Photo Editing Tips #1 : VSCO

Hello guys! Since many of you are eager to know of how to edit your photo to look more fabulous, I encourage myself to make this blog post for you. Instagram has become a media of portfolio for some people in doing commercial business, especially for endorsement. The better the quality of your photos, more likes are coming and more users see your portfolio. Thus, a good looking photos are necessary.

There are many tools to edit your photos, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, PicsArt, Snapseed, VSCO, Face Tune, etc. You can download the photo editor apps via Play Store. Some of them are free and you can directly use it to edit your photo. I suggest you should download VSCO and Snapseed because they are easy to use, simpler, and applicable for newbie. For Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, they are more complicated, but I love them! Let’s start with the simplest one : VSCO!

VSCO is the simplest photo editing app in your smartphone. It’s easy to use, offers you a range of free filters, and manual adjustment. Filters are necessary to build your Instagram’s feed. Perhaps, most of you have realized that building a theme on your Instagram’s feed is similar to building a portfolio/image of yourself.

LRM_EXPORT_20180308_224439.jpg

The first step of using VSCO is choosing your own preset (filter). There are more than 86 presets available. Fifteen are free in app and the rest are available for purchase. Honestly, I rarely use VSCO filter in editing my photos since I like the manual adjustment more than just using a single tap of choosing a filter. However, if you are a newbie, than I encourage you to use presets to ease the photo editing.

PRESETS / FILTERS

I will share you some of my favorite presets. I like the bright tone and film-like tone, so I choose these presets to share with you.

The Analog/Aesthetics Collection (A1-A6)

The Aesthetics Series is one of the most popular presets in VSCO. Many bloggers use this filter since it will give slight fading and higher contrast. The result will look natural, thus it is suitable for food photography, interior, or OOTD photos. The most favorite filter from Aesthetic Collection is A6. Sometimes, I use A5 and A6. The latter filter (A6) will make your photos looked warmer, more vintage, and brownish tone. I suggest you to do some manual adjustments after you do any kind of filter. Tips: adjusting about 75% from the max value to get your image looks good, but not over-edited.

20180308_225016.jpg

Hypebeast x VSCO (HB1, HB2)

This preset is my favorite since it will give more contrast tone, cooler tint, but darker than Aesthetic preset. Both HB1 and HB2 are free. More adjustment on the Temperature or Saturation to make your photo become warmer. Some people dislike bluish tint on their photos.

20180116_081309.jpg

F Series: Mellow / Fade (F1-F3)

The F series will give you elegant result. That’s why I like this preset.  F1, F2, and F3 excel at beautiful skin tones and quiet everyday moments. F2 is available free in your VSCO app.

20180118_220246.jpg

C Series: Vibrant Classic (C1-C3)

This preset is super vibrant or super chromatic. The C1 to C3 are timeless and good for photography. Sometimes, I use this preset for darker-cool photos. Too much bluish tint on your photo will ruin the result. This preset could help your photo looked warmer and cheerful.

20180118_220122.jpg

Varying in tones, sentiment, and subject matter, the gorgeous moments below (in the next section) are laudable examples of photos recently shared to VSCO Grid and processed using the presets in The Minimalist Collection.

MANUAL ADJUSTMENT

In some cases, you need to do manual adjustment tools (besides using filter) to correct the brightness, finding the best tune on your photos, sharpening, adjusting the Temperature, and many more. These are some more tips for the essential manual tweaks:

20180115_232030.jpg

For better image, use Perspective and Straighten, after you do Crop the picture. Try to focus on your image. Capture the best thing or moment and make it in detail. Clarity can be used to make your image clearer, emphasizing the details. You can also choose Sharpen for your final touch.

PhotoGrid_1516287098433-01.jpeg

I always use Exposure (between 0 to 0.7) to make my image brighter without losing any details. Then, use Contrast if it’s needed to reduce or increase the contrast between light and dark portions of an image. Too much contrast is not good.PhotoGrid_1520525882106.jpg

20180115_231953-01

After that, you can adjust the Temperature, Tint, or Skin tone to give your image cooler or warmer tint. This will make your image more vintage or cooler.

Shadow Save is needed if you want to brighten a dark photo, while Highlight Save is needed to soften the bright areas of your image.

PhotoGrid_1516119581782.jpg

Adjust the Grain if you want to add a bit of film-style coarseness to an image. You have to find a good balance to keep the details of your image and still make it to look amazing!

Okay, I hope this simple tutorial will help you to edit your photo. It does not matter if your photos are not captured by a DSLR or mirrorless camera. Photos captured by your phone camera are also amazing! Try to edit your photo and voila! It will look like it was captured by a real camera :p

LUVENUS Fragrance Moisturizing Lotion

Calling all the beautiful ladies for this good news! Kali ini gw punya skin care product yang cocok buat para wanita yang ingin kulitnya halus, lembut, selalu lebab, dan harum, yaitu body lotion yang namanya LUVENUS. Ini bukan body lotion biasa loh! Yuk simak review gw tentang body lotion yang satu ini.
2018_0220_22190900-01
Saat terima produknya, gw suka banget dengan packagingnya yang memiliki kesan feminine, cantik, dan lux. Box-nya feminine banget, khusus dibuat untuk para wanita aktif yang punya segudang aktif yang ga takut berkeringat dan mengeluarkan bau badan ga sedap di tengah keramaian.
2018_0220_22452800-01.jpeg
LUVENUS Fragrance Moisturizing Lotion diproduksi  oleh PT. Strata Bintang Surya di Deli Serdang, Indonesia, dan didistribusikan oleh PT. Sejahtera Bersama Sempurnah. Kamu bisa lihat informasinya di botol body lotion bagian belakang. 
2018_0220_22250600-01.jpeg
So pretty! But, Is It Safe For My Body?
It’s totally safe, ladies! Luvenus Lotion ini sudah terdaftar dalam produk BPOM yang telah melalui analisa ketat. Kamu bisa cek No. MD produknya di SINI. No. MD tersebut juga tercantum di bagian belakang kemasan lotionnya.
What Are The Benefit of Luvenus For Me?
Luvenus Fragrance Moisturizing Lotion cocok untuk kulit kering dan normal karena dapat menghaluskan, melembutkan, dan memberikan keharuman mewah yang tahan lama. Wanginya ga terlalu kuat, tapi memang harum dan tahan lama di kulitku. Ga perlu pakai parfum lagi nih. Secara, gw ga suka wewangian kuat seperti parfum dan gw prefer pakai lotion yang harum. Namun, lotion dengan parfum harganya mahal dan mengandung zat kimia dan paraben yang bahaya bagi tubuh.
 2018_0220_22175700-01.jpeg
Luvenus Lotion ini FREE FROM PARABEN! Nilai plus banget nih. Buat yang masih belum tahu paa itu paraben, sebnarnya hampir semua kosmetik dan farmasi. Paraben digunakan sebagai pengawet pada produk kosmetik dan farmasi untuk membantu mencegah timbulnya jamur dan bakteri, dan menjaga kualitas produk. Banyak produk perawatan yang mengandung paraben, seperti shampoo, gel cukur, pelumas, farmasi, riasan wajah, losion dan pasta gigi. Sebenarnya, paraben aman kok di tubuh jika terkandung dalam jumlah yang sesuai batas. Sayangnya, banyak kosmetik yang memasukkan zat ini berlebihan sehingga menimbulkan dampak buruk bagi kesehatan tubuh. Nah, kamu ga perlu khawatir lagi dengan bahaya dari paraben kalo kamu pakai lotion Luvenus ini.
What About The Texture?
Teksturnya kental dan tidak lengket di kulit, malah kulit jadi halus abis pakai lotion ini. Cukup 1 titik kecil ini bisa untuk 1 tangan dari ujung jari hingga lengan atas. Hemat banget ya! Dalam 1 kemasan terkandung 200 ml lotion. Banyak dan hemat!
2018_0220_22341100-01.jpeg
2018_0220_22430600-01.jpeg
What Are The Fragrance’s of The Lotion?
LUVENUS Fragrance Moisturizing Lotion sampai saat ini memiliki dua varian yaitu: Moroccan Rose dan White Musk. Ke depannya akan dikembangkan varian baru dengan wewangian yang tidak kalah baiknya. Gw suka banget 2 fragrance ini!
Moroccan Rose lebih mirip parfum wanita premium; feminine; dan mirip salah satu parfum kesukaan gw. Bener2 feminine deh wanginya!
2018_0220_22380100-01.jpeg
White Musk lebih mild dan calm. Wanginya pun segar dan menenangkan seperti memberikan sugesti positif karena wanginya benar-benar bikin relax.
Namun jika harus memilih, gw pilih Whie Musk karena gw lebih suka wangi yang fresh dan cocok untuk gw yang lebih banyak beraktivitas di area terbuka. Wanginya yang mild bikin relax dan confident saat harus melakukan aktivitas di luar.
2018_0220_22424300-01.jpeg
Wow! Sounds Interesting! So, Where Can I Buy Them?
2018_0220_22321100-01.jpeg
2018_0220_22410400-01.jpeg
Kamu dapetin produk ini melalui Instagramnya di @luvenus.id atau membelinya via Shopee, Tokopedia, Lazada, dan juga Bukalapak dengan harga Rp 25,000 – 30,000. Wow, harganya terjangkau, manfaatnya luar biasa ♥ Buruan beli dan pilih Moroccan Rose atau White Musk?
LUVENUS Fragrance Moisturizing
PRICE     : IDR 25k – 30k
SHOP      : SHOPEE, TOKOPEDIA, LAZADA, BUKALAPAK, & INSTAGRAM@luvenus.id

Travel Outfit in Bogor

Maybe it’s a little bit too late to say:

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!

WISHING ALL OF YOU A BLESSING YEAR AHEAD AND BE MORE SUCCESSFUL!

I hope that I could be more positive in this year, be more grateful with what I have and receive as well as giving more than receiving. I just want to be happier and the others could feel the same way. For me, 2017 is a rough year to be a food blogger and I hope I can expand my blog not only about food, but also fashion, travel, photography, and beauty. As a woman, I could not deny myself that I really into fashion and beauty. Sometimes, I wish I could had more time to do different kind of makeup styles.

To start a new year, I went to Bogor for my short escape. Just to refresh my mind out of my heavy work and to think about my resolutions in 2018. I don’t want to just make the resolution, but I want to make them all happen, especially about photography. I did not realize that I love photography! Perhaps, photography tips on my blog? :p

Here are my travel outfit in Bogor. Hope you like my simple outfit 🙂

P.S: Sorry if you don’t like to see myself wearing a pair of sandals. For me, comfortable is No.1! In Bogor, you cannot predict when the rain comes. One day, suddenly the rain comes when we were in a small forest. If I wore wedges/high heels, I could get myself into a mess.

Tips: wearing your best sneakers, flat shoes, or just flippers in traveling. They are your best friends. You could find the pretty slippers in THIS IS APRIL or BERRYBENKA. They sell good leather slippers and comfy shoes with such affordable price 🙂

Once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY TRAVEL 🙂

How To Look Sophisticated With Simple Outfit

Hello fashion lovers! I just want to share about my fashion tips with simple outfit. You don’t have to wear skirt just to be fashionable and chic. Skirt will make you girly and feminine, depending of the model you wear. However, not of you like to wear skirt. So, I want to tell you tips of how to look sophisticated with simple outfit.

Wearing Outer

Outer will make you look more elegant and sophisticated without being to much. You can wear your favorite top with culotte pants and complete your look with the best outer.

17-09-10-19-12-56-294_deco-01.jpeg

LRM_EXPORT_20170910_213417.jpg

17-09-10-19-04-16-502_deco.jpg

Outer : Soecah

I wear the latest collection of Soecah from Catherine Soepadhi. You can directly go to the website HERE. The outer looks simple, but so stunning.  It can bring your look to the next level. You can try this look for your special occasion and for socialite gathering.

Wear your Comfy Culotte Pants

Culotte pants can be the best option to complete your look. The pant is so simple, but it can make you look taller. Just buy a pair of monochrome culotte pants. You don’t have to buy the expensive one, just buy the comfiest pants via online shops. There are so many choices of pants. Tips: do not wear printed pants if you have ‘chubby’ legs. It will make your legs even bigger.

17-08-12-12-04-59-181_deco.jpg

 

Wear Your Simple Dress or Jumpsuit

DSCF9310.JPG

Melanie Jumpsuit

17-09-10-19-09-45-997_deco-01.jpeg

Dress : ThisIsApril

Wearing the simplest dress will make you effortlessly beautiful in simplicity. Choose the simplest design for ‘natural’ look. You can also wear jumpsuit (with long bottom) to make you more elegant. My beautiful sabrina lace dress is from This Is April, a local brand with premium quality and affordable price for young women.

Tips: choose monochrome colour for your dress and jumpsuit for classic look. Printed dress will make you look bigger, but for skinny-type of body, you are allowed to wear more bright and bold colours.

High Heels To Wrap Up Your Look

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.

For me, wearing high heels is a must! I’m not tall and I need my heels to cover up my height on my photos. If you don’t like wearing stilletos, then you can go for wefges. Wedges are comfier than any type of heels. This is my favorite wedges from Schutz Shoes. You will never go wrong with this pair of heels! So comfy and you can wear them for a whole day. Premium leather, elegant design, and light!

Twin House, Cipete

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

2017_0901_12592400-01.jpeg

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.

LRM_EXPORT_20170905_155650.jpg

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 :

2017_0901_12582500-01.jpeg

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!

LRM_EXPORT_20170905_155953.jpg

Enter a caption

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).

Chinatown Bandung

2017_0812_17591400-01.jpeg

Hello travelers! Have you heard about Chinatown Bandung? It is recently opened on 4th August 2017. Located at Jalan Klenteng No. 41 (near Waringin School), Chinatown has been popular as the hype destination in Bandung. On 17th of August, the Chinatown is officially opened by the local government.

DSCF2042.JPG

The Chinatown is easily spotted from the Chinese design of the building. You must pay for the entrance fee (information is below) and get 1 small bottle of mineral water. You can take a picture on the paintings before you enter the building.

DSCF2043.JPG

The Entrance Door

When you enter the door, you can directly turn left to get in a small room with lots of oriental stuffs and a history of the Chinatown in Bandung. The ornament and design are very good and unique as if you are traveling in the ancient Chinese era.

Like any other chinatown places, there are many colourful lanterns. You can taking pictures in the afternoon or in the evening when all the lanterns are turned on. Very beautiful!

You must go up to a house to take some OOTD photos or just taking pictures of the beautiful view. There is also a red bridge at the center of the building which is so Chinese-style and instagram-able.

There are many souvenir stores at the right side of the building. Starting from Batik, kitchen tools, souvenirs, and also snacks. All of the stores are well-designed like in old Chinese era. You can also taking pictures at the ‘living room’ with jadoel-style home decor.

The Street Foods

Nasi Rames and Nasi Padang

Tahu Gejrot

The foods are mostly Indonesian street food, such as Es Dung Dung, Es Alpukat, Soto Ayam, Gado-Gado, Ketoprak, Nasi Goreng, Batagor, Tahu Baso, Baso Kuah, and fresh fruits. The price is ranged from IDR 10.000 to IDR 50.000/dish. I like the Baso Goreng and Nasi Lengko (traditional food from Cirebon).

DSCF2161-01.jpeg

Baso Goreng

Nasi Lengko

For the Soto Lamongan, it is too salty. Actually, the seasoning is quite tasty, soupy, long-boiled, and meaty. However, since it is too salty, I could not enjoy the soto 😦

DSCF2175.JPG

Soto Lamongan

The Tahu Baso is more likely siomay in Jakarta. The taste is so-so and the peanut sauce is too spicy. If you cannot eat spicy food, better to avoid this.

Tahu Baso Bandung

All foods in Chinatown must be paid via Debit Card or Flazz BCA. No cash or credit card. This is the food court in Chinatown Bandung. Very beautiful, isn’t it? Old-fashioned, but so cool!

Please Please Please has been popular through Instagram recently. When I have a chance to go to Bandung, I purposely visit this instagramable cafe at Jl. Progo. Looking from the outside, the place is dominated by pink colour with pink owl as the logo. The two-story cafe is quite big and spacious. The interior is cute and pinky. The 1st floor is non-smoking area and the 2nd floor is smoking area. The sunlight is better at the backside of the 1st floor and near the entrance door.

I come here in the morning for breakfast and I don’t know that you can order ONLY for breakfast menu. Sadly, I must order the western food for my breakfast (I like Asian food for my breakfast).

Here are the breakfast menus that I ordered.

Smoked Beef Sandwich

Turns out to be my favorite breakfast menu in Please Please Please. Never thought that chiabatta bread is this fluffy and quite big! The creamy mushroom is delicious and perfectly cooked with the garlic and onion. The portion is big enough to fulfill your hunger in the morning. However, nothing special with this menu.

Fish and Chips (45k)

2017_0812_10113000-01.jpeg

Fish and Chips

This menu is for appetizer and you can order it as your breakfast. Turns out the portion is big enough for 2-3 persons. The fish is good and I like the onion rings. Unfortunately, the potato wedges are salty. So, you must eat them with the sour cream to balance the taste.

Hot lemon tea (25k)

Since I eat fatty foods, I prefer to drink hot tea with lemon. The sour and fresh tea is good for burning out the fat in your body. The teapot is quite big for me, though.

Overall, this place is more likely selling the beautiful place rather than selling the foods. The price is affordable, the place is beautiful and cozy, but the food is not as good as you think. The service is good and fast. I recommend this place for hangout in the afternoon rather than having breakfast or lunch. FYI, the toilet is unisex and not so clean.

(Sorry I’m using Indonesian language)

Hello food lovers! Baru-baru ini gw pergi ke Medan untuk urusan business trip. Di tengah kesibukan kerja, gw sempet cobain kuliner-kuliner di Medan yang enak dan halal (non-halal cuma nyobain mie nih). Yuk kita intip kuliner enak di Medan.

1. Alpukat Macehat

Avocado Coffee Float

Wah ini kuliner wajib banget kamu coba! Alpukat Macehat ini sebenernya adalah alpukat kocok atua biasa disebut avocado coffee float. Alpukat yang dipakai adalah alpukat mentega, jadi gausa heran kalo rasanya mantep banget!!

Lokasinya beradai di Jl. Karo No.20 Medan. Tempat tersebut selalu ramai pengunjungnya. Mau beli aja harus antri panjang. Tempatnya tidak terlalu luas, sederhana, layaknya kedai kopi biasa.

Signature drink di sini adalah Avocado Coffee Float (IDR 32k) yang cantik untuk difoto dan rasanya  juga enak banget. Jus alpukatnya dicampur dengan es krim dan single shot espresso.

Avocado Coffee Float

Buat yang ga suka espresso, cukup memesan alpukat original saja. Rasanya creamy, bold, sweet, sedikit salty, sedikit gurih, dan segar! Cocok banget diminum panas-panas di Medan (kota ini panas banget dan kering, jadi cepet banget haus). Gw sarankan kalian ke sini saat sore hari.

2. Pondok Gurih

Pondok Gurih

Pondok Gurih merupakan rumah makan padang yang terkenal di Medan. Tempatnya kecil, hanya ruko biasa, panas, dan sangat ramai saat jam makan siang dan makan malam. Antriannya bisa sampai ke jalanan. Di bagian depan, ada etalase nasi gurih beserta lauknya. Kamu bisa memilih mau makan nasi di daun (bungkusan) atau di piring. Gw sarankan untuk memilih nasi di daun karena nasinya lebih harum, pulen, dan lebih seru makannya.

Menu utamanya selain nasi padang adalah Gulai Kepala Ikan Kakap.

Gulai Kepala Ikan Kakap

Gulai Kepala Ikan Kakap tersebut bener-bener enak: tidak amis, dagingnya empuk, dan daun singkongnya juga empuk. Pokoknya ini gulai ikan terenak yang pernah gw makan! Porsinya juga besar, jadi bisa dimakan ramai-ramai. Gw aja yang ga suka ikan bisa doyan, apalagi yang doyan nih. Selain gulainya, ada juga ayam pop yang crispy dan gurih serta jengkol balado yang enak banget! Gw menyarankan makan di Pondok Gurih saat malam karena tempatnya panas.

Soto Medan Ayam

Belum ke Medan namanya kalo belum nyobain kuliner khas Medan, yaitu Soto Medan. Sebenarnya, soto Medan mirip dengan soto Betawi : kuah santan kekuningan, gurih, pakai ayam atau sapi, dan enak banget disantap hangat. Perbedaannya, soto Medan bisa pakai udang!

Indomie Bangladesh

Ayo pecinta Indomie! Wajib nih kamu coba! Warmindo (Warung Makan Indomie) merupakan tempat makan di mana semau status sosial disama ratakan karena semuanya pasti suka sama Indomie. Salah satunya adalah Warmindo Agam Senyum di daerah Multatuli yang buka 24 jam. Kalo weekend rame banget, jadi kamu mesti pintar cari waktu yang pas sebelum ga kebagian tempat.

Warmindo menjual menu utama Indomie, baik kuah dan goreng. Variasi menu di Warmindo ini adalah Indomie Bangladesh (nyemek pedas), Mie Aceh, Ifumi Goreng, dan ada juga menu non-Indomie seperti Nasi Prang dan Nasi Goreng. Indomie di sini dimasak dengan bumbu racikan masing-masing Warmindo yang menjadi keunikan setiap Warmindo di Medan.

Nasi Prang

Ciri khas dari Warmindo di Medan adalah mereka menyediakan variasi minuman, mulai dari tehtong (teh panas), teh mandi (teh manis), teh kocok telur, bandrek, minuman botol, sachet, dan apapun yang kau minta, hampir pasti dapat mereka sediakan. Semua harga menu di sini sangat ekonomis dan under IDR 20k. Murah banget kan! Dengan harga segitu aja kamu bisa kenyang makan dan minum. Untuk makan di sini, lebih cocok dimakan saat malam hari sambil nongkrong dan ngobrol hingga larut malam.

5. Mie Aceh Titi Bobrok

Mie Aceh Kering

Mie Aceh adalah kuliner khas Aceh yang terbuat dari mie kuning yang dimasak pedas dengan campuran daging sapi ataupun seafood (udang / cumi / kepiting) yang dimasak kering / nyemek / basah (kuah). Mie aceh mungkin bisa dengan mudah ditemukan di Medan. Namun Mie Aceh Titi Bobrok adalah warung yang paling populer dan paling ramai pengunjung.

Tempatnya cukup besar dan ada 2 lantai. Dapurnya di lantai 1 dekat pintu masuk di sebelah kanan. Biasanya kalo malam, tempat ini sangat ramai sampai waiting list. Harganya juga terjangkau dan kalian bisa menikmati mie Aceh yang enak dengan aneka topping berbeda : sapi, udang, cumi, dan kepiting. Selain mie aceh, ada juga mie ayam, mihun, nasi goreng, dan sebagainya.

Menurut gw, ini mie aceh paling enak di Medan. Mienya bulat, agak keras (menurut orang Medan, kalo menurut orang Jakarta sih ini enak ya), bumbunya juga kuat spicesnya. Wajib coba Mie Aceh Kepitingnya yang nyemek dan enak banget! Gw paling suka makan di sini. Walaupun ramainya minta ampun, servicenya cepat.  Harganya juga terjangkau. Kalian lebih baik menyantap mie aceh ini di siang hari karena kalian bisa saja waiting list di malam hari.

Jus Rainbow (Markisa-Terong Belanda-Sirsak)

Buat anak muda, belum lengkap kalo belum nongkrong di Merdeka Walk. Tempat jajan outdoor ini berlokasi di seberang Bank Indonesia. Di sini, kalian bisa memilih food tenant seperti Nelayan Tenda, Starbucks, Oppai, dan masih banyak. Konsep food court ini sangat ramai dikunjungi anak muda pada malam hari disertai live music. Kalo belum terlalu lapar kamu bisa melihat-lihat aneka souvenir khas Medan yang ditawarkan di salah satu stand. Menurut beberapa orang harga makanan di Merdeka Walk Medan agak sedikit di atas rata-rata harga makanan di pusat kuliner lainnya di Kota Medan dan nggak cocok sebagai tempat jajan di tanggal tua seperti sekarang. Namun, tempat ini wajib kamu kunjungi untuk makan malem sambil mengobrol dan mendengar alunan musik, menikmati suasana malam kota Medan. Merdeka Walk cocok dikunjungi pada saat sore hingga malam hari karena suasana dan dekorasinya lebih bagus di malam hari.

7. Nelayan Mie Jaring – Chinese Food Restaurant (Halal)

 

Buat pecinta chinese food, kamu bisa mengunjungi restoran Nelayan yang cukup populer di Medan dan terdapat beberapa cabang di Medan. Gw icip chinese foodnya di dalam Mal Centre Point. Tempatnya cukup besar, elegant, dan ramai pengunjung saat malam hari. Dekorasinya agak gelap dan terdapat sentuhan Chinese decoration di dindingnya. Harganya cukup pricey, mengingat ini restoran kelas menengah ke atas. Untuk makanannya, ada a la carte dan dimsum. Cobain sapo terong dan sapi lada hitmanya ya. Enak! Dim sum nya juga enak. Kalian bisa makan di Nelayan saat lunch maupun dinner.

8. Ucok Durian

Durian Medan

Buat pecinta durian, kamu wajib coba Ucok Durian. Tempatnya super rame dan ga pernah sepi pengunjung. Durian Medan lebih harum dan lebih pahit (fermented taste) dari durian di kota lain. Pas masuk, kamu sudah mencium bau durian dari jauh. Gw sarankan kalian menyantap durian di malam hari setelah dinner karena tempat ini buka hingga tengah malam.

Durian di sini ada 2 macam : manis dan pahit. Sebagian besar orang Medan lebih menyukai durian pahit karena rasanya lebih nimkat, legit, dan fermented. Gw lebih suka durian yang manis sih. Semua tergantung selera.

Buat yang mau bawa oleh-oleh durian ini, kamu bisa membeli duriannya di bagian belakang yang sudah ditaruh di tempat makan plastik dan di-seal rapat. Kalau mau bawa pulang ke rumah (masih di area Medan ya, bukan luar kota), kamu bisa membeli durian utuh. Setiap durian yang kita pesan untuk dimakan langsung ataupun dibawa pulang, bisa dituker dengan yang baru jika duriannya ada yang busuk. Setiap pembelian lebih dari IDR 200k, kamu bisa mendapatkan 1 buah durian gratis (ukuran kecil) untuk disantap langsung.

Ayo, kalian pilih yang mana? Pas ke Medan, kamu pasti langsung kalap pengen nyoba semuanya. Namun, perlu diingat bahwa jalan di Medan macet, jadi kalian harus planning terlebih dulu.

Ini baru sebagian kuliner enak di Medan loh! Karena waktu gw yang padat, jadinya cuma sempet nyobain kuliner-kuliner ini. Kalau ada masukan tentang kuliner enak lain di Medan, silakan komen atau DM via Instagramku ya 🙂

Selamat kuliner!
