Bean It!  Smile Sep 15, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Barat | Kafe | Kumpul Keluarga

Hey Guys! I'm back here. Well, I got a new review to catch up, and it's actually about Bean It. Yap, the place is just located not more than a kilo from my house. It's still near my neigbourhood and apparently it is just a couple of houseshops away from Ninotchka. Yep, it's in Sixth Avenue, Citra Garden 6. If you know Taman Palem Lestari, Citra Garden is just exactly behind it. It's a quite nice complex with beautiful houses.

 

 
I happened to buy Bean It's voucher from a website, and without me knowing the cafe, I just decided to go with it. So I bought two vouchers with each voucher got 1 drink and 1 toast. So, just a week ago, I decided to use my voucher there.

From the outside, Bean It is quite a nice little cafe. It looked very simple, without too many decorations. Just simply Bean It Signboard, and from the outside, you can see a couple of chairs plus tables at the outside. For people who wish to smoke, sitting outside is a better choice. And usually at night, the air outside is much better. The other sitting area is indoor. Once you open the door, you can see a small coffee bar with the coffee makers. The indoor room is quite small, since this cafe is only one shophouse. But it's still comfortable though, without many decorations too. The visitors that time were about 2-3 groups of teenagers. We got our seats at the corner of the room. Just next to us, there is a small cabinet with a lot of books in it. You can always take the book and read it there. But of course you can't take it home. lol It's like an extra facility for visitors.
In the indoor, there is also an LCD TV for visitors' entertainment. But usually, the teenagers are here to talk or play cards with friends. It's like a place for them to hang around.
If I'm not mistaken, there's a seating area too on the upper floor, but I'm not sure. I saw people coming down from the second floor.

The service here was pretty fine. And I think the waiter who served us was nice, with less experiences maybe. That's why when he served us, he looked a bit reserved, somehow looked confused. lol But like I said, he was nice to us. We were also informed that they had cake promotion that day. With only by purchasing a slice of their cake, we could get an extra drink, Tropical Mango. And apparently I was interested in the Red Velvet, so I went with it. lol Then I gave my vouchers, and they confirmed that it was usable. So yeay, let's just wait for all the dishes! Oh ya, we also ordered extra side dish. We ordered Potato Wedges for our snacks. ;)

Bean It is actually a quite "young" cafe. I think it hasn't opened for long, so not many people know the place. Lately it offers a lot of promotion via a couple of promo websites. Bean It focuses more on beverages, and for the food, they don't have that many choices. They offers Appetizers such as several choices of fries, Nuggets, Fish Tofu, and something similar, then Ala Carte such as BBQ Bratwurst Sausage with Potato Selection, Pancakes, and Toasts. The price range is IDR 12 k - IDR 45 k. It's quite affordable if I could say.
For beverages, they offers quite a lot of choices. From Espressos, Teas, Chocolates, Frappetier, Non-Coffee Drinks, Juices, and even Beer. You can add extra topping for your drink with extra IDR 2.5 k.The price range for the beverages is IDR 5 k - IDR 25 k.

Let's see our food and beverages. ;)
~ French Toast Choco & Cheese ~
Price: IDR 12 k
This is a Toast with butter, milk, chocolate inside and outside, and generous grated cheese outside. Well, I didn't expect to get a very generous Toast from Bean It since I knew my place right, I meant, I used a voucher, and most restaurants gave us less portion of that something on the deal. But Bean It still managed to give us a fair portion of the Toast. The grated cheese really was more than enough for us. The toast was quite good, of course with that abundant of cheese. For cheese lovers, you might just simply love it. And for toast lovers, you might love it too. The price was very cheap.

 
~ Coffee Latte ~
Price: IDR 14 k
I think this is Cafe Latte from Bean It. I dunno which one is right, or that actually maybe both are the same, but the drink was quite nice. It was a mixed of thick espresso and milk/cream. It was quite nice honestly. The espresso was good, The bitterness suited the drink well, and only with additional liquid sugar, it became quite nice. For a very cheap price like this, Bean It is very generous. Love the latte. ;) Anyway, we ordered one Cold Coffee Latte and one Hot Coffee Latte. The cold one was better than the hot one, IMHO! ;)

 

 
~ Red Velvet ~
Price: IDR 25 k
This cake is the same Red Velvet which is trending for the moment. Yeah, Bean It seemed to follow the trend too, and they actually provided two cakes, Red Velvet and Chocolate something. But of course I decided to try this one. This cake was not very good to be honest. The cake seemed a bit too dry, too dense, and it tasted like it had been in the freezer for quite some time. The cheese cream was quite better. Without the cream, this Red Velvet would be very bad. But anyway, lucky when I purchased it, there was a promo for extra drink. It wasn't a real waste then.

 
~ Tropical Mango ~
Price: IDR 15 k
This is the free stuff. And yep, it's a blended juice. I don't know if this actually a fresh juice or not, but it tasted quite nice. The mango was fragrant, which was quite refreshing. It was iced blended, and that made the drink even nicer. It was quite sour too which came from the mango. Well, it wasn't disappointing. smile

 
~ Potato Wedges ~
Price: IDR 13 k
This was the best for the day. The original stuff! tongue Back to potato wedges, and it really was good. we always love Wedges anyway. It was quite cheap! And the portion, again, was generous. The wedges was fried to a great crunchiness on the outside, but still quite fleshy in the inside. With a dip of chili sauce, it made our day! lol haha

 
Well, yap, that was all for that day. We were very full after the visit, and we couldn't even finish all of our Coffee Latte. It's nice that they let me take the rest home. I got a plastic cup (usually for take away), and I poured my Coffee Latte there. Yeay!
We didn't feel disappointed at all buying the vouchers. The price for the vouchers was cheap too, with only IDR 13.5 k each, we could get 1 Coffee Latte and 1 Choco and Cheese French Toast. See? ;)
My final say is, Bean It is quite a nice restaurant, and I think it's located in the wrong place. Around here, cafes usually don't last too long, since the target customers were very limited. Maybe if they find a better place, like the south, they might be much better. But well, that's just me saying. lol But I hope they will succeed though. I kinda like the place, and certainly will come back for hanging around when I want to.
You guys should check the place out if you visit this area, cause maybe you will enjoy the place. ;)

I'm done! So, see ya later people! Thanks for reading my reviews!
lol

Cute Little Cafe! Smile Sep 14, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Barat | Kafe | Steak & Grills | Pizza & Pasta | Halal

Hi People! Just this Friday evening, I went to a new cafe in Pantai Indah Kapuk. Well, it's The Twig Cafe and I'd fallen in love with it when I first saw it a few weeks ago. And that time, when My sis and her friend decided that we should pay it a visit. Well, we did!

The Twig Cafe is a cafe with a very nice concept. The interior and exterior are simply appealing. The exterior looks very nice with simplicity from the outside. While the inside, The Twig Cafe is much more complex, but nicer. Girls will say that the place is very cute. But in my opinion, the indoor represents an elegance. Yeah, it's mostly covered in white, with some use of mirror glasses. There are 3 areas for customers to choose. There is an outdoor area, with standard seats and tables. For those who want to smoke, maybe the outdoor will be a suitable choice. While for the indoor, there are two areas, the first floor and the second floor. The first floor is very nice. Like I said, it is covered in white, and some mirror glasses made it nicer. Kinda classy and elegant. At the end of the room, you will find their operation area. Well, I meant the display bar or something like clean kitchen. In the display storage, you can see a couple of cute cupcakes there. Well, it certainly is salivating. The decoration for this room is pretty good. It's designed well indeed.
For the second floor, there is a surprise. Well, you can actually find a cute boutique that sells clothes for women. The boutique looks very nice and girly. Quite oldies too, in a good way. The seating area is pretty small here since the space is limited. The interior in the second floor is pretty different from the first floor. Still nice, but I think might be a little too merry for the limited space. They have this decorations on the wall, the wall on the right is decorated with some sort of classic doors (not real! lol) and the wall on the left side, the one we sat by, is decorated with classic windows and simple windows with dark colours. At the end of the room, there is a wash basin, for customers to wash their hands. It's designed uniquely, again with classic big mirror. The bathroom is just behind the wash basin. Anyway, the only thing I can give as an input is the lighting on the second floor. It is not bright. I think it's better to put more lights on the second floor. lol

Here's a snap of the 'kitchen'. Too bad I couldn't attach more photos here. smile

 
For the service, The Twig Cafe really was very good. The waiters and waitresses were very polite, yet friendly. They were very attentive to our needs. When we asked about the food we were curious about, he could answer correctly (I assume it's correct lol), and we were very satisfied with their service. Since we were sitting on the second floor where no others sat, we thought it would be hard to call for the waiters when we needed their help. But apparently, one waiter was always there with us, standing by just in case we needed help. Nice right? ;) Keep it up guys. The Twig Cafe really provided us a great care. It certainly is one of the best diner with great service. smile

Well, for the food and drinks, we could find quite a lot of choices. Since we came there at around 5 in the evening, we were not really hungry. We were just curious about their food and we heard some rumours about how good their food was. So we just tried ordering a couple of dishes. They offers a lot of dishes, from Appetizers, Pastas, Gourmet Sandwiches, Rice dishes, and Desserts like Cupcakes and some other dishes like Creme Brulee, Chocolate Molten Cake and Bananas Go Bahamas! Some of them are recommended by the cafe (shown by the star symbol). For drinks, you can find coffees, teas or maybe some blended drinks. Beers are available too.
The price range for food is IDR 28 k - IDR 95 k, and I think it's quite reasonable. You can find the recommended BBQ Spare Ribs for just about IDR 95 k. lol For the Cupcakes, each cupcake is just about IDR 20 k (The Red Velvet Cupcakes looked so good!). For the desserts, the price range is IDR 15 k - IDR 35 k.
For beverages, the price starts from IDR 8 k - IDR 110 k. Well, the drinks are certainly quite reasonable. The Iced Tea (Sweet/Plain) is just IDR 8 k, and at least the Iced Tea is not IDR 20 k ++ like some other places. tongue

Let's check out their food.
~ Jambalaya Rice ~
Price: IDR 43 k
This is actually one of the recommended food here. I went for it, and eventually I was served with Butter Rice with some sort of tomatoes sauce 9and toppings). The topping was quite generous though, there were prawns, chicken chunks and slices of sausage. So this whole dish was quite similar to bolognaise sauce, except for the salsa kind of sensation. So I guess it was like a combination of salsa and bolognaise. But anyway, the taste was great! It was delicious. I kinda hate the prawns, but I love the chicken chunks and sausages. If you love tomato sauce, you will love this.

 
~ Grilled Chicken Salad ~
Price: IDR 38 k
Grilled Chicken Salad is exactly as its name suggests. It is a bed of shredded lettuces (with red leaf lettuces as well), served with Grilled Chicken Fillet. The salad was without dressing, or at least I didn't realize it had dressing on it. lol Well, but the lettuces were very fresh and tasty when ate with the grilled chicken. The Grilled Chicken itself was quite nice. It had the smoky flavor from the grilling process. It was the breast part, that's why it was very meaty, without fat at all. I think this salad is very suitable for healthy people, especially if you're on a diet. ;)

 
~ The Twig's Sandwich ~
Price: IDR 55 k
This sandwich isn't mine, and apparently it looked very good. It was tasty according to my sis's friend. The brioche was crunchy-ish, and the beef patty was delicious while the bacon was fragrant. It is said that the beef patty was home-made.

 
~ Cold Cappuccino ~
Price: IDR 23 k
This Cold Cappuccino is mine. I ordered it since I am always fond of it. It was served in a cute looking glass (but the glass is common though). The portion of the cappuccino wasn't too big. But anyway, the taste of Cappuccino is what matters. The Cappuccino here apparently wasn't that good. Only an okay. The Cappuccino seemed a bit bland, and at first it was too bitter. But we asked for sugar though. The coffee inside wasn't mixed well enough with the cream, so it made the whole drink only an okay. Not memorable. But this is not a big concern. smile

 
~ The Twig's Frozen Toffee ~
Price: IDR 25 k
This is not my order too. Well, my sis's friend 9and of course my friend too lol) order this. She said that this drink had the caramel liquid, so when she drank it, it had that sticky sweet sensation. According to her, this beverage was good.

 
~ Hot Cafe Mocha ~
Price: IDR 20 k
And this another one that my sis's friend's husband ordered. tongue To sweeten the drink, the waiter gave us a bottle of sugar, so that we could put the amount of sugar we desired.

 
~ Iced Tea ~
Price: IDR 8 k
The Iced Tea was served in a jar-look-alike-glass. It's quite cute and the tea was nice. Quite common I guess, so I have nothing to say.

 
Nb. Service Charge: 5%; Tax: 10%

The place certainly is very nice and comfortable. I especially love the first floor. It's the nicest one among all seating areas they have. I love our food, and I certainly is curious about their cakes and desserts. Maybe next time, I'll have to come and try them. But for this visit, we were quite full already. Other than that, the facility you can get here is free wifi connection and also LCD TV for customers entertainment.

And oh yeah, they actually had this "Lucky Dip" promo, and the waitress told us about it when we asked for the bill. So with minimum purchase of IDR 200 k (which we have achieved) we could get a chance to draw a dip. We drew one dip, and we got Cookies! Too bad I couldn't attach the photo of the cookies here. Well, anyway thanks The Twig Cafe for that. ;)

Last words, I think you guys should come and check this place out. The Twig Cafe certainly is unique, serves good food and desserts, plus the prices are reasonable. I'd love to come back here some other time. smile

So, thanks for reading my reviews, and see ya another time! Ciao.

Ayam Goreng Kukuk! :9 Smile Sep 14, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Restaurant | Kumpul Keluarga

Hey OpenRicers! I'm here again, dan kali ini saya mau mereview salah satu cafe/restaurant yang ada didekat rumah saya, Taman Palem Lestari ini. Namanya Ayam Goreng Kukuk. Kalau kalian awalnya mengenal Ayam Goreng Kukuk di Palem berupa rumahan, yang ada agak dibelakang, nah yang itu sudah tutup. Dan akhirnya sekarang dia berkembang menjadi sebuah restaurant yang dibuka masih dalam kompleks yang sama, cuma berbeda lokasi. Boleh dibilang saya cuma butuh ngesot 5 menit agar bisa sampai ke Ayam Goreng Kukuk. Cuma diruko sebrang jalan saja. lol

 
Nah, karna Ayam Goreng Kukuk sekarang sudah berupa resto, tentunya interior maupun exterior sudah di'dandan'in sebaik mgkn. Kalau dilihat dari luar, dia emang tidak terlalu besar. Hanya berupa sebuah ruko saja. Di atasnya terdapat signboard gede dengan nama restoran ini. Lambangnya itu ayam yang berwarna hitam yah, dan itu sudah menjadi logonya sejak dl. Dari luar, ruangan Kukuk terlihat sangat nyaman, dengan mostly interior berbahan woody yang membuat penampilannya terlihat simple namun nyaman. Lightingnya bahkan ditata sebaik mungkin, dengan menggunakan lampu yang yellow-ish, dan ruangan jadi terkesan warm dan private. Jumlah meja kursi yang tersedia dilantai satu, tergolong cukup lumayan. Di ujung ruangan, tersedia dapur dan kasir.

 
Well, sistem pembelian di Kukuk ini adalah memesan dikasir, dan membayarkannya terlebih dahulu. Kemudian pesanan akan di proses dan akhirnya mereka akan ngebawakan pesanan kita ke meja kita. Ehm, mgkn kalau menurut saya, ini merupakan sistem yang cukup bagus juga yah. Jadinya prosesnya lebih tertata rapi aja. Bayar dulu, baru dapat makanan. Kasir yang melayani cumanya terkesan agak cuek dan tidak murah senyum. Entah kenapa, sepanjang pemesanan, ada aja kesalahan input order dari kami dan dia tidak terlihat sungkan sama sekali. Well, again, that's not a big problem for this kind of resto. Anyway, saya memesan 2 paket makanan, satu ayam dan satu iga, serta Es Teh dan Jus Sirsak. Yap, disini menjual mostly paketan yah yang mungkin akan lebih memudahkan pelanggan dalam membeli. Harga disini juga tidak terlalu mahal kok, dan boleh dikatakan reasonable. Namun porsinya juga cukup sederhana. Saya membayar sekitar IDR 50ribuan untuk makanan dan minuman pesanan saya diatas. Berarti sekitar IDR 20 k - IDR 30 k untuk per orangnya.

Ayam Goreng Kukuk itu menjual beragam masakan Indonesia sih. Yang paling mudah ditemui tentunya makanan dengan bahan Ayam, seperti Ayam Goreng kukuk, Ayam Bakar dan sejenisnya. Selain itu, disini juga sudah banyak makanaan lainnya, termasuk Iga Bakar loh. Makanya jadinya kita lebih banyak pilihannya sekarang. Bukan hanya tempat yang berubah jadi lebih baik, menu makanan yang ditawarkan pun lebih bervariasi.

Okay, let's see the food that we ordered that time.
~ Pakuk 3 ~
Price: IDR 16.5 k
Kita bisa memilih tipe ayamnya dalam paket ini, dan kebetulan yang dipilih cc saya itu Ayam Goreng. Selain itu, dalam paket ini juga sudah termasuk satu tempe, dan nasi putih. Tentunya lalapan sederhana juga ada yah. Sambal sudah tersedia terpisah kok dalam botolan dan sambalnya memang enak banget kalau saya bilang. Pedasnya wah dan rasanya okeh bgt. Biasanya saya hanya perlu menambahkan kecap manis sedikit. Kalau untuk ayamnya sendiri, agak kecil yah. Tapi rasanya cukup enak kok. Ayam gorengnya itu gurih, sedikit crunchy karna di goreng kering banget. Makanya enak kok. Kalau tempenya sih biasa sekali yah. Gak terlalu mempengaruhi. But overall, nice!

 
~ Paknyet 2 ~
Price: IDR 28.5 k
Untuk pesanan satu ini, saya memang sengaja memilihnya karna pgn nyoba Iga Penyetnya. Dulunya sih pas dirumaha, Kukuk tidak menjual Iga Penyet, dan skarang sih dia sudah menawarkan Iga Penyet, mgkn karna trend juga yah dan banyak demandnya. Ternyata ketika datang, dan mencobanya, Iga Penyetnya lumayan loh. Sayangnya lagi-lagi iga penyetnya agak kecil. Buat saya sendiri sih (perut karet) nga ngenyangin banget. Alhasil dirumah hrs makan lagi dah. lol Tapi kalau soal rasa, iga bakarnya itu wangi banget dengan kadar kematangnya yang nga overcooked. Makanya iganya masi lembut banget. Dibeberapa bagian, lemak iganya banyak banget dan saya suka banget bagian itu. Kalau untuk sambal penyetnya juga cukup lumayan yah, serupa dengan beberapa kompetitornya sih. Enak dan recommended menurut saya. :9

 
~ Jus Sirsak ~
Price: IDR 9 k
Disini ternyata disediakan jus Sirsak loh. Karna katanya sih Sirsak emang berkhasiat, makanya cc pesan. Saya sih terus terang nga suka sirsak yah, dan kalau menurut saya, sirsak rasanya agak aneh-aneh gimana gt. lol #JustSaying Saya sih nga minum Sirsak ini sama sekali, tapi kata cc dan mama, rasanya cukup fresh dan mgkn agak terlalu banyak airnya aja. Jadi kurang kental. Saya sih nga ngerti dah Jus Sirsak seharusnya kayak apa yah, jadi saya ngangguk2 saja. ^^

 
~ Es Teh ~
Price: IDR 3 k
Es tehnya cukup standard yah, dan cuma es nya kurang banget itu. Sesampai di meja saya, hanya beberapa menit, esnya sudah meleleh semua. -..- Jadinya nga terlalu dingin deh. lol

 
Kunjungan saya kesini cukup nice kok, dan sudah beberapa kali saya ke sini. Makanan mereka enak-enak dan harganya nga membuat kantong bolong. Jadi ketika mama papa nga masak, tinggal cuss ke seberang buat makan disana. Yang terkenal dari si Kukuk itu sebenarnya adalah Ayam goreng Kukuknya langsung. Rasanya cukup unik.
Buat yang menyukai masakan sejenis yang ala Indonesia, sepertinya bisa datang buat mencobai makanan disini. Tapi yah kalau jauh tinggalnya, susah juga yah. lol Tapi kalau buat penghuni di sekitar Taman Palem Lestari, Citra Garden dan sekitarnya, sepertinya sih boleh banget buat datang makan malam bersama keluarga bila belum pernah cobain. Suasana tempatnya cukup nyaman, dan saya rasa tepat buat makan malam keluarga yah. Atau makan siang juga sih. ;)
Overall, Ayam Goreng Kukuk is really a nice restaurant and I think OpenRicers might want to try their food. Feel free to come and dine in.
Oh ya, Ayam Goreng Kukuk juga menyediakan jasa delivery buat diantar sekitarnya loh. Untuk detailnya, silahkan hubungi nomor telpnya. ;)

See ya OpenRicers! Have a Nice day!

Japanese Bakery in PIK! Smile Sep 14, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Jepang | Roti & Kue | Halal

Holla OpenRicers, baru beberapa minggu lalu, saya mengunjungi daerah Pantai Indah Kapuk. Yang awalnya saya tidak berencana berkuliner disini, akhirnya malah menyempatkan diri untuk mengunjungi salah satu bakery yang berexterior lucu. Namanya adalah Provence Bakery & Cafe. And dari namanya aja kita sudah tau kalau dia bukan merupakan Bakery biasa, namun juga merupakan sebuah cafe yang unik. Well, let's see about Provence more!

 
Kalau diliat dari tempatnya, Provence ini sangat menarik yah, dan terus terang itu alasannya mengapa saya memutuskan mengunjungi Bakery ini padahal biasanya saya kurang suka roti dan sejensianya yah (kecuali cake) lol
Provence sendiri terdiri dari satu ruko di sebarisan Rukan Crown Golf. Di luarnya terpampang signboard menarik yah dan cukup catchy. Trus di bagian luarnya juga tersedia tempat duduk dan meja-meja yang berjejer rapi serta di tutupi dengan sejenis kain yang bermotif strip putih orange. setelah melewati bagian luarnya yang ditata "smart", saya pun masuk ke dalam ruangan melewati pintu putih. Didalamnya ternyata ruangan tidak begitu besar, dan kita bisa langsung melihat area kasirnya. Di sebelah kanan kita bisa menemukan area displaynya, dan disitu penuh berisikan aneka roti-rotian. Di dekat pintu sendiri juga ada rak display, dan disitu berisikan roti signature mereka yang sesuai kata dari waitress-nya, merupakan best seller dari Provence.

 
Provence Bakery and Cafe ini merupakan sebuah Japanese Bakery yang sudah ada di luar negeri. Dan katanya, bagi penggemar roti, tentu sudah mengenal nama dari Provence. Provence sendiri sudah tersebar di banyak mall-mall besar di Singapura. Roti-roti dari Provence bakery & Cafe ini dikatakan tidak menggunakan bahan kimia ataupun bahan pengawet. Semua bahan yang digunakan dalam pembuatan roti ini murni alami dan dibuat fresh setiap hari.

Seperti yang saya bilang, Provence memiliki produk andalannya, yakni Wassant yang terdiri dari dua pilihan, Cream Custard dan juga Cokelat. Saya kebetulan membelinya pas berkunjung kesini. Selain itu, juga banyak roti-roti unik lainnya yang berkualitas di Provence. Outlet di PIK ini adalah yang pertama di Indonesia dan dikelola langsung oleh Master Baker dari Jepang.

Untuk harga roti-roti ini berkisar dari IDR 5 k - IDR 38 k.
Kebetulan pas saya disana, saya sempat bertanya apakah mereka menyediakan cakes disana, dan ternyata mereka tidak menyediakannya. Jadi semua bener-bener pastries. lol

Dalam pelayanannya di kunjungan tersebut, para waitresses dan waitersnya semua sangat ramah dan baik. Mereka juga paham dengan produk-produk yang mereka tawarkan, dan sempat menawarkan kami Wassant yang ternyata bener-bener enak. Namun mgkn saja ada sedikit kekurangannya, dimana dalam ruangannya yang agak kecil itu, sepertinya ada terlalu banyak waiters dan waitresses. Jadi rasanya pas memilih roti, banyak mata tertuju pada kita. lol Sebenarnya bukan masalah sih, cuma agak ga nyaman aja memilihnya. Saya ampe lupa mengambil struk pembelian saya, dan tidak ingat harga masing-masing roti (bahkan beberapa namanya). haha. Tapi mereka sangat baik-baik kok, serius. smile

Okay deh, langsung saya bahas aja yah makanannya.

~ Wassant (Chocolate) ~
Price: Approximately IDR 19.5 k
Dalam satu bungkus wassant ini, saya mendapatkan 4 wassant, dan kebetulan saya memilih yang coklat. Tapi sebenarnya tersedia juga kok yang isi 8. Roti ini sangat unik banget. Dan nga heran menjadi andalan Provence. Roti ini sangat empuk banget, dan terkesan "basah", tapi tetap soft dan lembut. Ketika digigit, rotinya ini tidak akan berasa lengket digigi. Kalau soal rasa, memang luar biasa yah, apalagi bagi kalian pecinta roti. Wangi cokelatnya samar-samar tapi pas banget, sehingga ga terasa berlebih. didalamnya itu nga ada fillingnya kok, cokelatnya sudah di "fused" dalam balutan rotinya. Sangat recommended!

 
~ Curry Doughnut ~
Price: Approximately IDR 12 k
Roti Goreng ini cukup unik yah rasanya. Isinya merupakan campuran daging (ayam) dengan rasa curry, dan boleh dikatakan ini cukup unik yah. Lagi-lagi yang menjadi andalannya ini adalah empuknya tekstur roti tersebut. Meski digoreng, roti ini tidak berminyak sama sekali. Bagian luar roti terasa sedikit garing (bukan bener-bener garing yah) dan wangi, dan didalamnya cincangan kentang dengan wangi curry membuat roti ini makin enak lagi. Pacar saya kebetulan kurang suka wangi kari, makanya akhirnya dia nga makan. Tapi saya suka sekali dengan roti ini.

 
~ Proseperity Bun ~
Price: Approximately IDR 8 k
Nama satu ini agak unik yah, dengan nama Prosperity Bun. Di dalamnya ini adalah isi Kacang Merah yang sudah berbentuk pasta (paste). Anyway, Ini merupakan roti yang super empuk. Sampai dirumah, rotinya sudah agak menyusut dan berkeriput sedikit (tandanya tadi baru aja dibuat yah), dan untungnya pas dimakan, roti ini tetap super enaknya. Suka banget dengan isi red bean paste yang berasa banget serta diberikan cukup banyak. Yum! I'll definitely want to have more!

 
~ Sausage and Cheese ~
Price: Approximately IDR 8 k
Nah kalau yang satu ini, saya hanya sempat nyicip sedikit, karna dimakan pacarku. Setelah saya icip, ini yang paling berbeda dari ketiga roti tersebut. Rotinya tetap empuk, namun toppingnya itu cukup banyak potongan sosis ayamnya, dan cheesenya cukup melimpah diatasnya. Tapi kalau saya bandingkan dengan yang diatas, saya masih lebih suka ketiga roti diatas ini yah ntah mengapa. Mungkin karna yang ini sudah agak biasa dan bisa ditemukan di banyak tempat. lol

 
Lagi-lagi sayangnya, saya tidak mengecek adanya ketersediaan wifi disini atau tidak. Harusnya sebagai sebuah cafe juga, mungkin Provence menyediakan wifi kali yah. Tapi nanti lain kali, saya akan kesana buat cek dan update disini.
Untuk lokasi-nya, dia sebarisan dengan Bangi Kopitiam di PIK, dan menurut saya sih interior dan desainnya bagus yah. Saya juga menyukai roti-rotinya tentunya, dan seperti yang saya katakan, semua roti yang saya cobai itu enak-enak dan empuk bgt. Buat OpenRicers yang belom sempat nyobain roti-roti di Provence, saya rasa wajib datang buat nyoba. Apalagi bagi pecinta roti, Provence bener-bener nyediain roti-roti yang berkualitas. Jangan takut soal bahan pengawet dan bahan-bahan yang tidak alami, karna Provence 100% menggunakan bahan natural dan tidak menggunakan pengawet kok. Semua roti-roti disini freshly made everyday!
Jadi tunggu apalagi OpenRicers, datang ke Provence dan buktikan sendiri kelezatan roti-roti di Provence!
\(^^)/

Thanks for reading & see ya OpenRicers! ;)

Coffee World! OK Sep 14, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Kedai Kopi & Teh

Hi OpenRicers! I'm going to write a review again about a coffee shop in Pacific Place. Well, you might know it, but you might not. It's called Coffee World, which is a chain Coffee Shop, but you can't find that many in Indonesia. Well, in other countries, Coffee World is pretty famous, especially in Thailand and some other countries. Me myself, have seen some of the outlets, but never really got attracted to go inside. If I'm not mistaken, I visited another outlet of Coffee World before, but it was a long time ago and I couldn't even remember about it. So well, here I was again, about months ago.

 
Coffee World memang merupakan sebuah coffee shop yang cukup okeh sebenarnya. Menyajikan banyak minuman, Coffee World cukup mengundang banyak penikmat kopi. Pas kunjungan saya waktu itu, Coffee World cukup ramai tempatnya. Saya tertarik masuk yah karna salah satu promonya yang menarik, yaitu Blueberry Yogurt Frappe. Saya pun mencoba masuk akhirnya dan eventually, memesan minuman tersebut ditambah satu minuman panas lagi buat papa saya.

Coffee World menawarkan beberapa ragam minuman, di mulai dari minuman panas seperti Minuman Kopi (Cappuccino, Latte, Caramel Machiato dan Americano), Minuman Chocolate (Hot Chocolate dan Chocpuccino) ataupun Teh (Japanese Green Tea, Green Tea Latte dan Flavor Tea lainnya). Harga minuman tersebut berkisar dari IDR 14.5 k - IDR 42 k termasuk ukuran kecil (Presto), sedang (Pro), dan juga besar (Alto). Beberapa minuman tidak tersedia ukuran Alto-nya.
Untuk minuman dingin, tersedia juga Minuman Kopi serupa, Minuman Chocolate yang serupa juga, Minuman Teh, maupun pilihan Frappe yang unik seperti Almond Frappe, CW Royal Frappe, atau Hazelnut Latte Frappe. Untuk Chocolate/Cream Frappe, tersedia Butter Scotch Frappe, Strawberry Cheese Cake Frappe, atau French Vanilla Frappe. Harga minuman dingin tersebut berkisar antara IDR 16 k sampai IDR 46 k dengan hanya dua ukuran saja, Alto dan Supremo.
Selain minuman, mereka juga menyediakan sedikit makanan-makanan buat menjadi cemilan pengunjung.

Kalau soal tempatnya sih nga terlalu gimana juga yah. Saya rasa dari luar, tempatnya terlihat nyaman juga. Namun kalau di bagian dalam, seperti ada area yang sedang di renovasi gitu, makanya rasanya kurang nyaman. Tempat duduknya ada yang tersedia sofa dan tempat duduk biasa. Untunglah ketika kita tiba, pengunjung yang duduk di sofa bagian luar, sudah bersiap meninggalkan Coffee World, jadi kita bisa langsung duduk disana deh. Lebih nyaman disana karna lebih terang daripada didalam ruangan Coffee World, dan juga kita sekaligus bisa melihat pengunjung mall lalu lalang.

 

 
Pelayanannya cukup bagus yah, dan standard lah seperti Coffee Shop lainnya. Baristanya nice namun ngak terlalu banyak bicara. Setelah minuman kita ready, kita mengambil sendiri minuman kita. Cukup fair lah yah. ;)

Okay, let's start with the beverages!

~ Green Tea Latte ~
Price: IDR 27 k (Presto)
This Green Tea Latte is available in two sizes, Presto and Pro. For Pro, it will cost you IDR 31 k. Because my dad didn't like drinking anything weird, I decided to order him a cup of hot green tea latte. Well, apparently, I was wrong ordering this. I had no idea about the beverages here in Coffee World, since I rarely visited Coffee World, only once or twice. The Green Tea Latte tasted a bit weird, even for me. I never drank Green Tea Latte that tasted this bitter and the green tea powder might be too much. Well, if I ordered a cold one, it might have been okay for us, but since I ordered it hot, we couldn't finish the drink. So well, that day might not be our day for drinking Green Tea Latte. Kalau kalian mau memesan Green Tea ini, sebaiknya memesan yang dingin saja yah saranku. Atau mungkin sekalian menghindari Green Tea ini dan memesan minuman lain yang mgkn akan jauh lebih baik. smile

 
~ Blueberry Yogurt Frappe ~
Price: Approximately IDR 40 k
Saya tidak ingat harga dari minuman ini karna minuman ini tidak tertulis di papan menu mereka, kalau gak salah sekitar IDR 40 k. Lagian minuman ini sepertinya seasonal, jadi bukan menu permanen disana. Setelah mencicipinya sendiri, ternyata minuman ini seger yah. Yap, perpaduan antara blueberry yang wangi dan segar, dengan yogurt yang asam memang menimbulkan sensasi tersendiri bagi peminumnya. Minuman ini merupakan Ice Blended, karna itulah minuman ini bertambah segar lagi, dan cocok diminum pada saat gerah dan cuaca panas. lol Minuman ini cukup manis yah, dan saya rasa malah mgkn agak sedikit terlalu manis yah, ditambah dengan rasa asem yogurtnya, mgkn jadinya agak sedikit overwhelming jika diminum banyak. Tapi tetap cukup menyegarkan kok menurut saya. Whipped Cream diatas minuman ini cukup bikin minuman ini bertambah creamy juga. Bagi yang suka minuman creamy, mgkn akan menyukainya, namun bagi yang nga suka cream, mgkn boleh direquest aja supaya whipped creamnya ditiadakan. lol Well, minuman ini jauh lebih baik dari Green Tea Latte diatas sih.

 
Nah, sudah deh review minuman saya.
Dan untuk fasilitas yang disediakan Coffee World itu, ternyata nga banyak loh. Berbeda dengan kebanyakan Coffee Shop populer yang menyediakan free wifi bagi para pengunjungnya, Coffee World malah menyediakan Wifi berbayar kepada customersnya. Terus terang saya bgng ketika dijelaskan begitu sama baristanya. Maksud saya, salah satu daya tarik Coffee Shop kan biasanya suasana menarik dan fasilitas wifi supaya customers bisa bersantai menikmati kopi sambil online free. Tapi ternyata ini tidak disediakan. Well, kalau disuruh bayar, agaknya males juga yah. lol #GratisanLover ^^ Sebagai gantinya, disini nyediain majalah-majalah buat dibaca para pengunjung. Mungkin mereka lebih suka pendekatan yang lebih tradisional. ;)

Overall, saya rasa Coffee World pada kunjungan ini cukup lumayan saja. Minumannya satu cukup enak, dan satu lagi agaknya kurang sih. Tempatnya sih nyaman yah, dan pelayanannya juga cukup okeh saya rasa. Dan waktu itu, ada promo diskon sih dengan menggunakan kartu tertentu *maap lupa* haha. Dan sayangnya saya tidak punya kartu tersebut.
Buat para OpenRicers, jika ingin ngopi-ngopi disini, mgkn boleh yah datang buat nyoba-nyoba sambil hang out dengan teman-teman. Tempatnya cocok untuk bersantai dan kongkow2 ama teman-teman sih. Namun kalau OpenRicers mau sendirian disini dan online, saya rasa Coffee World bukan tempat yang cocok yah. But that's just my opinion! smile Feel free to check Coffee World out guys!

Thanks for Reading, and see ya later OpenRicers! lolv
