VLOG | Brunch at Common Grounds

Hello, Loves! Back to another weekend of September and I am so glad that I just finished with the Model United Nations conference. It went great and I spent for almost 5 days working in the conference discussing about the most neglected humanitarian crisis in the world at Lake Chad Basin and human capital crisis in African States. I was representing Libya and it was stressful yet fun!

This time I will be showing you one of my favorite places to have brunch at. They are renowned by serving the best of the best Western brunch like Eggs Benedict. But this time, I will be showing another menu of them. One of the dishes I ordered was Salted Caramel Pancake.

Look at the perfect plating and the caramelized banana in there, perfectly made with love. Oh, stop drooling over there. Instead of writing and spending too many words, let me make you drooling over some other dishes by checking this vlog out. Enjoy!

What do you think? I really love the foods they have in there, the vibes of the cafe is amazing but it would be much more amazing if it ain’t located in the mall however the foods they have there are really worth to taste.

That’s all I have for this weekend, I hope you like it and thanks for watching! Have a great weekend x

Lattés You Should Try in Cafes Around South Jakarta

“I can’t go on a day without a cup of coffee,” that’s what they say. Then you definitely could go on a day for a cup of latté with these three different baristas!

So, I’ve been to five different coffee shops nearby and I decided to differentiate each of them by finding out their thing which could make people head over heals in love with their coffee. Let’s get started with the first coffee shop,

Canteen
Location: Pacific Place, Jakarta.
Price: 35 IDR

Really love the ambience of this restaurant. A classic place with classic menus. The waiter came serving the caffe latte that I ordered. And this is how they served it,

I simply adore the tools they played for serving the coffee by concerning the consumers who perhaps don’t prefer sweet latte by separating it with liquid sugar instead of granulated sugar. For the coffee, it tasted quite more creamy than the coffee itself to me. But however, the plum cake was also very tasty, I was in love with it.

1/15 Coffee
Location: Gandaria St, Jakarta.
Price: 36 IDR

I was introduced to this coffee shop by my friends. This place was come up with the term of ‘they say’.  When I found myself in the downstairs of this place, I found it really messy. The first thought that came out was, “maybe it is under-construction”. I went upstairs and found the real ambience of 1/15 Coffee.

This one looks much simpler than before. The barista tended to concentrate on the creativity with its coffee instead of the art of plating with basic tools. This one tasted much bitter which means this latte is a real coffee. I also like the way they claim their mug by putting the logo of 1/15 Coffee on it which is very ambitiously uniquely interesting.

Djournal Coffee
Location: Grand Indonesia, Jakarta
Price: 45 IDR

Smells of coffee were all around. The coffee enthusiasts must love it so much. In this coffee shop, the coffees are vary and it is distinguished with espresso-based or coffee-based. Because of that difference, the price is vary indeed.

Since the beauty of coffee is relative to people, this is actually the best one to me. I like the complexity of the Djournal’s barista made for this coffee. The taste was also very balance between the bitterness and the sweetness indeed. The blue mug that they served for their coffees are actually creative to show people that their ideas are simply out-of-the-box.

That’s all for this weekend! I had so much fun visiting these coffee shops and also tasting their coffee. If you have any recommendations for another coffee shop that you want me to review, kindly contact my email (contact@stylebychia.com). Have a great weekend! 🙂
