Good news everyone! Tiger Sugar is opening SOON in Mal Kelapa Gading 2, by the time this post is written, it's exactly ONE WEEK AWAY from the scheduled opening!
The brown sugar milk drink is by far THE MOST happening F&B trend this year, more and more foreign brands are opening (and I heard more, soon) and to be frank, I am excited HAHA!
I am a firm believer that most health problems are related to our digestive system, this is stemmed from two years ago when I had the worst case of gastric pain, I literally took all the blood test that a lab could possibly handle, cost me millions, all that to know that my gastric acid was in a pretty terrible state that I need to stop consuming certain food, work out (and work less so that I'm not stressed out), and from that I believe that our digestive system and gastric are almost like the door to what you're feeling about your body, if you don't treat them well they can fight you back, but if you take very good care they will help you get through the day, or even your life.

One of the most happening food trend at the very moment is Japanese pancakes, more and more brands start bringing this menu into their line-up and one of them is Pan & Co, a new cafe specializes in serving Japanese fluffy pancakes and they just recently opened in Mal Kelapa Gading! This happens to be their very first outlet and in case you wonder from the branding and such, this is a local brand, but they do get inspired by Japanese design and implemented that on their concept, branding and food!

If you love the color yellow then you might love this place, it POPS, bright, fun and just in time when the crowd gets packed, the vibe just feels even more enhances. Pan & Co is located at Mal Kelapa Gading 2 next to EZO Cheesecake, you can make the entrance via mall or the connecting path from the parking building.
The queue was pretty long at the time of my visit (around 1 PM) and there were about 5 queues ahead of me, such a usual phenomenon when it comes to new and hip places opening in town! As I told you earlier, Pan & Co emphasizes their Japanese fluffy pancakes as the main star, but they also have various non pancake menus like toasts, light bites, salads and bento, all that with decent line up of curated drinks! I am fully aware that the pancakes will take some time to make, but I notice not everyone are well prepared for that (or care), but yes, it will take at least 15-20 minutes to cook your pancakes because that's just how it goes, it needs more patience and requires more attention to cook this kind of pancake!

Enough yakking, let's just dive into what they have in store!!!
Ginza Galaxy - IDR 35k
This is simply MUST TRY! Not only that it comes in this gorgeous presentation and color, but taste wise, this is also very good and refreshing! Passionfruit base with blue pea tea soda, lemon and strawberries!
French Fries Takoyaki Style - IDR 32k
The light bite that you can munch on while waiting for your pancakes to be done, simple but pleasant: moist shoestring fries (not the super dry and crunchy type) topped with mayonnaise, bonito flakes, nori and served with this tasty takoyaki sauce, the takoyaki sauce has this hint of spicy that I found enjoyable!
Strawberry Miss You - IDR 59k
Two pieces of Japanese fluffy pancakes with homemade honey whipped cream, fresh strawberries, strawberry jam and ice cream on the side! The moment I knew I love their pancakes was when I realized their pancakes were FRESH without this overpowering eggy/fishy smell! Texture wise, indeed super fluffy but still pretty much cake-like texture, the pancakes are also not sweet (if not, perfect sweetness) so that when you have them together with the toppings, everything feels balance! The strawberry jam is made fresh and it's refreshing, I don't know if they imported the strawberries, but they were also fresh, overall almost like this strawberry compote!
Chizu Boba - IDR 59k
When Japanese pancake meets boba! I found the texture of the pancake the same (I understand they come from the same kitchen but keep reading) and this one's actually very simple: pancakes with cream cheese topping and chewy boba (black pearls), and oh, served with vanilla ice cream too, but really I barely touched the ice cream, I even forgot it's there and I can live without it. The cream cheese has got to be the highlight for me as I love the mix of sweet and salty flavor without being overly cheesy in the same time! The bobas are moist and chewy, very enjoyable!

If you ask me, I still prefer the Strawberry Miss You way better!
Teriyaki Chicken and Egg - IDR 65k
The reason why I said the texture of the pancake might be different is because they are! For savory menus, the wheat pancakes are used, hence the drier texture, more cakey, but still pretty much moist! I think the fact that the pancake is drier & more airy is the reason why I love this dish, because when you have it together with the savories, they match better! Anyway it's just my opinion, but since the toppings are already quite fulfilling, I found one pancake should do better for me, but when they give you two instead of one maybe it's just best to be grateful LOL!
Pancake with egg, teriyaki chicken, sauteed mushroom and salad, my problem with this is probably the lack of sauce...and the egg! I expected the fluffy saltier egg but it was plain, the teriyaki chicken is seasoned very well tho, the sauteed mushroom didn't do much, oh, I think sausage would do very well with the pancake!
Texture close up!

At the very moment, Pan & Co's pancakes are legit, the best one in town, it's close to the Japan's very own Happy Pancake (only I found Happy Pancake's more golden in terms of color). I hope they keep up with the quality!

Japanese cuisine will always have a special place in my heart, and just for so many reasons, but out of the many, one has got to be how the best things are best enjoyed raw and sometimes they're so raw and fresh they just speak for themselves! Out of the many Japanese restaurants opening in Jakarta, one of my top favorites at the moment has got to be Sushi Matsu, they recently opened their second outlet, following the elder, existing and successful first outlet in Menteng!

If you ask me to name one of my favorite Indonesian restaurants in Jakarta, easily Warung MJS is the one I have in mind among others, and unconsciously my mind particularly directed itself to their Ayam Setan, super spicy yet so good! Incase you haven't read my review of Warung MJS, it's HERE.
This has got to be one of the MOST happening drinks at the very moment! Ever since I posted this on my Instagram I have been getting at least 40-50 tags every single day *brb making invoice for Kopi Soe* - they need to start cutting me A CHECK, lol just kidding!

I have been raving about this shabu-shabu restaurant A LOT and I guess it's no longer a secret that you guys know how much I LOVE Momo Paradise! Point of this blog post is to let you guys know that MOMO PARADISE is now expanding to the Central and now in PLAZA INDONESIA YAAAAY finally the closest to where I live.
What? The header picture is teasing your appetite? LOL keep reading to know where this is, but if you are a follower of my Instagram I believe you should know where since I've posted this one!
This post is supposed to be the throwback to my wonderful Autumn trip to Japan and that time I explored the Aichi prefecture, which I highly believe will soon be one of Japan's hottest travel destinations. I don't even know how to choose the proper words to explain how beautiful Aichi is, or maybe that's the word... beautiful! Japan is naturally such a gifted country, and nobody can deny that, aside from the four seasons, the versatile charm, travelling to Japan is always addicting because no matter how many times or where I go around Japan, I feel like there are still so many things to unfold, it's almost like you can't even measure how deep you know Japan, but in the same time I don't need to, I just know that Japan is my happy place and I am always happy to be back!!! Just in time that I was there during my favorite season of the year: AUTUMN, the scenery was even more beautiful and the weather was just perfect!

I love Korean food, that's just the drill, said it before, saying it now and will probably keep on repeating, and I have few recommendations that I can share to you (currently researching for the best Korean restaurants in Jakarta according to me) but this time in this entry I am going to be talking about this restaurant that has been around for quite a while now, and now come with this new ALL YOU CAN EAT concept that I believe, the idea many of you are fond of! Say hello to MAGAL PREMIUM in Senayan City!
First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR! As I am typing this post, I still can't believe that we are in 2019 and on the second week of the first month.

I will share more stories on the upcoming blog posts, but in this entry I am going to be sharing you guys my experience visiting the newly opened Plataran Canggu!
