Sunday Lunch with Friends

Last two Sundays, i had a spontaneous visit to Kalaha @ The Wharf to catch lunch with my friends. I'm loving the weather that day, so we decided to sat outside and enjoy the sun! 
Fish and Chip 60k

Chicken Quesadilla 60k

Fettuccini Alfredo 60k

Burger Barbecue 60k

Laughter is brightest, where food is best. - Irish Proverb 

Located near the beach, The Wharf is definitely one cool place for hangouts. If you choose to sit inside, you'll find such an unique interior, dominated with woods material and lots of boat knick knacks, you'll feel like you're inside a classic cargo ship! The outdoor is even more interesting, they use barrels and small boat miniature as the table, so very cute, but unfortunately i didn't take any pictures of them.

Food in general is just fine for me, not very impressed, but still alright. The Barbecue Burger that i ordered is the biggest disappointment. The meat is ridiculously taste weird, and it didn't even feel like a real meat. The sauce consist too much tomatoes and taste less like barbecue. Other than that, everything else is fine. Fish and Chips is well cooked, the crispness is great. Chicken Quesadilla is also amazing, the filling is undoubtedly delicious. But the best one must be the Fettuccini Alfredo, the texture of the noodle is amazing, the sauce is perfectly creamy and flavory, and it sown with the best chicken meat ever. On the other hand, serving wise is quiet excellent. The waiter who served us was really friendly and well behaved. Bonus point!

I will recommend this place to chill, buy some drinks and enjoy the beach wind, come in the afternoon, it will be one delightful day out. Enjoy :)

 It was such a good day and the sky was shinning perfectly bright, I decided to go out for a cheeky little mid-week brunch at Le Café Gourmand with a good friend of mine. I'm sure you've heard A LOT  about this place since it's one of the most recent famous cafe in Jakarta and here i am, about to join the hype!

When i came in, i instantly feel that France-ish cafe vibes. The design is really lovely, the interior is so clean, chic, and neat, i fall in love straight away with this place! In the first area, I caught three macaroon paintings which i thought is very cute, and then i noticed in every corner they have these shelves filled with a lot of coffee/tea kits and some Le Café Gourmand boxes/tea cup signature. But my most favourites part of all are the open bar in the middle of the cafe and the hand-painting illustration on the wall! Uber cool! Definitely enhance the cozy atmosphere! 


I also admire the music they were playing. The playlist is absolutely a perfect fit, successfully produce the best ambience. Song of the day is Raconte Moi by Stacy KentC'est beau!

Pastries and Cakes

Neve Fondente 46k (Low fat milk added 7k )

Damman Teas: White Tea (Camomile) 40k 

Chef's Salad 47.5k
Salad of iceberg lettuce with beef, chicken, sausages, and shrimp dressed in thousand island dressing.
I love how the veggies are all fresh and the meats are well cooked, except for the shrimp. The beef is the best one in my opinion, so tender and juicy! The thousand island dressing is just perfectly sweet. Overall it's great but not too memorable for me. 

Croque Chicken 65k
Croque of chicken breast with béchamel sauce, french fries and salad.
I'm just gonna say, i expect the salad will be more than only plain green veggies like that, but it's alright because the disappointment was replaced by their awesome French Fries, it has the nicest texture and not to mention the crispness is amazing! The chicken was grilled so it has low calories and it was quiet juicy. The taste of the béchamel sauce is sweet and pretty rich. Lastly, the proportion of this meal is just precisely good!

Caramel Chocolate Tart 45k
I asked the waitress which one is the most favourite and she pointed at this Caramel Chocolate Tart, so i tried one and...she ain't lie guys! This cake, is veeeeery sweet (perhaps a little bit too sweet), perfect choice for you who happens to have a sweet tooth like mine. It got the greatest crust ever, the cake texture is great and the filling is simply to die for, a chocolate ganache and caramel combined together! Who can seriously resist this guilty pleasure? 

This time, my short marking will be 7.5 for foods, and 8.5 for the ambience. I know Le Café Gourmand is known better for its dessert, so on my next visit, i will be focusing on that matter. Cant wait!

For the price range is more less around 250k for two people. It's pretty worth it for everything that you'll get in here (In terms of good ambience, good food, and there's also wi-fi available) So why wait? Come and have yourself a little chill day!
