On a random day, my friend and I tried out PEPeNERO Cucina Italia on the first floor of the Menara Karya building in Mega Kuningan.
I think we’re on an informal quest to test whether Lonely Planet got it right when they recommended certain places. I mean, Popeye’s is on the list of good eats, which I think casts doubt on the staff’s taste. 😛
Anyway, PEPeNERO is kind of upscale, with nice tables decked out with flowers and paper place mats (recycled, which is good). It’s nice for dates or wiling away sizzling afternoons with friends and family.
They have a good selection of Italian food at fairly affordable prices (average: Rp 40.000 per dish). And you get a free basket of assorted yummy bread sticks/ fried molo wrappers and some sort of bruschetta.
