Mionette Cake and Dining – Lippo Mall Puri, West Jakarta

A cozy minimalistic place with wooden furniture, great ambiance and the bright atmosphere are what I got when I was just dining in here.

Mionette is located in Ground level, Lippo Mall Puri. You can reach it by going outside from Pull and Bear Lobby and turn left.

We ordered Barramundi Sambal Matah (88k), Truffle Beef Stroganoff Linguine (70k), Steak and Egg (85k), Potato Skin Bruschetta (45k). It was not long before they arrive. We also ordered a cup of white peony tea from Jing Tea and 2 iced black tea.


Barramundi sambal matah came with salad and brown butter rice. The barramundi was well cooked but the Balinese sambal matah was a bit sour for my palate, maybe you should tell the waiters to reduce the amount of lime used. The brown rice was really good. The champion is the salad. I am not a vegetable person, but i could eat everything on the plate.


The truffle Beef Stroganoff Linguine came with a big portion, but according to my friend, it’s a bit bland and too creamy although the big chunks of beef would definitely make it up for it.


The Steak and egg, 150gr. the sliced medium cooked steak came on top of sourdough bread, with a poached egg and salad. A great plating, very pretty.
The beef was quite good and everything else is okay. Nothing really makes us want to order it more


Potato Skin Bruschetta was the champion of the day (3pcs/portion). Tasty flavourful potato skin along with the generous amount egg mayo and smoked beef made my day. I could literally swallow down all three alone.


They also part of Common Ground groups which has a good rep. I will go back again to taste more of their cakes and teas. This is definitely a great place for high tea time.

Waroeng Mama Ong – Simprug Gallery, Blok M, South Jakarta

I’ve planned to go to this place for two months already. Initially, I was going to go here with only my bff but along the way, there are two more good friends of mine that we invited along to savor the goodness of humble food. This place is called Waroeng Mama Ong. It was located at Simprug Gallery, South Jakarta. It was not the easiest place to find, but luckily, we managed to see the black signboard at the front of Simprug Gallery. The place was only at the right-hand side from the entrance to this gallery.   Continue reading “Waroeng Mama Ong – Simprug Gallery, Blok M, South Jakarta”

Uncle Tjhin Bistro – PIK, North Jakarta

Last Saturday, I didn’t have anywhere to go then I stumbled upon a restaurant in PIK that’s called Uncle Tjhin. From the name itself, I got the vintage vibe and in my mind, it’s a family restaurant and it will be boring. Along with my BFF, I went here that Saturday. The minute we got into the place, my opinions and thoughts were shattered. Continue reading “Uncle Tjhin Bistro – PIK, North Jakarta”

Coffee Aya-Muara Karang, North Jakarta

To be honest, although I have been living in Muara Karang, I don’t know that this new place exists, seriously. I just happened to pass in front of it after my meal in Pasar Muara Karang at lunch time. Seriously, they need to make the signage of the coffee shop bigger!! I mean who would see that small black signage in front of the dark grayish background. It’s only written “aya” with a tree as a logo. Personally, I was so in love with the design. Simple and artistic.  Continue reading “Coffee Aya-Muara Karang, North Jakarta”

I searched on the internet a decent place to eat our lunch and one place got my attention. Honestly, I had never heard of this place before. It’s Fika Public Eatery in Sunter, North Jakarta.
