Penyetan Cok : Uh Ah, Pedas! OK Jul 30, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Food Court | Halal

I don’t have any plan on that Saturday (Finally, the first time I can be free and lazy, like, literally!) That’s why I visit Pejaten Village near my boarding house to have lunch.

I haven’t eaten Sambal for a long time – for health reason – and I really miss what it tastes like! That’s why; I go straight forward to Penyetan Cok after looking restaurants aroundPejaten. As it’s Saturday, Penyetan Cok is really crowded with a lot of people. I sit outside the restaurant, so I can get a better view and I can see the whole part of the mall. Besides, I’m alone and don’t have any companion at the moment.

Food & Beverages (not include service & tax total 10%)
Rempela Ati – IDR 9.5k

 
Yeah, I love eating internal organs. You name it, usus, jeroan, anything! I think the “Ati” taste really great, but the Rempela is a bit hard to chew. It should be tender, I guess.

Belut Goreng – IDR 20.5k

 
I think it needs a lot of improvement. It tastes good, but not crunchy. I expect it to be crunchieir. Plus, they include the head of the eel, which kinda gross for me. I think it’s better not to put the eel head.

Sambal Limau – IDR 5k

 

 
All of the main menus in here don’t include any Sambal. So you need to order the Sambal separately. If you can’t stand a hot Sambal like me, then you should order the Sambal Limau. Sambal Limau is not really hot, and the taste is really good! I bet the rest of the Sambal taste super and hot too!

Nasi Putih – IDR 5.5k

 
I think their rice is a bit sticky and too much water in it.

Es Cao – IDR 10k

 
Wow – I love this one! It taste sweet and refreshing! A perfect companion for eating Sambal.

Yes, don’t get shock, I’m eating all of these alone! This is just how I miss eating Sambal, that’s why today is my exception day to eat sambal.

Ambiance:
It’s a bit crowded, but I’m fine with it since the restaurant itself kinda small & I’m sitting outside the restaurant. I enjoy myself while eating those sambals and foods though!

Service:
The waiter is super responsive and super fast! He explains to me each menu clearly (because I’m asking), he notes my order in a blink, and I also get my order in minutes.

Stay awake for another food journey!

Ichiban Crepes : Camilan Nagih! Smile Jul 30, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Stand / Kios | Pancakes / Waffle / Crepes | Camilan

I live on a boarding house near Pejaten area, then how come I tried the Ichiban Crepes so far away from my place, which is on Kelapa Gading?

Well, there’s a reason behind it! On Saturday and Sunday, I usually go to my relative house in Kelapa Gading area. Most of the time, I’ll visit Kelapa Gading Mall with my lil sister.

Eventhough I always get pass by Ichiban Crepes, but I never tried it because I feel like it’s just an ordinary crepes, and super crowded. To be honest, I don’t want to wait! H

owever, on that day, I and my lil sister feels like the smell of the Ichiban Crepes is really seductive and make us drool – like, really! – That’s why we decided to join the queue and order some crepes.

Choco Cheese – IDR 14k

 

 
As I’m a dessert lover, I order their choco cheese crepes. I only wait about 3 minutes to get the crepes. Taste really great, and the price is super affordable too. The filling is rich, especially if you reach the bottom part! I think, if the crepes is crispier, It will taste heavenly.

Cold Crepes (Choco Chips) - IDR 12k

 
Who!! Their cold crepes is also super nice. The chocochips is a lot, and so crunchy. The price is super reasonable. I think this one is a perfect dessert in the end of the month (if you know what I mean, especially anak kos-kosan just like me, hahaha!)

Ambiance:

 
The Ichiban Crepes stall in Kelapa Gading is kinda big and super crowded. I think it’s because of the strategic location. Eventhough it’s big, don’t expect ichiban crepes stall is fancy like a restaurant. On the opposite, they sell the crepes in an open restaurant.

Service:

 
There’s no exact line or queue there. However, the waiter told us to move to in front of the cashier so she could take our order. They work really fast even though only 2 persons at the moment & it’s crowded with customer. Overall I love how friendly the waiters are. They work real fast & they all friendly. I only need to wait approx. 10 minutes to get the crepes.

I think I could say that Ichiban has become one of my favourite crepes!

Stay awake for another food journey!

Categories : Dessert | Halal

If you’re thirsty but don’t want to taste an ordinary drink in a cup, then you should try Hong Tang. They provide ice in a bowl (a Taiwanese dessert).

The location is kinda hidden in Central Park. You need to go to the Central Park Garden (Sorry, don’t know the exact name, I’m not Jakartanese hahaha!) and go to the second floor via escalator. Eventhough the place is hidden, but the crowd is always there. It’s super crowded, but thankfully I don’t need to queue that long to get a sit.

Beverages: (not include tax 10% & service 5%)

Grass Jelly 25 – IDR 48k

 

 
It consists of milk, grass jelly, green tea ice cream, q-ball, and some black bubble. It taste good, but not “WOW”. I think the ice is too much, and I feel like I’m eating a melting green tea ice cream mix with cold water. I think they should add more milk so it’ll be tastier.

Q-Ball Ice 12 – IDR 38k

 

 
My friend orders this one. It consists of the super yummy Q-Ball, along with taro paste, coconut jelly, and some black bubble. She adds another pudding on top of it, which makes it super yummy!

Toffu Pudding 54 – IDR 34k

At the first time, the order is wrong. They only serve the tofu pudding and milk, without anything else. It supposes to have corn flakes, and any other thing inside. My friend complain to the waiter, the waiter apologize, and directly replace it with a new one. However, I see that the person who makes it doesn’t believe what he said. She argues for a moment that she already give the right order. Fortunately, after waiting, my friend’s order comes out right.

Ambiance:
Because it’s super crowded, we need to sit on a small round table, but consists of 3 people. Also, there are lots of noise from other customer, plus the “stare” from the waiting list customer outside Hong Tang, which makes our time is not really enjoyable there.

Service:
It’s so crowded at that time, maybe that’s why they kinda confuse to execute all the orders. I understand that it's kinda hard to remember all orders and execute it at the same time. However, I hope I’ll see a better service without any mistake next time ;)

Stay awake for another food journey!

Hey Guys!
Are you looking for a suggestion how to spend your Friday night wisely?
Well, congratulations! Because you’ve found the right post on how to spend your Friday night ;)

Located on Jl. Kemang Raya, Fez By Aphrodite is in 1 building with Kinara Group. As it is a bar, Fez open daily starting from 2 p.m until 2 a.m everyday. Except for Saturday and Sunday, they open from 12 p.m.

When you are in the Kemang Raya street, you won’t miss the location of Fez because the building design is so unique, looks like an Indian castle with bright brown colour on it. Here, you also can find Kinara and another Fez. The first floor (the one you step in the first time) is Fez by Aphrodite. It’s a Bar – well, definitely – but it also has super delicious Food & Dessert! Let’s go to the review, shall we?

Food & Beverage (not include service 10% & tax 10%)

Grill Porkchop Swiss – IDR 99k

 
Fez needs a long time to prepare our dish. I think I wait around 15 – 20 minutes to before I can take a photo of this dish and – horray!, finally – eating it. That’s why, if you’re already hungry, I recommend to order really fast, so you can get your dish faster too.

However, the waiting is worth it. The taste of the Porkchop and the bacon is super great, I can chew it easily inside my mouth. I’m not a fan of tomato, but I do love the combination of mozzarella cheese with tomato.

Plus, I love the seasoning on the vegetables! It all blends perfectly in my mouth. Unfortunately, there are some of the elements that could be better. For example, the taste of the mash potato is really cold, and lack of seasoning. I expect it to be warmer and saltier.

Also, I really really have to spend all my energy in cutting the meat! It’s really hard to cut with knife and fork. But, it’s easy to chew. This part, I really confuse why it is like that. Strange, right? Usually if it’s hard to cut, then it’s hard to chew. But it’s not like that with this pork chop. Well, overall I’m enjoying the taste!

Mojito – IDR 80k

 
The best match while eating grill pork chop is mojito! It tastes really refreshing with the combination between mint, lime, soda, and a bit of alcohol.

Banana Pancake – IDR 42k

 
Because I already know that it takes a bit longer to wait for our order, when I was about to finish my grill porkchop, I order the dessert, which is banana pancake. Yes, eventhough it’s a bar, it also has dessert! Wonderful, right? Just about when I finish, the pancake come.

You’ll got one pancake with maple syrup, vanilla ice cream, and a cherry. I’m a fan of a dessert, and I’m definitely a fan of this super yummy banana pancake! The banana taste sweet, the pancake is really soft, and match perfectly with the ice cream. Love, love it.

Milk Shake – IDR 35k

 
Because mojito doesn’t match with the pancake, I order my second drink, chocolate milkshake. The taste of the chocolate is really familiar (well, I can guess what brand, hahaha!) and it taste superb!

Oh, Fez doesn’t need a long time to prepare for the drink, so don’t worry ;)

Service:

 
There are 2 waiters serving me at that time. One was taking order, and the other make the drink. They’re really helpful, very attentive, and super friendly.

Ambiance

 

 
I sit in the bar area that time, and it’s really comfy.

 
You can charge your phone easily there, you can enjoy the music, and you can say Hi to the other customer too! When I’m about to take picture with my sis, there’s this one foreigner name Mark (hey Mark!) and he jump to take a photo with us. A great bar, indeed!

Stay awake for another food journey!

“Sumpah, ini tempat imut banget!”
That’s how I scream when I see Nanny’s Pavilion Restaurant in Central Park, West Jakarta.

Food
Renee Mac and Cheese - IDR 55,000

 
I always love to eat mac and cheese, and this one is one of my favorite! It’s not too creamy, but you can still taste the cream and cheese. Plus, there’s a super crunchy bread stick along with the food. Not to forget the protein, a grilled chicken breasts.
However, I’m not really the fan of the chicken breasts because it tastes cold (Sorry.)

Fried Buttermilk Mushroom - IDR 29,000

 
This is made from “Jamur Kuping”, you know, the one with brown colour and big size. Shockinglly, it taste really good, crunchy, and match well with the mayonnaise. I’m in love!

Hot Tuna Spaghetti - IDR 52,000

 
Those two are my friends order. They said it’s totally good, and they never expect that Nannys’ Pavilion will be this great. Hahahaha! Told you guys!

Beverages:
Nanny’s Cocktail (Mango Flavour) - IDR 58,000

 
This drink can be shared with 3-4 persons, so it’s a recommended drink for you who go here with your friends or family. The taste is nice, refreshing, and sweet. What I like the most is that this drink has real fruits inside that you can enjoy! It consists of strawberries, melons (?) and other fruits, I’m not so sure but it tastes good anyway!

Service:
Not only the uniform looks lovely, but the waiter attitude is super lovely too! She answers all of our questions promptly without any hesitation, asking us what we like, and she even recommend some delicious menus for us. Eventhough I’m a bit “Galau” – yes, always galau before ordering something, she waits for me patiently. She also always smile and knows what we need. Really satisfied with the service provided!

Ambiance:

 

 

 
The decoration is super cute, looks like a garden with all the flowers hanging and also a big tree. Overall, the place is lovely, but a bit hot because of the transparent window. However, I love it because I can take a very nice, bright picture of the food! A recommended place to spend with family, friends, or even with your beloved ones.

Stay awake for another food journey!
