By popular votes, instead of going to Milan, we made detour to visit Innsbruck, small town in bordering country Austria. It is a beautiful place, located right below the Alpen Mountains. The old town buildings on the foreground blend nicely with the snowy Alps at the background.
It’s funny to observe how different the Italians (compared to us) in having their coffee. Mostly they will order for espresso and will finish it in 1-2 sips. While for me, I would rather to sit back, relax and enjoy my cappuccino.
But one thing for sure, the standar of coffee in this country is very good. Even rest area on highway serve you high quality coffee!
Learned from our lesson yesterday, when we experienced bad traffic on our way to Kuta, we opt to look for nice hang out place within strolling distance.
Our choice tonight is Pison Coffee, a seemingly popular cafe in Seminyak, where young travelers meet up, enjoy a nice sip of coffee while listening to fine acoustic band.
For die-hard coffee lovers, Starbucks coffee is synonim to KFC or other fast-food stall. It’s good only when you want to have quick grab, or when there’s lack of options but you want a familiar taste.
Starbucks Reserve is introduced by the popular Seattle brand to lure the coffee connoisseurs who want beyond their regular dose of coffee intake.
There is relatively new restaurant at my neighborhood around Jalan Tarogong, South Jakarta. Located at Hero Supermarket complex, just next to Starbucks Tarogong, the place is called “Bakmi Mama”.
This morning I had breakfast there with Rafif, had previously ate there with Elok, with a conclusion: it was nice, not bad.
So this morning, I gave it another go. Continue reading
In my opinion, “Empal Gentong” Mang Darma is better than a much popular H. Afud, which I visited last time I went to Cirebon. It is served with cow skin crackers which is really delicious and add complete taste to it.
Took Rafif this morning for experiencing breakfast at Jogja style”Angkringan“. Angkringan is a small off the street food tent, normally sits on the pedestrian walk. Opened from late evening to early morning, these
Angkringan have important role in saving Jogja cash-strapped students for cheap coffee and meals, albeit for a very small portion, which is popular called as “sego kucing” (cat’s rice portion) 😄
Truly unique Jogja.
Since “ndeso” become trending topic in Indonesia these days, we visited Kopi Klothok, a javanese-traditional-village-setting restaurant at Pakem, Jogja.
This restaurant now is very popular for tourists in Jogja. The ambience created is to simulate the traditional house of javanese villagers (ndeso!), where the kitchen (which normally have black walls due to ashes) is integrated with the dining place.
During Eid festive season, Pantai Indah Kapuk is one of the place in Jakarta where you can be sure the stores and restaurants are open, since this is known as residential area for many chinese Indonesian whose mostly are non moslems.
Okay, but this post is not about race nore religion. It’s about us finding food for lunch, LOL.
We did find it, but it was not remarkable one: Bakso Lapangan Tembak. Nice food, but you can find it somewhere else than in PIK. But at least it’s halal 😄, as PIK is also known as place of non-halal food restaurants in Jakarta.
So after finishing our food, we look for something that we can only find in PIK. And that’s what lead us to Toby’s Estate, a coffee place from Australia, which is located in PIK Avenue Ground Floor. Elok happened to read it somewhere in internet, and we decided to go there. Continue reading
