May 8th, 2017. Still in Gandaria City, after a nice lunch with my brother, I visited a new place. It’s their 8th day since opening. di bawah tangga. I heard about it from my brother. Well, since he worked very near Gandaria City – at Gandaria 8 Office Tower to be precise – he must know about new places there.
“I shall open a new coffee shop in Gandaria City Mall in April. It has the same concept with Kopi Kecil, called Di Bawah Tangga because it placed right under a stair. It is also small only 40sqm and we also serving Indonesian snacks,” says Fernandez. “My plan is to establish my own brand, Lenyö. This brand will bring “humble and affordable” coffee shops to many different places with different names, but all have the same concept. The first one art is Kopi Kecil and Di Bawah Tangga and many more. Let’s hope!”
Yes, you’re right. It’s Nino Fernandez. He’s the man behind the coffee shop. It’s called Di Bawah Tangga because it’s literally under a stair or escalator. It’s located on North Lobby just before you enter the mall. It’s a small coffee shop. On the order of 6 round tables and 2 nice corner areas on the each side of it. It’s heaven for smokers, of course. Well, wait no more, please enjoy my simple review.
Kopi Susu Panas Kampung 19k
I chose the Kampung because it less acid than the Kota. Well, I sipped and it’s bitter, but not acid. So yeah it’s good for my stomach. If you want for sweeter taste, you can ask them for additional sugar. By the way, I love their take-away cup. It’s really cute. Those take-away-cup lovers.. hurry. Grab it for your collections. LOL.
Es Kopi Susu Kampung 19k
Nino said to me that he’s inspired by Kopi Tuku. He also talked and discussed to the owner of Tuku for some opinions. Well, everybody knows Tuku, right? It’s really a trend-setter, I guess. So, Nino created this Es Kopi Susu Kampung. And I loooooooooooooove it so much. Well, I won’t comparing too much. But, when I want to drink delicious coffee, I will ask my brother to bring it home for me.
Lemper Ayam 7k and Pastel 5k
Simple snacks but the effect was dabomb. I ate those with hubby at home. Yes, I asked them to take away those snacks. And my hubby said, “Wow, really good. Where did you buy it?” And I replied, “At di bawah tangga coffee shop.” He was surprised, “Wow, coffee shop, and they’re selling Indonesian snack? Cool!” Yeah, we usually found pastry like croissant, danish, etc at other coffee shops. But this one was very particular. Lemper Ayam and Pastel. And they were very very delicious. Trust me.
Congratulations Nino. Please give us more coffee shops like this. Because, di bawah tangga is now literally di hatiku. #eaaaa
