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.


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



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!

Sop Buntut




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!

Cafe Thirty Three by Mirasari

Cafe Thirty Three by Mirasari Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Hello Food Lovers! This time I was invited to dine in Cafe 33 by Mirasa, Kemang. It is a hidden gem in Kemang, near the Abunawas. I celebrated my Valentine in this modern-classic cafe. Cafe Thirty Three is the new generation of Mirasari, which was a very popular restaurant since 1978.



The Outdoor

The cafe was located inside a house with a touch of Indonesian culture. The interior was awesome, a nice wooden facade. Inside, the Turkish chandelier made the cafe even more romantic. This place was suitable for birthday celebration, bridal shower, romantic dinner, and even for wedding reception. The classic-elegant decoration will make you want to take some photos. The place was quiet instagrammable.  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 ♥

The price of the food and drinks were quiet affordable as compared to any other cafes around Kemang. The portion was standard (quiet small for me :p) We ordered both  Asian and Western Menus.


My Lunch Menu

While waiting for the food, you will be served with 4 small pieces of bread with margarine. The bread was quiet good, but the margarine was not so good for me.


Complimentary bread

For the Asian menu, I tried the Dory Sambal Matah with Rice. Looking from its appearance, it was quiet tempting, although it was too oily for me.The aroma of sambal matah was so good and the taste was delicious! The dory was not fishy and tender.Not too soft, but still bite-able. I love this dish ♥


Dory Sambal Matah (87k)

For the Western menu, I tried the Prawn Aglio Olio Pasta. The aroma was so good, garlic and oregano combined into one. The prawn so good, as well as the spaghetti. A little bit too salty for the pasta, but it’s okay. For you who like aglio olio, I suggest you to try it. The hotness level can be chose between No Spicy / Spicy / Super Spicy.


Prawn Aglio Olio (85k)

For the drink and dessert, I chose Green Tea Panna Cotta and Choco Milk Shake. The milkshake was good, quiet thick, and not too sweet. A Perfect companion to celebrate Valentine ♥


Choco Milk Shake (42k)

Here comes the panna cotta. Judging from the look, the panna cotta was so small with a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream. I think I was wrong, since the panna cotta was very very thick and could fulfill your dessert-tummy. The texture was hard (for a pudding) and the taste was good. The sweet from the ice cream and the matcha was well-balanced. The green tea syrup tasted like the original green tea. Superb!


Green Tea Panna Cotta (45k)

I enjoyed my time in Cafe Thirty Three by Mirasa. The place was so cozy, not crowded, and calm. The food was quiet delicious and the price was quiet affordable for a fine dining concept. I recommend this place either for a casual lunch, dinner, or for a celebration. I think the place is good for dating ♥

Happy Valentine all!

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.

Private VIP Room

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!
