Warung Koffie Batavia: Proud Local Brand Who Preserve The Tradition

 Warung Koffie Batavia

Jakarta is a land of the coffee shop, and I need to admit that the hiking number of a cafe in town is relatively high nowadays. More than five new cafes launched each month with fancy or even strong penetration in design. However, nothing can beat the homey feeling when entering the Warung Koffie Batavia. A 135 years coffee joint who start from a humble beginning in the past.

Since its inception in 2013, the seeds of Warung Koffie Batavia has been proven successful in catering to the Jakarta market, with Koffie Warung Tinggi brand. Since then, OPCO Indonesia as the operator and brand co-owner has been preparing the brand for its next development, to be scaled and multiplied nation-wide and eventually internationally. After thorough research, the original name is proven hard to identify and often misinterpreted; born then Warung Koffie Batavia.

Nestled in Senayan City, Warung Koffie Batavia owns a mid-size dining area with panoramic city view. As you enter the dining area, the homey and warm feeling will circulate your mind and cool down your mood. There is an enormous wooden fan on top of the outdoor area fused by wooden furniture and rustic chair as well. Meanwhile, at the indoor section, you might see a thematic coffee rack with white wallpaper and marble floor. Such a good way to feed your eyes properly.

 Cold Brew

 Cold Brew

As they are known for koffie (re: coffee), Kopi Peranakan (IDR 32,000 / Hot) and Cold Brew (IDR 40,000) is essential. An old and classic brewing method with a robust and bold flavor of coffee that never disappoints you. It tastes as smooth as it looks and addicting. I found myself drink two cups of it every time I visit this place. Just pair this with any choice of side dishes for the perfect mid-day snack.

 Mie Goreng Tek Tek

 Mie Goreng Tek Tek

Moving on to the heavy dishes, Mie Goreng Tek Tek (IDR 50,000 / S$ 5,60) is a must. Featuring the stir fried noodle with sunny side up, shredded chicken, and keropok; coated with sweet soy sauce and garlic. It's smooth, springy, and flavourful. I never expect Mie Goreng Tek Tek as the remarkable local menu can be elevated this high without removing the real essence of it. Worth a try.

 Nasi Kuning

 Nasi Kuning

Nasi Kuning (IDR 53,000 / S$ 5,90) is another best-selling item here. Featuring the conned form of tamarind rice with orek tempeh, omelet, fried chicken, and crispy anchovies; served with sambal and peanut sauce on the side. What impresses me a lot is the classic presentation of it. Not too fancy but slightly minimalist and looks good. The protein is slightly dry for my liking, but still acceptable.

 Kue Cubit Premium

 Kue Cubit Warna Warni

Still not enough? Just give it a try for Kue Cubit Premium Mixed Platter (IDR 40,000 / S$ 4,60), a perfectly baked local cake with six different flavors including taro, chocolate, coffee, red velvet, matcha, and original. This item is perfectly matched with any choice of coffee because it is not too sweet but still sugar high.

 Martabak Mozarella Cheese

 Martabak Mozarella Cheese

Martabak Teluk Mozzarella Cheese (IDR 82,000 / S$ 8,80) is also impressive. A nicely cooked egg pancake with a lot and lot cheese; then torched until perfection. The filling is fulfilling while the presentation remains top notch in the market. You might order this for sharing since the portion is gigantic. Max. 6 for sharing.

 Green Tea Frappuccino

Another beverage like Green Tea Latte (IDR 48,000 / S$ 5,40) is also entertaining but too sweet for my liking. The whipped cream itself is smoothly oozing, and a tad drier when I try it. However, the green tea flavor is not bad.

 Warung Koffie Batavia

Warung Koffie Batavia is a perfect hangout spot for nicely brewed coffee and some light menus. All item made fresh from the kitchen and looks even good when it served. Just order what I stated delicious above and you will be delighted more.

  1. I'm a real coffee lover and I like to try this drink all over the world. It is special drink for me and I like to taste different receipts of it. I used to try egg coffee too at Thesis geek cafe . I liked it a lot and even tried to cook it at home.
