Cerita Kuliner Pempek-Pempek Aloy 45 @ Tomang - nuraisya blog

Hello again, this time we're going to a small place with great food not far from my home. Located at Tomang Utara not far from Alfa Midi. It called Pempek-Pempek Aloy 45, hadn't notice what's it called before often come here purely just to enjoy the food. Here they're selling pempek and es campur. Open daily at daytime and last only for a few hours or sooner depend on the stocks. Eventhough the place is quite small but always full of visitors. 

Enough with the chit chat, let me take you all to a small tour of what you can try and enjoy at Pempek Aloy.

Pempek Kapal Selam
IDR 15.000 / piece
Actually there are two kind of pempek here, Kapal Selam and Lenjer. But Lenjer already sold out right in front of my eyes to the previous customer. You can choose to served as it is or to be fried first. Eat them with the common brownish vinegar sauce for pempek or you can switch with two other kind of sauces provided, sweet sour sauce and tauco sauce which of course they all basically spicy.

Adaan / Baso Goreng
IDR 5.000 / piece
Fried fish ball, so moist and delicious especially when you eat them with the spicy sweet sour sauce. According to the owner it always freshly made from lot of limes. That's what made this sauce so special and tasty, my favorite among the other sauces. You can also choose between regular or hot spicy for this sauce.

Pempek Talas / Uyan
IDR 3.000 / piece
Despite the look this small pempek from taro as the basic ingredients also taste good, in fact they all tasty ^-^ If you like crispy pempek this should be the answer.

Pempek Kulit / Empiang
IDR 3.000
The most chewy from other types of pempek. My mom's favorite, cut into small pieces dip in the sweet sour sauce... Nomnomnom...

Es Campur Biasa
IDR 12.000
Add IDR 8.000 only to get Es Campur Special Duren. My thirst quencer during hot days, really yummy too. Traditional taste of shaved ice, red beans, mung beans, grass jelly, and fermented cassava poured with syrup, just like the old days... Oops. I always buy this each time I visit this stall. And this tasty dessert also end my review this time. See you later ^.^

Cerita Kuliner Publik Markette @ Grand Indonesia Mall - nuraisya blog

Hallo, it's been quite a while since the last resto review. Yes yes I've been laid back lately. But now I'm back with Publik Markette from Ismaya Group which located at Ground Floor East Mall of Grand Indonesia Mall passing through Central Department Store. The concept "Food Gallery" perhaps a little odd for me at first. Not like other restaurants the waiter will give you a menu to choose then wait for your orders. Here at Publik Markette, the waiter will give you only the drinks menu from D'Journal (did I hear cry of joy from coffee fans back there?). While waiting for the drinks to come you can grab your table number stick and bring it to the food counter where you can see and choose the food directly complete with the chef's explanation about them. After you choose wisely what to eat you can show your stick or just mention your table number to the chef, so the waiter can deliver your food as soon as they ready.

Publik Markette's Operational Hours
Smile there's cocktails :)
Waiting for my orders, which is quite fast
At a glance just like American diners
A bit clue for the place before going to the menu. I like the atmosphere here, it's a cool place to hangout for chat and a romantic place to date also. Moreover the friendly waiter who always standby around. And now let's eat ehm... head to the food tasting. There's no picture of a big feast with load of food on the table since I order then one at a time to maintain the freshness and avoid mix of tasting. Here they are...

Tomato Salami
IDR 45.000
Four slices pizza with salami and cheese on top, as tasty as it looks. Come in adequate portion to enjoy alone or together with your friends.

Mixed Pasta Bolognaise
IDR 55.000
This one is so good, penne pasta with bolognaise sauce and melted mozzarella cheese. Definitely my favorite, curious to try these menu on my kitchen someday.

Crushed Potatoes
IDR 25.000
And this is the most affordable price among the other menus, if you low on budget but want something tasty but still heavy for your meal then this is it.

Bitter Sweet Love
IDR 55.000
Dessert... After a moment of doubt I finally chose this dark chocolate based dessert. Just like the name it's a mix between bitter from dark chocolate yet still sweet enough to get your tongue to dance.

Tropical Sunrise
IDR 38.000
One of the healthy juices, the combination of greens, pineapple, cucumber, lemon and honeydew. I know it's hard to get rid of the strange feel and smell of greens in any drinks no matter what you do. So I guess this one is quite success since I still able to drink it with joy.

Mango Blush
IDR 45.000
From the Power Smoothies family we got Mango Blush, the combination of mango, passion fruit and bananas. This one is definitely good, you must try it yourself to prove my word.

*All the prices above are subject to service charge and government tax 21%

Overall I enjoy my visit here, but then again I always think if I'm going out of a restaurant with a full tummy and feeling happy then it's a good restaurant and encourage me to visit again some other time. Especially Publik Markette, from what I heard they prepare different menu from day to day. Feel free to come and try at anytime. Bye for now, until my next review ^.^

Cerita Kuliner OpenSnap: Panduan Praktis para Kuliner Mania - nuraisya blog

Mau makan dimana kita? Terserah... Pernah ga percakapan tadi terjadi dalam keseharian kita? Mungkin ini pertanyaan yang paling sering kita ucapkan baik secara sadar atau tidak. Untung sekarang sudah ada OpenSnap yang bisa dibuka kapan saja dan di mana saja di smartphone kita, atau bisa juga buka website-nya langsung. Dengan adanya OpenSnap sudah ga usah bingung lagi mau makan di mana, info yang disediain menurutku udah cukup lengkap. Semisal lagi main di Pondok Indah tinggal cari berdasar lokasi atau cari restoran terdekat ketika sudah sampai di sana lengkap dengan petanya, lagi ngidam es krim tinggal ke bagian dessert-ice cream, lagi begadang bingung cari resto yang masih buka buat ditongkrongin bisa ke bagian Open Till Late, dan masih segudang info dan testimoni para foodie tentang resto-resto ada di sini.  Akan lebih seru lagi kalau kita sudah coba pakai, bedah dan buktikan sendiri, karena kita bisa bookmark restoran sampai ke jenis makanan favorit kita loh. Terus bookmark tersebut mempengaruhi tingkat kepopuleran dari sebuah restoran, semakin banyak bookmark dari foodie pastinya semakin oke kan.

OpenSnap sendiri masih merupakan produk dari OpenRice, kalau yang sering menjelajah dunia maya untuk cari informasi seputar restoran pasti tidak asing dengan nama website yang satu ini. Jadi buat yang sudah pernah memiliki akun di OpenRice akan otomatis terangkut ke OpenSnap. Yang pasti fitur yang disediakan oleh OpenSnap lebih lengkap dan lebih interaktif dari pendahulunya.

Tampilan halaman utama website OpenSnap
Tampilan halaman di komputer berdasarkan pencarian restoran Publik Markette, ternyata cukup dekat di Grand Indonesia
Sedikit pengalaman neh waktu pertama pakai OpenSnap, kemarin itu ceritanya lagi penasaran mau coba Publik Markette. Langsung deh cari restoran yang dimaksud, ternyata sudah banyak foodie yang posting foto-foto selama makan di sana. Karena testimoni-nya banyak yang positif makin mantap untuk makan di sana. Untungnya sudah cek lokasi dulu sebelum berangkat jadi ga pake acara nyasar karena Grand Indonesia cukup luas. Begitu sampai langsung menuju East Mall GF, tiba tepat di jam makan jadi ga keburu lapar. Tempatnya enak buat nongkrong, makanan-nya juga enak jadi tidak salah testimoni dari para foodie di OpenSnap. Untuk review lengkap Publik Markette menyusul ya...

Kesampean juga makan di Publik Markette, lagi icip-icip Bitter Sweet Love dari barisan dessert
Pastanya juga enak dan porsinya pas
Nah, kalau yang ini tampilan di aplikasi Android (ki-ka):
search restoran Mr.Park yang menyajikan masakan Korea dalam porsi jumbo-jumbo itu,
klik Mr.Park (Pondok Indah) untuk ke halaman profil berisi alamat, lokasi, jenis makanan yang disajikan dan kisaran harga,
klik Photo untuk menampilkan koleksi-koleksi foto hasil jepretan para foodie yang sudah mampir ke Mr.Park
Kalau di foto sempat tergiur yang paket keluarga-nya setelah melihat ukuran langsung ternyata tidak mungkin sanggup dihabiskan berdua (benar-benar porsi jumbo). Akhirnya memilih paket lain yang tidak kalah menggiurkan.
Salah satu paket dari Mr.Park, dengan harga yang terjangkau bisa dapat porsi lengkap seperti ini benar-benar jaminan kenyang kalau makan di sini.
Tampilan halaman promosi terdekat
Untuk fitur-fitur OpenSnap lainnya silakan dicoba sendiri ya, karena tidak mungkin dibahas satu-persatu di sini. Lagipula lebih seru kalau coba sendiri kok. Ooo iya ada fitur menarik lainnya dari OpenSnap loh, kita bisa cek promosi yang sedang berlangsung di sekitar kita. Ayo para pemburu makanan gratisan dan diskonan, kurang seru apa coba pakai OpenSnap. Kamu bisa cek langsung website-nya di sini atau di sini untuk cek promosi terdekat atau bisa download langsung aplikasi-nya di Google PlayStore atau AppStore. Sampai jumpa di review berikutnya ^.^
