APPLEBEE'S x NIBBLE - Lippo Mall Puri


We had a great food testing / food bloggers gathering event on 20 April 2016 from the collaboration between Nibble application and Applebee's Restaurant in Lippo Mall Puri. Well, there's no fancy decoration or specific event that night, but we certainly had a nice chat with fellow bloggers. The thing about food bloggers gathering is that we never know each other (personally) until we meet and say "Ahh, I followed you long time ago and now we meet in person" That happens quite many times in every food bloggers gathering. Long story shorts, there are more than 10 foods (appetizers, main courses and desserts) and 10 cocktails to try. Thanks Nibble for arranging this event.

So, let us introduce Nibble! Nibble is an Indonesian made mobile application specialized in what we call 'Food Directory' where you can find great foods with the location, the name of the food, the price, and the distance from your current location. Please check out their official website for more info http://www.nibble.online

Everytime you upload a food photo, you have to mention the name of the restaurant, the food's name and then the price, and Nibble will determine the distance of the restaurant from the readers. What's great about Nibble is that you can search for restaurants nearby! Or you can also search for specific restaurants based on the type of cuisines, the specific area / location, or by the user's name

We are honored to be one of 12 Tastemakers Spotlight that you can see on the top of the application home page! Please follow us: @JKTDelicacy and don't hesitate to like our photos :P


The first thing that we tried was this big bowl of cocktail called Strawberry Margarita. It is actually a strawberry juice mixed with tequila and some vodka which we are not familiar with the name. It was sweet and very refreshing, a nice starter :p


STEAKHOUSE COBB SALAD - IDR 149.000

Assorted salad from lettuce, corn, bacon, avocado, blue cheese crumbles and hard boiled egg. On top was USDA Choice House Sirloin with Chimichurri sauce and a dressing of your choice. That was a pretty long description, but its really fresh! Since it was really big, you can share it to 3-4 people.



PORK & SHRIMP POT STICKERS - IDR 129.000


Basically its a wonton filled with shrimp and pork then served with thai peanut and soy dumpling sauces. It was pretty good actually! Crispy on the outside and moist & juicy on the inside




FIESTA LIME CHICKEN - IDR 119.000

Grilled thick chicken fillet done in fiesta-style with zesty lime sauce, covered with jack-cheddar. Served with crispy tortilla strips, seasoned rice and freshly made pico de gallo (like tomato salsa). The chicken was perfectly cooked when we sliced it and the seasoned rice was savory.



COWBOY BURGER - IDR 149.000

This is truly a burgerporn! Quality beef patties with crispy onion strings, melted white cheddar cheese and double smoked bacon served on a toasted brioche bun. It comes with fresh lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, all served with honey BBQ sauce and french fries! What a Burger



TRIPLE HOG DARE YA

So unfortunate that we didn't get the chance to try this. But the name Triple Hog probably comes from 3 pieces of pork bacon. Served with fried onion, fresh veggie and french fries.



PROVOLONE MEATBALL LINGUINE - IDR 139.000

Linguini in alfredo sauce topped with homemade meatballs cooked in tomato sauce and sprinled with Parmesan cheese on top! The picture speaks for itself, simply a great pasta dish.




SHRIMP SCAMPI LINGUINE - IDR 139.000

A well rounded seafood linguini pasta with juicy shrimp sauteed with Applebee's scampi sauce. We loved the freshness of the shrimp and the perfect overal taste of the tomato pasta.



THAI SHRIMP SALAD

Well, we are not really sure why they called it salad, because there was actually spaghetti under the crispy wonton skin. They also put generous amount of shrimp with what so called Thai Shrimp Salad. Its really good as an appetizer for sharing but for a main course , we are also sure its more than enough for that big portion.


SIZZLING SWEET SPICY SALMON - IDR 189.000

10 oz pan seared Salmob served sizzling with crispy potatoes, sauteed onion and peppers, topped with Applebee's homemade sweet and spicy sauce. REALLY GOOD!


QUESADILLA BURGER - IDR 159.000

Juicy buger with Applebee's signature mexi-ranch sauce with pico de gallo and shredded lettuce served in a unique Jack and Cheddar quesadilla. FYI, Quesadilla is a wheat tortilla or a corn tortilla filled with cheese, a savoury mixture, and/or vegetables. This also comes with some fresh veggie and french fries.




MAPPLE CHICKEN PIADINI - IDR 119.000

Special cedar-seasoned chicken, cheddar, cheese, maple mustard sauce and beef bacon wrapped in a grilled Piadini wrap. This is a fancy version of 'Chicken Kebab' because it was full a protein. The chicken was slightly dry for us, but season was good enough.



BABY BACK RIBS - IDR 469.000

Last but not least, the protein that everybody is looking for! Baby Back Ribs! US BBQ Pork Ribs marinated in Applebee's special house blended spices, served with fries, grilled corn, and coleslaw with a choice of sauce. We expected it to be more succulent and juicier than that because it took a little effort to separate the meat with the bones.


BUTTER PECAN BLODIE - IDR 99.000

This is actually the first time we saw a dessert on a hot pot. They call it Butter Pecans (cake) baked with nuts, topped with ice cream, poured with butter sauce over the ice cream. This sauce was sizzling when reaching the hot pot, very interesting.


TRIPLE CHOCOLATE MELTDOWN - IDR 89.000

Super moist chocolate cake with a fudge-filled center served with Vanilla ice cream and melted hot fudge. The server explained this as a lava cake alike, so we all expected the center to be melting when sliced open. Bloggers were all starring un-blinked at this when one of us sliced it opened. Then, it was a disappointment when the chocolate inside was actually unmelted whatsoever. Nevertheless, the taste itself was really good actually! The cake was perfectly moist and sweet.




CHURROS S'MORES - IDR 109.000

I was not a fan of churros for some reasons, because it was generally dry and tasteless. I'm trying to be subjective but it was indeed dry and the smores itself didn't get up to my standard. I expected under the marshmallow there was a super hot and melted chocolate. But, it wasn't that much chocolate inside, so this dessert didn't work for me.



APPLE CHIMI CHEESECAKE - IDR 99.000

Creamy cheesecake and caramel apples wrapped in tortilla shell and lightly fried. Rolled in cinnamon sugar and placed on a bed of roasted apples. Served with ice cream and topped with caramel sauce. We didn't try this actually because it was a lot of food and this came the last. But judging by the looks, the apple must be sweet and crunch, combined with creamy cheese cake and vanilla ice cream, all together is perfect in our imagination :)


COCKTAIL

They have tons of Cocktails to try but unfortunately we didn't try it. Well, they claimed to have the cheapest cocktail promo in town, starting from 50k for a certain times and days.
