Thanks to Jakarta’s notorious traffic, I find myself going to Alam Sutera – Tangerang more and more often. Most of the time, we follow a familiar routine, lunch at my favorite Indonesian restaurant: Indah Jaya Minang (Read the review HERE), then after lunch, we usually go to Mall @ Alam Sutera. The mall is quite new with lots of cafes to hang out and work from. Last month, I noticed a new coffee shop opening there called Bourbon Eatery & Coffee. The interior looks quite interesting, so we decided to go there one weekend for lunch.
Bourbon Eatery & Coffee is located at the ground floor right across Starbucks®. It comes from the same management team as Bong Kopitown (a coffee shop with prison theme). The place has lots of Instagram photo spots, with tosca colored wall panel, nice murals and mix-matched chairs & table.
The menu is a combination of brunch menu, Asian, pasta and dessert. That day, we decided to order old school fish and chips 65K for SC and claypot chicken rice 42K for me. The fish and chips was quite delicious. The dory fish was firm and I love their fried baby potatoes. The tartar sauce was also good but the salad dressing was a bit too sour. My claypot rice was weird. First, it didn’t look like it was cooked along with the claypot, more like rice topped with scrambled egg, capcay and marinated chicken chunks. In my opinion, it just doesn’t mix well.
We didn’t try the coffee & dessert that day, so we returned a week later on weekday. I saw that they have a “pay 1 for 2 coffee” promo. We ordered a cup of cappuccino 29K and americano 25K, plus a slice of deliciously looking chocolate cake called Manjari Godiva 45K. Both the coffee and the cake were only decent. The chocolate cake was good, but not as bitter as I hoped for. All in all, I think this is a nice place to hang out, just don’t put too much expectation for the coffee and the food.
