This time, I'd like to share the pleasure from one the recently established place in Kemang, Ginger Li Asian Bistro and Wine. It's not supposed to be an ordinary one. Asian and wine? Sounds bizarre? Actually, Ginger Li comes up with a combination of scrumptious asian cuisine and fine wine.

Anyway, who's Ginger Li? It refers to the name of a chinese-asian woman who loves traveling around Asia. She loves trying various delights and also mix and combine many ingredients to make such luscious delights.

Located in the Kemang Building, Ginger Li got a luxurious looks from the outside. The fuschia color itself stands for feminism and romanticism. As I got into the place, it was obviously really nice. There's a big picture of the trademark of this place, ya, the woman called Ginger Li. Divided into three part, dining room, vip room, and lounge, this place wasn't that big, but still spacious. I fell for the place so much, it's just comfortable and cozy.

For the food, they got many selections from appetizer, side dishes, rice, noodles, and many more asian delights. For the drink choices they got plenty, yes plenty kind of drinks. I didn't really take an attention about the drink, since I wasn't kinda drinker hehe. And here's a lot of pleasure on my table at that night. ENJOY!

Ginger Li's Salad (IDR 88k)
Smoked salmon, veggies, and asian mix served with Ginger Li's dressing.
The salmon on the top just looked so much appetizing. The dressing was good, and also the salmon and veggies were all freshly served. Personally, I expected for something more creamy. More dressing would make it better, I guess. Not to mention that the price was quite high for meal like this. It was just non sense for me.

Vinh Asparagus Soup (IDR 45k)
The first thing popped up in my mind was the color of the soup. I was just wondering how could it was green. No problemo, it was just a matter of color hehe. Surprisingly, it was more more than great. The crab aroma here was so strong. I just couldn't get enough of this. It's a really must-try!

Hainan Lamb Shank (IDR 110k)
Braised New Zealand lamb shank served with nut, onion, paprika and szechuan sauce.
Came with a really good presentation, this lamb shank just hooked my heart. Previously, I wasn't that into lamb dishes, but this one just made me think twice. I just simply loved this. The meat was so tender, not smelly, and easy to eat. For the taste, it was heavenly delicious. I gotta raise my thumbs up for this!

Ginger Li Kway Teow (IDR 90k)
Wagyu beef served with fat rice noodles, bean sprout, and chives in a dark soy sauce.
To be honest, this Kway Teow was really good. It tasted sweet yet savory in a proper way. The wagyu here was also tender and luscious. I bet it wouldn't be your common kway teow. The consideration here was the portion and the price. I guess I could get 4 plates of Kway Teow Akang with this kind of price. Worth trying? Of course, yes.

Broccoli with Assorted Mushroom (IDR 55k)
As seen on the pict above, there's several kind of mushroom here. The broccoli was fresh and the mushroom was such a good companion. This one was fine, but I gotta admit that it wasn't as delicate as the others.

Ginger Li's Chicken Rice (IDR 80k)
Steamed chicken served with ginger rice, pak choy, and a clear chicken broth.
I liked the rice here, it was savory in a proper way. The chicken and three choice of sauce were all a complete package. For me, the chicken broth was quite tasteless, it might be to neutralize the taste from the other part.

Ginger Elixir Tea
Special tea with beetroot, lemon juice, and syrup.
This ginger tea was one of their speciality. It tasted sour and not too sweet. I personally liked this one, but I the taste didn't suit to everybody's tongue.

Blueberry Creamy Cocktail (IDR 85k)
Absolut raspberry with frangelico, chambard cream and blueberry fruit.
I personally didn't taste this one. It's gone by accident when we took the pict hehe. It must be something delightful smile

Red Queen (IDR 135k)

Grandy with strawberry syrup and red wine.
The red wine here was really strong. The fruits here were such a proper match. I gotta raised my thumbs for this.

Be Passion (IDR 40k)
Fresh passion fruit with passion syrup, fresh lime, and soda.
The non-alcoholic drink here come up with a fresh sensation. It might not be that wow, but I just liked it.


Green Lantern (IDR 35k)

Green grass jelly served with shaved ice, longan and dash of lime.
I was shocked to know that this was the dessert. It might look just so-so. Personally, I loved green grass jelly. I usually got it at my campus with only 3k haha. This one was truly a different one, I loved the freshness of the longan and the ice. The good thing, it's sweet in a good way. Sweet ending?Yes!

Ya, there's plenty delights on the table. Overall, the food here was truly awesome. I love the asian fusion taste. Another good thing also came from the service. I found the waiters here were all hospitable. For the price, it's kinda super pricey yah for a student like me, (thanks to OpenRice and Ginger Li for getting me here hehe) but it's worth spending!! If you're looking for asian and wine, Ginger Li might be the best choice! ENJOY smile

A BAR WIHT LOCAL DELIGHTS OK Nov 11, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Lounge/Bar | Kencan / Berpasangan | Hang Out


Have you ever enjoyed local delights such in a bar or pub?

Eclectic Pub and Lounge just got it all. Originated from Surabaya, Eclectic got a (quite rare) uniqueness. They got plenty local delights such as Rujak Cingur, Nasi Bebek, Lontong Kikil, and many more. Personally, it might be a bit weird to eat something like these in a place like this. Does it really work for me? Let's check it out later.

As I got into this place, I was spoiled with a black-dominated interior.
The ambience here was really strong and characterful. I thought there must be something good in every details. For me, the atmosphere was kind of gothic or anything related to this, ya not just because the checkered tiles

As mentioned above, beside serving international dishes, they also got local delights. Here they are, plenty delights at that night.
Super Yummy

Super Yummy

 
chopstickMonster Mushroomlol
It's sort of mushroom filled with melting mozzarella cheese and topped with bacon sprinkles. First impression, it was really superb. It's perfect to get it in one bite, it just melted in my mouth in a heavenly way. Undoubtedly, it was a great starter..
Just So-So

Just So-So

 
chopstickPotato Skin with Cheese & Bacon
This one was not far different from the previous one. Yes, kind of same toppings with a different basis. It tasted good, but the potato skin here was too thick, it's more like a half-cut potato. Frankly, it just failed to beat my favorite potato skin, the one at Tony Roma's.
Super Yummy

Super Yummy

 
chopstickDeep Fried Tentacleslol
It's not calamary, onion ring, or any other usual deep-fried starter. For me, this one was the winner among all of the starters. I just couldn't get enough of this. It's absolutely a must-try.

 
Iga Penyethuffy
Yes, it was the first local delights on the table. It was actually not my dish. The ribs itself was not that tender. Truth told that it must be eaten with such an effort. For the spiciness, it was too much, for some people.
Just So-So

Just So-So

 
Nasi Paru Pedas
It came in a really big size, happy or not? I wasn't too happy because there's still another dishes to try. For me, this one was much better than the previous one. I loved the deep-fried spinach, it's such a great yet unique companion to the fried beef lungs.

Nasi Sambal Udang

Nasi Bebek
The fried duck here was really tender, for the taste itself, it's just fine.

 
Blueberry Panna Cottasmile
Let's just get straight, it's really really delightful. It's so smooth and fluffy. The blueberry sauce was just a great match. It must be the reason, I'd be here again someday. Sweet ending?Yes, indeed.

 
Creme Bruleehuffy
Frankly, this one wasn't as good as my expectation. For me, It's too sweet and too much. I just fell for the simply good presentation.

 
Warm Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Creamsmile
I was so happy to have this on the table. It's one of my favorite sweet ending. Obviously, the presentation wasn't as good as the two others. I just wondered why there's a chocolate sauce on the top of the cake. For me, it didn't make me curious to know the real "melting" inside. Ya, it's just my personal thought hehe. For the taste, it's really good, the chocolate melted in a proper way. It's another sweet ending I got at that time.

Overall, it's such a great experience to have both international, yet local delights in a bar like this. Monster Mushroom, Fried Tentacles, and Blueberry Panna Cotta were my favorites. Unfortunately, I didn't found their uniqueness here (local delights) as their power. In my opinion, the finger dishes and desserts were much more delightful than the local delights. I gotta raise my thumbs for the price, international food, and the atmosphere. Again, it's just in my opinion loh hehe. Do you agree? Let's give it a try and give me your shouts smile

FUSION SUSHI NEVER DIES Smile Oct 06, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Jepang | Restaurant | Sushi | Kencan / Berpasangan | Kumpul Keluarga

Many people believe that sushi never dies.
Many people crave for sushi for plenty times.
Nowadays, even sushi's not that hip as ramen, it still sticks in the lovers' heart.

A couple weeks ago, several food bloggers and me just attended a gathering at Taiyo Sushi held by Openrice. It was actually my first time here and it's kinda hard to reach from my home. As I got into the places I was welcomed by the so-kind waitress who wore a kimono. The ambience here was dominated by wood element and quite vast.

Before enjoying their delightful dishes, we could see the making of those sushi and the manager just told us a little brief about the food and their speciality.

And here they are some of their signature dishes.

 
Aburi Mozarella Roll (56k)
Salmon sushi filled with crab stick, cucumber, bread crumb, and topped with mayo, mozzarella cheese, floss, and salmon roe.
It undoubtedly looked so tempting and came in a quite big portion. For me, this one tasted nice, but I just wondered where the cheese was. It's kinda cheese-less, I guess. Overall, everything here was such a good match.

 
Taiyo Special Roll (52k)
As there's Taiyo in the name, I expected something very special. Ya, it's true that this special roll was heavenly delicious. The salmon and burnt spicy-mayo just melt perfectly in my mouth. It's a must-try for fusion sushi addict.

 
Unagi Salmon Special (54k)
Salmon sushi filled with bread crumb, cucumber, unagi, and topped with salmon roe and mayo.
I gotta say this one was not as fusion as the others. The salmon here still dominate the unagi. Salmon feat Unagi? I think there's no regret to try this.

 
Tempura Maki Floss (22k)
Frankly, this one was as simple as ABC. At my first bite, I could feel the crunch and savory in my mouth. It might be just like another maki floss, but I was into it.

 
Spicy Salmon Roll (26k)
Fried salmon sushi topped with spicy mayo.
I simply fell for this one. For me, the fried stuffs and spicy mayo were both the hero of the meal.

Overall, I really fell for Taiyo sushi and I enjoyed those time with the other writers. As a fusion sushi lovers, I gotta raise my thumbs for the food. For the price, I think it's still properly affordable. Thanks to Openrice and Taiyo Sushi! I will have a visit there later!

Gelare merupakan kedai ice cream yang mungkin tidak terlalu terdengan. Tapi, sbenernya punya banyak rasa yang enak-enak banget.

AMBIENCE
Tempatnya yang ada di PI terbilang cukup kecil, hanya bisa menampung sekitar 20an orang. biasanya orang-orag lebih suka untuk take away daripada dine in. Tempatnya sendiri cukup nyaman, untuk ngobrol2 sama temen sambil makan eskrimnya yang enak lol

MAKANAN]
Pilihan rasa ice cream nya ada banyak, hingga belasan rasa. Saya memesanchopstick Waffle Delights (55k) dan chopstickBanana Pancake (35k). Awalnya saya tidak menaruh harapan yang banyak. Pertama, saya mencicipi wafflenya. MMmmmm, ini adalah waffle terenak yang pernah saya makan. Teksturnya lembut di dalam, garing diluar. Rasanya juga pas. Ditambah lagi dengan nikmatnya satu scoop es krim strawberry cheese cake. Untuk pancakenya, juga tidak kalah dengan resto-resto pancake lainnya. Untuk topping pisangnya, menurut saya sih rasanya biasa aja.

PELAYANAN DAN HARGA
Masa-mas waiternya agak linglung saat saya memesan. Untuk harganya, menurut saya agak terlalu mahal, apalagi wafflenya yang kecil. tapi semuanya itu tertutupi dengan kenikmatannya. Pastinya, saya akan ke sini lagi untuk nyobain wafflenya lagiiii.

Feel The Kitchen Sensation OK Aug 28, 2012

Ismaya memang selalu hadir dengan konsep yang fresh dan menjadi perhatian banyak orang. Pada waktu-waktu Kitchenette pertama kali buka, susah sekali untuk makan di sini. Setiap saat selalu penuh dan ramai.

AMBIENCE
Desain interior di Kitchenette ini sangat bagus, terlihat seperti open kitchen, ya sesuai dengan namanya. Ketika restoran ini rame, suasana makan jadi tidak terlalu enak. Berisik sekali.

MAKANAN
untuk makanan, saya memesan Edouard Gallete dan Mac & Cheese. Galette di sini seperti crepes dengan topin yang savory. Rasanya nikmat, ditambah agi dengan balutan keju mozarella di atasnya. Untuk mac and cheese, menurut saya, terasa sangat cheesey dan toppingnya cukup banyak.

Pelayanan di sini cukup baik. Namun, terkadang sulit sekali untuk memnggil waitersnya.
Secara keseluruhan, kitchenette sangat layak untuk dicoba. Sebaiknya, mengunjungi kitchenetta jangan di jam yang ramai. ya, meskipun setiap saat ramai. menurut saya harganya yang agak over-priced untuk pelajar seperti saya hehe.
