Native Coffee Tribe at Sautama Apartment Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. Yaaaaay. Finally I could visit the second branch of Native Coffee Tribe at Alam Sutera. I heard the news about this one far before they opened for public. But, you know, it’s really far from my home. So, I need a little bit effort to visit Native.

IMG_4065

Located in Saumata Apartment, it’s really a lovely one. Much bigger than the previous outlet in Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK. Still with those dreamcatchers hanging all around the place. Divided into 2 areas, smoking and non-smoking area. I gave my most love to the mural of a native girl on the wall at the back.

Lemon Iced Tea 35k

What a fresh lemon iced tea. It’s hubby’s order. He loved it so very much. Refreshing with a perfect sour taste.

IMG_4072 IMG_4073

Ice Latte 45k

I love the presentation. A beautiful glass. I wanna bring it home hahahaha.. I didn’t add sugar to this ice latte. The milk was already sweet with its own texture and flavour. So very refreshing to the hot day in Alam Sutera.

Cheesess Cheesecake Kyoto White 35k

Let the cherry blossom petals drape over the green moss and the cool breeze twirl. The Kyoto I know is traditional, tranquil and crisp in very subtle ways. The paper umbrella swirls as the geisha tiptoes on her cobblestone path. Our Kyoto Cheesecake reflects this city with its subtleness and the softness for that extra souffled texture.

I really loved the appearance of the cheesecake. Very beautiful with those mouthwatering berries. A slice of happiness. The texture was overwhelming. Well, it’s Cheesess. Of course, it’s one perfect cheesecake.

Great job Native. Definitely a keeper.

Coarse & Fine Coffee at Ruko Renata Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. I knew Coarse & Fine from a year ago. At that time they opened only 1 floor. The 2nd floor still under renovation. A friend of mine took me there. We had fun. And I still appreciate his good gesture until now. Well, it’s been a long time since I went to Serpong with friends. Nowadays, I go to Serpong with hubby. Thanks to him, I could still review coffee shop around Serpong even though it’s very far away from my home.

IMG_4025

Everybody already enjoyed and took photos of the *new* 2nd floor, but I didn’t have the chance to visit the place, until last week. And I was very happy. The 2nd floor is very gorgeous. It’s like a spacious living room. We loved it so much. And at that moment, the floor was just for us hahaha.. Well, I’ll let the photos do the talk.

Tamarind Soda 35k

It’s hubby’s order, but turned out I was the one who finish it hahahaha.. Too sour for hubby, I guess. I think he prefer the lemon drink 😀 Well maybe next visit. Yes, definitely have to visit the place every time I go to Alam Sutera.

IMG_4042 IMG_4047

Flat White 40k

Love the coffee. Light and had a very nice after taste. Well, I’m not a coffee expert. I just tasted my coffee like I captured my photos. With feelings. No intelligent theory hahaha.. If it made me feel good, it’s really good. Period.

Crispy Pork Belly Sambal Matah 68k

Fried tender pork belly served on rice with Balinese sambal matah.

When it came to my table, I looked at the crispy pork belly and thought, “Errr.. it looks very dry. Must be hard to chew. D*mn! It’s with sambal matah, I cannot give it to hubby. Aaaaaargh!!” Then, I tried one piece, and my heart melted. It’s crunchy and juicy and tender. Well, yes, it’s still spicy, but I couldn’t stop eat it hahaha. When one of the barista came to upstairs *yes, I was in level 2* he asked me if I wanted to drink some ice water, and I said yes right away. LOL. My hubby looked at me with sad face, “Please don’t force yourself to eat that spicy food.” I replied, “But it’s really GOOD!” He continued his blogging things and didn’t care about me anymore hahahahahaha. Super recommended.

Great job Coarse & Fine. See you soon.

Bake and Artisan Coffee & Co at Ruko De Mansion Alam Sutera Tangerang

September 1st, 2017. I heard about this one from my sister. We actually had a date here, but she couldn’t make it, since her hubby wasn’t very well at the time. Bake and Artisan Coffee & Co occupied the first level of the place. They did all the baking and cooking upstairs.

IMG_4000

My sister told me that their coffee powered by Ombé Kofie. In fact, they put a barista from Ombé Kofie. The place is lovely. Cool AC, comfortable ambiance and of course, a very friendly gesture from the barista. We love the place. And, he introduced me to the owner. I was happy that I could visit the baking area. Always happy to smell the aroma of pastries etc.

Ice Lychee Tea 40k

IMG_4015

Regular White 35k

As usual I told the barista to make my coffee less acidic. And I love the way he told me about coffee. He’s very good at it. My coffee was light and creamy and delightful. At first, I thought that they only good at baking. Apparently, they did a good job to collaborate with OmbĂ© Kofie.

IMG_4009

Marmer Cake 20k

It’s similar with my mom-in-law’s marmer cake. But it’s not really sweet. The size was very big hahahaha we had to push each other to finish it LOL. Love the texture, for sure. Soft and fluffy.

IMG_4011 IMG_4010

Butter Croissant (complimentary)

Thank you for the complimentary croissant. It was delicious. Love the crisp texture. And the size was just perfect. I think I can eat 5 pieces at the same time hahaha..

Again, congratulations Bake and Artisan Coffee & Co for the opening.

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.

IMG_4111

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.

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.

IMG_4105 IMG_4106

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.

Congratulations Kayu Kayu Restaurant. Hope to be back soon.

Home Brew at One Home Residence Alam Sutera Tangerang

March 11th, 2017. Finally, I could catch up with other foodies. Hohohoho. It’s Saturday, and we didn’t have anything to do, not even watching movies. So, we planned to visit Tangerang area. Yaaaay. First destination. Home Brew.

IMG_4437

Homebrew is designed to give you the sensation of coming home – far from the city. Homebrew meant to serve coffee and foods in a comforting way. Enjoy your cup of coffee while relaxing in our balcony, or lounging in our cozy indoor space. Although designed for relax and comfort, Homebrew provides a private space for meetings and private event.

Located on 3rd floor of One Home Residence, Home Brew looks soooo lovely. With a concept to feel at home, they made it so spacious with private room and smoking area. Pretty little things on the display. Gorgeous sofas. Comfortable ambiance. Definitely feel at home. Enjoy my simple review, then.

IMG_4446 IMG_4447 IMG_4454 IMG_4444 IMG_4443 IMG_4445 IMG_4439 IMG_4438 IMG_4442 IMG_4441 IMG_4440 IMG_4449 IMG_4455

Calamansi Mojito 45k

Thirst-quenching! Very fresh and strong sour taste. I wrinkled my eyes when I tried this mojito. LOL. Well, it’s really good because my hubby loved any kind of orange or lemon or lime or citrus drinks.

Calamondin (Calamansi) is an important citrofortunella, meaning that it is an intergenetic hybrid between a member of the genus Citrus (in this case probably the mandarin orange) and the kumquat, formerly considered as belonging to a separate genus Fortunella.

IMG_4452

Blue Mojito 48k

“This is new,” they said. The colour is tempting, right? Blue. From Curaçao. Curaçao is a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the laraha citrus fruit, grown on the island of Curaçao. Pretty amazing. Always love blue coloured drink. Errrr.. Well, ok.. always love coloured drink hahahaha.. Tasted so good, also.

IMG_4453

Crispy Chicken Fritter 50k

Fried chicken fritter, served with sweet and spicy Thai sauce dipping.

This is very good for snack before meal. Love the presentation. Tasted just like any other fried chicken fritter, but it’s addicting. We couldn’t stop munching it. But, it will be nice if they make it more flavour. We don’t really like Thai sauce. So it’s a little bit tasteless without the sauce.

IMG_4458 IMG_4459

Peanut Sponge Cake 25k

Yum! Peanut and sponge cake. When I chose this one, I expected nothing but a sponge cake sprinkles with peanuts. One bite, and I melted. Literally. I’m writing about this cake, and I’m drooling. Hmmm.. I think I have to go back there again to buy the whole cake hahahaahaha..

IMG_4450 IMG_4451

Great job Home Brew, definitely will be back.

Canadian Classic Poutine 35k

A savory collage of french fries, ground beef gravy & melted cheese

You must know that everything with melted cheese is always fantastic! Well I thought it’s a common French Fries. Turned out it’s better. It’s French Fries with cheese. OMG! Delish.

Poutine is a French-Canadian classic that is served across Canada. It’s a hearty dish of French fries, fresh cheese curds, and brown gravy.

IMG_8660

Nasi Goreng Cabe Ijo 45k

Green fried rice with chicken satay, sunny side up egg, savory anchovies, “petai”, “acar” & “emping” crackers

IMG_8658

Ayam Goreng Kalasan (half chicken) 50k

Slowly braised free range chicken in traditional spices served with steamed rice & “sambal”

It was called ayam goreng kalasan, but I think it’s different from ayam goreng kalasan that I used to eat. Ayam Goreng Kalasan should be sweeter and darker in colour. It’s actually like any other fried chicken. Hahaha. But it’s delicious. The meat was tender and juicy. I didn’t try the chili, but I think it must be good, too. 🙂

Congratulations The Spoke Bistro. Hope I can come again soon.
