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*

IMG_8152 IMG_8153 IMG_8154

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!!

Galla Coffee at Cipete Jakarta

March 29th, 2017. I saw this one when I passed by to our culinary journey in Cipete area. We were in our online car, and we saw the place. Looked so gorgeous with greenish ambiance. So after finished our second journey, we headed to this third one, with “angkot.” Angkot is city carrier, a public transportation. Last time I went by “angkot” was when I still at work hahaha.. 10 years ago? LOL. Well, we arrived at the place, finally. Galla Coffee.

IMG_5524

Occupied a simple house on a roadside of Cipete with Lots of Flowers, Galla Coffee looked so beautiful with the garden surroundings. Lovely place with friendly people. And it’s really nice for those who liked #OOTD things. Imagine, taking photos in a beautiful garden.

Vietnam Drip Premium 25k

This was Aline and Cindy’s order. I did try a sip. It’s quite good for me. I don’t know about them. Since that was my first time drinking Vietnam Drip hahahaha..

IMG_5547 IMG_5549

SOMETHING HEALTHY

Bluepea Magic 25k

They served magic! I didn’t ask what’s in the glass hahaha.. Better for me didn’t know anything about it. But I think I heard the barista said that it was curacao, and the one that they poured was lemon. I love the presentation! Definitely in love with it. Purple is my favourite colour hahaha..

IMG_5550 IMG_5551 IMG_5552 IMG_5554

LIGHT MEALS AND BITES

Mushroom Bites 20k

We couldn’t stop eating this mushroom bites hahaha.. In fact, we fought over it LOL. Crunchy and crispy in texture. Delightful and appetizing in flavour. Recommended for starter, for sure.

Seven Speed Coffee at Cipete Cilandak Jakarta

March 29th, 2017. This was my first destination on that cafe-hopping day with Aline and Cindy *later, Hans and Vania*. A small coffee shop on a small path of Abdul Majid Raya, not very easy to find since there’s no big sign in front of the venue. But if you really pay attention, it’s there. Seven Speed Coffee.

IMG_5456

I just found out that Seven Speed is a term in bicycle world. Seven Speeds for Serious Riders. Seven-speed bikes are good for when you’re riding along more difficult terrain. The purpose of a bike with seven gears is to be able to adapt to and accommodate rougher conditions. And it’s really good that there some people that care about cyclists, and also dedicated a coffee shop to them. There aren’t a lot of seats inside or outside the coffee shop. So, it’s not a place to sitting all day long for blogging. Well maybe you can do that during working hours when not crowded. But it’s better for the business if it’s always full house, right?

Latte 32k

I was coffee intolerant hahahaha.. I can drink coffee if it’s not too bold hahaha.. so, I was happy when the friendly barista gave me a light latte. I could drink a glass without any leftover. But hey, it’s still a good latte. Still feel the taste of great coffee in it. 🙂

Peanut Butter Jelly Croissant 23k

When it came to my table, I was like, “Seriously? Half croissant? For the 3 of us?” LOL! But seriously, it’s good! Peanut butter mixed with strawberry jelly. A luscious combination, right? And when I come back again to the place, definitely one portion for myself. Love the texture of the croissant. Crunchy yet delicate. One more peanut butter jelly croissant, please!

IMG_5480

Pulled Chicken Sandwich 30k

Actually, never crossed my mind to order this pulled chicken sandwich.. until we saw another customer ordered this one. It looked appealing, with smell-so-good aroma. So we ordered this one. And it’s super duper delicious. The generous pulled chicken with amazing texture and delightful flavour. Funny thing, when we ate, the owner slash the man behind the kitchen told us about his background before he made this coffee shop. He’s one of the chef in one of five-star hotel in Jakarta. Whoaaaa.. cool! No wonder the food here so delicious. Hmm.. nice job Chef!

IMG_5479

Another place that I recommended for coffee lovers, especially the early birds. Come come! They opened 7am Tuesday to Sunday.

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

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.
