Marugame Udon, the Japanese tasty udon in Bekasi

What comes in your mind when you hear udon? 
I had no idea about udon until my foot stopped in Marugame Udon, Summarecon Mall Bekasi. Udon is a type of thick Japanese wheat noodle usually served with soup and some toppings. I was attracted with the Japanese ambiance of this restaurant that is shown by the interiors. The restaurant put the menu on the top of the cashier with the pictures of udon with various toppings on it. "Impressive!" I said.


The open kitchen concept allows us to see the process of making the food. The self service system requires us to order the food first before we sit in the restaurant. When your udon has finished served, you can pick the additional toppings like ebi tempura, chicken katsu, beef croquette, etc or you can add some spices to fulfill your taste. So, it was the place I chose to try udon for the first time. Marugame has a lot of menu options that all look good, but, I chose niku udon while my friend opted for baitan tori udon.


Niku Udon
IDR  53K

This is one of the most favorite udon in Marugame. It contains fresh udon with sukiyaki beef and green onion on the top. I really like the savory sukiyaki soup. It's light and fresh. The sukiyaki beef is tender and tasty. This is absolutely my favorite!

Tori Baitan Udon
IDR 45K

It consists of fresh udon with 3 pcs chicken meatballs. The soup is made of fresh thick chicken broth that will pamper your tongue. The meatballs texture is soft and yummy. For you who love thick chicken broth, I recommend you this one.


Beef Croquette
IDR 12K

The size of this croquette is quiet large. It consists of potato and beef. The outside texture is crunchy yet soft and yummy inside.

Ebi Tempura
IDR 15K

This is the most mainstream snack we can find in Japanese restaurant. It's like usual Ebi Tempura, and I like it.


I chose hot ocha for the drink and it can be refilled anyway. I personally love this restaurant. The price is reasonable considering the taste and the large portion of a bowl of udon. The Japanese atmosphere made me feel like I was eating udon in Japan. My first impression of udon was really nice and I would definitely come back again to Marugame :) 


Happy tummy, happy me!

Dessert time at PAUL Patisserie

So, couples months ago I went hang out at Pacific Place, Jakarta. After walked around the mall for about 30 minutes my eyes fell on PAUL as it is a new cafe (not really new actually) located outside the mall in the south lobby. PAUL is the famous patisserie from France. What most interesting from this cafe is the classic European interior.

Too bad I forgot the name of this cake. But hey, look! It's pretty cute isn't it? I was thinking "oh should I eat and spoil this cutie? It's too pretty to be eaten" But at the end I ate it cause I paid for it haha and It tasted yummmmmmy! I loved the cream between the crunchy sweet crust. It's soooo soft and creamy and it instantly melted in my mouth. And I was like "this is definitely my fav!"

Raisins cinnamon roll (if I'm not mistaken). Just like an usual cinnamon roll but I loved it as well! It's sweet but not too sweet and also the thick texture of the bread will satisfy your tummy.


I choose mineral water for the drink to neutralize the sweetness of the cakes. Overall, I quite enjoyed my dessert time there. The place, the cakes, the circumstances were made my day. But one thing is.. The price is way too pricey for me as I was a student at that time. That's all from me, have a good Friday!
