Bebek Malio: Clear Representation of Good Local Food in Affordable Price

Bebek Malio

You might say pasta is good, but you cannot eat it every day. It tastes pretty flat and not even fulfilling. Especially when you are Indonesians, our complex society believes that eating rice is essential to keep our energy restored. In case you are looking for decent local food with affordable prices, Bebek Malio can be the answer. Not only possible but the best decision to make 🙂

 Bebek Malio

Nestled in Rawamangun exactly one row with Quiznos, Bebek Malio own a spacious dining area with semi al fresco dining experience. Stepped inside the venue, each guest would be greeted by small staff and warm ambiance. I just love how comforting the place is. I just can enjoy my meal, laid back and enjoy my time for a while. A unique experience to enjoy local food.

 Nasi Bebek Goreng

 Nasi Bebek Goreng

Start with the crowd pleaser menu Nasi Bebek Goreng. Featuring the nicely executed duck meat with crispy skin and juicy meat; served with sambal on the side. It might look simple, but taste undoubtedly delicious! That chicken has been marinated nicely and pair with the fragrant rice for extraordinarily guilty pleasure. Also, you must eat this with sambal for more heat. Delicious! :)

Another rising star item is Nasi Goreng Bebek. The stir fried rice with shredded duck meat and more egg. What you can expect here is the perfect smokiness and wok hey aroma of it. Also, that shredded duck meat is an iconic element in that plate that just satisfy your palate nicely. Not too complicated, but just right.

 Tahu Telur

 Tahu Telur

If you love Tahu Telur, they served the must try one! A hearty combination of tofu omelet and delicious peanut sauce will just melt in your mouth. Even though it comes in a generous portion, you can eat it without feeling so full. Perhaps, a plate of steam rice is necessary to boost up your energy while enjoying this as well.

 Jamur Goreng Crispy

Jamur Goreng Crispy

Still not enough? Jamur Goreng Crispy can be the answer. This bite sized mushroom is crispy and juicy. You can have it as a snack or together with your choice of meal.

For the beverage, they served a wide variety of juices. I saw many customers order the Es Jeruk as known as Orange Juice for the sweet refreshment. Since I am a bit full that time, I just order a glass of Hot Tea for a soothing feeling.

 Bebek Malio

Bebek Malio is one of the must visit the local restaurant in Jakarta. All menu comes in lovely flavor and pretty affordable prices. You can treat yourself better here! :)

BabiquBBQ: Chasiu Rice In The Next Level

 BabiquBBQ

If you follow my food trip recently, you might see numbers of Chasiu Rice been posted on my account. This typical comfort food of mine is a lot in Singapore but not in Jakarta. It's pretty difficult to find a good one right here until BabiquBBQ founded.

Two good guys work partnering to operate this brand. One of them works in the kitchen and the other one work for the entire management. The simple collaboration that turns into a significant business opportunity. I meet them before and yes they are pretty humble! They will show you a real definition of chasiu and crispy pork belly.

 Egg

 Chasiu

 Siobak

Nestled in Pluit Mas Selatan, BabiquBBQ is still homemade and small. They have several dining tables for four persons each without any decor. This lovely setup reminds me the taste of hawker food (Kopitiam style) in a Singapore. Not even complicated, but comforting and satisfying. Raise your hand who love this! :)

Only three menus available here including Nasi Chasiu, Nasi Siobak or even Nasi Campur. Let's highlight one by one! 

 Siobak

 Chasiu

 Nasi Campur

My personal favorite is Nasi Campur (IDR 37,000 / S$ 4.30). Featuring a hearty combination between nicely marinated pork meat, crispy pork belly, and fragrant rice; bathed in rich soy sauce. It's tasty, juicy, and tender. You might expect the melt in mouth texture of chasiu because it happens all the time! Also, that chasiu and crispy pork belly have been soaked up the richness of that sauce until so fragrant but not even soggy at all. If you are looking for more heat, they served this with sambal matah on the side. Just delicious.

 Chasiu

 Nasi Chasiu

 Nasi Chasiu

In fact, chasiu is better regarding taste and texture. Therefore, Nasi Chasiu is what you are looking for. 'More red meat, more goodness' is what comes up in my mind when shooting for this. It's quite similar to the one I taste in Singapore (1 Michelin Star Restaurant). Once again, perfectly marinated and packed with flavor. Time to eat? 🙂

Crispy Pork Belly

Crispy Pork Belly

 Nasi Siobak

Nasi Siobak is not my kind of menu, but it's completely different when it comes to my mom & sister. They love this more instead of the chasiu because of the crispiness overload. Crunch, crunch, and more crunch whenever you bite it. That fat layer at the center has successfully added another dimension of texture (chewy and a tad of gummy). After all, it still depends on your preference.

 BabiquBBQ

BabiquBBQ served a high-quality Nasi Campur with affordable prices and beautiful display. All menu is absolutely house made and cooked by passion. Refine your taste buds now! :)

However, if the bazaar period is done, you still can enjoy it by contacting them through Instagram Direct Message/ WA/ Line. Fast respond can be expected. Because they always standby to take care your order.

 Chibi Maruko Chan

Start with my favorite characters called Chibi Maruko Chan and her bf. The display looks green because it has avocado flavor. And yes, I love avocado! It tastes pretty sweet, milky, and a tad of fruit. I expect the flavor might be broken because he presentation is just excellent. In fact, it is not, the flavor is still there and pretty good as well. However, it is easy to melt, though. You should snap it fast and devour it.

They all come in different flavor either mango, strawberry, avocado, mix berry, lychee, longan, and more. Which one is the best one? I cannot say it correctly because every people got their preferences. I love melon and kiwi, while my friends love strawberry and passionfruit more. In a sense, nothing wrong with any flavor, it is just the matter of your liking.

They also have a seasonal item using special kind of tea to create a light blue color of character ice cream. It tastes less sweet than the usual flavor, and I just love it. You should try this while it lasted.

Cocobeet Jakarta: Superfoods From Boston; Now in Jakarta

 Cocobeet Jakarta

Superfoods is essential nowadays. More people live a healthier lifestyle and gradually change their habit from consuming fatty food to low-fat produce. I've been residing in Singapore since 2016 and cannot get myself enough when it comes to Acai Bowl/Salad Bowl. In fact, Jakarta got lack options for superfoods until Cocobeet arrived.

Founded in Boston (USA), Cocobeet expand their market to Asia by entering Jakarta recently. Specialized in superfoods and cold pressed juices; both items are also available here. You might expect the best taste of superfoods because they have been accredited 'Top 15 Restaurants Localwide' by YELP! USA. It sounds so skeptical, but admitting that statements are necessary to bring me here. My honest opinions would be followed! :)

Nestled in Senayan City exactly at the top floor, Cocobeet own a spacious dining area with minimalist concept. Stepped inside the venue, you might find a wooden decoration with a touch of white and black. It can be simplified as fully furnished but not so tight. I just love how that wooden architecture applied to the food appliances (wooden spoon & wooden fork) along with the crystal clear food display. Just find your preferred seat and have a good time here! :)

 Acai Berry

 Acai Berry

 Acar Berry

Starts with the crowd pleaser menu called Acai Berry (IDR 95,000 / S$ 10,10). Featuring the mixed berries smoothies with fresh cut bananas, shredded coconuts, and mixed nuts. I can say this list is mind blowing since all elements work together in my mouth! There is a crunchiness from peanuts, creaminess from that liquid, and extra sweetness from that shredded coconuts. I ever taste a similar version of this in Singapore with twice costs, and yes, this one is pretty affordable. Feels more grateful with this finding! :)

 Vanilla Maple Cereal

Vanilla Maple Cereal

Another iconic menu here is Vanilla Maple Cereal (IDR 60,000 / S$ 6,60). Featuring hearty bowl of shredded coconuts, mixed peanuts, and nicely cut fruits; bathed in creamy fresh milk. Apart from what it looks, it tastes better. The mixed peanuts as the base of that bowl have soaked up the richness of that milk while the fresh fruits itself remains crispy and not even soggy. Such a complex combination that surprisingly works well in my mouth.

 Avocado Toasts

If you love Avocado Toast (IDR 60,000 / S$ 6,60), then you can be vegan. Because this item is the most creative innovation for the vegan food lover. Featuring the crispy and thick baguette with a thick layer of avocado, cherry tomatoes, and virgin olive oil. Once you bite it, you can feel the perfect crunchiness from that bread with incredible like the meaty texture from that avocado. What I love the most from this menu is it's pretty fulfilling.
