Shabuya, Central Park Mall, West Jakarta

Sunday night before start another weekday, suddenly i thought about soup i could get for dinner. Especially caught the cold day. While exploring Central Park Mall, i decided to go to Shabuya. A Japanese restaurant at there on level 1st Central Park Mall. It is spotted at the corner front of mall, next to Sushi Tei. At 7.00pm, this restaurant seems quiet.
I just get in there, and waitress start offering the menu and i tend to look a while for the menu. Actually they are serving shabu set with some kinds and also an ala carte menu. I am think it would be convenient if i taking a shabu set which is got a set of meat or seafood, bowl of vegetables and free appetizers also fruits dessert.
First come out is Pozhu sauce, it is dipping sauce for the dishes.


Korean Chef, Edward Kwon, Shangri La Jakarta

As the title, i am having taste of Korea dishes. But it is a modern Korea actually. In thins Friday night i am attending Gala Dinner with Chef Edward Kwon at Shangri La Hotel. This chef is one of famous celebrity chef in Korea. He doesn't gave an huge anthusiasm for many people in town when we knew that he ll come here.
Function is going to start on 7.15pm, i just heading to Shangri La hotel after work. When arrived , it has quiet many attendance. Many food bloggers, politicians, journalist & media, enterpreneur and entertainment people i guess.

Delicate Chinese Food, Soup Restaurant, Senayan City

Been long time chinese dish spread out around the world, and we surely found many chinese restaurant in town. This time i'd like to tell about one restaurant at Senayan City, South Jakarta. It's Soup Restaurant, spotted at lv.4. From at the front, this place absolutely has chinese concept by the interior. Basicly they are serving soups with variants but they also serve main chinese cuisines, just like Ta wan, Njun Njan, or imperial kitchen. But i can tell they have different taste and flavor than others.
Lunch started by small plate of boiled peanuts with chili sauce, peanuts taste sweey, soft texture and sauce bit sour but nice indeed.


Factory Of Meat, The Fctory, Lippo Mall Puri

Dinner time on weekend always great moment to hunting new food spots. Here now i went to Fctry Bistro & Bar, it's located at Lippo Mall puri area. It is not exactly inside the mall, but you need to out of the lobby and take a side of the mall. I am not quiet familiar yet with this mall, and it is huge mall indeed.
Fctry Bistro & Bar is western restaurant with rustic concept, dark color and using pipes for the wall decoration. menu here, mostly their main dish is using meats as the main ingredients, especially pork and beef. But don't worry, it also got salmon, dory or any salads there. Before start our dish, we welcomed by bunch of breads.

One best dishes my favourite is seafoods! In this town we don't see seafood restaurant alot compare than western or chinese restaurant. But nowadays, at least we have quiet choices. This time i'd like to talk about one of famous seafoods spot in Jakarta is Bandar Djakarta. This restaurant has been opening for quiet time, they've been popular by variant of freah alive seafoods ingredients, nice spots around the sea view and many show or music perfomance during dinner time.
This time i went to Bandar Djakarta at Baywalk Mall, actually they got several branch in town. I went eher in my friend birthday occasion, exactly i have been here for couple of times. This restaurant has concept just looks alike with another branch at Ancol Beach, it's exactly right edge of the sea where we could enjoyed seafoods with view, wind, and smell of the sea.
In this restaurant, we may choose our own sea creatures to get on cooked by our choice of sauce or flavors. We would be accompany by a w…

Olivier, Grand Indonesia Mall, Central Jakarta

Another Fusion Restaurant just open in town. Olivier at Grand Indonesia Mall has been run about couple months. From it name, it is obviously Western style restaurant, but in fact they also serve variant of Asian cuisines. 
From the outside, european typical elements is really strong wooden with glass door, dark color either brown or dark brown, we may see a pastry displayed when come inside restaurant, and then we would approach the receptionist counter after pass through it. At dinner time, this place is quiet crowded at the bar, for note in this restaurant we would see non-smoking area is close with the window and side door, for smoking are would right inside the restaurant since they also has a bar corner.
Since i am prefer non-smoking area, so waitress lend us table just right next to the window where we could see outside of the streets, building of Grand Indonesia Mall. Before start our main dish, welcoming bread is come out first. what is bit funny is, waiter is asking "do we…

In fact, it seems this restaurant has been runned by family management. It has quiet many customers, very noisy and loud both of customers and even the waiters or services back at the kitchen. we may hear loud voices from eve…

European - Asian Dining, Ninety Nine, Pesanggrahan

Been lately, i always do little experiment of cooking. find new recipe by online is one of easiest thing to do. What major problem is looking for unfamiliar ingredients at supermarket. I tend go to Ranch Market and Foodhall where we could find more imported products and ingredients. Even though not all ingredients are completed, but at least we may found some other alternative.
This time i am looking for double cream to make a Tiramisu, actually i had been some of supermarket in town, but what i found only whipped cream, cooking cream, sour cream and i couldn't find the double cream. So i decided to just use whipped cream, i assume it's not thick as double cream, but it may useable.
