A new restaurant is in town. Bearing the name AGBELIN Bistro and Cafe, this new dining establishment firmly stood in what once was Hospitalis (now permanently closed).
A FoodyID invitation brought me here. Again yet again, thank you FoodyID for constantly inviting me to your event. It's always lovely to join it.

It's been a while since I updated this blog. I sure do hope you guys miss me (I know you do, right! Hehe). Well, I've been caught up with work and sadly been postponing some blog posts to write. My bad, though. For this post, I want to tell you about a restaurant that serves my most favorite food in the world. Yes, it serves Indonesian food. The restaurant is called Boen Kitchen. Want to know more? Scroll down!

As I am writing this down, I am reminiscing my recent trip to Bali. It was around 3 weeks ago and I went there with some friends. It's truly sad to hear that Bali is currently experiencing volcanic eruption. I sure do hope it will pass soon. Well, anyway, my visit to Bali now gets more exciting since I am enlisting this new restaurant to my favorite and must visit place. You know what restaurant I'm talking about. It's definitely have gotta be Pork Star!

A new cafe is in town and boy, I am loving this place. Last Sunday, me and the boys of @dailyfoodseeker went to this cafe called Monkey Tail Cafe which is located in the vicinity of Pantai Indah Kapuk. We tasted some of their brunch menus and we agreed that this cafe is worth to visit. Scroll down below to know why!

Ini tepatnya adalah hari Jumat pagi ketika saya menulis blogpost ini. Matahari cukup terang dan cuaca cerah serta angin bertiup semilir. Ini suasana yang sangat cocok untuk menikmati sesuatu yang enak, seperti makanan atau minuman. Saya sih punya preferensi sendiri nih, misalnya membaca buku yang bagus sambil ditemani secangkir teh yang enak. Ya, saya selalu suka menikmati momen-momen favorit saya dengan secangkir teh Dilmah.

Kelapa Gading is widely known besides having lots of well-known seafood establishment around, it also has many delicious noodles restaurants you can easily find among the side of the streets.
About a couple of weeks ago I ventured this area, hoping to find good noodles for breakfast in a Sunday morning and winded up trying one at this noodle restaurant, Bakmie Suang.

Who doesn't like Japanese food? Please put your hands up. None? Well, it's a no wonder since Japanese food is just so lovable. You can mention many things to be loved from Japanese food, well, let's say its fresh ingredients, its taste, or sometimes its simplicity.
There is just a vast number of Japanese restaurants in this capital city that one can choose from, but certainly if you're looking for an authentic one then I can recommend one place for you to go. Just head up to Kira Kira Ginza at Blok M Square.

What is your definition of a 'Sunday well spent'? Mine would be good food with good friends. Well, it was my meet up with my buddies after a couple of weeks we didn't have the chance to gather up, and what couldn't be better than to spend it at a place with delicious food.
As it was a nice Sunday afternoon, we shared small talks and laughters at IINDIGO Lounge.

I've come this place for several occasions, mainly food tasting invitation for a Sunday Brunch. I must say this place is quite convenient for some reasons, let's say for its location or its ambiance. Last Sunday I made another visit, this time to accompany a dear friend of mine which happens to be a blogger too. We came there to enjoy another spectacular Sunday Brunch by Cassis Kitchen.

I've come to know Penang Bistro from my girl. Apparently it was her favorite restaurant when it comes about Peranakan cuisines. She could brag all day about how she loved the Penang Char Kway Teow, Singapore Crispy Sotong (this is her all time fave!), and the Ayam Goreng Terasi. It seems to be mandatory now if we visit Grand Indonesia, Kota Kasablanka or Central Park, that she will demand we eat at Penang Bistro. So when the other day I got an invitation with a plus one from Rinku for a gathering at Penang Bistro, she was more than thrilled to join!

Mangga Besar is quite a busy culinary area with lots of restaurants and street food vendors lining up in the side of the busy street. Mostly the food you can find here are commonly chinese food. It is well known to be a perfect place to get some delicious chinese cuisines. Nevertheless if you dig up more to even the smallest section of the road, you might find some surprises along the way, like one that I found yesterday, Pitstop Culinary Heaven.

Give a warm welcome to the phenomenal and long awaited (and probably the sexiest) restaurant/sports bar in Jakarta, the Hooters Jakarta.
Well, I have noticed this sports bar for quite some time, ever since their official Instagram account was published. Yesterday, I got invited to attend the grand launching of Hooters, and certainly I came there with a lot of enthusiasm.

Ramadan is just weeks away. Time sure flies so fast, and we are about to enter the fasting month again. In this kind of the month surely you can find restaurants trying to put out their special dishes to welcome the fasting event. If you're looking for a place to plan your upcoming breakfasting, I have one recommendation for you, La Moda.

For those of you who just love to travel to Singapore, hainanese chicken rice is an absolute dish to hunt for. Consider to be the national dish of Singapore, it is just an uncomplete trip if you don't take the time to try this delicacy.
I, myself, is a fan of this fragrant chicken rice. To be honest, not so many restaurants could deliver that perfectly rich flavor that hainanese chicken rice should have.
Luckily, now I can recommend you a place that fulfill my expectations, called Jia Jia Singapore Hainanese Chicken Rice.

Back to classic! Indeed sometimes some things classic are just way better than anything else. When I talk about a restaurant in which I classified as a classic, it doesn't mean that it has a retro kind of ambiance or anything. Well, AH Resto & Cafe might be one of those I consider to be a classic since this place brings reminescence of my early teenage years. Back at those days, I often went here with school buddies just to grab a bite to eat. It was located at the now-standing Menteng Huis (as far as I remember CMIIW) before it is relocated at Hotel Ibis Budget Cikini.
Ah the good old days..

Whoa! It's been a year already! Days seem to pass by so quickly then suddenly it has already been a year since Oku opened its doors to public. I remember coming here when they just started service for maybe a couple of days. You can check out my post about that one here.
I clearly remembered how amazing the food was and certainly this time it was certainly an honour just to be back and invited for their first anniversary.

This is one coffee shop I've been putting under radar since I've seen the "BREWING SOON" sign placed on the front window.
Karet Pedurenan is my Monday through Friday routine and certainly I think it will be nice to have a decent coffee shop available for a coffeeholic like me.
So there it is now, welcome the newly-opened Kopineto.

It's a new fresh look of Asia Restaurant at Ritz-Carlton Mega Kuningan Jakarta. If you've never seen its previous look, well lucky you, just check it out here.
It's always great to come back to a restaurant that has impeccable service and also good food. This is my second time to come to Asia Restaurant and certainly a rapid change had occured. Curious enough? Keep on scrolling!

Sunday leisure time means it's time to get awesome food. My family has a tradition, back when my late father was still around, we would go and enjoy dim sums as brunch. We had our own pick when it comes to dim sums, a place where we felt the food just suits our taste. It's kinda picky when it comes to dim sums, not all Chinese restaurants are pretty skillful in making them. But yet some time ago I found a place that could be my reference for another family Sunday dim sum brunch. It's called Pearl Chinese Restaurant at JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta.

Kickstarted my Sunday with yet another Sunday brunch. Certainly a habit I won't ever avoid. Sunday is always a day I intend for fun, and nothing better than enjoying good food as an escapade from tiresome Monday through Friday hectic office stuffs.
Shangri-La Hotel, as one of the best five-stars hotel you can find in the capital, certainly was a great option for Sunday's foodgasm fulfillment. You can name some fantastic restaurants that reside at Shangri-La, such as Satoo and Jia. But don't forget their top Italian restaurant, Rosso.

Thai food is always my favorite. Well, honestly, I don't eat Thai food that often or as much as I have been recently, but the resembling taste and the richness of the herbs and spices with Indonesian food certainly have become that factor that puts this certain cuisine on my favorite list.
Another FoodyID invitation brought me to try this Thai restaurant called U-Thai Cafe & Resto, located at The Foundry 8, SCBD. This is a food district I never visited before. There's always a first time for everything, right?

Lately I've been attending quite a lot of Sunday brunches. Not to say that I don't like it, well actually I've been waiting for it. Sunday brunches at restaurants mean that special menus are up for grasp. Now who wouldn't love that?
About a couple of weeks ago I had the chance to tried the Sunday Brunch at Attarine Jakarta. I've been hearing a lot about this particular restaurant, and when it finally came the time to have a visit, I couldn't be more patient!

Kalian penggemar teh, atau suka minum teh? Well, saya sih jujur lebih ke arah coffee person ya, tapi teh selalu jadi pilihan saya kalau sedang menyantap makanan di restoran ataupun di food vendors pinggir jalan. Menurut saya teh lebih efektif untuk palate cleansing ketimbang air putih. So, anytime is tea time. Setuju? Tentu juga teh punya khasiat yang menyehatkan badan apabila dikonsumsi secara teratur. Jadi bisa dibilang juga saya ini loversoftea hehe.
Nah, kebetulan pula pada hari Selasa kemarin saya diundang nih ke acara An ExquisiTea: Tea Pairing Session with Peter Kuruvita di Dilmah t-Lounge. Boleh dibilang ini sebuah experience yang langka untuk saya bertemu dengan seorang Celebrity Chef yang saya kagumi. Mau tahu gimana keseruan acaranya? Scroll trus ke bawah ya!

Inspired by the Japanese zero sum hand game, please welcome the new comer in Jakarta's culinary world, ROCK PAPR SCSR. Yes, it's a unique name although they didn't spell it completely, but litterally just shortened each word to a 4 letters syllable.

Back on a tight Sunday in which I had 3 foodtasting invitations along with my @dailyfoodseeker friends. Fortunately all 3 places were located in the area of Mega Kuningan and only in walking distance so it felt great not to hustle from one place to another and simply have more time to enjoy the food and have chit chats.
And our first stop that day was Loewy, which is located at Oakwood Premier Cozmo.

Last Saturday I got invited to a foodtasting event organized by FoodyID. Well, it's been almost a year since last time I went to a FoodyID event, which was held at Oku. You can read the review about it here. This time the event is held at The Den of Kalaha, which is located inside Sommerset Grand Citra. And that Saturday was not like my regular Saturday. I've got 3 foodtasting events that occured in a slightly tight hours, but lucky enough the distance between those places were not that far so I managed to squeezed all of them in one day.

Pada hari Rabu, 22 Februari 2017 lalu saya diundang ke salah satu event yang diadakan oleh DREAM.CO.ID bersama dengan Mustika Ratu. Acara ini bertajuk Blogger Gathering Fit & Health with Slimming Tea by Mustika Ratu. Jujur saya cukup surprise waktu dapat undangannya karena secara saya memang lagi berniat ngurusin perut dan sempat kepikiran sih untuk coba produk Slimming Tea series ini. Jadi buat saya, event ini seperti suatu kebetulan yang menyenangkan, karena saya bisa belajar pola diet, gaya hidup, serta cara mengatur asupan nutrisi yang sehat juga nih buat bantu saya makin cepat ngurusin tubuh tapi tanpa harus menyiksa tubuh atau membatasi aktivitas saya sebagai foodblogger.

When it comes around duck cuisines, especially Indonesian style of duck cuisine, well I usually have my own favorite spot. For me, when it comes about duck cuisine, when I already felt a connection, when I feel suited by the way the dish was cooked and presented then I don't wanna go and try the same kind of dish elsewhere. I think making a duck cuisine needs a lot of skills and consistency, and not a lot of restaurant could really do that.
So when I was asked to come and try the duck dishes at Bebek BKB well honestly I have doubts but since it is quite close to where I live I thought why not giving it a try. Who knows it might be my next favorite duck restaurant, LOL.

Continuing my previous post about Resinda Hotel Karawang, in this post I am going to talk about the hotel's restaurants. Of course in any staycation it won't be complete without having to try the food at the hotel's restaurants. I always think that food is something that completes the whole package. And so for this staycation in particular, I got to try 3 restaurants located at Resinda Hotel Karawang. They are Tenkai Japanese Restaurant, The Oryza Restaurant, and Hai Wang Chinese Delight.

Last weekend from 4th - 5th Feb 2017, I had a lovely staycation at Resinda Hotel Karawang. It was something I long awaited since the time my friend, Yennymakanmulu asked me to join in. My work had been so hectic at the office lately since one of my dept staff had resign, so having this staycation was like an oase for the tiresome feeling I get from overtime work.

Last Saturday I got the chance to visit and try this steak restaurant, named Mucca. It is one group with the infamous Gandy Steak. Have you ever heard of Gandy? Well, surely as one of the oldest steak houses in Jakarta, Gandy has put some benchmarks for others to follow.
Mucca itself, being one of the sister company of Gandy, has a different concept.

Give a warm welcome to Jia, the newest addition for the fascinating eateries at Shangri-La Hotel Jakarta. After months of preparations, Jia finally opened its door for customers at the 28th of December 2016. Substituting for the now-closed Shang Palace and serving contemporary Chinese cuisines, Jia certainly packed some big guns to compete with other big names in this category.

The area around Puri, West Jakarta isn't exactly the kind of area I frequently go to. To be honest, it's a bit far and the roads could be confusing sometimes. But over the last couple of weeks I seemed to be visiting this area quite a lot. Either it is for a birthday invitation or just a quick meetup with some old friends. It's actually confusing why they have to choose this area, but some said just to avoid traffic.
And just about last week I went back here again, to Lippo Mall Puri @ St.Moritz, to attend an event held by HandsInFrame at TableShare.
