Union is one of the most popular hangouts in Jakarta. It is located in the heart of Jakarta, which is Senayan, South Jakarta. This restaurant is located inside of the luxurious mall, Plaza Senayan, particularly inside Sogo Dept. Store. I really like the style of this restaurant, even though now it is very common type of interior design you find at a new cafe or restaurant in jakarta. However, they make it really nice and classy. I fallin love with their uniform 🙂
I highly recommend this place if you visit Jakarta, but you may need to wait for 30-60 minutes if you just come without reservation. The food is not that fantastic, but you may enjoy the ambience. The must ordered one is the Red Velvet, it is really nice, not to sweet and covered with peanuts. Perfect for dessert. This cake is the one that makes this restaurant become famous. So, you have to try it 🙂

Indonesia is not only Jakarta and Bali. We have Bandung !! Bandung is a creative city, the most creative city in Indonesia 😉 In my opinion there are 4 creative cities in Indonesia, first Bandung, second Jakarta, third Jogjakarta, and fourth Bali. When you visit Bandung, you will feel the atmosphere of youth, creativity, and hospitality 🙂 (and it’s also well-known that Bandung girls are beautiful).
I am not from Bandung, but I love Bandung and I would like to introduce Bandung to every people in this world, and through internet I try to give my little contribution for Bandung. I would be really grateful if somebody from Bandung can make a blog like this using the name “Good Morning Bandung”. I will give my permission of my logo to that person, because I cannot update or post the very recent hang out place in Bandung (since I am not living in Bandung).
Ooopps I forget to review this restaurant 😛 This restaurant has been established in Bandung, and in the last recent years, they open in their branch in Jakarta also which I posted in this blog few months ago.
If you’re in Indonesia, come n visit Bandung, and you will enjoy the culinary and creativity experience there 😉 Nanny’s Pavillon Garden Jalan R.E Martadinata No. 112

The Skye is a new restaurant, bar and lounge in one of the tallest building in Jakarta. This type of restaurant is quite new in Jakarta, not like Bangkok or Singapore that already have many rooftop semi-outdoor restaurants. This is located in the centre of Jakarta, facing the most famous roundabout in Indonesia, which is Hotel Indonesia Roundabout. This place is owned by Ismaya Group, a company that has many famous cafe, restaurants, bars, and lounges in Indonesia. One of their brands has opened in Dubai, i.e. Social House.
About the food, actually nothing is really special, but I really like the appearance of their dishes, especially the T-Bone steak, which looks very big and fantastic =p~. Undoubtedly, the price here is expensive,and if you want to have a table in outdoor area facing the Jakarta’s skyscrapers, there is a minimum order, which I forget how much it is. This place is really nice for hangout, since currently it is the most popular restaurant in Jakarta 😉The Skye Menara BCA, 56th Floor

Liberica is a cafe located in a luxurious shopping mall in the city centre of Jakarta, Pacific Place. They have a nice Industrial designed interior. Firstly, I thought this is a cafe that focus in South American coffee and I definitely wrong. To be honest, if their concept is a South American coffee shop, it will be a unique cafe because it makes this cafe different than the others. I still don’t know why they sell Indonesian traditional foods here, it ruins the concept and the positioning of this cafe. By the way, they have a nice coffee 🙂
Like usual, I like to talk using many photos because photos explaining thousands words. The size of this restaurant is quite small. 1930-1950’s American style design is happening in Jakarta right now together with the industrial interior design. So, definitely they serve American dishes. This place is a nice meeting point for executives working around the CBD area after or during office hours. However, it is not a family restaurant.
