Kinda bit late, but hell yeah I Gotta posted something that cherish our lovely town christmas! As several resto and cafe had tried to decorated themselves to make this one month lateral event keep blooming, one that stole my attention is this Garage, nah it’s not a parking garage, is all day meal and coffee shop garage that called Old Bens!
Old Bens is all day brunch and coffee shop located at Jalan Terusan Sutami, near Maranatha Christian University, The exterior seems like an old abandoned garage, but inside, the cozy feel and christmas decoration has raised my mood, there’s also an unique group photo bomb spot as now it decorated with a Christmas style!
>> IDR 24k
Safely played, with a premium standard of common grounds coffee special blend, nearly cropped with the famous cloak and dagger but has a little bit soft hint on the acid, overall it’s choco yet limy characterism, quite a real deal for under IDR25k capp!
>> IDR 75k
A limited edition menu, I don’t know rather it still exist when you got there, but specifically, it’s a French style beef stew in Bali’s red wine w/ pearl onions and mushroom, served with creamy mashed potato. Confused? Well I got more simple explanation. Have you ever ate IKEA meatball? Yes literally the sauce, and the mashed potato is quite same, but the different is on the meat, here’s the meat is three times better than the IKEA indonesia one , and also dressed up by a beautiful carrot garnish, epic! And if you had peek our instagram, there’s also a fabolous christmas edition donut that sold for only IDR 7k each, yummy!
Ben’s Big Breakfast
>> IDR 60k
Full house baby! Bacon, sausages, toast, sauteed mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, and spinach, hmm, actually not the best full house I’ve ever tasted, but depend the price and the precious mushroom (YES THE MUSHROOM IS REALLY BERRY GOOD), I still want to order it again on my next visit, literally.
>> IDR 65k
Finally we arrived at the bottom two, guess what this bottom two is top notch of the day for us, first, please welcome this epic Balado Roll! Simply a french bread, stuffed with CRISPY Pork Belly, and Balado Chilli, served with another crispy fries, hmm, I really loved how the pork belly stuffed with balado sauce, it seems I am sipping a nice Pork Belly in Bali now, o yeah definitely will come back for this epic measurement!
Strawberry Watermelon Pavlova
>> IDR 28k
First time tasted this russian dessert, oh ya for you who haven’t knew what’s pavlova is, here’s some explanation from wikipedia : Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It is a meringue cake with a crisp crust and soft, light inside, usually topped with fruit and, optionally, whipped cream. Here’s in Old bend, the pavlova is topped by vannila ice cream and garnished with fresh strawberry, watermelon, and nuts, I really love the texture of the pavlova itself , it just really soft like I was eating a whipped cream with some more denser based, yummeh!
Overall I really loved this garage, seems a reluctant to not pay a visit here, such a hidden tastebud gems in the north of Bandung, especially for you!
So, what are you waiting for?
Come try and bullyyourbelly @Old Bens! Godspeed!
