[HOTEL] Holiday Inn Cikarang Jababeka – Deluxe Room with Terrace – Part Two

December 17th – December 18th, 2016

Holiday Inn Cikarang Jababeka have 4 places to eat. Delizio Restaurant which serves a fine selection of Indonesian and western dishes, sharing place with Huang’s Chinese Cuisine which serves (of course) chinese food. There’s also Ikkyu Restaurant, a Japanese food restaurant. Light snacks and refreshing beverages can be enjoyed at Rilassato Coffee Shop. Fresh pastries and cakes are available at Cannella Bakery. Let me share you a little bit about their food. Oh I forgot to tell you guys that I asked Fiona and Tom *her new husband* to join us. Well, it’s not that Fiona had old husband. I mean, they’re newly-wed hahaha..

LUNCH & DINNER TIME

Lunch and dinner served in Delizio and Huang’s. They have 2 menus for each restaurant. Well, when we arrived, we got complimentary lunch *yaaaaaay* and we had the power to choose which restaurant *another yaaaaay* hahahaha. So, for lunch we chose chinese food from Huang’s. Because.. we got complimentary dinner too *hooraaaaaay*and for dinner we chose Indonesian and western dishes from Delizio. Happy tummy!

Huang’s Chinese Cuisine

Corn & Crab Soup 30k / 45k

Best corn and crab soup ever! Luckily, I asked them to reheat this soup. If it’s cold, I don’t think it will be as good as it was. Tip for eating soup: keep it hot or warm. Best for your taste bud.

Lemon Fried Chicken 48k / 72k / 95k

Lemon chicken was always my hubby’s favourite. So when they ordered it for us, I was like, “Oh my, he will be very happy to see lemon chicken.” And he was. 🙂 It was really good, he said. Well for me, I didn’t really like lemon chicken, so I guess it’s just another delicious lemon fried chicken hahaha..

Black Pepper Beef 75k / 98k / 145k

Black Pepper Beef was also one of my hubby’s favourite dish. Since his mom never cooked beef, we seldom ate beef. But black pepper beef was always a choice when we wanted to eat beef. Good thing, this black pepper beef from Huang’s was very delicious. Tender and juicy meat in a sticky black pepper sauce. Bell pepper and onions enhanced the fragrance of the dish. Recommended!

Sweet and sour sauce Grouper Fish 55k / 85k / 120k

This was the best dish, I guess. Simple, and yet it left me very very satisfied. The fish was tender and delicious. The sauce was definitely the boost of this dish. I said, “This is delicious.” many many times hahahaha..

Ifu Mie 56k

Ifumie was never my favourite. I prefer softer and fluffier noodle. So yeah, it was one of the “okay” dish for me.

Sauteed Hongkong Kailan 37k / 59k / 75k

What a fresh vegetables. If you knew me better, you will know that I used to like vegetables. But, these years, I started to feel bored with vegetables. Some people that didn’t know me will say that I never liked vegetables. They were so wrong hahahaha.. yet they thought they knew me. So, this time, I ate the kailan. It was fresh and tasted so good.

Delizio All Dining Restaurant

Soup Buntut 95k

A local favourite beef oxtail broth with fragrant herbs and spices served with steamed rice

Best oxtail soup ever! The beef were all tender and juicy and very appetizing. The broth was perfectly well seasoned. And it was one generous oxtail dish. Some place gave only 3-4 beef tops. I think in this bowl, countless beef hahahahaha.. I was very satisfied that night. Full tummy, smile face, sleepy head. LOL.

Laksa Benteng 43k

Peranakan spicy soup with vermicelli noodles served with shredded cucumber, chicken, prawns and coriander leaves

This wasn’t my order. I tried a sip and I knew right away that it was good. Will order it next time. 🙂

7 Spices Lamb Shank by Chef Vikas Khanna 108k

Lamb shank cooked in a mild yoghurt curry

I forgot to try this one, I guess. I didn’t really like curry sauce. But Fiona said it was heavenly delighted.

Sirloin Steak 111k

Grilled 8 oz imported sirloin served with vegetables, mashed potatoes and black pepper sauce

Too bad, we ordered medium well, and it came in well done. I didn’t try it because Tom said it was hard to chew. I asked him whether he wanted to keep it or to change it. Lucky them, he said no need to change it. If it’s me, I would definitely ask for new one. The correct one. 😀

Tenderloin Steak 175k

Grilled beef tenderloin served with roasted potatoes, steamed vegetables and barbeque sauce

This was my hubby’s order. He asked for medium well, but I guess it’s well done too. *sigh* Good thing, the beef tenderloin still tender for my palate, lucky him, right? Love the mashed potato. Yup, I changed the roasted potatoes into mashed potatoes. And it was delicious!

Wasabi Prawns by Chef Sam Leong 58k

Fresh prawns deep fried with crispy batter, dressed in wasabi mayonnaise and served with a mango salad

This is so good! I was skeptical about the wasabi mayonnaise. Turned out it was really really delish. They said it was one of their signatures. And I couldn’t agree more. It was worth it.

Cannella Bakery

Red Velvet

It tasted good but the texture was a little bit dry. Hope next time will be fluffier.

Lapis Surabaya

Same with the red velvet. A little bit dry. But, I love lapis surabaya, so I forgave the cake hahahaha..

BREAKFAST

We had our breakfast in the Delizio/Huang’s. It’s not much, but enough for us. I ate my breakfast before swimming. And after nobody came to swimming pool, I finished my swimming and went right back to the restaurant. Continued my breakfast hahaha..
