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.

Dough Darlings: Dark Chocolate Crack Cookie 18k

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.

Anyway, great job Ardent. You impressed me. Definitely a keeper.

Pok Fan Crispy and Braised Pork Rice at Pesanggrahan Kembangan Jakarta

September 15th, 2017. Finally, another pork place. Yaaaaaay. Pok Fan opened on August 2017. I just had time that day to visit it.

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..

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.
