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.
