If a picture speaks a thousand words, then let these pictures speak thousands of words.
Note taken from Thatha about Saudagar Kopi:
- Started in October 2013
- Owner is from Bandung
- The killer House Blend is a mix of Toraja Sapan, Padang, and Bali Natural
- Single origini: Silimakuta
- Round clock service
- Bakmi Koji Bakso Goreng – both the bakso goreng (fried meatball) and the mie ayam (chicken noodle) are homemade. They also produced homemade srikaya (coconut egg jam)
- Colenak Retro consists of three pieces of tape (cassava), topped with palm sugar. “Colenak” is another word for “tape bakar”
- They offer two types of pisang goreng (fried banana): Pisang Tempura and Pisang Aroma. I tried the Pisang Tempura, where they cut a banana into three wedges and deep fry it. One portion has six wedges, which means they used two bananas.
- Roti Bakar Baheula is kind of toast topped with condensed milk, margarin and sugar.
- The decorations displayed are also for sale. Very smart.
- Nearby coffee shops / cafe within walking distance: Oey Kopitiam, Rumate, Dr. Dre, Sabang 16, Eatology, Coffee World (inside Maxone Hotel)
Sabang 16 is famous for its kaya toast and local single origin coffee. The interior is quite interesting, a mixture of modern and oldies. There were collections of jokes on modern technology, as well as ancient housewares.
The first time I came here I ordered a cup of Kopi Tubruk made of Sidikalang coffee beans and Roti Srikaya Panggang.
The kaya toast looks very fluffy. I liked it.
However, the second time I came here with Riri, I was extremely disappointed. I wanted to order Ginger Tea, but it was out of stock. Then, I wanted to order its famous Kaya Toast, but they also didn’t have it.
Menteng is famous for many varieties of street food, one of them is satay. Riri picked this famous satay shop at the corner of Jl. K.H Wahid Hasyim and Jl. Sabang.
Only one man was positioned at the satay grill station even though the orders were nonstop both for dine-in and takeaway.
Thatha had a portion of Sate Ayam (Chicken Satay).
Riri had a portion of Sate Kambing (Lamb Satay).
And we shared a bowl of Soto Ayam (Chicken Soup).
Everything was delicious, especially the lontong (Indonesian rice cake), very fresh and big.
Bakmi Toko Tiga is not only selling noodle, but also other Chinese meat and vegetable dishes, similar to Bakmi Naga. I like how the menu is compressed, but still offer enough choices for everyday eats. This restaurant is one of favourite restaurants for my boyfriend and I.
Bakmi Pangsit Goreng – I love thin noodles like this one
Ayam Goreng Terasi – crispy! but not spicy
Cah Kailan – not as good as the others
