Lunch at a Crime Scene (Fo' Real Though)

3:00 PM


Olivier, a Western restaurant located in Grand Indonesia has been a hit for the past month. Many people have visited the restaurant after a 20-year old woman's life was taken because cyanide was put into her coffee. What's worse was, the one who put the cyanide inside her coffee was her own friend. Now we're not 100% sure if the friend was the one who did it or not, but she is the main suspect of this whole case. She's currently being held in prison for further questioning, so all we can do now is wait and wait. 

When my mom and I arrived to meet up with my aunt and cousin, I was shocked to see that the restaurant was packed because it was a weekday. I guarantee you, half the people who were eating there were probably there because they were curious about the crime that happened in the restaurant. I was one of them.. Plus, the Vietnamese coffee that the victim drank is now a best seller, that's Indonesians for you!

Btw, the place we sat in was just two seats away from where the crime happened. Not gonna lie, it was quite scary and eery to sit down so close to where a murderer was.. 


Okay, enough of crime talk right now! Let's get on with the decor..

I fell in love instantly with the restaurant's decor. The only thing I didn't like about it was that the smoking room is inside instead of outside. So I was sweating a teeny tiny bit because I wore a long sleeved dress instead of a short sleeved one *sigh*.

The smoking room is gorgeous. I detest the smell of smoke, but while holding my breath for about a minute or so, I got to appreciate the frames on the wall that was located there. Also, how cool is that deer head?! I got to enjoy the plants hanging from the ceiling in the non-smoking room, though. It reminds me so much of a green house, lol.


Now on to the food.. 

I always say this, but I'm a creature of habit. So instead of trying out something new, I ordered Roasted Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Ratatouille. I immediately ordered this as soon as my bum planted on the seat because I saw the word Ratatouille. I watched the movie last Sunday, so I thought it was meant to be. Who else is obsessed with the movie? I seriously love the way they made the Ratatouille. Looks so calming and delicious!

As for picture number two and three, that was what my aunt and mom ordered. My mom a Quesadilla and my aunt a Smoked Salmon.

The food was average to be honest. I enjoyed my mashed potatoes very much, but the chicken was well, a chicken. I would rate it 6/10.


Onto the pastries.. 

This I would definitely rate 10/10. Okay maybe now, because I only tried one of them, lol. 

I love croissants, and they have the best ones in town! Totally gonna try out the others. I just had to take a few snaps of the pastry section because they look oh so delicious. For real though, I was tempted to buy the Danish Nutella. Next time, I will. This time, I'm just gonna drown myself in croissants. <3 

Much love, Ashley xx

  10. I was so intrigued by the story, so exciting! It's weird to think things like this happen in your everyday environment. The food looked AMAZING! I would have ordered the same I think, mash potato, chicken and ratatouille!

  22. Wow that was such an interesting crime story! I would've been exactly like you, coming out of curiosity about something so terrible that happened. I feel like it's sad but true that when really bad things happen at places like this, instead of it scaring off customers it would actually attract a bunch!

  24. That is so cool to have dined in a crime scene. Like, I would never have the courage to do so, but it's an incredible thought though! I always have a thing for detective stories (other than my go-to cheesy romance novels of course), so stuff like that really thrills me! Love your posts! You always have great stuff!! xx
