.Delika.


I never know this place existed, until last week. This small shop was located beside the Penang Bistro, in fact I think it's under Penang Bistro management.Drooling by this cake cabinet...the pink one is red velvet, sweet :) I was gonna take it home.....until I saw this. I was thinking about macaron that day, score!Each was 6K++, I got 3 and already lost 2 the time we got out from the parking area heheh..I chose Coconut, Chocolate and Blueberry.

Coconut - nice and crispy, smells funky.
Chocolate - I think so far it's the best chocolate macaron I ever had, although I rarely eat chocolate macaron. The taste was nice and it's not overly sweet :)
Bluberry - my favorite among all of them. The blueberry taste was very subtle, although it's a bit bubbly but what the heck I love it :DI think it's a good change beside the usual Manon :D

.Bakerzin.

Last week, I was meeting with my good friends from college at Plaza Senayan. At first, we had our reservation at the famous Union Brasserie, but too bad my friend only put 6 persons in the reservation. We ended with a group of 8, and we were told to wait a while for our table, approx. 1.5 hours. I'm starving at that time, so did some of us, so we changed our plan quickly to Bakerzin. Too bad, maybe next time, Union :P

I don't quite remember what we ordered or how it tasted, but here's some of the pictures. Pardon me for the lame pictures, too busy socializing :PMiss A ordered Arrabiata Spaghetti, I only tasted pepper in it, miss A could not even finish it.Bratwurst Lasagna was Mr Chubby order. Tasted okay I think but not so wow for me.Miss I ordered the Home-made Corned Beef Sandwich, oops forgot to try :PI ordered the Gourmet Burger. I love the potato although it's a bit cold. The burger was okay, needs more kick in flavor though. orNachos for share. More jalapeno please?Kiwi Cooler something? I forgot to try this :PI ordered White Peach Iced Tea, which was good :)Miss A ordered Black Forrest, I think it's not to heavy than the usual Black Forrest I had, which I loved. But more plum please? :P I said more to much in this post, right?Mr C ordered Vanilla Creme Brulee. It's crackling (thank God), not too sweet, some said it's slightly runny and needs torched more, but I think it's a matter of personal preference :) I said it's good but not wow-ing me much.

Overall, I think I should be back for their dessert rather than the main course. Plus, I haven't had a chance to try their macarons, those cute colorful biscuits are calling me....

.Bakmi Cubeng : Revisited.

Just a quick post from my dinner few weeks ago at Bakmi Cubeng :)I ordered my usual Bakmi Lebar (forgot the price, around 12K?)And Mr Chubby ordered Bakmi Jumbo (about 15K), I don't get any difference in portion between the usual and jumbo -__- And of course, this jar of goodness. A bit dizzy afterwards, but I think it's worth with the price :PAnd, Badak of course..This place is currently my favorite spot to fix my bakmi craving! :D

.Miyatako.

Citraland always reminded me of college life. Eventhough it's kinda far from my uni, I visited this mall frequently since it filled with many interesting shops, especially sport store. So few weeks ago, me and Mr Chubby were wondering around Citraland for some sport items shopping, and we stumbled upon this stall.

I remembered Irene's review about them. We were hoping for a quick snack before dinner, so we only ordered one of their combo, but sorry I forgot the exact price and items in it :( The onigiri was bland, despite the very promising cute look :(Their takoyaki was not bad, but I still prefer Takoichi's version. The ball was glorious as I hoped but the sauce need more sweetness I think. And more katsuobushi please... :P

Overall, it's a nice change from my usual Takoichi, plus it's almost half of Takoichi's price! :D

.The Baked Goods.




So finally, I visited this place 2 months ago, I know it's a long time ago but I finally had a time to post about it hehe.. well, anyway after so manygoodreviews about it, I went there with Mr Chubby.

Since I was thinking about having a dinner afterward, I only ordered 1 cake, the famous Carrot Cake. I don't remember why I ordering this one, I'm more into Cheese Cake actually. The cake was .........let me say I'm not a fan of this sort-of-pound cake, plus the center of the cake was really mushy. The cream cheese was good though.

I think I should be back for other cakes that suit me better,quiche perhaps?

.Hakata Ikkousha : Revisited.


Just a quick post. I think in the future there will be more quick posts coming... huehuehe...too lazy to write lately :P forgive me okay? :)

Hakata Ikkousha has opened their new branch at Gading area, and they also served new menu, one of them is Curry Ramen. I think I love my usual order, Special Pork Ramen (first photo) rather than Curry Ramen (second photo) since it's sweeter :) Both of them are really good though, it's hard to choose :P

.Singapore.

Hello! How are you guys ? :D Sorry for my late post, I've been busy lately with work stuff as always. Anyway, I just got back from my 3 days trip to Singapore :D

Day 1
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------We were departed in the morning, but first, a quick stop at the airport's lounge. Ahh the bliss of Platinum cards (or having a friend who owned it, in my case) hehe..I was staying at Lucky Plaza, so after arriving, we dropped our baggage at the apartment and headed to ION for lunch. My first meal at Singapore was Sergeant Chicken Hainam Rice ($4.5) at Food Republic, ION. The rice was quite good, slightly too oily but the chicken was tender and fragrant. Mr Chubby had the Minced Pork with Fish Ball Noodle ($4.5), tasted average despite the very promising look.

After that, we browsed through the city, in conclusion, we walked from City Hall MRT to Marina Bay Sands and continue our journey to Boat Quay. That seriously a hard work! -__-The magic card. I really wish Indonesia's public transportation would be like this one day. To be honest, MRT is the only thing I'm missing from Singapore.Nice art installation in Esplanade.The great Marina Bay Sands.What's better than sitting on the bay waiting for the night with a bag of Garrett popcorn? :PGot a Chicago Mix (Cheese + Caramel) for $8 (I think). The cheese was super delicious!

Day 2
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------USS Day! woohoo! but first, it's breakfast time :) The only toast I had in Singapore, at the basement of Lucky Plaza. Tasted not too good plus the coffee wasn't too strong :( But USS day! woohoo! :PI think the best section in USS is sci-fi section. We got to try the Battlestar Galactica, I choose Human of course, too scared for being a Cyclone! We also tried the Transformer 3D, which totally awesome! We even managed to try it for 2 times.And of course, the yellow camaro must be there right? :)One of my favorite was carousel hehe..I'm still a child inside :PCute :P

The Mummy roller coaster in Egypt section also good! We also tried it for 2 times. The bliss of visiting USS in weekday hehe...Lunch was at Loui's Pizza in the USS New York area. We got a Family Combo ($55), 2 soup of the day, a 42" pizza and 4 drinks. The soup of the day was Mushroom Soup, smelled earthy, tasted good, although a bit too milky for others. The pizza was HUGE, we could not even finished it, whew! We chose the Chicken Tandoori flavor, which I loved because it's topped with chicken, onions, cucumber, and the lovely Indian mint sauce :)

Visiting the Candilicious afterwards...Pucker Powder, would love to try this one day :PWoo heaven!

The benefit of visiting USS in weekday was we already finished tried all their games in noon. So we went back to the city, and stopped by Vivo City..I super LOVE this place! Anyone who designed this place is a genius! They had big park at the roof top with a playground and we can watch the children played while soaking our feet in water...... bliss!

Next stop, China Town!yummy display..healthy afternoon snack, rojak ($5). They surely had many sauce and toppings -__-stopped by this Koi's cafe for their bubble tea. Chatime wins lah...Mom's told me to try the Roasted Chestnut in China Town ($5 for 1/2 kilo), I would say I'm glad go with her choice. The chestnut was great, it's sweet and tasty! It's like yam and sweet potato mixed together. My friend said I should try the one in China, it's crunchier. Yum! One of my trip highlights was this, the wheat grass juice, $1! woohoo! It's not too sweet and very refreshing!Dinner was Char Kwei Tiau at China Town. Again, despite the very promising look, I still find the taste was wasn't that right, my Indonesian tongue needs more kick hehe..

Day 3
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ikea Time! :) I'm always a fan of Index (now Informa) store, so I was really thrilled to visit the Ikea. We visited the Tampines store, it's 2 level store and filled with many indulgences hhehehe..

But first, breakfast time again :D This time in Ikea restaurant :)We were using trolley to pick up our food, nice...Poached Salmon with Vegetables (around $8,I forgot hehe) was nice, the fish was good although the sauce didn't make any difference.Swedish Meatball with Pasta ($8.6) was the reason I visited this place. The meatball was good on itself. Chicken Mushroom Pie (forgot the price), was personally my favorite. It's tasty and the filling was generous, the herbs used was generous, exactly like what we had in Indonesia hehehe...Hot Tea for $0.5 and it's Dilmah! woohoo!

After Ikea, we headed back to Orchard for packing our bags and lunch. We had lunch at Lucky Chicken Rice at Lucky Plaza. Half Steamed Chicken, a Vegetable, 5 rice for $33, good value! The chicken was good, but the rice was the winner, each grain was separated and covered with delicious chicken stock. Lovely!

Here's some of what I got to try in Singapore.The $1 Ice Cream. My friend was a committed lover and ate at least one each day... I only had it for once, I didn't remember why. I think it's good, it's kinda different than the ordinary Ice Cream. it's not too heavy and it's airy but still creamy. The wafer was the best companion btw.And Chocolate, of course.I usually bought the Crisp Choco at Food Hall, but it's the ordinary Milk Chocolate. But when I found in Takashimaya there's Coffee and Caramel Almond flavor (yellow box, not pictured), I quickly grabbed a box ($3). The coffee was very fragrant, it's bitter than the others but it's still good. Caramel Almond flavor was good too, but I think my favorite still the Milk Chocolate heheh! :DWhen I saw this Nama Chocolate from Royce at Takashimaya, I already i'm gonna take it. I don't know it's existed in Jakarta, until I googled it yesterday hehe..

The chocolate packaging was really complicated, I only took 2 pictures of them but there's more than that. It's said you have to keep in certain temperature for keeping the texture and taste, so I think it's difficult to take it to Indonesia and I decided to eat a whole box hehhee.. for $15, I think it's really worth with the price! The chocolate was rich and it's a soft chocolate so the texture wasn't like a chocolate block but melted chocolate. It's hard to explain but you should try this one if you are a chocolate lover!Chocolate come to me~I also had some stroopwafel, biscuits, candy, and other sweet treats hehhe.. Also got few pounds of dried Chestnut..And Taiyaki! Takashimaya's Food Hall is seriously a dangerous place to go hehehe..

Overall, I think it's a nice trip. Too bad I don't each quite much, I think I should visited Singapore more often hehe..
