ALTITUDE GRILL at The Plaza

Altitude Grill at The Plaza is finally reopening its door after a major renovation or probably rebranding? We've come here once for a nice lunch and this time we came here for dinner on their 1st day opening (19 November 2017). Very excited because not only its a highly praised Steak House, but its also located strategically at the 46th floor of The Plaza Building with a beautiful Bundaran HI view. The interior looks very expensive (well yeah there's a price to pay for a beautiful restaurant). But its not just about the beautiful appearance, but its also about the amazing steaks led by their executive chef Gary Eng. I'm so excited to share our dining experience here.

Santan Coolinair ASEAN Food Festival with DOKU App

Last September, we visited SANTAN COOLINAIR food festival in The Space Senayan City from 29 September to 1 October 2017. The first ever event by Airasia in collaboration with Doku App bringing traditional cuisines from all over South East Asia to one place. if you are unfamiliar with SANTAN, it is actually the brand for the inflight food of Airasia flight. So, whenever you are having your food inside the Airasia plane, that's Santan! And apparently we are a big fan of their food, no cliche because we almost always pre-purchased the food via online or sometimes we bought it in the plane. But not just that, this event also brought local favorite foods from nasi padang, sate padang, bebek goreng, to es kopi susu, burger, and more! So, we are excited to show you the event. Check it out!

Hello MR FOX by Ismaya

I've been very busy towards the end of the year. Visiting here and there and travelling to a few places out of town, I got so little time to write a proper blog post, but this MR FOX review has been abandoned for at least 2 weeks now. I've been editing photos just days after visiting the restaurants but to be frankly speaking I got no time to make a proper review. As its still very hot in town, I'll just post whatever I got and hopefully you can judge based on the pictures. I mean the room is amazing, its very comfortable and its very casual. Foods were on points, its Ismaya BTW so there's not doubt about the concept and the taste. So, here we go!

On 21 October 2017, we got the previledge to attend an 'open house' by Jon's Smokery, an online retailer specializing on ready to cook bacon products. They have a few variety of bacons to try which unfortunately we didn't got the chance to try as we were slightly late. They showcased their products

KOPI SUSU BU LURAH Definitely The Best One!

Kopi Susu Bu Lurah ~ That's quite a humble yet catchy name. As the trend of Kopi Susu is rising up to the peak this year, many brands are now competing to offer not only the best tasting kopi susu, but also the cheapest they can offer. And I have to admit that a cup of kopi susu for less than 20k is quite affordable nowadays, and some even offered an uber low 10K during promotion periode. I honestly not really into chasing trend, so whenever there's a certain hype, I simply ignore it. I'll get it when I want it, not when anybody posts it on their social media. This Kopi Susu Bu Lurah is definitely the latest one in the market and in fact only less than a month by the time of this writing (20 October 2017). They have their unique jargon "The Best Kopi Susu in Indonesia ~ Says Pak Lurah" and yeah, its too cliche if we say its the best one, that's why its Pak Lurah's version. What about our version? Well Let's check our review here!

Romantic Dining at Patio Venue by Plataran

Patio Venue ~ has any of our readers been here or probably heard the name before? Because its actually pretty new. And if we don't tell you the background about this restaurant, you'll never notice.

Healthy Smoothie Bowls by ACAI BAR Senopati

Acai ~ a reddish-purple colored fruit from the berry family originated from South and Central America. Its is believed to have (if not the highest) higher antioxidant than any other berries such as blueberry, strawberry, blackbbery, raspberry and cranbbery. Its undoubtedly rare and unfamiliar for us living in Indonesia for the fact that the fruit itself is hardly found in the market. Up to this point of our writing, we don't have any clue how the exact fruit looks like. But we all know now there's a place in Jakarta to enjoy Acai in a fresh and delicious smoothie bowl: welcome to Acai Bar at Senopati, South Jakarta. Read more!

Met Nagita Slavina at Mango Bomb Lippo Mall Kemang

Mango Bomb is opening its third outlet at Lippo Mall Kemang on 12 October 2017. I was glad to be invited for this special grand opening day where I got to take picture with the owner Nagita Slavina herself! She is a very humble and down to earth if I may describe herself from what I saw. She greeted everybody on the location where a lot of people from medias, bloggers, and customers came to see her personally. Mango Juice is currently the latest beverage trend in the city and Mango Bomb has been quickly spreading their wings. I have to admit that this is the second Mango Juice brand that I tried and I'm glad that I really loved it. I'll take you to a few moments during the opening day!

MASIZZIM No. 1 Korean Stew in Asia

I was glad to be invited for the soft opening of Masizzim at PIK on 30 September 2017. Its their first outlet in Indonesia and they claim to be the number 1 Korean Stew in Asia. Their outlet in Singapore is always packed and you need to queue for at least an hour, that's what I heard! Well, during the soft opening in Jakarta, they displayed some of their signature dishes on a special table where I got to see their menus. It was also packed with invitees from owners, owners' relatives, medias and food bloggers. I also got to taste a few menus here but I couldn't tell much as I only had 1 Beef Stew dish and the rests were more like appetizers/ starters. Also, watch my youtube VLOG here!

KLTR Coffee Roasters

I didn't intentionally plan to make a blog review when visiting here because me and my friends were about to only have some drinks here. I heard a little bit about this coffee shop from my friend and little did I know that this is still from the same group who owns Cassis Kitchen. Apparently, KLTR Coffee is actually located at the same area of Cassis Kitchen. The theme here is some sort of oldies American Vibe like back in 1920s with its respective music as well. Earlier during the opening, they only opened until 5 PM, but lucky now they open until late night 10 PM. Not only Coffee here, you can also enjoy their tasty Lunch and Dinner menus! I'll show you some that me and my friends had here.

House of Yuen at Fairmont Hotel Jakarta

House of Yuen, that's the name that is probably unfamiliar to most people including us. Located at Fairmont Hotel Jakarta 3rd Floor, House of Yuen is operating under 1 Michelin Star restaurant named Sun Tung Lok. From the name itself, you'll guess it right, its a Chinese restaurant focusing on delivering excelent Chinese delicacies in an elegance and sophisticated interior. You can really tell by the time you step in to the restaurant. In this post, we are gonna show you some of the food recommendation here. So, without further a due, let's check it out.

Harris Vertu Hotel Jakarta Staycation Experience

Its always nice to stay at a lovely comfy hotel room and to be very honest, this is quite possible the second time I stayed at a hotel in Jakarta. Because I normally picked some nice hotels only when I was going out of town. Harris Vertu Hotel is located at Harmony area,West Jakarta where it is very close to the busy street of Thamrin. FYI, it is also the highest class from Tauzia Hotel Group where you normally know them for their Pop Hotel & Harris Hotel. Without further a due, let's take a look around the hotel.

The Sakala Resort at Tanjung Benoa Bali

Welcome to The Sakala Resort at Tanjung Benoa, Bali. Tanjung Benoa is a well kept secret paradise at the south part of Bali, famous for the beautiful beach, the tranquility and definitely the beach front resort! Used to be Mantra Sakala, we were once had our lunch here back in 2015 at their Sakala Beach Club which is located just before the beach. And now they transformed themselves into the new Sakala Resort. We got the chance to stay at their Deluxe Suite Room at the 5th floor, a spacious 60 meter square suite with a huge living room and a comfy luxurious bath room both interconnected with their main bed room. Wanna know more about our experience here? Let's check it out!

Enjoy Floating on The Pool at Cabina Bali

Welcome to Cabina Bali - A new tropical theme cafe with turquoise pool at the center as their signature. We got the chance to visit this newly opened cafe in Canggu during our trip to Bali on last September 2017 and it was such a nice place to hang out! It was our last day in Bali (day 4) and we were about to leave the island at night. So, it was so unfortunate that we couldn't enjoy the pool like plunging or floating on the giant watermelon float! We tasted a few of their recommended menu and we are excited to share them with you right now. Let's take a look!

Afternoon at Karma Private Beach - Uluwatu

Karma Kandara, a dream resort that I believe everybody wants to experience at least once in a lifetime. But well, not everybody has that purchasing power to stay at the luxurious expensive resort. The only option you can experience is to visit Karma Beach! Yeay a private beach located separately from Karma Kandara resort. Experience going down the hill to the beach with their mini electric cart and watch the amazing view (especially the sun set) on your way down from the hill. Expect to spend at least 500K/person to reach the private beach in which you are given 300K credit to order any food and beverages (exc alcohol) on the bar. Beach was clean and peaceful while being enlivened with the resort's live music performance. Let's check out our beach moments here!

Momozen - Authentic Japanese Restaurant on the 46th

Another high end Japanese Restaurant in town, introducing MOMOZEN! Got the chance to try a few signature dishes here, its located at The Plaza Building at 46th Floor. We were actually invited by Nibble App to visit this restaurant and we tasted 5 different dishes from their Tapas to their main course. The first picture above is their best selling Black Truffle Somen with Caviar (80K), its a cold served somen or angle hair noodle neatly plated with an intense truffle flavor. I was totally sold with this one, it was really addicting! Size wise it was petite actually, so eat with care :p This gonna be a very short review, so let's go!

Wapa di Ume - Best Honeymoon Villa in Ubud

This image above might look like an abandoned house somewhere in the middle of the jungle. I managed to capture this image from a certain angle in the area. I really love the shot, because it somehow shows the natural side of a resort. Let me introduce you to Wapa Di Ume, a hidden exotic resort in Ubud. We were looking for a hotel 2 days prior to our arrival in Bali and it was like last minutes! I browsed through Agoda.com and got tons of choices. Ubud has been one of the best places in Bali to escape from a busy buzzling city. One thing about picking a nice stay is by sorting the hotel's rating. Wapa Di Ume came out as one of the best with a rating above 8 (forgot the exact). And were didn't make a wrong choice, this easily became the only two most memorable resort in Ubud after Padma Ubud. I have specially put a lot of effort in making this review just for you guys. So enjoy!

Very excited that A&W Restaurant is finally having some new exciting menus. And its not just one, two, or three, but its more than that! Introducing 3 main courses and 3 desserts: American Tender Chicken and Mango Coco Magic. We were fortunate to be invited for the launching of these menus on 29 August 2017 and you guys can have them already at your nearest A&W Restaurant. Do you know that there are around 250 A&W stores all over Indonesia? I never really noticed that big number, especially in Jakarta because there are only two to three stores that I know. But their secret recipes and their famous Root Beer make me come back again! This time I will introduce you their new seasonal menus. Here we go!

The Harvest Atilier Making Blueberry Bloom with Mike Lewis

Sebuah kesempatan berharga diundang ke acara The Harvest Cake untuk membuat kue Blueberry Bloom langsung dengan Chef nya. Gambar cake berwarna ungu di atas adalah cake hasil ciptaan gw sendiri selama acara berlangsung. Nah bintang tamu nya adalah Mike Lewis nih guys! Jadi Mike juga ikutan membuat cake Blueberry Bloom tersebut, sekaligus sebagai juri juga karena di akhir acara dia yang memilih cake kreasi siapa sih yang paling bagus versi dia. Ternyata bikin cake gampang gampang susah sih guys. Soalnya proses nya lumayan panjang dari membuat bahan dasar nya (cake base dan blueberry creamnya), menata bahan tersebut ke dalam satu loyang bulat, mendinginkan cake tersebut ke freezer, hingga menghias cake dengan berbagai hiasan yang dapat dimakan. Proses nya hampir 3 jam nih guys. Nah di blog kali ini gw akan kasih liat proses membuat cake ini selama event berlangsung. Cek review lengkapnya yuk!

Le Diliel Asian Bistro & Bar - Pluit Village

There's finally a nice luxury bistro at Pluit, and I really mean very fine restaurant at Pluit Village. This shopping mall has been an underdog, yes people somehow blindly judge this place as a 'dead' and unpopular place. But lately I found out that there are actually nice cafes inside and its quite hidden on the balcony area or the outdoor area of the mall. I hardly found the location at first until I finally found out that there is an outdoor area. Its a surprised feeling when going inside the room. I was quite stunned by the beautiful decoration. It was Friday night when we came here and it was actually an invitation dinner by The HYPE group. There was no particular event whatsoever, we got invited here purely to enjoy our night in a special beautiful table decor and with a 5 star service! Bravo Le Diliel, you surprised us that night!

New HOURS COFFEE & MORE at Kelapa Gading

Another new coffee shop in town, specifically in Kelapa Gading. I am a very picky person when it comes to reviewing coffee shop. I don't know I just feel like pesimistic about current coffee shop trend where they only sell coffee (I mean standard coffee sorry). But this one HOURS is something fresh and tempting. The whole fresh concept that I saw from the social media really attracted me to come. I visited here for a quick lunch and they have only a few menus to try. I really hope they add some more main course menus, such as steak or pasta because I hardly picked a main course for that little options. But my first impression was pretty nice, foods were fine, coffee was decent, room was quite packed as it was still around a week or two of the opening. I don't have much to show, but hope you enjoy the review. Let's go!

Sajian Nasi Liwet ala BUMBU REMPAH di PIK

Guys mau kenalin nih salah satu penantang baru di Elang Laut PIK (kaya pertunjukan tinju yaa penantang) namanya Bumbu Rempah, Yeayy! Dari namanya juga sudah cukup jelas ya yaitu restoran dengan masakan Indonesia authentic. Kenapa Bumbu Rempah? Karena memang masakannya penuh dengan rempah-rempah #Eaaaa. Jadi Bumbu Rempah ini ada di deretan paling awal restoran2 yang ada di Elang Laut, atau satu ruko setelah Minus Two kalau kalian tau. Specialist nya sebenarnya di menu Nasi Liwet nih guys, yaitu nasi yang disajikan beramai2 dengan lauk pauk di atas daun pisang yang digelar di atas meja, bukan di lantai ya :) Bumbu Rempah ini ingin membawa konsep masakan lokal tradisional dengan ambience yang cukup nyaman karena berada di indoor berAC dan juga di atas meja tentunya. Package nya ini bisa untuk ber10 loh guys, jadi kalau buat acara rumpi bareng temen atau keluarga seru banget nih. Bayangin kalau makan nasi liwet pake tangan terus disajikan dengan sayur asam, ikan teri, ayam goreng, udang, dll. Mending liat keseruan kita yuk di sini :D

Gelato Factory Bali - Best Gelato in Bali

There are quite a few Gelato brands in Bali but there is one that for me honestly to be the best one. I mean it kinda sounds very cliche like BEST is sort of a preference to every individual. But me and Lucy agree that Gelato Factory is by far our favorite. Gelato must be creamy like this and I believe they use the freshest ingredients especially the milk. You can tell how smooth their gelato and it melts very quick in just  a few seconds. We visited Gelato Factory at their Seminyak outlet at Jalan Kayu Aya 32 (Oberoi) and it is strategically located at a very buzzling street in Seminyak. If you know La Favela at seminyak, then it is just a few meters away! I can't wait to show you their outlet here!

KEDAI PAWON SAE by Bogana Milka

Rasanya sudah lama sekali tidak makan comfort food aka traditional Indonesian food seperti ini. Terus terang memang kita saking lebih seringnya mengejar kafe2 hits baru sampai lupa dengan makanan tradisional kita sendiri ya. Tapi ada rasa kangen tersendiri ketika melihat makanan Indonesia yang sederhana namun sangat lezat seperti yang satu ini Kedai Pawon Sae by Bogana Milka. Ya Bogana Milka ini sudah ada di industri makanan tradisional selama kurang lebih 20 tahunan. Bisnis nya ini dimulai oleh pendiri nya Ibu Milka dengan resep utamanya Nasi Bogana. Saat ini beliau banyak menciptakan kreasi makanan lainnya yang dapat ditemui di restoran dengan label Kedai Pawon Sae. Kemudian apa sih yang ditawarkan di Kedai ini? Yuk baca selengkapnya.

Buffet Lunch at Orient 8 - Hotel Mulia

Its my first time to this luxurious buffet restaurant at Hotel Mulia Senayan and I was quite excited when I first stepped into the restaurant. Its a weekday lunch time when I visited here and I escaped for a while from my work. I was quite stunned by how beautiful the room, the table, and all the decoration here. Food area wasn't quite that big actually, in fact the seating area is 3 time bigger than the food area. I believe its because a weekday lunch, its gonna be different if its dinner or weekend lunch. Oh btw, I was here because of Nibble App invitation. You might have heard the app a few times from my latest restaurant review, because I was invited for some food review here. I am not a typical buffet person, so what I'm gonna show you in the blog post is more to beautiful pictures than a close up of the food itself. Let's check it out!

The First BOAT NOODLE in Indonesia - Gandaria City

I'm about to introduce you guys to the most happening restaurant in Gandaria City at the moment, this is Boat Noodle. The idea of this restaurant is to serve you a small serve of Thai noodle which is actually inspired by the real noodle served in floating marketing in Thailand. There's a true reason behind the small serve noodle! While the boat on the floating market is shaking, they try to minimize the soup from spilling by serving a petite size of noodle in the bowl. That's pretty funny to think about because each bowl can only feed you around 2 spoons. So, during the early opening, they tried to make a hype by asking you to stack the bowls as much as you can. Each bowl only costs you IDR 8.500 with one choice of soup and meatball. So, 3-4 bowls still cost you reasonably right?

Reopening of Fountain Lounge at Grand Hyatt Jakarta

We were really glad to be invited by Nibble Apps for the reopening of Fountain Lounge at Grand Hyatt Jakarta. We frankly never heard the name before but Fountain Lounge is certainly a legendary. Its the perfect lounge located at the very center of Jakarta at one of the most prestigious hotels in Jakarta as well. Its actually an open space lounge with very high ceiling and located just besides the big window front facing the iconic Bundaran HI. Its certainly luxurious, relaxing and definitely calming. Its also a great place for some afternoon tea / coffee, snacks or some healthy bites. We had some of their signature meals and beverages, so why don't you take a look!

Gunung Mas Resto - The Enery Building Sudirman

Hayo siapa yang udah pernah cobain Gunung Mas Resto? Terus Terang ini baru pertama kalinya kita cobain dan surprisingly lokasinya ada di The Enery Building Sudirman! Lokasi perkantoran elite yang biasanya diisi oleh cafe/lounge ala western style. Usut punya usut, ternyata pemilik Gunung Mas ini adalah saudara kandung dari pemilik bisnis restoran Chuan Tin yang cukup terkenal. Jadi jangan heran kalau kedua restoran ini memiliki tipikal makan yang sejenis. Gunung Mas ini lebih condong ke arah makanan Indonesia - Hokkian, namun mereka 100% Halal loh! Yuk baca selengkapnya!

The latest afternoon high tea by Bottega Ristorante at Fairground SCBD. The 2 month old restaurant recently launched their first High Tea set as you can see above.

Not only pampering yourselves in a beautiful luxurious interior yet casual dining, but also serving assorted mouth watering afternoon snacks.

Nebula Kuningan at Mega Kuningan

A new kid on the block, introducing Nebula Kuningan. The fourth establishment of Nebula cafe/restaurant originally from Bali! Its probably new to Jakartans but for those who reside in Bali must have heard their name. We got the chance to taste some of their signature dishes here on Saturday 15 July 2016. And they are currently still in soft opening period and serving lunch & dinner from 11 AM to 10 PM everyday! Its a very bold move for them to create such unique South East Asian dishes in a brand that doesn't really sound like Asian. In fact, this Asian dishes are almost, if not all, different from what they offer in Bali. Let's check out our tasting event!

Grand Opening Promotion for Kokoro Mazesoba - Gandaria City

First of all, congratulation to Kokoro Mazesoba for their Grand Opening of the second outlet at Gandaria City, South Jakarta. Its a very fast move of this new soba franchise from Tokyo, Japan. I thought they were just opening like one month ago and now its another new outlet. There's a mixed review about their signature Zenbu Soba (above picture), some liked it and some hated it. We personally a super big fan, hands down. There's no similar competitor at the moment as they are very unique and authentique. You might compare them to Yamatoten Abura Soba right? Yes, they are similar but Kokoro doesn't have that vinegar sour flavor at all. So, you may pick which one is your favorite. They are also offering special opening promotion! Anyway, let's check out the Grand Opening even on 13 July 2017!

Petite Coffee Corner at Sixty Two Coffee - Senopati

Another new coffee shop in South Jakarta, introducing Sixty Two Coffee aka 62 Coffee! I'm frankly not really into coffee shop lately as I'm more enjoying my cup of coffee at home. But sometimes we gather with our friends at new places, so we look for something fresh to visit. And apparently, this one was my next destination. I came here with a few friends for some cup of coffees, and light meals. so here's my review!

Makan Ikan Terjangkau di Fish & Cheap - Tanjung Duren

Kalian pasti sudah pernah denger dong Fish Streat - Restoran dengan specialist ikan goreng tepung dengan harga yang sangat murah. Mereka sudah sangat booming di Jakarta, apalagi kalau jam makan malem antrian nya cukup heboh ya. Nah ini ada satu lagi yang mau mulai bersaing di Jakarta tepatnya di tanjung duren yaitu Fish & Cheap. Dari namanya aja udah jelas ya Cheap itu murah hehe. Secara interior harus gw akui ini lebih luas dan terlihat lebih bagus ya. At least bukan sekedar restoran dengan meja dan kursi. Mereka baru saja pembukaan tanggal 8 Juli 2017 dan kita mampir tanggal 9 Juli nih, jadi masih fresh from the oven banget. Kita mau kasih liat quick preview untuk resto dan makanan yang kita coba. Yuk di cek!

SUSHI TAKA - PIK

Another new Sushi House in town! Well, not really new, its been more than a month I believe. I visited here on 9 June 2017 and I could finally post it here on the blog. If you knew Carnivore in PIK, then that is the place! Apparently, Carnivore was closed for good and transformed into Sushi Taka. I wasn't prepared to make a blog post for this restaurant. So expect to see pictures without name. Let;s check it out.

Sudoet Tjerita - Coffee Shop di Central Park

Satu lagi coffee shop yang hitz di Jakarta Barat. Rasanya kalian sudah banyak yang tau ya, ini Sudoet Tjerita. Posisi nya tepat di seberang Neo Soho (ruko Royal Mediteriania).

Jadi untuk blog post kali ini, gw gak banyak review ya. Yuk cek foto foto nya :)

TWO STORIES - Cafe Gaul di Bogor

Akhirnya nemu coffee shop dan resto yang unik di Bogor. Biasa ke bogor agak kecewa dengan makanan di restorannya, terutama untuk makanan barat nya yang bisa dibilang jauh dari standart restoran di Jakarta. Kali ini gw cobain Two Stories yang ada di Jalan Pajajaran, bukan restoran baru sih soalnya tertulis Est, 2014. Tapi sekian kali ke Bogor, baru kali ini dapet rekomendasi resto ini dari followers di instagram gw yang aktif DM insta story gw pas di Bogor akhir Juni 2017. Yuk cek gimana suasana restonya!

Kata Kata Eat To Meat - Coffee Shop in Muara Karang

Another coffee shop in town, specifically in Muara Karang, Pluit. Let me introduce you to Kata Kata Eat To Meet! A relatively new coffee shop opened around 21/22 June 2017. By the time we visitied here, it was just 4 days old. As of the writing of this blog 29 June 2017, they are still in soft opening period. So, expect to have some changes on their menus on the grand opening later, because they had not fixed on their food menus. Let me show you a little bit of our breakfast experience here!

Lewis & Carroll Flower Market at Central Grand Indonesia

The uber hyped Flower Market in Central Grand Indonesia is finally on our blog! This is Lewis and Carroll second outlet after their first one in South Jakarta. We happened to visit here in mid June 2017 when we were actually looking for some dinner and we heard about this newly opened flower market. It is located at Upper Ground Central Department Store just before the border with Kempinski. We instantly fell in love with the ambience here. Its just so calming and relaxing. But how's the food? Well, we've covered our short review here!

Perth Travel Experience 2017


Hello Perth! Ini adalah trip pertama gw di Perth walaupun gw sebenarnya tidak asing lagi sama Australia. Sedikit flash black ke 2009-2010, gw bersekolah Pasca Sarjana di Sydney selama 1.5 tahun. Selama masa sekolah tersebut, gw hanya menjelajah kota Melbourne, Canberra dan Gold Coast saja. Kota-kota mainstream di Australia ya, namun entah kenapa tidak ada minat buat ke Perth karena Perth terkenal dengan kotanya yang sangat sepi. Selama periode 2010 - 2016, gw masih mengunjungi Australia 2x, tentunya ke Sydney dan Melbourne lagi. Nah, kebetulan trip terakhir itu tahun 2016 dan gw mendapatkan visa untuk 3 tahun multiple trip. Akhirnya bulan May 2017 gw dan Lucy membuat rencana trip ke Perth mengingat biaya flight nya cukup murah di bulan tersebut. Nah di blog ini gw mau share sedikit tentang kota Perth. Mari dibaca :)

The Cheapest Michelin Starred Meal - Hawker Chan in Jakarta

Guys, have you heard about the opening of Liao Fan Hawker Chan - Hongkong Soya Sauce Chicken in Jakarta? Because they are officially opening today, 20 June 2017! Hawker Chan is awarded the cheapest Michelin Starred Meal in the world in Singapore. Its originally a hawker stall selling Hongkong Soya chicken rice for only $2. And since awarded with Michelin (one) Star, the stall is always queued with people probably around the world for 2-3 hours! The big hype even came to my ears last year when people queuing for hours. And yesterday, 19 June 2017, I got the chance to taste the pre-opening of the official Hawker Chan in PIK Jakarta with the man himself. Since this franchise is brought by the same group as Tim Ho Wan, the outlet is located on the second floor of Tim Ho Wan in PIK. So, let's check out my quick review!

New Private Pool Villa by S18 Bali Villas at Kuta - Bali

Back again with an exciting Bali Hotel review. This time, I wanna share you my bext experience at the newly established S18 Bali Villas at Kuta, Bali. I was really glad that by the time we came here, it was just a few weeks old. They started running since early May 2017 and we stayed here on 27 May 2017. S18 Villas is located at Jalan Dewi Sri 3, a busy street at Kuta, Bali. It is strategically located very close to the airport, around 15 minutes or 6 km. So, its a very right decision for me to stay here, because the next day we were about to catch our morning flight. Are you ready to too see more? Let's have a look!

Exqusite dinner at KAUM Jakarta in Menteng

Finally, KAUM is bringing their business here in Jakarta! Its their 3rd outlet after Hongkong's and Bali's, and we were so excited to try it. We have visited their Bali's outlet and it is by far one of the best Indonesian restaurants in Seminyak (if not in Bali). Since then, we had such quite high expectation for their new outlet in Jakarta. It was a breathtaking experience once we stepped inside the restaurant as it was totally a new experience here. Room was very uniquely Indonesia and it really felt like home actually. So, how's the food? Well, we have covered our tasting result here. Let's check it out.
