Agneya Restaurant at Wijaya Dharmawangsa Jakarta

December 7th, 2017. I knew about Agneya Restaurant around November when they just opened. So when I had a chance to visit the new place, I was very happy. We almost missed the place. Then I realized, it was previously a restaurant with bird cages in front of the place. Turned out that restaurant was closed, and Agneya replaced it.

I loved their facade. Beautiful with warm atmosphere. When I came in, I saw more beautiful corners inside. A host greeted me, and I asked her that is it ok to take photos there. And she said, “No, you can’t.” I was a little bit shocked. Then she said, “I will ask the owner. Just wait.” After a while, a man, maybe the manager, approached me and asked. I said, “I want to take photos for my blog. My personal blog.” He said, “You have to make an appointment first. I need to see the letter, something like agreement letter.” I was super shocked. “It’s just for my blog, sir.” Then, when he saw that I wanted to leave asap, he replied, “Ok you can take photos, but please don’t bother other people.” It was just us! No other customers at the time. Please deh! *rolling my eyes* And I never bother anybody when I took photos. Good thing, the servers were all nice and friendly. I felt welcomed.

Tahu Telor 76k

crisp omelette with bean curd, roasted peanut sauce, beansprout in soy sauce tinted with shrimp paste

We told them that we didn’t want a spicy tahu telor. We always got a spicy one, though we always told the people to make it not spicy. But this time, hooraaaaaaay, no spicy tahu telor! Well, maybe a lil bit. Just a lil bit. But, even, my hubby said it wasn’t spicy at all. And it was delicious. I was afraid they will give us “pecel sauce.” Good thing it wasn’t hahaha.. It’s really peanut sauce. So happy! We were practically fighting over the food LOL.

Nasi Goreng Ayam 76k

signature fried rice with chicken and egg baked under crispy cover, shallots and spices

Unique presentation. They put the fried rice in a big bowl, then an egg on top of the fried rice. Btw I ordered half-cooked sunny side up. And they failed to do that. I got cooked sunny side up. If it’s beef, I got the well-done instead of medium well. LOL. But I was too lazy to complaint at the time. Well, they put those rice and egg under crispy cover. Great thing, the fried rice was delicious. We were too full, so I took away the dish. After hours, I ate the rest of the rice, and it was still super good. Nice job Agneya.

Congratulations Agneya for the opening. Hope to try your other dishes, soon. Good luck!

Kopi Kotaku at Wijaya 1 Petogogan Jakarta

October 12th, 2017. Finally I could come to Kopi Kotaku. I heard about them before they opened. Sorry, forgot who gave me the information about them. They opened September 23rd, and I couldn’t come *sobbing* yeah, I was in Tangerang at the time. After Tangerang, I went to Singapore, then Pontianak. Well, finally today I came yaaaay.

When I arrived at the place, I fell in love with their simplicity. There’s one barista there. And he helped me to choose which coffee to order. Then, my eyes opened so wide when I saw there’s rice menu LOL. After ordered coffee and food, I went around the place to take photos. They have semi private room with 2 long tables and cold AC. Yes, I sat there. All by myself. Hahahaha. They also have smoking area at the back. It’s a really nice place.

Ice Daily KOTAKU 20k

Well, before I arrived, I thought that I have to try their es kopi susu. So I ordered this one. Well for me it’s a lil bit too milky. But it’s my fault. I told the barista to make it with more milk. That’s why, right? But, tasted so good. Maybe next time I tried the original dose. 馃檪

They have their croissant with the texture a bit dense. It’s not too crumbly. Not too sweet. Perfect almond croissant.

Twenty Fifth Coffee and Kitchen at Wijaya Kebayoran Baru Jakarta

February 18th, 2017. Six days after聽Le贸n, finally back to the place. But we’re not visiting聽Le贸n. This time, we visited the coffee shop, which located side by side at the same building. If you arrive at the building, to go to聽Le贸n, you must turn right. But, if you want to visit the coffee shop, turn left. Just a nice corner. 25th Coffee.

IMG_3631

I was planning聽to come here, actually. So when Gaby asked me to join her on that moody Saturday morning, I said yes. I took online car to come to the place. When I arrived, nobody’s there. I mean, no customer, except me. And I waited for Gaby to come, because we must discuss first what we should order, right? Actually I wanted to order everything, but my common sense wouldn’t allow it. LOL. They have smoking area inside the place. And I felt that the smoking area is cooler and prettier. When Gaby came and finished order, I chose to take photos at the smoking area, since no one’s there. Yaaaay. Let me show you around, then. Shall we?

Hot Piccolo 30k

They served the piccolo in a cute cup with unique saucer. I saw a difference at the spot for the cup. Instead on the center of the saucer, it was on the edge of the saucer. Well, I tried a sip of this piccolo. And I loved it. It’s just a perfect piccolo. Not too strong, not too milky, just right.

IMG_3647

Beef Puff 30k

The Beef Puff looked so appetizing. That’s why after Gaby picked the sweet ones, I chose this savoury one.聽Puff聽Pastry with ground聽beef聽filling, perfectly crispy and crunchy聽snack for that morning. Actually Vrila came later, and she got the first chance to try it. And, she loved it hahaha. I tried later and I agreed with her. It was very good. The pastry was in the perfect texture. The beef filling was quite generous and tasted good. What a great snack to start our Saturday date.

Cronut Peanut Passion 30k

When I saw this cronut on the pastry bar, I was intrigued when I saw they use peanut and passion. Hmm.. must be peanut butter and passion fruit. I love peanut butter. Well, not from long time ago. I just found out that peanut was one of the most delicious thing to be a peanut butter jam. Cronut wasn’t new thing actually, but it’s good to eat cronut after all this time. Flawless texture with perfect combination of sweet and sour taste.

Hazelnut Chocolate Cake 35k

The texture of this cake looked dry. And I was so ready for a dry cake hahaha.. Turned out, it was delicious! No dry at all. It’s moist and tasted really good. Hazelnut and chocolate were the best combination ever. Well, for me, chocolate cake was always a good idea. It was a nice treat to start your day or end your night. Recommended!

At first, I didn’t wanna try this quesadilla at all, but all my friends said that it was delicious. And it was indeed delicious.聽The chicken was smooth and tasty. The cheddar cheese mixed perfectly with the guacamole and sour cream. I聽gobbled it up without a fuss.

MAINS

Roasted Half Chicken 105k

24-hour marinated Peri peri chicken, roasted vegetables, tomato salsa, Thai chilli dipping sauce

The chicken was a little bit dry, but I love the peri peri sauce. It was spicy but very tasty. The roasted vegetables were also good, eggplant was my favourite, of course. Didn’t try the dipping sauce at all since the chicken had already appetizing.

Piri piri sauce聽(used as a seasoning or marinade) is Portuguese in origin and “especially prevalent in Angola, Namibia, Mozambique and South Africa”. It is made from crushed chillies, citrus peel, onion, pepper, salt, lemon juice, bay leaves, paprika, pimiento, basil, oregano, and tarragon.

Short Ribs 145k

Vietnamese BBQ-marinated boneless ribs, green chilli soy dipping sauce, gochujang

Most scrumptious dish! I love the taste of the boneless ribs. It was sweet聽and savoury with wonderful flavours.聽聽Lip-smacking good.聽Happiness all around the table. The ribs聽were superbly tender but not falling apart. The sauce was so splendid you didn’t want to miss a drop. Super recommended. Topnotch!

Gochujang is a savory, spicy, and pungent fermented Korean condiment made from red chili, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, and salt.

IMG_3436 IMG_3437

Duck Platter 140k

Roasted boneless half duck, nuoc cham, cilantro, mint, green salad, served with steamed rice

The duck looked so delicious. On second thought, it was just okay for my taste bud. Hoping for more tender duck, I only ate one piece and let my friends ate the rest. Although the skin was fantastic, I still prefer juicier meat. The steamed rice was delectable with great texture.

N瓢峄沜 ch岷 is a common name for a variety of Vietnamese “dipping sauces” that are served quite frequently as condiments. It is commonly a sweet, sour, salty, savoury and/or spicy sauce.

SIDES

Mac n’ Cheese 40k

Delicious side dish. My friends thought it was mediocre taste, but I loved it. I tasted a better one, but this one was also good for my palate. For a side dish, the portion was just nice. Definitely will order it again and won’t take picture of it so I know how it taste when still warm.

IMG_3427 IMG_3428 IMG_3440
