Hi! Please tell us a bit about yourself and your day-to-day activities.
Hi there, my name is Serly, and I’m a food content creator based in Jakarta. And I’m here for the flavors, so be prepared for punchy, flavorful food that will tickle your taste buds from my page!
To kickstart my day, I head straight to the gym. This daily routine gives me more energy, focus, and optimism throughout the day, allowing me to create and share my food reviews with my followers. I visit different restaurants during the day, creating content from my experiences to share with my audience.
The rest of my day is dedicated to editing my content. It’s essential for me that every post I share is not only visually appealing but also informative and entertaining. I’m committed to my craft and work hard to provide the best content possible for my followers.
What is your favorite type of cuisine?
Definitely Japanese. Whether it’s sushi, ramen, kushiyaki, sukiyaki, katsu, or curries, I love them all. And I’ve always been a big fan of Japanese flavors too, like azuki, matcha, Goma, kinako, hojicha, and the list goes on!
What usually attracts you to visit a place to eat?
For me, it’s the food and the vibe. There’s nothing more satisfying than eating yummy food in a place where you can chit-chat for hours with your friends.
What is the most unforgettable food experience you have ever had?
Definitely, the first time that I had Sun Nong Dan in Koreatown, LA. I’ve never had a Galbi Jjim (Braised Beef Short Ribs) that good in my life! Tender & succulent ribs, in a rich sweet-savory-spicy sauce, with a generous amount of melted cheese on top. I ate half of the pot myself because it was THAT good.
Any specific dining places or cuisines you’ve wanted to try?
That new Japanese curry spot in Alam Sutera (Gogo Curry). The fact that they sell out at around 1 PM every day makes me extra curious.
What do you look for in street food?
Flavors, flavors, and flavors.
Is there any food you can eat every day without getting bored?
Fried chicken. And it has to be breaded fried chicken.
Do you have any memorable food memories?
Eating takeout from Whole Foods while having a picnic in Central Park, NY, in the summer. I would do anything to relive that moment.
Where do you usually go to hang out with friends or for special occasions with family?
There is no specific place I hang out in because my friends and I are always on the hunt for good, new restaurants every weekend.
What are your favorite local dishes, and where do you go to eat them?
Es Podeng!!! I LOVE how there are so many textures & flavors in this one dessert alone. Jelly, bread, sticky rice, avocado, coconut ice cream, condensed milk, peanuts, and chocolate sprinkles, the combination is just amazing.
Where are your top three dining places always on your favorite list?
Skye, Ikkudo Ichi, and Kungfu wok in PIK. I revisit these places a lot too!
What is your go-to comfort food, and where do you usually get them?
Chinese Claypot Rice in Kungfu Wok PIK. Super delicious and authentic. For me, there is no better clay pot rice than theirs.
What are the top three dining places you had been to in 2022?
Ironplate, Zapoli (Kemang, Jakarta) – hands down the best pizza in Jakarta, and Torasho Ramen (Singapore), their Tsukemen is to die for.
