Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory – PIK

Kali ini aku mau review tentang resto yang dulu sempet happening. Sekarang sepertinya juga masih sih, soalnya kalo kebetulan lewat situ, antriannya masih panjang. Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory, ini ayamnya Korean style gitu, mirip kayak chimaek (chicken maekju – chicken with beer) kalo di Korea. Cuma rada fusion, ada yang dicampur sama pasta, sama keju. Dulu waktu ke Korea, pernah nyobain Chimaek di sana, dan berasa kalo ayam goreng ala korea tuh enak banget, juicy, dibumbui dengan tepat terus ditemani sama banchan khas korea (kimchi lobak tapi yang nggak spicy) jadi makan gorengannya banyak tetep nggak enek dan nggak berasa oily terus ditemenin beer (ini optional sih) enak banget. Jadi waktu tau ada resto yang mengusung Korean chicken style, jadi mau nyobain banget.

So, sepulang kerja, Lil Sis, Miss pepz, and Incezz pergi ke PIK buat nyobain chir chir ini. Miss Pepz dan Dek Cantikz sih sebenernya udah pernah nyobain, dulu aku nggak bisa ikut soalnya lagi atit, dan menurut mereka sih enak banget, beuhhh jadi tambah pengen nyobain kan… Jadi sesampainya di sana, udah hampir jam 7 gitu. Dan ternyata masuk waiting list , dan antriannya lumayan lama. Untung ada kursi kursi unyu di depan jadi bisa duduk duduk sambil ngeliatin mobil yang lewat dari tadi itu itu aja, supir supir pada nyariin parkir kayaknya, secara parkir di PIK susahnya minta ampun, kita perginya waktu malam Sabtu lagi.

So, Chir Chir ini lokasinya di PIK(Pantai Indah Kapuk), bagi anak gaoel Jakarta pasti pada tau PIK itu dimana, Chir Chir ini sendiri lokasinya di Ruko Garden House, di sebelahnya Seorae. Nah, sambil nunggu giliran, kita udah lihat lihat menu dulu dan milih mau makan yang mana. Karena emang lagi rame, jadi masnya suruh pesen dulu, biar nanti kao udah dapet tempet duduk, nggak lama nunggu makanannya keluar. Kita udah mutusin mau pesen Garlicky Tender, ini menu favorit Miss Pepz, Ayam goreng boneless ditaburi fried garlic. Terus 1 menu lagi rencananya mau cobain yang roasted, but apa daya, ternyata udah sold out, kata masnya sih yg roasted biasanya terbatas, jadi cepet habis, kalo mau telepon dulu biar disisakan. So, akhirnya atas saran masnya kami pun memesan Nest Snow ini salah satu menu fusionnya, jadi ayam goreng, pake saus keju manis gitu sama ada whipped cream nya. Penampakan di menunya sih lumayan kece. Continue reading

AUTUMN IN KOREA – DAY 7 (SEOUL) – Changdeokgung, Gwanjgang Market, Namsan Tower

I guess some of you want to know more about my trip in Korea, so with all of my will I try to write this post diligently when office break in Friday. It’s long break because of Friday Prayer. Well, from Jongmyo Shrine we went to Changdeokgung Palace. Changdeokgung Palace was the second royal villa built following the construction of Gyeongbukgung Palace in 1405. It was the principal palace for many kings of the Joseon Dynasty, and is the most well-preserved of the five remaining royal Joseon palaces. The palace grounds are comprised of a public palace area, a royal family residence building, and the rear garden. Changdeokgung Palace was recognized as a World Cultural Heritage site by the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Committee in December of 1997. In Changdeokgung Palce there is a Secret Garden or Huwon. Huwon is the best place for the King and royal family to take a rest from political issues. It’s like place for relaxation, meditation, vacation for them.

The Admission Fee to Changdeokgung is 3000 KRW and for Huwon is 5000 KRW. So if you want to visit both place you must pay 8000 KRW. But if you buy Integrated ticket for 10000 KRW, you will get ticket for Jongmyo Shrine and 4 palaces include Huwon. So better buy Integrated ticket I think. But to enter Huwon, we must follow the tour , we can not enter as we like. There are some session in a days, one session is limited to 100 person. We arrived late there, so no more session for that day, we cannot enter the Huwon, we just see the entrance. *sob *sob
