MISE Jakarta at Bo Concept Building Wahid Hasyim Menteng Jakarta

November 10th, 2017. Someone told me about MISE. So, I stalked their IG account since September. They said, “We will open around October.” Yaaaaay. Then, I forgot about them. LOL. Pardon my brain. Hahaha. Mid October, “You open yet? You open yet? You open yet?” Wow, they were very patient with me. November 5th, they replied me, “Yes, we will have soft opening for INVITATION only.” And they sent me the invitation. YAAAAAY!

The establishment occupied the second level of Bo Concept Building. It’s very easy to find. Use your maps or waze, and voilà. The place isn’t very spacious but very lovely. Classic ambiance caught my eyes right away. And my favourite thing was the hanging light, or you can say minimalist chandelier? LOL.

MISECRET of Lemon, Lime & Bitter

Lavender 55k

I loved this one, sweet flavour with fresh texture. And it’s purple! LOL.

Cardamom 55k

Funny thing, I didn’t like this drink, but my hubby prefer this one rather than the lavender hahahaha.. So, it’s a match, right? I enjoyed the lavender and he enjoyed this cardamom. LOL.

Floss Gyutan Salad 80k

Fish Crumble | Wakame | Horenzo | Ginger Vinaigrette

Wow! Salad with gyutan. Wow! It was really good, my hubby told me that he wanted to finish it. And, yes, he never liked salad. It was that good! The gyutan was tender and juicy. The wakame and horenzo were so fresh, it didn’t feel like we ate vegetables. *hmmmm*

Duck Pai Tee 80k

Pulled Duck | Burdock Salad | Truffle Pomme Puree

My hubby ate this one first, and he said, “OMG! It’s so good!” And I couldn’t agree more. When the truffle pomme puree burst in your mouth, you will feell foodgasm right away! The pulled duck was delicious also. Loved the pai tee.

Pie Tee is a thin and crispy pastry tart shell kuih filled with a spicy, sweet mixture of thinly sliced vegetables and prawns. It is a popular Peranakan dish. The shells are made of flour and though some stores will make them from scratch, they can usually be found ready made in most supermarkets. Similar to popiah, the main filling is shredded Chinese turnips and carrots, and usually these two dishes are sold by the same stall in hawker centres.

‘Lado Mudo’ Pai Tee 105k

Escargot | Pacri Pineapple

I found the escargot a little bit chewy. It’s spicy, so my hubby didn’t try it at all. They put a small bite of shrimp in it. Such a nice boost in the pai tee. I didn’t really fond of the pacri pineapple. But if you like pineapple in a dish, you’ll find it interesting.

‘Boca de Dragon’ pasta 100k

Angel Hair | Tuna Tataki | Signature Sambal

Beautiful presentation. I couldn’t stop taking photos of the dish. It’s cold when I finally tried it hahahaha. Hubby didn’t wanna try the dish since it was full of sambal. LOL. I think it’s similar with sambal matah. Tasted like sambal matah, actually, but I didn’t really ask them. Love the texture of the tuna tataki. It must be cooked outside and raw inside. What a lovely texture. The angel hair was a little bit al dente texture, but I still loved it.

IMG_7791 IMG_7792 IMG_7793

Saw’s Butter Burger 110k

Hand Pick Beef Patty | Caramelised Miso Onion | Salsa Rosa

Juicy and tender beef patty with delicious salsa rosa sauce. The texture of the bun was perfect. But, I wasn’t in a mood for burger, so I let hubby to finish it. I prepared my tummy for their other dishes. LOL.

IMG_7796 IMG_7797 IMG_7799 IMG_7800

Greiggy’s Signature Duck half 150k

Crispy Duck | Chef’s Rice | Trio Sambal | Lawar of Balinese Salad

When it came to our table, I thought, “It looks dry! Hmmm..” But when hubby ate it, he said to me, “OMG! It’s soooo tender and juicy and delicious.” Hahahaha.. I was told that the chef was from a familiar restaurant. And she was very good in this kind of dish. COOL! Trust me, you must try this one when you come to MISE. Super recommended! *pssst don’t forget to ask for extra lawar.. superb!*

IMG_7801 IMG_7803 IMG_7802

Prawn Laksa 110k

Prawn | Udon | Laksa Emulsion

For me, it’s the best Prawn Laksa so far! And I wasn’t exaggerating. Truly my honest opinion. The broth was well-seasoned with rich texture. The udon was soft. Such a winner! My hubby didn’t try it at all. So, I planned to finish it half portion, since it must be too much if I ate one full bowl, right? At the end, it was empty. *sigh* I was crazy about it, I didn’t leave anything in the bowl. LOL.

IMG_7804 IMG_7805 IMG_7806 IMG_7807 IMG_7811

Avocado Texture 80k

Avocado Espuma | Coral Sponge | Chocolate Soil | Dulcey De Leche

I never liked avocado, so it must be unfair for them to let me review this one. LOL. Well, I tried a bite, and I think it’s quite delish. If you like avocado,  you should try it. 🙂

Mendjangan at Kemang Jakarta

September 8th, 2017. I knew about Mendjangan from Billy’s IG. Apparently, they hired Billy to be their opening team. Great job, Bil! So, when they opened, I took the time to stop by. It was very easy for me to find the place. Just looked for flower boards all over the area.

IMG_4444

Located at Kemang Raya street, it’s previously a house, now a restaurant with gorgeous interior and lovely pool. When I came in, I was stunned. Their facade is totally beautiful. They also have a coffee bar. I believe that they’re very serious with their coffee. Then, after their dining area, you can go to outdoor area for smoking. And you also can go to another outdoor area to see their swimming pool. It must be fun, right? You can bring your kids and your family. Lunch with a pool view. Amazing.

So, the day was actually for “Tumpengan.” It’s a happy moment. They prepared their signature food for us. And they were all delicious. I forgot the name, so I just put the photos below. LOL.

Congratulations again Mendjangan. Wish you all the best.

Ada Dining at Ruko Golden 8 Gading Serpong Tangerang

June 27th, 2017. Before our staycation at Gading Serpong, we drove around to find a nice place to have our lunch. Then I remember that Ada Dining opened 11am today. So I directed my hubby to the place.

IMG_0601

Ada Dining opened 1 month ago. I knew about the opening, but since it’s far away from my place, I couldn’t come sooner. So when I got a chance to stay at Gading Serpong, I asked my hubby to visit the place. It’s a really nice place. Simple decoration with black and white seat. When we arrived, a friendly face greeted us. It’s the owner and also the chef. I knew that we were in good hands, after I saw knives at the kitchen hahaha..

Iced Milk Tea 25k

It’s a little bit watery. Maybe because I asked for less coffee.

Hamburg Steak 45k

#mashed potato #beef patty #sunny side up #gravy

Love the texture of the mashed potato and the beef patty. And of course the perfect sunny side up! OMG! But, I told them that the gravy was a little bit bland. Just a little bit. It’s ok for me, since I didn’t eat salty food since a long time ago. But maybe for some people, they need to put a little seasonings. Maybe. LOL. I think I need more mashed potato haahhahaa..

IMG_0614 IMG_0615 IMG_0621 IMG_0622

Bulgogi-Bap 45k

#bulgogi on rice #sunny side up

This was my hubby’s order. It’s rice with bulgogi on top and sunny side up. Dayum! The bulgogi was tender and juicy. Well-seasoned and flavourful. I will order this one again when I come back to this place. Addictive and super duper recommended. Trust me! No lebay! LOL.

Congrats Ada Dining. Hope we’ll meet again soon.

[BOGOR] Two Stories at Padjajaran Baranangsiang Bogor

February 22nd, 2017. Another famous place in Bogor. I heard about them not long ago, and shocked that it’s opened around 3 years since 2014. Well, finally had a chance to visit the place. We’re already full but we managed to finish our cafe hopping before went to Suryakencana area for pork dish hahaha. So, yeah, we stopped by at this place. Two Stories.

A connected events presented in a sequence of words constructs a story. A good story brings us an enchanting experience that take us to a creative journey that leads us to more stories. There are always two sides of every story in the story of life that is connected to each other. They create an eternal balance. We believe that there are always realities and fantasies in a story. The two sides will collide creating an amazing realm.

Two Stories collaborates art deco and post-modern interior design. They have two design styles, different on each floor. I love the first floor with the cute rabbits murals. But I love the second floor even more. Creating a unique culinary experience. The third floor is a closed area. Say no more, just enjoy my simple review below with photos.

Orange Blush 29k

Sausage in A Blanket 35k

Sausage wrapped in puff pastry rolls

At first, I told Ivan, “If we’re too full, we take away the leftovers, ok?” He couldn’t agree more, of course. But, they didn’t give us a chance to take away the dish. OMG! It’s too scrumptious! We couldn’t stop hahaha.. The puff pastry was perfect.  Those thin delicate layers. And the sausage was well-seasoned. Crumbly texture with juicy and good flavour. Recommended!

IMG_3874 IMG_3877

Toffee Raisin Nut 39k

Sweet puff pastry topped with homemade rum raisin cream and nuts

Another dish with puff pastry. Dessert time. Thin layers of happiness. Melt in your mouth. Buttery, sweet, and without a doubt, addicting! I planned to finish only the rum raisin cream, but turned out, we finished it in a sudden. Another recommended dish. *drooling right now*
