PACIFIC RESTAURANT RITZ CARLTON PACIFIC PLACE

Sunday is almost here! Time to plan your Sunday Brunch! This is my first time trying Ritz Carlton PP's brunch and even first time being here I guess? Usually I went to the one at Kuningan. The Sunday Brunch here costs IDR 398K++ per pax but don't be surprised, since the food's variety is super wide, you can almost find anything here! Let's see what's inside!


The name's Pacific Restaurant and honestly, it's my first time hearing the name. I guess they rarely have promos or so? Located on the 6th floor. Fyi, I don't really know if it's an everyday buffet or if the buffet is just on Sundays but hotels usually offers everyday buffet, right? Anyways, for more detail I guess you can just ring the Ritz Carlton PP personally, we'll include a phone number belo!

THE NEW BOTTEGA RISTORANTE FAIRGROUNDS SCBD


To those who thought Bottega Ristorante has closed down, here's the truth! They didn't, they just moved to Fairgrounds, SCBD! After moving they also changed a few things to make the place look more approachable and casual to suit their reasonably priced foods. Did you think they achieved their goal? Let's take a look!

KINTARO SUSHI PIK

The competition for sushi restaurants has been pretty tough lately. All are trying their best to appeal on a glance, from Sushi Hiro's sushi on stairs, Sushi Sen's sushi house, Sushi Teishoku with its sushi ferris wheel, Sushi Taka's sushi tree, and now Kintaro Sushi with its bridge! Hopefully the taste will be as appealing as the looks!


Located right next to Cake A Boo at Pantai Indah Kapuk! Came here on its opening day, so the ones that came are mostly family or business partner but it's still a full house!

HANYANG GARDEN KOREAN RESTO

Sure nowadays there's been a lot of new Korean BBQ restaurants that are far more photogenic and modern but actually, not all those new ones are good in taste. Usually people flock those places only because it's a new 'hit' place and only a few that is truly good. That however, cause these old-yet-still-standing-strong ones, like HanYang here to be forgotten! Now, we just went to dine at HanYang Garden Senopati here on impulse and pretty random if you ask me..lol! It's probably because we didn't know where else to try some Korean BBQ and we need something new, as we pretty much have tried all. Not trying to boast here but it's really true!


The place is actually pretty big! Though it's a Korean BBQ, it's not the type where the meat is grilled at our table like most Korean BBQ. It will be served to us once it's cooked and because I wanted to take some shots, I asked them to put hold the raw meats on our table before cooking it. Sorry for the hassle!

KOKORO MAZE SOBA GRAND INDONESIA


Yeap, after the second soba Kabuto Mazesoba at PIK, here's another one, Kokoro Mazesoba! Please don't tell me that this will be the next trend, tho I don't really mind.. Kokoro here is located in the 5th floor of Grand Indonesia's West Mall. Wow, it's been a long time since there's anything interesting there, huh? Went there on a weekend and it's a full house, making me more curious of how it tastes!

SENSORY LAB COFFEE KELAPA GADING


Yes, the most awaited Sensory Lab from Melb has finally arrived in Jakarta at Mall Kelapa Gading 3 to be exact! Very close to the lobby and right across Starbucks, so it's pretty easy to spot. If you came from a different lobby however and if you're not familiar with this mall like me, you'd get pretty confused..it's embarrassing to admit but I almost got lost here. Plus, the security is very hard to find!

INDONESIAN IFTAR BUFFET AT HERMITAGE MENTENG

Hermitage Hotel here is actually an old building but it was renovated to suit the modern era, though they still kept the Indonesian cultures. I get this feeling that they've been here even before Indonesia's independence day, so I can't really tell if I'm more amazed or more creep out..lol! Don't worry though, I didn't feel any haunting aura while being here and it's all super fine other than the fact that the hotel is super quite and there's almost nobody there! Too bad I didn't take any photos of the corridors to show you their cool antiquity, it's as if we went back in time to the English era. Do try googling it!


What we're gonna talk about is their restaurant called L'Avenue. So during these fasting season, they have a buffet of Indonesian food for IDR 325K++ per person and truth be told, this is my first experience with a local food buffet in a hotel!

LEWIS AND CARROLL FLOWER MARKET GRAND INDONESIA


There's a flower market in Grand Indonesia!! Yuhuu, this time Lewis and Carroll have once again catches our eyes with a new scenery. What's once was only tea, now their new branch have a flower haven! All these gorgeous petals are from @summerpetals and I don't really know if it's just sharing the same spot or a collaboration but these beauties are for sale!

KABUTO MAZESOBA PIK

The second hot soba shop that has entered Jakarta after Yamatoten, here's Kabuto Mazesoba! Located in line with Warung Mevvah at Pantai Indah Kapuk. I personally find this yummy! The savory salty type of soba, just the way I like it and suits my taste better than Kokoro!

NICHI YOBI AT ASUKA JW MARRIOTT JAKARTA


Hope you're ready for some classy high quality Japanese dining, cause we got an amazing chance to try a Japanese restaurant at JW Marriott called Asuka Japanese Dining! Asuka here used to only serve a la carte but just this month, they've created a buffet Sunday sake lunch called Nichi Yobi and that is what we're going to try!
