I am one of those people who love having brunch, something about the word “brunch” that fascinates me, on certain occasions, I even love dressing up for brunch, even though some days having noodle at street stall is also considered brunch, anyway if you fancy brunch as much as I do, then this entry will be about me sharing you guys my recent finding, which turned out to be one of the most impressive brunch spots in Jakarta, especially in Kemang, I literally didn’t set any expectation on this one, and I guess sometimes when you put none you got a lot in return.
If you ask me to name my favorite brunch places in Jakarta then I would have five that’s on my list, ones that I really like, and this particular cafe sky rocketed to the top 5. If you are not aware of this place before, then it’s my honor to introduce you to Poach’d!
I found that their coffee is pretty good with smooth aftertaste and for that extra vibe to it, they sprinkled the cup lip with meses and salted caramel almond, and I think that’s a cute touch for extra texture and flavor.
Cocktails – range from IDR 85k-IDR 100k
Texan – IDR 117k
If the Aussie is not calorie wise ‘challenging’ enough for you and you need a full blown protein kick, then their Texan might be the option for you! Even from looking at it I know I’m going to just freaking full: sliced briskets (pretty huge for a single serving like this) topped on cheddar fried egg and sourdough, with Jalapeno hash brown, bacons on the side and dressed with BBQ sauce! Another very good option, packed with flavors, so fresh, absolutely in love. So far, still has nothing bad to say.
When it’s served to my table: JUST SO TEMPTING! Toasted bagel with generous smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, tomato, ren onion and chives! The toasted bagel is pretty moist but it was really the smoked salmon and cream cheese that really take the cake, something about the cream cheese that’s deliciously savory and perfectly creamy, and the smoked salmon. FRESH AF!
Don’t judge the pricy price tag, the portion was really beyond what I expected: HUGE!!! It’s like this one full blown chunky rib stacked on the plate, generously seasoned with spices with meat that’s uber tender and juicy, and for the side carb, nasi bakar (grilled turmeric seasoned rice) that’s defaulty spicy and so lightly seasoned, to the point where you eat the rice alone you might feel that not much flavor is packed inside but I think you should have it altogether with the generously seasoned rib for the balance.
My first experience here was nothing but bliss, I absolutely love the food here, the coffee, the warm friendly service, the bitchy side of me wanted to find something negative about this cafe but I don’t think I can find one so far, and hopefully not because after my visit I really have this delightful experience! Short to say, one of my favorite brunch spots in town at the moment! Anyway they open quite early so maybe even before office hour you can have something to indulge here (if you work around the neighborhood LOL)! Thanks for reading!
