Tim Ho Wan, Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK), North Jakarta

As the title, yes i was waiting over a hour for having lunch dim sum. Lately, there's new opening Dim Sum restaurant in PIK (Pantai Indah Kapuk) one of most trend hang out spot in North Jakarta. First, i did not have a plan to take a dim sun, but since my plan going to another cafe for lunch was disappointed, in 11.00 am the waitress said the menu was not ready, I think when you're ope the restaurant, you should have set all foods ready.

So i just went to Tim Ho Wan, one of restaurant with one Michelin star in town. It's specialist in Dim Sum menu. I was surprise when get in the restaurant and it was absolutely crowded. I just ask the waitress how many customers before us, she asked to wait on the 3rd floor. Then i took an elevator just going up, and what even shocking, got around 30-40 people up there same as me waiting for turn to having lunch.

Finally after short weekend as usual, it's Monday again. We all know it's unexcited day for all :'-). Today i'd like to describe a Bazaar trend happening in this town. Last weekend i went to event called BazaarAddict at Grand Indonesia Shopping Mall, this is not the first event bazaar that been held in here, it's been several bazaar before.

As food hunter, i've been travelling around city to see and taste new foods i found.

Tokyo Banana, Tokyo Omiyage

Today i want to tell about this foods commonly people brough after trip from Japan. Tokyo Banana, actually i never been to Japan, but i had this food as gift from friends for several times. I guess many people in town have been known Tokyo Banana, but i think it's ok fo me to tell little bit what is this. 
Tokyo Banana is a sponge cake with filling inside, it has some taste of it like it's original taste, chocolate, strawberry, etc... it just like common sponge cake that we may found in here, but Tokyo Banana has their own taste, not too sweet, very soft texture and each cake with different filling have different pattern on it.

for price of this cake, as i heard actually it's not really expensive for what it taste. But nowadays we may get this at online store, now many people are selling Tokyo Banana by online delivery, even though the price is higher than usual. We may say it cost for delivery. What i am not sure is Tokyo Banana is only have very short period to be expired.…
