Creamery Island

Standard

I’m curious for quite a long time to come to this cafe because my mom, my sister & my friend said, “They have the incredible lava cake!”. Because I’m a chocoholic, this place is become one of my “must try” food list! The place is quite small & the design is so simple. This place is a Singapore franchise branch. They produces freshly made premium ice cream, proudly featuring local flavors. No artificial colors, flavorings or preservatives are used in the ice cream. They provide assorted cakes too, it’s seems so yummy. I will try them all on my next visit ;)

I came here in the evening, in the heavy rainy day.  I felt so cold, so I wanna order a cup of Hot Cafe Mocha. It feels so good….

Next order is Nachos French Fries. The melted cheese & bacon sprinkle is accompany the hot french fries perfectly. Tasty!

And this is their signature dessert: Chocolate Lava Cake. They let me choose the ice cream flavor by myself. I choose Kahlua Latte flavor. When I cut the lava cake, the sticky hot chocolate directly melted out….OMG….the taste is so incredible! As a chocolate lover, I say this is so scrumptious! Must order dessert!

I like to hang out at Flavor Bliss Alam Sutera area. Because there’s many option of food that I can choose. I remember that night, Serpong area has washed down by heavy rain. And I heard there’s a horrible traffic jam everywhere at Jakarta, so I think I will go back to Jakarta late at the night. I must find a cozy place to spend my night here. Finally this place has catch my eyes and thai food seems the best option for light snack in the night. Grasshopper….hmmm… what an interesting name….I don’t know why they named it like that? I love the interior design. Dominated with white color, the place looks modern, natural (they put a fake big tree inside as an accent) and romantic (the lamp choice & the stair design). Very relaxing ambience….

Spicy Beef Salad is become my appetizer option. The veggies is fresh, but the beef is too sweet for me. Even the sweetness of the beef is damaged the freshness flavor of the veggies. Very pity…..

In rainy day is suitable if I order their Tom Yum Goong. The soup is quite balance between sour, spicy, sweet & salty. Nice!

For main course, I order Pandan Chicken. The chicken is marinated in sesame oil,soy sauce,garlic,red onion,ginger,etc. Then wrap it with Pandan leave and fried it. And serve it with Thai sauce. Their Pandan Chicken is delicious!

For closing, I choose the most famous thai dessert : Steamed Tapioca with Coconut Sauce. The tapioca is steamed well, not too hard, not too tender. The coconut sauce is savory. Quite good! But my fave one is at XO Suki. I think they have a better version of steamed tapioca.

Bandar Jakarta

Standard

Bandar Jakarta is the most famous seafood restaurant in Jakarta. This is my 4th time I dine in this restaurant. The second first I ate in Ancol branch. This time I”ve invited by one of my family member to her birthday party at Alam Sutera branch. As usually this place is always fully booked on weekend. You have to make a reservation first. They took the concept of open air restaurant and absolutely the seafood is guaranteed fresh, you can choose it by yourself. I didn’t really enjoy our seat today, because they located us at the dimly lit place, huh!

Our family is the biggest fans of seafood, so we’re gonna have a crazy party today! First dish is Kepiting Saus Padang (Chili Crab). Well, actually crab is not my fave seafood, because it’s too complicated to eat that kind of food. The taste is so so…..not too special. The seasoning is less prominent, sorry…..

Second dish is Kerang Saus Padang (Chili Mussels). Okay, I’ve no comment in this dish, because it has the same seasoning with the first one.

Our 3rd dish is my fave : Udang Telur Asin (Shrimp sauteed with Egg Yolk Salted). Quite tasty! The egg yolk salted is not over dominated the taste of shrimp. Balancing is the key!

Shrimp w/ Egg Yolk Salted

Cumi Goreng Tepung (Fried Squid) is become our 4th dish. Crispy and tender. Everybody loves it!

Fried Squid

Next dish is Ikan Kuwe Bakar (Grilled Pompano Fish). I don’t like the pompano meat, it’s too abrasive/rough. I’d rather choose the carp or tilapia. More tender and they have a fat part. But it’s not my birthday, so I have to pretend to enjoy it, haha….

Grilled Pompano

Next….mmmpphhh…Udang Bakar Madu (Grilled Shrimp with Honey). The taste is absolutely sweet, not too good, I prefer their Egg Yolk Salted.

Grilled Shrimp w/ Honey

The last dish….finally….haha…..(it’s like a never-ending order if I dine in with my big family, cause we’re the food lover!)….Ikan Kuwe Saus Pedas (Grilled Chili Pompano Fish). This dish is also quite dissapointed….I don’t like it…the sauce is too ordinary in taste & the fish not marinated well…..so the seasoning is not soaked in the fish meat.

And one thing that always be my attention if I come to the restaurant is about their service. The service at this place is really bad. Wrong notes when take our order, our order is mixed up with other guess’s order for 3 times, wew….and surprisingly they didn’t admit it & we have to argue about that. We have to pay what we didn’t order! O,come on….for the famous restaurant like this, they treat us like a trash! What a shame! Sorry, but I’ve to tell the truth! They must re-training their staff! Helloooo….the customer is the king!
