My weekend meals started with baso … (can’t remember the name, but it’s some Chinese name, like akau, or asiau, or something like that), it’s in Mangga Besar. We were starving and my brother wanted us to taste this baso that was supposed to be better than Afung. It was actually, I had fishball with beef slices in the soup, which was really nice that I wondered if maybe it wasn’t beef but pork.. plus I had bihun to go with the baso, lots of bihun.. It was all good til the end of the meal.. After we paid and head for the car, I started feeling a headache, but said nothing yet. Once I got in the car though, I just said it, “I think I got poisoned by the baso”. And.. apparently everyone felt the same thing.. “Maybe it had too much MSG,” somebody in the car said. Well… no wonder it tasted so good.. So we got the Chinese Restaurant Syndrome, except we didn’t even go to a restaurant, it was just some baso.. Please deh Mr (akiaw, asiauw?) , next time u cook, try not to poison your customers.. I’m sure ur baso taste just fine without too much MSG…

Sooo.. the day after that, after a long trip to my cousin’s in Tangerang, me, Ted (my boyfriend), and Iman (my brother) wanted to have some dinner and my brother asked me what I wanted to have (haha, another dinner already?) With the MSG and headache still clear in my head, I said I wanted something nice, like steak.. And so I did.. We went to MU Restaurant and Bar, at Sarinah, a very nice place I must stay.. I like the atmosphere there, they have live music, huge screens everywhere for customers to watch soccer games, plus the food was quite nice even though it was pricey.. I had tenderloin steak that tasted just right even without the sauce.. And for dessert, we had a chocolate cake (the one with melted chocolate inside and ice cream on the side..). It was good, but I thought the orange taste in the cake kinda ruined the chocolate and vanilla combination.. Still, I’d give the restaurant 4/5 rating..

And.. my last dinner for last weekend was.. ramen something, at Beppu, EX. As always, I was starving.. I spent the whole day at home and it gave me a bad headache (I was never much of a home person) and I had only popmie, oh and some rice and corned beef, hehe.. Well the point is, I was starving, and it was the first restaurant we saw, and my brother likes it, so we went there.. I ordered a spicy ramen, with beef and mushroom in it, can’t remember the name.. the soup was really good, it tasted like miso soup with added chilli.. (I don’t know, do all ramens taste like that?) but the rest wasn’t that special.. Oh and for dessert, I had chocolate swirl cheesecake at Coffe Bean.. The taste was actually good, but I didn’t like the texture.. It wasn’t soft enough for a cheesecake, and it didn’t have the crumbles at the bottom, which is normally one of the things that I look for in a cheesecake..

Well that’s the end of my weekend, and overall, I’d say it was another unhealthy and fattening weekend..! Haha.. So what’s yours like?
