Fonzu Cafe and Resto at Ruko Italian Walk MOI Kelapa Gading Jakarta

July 22nd, 2017. I went to this place while its name is still Read Life Coffee. And now they change the name into Fonzu Cafe and Resto. Well, actually I prefer the Read Life name, but I’m not the owner, right? Hahahaha.. So, sorry for the “Read Life” photos below, ok?

Located at Ruko Italian Walk at Mall of Indonesia, Fonzu had 2 levels. The first level is for non-smoking area. The second level is for smokers. Beautiful interiors with lovely atmosphere, I think everybody will love the place.

Latte 35k

I really love the latte art they make for this hot latte. Simple but beautiful. The flavour of the latte was quite strong. Not really my kind of coffee. I prefer they put more milk in it.

Fried Banana 28k

Love the crispy and crunchy texture of the fried banana. And I hope the banana was sweeter. But, it’s quite good for a snack with coffee. Me and my hubby love fried banana so very much.

Hope you stick to the name, Fonzu. Good luck!

Origins Authentic Taste of the World at Mall Kelapa Gading MKG 3 Jakarta

September 23rd, 2017. I went to MKG to visit Origins. It’s not a big shop or spacious outlet. It’s just a petite bar with several seats. So cute, I wanted to spend my days there. Too bad it’s too far from my home. LOL. Well, I just wanna give you guys simple review about Origins.

Houjicha Latte

The owner told me that youngsters love this houjicha latte. It’s sweet and creamy.

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.

Yujacha

This is my favourite. It’s sweet, tangy, very fresh and has this strong and particular flavour. Definitely my kind of drink.

Yuja-cha (유자차; 柚子茶) or yuja tea is a traditional Korean tea made by mixing hot water with yuja-cheong (yuja marmalade).

KAHVENIN Coffee & Resto at Ruko Italian Walk MOI Kelapa Gading Jakarta

September 19th, 2017. KAHVENIN is at number one on my list. So, when I had chance to go to Kelapa Gading area, I tucked the time to visit it. Well, before I went to KAHVENIN, I saw Hans posted it on his IG. I became more curious after that. 🙂

IMG_5397

Located in Ruko Italian Walk, it’s very easy to find it since it’s not far from Lobby 8 entrance – Mall of Indonesia. They occupied 2 floors. The 1st floor is for the coffee bar and several tables. The 2nd floor divided into 2 areas. The dining area and the smoking area. Well, it’s quite comfortable with cold AC and friendly servers. I will show you around below.

Ice Tea 10k

IMG_5407

Flat White 35k

Espresso, Steamed Milk, very thin Foam

A little bit disappointed with the flat white. It’s very watery. Just a lil bit hint of the coffee. Super light with less flavour of coffee and milk. Only 2 sips and I gave up. Sorry.

Pork Chap 75k

Caramelized pork belly served on top of rice

The presentation was very scary. Scary here, means that it looked so spicy. Hahaha.. But evidently, it fulls of sweet flavour. No spicy at all. Love the texture of the pork belly. Tender, silky and very rich in flavour. Recommended.

IMG_5411 IMG_5412 IMG_5413

I hope next time I come to KAHVENIN, the coffee will be better. And I am happy to eat their pork belly again. LOL.

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. 🙂

IMG_2995

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.

IMG_3008

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..

IMG_3009

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.

IMG_3010 IMG_3011

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.

Iced Tea 21k

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!
