Eating at PASAR SANTA - Part Deux

Many vendors that exist at Pasar Santa. Every vendor offer different kind of food or different theme and concept for their store. That's one of the reason why I came here. This time I bring along my sisters. From my 1st experience visited Pasar Santa, we decided to arrived at Pasar Santa at 5pm. Because we think all vendors must be already open in that time. So we have 4 hours until 9pm to dine.


Well, after on-site, our guess was totally wrong. The place was already crowded. And its getting hot and humid. With a very long queue in every vendors. huhuuu.... So this time, my strategy is find a vendors that look decent and not too crowded.


Ki.Cchin is our 1st destination that day. The concept is like Japanase Street Food Stall. With limited seat, fit around 9 peoples. Ki.Cchin served Japanese Tepanyaki that cost IDR 20.000 for Regular and IDR 25.000 for Large Size.

TONGGY GYUTAN DON - IDR 20.000 (REGULAR)
A too thin slice beef tongue. It so well seasoning. The tongue is tender.


MIXED TEPPANYAKI - IDR 25.000
It's a mixed between beef, chicken, tofu and vegetables. The sauce is way to salty to my palate. But the beef and chicken cook to tenderness.

Opening hours: Tue - Sun 12pm - 9pm


The one that capture my eyes earlier is the bright signing board that wrote Creme de la Creme. It's got to be something. Next thing is the smokey Lab tube. Wow... I'm just like in the real Laboratory. Curious, and  it's a Creme Brulee that they sell. I choose the green tea topped with caramel sugar candy and Nutella instead of the original one. I wish the green tea taste a bit more bold. At least the texture is smooth and soft and not too sweet. It cost IDR 20.000 for the Creme Brulee and IDR 5.000 to add toppings

Sepotong Kue served petite home made choux, pastry and ice cream. Bu too bad when I got here, the only left from the is only the Ice Cream. They have chocolate java, green tea, vanilla, and latte ice cream. So I bought their latte ice cream topped with melted hershey chocolate that cost IDR 15.000. The ice cream texture pretty smooth with the right amount of sweetness. Gotta try their choux and pastry next time.

BURANGRANG placed in the back place beside Claypot Popo. My sister order a plate of batagor that day. Served hot. Because it fried when we order. Love the texture. it's chewy and crunchy. The peanut butter sauce also good. With a hint of spicy.


YOKO FRIES served a snack with potato as a base. What I've got above is potato wedges with beef bacon chunk that have crispy texture, and add a mayonnaise and barbeque sauce. The taste pretty nice. I wish it served more warm.


Guess my hubby still can't moved on from Cendur Bar. He spotted queued for the Cendur. even though that day the queue for Cendur was so long, he even didn't give up. This time he tried their Green tea. It's a durian with shaving ice topped with green tea ice cream and garnish with Oreo biscuit. It supposed to be Green tea kit kat. But since they run out for the Kit Kat, then we change it to Oreo. Like the green tea taste. Not too bitter and not too sweet. So its balancing the durian.

Our journey end at ROTI ENENG. Like its name, Roti Eneng serve many variant of fluffy bread with its homemade filling. They have a lot of choice for filling. Since when I came already near a closing time, so they run out the svory bread. Miss Eneng (sorry dunno her name hehehhe)... suggest me to try the Caramel Earl Grey. Its even not listed in their menu. Because she said, she only made it several times. So not a regular menu. Well, if that so, I go with the Caramel Earl Grey then. And I'm in love with it. The caramel is not too thick and not too sweet. The earl grey is smells good and not just a hint. So it has a great balance with the caramel. OMG! You should try it! As for the drink I ordered their home made Ice Chocolate Sea Salt. The milk is not too thick. with a hint of sea salt, this ice chocolate good paired with your bread.


CARAMEL EARL GREY BREAD - IDR 25.000
ICE CHOCOLATE SEA SALT - IDR 20.000

Eating at PASAR SANTA - Part One

Been a while I want to try to eat at Pasar Santa. I've heard that Pasar Santa has improve not just a traditional market, but involved to a place where we can eat. Not like other food vendors at traditional market, Pasar Santa dining area full of promising food vendors that enough make me drooling.


Even though its clean enough, but never imagine a convey and cold place here at Pasar Santa. Because most of vendors only have maximum 10 - 15 chairs capacity. Imagine if its full booked. You have to queue. And some vendors have a very serious queue. Long like train. I've been to Pasar Santa twice, just because I'm curious with all the vendors. Before begin your journey to Pasar Santa here's I give you several hints
1. Make sure you wear a comfortable clothes, since its non-AC place
2. Leave your heels, wear Sandals or Flat shoes
3. Bring some cash, most of vendors prefer cash even though some of them have debit or BCA Flash
4. If you already know where to go and what to eat, pay attention of their opening hours. Even though it says open in certain times, but it depends on the vendors. For example DOG vendor. It says open at 3 but when I visit they just ready at 4.30pm!! Better check their Instagram.Usually they updated their opening hours.
5. Unlike the other restaurant, they have pretty late opening hours. Around 12am to 3pm. Again, better check their Instagram.
6. Better come early, even though most vendors write their closing time, but many of them already sold out before closing time. Like Papricano Mexicana for example. They already sold at 6pm!!
7. Coming early also to avoid a very long queue and end with disappointed because they out of stock.

1st VISIT


NASI GORENG HITAM - IDR 28.000
Fried rice made from squid Ink served with fried egg
Taste wise not too big portion. The only kick from this fried rice is only the hint of spiciness.

BEEF QUESADILLA - IDR 25.000
At first I was tempting to order their Burrito or Taco. But remembering I still want to explore several food vendors here at Pasar Santa, so I (only) ordered Beef Quesadilla. Surprisingly, Papricano give the generous amount of beef and cheese in their Quesadilla. Made by order so you'l get the warm food from them. Love their Salsa and Guacamole sauce. RECOMMENDED!

SAUCE (White, Cheese, Red) - IDR 5.000
So curious with  this hotdog. They made the bun from charcoal. That's why the bun color is black. What I have above is Single Hotdog with White Sauce. White Sauce is combination between mayonnaise and black-pepper. It turned to be a good pairing.

So curious saw their preparation. Setting this and that. No wonder, December 26th was their 1st open and exist at Pasar Santa. And since it 1st launching, they give it free for their customers that day. Woooww!!  Lucky me to be the 1st who can taste it that day. Like its name, It's a Wrap served a wrap kind of food that you can choose the filling. They made the wrap from spinach. That's why the colour is green. They serve chicken, Dory Fish and Beef. Then you can choose 3 kind of veggies that you want to input to your wrap. The choice between Tomato, Lettuce, Cucumber, Paprika or Pineapple. Last you choose the sauce, barbeque, mushroom, black-pepper or mayonnaise. For my wrap above, I choose Fish with lettuce and tomato paired with mayonnaise. The fish taste crispy on the skin and still tender inside. The important thing is, its not smell fishy. The mayo taste less kick. I expected to be more bold on the sauce. While on the other day, my sister had their Beef with Barbeque sauce and it turn to be great.

CASA - Kemang Jakarta

Casa located in Kemang area, close to McDonald and in the upper floor of Aksara Bookstore. I've been here twice, and both of my visit is only for their dessert.


Casa don't have any spacious space. But it still really convey with a big glass of windows where you see the busy street of Kemang. Casa set for a big couch around their restaurant and some of wooden chairs and tables in the middle. You also can find the attractive bar in end of the Casa Area.


DESSERT


3 KINDS OF CREME BRULEE - IDR 40.000
Lemongrass, Strawberry Vanilla and Pistachio
This Creme Brulee is the first that spotted on my eye. They have 3 flavors in one plate. I imagine a thick amount of creme brulee in one plate. But then, the creme brulee came in a thin amount. But since it came in a 3 plate, I feel delightful though. I just straight give you conclusion about all 3 flavor of this Creme Brulee. Surprisingly, none of those 3 I like. I'm a bit disappointing that all the flavors not popped out and it feels tasteless. But the texture pretty good. Not too dense or runny. I guess Casa have to make an improvement for this Creme Brulee.


CHOCOLATE PLATTER OF TART, DARK CHOCOLATE MOUSSE & WHITE  CHOCOLATE PANNA COTTA - IDR 60.000
I had this dessert on my second visit to Casa. I still a bit skeptic, remembering that their Creme Brulee failed to impress me. But then, I decided to get my luck. And OMG! this dessert succeed made me moved on from the heart breaking. Consist of 3 kind of dessert on my plate. My 1st favorite is the chocolate mousse that garnish with the chocolate crisp, the the white chocolate panna cotta garnish with raspberry. The texture a bit dense, but still smooth. And the last is the dark chocolate cake. My oh my... this black beauty is also soft and tasty. All those 3 dessert really melted in my mouth. Not too sweet which I like, so its not too overwhelmed.


RED VELVET CAKE - IDR 55.000
Red Velvet cake from Casa in provide by Union Restaurant. If you ever taste the Union's cakes, then you must be already familiar with this Red Velvet cake. The cake is to die for. It so smooth, so moist and not too sweet. The cream cheese  is so devilishly yummy. Topped with crispy crumble.

DRINKS


PICCOLO - IDR 30.000
Take a sip of Piccolo that consist with hot ristretto and topped with a warm silky milk. Piccolo that Casa served is good. With a well balance.


SHAKERATTO - IDR 40.000
Like its name, shakeratto is an espresso that shake with ice till we got the foam on top. Like the medium acidity. Served cold.

CAPPUCCINO
At the end, its pretty great having a nice afternoon at Casa. The service is really great. perhaps, I'll try their meals. Oh ya.... For non-smoking person, I guess Casa is not the one for you. Because Casa did not separate their area. So you can smoke anywhere.

Hot Tea

SUMMER BREEZE - IDR 45.000++
Grapes, Pear, Orange Juice
If you see for a refreshing and not too sweet drink, then you have to go to Summer Breeze. Soo good.
