[HOTEL] Atria Hotel Gading Serpong Tangerang – Deluxe Room

September 1st, 2017 – September 3rd, 2017

The Atria Hotel Gading Serpong is a modern hotel in CBD (Central Business District) Serpong perfect for business travellers, business and leisure groups. Located just within a 25 minute drive to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, the Atria Hotel Gading Serpong allows you to enjoy a design hotel in Tangerang with wellness Artha Spa, exquisite tastes in the Mezzanine Restaurant, 11 business meetings, 24-hour reception, modern rooms and free services like wifi internet and minibar.

It’s really happy to visit another hotel that managed by Parador Hotels & Resorts. Located in Gading Serpong area, Atria Hotel occupied a very strategic location. So close to Summarecon Mall Serpong. Easy to find something to eat. LOL.

Deluxe Room

Designed with warm and pleasant colours, the 9 deluxe rooms of the Atria Hotel Gading Serpong are larger than the superior rooms, as they have 33 square metres of space and are located in the superior floors. These deluxe rooms also feature TV with international channels, safe deposit box, desk, sofa, telephone, bathroom amenities, shower, air conditioning, hairdryer, minibar, coffee maker, kettle and slippers.

It’s a spacious room. I love the way they make the room even bigger with not-so-much furnitures. But I didn’t really fond of their tiles. I prefer parquet floor or carpet. And I loved that my room is very near the swimming pool. I could hear children laughed happily. Asher was also happy when he came to the room. He walked around and around and around. Such a  spacious area for kids.

Breakfast Time

Breakfast time is always our favourite time. We loved to eat breakfast until it’s time they closed the buffet. At Atria, we loved the variants of the food. But my most favourite dish was the chocolate danish. It was super duper delicious. I couldn’t stop eating the danish. OMG! Super love!

Thank you Atria Hotel. It’s a really nice two-nites-staycation on the long weekend. Definitely addicting.

Coffee Right at Courts Megastore BSD Bumi Serpong Damai Tangerang

September 2nd, 2017. It’s always happy to visit a new coffee shop. So when I went to Coffee Right, I was very excited. It’s actually not really new, since they had their first outlet in Ruko Citra Gran Cibubur. But this second outlet was just opened a couple months ago.

IMG_4257

The owner asked me how I found out about them. Well, a chef never told anybody about his secret recipe, right? LOL. So I just smiled politely hahahaha.. Actually, I don’t really remember how I found out about this place. *wink wink* The place was very humble with not too many tables in front of the facade. It’s really a hidden gem in the gigantic area of Q-Big Mal.

IMG_4258 IMG_4259 IMG_4261 IMG_4260 IMG_4271 IMG_4265 IMG_4264 IMG_4266 IMG_4262 IMG_4263

Ice Koffie Jadoel 20k

When I saw their menu, my eyes stopped at the words Koffie Jadoel. Then I said, “That one! Yes that one. I want that one.” LOL. So possessive. Hahaha. I wanted to order cake too, but I was too full. I don’t think my tummy would be ready for something heavier than coffee. Well, the coffee was good, but definitely too strong for me. I sipped a bit, and I could feel that it’s strong. And when I drank it home, it was definitely strong. I forgot to eat before, then I drank a full glass of it. I was trembling hahahaha.. But it tasted very addictive. Super cool koffie jadoel.

Native Coffee Tribe at Sautama Apartment Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. Yaaaaay. Finally I could visit the second branch of Native Coffee Tribe at Alam Sutera. I heard the news about this one far before they opened for public. But, you know, it’s really far from my home. So, I need a little bit effort to visit Native.

IMG_4065

Located in Saumata Apartment, it’s really a lovely one. Much bigger than the previous outlet in Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK. Still with those dreamcatchers hanging all around the place. Divided into 2 areas, smoking and non-smoking area. I gave my most love to the mural of a native girl on the wall at the back.

IMG_4064 IMG_4062 IMG_4063 IMG_4061 IMG_4060 IMG_4066IMG_4055IMG_4054IMG_4051IMG_4050IMG_4052IMG_4053IMG_4059IMG_4058IMG_4057IMG_4056

Lemon Iced Tea 35k

What a fresh lemon iced tea. It’s hubby’s order. He loved it so very much. Refreshing with a perfect sour taste.

IMG_4072 IMG_4073

Ice Latte 45k

I love the presentation. A beautiful glass. I wanna bring it home hahahaha.. I didn’t add sugar to this ice latte. The milk was already sweet with its own texture and flavour. So very refreshing to the hot day in Alam Sutera.

IMG_4070 IMG_4071

Cheesess Cheesecake Kyoto White 35k

Let the cherry blossom petals drape over the green moss and the cool breeze twirl. The Kyoto I know is traditional, tranquil and crisp in very subtle ways. The paper umbrella swirls as the geisha tiptoes on her cobblestone path. Our Kyoto Cheesecake reflects this city with its subtleness and the softness for that extra souffled texture.

I really loved the appearance of the cheesecake. Very beautiful with those mouthwatering berries. A slice of happiness. The texture was overwhelming. Well, it’s Cheesess. Of course, it’s one perfect cheesecake.

IMG_4067 IMG_4068

Great job Native. Definitely a keeper.

Coarse & Fine Coffee at Ruko Renata Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. I knew Coarse & Fine from a year ago. At that time they opened only 1 floor. The 2nd floor still under renovation. A friend of mine took me there. We had fun. And I still appreciate his good gesture until now. Well, it’s been a long time since I went to Serpong with friends. Nowadays, I go to Serpong with hubby. Thanks to him, I could still review coffee shop around Serpong even though it’s very far away from my home.

IMG_4025

Everybody already enjoyed and took photos of the *new* 2nd floor, but I didn’t have the chance to visit the place, until last week. And I was very happy. The 2nd floor is very gorgeous. It’s like a spacious living room. We loved it so much. And at that moment, the floor was just for us hahaha.. Well, I’ll let the photos do the talk.

IMG_4026 IMG_4027 IMG_4028 IMG_4029 IMG_4031 IMG_4032 IMG_4033 IMG_4030 IMG_4034 IMG_4036 IMG_4037 IMG_4038 IMG_4039 IMG_4040 IMG_4045

Tamarind Soda 35k

It’s hubby’s order, but turned out I was the one who finish it hahahaha.. Too sour for hubby, I guess. I think he prefer the lemon drink 😀 Well maybe next visit. Yes, definitely have to visit the place every time I go to Alam Sutera.

IMG_4042 IMG_4047

Flat White 40k

Love the coffee. Light and had a very nice after taste. Well, I’m not a coffee expert. I just tasted my coffee like I captured my photos. With feelings. No intelligent theory hahaha.. If it made me feel good, it’s really good. Period.

Crispy Pork Belly Sambal Matah 68k

Fried tender pork belly served on rice with Balinese sambal matah.

When it came to my table, I looked at the crispy pork belly and thought, “Errr.. it looks very dry. Must be hard to chew. D*mn! It’s with sambal matah, I cannot give it to hubby. Aaaaaargh!!” Then, I tried one piece, and my heart melted. It’s crunchy and juicy and tender. Well, yes, it’s still spicy, but I couldn’t stop eat it hahaha. When one of the barista came to upstairs *yes, I was in level 2* he asked me if I wanted to drink some ice water, and I said yes right away. LOL. My hubby looked at me with sad face, “Please don’t force yourself to eat that spicy food.” I replied, “But it’s really GOOD!” He continued his blogging things and didn’t care about me anymore hahahahahaha. Super recommended.

Great job Coarse & Fine. See you soon.

Bake and Artisan Coffee & Co at Ruko De Mansion Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. I heard about this one from my sister. We actually had a date here, but she couldn’t make it, since her hubby wasn’t very well at the time. Bake and Artisan Coffee & Co occupied the first level of the place. They did all the baking and cooking upstairs.

IMG_4000

My sister told me that their coffee powered by Ombé Kofie. In fact, they put a barista from Ombé Kofie. The place is lovely. Cool AC, comfortable ambiance and of course, a very friendly gesture from the barista. We love the place. And, he introduced me to the owner. I was happy that I could visit the baking area. Always happy to smell the aroma of pastries etc.

Ice Lychee Tea 40k

IMG_4015

Regular White 35k

As usual I told the barista to make my coffee less acidic. And I love the way he told me about coffee. He’s very good at it. My coffee was light and creamy and delightful. At first, I thought that they only good at baking. Apparently, they did a good job to collaborate with Ombé Kofie.

IMG_4009

Marmer Cake 20k

It’s similar with my mom-in-law’s marmer cake. But it’s not really sweet. The size was very big hahahaha we had to push each other to finish it LOL. Love the texture, for sure. Soft and fluffy.

IMG_4011 IMG_4010

Butter Croissant (complimentary)

Thank you for the complimentary croissant. It was delicious. Love the crisp texture. And the size was just perfect. I think I can eat 5 pieces at the same time hahaha..

Again, congratulations Bake and Artisan Coffee & Co for the opening.

Kayu Kayu Restaurant by Kosenda Hotel at Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. Finally I visited Kayu Kayu Restaurant. First, I knew that this restaurant is managed by Kosenda Hotel. Second, I couldn’t wait to go there. So when I had staycation at Serpong area this weekend, I asked my hubby to have lunch there. Yaaaay.

IMG_4111

Located at the same area with Ethnicraft, Kayu Kayu dominated with wooden furnitures and lots of plants. They have 2 levels, but when I asked them, they said that the second level was designated for function room. The restaurant is very spacious. Like, very very spacious! Inside the restaurant, there’s coffee bar which called 127 Cafe. They served coffee, tea and various drinks there. I really love how they decorated the place. It’s very beautiful. You won’t get bored walking around the place.

Nasi Goreng K2 48k

Fried rice with choices of topping Roasted Duck (add 28k)

I didn’t try the fried rice, but my hubby said that it’s similar to “nasi goreng tek tek.” Well, for those who liked nasi goreng tek tek, you will love this one, then. Anyway, I tried the roasted duck, and it’s too dry for me. As a matter of fact, this fried rice came to our table very late, around an hour, in a bit cool temperature. It’s like they cooked it half hour ago, but they served to us half hour later. Great thing, they said sorry for the late food, and promise to serve better next time, since maybe it’s holiday and they didn’t have enough people at the time.

IMG_4105 IMG_4106

Laksa Peranakan 48k

Udon, beans sprout, egg, fried tofu, eggplants, with Chicken (add 20k)

This laksa came to my table also an hour later after we ordered. Good thing, it’s still warm. Tasted really delicious. Love the texture of the broth. And yes, it’s spicy. LOL. I couldn’t finish the broth, even though I wanted to do that so very much. Btw, I love the texture of the udon. Nothing beats the flavor and texture of fresh homemade udon noodles.. in a perfectly well-seasoned laksa broth.

Congratulations Kayu Kayu Restaurant. Hope to be back soon.
