Nomz Kitchen & Pastry – Here’s What We Love About This Sexy Casual Restaurant In Jakarta

Eclairs

A recent trip to Jakarta had us falling in love with Nomz Kitchen & Pastry, a sexy casual dining restaurant helmed by Chefs Kim Pangestu and Arnold Poernomo. Located in Grand Indo East Mall, we had numerous memorable meals at Nomz Kitchen & Pastry during our stay in the Indonesian city. We don’t even know where to begin!

Nomz Kitchen & Pastry was also the place of our choice for our first ever overseas Meet-and-Greet session, and that made it even more memorable and significant for us at Ladyironchef. We are extremely humbled by the support we got from all our Indonesian followers, and the love and enthusiasm further affirmed our choice for making Jakarta our destination to meet all you lovely people.

Apart from the fun-filled afternoon we had sampling the chefs’ new creations and catching up with our followers, we also want to share all our favourite dishes from Nomz Kitchen & Pastry. The culinary team fed us so well that we were pretty reluctant to return home. That said, for all who are headed to Jakarta or already living in Jakarta, a trip to Nomz Kitchen & Pastry is necessary.

Here are the various highlights from all the feasting sessions we had, as well as some photos from our Meet-and-Greet session:

New Weekend Set Lunches at Joël Robuchon Restaurant and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Singapore

Joel Robuchon Restaurant

Having a meal at a Joël Robuchon Restaurant is not just about the food; it is about the overall dining experience right from the moment you step in to the restaurant.

When Joël Robuchon was in Singapore back in December, we met up with him for an exclusive session to get an insight, as well as to experience the magic in the restaurant’s kitchen - the sacred ground of haute cuisine. It was an unforgettable afternoon – to interact with the humble man, and to catch glimpses of his talented team at work.

Most people have the misconception that it is expensive to dine at a Joël Robuchon’s establishment. However, that is not necessarily the case. Joël Robuchon Restaurant and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at Resorts World Sentosa have just launched its new weekend set lunches and the prices are super reasonable for the quality of food you will be getting, and the luxe dining experience.

Noodle Stories by TungLok at Orchard Central Singapore

Noodle Stories

There are plenty of options when dining out. Even more so when you are at Orchard Road – steaks, sushi, dim sum, salads and what have you. And then there is your fine dining, buffet and all the extravagant choices. But where do you go to when you are craving an honest Chinese meal that is unpretentious, satisfying and affordable?

Our recent lunch at Noodle Stories by TungLok Group gave us an answer, and has earned a spot in our ever-popular guide to Inexpensive Restaurants in Singapore. And it is by no surprise, because this new outlet at Orchard Central is well-loved by executives and shoppers in the area who always swing by when they need an easy Chinese meal.

We had a feast, and we really did not know how to pick just one favourite. The use of fresh ingredients in every dish made it such a stupendous meal, and we left with very happy tummies. Today, we share with you some highlights of our lunch, and do not be surprised if you bump into us at Noodle Stories, because we will definitely return for more yum for the tum.

Neko No Niwa: Singapore’s First Cat Cafe

Cat Cafe SIngapore

Neko no Niwa, Singapore’s first cat cafe, is officially opening today. Located at Boat Quay, the cafe is named Neko no Niwa, which means ‘cat garden’ in Japanese.

For the uninitiated, a pet cafe is a theme cafe where you pay a time-based fee to watch and play with the residing pets while you have your drink and desserts.

When we were in Seoul earlier this year, we discovered many cats and dogs cafes, and it made us wonder why no one thought of opening a similar concept in Singapore, Now there is finally a place for cat lovers to gather. Neko no Niwa has 13 resident cats, and it is charging S$12/pax for the first hour, and S$5/pax for the subsequent 1/2 hour block. Now, we hope someone will open a dog cafe in Singapore next!

Cat Cafe Neko no Niwa
54A Boat Quay, Level 2
Tel: +65 6536 5319
Mon to Fri: 11am – 10pm

nydc Christmas Dinner Special

nydc Christmas Special

One of the main problems everyone faces during the festive periods is to choose a suitable place which serves good food at reasonable prices. Most restaurants tend to jack up their prices during Christmas. And that has in turn deterred people from wining and dining during the supposed joyous occasion. But thanks to Santa we still have pocket-friendly options around, and nydc is one of them.

This Christmas, the household name has put together a Christmas menu which will run from 18 November till 31 December 2013, and for 2013′s theme, it is heavily inspired by Santa – to spread joy. nydc’s Christmas specials will definitely spoil your palates without having to break the bank! The small plates are only S$9.80, while the big plates range from S$16.80 for the Traditional Cornish Hen, to S$28.80 for a 230g Wagyu Steak Frites. A mini log cake is also available at S$6.80. With such irresistible offerings, there is really no need for second thoughts about stepping in to the comfortable diner with your loved ones to celebrate Christmas, and to create memories to conclude the year.

nydc Christmas Party

I had a Christmas party with 30 of my readers at nydc last week and we sampled 10 of the new festive dishes from nydc’s Christmas menu for 2013. It goes without saying that everyone left with very happy tummies and a night of memories to always remember.

Here are the highlights of the festive dishes that we had at nydc’s Christmas party.

Christmas Party at nydc

One of the best things that I love about the end of the year is Christmas. It is such a joyous festive season and it is about gathering with family, loved ones and friends to come together for the holiday.

It is not an easy task to choose a place for Christmas dinner, however. First, the place must have a good selection of dishes so that everyone will have something to choose from. Second, most places tend to charge a premium for their Christmas dinner menu, and it is difficult to find a place that serves good food, yet remains affordable.

If you face the same problem, then nydc should be your top pick for Christmas this year. Besides offering an attractive and affordable Christmas menu, nydc also has an impressive array of savoury food and dessert options on its ala carte menu. It is quite simply the perfect place to celebrate the homely affair with your closed ones, and to document the last of 2013 with happy memories.
