HOURS: Coffee & More at Kelapa Gading Jakarta

August 12th, 2017. I got invitation to Mal Kelapa Gading that Saturday, so I asked hubby to keep me company. Before we went to the event, we visited a new place around the area. It’s HOURS: Coffee & More. I saw the place from my IG timeline. Some foodies were invited to their pre-opening event, I think. I knew Hans was there. 🙂

I love HOURS-CAR, in the parking lot in front of the place. Gorgeous. Also the lovely facade which you can see on my photos below. I loved the ambiance. It’s very homey and cozy. When I came in, I saw the coffee bar in front of me, then I saw around, and I found a very beautiful dining area. At the back area, they have VIP room and smoking room. Well, I don’t need to say anything about the place. You are very welcome to visit the place as soon as possible to enjoy the beauty of it.

Iced Lychee Tea 35k

My hubby loved the iced lychee tea. It’s not extremely sweet. Just a splendid taste of an iced lychee tea.

Picollo 35k

When I asked them which one less coffee from their white category, the server said : Picollo. So I ordered picollo. When it came to my table, I sipped it right away. It was a little bit richer with a hint of milky flavour. And yes, it’s the first time I ordered picollo. I used to order latte, because I cannot drink too much coffee. Hooray for my first cup of picollo hahaha..

Fried Chicken Wing 60k

Chicken Wing was a good dish when you didn’t wanna eat huge portion. That’s why we ordered this one. It’s delightful with the crispy skin and delicate juicy chicken. My hubby loved it so very much hahaha..

IMG_3006 IMG_3007

Fish and Chips 70k

Instead of steak, we ordered fish and chips. We still have room in our tummy, just enough for fish and chips. Not too much space hahaha.. Well-seasoned with palatable flavour. Subtle texture of the fish. Too bad the french fries weren’t delicious enough. Just okay. I think they can do better for the french fries.

Congratulations HOURS. I need to be back to your place, to ask why you named it HOURS. Keep up the good work!

AFTERS at Mal Kelapa Gading 3 Jakarta

June 21st, 2017. I knew about AFTERS not long after they opened on March 2017. Saw about it on my timeline at Instagram. Well, yeah, now we can find everything on Instagram. And everybody wants to become number one. Did everything to be the first. LOL. Well, get back to AFTERS. After Sicacilla. It’s TOF Sicacilla’s extention of love. Same belief, same enthusiasm. Quoted from their IG account.

IMG_0308

Simple place with warm ambiance. Located on the 3rd floor of MKG 3. Friendly people served us. Not too many seats and tables. Just perfect for couples or small family.

Latte 35k

Love the latte. Not too strong but not too light. Ugh, I love when I can drink coffee again.

IMG_0317

Iced Tea 21k

IMG_0316

Joel’s Lasagna 69k

classic lasagna with meat sauce, bechamel, mozarrella, red cheddar, parmigiano-reggiano; served with salad

They served many choices of food. But when I saw they have Lasagna, I chose it. I always wanted to try every Lasagna. I love the flavour but it’s too gooey, so be prepared to get full easily. The meat was very generous. Super recommended!

IMG_0325 IMG_0326 IMG_0331

Fermented Cassava Bread 35k

I ordered this one because I missed my Mom’s cassava bread. And I was amazed with the texture and flavour of this bread. Totally fell in love. The texture was perfectly fluffy and crunchy at the same time. And the sweet flavour was delightful. Super duper recommended! I will come back for this one!

Coffegasm House Brew at Ruko Italian Walk MOI Kelapa Gading Jakarta

July 22nd, 2017. Still in a middle of staycation at Kemayoran area, we took our time to visit a new coffee shop near Mall of Indonesia (MOI). Coffeegasm was born only 2 or 3 months ago. It’s very easy to find this lovely coffee shop. Just beside lobby 8 of MOI.

IMG_1884

Adorable coffee shop with friendly barista. Love the atmosphere, it’s very simple. They had this wall full of frames. Beautiful. I was in love with the place. I think everybody should come to this place, enjoying the coffee and the ambiance. Trust me, you’ll love it. I don’t have to say anything, just go there and tell me what’s on your mind.

Latte 30k

OMG. I love their latte. It’s milky but not too creamy. Rich texture with delicious flavour. It’s a perfect latte. I was in the middle of “GIMME GOOD COFFEE!!” feeling, and when I drank their latte, it’s like a magic to me. It calmed my nerve. Definitely one of the best latte.

IMG_1899

Cheese Cake 35k

The barista told me that everybody loves their cheese cake. So, I ordered the cheese cake. It was really one of the best cheese cake I’ve ever tried. I forgot to ask them, whether they provide the whole cake or not. I really really love it. The delicate texture. The perfect cheese flavour. The crunchy base. OMG I’m craving it right now.

Great job Coffeegasm. Definitely a keeper.

Agenda Coffee & Bistro at Kelapa Gading Jakarta

July 21st, 2017. It’s Friday morning. A bright day to start my culinary journey. Yes, I’ve already had a list about new places in Kelapa Gading since I had a staycation in Kemayoran area, not far from Kelapa Gading, right? So, I visited Agenda Coffee & Bistro. It’s already in my list 2 weeks ago. *devilish laugh*

IMG_1718

I knew about this new coffee shop from Instagram. After I kept this one on my list, I saw some foodies went there. Well, couldn’t wait to visit the place, of course. But I have to wait until Friday since it’s quite far from my apartment. When I arrived, I went inside and I loved the place instantly. They occupied 2 levels of the building, but the barista said the second level hasn’t been opened yet. There’re a bunch of moms sitting at the back area. I think waiting for their kids from school.

Salted Caramel Latte 40k

I asked them which one is better, hazelnut or salted caramel. The barista told me that most people ordered salted caramel. Well, then I ordered their salted caramel latte. It’s delicious for sure but too coffee for me.

IMG_1731 IMG_1727

Fish and Chips 49k

Generous serves of Fish Fillet with fries and tar tar sauce

Surprisingly, I loved their french fries. Dip it in the tar tar sauce and it’s super delicious. The fish fillet was tender and delightful. But they could make it thicker hahaha.. The fish fillet was too thin for me LOL.

IMG_1728 IMG_1729

Honey BBQ Wings 29k

This was the complimentary, since they had this promotion buy 1 brunchie menu get 1 meeting agenda menu. Yaaaaay. I chose honey bbq wings because I didn’t wanna order the spicy one. Too bad it’s still had a spicy flavour hahahaha.. But tasted so good. The chicken meat was tender. Well-seasoned and flavourful. I think my hubby will love it, since he loved chicken wings, but next time should be no spicy at all. 🙂

IMG_1734

Thank you Agenda for the hospitality. It’s definitely a lovely place to hang out with friends or just some me-time. Will be back again soon yaaaaaa.

il Vero Gelateria at Mall Kelapa Gading 3 Jakarta

June 21st, 2017. Sorry for the late post hahaha.. It’s a day at Kelapa Gading, remember? I saw this Local Artisan Gelato on my way to find IMAX theater. I remember that someone said that il Vero Gelateria was very good, and cheaper than the other gelato business.

IMG_9504

It’s not a big one. Just a small kiosk in the middle of the mall. But good thing, they have long tables with 8 chairs. Very nice to sit there, after ordering gelato or sorbet. I took some photos and ordered the gelato and sorbet. OMG their price was cheaper indeed than the others. Small cup only 25k, medium 30k and large with 3 flavours only 40k. OMG. Favourite! Hahaha..

IMG_0298 IMG_0301 IMG_0297 IMG_0302 IMG_0303 IMG_0304 IMG_0305

Mango, Chocolate, Lemon 40k

Love the combination of sweet and sour in this cup. I love how the chocolate tasted so dark, and the mango tasted so sweet, and the lemon tasted so sour. The texture of the gelato and sorbet were so perfect, I wanted to add another cup. Too bad I had to eat again later so I had to postpone my appetite. Another time, I think.

Sensory Lab Indonesia at MKG Mal Kelapa Gading 3 Jakarta

June 21st, 2017. Finally I could visit Sensory Lab in Mal Kelapa Gading. Kelapa Gading wasn’t my favourite area to explore but I think they’re growing fast. Well, lucky me that hubby applied his leave at work on the same day that a new Tranformers movie’s premiere day. Hooray. Sensory Lab MKG finally.

IMG_9491

Sensory Lab is a bunch of dedicated coffee professionals who eat, sleep and make coffee. We roast, pack and sell coffee on a daily basis and look forward to sharing our journey with you.

Located in MKG 3, it’s very easy to find. Well, I don’t wanna bore you with history of Sensory Lab. Little information, Sensory Lab based in Australia. Brought to you by people from Common Grounds and St. Ali. I just wanted to show you around the place. Occupied a lovely space for dine-in, and also a coffee bar at an island space, just the opposite.

Latte 39k

Love the latte. Bold texture with mild flavour.

The Fri-Ken Benedict 75k

Fried chicken, two poached eggs, chipotle hollandaise on toasted buttery brioche

I saw that in Hans’ IG account and decided to order it. And we were very happy since it was very fragrant when it came to our table. Couldn’t wait to try it, but I had to take photos first hahahaha. The poached eggs were perfect in texture. The fried chicken was one blast spectacular in texture and flavour. The crispy skin. The tender and juicy chicken meat. The soft and fluffy toasted buttery brioche. It’s the impeccable way to a  happy-go-tummy.

IMG_0285 IMG_0292 IMG_0291

BBQ Brisket Burger 100k

Slow braised pulled Australian beef brisket, cheddar cheese, soft scrambled eggs, dill pickle, chipotle mayo, and onion strings

I think my hubby wanted to order burger. Then I saw this BBQ Brisket Burger on the menu. So I asked him to try this one. I love the pulled beef brisket. It was surprisingly good, since I never liked pulled meat. I thought it’s beef patty hahaha didn’t read the menu carefully. Good thing, hubby loved it also. The scrambled eggs were in generous portion. Another recommended dish.

IMG_0287 IMG_0288

Vanilla Panna Cotta 55k

Homemade granola, mixed berry compote, orange segments, orange syrup, mint leaves

Thanks Niko for the complimentary. It was one hell of a panna cotta. Flavourful with splendid texture. Love the combination of granola, mixed berry, orange and the panna cotta itself. Bursting perfectly in my mouth

IMG_0293 IMG_0294

Congratulations Sensory Lab for the opening. As I wrote this one, the one that in PIK Avenue was just opened too. Congrats again. Cannot wait to visit the latest outlet.
