North Pole, PIK Jakarta

Went to this dessert place at Pantai Indah Kapuk several weeks ago. I’ve seen so much photo of their ice cream, especially the one served on a smoky pan. It does looks good in photo! So we went there right after lunch. It was around 2 pm or something and there were already several name on the waiting list. I was like : “What the fuck are they selling?!”

… We ended up waiting on the line, though.

The outlet is, to be honest, pretty small. They have this minimalist design with indoor and semi-outdoor area. I totally forgot to take a pic of it since it’s very packed up that day and I was not in the mood of taking photos. But here’s the thing. The indoor area has this comfy sofa with wooden furniture and cute catchy wallpaper as the background. There’s also this counter at the back side with gelato display which really caught my eyes. Then, there’s this semi-outdoor area which totally get an amaziiing natural lightning from the wide window. The place itself is dominated with wood, blue, and white color. I think it does represent the word “North Pole” pretty well.

It’s that time of the year again! I can’t believe December, my favorite month, is about to come to an end and that Christmas is just a few days away! I don’t know why, but there’s always something about Christmas that excites me. The Christmas tree, the tiny blinking lights, the sparkling decorations, the bells, the songs, well, basically everything about Christmas is just so heartwarming.

There’s also something about Christmas I have always been waiting for : THE CHRISTMAS DINNER! For you, people living in Bandung, you might wanna check this newly opened restaurant out for your Christmas Dinner. It’s Sonoma Resto!

Potato Wedges Booster Society

Booster Society, Bandung

I can’t believe there’s a new coffee shop near my boarding house which serves great coffee. Yes, you might have seen some of my photos in my Instagram, and yes again, it’s Booster Society, a newly opened (just around 3 months) coffee shop in Dago. The best thing is, beside the coffee and the food, it’s located just at the one side of the main street. From Mcd Simpang Dago, go straight to Dago Pakar and keep your eye on the right side of the street. Then most likely you will find Booster Society easily.

Elicxir Artisan Gelato

Quick question : “How much time does one usually need to make an ice cream?
Two hour? Three hour? Perhaps more.

But this technique will only take you about 5 minutes until you can enjoy your lovey dovey ice cream. No ice, no electric ice cream maker, no fridge, no waiting time. All you need is a tiny amount liquid nitrogen (yes, you heard me) and some other ingredients, and you’re ready to go.

The Cafe at The Mulia, Bali

You’ll never go hungry in Bali, that much is certain! There are a lot of foods offered from traditional Balinese foods just anywhere down the streets to an international fine dining at a hotel. This island of gods does has a huge range of choices from cafes, restaurant, street foods, bakeries, to local places to eat. That’s one of the reason I keep coming back to Bali. I just can’t refuse the foods and the hospitality it offers.

So anyway, we went to Cuca’s soft opening last night and had a chance to meet the two lovely owners, Kevin and Virginia during our visit.

Gusto Gelato & Caffè, Bali

“Gusto has the best gelato I have ever tasted!!”

“The best gelato you can find in Bali!”

“Best ice cream not only in Bali, it is world’s best!”

“It’s soo delicious I cant believe it. Better than in Italy.”

And the words go on and on…

***

Well.. That pretty much sums up what I got when I stumble across Gusto Gelato & Caffè reviews in both Trip Advisor and Foursquare. It was Sunday evening & the summer heat was terrible I can’t stand sitting down on the sea shore. So, I looked for a place which sells gelato, specifically, since I’ve never tasted one and would love to try. And it seems quite clear that people who go to Gusto Gelato & Caffè are satisfied and hooked by it.

Ninotchka Coffee Parlour & Diner

This is it! Ninotchka Coffee Parlour & Diner. A perfect hideaway for those looking to escape from the routine in the crowded city, Jakarta.

I’ve never heard about this place before, until my cousin tell me so. She was like : “Oh my God. Seriously? How could you not know about Ninotchka? It has been mentioned a lot in Twitter!”  And I was like : “Oh really? … Too bad I didn’t know anything about it. ”

Well, yeah, she’s right. I then searched the internet about Ninotchka. I found that this cafe is run by one of the famous Indonesian fashion blogger, Sonia Eryka. Okay, I should make another confession. I didn’t know anything about her either since I’m not into fashion blog. Baca lebih lanjut
