Cortado Coffee Bar by VISUU - Jakarta


Most of the cafes in Jakarta as we know it usually have a very different design to Cortado Coffee Bar, it is unique and different, as the interior seemingly brings you back to the 50s with most of the interior covered in the shade of black color from sofa and the chair, wooden flooring, and a lot of painting displays on the wall.


The place itself is pretty small but it is also comfortable. Even though there were some road constructions going on outside the place at that time, we couldn't hear any of the noises from inside.



Products on display for sale

The 2nd floor of the cafe is a boutique, owned by the same owner of the cafe as well. I personally think that it is a pretty good concept to have the boutique and cafe open at the same place. People can rest and chat at the cafe while waiting for the dress to be done or even after fitting and shopping. Aside from those, the cafe also provides several merchandises on display for sale and floral services.

The place serves a variety of different dishes from local Indonesian food to Western pastas. And it specializes in serving cortado coffee made with 100% Arabica coffee beans.

Lychee Iced Tea - IDR 35k // Cortado - IDR 30k // Hot Chocolate Cortado - IDR 38k
The cortado is an espresso cut with a small amount of warm milk. It is fragrant, smooth and feels nice as it slides into your mouth; fitting to be the house specialty.
And unfortunately, we made a slight mistake when it came to the Hot Chocolate Cortado, we were actually supposed to put the chocolate coins into the cup directly while it is still hot so that it can mix well with the milk inside the cup, but we took too much time chatting and taking pictures around until the drink has gotten too cold for the chocolate coins to melt properly inside the cup, thus did not turn out well.

N.B. So please do note that if you do order the Hot Chocolate Cortado, it is recommended that you mix in the chocolate coins into the cup as soon as it comes so that it would taste better. *While it is still warm/hot

Food

This is where things get more interesting. Yes, you've read it right, we're getting straight into the food section. Don't you get excited upon thinking about those yummy savory bites that go into your mouth and gives you various taste sensations? Well, I know that I DO!

Chicken & Portabello Mushroom Quiche - IDR 45k
 As the dishes start rolling in, first one up to the table was the Chicken & Portabello Mushroom Quiche. The quiche was very well made as the crust was firm and crisp with a tender custardy texture inside. The quiche also has this fragrant peppery smell along with the light tasting mushrooms inside. This one is said to be one of the most popular dishes here at Cortado Coffee Bar and I can see that it definitely deserves that place.

Egg Benedict - IDR 75k

The 2nd dish to be served was also on the appetizer list, the Egg Benedict with the choice of having either Smoked Beef or Salmon to go along with it, and we got ourselves the salmon one. Now, the first thing about egg benedicts that I usually pay attention to is the texture, whether the shape is firm enough and also whether the yolk is done well or not.

I would say that it didn't look any tempting at first, but once I sliced it open, man you can feel the power of the yolk bursting out in an instant with a glistening yellow shine. YUM!

Mie Kocok Cortado - IDR 55k

Off we go to the main course, first main course we tried was the Mie Kocok Cortado, nothing too special though, if you know the traditional local Indonesian food, Mie Kocok (Yes, that's the one), it tastes just like any other ones out there.

Only that it is saltier.

Yes, very salty. But well, you can ask them to make it less salty, I suppose.

But if you're the type of person who likes salty foods, this might be just right for you.

Spaghetti Ala Vongole - IDR 75k

Last but not least, we had the Spaghetti Ala Vongole, which is spaghetti with tiny baby clams in the shell. The texture of the spaghetti was firm and the briny juice from the clams tasted great, without any fishy smells.

The portion served was also pretty generous, it was very fulfilling.

If you are interested in coming here, the cafe is located a few meters away from the nearby Seven Eleven, it could be a good spot for meetings, having some me-time, or probably to hang out around with your friends, as the location that it's located is not that overly crowded.
