Union PIK Avenue at PIK Avenue Mall Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

September 16th, 2017. Hooraaay!! People in North Jakarta no need to travel far to go to Union. Union finally opened at PIK Avenue Mall. I could hear those people outcried on the first day of the opening. Hahaha..

As usual, Union was always a favourite. I came with hubby since we were in the middle of our staycation at airport area. It’s not far from PIK Avenue, definitely. The place was no different from the previous outlets. Spacious. Lovely. Cosy.

Es Kopi Lokal

Definitely a keeper. The old school mug gave me some good creep. Well, it tasted sooooo good. I think it’s one of the best. The milky texture mixed perfectly with the light coffee. Great job Union!

Corn Latte

It was surprisingly good. The flavour of the corn was quite strong. But, the uncommonly marriage between corn and latte, it was definitely love. *sparkling eyes*

The Truffle Kway Teow was soooooo truffle!
The Pork Belly was crispy and also tender.
Nasi Babi Garing was also good, but not really my favourite.
It was too crunchy, I guess.
The Pork Chop delicious, but I didn't like the apple.
Chilli Crab Spaghetti was unique and I loved the texture of the spaghetti.
It's not too spicy, well-seasoned.
5 dishes, and my favourite were truffle kway teow and crispy pork belly.
Those two were delicious and memorable. Super recommended!

Ube Velvet Cake 66k

Cotton Candy Es Merah Delima 55k

It was very particular with sweet taste of cotton candy and es merah delima. Dabest!
Funny thing, I still prefer their Red Velvet rather than their Ube Velvet.

Thank you Union for the lovely lunch. We will be back super soon.

Kibo The Molten Cheese Cake at PIK Avenue Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

July 3rd, 2017. I went to Kibo The Molten Cheese Cake after lunch with sister and nephews. A month before, I went to PIK Avenue and found this Kibo, but I didn’t know what to buy so I went home without Kibo. That’s why when my sister wanted to visit Kibo, I agreed right off the bat.

IMG_1103

What can be better than cheese cake with a delicious MOLTEN filling that melts in your mouth? The highly appreciated and popular ‘MOLTEN’ cheese cake has 3 layers of soft souffle that has delicate melting texture of 5 type of cheeses, rich molten premium cheese cream , and moist buttery sponge.

Located in Foodtown Dotonburi level 2, Kibo occupied a small area in the middle of the food court. I could imagine how crowded the place when everybody queued for the delicious cheese cake.

IMG_1105 IMG_1104 IMG_1108 IMG_1110 IMG_1107 IMG_1109 IMG_1111 IMG_1112 IMG_1118 IMG_1119 IMG_1120 IMG_1113 IMG_1114

Original Molten Kibo Mini 30k

Ok. This is the best. Say no more. I just tried a bite, and my heart melted. Just like the filling of this original molten kibo mini. They have this delightful crunchy below the cake that make them different from any other cheese cake. Surely one recommended cheese cake. Please open near my living area soon. Pretty please!!! I heard they will open in Grand Indonesia and Kota Kasablanka. *praying hard*

IMG_1116

Choco Cheese Kino Mini 35k

Choco and Cheese. Actually not every combination of those two will make me happy. But this time, it blew my mind. Sweet and creamy. Fantastic. But I prefer the original one, of course. For those choco cheese lovers, you will agree with me that this will knock you over. The fluffy texture and the particular flavour. Dazzling!

Cannot wait to hear from you when you open in GI or Kokas. Please hurry!

Bo & Bun Asian Eatery at Ruko Garden House Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK Jakarta

July 3rd, 2017. I heard about Bo & Bun since they opened in Jakarta. It’s actually a Vietnamese cuisine opened in Bali 3 years ago. Then they opened their second branch in Jakarta.

I went to Bo & Bun with my sister and my two nephews. We were having fun at the day, since she didn’t go to office hahaha. I told her that I wanted to try Bo & Bun and they were all agree. Yaaaaay, first timer. Well, the place was nice. But, I didn’t find it a thematic one. Just an ordinary restaurant.

Bao Gao Pork Belly 65k (2 pcs)

Twice cooked pork belly on steamed buns with crushed peanuts, pickled cucumbers, hoisin sauce, fresh coriander and chilli.

We chose this one for starter. Actually I saw it at Hans’ blog hahahaha.. Totally drooling when I saw the photo. And we’re very happy with the flavour. I really love the texture of the bun. So soft and fluffy. What about the pork belly? It’s tender and juicy. It’s one of their signature dish.

IMG_1075 IMG_1076

Thai Fish Cakes 55k ( 4 pcs)

Pounded red Snapper fillets, kaffir lime leaves, snake beans, red curry paste, and Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce.

It’s flavour and well-seasoned. A little bit chewy on the texture. But, I loved it! Well, a good thai fish cakes must be well-seasoned and have firm, bouncy texture.

IMG_1077 IMG_1078

The 12 Hour Pho 90k (limited daily supply)

Beef broth, sliced tenderloin, sliced beef shanks, beef meatballs, rice noodles, coriander stems, sliced onions, side of fresh bean sprouts, chili, Thai basil and lime.

Saw this on Hans’ blog also. LOL. Yes, I am one of his biggest fans. Well, the presentation was very beautiful. Pho is one of must-try dish in Vietnamese cuisine. For a 12-hours-cooked pho, this one was very flavourful, and the key to the Vietnamese noodle soup pho is in the broth. The meat was tender and juicy. Recommended!

Thank you Bo & Bun for making our day a delicious one. Yippy!!

The Fat Pig at Ruko Crown Golf PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

August 13th, 2017. I saw The Fat Pig accidentally as I passed the Ruko Crown Golf area to go to one of the cafes there. It’s time for me to eat, so I asked my hubby to visit the place. Turned out it used to be a different cafe that we have visited earlier. The Fat Pig just opened on August 3rd, 2017. Hooraaaaay. Said my joyful tummy. Hahahahaha.

IMG_3098

Since I knew the place, it’s totally familiar. Not many different from the previous tenant, it’s comfortable for lunch or dinner. Love the pigs display on the wall. So cute to see so many pigs LOL. I really love the situation in the front area. Big windows with bright light. It’s very good for me to capture a great photos. So, guys, for those bright-light hunters, come come come.

So happy to find a not-too-expensive ice lychee tea hahahaha..

Nasi Babi Guling 55k

It’s so delicious! I was happy that finally I found my favourite nasi babi guling. The pork meat was very appetizing.  The skin was crispy, but not too hard to chew. And the satay was tasty enough for me to give fierce look to my hubby when he touched it hahaha.. I didn’t try the sambal. They said it’s so spicy LOL.

IMG_3106 IMG_3107 IMG_3108

Nasi Tiga Kombinasi Panggang 65k

My hubby didn’t wanna eat babi guling, so he ordered this nasi kombinasi. The rice consisted of roasted duck, char siew and roasted pork. Hmmm.. looks delish, right? I love the roasted duck and roasted pork. The char siew was just okay for me. I prefer the previous two. Tender meat and tasty flavour. What could go wrong with that?

IMG_3102 IMG_3103 IMG_3104 IMG_3105

Congratulations The Fat Pig for the new location in PIK. You can find their first outlet in Pluit Utara Raya 33. Hope to see many more outlets to come!

IMG_3042

Located at the road side of Pantai Indah Selatan, Coffee Passion looked just okay from the facade. There’s nothing special. It’s like any other coffee shops. The sign was big enough for you to see from across the street. But when I stepped inside, I was amazed by the beauty of it. And the serene ambiance from their playlist, love it! Funny thing, when I came in, I instantly took photos on my mind. I could imagine which corners I should captured.

My hubby’s order. It’s really good since I didn’t have to add sugar on it. It’s not too sour and not too sweet. Just a perfect lemonade. Such an eye-opener.

Cafe Latte 35k

The cowboy barista *yes he looked like a cowboy with the hat LOL reminded me of Chicco Jerikho in the original FilKop Movie* told me that for less coffee drink, I should order cafe latte. So I ordered the cafe latte. And it was delicious. It’s just perfect for my taste bud. Not too bitter, not too creamy. Delightful cup of latte in the morning.

IMG_3055

Cold Brew Caramel 40k

I saw this one on their chiller. Then I tempted to order one. So I chose the caramel. It’s really good with the not-too-sweet flavour. I thought it will be super sweet. *dancing around the coffee shop* Well, I couldn’t finish it since I still have to go to other places. Yes, places. Still 2 or 3 more to go. *will be a tiring day*

Ground Coffee at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK Jakarta

June 24th, 2017. I was in PIK area when I saw Ground Coffee. It’s a new coffee shop. When I wanted to visit the place, we’re too tired to go, so I said to hubby to come another time. When we had a chance to visit PIK area again, my hubby was the one who remind me about this place.

IMG_0435

“Appreciate your life, with a cup of our coffee.” Saw this statement on their IG account, and I was totally agree. We should appreciate our life, and it’s as simple as drinking a cup of coffee. *suddenly I smell good aroma of coffee* The coffee shop collaborated with Totem Room Escape. It’s a petite one, but worth to visit.
