LEKKER BEKKER


This is one of my favorite place for waiting or taking some meals. Why? Because the place is so cute with calm color (pink, white and green), feels like at your own home here. Maybe, there's a little touch of Holland, like the nuanced style, you'll hear some Holland songs here,  and enjoy your meals.



While waiting, you can see them and enjoying your surroundings. There's a lot of cute stuff there, like a hand-made craft, etc. Look at that shelf, you can buy it, for sure! Haha


Yeay, Poffertjes with Vanilla Ice Cream! FAVORITE!
Poffertjes is like a pancake, but it was made like a ball, they was made with yeast and buckwheat flour. They can also be served with other sweet garnishes, such as syrup, whipped cream or strawberries, for added flavor. But I love the original, and added a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it always be my favorite.


Bolletjes Original! 
It was like a poffertjes, but different shape. Bolletjes is more crunchy, because it isn't too thick and big. And again, I love the original, without vanilla ice cream, only the powdered sugar (Idk how to explain it, haha).



Hollandse Stroop! Idk what is it, there's no explanation on the menu book. So, I asked the waiter and he explained to me. It just a combination between strawberry syrup, milk and soda. What do you think, eh? Good enough?! Okay, I'll try ordered this 'things', one of recommendation cold drinks and it was nice, fresh your mind! Hehe

PORKY!


NO HALAL! PORK WAS HERE!

This is one of may favorite menu, called Nasi Hainam Campur, a Chinese Food. It was consist of Char siu (also spelled chasucha siuchashao, etc), crispy pork belly, half boiled egg and roast chicken, also a bowl of Sayur Asin. 
*FYI, Char siu literally means "fork burn/roast"  is is a popular way to flavor and prepare barbecued pork in Cantonese Cuisine.

I really like it, in my opinion, it was better than Nasi Campur Kenanga. 

Oh ya, Kacamata is specialized in Nasi Campur, but there are some the others menu, like dim sum. So, don't worry, if you didn't like pork, there have some options available menu. So, try it!

Salmon Attack

When Christmas was near, my team at office got a plan for making a Christmas Dinner. At first, we were confused about the place where we gonna go. Many places we've chosen, but finally we choose Canteen Plaza Indonesia for our Christmas Dinner. Canteen Plaza Indonesia offers simple, gourmet style European and Asian food, along with a wide selection, e.g. cocktails, wines and spirits.

When we're arrived, we talked and laughed at each other, sharing our daily activities, silly question and stories, and many else, hehe. And while waiting for the others, we ordered some drinks, like sparkling water, iced lemon tea, coca-cola, etc.

After an hour and everything is assembled, we ordered some dishes. Many kinds of them, so I can't explain for each because I forgot about the dishes' name (too long for a simple dish, haha). So sorry! :(


Well, I will explain the dish which I've chose. The dishes name is Salmon with Asparagus, Quiche Lorraine and Hollandaise Sauce. Hmm, too long for a simple one, isn't it? Haha! For sure, I didn't really know what it looks like, I just know it will consist of salmon and asparagus, hehe. And when it served, looks so small (maybe the plate is too large - comparison, hehe). It's so juicy and soft and such a nice combination taste with ..... (the left one, I don't know what it is, like a sweet grape, or maybe baby tomatoes?) Ahh, I really didn't know about it! Haha. 

FYI, the favourite by far, highly recommended by their loyal customers is the Pesto Spaghetti with Crispy Chicken breasts.  The rich and moist Pesto sauce smothers the perfectly cooked spaghetti and combined with the the crispy chicken gives this dish a tasty crunchy zest. The Tuna Pizza is a sure hit as well. 



After finished our dishes, we've a 'exchange gift' YEAY! All wrapped in newspaper, so we didn't know what we'll get! Lot of fun, love and laugh. A perfect and nice team. Oh ya, before going home, we took a picture - togetherness, as a memento. I'm happy to know you, guys! :)

FOOK YEW


Fook Yew, is one of Ismaya's establishments (the same company which own SKYE, Social House, Kitchenette, Pasta de Waraku, etc) with bravest concept "Who says Chinese Food can't be yummy and fun?"


FOOK YEW Shanghai Bistro and Bubble Tea Lab is a fun casual Chinese eatery inspired by the tasty delicacies from the streets of Shanghai, set in an old-fashioned Chinese-pop-style canteen. This restaurant looks different, it has a striking color (red and green) with the atmosphere like in Shanghai and also full of 'provocative' sentences, or maybe called like some giant poster. Hehe. Then, I found a sentence that I love - "Eating is like a horizon, there's no limit", that words were behind me! Haha


When you walked into the restaurant, you'll see some chefs are making something there, like fishes in the aquarium, aren't they? HAHA. I don't know what it should called, open kitchen, maybe? Hmm, idk. And when you've got a table and take a sit, you'll be given a menu of foods and drinks. Oh, I really hate if asked to choose one of the many types of food, confused. Well, I just looked to the 'recommendation symbol' when choosing it, the easiest way! Haha


Jasmine Tea, my dad's favorite tea. Watch out, its hot! For sure, I don't like eat or drinks which is still hot. But.... it was good enough when it served cold! Hehe. This is one kind of Chinese Tea, you can ask to be refilled if the tea is over.


Spaghetti Crispy Chicken with Black Pepper, it was chosen by my mom! She likes it, very tasty!  Spaghetti with chicken placed on top and covered with black pepper sauce. It felt a little bit spicy, but still delicious with the crispy chicken.


Baked Beef Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce, was chosen by my sister, she also like it, like my mom! But the portion is bigger! Haha. Sweet and sour the taste of it. The spaghetti was inside and maybe covered by tomato sauce and cheese and baked it!


Salted Fish & Chicken Fried Rice, was ordered by my daddy! I think it was consist by its name, hehe. Such fried rice which mixed with salted fish and chicken, savory! Hap hap hap! 


I've choose it, Seafood Fusilli with Huangpu Sauce. Idk before, about Huangpu Sauce, haha. Because it took a long time for me to choose, so I choose by the "recommendation symbol", the easiest way! Hehe. And what? It wasn't really good as I imagine, haha. Maybe the taste is too sweet for me. But well, it consist of fusilli, prawn, fillet fish and a lil bit of salted fish here.


For the last, I ordered a Coconut Pudding, one of my favorite dessert. Yay! Well, the taste is good enough, but still better Coconut Pudding made by XO Suki or Maystar, haha. The pudding served cold and not too sweet, so enjoy with it!


And what? I got a privilege, a free dessert! How can it be? Hmm, I just made a member which offered by Fook Yew (Ismaya Group) so I got it for free! So fresh, consists of fruits and milk! Not only this kind of dessert, but there are another menu you can choose. Happy tempting!

Happy New Year!


Happy New Year, guys!

I was here, because kidnapped! Haha. A day before January 1st, 2013, my friend who called Charlie was texting me, "where I gotta go tonight?" Hmm, I actually with my family, just hang out with them! And what?! He will pick me up at 9 PM haha. And we're going to Bintaro (Gerus' home) and Aaron was there, waiting for us.

Then we're going to another block (still in Bintaro), to pick up Irin (Gerus' girlfriend). And ready...!! We've a plan to Sudirman Park, before. Haha. But we didn't have access to go there. We chose Bureau, finally!


Before here, we're going to McD! Because some of us got hungry and chose McD Prosperity Burger! Having eat so fast, because time show us at 11.45 PM. Come on, hurry!

Okay, we're here now! Just order a bottle of Jack Daniel's for 8 of us, with a can of Coca-Cola and Pokka Green Tea. Mixed with it or pure? It based on your taste! :)

The place looks nice, with two floors. There was a live music in upstairs, but we didn't like it, because it will hard for us to talk with each other. Haha. Chit chat till the store closed, around 2.40 AM, haha. A nice place to hangout with your friends and spending the night!

Then before went back home, we're looking for 'early breakfast' at Warung Ipin, Veteran. Chit chat again and laughing a lot! Haha. And what? It's already 3.50 AM, time to go home! 
Saying good bye to each other *hugs & kisses* Love you guys! See you on the next year!

Ladies Night Out!


Going to Pantai Indah Kapuk on Thursday's night, just for having fun with my friends, called it ladies night, eh? I don't think so. We're just having a little christmas dinner, before the day is come yet. We're so very messy and splashy, laugh as much. Haha. Take a picture everywhere, using our iPhone or iPad! Haha. How can you imagine? :)



Okay then, finally we're felt so tired haha. And try to order some main course, we're having different menu at each other. We've ordered such as Chicken Steak Piccata, Chicken Parmigiana, Salmon Steak Piccata, Spicy Chicken Pizza and also Earl Grey Tea (a tea blend with a distinctive flavor and aroma derived from the addition of oil extracted from the rind of the bergamot orange, a fragrant citrus fruit. Traditionally, the term "Earl Grey" has applied only to black teas that contain oil of bergamot as a flavoring). I really love the smells of Earl Grey :)


And now, this is my menu! I've ordered Salmon Steak Piccata, a pan fried salmon fillet served with mozzarella and pomodoro sauce and side potato wedges. Like I said before, because meat is too mainstream to choose, haha. It's so juicy! 

For the place is very recommended, cozy and spacious. And it has two parts, indoor and outdoor, both of them are really nice for dating/hang out or maybe a meeting. Their specialties are for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and drinks. Come and enjoy with their variety of food from Thin Crust Pizzas, Pastas, Pancakes, Sandwiches and many more.

Enjoy and happy tasting!

A little gift!


A little gift from auntie, she just back from Australia and gave a bottle of this, a little graduation's gift from her. Hehe. It was a red wine, 2008 Penfolds Rawson's Retreat Shiraz Cabernet. Fantastic ripe fruit characters shine through in the Rawson's Retreat range that are made to be enjoyed now. Their Shiraz Cabernet is a perfect example with it's ripe, full-bodied varietal flavors of raspberry and blackcurrant.

Shiraz is one of the world’s finest and most widely planted grapes. Originating in France, it shines as a single varietal and blends from the Rhone Valley region. Shiraz is the most planted grape variety in Australia, making up 44% of total red wine production.

Winemaker's Note
Color - Dark cherry red
Nose - Lifted, fresh and lively, offering an array of ripe summer berries and dark spices, with just a touch of subtle oak lurking in the background.
palate - A lovely balance os summer berries and light spices with soft tannins adding length on the palate. This medium bodied wine has an attractive fleshly mid-palate and juicy freshness on the finish, ideal for early drinking enjoyment.

Deliciousins!

California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is a leader in authentic California-style cuisine with a recognized consumer brand and an established, loyal customer base. There are currently more than 240 CPK's in 33 American states and nine foreign countries.


Here we go! The menu book is ready, its time to choose! 


And now, talked about the place. The place is comfortable and spacious. Beige color that dominates this place, with wood texture for the interior. The lighting here is not too bright, so the impression is to relax. The service here is also quite fast and friendly.


This is the newest menu for appetizer, Spicy Chicken Tinga Quesadilla. I think you know about this, especially for you who like to watch masterchef, hahaha. Okay then, I will tell you a little about Quesadilla (if I'm not mistaken), is a flour/corn tortilla filled with a savoury mixture containing cheese, other ingredients or vegetables, (often) then folded in half to form a half-moon shape, originated in Mexico. And for the Spicy Chicken Tinga Quesadilla, is a crispy heart-baked flour tortilla with grilled lime chicken, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, chipotle sauce, caramelized sweet onions, roasted red and yellow peppers, black beans and fresh cilantro and also served with CPK's homemade ranchito sauce.


Tadaaaa! Looks so fresh, isn't it? Yap, that's right. This kind is really fresh and hmmm. It was made of a blend of apple and lime juice with a splash of grenadine, called it "Cold Mountie", one of favorite Tropical Fruit Drinks here. The taste is like mixture of sour and sweet, but the freshness remains. And for the other favorite like Summer Rain (blended mix of pineapple, mango, orange and lemon juice with fresh strawberries) and Sunriser (orange and lime juice with a splash of grenadine). 


And for the last, I've chose Chocolate Soufflé Cake which made of belgian chocolate soufflé cake served with warm with CPK's triple-thick hot fudge on vanilla bean sauce and with extra vanilla ice cream. Such a nice combination between warm and cold.
You should try it, guys!

Warm Greetings!

Raining and stuck on the traffic everywhere. Like a gloomy day, gloomy Jakarta.

And I don't know what I should do when I've arrived earlier in this morning. No everybody is here.

Okay, I have something to do then, making a cup of coffee! I think nothing better than having a cup of coffee in the morning. It will make your day!

Happy working and have a good day!

BEN & JERRY'S


FINALLY, I found you here!

While waiting for the plane - going back to Jakarta, I just go around at the food court of HongKong International Airport, so many foods here! Really confused to choose one! 

And when I just go the other side, I found Ben&Jerry's! Haha. Okay, without thinking twice, I immediately ordered a cup of cookies and cream with extra topping, marshmallow! Nothing better than cookies and cream, it can attract me so well! 

It's a must for you to try! Haha

Piccata


Salmon again!

Going here because I had a lunch meeting here with office team. Because meat is too mainstream! Haha 

I choose Salmon Piccata with Mashed Potatoes and Ranch Style Beans. The portion is bigger than the other salmon menu I ever found (Pan & Barrel, Canteen, Uncle's Jim). Before going to the main course, you'll got a starter free compliment, 2 pieces of bread with butter. Its okay while you're waiting. Hehe

Why everybody said, the taste is good here?! But I don't think so. It's standard for me, nothing special here. I'm not really suggested you to go and eat here. Haha. Maybe the special one is baby back ribs. But it's okay if you wanna try.

Babananaaaa!


A sense of the colonial era is what you get when you first walk into Ragusa. Not what you would expect from an ice-cream parlor, but who would bother, if your only intention was to dig into a big scoop or more of the 'sinful' pleasure known as ice-cream!

Ragusa is often packed and many have to wait for a table as they are not equipped with enough room to accommodate the continuous flow of customers. You will find the staples of any ice-cream parlor such as Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry or premium ones such as Rum Raisin and a variety of other blends. The most unique out of the lot is the the Spaghetti Ice Cream. 

Do not be dithered as this is simply ice-cream in the shape of spaghetti. Ragusa also serves a mean Banana Split, sweet banana and three scoops of ice cream (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry), drizzled with chocolate melt and nuts. The sweetness is absolutely perfect. This is one of the favorites here and the highest price for the ice cream here.

I got a package menu, which is consist of Spaghetti Bolognese + Iced Lemon Tea. New Promo here!
Not bad to have this for my lunch, enough portion for me.

But my mom's recipe is better than this!

The place is quite nice, but it feels 'hot' during the day. Only one drawback, the food presentation is quite long to wait!
