Dear fellow tasters,
Last Friday, I was invited to a meet and greet event for culinary bloggers organized by SendokGarpu, one of Indonesian restaurants guide website. It was always great to meet other fellow food bloggers and this time, the meeting point was at Kaffein, fX lifestyle X’nter Senayan. The main agenda was to try Kaffein’s holiday beverages and to get acquainted with SendokGarpu and its soon-to-be-released new version of the website. The rest of the time was spent in delightful conversation and foodie information exchange.
About Kaffein, it’s a recently operating local coffee shop under the management of Panorama Group. They currently open three stores, in Mal Taman Anggrek, Panorama Building Tomang, and fX. That evening, we were introduced to Kaffein’s two holiday drinks, the black forest frosty and black forest mochaccino. The frosty is a coffee ice blended drink with sweet black forest recipe flavor, topped with pink whipped cream and green sugary sprinkle, meanwhile the mochaccino is the hot version of the drink with stronger coffee in it. We also tried another favorite non-coffee drink, the oreo cheese cake ice blended which is quite unique because it features grated cheddar cheese on top to give it a cheesy twist.
About SendokGarpu, we were explained by Mr. Sastro Gozali, the founder, about the website and its upcoming features for the new version which includes more social networking functionalities. We also learned about new food venues, dining experiences and other culinary information from each other. Thank you SendokGarpu and Kaffein for meeting and greeting me.
