NEOMA LIPPO MALL PURI

So there's this new specialty coffee place in Lippo Mall Puri (At the J.Co Lobby) called Neoma, which actually means New Moon / New Beginning. This place is a hidden paradise! Despite its seemingly isolated place, you might want to check out their instagram to find their exact location, since it's on the far end of the mall lobby! If you knew Osaka Maru, the japanese restaurant is now replaced by Neoma, a far more eccentric place to be in! 


This place is a joint venture of the passionate creators of Mionette, one of my favorite cake house in Px Pavillion, and the prominent coffee roaster, Nagadi Coffee. Their friendship then gave birth to the idea of creating this place for coffee mongers and jolly eaters in a community!

ONE DIMSUM PLUIT

I'm not sure what's up with Pluit, but here's yet another new dimsum place where it truly belongs! It's called One Dimsum, located in parallel with Wing Heng, its level competitor that hoards great taste and open 24hrs! Let's hope this one meets the expectation as well, how about we find out! Before we start, this location is already located in your GPS, so it's easy to find. tap tap!

SEOUL YUMMY LIPPO MALL KEMANG


A new new place for K-poppers in South Jakarta! Let me present to you, Seoul Yummy at Lippo Mall Kemang, directly franchised from Singapore! Their numerous outlets in Singapore are just a dawwn for another expansion, this time to Jakarta. It's so fresh as this place is newly opened, a week before the fasting month began. Fresh!

HARIO CAFE PLUIT

Yet another new collective space in Pluit is open!! Hario, the most prominent heatproof glass manufacturer from Japan has opened a... WAIT! HAHAHA so before I even start, I said what I said! Hario was originally a heatproof glass manufacturer who tried their fortune in producing syphon coffee maker... and the rest is history. Having become the most well known manual brewing coffee maker manufacturer, they opened their 2nd conceptual space of dine, drink, and shop. The 2nd store is located near to Pluit Village, which is already registered in your GPS! Their first store is located in Aeon Mall BSD, if you happen to wonder!


The shop aims to carry the style of Japanese modern heritage. Longing to deliver visitors 3 distinct experience in the store, which are flavor, presentation, as well as a space to belong, the concept that has already been opened in Tokyo, Japan has been leading on its own as a retailer that offers experience more than just a product.

WHAT'S NEW AT NOMZ JAKARTA

I am so SURPRISED when I got to visit Nomz! It's got a HUGE change in the menu, so if you haven't been there for quite some time, just scrap the idea of old Nomz and find out more here!

Before I make you read and visualize and drool to your own fantasy, I'll give the discretion that this is a non-halal restaurant. Its main character is about seemingly casual food with a twist of ingredients, so don't judge a food by its plating, it's just neat and will lead your palate to the dancing!


Let's begin the FEAST!

THE LAUNCH OF CIMB NIAGA INDOSAT OOREDOO CARD


Yes! It's definitely something totally new here. The collaboration between CIMB Niaga, JCB, and Indosat to launch a new kind of credit card called CIMB Niaga Indosat Ooredoo Card. This was definitely a different experience and new opportunity for us to be able to attend this exclusive event!

SISTERFIELDS JAKARTA - PIK AVENUE


Yes, the Sisterfields from Bali that everyone has all been talking about is now here!! It's been on the coming soon section for quite some time in PIK Avenue as they are located near the lobby, so everyone that comes can see them clearly. Since the day we saw their poster, we've been excited to the point of questioning whether or not it's really opening because of how long they took to open but here they are now!! Just a quick fun fact now, did you know that they're called Sisterfields cause the foods are made for sisters, which is why they're all so cute and feminine looking. Though a lot of guys also enjoys their brunch menus as well..lol!

THE TAKEMORI JAPANESE DINING DHARMAWANGSA


The Takemori here is from the same group as Yakinikuya that we reviewed in December. Located at Dharmawangsa Square as well, when Yakinikuya is in the basement, Takemori here is on the 2nd floor. Just go into the elevator next to Yakinikuya and once you got into the 2nd floor, it's on the left side. Pretty much the exact location just on different floors!

CHONG QING LIU YI SHOU HOTPOT PANTAI MUTIARA JAKARTA


Yes, I know the name is pretty hard to remember and you might stifle a giggle like I did but after searching about it, we found out that Chong Qing is actually the name of a city in China. Just remember the Liu Yi Shou if it's easier..lol! In their Instagram and in maps, they also just went with Liu Yi Shou.

ZENRAKU DASHI CHAZUKE GRAND INDONESIA


Now here's something different from the Japanese cuisine! It's usually either sushi, ramen, donburi, and other typical Japanese foods but this time, it's Chazuke! What is a Chazuke you might ask? It's just cooked rice poured with green tea, dashi, or plain hot water, a pretty simple Japanese dish.

DODEE PAIDANG INDONESIA


I think this is a pretty popular restaurant in Australia but there this is more of a Thai street food. Have never been to the one in Australia but this DoDee Paidang in Jakarta opened in the end of 2017 at Puri Indah Mall, next to Ah Mei Cafe.

KURA SUSHI PIK


Anyone that sees this opening in Jakarta will definitely be interested to try like myself, as we have never been to Japan, so we have never tried that legendary gyukatsu that everyone who went to Japan will eat. We are definitely thankful that Jakarta has started to have a lot of these opening here!

MEE POK LAU LIM PIK


Yeah!! Another Bak Chor Mee is here! It's also in PIK, in line with Sweet Hut. This one is called Lau Lim Mee Pok and it's of course, a Singapore cuisine. Open from 7 am, so you can have this for breakfast as they also sell breakfast foods like butter toast and half boiled egg, all very Singaporean!

WAKI BBQ JAKARTA


Woohoo! Say hello to the new barbecue shop in town, Waki BBQ! This is supposed to be a Japanese BBQ but it somewhat has Korean dishes as well. It's located at Thamrin area near UOB Plaza, just hit it up in your GPS!

WARUNG BALI BEDUGUL PIK


My current favorite restaurant!! This Balinese restaurant at Pantai Indah Kapuk here is called Warung Bali Bedugul and it's located next to Warung Rawit.

SUSHI MATSU JAKARTA


New sushi house spotted!! This one is called Sushi Matsu and it's located at Menteng, near Grand Indonesia. The sushi here is all very photogenic, which is what attracted me in the first place, so let's try it!

JIN BAO PIK


Found something new here at Pantai Indah Kapuk! Located at Ruko Metro Galeri Broadway area, the one that has Starbucks and Burger King. This place is called Jin Bao and it's a Chinese restaurant but the plating is super pretty and nice, which is unlike the usual Chinese restaurant.

NISHIAZABU YUKASI RATU PLAZA JAKARTA


Randomly came here as we are looking for a less mainstream rerstaurant..lol! Surprisingly, this is inside Ratu Plaza, yes, the same Ratu Plaza where people usually came to fix their electronics..lol!

PASOLA RITZ CARLTON PACIFIC PLACE JAKARTA


Pasola here is actually the new Pacific Restaurant from Ritz Carlton Pacific Place, so what's the difference? Can't say much as it's 80% still the same..lol! I think they only change the interior to a more modern one but from the food, it's still 80% the same, which is why this post won't say that much. If you want the more detailed review, just click on the link!
