I Do Baking

Recently, I got so many questions about where to find the authentic Indonesian Roll Cake with lovely flavor and affordable prices. Even though, there are tons of cake shop and bakery in town, the good one lie in this brand. Perhaps, I Do Baking is what I mean.

Established in mid-2016, I Do Baking is a brand new bakery that served tons of goodies including cake, bread, cookie, and more. As its title suggest, I Do Baking is owned by the young blood who are passionate in baking. Due to the fast respond to the market needs and lifetime efforts, I Do Baking got less time to launched their first physical store in Kota Kasablanka last week.

Bolu Gulung

Specialized in Indonesian Roll Cake, you better try this Bolu Gulung Strawberry. Featuring the nicely baked roll cake, stuffed with strawberry jam and butter. It's not too sweet, but more fruity and pillowy. The only problem here is the size of this cake is too small for me! :) How do you think?

Chocolate Meises Roll Cake

Another choice of flavor might be Bolu Gulung Mocha Meises, Ovomaltine, or even Nutella. Personally, I would like to recommend you to try the Mocha Ceres Roll besides the strawberry one, since the flavor is well balanced and not overpowering your palate. Therefore, mocha ceres cake is part of classic Indonesian dessert.

Coka

Regarding baked cookie, this Coka is the best-seller one. The main highlight here is everything. Presentation, flavor, and texture are all on point. Once you bite it, you can feel the crispiness of cookie skin followed by the sweetness of that filling. Do pair this with hot coffee for the best experience.

I Do Baking

Overall, I Do Baking is one of the best cake shops that born through Instagram. You wouldn't expect more than nicely baked Indonesian Roll Cake and Hazelnut Cookie since it tastes so authentic here. Just place your order before promotion end! :)

Hotel Indonesia Kempinski

Think weekend staycation or even business hotel? Hotel Indonesia Kempinski is the best idea. Back then it is known as HI, the first 5-star hotels in Indonesia that legally known as a major city landmark. As its title suggest, Hotel Indonesia itself was established in 1962 and was inaugurated by President Soekarno in preparation for 1962 Asian Games. Entering the modern era, exactly in 2004, the Hotel started the whole renovation process and completed in 2009 after successfully acquired by Kempinski Property.

It takes less than 15 minutes until everything done and I cannot wait to see my room for the whole weekend.

Welcome to the Executive Grand Deluxe Room with a view of Hotel Indonesia roundabout. Located on the 6th floor of this hotel, this 64sqm room has been separated into three areas: luxury bedroom, beautiful working space, and huge bathroom. It can be classified as a luxury since the high-quality amenities, 40" flat-screen TV, and free high-speed WiFi is all there. The most difficult work desk is fully equipped with table lights, adaptor, and long-stand book rack. Apart from what it looks, I do love the whole ambiance of this corner part of this room which is warm and calm.

The most prominent section of any five-star hotel is the bathroom. Probably, I spent more than 8 hours here due to the unusual and lovely settings of bathtub and showers. Surrounded with double sinks, marble floor, and full mirror around the area, each of you can run a small catwalk for sure. In a sense, woman or even man who love to take a beautiful, good picture might feel glad about this findings. Also, you just won't believe that the size of this bathroom is almost similar like the bedroom means very spacious. No wonder when you spending two hours here doesn't feel that long.

Only for the dear guest, the access to the rooftop swimming pool on level 17th has been unlocked. Just bring your partners here, take a quick dip, and enjoy the 360-view of downtown of Jakarta.
Still, at the same level (17th floor), there is a premium spa (IDR 800,000++ / 90 minutes) for you that is entirely inspired by Javanese style of massage. There are four types of oil that you can choose for a single time of spa including energizing, green tea, relaxing earl gray, and citrus lavender. Personally, I do recommend you to try the relaxing earl gray, since the texture is not too sticky but smells so fragrant and aromatic. No need to worry about the therapist as well, since they are an expert in taking care of your body.

Signature Restaurant

Crabstick Siew Mai

Mie Bakso

No need to leave this hotel whenever you feel hungry since the best buffet restaurant in Jakarta belongs to them. Signature Restaurants is an all-day dining venue that served for more than 30 menus daily in unique and thematic settings.

Above menu is what I love the most from this venue including Mie Bakso, Crabstick Siumay, and Glazed Donuts.

Beef Truffle Don

Another place-to-eat inside this hotel is OKU Restaurants who served the fanciest Japanese food like no other. Let say Truffle Gyudon, Garlic Oyster, and Hokkaido Fresh Market is all belongs to them. Just give it a try once you stay here.
