Ignasia’s Cake Me Away at Ruko Cordoba PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

November 24th, 2017. Never heard about Ignasia’s, I was happy when Hans posted about the new cake shop in PIK area. Yaaaay. Another new place. Love their tagline too: cake me away. It’s like take me away, but they replaced “take” with “cake” hahahaha.. By the way, Ignasia’s named after its owner, Ignasia Kriss.

Located in Ruko Cordoba, I visited Ignasia’s after a new coffee shop and before our date at restaurant nearby. They put several tables on the 1st floor, then we went upstairs to their cafe. Beautiful place inside the 2nd floor. They put lovely words or quotes on the wall with pretty font. I was like having a private party with coffee and cake in a pretty garden with my hubby.

Latte 35k

Loved the latte. The flavour was mild. The texture was milky but not too milky. And the after taste was perfect. They served it in a big cup. Cool! At first I wanted to try their Flat White, but I think I tried their latte first. Maybe next time I tried their Flat White.

Iced Chocolate by Korte – Crafted Chocolate: West Java 37k

Lovely presentation. But hubby said that it was a little bit flavourless. They offered simple syrup, but hubby said it lacked of chocolate flavour. Well, they said to us that it will be a light chocolate. Maybe that’s why it was not too chocolate. I think I will try another chocolate drink later.

Classic Mocha Cake 40k

Super love the classic mocha cake! It was really good. They said it’s healthy. Whoaaaa.. it didn’t taste healthy hahahaha.. I wasn’t really a cake person *yeah it’s true* I only ate cake just to taste it a little bite. But this cake was different. I was the one who finished it, not hubby hahahahaha.. The mild texture, the not-too-sweet flavour, perfectly addictive!

Black Forest 40k

Thank you Kriss for the complimentary take away black forest. I looooooooved it. But I prefer black forest with generous rhum in it hahahaha.. *dancing dancing* Fluffy texture of the cake with not too sweet  flavour.

Bonus photo below: a Piping Bag logo. I thought it’s carrot. And Kriss said, “Why everybody said that it’s carrot???” HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Mo-Mo-Paradise at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK Jakarta

January 24th, 2017. Before it’s opened for public, I got a chance to visit them, but unfortunately, I had another event at the same time. So, I had to pass the chance. Well, such a coincidence, I knew one of the owners. And I got a chance to try them in an exclusive private tasting. On a sunny day, we came to the place, ready to attack the food. LOL. Mo-Mo-Paradise.

SAM_7133

Located at Pantai Indah Kapuk area, Mo-Mo Paradise is an International restaurant chain from Japan. The first Mo-Mo-Paradise was opened in Kabukicho, Shinjuku, Tokyo in September 1993. The first Mo-Mo-Paradise in overseas was 2003 in Taiwan, and after that followed in Thailand in 2008, China in 2010, Vietnam in 2014, USA and Cambodia in 2016. Until now, in 2016, they have 68 restaurants in 7 countries include Japan.

IMG_2523 IMG_2527 IMG_2522 IMG_2524

With warm hospitality from the servers, we were explained about the concept of the restaurant. They have Vegetables Market for the all-you-can-eat side dishes beside the beef. They have 3 kinds of soup and 5 kinds of beef. The drinks were free-refills. *love love love* T&C: 90 minutes AYCE.

Between the sauces, I prefer the Goma sauce than the Ponzu sauce. And the egg were for Sukiyaki’s dipping. But we cooked the egg in the soup. Uuugh, delicious. 🙂

IMG_2531 IMG_2530 IMG_2532 IMG_2543 IMG_2544 IMG_2548 IMG_2549

They have 3 kinds of soup. Sukiyaki, Shabu Shabu and Kimchi. In one bowl they can serve 2 soups maximum. We were served 2 bowls.

Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu

The sukiyaki soup is sweet and savoury at the same time. The original shabu shabu soup is light yet rich in flavour. But, I favourited the sukiyaki soup. I think it’s the most delicious sukiyaki soup I’ve ever tried. No, I’m not exaggerating. Try it yourself and get ready to be amazed.

Kimchi

A mildly spicy soup. I was skeptical that it will be very spicy, but it’s not. It’s very rich and not too spicy. Loved it.

I love all the beef, except the tongue. The tongue was a little bit chewy. I prefer beef that melt in my mouth. My favourite was the Wagyu Chuck Eyeroll. But the US Chuck Eyeroll was also good. I could say that they’re really really using premium beef. Right now, looking at the photos, I’m drooling, literally. Congratulations Mo-Mo-Paradise. Welcome to Indonesia!

Nocturnal Cafe Coffee Bar Kitchen at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK Jakarta

November 6th, 2016. After hopping in Kelapa Gading area, we decided to go to Pantai Indah Kapuk. Gaby wanted to try new place there. So we drove to PIK and searched for new cafe. We discussed about a couple new places and then, ended here. Nocturnal Coffee Bar Kitchen.

IMG_9458

From the facade, the place looks promising. Big glass windows, comfortable ambiance and moody atmosphere. A lot of corners to do #OOTD too. There’s a small boutique inside the cafe. And after you came in through a big door, you will find a spacious area. You will find a smoking area, a dining area and right behind the boutique, some quiet corner to do your own things. Well, a simple review will come to you below. Enjoy.

Ice Tea

Cappuccino

There’s something wrong with my friend’s expression after trying the cappuccino. Then, I tried it by myself. I’m not a coffee drinker, you must know. But, it doesn’t mean I cannot drink coffee. I can still sip a coffee. And when I tried a sip of this cappuccino, I only tasted milk and water. The coffee was just a hint. So, it’s not coffee with milk, but it’s milk with coffee. LOL.

IMG_9472 IMG_9471

Thai Milk Tea Cake

From the texture of it, I said at first to my friends, “Looks so dry.” But since there’s not much variants at the time, we still ordered it. And voilaaaaa.. it’s dry. LOL. The cake tasted like it’s been too long in the dessert stall. The good thing about this cake was the cream. I didn’t like Thai Milk Tea. But this cream *Thai Milk Tea flavour* was delicious. We ended up nibbling the cream. Hahaha..

IMG_9469

I love the place. It’s really good to hang out, blogging or just some me time doing anything. Well, maybe I should come back to try their food. There’s nothing wrong to give them another chance, right? Nocturnal, wait for us, okay!

Holyduck Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) Jakarta

July 17th, 2016. I had an invitation to review a new place that serve Balinese cuisine. Located in Ruko Crown Golf, it was easy to find it. I went with my @DailyFoodSeeker foodies. We were doing our job at other place. So after that we went there and enjoyed our moments. Holyduck.

SAM_4884

Holyduck is in 2nd level of Holywings. We stepped inside and went to 2nd floor. The ambiance of the place reminded me of Bali. Well, it’s not spacious but it’s quite comfortable to eat with your family and your loved ones. Love the murals, too. And for those who wanna take good photos, don’t forget to reserve the “natural light” table. LOL.

Lumpia Bebek 27.5k

Fried spring roll with duck meat filling and vegetables, served with peanut sauce and combrong chili sauce

Love the spring roll. Crunchy and crispy. Tasted good with generous duck meat filling. It was one of the best spring roll I’ve ever had. Not too oily, with delicious taste of the duck meat. Hmmm… one recommended menu.

IMG_6632

Sate Lilit 35k

Fish and chicken satay, wrapped around lemongrass stick, served with Balinese spices

It’s delicious with tender meat. Well-seasoned. Satay Lilit is one of a satay variant from Balinese cuisine. So I knew right away that there will be satay lilit in the menu. If you like satay lilit, you should order this one at Holyduck. Outstanding!

IMG_6634

Ayam Pelalah Bali 68k

Shredded chicken with Balinese spices, served with white rice

They said it’s very spicy. Well, I thought for a second and I convinced myself to try this menu. I couldn’t agree more. It’s very spicy! Too spicy! My friends liked it very much. They said it was one of the best menu there. Well, for those who like spicy chicken menu, you should try this. Spicy-recommended. Hahaha..

IMG_6635

Urap Bali 17.5k

Vegetables with grated coconut and Balinese spices

I didn’t really like vegetables, but I can assure you one hundred percent, this is the best Urap Bali I’ve ever tried.

Signature Crispy Duck 77k

Balinese crispy fried duck served with white rice, urap Bali and the Balinese sambal

It’s their signature. After one bite, I knew right away why it’s their signature. 🙂 It doesn’t need trying very hard to impress me. The duck meat was tender and juicy. The skin was crispy yet delicate. Tasted so delicious, I believe I will order it again and again and again.

IMG_6631

Bebek Betutu 77k

Balinese duck with Balinese spices, served with white rice, plecing kangkung and Balinese sambal

Juicy and tender duck meat. And I love the sauce. It’s really enhanced the taste of the duck meat. It’s my second favourite duck dish at Holyduck, after the signature crispy duck. It’s spicy but I couldn’t stop eating it. And yeah, I think I ate 2 portions of white rice. LOL.

Betutu is a Balinese dish of steamed or roasted chicken or duck. This highly seasoned and spiced dish is a popular dish in Bali and Lombok.  The term betutu refers to the use of rice-husks, not “smoked” as it is often mistranslated. Heated by kindling of coconut husks, these piles of rice husks retain their temperature for five hours—the proper time required to cook the bebek betutu.

Bebek Lombok Ijo 77k

Roasted duck with green chili sauce, served with white rice, buntil daun singkong and Balinese sambal

I guess, I will be back soon to eat the signature crispy duck and bebek betutu and urap bali. LOL. I will ask my hubby to accompanying me. Soon. By the way, congrats Holyduck for the opening, and please.. keep up the good food. 🙂
