Bakoel Koffie at Cikini Menteng Jakarta

April 20th, 2017. A simple review about Bakoel Koffie. Why simple? Since they didn’t allow me to take photos with my camera, I did some photos with my iphone. Pardon my photos, please.


I read somewhere that they named it Bakoel Koffie to tribute a lady who sold coffee beans in a bakoel (basket). That’s why their logo is a lady bring a bakoel. When they opened the coffee shop in 1878, they named it: Tek Sun Ho: Eerste Weltevredensche Koffiebranderij (First Coffee Roasting Company). Then they changed it to Bakoel Koffie. It’s a spacious coffee shop, the first floor for smoking area, the second floor for non smoking area. When I came, it’s so crowded, I couldn’t explore the floor. Maybe next time..

Djati Bistro & Drinkery at Oria Hotel Wahid Hasyim Menteng Jakarta

February 14th, 2017. I visited this place after I saw someone’s post about this. I forgot which one, but it looked so pretty in the post. And when I came to the place, it’s even prettier. Djati Bistro & Drinkery opened 2 years ago I think. Good thing I found this one.


Located on second floor of Oria Hotel, I loved the interior and the ambiance. The monochrome floors. The semi industrial intimate atmosphere. It felt so homey. They have small smoking area too. But, I prefer inside. Lovelier. I think I will be back there again for some me-time moments.

Grilled Boneless Chicken 75k

A Sweet Dish of Grilled boneless chicken roasted over flamed char using sweet soy sauce and butter, complemented by sauteed vegetables with a choice of steamed rice, French fries, of mashed potatoes.

This was very delicious. It’s sweet and flavourful. Tender boneless chicken meat with mushy mashed potato. A great option for lunchtime. Actually, most of the time I ordered grilled chicken, the texture always dry. Not every time, but most of the time. And this time was great. Not dry at all. Rcommended!
