Mykonos Restaurant and Bar

On our last trip we went for a wander up Jalan Laksmana, as we were told that there is many goof quality homewares shops and boutique shopping.

Yes, there were some boutique shops that were very nice, but not exactly what I was looking for.  I was trying to get some new and refreshing ideas for my business and to take home with me.

Of course lunch time rolled around and we were starting to feel a little peckish.  We had also heard about the many great restaurants in this strip and many are highly recommended in the Lonely Planet guide.  Well, many of these places are not open for lunch – damn, damn, damn.

We kept walking up the street trying to find somewhere to eat and have a cold drink when we came across Mykonos Restaurant and Bar.  The menu was enticing, we grabbed a table under a fan and ordered a cold drink while we contemplated the menu.

In fact, there was quite a bit to choose from on the menu.  My husband had the grilled snapper fillet which was excellent and I had a beef yiros, which was far superior to anything I have had at home here in Darwin.  The taste and tenderness of the meat was superb.  I was extremely keen to have the freshly made honey puffs, but the meal was more than satisfying, so guess what we will have to go back.

What fascinated us, was the kitchen staff were all Indonesian – Asian people seem to be able to turn their hand to any type of cooking – they are so clever.  The food tasted authentic and we did eat everything on the plate.

Our bill came to IDR Rp 116 600 (AUS $14).

When we came back to Darwin we were joking with a couple of our friends, who incidentally are Greek, saying that of all places we ended up in was a Greek restaurant for lunch.  Whilst they hadn’t been to this restaurant, they had heard about it amongst their crowd and it has a good reputation.  Oh, the drinks are icy cold here!

Ive been to this place, it was very dirty inside and out, and the food tasted like ass.
