(Who love garlic?)

Me! Me! Me! I really really love garlic since I was little, I don't know why, but I love the smell and taste of garlic. (though the aftermath of eating garlic is quite discomforting) So as a garlic-lover, I decided to eat at Mad for Garlic that day, a restaurant that specialized in serving garlic-based Italian cuisine.Even though they serve garlic-based Italian cuisine, Mad for Garlic was actually originated in Korea in 2001. They already have branches in Korea and Singapore, and the one in Indonesia is located in Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, one of the biggest malls in Jakarta, I bet you won't have any difficulties in finding this restaurant.

 
The interior is decorated like medieval European rustic tavern, there are garlic hanging here and there. (I bet draculas won't be able to enter this restaurant, lol!) The place was quite, cozy and a little bit dark, the restaurant itself is spacey and I reckon they can accommodate more than 100 people.

They have smoking area and non-smoking area, I opted for the non-smoking area that day. It was not really crowded that day, I bet because it's not time to break the fast yet. The place was quite, the only thing I could hear was some Western songs that are played from the speakers.

Without further ado, let's talk about their food!

Crispy Chicken Salad (IDR 60k)

 
The Crispy Chicken Salad is basically salad topped with chicken and crispy fried wonton skin. Not a big fan of vegetables or salad, it tasted pretty okay for me. The only thing I questioned was where is the crispy chicken, because the skinless chicken fillet was definitely not crispy at all, and they definitely write "crispy chicken and oriental salad dressing" on the menu. I guess the 'crispy' word refers to fried wonton skin not the chicken.

Chicken & Pasta Combo (IDR 120k)

 
The Chicken & Pasta Combo was super duper freaking delicious. The pasta tasted pretty decent and the chicken was to die for, it was seasoned nicely, tender, flavorful and perfectly grilled. To make it clear, this was my favorite menu at Mad for Garlic, I won't mind to have this menu again every time I go to Mad for Garlic!

Overall, it was a nice visit to Mad for Garlic, I felt like I have fulfilled my craving for garlic that day. The service was friendly and quick, the food was nice and the ambiance was cozy. I wouldn't mind to have another visit to Mad for Garlic, especially for the Chicken & Pasta Combo!

It's not a secret that Pantai Indah Kapuk has been a popular dining spot in North Jakarta, especially with many types of restaurant that have opened their outlet at Pantai Indah Kapuk. You can find cafe, bar, dessert house, Korean restaurant, Japanese restaurant, Chinese restaurant and many more here. Beatrice Quarters is one of the restaurant that is located at Pantai Indah Kapuk, it is an Italian Fusion Restaurant with cute and homey concept. Having heard about this place from a friend of mine, I decided to have my light and early dinner at Beatrice Quarters that day.

Let's talk about their food!

Chicken Teriyaki Rice Pizza (S) (IDR 50k)
There are many selections of topping for the rice pizza, they have Japanese style toppings such as chicken teriyaki, beef teriyaki, unagi teriyaki and seafood curry, and they also have Italian style toppings such as mushroom, chicken carbonara, pepperoni, meat lover, seafood carbonara, and salmon carbonara. You can also choose the size for the rice pizza, there are small size and large size. (3-4 pax)

 
I chose small size rice pizza with chicken teriyaki flavor, the rice pizza came on a pan like usual pizza. It was sizzling hot when this menu arrived at my table and it had strong teriyaki scent. The toppings consist of chicken with teriyaki sauce, scallions, mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise sauce, nori (dried seaweed) and katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes). Not a fan of dried bonito flakes, I found it quite discomforting because of its strong fishy smell. The mozzarella cheese was generously given and I always love cheesy rice. The chicken was tender, nicely seasoned and super duper delicious! (I wished more chickens were given though) The portion was quite big as well, I reckon the serving is enough for 2 people.

It has been raining all day long and it was really cold in Jakarta that day. (which is pretty unusual!) Seriously, the weather has been really strange lately, although I personally prefer cold weather rather than hot one, but sudden temperature changes really make me feel sick. Despite all of that, on that lazy and cold afternoon, I decided to eat at Locale 24 Diner & Bar which is located not really far from where I live. The restaurant itself was really easy to find thanks to its sparkling-green-bus appearance. 

Let's get started with their food!

Sin Cia Po Laksa (IDR 48k)

 
Sin Cia Po Laksa is a combination of chicken, boiled eggs, shrimp, shrimp cakes, tofu and udon. The gravy contains a lot of coconut milk, it was creamy and tangy. The filling was generously given and tasted pretty decent, it was a perfect dish for rainy days indeed!

That's what I am thinking about that day, I don't know why, but I really don't feel like eating that day, I guess it's caused by the odd weather in Jakarta lately, it can be raining all day long today and it can be super humid on the next day. So, I found a restaurant called Jill in Marketbar and I looked at a segment called "A Little Bit Hungry" on their menu which consisted of various unique side dishes such as truffle fries and stuffed crispy potato skin which I will discuss later. Feeling that it was a right choice to have light dinner with various unique side dishes, I decided to eat at Jill in Marketbar.

 
The restaurant itself is quite big and spacey, I reckon they can accommodate 60-70 people. They have smoking area which is located near the bar and the non smoking area which is located near the cake display window. The concept of the restaurant itself is bar, so you would see many bottles of alcoholic drinks on the display.

 
Let's get started with the food!

German Potato Salad (IDR 15k)

 
Those were words that came up on my mind when this menu arrived on my table. German potato salad consists of sliced potato, pork bacon (you can choose whether you want it to be served with turkey or pork) and nuts. The presentation was quite unflattering and untidy, but I changed my mind when I tasted it, it was SUPER DELICIOUS! (you really shouldn't judge a food by it looks, right?)

 
I'm not exaggerating, but it was really delicious, I never thought German potato salad would be delicious like this. The pork bacon was savory, fragrant and generously given considering the price is quite cheap. The potato was salted nicely and it was drenched by olive oil. The combination was just perfect and I'm craving of this German potato salad right now! (sigh!)

Stuffed Crispy Potato Skin (IDR 30k)

 
Stuffed crispy potato skin consists of crispy potato skin, mashed potato and turkey bacon (you can choose turkey or pork bacon) topped with melted cheese and sour cream. It was super delicious, the potato skin was crispy, and the mashed potato was really soft. Even though I couldn't really feel the turkey bacon because it's been overpowered by the melted cheese and sour cream, the potato itself was already nice and it was a perfect snack for potato lovers like me!

 

Truffle Fries (IDR 35k)

 
The truffle fries consists of french fries with grated parmesan cheese and truffle infused mayonnaise. The french fries tasted like usual french fries, but the truffle infused mayonnaise was delicious, even though it was a bit oily, it tasted pretty decent.

Iced Lychee Tea (IDR 28k)

 
The iced lychee tea was indeed a thirst-quencher! I love how it was not overly sweet and had strong lychee taste. Oh, and I love how they served the lychees on a skewer!

Virgin Bellini (IDR 40k)

 
Actually, I would like to order Blueberry Cheesetail but it was unavailable at that time and the waiter suggested me to try their Virgin Bellini. It consists of peach, peach syrup, orange juice and lemonade, and the portion was quite big, I didn't expect they would serve it in huge glasses like that. It tasted pretty decent, a bit sour, tangy and sweet at the same time. I love the combination and it was a thirst-quencher indeed!

Overall, I enjoyed my light dinner at Jill in Marketbar, the service was friendly and quick, the food was unexpectedly delicious despite its unflattering appearance and the ambiance was nice. I would love to eat their super delicious German potato salad again next time!

For some reasons, I don't really like place that were too noisy and packed with people. And that's why I love to go to the coffee shop because the ambiance in coffee shop is usually cozy and quite. (though I know several coffee shops that were super noisy and packed with people)

Let's move on to their coffee and food!

Char Siew Bao (IDR 17.8k)

 
(Dimsum in coffee shop, why not?)
The Char Siew Bao is a steamed bun with pork filling, it is one of the signature dishes in dimsum. The one that they served here tasted pretty decent, the bun was soft and the pork filling was generously given. But, I kinda felt the pork filling was overly sweet, I think it would be nice if it's less sweet.
