They said "it's better late than never" and as much as I was glad that we were having this little rendezvous, I realized that my friends seemed to be lost both literally and in between the meaning of that proverb. Fortunately, Otel Lobby has never been too packed, which what makes this place very intimate and private. Thumbs up for the waiters who managed to stay profusely patient (compared to myself) and instead of hassling me while waiting for the rest of the party, I was left quite alone with enough peace and serenity. In fact, I think I bothered them more with questions of the Hell Hour!
Every Monday - Thursday, from 5-9 p.m, they have a hell hour promotion where you can get 2 selected bar food and cocktails for the price of 1. So here goes the feeding frenzy..
|As always, two menus from Otel Lobby|
|The non-smoking area and Febriano's very late gift on that chair.|
|I have always loved their mysterious, dark vibe.|
|Peach Tea (25k) while waiting for my friends to arrive|
|Bistro Burger (85k). Also included in the Hell Hour promo. It came with a bucket of fries. Look how thick that patty is! They also said that the buns are homemade. I didn't get to try this one though..|
|Spaghetti Aglio Olio (55k), with parmagiano, bread crumbs to add some texture, and garlic chips. You can additional meat for the price of 85k. It was al dente. A simple yet satisfying dish for the aglio olio lovers.|
|Duck Confit (85k) with grilled peach and sweet onion marmalade. Not a fan of the sweet sauce. The outer of the duck skin is crispy enough to fulfill my expectations for a good duck confit. Not the best, but it was good enough.|
