Bottlenose Coffee, Burgushi & Eatlah at PHX Grogol Jakarta

March 23rd, 2017. A rainy day. But a very beautiful day because I planned to hang out with my lil sis since morning. We went to noodle place, then a new coffee shop, and finally reach PHX at Grogol area. We tried 3 different outlets.


PHX. I still didn’t get it why PHX. I think it’s because the first place was in Permata Hijau. And the X represented the number of their outlets. But I still waited for their answer. I will keep it up-to-date here. I love how they decorate the place. Colourful chairs. And it looked clean enough to me.

First. Bottlenose Coffee.


A small coffee shop in the gigantic food container. I thought it’s quite big. Turned out, you can put it in the petite category. When I was there with my sis, the place was quite crowded with people inside. And I think there’re more than 10 persons in the barista’s area. Maybe they wanted to open another outlet, so they needed to train more baristas. I think so. Hahaha. Well, not my business, then. And I still don’t know why they named it Bottlenose. I sent DM to them, and still haven’t got the reply. I will update you later. 🙂

Flatwhite 32k

I heard that they’re using Common Grounds beans. So, it’s good, for sure. I’m not a coffee expert. I just knew what I want in my coffee. 🙂


Ice Lychee Tea 22k


Coffee Cinnamon 25k

When we came, it’s the prettiest thing there. So, I ordered this one. But turned out, it’s not as good as the appearance. The texture was like a-day-before pastry. Not fresh from the oven. Well, my bad. Maybe I should try another dish when I come back there again.

Ocha 5k


Fries 15k


Beef Wakame 35k

Beef patty, melted cheese, chuka wakame, onion ring, teriyaki mayo.

Love it. The beef patty was tender and juicy. Delicious melted cheese. Chuka wakame? No complaint. And love the texture of the bun. @yennymakanmulu approved! LOL.


Tuna Aburi 35k

Tuna Aburi dipped with eel sauce, kyuri, enoki, spicy mayo.

A little bit spicy, so I prefer not using the spicy mayo. It’s also delicious but I prefer the beef wakame. The tuna was very fresh. A great combination between tuna aburi and enoki.

Third. Eatlah.


Eatlat wasn’t a fancy restaurant or exclusive outlet. It’s just a simple outlet with one signature dish. Kudos for the founders: Charina Prinandita, Riesky Vernandes and Michael Chrisyanto for making one of the best salted egg chicken *for me* And funny thing, they name their outlets differently. There’re Eatlah Chickago, Eatlah Mielan, Eatlah Tokyolk and Eatlah New Fork. Cool! Cannot wait for another Eatlah coming!

served on a bed of hot rice and sunny side up

It’s soooooo good! I think this was the best salted egg chicken rice! The chicken was very tender and well-seasoned. OMG! I wanna eat my own picture hahahahaha..

Well, I hope they will open another PHX near my place. Pray hard!


SANA Coffee at SANA House Panglima Polim Jakarta

April 5th, 2017. I heard about this place 2 weeks ago. And I had a chance today to visit the place. So, Cindy and I went to the venue after Darmawangsa area. It’s not far from there. We took online car and only 7k to go there from the previous place. *dancing happy happy* SANA Coffee.


Located in the same area with SANA Studio, SANA Coffee share the place with another merchant. It’s a small space, with outdoor area. Simple one. I love their outdoor. Greenery plants all over the place. Small but comfortable. When we came, there’re a lot of online food drivers waiting for the delivery orders. And we could hear the people exercising from next door. *and 1.. and 2.. and 3..*

Hot Kopi Susu SANA 20k

We got information that they’re selling coffee from another brand, and of course we compared with the brand. And it’s a little bit different. It’s more milky. It’s Cindy’s order. So I only tried a sip.


Ice Kopi Susu SANA 20k

I ordered the ice coffee. And it’s also different. More milky. Same texture but different flavour. But it’s fine. I still could enjoy it. But I drank itu only half glass. I will drink another half glass when I get home. Too bad, I left it on my last venue LOL. I totally forgot to bring it home hahahahaha..


Brownies Nutella 15k

I love the brownies nutella. It’s gooey, moist, tender, and delicious. Too bad, it’s too small! And I had to share it with Cindy OMG! Please somebody send me this brownies nutella hahaha.. love it.


I think I will be back at SANA again, since it’s a really nice place. Maybe I will try the other merchant next to it. Hmmm.. maybe..

Maoki Coffee & Food at Darmawangsa Square Jakarta

April 5th, 2017. Today I planned to go to a new place that open their latest outlet in PIM. So, when I asked Cindy to come with me, she agreed happily hahaha. Then we planned everything the night before. Of course we planned in front of Aline, since she cannot come. We wanted to include her in our food journey without her *we want to make her jealous for sure LOL* I’m joking Lin!! *big grin* Well, I presented to you. Maoki Coffee & Food.


A small place with comfortable seats. It’s not hard to find the place, since it’s inside Darmawangsa Square, on the Ground Floor, and inside Barber Club. But you can come from outside. It’s near entrance gate of Darmawangsa Square. They have outdoor area for smoking too. Just two tables. When I came, there’s no other customers. Then after Cindy came, some people came too. Fortunately, we’ve already took photos. Hihihi. By the way, Mao Ki means “Do you want it?” in Bugis. The expression is used to offer something to eat or drink during mealtime. It’s very cute. 🙂

Mao Kopi? 24k

Cindy ordered the coffee. I tasted a sip. I think it’s quite good. Their speciality is palm sugar. They used it for their drinks. So, the coffee was sweet. Perfect for me since I didn’t really like bitter coffee. Definitely a keeper.


Mao Milo? 28k

When I ordered this one, we laughed. Cindy said, “Azka order Milo sometimes.” Yeah, I’m like a child, right? Hahahaha. Actually, I love Milo since I was a kid. Until now. And it’s good. It’s always good to drink Milo. Splendid flavour with rich texture of the milk. Hmm.. Ice Milo.. refreshing!

Croque Madame 59k

Grilled smoked beef and cheese sandwich topped with gratinated mornay sauce, cheese, and egg. served with lightly dressed mix green

At first, we wanted to try another dish. It’s chef recommendation. I forgot the name. But, when I saw the croque madame at the menu, I wanted to try their croque madame. Fortunately, Cindy agreed. So we ordered croque madame. Perfect sunny side up. Ulalaaaaa. Love the texture of the smoked beef. I only had one complaint. It tasted too salty. Hope they will make improvement of it.

IMG_5818 IMG_5819 IMG_5820

Now I know where to go when I’m in Darmawangsa area. Definitely will be back soon. I wanna try their another dishes.
