
Ready to have a good breakfast?
Entering the restaurant you'll notice right away how the atmosphere inside the restaurant designed to support their mission to bring us closer to the city of New York while enjoying their famous ribs, steaks, pizza and flavor beers that come in affordable price. The front area of the restaurant much more brighter than the back with all those wide windows, it maybe hotter at day to sit here but for eating breakfast I think this is the best spot. Looking around, wooden tables and chairs well arranged throughout the room. Further to the back plenty of cool New York's pictures decorating their brick walls, which according to the owner were taken by his friend who lives there. Overall it's a cool place to eat and hangout with your friends, colleages or family.

Candles and spotlights is a common sight here

Heading to the most crucial and waited moment, the BREAKFAST! Before we start, a little note here that some of the menus contain pork, but don't worry you can always switch pork with other halal meat. The waitress also kind enough to remind us when ordering. Now let's not wait any longer to taste those tempting menus, shall we?


Carnivor Big Breakfast, IDR 69.000
Two eggs to your liking wether scramble or sunny side up, baked beans sauce, streaky pork bacon, sausage bratwurst, sauteed mushroom, and white toast. This is the menu I picked, totally love it especially the crisp bacon and super soft scramble eggs. Not to fond with the sauce though. Big Breakfast definitely will charge your energy bar fully even for the toughest day.

Spanish Hash, IDR 65.000
Potato, sausage bratwurst and pork ham diced together then doused with hollandaise sauce. Served together with a poached egg and toast bread.

Crouque Monsieur, IDR 48.000 - 55.000
White or wheat toast with optional toppings:
Meat Lover cream sauce, onion, mushroom, sausage, ham, streaky bacon.
Bacon and Egg cream sauce, onion, mushroom, slice boiled egg, streaky bacon.
Pepperoni tomato sauce, slice tomato, pepperoni, sausage.
Mix Cheese tomato sauce, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, cream cheese.

Shakshouka, IDR 68.000
The famous Tunisian dish for breakfast, sizzling pan of homemade tomato, onion, studded with sausage, ham, crowned with two eggs, toasted bread and mesclun salad.

Egg Benedict, IDR 45.000 - 65.000 (right)
You can choose between Smoked Ham, Streaky Bacon or Salmon along with two poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, and sauteed mushroom on top of fun breads. We also tried a dish that has similar combination as Egg Benedict (left). The differences are breads switched to puff pastry which make it more crunchier and another plus point are the pop fried cassavas, the better and tastier combination I'd say.


Mix Juices, IDR 27.500
Choose your favorite mix of two kind of fresh fruits from orange, mango, soursop, strawberry, guava, green apple, carrot, and tomato. So refreshing!

Avocado Affogato, IDR 32.000
Nope I didn't order this, just a little curious about the name. A mix between blended avocado and affogato (ice cream poured with espresso).

Banana Butterscotch Latte, IDR 23.000
A mix of hot latte and butterscotch syrup with a touch of banana flavor and chips. Too sweet for me, perhaps lessening the syrup a bit will make it more delicious and balance.


Bread Pudding, IDR 32.000
Warm oven baked bread with raisin, served with a scoop of ice cream. My favoriteee... the sweetness just right, the bread so moist along with the vanilla ice cream make it more perfect.

Waffle, IDR 30.000 - 35.000
Waffles with a scoop of ice cream. The waffles come in original, chocolate, strawberry or hazelnut flavor. Looking for the sweet crunchy dessert, this is your best pick.

Creme Brulee, IDR 35.000
Soft creme brulee with fresh strawberries on top. Another tasty dessert with the right sweetness amount. Definitely thumbs up!

Apple Crumble, IDR 35.000 (left)
Oven baked caramelized apple topped with crumbles and a scoop of ice cream. Actually I'm a big fan of apple and caramel, but this dessert failed to impress me. It's okay but not great.
Choco Volcano, IDR 38.000 (right)
Oven baked chocolate melt served with a scoop of ice cream. It's chocolate and ice cream what can goes wrong with that combination.

This conclude the post for my breakfast experience with Carnivor, thank you to Mr. Ridwan (the owner), Miss Shabrina and Mr. Adriantomo for the invitation. Then again all of my comments about the food are based on my personal taste. It probably would end with different results if you come and try them for yourself. So come and have a good breakfast at Carnivor PIK and see you on my next post ^.^

Come on start your day with BREAKFAST at Carnivor!
