Kayu Kayu Restaurant by Kosenda Hotel at Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. Finally I visited Kayu Kayu Restaurant. First, I knew that this restaurant is managed by Kosenda Hotel. Second, I couldn’t wait to go there. So when I had staycation at Serpong area this weekend, I asked my hubby to have lunch there. Yaaaay.


Located at the same area with Ethnicraft, Kayu Kayu dominated with wooden furnitures and lots of plants. They have 2 levels, but when I asked them, they said that the second level was designated for function room. The restaurant is very spacious. Like, very very spacious! Inside the restaurant, there’s coffee bar which called 127 Cafe. They served coffee, tea and various drinks there. I really love how they decorated the place. It’s very beautiful. You won’t get bored walking around the place.

Complimentary Chicken Skin


Nasi Goreng K2 48k

Fried rice with choices of topping Roasted Duck (add 28k)

I didn’t try the fried rice, but my hubby said that it’s similar to “nasi goreng tek tek.” Well, for those who liked nasi goreng tek tek, you will love this one, then. Anyway, I tried the roasted duck, and it’s too dry for me. As a matter of fact, this fried rice came to our table very late, around an hour, in a bit cool temperature. It’s like they cooked it half hour ago, but they served to us half hour later. Great thing, they said sorry for the late food, and promise to serve better next time, since maybe it’s holiday and they didn’t have enough people at the time.

Laksa Peranakan 48k

Udon, beans sprout, egg, fried tofu, eggplants, with Chicken (add 20k)

This laksa came to my table also an hour later after we ordered. Good thing, it’s still warm. Tasted really delicious. Love the texture of the broth. And yes, it’s spicy. LOL. I couldn’t finish the broth, even though I wanted to do that so very much. Btw, I love the texture of the udon. Nothing beats the flavor and texture of fresh homemade udon noodles.. in a perfectly well-seasoned laksa broth.

Louie Coffee at Pondok Pinang Jakarta

June 29th, 2017. We were on our way to a staycation at Cilandak area from Gading Serpong. Then I remember that there’s coffee shop called Louie Coffee around Pondok Pinang that Cindy once asked me to join her. But I couldn’t come with her at the time. So I asked hubby to keep me company there.


Louie Coffee is owned by Louise Leny Lihar, who is a semi-finalist in Indonesia Barista Championship 2015. Located on the road side of Ciputat Raya, it’s not so hard to find. Trust me! It’s quite easy with maps. It’s actually inside of an office building. And I was stunned when I came in. Very spacious with backyard area. It was indeed one of the most spacious coffee shop I’ve ever visited.

Ice Chocolate 46k

Love the ice chocolate. The texture was light and delicious. Anyway, it’s not mine. It’s my hubby’s order.


Hazelnut Latte 50k

Yaaaay. I was curious about their latte after I read Cindy’s blog. It’s pretty clear that they’re very good at coffee things. It tasted sweet with light body and nutty flavour. What’s not to love about a delicious latte drink? What a recommended drink.


Kouign Amann 35k

Thank you France for this caramelised buttery Kouign Amann. The first time I tried Kouign Amann was in Singapore. Then, I always wanted to try different kind of version of this delicious kind of bread. This sweet layered dough caught my heart easily.


Croissant Almond 23k

For a deliciously decadent treat, I ordered almond croissant. Love this buttery and flaky almond croissant. I love the nutty, sweet filling, and that dusting of powdered sugar on top. You should order this one when you’re in Louie.

Great job Louie. Too bad it’s far far away from my castle. LOL. I hope to see you again soon.
