Raa Cha : Do You Grill or Stew? OK Jul 30, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thailand | Restaurant | Steak & Grills | Shabu Shabu | Halal | Kumpul Keluarga

It's a do it yourself stew and grill. You’ll get a grill & also a pot to stew your food ;)
Step by step :
1. Get your table number
2. Tell the waiter what soup do you want (chicken or Tom Yam)
3. Pick all the meat, fish, vegetables, and so on that you like
4. Take and fill the drink that you want (no-refill, so yes, fill it all up guys!)
5. Order rice (if you want)
6. The cashier will total all your dish + you have to pay
7. There you go! Have a seat and enjoy your do it yourself stew and grill!
Can't remember the steps? Don't worry, Raa Cha has like a brochure about this one. Or else, you can ask the waiter to guide you
So yes, let's review!
I went here at 9p.m. I know right, too late to have a dinner. Hahahaha but who can resist food? ;)
When I got here, almost all the dish are sold out. Fortunately, I still can grab some of the beef (well, can't live without it, haha)
Food & Price
I don't remember the dish name and also the price one by one
You know, I only grab grab grab grab and grab, and yes. The cashier is already in front of me and total all my already grabbed dish.
Spent approx IDR 350,000 for 5 persons (bunch dishes,3 drinks and 2 rice)
Quite affordable if I may say.
The Grill

 
The beef is tasty and has a nice texture.
Actually I really want to try the spicy and also the salty one, but all sold out sad(
I also love the chicken meat even though when I grill it, the colour aren't really nice.
The Soup

 
Love the enoki mushroom - it's delicious!
The all kind of fish balls, Siomay, and Tofu that I took taste good.
Suggestion :
don't pick the angel hair (Read : bihun) because it's so hard to grab and cut - seriously -
don't forget to grab your sauce near the cashier desk!
Concept
It's a Thai food right? But well, I don't feel like it's a Thai food.
They're trying to show the Thai concept only by using unique cooking stuffs.
Ambiance
Well, I feel not really comfortable eating here.
Maybe because it's approaching the closing time, the waiter is busy cleaning up all the mess around us.
They start to grab all the "Stove" to cook, the grill plate, and the pot around us, cleaning the table
Even they already clean all the pantry where they put the dishes before.
They also said to us that it's the last order so we can't add anymore dishes again after that.
(This last paragraph read : pengusiran secara halus?)
I don't get offended though, because the waiter still serving us nicely.
They also really responsive, when the fire for my grill is out, they quickly turn the fire back on again.

Stay awake for another food journey!

UNION : A must try Red Velvet Smile Jul 30, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Multinasional | Lounge/Bar | Kencan / Berpasangan | Hang Out

I think you need to make a reservation before heading to UNION eatery, because the place is always full book and lots of people eat there. Besides, you only give about 2 hours to dine in there, because there are too many people. Yes, don’t forget to call unless you show early in the morning , okay?
Food & Beverages
Red Velvet - IDR 65,000

 
This cake is really famous throughout Jakarta, and even Surabaya.
The cheese cream, the icing sugar, and the texture of the cake blend smoothly.
Even so, I think the taste is not really that special.
Carrot Cake - IDR 65,000

 
My favorite cake here! Hahahaha.
I madly inlove with the taste of the cinnamon.
The cake is not that sweet, blend together with the cheese cream, hmm-yummy!
I can't stop eating this one, it's a must try in UNION.
Nastar Crumble - IDR 65,000

 
If you like a light cake, then you definitely should try this one.
The cream is so soft and the cake melts in your mouth.
My mom and my auntie really love this cake.
Lemon Juice - IDR 25,000
Well, the lemon juice that I made taste better than this.
For you who really loves sour drink, maybe you'll love this one.
I think I eat too much sweet before I drink this, that's why the taste didn't really match.
Life is Good - IDR 55,000
I have no idea what it taste like. Too weird for me.
Strawberry Fresh Juice - IDR 30,000
Taste great! I love the fact that the strawberry taste really well.
The proportion of ice, water, and strawberry match perfectly.
So far, this is the most normal drink I ever taste in UNION, hahaha.
Additional info: All UNION's cake is huge! If you don't really like eat sweet, I suggest you share the cake with someone.
Ambiance
If you go here early on the morning, you'll feel at peace.
Why? There are not so many people, so you can enjoy your time really well.
If it's above 1 p.m, it will be really crowded and makes me feel a bit dizzy and uncomfortable.
Concept
You'll feel like you're in france or somewhere outside Asia.
It's a really western restaurant with all the decorations, tables, chairs, waiter's uniforms, and choices of foods, cakes, and beverages.
There's one waiter on each spot so all the customer should get a proper service.

Stay awake for another food journey!

I heard that they're really famous for its Xiao Long Bao, but I didn't eat one because I'm not really a fan of true xiao long bao (mix flavours, usually there are ginger, vegetables, pork > mostly, etc)
Food
Beef Sze-Chuan La-Mian - IDR 90,000

 
Caution: It's spicy!
For spicy food lovers, you definitely love this one!
For me, I don't really like it because the chilli flavour is just true strong for me
(I can't eat a very spicy food)
The beef is really tender and the La Mian is actually really good.
My mom love it anyway.
Ma Po ToFu - IDR 60,000

 
The tofu is really soft - it breaks when the chopsticks hit it on the side.
The sauce is also great, but it contains ginger
and yess, I don't eat ginger so I didn't really like it.
Well, my mom and dad love it very much
I think it's my mom and dad eating time, isn't it? Because all the food is their fav, not mine. hahahaha!
Kungpao Prawn - IDR 80,000

 
Wow! I cannot stop eating this one.
The combination between the sauce and the prawns (yes, the size is big, don't worry) is really delicious!
Take a look carefully at the dish, because there are so many almond nuts "Kacang Mente" hidden there!
You won't miss it because the taste is also good!
This is my favourite menu ini here ;)
BakPao
Hedgedog Bun - IDR 35,000

 
This one is really really cute until you won't eat this!
Inside this bun is a mix between chocolate and read bean - truly melts and warm.
I love the taste and also the filling, it's really rich.
Becareful because the filling is really full so it will spill around easily.
Ambiance
It's really crowded! Especially when it's lunch or dinner time.
So make sure to get your spot!
Service
The service is really great. The waiter is so helpful by helping us choose the menu and he explain the menu to us clearly and patiently.

 
Anyway, check out their chopstick wrapper, have you eat your xiao long bao in a right way? ;)

Stay awake for another food journey!

I’ve heard about Monolog quite a lot, and the place is like separated - but not really - from Pacific Place. Monolog is always crowded with customers.
Some of them were doing their work, some of them were having a business meeting, and also there were some people who just hanging out with their friends.
I came by around 1 O'clock in the afternoon to have lunch and some chit-chatting time with my friends. No need to wait anything anymore, and let’s start with the review!
Food
Monolog Beef Curry - IDR 90,000

 
Since I was so hungry, I prefer to have rice instead of light meal. The presentation is so-so, but the taste is very sensational. I love the tenderness of the meat. Oh my, I just can't stop eating it!

Here are other food that ordered by my friends;)

 

 

 
P.S:
Even though the waiter said the portion is not that big, well, according to me, all of their menu are actually have a big portion. Hahaha. I think the price is really match with the portion and also taste. No need to worry!
Beverages
Hazelnut White Mocha Iced Coffee - 50,000

 
Since they're saying that their coffee is the best, then I tried their Hazelnut Mocha Iced Coffee. I think they're right. Their coffee taste really great!

 

 
Guess what? The price already include tax, so you don't have to pay additional tax anymore!! HORRAY!!!!!
Btw, I do the review on my f&b only. But all of my friends are very happy with the taste, and so am I. I think they are not only having the best coffee, but also the best breakfast, lunch, and dessert in town. ;)
Ambiance
Since it's located nearly outside Plaza Senayan, I really love the ambiance. You feel like sitting inside a cafe near the street and happily spend your time there with your friends. I feel like in Paris or some places on the West Country, since it’s like an open restaurant, hahaha!
Service
Actually we want to sit inside, but the waiter said that if you're 9 people, then you couldn't sit inside. You must sit outside.
Well, I don't really mind with that, so it's not a big deal. The waiter is helpful anyway.

Stay awake for another food journey!

THE INTRODUCTION
The name of Halo Niko! is implying to the Chef / the owner of Halo Niko!, which is Niko. It is a Greek combined with Javanese restaurants that is owned by a couple. The chef, Niko, is originally come from Greece and his wife, Mbak Kika is from Java, Indonesia. The one who design the super cute, cozy, plus homey interior of Halo Niko! is Mbak Kika. There are a lot of favorite spots that I super love here.

 

 
Besides Halo Niko! they actually have another place just right next to it, which is Kembang Kencur plus a clothing store. The place in Kembang Kencur is bigger than Halo Niko! So if there’s customer who wants to held some events, they can use Kembang Kencur rather than Halo Niko!

 
If you take a look carefully, Halo Niko! use the “Teko” ornament, hanging on the wall as a lamp. Besides the function which is a water storage, “Teko” in Javanese languange means “Come” so they believe that more people will come to the restaurant.
THE MAIN COURSE
1. Souvlaki Chicken

 
Caution: BIG PORTION!!
Believe me, it’s totally huge! It’s like a Kebab, but very much larger and it uses prata bread to wrap the fillings and the prata is not fried.
The fillings itself consist of Chicken (slices, just like Kebab Meat), vegetables (Tomatoes,etc), mayonnaise. The taste is super delicious! Even though I’m not a veggie, but I eat all the vegetables inside it! Just imagine, the taste must be so incredible, LOL.
2. Greek Salad

 

 
Unfortunately, I don’t try this one because I’m not a fan of salad and vegetables. Yeah, I’m rarely eat vegetables *the blame is on me, I know*
3. Mama Moussaka

 
I think this dish is THE WINNER! It’s similar to a lasagna, but it’s much more delicious than lasagna, believe me. With the cheese covering the super tender beef and other stuffs inside, it’s really mouth watering. You can eat it with the sweet casava. Again, even though I’m not a veggie, I eat the eggplant inside the moussaka! Yes, it is my first time ever to eat an eggplant, can you believe that? I’m also so proud of myself right now, hahaha!
THE DRINK
Vanilla Lime
This drink taste like a melted pudding. Even there’s lime in it, you can barely taste it, which is really nice for me! Totally a refreshing one.
What I really love here is that the food doesn’t use MSG at all. It’s all home made, so be patient while waiting for the food, okay? Just relax and enjoy your time here like you’re home!

 
P.S : I really love the slogan, Halo Niko! Banyak Makan, Banyak Teman ! smile)

Stay awake for another food journey!
