Hide and Seek Swirlhouse SCBD

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

I know this is a super late post, that I came to this place a month ago and now I just blog it up. Too many things to do as a senior graphic design student, ass-ignments gotta be horrible in this week, but thank goodness I have 2 days off so I could write down the drafts saved.

About a month ago, I came to there with Zomato friends. Came there together with Ci' Wibi and at the first time we arrived there we didn't know where was the entrance to Hide and Seek?

Where is it hiding?

Like its name, to get yourself into Hide and Seek, you must walk in the alley beside Blumchen Coffee, you'll notice the alley quickly as you can see the "H&S" typeface.

Hide and Seek
I love the place, so vintage, jazzy, and it's like entering "The Great Gatsby" movie interior setting..... as the design student, it is simply called "art deco" design. I can imagine it was at night, the band played the jazz songs and even people started dancing on the floor together. Seems nice to come there at night I think, maybe they would play some nice musics, as at our arrival no musics were played.

Ci' Wibi started taking some pictures with her mirrorless camera, but the manager came to her and said the regulation there not to take the interior pictures with cameras. Hmmph.. I think they lose some opportunities for free advertisement from foodies and bloggers like us.

So we stopped taking the interior pictures, she said we could only took the interior pictures if there was someone inside the photo. So, we tried to "fool" the rule, until all of the foodies attended the lunch and...... CAMERA'S EVERYWHERE! So the manager stopped noticing us about the rule. :p

I love the interior, especially the bar! But, there was no separation for smoking and non-smoking room, so guys take a deep breath for those who don't smoke.

VIP Room.

So industrial, the picture on the wall is so art-deco!

So classy, feel like back to 30's.

Metal things are also used for decorations.

Check out its wallpaper.

Feel so Gatsby?

Hmm... I guess a letter is playing hide and seek in this photo.

Again, the miscellanous things inside.

Like playing inside the lab, but with drinks.

The bar.

The foods
Here are the foods we ordered, enjoy the food parade.

Let's order!

Salted Egg Spagetti with Champignon Mushroom. (Rp 89.000)
At the first time I saw this I didn't think that it used..... SALTED EGG? This fusion spagetti was cooked al dente, so yummy, but you can't taste the salted egg at the very first time you eat it. Served with champignon mushroom, cherry tomato and fresh basil. Recommend you to try this unique spagetti.

Jack Daniel's Coke and Chicken Wing. (Rp 71.000)
The chicken wings are infused with Cola and Jack Daniel's bourbon and glazed with sweet cola, served with orange dipping. Sounds interesting right? But I couldn't taste the Cola or even the Jack Daniel's infusion, the taste was quiet weird for me, So the thing you have to do is dipping the wings into the orange dipping, the chicken taste's becomes so yummy.

Country Side Roasted Chicken Half. (Rp 75.000)
A full body organic chicken served chicken gravy, country potato, and mixed greens. The chicken was easy to cut, and the gravy was yummy! Perfect for sharing, looking from its size.

Capelline Aglio Olio with White Wine Baramundi. (Rp 95.000)
This one is angel hair served with garlic white wine sauce, black olives, dried tomato, and pan-seared baramundi. No exception for this one, both of baramundi and cappelini cooked perfectly. You can choose the alternative menu with king prawn (Rp 125.000).

Pan-Seared Pork Belly. (Rp 137.000)
Pork belly cooked sous vide for 20 hours, served with cider vinegar roasted apple and white beans cassoulet. The taste seems great after you read the previous sentence, right? However, the seasoning wasn't satisfying, I didn't feel anything, but thank goodness the skin's crispiness level was perfect.

Bacon Wrapped John Dory. (Rp 85.000)
MY FAVORITE! Beef bacon served with coriander pesto, rattatouille foam, buttered pasta and seared baby cos. What a great dish, a yummy dory wrapped with beef bacon. So in love with this one. Unfortunately, the beef bacon was little bit salty, but still tolerable. Recommended to try.

Actually I didn't try these foods below, so I can't tell you my opinion about the foods, but I think those can't be missed to be shared to you. So here are the photos.

Capellini Aglio Oilio with White Wine King Prawn. (Rp 125.000)

Truffle Cream Orechiette Salmon. (Rp 99.000)

Green Curry Baramundi. (Rp 95.000)

The drinks
Here were some drinks we ordered.

Honeydew juice. (Rp 45.000)

Arnold Parmer Lemonade (Rp 35.000)

 Mango and Lychee Breeze. (Rp 48.000)

Grannysmith Tea. (Rp 40.000)

Mine is Grannysmith Tea, it's an apple tea with lemongrass and green syrup, recommended to try. Anyway, do you know if Hide and Seek also has a special drink like its name? It's Hide and Seek Special Drink, you can't peep at it as it's full wrapped and you can only sip it from the straw. About the taste? Psst.. it's secret, go and taste by yourself then!

Hide and Seek! (Rp 99.000)


  • Overall, the foods were great, but pricey for me.
  • Super love the interior, especially the installation in the bar wall.
  • To be honest, the service was bad. At the first time we arrived the manager was little bit unfriendly, especially when she told about the rule of taking pictures of interior. After that, the foods were taking super duper long long time to serve... although they were only us and 2-3 people inside at that time.
  • But actually, the waiters were so nice and always smiling to us.
  • Couldn't connect to the wi-fi, tsk. ;(
  • Recommend you to come here in the afternoon if you don't smoke, the place is quiet empty.

Let's hide and seek, then eat.
