Fine Dining Oufit

Hello fashionista! Happy Chinese New Year for all of you who celebrate it!

This CNY, I went to Jia Dining to have a family gathering lunch for Chinese New Year (food review will be posted soon). Tips before you go : find out the interior of the restaurant. If you go for a fancy dining, try to wear semi-formal to formal outfit. Wearing a same outfit with the resto’s theme is preferable. For example, if you go to a cafe, wearing casual outfit is the right option. If you go to a fine dining, then wearing a dress is excellent! Chinese restaurant is identical with gold touch and chinese interior, then a vest or dress is preferable.

Since it is in CNY theme, I chose to wear simple cheongsam in pink. Wearing red or pink during CNY is a must to get happiness, cheers, and joy through this year. If you don’t like red or pink, you can wear orange, yellow, light blue, or light green. Light color shows good aura during this festive season. It is believed that wearing dark color during CNY will bring bad luck =(

However, if you don’t have time to do the googling, then wearing black outfit is the solution! Black will make you look classy, elegant, and fabulous ♥♥♥ Trust me! Never goes wrong with black. Wearing monochrome is also another choice.

Hello foodies! Recently, I passed this cafe when I visited my friend’s house in Sunter. I remembered Lapis Lapis cake shop at Mal Kelapa Gading and I thought it was the same cake shop with the one in Sunter. I gathered some information from Zomato, knowing it was both cake shop and cafe. So, I just came by to see what is inside that two-story cafe.

The cake shop was on the 1st floor and the cafe was on the 2nd floor. On 1st floor there were indoor area and small outdoor area where they also sell Lapis Cake at 1st floor.

The 2nd floor was same like the 1st floor, but it’s a little bit bigger than the 1st floor. When you visit this place, I suggest you to sit at 2nd floor. The nice modern wooden facade on the 2nd floor reminds me of a cozy coffee place in South Jakarta.


2nd Floor


2nd Floor Indoor

I also love the interior of the outdoor at the balcony and the place was quiet instagrammable. No wonder this place is often used for birthday celebration and bridal shower. The indoor area was quiet dark even in the afternoon. The place was not crowded and calm. I think I’m gonna like this place ♥


2nd Floor Outdoor

The price of the food and drinks were quiet affordable as compared to any other cafes around Sunter and Kelapa Gading. The portion was big enough to get your stomach full. We ordered both  Asian and Western Menus.


My Lunch

Chicken cordon bleu was chosen for my main menu since I want to try their Western Menu. The battered chicken filled with beef ham and melted cheese. The size was half of the plate (quiet big for myself to finish it all)! The fettucini could be exchanged with french fries. The cream was poured on the chicken and fettucini. The overall taste was so-so, but I like the fettucini in my cordon bleu. What I like was the cream was not as thick as any other cream and not so creamy. Maybe some of you prefer to eat thicker cream.


Chicken Cordon Bleu (60k)

Hainan Chicken Rice was quiet good although it was not as authentic as the one I usually eat. The rice was cooked with chicken stock. The chicken pieces was big! The soup was too salty for me, though. The garlic and ginger taste were not to strong. For me, the taste was so-so, despite of its big portion.


Hainan Chicken Rice Set (45k)

I also order one small portion of Captain Crunch Sushi. All kinds of sushi in Lapis Lapis are in 2 portions: small and large. The sushi consisted of salom, cream cheese, asparagus crabstick, and seaweed. There was no rice in the sushi. The salmon was sushi was fried, so that the outer past was so crunchy. The inside part was soft and the salmon was not fishy at all ♥ The taste of Captain Crunch was quiet good. One portion equals to 5 pieces of sushi.


Captain Crunch Small (40k)

For the drink, I tried Lychee Twist Organic Tea (green tea-based). The taste was sweet enough even sugarless. The aroma of fresh lychee made me enjoy my lunch. Recommended for you who like fruity-aroma tea.


Lychee Twist Organic Tea (35k)

Overall, I enjoyed my time in Lapis Lapis The Kitchen. The place was so cozy, not crowded, and calm. The food was quiet good with big portion. Affordable price with big portion. I recommend the place either for a casual lunch, dinner, or for a coffee break. I think the place is good for dating ♥ Happy Weekend!

Gudetama Cafe by Izumi Curry Hong Kong – Cuteness Overload ♥

Hello all Foodies! This time I will share about my dining experience in Hong Kong. One of the famous cafe there was Gudetama Cafe by Izumi Curry. I ♥ Gudetama. So, I came far away from Jakarta – Mong Kok – Kwun Tong to meet the famous Japanese lazy egg mascot! After transforming into cute dim  sum at Dim Sum Icon, Gudetama finds its way to transform into Japanese udon and curry rice.


Summary of my culinary diary in Gudetama Cafe Hong Kong

The craze over Gudetama continues in Hong Kong as Izumi Curry located at The One Shopping Mall on the Basement floor. If you are not aware, Gudetama is one of sanrio character that was created in year 2013. Think Gudetama table-top, chairs in the shape of egg shells, Gudetama cushions, mugs and food. Amazing!!!


Gudetama Cafe by Izumi Curry


Cute Chairs


The interior

The place was fully decorated with Gudetama-theme and even the chairs are in egg shape. There are plushies at the seating area where customers could grab it and took photos with it. There is also Gudetama merchandise store next to the café that sells the miniatures of Gudetama and many more. We looked through the limited menu list and decided on our order.


We decided on 3 sets which costs us additional HKD18 ~S$3.60 that comes with a drink (apple juice or orange juice) each. In case you are wondering the waiting time, the foods were served within 15 minutes, since it was not crowded and only 2 tables filled.


On The Table

The foods are coming! The frowning lazy-sleepy face of Gudetama was present in almost every dish in the form of egg, be it hard boiled, half-boiled or scrambled. All of the set menus were so cute ♥♥♥


Special Omelette Rice with Bacons and Sausage (HKD 99)

Looking from the appearance, the look of Gudetama was so irritating and too cute to be eaten! The stylist was so good and very photogenic. The aroma of curry was quiet good. However, the taste was so-so. Good looking, but not good to eat. The yellow rice wrapped in a pink, soft and non-crispy bacon, covered by the sunny egg. The sausage was standard, quiet crispy on the surface. The bacon was bad, tasteless. The curry was quiet good.


Pork Fillet with Omelette Curry Rice (HKD 119)

The pork fillet was quiet crispy and dry. The rice was tasteless, but you can eat it with the tasty curry gravy. Not too bad, although it was not worth with the price.


Hamburger Steak and Cheese Curry Rice (HKD 129)

Our favourite was the Hamburger Steak And Cheese Curry Rice with an irritated-looking Gudetama lying on top of the minced beef. The beef was tender and the cheese was yummy! Not too creamy, but blended well with the beef and curry rice.

The disappointing point was the juice was not fresh. We ordered the set menu with orange and apple juice. We thought they were fresh juice, but instead, they were instant juice! For me, the foods were overprice with low quality of ingredient, especially for the juice. Perhaps, we could get more of fresh juice and fresh ingredients.

Overall, the cafe had awesome interior design, especially the Gudetama stuffs. Really enjoying my lunch time there with my family. If you are a Gudetama lover, you wouldn’t want to miss this. I would not suggest you to have a delicious and affordable meal in this place.

Toby’s Estate – New Hits Coffee Shop in PIK

Toby's Estate Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I believe a lot of you who read this have heard or even tried the latest coffee in PIK Avenue Mall. That’s the Toby’s Estate, serving the best coffee in town! I went there to celebrate New Year with my friends. It was so crowded and long waiting list. Even if you go there to reserve a table full of 6 and you are still alone, the waiter will not allow you to enter the cafe. Lots of patient to have some good foods and coffee in Toby’s Estate.


Me and friends 🙂


Toby’s Estate is the first Australian-based coffee roaster store in Indonesia. The café is said to be the first user of the Mavam Espresso machine in Indonesia and offers specialty coffees, ranging from single-origin coffee to its signature Australian flat-white. Meals include eggs benedict, buttermilk fried chicken on a corn frittata and Toby’s signature ricotta pancakes. Aside from operating as a coffee chain, the brand also sells its coffee to other stores in Australia. If you like coffee, you can consider to have it here.

The place is located outside of the mall (but still a part of it), near the Starbucks. The place was quite big and many bloggers were taking picture around the cafe. Inside, the modern design of coffee shop was crowded (that’s why is hot inside). I like the decoration : simple, spacious, and modern-industrial feel inside the shop. I think it’s a perfect place to hangout with your friends.


The crowd of the cafe

For the coffee, they serve espresso based coffee (piccolo, cappuccino, latte) and non-coffee drinks. Price range starts from IDR 30k-85k for coffee. Our drinks ranged from coffee to tea. We don’t like coffee and still prefer to tea. For tea, we chose Chrysan tea and Peppermint tea.


For me, I chose Affogato. The espresso was well-blended with the vanilla ice cream. The coffee was thick, but not as bitter as the other espresso. For me, it was good since I don’t like bitter. However, the coffee lovers would regret it. Although it had thick body, but the taste was not like espresso.


Cappuccino latte is a good choice. The coffee was thick and bitter. My friend, who is a coffee lover said that it was quiet good.


Cappuccino / Piccolo (35k)

For the food, the Truffle Fries must be tried for those who love it! It was 65k for a plenty of french fries. The truffle oil was so good, well-blended with the cheese and fries. The fries was crispy and soft, the seasoning was just perfect! Quiet big portion and guess what? It was too much for 6 people! A good snack for having coffee time.


Truffle Parmesan Fries (65k)

The Woolly (sauteed spinach) and Broadway (Salmon) Eggs Benedict were tasty. Judging from the portion, the portion was quiet small, but once you have finished one whole portion, you will feel so full. Maybe because the fat was quiet high to fulfill your hunger.


Broadway Style Egg’s Benedict (135k)


Woolly Style Egg’s Benedict (125k)

Meet the signature dish : Buttermilk Chicken and Corn Frittata. The appearance looked appetizing with 2 pieces of big fried chicken. The taste was like Bakwan jagung or Fuyung hai. The frittata was soft, thin, and looks like a big bakwan jagung. The chicken was quiet good, but it was hard enough to slice the chicken with fork and knife! Better to use your own bare hands 🙂


Buttermilk Chicken and Corn Frittata (125k)

For the pasta, I tried Pork Linguine Toss with tagliatelle. The pasta was al dente, cooked with super creamy carbonara sauce. The mushroom slice was quite big, but thin. The pork skin was crispy and you’ll like it! Overall, it was so creamy and I think the portion is better to be eaten by 2 people.


Pork Linguine Toss (115k)

Mac and Cheese tasted tasty and creamy, especially the cheese. However, it is better to be consumed by more than one person. The creaminess will overwhelmed you. Better to eat that with a cup of bitter coffee.


Mac & Cheese (105k)

Overall, the food dishes were tasted good, but still overpriced. The price was higher than any other coffee shop. For the coffee, it still needs improvement from the aroma and taste. The ‘body’ was just okay. The place was spacious, but lots of people inside and makes the shop even hotter. Well, quiet nice experience with Toby’s Estate. Have a cup of coffee!

Bunga Rampai – Classic, Elegant, and Luxurious

Bunga Rampai Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

First of all, I wanna say :

“HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017! Hope this year will be better and may you have a wonderful year ahead ;)”


If you still confuse where to go for New Year’s date or feast, then I suggest you could try Bunga Rampai. In the end of 2016, I went for a family gathering celebration for Mother’s Day, Christmast’s, and New Year’s Eve at Bunga Rampai. Why did I choose this place? It’s because they serve a tasty Indonesian food (proud to be Indonesian!) and the place is so beautiful and suitable for having a celebration. It’s private (there are some private rooms on each floor), well-designed, elegant, and the service is very good.

Bunga Rampai is located at Menteng, opposite the Jakarta Eye Centre (JEC). The restaurant is looked ike 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. Some people says that the restaurant is pretty hard to find since it looks like a small white house form the outside. It’s a 3-story house with a small cafe inside the restaurant. Each floor is estimated to accommodate up to 80 people with different concept design.

On the 1st floor, there is a wide area in the middle with some big tables. There are 2 private rooms on this floor. The small one is located on the left side, and the other one is located at the bck of the waiting room. The waiting room itself is luxuriously designed with classic and elegant look. Many public figures and bloggers always take photos at this spot (me too!). The waiting room itself is already great and I have to told you that the dining area was even greater than the waiting room. There is also a big VIP room, accomodated for max. 16 pax. The chandeliers were made with red crystals and it is a suitbale place for me to have a family gathering celebration. It is also perfect for Sangjit, birthday party, and another private event.


A waiting room near the restrooms

The 1st floor was an old-style fine dining concept with white colour dominated all over the building. The waiting room at the back (near the kitchen and restrooms) is a perfect place for photoshoot and there is an elevator at the left side.

The 2nd floor was way more to the modern fine dining concept. The decorations were grand and luxurious, seems like you have entered a grand dining room in a castle. Each side has a different concept.


2nd Floor: Luxurious Fine Dining Concept


2nd floor: Outside the VIP Room

The 3rd floor is a rooftop fine-dining concept. The place was so great with a perfect lighting. A perfect place for youngers and teenagers since there is a bar at the corner. However, it’s quiet hot at noon since the sun light will heat you up across the glass-house.

Let’s go for the food party!

The service is quiet good. The waiters are very kind and polite, yet you will be treated like a princess.  The ambient is quiet good, peaceful, and relaxing. Feel like you are an honourable guest in a luxurious old castle.



The food is quiet tasty with high quality ingredient. No wonder the price is quiet expensive, but it’s worth it!


Nasi Buketan (95k)

Nasi Buketan is a steamed aromatic pandan leaf rice served with sliced omelet, beef skewer, spicy fried chicken, potato and shrimp light curry, corn fritter, sweet soy bean cake fritter, sweet potato chip, chili bilimbi fruit peanut sauce and shrimp crackers. It is delicious! However, the portion is not as big as I thought at first. It’s not enough for having this menu for your meal.

Nasi Bali (95k)

Nasi Bali is a nasi campur in Balinese style served with minced shrimp and fish skewer (sate lilit), spicy shredded chicken, egg with red chili relished, relished, snake bean-cabbage-mung bean sprout with spicy shredded coconut (karedok), deep fried braised meat (like dendeng batokok), sweet and sour deep fried julienne of potato, shallot and bird eye chili relished, and chili shrimp paste relished. For me, it is tastier than Nasi Buketan because the side dishes (meat, relished, and vegetable) are more various. The sambal matah is good and the sate lilit is quiet tasty.
Iga Rawon Genjeran is a short ribs blackened soup with caramelized shallot, sliced celery and spring onion on top, served with jasmine rice, salted egg, mung bean sprout, chili shrimp paste relished, and shrimp crackers. The soup was very salty. The short ribs were tender and tsty. It’s better to tell the waiter to have it less salt.

Bihun Goreng Jawa (65k)

Bihun goreng Jawa is a Javanese style rice noodles with shredded chicken, cabbage, sliced omelette with caramelized shallot on top. The appearance was plain, not an appetizing-look like the other main dish. However, the taste was good. The rice noodle was well-cooked with all the seasonings, creating a delicious bihun goreng. For me, it was one of the best dishes so far.
Sate Banjar is a South Kalimantan chicken skewer in chili peanut served with caramelized shallot. The sate was tasty, each portion has 8 pieces of skewers. The sauce is sweet and spicy. It’s pricey, but tasty.

Tahu Telor (60.5k)

Tahu Telor is a tofu omelette with julienne of cabbage and carrot, mung bean sprouts, served with soya sauce mixed with black shrimp paste (petis). The tofu omelette is crispy at the outside and soft in the inside. The seasoning is perfect. However, the sauce is too sweet and the aroma is not like petis.
For the dessert, a various Indonesian desserts were available. I chose 3 desserts.

Lava Choclate Cake (58.5k)

Lava chocolate is a molten chococake served with homemade vanilla ice cream. Both the cake and ice cream were so small and pricey. I think it’s not quiet enough to fulfill your mouth. The chocolate cake was actually good with dark melted chocolate. The vanilla ice cream was too sweet.

Es Lobi Lobi (32.5k)

Es Lobi Lobi is a stewed batoko plum and topped with shredded ice. The sweet sour tasty will make you fresh. It is quiet good for you who like sour taste.

Es Cendol Dawet Ayu (35k)

Es Cendol Dawet Ayu is a traditional Javanese mung bean flour jelly, served with sliced jack fruit, coconut milk, and palm sugar syrup. The soup smelled like durian, the sweetness was enough and the tape was good. It tasted good, but so small portion.
Overall, Bunga Rampai serves a great place for having important events and celebrations. The food dishes and desserts were quiet tasty, although the price was quiet high. The service was good, friendly, and nice. For a fine dining class, I think Bunga Rampai have the food, service, and amazing place at one. Selamat makan!
