AMKC Atelier Es Teler Cake~!

One of the most happening local restaurant recently, which is owned by pair of husband and wife, Adhika Maxi and Karen Carlotta. And this is not their first success restaurant, they also owned and managed Union in Senayan area, which previously super famous for their red velvet cake.
Adhika Maxi, cooked at celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey restaurant in New York before, while his wife is super good at baking cake, which lead her to invent Red Velvet cake at Union, then Es Teler Cake, which is one of the "it" item and "must eat" item in Jakarta right now.
I happened to try out various menu in this restaurant by several times visit with different friends. I ate quite a few of their menu and found that every menu has their own uniqueness and I must say that out of the menus I ate, I haven't found anything which is not into my style. LOLZ!
I tried Aglio Olio on my first visit, but didn't remember to take the photo because I was too hungry and too devastated in tryi…

Gyeongju Travel (2) : Bulguksa Temple, Seokguram, Crab Tofu Soup

If you wish to visit Bulguksa Temple during your stay in Gyeongju, then make sure you plan to go to Seokguram on the same day as well. Reason is, the only way to go to Seokguram is by using a shuttle bus (of course it's not free and quite costly) from the Bulguksa Temple's main gate. There's a certain time schedule, so make sure you check on the bus leaving and arrival time so you can plan your time well.

Since I'm hurrying for the earlier bus time, I arrived at Bulguksa Temple slightly before lunch time and had a simple lunch around the Temple. I had Ddeok Galbi (Korean Style Hamburg Steak?) at a restaurant located right across the temple.

Then you'll get to walk through some flower fields before you arrive at the ticketing gate of Bulguksa Temple.

Bulguksa temple was originally built in 528 during Silla dynasty, and has been rebuilt for several times after that. The original name of this temple is Beopryusa Temple, and it's not until 774 that its name is bein…

Gyeongju Travel (1) : Anapji & Kyochon Village

I went to visit Gyeongju for traveling by the end of last month. I've always wanted to visit Gyeongju since this place still has lots of ancient treasure which is being left behind by the Silla Dynasty. I reached this place around 2 or 3 in the afternoon, so before going to the tourist attraction places, I went to the nearest downtown to see what kind of downtown do Gyeongju has!
I intentionally didn't eat any lunch so that we can try out Gyeongju's specials but I regretted my decision as soon as my stomach feel hungry. Gyeongju is definitely not a place for those who love culinary travel since there's not much nice food you can try in this area. After sometimes, I finally decided to try out one of the specialty (it's not exactly gyeongju's specialty but Busan's) food they have here which is Milmyeon.
Then I went to Anapji, the nearest tourist attraction around my hotel, since it's getting late so it's a better idea to choose somewhere close rather …

Happy Chappy Semiyak Bali~

Still rambling on a late post on my last vacation to Bali~ ^^ One of the restaurant I got to try around is a restaurant owned by Happy Salma's husband which is known as Happy Chappy, located in the center of Seminyak area. The decoration was super unique, and it makes you feel like having a meal in a high class restaurant in a ancient China period. =)  As soon as we get into the restaurant, there is this Buddha statue, which symbolize happiness and prosperity, welcoming us. And the rest of the restaurant decoration is super oriental.
And they have a separated Bar corner in the end side of the restaurant which has a slightly longer business hour time compare to the restaurant. Restaurant closed at around 11~11 30 pm, while the Bar section closed at around 1 ~ 2 am. In this restaurant which gives off oriental vibe, of course they would sell Chinese dishes. The first thing to order is the very basic kind but delicious dimsum menu, which is Siomay and Hakaw. I never been able to have…
