About a week ago, I was given an opportunity to visit one of the most well known restaurant at Puncak, called Cimory RiverSide. Actually, Cimory River Side is their new branch after the first restaurant which is called Cimory Mountain View. As you can read on the name above, you may know that the concept of their resto is based on the themes and situations on there, if you go to Cimory Mountain View, the scenery that you will see is a few of Big mountain that located not too far from Cimory, and if you go to Cimory River Side, what you will see is the scenery of a long river which is very beautiful and enchanting.
The purpose I went to Cimory on that Monday was for attending Chocomory Food blogger event which is presented by Chocomory itself and also Yukmakan.com. So I would like to explain a lil bit about Chocomory. Chocomory is the first local Belgian Chocolate Shop in Indonesia that made and founded by Mr. Axel Sutantio as one of the director in Cimory. And Chocomory was inaugurated on 3rd December 2012 last year. The Tagline for the Chocomory itself is “Where Happiness Comes Alive”. As what they said in their tagline, their vision and missions of this company is to bring such a joyful and interesting experience for those who going to Chocomory. They also have a open factory concept, so people can take a look on how they make their chocolate. And I think this is a good concept because all the consumers could have an opportunity to take a look and see by themselves how Chocomory keep their freshness for their products by a good working flow in the factory.
So, once I got there with the others food blogger, we were served by their kindness to had a lunch. We need to choose 1 of their 4 recommended menus in Cimory River Side, which are Ring Kanzler Sausage, Spiral Kanzler Sausage, Chicken Cordon Bleu, dan Nasi Goreng Chicken BBQ (Fried Rice Chicken BBQ). We need to choose one of those foods and I personally choose Chicken Cordon Bleu which is very delicious and well cooked. When you sliced the chicken, you could see how tempting the hams, chicken and also the melted cheese are blended together with other ingredients.
After we had a lunch, we watched Mr. Axel's presentation about Chocomory. One thing that amaze me is, as one of the directors in Cimory and the owner of Chocomory, Mr. Axel must be a very busy person and also have a tight schedule, but he actually spare his time to be spent with us and gave us an useful experience. From the first time we come until the events done, he was there accompanying us and by his humble personality he always answered our questions. The presentations also went so well. At first, He introduced us to know more about Chocomory itself from how it builds, the meaning of Chocomory, their visions and many more. And he also told us about Chocomory variant product. There are so many variant of chocolate that Chocomory sells, such as Chocolate Cover, Chocolate Bar, Rochers, Lollypop, and other unique products. As example, for Chocolate Cover also divided by many variant of flavor such as Almond Crunchies, Chocoreo, Cookies Coins, Waferfingers, Mocha Crunch and Cornflakes. My favorite is Almond Crunchies and Chocoreo. And for Chocolate Bar type, it also divided by many variant of flavor such as White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate and Milk Chocolate.
After we get introduced by their variant of products, Mr. Axel told us 3 critical things that you need to know about chocolate. Those 3 things are ; Water, Temperatures, and also Aroma. Those things means that when you make your own chocolates, those 3 things needs to be concern if you want to get a delicious and fresh chocolate. The water content must be consider in the making of the chocolate, The temperatures must be right and also those chocolate must be avoided from bad smells that maybe lingering on the room.
After we listened to Mr. Axel’s presentation, We were invited to come to their factory and take a look of their factory and how they make their chocolate and keep it fresh as always. We were not just get to take a look on the factory but we were also get a chance to make our own chocolate. We were taught by one of their Chocolatier in how to make a delicious chocolate, and we get freely to choose the toppings to fill the chocolate inside. And the other good news is, the chocolate that we have done there, we also can take it home. In my own chocolate creation, I made 3 chocolate and filled with some toppings inside which are almond nuts, oreo and hazelnuts. It was so fun and all the crew or chocolatier in there were very kind, they helped us to make a good chocolate for our self. And also we learnt that a good chocolate is a chocolate that can easily melt when we took it to our mouth, and all of Chocomory chocolate are really melted effortlessly when you take it to your mouth. So Yummy!
So.. The time is up, and it was the time that we need to go home. Before we were going home, Chocomory gave us super yummy goody bag which is contain by so many delicious things from Cimory, like Cimory milk, Soya milk and the other kinds of Cimory’s Milk and Yoghurt. And before we were going home, they also gave us a chance to tasted their signature and recommended drink which is called Blueberry Yoghurt Shake.
Ok, that’s all that I got from there, not just a very delicious goody bag that we could take it home, but in the other way, I personally said that its such an interesting and exciting experience that I got from there, I learnt so many things in there and heard so many things that I don’t know but now I become to know more about chocolate. Thank Chocomory to giving us such a memorable yet exciting experience. Cheers! xCHOCOMORY

For today review, i will write about pasta (again).. hehe, but for this time, maybe most of you already come to this place and try their menus because this resto is one of the well known restaurant in Jakarta that located in the center heart of Jakarta, Grand Indonesia Shopping Town. Yep! Its Pasta De Waraku.
Actually, its not my first time to come here because i already tried their foods for many times before. But, let my give some of my words to you guys about this place and their food. For the place, as you know that Pasta De Waraku is one of many restaurant that founded and builded by one of biggest culinary company in Indonesia, Ismaya. Ismaya is well known as a creative culinary conceptor and builder that everything that they build always become hype. So like of the most Ismaya dining concept, Pasta De Waraku have the great ambience and venue with really nice decoration which is very comfortable.
And for the food, the last time i went to Pasta De Waraku i order Chicken and Mushroom with wafu sauce. Honestly i would like to say that the taste is not like what i was expected. sorry to say but, in my opinion its just so average. But, i like the texture of the pasta which is chewy and soft. so i would rate this place and their menu for 3.5 of 5.
Not only pasta, you can try many different kinds of menus there such as soup pasta, wafu fried rice, wafu pizza, and one of their popular dessert Hanito.
Thanks and i hope you enjoyed my review.

As you can read on their name, its obviously that its a place which is serving many kinds of dessert, and its also very delicious.
For the place, its quite nice because its decorated so well and also comfortable place to chill out with friends or have a quality time with your beloved one. When i went to this place, i was tasting their 2 menus of dessert. the first one is their popular dessert menu which is i really recommended to order when you get there, DC Choco Lava Cake. Its served with vanilla ice cream and its really yummy. when you sliced the choco lava with your spoons, the chocolate will be melted from inside and its really good. Because i'm also a chocolate lovers so i really recommended this menu if you have a chance to come to this place.
The second menu that i've tried before is their delicious Pannacotta. The taste was quite good enough, because i like the texture of the pannacotta which is very soft and i like the tasted when it was blended by the strawberry jams. For you who craving for a good pannacotta, this is a right place to come.
For your information too, this place not only serving sweets dessert. Dessert Company also served other dessert like French Fries, Calamari, Chicken Pop, and the other menus that still on dessert area. So when you have no place to chill out with your friends and craving for some dessert, its a right place to come and tasting their delicious dessert menus on there.

Review Carnivor The Meat Company Sunter
Today I wanna share new review about Carnivor The Meat Company that located in Sunter, Jakarta Utara. Actually, Carnivor The Meat Company have about two branchs that located in Sunter, Pantai Indah Kapuk. The ambience on Carnivor is quite nice, I can’t deny that they successfully decorated their restaurant so well. Carnivor served many kinds of foods and beverages that refers to Western and Italian foods. And Carnivor is a great place for those who wanna have a special occasion on there like birthday party, meetings and others.
Its my second time to have dinner on there, and let me write some reviews of their foods for you guys. When the first time I went there, me and my friends ordered their Pizza. But I forgot the name of the pizza that I ordered, it served with bacon and egg and it was taste quite good. And the second time I went there, I ordered their pasta which is very good and I really recommended it. The pasta that I ordered named Pesto Cream Pasta with Grilled Chicken. You can see on the picture that I showed you guys, the texture of the pasta its really good and chewy. What I like the most is the pesto seasoning. I don’t know how to describe but it tasted really good and delicious. And for the grilled chicken, its really comfortable to eat (not too hard to chew) and tasted so good. So I really recommended this pasta for those pasta and pesto seasoning lovers. Hihi
Ok, that’s it.. I hope you guys enjoyed my reviews thanks :)

For about few days ago I went to Bandung with some of my closed friends. We decided to have one night in Summer Hills Hotel which is located in Lembang, and its quite near from Maja House where I had my dinner on there with my friends. So yap, let me write a review for you all about this well known restaurant in Lembang, Bandung.
Its not my first time went to Maja House, it’s actually my second times to had a dinner in there. Maja House have a great sight view. They have two kinds concepts of seating which are indoor and outdoor, and for me it’s really recommended for you to have a seat on the outdoor to get a beautiful view, and I suggested to you guys to come for a dinner (on night) so you can see the beautiful sight of Bandung on the night view. But, unfortunately I don’t recommended if you guys come with big amount of friends (about 5person or more) to be seated outdoor, because the place and the seat on outdoor quite narrow and uncomfortable to be seated by few people more than 5 person.
Maja House have a variety range of foods, and over all it’s refers to Western and Italian foods. For the price, its not quite pricey, still make sense and affordable. But FOR YOUR INFORMATION (this is really an important information you needs to know when you choose to have dinner there) for FRIDAY and SATURDAY, if you want to be seated outdoor you need to order until you achieve the minimal amount of order which is 100.000 rupiahs for one person… In my opinion, most of the people who wants to be seated outdoor, its only want just chill out with their friends, spent few hours to only chit-chat with friends and maybe just order a few drinks and snacks and unfortunately maybe it’s not achieve the minimal amount of 100.000 rupiahs per person, but yeah its all depends on the people of course. If you really have a heavy dinner and also orders snacks and drinks or maybe wine its surely achieve their minimal amount of order for every person. But in my opinion, its quite uncomfortable rules for the customers (and it was what I feel when I need to choose and order their menus and also calculate if it’s already achieve their minimal amount or not).
Me and my friends had a quite uncomfortable experience on there because of their regulation of minimal amount order. Because the waiters told us wrong, that its all the same whether you choose indoor or outdoor, you need to achieve the minimal amount regulation per person. But actually, it was wrong because when we asked the cashier when we went to pay he told us that you only need to do their regulation if you only SEATED OUTDOOR. And one friends of mine told the manager that the waiters told us a wrong regulation and it’s also harmed us, so the manager decide to give us discount. The manager quite wise when he handle this crisis situations (in my opinion as a Public Relations Student). So yah no hard feelings and it was handle quite good by their management.
Hahaha, sorry for my long and bored story about my experience on there, so lets get on the food review hehe. For the foods and beverages, its quite good and yummy. I ordered Fettucini Carbonara (something) and Creamy Soup (I forgot both name for the food, sorry!) and for the drink I ordered Apple Mojito. The Fettucini itself is quite good and creamy which is I really like it and the soup is also delicious and creamy (again). Maja House have a great taste of platting, you can see on the photos that I uploaded below. And I save the best for the last, Apple Mojito. I like this drink much. Its really refreshing and also sweet. Its served by pieces of apple and its really good in my opinion, I recommended this kind of beverages. And for the services, yaa quite disappointed because of those experience that you guys can read it on my blog here. But still no hard feelings because over all I like the foods and also the sight so yeah I rated 3.5 of 5 for this resto.
Sorry for a quite long and bored review, Thanks for reading and wait for my other reviews :)
