Tugu Kunstring here is a restaurant, hotel, art gallery, and bar, all made into one! Located at Menteng area on a hook of the road. It's been here for 2-3 years and is just simply gorgeous! The interior just screams royalty and a pretty detailed one at that! From the same group as Tugu hotel in Malang, Lombok, Bali, and Blitar, which also includes Lara Djonggrang, Dapur Babah, Shanghai Blue. Fyi, if you want to just go sight seeing without dining in, it's fine too, so don't be shy!

Are you ready to indulge yourself in some chocolatey goodness? This is a place where you'll be craving hard for chocolates, it's Moreau at Kemang! Saw this on a random post on Instagram and set our minds to come and try it! How can you not when you see these, just read on and you'll understand why!
The name Common Grounds is probably something you're already familiar with as it is to us. Yes, this is that Common Grounds from Citywalk and it has finally reached the West! Yay for us! They have step foot into the newly opened mall, Neo Soho, right across Central Park. Now I know where to get my proper coffee and brunch!
Most people in Jakarta loves a good Nasi Padang because of the strong flavors and very affordable price for a huge portion. You can also add more sauce for free, it's no wonder everyone loves it! Here's a newcomer in that area called Padang Merdeka and they've opened at Kota Tua. It's a newborn local brand, so you won't find it elsewhere. It's kind of too bad that they are not allowed to put a signage tho, since it's the general rule of Kota Tua. Got a bit of difficulties trying to promote the restaurant, so for you who has read this post, please do spread the word and location! They're located at Jl. Lada No. 1, right across of BNI Kota Tua before the station. Exact position is on the right side of the road and when you find a red gate that says "Lada No. 1", go straight in and you'll find Padang Merdeka there. Don't worry about parking lots, just go to the closed gate, if you said you're going to eat there, they'll gladly open them for you and let me tell you, the space inside is pretty huge!

A celebration for all carnivores out there! AB Steak has finally opened in Jakarta, on 23rd April 2017 to be exact and it was only for dinner (06:30 pm - 10:30 pm) and you need to book your seat. I don't really know if it's going to be like that permanently or just for the time being. Sorry all.. anyways, this place is NOT an all you can eat as there are some who asked about that. It's an ala carte just like Akira Back, the chef is also from Akira Back and even on the same building as Akira Back, at MD Building, Kuningan, Mezzanine floor (just 1 floor away from the lobby)!
AB Steak here is a modern steakhouse with Korean accent!
Calling all Singaporeans, those who have been to Singapore, or just a big fan of Singapore cuisine, this kind of food is something you might be very familiar with! It's something that could be called as Hawker dish, the name is Bak Chor Mee or Mee Pok, which literally means Minced Meat Noodle!
Before this Ming Fa Bak Chor Mee that we are going to talk about, we've reviewed another Bak Chor Mee stand in Jakarta before called Yong He Noodles making this our second Bak Chor Mee in Jakarta review! Ming Fa here is located at PIK's Fresh Market, the ones that are just right outside the market, in line with other noodle shops there!

My first visit to Porto Bistreau is to the one at Central Park, which is actually their 2nd branch. The first one is at Serpong. Porto here is from Altima Group, so it's the same as Nanny's Pavilion, Karnivor, Wild Grass in Bandung, and others. Went here for a breakfast, which is pretty rare and weird, even for me. Who am I kidding? Central Park is not exactly a type of breakfast kind of mall and yet here I am..lol! No, we don't live in the hotel or apartment near here if that's what you're thinking, guess we're just that random!
Porto Bistreau here opens from 8 in the morning, which is why they have a breakfast menu and there're 6 of them, available only till 11 am, so it's not an all day breakfast. Be sure to keep that mind!

It's mid 2017 and yet coffee game still going strong here in Jakarta! Here's another new coffee shop appearing in Dharmawangsa Square called Maoki Coffee. It's inside Barber Club in the back corner and I start to wonder why are there so many coffee shops that is inside a barber shop!

Well after the coffee hype, now comes the new hype; Cheesecake! This isn't exactly a new place but since cheesecake shops have been appearing here and there nowadays, this one is a must to come into the spotlight, it's Cheesess!

Hey everyone! How's April treating you? Good I hope. Did you know about The Cheesecake Factory? Nope, this is not the old cheesecake factory but it's the real one that is imported right from the US! Well, if I'm not mistaken, I think the old one even changed it's name to Almond Tree now? Is it? Well, let's just continue about this one!
