ECOLOGY Bistro & Lounge at Kemang Raya Jakarta

July 11th, 2017. I saw ECOLOGY on Instagram. So when I went to Kemang today, I visited the place. They used to be 365 Eco Bar, but they changed their concept and renovated the place. It’s better and more beautiful. See for yourself below. 🙂

When I stepped inside, I was like a little girl with ice cream. The place was very very spacious with homey concept. The wooden furnitures and comfortable ambiance made me wanna running around and rolling over the place hahaha.. It’s very cozy. And for those #OOTD lovers, you should go there. So many #OOTD spots! My words couldn’t describe about this place. Let my photos do the job, ok!

Mango Juice 48k

Love the mango juice. It’s fresh juice, so it’s very very fresh.

Seared Semur Ayam 110k

Chicken thighs, confit garlic, soy garlic puree, chimichurri

The chicken was delicious. Tender meat and delicate texture. Love the combination of the chicken, garlic puree and chimichurri. But I think it needed Additional Steamed Rice 35k. Without the rice, it’s a little bit salty for me. Recommended!

Chocolate Banana Cake 55k

With chocolate mousse, bruleed banana, sweet pistachios

Complimentary from them since I had an issue earlier *I complained about something*. It’s a good gesture from them. Actually I didn’t wanna accept the complimentary. But they forced me to accept it, so ok lah, thank you so much. Like I said, it’s a really good gesture from them.

brood-en-boter Bakery & Eatery at Bangka Raya Kemang Jakarta

July 11th, 2017. Accidentally saw this place on my way to a meeting.. errr.. no no no.. wait a minute.. wrong reason. Hahahaha. Saw this on Instagram, and just in time I will have a meeting this afternoon, so I stopped by to see the place. It was gorgeous. You have to visit brood-en-boter super soon.

Located in Kemang area, it’s just stood beautifully at the super busy street. I was stunned when I came inside. Spacious with a touch of homey atmosphere and immediately fell in love at the first sight. I met the lovely owner and she amazed me with her passion. She wanted to open a nice place where everybody can eat healthy and still delicious. brood-en-boter was born on June 26th. On the first day, still opened for dinner. But now they open 8am to 9pm. Good, right? Beside breads and cakes, they also have various menu of main courses. And like her passion from the start, they served the bread and the food free from bread improvers, cake emulsifier, preservatives and MSG. And you know what.. you can enjoy your “me-time” there while your kids enjoy their activities in the kids playroom. Great job gal!

Cafe Latte 30k

When I asked what coffee beans they’re using, she instantly said, “Giyanti, of course!” She’s a Giyanti lovers. Yaaaay. For a less-coffee Cafe Latte, it’s really good. The texture was still bold but not acidic. Creamy but not too milky. Perfect for my morning.

Bitterballen 38k

One of the best bitterballen I’ve ever tried. Tasted so good with perfectly gooey texture. They put beef brisket in the batter. It was good. Well-seasoned. Melt in my mouth. Super recommended!

Gado-Gado 39k

I asked for non-spicy one, but I know in my heart that a non-spicy gado-gado isn’t right hahahahaha.. Yup, they made it a little.. just a little bit spicy.. It’s different taste from my usual gado-gado at home, but it’s good. Although it’s not really my palate but it’s definitely a delightful one. A healthy gado-gado, what could go wrong? Psst, you can ask for rice if you want LOL.

French Toast

A complimentary from the owner. It’s very tempting! And it’s definitely different from any other french toast I’ve ever tried. It’s really crunchy at the outside, and really fluffy on the inside. Really fluffy, like cloud, or snow? Hahaha.. Never tried cloud or snow, actually. *giggling* Recommended! You should ask them to make you the french toast. Beyond any doubt!

IMG_1318 IMG_1320

Actually I wanna try their classic sponge cake. I would love to try the nougat and the mocca meises OMG! I will order soon! Maybe next week. Anyway, congratulations brood-en-boter for the opening! It’s definitely a must-visit place in Kemang! See you soon again yaaaaa..
