Read more review on our blog : elsasisters.wordpress.com
We visited Toscana in Kemang because our friend recommended it to us. So last Eid Mubarak holiday, we went there. Toscana is under the same management of other restaurant in Bali called Ultimo Italian Restaurant and Rumours Restaurant.Toscana served authentic Italian food in traditional way. The place was quite hidden but don't worry, just use Google Maps or Waze to find this restaurant. Toscana's exterior was just like a normal house with red roof and only have one floor. But once you stepped into it, you'll feel the Italian restaurant feeling (The musics played here make a big different LOL)

 

 
The restaurant itself was quite big and could handle up until around 90 person, I guess? The concept of the restaurant seems like a semi fine dining Italian restaurant. All the tables were set finely and all the waiter/waitress dressed professionally. What's interesting about Toscana is you'll get complimentary breads and mineral water and they are refill-able (Is that even a word?). Oh and also they will give you garlic-flavored butter for spreading. It's delicious!

 

 

 
Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino, 33k
Spaghetti pasta cooked in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and chilies
We really love their aglio olio. The taste wasn't too garlicky and not too oily. And they had the perfect level of spiciness. For the spaghetti pasta, it was cooked al dente. Overall this dish is one of our favorite.

 
Fettucine con Funghi e Tartufo, 65k
Fettucine pasta with Indonesian truffle "seasonally" cooked in white wine and cream sauce
Fettucine con Funghi e Tartufo is Toscana new menu. At first, LilSis was interested to buy this because it is written that it is cooked in white wine. And they also use Indonesian truffle. I was hopping that the wine flavor would be quite strong, but it turned out quite disappointing. I couldn't neither taste nor smell the white wine. Although the pasta once again was cooked perfectly al dente, this dish was too bland for us. No salty nor rich taste.

 
Gnocchi di Patate alla Valtellina, 75k
Classic potato dumpling with Indonesian truffle "seasonally" and mix mushroom, imported fontina mountain cheese, tomato, and cream
How should I put it into words? We thought that the gnocchi was mushy but not too mushy and didn't really taste like potato. However, we didn't really like it. It's somehow weird for our palate. The sauce was a little bit too sour for us too.

 
(Half Pizza) Salami e Olive, 40.5k
Tomato, mozzarella, salami beef, salami pepperoni, black olive
We ordered half pizza (or counted as small size pizza) because we were worried that we would be too full. Their half pizza is divided into 5 pieces. They gave quite generous amount of mozzarella which we love! Taste wise, it was quite delicious and quite full filling.

 
Vongole Inguazzetto, 50k
Premium fresh clams cooked in white wine and cherry tomato. Served with garlic bread
The best dish of the day! No pasta here but only clams. We really love this dish as it has strong wine flavor and the clams were fresh and delicious. No fishy smell at all. Very recommended!

 
Linguine ala Trapanese, 40k
Linguine pasta with Tuna, Eggplant & cappers, cooked With white wine & cherry tomato
Linguine in fact is similar with fettuccine and trenette but it's more eliptical. The pasta was cooked perfectly. For the sauce taste, it was quite sour (from the tomato) and I don't remember tasting nor smelling the wine flavor. The tuna was cooked nicely. Maybe if you like tomato you would like this dish.

 
We really adore Toscana for having the best-cooked pasta we've ever tasted. All their pasta were cooked perfectly al-dente. A little note about their bread, BigSis and LilSis are their grey-colored bread (We thought it was made using wine as we could smell the wine flavor there). All in all, our visit was quite nice. Let's eat, foodies!

The service was great too. The waiter/waitress were helpful.

Experience Indonesian Delicacy OK Jul 10, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Betawi | Restaurant | Halal | Kumpul Keluarga

 
Before LilSis joined OpenRice gathering, she had her lunch at Kafe Betawi, Senayan City. It was her first time eating there and she said that it was just okay. That time, Kafe Betawi was super crowded so she had to wait for couple of minutes before getting seated. The place was small but they try to add as many tables and chairs as they could so it turned out to be very packed. The service wasn't that helpful too.
As soon as she saw the menu, she decided to order some of this :

 
Nasi Rawon, 49k
The rawon's broth was delicious. You could tell that they use real herbs when making this rawon. It's not too oily and the beef was very tender. 

 
Soto Betawi, 47k
Their soto wasn't that good. Well, the meat was tender but the broth was too milky. And it's oily too. Plus it was too sweet for our palate. However, if you like sweet you might want to try it.

 
Fried Babat, 35k
Quite expensive for the portion that wasn't that big. Well, it was fried nicely hence it was slightly crunchy on the outside. I could say that they seasoned it nicely resulting in a balanced saltiness.

 
Nasi Goreng Kambing, 45k
Their fried rice wasn't that tasty. The goat meat wasn't tender and I could barely found the meat. The egg was the only thing that was normal. I mean it taste just like normal fried egg.

Supplementary Information:
The service wasn't that helpful and the price was quite expensive for the portion. Maybe it was because at that time the place was crowded

Get Riche with Sour Sally Smile Jul 10, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Es Krim/Yogurt | Halal | Hang Out

 
LilSis has been dreaming to try Sour Sally new product since the first time they launched it but had never got the chance. So after she finished her National Exam, she quickly arranged to visit Sour Sally new-concept booth at Central Park Mall.

 

 

 
Located on LG floor, we can find All New Sour Sally booth in front of . Their booth was medium sized and they provide us some chairs and tables. At that time, the tables were all taken by group of people, so LilSis and her friends just ate their fro-yo standing.

 
Black Sakura Riché, 50k
Black Sakura Frozen Yoghurt with 3 fruits, 1 crunch and 1 type of sauce of your choice.
LilSis chose Kiwi, Lychee, and Strawberry as her fruits, and Granola as her crunch. For the sauce, she chose Matcha Latte Sauce. The fro-yo black color comes from Active Black Charcoal powder-which is a perfect body detox and is high in antioxidants- and sakura blossom infusion.

 
The black sakura fro-yo taste great! It doesn’t have that weird taste. However, when you eat it for the first time, you might taste a little coarse taste of the powder. But after a while, that taste disappear. As soon as the fro-yo melt, it taste just like normal Sour Sally frozen yoghurt. LilSis fave must be their granola. It has that nutty flavor and raisins. Me likey!

 
Supplementary Information:
Overall, LilSis had a nice time there. If someone said that there are no healthy things that are delicious, All New Sour Sally prove them wrong. #ItsFitNotFat! You can enjoy healthy moment with their Black Sakura or White Skim. So what are you waiting for? Let’s eat, foodies!

Big Sis had her 19th birthday dinner here, at Imperial Lamian. At first we were going to eat at Nanny's Pavillon but it was full. So we moved on to Imperial Lamian. Well, we never regret our choice as it was the best choice ever. We were very impresed by their foods.

 

 
Located in Flavor Bliss, Alam Sutera, Imperial Lamian has a big eye catching signage. The interior is like a park, with some yellow park lamps. They also divide their kitchen (I think?) into some section such as : bakery, desserts, and many more. We ordered some thing that remind us about our visit to Singapore back then. We were very happy and couldn't ask for more smile
The best!

The best!

 
Two Taste Kailan, 20k
The best and our favorite. The kailan was served in two different ways. The soft way and the crunchy way. We really love the crunchy one and also the soft one. It was seasoned really well and it just gave us a new experience of eating Kailan. Good job!

 
Pork With Salted Veggies, 42k
I really love how they cooked the pork. The pork was tender and the sauce compliment this dish nicely. If you hate eating hard pork, then you need to try this as it was mind blowing tender!

 
Mushroom Tofu, 35k
Well, LilSis barely love mushroom tofu as te tofu was always taste.. yuck! But... This one is an exception! The tofus were delicious and the thick gravy was delicious too. It has a perfect balance between sweetness and saltiness.

 
Super Xiao Long Bao, 20k
I thought that this dish was cute. It was colorful and served in 4 different flavor. Unlucky me, I got the spicy one (yellow). It was spicy minced pork. Actually I want to try the other flavor, but it was vanished soon after I finished mine. Oh also, the xiao long bao was quite dry.

 
Lamian with fried chicken, 40k
One of the best dish we had that day. The chicken was fried perfectly resulting in crunchy outer and tender inside. We also love their lamian as it was quite big in portion and not too soft. Delicious!

Supplementary Information:
You could visit this place with your family as they serve many sharing-portion foods.

The second Meetup | Itadakimasu OK Jul 10, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Jepang | Restaurant | Halal

 

 
And here comes another new cafe at PIK. Itadakimasu's foods had been coloring our Instagram's feed lately. Especially their Starving Panda. So, we and some #SnapFoodie 's members gave this hip-cafe a try last Saturday.

 

 
Different from other cafes which are located around Bukit Golf Mediterania, Itadakimasu is located at Elang Laut. They're in-line with and before Grand Family Hospital. You can spot this cute looking cafe by searching for its cute mascot, Ted, a cute brown bear.
When we walked inside, we were quite amused by their cute bear drawings on the wall. You can spot many cute bear drawings on the wall, especially on their second floor. We choose to seat on the second floor as it has a long table and there weren't many people there.

 
Starving Panda, 48k

When we talk about Itadakimasu, the first thing that popped into our head was their cute Starving Panda. Yes! It's that cute and instagenic panda.
Starving Panda is basically seasoned rice that's shaped into panda form with their 'eyes and mouth' which actually made from seaweed. The 'pandas' were served with chicken katsu and curry sauce. Other than the good look, this dish is actually pretty good. The curry was nice with a lil bit spiciness. The katsu was nicely fried resulting a crispy skin and tender inside. Delicious~

 

 

 
Sweet Drugs Churros, 32k
Another instagenic food! Itadakimasu offer you sweet or savory churros. That day, we chose to order the sweet one ;) The churros is served with three different syringe/injection filled with sweet cheese, chocolate, and matcha/green tea sauce. Before you eat their churros, make sure to inject the filling first ;) The churros was nice and delicious. It's not overly sweet and were fluffy.

 

 
Mizu Mochi, 32k

Mizu Mochi consist three bouncy water-mochi, grind nuts, taro ice-cream, fruit loops, and maple syrup. At first, we were quite confused on how to eat this dish. So, we decided to mix everything together.

 
The ice-cream itself was very milky and had a bold taro taste. The water-mochi were great, but we're not really sure if it's mochi as it taste more like jelly. However, we thought that the grind nuts didn't blend well with the mochi and ice cream.
Itadakimasu is another addition to many cafes in Pantai Indah Kapuk area. The foods were pretty delicious. Let's eat, Foodies!

 
Supplementary Information:
However, we would like to give a little input on their service. The staffs weren't that helpful and very slow on doing anything, from taking order until during payment. And they also got our order wrong. It would be really nice if their service improve.
