Hotti-kultura World Diners

Hotti-Kultura is a minimalist restaurant with outdoor area for smoking and indoor area with some pastel colored seats and modest appearance. Hearing the word " World Diners " surely pumped my enthusiastic. What was captivated my attention was their mini bar and a mini book shelves filled with some readable books. Looks like they also serves a quite variant of liquors. It gave a homey nuance as i sat and look around.

Welcome Gong Cha at Central Park

As a fan of bubble tea, I was very excited when i heard its finally opened their very first store at Jakarta, specifically located at Central Park face-to-face with Come Buy and just beside everyone's favorite Sushi Tei ( at least not for me ). Recalling my very first time had this drink at Singapore, and it was quite satisfying. So there i was, queued patiently and got my cup of Yoghurt Green Tea (23k ) and Black Milk Tea ( 18k ) including additional topping which cost 3k/topping.

Random Eats

What crossed your mind if i say Carefour? a huge one-stop grocery store? yes, with an additional food stores at the inner part of Central Park's ( and any others ) Carefours. i ordered the very standard fried rice, Egg fried rice without chicken which cost 10k/plate. I wasn't hoping much,even just a speck of it. But,it turned out it was quite good for a mere 10k. Well-seasoned and quite savory. No chicken, but lack of those biting sensations.

Downtown Bistro

A few days ago, i went to one of the newest establishments ( is it ? ) at Central Jakarta which is specifically located at Landmark Building, Sudirman. I was intrigued after hearing several good talks from friends who preceded me. Unfortunately, by the time i was there with one of my friend, their indoor area was unavailable due to the some colloquium, talkshow, whatever you name it. Inevitably, we sat outside. Hoping they all would moved immediately. Poor us, they didn't moved even just a little bit.

Convivium Cafe Deli

Strategically located at Panglima Polim there lies an authentic Italian deli with homey concept and atmosphere strengthened by its warm lighting to lighten up those gloomy hearts. Stand under the name Convivium which means a banquet , dining-party , entertainment in Latin. In a nutshell, Convivium is a place for eat & drink , it's a place for gathering and having good times. It's an ordinary house which decorated extraordinarily, upon the entering, i saw well-furnished with wooden touches including their wooden shelves and wood panelling around the place, while the floors covered with cheerful wallpapers. For some peoples it's the type of place which binds you and make you want to come here again & again , but i don't know if it's apply to me. We'll see.

NEGEV : Art Dining & Gallery Bar

Dear NEGEV , I'm really sorry that i doubt about their good babbling about you . 
Yes , yes , yes . I mean it, NEGEV The only reason why i paid it a visit in this late century since it stood because the hesitation to try . Some of them said their food was sucks . Some of them said it was worth visiting . Located at City Plaza Building , no wonder if their luncheons are mostly filled with business peoples during Weekdays. Today is Wedne(shit)day, after a had an hour full of bewilderment faced the France exam. I found myself sitting beautifully in a beautiful place with polite , well-trained waiter and waitresses . No wonder they won over Jakartans hearts , they really turned this place out into a good art dining eatery .

Fell in love with its location that you can see an appealing wooden touches everywhere from in front of Monolog and others neighboring restaurants . Ambiance-wise , Matching and synch colors in harmony . Monolog has its own magnet to make ( at least ) for me to come over again and again .

Standing gallantly fueled by two upright white pretty pillars on the corner of Jalan Senopati and the road that takes you to SCBD , pad@28 which i believe stand for padkeeper28 adding itself as an another alternative place to rejuvenates yourself after faced a week of hectic bustle , i found this restaurant is a really good one . Their strong and bold outward appearance strengthened by their balmy , cozy , and engrossed interiors inside that i'm sure will make you extend your stay longer . I believe this place just about to make hits and splashes for active Jakartans who loves to hunts good places for shutting down a little while , having quality times with their fellas or just plain to enjoy good foods in a good place.

Ninotchka is one most popular venue in West Jakarta , which is exactly located at Citra Garden 6 . Sonia Eryka a blogger , an artist ( maybe ) and more , promoted Ninotchka several times in her blog and so on ( heard this from one of my friends ) .
From whoever Ninotchka got its popularity it doesn't matter . As a dessert parlour , Ninotchka serves several kinds of yummy desserts with an  environmentally friendly prices but i do think the portions are kinda bit small . Been here several times , this place seems crowded by students and teenagers. Well , with those affordable prices , cute and simple concept that inviting you to come in , and with those tempting desserts . what are reasons for you not to come here?
