It's Kenny Rogers

Last Wednesday I went to Grand Indonesia with my brother to find some clothes from him.. My brother is a bit picky with his clothes.. He will wear his favorite t-shirt over and over again until my mom (and me) yells at him.. He is into science and everything.. His favorite t-shirt? The one with shark print on it.. :)


So here is my review about Kenny Rogger's Roasters


Photobucket


I like the atmosphere in this restaurant.. It's very comfy yet friendly.. On that time, the staff was apologizing to me when my food takes a longer more time to wait.. I don't even complain even once.. So I think they have been trained perfectly.. That's a great service..

When I got here, there were lots of peope.. It's because people are going to have their iftar (break fasting)..


Photobucket

A mouth-watering menus.. Yum!!

We both loves a great lemon tea, Kenny gives us that..

We have this muffin for our iftar.. Well my brother did, since I'm not fasting on that day.. It's chocolate muffin, with raisins inside.. Tasty!! Nice and moist.. I crave for more.. And by the way.. The have promo for this muffin.. If you order for a dozen muffin, you will only pay for half of dozen..

My brother ordered Chicken Pasta Meal.. That is chicken of your choice (thigh or breast) with spaghetti bolognese and side dish of your choice.. There are three types of sauce for your chicken, that is original mushroom, spicy barbecue, and black pepper sauce and he chose spicy barbecue.. Then you could choose lots of side dish to choose, this time he chose mashed potato with chicken gravy..


My choice?
I chose Arabian Chicken Meal.. I've been craving for Arabian and Middle Eastern food then when I found this meal on the menu without a doubt I ordered this menu.. It's arabian sauce chicken with briyani rice, a side dish and a muffin..


Photobucket
A really smooth silky mashed potato laced with buttery, creamy chicken gravy which kinda taste like chicken soup.. Really nice bolognese.. You can really taste the tomato but for my taste it needs more herbs maybe bay leaf.. 


Photobucket
I satisfied with this dish since I am craving for an Arabic taste.. The sauce was really spicy.. The taste of cloves, nut meg and black pepper were very dominant especially the cloves.. Briyani rice was very mild and the peanuts create some texture to the rice.. When you combined them together, it matches perfectly.. And the refreshing salad (my chose for side dish) makes them so perfect.. 


The best part of Kenny Rogger's Roasters? Man.. Those chicken were so tender.. As soon as you stick your fork through it, it falls off from the bone.. I don't really need a knife to separate the meat from the bone.. I only use the knife to cut the meat into small bites..


If you seek for American comfort food, you have to go to Kenny Roger's Roasters (KRR).. It will satisfy you.. Trust me!

Ramadhan Rhapsody - Break Fasting with Bloggies and Tairyo

Hey there!!
I'm so excited for this post.. Curious much?


So, last Friday I got an invitation from Grand Indonesia Shopping Town to have dinner (break fasting) at Tairyo with other bloggers. This event is part of "Ramadhan Rhapsody" which is held by Grand Indonesia Shopping Town to embrace the Ramadhan spirit. This "Buka Bareng Blogger" was held in three different restaurant that is Tairyo, JunJan and Katsusei. And it's an honor for me to have a chance to attend the event in a really great all-you-can-eat-restaurant such as Tairyo which is the first host of the event.

I find this thing a charm to the Teppan table, I like dragons. :D

Sweet sweet melon juice

Photobucket

Our ta'jil for today : Kolak
(made out of sweet potato, bananas, with palm sugar, pandan leaves, and cinnamon broth)
For personal taste, I don't quite a fan for kolak in general, but this one quite nice although I only ate the sweet potato.. he he

First appetizer
Prawn salad
I like this salad so much. You could really taste the nut and sesame oil,and the freshness of the lemon juice mixed them all together with the iceberg lettuce, red cabbage and the prawn. Yummy! It makes my pallet ready for the next dish. A really good appetizer. 

Photobucket

Next is Prawn Cutlet
Crunchy outside moist inside.. You'll taste a really tasty prawn and cheese mixture inside and the mayo complement them all..

There's a workshop on how to get a perfect slices of salmon sashimi.. In this picture you'll see how Chef Abel butcher this big Norwegian Salmon into these juicy slices of heaven. Every part of the salmon could be use into something tasty, head, fin, skin, roe, you name it. The best part of the salmon is its belly, also called Toro in Japanese. It's because they have lots of Omega 3 which is good for your health.

This salmon sashimi that Tairyo has was the best, they're fresh and juicy. Can you see the white lining on those slices of fish? That's the one that makes the sashimi so juicy.

Now let's move on to our Teppanyaki Table, Chef Angga is going to start cooking. First, I'll let you know a little about Chef Angga. He have worked as Teppanyaki chef for about 16 years. 
He said : "I'd better be a Teppanyaki chef or I won't work at all"

As a starter, Tofu with caramelized onion, shitake mushroom and squash.

Meaty time.. Be prepare..

Mushroom Beef Roll
(thin sliced beef with enoki mushroom)
I love enoki mushroom. The beef combination with enoki is great, I just love the texture.

Photobucket

Grilled US Flank Bone
You know, when you cook meat with its bone they have a really tasty and flavorful taste, and this one has it.

Photobucket

Boiled Ox Tounge with Red Wine Sauce
Beefy yet so tender..

Photobucket

Garlic Sauce Oyster
This is the best dish so far.. I love the freshness of the oyster.. You could really taste the fresh ocean.. I love this one so much, even the chef knows that.. He gave me two of them, while the others have one only.. *grin*

Photobucket

French Lamb Chop
I'm not quite a fan of lamb, but this one taste nice and juicy.

Photobucket

Sliced High Rib Beefsteak
Thin and tasty.. :9

Photobucket

Grilled Chicken Steak with Garlic Sauce
A nice succulent chicken with a simple sauce.. Yummo!

Photobucket

Fried Rice with Garlic
In Teppanyaki, you'll eat rice at the end of the meal.. Why?  I don't know why.. It's just the way it is supposed to be.. What unique culture! 
I realized there's a different aroma when you cook freid rice with Teppan or Wok.. Teppan has a mild flavour and Wok has a strong one.. You could really taste the burned when you cook fried rice with Wok.. I like the teppan version better.. The rice could really soak up the seasoning.. And chef Angga has a twist on it, he put sliced chili in it.. Yummm!!!!!!

Photobucket

Last but not least...
Great Fishing Gold Steak
This one is so juicy.. I like this one.. 

Photobucket

In the mean time, while we rested our tummy to be ready for the dessert, there's a game which is held by Tairyo.. It's a sushi making game.. I took part in this game.. But unfortunately I don't have a picture of me while making the sushi.. Although I lose at this game, I had so much fun and get a voucher worth Rp 100.000,-! Now I know how hard it is making sushi, you have to be skillful in order to produce a perfect sushi.. 

NOW!!??!!
Dessert Time!!!!!!
Banana Flambe
This one is made from heaven.. Crispy crunchy banana with vanilla ice cream and ground cinnamon.. SUPER DUPER in LOVE with this dessert.. I could eat hundreds portion of this.. Ha ha..
