2019_0208_15422800-01.jpeg
Jakarta: pandan Cake – ada pandan paste di tengahnya yg harum dan manis, luarnya dicoating white chocolate warna hijau muda
Savoy: Battenberg cake – Cakenya spt lapis tikar dan di luarnya dicoating white chocolate, unik dan manis.
Singapore: chocolate Hazelnut Almond – Crispy almond cakenya dan aku suka bgt choco hazelut cream di tengahnya, jadi udah pasti aku suka cake ini
Dubai : Raspberry Delight – Asam dan segar. Raspberrynya ada di setiap layer cakenya dan aku ga terlalu suka asam, so this is not my favorite one.
Toronto : Lemon Meringue – Merriguenya berasa lemonnya sih, tp nothing special.
Barcelona : Raspberry Cream Macaron – super pretty presentasi macaronnay! Jadi, macaronnya besar, gabisa sekali masuk mulut ya. Like any other macarons, udha pasti manis banget, tp dibalancing sama raspberry fruit di tengahnya. Bikin jadi ga eneg. Yummy!
New York : Cheese cake – classic cheese cake yg simple, tapi enak.
Bali Sanur: Peanut butter Chocolate Tabanan Cake – Aku suka yg ini karena perpaduan peanut butter dan cakenya pas.
Shanghai: Lychee Mousse Tart – Menurutku ga berasa lychee nya ya, tp moussenya soft banget, jadi teksturnya light.
San Fransisco : Mud brownies – browniesnya manis, chewy, tp layer luarnya garing

Lewis & Carroll Tea, Thamrin

Lewis & Carroll Flower Market Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Hello high tea lovers! I was invited to attend a Royal High Tea, held by the popular jewellery brand : Adelle Jewellery. Lewis & Carroll Tea Flower Market is located inside the Central Dept. Store, near the Crystal Jade Resto. You can spot easily with all the beautiful flowers in front of the cafe.

The place is not so big, but I like the simple-minimalist design. The place is beautifully decorated with the flowers. A good place for phostoshoot of course.

We ordered some of the new menus from Lewis & Carroll Tea for the Royal High Tea Party.

Mad Tea Party (185k)

2017_0923_15093400-01.jpeg
It consists of 6 pieces of mochi with 3 flavours : chocolate, matcha, and black sesame. I love the matcha. For me, the sesame taste is too strong for mochi. This set is served with 2 kinds of tea.

Panna Cotta (depends on The Flavour)

DSCF5126.JPG
There are 3 flavours on my plate : vanilla bean, matcha, and nutella. For me, the matcha and nutella are the best. The authentic matcha taste can be detected. The nutella panna cotta is also good and not too sweet, but after you eat one piece of this flavor, you will get full.

Japanese Salad (55k)

DSCF5127.JPG
Mixed of fresh vegetables, including wakame on top with sour apple dressing. It is tasty and fresh! It neutralizes all the sweet tastes from the dessert.

Truffle fries (50k)

DSCF5128.JPG
All fries lovers will love this! The fries are crispy and seasoned well, especially with the truffle. So yummy!

Bruschetta Beef (65k)

DSCF5186.JPG
The bruschetta is good with lots of beef and melted cheese on top.the bolognaise beef is quite good.

Potato Skin with Guacamole (45k)

DSCF5119.JPG
The baked potato with skin is filled with broccoli and mayo, completed with half-boiled egg and melted cheese on top. So tasty!

Tea Omakase (80k)

2017_0923_14340100-01.jpeg
The tea selection on Tea Omakase are Houjicha (green tea), Island Cordial (mango, pineapple), Red Ruby Skies (elderberries, hibiscus), Happy Summer Day (peach, mint), and Snow Owl (silver needle white tea) . I love the Red Ruby Skies, judging from the aroma and taste. Fruity and floral notes. All of the tea is served cold.

2017_0923_14524500-01.jpeg

Overall, the place is good for hangout and high tea event. We really enjoyed our tea time there. All of foods and drinks are quite good. However, the service is not so good. Maybe due to the full tables when we held the party there. needs to improve their service. The price is a little bit pricey, but still reasonable.
Have a good tea time!

Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart vs Hokkaido Baby

Hokkaido Baby Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Many questions about “what is the difference between Hokkaido Baked and Hokkaido Baby ?” appeared on my IG’s DM few days ago. That’s why I’m writing this review to erase your curiosity 🙂 Hope you guys could decide which one is the best ♥

2017-03-13 07.07.00 1-01.jpeg

Coming from Malaysia (the original one from Japan is actually called “Bake from Hokaido”), Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart and Hokkaido Baby have been so famous in ASEAN, especially Indonesia. There are 3 outlets of Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart in Indonesia : Kota Kasablanka Mall, Kelapa Gading Mall, and Senayan City Mall. However, there are only two outlets of Hokkaido Baby in Jakarta, which are located in Pondok Indah Mall and Neo Soho Mall. There are 2 more outlets in Surabaya : Galaxy Mall and Tunjungan Plaza. Both of them are very popular of their signature tart : the melted cheese tart.

The queue line for both Hokkaido Baked and Hokkaido Baby are so long, like hours. Now, you can buy them in the big malls in Jakarta. Let’s start comparing ♥

Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart

2017_0309_18180000-01.jpeg

Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart

Soft and creamy cheese with a great texture of the tart. Not too hard, not too soft. The cheese is thick, but directly melts in your mouth. So creamy in the right proportion. Actually, the taste is milky, more like keju manis. The pie crust was crispy, but firm. It’s thicker than any kind of egg tart.

In Indonesia, Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart has only one flavor, which is the Original (Cheese). In Singapore and Malaysia, they have other flavor variants such as chocolate and durian. I tasted the original flavor form Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur. Honestly, I prefer the one form KL. The tart is crispier and the cheese is creamier and thicker as compared the one from Jakarta. However, the chocolate tart is not as good as the original.

Hokkaido Baby

The only one Hokkaido Baby outlet is at Pondok Indah Mall, Jakarta. So, it’s better to taste it directly at the outlet. There are 4 flavor variants : Cheese, Chocolate, Matcha, and Salted Egg.  The filling is runnier than Hokkaido Baked. I like the pie crust. Crispy and thinner. The pie crust is so fragile. So, watch out when you do your first bite 🙂

20170309_192036.jpg

Hokkaido Baby Cheese

The cheese flavor is creamy, cheesy, and melted directly in your mouth. The salted egg flavor is good, but not my favorite one. The chocolate flavor is not so good and the match is quiet good, but not my favorite one.

Hokkaido Baked vs Hokkaido Baby

 1. Pie Crust

The difference can be tasted from the pie crust. The base or crust is good and crunchy for both them. However, I prefer Hokkaido Baby’s since the crust is crunchier and thinner. Effortlessly in chewing it in my mouth. Actually, the crust of Hokkaido Baked is good, but too thick for a cheese tart.

2. The Filling

The filling from Hokkaido Baked is thick, bold, and tasty. Not sweet, but not salty. On the other hand, the filling of Hokkaido Baby Tart is watery, to a point it’s like cream fillings. It has a very good aroma, simply because once they finish reheat it, they brush it with butter or margarine so it smells so good. In terms of the filling, I prefer Baked Cheese Tart because the filling is thicker and not too runny. I think the filling from Hokkaido Baby is too watery for a tart filling.

3. The Flavor variants

In terms of flavor variants, Hokkaido Baby wins over Hokkaido Baked in Indonesia. They have more flavor variants as compared to Hokkaido Baked which has only one flavor.

In Indonesia, for me Hokkaido Baby wins over Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart. However, it depends on your preference liking. Many people also like thicker crust and thicker filling.

Moreover, you must bite the cheese tarts directly after you pay them. Otherwise, the taste and texture will be different when you eat it at home. Eat it while it still warm 🙂

20170121_143627.jpg20170121_143520.jpg20170121_143557.jpg

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.

images (15).jpg2017_0121_14014600-01

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.

1st floor (Source: @jakarta100bars)

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.

2017_0121_14004400-01.jpeg

2nd Floor

2017_0121_14024200-01.jpeg

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 ♥

2017_0121_14031000(2)-01.jpeg

2nd Floor Outdoor

DSCF0906-01.jpeg

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.

2017_0121_14303400-01.jpeg

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.

20170121_142407-01.jpeg

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.

DSCF0658-01.jpeg

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.

2017_0121_14191000-01.jpeg

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.

DSCF0770-01.jpeg

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!

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.

20170108_154902-02.jpeg

Me and friends 🙂

20170108_150102-02.jpeg

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.

IMG_20170108_140841_479.jpg

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.

20170108_142945-01.jpeg

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.

20170108_143300-02.jpeg

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.

20170108_142512-02.jpeg

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.

IMG_20170108_142422_378-02.jpeg

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.

20170108_142853-01-01.jpeg

Broadway Style Egg’s Benedict (135k)

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 🙂

20170108_142231-02.jpeg

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.

17-01-10-11-33-30-597_deco.jpg

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.

20170108_143324-02.jpeg

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!

Leaf Connoisseur by Tea Et Al Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

It’s Christmas time! My favorite day in a whole year ♥

Have you decided where to go for Christmas celebration with your lovers and friends? I hope my review could help you ☺

16-12-17-19-07-41-457_deco-01.jpeg

Introducing a new hidden gem in Pacific Place Mall, inside the Galleries of Lafayette (it’s my favorite department store ♥). Maybe some people have not known that there is a small restaurant at the back of the dept store, located at the first level, besides the VIP toilet. I know this place from Anastasia Siantar’s instagram. This gorgeous lady helps me to find a place for small Christmas (private) celebration.

20161217_154405.jpg

The Interior

Leaf Connoisseur by Tea Et Al is a new tea salon and tea boutique that offers world class teas and affordable fine dining experience in a cozy atmosphere. This place features a medium spaced area with clean and modern yet elegant interior. Each table has a sweeping view of SCBD’s skyscraper and Jakarta’s skyline, making Tea et Al a comfortable place to enjoy your life.

Behind the concept of Tea Et Al is the Founder & CEO A. N. Gunarto, who has drawn on decades of traditional expertise gleaned from her family’s tea business established in 1952 to create this pioneering brand. Her passion and experience with tea, as well as her profound appreciation of its cultural significance and her cosmopolitan upbringing, have infused the brand with unique purpose and vision, as well giving her deep insight into the needs of the modern generation. No wonder the tea tasted great!

The waitress are very kind and polite, yet you will be treated like a princess. The service is very good, refilling your empty tea pot, bringing the tea samples before ordering, and changing your empty plate. The ambient is quiet good, peaceful, and relaxing. The Christmas songs filled the elegant tea salon with joy.

I ordered 2 main courses and 1 package of tea set for lunch. There were some promotions if you pay with certain credit cards. While you are waiting for the food, a set of welcome bread served as a compliment. The whole grain bread tasted so good with the butter.

20161217_143043-01.jpeg

Complimentary bread and Peach Moonlight tea

Peach moonlight is the name of the tea that I ordered. The smell is like sweet peach and tasted a lil’ bit sour, fresh, and sweet. The brownish-coloured tea tasted better with the sweet cakes. Another tea that my friend ordered was Honey Dew. The sweet smell will make you relax and the taste was like a slice of sweet honey-dew (melon). I love this one!

The main courses were tasted at first. The penne was very tasty, al dente, and thus the texture was perfect. The mushroom tasted delicious, meaty-texture, and cooked well with the sauce. The chicken cubes were marinated and tasted good with the pasta. The portion was not as small as it looks like on the plate, quite big enough for a lady to finish the dish by herself. The red-wine cream sauce made it perfect!

20161217_143918-01

Penne Da Vinci (92k)

The Club Sandwich consists of 4 pieces of small sandwiches and a small bucket of sweet-potato fries, instead of french fries. It is very rare to find that fries in Indonesia since most restaurants serve french fries as the snack. At first, I doubted the sweet-potato fries would have a good taste. When I bite the fries, I’m lovin it ♥ It is the best fries I’ve ever tasted, more than french fries. It tasted sweet, delicious, and be addicted! Meanwhile, the sandwich was quiet good. Whole grain bread was toasted and mixed with the beef ham, radish, cheese slice, sunny egg, and tomato sliced. The bread was crispy on the surface and soft in the inside. So yummy! Suitable for people who want to eat tasty food without being worry to get fat.

Club Sandwich (95k)

The high tea package was served at last of dessert. The were 2 kinds of packaged : Lady-Like Style (235k ++) and Ritzy Style 315k++. The difference was just the amount of cakes and the type of tea you must order. I chose the former package since it would fit the portion of 3 ladies.

The cakes were placed inside the small gold birdcage (3-tier). The top tier consisted of sweet cakes : red velvet, matcha cheesecake, tiramisu, and a small eclair. I like the matcha cheesecake since it was creamy, less sweet, and fresh aroma. The middle tier consisted of savory cakes, such as tuna croissant, beef pie, and chicken puffs. I like the pie crust and the taste was good. The bottom tier consisted of a small shrimp quiche and a scone with strawberry jam and cream. I like the quiche, but it was too small 😦
