The 3 storeys building is exactly located across Cacaote, Amber has 3 themed floors : Pastry Boutique on the first floor, Library on the second floor, and rooftop bar on the third floor.
The first floor is super fancy, with lovely pastel colors (especially green) everywhere, I love this place so much. Cakes placed on the sides, and a table with chocolates and bags on it placed in the center. Go to the second floor, you can choose to go up with stairs or an elevator. The place were more packed than the first floor. It was an combination of woods, warm lighting, cement wall, and books. The third floor has more glamourous ambience with colorful + unique table lamp and remarkable flying birds installation art on the bar wall.

Sweet Potato (Rp 8.000)
A long and round bread made from potato and topped with sugar powder. But ergh.... it was so hard to cut this bread, and need extra patience to cut it without make your knife slipped and hit the plate hardly (ehm, like I did). Luckily, the bread inside was soft and but not as sweet as I thought.

 
Caramel Choco (Rp 40.000)
Cute presentation, but it wasn't as big as the Chocolate Sasha. The outer layer of this cake is chewy like a jelly, for you who may like trying cakes with the new variation, this cake suits you. But for me, I choose the inner layer instead.

 
Chocolate Sasha (Rp 40.000)
Chocolate? YES PLEASE! This one is made from many layers of chocolate, as you can see on the picture below. Start it with brownies cake with some pieces of almond nuts at the lowest layer, some chocolate mousse, a thin layer of chocolate, chocolate mousse again on top, chocolate, chocolate, and chocolate again and finished with round chocolate (or nuts, I forget) on top. The cake was easy enough to cut, the taste was strong and bold. As the chocolate lover I marked this one as one of the most delicious chocolate cake I ever ate, recommended!

 
Reach the rooftop on the forth floor, it isn't spacious and only consists three tables with sofa, the view is SCBD area. One of the foodies asked the waiter and he said the minimum order is Rp 3.000.000 for a table.
Consists three different themes in every floor, just hopping from one floor to another floor if you're bored. And the themes aren't boring for me, made this place is SO NICE!
Mostly the foods worths with the size and taste. Lovely hospitality, especially when Chef Ganesha visited our table and the lovely waiters. But frankly speaking, the minimum order of sitting in rooftop is Rp 3.000.000 for me and fellow foodies not too worth. Maybe they could rethink about the minimum order policy.
Sure, Amber is a recommended place to visit not only once. smile

This is the most famous sky rooftop at Jakarta, giving you a beautiful view of Jakarta city from the center of the town. Located on the 56th floor of BCA Tower and Grand Indonesia, you can go to SKYE through the special elevator which located behind Gramedia Grand Indonesia. The frontliner welcomed us nicely (maybe because we dressed up and it suited the attire rule), but first she asked us to show our ID card first.

Nutella Cake
Sized quiet large for me, served with chocolate stick that rounds the cake itself and nuts as the topping. The chocolate cake itself was moist and I liked it, unexpectedly.... there was a layer of chocolate ice cream on bottom, chocolate in every layer! This dessert is perfect for sharing.

 
Chocolate Souffle Cake
Served with strawberry sauce, and Bailey's ice cream. The souffle had some soft crust at the top and was moist inside, the strawberry sauce was warm when I poured it onto the souffle, I chose to eat it together with the ice cream, the taste of the Bailey's overwhelmed the ice cream and it was so good. Kinda recommend you this.

 
Tiramisu
Actually this dessert came in big size, well, it is served inside a glass scoop with chocolate lady fingers and crisp chocolate balls. The tiramisu itself tasted creamy yet so light, I could even finish all of this late night in the scoop without feeling so guilty, I love this one! Recommend this.

 
Forget-Me-Not
Asked the waiter the most anticipated drink of SKYE, and he will recommend you this, the signature drink of SKYE. The blue colored mocktail with slice of lemons and apples inside, at the first time you drink it the sour overwhelmed, but the after taste was little bit sweet yet refreshing. The name itself suits with the taste, that you can't quickly forget, as you sip once, you want it more.

Red Velvet
The red creamy ice blend mocktail with whipping cream on top. Yep, it's like eating red velvet in drink version, love this one too. Recommend this one.

 
Christmas Cupid
If I'm not mistaken, this one is special drink in Christmas season. Named Christmas Cupid, this pink colored drink came with beautiful presentation, served in bordeaux wine glass. The taste (I guess) was pomegranate, as I found some pomegranate inside this drink.

 
Read some reviews from people, sometimes some people got rejected to enter SKYE, and read some inconsistency of doing the rule. Well, I would like to highlight the the second thing, my friend said to me to see the girl that sat near the pool, she used DSLR (with external flash plugged on it!), and me? Just wanna enjoy my night and still saved my DSLR inside my handbag, didn't want to have any business with the security. :')
But, the securities on outdoor lounge (I counted them, they were four) were so nice and helpful (in spite of having unfriendly impression at the first time). They helped us a lot of taking pictures with mobile phone. Overall, nothing disappointed us at our visit.

Artsy Christmas Dinner at RoCA Smile Dec 28, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Barat | Hotel Restaurant

Located in right section of the first storey in Artotel Indonesia, the urban boutique hotel which applies art in every single place you will see inside of it, you can RoCA see it directly from outside. Actually, it's like eating in the lobby itself, as RoCA is just separated with some flowers so the lobby divided into two sections. But, RoCA has clear separation between the smoking and non-smoking room (the smoking room located in an alley behind the wall, will show you the photo later). Although the space isn't so spacious, but you can see how artsy the dining space is.

Orange Chicken Rice with Sweet and Sour Sauce. (Rp 52.000)
Actually I didn't try the fried rice, but my friend said the fried rice tasted good with orange scent. Looking inside the hot plate and you will see how generous they give you the chicken meat, the sauce was great anyway.

 
Beer Battered Jumbo Fish and Chips. (Rp 68.000)
Served with tartar sauce, look-like-wasabi sauce (the green one, had no any idea what it was) and lemon. To be honest, I was shocked for seeing it for the first time, it was SO JUMBO for paying only Rp 68.000 to get a portion of fish and chips! Battered with the perfect crispiness and generous french fries below the fish itself.

 
Chicken Cordon Bleu. (Rp 98.000)
The most tempting one! The portion was even bigger than the Beer Battered Jumbo Fish and Chips (for me), so I expected the good taste of this. Frankly speaking, the cheese wasn't mozarella cheese. It was like from the melted cheese from the famous brand of cheddar cheese, two of my friends said they couldn't finish all of their Chicken Cordon Bleus as the taste of the cheese was too dominant and they couldn't stand of it. In spite of that, the chicken meat was battered perfectly and well seasoned.

 
Spagetti Marinara. (Rp 72.000)
Little bit disappointed of seeing the portion at the first time, as I expected the fantastic portion after seeing Beer Battered Jumbo Fish and Chip and Chicken Cordon Bleu. But anyway, the sauce was great for me, the spagetti cooked al dente, the medium sized prawns were given generously (if compared with the other restaurants'), and the unexpected thing was... my stomack was super full after eating this one, so don't judge this spagetti marinara from its cover.

 
Nice venue, good foods in RoCA come with good taste and even affordable price (for having a dinner in A HOTEL!), and Artotel also has the always smiling and helpful officers who help people a lot especially in taking pictures! 

Thanks Artotel for giving us so artsy Christmas dinner experience with the best hospitality, will visit Artotel again for sure. *double thumbs up* smile

Recommend you to come to Artotel in day, I came there at night and kinda found a lot of difficulties in taking pictures with my camera as the venue was quiet dark, and so many photo spots (especially the staircase) are good when taken in day.

Paradise Inn Puri Indah Mall Smile Dec 24, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Kumpul Keluarga

Paradise Inn aims to give you a new level of enjoying Chinese foods, brings a nostalgic themes of enjoying Chinese food in this modern time with double-boiled soups and fushion dishes, teahouse and dessert house. The concept used is making you comfortable inside the Chinese traditional inn, as you can see at the interior photos below. Based in Singapore, in here, Paradise Inn is run by Boga Group, one of the famous F&B companies in Indonesia.

Enough, let the pictures talk! So here were the foods I tried. lol

Crisp-fried Eggplant Tossed (IDR 28.000)

An appetizer by Paradise Inn, the eggplant battered and fried with chicken floss as topping. Crispy outside and soft inside, well.. anyway I don't like eating eggplant to be honest. But at the first time I ate this I didn't even knew if this was eggplant. Tasted good for me, and Paradise Inn succeeded to make me love eating eggplant for the first time. smile

 
Hot Plate Tofu with Preserved “Cai Xin” and Minced Pork (Small - Rp 48.000 / Medium - Rp 68.000)

Meh, this one was one of my favorite at that night. The tofu was soft and sauted with minced pork and mushroom sauce. Psst... tell you a secret, at the bottom of the hot plate, it was coated with egg. So, how about finding it by yourself? Just order this one.

 
Poached Chinese Spinach with Egg Trio and Minced Pork in Superior Stock (Rp 58.000)

Hmm... never saw spinach soup with this good looking LOL. The spinach came with three different kinds of egg and various fillings. Tasted delicious and the spinach was cooked perfectly, perfect for those of you who likes eating fried or roasted foods in the opening of your dinner and eat this one when it's still hot. Yumm...

 
Crisp Pork Ribs with Marmite Sauce (Rp 88.000)

Pork pork pork! This one is the signature dish of Paradise Inn. The meat was soft, but little bit dry at the side where the meat was little bit thin. Served with yummy marmite sauce, the medium pieces came with the rib bones. The taste was more sweet than to savory. Recommend to eat this one while it's still hot.

 
Prawn Mayonnaise with Katsuobushi (Small - Rp 88.000 / Medium - Rp 108.000)

My favorite! First time I saw this I don't have any idea what it was, because all on the plate served was all full of katsuoboshi, some flakes of dried fish which you can see in some Japanese snacks. Tried to find something under the katsuoboshi.... and well, found the medium sized prawn with mayonnaise. The prawns were fresh and crispy fried.

 
The price worths for every foods you order here, and they have nice contemporary interior which makes you feel so homey. And the foods anyway... feels like paradise! Thank you Paradise Inn and OpenRice Indonesia for the night. smile

I knew this place since I was in high school, it's located very near from my high school I attended. Markas is very known as the billiard venue, and sometimes me and friends went to (ex) Stroberi Cafe which used to located below Markas. And now, Markas relaunched with new concept and more space (they now use the first storey too) as one stop entertainment for everyone.

Located in Tanjung Duren, there are a lot services and entertainment for you. There are Mbrio Beer House, Garazh Family Karaoke, Dragonfly Reflexology and iEat. The venue was held in iEat, it's a food court located in first floor which uses electronic payment. First time you come to eat, you will use some electronic voucher card that you can get in the booth near the door.

From "Sushi Love Bento" Stall

Spicy Ramen (Rp 35.000)

Named "Spicy Ramen", but for me this is not too spicy. I love the broth, so mild and not too milky, the spiciness level at that time made the broth perfect for me. It worths for paying Rp 35.000 to get this tasty ramen.

 
Crunchy Dragon Ball (Rp 25.000)

Look at that face, tee-hee. I'm a crunchy sushi lover, so I made this one as my favorite. Served in 8 slices, with prawns inside and sesame seeds.

 
Salmon Melted

Love this one too! Kinda recommend you to try this one. The salmon slices kinda big with nice texture and served with some tempting melts on top.

 
Chicken Floss (Rp 30.000)

I'm not a floss lover but it was okay for me, as you can see on the picture below they gave less floss on the sushi. But the feeling inside the sushi were given generously.

 
Caterpillar Roll 

Made like caterpilllar, this one was really cute. The feelings inside this sushi were scrambled egg and nori, for those of you who love fusion sushi, try this one, caterpillar roll served with avocado on top.

 

 
The bonus one for us, assorted sushi in plate!

From "Traza" Stall

Nasi Goreng Cakalang (Rp 29.000)

The rice were little bit drier than I expected at the first time I tried, but it tasted good.

 
Chicken Wing Spicy Lemongrass (Rp 30.000)

Who doesn't love chicken wing? Me likey!!!! Served in 6 pieces, this menu was one of my favorite at that night. Cooked nicely, juicy and the skin was crispy.

 
From "Pizza Pazzo" Stall

Pizza Quatro (Rp 99.000)

Served in 8 slices, this square pizza came with arious toppings such as meats, sausage, bellpepper, and mozarella cheese. The typical of this pizza is like American Pizza, the bread is thicker than Italian Pizza. I also recommend this one, nice for sharing.

 
Pake Nero (Rp 33.000)

At the first time I don't have any idea what it was LOL. It's a bread with various toppings, and the most catchy one of this menu is the buns which sliced not too thin but not too thick, but black colored. The color comes from the use of bamboo charcoal, which has many benefits for health such as anti aging, detoxification and many else. The toppings were so-so for me, but hey, the buns were soft. Just let yourself try this unique and healthy food. ;)

 
Nero Lasagna (Rp 55.000)

Hmmm.... I thought at the first time this was just an ordinary lasagna. But when I sliced it, I got surprised, as the lasagna was also black colored like Pake Nero! Nothing but the lasagna was good enough for me.

 
From "Kopitime" Stall

Sapi Lada Hitam (Rp 50.000)

Sapi Lada Hitam, the one that should be ordered when me and family are having a lunch in Chinese restaurant LOL. This one tasted good for me, and easy to chew. *munch munch*

 
Nasi Lemak Komplit (Rp 35.000)

All in one! Here's the Nasi Lemak, served with balado egg, fried chicken, scrambled egg, anchovy, some chips and sambal. Tasted the rice, but in my opinion the coconut milk wasn't added too much, so it felt like eating a regular rice.

 
Roti Bakar Nutella Keju 

Roti Bakar = I like it, Nutella = one of the superb things in my life, how about Roti Bakar Nutella? ME LIKEY! Yeay, this one was heaven, really suits to my favorite typical of toast! Cheese lover, brace yourself of the generous cheddar cheese they will give.

 
Strawberry Smoothies

The dinner was closed with strawberry smoothies, tasted light and creamy. I don't know which stall sells this one in iEat but some of friends there said you can get it from the bar outside the iEat.

 
So many variants of food served at that night I like, and I love the ambience inside iEat, so cozy and kinda homey for me. Hungry? Just go to iEat, you can get many variants of food, sit and enjoy them in nice indoor room, and perhaps you can get yourself relaxing massage at Dragonfly Reflexology, or having good time with friends in Mbrio Beer House, or maybe karaoke-ing together with full stomack in Garazh Family Karaoke after finished all of those good and affordable foods in iEat, LOL.

The last but not the least, thank you OpenRice Indonesia for the opportunity of joining the foodie gathering, and thank you for the good people I met there at that time, so lucky to know you all. smile
