Food Lovers' Day

Yesterday, I went with my girl friends to PI to waste another Saturday. First stop was at Pizza e birra, a new restaurant with a sorta like barnyard theme, the theme wasn’t all that clear to be honest -_-” Anyway, it has a cute spoon and fork wrapper which said “please unwrap me” with a picture of a woman winking.


Kinda cute for a wrapper

We ordered the Royal Four Cheese Pizza (i forgot what the cheeses are), fried calamari and spaghetti carbonara. The pizza was delightful in appearance and taste, but the portion was not much because we order the regular size (our fault really). The fried calamari was yummy, I like it so much!! The pasta had an average taste. We ate the main course in the speed of light since it’s already an hour past lunch hour and we’re hungry..

Pizza & Calamari, deadly combo

Then, we decided to have dessert pizza called “The Black Eye Pears”. It was a combination of dark chocolate and slices of pears on top of a pizza dough.

The pizza was served on a round steel plate with a high steel to support it. It was kinda funny for a pizza to be served in a such a way.

Funny stand, isn't it?

I wasn’t quite into this menu since I don’t like pears. Also, the texture of the pizza is a bit weird for my taste and the chocolate wasn’t that tasteful as well. But, it was fun to try a dessert pizza.

The dessert pizza was the last menu that we ordered before heading to our next destination. The bill came to a total of Rp 247.000,00. Quite cheap for a pizza menu located in a fancy place as Plaza Indonesia. I felt full as if my stomach had been filled to its maximal capacity, yet we had been longing to eat waffle at Gelare and so we had prepared our stomach for it.

We went to Kinokuniya as I was looking for Jeff Lindsay’s creations, better known as “Dexter in the Dark” or “Dearly Devoted Dexter”. It tells the story of a serial killer who was a medical student and is now working in the forensic department in Miami PD. Dexter Morgan, was his name, only kills people who deserved to die, such as murderers, rapists, etc.

Good book to read

Unfortunately the novel wasn’t available in Kino so I think I might have to ask someone overseas to buy it for me.

Our next destination was the Gelare Waffles Restaurant. The name pretty much says everything about what they are selling, Waffles. We’ve been wanting to have waffles and chatted for quite sometime now and yesterday we finally did. I ordered a large Belgian waffle topped with additional vanilla chocolate chip and capuccino ice cream. My two friends ordered a regular waffles with cookies and cream and blueberry ice cream. The taste was heavenly! The waffles are freshly made to order and the texture was just right, not too soft and not too crispy. I really can’t wait to eat here with Gen, he’s gonna love these waffles so much!!

The threes cabaleros, i mean waffles

The biggest 1 is mine! No sharing!

We chatted and exchanged stories while gobbling our own waffles. Yep, you guessed it, we didn’t share desserts! Strictly our code! =) We took a couple of picture of ourselves and decided to head off to another bookstore in search of my book.

Our last restaurant stop was actually more of a food court at Plaza Indonesia. Located at the Ground floor called Red Pepper. We wanted something that has the texture of a soup or broth, so we decided to have Soto Ayam and Sate Ayam. We got there only to find out that the Soto ayam was already sold out and all that was left was the satay.

We decided to buy only one portion of the satay since we are still full of the Belgian Waffles at Gelare.

Sour Sally Fanatics

Never ending dessert for them

For dessert my two crazy friends decided to have Sour Sally plain with various toppings on the side. What a day!
