0 komentar


Folie Kitchen & Patisserie is one of a new restaurant in Canggu, Bali. They offer delectable Western and Indonesian cuisine along with pretty and mouth-watering cakes. Some Instagram's posts were truly made me curious to visit this restaurant. Folie which located at Canggu area, dominated their area with pastel colors. Almost their interior and furniture are in soft pink, blue and green colors. In several corners, they also cover the walls with pretty wallpaper. Geez, as a woman, I couldn't resist my self to not take a selfie hahaha...The area was divided into indoor and outdoor area. Let's take a look of how beautiful the indoor interior was.


And how not I'm in love with their outdoor area. How they choose the pastel colors, the sofas, the wallpapers, everything just soooo pretty and instagrammable!




Folie Kitchen & Patisserie offers love from the kitchen of Chef Stephan Hammond. Lucky me to be greeted by him when I was visit their store. He's so kind and humble, though I wasn't talk too much, the way he even greet a guest and let me to sit into my preferable area, made me believe that he's creation might as humble as his smile. Several Western, Asian and Indonesia are on Folie's menu list, but since it's still early in the morning and I need a cup of coffee and something sweet after my big breakfast, I decided to try their patisserie.

Strawberry Tart' Folie - 32K


Pastry is also a great love of Chef Stephan Hammond. I assumed it from how people recommend this place as pastry heaven. I know it's true when I saw how heaven the pastry display was. It's full of colorful and mouth-watering cakes! Ommmoooo, I even hard to decide one! Since I have to choose, I decided to take the colorful and interesting one among the others, and it went to this Folie Strawberry Tart. Look how wonderful the colors were. A pretty red and green on the top of pistachio tart. The tart itself has a flaky skin outside and moist tart inside with rich vanilla flavor. The butter cream, the pistachio and nut chunks gave additional sensation to the whole cake as well. The best part was the whole flavor wasn't too sweet for my palate. Definitely must try!



Americano - 25K

Since my hubby is not a sweet-tooth person, he chose to have Americano as the cake pairing. The strong flavor of espresso shot here, simply neutralize his palate after the sweet cake. 



Cafe Latte - 25K

Me, as usual, chose lighter coffee. Caffe Latte here was simply perfect as my cake pairing.



Ah too bad, I came here in a rush, in between our hotel check-out and the hard rain of Bali and oh in a full belly after big breakfast. Didn't have too much time to try their main menu. Next time I should schedule my visit longer and at least for lunch before taking any meals hahaha...trust me once you see the cake display, you want it for more and more...

BARLEU COFFEE SHOP, BANDUNG

0 komentar


Setiap ke Bandung, saya tidak pernah bosan mencari tempat makan atau tempat ngopi yang baru, karena cuma di Bandung saya bisa mendapatkan suasana kota yang lebih ramah dan sejuk dibandingkan Jakarta dan harga kopi yang masih relatif murah hehehe... Salah satu coffee shop yang saya kunjungi kali ini adalah Barleu Coffee. Coffe shop yang baru beberapa bulan beroperasi ini berlokasi di Jalan Anggrek tepatnya di depan Taman Superhero. Lokasinya yang berada di area peumahan dengan taman yang sejuk, membuat coffee shop ini terlihat sangat strategis, nyaman dan homey walaupun tempatnya tidak besar. 


Barleu mendominasi coffee shop-nya dengan warna hitam dan putih, dan furnitur berwarna cokelat. Terdapat area teras depan yang menghadap ke jalan besar, area tengah dan area teras belakang yang berdekatan dengan sebuah distro. Area tengah atau bagian indoor-nya agak sempit, jadi lebih enak duduk di teras depan sambil menikmati sejuknya udara Bandung. 


Barleu menyajikan beberapa jenis racikan kopi termasuk single origin seperti Bali Kintamani, Toraja, Aceh Gayo, dll. Juga beberapa makanan ringan seperti roti bakar, siomay, cireng, cilok atau pisang goreng sebagai teman minum kopi. Ada juga makanan berat namun tidak banyak seperti Mie Yamin manis atau asin. Karena saya datang masih pagi sekali, dan sebelumnya saya sudah menghabiskan segelas kopi di tempat sebelumnya, saya penasaran mencoba Affogato-nya bersama roti dan pisang goreng. 


 Affogato - 25K

Secangkir kecil espresso shot yang lumayan pahit dan asam dengan nutty after taste yang sangat pas disiram di atas es krim vanilla kesukaan saya. Ah, affogato-nya Barleu ternyata enak juga. Meskipun menurut saya espresso-nya memang terlalu bold, tapi rasa manis dari es krim vanilla-nya masih bisa menetralkan seluruh rasa di lidah saya. 


Roti Bakar Nutella & Cheese - 22K

Roti bakar di Barleu menggunakan roti yang tidak biasa saya temukan di beberapa kedai kopi. Rotinya berukuran persegi panjang dengan ukuran agak besar dan tebal. Sepintas mirip dengan roti homemade, Roti Gempol. Meskipun kelihatannya padat, ternyata pas dipotong sangat airy dan lembut, hmmmm apalagi ditambah dengan olesan nutella dan parutan keju yang berlimpah. Perfect coffe companion!


Pisang Goreng Keju Susu - 15K

Nah, sebenarnya pagi-pagi memang enaknya minum kopi panas plus goreng pisang ya kan. Makanya saya penasaran juga nih nyobain. Mungkin biasa saja sih pisang gorengnya, tapi ditambah lumuran susu kental manis dan parutan keju plus affogato saya, kayaknya indah banget aja gitu morning coffee saya hehehe...


Overall, meskipun imut-imut tempatnya, tapi Barleu ini bisa jadi next coffee destination yang hip menurut saya. Selain lokasinya yang startegis, menu dan suasananya juga mendukung banget buat siapapaun yang kepengan duduk-duduk manis sambil ngopi atau sekedar nongkrong, oh atau belanja baju di distro sebelahnya dan lapar lalu bisa deh mampir kesini. Harga minuman dan makanannya masih sangat affordable menurut saya. Minuman starting from Rp25,000-33,000, sementara makanannya mulai dari Rp17,000 - 26,000 saja. Will have another visit to this coffee shop for sure!

TITIK TEMU COFFEE, SEMINYAK, BALI

0 komentar


I must be so late in visiting Titik Temu, one of the hippest coffee shop in Bali which the hype is still on until now. Even so, I still curious to try their coffee and of course to visit what people said as one of the coziest coffee shop in Bali. 

Titik Temu located at the small alley in Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak. You won't recognize this place if you don't watch their small sign in front of the alley. Even thought we need to park my motorcycle in the small alley, I was a bit surprise that the area actually so big inside. Titik Temu has a very big and green front yard area which was soooo homey. The design of the coffee shop was also unique, a wooden house with an ethnic and rustic design in. As I am aware about my foodies friend's previous post of Titik Temu back in 2016, so many changes made to the overall design of this coffee shop nowadays. Back then, the area was all outdoor, including the rooftop; now the downstairs area changed into an indoor area covered with minimalist windows. There's also a white wall covered half part of the edge of the stairs which now became "A MANDATORY" photo area when you visit Titik Temu. People loves to spend their afternoon on the rooftop area, but since I came here in the middle of the day, which was super sunny and hot, I decided to sat down inside the indoor area.



The indoor area might looks small but somehow, the way they arranged the table made the overall area looks wider. This was a short visit after my big lunch so my hubby and I only spent our time tried out their coffee. They offers quite wide range of coffee including the single origin coffee from Bali, Bandung, etc. Choices of light snacks and big meals such as burgers and sandwiches were also available to choose.


Iced Long Black - 31K

Hubby's fav. A refreshing shot of espresso in a glass. I'm not an avid fan of long black, but this one was quite interesting to try. The espresso taste was strong but the after taste was light and not too bitter. 


Flat White - 33K

This coffee used single origin named Sunda Gulali from West Java with the tasting notes malty, milk chocolate and sweet in milk. It's creamy with lovely chocolate after taste. I love this coffee so much!


I should spend my day more in this cozy coffee shop. The ambiance was super duper great especially the rooftop area. Some said that this coffee shop only sells their ambiance, some said that the coffee was good. Some said good, some not. Well, that's people personal opinion. Mine would be in between that two. How about you? Have you tried Titik Temu so far? Pleasure to hear your comment below. 

Have a great day!
