Blacklisted Coffee

About a month ago, Hubby and I went to Puri Mall. It is definitely a mall we barely go to, and the reason we chose to go that night was because they are one of the closest mall that still showing The Bourne Legacy after almost a month airing. Unfortunately for us, by the time we reached there it was left only 10 minutes before the show and we were starving, so we decided to skip the movie and go with Resident Evil instead as the show time was later, in that way we have some time to eat first.

Wandering the shopping mall, I noticed some things had been changed since the last time I went here, which was around 3 - 4 years ago maybe. There was a section of open air terrace restaurants lining in the front of the side lobby. Without knowing what to expect, we try our luck by entering the newly opened Blacklisted Coffee.

[CLOSED] Moovina (Mezzanine)

Moovina is a new dining concept recently open at Plaza Indonesia under the same management of the Italian bistro, Ocha & Bella. The place divided into two levels with the one at the lower floor, Le Jardin, serving a lighter type of food and the one at the upper floor, Mezzanine, serving heavier food selections. Each of the sections have their own entrance but there's a stair inside the restaurant to connect both levels. They really put a big effort on the concept. The place is beautiful! The first one is a chic garden theme with comfy grey couches, white rattan chairs and artificial trees, there's even a beautiful flower shop inside. The whole concept is so pretty. While the latter one is more modernly designed with open kitchen and glass window viewing Thamrin's main road. There's also a bar section with long couches and dimmer lights on the parts of the room. 

Lava Brownies by Brownies Gandum

It was a sweet ending struggle for me to finally able to taste this brownies. Why I say it was a struggle, because it took me almost 3 days to have my order confirmed. I'm not sure who replied the text, but it surely took a very long time for them to reply. I texted morning, they replied evening, I replied instantly, they replied the next day. Such a struggle to taste one of the most talked about brownies in twitter. Luckily, the struggle ended in a sweet way. The brownies was delicious!

Rati Rati: Japanese Roll Cake

Rati Rati is a cute little bakery from Japan specialized in soft roll cake. The chef pastry had won an award in Patisserie division in Japan on 1998, and the place has emerged to five branches there. I was informed that the chef pastry flew all the way here to baked the roll cake him self while training the local chef. The place was opened on April 2012 and located next to one of my most frequent visit place at PIK, Nasi Pedes Little Ubud, so it was not a new thing to me but as someone who is not really a sweet tooth, I never found myself wanted to try this, not even after I heard and read numerous good reviews about it.

[CLOSED] Kira Ramen PIK

I personally feel these several months lately, like every week, there's a new place open focusing in Japanese ramen or Taiwanese bubble tea especially in the vast growth cafe districts of Pantai Indah Kapuk. So often that it didn't even come to surprise anymore when I noticed a freshly opened Kira Ramen, just a few steps away from the famous Ikkudo Ichi which from what I seen based on the cars lining, hasn't lost its popularity.
