EATEN:

LIN Artisan Ice Cream/I Scream Ice Cream (Jakarta) Different with the one in Bandung, LIN is the first liquid nitrogen ice cream in Indonesia. They only have 1 outlet which is in Kemang, South Jakarta. With cozy interior, LIN serves choices of unique taste of the ice cream, that can be served with waffle, cone, or just with the cup. They also have snacks and selections of coffee. So far, the Ultimate Chocolate with Choco Chips is the best. I just tried 2 out of 12, so I’m still looking forward to try the other flavour of ice cream.

Tonkichi Tonkatsu (Singapore, Hong Kong) Here you can have the authentic japanese tonkatsu, which is very delicious. I recommend Tonkatsu Set, served with a bowl of rice and fresh salad. There is also sesame you can grind by yourself to be eaten with the pork.

EATEN:

Fish n Co (World Wide) It’s always fun to have fish as your dish. Fish n Co gives different touch on their specialties which is the ’Fish n Chips around the world’ menu. They also have the baked, grilled, and the poached one. Their salad  is very wonderful, and the platters are sooo good. Every single menu tastes good, but I like The Best Fish n Chips in Town and Wild Mushroom Spaghetti the most for the main dish. Some drinks are bottomless refill, they say: Drink like a fish.In Indonesia, there is also the ‘seafood shack’ outlet in Grand Indonesia which serves smaller portions with lower price.Try them yourself and get hooked!
