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.

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.

Complimentary Bread


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!
