Eight Wheels Coffee and Eatery at Ruko Times Square Gading Serpong Tangerang

November 3rd, 2017. Opened in August, Eight Wheels Coffee and Eatery was quite new. Actually I was a bit hesitant to go there since I’ve never been in Ruko Times Square. I had my doubt about the place. But my hubby said, “Let’s try. If it’s not good, you can always walk out.” OK!

Located on second floor of Ruko Times Square, Eight Wheels Coffee occupied 2 levels. The 1st level was very small. I think it shared area with a yoga class. The 2nd level was bigger, with smoking area also. And it was beautiful. We felt comfortable with the atmosphere of the place.

Houjicha 35k

I drank too much coffee, so when I saw they have houjicha, I ordered it instantly. And it was very good. Not too creamy, tasted delicious, with unique texture. Recommended!

Hōjicha (ほうじ茶) is a Japanese green tea. It is distinctive from other Japanese green teas because it is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal, whereas most Japanese teas are steamed.

Fried “Tape” Choco Cheese 28k

Deep fried “tape” served with choco, cheese & condensed milk

Delicious! I love “tape” served with meisjes and condensed milk. I asked them to reduce the cheese LOL. And they did a great job with this fried “tape.” It was soft and moist. Just the way I liked for “tape” menu.

HogHock at Ruko Golden 8 Gading Serpong Tangerang

November 3rd, 2017. Time to eat lunch! We found HogHock on our way to a new coffee shop. It was our first time there and we decided to try it.

IMG_7519

Pardon my blur photo. I was too excited. LOL. It’s not a spacious area. Maybe for 20 to 25 pax only. Simple place with bombastic product hahahaha.. Well, please enjoy my simple review below.

Free refill, everybody!!

Pork Knuckle original Combo with Pork Satay 55k

OMG! It’s so good! I didn’t think it would be that good. The pork knuckle was tender and juicy and very tasty. The pork satay was just okay for me, but hubby loved it so much. For me the pork satay was too tender. But hubby found it very delicious and perfect for his palate. Well, definitely will be back!!

Kofie KANE Coffee & More at Ruko Golden 8 Gading Serpong Tangerang

November 3rd, 2017. Another new coffee shop. Well, not really new, exactly. They first opened at Pasar Paraomount Gading Serpong. Due to some reasons, they were moving to Ruko Golden 8 since last month. Gulai KANE transformed to Coffee KANE and transformed again to Kofie KANE Coffee & More.

IMG_7507

One petite place with huge hospitality. But I didn’t try their coffee, since I drank a lot of coffee earlier. They have 2 levels. The first level for non-smoking area. The second level for smoking-area. I didn’t go upstair since I didn’t sit there long enough to explore their second level hahaha.

Thirst-quenching. Well, I don’t need to write about ice lychee tea, right? Same old, same old.

Taro Latte 30k

I remember last year taro latte became such a happening drink. Well, I love their taro latte. Not too sweet with light creamy texture. I drank it in a jiffy.

Red Door Koffie House at Ruko New Jasmine Gading Serpong Tangerang

November 3rd, 2017. Have you ever watched Alice in Wonderland? So, you must be familiar with Mad Hatter, right? Well, I guess the owner of Red Door Koffie House was a fan of Mad Hatter, since they put a big frame of Mad Hatter on the second floor. *high-five!!* I love Mad Hatter too LOL.

IMG_6091

I knew about Red Door Koffie House from Gaby’s post. And I was happy when I could come to the place. Yaaay. Anyway, I always have a thing with red door. I found it very eccentric, bizzare and sensual. And.. the door was very hard to open. LOL. New door, I guess. Hahahaha. On the first floor, there’s smoking area, and at the back, you will find a gradual seats with a mural of laughing woman and her crazy hair *I will buy her a comb hahaha.* You can get to second floor with elevator. You will find a cozy place with Mad Hatter in frame! Yaaaay! And I didn’t go to next level. Just ordered and stayed there until moving to another place.

Ice Tea 25k

IMG_7501

Caffe Latte 45k

Even for a light coffee fan like me, I found it too watery. I hoped for a stronger one. That’s why I took away the coffee, to enjoy it later at home.

Baso Oma Stella 79k

Our signature dish! Fresh ground chicken, shrimp and pork with mushroom

Yes, I ordered rice with this one. LOL. At first, I didn’t wanna order rice. But when I saw those meatballs, I said to hubby, “It will be super good with rice, right?” And he replied, “Sir, one rice, please.” to the server hahaha.. 15k for the rice. 🙂 Anyway, the broth was quite well-seasoned, while the meatballs needed more flavour. More MSG puhleeeaseeee!! LOL! But I love the texture of the meatballs. It’s like my Mom’s homemade meatballs. Miss you Mom *teary*

Congratulations Red Door Koffie House. Hope to be back to try other dishes.

Emmetropia Coffee at Ruko Neo Arcade Gading Serpong Tangerang

September 2nd, 2017. I knew about this coffee shop a long time ago, but didn’t have the chance to visit it. When we had staycation in Serpong area, I asked my hubby to visit new places around our hotel. And, we passed Emmetropia Coffee without any intention to stop by. But, since we still had time before dinner, we finally stopped by there.

IMG_4326

There is a time when people takes coffee not just for thirst-quenching or for caffeine spirit but more about love, arts, complex, appreciation, inspiration. And here we are to serve you. We choose from the large selection of coffee made by the best Roaster in Indonesia and more. In the attempts to communicate the essential nature of the coffee, body, sweetness, acidity, flavour as well as after taste, most of the time we test many cups and beans just to get the best of it.

The place is quite small, with a nice ambiance. It’s not a fancy coffee shop or luxurious place. It’s just a friendly coffee shop with friendly owner and friendly atmosphere. And surprisingly, my cousin and her husband lived next door. LOL. It’s like a small family reunion. *pssst thanks for the treat*

Ice Chocolate 33k

It’s quite a hot day, so ice chocolate was the life-saver. It’s dark chocolate, with not-too-creamy texture and delicious flavour. Ice chocolate is always my hubby’s favourite. But sometimes he ordered lemon tea or lychee tea. But for that day, I asked for ice chocolate, because I had 6 or 7 cups of coffee *totally forgot* earlier. LOL.

IMG_4335

Banana Pie 15k

We were full, but I needed one snack to keep my chocolate a company. So we tried this banana pie. It’s delicious, but I let my hubby finished it. I tell you what. He’s the best hubby in the whole universe. I could order everything, but when it’s the time to finish them, he always helped me. Hahaha. Best hubby, right?

Thank you Emmetropia Coffee. It was such a right choice to visit you. Until next time..

Voyage Coffee and Desserts at Ruko Sparks Gading Serpong Tangerang

September 2nd, 2017. When I wanted to visit Voyage Coffee around July, they were doing renovationg works. So I postponed my stopover. Until the day, when I came with hubby, visiting the new renovated coffee shop.

IMG_4302

Voyage Coffee occupied 2 levels with beautiful corners. You will find yourself admiring the lovely cloverleaf. The service there was very pleasant. The baristas were so enthusiastic as I walked in to the coffee shop. They have stairs to go to different side of the place. I took the stair to level 2, and enjoyed my coffee there. The design was quite simple, but somehow I instantly felt the minimalist ambiance. They used wooden materials for everything. What a lovely and photogenic place.

Cafe Latte 30k

I love the balance of the coffee and the milk. It’s pretty obvious that they made a nice latte. I really love how they put the latte in a not-too-big cup LOL. I finished it in a sec.

Iced Tea 20k

Butter Croissant 25k

Love the texture of the croissant. I love butter croissant, for sure. For chocolate, I prefer danish. Sometimes I ordered almond croissant, but I still prefer butter croissant. It’s really fun to spread the butter to the croissant.
