I really love how E&O added Indonesian flavours to their menu. I hope it will be forever. LOL.
My most favourite was the Sea Bass Curry. Well-seasoned with flawless texture of the fish.
Don't forget to add rice to the broth. Dabest.
Another favourite was the Rawon. One of the best rawon in town.
Tender meat with a strong rich broth traditional Indonesian beef black soup.
It's really hard for me to find a delicious rawon. And this E&O "Rawon" was perfect!
Ayam Betutu and Duck Curry were also delicious. OMG! They were overwhelming.
The Jagung Bakar was really good. I had them with rice hahahahaha..
My friend maybe thought I was crazy LOL. Don't care lah..
And the "Sate Kambing" was good. Not a single smelly meat.

So, for me, I couldn’t find any non-delicious food there. Kudos to Executive Chef Will Meyrick for his magic hands and creative mind. Great job Chef! Super love to all the food. Keep up the amazing work, Chef. Last but not least, thank you E&O for always serving delicious food to us.

August 9th, 2017. I saw about KLTR Coffee Roasters on my timeline. When a friend posted it in his insto, I asked him about the opening date. Great thing, Natasha asked me to keep her company at the opening date. Yaaaaaay. Wait for me, dear. *and yes she waited for me for almost an hour LOL*

Located in Pavilion Retail Arcade area, they have outdoor and indoor area. Dominated with dark brown colour, I could feel the luxury ambiance, but still friendly, of course. I came in and searched Natasha. Thank you for still waiting for me hahahaha.. She introduced me to one of the owners. And yes, you’re correct! KLTR = Koultoura. Yes, it’s the second chapter of Koultoura. I saw Joe *yes I knew him from Koultoura, we talked a while when I came to Koultoura* but he’s too busy I didn’t wanna disturb him and I don’t think he remember me *sobbing* LOL. Anyway, congrats Joe and Andrian.

Beef Yakimeshi 90k

With poached egg & truffle essence

When I asked about rice dishes, the served told me that this beef yakimeshi was one of the signatures. Natasha said, “I was told it’s really really good.” So yeah, we ordered this one. Well, we loved the rice. I loved the meat *totally in love with the flavour and the texture*. But one thing they need to improve. I didn’t recognize any truffle essence in the dish. They need to improve it. Please. I need more truffle, pretty please. 😀

July 18th, 2017. It’s always happy to be back to Pullman Jakarta Indonesia. And I got good news guys! *dancing* Le Chocolat Lounge is having Afternoon Chocolate Buffet. What?!?!?! Yes, you heard it right. Chocolate Buffet.

Le Chocolat Lounge of Pullman Jakarta Indonesia is one of the places to see and to be seen in town. It is not only known for its cosy atmosphere and modern take on decorated sofas and city scenery magnificently framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, the only chocolate lounge in Jakarta recently introduced a delightful chocolate-themed Afternoon Tea Buffet from 3pm to 6pm daily. For only 188k++ per person, guests can delight in selections of savory Indonesian snacks before moving on to the chocolate-inspired cakes, pastries, fondue and more while sipping their choice of signature chocolate drink, tea or coffee.

Le Chocolat Lounge is a very comfortable place. I was happy to be back there again. When I stayed at Pullman, I forgot to bring my hubby to enjoy the lounge. Well, next time I think I will ask him to join me to this Afternoon Chocolate Buffet.

Guests can enjoy hot dishes, such as Deep-fried Beancurd with Vegetables, Combro, Fried Cassava with Five Spices, Crab Fritter and Banana Fritter with Cheese. The main star of the buffet is of course the generous selection of chocolate-inspired delicacies, including Chocolate Fountains Trio – Milk Chocolate, Caramel Chocolate and White Chocolate, Mini Chocolate Eclairs, Macarons, Chocolate Spiced Chocolate Fondue Cake, Tiramisu, Spiced Chocolate Ganache Tart and the Caramel Roche.
