Kopi Oey

Today I will review about a restaurant at Jakarta owned by Bondan Winarno.  FYI, Bondan Winarno is famous in Indonesian culinary. I believed most of the Indonesian people know him.  He is so famous with his word 'Maknyus' that he says in his television food programmed every time he tastes delicious food that he likes.

We accidentally found this restaurant after we had lunch at Pasar Baru area. So over there we only ordered some dessert: Banana Flambe Ala Mode and Milo Dinosaurus.

Banana Flambe Ala Mode is a recommended dessert in this restaurant.

Milo Dinosaurus is a beverage that is adapted from Singapore's Milo Dinosaur.

Overall we like both desserts so much.

Other than nice foods, their restaurant interior design also becomes a plus point to attract customer to come in. It's a retro and eye-catching.

Will I go there again? Yes

Banana Flambe Ala Mode IDR 28.000

Milo Dinosaurus IDR24.000
