Soto Tangkar PPC, Pluit

It's time for soto tangkar... this is not like any other soto tangkar, you can replace the meat with the beef satay  to be served on your soto tangkar. This is extremely yummy and you really have to try it if you're in Pluit area. But, you have to come early as by 1pm there would be nothing left there. So, the early bird catches the worm...!! hahaha

As you can see from the pic, it is really tempting... just simply add chilly into it and you can enjoy the best soto tangkar in town.. :p

Soto tangkar PPC is quite famous actually... but you'll never expect that the place is located only in a basketball court with just a 'gerobak' and  2 wooden tables and chairs. If it's too crowd then you'll have to find a seat along the basketball court. 

Address:     Komplek Pluit Putri Center
              (Lap.basket, pas masuk komplek langsung bs kliatan lap basketnya)
              Jl. Pluit Raya, Jakarta
Price: 15K-25K

Akane: Tokyo Cuisine

This was my second time to dine here in Akane: Tokyo Cuisine and it is located in Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ground Floor, just right beside the entrance of the main lobby.
The first time I ate here was with my bosses during our lunch time. As I went there with my bosses so I couldn't take pics of the food 'till yesterday then I could take the pics :p
I ordered a menu set on my first visit..which includes a bowl of rice, soup and 3 main dishes. This menu set is unique because there are more than 5 variants of rice we can choose from.. (from ordinary rice till several types of fried rice), as for the soup there are several variants as well and it goes to the main dishes too.. for the main dishes there are almost 20 or more variants. At first I this menu set must be a lot, I wonder whether I could finish it up.. But the fact is that the 3 main dishes were served in quite considerable small portions. My main dishes were Grilled Mackerel, Beef Steak & Beansprout with beef (Sorry no pics). However, among all of it, I love the beef steak most, the meat was so juicy, tender and it's perfectly seasoned. In my opinion, Akane serves very authentic Japanese food so yesterday I suggested my friends to have dinner in Akane, I wanna let them try the food there.

When we entered the place, all the tables were fully occupied.. lucky enough there was a group of people just about to leave, so we immediately take over their table. When we sat, we really felt like we are eating in Japan because almost all of the guests there were Japanese hahaha.. Well, as soos as we sat, the waitress gave us the menu and we ordered these:
Hamburg 300g

The Sugarush, Bandung

It was just another trip to Bandung again... just right after the Christmas' celebration in our church, we went to The Sugarush.. Yup, it's a new cafe located in Braga area, near Wendy's. The place is quite eye-catching as the design is really unique, there is a "take me away" counter where people can easily buy breads from there. My friends and I were curious to see how the inside looks like.. and yes we were amazed by the interior. It's more to urban styles yet there is a classic touch as well... the ceilings in The Sugarush caught my eyes as soon as I entered the place as there are so many hanging lights on the ceilings. All of them were so classic and unique. I can say this place is really cozy to hang out with your loved ones :)

Grasshopper Thai

It was time for lunch after a class... my friends and I were starving, we were quite bored to eat in our canteen so we decided to try the new Thai restaurant in Benton Junction. The place is quite an eye-catching, it's so cozy and I definitely love the interior but too bad we're not allowed to take picture there. Anyway, as soon as we sat, the waitress approached us and gave the menu as I looked through the menu, we decided to order these:
