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 trying their dishes. I get to eat basil bread and their cakes as well. We ordered Es Teler Cake and Lapis Cheese Cake. The Es Teler Cake I will describe it later on in this post but the Lapis Cheese Cake, I must it taste just so-so... It doesn't taste bad but doesn't taste good either. >.<

1. Diablo Chicken
It's not the menu ordered by me but by one of my friend. The chicken meat is tender and the sauce is spicy and rich.

2. Fried Kuetiau with Vongole
I knew you would say "what?!". Why should I ordered this kind of stuff in this expensive restaurant? Well, I was like step into the restaurant on my second visit, see someone eating this on the other table and "Oh I want that!!". And it does worth a try, it doesn't taste like Akang Kuetiau but a rather Indonesian taste, which is spicy. (I think they use a balacan sambal in this menu).

3. Pork Belly Roasted
This might be the best dish I've had in the restaurant. The potato puree was so soft and it does a pretty good magic if you eat it together with the pork belly. =P The pork belly itself was so tender that it melts the moment it get into your mouth. Uhhhmmm~!!

4. Roasted Vegetable
During my 3rd visit, I've been like eating the whole week outside food, which oily and unhealthy, so I decided to have a "rather" healthy choice compare to the other menu which is roasted vegetable. And, again the menu really give some surprise to me. It taste just right, not too salty, neither it's too oily or creamy even with the potato puree spread over the plate. Yummy!!

5. Banana Rhum Cake
On the first taste, this cake taste quite good, but as you keep going on and on, the chocolate was too much and instead of banana choco rhum cake, it tastes more like a too much of chocolate chocolate cake.

6. Martabak Cake
This was an "it" cake for sometimes quite sometime ago, and I was a fan of martabak, and haven't got a chance to try this out since I was out of country for quite a long time. So, I decided to give it a try. One of the most disappointing thing is that the cake was served FROZEN!!! I know you have a lot customer but this doesn't mean that you didn't care about the quality of your food. If only the cake is not in a frozen state, I bet this one would taste quite lovable. The mixture of chocolate, cheese and nuts is just so right. Though it doesn't taste even a bit like martabak, but I would definitely order another slice on my next visit. Just don't serve it in a frozen state and I'll be very grateful.

7. Es Teler Cake
TADA!!! The most happening cake in this town~ And for now, you might not be able to find this anywhere, unless in this AMKC atelier restaurant. I ordered this during my first and second visit and each visit gives me a different impression. The time I tried this out during my first visit, the cake was served just right, the cake was so soft and the cream was so wonderful, it taste like a real es teler. o_O" The time I tried this out during my second visit, I was very much disappointed. Again the restaurant was at it busiest time, I asked for the cake after my meal, but they served it out before my meal. And what's even hateful is that they served it in a FROZEN STATE.

I've visited this restaurant in a total of three times, and 2 out of 3 times they served me FROZEN CAKE. I mean literally frozen one, where you can still feel the ice and everything. and even worse the second time I ate the es teler cake, the ice melted that there's water around the cake after sometimes, which makes the cake taste wet and bad. m.m"

The dishes is marvelous though. =D Just remember to tell the hall staff to prepare your cake after your meal and not in a frozen state and I guarantee you'll have a wonderful experience dining in this restaurant. ^^

Miryang Gang Rape = Signal's Last Unsolved Case?

If you're a fan of this Korean drama, Signal, which obviously I am then you would know that they're on their last case which tells about a gang rape which happens in a small city, Inju. A lot of people has been debating on whether this case is based on true events which happens back in Miryang in 2004. And once again the case which happened 12 years ago is getting people's attention.
Kalau kamu juga penggemar setia drama Korea berjudul "Signal", aku adalah salah satu penggemar beratnya, kamu pasti tahu kalau drama ini tengah dalam episode di mana mereka sedang berusaha memecahkan kasus terakhir mereka di mana terjadinya pemerkosaan beramai-ramai yang terjadi di sebuah daerah kecil, Inju. Banyak orang yang berpendapat kalau kasus ini dibuat berdasarkan kejadian yang pernah terjadi di Miryang di tahun 2004. Dan sekali lagi, kasus yang terjadi 12 tahun lalu itu memancing perhatian orang-orang. Last week episodes has been making my emotions to go up and down, and cry…

Seoul Plastic Surgery : Real Story for Breast Augmentation~ Operasi Plastik di Korea : Pembesaran Payudara~

I have always wanted a glamorous body. I have a flat chest, which makes me feel inferior when I have to go to the beach with a bunch of friends, where my friends wear beautiful bikini, while I'm only able to take a look and feel envy of it.
Dr. Kim Dong Gyu is one of the best korean surgeon in breast surgery, and can be considered as top breast surgeon in Korea. Dr. Kim is stationed in Izien Plastic Surgery Hospital, which has won several Customer Satisfaction Awards since 2011 up to 2014. This make me feel more comfortable to have the surgery here. Since I decided to go on with the surgery, the nurses took me to the 3rd floor for a blood sample, so you can see a bandage on my hand when I took my before pictures. ^^
The surgeon gives a very detailed consultation on my current breast problem, how he will do the surgery and what type of implants he will be using. I was amazed by how patient he is to answer my questions 1 by 1, as you knew that many Korean Surgeons are very impatient…

Horse Oil Mask~ Masker Kuda~

It's been quite sometime since I've updated my blog~! LOLZ~ I was away for Chinese New Year vacation, so I've been busy enjoying my time for almost 2 weeks~ I still feel lazy, and can't wait to enjoy my next vacation, which I don't know when.
Kekeke uda lama sekali engga update blog~! Karena sejak 2 minggu lalu, aku balik ke kampung halaman tercinta, yakni Indonesia, buat ngerayain Chinese New Year, berpuas-puas diri buat menikmati waktu luang selama hampir 2 minggu~ Aku masih merasa malas dan engga sabar buat nunggu liburan berikutnya, yang masih belum jelas kapan.

I've been trying this mask since the end of last time and I must say that this horse oil mask is superb, even better than the aquaringer mask sheet which I've been using for quite sometimes. This horse oil mask is being produced by the same company with the aquaringer mask which is 'mediheal'. Or should I just say that this mediheal company did a really good stuff in producing face sheet…
