Cupten Cafe X La Baia Gelato at The Icon Business Park BSD Tangerang

June 28th, 2017. When I visited Cupten Cafe, I saw a familiar face. She called me, “Ci Yenny?” I froze. Blank. “It’s me. Steffi.” And the memory came one by one. Hahahaha.. I just remember that she invited me 3 months ago to visit this place. And finally today I came to the place, without realizing that it’s the one that I must visit. LOL.

Cupten collaborated with La Baia Gelato. What a nice partnership, right? We can enjoy coffee with gelato. Cupten and La Baia occupied a 2 levels building at The Icon Business Park. The first level is very lovely with pretty ambiance. The second level is gorgeous with comfortable corner for doing #OOTD. They also have an outdoor area. By the way, I was curious about their name. I asked the owner what’s the meaning of it. She said, “CupTen means Cup and Ten. Cup of Coffee. Ten for the value. Ten is the highest point for value. So it means, we want to give the greatest (number ten) coffee for our customers.” Wow, what a lovely gesture, right?

Second Level

Coming to the second level, I felt that it’s more comfortable than the first level. It’s bigger with more tables. What a nice place to work or just chit chat with friends.

I really love how they decorated the place with cute displays and beautiful murals. They did it themselves. It felt so homey. I think it’s one of most beautiful cafes in BSD. And she’s very creative with the cups and the coasters.

Caramel Macchiato 38k

Love it! Love the art, love the flavour, love the texture. Love everything about it. As usual I asked for less coffee. The barista asked me, “So, is the coffee ok for you?” I said, “Just look at my empty glass.” And they all cheered happily, “Yaaaay!”

Blue Sunset 30k

A great combination of tea, blue curacao, mango, lemon, and pineapple slices. Beautiful 3-layers drink. Refreshing and addictive. I will order it again next time. Recommended!

IMG_0763 IMG_0762

Fruit Paradise 25k

A nice complimentary from the owner. OMG! It’s fruity and refreshing. Consists of dry berries, apple, hibiscus, and rose hibiscus. Splendid way to feel good and stay pretty. *giggling*

IMG_0776 IMG_0782

Gourmet Gelato Regular 2 scoops 38k

La Baia Gelato for the gourmet gelato. I chose Mango flavour, and hubby chose Ferrero Rocher flavour. Amazing combination. The freshness of mango flavour mixed the sweetness of ferrero rocher flavour. It’s like our marriage relationship. Always fresh and sweet. LOL. But true, the mango flavour tasted perfectly fantastic. And the ferrero rocher was crunchy-creamy-choco-nutty. Super duper recommended!

Congratulations Cupten Cafe and La Baia Gelato. Thank you for the complimentary! Inform us when your food is ready. We will come back as soon as possible!

Ada Dining at Ruko Golden 8 Gading Serpong Tangerang

June 27th, 2017. Before our staycation at Gading Serpong, we drove around to find a nice place to have our lunch. Then I remember that Ada Dining opened 11am today. So I directed my hubby to the place.

IMG_0601

Ada Dining opened 1 month ago. I knew about the opening, but since it’s far away from my place, I couldn’t come sooner. So when I got a chance to stay at Gading Serpong, I asked my hubby to visit the place. It’s a really nice place. Simple decoration with black and white seat. When we arrived, a friendly face greeted us. It’s the owner and also the chef. I knew that we were in good hands, after I saw knives at the kitchen hahaha..

IMG_0602 IMG_0603 IMG_9737 IMG_0604 IMG_0605 IMG_0611 IMG_0609 IMG_0608

Iced Milk Tea 25k

It’s a little bit watery. Maybe because I asked for less coffee.

IMG_0624 IMG_0626

Iced Lemon Tea 25k

IMG_0606

Iced Tea 12k

IMG_0607

Hamburg Steak 45k

#mashed potato #beef patty #sunny side up #gravy

Love the texture of the mashed potato and the beef patty. And of course the perfect sunny side up! OMG! But, I told them that the gravy was a little bit bland. Just a little bit. It’s ok for me, since I didn’t eat salty food since a long time ago. But maybe for some people, they need to put a little seasonings. Maybe. LOL. I think I need more mashed potato haahhahaa..

IMG_0614 IMG_0615 IMG_0621 IMG_0622

Bulgogi-Bap 45k

#bulgogi on rice #sunny side up

This was my hubby’s order. It’s rice with bulgogi on top and sunny side up. Dayum! The bulgogi was tender and juicy. Well-seasoned and flavourful. I will order this one again when I come back to this place. Addictive and super duper recommended. Trust me! No lebay! LOL.

Takuma Coffee House at Ruko New Jasmine Extention Gading Serpong Jakarta

June 27th, 2017. I knew about this coffee house early this year *they opened November 2016* but then, when I wanted to visit this place, they had a renovation. So I postponed my schedule until today. I was very happy when I found out that Takuma opened today, since so many places closed until tomorrow.

IMG_0629

A humble coffee house with friendly barista. I love the ambiance. It’s a pretty coincidence to find out that they reopened 10 days ago. I had staycation nearby so I scheduled it today. I stopped by around 11am, and they’re still closed. I moved to another place, had lunch, texted Takuma and came back around 12pm. Anyway, I was curious why they named it Takuma. And according to the owner, it’s randomly picked since he loved Japanese concept. So after doodling a T for their logo, he searched Japanese name with initial letter T. And Takuma was born. 🙂

Latte 35k

As usual I asked for less coffee. And when I sipped the latte, it was one perfect latte. It’s not too milky, not too coffee, not too watery. Just perfect, for me. Well, I’m not a coffee expert. So, it’s only my two cents.

IMG_0641 IMG_0642

Korte Chocolate 38k

It’s my hubby’s order. And Korte was one chocolate brand that I love. It’s really really delicious. Dark chocolate flavour with perfect texture. Not too creamy. Love Love Love.

IMG_0644 IMG_0643

Below you will find me, disguise as Gudetama. LOL.

Thank you Takuma for the delicious coffee and chocolate. We’ll be back for your food. Wait for us!

[HOTEL] Pullman Jakarta Indonesia – Grand Deluxe Executive Suite

June 10th, 2017 – June 11th, 2017

Pullman Jakarta Indonesia is right by the iconic Thamrin Roundabout in the heart of Jakarta. We know what the capital city has to offer, what needs to be seen, heard, tasted. Because Pullman is cosmopolitan.

IMG_9157

My sister and her family stayed here 3 years ago, a complimentary for Vivi’s sweet 17th birthday *my lovely niece*, and I was very happy to be back here again. Love the lobby area. Very spacious and friendly. And I just realized that they have children playground there. They also have an area for internet connections. I really love their lobby. Spaciously huge hahaha. High ceiling with elegant stairs.

IMG_9166 IMG_9159 IMG_9155 IMG_9160

Grand Deluxe Executive Suite (Room 1058)

97sqm. Entertain in style with panoramic Thamrin Roundabout views in a suite. Modern design complements the amenities in a Grand Deluxe Executive such as spacious separate lounge area with dining table and access to Executive Lounge.

WOW! I was stunned with the beauty of the room. They have a very spacious living room, with gigantic sofa. My hubby instantly fell in love with the sofa and the TV remote control LOL. Love the huge bathroom too. What about the bedroom? Super love. One thick bed with comfortable pillow. Super cozy. And by the way, they have another toilet in the living room. Fantastic!

I didn’t get a chance to try their executive lounge. But I think it’s as lovely as the executive room.

Breakfast Time

SANA SINI, the hotel’s signature restaurant, puts new definition to all-day dining by featuring four culinary centers of the world.

Breakfast at SANA SINI. Pretty amazing with a lot of choices from egg station to desserts station. Definitely a keeper. Spacious area with many food stations and friendly gesture from the people.

Kata Kata eattomeet at Pluit Karang Timur Jakarta

June 25th, 2017. We’re in Neo SOHO mall when Hans asked me to join him to a new venue near Muara Karang. I saw their Instagram and asked hubby to take us there. He agreed. Yaaay. So after we finished our late lunch, we drove to Kata Kata. It’s quite hard to find the place, and the map wasn’t helping at all. LOL. Then, we called.. Finally. Hahaha..

IMG_0513

Kata Kat: a place for eattomeet. Kata Kata: a place to gather with family, friends, relatives, colleagues or meet new people.

The place wasn’t very spacious, but it’s comfortable enough to have breakfast, lunch or dinner, or just hang out for coffee with buddies. It’s their second day. When we arrived, it’s already very very crowded and noisy. Good thing, they’re already finished. And we could enjoy our early dinner in peace. But not for a long time, because around 5:30pm there’s a family with 2 kids, screaming all the time. LOL. There you go again, my peaceful moment. Well, I didn’t blame the place. It’s the family! Hahaha..

Complimentary

IMG_0497 IMG_0498

Ice Cappuccino 27k

Hans ordered this one, and he said to me that it’s too watery. Need improvement.

IMG_0509

Ice Chocolate drinks 27k

The ice chocolate was also too watery. Yup, too much water. I needed a creamy ice chocolate with rich texture and flavourful.

IMG_0510

Shaken Ice Tea Strawberry 25k

It’s just strawberry ice tea. Nothing special.

IMG_0514

Salted Egg Rice Bowl 45k

selection of roasts: Roast Pork | stemaed fragrant rice | scrambled egg | confit shitake mushroom | salted egg sauce

Love the roast pork. Love the texture of the rice also. But needed more flavour for the salted egg sauce. It’s creamy but we couldn’t find the salted egg sauce in the rice bowl. Too bad. It’s just like a pork rice bowl. Hope next time will be better.

IMG_0507 IMG_0508

Our XL Cheeseburger 65k

caramelized onion | 125 gram ground beef | mozarella and slice cheddar | sweet potato chips | sunny side up | bbq sauce | creamy mushroom | fresh lettuce

A little bit disappointed with the presentation. We thought the cheese was melted and the beef was super juicy. Turned out, it’s only slice cheddar and the beef was quite tasteless. Served with hand-cut fries, which also flavourless. *sobbing* It’s not just me. Hans also felt that way too. Well, maybe next time they will make it a better cheeseburger with melted cheese and super juicy beef. *praying hard*

IMG_0518 IMG_0520 IMG_0517

Cheese Loaded Meat Fries 45k

waffle potato fries | sous vide shredded beef | coriander leaf | jalapeno pickle | cheese sauce

Super love! This cheese loaded meat fries was exactly what’s in my mind. Flavourful shredded beef with perfect texture of the waffle potato fries. They have my permission to add the cheese sauce hahaha.. Super recommended!

IMG_0505 IMG_0506

Congratulations for the opening, Kata Kata. Sorry for my honest review, but I hope you can improve more. I will be back to try your other dishes. Congrats again!

KING MANGO THAI at Neo SOHO Mall Letjen S Parman Jakarta

June 25th, 2017. I knew about this place when it opened for the first time at Neo SOHO Mall. KING MANGO THAI is happening, guys! LOL. It’s brand from Thailand, and it’s the new hype I think. I came today since it’s holiday and my hubby could keep me company. Yaaaaay. Are you ready to queue??? Whoozaaaaah!

IMG_0483

KING MANGO THAI is an exquisite fast drink served that specialized in mango as the main ingredient. It is a franchise product from Thailand and it has become a very popular product in Thailand and we believe that the concept we bring will receive positive response and a great prospect from Indonesia market.

Today they opened 12pm, so we waited at nearby coffee shop. When it’s 12pm, I drove to Neo SOHO Mall and prepared to queuing. And it’s already a long queue. LOL. “We were late!!!” I shouted to my hubby hahahahhaa.. I was amazed to see how they preparing the mango smoothies, whipped cream, mango slush and mango cubes in one big plastic cup. I heard that when they opened it’s buy 1 get 1, and the queue was very long. Then, it’s 40k per cup. And today it’s normal price. But it’s still long queue.. Wooooow!

IMG_0479 IMG_0480

Big Mango 50k

At first I only wanted to buy 1 big cup. Then, Hans texted me and asked me where I was. I said, “I am queuing at King Mango. Do you want some?” And he said, “YES!” So, I said to hubby, “We’ll buy 3 cups lah. I’m tired. So it’s 1 for you, 1 for me, and 1 for Hans.” After 1 hour and 40 minutes, finally we arrived at the front line. Then, “Ciyen, can you buy 2 for me?” OMG! @edmarvinz poked me. LOL. Ok, so I bought 5 cups. Hahaha.. And it was worth it. I loved the sweet mango and the texture of the smoothies. But I think 1 cup is enough for 2 persons.
