METRO Coffee Bar etc at Tanjung Karang Thamrin Jakarta

May 16th, 2017. I knew this place from Hans. He told me a long time ago. But I didn’t have a chance to visit the place with him. So, when a friend asked me to join her to visit the place, I immediately agreed. Yaaay finally I could visit METRO Coffee Bar etc.

IMG_8057

Located in Tanjung Karang, not far from Thamrin street, METRO looks so comfortable from the facade. The outdoor area was lovely. But when I came inside, I was a little bit disappointed. The right area was fantastic with the sofa and colourful pillow. The left area, near kitchen area, not so much impressive to me. Well, maybe it’s too dark, for me. Or maybe was it because they’re having video shooting at the time? It looked so messy. Well, I think I need to come again hahaha.. Ok lah, I will come again next time with no expectation. LOL. But now, please enjoy my simple review.

Piccolo 24k

I didn’t try this piccolo. But my friend gave me a frown. Well, hmm..

Cafe Latte 28k

Love the presentation, although my friend said that usually coffee shop served it coffee cube with milk, not the other way around. LOL. It’s quite good, for me, since I told them to lower the acidic of the coffee. But I have to add the simple syrup to make it sweeter. Too bitter for me.

IMG_8072 IMG_8080

Pisang Goreng 30k

Love the fried banana. It’s very sweet with perfect texture. The chocolate sauce enhanced the flavour of it. But next time I wanna try their savoury food, instead of their snacks or desserts. Anyone wanna come with me?

Lewis and Carroll Flower Market at Central Grand Indonesia Thamrin Jakarta

June 12th, 2017. I knew about Lewis and Carroll new outlet from @eatandtreats 🙂 They opened at Central Department Store in Grand Indonesia East Mall. Collaborated with Summer Petals by Atelier Fleuri, they called the place: Lewis and Carroll Flower Market. It was very beautiful. I couldn’t stop taking photos.

IMG_9196

Lewis and Carroll’s first outlet amazed me with the beautiful ambiance and very spacious space. This new outlet amazed me with the concept. I think it’s the first tea house collaborating with flower market in Jakarta. CMIIW. Like I said before, I couldn’t stop taking photos. Those beautiful flowers. I felt like I was in a beautiful garden, not in a tea house. I will share my photos to you, my lovely readers.

Those lovely flowers are made to be admired. I wanted to grab the flowers and brought it home. Too bad I don’t have cold-handed for flowers. So I prefer just stand there and enjoyed the beauty of the flowers. And took photos for my blog. Hope you enjoy those photos.

another recommendation for desserts at lewis and carroll. it’s their newest cake. it’s a combination of ananas tart and kaasstengels. and it’s an amazing mash-up cake. i love the pineapple jam and the cheese cream they put in the cake. generous fillings. the texture of the cake was also beyond compare. super duper recommended. it’s a must-try cake there. trust me.

[EVENT] Ramadan Kareem Festivity at Sana Sini by Pullman Jakarta Indonesia

May 28th, 2017. It’s been so long since I went to Sana Sini by Pullman Jakarta Indonesia. Finally *woot woot* a week before, they invited me to celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan. So I visited Sana Sini Restaurant with hubby. We ordered online car *yeah their parking area was never our favourite* and we were so excited with the welcome Tanoura Dance. LOL.

IMG_8820

Hotel Pullman Jakarta’s restaurant, Sana Sini, features the anticipated return of Lebanese Guest Chef Zein Rahhal behind the kitchen. Welcoming the guests in a sumptuous Lebanese-inspired cuisine with Egyptian Tanoura Dance Performance highlight the Holy Month. Tanoura is the Egyptian-influenced sufi dance distinguished by the use of a multicolored skirt. The entertainers are scheduled to perform on weeknights. Sana Sini transformed into an Middle Eastern Souq with colored silks, antique lanterns and exquisite buffet. And they still amazed me with many variants on the buffet.

IMG_8852 IMG_8850 IMG_8851 IMG_8859

Executive Chef Cameron Chef prepares the signature dishes and guests’ favorites at Sana Sini. After a successful collaboration with Chef Zein in 2016, he will be back by popular demand to bring guests to a culinary pilgrimage to Middle East with trademark dishes such as Lamb Ouzi, Chicken and Beef Shawarma, Fish Harrah, and the famous Baklava. In addition to the popular buffet menus, guests cannot miss the Middle-Eastern and Indonesian-inspired thirst quenching beverages such as Turkish Coffee, Bajigur, Es Campur and the Ramadan Tower Mocktail. Guests dining at Sana Sini enjoy complimentary sweet Ta’jil selection, served with coffee or tea. During the Holy Month, Sana Sini Restaurant will also be open for lunch service with power lunch set menus on offer.

Senyum Indonesia at Teluk Betung Thamrin Jakarta

May 16th, 2017. I planned to visit Senyum since Cindy told me about this new place. But since Cindy isn’t working in Thamrin area, it’s a little bit hard to make an appointment with her LOL. So, when Lisha asked me to visit the place with her, I told Cindy about it, and Cindy said, “Go ahead, you go first, tell me about it later.” Yaaaay.

IMG_8039

It’s 11:15 when we made a lunch date, then I ordered online car. I got there first. I was stunned with the place. It’s very comfortable. Cold AC, friendly gesture from the people there, and beautiful paintings everywhere. They told me that they’re selling batik too on 2nd floor. And now please enjoy my photos and simple review

IMG_8049

Nasi Ayam Betutu, Bali 75k

White rice, with betutu chicken. Served with spicy tuna, lawar, telur pindang, sate lilit and sambal matah.

IMG_8050 IMG_8051 IMG_8052

Nasi Padang Rendang 75k

Served with kalio broth, daun ubi, green chili and Padang crackers.

IMG_8054 IMG_8055 IMG_8056

I didn't try the Nasi Bali since it's spicy.
I only ate the Nasi Padang. And for me, it's just okay.
The rendang beef was a little bit dry.
They said, that's how they cook the rendang beef.
A little bit different, of course. Every place has its own habits, I guess.

Anyway, congratulations Senyum for the opening. I will be back soon to try other dishes.

Tim Ho Wan at Grand Indonesia West Mall Thamrin Jakarta

December 5th, 2016. Whoaaaaa it’s been so long since I went to Tim Ho Wan with my high school friends. That time was also my first time there. I arrived there around 10:30, waited for those ladies. Then, they came. Yaaaaay. We talked, laughed, and gossiped!

IMG_0537

Located on LG floor at Grand Indonesia, Tim Ho Wan occupied at a corner area. It’s not difficult to find it, since it’s quite spacious with big logo in the facade. Dominated with green colour, Tim Ho Wan came from Hong Kong. And this was their second outlet in Jakarta.

Although, my friend loved their Fried Milk Custard.
Well, for me, I prefer they make it softer texture.
Anyway, I will be back for their Baked Bun BBQ Pork.
DAYUM!
