Available in Bahasa: Click Here

Indonesian food has become one of favorable list on culinary journey. With authentic traditional style and each destination have different kind of taste. Spend time around Gading Serpong area, there's many cafe or restaurant also a local modest eatery just like Empal Gentong Cerbonan with local Cirebon cuisine.




It is located at shopping block, my visit this time was during evening. It was quiet even at Saturday night. But as recommended by friend, it does make me really curious about how good Cirebon food.



Just as the name, Empal Gentong Cerbonan, what you must try should be the Empal (Fried beef dish). But sadly, my visit this time, it was sold out so i was just having another dish, still a same main ingredient, only different seasoning. That is Empal Asem or you may call it fried beef dish with sour seasoning.



This place was built with local modest eatery concept, not much accessories around there like restaurant normally. During evening, it was bit dark with poor lighting. What interesting is they do have a little touch to the interior with bucnh of statue display at front and there's a plant decorating cashier section.



In here, we may pick any kind of Indonesian dishes or veggies. It has various of choices to have, like a chicken, beef, veggies, bean curd or fried meal. I was with some friends, and we sure had a different dishes each other.



I have tried the stew bean curd, cakalang fish and sauteed long beans. Overall, i did sure love the food. Each dish has  nice seasoning and show up the authentic of Indonesian taste. Then we also try the empal, bowl of beef soup with sour seasoning.



It has nice soft texture of meat, but i found it has too much fat on it which is i don't really like it. Soup has a balanced sour taste, it is really fresh and i did sure enjoyed it.

After had our dinner, we ordered another meal, Tahu Gejrot. It is a fried tofu with watery dressing made of palm sugar, vinegar and soy sauce. It also served along with chili cut and onion. But i did not really into of it, it has really sweet flavor, other than that was fine, bean curd has smooth soft texture.



With local modest eatery concept, of course there was no an exclusive service as the restaurant. But i can tell  that they do served a good foods, and i think they also offer an affordable price for food.

Tom's by Tom Aikens, The Langham Jakarta

Bahasa l English A sunny weekend where the pandemic conditions in Indonesia have been getting better lately. Activities in public spaces are getting normal, so we can find some places with crowds. One of them is this restaurant which took a few weeks for me to make a reservation in advance because it was full every weekend. The Langham Jakarta has only been operating this year and has attracted great enthusiasm from Jakarta's community. No exception with the restaurant which was built with a luxurious British concept and developed by a chef from England, Tom Aikens who manages a Michelin Star restaurant in London. Carrying the name Tom's by Tom Aikens with a variety of classic British dishes. The location of this restaurant is on the L floor, the reception area, and arguably the 62nd floor.

Black Owl, PIK, Jakarta

This week, another good news for restaurant and bar fans, Black Owl is back in operation from the previous location in the PIK 1 area, now they are presented new location with a different concept. As soon as you pass through this area, you can clearly see the Black Owl with a black building with an owl logo on it. Seen the parking area is quite large and still not too crowded during the day. Once inside, we will pass through a hallway with a very high ceiling. My suggestion is it's best to make a reservation in advance to save your table. Black Owl comes with a restaurant and bar concept, a very stunning interior with dominant dark colors such as black and dark wooden material throughout the large room. The dim lights look calm and elegant, and what's amazing is the giant LCD screen that stretches to the ceiling. There
