Tarterie & Co at Benda Kemang Jakarta

November 16th, 2017. It was such an honour for me to visit Tarterie & Co before anyone else. They were born as an online shop. And now they opened their first outlet in Kemang area. Congrats you guys!

They occupied 2 level building. The 1st level for kitchen and the shop. And if you want to eat the cakes right away, you can go to the 2nd level. They have tables there. It’s not huge, but it’s a nice place to enjoy the cakes. Pink and light blue colours everywhere. What a nice ambiance for a cake shop. I can see myself sitting there with friends, eating cakes, laughing, talking and doing everything else all day long.

I tried several of the tarts and cakes, and my favourite was: Ferrero Rocher Cheese Tart.
It's sweet, delicious, perfect texture, and addicting!
Actually they sent me Cendol Cake before I went there. It's good but not my favourite.
After Ferrero Rocher, I chose Banana Chocolate Toffee Mini Tart.
By the way, the Pandan Mango Sticky Rice Tart was very unique.
But I could tell all of you that all of their cakes are very very recommended!
You don't trust me? Then, order their cakes, see for yourself.

Congratulations Tarterie for the opening! Hooray! Yippie!

Brew & Wood Coffee at Puri Mutiara Cilandak Jakarta

November 16th, 2017. I knew this one from my friend. When I asked Brew & Wood Coffee, they weren’t open yet. I waited and waited, and finally when I had an invitation to Kemang area, I asked them again, and yaaaaaaay, they already opened since end of October I think.

IMG_8101

They have a nice place. A spacious level one, with stairs to go to upstairs. The level two looked like a high mezzanine. Comfortable and cosy with friendly barista. They used hashtag #ngopiditurunan because it’s literally “ngopi di turunan.” Located in a descending road, it’s quite unique. An hour there and I’ve already heard sudden brake sounds a couple times. LOL.

IMG_8102 IMG_8105 IMG_8106 IMG_8107 IMG_8114 IMG_8117 IMG_8118 IMG_8115 IMG_8116 IMG_8108 IMG_8113 IMG_8109 IMG_8110 IMG_8112

Kopi Susu Turunan 25k

At first, I wanted to ask if I could have Kopi Susu Turunan with single shot coffee. Turned out, they have already put it in a bottle. But the barista said that it’s not strong. It’s quite milky. So I guess it was safe for me. When I sipped a bit, it’s milky but still got a strong coffee flavour. Yaaaay. I think people will love it. Not too sweet, also.

IMG_8123 IMG_8131

Ice Cheekult Tea 35k

Lychee with Yakult? OMG! Really GOOD! Thirst-quenching, very fresh and addictive! And the name was very cute. Cheekult! LOL! Definitely will order this one again every time I go there hahaha.

IMG_8119 IMG_8120

Almond Croissant 30k

I think I took long time to take photos, when I ate this one, it was a little bit chewy. I prefer crunchy croissant, actually. So I didn’t finish it. So sorry. Tasted so good, but the texture wasn’t my palate. I wanted to ask them to warm it up for me, but I didn’t wanna bother them. So, yeah, I only ate half of it. Maybe next time I will eat it in a flash, no need to take photos hahaha..

IMG_8121 IMG_8122

Congratulations Brew & Wood. Such a recommended place to visit with friends and family.

Altitude Grill at The Plaza Tower Thamrin Jakarta

November 17th, 2017. When I heard about Altitude Grill, I was very excited. Then, when we arrived at the 46th floor, I just realized that it was previously Salt Grill. They told me that they wanna try their own concept, and voila, Altitude Grill was born. Got invited to their pre-opening lunch, I was very curious, since they had new chef.

IMG_6864

They renovated the place, for sure. It was such a nice place. Still got the exclusive ambiance but more friendly touch. And don’t forget the view. Definitely one of the best places to visit when you want to have lunch or dinner with breathtaking view.

IMG_6860 IMG_8198 IMG_8200 IMG_8201 IMG_8202 IMG_8203

Complimentary Bread

IMG_8199

APPETIZERS

Grilled Watermelon Salad 160k

Feta, Arugula and 25yrs Aged Balsamic

At first, I thought it was a tuna sashimi. They made the texture just like tuna. Turned out it was grilled watermelon. It was crunchy watery cheesy. Yes, they put feta cheese in the middle. And I loved their 25yrs Aged Balsamic. Mild and light. Not too strong, enhanced the flavour of the salad.

IMG_8204 IMG_8205

Scallop Filled Squid Rings 280k

Crispy Pancetta, Raspberry Bacon Jam with a Parsley Shallot Plush

Pork detected! Yay! Hahahaha. I could see Aline sad face. LOL. I loved this dish. The scallop was fresh and moist at the same time. And the squid was very soft and tender. Super tender! Such a recommended dish. Trust me. It melt in your mouth! Tasted delicious with beautiful presentation. Too bad Aline couldn’t try this one. Poor her. *sad face*

IMG_8206 IMG_8207

Apple Mango and Prawn Cocktail 160k

When it came to our table, the Chef told us how to eat this one. Mixed it together and enjoyed it. It was totally amazing. Such a simple dish, served in a martini glass, could become an overblown dish. Too bad, it was in a small portion. I prefer they put it in a big bowl hahahaha..

IMG_8210 IMG_8208 IMG_8209 IMG_8215

Triple Cooked Wagyu Ox Tongue 180k

Creamed Hazelnut Dukkah

I think I had 3 portions of this wagyu ox tongue. HAHAHAHA. Yes, it was THAT good!!! They served the tongue in a slice. But it was one of the best slice of tongue. Errr.. maybe it’s the best, so far. For me. I don’t know about others, but I believe they will agree with me. It’s super tender. Topnotch! And it’s one of the best appetizers I’ve every tried!

IMG_8211 IMG_8213 IMG_8214

MAINS

Oven Baked Salted Egg Hollandaise Black Cod 320k

Purple sweet potato and Asparagus

The black cod was tender and soft. But I had a very high expectation for the salted egg hollandaise. It’s too light for us. Yes, for us. Not only for me. I, for sure, couldn’t taste the salted egg. Maybe they were afraid it would be too salty. I hope next time they will make the salted egg hollandaise super tasty.

IMG_8234 IMG_8235

Bistecca a la Altitudine (min 500 grams) 260k per 100g

Sher Wagyu MBS 8/9 T Bone

Chef Gary sliced the wagyu in front of us. I could see that he did that without any effort at all. He showed us how tender the wagyu. Uhlala! It was very aromatic. I was drooling, literally, at the same time Chef Gary sliced the wagyu LOL. Look at the pink colour. Slurrrrp. Yes, it’s tender and juicy and well-seasoned. And the best part was the fat. I asked them to give me the fat part hahahahahahaha..

IMG_8220 IMG_8221 IMG_8222 IMG_8224 IMG_8226 IMG_8227 IMG_8231 IMG_8233 IMG_8236

Picanha (200 grams) 225k per 100g

Sher Wagyu MBS 8/9 Rump Cap

The Picanha was also good, but still my favourite was the Bistecca. Another pink colour wagyu. OMG! Look at the oily meat. *jumping jumping* There was not much fat in the Picanha. So yeah, back to Bistecca. LOL.

IMG_8230 IMG_8229

Steak Sampler 1100k

The Steak Sampler consist of 5 options: Wagyu Ox-tongue, Tenderloin, Picanha, Rib Eye and Skirt. Hmmm.. too bad I didn’t have a chance to try them all. Full tummy! I said, it’s really a genius idea to serve this kind of menu. You can try 5 kinds of meat in one big wooden board. For those kinds of meat, I could say it was worth the price.

IMG_8244 IMG_8238 IMG_8239 IMG_8240 IMG_8241 IMG_8242

SIDES

Whipped Potatoes 90k
Confit Shallots 80k
Truffle Fries 95k
Buttered Spiced corn and Crisp 80k
Buttered Broccoli Gratin 80k

The whipped potatoes and the buttered spiced corn and crisp were my favourites!

DESSERTS

Assorted Desserts 150k

Sneak Preview of our Dessert Buffet

What is your best dream? A table full of desserts. LOL! When I saw the long table, I forgot everything else. Hahaha. Those delicious desserts with beautiful presentation. I laughed when they told me that it was a little bit “dangdut.” HAHAHA. Well, it wasn’t “dangdut” at all. Actually, it was very pretty. Pretty and delicious. Perfect combination, right? And you can eat all of the desserts for only 150k. Cakes, tarts, cupcakes, chocolate fountain, mousse, ice creams, you named it.

Manhattan Coffee & Cuts at Panglima Polim Melawai Jakarta

November 12th, 2017. I saw this place somewhere on my hunting-new-places-journey LOL. I told my hubby, “Let’s go there!” after we had Sunday brunch at Dharmawangsa. Manhattan Coffee & Cuts. A coffee shop had a collaboration with barber shop.

IMG_8001

Yes, another blur photo LOL. It was too bright outside. And I forgot to check the result, again. Sorry *sobbing*. Actually I love the place. The AC is cold. But, the entrance to coffee shop and barber shop is the same. So many people came back and forth. Anyway, I really love the combination between barbershop and coffee shop. It’s really a nice idea. Sometimes you have nothing to do when you’re waiting for your turn. So, it’s nice to wait in a coffee shop. Sipping your coffee while watching people come and go. And I see nowadays, many barbershop did that. Great job!

IMG_8002 IMG_8003 IMG_8004 IMG_8005 IMG_8018 IMG_8013 IMG_8008 IMG_8019 IMG_8020 IMG_8021 IMG_8012 IMG_8010 IMG_8011 IMG_8009

Foxy Brown 20k

Coffee, Milk, Brown Sugar

I asked them if they could serve my coffee in a take-away cup with their logo, and they said they didn’t have it yet. They said sorry to me for not have the availability of such kind of cups. What a nice baristas. I said that it’s okay. I just felt that it would be nice to have a cup of coffee with their logo on it, and took photos with it. 🙂 Anyway, I loved how they give name to the coffee. This one was Foxy Brown. It was delicious with rich flavour of the coffee than the milk, but it wasn’t too strong. My favourite.

IMG_8007

Great job Manhattan, to add coffee shop to your barber shop. Superb!

[PRODUCT] Tehbotol Sosro Tawar Produk Baru dari Tehbotol Sosro

Halo, perkenalkan namaku Yenny. Aku adalah seorang food blogger. Kegiatan membuat blog ini sudah aku lakukan sejak Oktober 2012. Semua diawali dari keisengan semata. Lama-lama aku jadi menikmati kegiatan ini. Ada rasa senang saat orang menghargai hasil karyaku dengan membaca review-review yang aku tulis di blog. Sebagai seorang food blogger, aku dituntut untuk duduk manis di depan laptop. Mungkin orang yang melihat menganggap bahwa aktivitas aku sepertinya santai dan sangat menyenangkan. Mereka tidak tahu bahwa sebetulnya membuat review di blog itu sangat menyita waktu dan melelahkan. Tidak mudah untuk menceritakan semua makanan dan minuman yang pernah aku coba, ke dalam tulisan untuk dibaca banyak orang.

Aku butuh sesuatu yang bisa membantu menyegarkan otakku yang sudah penuh dengan segala macam kegiatan tersebut. Biasanya aku cari minuman yang dingin. Tapi minuman dingin jaman sekarang sudah terlalu banyak menggunakan pemanis buatan. Selalu ragu saat memilih minuman dari rak-rak yang berderet di supermarket atau mini mart. Betapa gembiranya saat aku melihat ada produk baru dari Tehbotol yang fresh, original, natural, dan pure. Tehbotol Sosro Tawar. Diciptakan sebagai alternatif air putih, karena tidak mengandung gula (unsweetened), memiliki rasa yang lebih light, dan lebih mudah diminum karena tidak terlalu sepat teksturnya. Tehbotol Sosro Tawar selevel dengan kesegaran Tehbotol, dan setawar air putih, tapi tidak mengandung gula dan rasanya benar-benar tawar. Cocok sekali untuk kesegaran otakku setelah mumet dengan kegiatan review sehari-hariku.

IMG_7970 IMG_7967

Sekarang aku bisa dengan bangga berkata #GueTawar

Cornerstone Coffee & Workspace at Ruko Diamond Gading Serpong Tangerang

November 11th, 2017. We wanted to visit a new restaurant that opened some times ago. When we were heading to the restaurant, I saw a big sign about new coffee shop in Ruko Diamond. We turned around and entered the complex. Cornerstone Coffee & Workspace evidently just opened a week before.

IMG_7947

I thought it was a small place, turned out it was quite cosy. They had their own roastery machine. They will have working space on second floor. I could imagine the place will full of people with the same affection and passion. I saw a lovely corner, and I chose the place to sit. I talked to the owner, and I could see her happy face when she talked about Cornerstone.

Ice Lemon Tea 28k

IMG_7965 IMG_7966

Ice Matcha Latte 39k

When I ordered this one, I thought it was only matcha with latte. Turned out it was matcha coffee latte hahaha. And I didn’t tell them to make it only one shot coffee. It’s waaaay too strong for me. Good thing, the matcha did a good job in softening the strong coffee. It was really good!

IMG_7964 IMG_7963

Martabak Cake 42k

Finally. A delicious martabak cake. I never found a good martabak cake, until then. Too bad, we were so full, we couldn’t finish the cake. It was too big. Hmmm.. *rubbing my tummy* But it was really good. Previously, I prefer martabak stays as martabak. Cake stays as cake. But this one made a difference. Martabak can be a cake. LOL.

Congratulations Cornerstone. Cannot wait to be back again.
