Usually, when people talk about eating Padang food, I believe what comes into your mind is a simple depot with natural air conditioner (read: No AC) located by the side of the road, where you'll sweat a lot while enjoying your dishes. Or something better might be a restaurant, where all the dishes will be displayed on your table, then you can immediately choose which one to have. But still, the restaurant must be the one having very simple design, where people merely care about what they eat, instead of the ambiance.

 

 

 

 

 
Dining in Marco, you will surely get a totally new experience in enjoying Padang cuisines. Marco try to create a breakthrough by letting the guests enjoying luscious Padang
dishes in a first-class ambiance. Offering Padang Peranakan cuisines, the spacious venue brings out classic and elegant design. Looking by the restaurant only, you might even not notice that it’s a Padang restaurant. Not to mention the service, which is highly pleasant as well. All the waiters and waitresses deliver very warm greetings and are highly responsive to any of the guests’ requests (including taking quite many pictures of my foodie friends and I tongue ). Thanks to the waitress as well for all the recommended dishes she informed to us and here were the ones served on our table.

 

 

 

 
Nasi Sayo (Ramas) (IDR 21k)

 

Rice is definitely a must every time you have Padang dishes. This time, we ordered Nasi Sayo or commonly known as Nasi Ramas. Some of you might have been familiar with those two names, while some might have not yet. So basically, it’s rice coming from Solok with Padang’s sauces and chilis. As what you have been familiar with, when you dine in any Padang restaurants, you will get many sauces poured on your rice in order to give you richer taste to be enjoyed. The same exactly went to this one. I loved all the sauces mixed on the plate. I could even say that I had been very happy though I was only given this to eat.

Gado-gado Padang (IDR 35k)

 
However, you needn’t worry as my friends and I did not only eat that Nasi Sayo without adding any other dishes as the ‘toppings’. So the first additional dish we ordered was basically the veggie element, Gado-gado Padang. Mixing tofu and boiled egg with various veggies including cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, and bean sprouts; and then pouring peanut sauce on top of it, I personally think there’s no much difference between Padang’s Gado-gado with Jakarta’s one. Since I’m indeed a fan of this traditional dish, I really enjoyed this one. Just one thing, I wished they could give more peanut sauce so it would be even more delicious.

Belut Lado Ijo (IDR 39k)

 

 
I often eat eel but it used to be only in Japanese restaurant, which is Unagi. I’m really mad of it as I admire both the texture and the taste. However, I’ve never tried eel in Indonesian version. So this was my first time and unexpectedly, I fell in love at the first try with Indonesian’s eel. Having it cooked with traditional recipe from Bukittinggi, which was using green chili sauce, this eel version has successfully blown my mind away. The texture of the eel was indulgingly crispy and the sauce was a perfect balance of savoury and spicy taste.

Randang Itam (IDR 35k)

 
Randang! The beef-based dish, which I’ve never missed in every single time I dine in Padang restaurant. I extremely adore it and therefore, I also wanted to try Marco’s version of it.
Guess what happened? Marco made me get addicted to Randang even more! The beef was flawlessly cooked as it was so tender and juicy. Moreover, hands down to the sauce! It did pamper my taste bud until I could not stop eating the sauce though the beef’s already gone.

Ayam Pop (IDR 28k)

 

 
Looking at the picture, you might wonder whether I’ve mistakenly written the dish name. No, I’m not. This was indeed Marco’s version of Ayam Pop. Appearance and taste wise, for me this was more suitable to be called as fried chicken instead of Ayam Pop. However, since the taste was succulent as it was well-seasoned; who cares about the name, or whether it’s similar to the common Ayam Pop or not.

Soto Padang (IDR 39k)

 
Another not-to-be-missed one was this Soto Padang. For me, this was certainly a very rich blend of spices. Though I couldn’t name all the ingredients used for the broth, I could assure you that this dish would cause you an addiction. Besides, the presentation was awesome as well and I believe you’ve never seen such appearance for Soto Padang in your entire life. Please note, don’t forget to mix it with the lime and chili sauce to get the heavenly taste!

Dendeng Batokok (IDR 51k)

 
Finally, the award winner of all the dishes I’ve tried at Marco, Dendeng Batokok! One word
for this traditional recipe from Kerinci, I.M.P.R.E.S.S.I.V.E! For all of you who plan to dine soon in Marco, trust me, you will surely regret if you don’t order this one. As the beef was thinly sliced, the texture became appetizingly crispy. Most importantly, the scrumptious sauce, which was basically made of sweet soy sauce, red onion, and various spices. Together, they have created the best Dendeng Batokok ever!

Hot Tea (IDR 15k)

 

 
At first, I felt quite reluctant to dine in Marco as I thought why bother I should pay that much
just for Padang dishes. However, my mind turned 180 degree upon trying their dishes. Though it was quite pricey and the portion was indeed tiny, Marco did deserve a try from any Padang dish lover. It was doubtlessly a delightful dining experience!

Ohka, The Hidden Treasure in PIK Smile Dec 31, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Jepang | Restaurant | Ramen | Kumpul Keluarga


PIK has been well-known as one of the foods paradises in our beloved capital city, Jakarta, and from the abundant restaurants available there, Japanese foods are one of the best-selling ones. If I ask you to mention 5 Japanese restaurants in PIK, you might easily do it. However, I’m pretty sure that many of you are still unaware of Ohka. So, let me introduce you to this impressive Japanese restaurant I just visited last weekend.

 

 

 

 
Located close to the currently happening Shirayuki, Ohka is very easy to be found. Actually, this restaurant is not a new comer in PIK. Nevertheless, the traffic’s mostly created by Japanese instead of Indonesian. For me, this restaurant is like a hidden treasure, which I’ve just found. The first thing from Ohka, which I immediately fell for, was the design. Bringing out the theme of authentic Japanese, you could see wooden furnitures, lanterns, and sakura at every corner. The venue is quite spacious, providing both indoor and outdoor areas. The outdoor one was so lovely as it was complemented with trees scenery, making you feel as if you were dining in Japan. Unfortunately, it was quite hot there so we preferred to dine in the indoor one.

 

 

 

 

 
At my visit, the restaurant was very crowded. I even had to wait until I finished my lunch then I could took a picture of the venue tongue. Happily, my friends and I did receive very welcome service from the manager and the waitresses. They quickly set a table for us and immediately offered the menu when we've just arrived at the restaurant. As we were still clueless about what to order, they then came up with their best-sellers. So, let’s check what’s on our table.

 
Karaage Miso Ramen (IDR 56k small / IDR 60k large)

 
Visiting Japanese restaurant, Ramen’s definitely a must. This time, we had 3 kinds of it. The first one was this Karaage Miso Ramen. Serving the combination of boiled egg, cloud ear fungus (jamur kuping hitam), corn, and kaarage; this bowl delivered a rich combination from the simple ingredients. The noodles were perfectly cooked and the texture as just right. Besides, the broth was delightful as well as you could taste the mixture of spices once it touched your taste bud.

Karaage Spicy Miso Ramen (IDR 56k small / IDR 60k large)

 
For you who loved spicier version of Ramen, then you might go with this one. It was exactly similar to the previous one, but for this, you would have spicier broth. For me who was a spicy dish lover, I preferred this one.

Karaage Miso Tsukemen (IDR 56k small / IDR 60k large)

 

 

 
This third ramen dish we had was surely the most unique. The noodles and the toppings were placed into one bowl, while the broth was intentionally put in a separated bowl. Why? Because the way to eat was by dipping the noodles and the toppings into the broth before having it coming into your tummy. The broth of this dish was slightly thicker compared to the previous two and I guessed it contained more spices. This one was my favorite among the three as I could enjoy more variations of taste, especially in the broth.

Niku Udon (IDR 60k ala carte / IDR 80k mini-mini set)

 
Another version of Japanese noodle, which was also not-to-be-missed here, was udon. For this one, we had Niku Udon, which was basically udon with soup and sliced beef topping. It was a very simple yet succulent dish. I really loved idea of balancing the thick and chewy noodle with the thin clear broth. Moreover, the tasty sliced beef was indeed a perfect complement to this dish.

Gindara Teriyaki Set (IDR 50k ala carte / IDR 65k set)

 

 
As what commonly said, Indonesian has not eaten if they haven’t had rice. So, let’s just move on to the rice-based dishes. If we have had beef and chicken for the noodles menu, for this first rice-based dish we had fish. This grilled gindara came with moist meat inside and crispy skin outside. Unfortunately, the teriyaki sauce was slightly too salty. Reducing the salt a little bit, I believed this dish would taste wonderful. Furthermore, you were also given the option to have it in set, in which the dish would be accompanied by salad and side dishes.

 
Tori Katsuni Don (IDR 64k ala carte / IDR 80k mini-mini set)

 

 
Back to chicken again, I believe all of you have been very familiar to this Tori Katsuni Don. I myself often ordered this dish in any Japanese restaurants I visited. If you were in the same ship with me, I recommended you to give a try on Ohka’s version. It was a pleasing one as the batter had the right thickness, the chicken was tender, the egg was yummy, and the veggies flawlessly added the healthy component. Additionally, the Japanese rice also impressed me as it was so flabby. Super love this!

Chicken Katsu Curry Rice (IDR 68k)

 

 
Finally, my most favorite dish of the day, Chicken Katsu Curry Rice! Yes, I’m indeed a Japanese curry addict. However, I rarely found Japanese restaurant in Jakarta, whose curry could satisfy my preference. Might be it was because of my high benchmark, which is a restaurant in Surabaya, specializing in Japanese curry called Curry House (you should try it when you go to Surabaya). Ok back to this dish, surprisingly I was in love with Ohka’s Japanese curry! The chicken was basically similar to the one in the don. What was distinctive was the curry sauce, which impeccably pampered my taste bud. I would surely go back for this one!

Hot Ocha (IDR 8k free flow)

 
Eating Japanese foods wouldn’t be complete without having ocha as the signature beverage. Yes, this drink was indeed simple, but it definitely could come up as the perfect match to the heavy lunch we’ve just had. The Ocha is available in both hot and cold. PS: Their ocha’s free-flow so you can drink as much as you wish.

Mochi Ice Cream (IDR 18k each)

 

 
Since there’s always room for desserts, so here was the mochi ice cream to perfectly end the lunch. There were seven flavors of them, represented by different colors; cheesecake (yellow), chocolate (chocolate), vanilla (blue), strawberry (pink), green tea (green), tiramisu (brown), and cookies and cream (white). All of them nicely suited my palate, besides the green tea one which I thought having too strong scent. My most favorite among all was Tiramisu as for me, the taste was inimitable.

 
In a nutshell, I really enjoy my dining experience in Ohka. I was really pleased with the warm service and I was mesmerized by the exquisite design. Not to mention, all the dishes which were not only eye-catchy, but also succulently tasted. Talking about price, it was approximately similar to other Japanese restaurants. Rather than stay being curious, you might give it a try smile

Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Bubur | Kumpul Keluarga


Located at the heaven for Chinese Food Lovers, Bubur Ayam Mangga Besar has been long well known as one of the best chicken porridge in Jakarta. You will almost always meet a long queue before able to get a seat here. Similar to any typical traditional Chinese restaurant, the venue doesn't have any particular design theme and it's indeed hot inside.

 

 
One unique fact, you cannot see any menu and there is no waiter who'll come to your table and ask for your order. Instead, you have to immediately tell your order by yourself right to the owner, who's stand by at the front part. At first, I was quite confused which one should I order as I’ve never dined in this restaurant before and I was totally clueless. Thanks to the queue, I could see what the people before me ordered and I then knew how to do so.

 

 
Basically, you were given several options for the carbo-dish; jasmine rice, Hainanese rice, plain porridge, and fish porridge; all of which would come with cakwe. Then for the toppings, there were lots of choices, which can be mixed and served together in a big plate together with sliced ginger and fermented pak choy (sayur asin). They were steamed chicken, fried chicken, chicken liver, grilled duck, boiled egg, and even century
egg/preserved egg (telur pitan).

Another signature dish they had was tofu with sweet sauce. You were free to choose which toppings you desired, including the quantity for each.

So here was what my family and I opted for our supper at that night.

Tofu with Soy Sauce

 
If I might say, this tofu could be called as the appetizer here. As I mentioned before, it was also the signature dish here, which all guests would definitely order. This dish might look so simple but once it entered your mouth, your mind would immediately be blown away as it was SO SO GOOD! The tofu was so moist and you could strongly feel the soy sauce taste even until the middle part of the tofu. As the sweetness level was impeccably balanced, this light dish was surely able to be a seamless starter.

Fish Porridge with Cakwe

 
I always love eating hot porridge. In fact, I find it hard to eat porridge if it’s not served hot, yes extremely hot is actually my most favorite. This time, the porridge served here perfectly suited my preference. The texture was precise as well as it’s neither too dry, nor too watery. Unfortunately, I could barely find fish inside the bowl. Thanks to the
abundant toppings in front of me, because they did come as flawless substitutes to the fish.

Boiled Egg
I actually did not know how to call this one in English as in Bahasa, it’s called as Telur
Kecap. I just felt it weird to mention it as ‘Egg with Soy Sauce’ or ‘Soy Sauce Egg’. Thus, I called it as Boiled Egg instead. Actually, they did serve plain boiled egg here, for which they used duck’s egg. While this Telur Kecap was actually boiled egg, which was cooked with soy sauce. It was slightly sweet and the texture was chewy. The egg yolk’s color was orange as it was duck’s egg.

Chicken Liver
Not much thing could be said about this. Simply said, it was well-seasoned and indeed enjoyable.

 
Steamed Chicken
If you were a Chinese cuisines lover or maybe Singaporean dishes enthusiast, I believe you’ve been very familiar with this steamed chicken. Yes, usually people enjoy it with Hainanese rice. The steamed chicken served in this restaurant was so lovely. It was perfectly boiled that the texture was so tender. It was well-seasoned as well, making this healthy dish tasted so yummy.

Fried Chicken
If previously I said that the steamed chicken was great, then this fried chicken was way even better! Similar to the steamed one, the texture was unquestionably soft as well. But, this one came with one plus point, which was the heavenly crispy skin! Cooked with the sweet sauce, it was just unexplainable by words. Please note that I was not over-exaggerating this. Wait until you try it by yourself and don’t blame me if it causes you
addiction.

 
Overall, I really enjoyed my dining experience in Bubur Ayam Mangga Besar. I was so happy that finally I could try this super well-known Chinese dish, which so many people have told me since long time ago. The taste was indeed superb as what people have said. It surely deserved repeating visit smile

First time coming to Otel Lobby, I thought the restaurant was closed as the entrance door was tightly closed and there was no one standing in front of the restaurant. I was still standing in front of the door when the waitress suddenly opened it and greeted me. First-time looking at the design, I was stunned for a few seconds. I knew that the restaurant’s name was Otel Lobby but I didn’t expect that it exactly looked like the lobby of a hotel. I was super impressed with the idea they used for the interior. They highly paid attention to details as it wasn’t only the furniture that tried to give you the hotel ambiance. There were also supplements like receptionist desk, stairs, big clock, suitcases, and even trolleys.

 

 

 
This restaurant was highly spacious, providing both indoor and outdoor area. As it brought out the hotel theme, you could find various versions of tables and chairs; the long one with many chairs, the small squared one, and even the round one with round chair. The outdoor area was nicely decorated as well though it was indeed quite hot to sit there.

Another fun fact, the head chef of Otel Lobby is actually the co-owner as well. Experienced in French cuisines, she delivered the fusion of French and Indonesian taste in Otel Lobby. Moreover, to provide the guests with high-quality dishes, Otel Lobby built close relationships with local farmers to get the finest raw materials for what they served.

 
Talking about the service, unfortunately I was quite disappointed with it. Based on what I saw, the restaurant had quite many waiters and waitresses. However, when I wanted to make my order, it took them quite long to finally come to my table. Moreover, another long time was taken to prepare for the dishes, while at that time, there were only few guests dining in. When I finally had the food served on the table, I was just hoping for one thing, the dishes should be impressive to cure my displeasure.

Soft Warm Bun with Beef (IDR 50k/2pcs)

 

 
As the appetizer, I had this soft warm bun, which was mostly known as bakpao. They had 3 choices of toppings; crispy duck, chicken, and beef. This time I picked beef. Having my first bite, I was so happy that my wish came true. Combining grilled beef, cucumber, onion, mayonnaise, and fried onion on top; this dish was surely a perfect curer for my mood and it was indeed a flawless starter. The beef was so tender and not greasy at all, while the bun was so moist. Luscious!

Grilled Beef Tongue (IDR 125k)

 
Moving to the main course, I had Grilled Beef Tongue, which was served with housemade kimchi and garlic fried rice. I was not sure what was put on top of the beef tongue, but it looked like foam and it didn’t have any significant flavor. Taste wise, both my friend who was a tongue-lover as well as I who was the opposite, thought that there was nothing special with the beef tongue as it was just similar to the common one we had in other places. However, we did love the taste of the garlic fried rice as it was well-seasoned and the garlic touch was strong enough.

Beef Wellington (IDR 185k)

 
The next beef-themed dish I had was Beef Wellington, which was basically grilled beef served with mushroom duxelles and puff pastry. This dish came in quite huge portion, so no wonder it was quite pricey. Stuffed into the puff pastry, the beef was juicy and tender, despite that it was a little bit too salty. Moreover, I really loved the crispy texture of the puff pastry, which came as the perfect companion to the beef.

BBQ Beef, Parmigiano, and Garlic Chip Pizza (IDR 85k)

 
The last beef dish on the table was this stone-baked pizza. Mainly topped with generous amount of barbeque beef, this dish successfully pampered my taste bud. The pizza crust itself tried to deliver the fusion of French and Indonesian as it was neither too thin, nor too thick. Besides the beef, the pizza was even enriched with additional toppings of Parimigiano and garlic chip, giving more scrumptious flavor to be enjoyed.

Roasted Chicken (IDR 85k)

 
This roasted chicken was the only chicken dish of Otel Lobby, which I’ve tried. Distinctive from the common roasted chicken I had had in other restaurants, this time it’s served with fried rice and bread salad. I guessed the chef wanted to give Indonesian touch on this dish as well, as you know that when an Indonesian hasn’t had rice, he hasn’t eaten yet. As you might have guessed, this dish was really fulfilling since the chicken portion was huge and it was accompanied by fried rice. Nevertheless, it was really gratifying until the very last spoon as the doneness level of the chicken was precise and the taste was unquestionably delightful. Not to mention, the yummy fried rice and the refreshing salad; both of which came as additional happiness for me.

Grilled Salmon (IDR 115k)

 
Having had beef and chicken, now it’s the turn for fish. The beautifully grilled salmon came with braised shiitake, spinach, and wasabi mashed potato. Again, the salmon’s portion was satisfying and it was cooked into perfection. The crispy skin was a mind-blowing one, which you definitely wanted to keep, to be enjoyed after you finished any other components of the dish. The shiitake and the spinach together added not only more flavor, but also more healthy components into the plate. Lastly, the mashed potato which was simply enjoyable with its soft and creamy texture.

Slow Cooked Salmon (IDR 115k)

 
Another salmon but with different cooking style. This time, it was served with confit potato and hollandaise sauce. Though I really enjoyed the previous one, this second salmon dish was even far better! The salmon was so moist that it immediately melted once it touched your taste bud. The confit potato was heavenly succulent as well and it did balance the taste of the salmon as the main actor. The matchless component from this dish was the hollandaise sauce, which you might usually have with breakfast menu containing eggs. Surprisingly, this invention turned out wonderful!

Local Duck Confit (IDR 85k)

 

 

 
Finally, we arrived at the last food on the table, duck confit. Yes, it was another type of meat! LOL. Usually, I did not like duck as I found it having too much fat. Nonetheless, this one amazingly turned to be an exception. I was extremely in love with it. Though I did have to remove the fat part, I was really really impressed with the taste. The sauce, which was combined with onion, flawlessly blended sweet and savoury flavors.

Hot Chocolate (IDR 35k)

 
For beverage, I opted for hot chocolate. The taste was quite nice, but I preferred it to have thicker texture and stronger chocolate taste.Having had complete types of meat; from beef, chicken, fish, and duck, I could say that I was highly satisfied with my dining experience in Otel Lobby. All the dishes have proven that they did serve first-class taste and quality. Two thumbs up!

I had been hearing a lot about this place and yeah, finally I had the chance to visit it together with my office colleagues. Actually we had reserved the table at the lounge, but unfortunately there was an event on that day causing us had to be replaced to the living room. It could be good news when you heard that it was a complimentary from them so we would not be charged for that living room (had heard that supposedly the customers would be charged for IDR 3million for 3-hour usage of the room). Reflected by the price, yes the room was so cozy and spacious, which definitely could be a perfect place for chilling with friends. The amazing scenery you could get from the 46th floor of The Plaza was definitely a plus plus plus point here.

Additionally, the room was equipped with sound system and LCD TV for karaoke (although you would be charged for IDR 1million per hour for this and sadly I had to tell you that the song was not up-to-date).

 
Reflecting the price paid, the service was first-class. The waiters and waitresses did provide very prompt response toward all your requests. At that time, when my colleagues and I arrived at the venue, all the foods had been served as we indeed had made our orders in prior. Unfortunately, this made the dishes was not warm anymore. Great news, the waiters and waitresses even offered to pre-heat those foods for us.

Ok. Enough sayings, now we go to the main actors, FOODS! I always love dining with lots of people. Why? It is simply because we can order tons of foods and share them. Lucky me, this time I had almost 20 people to share the calories. So here were the foods we ordered.

 
Nachos with cheddar cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo and pinto beans (IDR 100k)

 
Chicken croquettes, fried potatoes with aioli sauce (IDR 75k)

 
Prawns sizzled with garlic and chili (IDR 120k)

 
Stewed beef on toasted ciabatta bread with gratin aioli (100k)

 
Fried pork ribs, potatoes with aioli, kimuchi, and chili sauce (IDR 190k)

Not too far from my expectation, yes the sizes of the foods were indeed small, which was typical lounge size. Difference was only happened with the pork ribs, whose size was super large (even for a man). For those who have big appetite, I recommend you to order more than 1 dish to satisfy your hunger.

For me, all the dishes mentioned before were quite over-priced for that tiny portion (except for the pork ribs of course). I did not find anything special with the Nachos and the toppings were actually not that generous. For the chicken croquette, I thought the chicken filling tasted quite lovely combined with the aioli sauce, but again there was nothing so distinctive about it. The prawns were actually quite nice bringing the combination of garlic and chili as you could strongly taste the mixture of savory and spicy flavors. However, as the portion was so small, you could only enjoy it for awhile then boom it’s gone! tongue

From the foods mentioned, I love stewed beef the most as it was well-seasoned. The beef was perfectly cooked and the tender texture just turned it into a great dish. Besides, the crispy ciabatta toast came as perfect complement to the beef itself. Moving on to the fried pork ribs, I firstly expected fried pork ribs coming with glazing appearance as there’s certain sauce used as the coatings. However, the dish was actually merely fried pork ribs served with several side dishes. The texture was actually great as the meat was tender. The generous portion also became a plus point for this dish. However, it still could not beat the winning stewed beef.

 
Smoked Salmon Pizza (140k)

 
Mushroom Pizza


Talking about pizza, both the smoked salmon and mushroom pizza were just so so for me since the toppings were not that abundant. The great point about the pizza was the crust, which I might say perfectly suited Indonesian’s preference as it was neither too thick, nor too thin.

As my colleagues and I had not been satisfied with the dishes we ordered in prior, we decided to order some more and our choice was STEAKS!

 
Grilled Rib Eye (sorry but I forgot the price for this dish sad )

 
Grilled Wagyu Tenderloin (IDR 450k)

When you saw the menu, the first thing coming into your mind was they were expensive. But at the time they touched your taste bud, you might think twice for not ordering them. They were perfectly cooked and the meat was just so juicy and tender! I myself did not really like medium-well steaks, however I these two dishes were just exceptions. Since we shared these two dishes, I guessed I only blinked and woof! They were all gone tongue

Another thing I admired besides the steaks were Cloud’s signature mocktails, which were uber rich! Cloud were very generous in mixing the ingredients. Taste was great and refreshing! However, a little bit bigger size would make it perfect.

 
Exotic Sunset (IDR 60k)
-Combination of lychee, lime, kiwi, and grenadine-

 
Orange Cirrus (IDR 60k)
-Combination of orange and lychee-

For those who feel curious about Cloud, I recommend you to come for the signature mocktails and the view from the lounge. If you are willing to spend more, the steaks are must-try!
