Even though the celebration is not common, Halloween is still one of the events that you can celebrate with your friends. The costumes, the decorations, and also the foods are made to be ghost-like character and to scary all of the people. The “Trick or Treat” and the Jack-O-Lantern are two things that should be there in a Halloween party. It’s a little bit difficult to find a restaurant / cafe that is suitable to celebrate a Halloween party in Jakarta. We decided to search all places via Zomato and Pergikuliner . Finally, after long discussion, we chose Bistronomy as the right place for the Halloween party.

Located at Senopati (near Gastromaquia), Bistronomy is a suitable place for private party. Judging from the outside, it looks like a vintage house, but kinda spooky.

Inside, each table is separated with curtains, hence no need to worry that you might be disturbed with the others. The place is kinda a small house with spooky decoration. All of the employee wear black dresses and black suits. The dim light and the rain are so perfect, making the party even more spooky. At the right side, there is a bar with vintage touch.

I like how they decorate all parts of the restaurant with Halloween props, such as pumpkin, scary dolls, monsters’ hands, gothic-look a like costumes, and many more. We had so much fun during our time at Bistronomy.

REGULAR MENU

Bistronomy Mix Platter (70k)

DSCF7358.JPG

The tapas consists of chicken wings, fried calamari, chicken spring rolls, onion rings, and mixed salads, served with BBQ sauce and Tartar sauce. The fried foods are crispy and tasty. The chicken wings are good, as well as the spring rolls. I can finish half portion of the platter :p

Aglio Olio Pasta (80k)

DSCF7391-01.jpegj

The smell of garlic and oregano makes me hungry. The pasta is tasty, but so spicy. It’s too hot for people who can’t eat spicy foods. Better to ask the waitress to decrease the chili.

Carbonara Pasta (90k)

DSCF7394-01.jpeg

The pasta is delicious with chicken, Shimeji mushroom, egg, and creamy sauce. The ‘heavy’ taste of the cream will make you full. I like the taste of mixed cream and parmesan cheese. Tasty and creamy!

Chicken Cordon Bleu (80k)

DSCF7397-01.jpeg

The battered chicken is well-seasoned and tasted so good with the sauce. The smoke beef and cheese are inside the chicken, making the dish even tastier.

Chicken Steak with Chili Garlic (120k)

DSCF7403-01.jpeg

This si just a normal chicken steak. Grilled chicken breast is served with mixed salad and french fries. The chicken is tender, griiled- aroma, and juicy. The sauce is spicy and has fried garlic aroma.

HALLOWEEN’S MENU

2017_1028_14051800.jpg

Black Fried Rice and Chicken Strips

2017_1028_13421000-01.jpeg

The black fried rice is placed inside a bowl in a pumpkin. The cute ‘Jack-O-Lantern’ is just perfect for your Halloween party. The rice tasted delicious with calamari pieces inside the rice. The portion is quite big for just one person.

Creamy Pumpkin Soup

DSCF7437.JPG

It is also served in a small ‘Jack-O-Lanter’ bowl. So cute! The cream soup is actually good, but it’s too cremay for me. The portion is suitable for 2-3 person for a starter. However, if you want this menu for the main course, I think the portion is just enough for 1 person.

Spaghetti ‘Eye’ Bolognaise

2017_1028_14044600-01.jpeg

The pasta is cute enough for me. The big eyes are made from boiled eggs and olive pieces. The food stylist is so creative to make an ordinary dish to be extraordinary! The taste is just like a regular bolognaise, not so sour (so good for me) and beefy.

Spider Lava Cake

2017_1028_14041400-01.jpeg

For the dessert, the lava cake is decorated as a cute spider! So creative! The choco lava is best eaten whilst it’s still hot. I tried this cake when it’s already cold, so I couldn’t give a valid review for this menu.

Finger Chocolate Mousse

2017_1028_14040400-01.jpeg

Consists of chocolate mousse, creme, strawberry jam, and chocolate garnish. This is my favorite dessert in Bistronomy. The fingers are made from biscuit, strawberry jam, and almond pieces. So cute and kinda a scary for us, though.

2017_1028_14042500-01.jpeg

Overall, Bistronomy is a perfect place for celebrating Halloween party. The ambience and the decorations are so nice and spooky. Dark and few of light. The foods are delicious and the price is still affordable, slightly pricey for some people. I really enjoyed spending my time with my girls, celebrating the best Halloween party ever!

Twin House, Cipete

On The Table Situation

Hello foodies! During the long weekend, my friends and I decided to spend our holiday in Twin House, Cipete, South Jakarta. The place is so instagramable with two identical yellow houses side by side. The area is not so big (it is so different from Instagram, though) and there is a space for picnic in the house yard! We were so exciting taking pictures outside and inside the house.

Picnic Corner

The yard

The house is not so spacious. Luckily, Twin House gave me the most instagramable corner! The corner is cute and there is a small swing at the corner. So sweet ♥

The cute swing

The Foods and drinks are good, especially the Nakula Iced Coffee and Sadewa Iced Coffee.

LRM_EXPORT_20170905_160141.jpg

Iced Cubed Coffee

The difference between them Nakula dan Sadewa Iced Coffee :

Nakula Coffee (40k)

LRM_EXPORT_20170903_215610-01.jpeg

Nakula Coffee has hazelnut flavoured milk to be mixed with the iced cubed coffee. For me, the aroma and taste of the hazelnut are not detected when you mix the milk with the cubes. When you drink it, you will taste the creamy, milky, and the sweetness of the coffee. So good! I don’t like coffee, I like this one! The coffee is not too strong and less sweet. Superb!

Sadewa Coffee (40k)

LRM_EXPORT_20170903_222048-01.jpeg

Sadewa coffee is the ‘twin’ of Nakula. The concept is same with Nakula. However, Sadewa coffee has caramel cinnamon flavoured milk. You can see the cinnamon powder on the surface of the milk. The smell of cinnamon is quite strong and when you mix the milk with the coffee cubes, you will taste the cinnamon. The coffee is well-blended with the cinnamon milk. The iced coffee is good if you like cinnamon. Since I don’t like cinnamon, I prefer the Nakula Coffee.

Cappucino (35k)

LRM_EXPORT_20170903_225918-01.jpeg

The Cappucino is beautiful! The latte art is the common leaf-type, but it looks cute inside a pink cup. The taste is standard, like any other cappucino. If you like sweet, you must add more sugar.

For the Food, we ordered 2 Asian Menus and 3 Western Menus :

The coffee corner

Dory Salsa Matah (40k)

LRM_EXPORT_20170903_230130-01.jpeg

The appearance is like common Indonesian food, consists of rice, sunny egg, bakwan, and fried dory with sambal matah on top. The sambal matah is quite good, the more you eat it, you will sense the hotness. For me, the taste is quite tasty and the portion is enough for fulfilling your hunger.

Nasi Kebon with Churry Chicken Katsu (50k)

LRM_EXPORT_20170903_230305-01.jpeg

The appearance is dominated by yellow curry and green lettuce. Just like the name : Kebon (garden). The chicken katsu is on top of the rice. The taste is so-so, not my favorite.

Penne Alfredo Sauce with Salmon (50k)

LRM_EXPORT_20170903_230527-01.jpeg

This one is so creamy and milky. The salmon pieces are generous. For me, I cannot finish 1 portion since it is too creamy.

Penne with Animal Sauce (50k)

LRM_EXPORT_20170903_230825-01.jpeg

The penne is cooked with bolognese sauce. Better this one than the former one. For me, the dish is so-so, nothing special.

Monterey Chicken (60k)

I did not take the picture because this dish took so long to be served. The taste is quite delicious. The chicken is perfectly grilled with the melted mozzarella on top of it. This one is my favorite!

Overall, Twin House is a very good place for celebrating important moments; enjoying your time with your friends and family, or you can spend your time with your loved ones. The foods are not as good as I expected and the price is quite pricey. However, the iced cubed coffee is so good! For once in a lifetime, you can spend your weekend in Twin House. You can try the picnic spot to enjoy the nature and good ambience. Better to reserve  2 weeks before the Day (it was so crowded very weekends).

Otaru Secret Cheese Tart

Otaru Secret Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Hello dessert lovers! A new Japanese cheese tart with premium ingredients are newly opened in Pejaten Village. Their own signature menu is the Japanese Cheese Tart and Cheese Tea.

2017_0827_16220200-01.jpeg

DSCF3446.JPG

The differences between the cheese tart form Otaru Secret with the other Japanese cheese tarts are:

  • Otaru Secret’s cheese tarts are not melted cheese-type. Instead, it is like a cheese bomb
  • The filling is soft and plenty. They use premium cheese recipe from Japan.
  • The crust is crisp, but producing much crumbs when you bite the crust
  • There are 3 flavors: Original, Yoghurt, and Blueberry Cheese Tarts.

The taste of the Original flavour is dominated by the cream cheese, like Camembert cheese. So tasty! Try them in cold condition. For me, they tasted better!

2017_0827_16215000-01.jpeg

The Blueberry Cheese Tart is my favorite since I like blueberry. The taste of the blueberry is well-balanced with the cream cheese.

The Yoghurt Cheese Tart is a unique flavor for me. The sourness of the yoghurt balances the creaminess of the cheese. So fresh and new experience for me!

2017_0827_16284100-01.jpeg

Otaru Secret gives 500 pcs of free cheese tart at the grand opening of the outlet in Pejaten Village. So, for you who come on that time, you are lucky to try out their best cheese tart!

Affordable price with premium ingredients, why not?

Pablo Cheese Cheese Ice Cream VS Ezo Cheesecake Camembert Ice Cream

Pablo Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Hello dessert lovers! It’s been a while since I wrote my article about “Hokkaido Baked VS Hokkaido Baby Cheese Tarts”. If you have not read that article, you can directly click HERE. Hope you guys could decide which one is the best ♥

Now, I’m eager to compare the popular cheese ice cream between Pablo’s and Ezo’s.

2017_0424_16511700-01.jpeg

PABLO CHEESE TART’S ICE CREAM

Coming from Osaka, Japan, Pablo Cheese Tart has gained its popularity in South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippine, Singapore, and Indonesia. In Japan, the Pablo’s store in Shinsaibashi is always full of crowd from morning till noon. Good news for all people in Jakarta! You can taste the famous cheese tarts in 3 stores: Gandaria City Mall,  Neo Soho Mall, and Kelapa Gading Mall (the newest store). I hope Pablo would open a store in Malaysia, since I often go to that country.

Pablo has many menus besides the cheese tart, such as Frute and Soft Cheese Ice Cream. For the ice cream, they have 2 flavors : Cheese and Matcha Cheese. I have tried both of them. The cheese flavor is quite good, milky, creamy, cheesy, and bold. The texture of the ice cream is soft, but thick. When you eat it, you can taste the boldness of the cheese, creamy, and a little bit sour left behind (aftertaste). The ice cream is also not easy to melt.

For the matcha ice cream, the cheese flavor is more dominant than the matcha taste. The matcha tasted a little bit astringent and bold. So, it  can reduce the creaminess of the cheese. I like this flavor more than the original cheese flavor because I can eat one portion without feeling too much. The matcha and cheese flavor combined perfectly.

EZO CHEESECAKE’S ICE CREAM

Ezo Cheesecake is come form Hokkaido, Japan. The small cheese cakes are filled with the cheese bomb on the bottom. There are many flavors for the cheese tarts, such as lemon yuzu, Nutella, Ovomaltine, Espresso, Matcha, etc. Ezo uses the ingredients imported form Japan for the baked goods. MAde form natural ingredient and baked fresh daily to bring out the best flavour available on the store shelves everyday. Now, you can visit Ezo’s store in PIK, Taman Anggrek Mall, and Kelapa Gading Mall, Jakarta.

Different from Pablo, Ezo Cheesecake has only one flavor of the ice cream. The Camembert ice cream from Ezo Cheesecake! Most of you have tried this one, I guess. The cheese tasted like immatured camembert cheese. The creamy and sour taste are left in your mouth. The ice cream is similar with Pablo’s. In terms of texture, the ice cream is also soft and thick. The taste are bold, milky, and creamy. The ice cream is filled inside the cone from top to the bottom. In affordable price, you can enjoy this tasty ice cream.

Screenshot_20170419-230601-01.jpeg

 

PABLO CHEESE TART’S VS EZO CHEESECAKE’S ICE CREAM

1. The Taste

We are comparing the original cheese ice cream from Pablo and the Camembert ice cream from Ezo. In terms of taste, both of them tasted like real cheese. For Ezo’s, it is more specific, which is the Camembert Cheese. As for Pablo’s, judging from the smell and taste, it is more likely Cheddar type (in my opinion).  Actually, both of the are really good and have similar taste.

Winner: It is a tie.

2. The Flavor variants

In terms of flavor variants, Pablo Cheese Tart wins over Ezo Cheese Cake. Pablo has original and matcha, while Ezo has only one flavor: the original flavor.

Winner: Pablo’s ice cream

3 The Price

As for the price, Ezo’s ice cream (IDR 20k) is cheaper than Pablo’s (IDR 35k). It’s almost half of the Pablo’s price.

Winner: Ezo’s ice cream

CONCLUSION: BOTH ARE GOOD! IT’S A TIE!

Overall, both of them are very good. The cheese ice cream is unique and made form fresh ingredients. However, I prefer to have Ezo’s Camembert ice cream since  it tasted lighter and could easily finish one portion. If you want to save more money, than choose Ezo’s ice cream. If you don’t care about the price of the food, then you can go for Pablo’s and try both flavors. It depends on your own perception. For economical reason, you can always choose the cheapier one with high quality.

Samsara Restaurant – Modern Indonesian Cuisine

Samsara Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Hello food lovers! Samsara baru buka nih di Senopati, tepatnya di seberang H Gourmet. Dilihat dari luar, bangunanya seperti sebuah rumah mewah. Masuk ke dalam, kita akan disambut dengan para waiter dan waitress. Sekilas, mirip sebuah rumah yang direnovasi menjadi restoran dengna private dining area di balik tirai (di bagian belakang). Di bagian tengan ada semacam bar untuk menyajikan minuman dan free takjil saat berbuka puasa.  Gw suka dekor seperti ini karena berasa homey dan pewe buat duduk lama2. Suasananya juga cocok untuk party, event, maupun romantic dinner.

DSCF9804.JPG

Dining area

Untuk makanannya, porsinya imut2 dan buat gw ga kenyang makan 1 porsi 
Buat yg porsi makannya sedikit, sepertinya sih pas2 aja porsinya.
Kita cobain hampir semua menu yang ada di Samsara mulai dari Nasi Bambu Samsara, Nasi Jagung Bambu, Bebek Bengil Ubud, Pangsit Udang kuah gulai, Tahu Telor, Dendeng Jamur, Sop Buntut, Nasi Liwet Kendi, Nasi Goreng Iga Kambing Bakar, Getuk Gnocchi Foie gras (I love it!), dan aneka dessert (semua dessert udah dicoba sih).

Bebek Bengil Ubud

 

DSCF9851-01.jpeg

Durian Lovers

Favorite gw: Sop Buntut (unik, kuahnya di botol, dan rasanya cukup enak), Bebek Bengil (bebeknya crispy dan ga bau amis), Getuk Gnocchi Foie gras, Klappertaart, dan Es Podeng. Dessert yg unik di sini adalah Es podengnya karena dipresentasikan dalam bentuk choco bomb yg akan melted dengan siraman saus karamel. Enak!

Nasi Bambu Samsara

Sop Buntut

Klappertaart

DSCF9760-01.jpeg

Drinks Corner

Untuk minumannya cobain Exquisite Passion yang seger, manis, asem. Ada juga Lavish Lychee dan Blushing Berry untuk mocktail yg manis dan ga terlalu asem.

Overall, konsep Indonesian fine dining di sini bisa dibilang cukup bagus. Makanannya cukup enak, tapi sayangnya servicenya agak lama. Porsinya juga agak kecil ya buat gw. Nilai plusnya, presentasi makanan cantik, menunya ada yg fusion dengan western style, tempatnya juga cantik untuk foto2 maupun untuk party, dan suasananya tenang. Buat yg penasaran, silakan mencoba!

Bluegrass Bar & Grill

Bluegrass Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Calling all meat lovers! Bluegrass Bar & Grill has been for years as a fine dining concept restaurant located next to Epicentrum Mall, Rasuna Said, Kuningan, Jakarta. It is a good place for hangout, romantic dinner, and for special occasions such as Valentine’s Day and Christmas. Bluegrass and Lemongrass are under one company, is it? The design looks similar, greeny park at the outside area, but still the beauty-romantic touch crafted in the indoor part.

The ceiling was high, typical a glass house concept. The bar is located in the middle of the indoor area with stylish design. Love it ♥

20151225_144814.jpg

The atmosphere (indoor)

The atmosphere is quiet windy at the outside and calm in the inside. Sometimes, there is live band during weekends and special occasions. I think it is perfect for you who would like to celebrate something special with your loved ones. I spent my last Christmas at Bluegrass and so satisfied!

20151225_144706-01.jpeg

Simply, I like the presentation. especially the colour combination. The dory pieces are crispy and so soft in the inside. However, the butter rice is not so good enough to make me be addicted. Overall, the dish is quiet good although it is not my favorite one.

GRILLED SIRLOIN

20151225_144649-01-01.jpeg

I love this dish! From the presentation, it looks tempting. The sirloin is tender and half-done. Not a fan of meat, but I know the steak is delicious for the meat lovers. Juicy, meaty, beefy, and quiet fatty. The spice well-mixed with the meat. For meat lovers, I recommend this dish for you 🙂

SAUSAGE PLATTER

20170617_231514.png

Sausage feast! I think it can be your snack for 4 persons. The bratwurst is so yummy! So meaty, juicy, and fatty. The mayo sauce tasted sweet, creamy, and little bit spicy for me. Tasted well with the bratwurst pieces! The pork knuckle is not good enough since the texture is lack of juiciness and the outer part is hard. My favorite part is the potato wrapped with bacon and fries. So tasty!

BANANA BRULEE

Screenshot_20170615-225545-01.jpeg

The dessert looks tempting. I’m a dessert lover! The caramel taste is good and well- blended with the banana. Sweet, roasted, and burnt sensation into one. Served well with the ice cream. Better to pour rhum for this!

Overall, if you are looking for a restaurant with good food and fancy place, you can go to Bluegrass. The price is fair enough with similar fine dining restaurants. For the price, it’s quiet competitive with other similar restaurants. Having dinner in a romantic garden in a big city. Why not?
