:: Green Goodness ::

One of my favourite fruits is this green kiwi which believed to contain more vitamin C than oranges plus other benefits too.

A little to pricey for the sweetness and sourness at once. Glam?

:: Rati Rati ::

Received a glossy red box that says ‘Open Your Dream’ and when I opened it of course I was not dreaming as the content was so heavenly.

You could scent the fresh blueberry upon opening the box and since it was not sliced then it was a messy foreplay with creme and the sponge cake to start of with.

I love the texture of the blueberry sponge cake and its filling but I am sorry to say that I am not a big fans of that creme de la creme. Luckily fresh blueberries managed to calm myself down and enjoy every bite of late night indulgence l would say. Two words: very satisfying!

Unfortunately, the brochure attached was not as appealing as its product plus with its broken English here and there and (pardon me) the design could have been way better than what it is now (proof read is needed here). But hey forget about the marketing stuffs and just enjoy the cake! Everybody says YUMMMM!!

Having a late evening class and went home after with horrible traffic condition plus nothing on the table were meant for impulsive decision when it comes to hunger.

I was looking at the flyer from PHD and hey it wasnot an usual one. The new flyer came in a glossier piece of paper, more sophisticated wording and divine appeal. All in all to introduce its new product – the Thin Crust Club line pizza.
It took 20 minutes to arrive and came not in ordinary red box ala pizza hut, it came in a black box instead. I believe this is to allure the more premium market for the line (somehow it feels like marzano)

My pick was the Italian beef pronto that has quite a decent topping and premium taste, do not expect the old school style of mountained toppings. This one was subtle but surprisingly tasty with that crispy thin crust as promised and this line only comes in one size contains 8 pieces.

Other selections in the menu were: Spicy chicken soy, Salmon shiitake mayo, and Spinach cream cheese (priced at IDR64K to IDR79K)

All in all, the pizza and cheese wheezy plus the delivery cost come to IDR116K, quite reasonable especially when you are feeling like eating something.

:: Time for Zen ::

I could hardly recall when was the last time to visit this place again after sometimes being attached to cozy.

The other day I managed to slot in a session for 90mins foot reflexiology and since I did not have anyone I preferred in particular so I left the decision to the receptionist.

I was attended by female therapist and the usual routine followed. Started with a warm water and salt dip upstairs while the shoulder was massaged, then led to a private room which would fit for 3 guests at one time. A warm rice pillow was placed either on the shoulder, back of the neck or lower back, whichever preffered. Huge massage chair I would say.

Pressure, skills and techniques made my 90minutes such a bliss, aslept through almost up to the end of the session when she offered me something to drink: water, tea or ginger. Ginger was my pick and the session was not ended there, another round for my shoulder, back and neck for the finale.

All in all, Zen has successfully maintain its consistency of service and for IDR98k for 90mins session I think it is worthed.

Book early as it might get very busy for afternoon to closing time.

:: Sate Khas Senayan ::

I have passed this outlet for countless time, but one day decided to dine in there. Rainy Jakarta did not stop me to try this Indonesian flare restaurant. I was first browsed through its website about the menu etc, and I found it quite interesting to try. Well, I was not a first-timer to this local chain, in fact that I tried its dish in Sate Senayan Express that is located in Food Louvre Grand Indonesia. Promising more variety of dishes than its tiny outlet in foodcourt, this outlet in Kebon Sirih might always been the choice for both locals and foreigners.

 

Ambiance: The 2-floor span restaurant fills with Indonesian flare here and there, reflected in the choice of wooden tables and chairs. Try to get a table by the window with a plenty of natural light, as otherwise I would feel a little too dimmed inside. I was expecting a traditional tune just like Tesate does to welcome its guests, but in Sate Senayan they played kind of a 70’s pop tunes back then. A little nostalgic I would say and the background music has changed over an hour.

 

Food: Even-though it carries the title ‘Sate’ but one could expect more than just ‘sate ayam’ or ‘sate kambing’ here. The extensive menu would ensure to satisfy everybody’s taste buds. Starting from appetizers such as ‘otak-otak’ or ‘tahu isi’, then the main dishes consist of selection or rice or noodle that comes with condiments, and it still followed by vegetable dishes, snacks plus meat or chicken dishes to go with. So if you are not sure which one to pick, then go for rice dishes that comes with almost everything in a plate, just like I did. My pick was Nasi Pecel Empal Komplit – a Javanese style steamed mixed vegetables with peanut sauce, comes with shredded beef empal, serundeng (shredded fried coconut) and plenty of crackers (yeayyy!!). Too bad that they do not serve Nasi merah or brown rice as it becomes a common thing in many restaurants these days.

To start was Tahu Isi, but this comes a little later than the main dish and I felt that the oil that has been used was not that new as it carries after-taste for other fried things, too greasy indeed. However, it tasted good with full fillings. My mum ordered Soto Betawi and it was okay, was expecting to be warmer.

 

Service: very friendly and attentive, as far as I could remember they have more staffs than the guests on that afternoon. I believe that one lady as a captain would ensure her crew and everything were in order, she would consistently check on every single order, not just my table but others too.

 

Price: an appetizer, main dishes for 4 guests and drinks plus 3 dishes to-go comes to IDR500K. Quite pocket-friendly.
