CULINARY: Union Deli

I hope it isn’t too late to review this happening cafe in the town. Yes, Union Deli opened about a couple months ago but I visited it yesterday. So how was the deli version of Union?

Union Deli doesn’t like the main resto, they only serves several menu of Union like sandwich, bakery, cakes, and dessert. Located in Central Grand Indonesia East Mall, they hasn’t spacious are but the ambience of Union feel strong in Union Deli. Clean, elegant, and the service was excellent too.

What I ate?

  • Red Velvet Pie (50 K)

This is the most ordered menu! The famous Union’s Red Velvet transform to the pie. The portion was huge. Perfect combination of crunchy red velvet crumble and moist cream cheese make this pie has a unique taste yet so delicious. 

  • Red Velvet Sundae (50 K)

This is a transformation of Red Velvet too. The combination of vanilla ice cream and cruncy red velvet crumble was heaven! Delicious too.

  • Union Southern Ice Tea (35 K)

Too bad I was forget to take the picture of Union Southern Ice Tea. It consists of black tea with caramel soda. Not too sweet as my liking yet refreshing.

It was very worthed visit to Union Deli although I have to wait about 30 minutes before I get a seat. Great food, warm ambience, and excellent service will make me revisit soon.

CULINARY: Zomato Foodie Meet Up at HaloNiko!

I know there is a Greek restaurant in Warung Buncit when I worked there, but I don’t know where it exactly located. Thank you to Zomato invited me to Zomato Foodie Meet Up at HaloNiko!. HaloNiko! is a hidden gem at Warung Buncit, located behind Ace Hardware building makes me little bit hard to find this restaurant.

HaloNiko! is a restaurant serves fusion food of Greek-Javanese. The owner is a couple from Greek and Javanese, they are Niko and Mbak Kika. Mbak Kika told us this restaurant called HaloNiko! because they want everyone who come to HaloNiko! became friend to Niko and feel HaloNiko! is their home. HaloNiko! not very spacious but very comfy and homey. Mbak Kika decorated HaloNiko! every detail by herself with unique ornament. Niko served the food by himself too, he didn’t use MSG and plant the ingredients by himself. Not forget to mention, both of them are humble and nice. Great.
