Koffie Warung Tinggi d/h Tek Soen Hoo : coffee with comfort

Sorry for the absence. My very first post since I could not remember. Miss me much? :D
I was really a busy bee, with new phase of my medical study, those new restaurants are easily forgotten. My heart sank everytime people were buzzing about it. I felt like a stalker by looking at it all the time. And here I am, making a quick post happily, for having a new post at last! (yeayyy! :D) 

Grand Indonesia had its new comer. Sitting comfortably in the corner of 5th floor, Koffie Warung Tinggi caught my attention. It was their first modern store from the formerly known strore at Hayam Wuruk. It was crowded, offering such an energy in a busy Saturday night. Looks like the people enjoyed the twist of Chinese-Indonesian-Dutch with vintage ambiance. I did enjoy it, too. 

Busy corner, even in 9.30 pm. Varieties of coffee and mini bites were offered. For me, the one that attracted the most was the Indonesia snack part. Even they had this big banner, with " NOW SERVING : MARTABAK OVOMALTINE" clearly written. This Indonesian snack should be their specialties, right?

Coffee Latte.
I did hope they give more latte art on the cup, actually. But it was a busy night for them indeed. Had a sip of it, and loved it. A cup of good latte could not go wrong!

Poffertjes (30+k)
Took me some time to decide what to choose among those Indonesian snacks. Torn between the poffertjes, kue cubit, panekoek, and fried banana, when finally poffertjes was the winner. It took some time to wait for it, and the waiter looked so busy to take care of my order. Quite happy with the presentation, I was hoping a little kick from this little babies. It was just okay, with some bitter spots on several sides. 

Plain martabak (15k) with ovomaltine (40k)
This mini martabak was such a spotlight. Fragrant buttery scent mixed with chocolate were tickling the air. The skin was crunchy but a little bit oily. A bite and the sweetness was really overwhelming! Psst, the topping was quite generous, too!

Good coffee, nice ambiance, and pleasing easy bites. Such a definition of great ambiance indeed. Can't wait for another visit!
