An Ordinary Saturday : Makan Mie Aceh di Resto Meutia Benhil

Hi guys! How's your weekend? Well, I had a relaxing ordinary Saturday. I was meant to go to a book launching on 2 pm, but then I couldn't go there because of an electricity trouble we had in the morning in our house. Alhamdulillah, my hubby fixed it by noon.

Since I needed to shop for new scarves, we went to fX Sudirman on 3 pm. Now I love going to fX because there are several muslim wear stores at this mall; MUSE 101, Pick 'n Choose, la moie and some other stores. Each of them has famous muslim clothing brands we know on the Internet. 

Oh I just love the idea that we, the women who wear hijab, can have a one-stop-shopping point that enable us to find many choices of muslim clothings in one place. And in addition, it's always better to try on the clothes you see on the internet rather than predict whether the clothes you see on model will perfectly fit on your body shape or not and whether you like the fabric and the color of it or not.

For example, yesterday I needed to find a particular dusty pink scarf, and I could search for the right 'dusty pink' color I wanted in several muslim clothing stores here. I went to a store on the third floor and when I didn't find the scarf I wanted, I could straightly go to other stores in another floor. How convenient! And I'm so happy that I found the right dusty pink scarf :).

In the evening, we had dinner at Meutia restaurant, in Jl. Bendungan Hilir (Benhil). I was craving for Mie Aceh since yesterday I saw my Hubby's friend shared the picture of his Mie Aceh lunch in social media. 

The picture reminds me of how I craved for it during my pregnancy on 2010. We used to live at Jl. Setiabudi 1, still in the Sudirman Area, and so my Hubby bought me Mie Aceh from this particular restaurant.

Meutia, an Aceh restaurant at Jl. Benhil.

According to my opinion, even though Mie Aceh at Meutia is pretty famous, it only tastes good, but not really good. When I was in college my friends and I used to eat mie Aceh at some Aceh restaurant in Buah Batu, Bandung, and it was really good! But oh well, that's what I thought according to my taste only ;).

The wall inside. Full of pictures from Aceh.

The Spicy Mie Aceh. 

And Teh Tarek. It's a little bit too sweet for me,
but I love it because it has the scent of cinnamon.
Do you see that long stick beside the straw?
Well, it's not chocolate. It's cinnamon.
So that's my ordinary Saturday. How's yours? Have a nice weekend everyone! :)
