Manhattan Fish Market, Lotte Shopping Avenue

This is my second time to Manhattan Fish Market at Lotte Shopping Avenue

This time, there is promo from the mall; buy one get one free for certain menu for quite a lot of tenants there. MFM participated and the special menu was fish and chips cherry snapper. We opted for the large and it was huge.

It was good, however I personally feel that the cherry snapper has a bit of fishy smell. Not sure if it is the fish’s own characteristic or the fish was not that fresh. Anyway, I prefer MFM than Fish and Co as their fried stuff feels lighter.

Marufuku

Yes, I do love Japanese food so most of my food adventure is going to be about trying out Japanese food eateries wherever I am.

A couple of weeks ago, I read post on Marufuku. Some people say their food is truly authentic Japanese food with heavenly taste so it sparked my curiousity.

We went to try this restaurant about last week just few days after Eid Holiday so the traffic was considerably smoother around town.

Marufuku is located at blok M area in a neighbourhood called little Tokyo here in Jakarta. Honestly, I found the area a bit creepy. Lots of pubs and clubs mixed with a lot of Japanese restaurant. No wonder the area is called little Tokyo.

As we sat down and ordered the food, we realized that we were the only ones not Japanese there (apart from the staff). All other guests were Japanese.

Ordered chicken katsu curry rice, salmon aburo sushi, gyoza, agedashi tofu. Loved their curry rice, gyoza and agedashi tofu but nothing special about the sushi.

Bakmi Gandi 73

I heard good reviews about this place for non-halal noodles and we did have a good impression on the noodle when my brother brought it to family gathering some time ago. So we were very eager to try it out again.

They are located in Muara Karang near wet market and normally opened from morning til 3pm only.

I like the noodle texture.. It’s just right, not too soft, not too tough. They didn’t have much of side dishes when we were cause they don’t have enough helper around (it’s Eid holiday).

We tried their regular noodle. Hubby loved it. While I liked the noodle texture, I found that the overall taste is a bit too bland.

Sushi World PIK

Went to Sushi World again for the third time now. This time is because I purchased deal from LivingSocial for 1 appetizer, 3 sushi and 2 drink for less than IDR200k (cant remember exactly how much).

The sushi there is quite tasty. Definitely not the best but one that I wouldn’t mind going back for sushi again and again. Especially when the popular sushi chain prices keep going up.

So we ordered chicken karage, dragon roll, wow wow sushi and sushi world roll. Nothing too fancy but all were tasty.

Auntie’s Lomie PIK

We always love the taste of garlicky lomie that we frequent in Singapore so when we spotted a lomie shop at PIK, we went ahead and tried it.

The lomie here is different with the ones in Singapore. The usual lomie (a.k.a lor mee) in Singapore is thick soup based with crunchy pork lard and spoonfull of chopped garlic on top of the noodle. This lomie is slightly less thick soup based topped with minced meat that has been fragrantly stirfried with onion (bawang merah).

The taste is equally nice. However, due to personal preference, I prefer the garlicky taste of Singapore’s lor mee

We also ordered their special noodle. It tasted ok but not to die for. I would probably go back for their lomie but not noodle
