Mister Donut

Looking for a nice place to have your tea time? You may try Mister Donut. Btw, it's also good having these donuts at home together with your family members.

Mister Donut offers unique shape of donuts that look different with regular donuts.

They claimed that Mister Donut is the number one donut in Japan. Is it true? I also have no idea :p

After seeing all of the donuts variants, we decided to try Angel French and Pink Fashion donuts. The donuts' name sound fancy, right? 


Angel French IDR8.000

Angel French is a French Cruller donut is filled with angel cream. The taste is yummy.
 

Pink Fashion IDR8.000

Pink Fashion is an Old Fashion donut that is quite crunchy. This donut is not bad either.

Although these donuts are a bit sweet for us, but overall the taste are nice.


Iced Cappucino IDR22.000

For the drink, we tried Iced Cappuccino.

Will I go there again? Yes and I will try another variant of donuts.

Pecori An

Wondering to try having lunch and dinner at Pecori An? Maybe this review can help you to decide.

Located at ChinaTown Point, Pecori An is a Japanese restaurant that offers quite a lot of range of Japanese dishes.

We tried Beef Hamburg set and Unatama Eel & Gee Set. Each set comes with soup, free rice refill and as many side dishes as you want. This set sounds promising right? But....don't be happy too fast..

After we ordered, we directly went to the booth to take soup, rice and side dishes. Surprisingly, that booth had empty soup and only had left over side dishes. Even the rice was almost finished. Below is the picture. You can judge by yourself. 



We directly asked the waitress to add the soup and the side dishes for us. She said ok but until we finished the main dishes, they didn't add the soup and side dishes.

For the food taste, Unatama Eel and Gee set was tasty. It was like home cooked and best to eat when it was still hot.

Beef Hamburg set was so-so. I prefer Unatama Eel and Gee set than Beef Hamburg.

Although Unatama Eel and Gee was tasty, but we were really disappointed with their service. Maybe it wasn't our lucky day. One thing for sure, I will blacklist this restaurant from my food list.

Will I go there again? No.


Beef Hamburg Set S$12.80

Unatama Eel and Gee Set S$14.80

Fiesta Steak

Do you want to know what is my most favorite steak so far? It's a Chicken Steak from Fiesta Steak.

Maybe some of you are wondering...Really?? I proudly say yes. Even though I try other steaks (Chicken Steak and Beef Steak) that's so called "use import meat, contains high quality of meat, more delicious", I still feel that my most favorite steak is this chicken steak.

I like this Chicken Steak so much. The chicken is tender and crispy. The sauce is also nice. But, is this the only reason to make this steak to become the most favorite? The taste is delicious indeed, but I have a reason why this steak is so special for me.

During my childhood, my mom brought me (one or two times) to eat this chicken steak. Last time, it's very seldom for us to eat at restaurant. So eating this steak brings me a joyful feeling. In that time, I also order rice to eat with this steak. So I can feel full for a longer time :)

 
It's become a habit for me that every time I eat this steak, I always order rice. Rice and this chicken steak are the best combination. Weird right? My girlfriend also says so :p

Until now, the taste is still the same. Salute for their management to keep maintaining the food quality and their affordable price.

Anyway, until now, Fiesta Steak is still survived. It means that many people like that restaurant, right? :)

 
Will I go there again? Yes.

Saveur

Today I will review about a famous French restaurant in Singapore named Saveur.

Saveur is a brainchild of two young and enterprising friends that served quality French cuisine with affordable price.

As requested by my teammate to have her farewell lunch at Saveur, we decided to go to Saveur`s Purvis branch.

Over there, we ordered 3 lunch courses set. Each set (S$22.90++) consists of one entrée (Mushroom Soup, Saveur`s Pasta or Garden Salad), one Main (Duck Confit, Chicken Roulade, Pork Belly or Seabass) and one Dessert (Pistachio Panna Cotta or Crème Brulee).
 

Chicken Roulade

Chicken Roulade is a Chicken thigh stuffed with foie gras-infused chicken farce, creamy Basmati Rice and Parmesan sauce. This Chicken Roulade is very delicious. Chicken is tender, creamy Basmati Rice is also nice.
 

Duck Confit

Duck Confit consists of duck with Mashed Potato, Saute Shitake with Parsley and Garlic, Orange segments and orange infused natural juice. This duck is amazingly crunchy. This is one of the most popular dish at Saveur.
 

Saveur`s Pasta

Saveur's Pasta is a pasta that comes with Chilli Oil, finely chopped Konbu, Minced Pork Sauce, Chives and Sakura Ebi. Saveur`s Pasta taste is delicious. It remains me of Indonesian noodle taste.
 

Pistachio Panna Cotta

Pistachio Panna Cotta is a Pistachio flavoured cooked cream with ground and caramelized Pistachio. It's a decent dessert to try.
 

Crème Brulee

Crème Brulee is also not bad. It's not too sweet. I like it.

Overall we were happily having our lunch in here. It's really worth to try the 3 lunch courses promo.

FYI, This 3 lunch courses promo are available from Monday - Friday from 12:00 PM - 02:30 PM at Purvis branch. One more thing to take a note, you should make a reservation first prior coming to the restaurant.

Will I go there again? Yes.

Dapur Jawa

Today I will share with you about one mall in Jakarta. I have frequently gone there during my childhood time whenever I went to my grandma's house. The name of this mall is Golden Trully Mall. Amazingly, until now this mall is still managed to survive.

During my last trip to Jakarta, me and my girlfriend went to Golden Trully Mall again after more than 20years I never went back to this place. Woah very long time, right? It's because my grandma had moved to other place, so I didn't go to that mall again.

After exploring and at the same time trying my best to recall my memory about Golden Trully Mall, we were having lunch at Dapur Jawa


Dapur Jawa is an Indonesian traditional cuisine restaurant. We ordered Gurame Saos Mangga (Gourami Fish with Mango Sauce), Sayur Asem, Rice and Wedang Jahe.

Gurame Saos Mangga IDR63.000


Gurame Saus Mangga is a fried Gourami fish fillet with Mango sauce. The mango that they use hasn't ripe yet. The fish is fresh. Combination between Mango sauce and Gourami fish are superb. This dish is beyond our expectation.
 

Sayur Asem IDR10.000 and Sambel IDR7.000

Sayur asem is a traditional Indonesian dish that consists of Peanuts, Melinjo, Long Beans, Chayote and Corn cooked in tamarind based soup. Dapur Jawa version of Sayur Asem is tasty.
 

Wedang Jahe IDR12.000
 
Wedang Jahe is also a traditional Indonesian beverage that consists of Ginger and Palm Sugar / Granulated Cane Sugar. This beverage will make your body warm.

Overall, we enjoy having lunch at Dapur Jawa

Will I go there again? Yes.

sQue

Recently I was very busy at the office that I needed to come on Saturday to finish up my works. To pamper myself after finishing the works, I purposely looked for a nice late lunch meal near Clarke Quay area.

After looking around, I decided to have lunch at sQue. sQue (pronounced as skew) is a restaurant that have highlights of extensive choices of bottled beers from all over the world. They are proudly claimed that they currently have more than 200 different international beers.

Although this restaurant is famous on their beers collections, it's not the reason why I choose this place and sorry I don't try the beers so I will not review it :p.

I choose sQue because of many good reviews from other food bloggers.

Because of curiosity, I order Half Spring Chicken with honey mustard mashed potatoes.

Spring Chicken contains of Roasted Chicken, Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes (honey mustard or black pepper).

This spring chicken is tasty. It's marinated well with the sauce. This chicken is quite big and it will make you full. So if you come alone, it's better to choose half chicken.

Brussels sprouts is fresh and crunchy. Honey Mustard Mashed Potatoes is also not bad.

Will I go there again? Yes.

Half Spring Chicken S$13.95

Sin Heng Claypot Bak Koot Teh

Many people said "No matter how far restaurant / food stall is located, it will be always crowded as long as the food is delicious". It's true indeed. They will be surely willing to travel long distance to satisfy their appetites.

One of the place that belongs to this category is Sin Heng Claypot Bak Koot Teh. Can you imagine? Although it's located very far from mrt station, this place is almost every time full packed.

How do I know of this place? My colleague tell me about it. Because of my curiosity, I visited this place.


 
Over there, I ordered Sin Heng`s Special Claypot Bak Koot Teh, Claypot Noodle and Youtiau.
 
Sin Heng`s Special Claypot Bak Koot Teh $8.00 (small portion)

Sin Heng`s Special Claypot Bak Koot Teh is made with fresh ingredients, simmered in rich stock of Chinese herbs and spices. It's more than 20 years of history. It's delicious. The meat is also tender.

Claypot Noodle S$6.00

Claypot Noodle also is not bad. But for me, it's better to try their Bak Koot Teh than Claypot Noodle especially if this is the first time you visit this restaurant. Unless, if you have been here before or if you have a big appetite to try Claypot Noodle for second round :)

Will I go there again? Yes.

Creme Glacee

Today I will share with you about a cute ice cream that I find at Kelapa Gading Mall (Jakarta - Indonesia). The name of this ice cream stall is Creme Glacee.

This ice cream is cute because they make-over the ice cream to become look like puppy (From the appearance, I guess it's a puppy. Sorry if I misinterpret it :p)

Beside having cute design, they also claim that their ice cream is a handmade and healthy ice cream.

Creme Glacee has 11 different flavors for you to try:
- Choco Crunchy (Ice Cream Chocolate with some Crunchy)
- Strawberry Crunchy (Strawberry Ice Cream with some Crunchy)
- Matcha Creme (Vanilla Ice Cream with Green Tea Powder)
- Valley (Vanilla Ice Cream with Choco Barleys)
- Cappomond (Cappuccino Ice Cream with Almonds)
- Micho Creme (Tiramisu Ice Cream with Chocolates)
- Cookies and Creme (Vanilla Ice Cream with Cookies)
- Strawchip (Strawberry Ice Cream with Choco chip)
- Tutti Frutti (Vanila Ice Cream with Fruits)
- Chocolate Cheese (Chocolate Ice Cream with Cheese)
- Rum Raisin (Vanilla Ice Cream with Rum and Raisins)


I tried Cappomond. Even though they didn't have almond, they changed the almond with some cracker. It was very tasty. The Cappuccino taste was strong. Coffee lovers would like it so much.

FYI, currently they only have a temporary stall at Kelapa Gading Mall in the conjunction of Weekend Bazar Event. I hope in near future, they plan to open a permanent stall :)

Will I go there again? Yes.

Hakata Ippudo

Looking for a ramen restaurant near Mohamed Sultan Road? You may visit Hakata Ippudo restaurant.

Thanks to my lunch office buddies for celebrating my birthday at this restaurant.

I ordered Akamaru Shin-Aji set lunch. This set lunch comes with a drink and one side dish. They have three different side dish options: Gyoza, Mini Salad & Ice Cream, Karaage. I choose Gyoza for the side dish.

For this set lunch, there is also special combination topping to add on. For just $7, you may get Flavoured Egg, Simmered Pork Belly & Seaweed. Too bad that they served this special combination on separate bowl with ramen bowl. I prefer that they put together on the ramen bowl (especially for the egg).  It's because if they put altogether with ramen, the egg become warm and the meat become tastier.

Akamaru Shin-Aji ramen is not bad. The waiter tells us that this ramen is the most favourites dish.

FYI, This set lunch is only available from Monday - Friday 11:30AM - 03:00PM (last order at 02:30PM).

Will I go there again? Maybe yes.

Cut The Crab

Good news for Seafood lovers in Jakarta. I found one nice seafood restaurant named Cut The Crab. Located at Kelapa Gading, Cut The Crab is specialized on crab and also offers other delicious and fresh seafood.

This restaurant has a unique style for serving their dishes. Instead of using plate to serve the dishes, they put paper on the top of the table and after that they pour the seafoods from bucket into that table. You will be using bare hands to eat the dishes. They also provide paper apron for us to wear. It's to protect our clothes, so it will not be dirty.


Single Jingle and Jaws Seafood Mix

Over there, we tried Single Jingle and Jaws Seafood Mix. Every dishes come with sauce. You may choose between Original sauce, Salty sauce, Lemon Twist sauce and Sweet sauce. Each sauce has three spiciness level: Not Spicy, Medium and XXX.  Based on their recommendation, I chose Medium Original Sauce for Single Jingle and Not Spicy Sweet sauce for Jaw Seafood Mix.
 

Single Jingle IDR180.000

Single Jingle consists of small size crab. The meat is delicious, sweet and fresh. The sauce makes the crab taste superb.

Jaws Seafood Mix IDR325.000


Jaws Seafood Mix consists of Prawn, Lobster, Crawfish, Mushroom, Green Mussel, Corn, Broccoli and Carrot. The Prawn, Lobster and Crawfish sizes are big. The meat is also fresh and crunchy. The sauce is also delicious. You will be satisfied with this dish.

Although the price is quite expensive, it's worth to try. Because the seafood quality is very good and the portion is big enough.

Will I go there again? Yes.



Below are step by step on how they serve the dishes.
