Newly opened at the end of 2013, Common People get the attention of many young people. The concept of Eatery & Bar with rustic decor inside can be seen from the industrial stuffs and hanging lights that will catch our sight. The spacious bar area will show you the selectable drinks. On the weekend, this place will be packed with the youngster around South Jakarta.
Common People will pamper your tongue with New York style cuisines. Head chef Johannes Hendry likes to cooking and create his own food recipes. Starting your meal with a lighter menu like Jalapeno and Cheddar Croquette. One of the menu to be praised is Souffle Salmon in Creamy Cheese Sauce. Soft flesh of salmon was very tasty with its sauce for cream cheese. Seal your meal in the Common People with Chocolate Peanut Butter Crepe, served with a scoop vanilla ice cream.
I have been to Common People on last Tuesday with my husband. The place was amazing! Wonderful decoration and very nice ambiance. However we've been quite disappointed by the food. I am a huge fan of salmon steak and my husband loves burgers... We ordered those two items and we were badly surprised by the side dishes! The salmon was served with fries and salad... Such a strange mix of textures! It would have been much better with cooked vegetables, as the salmon had no flavour! And the burger was accompanied with potato chips, such a waste of flavour! They were flabby as if the pack was openned for three days! And finally the desserts were pretty expensive for the portions but good. We may not go back there as we have higher expectations but the place is nice to hang out!
