Festive Menu, TWG Tea & Salon, Jakarta

Bahasa l English

The Holiday is closer! Well, this time not at the hotel, but a luxurious tea lounge in Jakarta. TWG has become the most popular tea lounge in town and even famous in the world. Known for its classy interior at every store, then truly golden color that looks elegant. Then countless tea choices, from my favorite Silver Moon, Eternal Summer and many more.
This December they presented a festive menu to welcome Christmas 2019. This month, several set dishes are available to celebrate a special moment with family or friends. Check here some below:
1. Festive Tea Time Set Menu (Rp 295.000 ++)
This set allows guests to enjoy the experience of quality tea set by TWG. You can enjoy 2 kinds of tea or tea mocktail. Then available a patisserie from the trolley, 4 types of savory meals, and 2 kinds of viennoiseries. Well, that is quite enough for two persons. A good combination between the savory meals and sweet treats together.

Parc 19, Kemang, South Jakarta

Bahasa l English
After renovation for some of the time, Parc 19 is operating now with more modern concepts and comfortable. AT first glance, this place kind of looks like a coffee shop with wooden dan urban vibes through the interior. But if you look clearly, basically it is a lounge dining that also equipped with a bar station. This time I had the opportunity to taste several of their signature dishes, with the new concept still stick to the Western and Asian fusion, here some below:

1. Char Siu Beef Fried Rice (Rp 85.000)
From the presentation, it looks simply like a bowl of classic fried rice. But for its taste, this one has become a favorite dish for me. Fried rice topped by beef jelly to represent the pork that normally found in Chinese fried rice. Even the aroma just exactly like I am having a bowl of fried rice at the Chinese restaurant. Very interesting!
2. Quattro Formagi ( Rp 95.000)
Classic pizza that common to be found the restaurants in Jakarta. Pizza with fairly thin crusty b…

Halfway Arteri, South Jakarta

Bahasa l English
Another Chope restaurant that I can recommend to you to go. Halfway is a hype bar dining with very nice decoration. The wooden concept in the whole interior makes this place looks very gentle. Then the painting on the large wall just make a nice spot for taking pictures.
The menu they offer here is in the form of Western Asian twist dishes that adjusted to the Jakarta community. Last Sunday I had a chance to try some dishes as below:  1. Spaghetti Halfway Chicken (Rp 75,000)
A comfort dish that is quite common to be found at restaurants in Jakarta. Spaghetti combined with a moist and tender piece of chicken. Pasta is al dente, but a little too much of oil which the pasta kinda greasy. Well besides that, the spicy taste has pampered the palate.
2. Pizza (Start from Rp 75.000)
Here's the pizza variant that is quite diverse, from Four Cheese, Pepperoni Basil, Chicken Pineapple and etc. The pizza is quite thin, crunchy, full of topping and balanced seasoning. Well, I can sa…

Halloween Brunch, Prego, Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali

Bahasa l English
Bali has always been a pleasant destination for a vacation. At the end of last October 2019, with a short time, I spent several days in Bali with several events at the restaurant. On this occasion, I visited a restaurant at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali. Prego, a restaurant that has won awards as The Best Sunday Brunch with an authentic Italian dishes.
Luckily, on my visit yesterday, the theme that was carried was Halloween which provided a quite different atmosphere and experience than the usual Sunday brunch. A large area is equipped with outdoor which has been prepared by several rides for children's activity. Sunday brunch at  Prego indeed can be the right choice for families.
In this Halloween theme, Prego presents nuanced where there are spooky-theme decorations, as well as the buffet menu served. A variety of diverse international dishes so as to provide a varied choice for guests. You can check out some photos below, many creations of food made to following…

Twenty Fifth, Kebayoran, South Jakarta

Bahasa l English
Looking for lunch recommendations, the Senopati area is surely one of the favorites. An area filled with unique and interesting restaurants and cafes. Twenty Fifth is a sister company of Leon and Roosevelt Jakarta. If Leon and Roosevelt are built with dining and lounge theme, Twenty Fifth offers more to casual dining.
Casual cafe with a modern concept that at first glance looks like a coffee shop complete with the bar aside. A fairly large area holds about 50-60 people. The atmosphere is quite comfortable and calm during my visit at lunchtime. The menu available here is quite similar with the other two outlets. The concept of the typical Asian twist menu that is currently loved by the Jakarta community.
Some of the menus that I tried this time such as Spaghetti Seafood, Bibimbap, Gyutan and some menus that could be considered familiar to the Jakarta community. The flavors offered are adjusted to our tastes who like the savory taste. The entire menu here can be said to be…

1. Le Meridien Coffee Week
No doubt this moment provides an interesting story for the coffee fan. Indonesia itself is one of the biggest coffee producers in the world. I stopped by at Le Meridien Jakarta to enjoy a cup of quality coffee by Illy, light meals and a bunch of chats. Le Rendevouz is a lobby lounge indeed comfortable with a calm open area. In the afternoon it's quite crowded by office people.
