How do I even start? 8 Treasures group , noodle dish , an empty stomach , 1.5 hours of traffic jam. Expecting our meal to be at least decent.
If you ever tried 8 Treasures hot pot , you must have aware on how high their standard is. + saw a lot of hype from those famous influencers, so we gave it try ourselves 😉
𝑭𝒊𝒓𝒆 𝑻𝒐𝒓𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒅 𝑷𝒐𝒓𝒌 𝑩𝒆𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝑹𝒐𝒍𝒍 𝑫𝒓𝒚 𝑵𝒐𝒐𝒅𝒍𝒆𝒔 What a big let down of a dish 🤮 A noodle house that screwed up their noodle is just a big NO. Was very undercooked, can almost feel the unpleasant floury texture. It just stuck on your teeth on each bite 🙄😞
Its basically very similar to yamien with a very dominant sweet taste and few slices of torched pork belly.
🙋♂️ is a very big fan of noodle, and he simply hated this one. According to 🙋♂️, its the bottom 3 noodle he has ever eaten. Says it all. Sorry 8T 🙏 No hate , just an honest opinion.
𝑪𝒓𝒊𝒔𝒑𝒚 𝑪𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒌𝒆𝒏 𝑪𝒖𝒕𝒍𝒆𝒕 𝑵𝒐𝒐𝒅𝒍𝒆 𝒊𝒏 𝑪𝒐𝒍𝒍𝒂𝒈𝒆𝒏 𝑩𝒓𝒐𝒕𝒉 An ok dish. Slightly better than the dry one. I mean you cant messed up noodle soup huh? Their soup uses no MSG, so the flavor is mainly from the beef stock. Very similar to the usual 8 Treasures' soup that are very rich and fragrant. There 4 soup options: Collagen , Mala-Collagen, Prawn Collagen , and Braised Beef Broth.
The only problem was that the soup wasnt hot enough. It was just barely warm 😔😢
𝑪𝒉𝒊𝒄𝒌𝒆𝒏 𝑾𝒐𝒏𝒕𝒐𝒏 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝑪𝒉𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒊 𝑽𝒊𝒏𝒂𝒊𝒈𝒓𝒆𝒕𝒕𝒆 As expected from their wonton, its GOOD. Very meaty and fresh with the fillings of prawn and chicken. The chilli vinegar is a nice compliment. Wasnt too spicy and more on the sweet side 😍
Overall, idk if this was just a bad batch of foods, but for us it was a big disappointment coming from @8treasuresjkt group. Hopefully only a bad batch tho, a fan of their hotpot 😊🤩
Service wise, it was just so so. Asked for chilli oil , the server said they only got chilli sauce. Pretty sure they have one 😑. Asked for cold ocha refill, they gave hot ocha. Not a significant mistake, but surely a big room for improvement 💓💓💓
Not gonna talk much about this since most of you (if not everyone) know about SUBWAY 🤗❤ They just opened their first store in Jakarta which is at Cilandak Town Square. There will be new branches to open (including PIK) , rumour said. 😁✌
Anw, queue was pretty damn long. However , it was still managebable. We came around 9 am to take a queue number and we got the 1 PM slot. Got our sandwiches at around 2.15 PM 👼
Options are not as much as the one we usually have in SG or other countries but they still have the OG one such as Italian BMT,Spicy Italian, Steak & Cheese, etc. It tastes similar tho. No need to fly to SG for Subway now HEHEHE 😝😎
👧loves hotpot a lil but TOO much. Been here quite a lot especially their Pluit branch bcs they serve PORK 🐷 (sorry guys its non halal). But for those who can't have pork or lard , you can visit their other branches at Senopati / Hang Tuah.
Unfortunately during our visit , their famous pork bone soup wasnt ready (u gotta try their pork bone soup!) 😔😢 But still, had an amazing hot pot experience as always here 😍😘 Their mala soup is VERY STRONG AND TASTY 🌶🔥 If you're not so much into spicy mala taste , mixing it with the chicken / pork soup is a must.
Newest addition to PIK 2's culinary options. As a HUGE fan of fried rice , we just can't resist to try this viral and unique fried rice place 😘😁 Wanted to try the one in Alam Sutera , but we just knew they opened a store at PIK just recently 👏
📸 𝑵𝒂𝒔𝒊 𝑮𝒐𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒈 𝑪𝒂𝒌𝒂𝒍𝒂𝒏𝒈 𝑨𝒔𝒂𝒑 𝑲𝒆𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒃𝒓𝒂𝒏𝒈 WOW. JUST WOW. The scent of kecombrang (torch ginger) spread out inside your mouth. Was not overwhelming and just perfectly balanced. 🙋♂️is not the type who likes kecombrang , but he loved it this time! Very brave and smart in using spices 👌👍
Cakalang wasn't fishy at all and the smokey aroma was a very nice addition to the dish. Might be sliced a bit tiny tho 🤔 Rice was not the mushy and sticky type. It was more on the brittle , dry , and easily separated which is the right one for fried rice.
To make it simple , "NASINYA PERA GA PULEN".
Definitely very unique and had their own distinct character 😍👏
𝑵𝒂𝒔𝒊 𝑮𝒐𝒓𝒆𝒏𝒈 𝑨𝒚𝒂𝒎 𝑺𝒂𝒎𝒃𝒂𝒍 𝑯𝒊𝒋𝒂𝒖 This is more on the simpler fried rice type. Smoked chicken was smokey and juicy. Sambal hijau and anchovies added a fine spicy and salty taste respectively.
For those who enjoy eating bitter bean a.k.a. PETAI , 🙋♂️ strongly recommends you to add em to your fried rice. It enhanced the flavorf of the dish enormously.
𝑶𝒔𝒆𝒏𝒈 𝑨𝒚𝒂𝒎 𝑨𝒔𝒂𝒑 𝑺𝒂𝒎𝒃𝒂𝒍 𝑴𝒂𝒕𝒂𝒉 Smoky , juicy , and slightly crispy on the outside. Everything you could ask from a smoked chicken. Sambal matah was very fresh , spicy , generous , and GOOOOOD OMG. 🤯🤯
Overall, this is very different to your standard nasi goreng. The smoky aroma to their dish and a smart use of spices gives them a noticeable characteristic that others dont have.
In other words , this is a place to go everytime you don't have a clue on what to eat. 🤤🐥 Place is fairly big but most importantly it is very clean and comfy.
We had a pleasant and enjoyable dinner @kembangbawangindonesia . GIVE IT A TRY AND LET US KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS ON IT 😘😉
Worth the hype? Either way, this is perfect to accompany your hot sunny days. There wasn't much queue when we visited during weekday , but weekends must be different 😘 All of their cookies are freshly baked in store. You can sense the buttery cookie aroma once you get there 🍪
📸 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗗𝘂𝗺𝗯𝗼 Cornflakes softserve with cornflakes as topping. Light and not too sweet. Crumbled cornflakes add a nice crunchy texture to it. Really enjoyed the milky cereal infused flavor 😍🍦
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗿𝗼𝗻𝘅 Simple drink consists of coffee and cereal steeped in milk. Pretty basic but on a better side. 😊❤
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗹𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼𝗻 This one is our FAV! 💯 Corn cookie with cornflakes. The corn aroma is definitely there and can still taste the real corn texture in every bite 🤩 The cookie itself is pretty soft but not the chewy type cookie. Gooey on the center and crisp on the edges 👅 A pleasant surprise and surely THE UNDERDOG MENU.
𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗨𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗿 𝗘𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗦𝗶𝗱𝗲 Generous chopped walnut and dark chocochips. Once again, texture is on point. Very gooeeyyy and fudgy!! Just look at the melted chocolate. How sexy it is 👅😍 Walnut is the perfect companion here. Balanced out the chocolaty taste and adds a nutty flavor to it.
Pretty solid YES to come back for more. Solid option for cookies and softserve ice cream 💓💓

Cute and quaint little Italian cuisine restaurant. First impression was that the place has a distinct cozy Italian alley vibe. The colorful exterior with their wooden chair and table brings you to some Italian villages ❤🇮🇹
𝙋𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣 𝘽𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙘𝙖 DAMN ITS GOOD. ITS REALLY GOOD. Fell in love at the first spoon. Pasta was al dente with a mushroom cream sauce that wasn't overwhelming at all.
Steak? Tender and juicy and seasoned perfectly with some salt and peppahh. Not gonna make a fuss for a good medium well steak🥩
𝙎𝙖𝙡𝙢𝙤𝙣 𝘼𝙛𝙛𝙪𝙢𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙩𝙤 𝙋𝙞𝙯𝙯𝙖 Haven't seen much review on this new menu. So here's our view on it 😉 Dough was a bit bready but still have the chewy texture to it. The thin and slightly crisped crust was on our liking. Smoked salmon was fresh. Capers and dill cream complemented the dish very well adding a delicate salty , sour , and olivey taste. Simple, classic , and honest ingredients creating a good pizza 🍕
Def a bargain to their other best selling pizza menu 🤩✌
𝙃𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙮 𝙂𝙤𝙧𝙜𝙤𝙣𝙯𝙤𝙡𝙖 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙠𝙚 Here's the TRICKY one. Saw lots of +/- for this particular menu. Wouldn't say this can be everyone's fav. All comes down to preferences 😊😉
ITS A YES FROM US. 👍
Gorgonzola gives a nice rich and strong cheese flavor and aftertaste. That's where the sweet little honey and sliced green apple comes in handy to provide a nice fresh stir to it. Doesn't melt as much and still gooey on the center. 🧀🧀🧀🧀🧀
Might be a bit too strong for some , but as we mentioned before , comes down to your own liking.
𝑶𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒍𝒍, Really enjoyed our dinner at Emilia. Service was superb. Got to give credit to one male waiter there that was very informative and friendly (forgot to ask for his name 😞).
Reservation is probably necessary especially during weekend considering the place that's not too big. Won't guarantee seats w/o booking in advance 👋👋

We tried Bakmie Phak Cam Kee which is basically boiled chicken noodle. Located at Kelapa Gading area. Had some trouble looking for the place at first, but Google Maps was there to help us find the eye catching yellow cart 😊
𝐌𝐢𝐞 𝐀𝐲𝐚𝐦 𝐊𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐮𝐧𝐠 𝐏𝐨𝐫𝐬𝐢 𝐁𝐞𝐬𝐚𝐫 Since 👧 doesn't eat a lot , we decided to share 1 jumbo portion.
The noodle's consistency is thick and chewy as how mie karet should be. It is somehow similar to Mie Alok (Greenville) , Mie Asui (Tj Duren) , or Mie Abadi (Pluit). The noodle on its own has a very light taste that allows us to spice it up with our own preferences (Chili , soy sauce , pepper , scallions , etc)
As for the chicken topping , we can go for either paha (dark meat) or dada (white meat). We ordered white meat and surprisingly it was very tender and not dry at all!!! Moreover, they were pretty generous with their chicken 😍 You can even ask for extra chicken skin or order some chicken liver , gizzards , and "telur muda". In addition to all those things, their soup made of chicken broth is very aromatic 💥💥💥
Not to mention their bakso goreng (Fried Meatball) and bakso babi (Pork Meatball) to complete your breakfast! 🍲🍲🍲
For me this is the champion greek donuts in comparison to the other 2 big brands! Very crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside! Something perfect for your ASMR videos bcs the crunch is unbelievable ❤❤❤ The sauce melted and complimented the donuts very well! Most importantly, it is bite sized!

Quick stop for coffee while we were around the area. Was very curious about this "zero waste" themed cafe when they first opened , but only got a chance to visit rn 😥
☕🍱📸 - Escap(e) House Signature Shaken Cappucinno. Coffee isnt the strongest. Tasted a bit like iced cafe mocha (?) - Batavia Fried Rice Simple & tasty comfort food. Wasnt expecting much at first, but shockingly good 🤤
The place itself is surrounded by greens and objects are all made from waste/trash! Great concept and environmentally friendly. A new form of aesthetic they said. Bravo! 😊
