Ebi Ramen the Great! Smile Jan 28, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Ramen

This was the menu a year back specially only for the Jakarta Branch. Marutama is known for the chicken soup broth ramen which was very strong in its flavoring and juices.

And this was the bowl I was looking for - the mix of chicken broth and sweetness of ebi juice into one hearty bowl. Not exactly hearty as this ramen bowl is pretty tight and small than a usual ramen which are in authentic Japan, massive.

It tasted just the most delicious way as I wanted it - this is the best choice for those who had trouble finishing the only original chicken soup, as I had a hard time - it was so strong! This has the nice amount of rich chicken with the fresh, lightness of seafood ebi and a spritz of lemon. Ramen was springy and sluuuurpingly deeeelish. mad

$15 was the price you gotta fish in. It is a bit on the ex side judging from portion, but taste cannot lose.

I even have forgotten halfway to add in sesame and fried garlic!!! Which means, the bowl is good as it comes to your way without any other condiment.

Service was A+, the waitress was caring and attentive, noting on when our water glass was halfway empty and asking how is the food.

Best thing was, THERE WAS NO Q!

It does look as good as it is in the bright picture! smile

Service was fast, as one of the guys from the resto just came by and say "would you like to eat nasi briyani mutton satay etc." whatever on their menu was. And that's how my friend and I ate this. From far, I saw the stall was a grade B in cleanliness.

Looking at the menu, the mutton briyani. The mutton was very soft so it was easy to bite and it was fairly a huge side, but the portion of the rice wasn't as much as it used to be for briyani (IT IS HUGE RIGHT, LIKE COVERING THE ENTIRE HUGE PLATE) but in this case, it wasn't much.

It's given nicely on a banana leaf, adding points for service, laid on top of a tray. The curry and cream was given abundantly and vegetables was given at a scoop mount. Rice was very flavorful with the spice, a bit of pepperish side but it was good, I was perspiring when eating! But now, I do believe for $6 you used to get a hefty amount, now you get lesser.

Service was then on spot, as he served up on the table and brought our meal, because he did approach to us first. So that quite counts as a nice serving point in a hawker center! smile

Although the place is quiet, and you feel like owning the entire place, Hanis is a cafe which also joins Starbucks to open 24 hours in this branch.

Portion to fit a king in the evening (where you should eat like a pauper instead) the set meal consisted of the dessert, which first I thought was warm bread to accompany the appetizer cream soup and the main meal and a choice of drink. And garlic bread too!

The turkey set meal for $13.90 included the vegetables and potato as your carbo fix! The meat, was just like any other chicken/white meat as if you're curious what's the difference. The meat was not as hot and juicy and soft, but it was paired with a good complement of fruit jam (strawberry or blueberry) to smear all over with eating your poultry.chopstickchopstick

Eating this hearty meal the day before war (read: exam) gave a sense of fulfillment and releasing the relaxing endorphines when I ate the dessert which I thought was the warm bread for the soup - my favorite, CREAM PUFF! IT WAS HUGEEEE FILLED WITH sous cream, just the way I like it. It made my night at least smile

I miss my Pho Smile Jan 09, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Vietnamese | Food Court

AND TO SAY, to present you the best pho that I miss so much.

I dont' know where else to eat pho or vietnamese food around town as its not generally found in most food stalls and such, and pho noodles with beef brisket slices has the most aromatic and refreshing soup noodle broth I know, more than ramen.

It's been a while since I've eaten this, and passing over the SMU KOUFU and to see a lone stall with an auntie serving up, the hot soup is filled to the brim of the big pot with the signature onion rings.

Not exactly as the ones I've eaten best back in town in a more flavorful broth, this cured my dreaming of eating pho. For $4, and an additonal $1++ you should get rolls but it was sold out when I came. This is then a place to bookmark to get some good for your wallet and vietnamese food fix! Sure to come here again and get some inner energy!

My cousin sis, a good eater too, brought me for such a good hideout just a block away from my house where I always passed but never gave a try because it looked too al-fresco and high expensive-y.

We had our tums filled with a good dinner popular choice and their unique dessert style.

Before watching WICKED, I had then a properly wickedly good healthy meal ending with a strawberry cheesecake sweetness.

His deep fried battered fish fillet - forgot the name of the fish - in potato wedges and salad was in a fresh and healthy proportion of meal. The big fillet fish, fried in herbs, was visibly seen in the fried skin, which added a delectable smell and properly soft, melting white meat in your mouth, with the flavored wedges hidden underneath the fillet which was utterly ghooood, and the fresh salad in light oil dressing. The meal was priced affordably in a chic corner of the city for $13.90.

In town, I tell you, can't find this price and place, anywhere else.

The chef, Jason, which my sis introduced and knew him well was only the one-man cook and coming in to say that "this is not your mere fish. Fresh water wish compared to the dory fillet which eats trash like catfish, this one eats clean hence the very white-colored meat."

I ate it off like there's no tomorrow as fish fillets are my home menu by day. Of course, as its more well done and far better in food styling than home cooked.

Desserts, desserts, desserts, hear hear. Their new style soft strawberry cheesecake has such a soft texture that it is creme brulee style cheesecake, as so to say, and approved by the chef of course (hooray, points for me there). That was the hot dessert. The other was the traditional sliced cheesecake strawberry, but in this case where you expect such thickness, this one was on the milky side where it isn't too salty and gives a fine, soothing not overpowering finish.

It was a good early dinner where we own the place with no one else and just the chef chatting and serving away. I'm not overrating this review, as this place is too good to be true.
