Hi ! As i promised you before, today's post is gonna be about some foods that i ate at Publik Markette ! Oh i forgot to tell you that i also had a chance to finally tried out that (not that too) famous (anymore) Red Velvet Pie and another cakes at Union Deli.
I went there with some Uni friends. We got there way past lunch time, i guess around 3 PM or so, i cant recall. We sat at the no-smoking section which is quite unfunctional because it's located beside the smoking section. We were wondering what's the difference between them. Ah forget about that. Let's talk about the food ;)
We had a difficult time choosing what to order because the menus have no pictures like at all. I guess we all are a visual persons lol. And after the waitresses come twice with not that really amusing look we decided to ordered what might sound delicious.
1. Daily Gallery Pork Belly 165K++
Actually this one belongs to Michael. Because i dont really eat pork ( ;) ) lol. This one is fried pork belly i guess, not sure if those pork are fried or grilled. The waitress said you can pick the side dish, the options are Coleslaw Salad or Hainam Rice. Well because Michael has a super big apetite, he chose rice (ofcourse). I tasted this a bit, i think it tasted like duck lol but my friends said "Wow this is a real pork! Taste definitely like pork!!". Hmm i smirked my forehead a bit and thought "Were all of you eating unreal pork or what ?? What are pork supposed to taste like ??" Then i think again, im the one who think it tastes like duck hahaha. Well idk, but Michael said the pork is too dry, the fats are supposed to melt in your mouth or have chewy texture. But i think that's okay still edible and have a great taste. The hainam rice tasted decent, nothing special about it. So i think im gonna give the 3.5/5 to this dish.
2. Jucy Lucy + Sunny Side Up 135K + 15K++
"180g Angus black burger with double cheese stuffing, bacon, & seasoned fries"
This one was mine. I ordered this after debated with my friend, Angel. We decided to order different dishes so we could try each by each. But we wanted the same dish, and sadly i dont wanna eat pork nor chicken (most of them are chicken) because i am so bored of eating chicken. And i won haha. Sorry girl, but this belongs to me :p. Well the burger itself excludes sunny side up, you can add additional toppings if you want like Bacon, Egg in any style, Sausage, Kettle Cooked Potato Chips, Mixed greens, or even Foie Grass. You can chose whether you want pork bacon or turkey bacon inside your burger, and i picked turkey bacon. Actually the patty tasted delicious but i dont think it was great. Idk about you, but it reminds me of Mcdonald's Chesse Burger Patty. I would still pick The Good's Dinner's Coffee Rubbed Burger if its for the winner. The fries are soft in the center, tasted okay but that is not a kind of texture i expected from this fries. I like crispy fries like what Fish n Cos have. So im gonna give 3/5.
3. Linguine Aglio Olio 115K++
This one was Okta's. i did try a bit. It tasted good but not great, maybe because she didnt squeeze the lemon on the pasta. So i think it lost one strong element from the pasta. I always love freshly squeeze lemon on pasta. It helps awaken all the ingredients inside the pasta and makes the pasta even "wow". But i think it gets enough savory flavor from the anchovies while i couldnt really taste the Grana Padana. Oh anyway i didnt try the tiger shrimp because it only has 4 pcs i didnt have the heart since she looks like she loves shrimp and she hadn't had anything all day. So yeah hahaha . 3.5/5 for this pasta.
4. Reuben Pastrami Brisket 150K++
This one belonged to Angel. I must say we all love the toasts, it's soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, and also has enough buttery flavor. In my opinion, you dont have to add the thousand island anymore since the flavor would be too creamy and too savory. So i think all the pastrami itself is enough to eat without have to add anything, (well except chilli sauce) otherwise you will find it too exaggerated. It served along with the potato chips. At first i wouldnt mind if Angel wanted to exchange the chips with my fries but she said she mind haha so i just took few pieces of it and glad i didnt exchange them. Actually i like the crispiness it has but i don't like the bitterness i tasted in the end. So 3/5 for this pastrami.
6. The Green Supereme 45K++
This smoothie contained baby spinach, kiwi, and mango. Blended with yoghurt and ice cubes. It has generous amount of diced kiwi. This drink is so relaxing and refreshing. I was so thristy before but got freshen again because of this super smoothie ! It deserves 4/5 !
7. Mango Blush 45K++
Blended yoghurt, ice cubes, mango, passion fruit and banana served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I dont think they blend the passion fruit, because i could actually chewed passion fruits when i siped it. So maybe they just stir a good amount of passion fruit to the smoothie. I love passion fruit but dont really like it to eat it directly. I'd choose to blend or drink the juices or concentrate or whatever it is as long as i dont have to chew it. I always feel like eat grapeseeds everytime i eat a whole passion fruit. But this smoothie is as refreshing as The Green Supreme one. Not really sweet so i think it also deserves a 4/5.
But im having a little issue with the waitress that served us. She was not nice, barely even smile and when she smiled, she gave us the forced smile. We even had to ask 3 times for the bill. So i think i'd give 2.5/5 for the service.
We were strolling around the mall and went accross to Plaza Indonesia. We were just killing time since we were waiting for 3in1 to over. We were walking and walking until i couldnt feel my feet and my boot sole almost tear apart. Luckily i already had a feeling about it and i brought my lovely Flip flops with me. So i changed it and we went to Union Deli to eat some sweets. The queue was quite long, i think we waited around 30mins more or so. And finally got our table. The four of us decided to ordered 3 kind of cakes because you know how big Union cakes are. We glad that the waiters were so kind and nice. Compared to the previous restaurant we went, this place got 4/5 for the service.
Closer look ? ;)
1. Red Velvet Pie 55K++
I must say i loveeeee love this pie way more than its cake !! Not too sweet not too creamy not too big. Its just perfect! I love how crunchy the crust is and how they put the right amount of cream cheese and everything. Ohh just perfect ! So i give 5/5 !
2. Nastar Crumble Cake
Not really a fan of Nastar but it had always took my attention. Just curious how would it taste if it turns into cakes. I thought the flavor would be too sweet and gross but turned out it amazed me. I feel the cake is so moist and fluffy (oh they always are) and the pinapple jam is not sweet, idk if its a good thing or not but for me its great since im a sweettooth but cant really stand too sweet dessert. And not to mention whatever the cream they put inside the cake.was.super.awesome. (And again its not sweet and not gross like the other unsweetened creams). 4 thumbs up for this cake equals to 4/5
3. Cheese Cake
I dont really like this cake but it also tastes amazing. The cheese and cream cheese are not overwhelming and not too mention the fluffy and moist cake is so so great. Nothing's special about this cake but still this is a great cake so i give 4/5
4. Earl Grey Tea 30K++
As always i always order Hot Tea to accompany me to eat these sweettooth. Because it neutralized the sweet that sometimes displeasing to the tongue. And you know Earl Grey has been my favorite since few years ago. I couldnt find any nicer tea to accompany me with. Asked the waiter to bring me some ice cubes because i was so thristy and needed something fresh but ended up drank all the hot tea and chewed the melted ice cubes lol
So i guess all the food i had were great. Dont really pleased with the service i got at Publik Markette but maybe would come back to try another menus.
Anyway, this is what i wore that day. I dont know whata gotten into me but im currently loving monochrome colors. I dont usually like wearing black or white but im currently like it now. I now love to dress up all black or all white. Dont ask me why because i just dont know.

Oh anyway afrer Eid Mubarak this year i've made up my resolution that i would wear less sexy clothes more appropriate clothes. Well i dont know, i just started with maybe if i wear shorts or mini skirts i would wear long sleeves top or something with outwear. And if i wear a top that shows some skin, i would wear trousers, jeans, long skirt or whatever it is as long as it's not sexy. Well i dont know if it will succeed or not but hey at least i tried, right ? Lol
Bonus some selfies from me and friends LOL
Spot the chubby me ?
Sorry for the bad quality pictures ! >.<
