Nove Coffee at Pluit Jakarta

August 31st, 2017. After visiting one coffee shop at Pluit area, I moved to another one. Nove Coffee. A petite one in front of CloudNation vape store.

I walked around 550 meters to this coffee shop from the previous one. I almost lost before I arrived to Nove hahaha. There’s a car parked in front of the sign, I almost missed it. LOL. They have smoking area in the facade. Then, when I came in, I met a friend of mine hahahahaha.. *waving to Marina* She was meeting her friend there. So I joined them. We had good talk. 🙂

Red Velvet Latte 35k

When I asked what should I order between red velvet latte or matcha latte, they told me to go for red velvet latte. So I ordered red velvet latte. Too bad, it’s not as delightful as I hoped. It’s too sweet and too watery. I think the barista was new. He said to me that it’s hard to make red velvet latte LOL.

Cold Brew 40k

Salted Eggyolk Croissant 27k

I hoped the salted eggyolk was melted. Good thing it tasted so nice. The texture of the croissant was crunchy and crumbly. But I had a foodtasting after this one, so I didn’t eat much.

Monocle Coffee & Kitchen at Pluit Jakarta

August 31st, 2017. I knew about this Monocle Coffee a long time ago. But since Pluit is a far place from my house, I had to take extra time to go there. So, when I was invited to a new place around Pluit, I visited Monocle first.

IMG_3947

Located side by side with Concrete Co-working Space, it’s very easy to find Monocle, since they have this big sign in their facade. They have a small outdoor for smoking area, then when I came, I found a quite spacious place with a long way to the back area. I think I went too early, since they still mopping the floor.

IMG_3948 IMG_3951 IMG_3949 IMG_3950 IMG_3952 IMG_3953 IMG_3959 IMG_3955 IMG_3954

Flat White 35k

Yes, I was still wishy-washy about my coffee. Sometimes I ordered latte, sometimes I ordered flat white. But actually, they gave me same feeling. A satisfaction feeling after coffee-ing. 🙂

IMG_3956

Brownie 20k

I ordered this brownie as a company for my flat white. Too bad it didn’t fit my expectation. It’s dry and hard. So I didn’t finish it. Well, brownies should be moist and gooey. Sorry, you have to improve your brownie, man.

I didn’t visit the co-working space since I had to be at another place. Maybe next time.

RĂ©uni Coffee and Eatery at Muara Karang Barat Pluit Jakarta

August 31st, 2017. I heard about RĂ©uni Coffee and Eatery from one of my follower who always told me about new places *hi Penny* Lucky me, the owner of the place wanted to invite me next week. But, according to my busy schedule *big grin* I had to turn down the invitation. Then, all of a sudden, I had time today. So, we set the time, and this morning I ordered online car to Pluit area.

IMG_2881

Located in Muara Karang area, from the facade I thought it’s a small place. Turn out, RĂ©uni is quite spacious. When I opened the door, I arrived in the first area. It has 3 tables. Then there’s another door to go inside, and I found a bigger dining area. Actually, RĂ©uni divided into 2 levels. They put coffee bar on the first level. For VIP room, they put it on second level. Well, they also decorated the second level for those who want to have gathering with friends or family. Smoking area is also on the second level. When I came in, they greeted me with friendly gesture. It’s actually a family business. Owned by two brothers *one of them is the chef*, RĂ©uni was meant to be a place for everybody to have some reunion. Interesting, right? Btw, I love their playlists. Calm and serene. That’s what we need the most these days.

Café Latte 35k

I love their latte. It had light body with non acidic. The after taste was very good. But actually, their Flat White was the friendly one for my tummy. OK, next time I will order their Flat White. Remind me, okay?

IMG_3991

Rainbow Fries 40k

Combination of sweet potato, purple potato, Japanese yam, straight cut and wedges served with 3 different sauces.

When I saw their menu, the name caught my attention. Well, you guys must know that french fries was never my favourite. But, good thing, the texture of their fries was really good. Perfect for my taste bud. And I love one of their dipping sauce. Of course not the chilli. LOL.

IMG_3992

Jack D Baby Back Ribs 125k

Slow cooked USA baby back ribs marinated with no. 7 Jack Daniels whiskey served with potato wedges and garden salad.

Tender baby back ribs. My favourite! Well-seasoned with very juicy meat. But.. yes, there’s a but.. I need more whiskey! LOL! I ordered the half-size, and it’s really quite big. Perfect combination of bark, unique texture, captivating color and the delectable  flavor that everyone loves. Super duper recommended!

IMG_3993 IMG_3994

Reuni Style ‘Oxtail Soup’ 88k

Traditional slow braised Australian oxtail cooked in selected Indonesian spices and herb served with ’emping,’ chilli and fragrant rice.

No, you didn’t read it wrong. Oxtail Soup. In fact, I ate this one first before the baby back ribs hahahaha.. Super in love with the oxtail soup. They cooked it perfectly which produces a rich taste and texture. A hearty stew with rich broth and succulent will make me smile all day long. And the fragrant rice was impeccable. Too bad the oxtail was too big *errr.. are you sure, too bad? hahahaha* I didn’t get to finish the rice. *sobbing* Trust me, it’s remarkably super recommended!

IMG_3995 IMG_3996

Congratulations RĂ©uni for the opening. Psst, they opened 9am every day, but they’re planning to open earlier for those early birds. Yaaaaay.. See you soon, RĂ©uni. Keep up the good food!

Kata Kata eattomeet at Pluit Karang Timur Jakarta

June 25th, 2017. We’re in Neo SOHO mall when Hans asked me to join him to a new venue near Muara Karang. I saw their Instagram and asked hubby to take us there. He agreed. Yaaay. So after we finished our late lunch, we drove to Kata Kata. It’s quite hard to find the place, and the map wasn’t helping at all. LOL. Then, we called.. Finally. Hahaha..

IMG_0513

Kata Kat: a place for eattomeet. Kata Kata: a place to gather with family, friends, relatives, colleagues or meet new people.

The place wasn’t very spacious, but it’s comfortable enough to have breakfast, lunch or dinner, or just hang out for coffee with buddies. It’s their second day. When we arrived, it’s already very very crowded and noisy. Good thing, they’re already finished. And we could enjoy our early dinner in peace. But not for a long time, because around 5:30pm there’s a family with 2 kids, screaming all the time. LOL. There you go again, my peaceful moment. Well, I didn’t blame the place. It’s the family! Hahaha..

Complimentary

IMG_0497 IMG_0498

Ice Cappuccino 27k

Hans ordered this one, and he said to me that it’s too watery. Need improvement.

IMG_0509

Ice Chocolate drinks 27k

The ice chocolate was also too watery. Yup, too much water. I needed a creamy ice chocolate with rich texture and flavourful.

IMG_0510

Shaken Ice Tea Strawberry 25k

It’s just strawberry ice tea. Nothing special.

IMG_0514

Salted Egg Rice Bowl 45k

selection of roasts: Roast Pork | stemaed fragrant rice | scrambled egg | confit shitake mushroom | salted egg sauce

Love the roast pork. Love the texture of the rice also. But needed more flavour for the salted egg sauce. It’s creamy but we couldn’t find the salted egg sauce in the rice bowl. Too bad. It’s just like a pork rice bowl. Hope next time will be better.

IMG_0507 IMG_0508

Our XL Cheeseburger 65k

caramelized onion | 125 gram ground beef | mozarella and slice cheddar | sweet potato chips | sunny side up | bbq sauce | creamy mushroom | fresh lettuce

A little bit disappointed with the presentation. We thought the cheese was melted and the beef was super juicy. Turned out, it’s only slice cheddar and the beef was quite tasteless. Served with hand-cut fries, which also flavourless. *sobbing* It’s not just me. Hans also felt that way too. Well, maybe next time they will make it a better cheeseburger with melted cheese and super juicy beef. *praying hard*

IMG_0518 IMG_0520 IMG_0517

Cheese Loaded Meat Fries 45k

waffle potato fries | sous vide shredded beef | coriander leaf | jalapeno pickle | cheese sauce

Super love! This cheese loaded meat fries was exactly what’s in my mind. Flavourful shredded beef with perfect texture of the waffle potato fries. They have my permission to add the cheese sauce hahaha.. Super recommended!

IMG_0505 IMG_0506

Congratulations for the opening, Kata Kata. Sorry for my honest review, but I hope you can improve more. I will be back to try your other dishes. Congrats again!

The Seas Coffee Roastery at De Ploeit Centrale Pluit Jakarta

April 1st, 2017. After several places in Pluit, we stopped by at a gas station. Then we saw a building next to the gas station. It’s called De Ploeit Centrale. I knew there’s a coffee shop there, from my friend’s IG. I asked my hubby about it, and he said, “Ok, let’s go there. I’m hungry.” The Seas Coffee Roastery.

IMG_5750

Spacious place. They have outdoor and indoor area. They serve freshly roasted, grinded, and brewed coffee that originates from all over Indonesia, and also Western and Indonesian food. Now, let me give you my simple review about this one.

IMG_5762 IMG_5753 IMG_5757 IMG_5758 IMG_5756 IMG_5754

Ice Green Tea 20k

IMG_5761

Chocolate Smores Brulee 35k

My hubby was a fan. LOL. He said, “It’s really good.” Well for me, it’s too sweet. But for a sweet-tooth, it’s heaven hahaha..

IMG_5760

Original Chicken Rice Bowl 50k

Butered rice with fried chicken breast and veggies drizzled with our original sauce.

Delicious rice bowl. The tender fried chicken combined with fresh veggies. Fantastic. And the sunny side up was a great addition to the dish. The sauce was amazingly delicious. I had to fight for the dish with my hubby. And he’s the winner hahaha.. He loved this rice bowl. I could tell from his smiling face everytime he ate it.

IMG_5763 IMG_5764

Complimentary Waffles

Thank you so much for the complimentary waffles. It was super delicious. Love the texture of the waffles. Not too crispy and not too flabby. Love it. At first, I wanted hubby to finish my portion. But after one bite, I won’t share him my portion at all.

Hardware Lane at Pluit Jakarta

April 1st, 2017. Actually I planned to go to this new place on Sunday, but this morning, when I strew flowers with family at Ancol, my sister asked me to accompany her to the same place. So, we went to Pluit area and tried this new venue. Hardware Lane.

IMG_5718

Located at Pluit Indah Raya, it’s very easy to find it. Occupied a nice area, Hardware Lane will be one of my favourite place when in Pluit. Spacious parking area with comfortable ambiance inside the place. They also have and outdoor space for smoking area. Open kitchen concept, so we can see what they’re doing inside the kitchen. The people were very friendly. Funny thing, when I saw the chef, I asked the barista there, “Excuse me. Your Chef is quite familiar. Who is he?” And when he told me, I was like, “OMG! No wonder!” Hello Chef Ridwan. Long time no see. And turned out, he’s one of the owners. Nice job, Chef.

Ice Green Latte 40k

Love it! It’s very very good. Not too sweet and not too bitter. Just perfect for my taste bud.

IMG_5738

Ice Lychee Tea 33k

Nothing to complain.

IMG_5743

White 7 Oz 35k

A shot of espresso with 210ml of milk steamed up to 65C for maximum sweetness (latte/flatwhite)

My sister asked the barista to make it lighter. And it was very very light hahaha. It’s like latte with a hint of coffee. Even I prefer they made it stronger. LOL.

IMG_5739

Poutine 58k

French fries, sunny side up, streaky bacon or beef bacon, onion gravy, cheddar cheese sauce, cream cheese, fresh parsley.

We just had breakfast, so we chose to eat light. They told us that poutine is delicious but not pretty enough to be captured. Well, challenge accepted! Hahahaha. I ordered poutine and took pretty photos. LOL. Look below, please. Very pretty, right? And it was sure as can be, a delicious one. Love the texture of the french fries. It’s really good with the cheddar cheese sauce and cream cheese. And the sunny side up enhanced the creamy of the dish. I wish I could order white rice!! *big grin* And by the way, I need a bigger streaky bacon. Pretty please!

IMG_5742 IMG_5740 IMG_5744 IMG_5745

Overall, Hardware Lane is one recommended place to visit. Since they open at 7am, it’s really convenient for those early birds. Great job, Hardware Lane!
