Was really into the hype of hipster indomie creations and was let down by this particular hyped up joint as well. Ordered the Indomie kornet saus telor asin and it was served cold while the consistency of the salted egg yolk was not seen while the kornet wasn't even dished appetizingly, come on, it's cornet for crying out loud. I find it odd W.U. is popular as it is, then again this might be the typical case of mismanagement as a result of rapid expansion.
The hype of this café has died down but I'm sure it's a landmark establishment to be celebrated. Their facade and decor was anything but dull, a white exterior with homey, bright vibes in the inside with wooden panels makes you feel right at home. A concept by the same group who came up with Sajiva, it's food is also top notch. Their braised salmon with sides are exquisite, given the affordable price tag and their mushroom avocado toast is at par with those of Melbourne cafés. On the flip side, their tiramisu wasn't that amusing and the seasalt frappe had a "unique" taste so I suggest you order other items than those.
Exquisite dining with a touch of art would describe this buffet restaurant the best. Signature dishes include their scallop, chili crab black bun and pecking duck. Aside from that, you can be assured that the selection (needs expansion/more variety) is all done perfectly with fresh ingredients and impeccable quality. The desserts weren't that impressive though, the cakes need improvement in terms of taste and presentation.
Place wise, above average, service wise, excellent, taste wise, average with a capital A. I understand that you can't expect much from a joint whose prices are mostly 25k, but every restaurant's main objective should be offering superior taste of its products, something I couldn't find in their Milo toast. Their green tea latte had a strong "sachet-an" impression but their Gayo coffee Affogato did impress me, bittersweet in all the right places. Food and drinks came out promptly, so keep up the good work and work on the weaknesses.
Comfort Chinese food with affordable price tag. There's no other place that serves Bakmie with lapchiong and a hearty serving of nasi goreng pete better than Shantung. Their kuotieh was also worth trying, though it's not as legendary as what others say it is. Do try the boiled kuotieh though, its soft skin is very addictive and soft on the lips and hips.
Love this space! Indo aesthetic vibes chiming through its rustic interior with shades of grey giving you that emo yet calming effect. Their hot chocolate was bomb as well, it wasn't sweet but was rich enough to put an emphasis on that note. Do order with their coffee cups as they come with Indo slangs too, perfectly Instagramable, especially when you sit in the artsy smoking area.
For all the Gading peeps out there, this is a new yum cha spot u should add to your bucket list. Their dimsum dishes fared quite well in my palate, as well as the other items jn their extensive menu. The only dish that needed improvement was the Har Gouw, as we could really taste the seasoning in it. Other than that, their Pork Belly was so divine, relish on the fats before it becomes yours!! The ondeh-ondeh were also chewy and nice but it lacked paste. Overall a good dining experience, especially since we ordered that much and all the dishes came out that quickly.
An up and coming coffee shop in Gading next to fat straw. Whenever you need a quaint atmosphere to chill, Heynature brings you back to a calm mood. Their affogato was enjoyable and the lighting of the place just sets your mood right. There's also a designated smoking area within the café and when empty it kinda looked like a mini greenhouse. Only problem was there was no water dispenser and so you needed to ask staff for water.
Cozy lil spot that is better visited during the hours leading to sunset as the glass exterior and the sleek black frames makes it an ideal hipster hangout place. Their cold brew has a nice aftertaste while their white iced was kind of plain as a whole, especially after adding foam the drink.
Quaint little patisserie tucked in a small Menteng street. Chicory offers a huge spread of bread in its boulangerie section and also some heavy bites if you're looking to recreate that Parisian bistro experience. Had their turkey bacon sandwich (forgot its fancy name) and it was so mouthwateringly good, you just couldn't stop eating the turkey bacon and the fresh leaves. Their lemon citron tart was finely creamy and just a little bit tangy, pair it with their cappuccino and you're ready to go. Their mini caneles were okay but not something I would try again.
