Goedkoop Warung Kopi Belanda at Bendungan Hilir Jakarta

September 14th, 2017. I wanted to come to Goedkoop (Bendungan Hilir outlet) since forever. But, since nobody could keep me company, I visited the place by myself.

Finally, after years of not seeing each other, we (Andra, Vanda, & Thanya) reunited in early 2012. Since childhood we spent a lot of time together because our parents were business partners. But during college years, Thanya moved to America, and Andra & Vanda (siblings) were busy taking education in Australia. When we met again, we were surprised that we all have the same affection: our love for breakfast and coffee. Since the topic first came out, we never stopped talking about it. Among our thousands of conversations, Goedkoop emerged. A place of dreams of three old friends. We created this place with love, we hope you can feel our love in our cup of coffee.

When I stepped inside, I saw a big place with oldies environment. Yup, the place is big, but no fancy or thematic ambiance like any other new coffee shops around me. It’s just like a home with *yes correct* homey atmosphere.

Goedkoop Frappie Silverqueen 32k

I just had a cup of coffee so at Goedkoop I wanted to try another drink. I asked them, and they recommended their frappie. They said, silverqueen or bengbeng. Since I love silverqueen more, I chose silverqueen. Nice frappie. The flavour was sweet but not too sweet. The texture was perfect.

My sister told me that their srikaya toast was okay. That’s why I ordered this one. Love the texture of the toast. Thin and crispy with delicious srikaya and butter flavour. Super recommended!

Kopi Kotaku at Wijaya 1 Petogogan Jakarta

October 12th, 2017. Finally I could come to Kopi Kotaku. I heard about them before they opened. Sorry, forgot who gave me the information about them. They opened September 23rd, and I couldn’t come *sobbing* yeah, I was in Tangerang at the time. After Tangerang, I went to Singapore, then Pontianak. Well, finally today I came yaaaay.

When I arrived at the place, I fell in love with their simplicity. There’s one barista there. And he helped me to choose which coffee to order. Then, my eyes opened so wide when I saw there’s rice menu LOL. After ordered coffee and food, I went around the place to take photos. They have semi private room with 2 long tables and cold AC. Yes, I sat there. All by myself. Hahahaha. They also have smoking area at the back. It’s a really nice place.

Ice Daily KOTAKU 20k

Well, before I arrived, I thought that I have to try their es kopi susu. So I ordered this one. Well for me it’s a lil bit too milky. But it’s my fault. I told the barista to make it with more milk. That’s why, right? But, tasted so good. Maybe next time I tried the original dose. 🙂

Almond Croissant 35k

They have their croissant with the texture a bit dense. It’s not too crumbly. Not too sweet. Perfect almond croissant.

Kula Coffee House at Kavling DKI Meruya Jakarta

September 15th, 2017. Before I went to our staycation in Cengkareng area, I visited Kula Coffee House first.

IMG_5114

Located in Bamed Healthcare, Kula occupied a petite area just next to the pharmacy. I almost missed the place, actually. So lucky, I can read maps. LOL. But I came from the healthcare, so I had to ask someone in the foyer, “Where can I find Kula?” And the nice lady there pointed to a corridor, voila, there’s Kula. Actually I knew about them before they opened. When they finally opened, I couldn’t come right away. That’s why I was very happy that I had this chance to visit them. Hooray!

IMG_5121 IMG_5122 IMG_5116 IMG_5120 IMG_5117 IMG_5118 IMG_5115 IMG_5119 IMG_5123 IMG_5113

Iced Kopi Keluarga 18k

Love the presentation. So adorable. It’s like layers of the coffee and the milk. And I hated to mix it LOL. It’s really good. The coffee and milk mixed to perfection. Not too sweet, not too creamy, not too coffee. Definitely one of the best es kopi susu. I hope they will open many outlets in Central Jakarta hahaha.. So I don’t have to go far to drink their signature coffee.

Ardent Coffee & Kitchen at Pesanggrahan Puri Indah Jakarta

September 15th, 2017. Yaaaaay.. finally I visited Ardent Coffee & Kitchen! I once came to Ardent Coffee in Plaza Senayan. And they also have another outlet in Soekarno Hatta Terminal 3 Ultimate. When they opened another one in Puri Indah, I didn’t have time to come right away. I needed to find a right moment to visit their latest outlet.

Located in Jalan Pesanggrahan, Ardent Coffee & Kitchen is very easy to find. Beautiful facade, followed by a gorgeous interior inside. They have smoking area on the back area. But true, the interior inside is unbelievable. White walls, green plants on pots, and blue colours everywhere. I was so in love with the place. By the way, they have Tea from Lewis and Carroll, Ice Cream from Sore Sore, Cheesecakes from Dore by Le Tao, and Doughnuts from Dough Darlings.

Latte 33k

I love my hot latte. It really helped me to calming my head from noisy moms beside me. LOL. Sure, they have every right to being noisy, but I think they’re too much. The latte art was beautiful. It’s not too coffee, with creamy texture and delicious flavour.

Strawberry Ichigo 45k

Beautiful presentation with refreshing and delicious flavour. Fyi, Ichigo means Strawberry. So, it’s really a fun name. Ichigo Ichigo or Strawberry Strawberry. Fun, right? But trust me, it’s one recommended drink.

I love the texture of the doughnut. I love the flavour of the doughnut. I love everything about this doughnut. Oh dear darling, no wonder they called you dough darlings.

Actually this was a bit different from any other es kopi susu that I’ve tried before. It’s lighter and not too coffee. I couldn’t find the right word to describe it. Why don’t you try it by yourself and tell me. 🙂

Braised Pork Belly Rice 45k

rice, braised pork, braised pork belly, tea egg, preserved vegetable

Love the pork belly. It’s tender and juicy. At first, I didn’t think I will like this. The pork belly didn’t look so tempting. But, after one bite, I was bewildered. It’s really addicting. Actually, I took away another portion for my afternoon meal hahaha..
