Molasses Coffee, Cake & More at Cipete Raya Jakarta

May 17th, 2017. “As long as there was coffee in the world, how bad could things be?” I saw this somewhere on internet. Well, that’s why coffee shops are everywhere hahaha. Well, I visited Molasses with Cindy. It’s not far from our previous coffee shop. Just across the road. Actually we came in around 9am, but there’s no one. So we came back around 10:30am. 🙂

Located at Komplek Cipete Square, Molasses occupied the first floor, while the second floor occupied by other tenant. Too bad, on our visit, they didn’t have any food to order. That’s why we ordered only 1 drink. It’s not really usual for me to make a blog on 1 drink only, but I loved the place. So I wanted to show to you the ambiance of it. Please enjoy my most simple review. Pssst, I will be back there again to order food hahahaha..

Ice Salted Caramel Latte 40k

It’s really good, but too sweet for us. Maybe next time I will ask for a less sweeter drink. And we were too full to order another drink hahahahaha.. Too bad they ran out of food, since I was very hungry for savoury food. Well, another time, then.. *wink wink*

Wait for us, Molasses. I will come again to try everything hahaha..

Pikul Coffee & Roastery at Cipete Cilandak Jakarta

May 17th, 2017. I was invited to an event at Plaza Senayan. Before the event, Cindy asked me to join her to find new places at Cipete area. And then, when we walked around the area, we found a new place just at a nice location. The name was eye-catching. Pikul Coffee & Roastery. LOL. Pikul means carry on the shoulder. It was a fun name, of course. But when I asked the barista, he didn’t know why the owner named it Pikul. Well, next time I meet the owner, I will ask him or her. 🙂

IMG_8110

A humble coffee shop always makes me happy. And Pikul was one of them. A very simple place with indoor and outdoor area. They’re preparing the roastery area right now. If we’re not in a hurry, I guess, we would be sitting all day long at Pikul. The barista was friendly. We felt very welcomed there. We love the place.

Latte 32k

Love it. The after taste was fantastic. I almost finished the whole cup. The barista said sorry that he couldn’t make a beautiful latte art. But for me, it’s very pretty. The texture was rich with strong flavour. Love love love.

Ice Lychee Tea 25k

Scrambled Egg & Sausage 35k

I love how they made this scrambled egg. Look at the sexy colour. And the sausage was delicious. Great texture with delightful flavour. Scrambled egg is always favourit for breakfast. It’s a simple dish but if you cannot make it with the right texture, it will ruin your morning.

IMG_8127 IMG_8128

Great job, Pikul. Definitely a keeper. Since they open 7am every day, it’s really good for those early birds. Woohoo!!

Dua @ Cipete at Cipete Raya Jakarta

March 29th, 2017. Talking about coffee shops, there’s always a new one. But, this coffee shop wasn’t new. They opened at the end of August 2016. They occupied a small place in Cipete Dalam. On February 2017, they moved to a bigger place. And this time, I should visit the venue. Dua.

IMG_5491

Specialist coffee shops were the fastest growing major restaurant category in terms of global sales, beats the international restaurant industry as a whole. Perhaps even more notable is the fact that this growth was consistent across all world regions, specialist coffee shops driven by growing interest in chained café concepts and increasing acceptance of modern, international coffee-drinking culture as a whole. Dua try to introduce Coffee in our neighbourhood, how to brew, and the most important thing is how to respect the coffee itself, we love coffee and we try to bring homey ambiance to our shop. We use 100% arabacia coffee.

My first impression. Spacious. I really love the place. When I came in, I asked them, “Is Raisa here?” Hahaha. They said, “No. But his brother is here.” Well, I didn’t know what to say to her brother, so I just smiled and ordered immediately. Well, actually, Aline and Cindy ordered for us. I went outside and took photos. I was so nervous. LOL. Dua have 2 areas. Smoking room and Non-smoking room. Both of them are comfortable, but I prefer sit in non-smoking area, of course. And I realized that the place used to be a spanish restaurant. It’s so different, since the spanish restaurant was very dark, and this Dua is very bright.

Ice Mocha 40k

This is so good! It’s Aline’s order, but we all loved it. Very rich texture with perfect flavour. I think it’s one of the best ice mocha I’ve ever tried. And I guess, Aline and Cindy agree with me too.

IMG_5519

Ice Red Velvet Latte 37k

Simple thing like this could make me very happy. Red velvet latte. With ice. LOL. Perfectly sweet and velvety smooth.

IMG_5520

Flat White 30k

It’s Cindy’s order. Good thing she ordered flat white because I could taste it a sip. And it’s really good. Well, lately I could drink flat white since it’s more latte than coffee. Great job, Yen.

IMG_5514

Nasi Cumi Hitam Si Taqi 45k

Super recommended! Love the creamy texture of the squid. It was a little bit spicy but I was okay with it. The combination of warm rice, creamy squid, sunny side up and crackers. To-die-for! We actually fought over the rice. We tried everything to make each other gave up the rice hahahahaha. It’s useless, of course. LOL. But this rice was definitely approved by @yennymakanmulu *wink wink*

IMG_5523 IMG_5518

Russian Honey 30k

Love the presentation. Beautiful cake with caramel and peanut butter. Delicate texture with perfectly sweet flavour. It was indeed a delicious one, but I prefer they added the peanut butter. I need it more! Please gimme more peanut butter!

IMG_5511 IMG_5513

Choco Crumble Pie 28k

SUPER RECOMMENDED! Love the texture of it. Perfect crust. Love the flavour of it. Beyond compare. We were in love with it. Calling all chocolate lovers! You should try this one when you come to Dua. Must-try! You won’t share!

IMG_5515 IMG_5516

See you soon Dua. I will be back. And please let me know when Raisa is there. Pretty please! I’m her biggest fan!

SRSLY Coffee at Cipete Jakarta

November 20th, 2016. Before attending an event at Dharmawangsa area, we headed to this coffee shop at Cipete Raya. We talked about this coffee shop long before our date. It was quite far from our place. But, at the day, we thought, we should try the place. It’s not very far from our next venue. SRSLY Coffee.

IMG_0052

If you wanna have a good time with good coffee and good ambiance, this is the place. They have separate area for smoking and non-smoking. We sat at smoking area. If I felt hot, I came inside and enjoyed the AC. LOL. I love the long table near the facade. It looks so intimate. I will sit there when I come to SRSLY Coffee.

Ice Matcha Latte 40k

DABEST! At first, I was very skeptical. Served in a paper cup, it looked so simple. But after a sip, I thought, “Can I have free flow for this ice matcha latte?” Definitely a big NO. Hahahaha. But, it’s really good. I’ve never this happy to drink ice matcha latte. Most recommended!

IMG_0047

Apple Pie 35k

I didn’t like apple pie. When Leo told me that this one was good, I gave it a try. But, still, me no likey. Maybe I should try their other food. Hope to be back soon, then.

Crematology Coffee Roasters X Cipete Jakarta

November 2nd, 2016. Before I went to a foodtasting, I had a date with my lovely gal, Aline from @alinech. I browsed maps on the night before. Tried to find a new place nearby my destination. And we chose a new coffee shop in Cipete area. Crematology Coffee Roasters.

IMG_9268

It’s not as big as Puri outlet, but quite similar with the Senopati outlet. I arrived right on time, just before Aline arrived with her mom. “Hai Auntie! Long time no see!!” hugs hugs hugs. Funny thing, there’s a lot of moms. I think there are schools near the place so the moms killed their times there. Well, when I went to Senopati outlet or Puri outlet, there’s a lot of teenagers or office workers. So, it’s quite unique to find moms there. Hahahaha. Cool moms!!!

IMG_9272 IMG_9269 IMG_9270 IMG_9267 IMG_9271 IMG_9276 IMG_9274 IMG_9275

Affogato 39k

IMG_9277

Ice Lychee Tea 40k

IMG_9278

Fudge Brownie 30k

Always my favourite. Crumbly brownie with perfect texture and flavourful. When I went to Crematology, I never forgot to order this one, unless I was so hungry that I ordered a savoury dish instead of this sweet brownie.

IMG_9279

Oreo Cream Cheese Waffle 58k

Vanilla Ice Cream and a scoop of Cheesecake batter topped with Oreo Crumbles

The texture of the waffle at Crematology was perfect for my palate. And it’s always fun to eat their waffle. But this time, Aline told me that, for this waffle, the toppings were only like garnish. She hoped it will be as delicious as the one she ordered some time ago at the Senopati outlet. But the waffle’s texture was still out-of-this-world.

IMG_9285

Carbonara Pasta 80k

Cheese, Smoked Beef and Egg Yolk

As for the pasta, I loved the texture of the spaghetti. Thumbs up for the texture. But for the taste, I prefer the one that I ordered a long time ago at Senopati outlet. I hope they will make the flavour richer than this one. Please!!

IMG_9283 IMG_9284 IMG_9287

Congratulations for the grand opening, though. Hope I can experience a better lunch next time I stop by the place.

Warung Urban Cipete Raya Jakarta

November 22nd, 2014. We’ve arrived in a place named Warung Urban. The place wasn’t very big. A lot of pictures hung on the wall. But, I think it needs improvements. I love the purple colours all over the place hihihi but the furnitures were quite old. It really really needs improvements.

IMG_6364 IMG_6362

Es Teh Tawar 5k

Love it. Large glass. And it’s cheap LOL. I always love cheap ice tea hahaha

IMG_6360

Sate + Lontong 20k

The meat was tender and juicy. It’s cheap also but the taste was delicious. The rice cake was also in a perfect texture. Not too mushy, not too gooey, not too dense. Just perfect.

IMG_6372

Nasi Goreng Hong Kong 22k

It’s a big portion for the 3 of us. Delish, but nothing really special. But they’re very generous with the ingredients. Made my tummy very very full 😀
