Kimberly Green Sausage Pasta

It's such a pleasure having lunch at Nanny's Pavillon restaurant because I've always loved their pastas and pancakes. Yum! This time I'm going to give you a review of my chosen menu of lunch that day. Proudly present you guys...


If you're a big fan of basil and pesto. This is a food worth tasting, I love how it's not creamy and not greasy and those sausage are cooked perfectly and they smell so nice :).
Tom's Caramel Banana Chocolate is such a sweet treat! You'll have glimpse of caramel, chocolate sauce and one scoop of vanilla ice cream to even make it more and more adorable! LOVE IT!

The Best of SUSHI TEI!

Technically, I don't think this restaurant need anymore introduction. When everyone hear 'SUSHI TEI', I'm sure in their mind's probably saying something like 'that's the best SUSHI restaurant I've ever been in Indonesia or maybe in the world', and fortunately I HAVE TO AGREE.

Sushi Tei's actually a branch and franchise from its original restaurant in Singapore, its first restaurant was opened around 1994 and in Indonesia it's first introduced in 2003 and until 2012 it has personally been the best sushi and japanese restaurant I've ever been. This entry is not for me to review the food because I think you guys have tasted most of them before and therefore I'm going to make a compilation out of it! This is my personal choice of THE BEST MENUS OF SUSHI TEI.

The food that I'm going to review and mention below is the food that I always order everytime I go to Sushi Tei, but to be frank, these menus are not always this way, there are times when I order other menus, different variant and even more than this, but this is just my personal favorite and what I MOSTLY order. They have this sense of attraction that never bore me and always make me crave and crave for more dining experience. Wondering what they are? Here are my top choices!

Photos are all taken by me and they're taken during my last visit at Central Park store, last Friday.

Oh My Gosh, this is probably the best seaweed I've ever tasted because you can feel how fresh and natural tasting it is, the only problem that I'm having is the portion. I wish it's actually larger because we barely can't stand not craving for more.

CUKAIDAKO (Baby Octopus)
Don't judge its look from its cover, I once asked my mom to have a bite of this dish but my mom tend to look at the appearance (she said it looks creepy), but I force her to have a bite and she finally agree! In the end it's her that crave for another portion. They're so GOOD!

I love how everytime I eat this, I can feel how yummy the meat is, the broth from the meat and how perfectly cooked the skin is.

Another choice of appetizer you can have is CAWANMUSHI (egg custard in a glass/bowl), but for me it's personally a little to heavy for appetizer, I can get a little full.

Whoopsssss this has always been my personal favorite ever since my first visit to Sushi Tei back when I was in high school (6 years ago). I have always loved anything with salmon (rare of perfectly cooked) so I gave it a try and 6 years later, still is my champion menu and on for years to come.

This is obviously a must try whenever you visit SUSHI TEI. This is obviously the recommended menu, I love the eel, the tempura and actually...everything.

Other preferable options:
- Kani Mayo Roll

Nothing for me can beat the classic Ice Ocha. Not because they're free but they neutralize everything, so that you won't feel like having too much and get your sense of full rested for a while :)

Another favorite choice of mine is this STRAWBERRY SPARKLING MOJITO

I was lucky enough to get the promo, I didn't notice any promotion happening that time and still ON! For every purchase of IDR 250.000, you will get a free complimentary of KANI MAKI. This is also good!
Thank you SUSHI TEI for always giving me a great dining experience.

What's a day without a delicious home mad treats? I was craving for chocolate and I suddenly remembered that I have some Hershey's chocolates left from my latest Singapore trip. As what you see on the picture above is one of my sweet experiment. I don't take anything from the internet (recipes), as this is called an experiment, it might end up as a sweet treat or end up as a chaos :(.

I don't recommend this for anyone who doesn't like sweet stuffs as this is dangerously sweet and might be dangerously fattening, but that's probably the least of my care (weight) so I'm going to HAVE SOME SWEET MOMENTS to remember the sweet moments.

If you're wondering about the ingredients used for this experiment, here they are:
- a half of the whole bar of the Hershey's Harmony chocolate bar (192gr)
- 5 pcs of the Hershey Kisses milk chocolate
- 2 pcs of Hershey Kisses chocolate almond
- marshmallow (plain)
- one sachet of Cadbury hot chocolate drink

The most used and general mixture for this experiment is actually the chocolate garnish and dip, so let's start with it first.

- put the bars of the Hershey's Harmony chocolate bar, 3 pcs of Hershey Kisses milk chocolate and 1 pcs of Hershey Kisses chocolate almond into a bowl, or it could be anything that's microvable and heat-resistant.
put on the microwave for about 8-10 minutes in maximum heat.

Let's move on to the "Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows"
Level: easy
Approximate time of making: 8 minutes

The longest time taken for creating this actually waiting for the chocolate garnish on top of the marshmallows to melt, while you're preparing for this drink.
I'd like to mix the hot chocolate with the rest of the Hershey Kisses chocolates so that I'd have a fun chocolate taste. After you pour the boiling water to the glass, don't forget to stir, so that the Hershey Kisses could melt, and finally put four marshmallows to the hot chocolate drink and garnish it with nice and hot melted chocolate. This drink is totally my newest love.

I love when the marshmallows kinda melt and you can have some foamy texture and original vanilla taste from the marshmallow. Variant!

Baked Marshmallows with Chocolate Dip
Another fun experiment, this time I'm wondering what it's like to have marshmallow baked in the same time with the melted chocolate. I thought I was going to burn the marshmallows with the fire, but I thought isn't it hideous to burn something that came from the gas, I don't think it's healthy enough and you'll get those gas tasted marshmallow instead.

I kinda thought that the marshmallow's going to melt away, but I end up got a little happy surprise.

Look at how prettily baked the marshmallows are...wait until I try to dig the inside.
 I love how it looks and tasted, at first when you put your spoon on the surface, it's absolutely crispy, but soon you'll have this foamy texture and cloud like appearance. I'm in love.

That's for my home made treats of EATandTREATS. Incase you're wondering why is the first picture is written 'part 2' on it, well if you follow my instagram, you'll know that I posted a picture of Starbucks Hot Chocolate with marshmallows.

Sorry for hibernating in post, if you follow my Twitter and Facebook, you'll probably know that I've bene fighting with one of the most annoying times in everyone's university life. MID-TERM EXAM. I had sleepless days, some only got a few hours of sleep and in result, glimpse of tiredness. My exam finished on last Thursday and I already had myself a payback time of sleep yesterday, 15 hours of a wonderful sleep. Now I'm fully charged.

Don't worry, be happy!
It's FRIDAY and it's time for another series of DESSERT OF THE WEEK!
Wondering who'll be DOTW winner? clue... if you are a reader of my blog, it comes from the same place, but of course different menu!

got it?


hahaha... I'm such a tease, here it goes!
Frankly speaking, I'm not a huge fan of any kind of cheese cake, it's just that I can't stand the smell and the super milky taste of this, but ever since I tried this gorgeous cheese cake, my perception changes and I need to update my interest, finally there's a cheese cake that's not ultra-cheesy, very well moisted texture and a great balance in sweetness.

You can call me overrated but I do feel a little nervous when I'm about to have a bite of it, I said to myself, well you've ordered it, take a chance...and I did, in a very satisfying way :).

The presentation itself is also cute and pretty. Love it.

You have to have a bite guys! This cheesecake and a cup of a hot jasmine tea or the classic english breakfast is an awesome mate to be.
