Ground Coffee at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK Jakarta

June 24th, 2017. I was in PIK area when I saw Ground Coffee. It’s a new coffee shop. When I wanted to visit the place, we’re too tired to go, so I said to hubby to come another time. When we had a chance to visit PIK area again, my hubby was the one who remind me about this place.

“Appreciate your life, with a cup of our coffee.” Saw this statement on their IG account, and I was totally agree. We should appreciate our life, and it’s as simple as drinking a cup of coffee. *suddenly I smell good aroma of coffee* The coffee shop collaborated with Totem Room Escape. It’s a petite one, but worth to visit.

PICK-ME-UP Coffee & Friends at PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

June 3rd, 2017. On my PIK-cafe-hopping, my second place was PICK-ME-UP. It’s not a new coffee shop, but it’s new for me since I had never been there.

I loved the ambiance of this coffee shop. Bright and very convenient. The baristas were also friendly and helpful with my coffee. They have this promo for those who come with bicycles. Cool.

Caffe Latte 35k

I asked them for less coffee, but I guess it’s still a little bit strong for me. It’s good, but I was afraid my tummy couldn’t stand the coffee. And we didn’t order anything else. That’s why I didn’t finish it. They had apple pie but I never liked apple pie, so just the coffee.

Cassiopeia Coffee at Ruko Manyar PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

June 3rd, 2017. I remember at the time I asked hubby to keep me company to PIK area. I was always late to an update for new coffee shop or new cafe around PIK. That’s why when I was at the area, I visited some places. And this time I visited Cassiopeia first.

IMG_9301

Their motto: In here we eat, drink and breathe coffee. It’s a very unique name, actually. Cassiopeia is a constellation in the northern sky, named after the vain queen Cassiopeia in Greek mythology, who boasted about her unrivalled beauty. Cassiopeia was one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century Greek astronomer Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations today. They have outdoor and indoor area. And the cute thing, they have this walls looked like cabinets, covered the toilet hahaha..

Caramel Latte 43k

When I wanted something different from an ordinary latte, I ordered hazelnut latte, or caramel latte, like this one. 🙂 A delicious sweet coffee with lots of milk. My favourite taste for my coffee.

IMG_9293

Eclair Vanilla 28k

I had no expectation when I ordered this one. Turned out, it’s great. Delicate texture with ambrosial flavour. Sometimes eclair can be a little bit hard. That’s why I always happy when I found a smooth eclair. It’s also fragrant. One recommended dessert here.

Banainai 水果奶奶 Taiwanese Dessert at PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

June 24th, 2017. I saw about this place from my IG timeline. This afternoon, when I didn’t know where to go after lunch, I saw this one, and asked my hubby, “Can we go to Banainai? I think they have snow ice or something like that.” He replied, “Ok. I think I need one refreshing snow ice.” Yaaaay.

Banainai is a mixed word of “Banana” and “Nainai” (Mandarin word of Grandmother).

We also provide a happiness and comfortable environment for you to enjoy our delightful menu. Our desserts menu was made by ourselves with fresh fruits and no chemical additives, you can taste the freshness when you enjoy it.

Located at Rukan Emerald, it’s not very spacious, but really nice. And we were amazed by the people that come and go to the place. It’s never vacant. They told me that they’re selling healthy desserts. Ulala, not my favourite, definitely. *me, being skeptic*

Hawker Chan Indonesia at PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

June 24th, 2017. Famous for their motto: The Cheapest Michelin-Starred Meal in The World, Hawker Chan finally opened in Jakarta. Yaaaaaay. I heard about their famous restaurant in Singapore. When it came to Jakarta, I was very happy. I was invited to their pre-opening last Monday but could’t come. So today I asked hubby to keep me company visiting the place.

IMG_9619

Located above Tim Ho Wan, we can go upstair with elevator or stairs. Lucky us, we came around 11am, so we didn’t have to queue. Not very spacious place, just a typical clean and simple chinese restaurant. We met Eve and Ika *nice to meet you ladies* and they helped us choosing the menu. Anyway, I was curious about the Liao Fan. What’s the meaning of it? I forgot to ask them. Well, if I had a chance to ask them, I will update here.

Chan Hon Meng, the founder of Hawker Chan: As my first post on Instagram, I want to encourage all Hawkers in Singapore to continue learning, experimenting and improving the taste and quality of their food. I never thought that hawker food would be recognised by the Michelin guide. It was a surprise, a good one in fact. In short, I wish that all my fellow Hawkers would be motivated and strive to achieve the Michelin award in the years to come. Thank you everyone, my family, friends and customers for your continuous support!

Tender meat with delicious flavour. I was in love with this dish at the first bite. Well-seasoned chicken with perfect texture of rice and proper portion. The price is just right. Not expensive at all. I think I will be back to order this and not sharing.

Wonton Soup 36k

Delicious but not very very very special. Impeccable texture with flavourful broth. If you love soup dishes, you should order this one. Tender and delicate wonton with delicious meat inside the wonton.

Northsider Coffee Shop and Roastery at PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

June 24th, 2017. A nice friend told me about this new coffee shop. I was planning to go last week but I had another event, so I asked my hubby to take me there this morning. Love the ambiance of Northsider. It’s coffee shop and roastery. And very friendly people there.

IMG_0373

They have 2 levels. The first level wasn’t spacious, but the second level was bigger, with smoking area outside. We stayed at first level, easier for us to chit chat with the barista. Actually, they asked me to find someone there, but he or she still on the way. So we ordered first, until it’s time to go. Psst, they have this airplane hanging on the ceiling at some corner. Gorgeous!
