Réuni Coffee and Eatery at Muara Karang Barat Pluit Jakarta

August 31st, 2017. I heard about Réuni Coffee and Eatery from one of my follower who always told me about new places *hi Penny* Lucky me, the owner of the place wanted to invite me next week. But, according to my busy schedule *big grin* I had to turn down the invitation. Then, all of a sudden, I had time today. So, we set the time, and this morning I ordered online car to Pluit area.

Located in Muara Karang area, from the facade I thought it’s a small place. Turn out, Réuni is quite spacious. When I opened the door, I arrived in the first area. It has 3 tables. Then there’s another door to go inside, and I found a bigger dining area. Actually, Réuni divided into 2 levels. They put coffee bar on the first level. For VIP room, they put it on second level. Well, they also decorated the second level for those who want to have gathering with friends or family. Smoking area is also on the second level. When I came in, they greeted me with friendly gesture. It’s actually a family business. Owned by two brothers *one of them is the chef*, Réuni was meant to be a place for everybody to have some reunion. Interesting, right? Btw, I love their playlists. Calm and serene. That’s what we need the most these days.

Café Latte 35k

I love their latte. It had light body with non acidic. The after taste was very good. But actually, their Flat White was the friendly one for my tummy. OK, next time I will order their Flat White. Remind me, okay?

Rainbow Fries 40k

Combination of sweet potato, purple potato, Japanese yam, straight cut and wedges served with 3 different sauces.

When I saw their menu, the name caught my attention. Well, you guys must know that french fries was never my favourite. But, good thing, the texture of their fries was really good. Perfect for my taste bud. And I love one of their dipping sauce. Of course not the chilli. LOL.

Jack D Baby Back Ribs 125k

Slow cooked USA baby back ribs marinated with no. 7 Jack Daniels whiskey served with potato wedges and garden salad.

Tender baby back ribs. My favourite! Well-seasoned with very juicy meat. But.. yes, there’s a but.. I need more whiskey! LOL! I ordered the half-size, and it’s really quite big. Perfect combination of bark, unique texture, captivating color and the delectable  flavor that everyone loves. Super duper recommended!

Reuni Style ‘Oxtail Soup’ 88k

Traditional slow braised Australian oxtail cooked in selected Indonesian spices and herb served with ’emping,’ chilli and fragrant rice.

No, you didn’t read it wrong. Oxtail Soup. In fact, I ate this one first before the baby back ribs hahahaha.. Super in love with the oxtail soup. They cooked it perfectly which produces a rich taste and texture. A hearty stew with rich broth and succulent will make me smile all day long. And the fragrant rice was impeccable. Too bad the oxtail was too big *errr.. are you sure, too bad? hahahaha* I didn’t get to finish the rice. *sobbing* Trust me, it’s remarkably super recommended!

IMG_3995 IMG_3996

Congratulations Réuni for the opening. Psst, they opened 9am every day, but they’re planning to open earlier for those early birds. Yaaaaay.. See you soon, Réuni. Keep up the good food!

Pineapple x Kopikalyan at BSD Serpong Tangerang

June 28th, 2017. Yes, another late post. I knew about this one before it’s opened. But since it’s too far away from my home, I just had chance to visit it on June. It’s actually the second branch of the original Kopi Kalyan in Senopati. And this time, they collaborated with Pineapple. Welcome, Pineapple x KopiKalyan.

IMG_0797

At first, I thought Pineapple is Spongebob’s house. LOL. Well, it just crossed my mind unwittingly. What? You too? *high-five* Well, after I browsed, I just realized, it’s a brand of furnitures hahaha. When we went there, we had to turn around twice to find the place. It’s not easy if you’re not from the area. Ok, well, we finally arrived. I was stunned by the furnitures. Too bad I couldn’t bring it home, since they only selling their furnitures to hotels, cafes and restaurants.

I was happy when I saw the pandan cake. It’s really their signature. I was in love with the latte. The light body with no acidic flavour. Hooray! A nice coffee to drink in such a beautiful place.

IMG_0803

Chocolate Almond Croissant 27.5k

When I came to their previous one, I didn’t try their croissant. So, this time, I ordered the chocolate almond croissant. Well, why I ordered this one? I love chocolate, I love almond. So, instead of ordering chocolate croissant or almond croissant, why not both in one croissant? Love the flaky layers of pastry. Super recommended.

Good time! Good time! Definitely a great addition for Tangerang people. *big grin*

The Fctry Bistro & Bar at Lippo Mall Puri Jakarta

June 26th, 2017. After a sweet treats, I needed a savoury one. So, we went to Lippo Mall Puri, since my hubby had never been there. We walked around, then I remember that The Fctry Bistro & Bar serve pork. Yaaaay.

IMG_0579

They opened 3 years ago, I think. Yes, a lil bit late for me visiting the place. I remember they invited me some times ago but I couldn’t come. So, I think it’s time for me to stopover and trying their food. The place isn’t so big. The interior is very industrial. Grey walls with black pipes intersecting all over the walls.

IMG_0580 IMG_0581 IMG_0582 IMG_0583 IMG_0584 IMG_0585 IMG_0586 IMG_0587

Regular Ice Tea 30k

IMG_0588

Midnight in Paris 40k

They use tea et al brand.

The sweet taste of lush peaches, fragrant purple rosebuds, and lily blossoms are blended with the fine quality of black tea leaves. A unique, delish cup with soothingly sweet fruity undertones, floral notes, and a delighting finish. Refreshingly delicious as a hot or an iced tea.

IMG_0590 IMG_0591

Complimentary Bread

IMG_0592

Tagliatelle Ragu 90k

Fresh Tagliatelle, Pork Belly Ragu & Cracklings

It’s my hubby’s. I love the texture of the tagliatelle. Not too moist, not too hard. Just perfect. Love the pork belly ragu. Well-seasoned and very scrumptious. Not a very tempting presentation, but don’t judge a book by its cover, remember? So, I was pretty sure it will make you addicted.

ragu (in Italian cooking) means a sauce typically made with ground meat, onions, tomato puree, and red wine, and served with pasta.

IMG_0593 IMG_0594

Crispy Pork Belly with Sambal Matah 90k

Signature Crispy Pork Belly with Sambal Matah

Well, this was quite funny. I let them put the sambal matah for my photos. After that, I asked them to remove the sambal matah. I thought it will be less spicy. Too bad, the spicy wasn’t from the sambal matah only. It’s also in the sauce. So, yeah, I kept suffering hahahahaha.. But, the crispy pork belly was DABOMB! I was in love with the pork belly. Juicy, tender, delicious. Super recommended!

IMG_0595 IMG_0596 IMG_0597

Thank you for those delicious food. Definitely will be back!

Rilassante Caffè at Kebon Jeruk Jakarta

June 26th, 2017. I forgot how I knew about Rilassante Caffè. I think I just knew. *I’m a magician hahahaha* I am pretty sure I didn’t find it accidentally, or passed by the cafe since Kebon Jeruk is quite far from my place. LOL. Well, after I visited a new coffee shop, I came to Rilassante.

IMG_0568

When I stepped inside this cafe, I was stunned with the interior. Well, it’s very spacious. Too bad, they still had empty area. I could picture it in my mind. They should add sofas at some corners. Lovely murals to do #OOTD things. Etc etc etc. Well, I guess, I will be back to this place when I’m around Kebon Jeruk. Such a nice place to do my blogging things, or just chit chat with my gals, or a me-time with hubby *also doing his me-time hahahaha* The bright ambiance was definitely a nice gesture for my photos. Ulalaaaaaa..

IMG_0569 IMG_0567 IMG_0573 IMG_0571 IMG_0572 IMG_0570 IMG_0574 IMG_0566 IMG_0565

Roasted Almond Caffè Latte 41k

A different kind of latte. A lil bit strong for me though it looked very milky. Recommended to those who loves strong coffee.

IMG_0575

Choco Baileys Bar 40k

We’re a lil bit hungry. And we thought this choco baileys bar won’t be enough. It appeared we couldn’t finish it right away ahahahahha.. Dense texture with right amount of baileys flavour. Love it!
