Sweet and Savory Dessert by Island Creamery


Island Creamery is one of my favorite dessert place in Jakarta. They opened their first store in 2004 at Flavour Bliss, Alam Sutera. Then they opened another store at Kota Kasablanka Mall, Pondok Indah Mall, Kelapa Gading Mall, Summarecon Bekasi and Puri Indah Mall. Last saturday with my officemate, I went to Island Creamery Puri Indah Mall to join the Food Tasting. They are going to launch new menu in July. I have a previlege to tried their new menu more than anyone else.


Like another first outlet in Alam Sutera, they made the same interior and bring it as identity of Island Creamery with light wood chair and small corner for children to drawing and colouring. They have indoor and outdoor area, so you can choose which are is suite for you.


As the sweet and savory dessert they prepare, they have 2 quirky savory dessert and 1 favorite milkshake. Let we start with The Elvis Milkshake combines fresh banana ice cream blended with dark chocolate fudge and peanut butter for that extra savory kick. It is so suitable for summer, especially who loves peanuts butter will love this milkshake.


The Elvis Milkshake Rp. 35.000,-

Secret Pop! Sundae, which has chocolate and caramel sauces drizzled on Vanilla ice cream topped with caramel popcorn and candied chicken bacon bits. It surprise me who never has any experience with savory and sweet ice sundae. In my first bite, I really doubt this ice cream but in the end I was not really care about the chicken bacon on top. It gives you and extraordinary experience to eat more than sweet dessert. 

Secret Pop! Sundae Rp. 39,000,-

The Lighting Rod Sundae has walnut brownie topped off with a scoop of chocolate peanut butter ice cream, chocolate fudge and salted pretzel sticks. It is suitable for chocolate lover like me. I really like it when the walnut brownie mix with chocolate butter ice cream and the pretzel sticks in one full spoon. I really love the richness and saltiness of peanut butter and pretzel sticks. It will be my next favorite sundae.


The Lighting Rod Sundae Rp. 39.000,-

As a gift, Island Creamery gives me 4 boxes of cookies. I love cookies and I am really how the cookies taste like and I am going to paired them with some tea or coffee.

Sorry for super non update and non reliable food blogger

Hey foodie friends, sorry for not updating so long time. I am still living. I had been eating a lot of yummy or unyummy food. But in this 6 months, I have been really focused with my job as a banker and I really want to achieve something in my banking career. I push myself in my career tried the best that I can be. I worked over time, somehow I miss my leisure time. I miss find some new place to eat, but I couldn't. I tried some new side job, some new opportunities but I failed. 

I lose my self and no more excited to go to work, then someday I woke up noise in my head told me how I am starting to apply to become a banker, the reason why I could love my job. Then I realize that I wanna be a banker. I love for my job, besides that I am getting smarter to manage my time. Lately, I am really busy at work, but when I went home I miss something. I miss something that makes me busy, make me passionate again that is blogging.

One day, I puzzled myself to write again to back to my old hobby. I came again to food tasting. I see new people. I am back on track. I am blogging again. 

Wait me for first reviewed after my long break. Wish you are all excited, so see you


xoxo,

Starbucks Lunch Product


Last wednesday, I invited with Starbucks to Wholesome Food Delicious Conversation. In this time Starbucks is getting ready for launch some lunch product. They held this discussion near my office in Starbucks Pessangrahan. I am so happy finally they make event in my living area. Here's the story

As usual, we have known Starbucks as coffee store, so we start our discussion with coffee tasting. They served us Medium Kenya. It is light coffee and this is one of my favourite coffee bean in Starbucks. Accompany with lemon biscuit, it is nice to accompany the coffee. I love the coffee and the pairing.


Then we start our dinner to taste and to score also give an opinion about the Lunch Product in Starbucks. Actually Starbucks has many lunch menu in their store, but not all store are provide this lunch menu. In this lunch product, they have 5 menus. There are Caesar Salad, Pesto Fussili with Roasted Eggplant and Tomato, Farfalle with Beef Meatball and Sauteed Spinach, Pesto Tomato Mozarella Panini, and  Grilled Chicken Humus Panini.

We started with Caesar Salad. It looks like another Caesar Salad, there is nothing special with this salad. Moreover, I think the vegetable is not really fresh maybe because its refrigirated for could hour, also the dressing is too little, I need more dressing. All the component are right, but I need more improvement. 


Pesto Fussili with Roasted Eggplant and Tomato. It looks little bit dry, but it smelled good. This menu intended for vegetarian. I think the pesto has not really strong enough for me, but the tomato in exact amount. For the roasted eggplant, I think it would be better to change it to be mushroom, according my judgement more people like mushroom than people who like eggplant.


Farfalle with Beef Meatball and Sauteed Spinach. It comes really nice and it smelled good. I am a big fan of creamy pasta and so of many people out there will drooling when saw this yummy dish. Beef Meatball always reminds me of IKEA meatball, so my expectation of any kind of meatball little bit high. This Beef Meatball is nailed it. I like it, it is tender and well marinated. Farfalle comes so good accompany with spinach, it will be healthy as well.


Pesto Tomato Mozarella Panini is pesto in Panini version. It comes little bit sprawl, but the mozarella will kick your taste buds. It taste so great yummy panini, I like it, but the pesto is not really strong I tasted tomato domain the panini. It looks by the picture that show they sliced the tomato quite thick.


Grilled Chicken Humus Panini comes with chili flakes and red pepper powder on top. It makes this panini little bit spicy. Grilled Chicken little bit dry, but they combine with mushroom so you'll get the juicy from the mushroom. They use fresh vegetable so this is another healthy food from Starbucks which you could grab in your rush lunch time. 

 

For all I am waiting for this lunch menu, I wish I could grab their pasta and panini as soon as possible and I wish they could make many improvement that we discuss.
