MG IND.USTRIE at Street Gallery Pondok Indah Jakarta

May 14th, 2017. I had an event at Pondok Indah. After we wanted to go home after the event, we walked pass a coffee shop. I remember I was there once, long time ago. And the name was different back then. Now its called MG IND.USTRIE. Turned out, Morning Glory Coffee collaborated with IND.USTRIE, and became MG IND.USTRIE. Cool.


We loved the place. It’s comfortable with enjoyable atmosphere. At first I wanted to visit the place the next time we go to Pondok Indah Mall, but hubby said, “Why not now? It’s in front of us.” So yeah, we stopped by for a little while.

Banana Tower 45k

bitesized banana topped with shaved chocolate and cheese

love the presentation. tower of banana. but too bad it tasted sour. i prefer a sweet banana, for sure. that’s why i asked for the chocolate rice to maintain the sweet of it. but, other than that, it’s good.

monViet at Pondok Indah Mall 1 Jakarta

May 14th, 2017. Finally, I came to the latest outlet of monViet which located in Pondok Indah Mall 1. It’s opened a month ago, but I didn’t come. I promised the owner that I will come, but when the date changed, I wasn’t informed. So, I missed it. *sobbing* But, we finally had a chance to visit it.


The story of monViet started in the 1970’s when a Vietnamese mother left her village to open a noodle stall at a street corner in Saigon. She cooked the traditional noodle soup called Bun Bo Hue. Hue is a town in central Vietnam. Her noodle soup was so tasty, that people waited in front of her stall every day for it to open. The little noodle stall grew bigger, and after a few years the mother ran a noodle house that specialized in different kinds of home made noodle soup recipes. The family also grew bigger and in the end the little noodle house not only nurtured 9 sons and daughters, but also saw the birth of the family’s “secret recipes of life”.

You can read the rest of the story at their website: When they opened their first outlet, Hans asked me to join him to a foodtasting, and I’ve been in love with them since then. Thanks Hans.

Iced Tea 20k


Bun Bo Hue 76k

Signature beef noodle soup

I fell in love since the first time I tried this soup. It’s spicy but very delicious. I’ve been addicted to this one for 2 or 3 years, I guess hahahaha.. After that, I changed to another dish. But this one is still my recommendation to those who ask me about monViet signature dish.
