Letter D

I did hear about Letter D. A classic restaurant with a twist in their menu. Once I stepped inside, I was in love with the beauty. Its simplicity did really give comfort. The white color was dominating, giving the atmosphere of elegance.

Pretty corner. Do come in the afternoon when the sunlight accompany you in this pretty place!

Salmon Lodeh (130k)
Sounds weird? Just wait until you have the first bite. Pretty presentation of it made me did not want to make any cut. Salmon was good, fresh and tasty. The coconut soup and cuts of veggies made it even better. A must try when you want to have something extraordinary!

Javanese Fried Noodle. (65k)
We decided to have a touch of Indonesian in out lunch, so we had it. Portion was generous, served with crackers and chicken satay. Noodle was fine, but it was too salty for me. Still a palatable one, though!

 Marinated snapper (130k)
Such a pretty presentation to the eye! Colorful dishes on a plate. Snapper was soft and tasty. The sauce was kinda sour, but still a good one though.

Aglio olio
Aglio olio is something I always have when it come to pasta. My kind of comfort zone. Letter'D's  was al dente, but somehow I found it too salty for my liking. 

Overall it really was a joyful lunch, Pretty place, great company, and pleasing food. Really one of those beautiful place that worth to try!

Mokka Coffee Cobana

As a West Jakarta -siders, you know that Lippo Mal Puri has been growing fast. Restaurants and cafes are popping up rapidly and I find it quite hard to catch up with everything. So I spare some time at my weekend to enjoy it here.

Having myself at Mokka Coffee Cobana. One comfy-looking cafe which had caught my eyes since long time ago, but I never had any opportunity to try it. It was comfortable, with rows of sofas and appropriate height, such a corner to work with your laptop. Unfortunately it was quite pack and I did not get that comfy corner. :(

Ordered this coffee latte (35k) because they had this beverage corner and I thought it must be good. Taste was quite okay. Anyway it was quite a turn off when I wanted to order a cup of catpucino (yea, it's cute! I know, right!) and the served said that it took them some time to serve it, and urged me to have something else. Well, you really have to prepare whatever the guest want to order, don't you?

Their spaghetti pesto (50k), was quite a palatable one. It was not my favorite pasta but still alright. The pasta texture was fine, but I wished the pesto sauce was thicker to give it a bolder taste. Portion was quite generous too!

Smoked chicken ciabatta (40k) consisted of ciabatta sandwich with smoked chicken, mushroom, onion, and tomato. The ciabatta was too pale but apparently taste just alright. The onion and mushroom really were the savior of the filling, but it was not that generous. The french fries was just fine,and it was much better to make it less salty.

Overall, they are one cafe that provides affordable food and comfortable ambiance. This one could be my favorite to deal with my workloads and sip their coffee.

Okay, a quick post about this comfortable restaurant in Menteng area. Located next to Anomali Cafe Menteng and in the area of Bunga Rampai, I actually was not that familiar to this area. But somehow the google maps helped a lot.

The place is really comfortable and spacey. Dominated by white, give it a clean atmosphere. Service was quite okay, since they are new. Basically they are serving brunch. From egg benedict, french toast, steak, and pasta. Well I am a sucker for french toast. So I did order this one without any second thought.

Apparently the french toast was not my favorite, but still was palatable. They used wheat toast which had its bitter end taste. The dough was quite hard and did not mix well. Some of the edges got burned, too.

Tried this pasta topped with beef and tomato. Taste was fine. The pasta was too mushy, but the sauce and the minced beef tasted good. Portion was quite generous, but I did think the quality was not pleasing.

Overall it was not my best lunch, but I did hope they make some improvement here and there. Their homey and comfortable place is really a treasure gem!
