Best bakes&coffee!@Jakarta

image

One of the best coffee beans I had was not from Klang Valley, but all the way from Jakarta! From this famous roaster Common Grounds!
Each pack of beans, distinct in its aroma!
The great thing is that their medium roasted beans are really nicely done! You can tell from the colour of its beans and the whiff of splendid aroma bursting through as you open the pack, specific as whatever was written..floral, caramel, sweetness etc. You name it, you smell it. Amazing!

Nothing beats Paul & Paulina (Seoul) and Tiong Bahru Bakery (Singapore), but here emerges another “Paul” from Jakarta, a branch of a French bakery that opened in 1889, that can contend up to my all-time favourite two.

Not too sweet, and yummylicious with the crunchy almonds and outer layer. Purrrrrfect with Common Ground’s hand filtered coffee in the morning.

The lemon raspberry tart didn’t disappoint either. Filled with zesty, tingy, citrusy flavour at first, then neutralised by the sweetness of the raspberries. Yuuuuuummmmmmmm! That’s the way to go with a nicely brewed cuppa. Teeheehee.

Sugar and spice, everything nice@Yeast, Telawi Bangsar

I am back again, for the egg benedict at Yeast! The place was packed and I had to chill out at the bar with a cuppa until the next available table was ready.

As usual, it did not fail to disappoint. Finesse and refined. Yet, I could eat in comfort.

The more eggs I eat, I should be able to compile a list of which eggs have got the best oozing factor. RedBeanBag still wins the oozing factor, but this one did not fall far behind the winning champion.

The downsides of coming to Yeast for lunch is the lack of freshly toasted appetizer breads, which are by far, my most favourite bread to date for Klang Valley. Even specialty bread stores to me, have yet to reach the level of satisfaction I get from eating the freshly baked appetizer breads here.

I think I need to return here for dinner…just to eat bread.

The lemon meringue tart, squeals yummy! The zing citrusy factor was just nice, not too much till your eyes subconsciously shut like how you drink horribly done honey lemonades. The meringues were not too thick, with a sight burnt flavour form the top-burnt effect. Thankfully we were sharing, otherwise all the guilt would be nicely consumed by yours truly.

We also ordered the creme brulee, which I had tried and tested several times and was always satisfied. So did we, this time. Through this eating experience, I’ve learnt that there are some out there who never really considered or wondered about the origin of vanilla. They were shocked to know that the black grainy bits inside the dessert were actually from the vanilla beans.

Desserts from Yeast, totally YUMS and a big tick to you for quality!

I need my next meal here soon, when I am bread craved!
