Torico (Emporium Pluit Mall, Jakarta)

by 1:44:00 PM

Emporium Pluit Mall is currently having tenant transition, there are various of new restaurants opening their outlet here substituting the old restaurant who decided to close their outlet. Coincidentally, I was craving for noodle that day and I was contemplating a lot whether to try Menya Sakura Ramen or Torico (both are new restaurants at Emporium Pluit Mall), but finally I decided to try Torico as they claim that Japanese Noodle and Rice are their specialties. The restaurant itself is not really hard to find, I bet you won't have any difficulties in finding this restaurant.

Popolamama (Mall Taman Anggrek, Jakarta)

by 6:49:00 PM

It's been a long time since I have gone to Mall Taman Anggrek and I could see there were many new restaurants have opened their outlet here. Having heard about this restaurant before, we decided to have a dinner at Popolamama. The restaurant is located on the fourth floor, exactly next to Sticky and if I'm not mistaken, the place was once occupied by Ajisen Ramen. Popolamama is an Italian restaurant originated from Japan, and it has specialty in serving Italian Fresh Pasta & Homemade Pizza.

Mama Malaka (Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, Jakarta)

by 9:01:00 PM

Grand Indonesia Shopping Town is one of the largest malls in Jakarta and it's always packed with people especially on weekends. Not a big fan of crowded restaurant, I searched for a calmer and less crowded restaurant that day and my eyes went to the signage of this restaurant, Mama Malaka. Judging from the name, you can tell that this restaurant is specialized in serving peranakan cuisine. I have been craving for peranakan cuisine so much and I haven't found decent restaurant that served great peranakan cuisine in Jakarta, so I decided to give Mama Malaka a try!

Crematology Coffee Roasters (Senopati, Jakarta)

by 6:17:00 PM

Last weekend, I was invited by Zomato to attend an event called "Zomato Foodie Meetup" at a coffee shop named Crematology Coffee Roasters in Senopati area, which is well-known as popular dining spot in South Jakarta. Crematology Coffee Roasters is a coffee shop owned by Mr. Elliot Davernas. The owner was there at that time and he was sharing his interesting story and journey until he decided to open coffee shop in Indonesia named Crematology Coffee Roasters. The coffee shop itself is a little bit hard to find, you have to pay full attention to see the signage of this coffee shop.

Hans & Belle (Puri Indah Mall, Jakarta)

by 7:31:00 PM

(Do you like teddy bear?)

If yes, then you really have to visit this uber cute cafe which is located at Puri Indah Mall, Hans & Belle. You will find a lot of cute stuffs and teddy bears here, there are some sitting on the chair, some hanging on the ceiling and some are trapped on the display. I went to Puri Indah Mall with my family to find a nice place to hangout that day and because we already had our dinner before, we decided to pay a visit to this cafe only to try their desserts and beverages (at first), but we ended up ordering some side dishes. (I just can't stop eating recently!) The cafe itself is not really hard to find, especially with those bright signage and cute interior, it is located near the food court area at Puri Indah Mall.

Djournal Coffee

Djournal Coffee is a coffee shop managed by Ismaya group, it has 3 branches which are located in Cilandak Town Square, Puri Indah Mall and Grand Indonesia. I went to the one at Grand Indonesia and I was quite surprised to find out that the coffee shop was super packed with people. (I even saw some people were waiting because the place was full at that time) Nevertheless, I still decided to give this coffee shop a try. Djournal Coffee is located on Ground Floor of Grand Indonesia Shopping Town and I reckon you won't have any difficulties in finding this coffee shop.

Bunga Rampai (Menteng, Jakarta)

by 8:34:00 PM

Last weekend probably one of the most memorable weekends that I ever had, because I got a chance to meet up with one of famous foodies and food bloggers, Ms. Daisy from Food Escape. So, we decided to meet up at Bunga Rampai restaurant in Menteng area because I had my previous appointment near Menteng area. (thanks Ms. Daisy for being so considerate!)

The restaurant looks like a huge Dutch colonial house from outside and once I went in to the restaurant, I literally was amazed by the grand interior and luxurious decoration. (you will know it once you see the pictures of interior later!) Oh and I have to tell you beforehand that this post will be loaded with a lot of photos! (especially interior and decoration photos) The restaurant itself is quite hard to find because it looks like a normal house, but if you pay more attention, you can see the clear signage of the restaurant.

Sumo Sushi (Menteng, Jakarta)

by 8:22:00 PM

So, I have been invited by Zomato to have a small gathering at Sumo Sushi Menteng that day. Honestly, I rarely go to Menteng area and I never thought there is a place called Menteng Central. Menteng Central is like a small plaza, there are several restaurants and store here and one of them is a Japanese Restaurant that I'm going to review which is Sumo Sushi.  The restaurant is not really hard to find, it is located near the escalator on the Ground Floor.

Carnivor Barbecue Specialist (Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta)

by 9:23:00 AM

It's holiday and it's time to meet up with friends to chit-chat and eat a great food. That day, we decided to go to Pantai Indah Kapuk which is well-known as one of the famous dining spot in North Jakarta. We decided to have a good lunch at Carnivor that day, actually we have already planned to go to another restaurant but since the restaurant is closed due to Eid-al-Fitr holiday, we changed our plan and decided on Carnivor. Located near the super crowded Sumoboo!, I bet you won't have any difficulties in finding the restaurant.

Hot Star (Baywalk Mall @ Green Bay Pluit, Jakarta)

by 12:53:00 PM

Once in a year, Jakarta will always experience the effects of Eid al-Fitr Holiday. (if you know what I mean) Sometimes, I think it is nice to spend holiday in Jakarta during Eid al-Fitr Holiday, because Jakarta is really quiet and free from traffic jam during this time. However (and sadly), those effects are not applicable to shopping malls, most shopping malls in Jakarta will be crowded and packed with people who search for food during this time. Because most traditional markets are closed during this time and most housemaids are going back to their hometown, so you could expect to see many people who decided to eat out at shopping malls during this time.

So, me and my family decided to eat out on that day, but most restaurants were fully packed with people and we decided to have snacks as our dinner at Hot Star, which coincidentally was not really crowded that day.

Daisho (Mall @ Alam Sutera, Tangerang)

by 6:47:00 PM

(Ohayou Gozaimasu! Konnichiwa!)

It has been a while since my last visit to Mall @ Alam Sutera, and I decided to visit this large shopping mall again last week with my parents. Mall @ Alam Sutera can be considered as one of the largest malls in Alam Sutera and the mall got more crowded compared to my last visit here, but it was still spacey and nice. So, it was lunch time and we were confused about what to eat for lunch that day (because there are many selections of restaurant here!), after looking around for a while, I finally decided to try this Japanese Restaurant called Daisho with my parents.
