So many new places open in Central, South and North Jakarta on this Christmas, last sunday i chose Amber to spend my whole afternoon day. This one is located in Senopati area , across Cacaote. My first impression about Amber is modern classic pastry boutique, the interior design looks pretty and eye catching. Amber is a culinary concept with 3 distinctive concepts in one building by Mount Scopus Indonesia , which also managed The Harvest Patissier & Chocolatier, Negev Art Gallery & Bar, Chateau Blanc, Balboni Ristorante and many more. Let's go inside the room.

1st Floor : Pastry Boutique

1st floor is for pastry boutique with modern classic interior, you are absolutely in love with this interior. Pretty and fancy place to organize afternoon tea party with your family or friends. I try this black cookie cheese cake and strawberry mousse, i'm totally like it. These pretty little fancy cakes are so delicious. Service in Amber is perfect, they will guide you from front door to your desk , help you politely and their store manager came to our desk just to greeted us and ask some questions.

Black Cookie Cheese Cake ( IDR 40.000 )

Strawberry Mousse ( IDR 35.000 )

Macaroon ( IDR 15.000 / each )

Milk Choco. Dark Chocolate Praline, Hazelnut and Strawberry Macaroon
Pastry ( IDR 25.000 - IDR 45.000 )

Chocolate Truffle ( IDR 20.000 ) & Chocolate Pralines ( IDR 12.000 )

Amber Ice Tea ( IDR 35.000 )

2nd Floor : The Library 

When your feet step the second floor, it feels like library in your college or university with row of books and wooden wall. This library serve you for lunch or dinner. They have sky lounge too on the 3rd floor.

Surely i will come back to try another menu in Amber, both price and venue are so good. This place will be a hype pastry boutique in town near soon. 2015 NYE Party " Under The Stars " on Amber , will be held on 31th December 2014.

Meet The Chef

"Meet The Chef" is an event organized by OpenRice along with Central Park Mall and Local Taste ID. Openrice cooperate with Hog's Breath Cafe and VMAD for featuring live cooking demo. Hog's Breath CafĂ© itself is a restaurant franchise that originated from Australia, specialties menu is grilled meats, seafood, pasta and much more. Choice of meat mostly used are imported meat. Finally, Hog's Breath Cafe is opening their first store in Indonesia, located at Central Park Mall.

First, Chef Anto from Hog's Breath Cafe demonstrating how to cook Aussie Cheese Burger ( 89 K ) and Prime Ribs Steak Sandwich ( 149 K ). Hog's Breath Cafe also provides two fresh drinks, they are Mojito non-alcohol ( 40 K ) and mixed strawberry smoothies ( 38 K ). Price range for food is start from 60 K. Prime Ribs Steak Sandwich is really recommended to try, it was so delicious. Mojito is so fresh and suitable to accompany your lunch.

Second, VMAD is specifically for the vegetarian restaurant is located in Sarinah and Sunter, Jakarta.
In the second chance 'cooking demos', VMAD presents two menu choices are Hakkabakka Noodles    ( 49 K ) and Martabak Cyelon ( 29 K ). Their taste was so good , i have no idea if the vegetarian food can be tasty as it is and it's more healthier .

Jamaican Cooler is made of milk, cashew nut, vanilla ice cream and mocha syrup. The flavor of cashew nut is very unique. The second drink is Green Fantasy is made of pineapple, lime, and green vegetables. I like Green Fantasy than Jamaican Cooler, the taste is so fresh and makes you want to drink more.

Thank you OpenSnap and OpenRice for invite me to this event. Open Rice is Asia's no.1 online dining guide.
