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.
