When I arrived to Pok Fan, I was familiar with the place. Turned out I’ve been there before, when I had foodtasting at a place belong to someone I know. I just realized that she closed her place. *sobbing* Well, now it’s time for me to try this new pork place. Cannot wait!

Pokopi 15k

pokoknya kopi pilihan

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..

The Fctry Bistro & Bar at Lippo Mall Puri Jakarta

June 26th, 2017. After a sweet treats, I needed a savoury one. So, we went to Lippo Mall Puri, since my hubby had never been there. We walked around, then I remember that The Fctry Bistro & Bar serve pork. Yaaaay.

They opened 3 years ago, I think. Yes, a lil bit late for me visiting the place. I remember they invited me some times ago but I couldn’t come. So, I think it’s time for me to stopover and trying their food. The place isn’t so big. The interior is very industrial. Grey walls with black pipes intersecting all over the walls.

Regular Ice Tea 30k

Midnight in Paris 40k

They use tea et al brand.

The sweet taste of lush peaches, fragrant purple rosebuds, and lily blossoms are blended with the fine quality of black tea leaves. A unique, delish cup with soothingly sweet fruity undertones, floral notes, and a delighting finish. Refreshingly delicious as a hot or an iced tea.

Tagliatelle Ragu 90k

Fresh Tagliatelle, Pork Belly Ragu & Cracklings

It’s my hubby’s. I love the texture of the tagliatelle. Not too moist, not too hard. Just perfect. Love the pork belly ragu. Well-seasoned and very scrumptious. Not a very tempting presentation, but don’t judge a book by its cover, remember? So, I was pretty sure it will make you addicted.

ragu (in Italian cooking) means a sauce typically made with ground meat, onions, tomato puree, and red wine, and served with pasta.

Crispy Pork Belly with Sambal Matah 90k

Signature Crispy Pork Belly with Sambal Matah

Well, this was quite funny. I let them put the sambal matah for my photos. After that, I asked them to remove the sambal matah. I thought it will be less spicy. Too bad, the spicy wasn’t from the sambal matah only. It’s also in the sauce. So, yeah, I kept suffering hahahahaha.. But, the crispy pork belly was DABOMB! I was in love with the pork belly. Juicy, tender, delicious. Super recommended!

Thank you for those delicious food. Definitely will be back!

Kalaku Coffee & Company at Pesanggrahan Kembangan Puri Jakarta

April 16th, 2017. I had a birthday invitation at noon around Pesanggrahan street, so before that, I planned to go to a coffee shop nearby. I looked around the venue and voila! Kalaku.

IMG_6424

From the facade, it’s quite nice, with 3-cars parking lot. But when I stepped inside, I found it quite oldies. It’s very spacious, with several tables and seats scattered neatly all around. There’re men doing some works near the barista. They politely said sorry for the inconveniences. They have smoking area outside, only 2 tables. The barista worked alone, then another man came. But, it’s only us, so they weren’t very busy. Well, please enjoy my simple review then.

Ice Lychee Tea 28k

Caffee Nutella 35k

As usual, I asked the barista first. If I cannot drink coffee but I want to drink coffee, what should I drink? He said, “Caffee Nutella is good. I will make it not too coffee for you.” Yaaaaay. And it was really delicious. It’s coffee but full of Nutella. Love it. Sweet flavour with rich texture of Nutella, for sure.

Banana Bread 25k

It’s not really special, but it’s okay. The texture was fantastic. Sometimes they made the banana bread too crumbly. But this wasn’t like that. Tasted good too. They didn’t have many food or pastry. So, I guess it’s the banana bread or the brownies. I wasn’t in the mood for brownies. So, banana bread, then.

Hokkaido Cheese Tart 18k

Actually, I wasn’t very sure about this one. But, instead of brownies, I thought I prefer this one. So I ordered this hokkaido cheese tart. Its presentation wasn’t convincing enough but I think I wanted to try this one. And.. it’s delicious. The texture was great. Tasted perfectly delightful. This is what we sometimes called: “Don’t judge the book by its cover.” Recommended.

Hope to be back again soon. Wanna try their other food, for sure.

Dancing Goat Coffee Co. at Puri Kencana Kembangan Jakarta

February 28th, 2017. When I heard the name, I was interested. It’s such a thrilling name for a coffee shop. And I was very curious. But, before I asked to the people there, Ivan had already asked his friend that happened to be one of the owners there. And it’s a new fact for me. Dancing Goat.

IMG_4105

Once upon a time, there was an Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi. He noticed that when his flock nibbles on the bright red berries of a certain bush, they became more energetic, dancing and jumping around. Kaldi tried the berries himself and felt exhilarated; so he brought the berries to an Islamic monk in a nearby monastery. The monk disapproved of their use and threw them into a fire, resulting in an enticing aroma. The roasted beans were quickly raked from the embers, ground up, and dissolved in hot water, yielding the world’s first cup of coffee.

Well, such a legendary story. But it’s my first time hearing about this one. As a matter of fact, I think many people was just like me. LOL. Dancing Goat have 2 levels. And when I saw the 2nd level, I chose to be there. It’s more spacious with more beautiful set. Please enjoy my modest review with several photos.

Cappuccino 31k

Love the cappuccino because it’s light. For some coffee lovers, they will say that it’s too milky. Well, we cannot make everybody happy, right? LOL. But, I love the presentation. I don’t know why. It’s just lovely, for me.

Frozen Matcha Affogato 38k

A cute drink. Special beverage, I guess. The word affogato comes from the Italian affogare, meaning to drown,  in which a scoop of ice cream is submerged in a shot of espresso. And they use matcha instead of espresso. A very nice substitute, since I cannot drink espresso hahahaha..

Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart 37k

LOVE LOVE LOVE! It’s very sweet, but since I drink matcha, it’s a great combination. The texture is superb. I could still taste it right now, while blogging about this. Please someone, send this tart to me. Right here! Right now! Such an indulging tart. The perfect end to any special meal!

Definitely will be back for the tart. LOL!
