The Twig Cafe

A cute little diners at Pantai Indah Kapuk had caught my attention for a while since its opening in July. The very first reason of my curiosity was because of their appealing food pics on their FB page. One Monday afternoon I went there with my bestie and turns out they closed every Monday. What are the odds? So, several days ago, I finally able to satisfy my curiosity towards the place on a weekday dinner.

Twig offers western food although the options were not vary enough. They also serves selections on cupcakes and able to cater a personal cupcakes for birthday or other event. The place was very cute. All the interior dominated with white color, making the whole ambiance felt modern vintage, very sleek and chic. While the second floor was designed in sort of garden's cafe look a like. It was adorable. They also have a small boutique on the second floor named "Lost & Found". I didn't have the chance to check out the pieces as they were closed during my visit. 

I love it how the menu came with booklet of the food pics. We decided to go with Stuffed mushroom (35k), Spaghetti aglio olio with prawn (38k) and BBQ spare ribs with barbeque sauce (95k). They used Gryphon tea for their tea selections and I ordered my self a cup of Marrakesh mint tea (22k). 

The BBQ spare ribs came first and we were surprised with the very huge portion. We can opted whether we want our ribs to be with fries or butter rice, hubby went with butter rice. So, the ribs came in top of the butter rice accompanied with coleslaw. I must say, for 95k, it was one hell of a ribs. Very huge, tender and perfectly grilled. Even I who is not a fan of ribs kept on taking bites from hubby's plate. 

A plate of spaghetti cooked in aglio alio way is always one of my comfort food whenever I felt confuse on what to eat. Most of the time, it never failed me but I didn't like theirs. Well, the seasoning was ok but I didn't like the way it cooked. Too mushy and wet for an aglio type. The stuffed mushroom was a bowl of 5pcs huge baked champignon mushroom stuffed with sauteed mushroom, chorizo sausage and cream cheese. Actually it was quite ok, I did like the stuffing but the baked mushrooms were too mushy. If only they baked it in a more crunchy kind of way would make it perfect.

After we finished with our meal, the owner approached us with a free tasting of cheese cakes. Well, I didn't eat it coz I don't eat cheese but my hubby said it was a good cheese cake. Moist and creamy. Overall, I love the ambiance of the place, it's such a comfy place to hang with your friends. I'll definitely be back to check out the desserts and have my self that huge ribs. :D
