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.

Located inside Century Hotel, Dapour is one of restaurant hotel buffets that serves a delicious, yummy, Indonesian food that will not disappoint your taste. Not so long ago, I had a chance to try the Dapour restaurant with other foodies friends.

 

 
Per pax - start from IDR 218,000 (Buffet, All you can eat)

 
Dapour restaurant mainly served Indonesian Dessert. Food like Soto Mie, Sop Iga, Sate Ayam, even Gorengan like Tempe Mendoan and others could be find here. Yes, if you love Indonesian food, then this place will be like a paradise for you.
Even Dapour staffs there said that a lot of Regional Minister all over Indonesia wants to stay in Century Hotel just because of they love the food served in Dapour!
In this Ramadhan month, Dapour also serve a lot of traditional snacks and dessert such as Bubur Madura, Klepon, and other yummy Indonesian dessert.

 
My favorite menu here in Dapour is the Sop Iga! Trust me, the ribs are super duper tender. If you love to eat chilli, then you should request bunch of chilli to pour inside the soup.
My second favorite menu after Sop Iga is the Nasi Padang, especially the Rendang. It’s really well cook, super tender, and the gravy… nendang abis deh!!

 
My third one is the dessert. They offer lots of small Indonesian cakes like Martabak Manis, Pohong, - even there’s dodol - and I really love all of it.
Well, basically all of their menus are my favorite. Of course, because it’s Indonesian food! *Proud of Indonesia*

 
Ambiance
It’s so elegant and lavish inside Dapour. I really love to enjoy my food with this kind of ambiance. It makes me enjoy the food even more. If you’re a smoker, then you could eat your meal peacefully in the bar just next to Dapour restaurant. The lighting is awesome, and they also offers range of mocktails, cocktails, and other kinds of beverages. Just tell the barista what do you want ;)
The unique thing about Dapour, they’ll rotate the Indonesian menus so the customer wouldn’t get bored. For example, this week theme is Makassar Food. Then, the week after the theme might be about Betawi Food, and so on, and so on. I just wish I could try their Makassar Food, especially my favorite dessert, Es Palu Butung!

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!

Hello there! I got a chance to visit Lobo at The Ritz Carlton Mega Kuningan, Jakarta, to have a lunch together with some foodies. As I walk in, I was mesmerized by the interior of Ritz Carlton, particularly Lobo restaurant. It's super elegant, fancy, and contemporary.

 

 
As I approach the dining table, where some foodies have arrived before me, one waiter smoothly direct me to my chair. He slide the chair for me and as I sat down, he opened up the table napkin professionally. For the first impression, it was a very satisfying service.

Fresh Bread with Butter Selections - Complimentary

 

 

 
One of the waiter brought us a table full of fresh bread selections. They look so yummy and just came out from the oven! I tried some breads, and also with the butter selections. The butter flavors are ranging from original butter until onion butter-mix. A good start to fill your time and tummy, while waiting for the Appetizers.

APPETIZERs

Amouse Bouche (Three Small Bites)

 
Eventhough the size is small, but the flavor is rich! Super love the soup broth, it's so tasty and heart-warming. Feels like I'm home and my grandmother is cooking the soup for me. A great start for our lunch, indeed.

King Prawn Carpaccio - IDR 175,000

 
Who knows that this is actually a prawn? Made from Fresh Prawn, Mixed Leafs, Dried Pineapple, Keffir Lime Oil, Lime Cilantro Dressing, and Peanut, this dish is super refreshing & watery, definitely could taste the prawn once you bite on the food. The presentation is unique, the salad is also fresh, and that dried pineapple is to die for.

Creamy Soup of Wild Mushroom - IDR 150,000

 
The Chef who served us today originally came from France. He said, in France, whenever and wherever you eat, you must start with a soup. That's why, he personally cooked for us this smooth, tasty, and flavorful mushroom soup. Consist of Roasted Mushroom, Cappucino Foam, and Basil Oil, it's best served when warm. Honestly, this soup is going to my number 1 list as the most delicious & favorite soup.

Ah, before I move on to the next, mouth watering dish, I want to tell you that the uniqueness of Lobo Restaurant at Ritz Carlton Mega Kuningan Jakarta - and this one reason make me fell in love with Lobo Restaurant - is their service & presentation. They don't serve us the food like in a usual restaurant. They serve the food, and then do some "Attraction" in front of us, for example adding the spices to our food, or even pouring the soup to our bowl, grated the cheese for our tortellini, and so on. They're showing that their food is fresh and their service is number one. Wow - super exciting and makes you feel deeply valued, right?

MAINCOURSEs

Foei Gras Tortellini - IDR 225,000

 
Made from Home-made Pasta, Foei Gras Sauce, Orange, and Grated Cheese (optional), Foei Gras is one of my favorite dish ever, but this one is definitely a total bomb! You gotta eat it one whole at a time, and surprisingly it will pop out in your mouth! Yes, you'll taste the sensation of the sauce blends together with the duck flavour - all around your mouth. I could say that the sensation is priceless.

Option I : Crispy Half Suckling Pig - IDR 875,000

 

 

 
Calling all the pork lovers!! If you are one of the pork squad, then you definitely need to try Lobo Crispy Half Sucking Pig with Apple Puree, Pineapple Lemongrass Puree, and Suckling Pig Gravy. The skin is so crispy, oily and tasty and that pig meat... so tender and juicy! A well-match with the gravy. However, I honestly said I don't like both puree's. According to my taste, savoury dish could not blend well with a sweet taste.

Option II : Grilled Fish (Seasonal)

 
Relax, for those who couldn't eat or doesn't like eating pork, you could also have the Grilled Fish as your main course. The fish availability is according to the season. It's perfectly grilled and the fish meat is super tender. Melts in your mouth!

DESSERTs

Mango Sorbet

 
A while after we finish our main course and having an interesting talk, the waiter came again to serve the dessert. As we are waiting for some "dessert performance" from the kitchen crew, Lobo restaurant serve a refreshing mango sorbet. To re-fresh our appetite.

Infused Ice Cream - in Art Platter - IDR 235,000

The kitchen crew brought a large table with lots of kitchen tools. The marketer from Ritz Carlton told us that the dessert we're going to enjoy is an Infused Ice Cream with Art Platter. As starter, there's a how to make infused ice cream demo (super fun!).

 
While one kitchen crew made / infused the ice cream, the other one start to make the art on the plate. He put varieties of sauce, some chocolate powder, lemon ice cream, and fruits.

Finally, the infused ice cream is on the plate, and we could smash the ice cream ball so it could break to pieces, making the art platter complete.

 
Taste refreshing, and the kitchen crew live performance or the process in making the infused ice cream art platter is super fun! A really great dessert choice to close our lunch session.

Are you guys looking for an affordable restaurant around Kelapa Gading area? No, no... the right question is that, is there any affordable place near Kepala Gading? Well, there is, guys! Nothing to worry about.
If you’re walking around at North Jakarta or Kelapa Gading, you can try to eat while hanging out with your friends at QQ Kopitiam. Located at Gading Walk, this restaurants has 2 floors. Their interior is super cool, and really a nice place to hang out or have gossips with your best friends! Not only that, their food is super affordable.
Nasi Goreng Telur - IDR 12,000

 
Where in the earth you could find Nasi Goreng with just IDR 12,000 inside a mall and at a fancy restaurant? Usually, if you want fried rice at price 12,000, you need to go to the “Nasi Goreng Duk Duk” or the ones that sell it using Gerobak. But yes, you can find it in QQ Kopitiam!
Not only that, it taste super good! Geez, I want to eat this one –again- right now, hahaha. Even though the price is only 12,000, the portion is big enough – for me – and makes me full until evening!
Horfun Daging Kepiting - IDR 38,000

 
Do you want something fancier than nasi goreng? Or do you just receive your salary but don’t want to waste it that fast ? ;) Than you should try their “Kwetiau Siram”. Full of seafood and two big shrimps on top, this one is definitely one of my favourite! Worth every penny spent.
Teh Tarik Peng - IDR 18,000

 
Ice Tea Tarik is one of my best friend at the hot weather. The Tea Tarik is not too sweet and just perfect for my taste.
I personally think that with the price offered by QQ Kopitiam, you already get a really yummy and delicious food & beverages, plus a very nice ambiance. The place is spacious and you could get your own privacy there.
Ambiance:

 

 
Since it’s located outside the mall, you could enjoy the fresh air and the sun light here. Don’t worry, they have air conditioner so the weather is not that hot.
Service:
It’s pretty fast, and even though I’m taking photos here and there, the waiters are not looking at me and they keep busy doing their job. Hahahaha!

Stay awake for another food journey!
