Kelihatan enak, tapi ouwh aku ga suka makan bebek -.- 
It looks delicious but i don't like duck's meat.
BEEF RIBS CHILLI BASIL
Ini terdiri dari daging sapi dan beras merah, yang mana berasnya rada keras2 gitu.
It's beef's meat and brown rice, and the brown rice is a bit hard to chew, though.
Yang ini ngga tau apa namanya (sedikit blur yah :| ).
Nah, selesai makan kita bisa pilih dessert yang disediakan di dekat pintu masuk. Ada banyak banget dessert nya, mulai dari buah2an, kue2, es kacang merah, dan lain2 sayangnya lupa foto. Yang paling kusuka dessertnya, enak dan segar.
