WolterHouse Coffee & Space at Wolter Monginsidi Jakarta

May 2nd, 2017. It’s more than a month since I went to WolterHouse. I wanted to come to this place because I saw their doughnut at @eatandtreats. I went there with Cindy and Hans. Actually we weren’t planning it. All of a sudden, we were there. And I came back again on June 6th, 2017 because I wanted to give it a try about the doughnut. I’ll tell you all about it later.

Located on the 3rd floor, above of Kambing Bakar Cairo and Jjang Korean Restaurant, WolterHouse is a small working space. Before you get to the place, you’ll find funny murals.

It’s not spacious but very comfortable. You will feel homey when you come inside. They also offer a really nice space for meeting in a semi-private area. I forgot how much we have to pay for the rent. I think around 125k per hour. When I came at first, it’s already dark, that’s why you will see the difference lighting in some photos below. Enjoy.

Ice Latte 33k

It’s Cindy’s order. I tried a sip and it was delicious.

Hot Chocolate 33k

It was beautiful. Love the latte art. And it’s delicious. A thick texture with not too creamy flavour. Hot chocolate is a favourite drink for rainy days. But for me, it’s a favourite drink for every situation. Cuddling in bed with warm chocolate in both hands. Stress days with works, and a hot chocolate comes to the rescue. And every kind moments.

Iced Manatahn 25k

The first time I went there, I didn’t have a chance to try this one. So the second time, it’s my first order there hahaha.. It was really good. Not too sweet. And if you wanna add more sweet to the coffee, you can just ask the barista for simple syrup. It’s richer and creamier than any other ice milk coffee I’ve ever tried.

Doughnut Nuttela 25k

Well, the first time I tried this doughnut, it was a disappointment. The Nutella filling could be better. But then at the second time, I bought this doughnut again and hooraaaaaay it was cray!! I knew I deserved better hahahahaha.. Please be advised when you see so many photos below. I was just too excited LOL. I think I loved the nutella more than the dough.

Carrot Cake 20k

Garlic Chicken Rigatoni 35k

Please enjoy itu while it’s warm. But if you’re hungry, you better order 2 portions. It was too small for a very hungry tummy. Well, my tummy, for sure. LOL. Tasted delicious with perfect texture of the pasta.

Rigatoni [riɡaˈtoːni] are a form of tube-shaped pasta of varying lengths and diameters. They are larger than penne and ziti, and sometimes slightly curved, though nowhere near as curved as elbow macaroni. Rigatoni characteristically have ridges down their length, sometimes spiraling around the tube. And unlike penne, rigatoni’s ends are cut square (perpendicular) to the tube walls instead of diagonally.

Definitely a place to visit when you’re in the mood for good coffee and great working space.

BirdMan at 18 Parc Place SCBD Sudirman Jakarta

June 6th, 2017. I heard about this new place from a friend. Then, I stalked their instagram, and very very curious. So, I planned to visit BirdMan as soon as possible, since I loved Japanese cuisine. Lucky me, I had a chance to visit while they’re having transitional menu this week from 3pm to 5pm. When my friends asked me, I told them that I wanted to try BirdMan. They insisted to join me. *rolling my eyes*

Located in SCBD area, BirdMan is very easy to find. Me and my friends walked from our previous venue to BirdMan. It’s only walking-distance. BirdMan isn’t too spacious. It’s also not too small. It’s just perfect for a Modern Japanese gastropub. Love the marble tables all over the place *wink wink* 😉 I could imagine those foodies will crawl all over the place hahaha.. Warm ambiance with friendly gesture from the people. Well, let’s look around the place before the dishes.

DRINKS

Iced Ocha 25k

Yuzu 58k

Loved the taste of the yuzu. So refreshing.

IMG_9544 IMG_9546

A FEW OF THESE

Sliced Gyutan, Kimchi Mayo 92k

Beef tongue with kimchi mayo as the dip sauce. Tasted so good with impeccable texture. It’s not too chewy and not too delicate. It’s only too perfect. A taste you will never forget. That savoury smell and unique texture can be very addictive. Well, next time I will order warm rice to keep the gyutan a company.

The word gyūtan is a combination of the Japanese word for cow ( gyū) and the English word tongue.

Okonomiyaki 85k

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients. This time they’re using pork and seafood for the filling. OMG! It’s really really good. Very beautiful presentation with life-changing flavour LOL. Yes, it was that good. Hahaha. Literally translated as “fried stuff you like”, okonomiyaki is one of Japan’s classic food. It’s my favourite food also. Fyi, if you don’t eat pork, you just told them to change the ingredients to “only seafood.”

OUR BIRD – SPECIALITY BIRD

Crispy Chicken Namban 52k

It’s similar with chicken karaage. They presented it with skewers. I think this was my first time trying chicken namban. It’s also my first time heard about “namban.” It’s a chicken cutlet that has a crunchy, breaded texture with a light sweet glaze on the outside, served with creamy sauce. It’s really delicious. Super recommended.

SERIOUS NON BIRDMEAT

Pork Katsu 160k

They served the pork katsu with 2 kind of sauces. Choose whichever you like. The pork katsu was delicious and flavourful, but I prefer that they thicker the meat, not the skin. The choice is yours whether to dip or drizzle the sauce over the pork katsu. Another recommended one. But next time I think I will order the pork katsu don.

IMG_9548 IMG_9552 IMG_9549 IMG_9550

I hope I could meet the genius person behind those delicious food. Well, maybe next time on my next visit. Yes, definitely will be back. I think I was hypnotized hahaha.. Ok BirdMan, wait for me, soon!
