[NEW LOCATION] Bottega Ristorante at Fairgrounds SCBD Sudirman Jakarta

May 9th, 2017. You guys remember Bottega Ristorante, right? Last month, they moved to a new location. Well, I was invited to come to the new place. And I could bring friends. Yaaaay.

I loved their new venue. It’s bigger and more beautiful. Elegant with European concept. Same hospitality from those friendly people. They have outdoor and indoor area. When I stepped inside, I fell in love with their interior. Looks expensive and classy with their own way. Spacious space with open bar at one corner. It’s definitely a nice place to have lunch or dinner with colleagues or gathering with best friends.

From those 4 mocktails, my favourite was Ibiza.
Even though it consisted of melon. Yeah, I never liked melon. Hohoho.
But, the collaboration between orange, black tea and peach enhanced the flavour of Ibiza.
It's so strong, I tasted less melon flavour. Yaaaaay LOL..

My favourite: Porcini Coffee Rubbed Steak. Delicious! Tender and juicy. Super recommended!
The next favourite: Spaghetti with Pork Ragout. The pork was utterly delizioso.
Well actually they all were delicious. But, I have to pick my favourites right?
Penne Alla Vodka was also a nice dish. Creamy and delightful.
I didn't really like the steak tacos, also the chicken soup.
But only for my palate, because I think my friends thought those dishes were appetizing.
My opinion: just go there and enjoy their food. Recommended place!

Flourless Hazelnut Chocolate Cake 65k

Gluten free cake made using Hazelnut flour

This was super delicious. If they didn’t tell me, I had no idea that it’s gluten free cake. The texture was very smooth. We practically fought each other for the last piece of this cake. Next time I should get one portion only for me. LOL.

[BANDUNG] Barleu Fine Coffee and Light Meals at Cihapit Bandung

May 5th, 2017. After 2 coffee shops, it’s time for the 3rd hahaha. Actually, I heard about this one from Natasha. It’s her friend’s coffee shop. But when I arrived there, the owner was in Jakarta LOL. Oh and the place called Barleu. Small area with outdoor and indoor space. Nice one.

IMG_7308

It’s a new coffee shop. But it’s already hype. There’re a lot of people there. A lot of moms there. They were very happy there hahaha.. So I had to sit on the back area because there’s no tables at the indoor area. It’s very small, like I said before.

Lemon Tea 22k

IMG_7324

Hazelnut Latte 28k

Delicious. Not too coffee, not too chocolate. Rich texture with delightful flavour.

IMG_7323

Bala Bala (3pcs) 15k

My hubby loved it. He ate all of them LOL. Tasted so good, he said. 🙂 Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside. My complaint was it’s taking too long for them to cook those bala bala. Lucky them, it’s THAT good. If not, I think I will send them a complaint letter hahahaha..

IMG_7325 IMG_7326

Siomay (2 pcs) 20k

Another complaint for them. They forgot to prepare the siomay. And when I wanted to ask them, “Where’s my siomay?!?!?!” those 2 siomays arrived. They said sorry for the wait. Another lucky for them. The Siomays were very delicious! If I wasn’t in a hurry, I think I will order another portion.  Yes, super recommended.

Good job Barleu. We will be back for more food. Wait for us!

[BANDUNG] Sydwic at Cihapit Bandung

May 5th, 2017. Still in a passion for cafe hopping, we walked from the previous coffee shop to another. It’s only 550 meters to the next place. So yeah, we walked, through the busy highway in Bandung. And arrived at Sydwic happily because it’s a little bit hot outside. Well, good thing that we didn’t drive. They didn’t have parking space for cars in their facade. You must park by the roadside. Ok enough talking about parking lot. Let’s come inside the place.

IMG_7293

They divided into 2 areas. The indoor area, and the semi-outdoor area. I love their semi-outdoor area. Lovely spot with plants everywhere. Dominated with white colour for the walls, and green for the plants dangling all around the area. Too bad, when I arrived, it’s full with moms, couples and me-time people. So we sat at the indoor area. Next time I will come earlier. Definitely.

Lychee Ice Tea 27k

Always a dear, for sure.

IMG_7304

Cafe Latte 24k

I love it. The after taste was mind-blowing. I couldn’t stop drinking this. One of the best coffee. No sugar needed. No additional of anything. It just delicious in its own flavour.

IMG_7303

Cheese Brownies 35k additional Vanilla Ice Cream 10k

Adorable. When I first saw this on the cake rack, I instantly fell in love with the appearance. It was delicious, and even more delicious when I paired it with vanilla ice cream. Great texture with the crunchy almond and rich flavour from the cheese. Recommended!

IMG_7305 IMG_7306

It’s one of the places in Bandung that I want to be back again. Next time, I wanna try their breakfast set menu. Wait for us!
