Sunday Brunch at Keyaki Restaurant Sari Pan Pacific Jakarta

October 29th, 2017. I got invitation to Keyaki Restaurant at Sari Pan Pacific Jakarta mid October, but didn’t try the food since I had to be elsewhere. So, we arrange a Sunday Brunch there. I asked Aline and Cindy to join me. Yaaaaay.

Indulge in an authentic Japanese dining experience at Keyaki Japanese Restaurant, where exquisite Japanese cuisine is served in traditional fashion at Sari Pan Pacific Jakarta. The restaurant’s robatayaki dishes consist of the freshest, most succulent seafood that is directly imported from Japan. Watch as chefs masterfully grill your food then pair it with their signature sauce right in front of your eyes. Other must-haves include the Gindara Zen (Gindara fish grilled to crispy perfection while still moist and tender inside), Mix Kinoko Foil (a delicious mushroom soup) and Jyu Jyu Beef (a vegetable and premium beef hotpot).

Sunday Brunch started from 11am to 2.30pm. It was my first time trying the food there. Years ago, my friend told me that according to her, Keyaki was the best Japanese restaurant. And that day I could prove it. The weekend buffet is available at 345k++ per person. Wow, should be good, right?

The weekend lunch buffet at Keyaki Japanese Restaurant offers an authentic Japanese spread with an extensive range of healthy and delicious Japanese dishes. You can enjoy classic Japanese items including sushi, sashimi, teppanyaki, agemono, mushimono, donburi, tempura, soba and udon noodles, Japanese curry and more. We also offer a delicious and decadent selection of desserts for those with a sweet tooth.

The place wasn’t very spacious, but it was quite regularly in the placement of the buffet menus. Beautiful preparation and friendly people, made me very comfortable there. They were also very helpful when we wanted to take photos of the food. What a lovely experience there. I tried almost all the food. From sushi, teriyaki, sukiyaki and desserts.

My favourite was the sukiyaki. OMG! Marvelous! And the seafood were so fresh! All the seafood. No wonder my friend told me that it was the best Japanese restaurant since forever. Kudos Keyaki!

Oranje Juicery at Ruko Golden 8 Gading Serpong Tangerang

December 16th, 2017. It was starting to rain, we needed place to stay a bit. Then, I spotted Oranje Juicery, and I told hubby to visit the place. Good thing, we still could sit inside. There’s one left table at the corner. Nice!

IMG_9158

Beautiful place with outside tables and inside ones. It was pretty crowded with moms and their kids. But the good thing, they weren’t noisy at all. Nice job moms! When I saw their menu, I saw Cold Pressed Juice, Smoothies Bowl and Salad. I showed to my hubby, and he said, “I’m not hungry.” LOL! I knew it. He never liked smoothies bowl or salad or cold pressed juice hahaha. So, I asked him to stay at the corner. Let me did the menu selection hahaha.

Bakcang Red Rice 35k

I was very happy when I spotted pork bakcang red rice on the menu. Yaaaay. And yes, it’s non-halal, but it’s our favourite! Well, even though they made it with red rice, it was very delicious. The filling was generous. The texture of the rice was very good. @yennymakanmulu approved!

IMG_9170

Gyoza 45k

8 pcs Gyoza (non halal)

Another non halal menu. At first they said, “Sold out, sorry.” But then they asked me if I still wanted to order it. I think the gyoza was available again. “YES!” I replied them hahahaha. It was super fluffy texture with super delicious flavour. Sometimes I got a kinda weird flavour gyoza, but this one was great. Love it!

Firenze Gelateria at Ruko Golden 8 Gading Serpong Tangerang

December 16th, 2017. When I drove to Ruko Golden 8 area, I saw this Firenze Gelateria. Well, my hubby loved gelato, so I asked him whether he wanted to try the gelato or not. Then we stopped by.

IMG_9138

Opened since August 26th, the place wasn’t spacious but quite comfortable with cheerful ambiance. You can sit outside or inside, and still feel the cosy atmosphere. Actually we loved the playlists they played in the place. My hubby recognized the speaker they used. He said, “It’s very good speaker!” We were in a gelateria, and he spotted the speaker. LOL. I spotted the hello miabella wall. It means hello my beauty or hello beautiful. Something like that.

Gelato Medium 28k

We ordered mango flavour and baileys with additional 7k for Christmas Baileys. Hubby said that the mango was just okay, but I always loved mango flavour hahahaha. The baileys flavour was very good. Strong flavour of baileys. Hmmm.. the combination was mia preferito. 🙂

[PONTIANAK] Nasi Ayam Afu 鸡饭 at Gajah Mada Pontianak

October 8th, 2017. After our breakfast, it was time for us to go back to Jakarta. But, before we went back to the airport, we had to eat lunch, right? So we stopped by at Nasi Ayam Afu. Some people recommended this place to me. Well, I said to hubby, “Let’s try it.”

IMG_6425

Well, actually I went there before, twice. But they’ve already closed. So like they said, third time’s a charm. Finally it opened for us hahaha. And the funny thing, when I took photos, the owner looked very happy. Even, he posed for me. Then he told his staff to do some pose, but the boy didn’t want to hahaha..

Nasi Ayam 35k

It was delicious, but I think they could do better. I think they needed to add the sweetness of the sauce. But other than that, it was quite okay for our lunch at that time. Or maybe I had too much expectations for this one? No idea.

[PONTIANAK] Kung Fu Uduk at Prof M Yamin Pontianak Kalimantan

October 7th, 2017. After a night with congee (you can see my previous review about Bubur Pesawat Ahui), I was still hungry. *yeah rite* Just nice that Kungfu Uduk invited me to come to their place. Yaaay. So that rainy night, we went there for another dinner.

IMG_6392

The unique thing about Kungfu Uduk: they put up pictures of kung fu with pictures of mandarin actors like Jacky Chan, Jet Lee, Donnie Yuen, Bruce Lee, Stephen Chow, and also pictures of Kungfu Panda, Master Shifu and Boboho LOL. They have 2 levels dining area, but we sat at the first level.

Paket Kungfu Master 29k

Complete with Nasi Bakar Rempah mixed with anchovy, peanut, and yam leaves, with fried chicken, sate telur lilit peanut sauce, telur kecap, corn fritter and kremesan.

They changed the chicken with Ayam Karate (Fried mini chicken with super spicy traditional herbs). And yes, they sell the Ayam Karate for packate too. Anyway, I love the nasi bakar rempah. It was really good with the tantalizing aroma and delicious flavour. The Ayam Karate was also good, especially for my hubby, he loved the crunchy texture. The kremesan? Dabest!

Es Shanghai 12k

It’s a good dessert and quite cheap. I finished it after it melted. LOL.

IMG_6413 IMG_6414

Thank you Kungfu Uduk for inviting us. We had so much fun! Too bad we had to go back to our hotel. Definitely will be back when we come to Pontianak. See you super soon!

December 16th, 2017. Well, actually I arrived at fu fu fu first before I went to level 2. But we just had our lunch, so I thought I should go for coffee first before another lunch. LOL. After coffee, we went back to level 1, and ordered food there.

IMG_9175

It was their first day opening. The owner was very nice, and she said that I was the first blogger that coming to their place. She surprised that I knew about them hahaha. The place is very comfortable with very friendly and helpful people. When I came, I think they were inviting friends and family. It was happy to see the place full-packed. 🙂

1 Steam Rice, 1 Chicken / Beef / Seafood, 1 Veggie, 1 Soup

I chose this menu. Big portion of rice *yaaay* Ginger Spring Onion Beef, Comeo with Salted Fish, and Seaweed Soup. Well, I put high expectation to the beef, but it needed more flavour, I guess. But the comeo was really good!!! And the seaweed soup? Great job Mama Fū. LOL.

IMG_9199

Prawn Cakue

OMG! Even my hubby who never liked prawn, agreed with me that this one was super delish. The cakue was crunchy. The prawn was very tasty. Dip it into the mayonnaise, and enjoy the luscious taste.

Small portion with huge effect on us hahaha. We munched it nonstop. We hope they gave us a bigger bowl hahahaha..

IMG_9208

Same with previous snacks, we loved this one. The banana was tender and sweet. No need anything to add, we just enjoyed the sweet snack. Thank you for making such a delicious snack.
