Wednesday Wall2Wall ☆ Y&Y Restaurant Grand Indonesia




When you pick a restaurant, how do you pick? If we have the time to research at home, I do, but if we are already out and about like in our case here at a shopping mall, Grand Indonesia, and I have no idea about the restaurants at the place, I am usually drawn to the design of a restaurant when picking a place to dine.

Y&Y has always drew my attention because of their design. One weekend night, we finally decided to have dinner at Y&Y. I was excited! I whipped out my camera (my husband rolls his eyes). I asked the restaurant staff if I could take some photos and they were very welcoming and friendly.

I love modern white interior design, so Y&Y grabbed my heart at the first sight. I also like the origami cranes hanging from tree branches in vases. The contrast of orange and yellow origami cranes stood out in the white background.

Y&Y restaurant serves fusion food and the menu has a mixture of deli food, Western as well as Asian dishes. What I like about this restaurant is that they serve kids bento boxes for a very reasonable price (around IDR 30,000+ (US$3+)). It was more on the heavy side, but yummy.

レストランを選ぶ時ってどうされますか?時間があると、調べたりするのですが、既にもう外出中でモール(この時はグランド・インドネシア)に居たりして、どこが良いか分からない場合、私は結構レストランのインテリアなどを見ます。

今までグランド・インドネシアのレストラン街へ行った時、いつもY&Yが気になっていました。そこで、ある週末にグランド・インドネシアへ行った際、Y&Yで夕食をとることにしました。つい嬉しくなって、カメラを構えると、夫がまたかと言った感じで見ていました...写真を撮る前にレストランのフロアスタッフに写真を撮って良いか尋ねると、とても皆さん歓迎の雰囲気で驚かされました。

モダンで白いインテリアにはとても惹かれるので、Y&Yの白いインテリアには一目惚れしました。また、折り紙で作った鶴を枝に下げ、その枝を花瓶に入れて飾っているところがとてもユニークで目に留まりました。オレンジと黄色の折り紙でできた鶴と白のインテリアの背景のコントラストが素敵でした。

Y&Yは、東洋に感化された西洋料理もあればアジア料理もある、多国籍料理(無国籍?)レストランです。私が気に入ったのは、子供用のメニューでお弁当があるところ。ボリュームがあって、ちょっと脂っこいけど美味しかったですよ。(しっかり味見)値段もお手頃で30,000ルピア(300円+)ちょっとでした。

Good Idea

There is a hook under the table top where you can hang your purse. Brilliant design idea.
テーブルの支えの所にものを掛けられるフックがあり、鞄を掛けておく事ができます。優れたデザインアイディア。

Bonus

We won 10% discount. Yippeee! I don’t know if they do this only during the certain time of the year or only on weekends or what, but they had a lucky draw when we had dinner there on one weekend. I thought it was such a fun and neat idea!
10%の割り引きをもらっちゃいました!やった〜!1年のうち一定の期間だけ、または週末だけにこのくじ引きが行われるのかなどは分からないのですが、私たちがある週末に食事した時、くじを引くことができました。とっても楽しい面白いアイディアだと思います。

    Such a nice decoration at this restaurant! I think I have been to this mall when I stayed in Jakarta but I am not sure. Want to try all recommended restaurants next time when visiting there. I enjoy your pictures:-)

    I don’t know if it’s because the influence of my husband, but we choose restaurants that are packed with customers. Hubby said that if the crowd loves it that it must be a guarantee of the food’s quality. I hate queuing though ;p. I admire your courage to ask the staffs to take pictures Kaho! You take great restaurant’s interior pics that other gourmet blogger don’t. Great work!

      You actually made a very good point which I also follow and I completely forgot to mention!! My mom is like your husband. She always tries (whether she’s interested in or not) anything where people are lined up. I wonder if that’s a Japanese thing. So, now I do get curious when I see a lot of people lined up or some placed is packed with people. In fact, that’s how I found out about the store Charles and Keith.

    I like the neat, mostly white interiors of Y&Y too! They have such an extensive menu that I get confused as to what to order! So many options! Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures!
