Uncle Tetsu Indonesia at Central Park Mall Tanjung Duren Jakarta

April 14th, 2017. Holiday! Time to drag my hubby to mall that far from my home. LOL. I think it’s time for Central Park Mall. I wanted to take photos of the latest cake shop there. Well, there’s so many pro and contra about the cake. And I will tell you my opinion here. Uncle Tetsu.

Located on LG floor at the bridge between Central Park and Neo Soho, Uncle Tetsu is easy to find. If you walk from Central Park, it’s on the left side. If you walk from Neo Soho, it’s on the right side. It’s easy to spot the venue. The one with the long queue. Everybody is very curious about the place.

Signature Cheesecake 80k

I read a lot about this one before I tried it myself. Some people told me that it’s just okay, not that delicious. Some people said that it was super delicious. But when I tried it myself, in my humble opinion, it’s too cheesy. Remember, that I don’t like cheese in a cake? But next time I will buy it again and eat it right away. I ate my cheesecake when it’s already put it in the chiller. So, the texture changed, I think.

Upload photo, anything about Uncle Tetsu. Follow and tag @uncletetsuindonesia with hashtag #uncletetsuindonesia on your IG account. And get 30k voucher from April 24th to May 23rd purchase.

6 Degrees Coffee Drinkers at Central Park CP Mall Tanjung Duren Jakarta

February 26th, 2017. First, I heard about this place when it opened their first outlet at Mal Alam Sutera. I got their invitation too, but it’s too far from my place. So, I had to reject their invitation. Then last year, they opened their second outlet at Central Park Mall. Closer from my place, of course. So, on a sunny day, when I had invitation to Central Park Mall, I stopped by to the place and tried their food. 6 Degrees.

IMG_3993

Located on the ground floor of Tribeca, 6 Degrees offers two different kinds of ambiance. The indoor area is one serene ambiance with rustic and vintage atmosphere and also murals on the walls. While the outdoor area is very comfortable with lush green plants all around. For photos, of course, I chose outdoor. Natural light is the best.

IMG_3991 IMG_3996 IMG_3995 IMG_3997 IMG_3994 IMG_3998 IMG_3989 IMG_3990 IMG_3992

Hot Tea Jasmine 30k

IMG_4008

Classic Ice Tea 30k

IMG_4006

Potato Chips 30k

Seasoned potato chips or sweet potato chips for 1 Bucket

My hubby chose the seasoned potato chips. At first I didn’t wanna try the potato chips, since it’s not a favourite for me. But he said that it’s really good. When it’s almost over, I tried a small chip. And yes, it’s delicious. Crispy but soft.

A potato chip (American English) or crisp (British English) is a thin slice of potato that has been deep fried, baked, kettle-cooked, or popped until crunchy. Potato chips are commonly served as a snack, side dish, or appetizer.

Boneless Chicken Bacem 50k

Chicken leg, homemade bacem sauce, onion, tomato, steamed rice, and clear soup on side

I never heard about this menu. Well, since they couldn’t provide any fried dishes at the time *because the frying tool was broken* we chose this one. I chose it because the name is very eye-catching. Bacem is very popular for traditional dishes from Java. I always heard tempe bacem or tahu bacem, but it’s the first time I saw a menu named Boneless Chickan Bacem. And it was a right choice! The chicken was tender and delicate. Don’t ask about the homemade bacem sauce. Superb. It’s very aromatic with rich and savoury taste. Recommended!

Porto Bistreau at Central Park Mall CP Tanjung Duren Jakarta

February 26th, 2017. I found out that this restaurant opened a new outlet at Central Park Mall. Lucky me, my friend worked for the Altima Group, and he invited me to try their Breakfast set menu. I went there with my hubby and met fellow foodies there. Porto Bistreau.

IMG_3955

Porto, an Italian word meaning port in English, takes patrons to “visit” various harbours for a world culinary adventure.

I’ve never went to their Serpong outlet. Everybody said that it was lovely, but it’s too far from my place. So, when I heard about this Central Park outlet, I was very happy. Finally, I could try this place. Plus, I could take my hubby with me, yaaaaay.. It’s so rare, actually. Hahaha. He’s not comfortable eating with foodies. It’s not his crowd, he thought. Well, at Porto, he sat separate from our table *but still beside me* and happily blogging about his latest movie hahahaha.. And, we sat at outside area, near the Tribeca.

Sourdough bread, European Cheese, Arugula/Rocket, tomato, scramble egg, caramelized onion, hanging tender beef & dressing.

I didn’t try this menu, but my hubby said that it was very delicious. The hanging tender beef was luscious, succulent and tender enough. They said it’s favourite! No wonder my hubby loved it. “Melt in your mouth!” he said with happy face.

IMG_3971 IMG_3972

Scramble Egg 59k

Sourdough bread, scramble eggs, sea salt butter, with balsamic fruits salad.

Never got bored with egg. Scramble eggs, especially. Not a fan of sourdough, so yeah I just ate the scramble eggs. The sea salt butter was too salty for me. But I love their balsamic fruits salad. Different taste with any other salad.

IMG_3965 IMG_3966

IMG_3973 IMG_3985

Chocolate Banana Mozzarella

It’s a new drink, I guess. Everybody loves it, except me. Well, I love the chocolate and the mozzarella, but I didn’t like the banana. It’s not sweet and a little bit bitter. I hope next time it will be better.

Thank you Porto Bistreau for the lovely breakfast. We’ll do it again next time ya. 🙂

Gyoza Bar Tribeca Central Park Mall Jakarta

October 9th, 2016. It’s always happy to hear about new place. I knew that they will be a new restaurant in Central Park Mall. I kinda waited for them to inform me about the opening. One day, I got their email. Yaaaay, finally. And funny thing, Darius at the same time told me about this place. He really wanted to go there. So, why don’t we go there together? Gyoza Bar.

IMG_8157

MIDTOWN GROUP is Proud to announce the opening of GYOZA BAR, a Modern Japanese Fusion specializing in Gyoza and Japanese style Cocktails – The first of its kind in Indonesia.

IMG_8159

Located at Tribeca in Central Park Mall, GYOZA BAR was conceptualized by two best friends – Chef Sambas (MIDTOWN CORPORATE CHEF) and Chef Andy Ho (GYOZA BAR’s EXECUTIVE CHEF), both of whom have had more than 15 years of successful careers in various award winning restaurants in North America, such as À L’Os (Montreal), L’Atelier (Montreal), Morimoto (Philadelphia) and Yoshimoto (New Jersey).

It’s a unique place because they called it bar, but it’s more like a cheerful place. For me, Bar usually dark and mysterious. But this bar, is very cute with swing chair, colourful murals, adorable pillows, etc. Well, maybe, they wanna be different from any other bars. 🙂

IMG_8158 IMG_8165 IMG_8166 IMG_8167 IMG_8161 IMG_8164 IMG_8162 IMG_8163 SAM_6023 IMG_8168 SAM_6025

GYOZA BAR aims to introduce the Japanese custom of pairing Japanese Whisky or Sake with Gyoza in an idealic, relaxing and homey setting. Our specialty and authentic Gyozas will include Mexican Spicy Chicken, Chicken Truffle, Salmon gyoza, Shrimp, Vegetarian and Classic Pork Gyoza, Modern Tamagoyaki and Comforting Made House of Sushi.

Gyoza-Nova 65k

6 pcs gyoza mixed between pan grilled chicken gyoza and chicken truffle, topped with spicy mayo, mozzarella, jalapeno and tobiko

It’s one of the best gyoza I’ve ever tried. Soft and fluffy with a little hint of crispy texture. Full of flavour and very well-seasoned.

IMG_8171 IMG_8186

Tori Karaage 39k

Japanese style fried chicken

IMG_8173

Tori Corn Pottage 29k

Creamy Japanese Chicken corn soup with green tea oil

Love it. It’s creamy, sweet and very thick. It’s maybe too thick and too creamy, but it’s okay for me. Served with fried breadstick, you should dip it into the soup while it’s hot. Delicious.

Pottage is a thick soup or stew made by boiling vegetables, grains, and, if available, meat or fish. It was a staple food from neolithic times to the Middle Ages.

IMG_8176

Gyoza Bar Roll 85k

Shrimp tempura, cucumber, spicy aioli, scallions, avocado with mentai salmon on it

Everything with mentai is the best. So, should I say more? Crunchy texture. Not too big size, so you could swallow it without hesitation whether it will fit to your mouth or not hahahahaha. Recommended!

Aioli or aïoli is a Mediterranean sauce made of garlic and olive oil and, in some regions other emulsifiers such as egg.

IMG_8179

Bao Bun 30k

Braised pork belly with our homemade bun

Fluffy bun with sweet pork belly. But I prefer they make it more interesting in the presentation.The pork belly is too small. Huft. Let’s make it bigger LOL. But, the taste was superb.

IMG_8174

Sumo Salad 56k

Combine chicken with romaine lettuce, carrot, corn, cabbage and ginger soy dressing

IMG_8181

Beef Kimchi Nabe 65k

Thin sliced beef hotpot with homemade kimchi

When I saw this one, I thought it will be super spicy. Turned out, it’s quite flavourless. I think it needed more spices. Too bad, because I put so much hope to this one. It’s really a promising dish. We told the chef, and he thanked us for being honest. He will review this dish later.

IMG_8175

911 Yaki Soba 65k

Stirred ramen noodle with shrimp and little bit taste of hell

Super spicy. I tried a little bit, and gave up. Hahahahaha.

IMG_8182

Spam Me Baked Rice 65k

Spam, cheese, corn, edamame, egg and rice

My most favourite. Tasty, savoury, delectable, heavenly, appetizing, luscious, and everything with the same meaning of delicious. Combination of spam, cheese, egg, rice. OMG! I was very happy. It will be on my list for my next visit. It was richly spiced and flavorful. Most recommended!

IMG_8184

Silky Tofu 39k

Homemade almond flavoured tofu with caramel sauce

I thought it will be super smooth like a pudding. Turned out it’s like jelly. It’s good because it’s not super sweet. Very nice for someone who wanna reduce overly sweet dessert.

IMG_8195

Black Sesame Bread Pudding 55k

Black gamma (sesame seeds) covered bread pudding

De-li-ci-ous. It’s not overly sweet. Perfect texture. We loved it!! The aroma of black sesame is addicting. The additional meringue was a genius touch. Yes, because I love meringue!! LOL! Super duper recommended!

IMG_8193

Japanese Farmer 90k

Dry gin, Orange curacao, Earl Grey syrup, Orgeat syrup, Fresh lemon juice, Aromatic Bitter, Tonic

Love it. Gin and Tonic never failed me.

Song Fa Bak Kut Teh at Central Park Mall Jakarta

July 14th, 2015. July 25th, 2015. I went twice to Song Fa Bak Kut Teh. Different outlets. First, at Central Park Mall. Second, at Pantai Indah Kapuk. So, how should I do the review? Hmm..  Ok, I will show you the outlet at Pantai Indah Kapuk because it’s the first outlet. Then after that, outlet at Central Park Mall. 🙂 Btw, I knew Song Fa from Singapore. I always went to Singapore to eat Song Fa because it’s the best bak kut teh in Singapore, so far, for me. And they opened last year in Jakarta. I was invited on their first opening, but it’s too far from my home, so I waited a year to try the place. LOL. And good thing about that, I didn’t need to queue for too long when I had my lunch or dinner there.

PIK OUTLET

Their first outlet was amazing. It reminded me of the Singapore’s outlets. They had beautiful lamps and flowers. A very comfortable place to eat Bak Kut Teh. Located on the 1st floor of Ozone Mall, it was very eye-catching with the wooden furnitures and beautiful lamps. They had indoor and outdoor seats.

IMG_6398 IMG_6390 IMG_6389

CP OUTLET

The outlet in Central Park was more like a modern restaurant. They had indoor, semi outdoor and outdoor seats. I prefer the PIK outlet because it reminded me to their Singapore’s outlet at New Bridge Road, Singapore. Ugh, I miss the place. LOL.

IMG_6017 IMG_6020 IMG_6019 IMG_6021 IMG_6018 IMG_6016

The Menu

IMG_6030 IMG_6014

Pork Ribs Soup 68k/88k

This was my favourite. In Singapore, in PIK, in CP, I always ordered this menu. Pork Ribs Soup with rice and dough fritters. Hmm.. drooling!! The pork ribs were so tender and juicy. The soup was tasty. Clear yet rich. Love it. But, I didn’t like the rice in CP outlet. Too fragrant for a rice. I prefer in PIK outlet. And the soup in PIK outlet was more peppery than in CP outlet. And I loved it when the staffs continually offered to add the soup for free. Yaaaay.. I love free stuffs. LOL. Btw, you should dip the dough fritters into the soup. It was super delicious.

IMG_6396 IMG_6397 IMG_6031 IMG_6033

Pig’s Stomach Soup 55k/72k

This was my friend’s order. I didn’t try it. So, I had no idea how’s the taste. But my friend said to me that it was delicious.

IMG_6024

Mee Sua Plain 15k

This was also my friend’s order. I tried and for me this was quite delicious. The texture was great. Reminded me of my mom’s mee sua. My family had tradition every birthday should eat mee sua. 🙂

IMG_6027

Again, I was so happy that Song Fa opened in Jakarta, finally. I don’t need to fly to Singapore only for this Bak Kut Teh LOL. Keep up the good job, Song Fa. See you again, soon.
