Ronde Rungkut Mapan Ny. Tiwan

When Ronde meets Tangyuan

Angsle - Ronde Ny Tiwan (Surabaya)
Biasanya di seputar Manyar Kertoarjo dan Kertajaya ada beberapa penjaja ronde yang cukup populer, keduanya juga sempat jadi langganan saya beberapa saat. Rasanya sih lumayan, popularitasnya lebih karena lokasinya yang strategis dibanding citarasanya. Ternyata ada lagi Ronde di daerah Timur yang lebih cocok untuk selera saya, Ronde Ny Tiwan.


Around the Manyar Kertoarjo and Kertajaya street there are several street vendor selling Ronde.
Those vendor had a decent Ronde, but nothing special taste-wise, it's popularity mainly due to it's convenient location. Now I've recently found one Ronde seller that's more to my liking, Ronde Ny Tiwan.


If you're wondering what is ronde, here's a short description from Wikipedia :
  • Ronde (wedhang ronde): a hot Javanese dessert containing glutinous rice balls stuffed with peanut paste, floating in a hot and sweet ginger and lemongrass tea. Influence by the Chinese sweet dumpling tangyuan.

How I Lost almost 40 Kg - Foodgrapher Diet



Me with my architect colleague, Cilda (I'm the slightly bigger one)

Minggu lalu saya sempat ngomong ke teman FB kalau saya pernah 100kg. Lalu saya tag teman itu ke foto di bawah yang sebelah kanan. Selang seminggu, ternyata banyak yang memberi like dan bertanya cara dietnya. Berhubung berkali-kali ditanya hal sama, saya akhirnya memutuskan untuk menulis artikel di blog ini tentang cara diet yang saya lakukan.


Last week I mention to a friend about me being over 100kg at one time. I tagged her in a post and then in the course of a week I got like a few dozen likes and questions about my diet method
So rather than repeating myself over and over again, I decided to write a blog post about it. Here it goes

Porong Wei - Chinese Restaurant

The Famous Ote-Ote

Ote-Ote Porong Wei

Porong Wei, salah satu destinasi wisata favorit saya saat perjalanan ke luar kota adalah saat bisa mampir ke Ote-ote Porong di jalan tol Gempol. Post kali ini bakal banyak nostalgia karena memang histori resto satu ini sudah cukup lama.
Dulu sempat kangen berat dengan ote-ote ini saat krisis lumpur Lapindo, karena jalan tol gempol menjadi jarang dilalui lagi sejak ada jalan alternatif.
Untungnya tidak berapa lama setelahnya bermunculan gerai Porong Wei di Surabaya dan Malang.


Back when I was a child, one of the highlight of going out of town for me was having the chance to buy this famous Ote-Ote in the Gempol Highway.
Too bad there were the infamous Lapindo incident by Bakrie's group that led to the demise of Gempol Highway and suronding Porong area.
Thankfully the Porong Wei group didn't just sit by idly, they create opportunity from this crisis by opening up plenty of branches in Surabaya and then Malang.

The Mulia Hotel [Bali]

Dining in The Mulia Hotel

Foie Gras Creme Brulee


Mulai Agustus ini di foodgrapher akan ditambah satu direktori lagi tentang wedding, yang utamanya akan membahas tentang pesta pernikahan dan pernak perniknya.
Sudah ada beberapa post tentang tema ini, bisa dilihat di Link ini. Tapi untuk post pertama di label baru, saya memutuskan untuk mengulas Hotel Mulia , Bali.
Pernikahan di Bali biasanya cukup berbeda jauh dari Surabaya yang meriah, di sini pestanya dihadiri undangan terbatas, dan suasananya akrab serta santai.


Hi folks, starting this August, I'll be adding a new label / directory on this blog, and it's all about Weddings.
Hotel Mulia is one of the first wedding venue I'll be posting about.
This time it's a bit offbeat kind of banquet, far from teh glamour and glitz of big Surabaya wedding. Small, intimate and casual party, it's really my favorite kind of wedding banquet.
