Turning Point Coffee Gading Serpong Tangerang

May 10th, 2015. I went to Turning Point Coffee with fellow foodies. Located at Ruko Golden 8 Gading Serpong, Turning Point was quite “naughty.” They didn’t put any sign in front of their place. I wonder how many people walking around those area to find them hahaha.. Good thing, we followed some people who knew the place. So, it’s not hard to find it.

IMG_3956

The place was not big, but very cozy with minimalist concept. I found it very nice to hang out with buddies or just some “me time” and bring your book. They divided the place into non smoking and smoking area. The smoking area was in the backyard. Very nice place. Aaaah, I just show you the place lah..

The Menu

IMG_3992

Long Black 25k

Not my order. My buddy said the level of the acidity quite high. So, I didn’t try it at all. It will make my tummy unhappy. So, I just took picture of it and let my buddy finished it.

IMG_3967

Hot Chocolate 37k

I was stunned by the beauty of that latte art. It’s not mine. Ugh, I wish it’s mine. I can imagine myself, sitting alone, a novel in my left hand, and a sip of hot chocolate on my right hand. Hmmm.. And when I lift my head, I see Jason Statham is looking at me. Ugh, what an imagination right? LOL.

IMG_3981

Mango Sparkling 35k

Love the colour. It’s so cheerful, right? Taste cute, too. Mango with soda. Sparkling!! Just a simple drink but it can make me happy. 🙂

IMG_3977

Lareia’s Chocolate Souffle Cake 45k

Melted!! I read everywhere that you must take the picture of it before it was heated. But I prefer like this. It’s more tantalizing. The chocolate ganache looked like a golden chocolate. The sticky caramel blended perfectly with the chocolate. Recommended? Definitely!

IMG_3978

Lareia’s Lychee Watermelon Cake 45k

Creamy and fresh in one bite. The crumby layers of almond dacquoise mixed beautifully with the crunchy watermelon. Don’t forget the lychee. Very refreshing. I wasn’t sure at first. Lychee and watermelon in a cake? But, turned out, I love it!! Most recommended!!!

IMG_3980

What a lovely day I’ve spent here. I think I will come back again to Turning Point when I come to Gading Serpong. Yaaaaay.. cannot wait for that moment!! Thanks Turning Point for gave me lovely experience there. 🙂

Publik Markette Grand Indonesia Thamrin Jakarta

Feb 12th, 2015. March 17th, 2015. April 3rd, 2015. April 27th, 2015. Yup, I went to Publik Markette 4 times. 🙂 And every single visit, I always ate their signature pork belly hahaha.. That’s the best meal there for me hehehe.. Btw, Publik Markette is one of Ismaya Group restaurants. No wonder, right? 😀

IMG_0495

Located in East Mall, you will find the place quite interesting. You just go to East Mall lobby, then you go straight to Central Department Store. Find Ground Floor. Exit Central Dept Store, you will find on the right, a really nice and spacious place. Voila, it’s Publik Markette. Well, let me show you around the place.

IMG_0523 IMG_0491 IMG_0506 IMG_0497 IMG_0505 IMG_1700 IMG_3595 IMG_3596

Well, the unique thing about Publik Markette is their concept. They called it Food Gallery. So, they prepare the food at stall behind glasses, and we look around, then we pick our food, tell the server our number, and wait for them to be served. You can pay later.

IMG_0496 IMG_0498 IMG_0500 IMG_0501 IMG_0503

English Breakfast 30k

Huge tea plunger. True. The biggest one I’ve ever seen hahahaha.. Free refill, of course. But with the huge thing, you don’t need to refill it often. *biggest grin*

IMG_2665

Strawberry Lemonade 45k

It’s not my drink. I just sipped it. Big sip, of course hahaha. It’s sour and sour in one glass. LOL. Yeah, you know strawberry and lemonade are sour. Mix them together and what do you get? Super Sour! Hahaha.. No, actually it was super refreshing! Well, you did have sugar on the table, so if you want to add a sweetness to your drink, just add it. 🙂

IMG_0522

Lemon n Mint 45k

Another sour drink. Not mine, of course. It’s lemon with mint. Very refreshing.

IMG_3591

Mango Blush 45k

mango taste so good, people often forget how healthy they are, discover how the king of fruits can help you with controlling cholesterol, improving digestion and strengthening the immune system.

I was in love with this drink. It’s mango with passionfruit. It was sweet and a thirst-quenching with refreshing taste. I ordered it and wasn’t sorry. Love it in every single sip.

IMG_3597

Crispy Pork Belly 155k

served with Hainanese Rice.

Before my visit, I heard everybody said, “Order the Pork Belly! Order the Pork Belly!” So, I ordered the Pork Belly. 3 good slices of Pork Belly (yes, sometimes 3, sometimes 2, depends on the pork’s size). Served with Hainanese Rice. It was indeed the best pork belly ever. Crispy skin with juicy and fatty meat. Melt in my mouth. Ugh, I didn’t want this feeling to be end. I love Pork, beside rice, of course LOL. Anyway, recommended dish!!! *drooling*

IMG_0512 IMG_0511

Scalloped Potatoes 35k

At first, I thought I will find scallop here. But then I realized, it’s not about scallop, it’s about scalloped. Scalloped means sliced or thinly cut. So it’s potatoes gratin with sliced ham and generous melted cheese. I love it. It’s so delicious I think I will come back for  it. And it’s not expensive. I think it’s worth the price. Recommended!!

IMG_1679

Butcher’s Board Focaccia 50k

It’s like a pizza but it’s not. It’s only similar with pizza. Too bad it’s very hard. Good thing they were very generous with the filling and the cheese. Not my favourite. Although, the filling and the cheese were delicious.

Focaccia (Italian pronunciation: [foˈkattʃa]) is a flat oven-baked Italian bread product similar in style and texture to pizza doughs. It may be topped withherbs or other ingredients.

IMG_1684

Pulled Chicken Crostone with Corn 60k

The crostone was a bit hard to chew. I had no idea why. They should make it softer. But, the pulled chicken with corn was terrific. Definitely delicious. I always love corn hihihi.. especially when they layer it with some mayonnaise. Recommended!

Crostone means toasted bread spread with a variety of smooth spreads.

IMG_1687

Bolognese Pipe Pasta 55k

Pipe pasta is a different name for penne. What I love about the dish that it was al dente with generous filling. Penne was never my favourite. But with a lovely taste of bolognese sauce and delicious melted cheese, I enjoyed it so much. 🙂

IMG_1692

Ham Cheese Egg Croissant 40k

The sunny side up egg was very eye-catching. I love the croissant’s texture. Crispy and crunchy. Ham and cheese and egg. Never failed me. It’s beautiful and delicious. Great combination, right? Splendid choice!

IMG_2641

Bitter Sweet Love 50k

It’s a chocolate pie. Heaven for chocolate lover. It’s bitter and sweet. Very lovely combination for chocolateholic like me. The cream added a nice taste to the pie.

IMG_1696

Every time I went to Publik Markette, my tummy was always happy. Cannot wait to come back to the place again. Need to push my buddies to go there. They should try the pork belly. Great job, Publik Markette and Ismaya Group. 🙂

GODIVA Chocolatier Plaza Indonesia Thamrin Jakarta

May 18th, 2015. I went to GODIVA Chocolatier, after a very nice lunch. It’s time for another desserts! LOL. I should meet the brand manager but too bad she stucked in some meeting. So the people there helped me to taste the latest chocolixir. 🙂

IMG_4341

The interior of the place didn’t change at all. Ugh, it’s like yesterday 🙂 This was my 3rd visit and I still love the place.

Dark chocolate and hazelnut. What could go wrong? GODIVA’s dark chocolate was delicious on its own. It was rich and a little bit bitter. Combined it with the nutty flavour of hazelnut, it was so delicate and buttery. I sipped it and couldn’t wait to finish it. Recommended!

IMG_4347 IMG_4349 IMG_4350

Dark Chocolate Banana Chocolixir 60k

Inspired by your favorite banana split. Sip a blend of banana and decadent GODIVA Dark Chocolate. The perfect summer drink!

It’s a little bit lighter than the Hazelnut Chocolixir. Smooth chocolate with a hint of banana. It will indulging your taste bud. The banana wasn’t overpowered the chocolate, and the chocolate did the same. They just completed at each other. 🙂

C’s Steak and Seafood Restaurant Grand Hyatt Jakarta

May 18th, 2015. C’s Steak and Seafood Restaurant Grand Hyatt Jakarta invited me to experience Argentina. I was so excited. A friend of mine told me that Argentina cuisine must be good. I came early. 12 o’clock. Took the time to take pictures, while waiting for others to come. And when I saw Ellyna and Rian came, I was like, “Thank goodness, familiar face.” LOL

E-Invite-Experience-Argentina

Grand Hyatt Jakarta together with Qatar Airways Indonesia have the pleasure presenting chef Federico Ferrari of Park Hyatt Buenos Aires for a special treat from Argentina.  

If you are a meat lover, don’t miss chef Federico while he is in Jakarta!

IMG_4304

Before we meet the Chef and his magic works, let me show you around the place. Last time, I went to C’s and didn’t take even one photo of their interior 🙂 Now, as you can see, I had time to take few pictures. Elegant, right?

The wine flight

Experience-Argentina-Wine-flight

IMG_4293 IMG_4283

My favourite wine: clos de los siete. Why? because the after-taste of this wine is delicious, not like the others. Like I’ve said before in some of my blogs, I prefer a nice after-taste in a wine. Because sometimes the after-taste of a wine was quite disturbing. 😛

IMG_4317

entradas / starters

provoleta de cabra 120k

provolene cheese with preserved tomatoes, mint and almond sauce

first, I thought it was mashed potato hahahaha.. then I read the menu, wow cheese!!! love cheese so much. The texture was chewy and moist in between. tasted good. The almond sauce and tomatoes enhanced the flavour of the cheese. Ugh, I was the one that finish the cheese without needed to share it with the others. *lalala yeyeye*

Provolone (pronounced [pro.voˈlo.ne.]) is an Italian cheese that originated in Casilli near Vesuvius, where it is still produced in shapes varying from 10 to 15 cm (3.93–5.90 in) long pear, sausage, or cone shapes.

IMG_4291 IMG_4289

empanadas de carne 150k

classic beef turn over

“Pastel!!!” I spontaneously shout to the dish LOL. Yup, the empanada was really looked alike pastel. The skin was similar, although the filling was different. This empanada filled with diced beef and raisin.  Well, it’s delicious but it’s not my favourite. Sorry.. I prefer the cheese.. *big grin*

An empanada (Spanish pronunciation: [empaˈnaða]; also called pastel in Brazilian Portuguese and pate in Haitian Creole) is a stuffed bread or pastrybaked or fried in many countries in Latin Europe, Latin America, the Southwestern United States, and parts of Southeast Asia. The name comes from the Galician, Portuguese, and Spanish verb empanar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread.

IMG_4299

mollejas caramelizadas 225k

caramelized sweetbreads with sweet potato and orange purée, mushroom sphere

Last time I ate sweetbreads was in C’s. So now I tasted sweetbreads again. And I think it’s not a usual dish, right? Ellyna didn’t have the courage to try even a little bit LOL. I tried, but not my favourite either. But it’s unique. Really unique. The texture was like tofu. Strong taste, though. Couldn’t finish it. Yeah, let Rian finished it. hihihi..

Sweetbreads or ris are culinary names for the thymus (also called throat, gullet, or neck sweetbread) or the pancreas (also called heart, stomach, or belly sweetbread), especially of the calf (ris de veau) and lamb (ris d’agneau), and, less commonly, of beef and pork.

In Latin American countries outside of Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, the dominant flavoring is coriander leaf (cilantro).

raza black angus 640k

tenderloin 250 gr

I’m still cannot move on from this black angus. It’s so huge, so tender, so juicy, so delicious. I want it again. Me want more! Me want more!  Well, I guess I should woo Chef Federico to make it again for me. Please. Please. I’m drooling right now, literary. Tasted so good, with perfect texture, what could go wrong??

IMG_4308 IMG_4324

raza wagyu argentina 655k

prime rib-eye 250 gr

This was also a nice treat. Wagyu never failed me.  It was tender and juicy. Tasted sooooooo good. The chimichurri sauce was really enhanced the flavour. Well-seasoned. So scrumptious I wanna refill my plate again and again. Huft. You wish, Yen. You wish! Hihihi..

IMG_4320

octopus cooked two ways

The octopus was tender. The texture wasn’t hard-chewy at all. Similar texture like a prawn. How about the taste? Ahmazeeeeng!! So delicious, I couldn’t stop munching. Well, the presentation was a little bit scary at first. But after one bite, I forgot everything about scary octopus hahaha..

bread pudding

Hmmm.. for me, it’s a bit too neat. I miss the texture. Bread pudding should be more.. hmm.. what do you say.. raggy? Yeah, you should know what I mean. I love the hazelnut custard. It was moist and sweet. Such a nice company for the bread pudding 🙂

IMG_4335

flan de dulce de leche

flan of caramel and dulce de leche

I love it. The flan of caramel was very soft and sweet. Such a delicate texture. And absolutely, I prefer this one than the bread pudding. Definitely recommended!

Crème caramel (French: [kʁɛm kaʁaˈmɛl]), flan [flɑ̃], or caramel pudding is a custard dessert with a layer of soft caramel on top, as opposed to crème brûlée, which is pudding with a hard caramel top. The dish is eaten throughout the world.

After that we had free time, so we swam before cooking class. Yaaaay. Only 1 hour, but worth it. So happy. Lalalala.. Actually we thought it’s our free time until dinner, but turned out we still had cooking show and cooking lesson, so we had to end our swimming time. 🙂

Cooking Show & Cooking Lesson Japanese Cuisinie “Sushi” at YuGo Restaurant with Chef Jaelani

Such a lovely time. Finally, I can make my own sushi roll hihihi.. Well, not as good as the Chef, but at least, now I know how to do it. It looked simple but a bit hard, but not as hard as I thought. But, we were having fun. Definitely, that’s the main idea. 🙂

Dinner at YuGo Restaurant (set-up menu)

Prepared by Chef Sularno, Head Chef of Ara Hotel Gading Serpong

IMG_3905

Snuffy Healthy Drink 35k

Consists of green cabbage, pineapple, lemon squash and gyuri. Surprisingly delicious. I had prepared myself to drink a weird taste of drink. LOL. But, it’s quite delicious for healthy drink hihihihi..

IMG_3911

Chawan Mushi 20k

Love the texture of the chawan mushi. Just perfect for my palate. But I just too lazy to add a soy sauce. I think my chawan mushi needed a little salty taste. But, other than that, it was perfect!

Chawanmushi (茶碗蒸し,Chawanmushi, literally “tea cup steam” or “steamed in a tea bowl”) is an egg custard dish found in Japan. Unlike many other custards, it is usually eaten as a dish in a meal. The custard consists of an egg mixture flavored with soy sauce, dashi, and mirin, with numerous ingredients such as shiitake mushrooms, kamaboko, yuri-ne (lily root), ginkgo and boiled shrimp placed into a tea-cup-like container.

IMG_3913

Roll Combination Platter 60k

Love them all. They were savoury and tasty. They made me eat them all in less than 5 minutes LOL. But, it’s true. They were all delicious. I only offered my friend the pink ginger hahahaha.. “You want some ginger?” and he looked at me with devastated expression. “I want the roll!!!” I just shook my head with mean look, “No way Jose!” hahaha

IMG_3923

Sashimi 95k

The sashimi were fresh. They were salmon, maguro and crab stick. My favourite was salmon sashimi. So, when my friend wanted my maguro sashimi, I said, “Go ahead, I prefer the salmon!!!” Salmon is the best sashimi for me 🙂

Sashimi (Japanese: 刺身pronounced [saɕimiꜜ]/səˈʃm/) is a Japanese delicacy consisting of very fresh raw meat or fish sliced into thin pieces.

IMG_3924

Ramen Noodle Soup 55k

Ramen was my favourite. So when they served us ramen noodle soup, I was like.. “OMAIGAT! I really need ramen for this rainy night.” The soup was warm with a perfect texture noodle and well-seasoned chicken meat. The carrot was undercooked but the rest of the ingredients were just perfect.

IMG_3928

Grilled Salmon Teriyaki Sauce 145k – Beef Yakiniku 85k – Mix Tempura 65k

They were all good!!! Love the salmon. A simple teriyaki sauce was a perfect salty-sweet complement to the richness of grilled salmon. The beef yakiniku was tender and juicy. And don’t forget the mix tempura. The tempura was crunchy and crispy. Perfect texture. Splendid. 🙂

IMG_3933

Fried Japanese Green Tea Ice Cream 40k

Not my favourite. Actually the green tea ice cream was not as good as I hoped. And the tempura was a little bit failed. Needed more crunch in there. Anyway, you see the red sauce? Yup, that’s the one. Surprisingly, it was delicious!

IMG_3940 IMG_3943

After dinner, we’re doing karaoke in live music performance. Nice one. And after that, we hangout at my room. Joking, chatting, laughing out loud. Then, they all went back to their rooms, leaving me all alone, after telling scary stories. Grrrrr.. *gave a mean look to those crazy-buddies*

DAY TWO

Breakfast time

Yaaay, breakfast. I was so hungry since last night LOL. I love the fried rice. But the ramen was too spicy. Come on, it’s breakfast. It was really spicy. I thought, “It’s 7 am in the morning, please be good to my tummy.” Bye bye ramen. Huhuhuhu.. But, the pastry was delish, especially the colourful donut. Love it. Rainbow donut!!! I forgot to take some of them for my after-swimming snacks bahahahaha..

IMG_3944 IMG_3945 IMG_3946

Swimming time

Another fun time. We swam again. Splashes water everywhere. LOL. Really fun time, before checked out. After that, another joking, chatting and laughing at my room. We were so happy. 🙂

IMG_3907

Check-Out

Well, it’s time for us to leave Ara Hotel Gading Serpong. Goodbye Ara. Till we meet again. Ciaooooo..

[BANDUNG] Saka Bistro & Bar Sukajadi Bandung

March 28th, 2015. Actually I wanted to blog about this place last month. But too many distractions. LOL. So, here we go. I went to Saka Bistro because I saw it at my friends’ IG. The place looked awesome. That’s why when I went to Bandung, I told my hubby to take me there.  It’s easy to find the place. It’s not far from Rumah Mode. Located before gas station. Just turn left before the gas station, and you will find the place on the right.

IMG_2372

And I was stunned. The place was really fantastic and adorable. My camera instantly fell in love with the place. She couldn’t stop taking pictures hahaha yup my camera is a “she” 🙂 Please enjoy my pictures 😀

The Menu

IMG_2384

Calamari 47.5k

Deep fried calamari with tartar or chilli sauce.

The deep fried calamari was crunchy with a light taste and a bit of chewy. Should eat it while still warm and crispy. If it’s too chewy, it means it was overcooked. Calamari should be tender and only a little bit chewy. Still, it must be easy to bite. It was delicious. Just perfect for my taste bud.

IMG_2404

Fried Stuffed Mushroom 32k

Deep fried mushroom served with tartar sauce.

I love the deep fried mushroom. The texture was just perfect. Tasted delicious. The outsides were nice and crispy and they fried up quite nicely, and the mushroom was juicy and will melt your heart away. Dip it into the tartar sauce and you will forget about everything. Recommended.

IMG_2398

Jyu Jyu Steak 128.5k

Japanese style sliced beef with sauted veggies. Served on hot stones.

Actually, some foodies suggested me this menu. They said it’s super duper delicious. So, for lunch, I ordered this main course. Well, it’s delicious, but not super delicious. Sorry to say. I think I prefer order something else, like Chicken Cordon Bleu. Err, maybe next visit. But, it’s unique because served on hot stones. And they gave a generous beef. But, still, not super duper delicious. Just, delicious. And good thing it came with rice, because the beef too salty for me. 🙂 But overall, it’s nice to eat tender beef with warm rice. *big grin*

IMG_2427

Iced Berry Lychee Tea 22k

Refreshing!! Sweet and very fresh. Such a thirst-quenching drink. 🙂

IMG_2386

Cafe Latte 30k

Actually, I came to Saka Bistro for their art latte. The man behind the gun is Mas Tan2. You can follow his IG: @tan2_sakabistro 🙂 At that time, I asked him to draw my logo [special made by my bestie @syanagawa] on top of the cafe latte. And he did it!! Yaaaay. So cute and adorable, just like me lalalalala..

IMG_2406 IMG_2412 IMG_2429 IMG_2437

Hot Chocolate 28k

For my hot chocolate, I wanted a 3D art latte. So I asked Mas Tan2 to draw my favourite robot cat in the world, Doraemon. And the Doraemon 3D made my day just perfect. So cute I wanted to take it home LOL. As you can see below, it’s a 3D Doraemon, takes its bubble bath. Cuteness overload!!!

IMG_2440 IMG_2444 IMG_2446

Thanks Saka Bistro & Bar. Thanks Mas Tan2. I had such a great time. I surely will come back again and again to Saka. Such a nice place to spend day and nite with your loved ones. See you soon!!!
