Eat|Benedict, Grand Indonesia

After sometime, finally me & Mr. F have a proper time for Saturday Date 😀 We went to Grand Indonesia purposely to visit Benedict upon my request because they provide Martabak Pancake during August.

We were lucky that the place not very crowded when we arrived. So we can choose place to sit. We took sometime to choose what to eat since every menu looks tempting.

Since it’s our brunch, I decided to have egg benedict from the menu. They have lots of selection to choose! Classic, Pulled Chicken, Mexican, Florentine, Pork Belly and Japanese Benedict. Their best seller are Classic, Pork Belly and Japanese Benedict. Mr. F had Honey Mustard Crusted Pork Belly and Japanese Benedict for me.

Love the egg yolk

Honey Mustard Crusted Pork Belly | IDR 80,000 Soft scrambled egg, roasted king oyster, sliced apples, crouton, broken juice. It was so delicious! Mr. F rarely eat pork, but this is an exception. He has no regret choosing this meal. The sauce was juicy which compliment the soft pork belly.

Japanese Benedict | IDR 80,000 Poached eggs, shiitake rice, chicken hamburg sautéed horenso. dynamite hollandaise, side salad. The combination compliment each layer. The poached eggs were cooked like what I expected and the shiitake rice matched with hamburg and sautéed horenso. We were happy with the dishes. 🙂

Then we continue with the desserts. Martabak Pancake and Durian Ice Cream!

Durian Ice Cream

Durian Ice Cream | IDR 35,000 the durian ice cream topped with black sticky rice, durian paste  below (original) and peanut crunch. Again, Mr. F was happy with this! Well, we rarely found places that served durian ice cream with the real durian fruit. Usually it already blend to become an ice cream. 🙂 Totally deserved 4 thumbs!

Martabak Pancake

Martabak Pancake | IDR 65,000 nutella, cheddar cheese, almond crunch, condensed milk. The waiter served & grated the cheese when they brought our martabak pancake. Well, this was the first time for us treated like this. 😀 The martabak pancake was delicious, for me the sweetness was perfect, not too sweet. But for him, it was too sweet but still acceptable. I love nutella and cheese together. Yummy!

Rooftop

Rainy Evening

This was taken from my iphone 5s, sorry for the low quality due to low exposure.

Having a rooftop is always inside my wish list. It’s because I love just to stare far away and enjoying the view. Even, I think I could just stay there alone, think nothing while listening to chillin’ songs and sipping a cup of hot chocolate. Mmm..so relaxing. I felt that I’m lucky that I’m working in a shopping mall (especially in construction dept), so I could have a chance to sneak to the rooftop last night. Well actually because of Mr F ‘access card’. 😀

Candid by Mr F, I was rubbing my eye actually

There were just two of us here, since some maintenance staffs went back home. I started to drizzle again when we walked around. This was the second time I came, my first was in the afternoon during lunch time.

While the inside the mall was crowded, it was very silent in the rooftop. I wanted to see the sunset, but we were too late. But I was happy that I still can see the pinkish sky even just for a while.

Taken by Mr F from his phone

We left the rooftop when it starts to rain. Hopefully Mr F brought an umbrella, so we shared the umbrella. *feels so romantic :p

Oh, and it’s been more than a month since I cut my hair short after 5 years. 🙂
