Coffee Kulture in Pluit, North Jakarta opened its doors a few years ago on one of Pluit's main street just across from Baywalk Mall. I wasn't impressed by the concept at first, because as a specialty coffee shop, the food seemed to be confused, with dim sum and other odd-one-out items on the menu (hence, I didn't write about it until today). But luckily, my fellow blogger / cook / food stylist friend, Natasha The Yummy Traveler stepped in, just in t time to 'rescue' and revamped the menu. Today, not only has Coffee Kulture expanded to its second and bigger location with much better interior concept, the menu has seen a major improvement (taste and quality wise) from before my friend consulted for them. Now, let me show you why this place is worth the visit.
|Complimentary infused water certainly doesn't hurt at all!|
The Menu, as I mentioned earlier, has seen a major improvement, with more varieties and up to date with the current food trend as well as market's taste. From the drinks, other than the classic hot coffee, I quite enjoy the Avocado Coffee Crunch with chocolate ice cream and a shot of espresso. The Valrhona Coffee Mocha is a small cup of rich and not overly sweet to indulge in too. Oh, yes, following the current trend of outrageous shakes, you'll even find 2,000 calories loaded shakes, like the Baozy Smores, a towering glass of chocolate shakes with mini Nutella fried Baoger, Marshmallow, 54% dark chocolate, oreo & milk biscuit. I personally, in my sanity, will never order this, I guess the drink appeals to younger, more adventurous and less health-worrying crowd.
