Oldtown White Coffee

Standard

Kopitiam will always be my favorite place to spend my weekend. Oldtown White Coffee’s philosophy is represented my feeling, “Take your time. Savour every moment”. From Malaysia, they successfully spread their franchise to Singapore, China and Indonesia. They formulated their own blend of 3 in 1 instant white coffee and commenced manufacturing in 1999. In 2004, they further penetrated the export markets for their instant coffee to cover the United States,Canada and United Kingdom  and subsequently in 2005, Taiwan and Indonesia.

This evening, I want to try their Hot White Coffee – Cham. Price 17 K. The fragrant of their coffee is equivalent with the taste. The blend between coffee and chocolate is perfect.

Kaya & Butter Thick Toast is sound perfect to accompany my coffee. Price 19 K. Sweet and savory. I like it. They topped the toast with sweetened condensed milk.

For main course, I choose their chef recommendation:  Fried Kuey Teow with Egg Gravy. Price 36 K. The kuey teow is well cooked, but I don’t like the gravy. The flavor of dried shrimp is too strong, dominated all ingredients. I prefer the taste of dried shrimp is lighter, only as an accent.

I think their food are taste mediocrity. I more enjoy their coffee and toast :)

illy espressamente

Standard

If you wanna get a high quality of espresso, this is the right place to get it. I often spend my afternoon here if I’ve become tired after getting around Plaza Senayan. Not so crowded in the weekend, instead of they’re very fully booked at the weekday.

Illy’s secret blend is composed from nine distinct highest order Arabica coffees spanning four continents, purchased directly from the growers who nurtured them. The coffee is perfectly balanced, with a delightfully distinct taste and aroma. In the cup, the illy blend taste rich, full, multi-faceted, yet subtle, comprised of immensely talented soloists, each coaxed to their finest performance under the hand of an expert conductor.

Today I order a cup of Capo Triestino. It’s an espresso topped with 60 ml steamed milk. Price 30 K.

The cake is perfect accompany for espresso. I choose Blueberry Cheesecake. Price 30 K. I don’t really like this version, because is too milky. I still prefer the Cheese Cake Factory’s version.

The Italian Chocolate Cake taste so good. I like it. The thickness of their chocolate mousse is really spoiled me. They directly melted in my mouth. Price 35 K.

Munchies

Standard

The name “Munchies” was chosen to represent their restaurant & bar concept. This word could be referred as snacks or appetizers while the term can also be defined as an appetite. Not only filled with good foods and refreshing drinks, in here they also offer the best and the friendliest service. With an exciting interior compiled with perks such as wifi and plugs. Very suitable for eating and chilling with friends or family.

For beverage I order Coffee Bland Amaretto. Price 35 K. They blended the coffee, milk and rum. Quite refreshing, but not my favorite one.

Fish Finger is my option for the appetizer. Price 33 K. They came with the unique presentation and huge portion like main course, wow! They use snapper fish and fried until it become so crispy. Served with tar-tar sauce & garlic chili sauce. Delicious!

Aglio Olio (Price 63 K) is always become my favorite pasta beside carbonara. I really like the taste of garlic in food. In here, you can add the additional topping: beef or prawn. In my opinion, this is one of the best original Aglio Olio I’ve ever tasted. So garlicious, haha…..Because at the other place, they’re sometimes added other seasoning (such as paprika) that can screw up the original taste of garlic. For me, Aglio Olio is consist of well cooked pasta + garlic + cayenne chili, that’s more than enough!

Beef Aglio Olio

For dessert I choose Crème Brulle. Price 33 K. You can make this fancy dessert ahead a time with a minimum of effort and still have all your guess excited about your culinary skills. Crème Brulle should start with a custard base that is richer, creamier, and silkier than other crèmes. On top of that custard should be a layer of caramelized sugar. This sugar can be thick or thin. A thick layer is usually produced by caramelizing sugar in a pot and pouring the liquid caramel over the custard. But in here, they give us thin layers (as thin as paper), are produced by directly heating a sugar layer using a broiler or torch. It’s taste very nice!

Marutama

Standard

Marutama is specialize in Toripaitan soup & Tamago. Toripaitan soup is 100% pure chicken broth that made with no MSG at all. They needs approximately 5 hours daily for cooking process and preparation. At Japan, Marutama’s half boiled seasoned egg rewarded as “the best tamago”. Its unique texture that fully boiled at the surface but yet still half boiled on the inside blended perfectly with the seasoning.

Today I order their chef recommendation: Karashi Ramen Pork. Price 52 K. This ramen served with half boiled aji tamago and aosa seaweed topping, complete with melt in your mouth pork char siu. They also provide the chicken char siew. It’s taste so delicious. But my heart still goes on Ikkudo ramen, haha….

I tried their side dish : Yaki Char Siu. Price 38 K. OMG, so rocking tasty! I love it. I think they fried it with butter, so juicy & scrumptious! Must order!
