MOREAU Chocolatier’s Café at Kemang Jakarta

March 29th, 2017. When we talk about dessert, the first thing that came into my mind was chocolate. Yup, chocolate is my favourite word. I think everything with chocolate is always delicious. So.. when they opened a chocolate cafe on early February, I was like, “Hmmm.. chocolateeeee!!!” By the way, I came to this venue with Aline, Cindy, Hans and Vania. Yes, let’s visit this one. MOREAU.

Located in Kemang area, it’s very very easy to find. It’s precisely on the roadside of Kemang Raya street. If you came from Jalan Bangka, you just go straight, and it’s on the left side of Kemang Raya. They said it used to be a restaurant called Pong Me! Well back to MOREAU. It’s not a place to do your #OOTD things. It’s not a place to do a lot of photoshoot. It’s not a beautiful cafe. It’s just a place that serve my favourite dessert, Chocolate. Actually, I’m waiting this kind of cafe since forever. When a chocolate cafe came to Tangerang area, I wished they had something like that in Jakarta. And voila, MOREAU came into my life. *dancing* It’s just a simple cafe with 2 levels. Level 1 was the kitchen and dining room. And you can also see coffee machine and 3 chocolate fountains *whoozaaaah*. Level 2 was for the smoking area. It’s not huge, but it’s pretty comfy. The black and yellow colours dominate the space. Lovely.

Moreau Flakes Chocolate 52k

Rich Belgian chocolate drink with chocolate bits of your choice (white, milk, dark.)

It’s Hans’ order. I tried a sip, and fell in love. It’s not too sweet, and the texture was very rich. Recommended for ice chocolate lovers.

Ice Tea Lychee 35k

IMG_5627

Moreau Hot Chocolate 55k

The authentic white, milk or dark Belgian chocolate served with vanilla whipped cream

This was definitely my favourite. And the art was simple but very very pretty. I saw myself when the chef/barista/chocolatier *I have no idea what to call him hahahaha* made it for me. Uuuuugh so pretty. The art, yaaaaaa. Not the chocolatier hahahahha.. It was such a delicious dark chocolate flavour. Recommended drink, for sure.

Fruity Crepe 115k (R) 85k (S)

French crepe, filled with assorted fresh fruits, drizzled with Belgian chocolate of your choice.

Based on availability of the fruits

We all love it. It’s sweet but fresh at the same time. The milk chocolate wasn’t as sweet as I thought. And it’s addicting. Lovely presentation with the pretty chocolate art. And the milk chocolate coated the strawberry, banana and kiwi. Such a perfect combination. Favourite!

IMG_5636 IMG_5637 IMG_5638

Fondant 58k

Moist chocolate cake filled with molten rich chocolate. Topped with chocolate and scoop of creamy ice cream.

I saw this chocolate cake everywhere on Instagram. So, when we finally came, we must order this one. It’a a chocolate lava with amazing texture and very beautiful chocolate art. I’m in love with their chocolate art. We chose dark chocolate, but.. I think it’s sweeter than the milk chocolate. I wonder why hmmm.. Well, maybe next time I will try it first, before I consume the other things.  But for truly chocolate lovers people, you should try this one. At least, once. Once a week? LOL!

IMG_5639 IMG_5640 IMG_5641 IMG_5642

I will be back. No ifs ands or buts. Like they always said, “Forget love. I’d rather fall in chocolate.”

HONU Poké & Matcha Bar at Kemang Jakarta

March 29th, 2017. Strolling around Kemang, Aline, Cindy and I stranded in a new place. We talked about this one quite often. Actually, last Monday when I went to Kemang area with Ivan, I saw the place, but it’s closed. *next time ya Ivan* We were coming from Cipete area, but I will tell you about it later. Then, we prepared our tummy for those delicious poké bowl. HONU.

DSCF3408

Small space with petite smoking area. We almost ran out of tables to sit. Fortunately, we got a cute space around the back area. Supposed to share the table with other people, but after we sat, they finished. So the long table was ours. Hohoho. Then it’s time to order the food. I let Aline and Cindy ordered for us. I was busy taking photos LOL.

POKE BOWLS

Choose your base: White Sushi Rice or Brown Rice

Two & Two 75k (Reg) 50k (Sml)

Salmon & tuna with creamy sauce, wakame, lettuce, carrots, tempura crunch

First bite, first love. I never thought that a poké bowl will give me such a romantic effect. LOL! Too exaggerating? Not really. You surely will feel the same when you eat this kind of poké bowl. Mixed the ingredients all together, and be prepare to fall in love with this combination. Fresh salmon and fresh tuna. Wakame, lettuce, carrots and the tempura crunch. Those ingredients will give you the crusty of love. The white sushi rice was sure as delicate as can be. Recommended!

IMG_5574 IMG_5581 IMG_5584

NOT SO POKE

Choose your base: White Sushi Rice or Brown Rice

Grilled Chicken Bowl 75k (Reg) 50k (Sml)

Grilled chicken, lettuce, carrots, cucumber, spring onion (Extra egg +5k)

This was the not so poké. Why? Because it contained chicken. Poké /poʊˈkeɪ/ is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine, and sometimes as an entree. That’s why they categorize it in NOT SO POKE. Hahaha. The grilled chicken was super duper delicious. Well-seasoned with tender and juicy texture. And the vegetables were so fresh. Added an extra egg. Too bad it’s not half-cooked, so when we tried to break the egg, the eggyolk wasn’t runny. Next time remind me to ask for the half-cooked egg. Yes! Super duper recommended!

IMG_5576 IMG_5582 IMG_5585

DRINKS

Matcha Latte 35k

Matcha with honey and milk / soy milk

Cindy told us about this drink. She was so curious about it. And it’s really good. But for me, it’s too milky. Next visit I will ask them to make it less milk. Definitely.

Our Matcha is 100% organic sourced directly from Kagoshima

IMG_5573 IMG_5575 IMG_5583

Light Matcha 25k

Free refill

Love it! Yes, always love free refill drinks. *sparkling eyes* And I prefer the taste of the matcha in this drink. Pure matcha!

Sta’s Coffee & Eatery at Scientia Residences Serpong Tangerang

March 11th, 2017. They opened the coffee shop at my sister’s apartment area. It’s very easy to find it, if you knew the address. Just go to Tower A at Scientia Residences, and look for number 17. They had those stickers in the glass door, giving direction to upstairs. Sta’s Coffee & Eatery.

IMG_4525

Confirmed that they’re the ugliest coffee shop in town, I was curious about it. So I asked them. A simple answer. They wanted customers to come and enjoy their coffee and things. Not to take picture for #OOTD or being a beautiful coffee shop. So, let them become the ugliest coffee shop in town, and please enjoy the coffee. No need to take photos etc. Cute reason, right? But still, I love their place. Dominated with blue colour, it’s very calm and comfy place to hang out with your college-mates or just having “me-time” after you sent your kids to school. Well, enjoy my simple review.

Ice Tea Darjeeling 25k

IMG_4517

Lychee Yakult 35k

A perfect combination for me because I love lychee and I love yakult. Aaaah, I remember that I have to buy yakult downstairs! *yes, I’m at mall right now* Well back to this drink. They didn’t have something to eat, that’s why we ordered so many drinks hahaha.. Well, good thing, I’m good at drinking LOL. So, for those who love lychee and yakult, you guys should order this one. Recommended. Such a thirst-quenching.

IMG_4515

Red Velvet Latte 33k

Love the colour of this red velvet hohohoho. If they asked me, I will name it: Blushing Latte. Hohoho. Please Sta’s! Please name it Blushing Latte. LOL. Tasted so good. I think it will be my favourite when I come to Sta’s next time. Smells so good with great texture. Love it!

IMG_4513

Welcome Sta’s. Keep “ugly”! LOL. You know what I mean, right? It’s ok to be the ugliest, but please always keep the good work! And another thing, I need something to eat when I’m back. Hahaha.

No. 27 Coffee at Gading Serpong Tangerang

March 11th, 2017. Another new coffee shop. Well not really new, but new for me hehehe. Since 2014 opened in Yogyakarta, it will surely be a great addition in Gading Serpong. And they used the founder’s lucky number as the name of the coffee shop. No. 27 Coffee.

IMG_4485

The red telephone box added a nice touch at this coffee shop. Overall, it’s a comfortable place. Adorable interior with friendly ambiance and cushy atmosphere. It’s quite packed when we came, but fortunately we could take a sit in the front corner. Well, let me show you around. And enjoy my simple review about this warm coffee shop.

IMG_4486 IMG_4500 IMG_4501 IMG_4488 IMG_4489 IMG_4490 IMG_4493 IMG_4491

Hot Green Tea Latte 35k

Typical green tea latte. Bittersweet. It’s been so long since I stopped drinking coffee. And I replaced it with green tea latte or chocolate or red velvet latte or taro latte. Love the texture. Mild and delicate.

IMG_4495

Ice Caramel Chocolate 42k

My hubby’s order. He’s not really into it because it’s too bitter for him. Well, the caramel wasn’t the sweet one, but a little bit bitter. But, love the texture of it. Kudos.

IMG_4496

Tiramisu Baileys 30k

When I ordered this one, I was put a really high expectation. So when I tried this, I was a little bit disappointed. I prefer more baileys, for sure. And of course, please make it sweeter. Just a little bit. Ok, I was having a full tummy, maybe next time I will try it again. Hope it’s more suitable for my palate.

Port Five Six at Gading Serpong Tangerang

March 11th, 2017. A little bit late than other foodies, finally I came to this place with my hubby. I heard about it and very curious. I heard that William Gozali (Winner of MasterChef Indonesia 3) is the man behind the gun. Port Five Six.

IMG_4461

When we arrived, it’s very hard to park our car. I asked my hubby to drop me in front of the place, while he searched for the parking space. I saw that the place was on level 2. The 1st level is occupied by another venue. And they still had construction too. So, it’s not really a nice experience at the time. But, I was so curious about the food there, I forced myself to go upstair. It’s very crowded. But, when I was in the middle of thinking whether I should move to another place of just stay, we got table. Yaaaay! It’s actually a very lovely place. For those who love to take #OOTD photos, it’s heaven, I guess. And, yes, I still curious about the name. What’s the meaning behind the name. Hope someone will give me enlightenment about it. 🙂 It’s about their address. Number 5-6. I got it.

Chashu Don 58k

Braised Pork Belly, Steamed Rice, Fried egg

We love pork. So when we saw this menu, we were so happy. At first, I sent text to Maria Karina (William Gozali’s future wife) to ask for dish recommendation. But when she answered my question, I’ve already chose the Chashu Don. So, maybe next time ya. 🙂  Now let’s talk about this chashu don. When I tried a spoonful, I saw my hubby, and said to him, “My goodness!” Then, he tried by himself, and he looked at me, and smiled widely. Well, @yennymakanmulu and @mikenontonmulu approved! Hahahaha. The pork belly was delicate and melt in your mouth. I didn’t care about the steamed rice or the fried egg. The luscious pork belly stole my heart already. Super recommended!

Cannot wait to be back again. Wait for us, Port Five Six.

Fat Noodle & Bar at Gunawarman Senopati Jakarta

March 27th, 2017. Actually, Ivan and I wanted to visit a coffee shop at Senopati area. But, “What a shock!” they closed on Monday. Then, we saw a new place just beside it. We looked at each other, and decided to swing by. Fat Noodle & Bar.

IMG_5389

When we came in, first impression: fancy!! Well, they’re using fancy cutleries. Ulalaaaaaaaa *big grin* There’re a lot of people there, but they’re not eating. They sat at the bar area. We chose to sit at the corner. Not exactly the corner, but near of it. Why? Because we wanted to take photos at the corner table LOL. By the way, they have 2 more areas. The smoking area and the VIP area, I guess. And they told us that now they served Thai cuisine, but actually they want to offer Asiatique cuisines. Ok then, let’s begin my simple review.

IMG_5390 IMG_5391 IMG_5392 IMG_5393 IMG_5394 IMG_5395 IMG_5396 IMG_5398 IMG_5397

Nua Pad See Ew 75k

fried kwetiau beef, vegetable and soy sauce

It’s good. The fried kwetiau was moist and tender and silky. The soy sauce was a little bit too sweet for me. The vegetable was fresh. It didn’t wow me, but it’s delicious enough.

IMG_5405

Fat Noodle Chicken Green Curry 75k

kwetiau with chicken green curry sauce

Now, this was the one that wow me. The kwetiau was soft, smooth and delicate. And the chicken green curry sauce was splendid. Well-seasoned with overwhelming flavour. Absolutely a keeper. Ivan and I were fighting over this dish hahahaha.. Super recommended!

IMG_5402

Corned Beef Fried Rice 75k

The fried rice was tasty with sunny side up and corned beef as the main ingredient. It’s not very very much delicious, but it’s quite perfect for hungry tummy. Generous portion with generous corned beef, and generous crackers. LOL. And yes, this was our third plate *pat pat my belly*
