Tian Kee & Co

Looking for a retro place to hang out around Dakota Crescent area? You may try Tian Kee & Co.

Tian Kee & Co is a café that is decorated with a lot of vintage things from around 70th - 80th. If you were born in these era, this was a good place for you that was confirmed it would bring back your childhood memories.

Over there, I ordered Rainbow Cheesecake and Peppermint Iced Nutella.

Rainbow Cheesecake is one of the favourite dessert at Tian Kee & Co café. The taste is delicious. This cake also has beautiful colour which is confirmed becoming a must-order-cake among ladies to put the picture on their Instagram.

Rainbow Cheesecake S$7.50

If you are a peppermint lover, you may want to try Peppermint Iced Nutella. The peppermint taste is quite strong. So sorry, since I am not a Peppermint lover, this Peppermint Iced Nutella is not my cup of tea.

Peppermint Iced Nutella S$7.00

Will I go there again? Yes if I am around Dakota Crescent area.

Ragusa Es Italia

Today I will introduce you to one of the very old ice cream shop in Jakarta named Ragusa Es Italia. Ragusa Es Italia exists since 1932 in Batavia (previous name of Jakarta. Batavia is a name given by Netherland).

Ragusa Es Italia already becomes a part of Jakarta history that is still survived until now.

Nowadays, there are only 3 left Ragusa Es Italia shop. We visited Duta Merlin branch. Only in this branch, they sell European, Indonesian and Chinese dishes beside ice cream.

We ordered Spaghetti Ice Cream, Cassata Sicilliana, Fillet Steak and Kwetiaw Goreng (Fried Kway Teow).

Their most recommended ice cream is Spaghetti Ice Cream. Wondering why they had named it Spaghetti Ice Cream? I believed it's because the ice cream shape looks like Spaghetti. It's really yummy and the ice cream texture is smooth.

Spaghetti Ice Cream IDR35.000
Cassata Sicilliana ice cream is also delicious. You can try many different flavors in one ice cream.
Cassata Sicilliana IDR30.000

FYI, Ragusa Es Italia is using fresh cow milk to make the ice cream and not using preservative at all.

Fillet Steak and Fried Kway Teow are also not bad. The steak is tender enough. Both are promising main dishes for us.

Fillet Steak IDR35.000

Kwetiaw Goreng IDR20.000

Overall, we enjoyed having lunch here.

Will I go there again? Yes.
