If you’re looking for a nice, super affordable place to eat dessert in Grand Indonesia, I think Petit Julien is the right choice. The location is on the lower ground, next to the supermarket and also Kinokuniya book store. This place is not big at all, and only a few seats (maybe max 20 seats?) and all arranged for 2 until 5 people per tables.

 
I’ve known this place online, and the comments about the place is great, so many people love the waffle here, since it’s also the main menu of this place.
Belgian Waffle , ChocoChip – IDR 30,000

 
The difference between the waffle is that, the one I ordered only has 1 pieces, but it’s big and crunchy. The other type, which is Brussels (if I’m not mistaken) has 2 small pieces and very tender. So it depends on you, which one do you prefer, the warm and tender or the crunchy wafer.
As a dessert lover, I must say that I really love the taste of the waffle. It’s match with the ice cream, the crumbs, and also the chocolate sauce. Super delicious and I just couldn’t stop eating it again and egain!
Chocolate Mousse – IDR 20,000

 
Here’s the better news, they’ll add 20% discounts after 7 p.m if you order this menu. I don’t know if this is still valid until now, but you might want to ask the crew there. Lumayan kan dapat diskon ? ;)
So yes, the chocolate mousse will only become 16,000 !! Super great, right? It’s really creamy, a true comfort food for me. I’d like to order this one again if I’m around Grand Indonesia.
Service

 
The crews there are really friendly and kind. They took our order nicely, and also make our order pretty fast. When I ask one of them for a spoon to eat the chocolate mousse while walking around the mall, she also directly give it to me with smile.
Ambiance

 
A great place for those who want to hang out alone or maybe 2 – 3 persons, more private, tetapi tidak menjebolkan kantong! It’s also a hidden location, and there’s not much noise here.

Do you know about Ismaya Group? I think Ismaya is one of the biggest food chain in Jakarta, and it always come with a creative design. Colete & Lola is one of another food shop from Ismaya Group. It's a super cute girly place that every girl should visit - yes girls, you'll definitely fall in love!

 
Located on Senopati area, this place is not hard to find since it has a bright pastel color, and the location is on the second floor. It always crowded with teenager and also people who order their cake – it’s super cute and a great choice for birthday surprise.
The cake price is IDR 30,000 up (you can see it on the display when you're there). So you’ll need to walk and then choose which cake you’d like to order.

 
We See Green (The Green one)
I'm not a big fan of Green Tea, but I like this cake! It's so yummy and really soft. It also has this cute model like Monster Inc character.
La Vie En Rose (The Pink one)
This cake is super smooth! it has this very unique smell, which is rose! Is it really a rose petal above the cake? I know there’s also other shops that use a rose petal on top of their cake, but I still find it really creative. Well, this cake is worth a try!
Panda
This is my most favourite cake here! The chocolate is so savoury and tasty, and it melts in your mouth. Help, I can't stop eating it!
Ambiance

 
It's really crowded when I went there, because there are so many people and the size of this cake shop is small.
The waiter is very busy in serving the customer, grabbing orders, and making coffee.
Well, maybe a bigger shop will be better, hahaha.
Service
It’s a self service since you’ll need to tell the waiter which cake you’d like and then bring it to your table. The same goes to the drink, so you need to take it by yourself once it’s made by the bartender there.
Concept

 
Love it! It's super cute, super girly, I love all the designs, so creative! Overall, the cake taste just fine, but I have to say that it won't make you crave for more, except for the Panda cake!
Definitely worth to try!

I’ve heard about Paulaner for quite a while from a friend. Not only that, lots of people also said that it’s a great place to spend Friday or even Saturday evenings. First, you need to get inside a bookstore to reach this restaurant.
Paulaner Platter - IDR 275,000

 
Even though they call it as a platter, but honestly the portion is not that big (I imagine it will be bigger and more meat on the plate). I think this is suitable to share with maximum 2 persons, not more than that, because you won’t full by just eating this one. In addition, the pork skin is kinda hard to chew.
Paulaner Beef & Chicken Grill for Two - IDR 198,000

 
The portion is kinda the same with Paulaner Platter. I think, it also has the similar taste too. I imagine I’d have a nice, grilled beef and also chicken. The taste is just fine and it’s great, but I don’t find the WOW moment or the characteristic of a nice, perfectly grilled beef & chicken meat.
Dark Beer - IDR 95,000
This one is not pricey, because the beer portion is 0.5 litre. I think this is the right drink that you must order in Paulaner. It’s time to cheers with your friends on Friday night while watching live music, right?
Ambiance

 
I went here around 6p.m , and there's a live music here! (I didn't know what time it's started) You can request a song through the waiter, and they will sing it for you if they know the song!The restaurant is really crowded, but the serving is really nice, the waiter is willing to take us a picture
Concept
I know that it's a Germany kind of restaurant, but I feel like I'm in Mexico or something (Well, forget about the cowboy hat and stuffs)
What I mean is the decoration and the lighting that they set around us.
Also the plating, the beer glass. Love the concept, totally i don't feel I was in Grand Indonesia, hahaha!
Overall, I believe we pay more for the place to "nongkrong" and also the live music.

For those who hang out with friends, I think the perfect choices would be the outdoor or open space restaurant. There are a lot of choices here, and because I am a “boarding house people” (read: anak kos-kosan) then my choice goes to Kafe Betawi, in the 1st floor of Kemang Village, outdoor / open space area.
Offering more affordable prices rather than the other restaurants, I could enjoy a great view outside or inside the restaurant, together with my friend. I choose inside because I love their wall wallpaper, it’s so vintage and antique! Besides, my friend is kinda feeling not really well, and the wind is a bit strong that day.
Soto Mie – IDR 42,000

 
My friend order a Soto Mie, because she got a flu and she think it’s better to order a Soto. Yeah, I totally agree with her. A warm bowl of Soto Mie, with fresh tomato and beef slices would be really great! The taste of Soto Mie is perfect, and the beef is also a lot, too! What a perfect combination!
Mie Tek Tek – IDR 40,000

 
Mie Tek Tek in Jakarta is a bit different than in Surabaya. In Jakarta, the soup for Mie Tek Tek is creamier. I could say it’s more to a gravy rather than a soup. However, I really love the taste, it makes me feel home, and I never go home for this past 3 months T.T. I can taste the tender chicken underneath the noodle. The portion is just balance between the meat and the noodle. Thumbs up! I also ask for additional “cabe rawit potong” and the waiter respond super nicely! Thanks!
Service
It’s super great and the waiter is very friendly. They also listen to our order carefully and willing to take pictures for us. And yes, thumbs up for that additional “Cabe rawit potong!”
Ambiance

 

 
It’s located on the second floor of Kemang Village, and it also has an open door area for those who like to smoke. At that time, we choose to sit inside since it’s more comfortable and there’s not much wind inside. It also has a nice Indonesian decoration, which is very nice and very traditional.

Hotel Bumi Surabaya offers an affordable price for each person.

 
It's only IDR 168,000 (disc 30& off) and you can enjoy eating in 3 Restaurants! (Kizahashi, Arumanis, and The Indonesian food in front)

 
During my 3 times visit, I ever sit inside Arumanis, in Kizahashi, and then in the back side of Arumanis. Overall, I'd suggest you to sit in Kizahashi, because the area is more comfy and elegant.
I never try to sit outdoor, because the wind is too strong and it's a bit hot.
If you take dinner, maybe outdoor is better so it will be more romantic.
For your information, the two restaurant (Arumanis and Kizahashi) are connected. So if you want to go inside out, no need to go outside, and then walk a bit further. You just need to go into this hallway, and then found the Kizahashi sign outside.
Let's begin the review!
I will start with Kizahashi

 
Representing the name, Kizahashi means a Japanese restaurant.
There are 3 main large table where you can found a grill table, and soup table
In the grill, there are meat, 2 kinds of chicken, vegetables, and fried rice.

Overall, I think the chicken taste better than the meat. The meat is kinda cold and not warm enough even though the chef grill it in front of you.
Also, be prepared to queue, especially at weekend, since this grill spot is become a favourite spot of the customers.
In soup, there are cawan mushi, miso soup, noodle with soup, red meat, boiling vegetables, and fried tempura.

I love this table side very much! Especially, because the red meat is just too yum!
The noodle soup is also really delicious. The Tempura is really crunchy and a must grab. Be prepared to queue again and fight for your Tempura if it's on weekend. Hahahaha. Unless, you go a bit earlier than the others so that you can grab it in peace and get a bunch Tempura for your tummy.
I prefer the soup table rather than the grill one.
Moving on to Arumanis.
There are Chinese food, Indonesian food, drink selections, and fruits.

 
Honestly, I don't really like the Chinese food here.
For the Indonesian food, I never tried one because what they offer here is not my favourite Indonesian food.
They have a very wide selection of Indonesian traditional food (Ceker, Pepes, Babat, others) and the customers can order Rujak and Gado-Gado also here.

For the drink selections, I've tried all of them, and I'd suggest you to take the Strawberry Tea. Believe me, it taste really good and also sweet!
Moving on to the last and biggest part, which is the outdoor.

 

 
The outdoor one also offers a wide selection of Indonesian food and also blend with omelette, and western dessert such as pudding.
I'll start from the left side (in front of Arumanis)
On the stall 1, you can found Omelette. You choose the fillings of the omelette. There are cheese, mushroom, onion, vegetables, and others.
Same like the others, if there are too many people queue, you can order first, leave it, and take it later on. It's also for the customers own convenience.
Next to it, there is a waffle and ice cream stall. Here, you can choose three options of ice cream, vanilla cookies, chocolate, and chocolate chilli.
I most favorite one is the vanilla cookies, but you must grab it fast because it also gone really fast!
I don't recommend the chocolate chilli because the taste is just too weird.
After that, you can also choose toppings with peanut, chocolate wrinkles, and cheese. Also some syrup, maple, strawberry, chocolate.
My suggestion, give it cheese and peanut, taste awesome!
The third one provide Sate Ayam, Sate Kambing and also some selections of Tempe Rice, and other kind of Rice.
I love the Sate Ayam! 1 portion only consist of 5 Satay, so if you want more just say the number directly to the chef, for example 15 satay, please.
Fourth one is the fried Indonesian food. There are Tahu Isi, Tempe Goreng, Spring Rolls, and others. It's not that interesting and also not that tempting. I only tried the Spring rolls and taste fine, but not great.
The fifth one is Indonesian traditional snack.

 
You can pick whatever snack you want. My suggestion : try the Terang Bulan with Pandan and cheese or the regular one, also the little snacks which I don't even no the name (Shame on me, yes, because I'm an Indonesian people, hahaha!)
Taste great with a wide range of selections!
The sixth one is the pudding and also ice selections.

 
There are varieties of pudding, but I still can't find the one that I truly love.
For the ice, try the pudding ice (you will get a matcha ice cream too) and also the es campur.
If you take dinner, then you can also taste the Wedang Ronde and Jahe (ginger base dessert soup)
Moving on to the upper part near the outdoor seats.
Here, they offer selections of steam Indonesian food such as Ketela, Pisang (Banana), Rice, and others.
Also, you can taste Soto Ayam, Bakso, and ordered Indonesian fried noodle or fried rice.
The Soto Ayam, Bakso (pick the Bakso Kasar) and fried noodle is highly recommended!
For those who love spicy, try the spicy fried noodle. It's yum!
Service
All of the crews and chefs are super friendly and attentive. They also could remember our order. Yes, we could order first to them and then leave it, come back to it again later on when we already finish eating the other dish.
Ambiance

 
A really great restaurant with 3 different kind of ambiance. Overall, I'm truly satisfied eating here! Especially since I eat three times in a week, hahahaha!
A great choice if you go with family, colleagues, and friends.
