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.

Love the latte. Rich texture and not too milky. I think I will be back for this latte.

Kintaro Sushi at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK Jakarta

June 3rd, 2017. I was invited to a restaurant in PIK Avenue. Since I will be coming around 2pm, I asked my hubby to keep me a company to several places before the restaurant. I heard about a new sushi place last week, I think. After went to 2 coffee shops, we visited Kintaro Sushi.

From Osaka to Jakarta. The 1st Custom Sushi in Indonesia. Serving 300++ traditional & fusion Japanese food with modern concept. That’s what written at their IG account. It’s nice to have a Japanese restaurant like this. When I came, the place was almost full. And I always love the friendly gesture from Japanese restaurant. The servers were nice and helpful. They surely have a lot of dishes. They helped me to choose which dish I should order. Well, back to the place, it’s not very spacious, but not small either. It’s just nice.

Aburi Moriawase 95k

So many options of sushi dishes, but my heart fell to this Aburi Moriawase. Consist of Salmon Aburi, Salmon Belly Aburi, Tuna Aburi, Tamago Aburi, Gyu Aburi and Unagi Aburi. They were all delicious. I love them all. Definitely will order another moriawase. They used fresh ingredients. And the presentation is very beautiful. Super recommended.

Kintaro Gyudon 95k

Love this Kintaro Gyudon. The beef is very tender. Melt in your mouth. And I love the aroma of the truffle. The onsen egg also played a great part in the dish. They complemented each other. It’s truly one of the best gyudon I’ve ever had.

Kintaro Gyu Kushi Katsu 180k

Ivan, the owner, recommended this one for us. And we were so grateful. Served with mini stone grill with 3 condiments: soy sauce, onion and tonkatsu sauce. How to eat this gyu kushi katsu? Dip the meat into the sauce, grill it for 3 seconds, and enjoy the sexy beef. OMG. Best one. Melt in my mouth. Next time, I won’t share!

Congratulations Kintaro. Thank you for your hospitality. Wish you all the best!

[REBRANDING] Chatelier Thinking Cup at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK

November 27th, 2016. I saw this new place a week before. Then, planned to visit the place. I know it’s not a coffee shop. It’s a tea house. Since, I didn’t find many tea house in Jakarta, I was excited to find a new one in PIK area. But I always loved tea. But my favourite was white tea, because for me it has a very light texture. Now, I present to you. Thinking Cup.

IMG_0249

Located at the corner of Ruko Garden House, Thinking Cup caught my attention right away. We walked from the previous cafe to this one. I went to this place with Gaby and Vrila. We waited for Leo there. Brian also stopped by to have a chit chat with us. About the ambiance. It’s a little bit similar with cafes around PIK. But they have this corners with OOTD material. Well, let’s see my simple review below.

IMG_0250 IMG_0255 IMG_0251 IMG_0254 IMG_0256 IMG_0252

Flower Tea Silver Needle 68k

White tea for me is sweet, light and very soothing. It’s all I need in a tea, I guess. We ordered only one drink because I think, they prefer coffee. Thinking Cup served manual brew. But, come on, it’s a tea house, not coffee shop. Let’s try the specialty, right? And it’s a really good tea. Fragrant, mellow, and delicate. Recommended.

Baihao Yinzhen (simplified Chinese: 白毫银针; traditional Chinese: 白毫銀針; pinyin: báiháo yínzhēn; pronounced [pǎi̯.xǎu̯ ǐn.ʈʂə́n]), also known as White Hair Silver Needle, is a white tea produced in Fujian Province in China. Amongst white teas, this is the most expensive variety and the most W, as only top buds (leaf shoots) are used to produce the tea. Genuine Silver Needles are made from cultivars of the Da Bai (Large White) tea tree family.

Social Affair Coffee & Bakehouse at Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK Jakarta

November 27th, 2016. Actually, I had a plan to have a staycation at Cikarang. But, it’s reschedule to mid December. And Gaby asked me to join her and Vrila to cafe hopping around Pantai Indah Kapuk. And I agreed without hesitation. Well, I asked permission from my hubby first, and he’s okay with that. Our first destination was a coffee shop, that I will blog later. Right now, I present to you our 2nd destination, the newest venue. Social Affair.

IMG_0230

Actually, I heard about this place from Hans. He asked me to join him when he come to the place. But, since Gaby and Vrila wanted to come that Sunday, I thought it’s ok for me to come again later with Hans. HAHAHA peace Hans. By the way, I found out that it’s Social Affair by Cacaote. They sell Cacaote’s cakes, for sure. But the place has a different ambiance from Cacaote. It’s quite spacious with long tables, sofas, cute spots for OOTD, big glass windows. It’s very bright and warm. A really nice place to do everything, I guess. I did my blogging there, and comfy enough to eat and chit chat with Gaby and Vrila.

Tropical 40k

pineapple, orange, apple, green apple

Gaby and Vrila loved it so much. Not me. Too much apple in it hahahaha..

Truffled Spaghetti 75k

chicken and mushroom with truffle cream and grana padano

“Best pasta ever!” Hahaha ok, too much. Well, it’s one of the best pasta, true. They spoiled us with the generous truffle cream. It’s so creamy I wanna cry. When it came to our table, I suddenly drooling. Hahaha. But I have to wait until we stopped taking pictures of it. The smell of the truffle was really hard to resist. And I was very happy because the texture of the spaghetti was just perfect for my taste bud. For 75k, it’s really worth the price. Big portion and super delicious.

Pork Belly Rice Bowl 85k

caramelized pork belly, 60 degree egg, sauteed pak choy, steamed rice

When Gaby asked me what I wanted to eat, I answered her right away, “Pork Belly Rice Bowl!” For me, pork belly is always the best dish for lunch. So, when a place had pork belly in their menu, I should try it. And I was very satisfied with Social Affair’s pork belly. It’s really delightful. The pork belly was tender and juicy. Unfortunately they ran out of pak choy, so they replaced it with mushroom. And I think I didn’t see any 60 degree egg. Hmmm.. I wonder.. Well, never mind. Now I wanna show you how to eat this rice bowl. I mixed all together, and I asked for the server to bring me a plate. LOL. Actually the bowl is different from any other bowl in other place. It’s a little bit like huge cone. So, it’s hard for me to eat with pleasure. That’s why I asked for a plate. And the result: @yennymakanmulu approved! *wink wink*

IMG_0242 IMG_0243

Chocolate Lava Croissant 35k

I looked at the glazy chocolate on top of a croissant, then nodded shortly when Gaby asked me about ordering this one. It’s really like a chocolate lava when Gaby cut the croissant. Melted! Melted! Melted! And if I said this croissant wasn’t good, I was absolutely a bad liar. Just looked at my empty plate and my chocolaty-messy mouth and fingers. YES! It’s finger-licking good!!

IMG_0241 IMG_0245 IMG_0246 IMG_0248

Thank you Social Affair for the wonderful moment you gave us. I will be back! I will!!! *poke Hans* LOL.

Meet and Eat Resto Beer and Coffee Pantai Indah Kapuk PIK

March 15, 2016. I was told by a friend of mine, there’s a new place in Pantai Indah Kapuk. So, that lovely Tuesday, after I went to several coffee shops around Pluit Muara Karang, I turned my direction to PIK. So, there we were. Meet and Eat.

IMG_3932

Located at Ruko Garden House, Meet and Eat is quite eye-catching with the white and green colour on the facade. But when you came inside to the place, it’s very homey and simple. The wooden furnitures added a comfortable place to eat with your family or buddies. They have 2 levels but I didn’t go to level 2. Just level 1. Let me give you a simple review about this place.

IMG_3924 IMG_3934 IMG_3923 IMG_3919 IMG_3918 IMG_3922

Meet and Eat served more western food. It’s very nice because in PIK it’s not that easy to find western food. But you can find asian food too there. I tried some food and ready to tell you about it.

SNACK & LIGHT BITES

Cheese Bomb 45k

Deep-fried bacon with mozzarella cheese

I think everybody ate this LOL. You can see on every blogger’s reviews. Hahaha. Well, just remember, eat this while still hot. You can imagine deep-fried bacon wrapped mozzarella cheese. Da bomb! Gooey texture with chewy cheese. Very addicting. A recommended appetizer.

IMG_3926

Spicy Potato Wedges 30k

Crisp potato wedges sprinkled with chopped parsley

It’s just like any other potato wedges. There’s no special in this dish. Not my order because I didn’t really like potato wedges. I prefer mashed potato. 🙂

Potato wedges are a variation of french fries. As their name suggests, they are wedges of potatoes, often large and unpeeled, that are either baked or fried. They are sold at diners and fast food restaurants.

IMG_3927

SPAGHETTI

Volcano Pasta 55k

Choice of pasta topped with spicy deep fried chicken karaage

It’s one of their new menu. But, as I suspected from the beginning when I heard the name, it was spicy. I didn’t eat much. It’s very spicy hahahaha.. Well, but you can adjust the spiciness level. You just tell the server to make it your own way. You can choose the pasta too. I could only eat the chicken karaage LOL. Good thing, it was delicious. 🙂

IMG_3928

STEAK

Boneless Crispy Chicken 75k

Extra crispy and peppery of juicy chicken leg with truffle sauce

It’s their signature dish. Juicy and tender chicken with sautéed baby potatoes sides and truffle sauce. I love it. Definitely best chicken steak ever. At first I thought it was an ordinary fried chicken. But after I tried the chicken, the texture amazed me. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. And the truffle sauce added such an seductive aroma to the chicken with earthy and rich flavour. OMG. I will be back only for experiencing another foodgasm from this dish. LOL.

IMG_3925

It was a really nice experience. It’s truly a place to meet and eat. Meet your buddies, and eat those delicious food. I, definitely, will be back to eat another dish from the menu. Wait for me!!
