KOI Kafe & Galeri
I found my new favorite restaurant and furniture store here in Jakarta. This past Saturday our friends took us to a cafe restaurant called KOI in Kemang, Jakarta. I fell in love with the restaurant and the furniture store immediately. Every time I go out to a mall or other places in Jakarta, I am impressed by how beautiful Indonesian designs are. I like Indonesian’s modern designs with a melange of tropical flavor. In general Indonesian designs are simple, natural and beautiful and the colors they use are chic. I often see white, gray, mocha brown, black, sage green, and sometimes they use accent colors like yellow, red and blue. I think that the rate of seeing cafes, restaurants and shops that have stylish interior is very high in this city. It is fun to just walk around and get inspired by the designs that jump into my sight.
I walked around in the gallery and looked at pieces of furniture. I would love to have them, so I looked at the price and choked. If you know me, I’m a big fan of IKEA not only because of the designs, but also because of the reasonable prices. The furniture sold at the store was out of our league unfortunately, but I was quite inspired by seeing the pieces! If you are interested in looking at more of their furniture, please visit here and here.
We went to KOI Cafe Restaurant for brunch. Their food was great. Once again I do not have photos of the food we ordered. When you have kids, sometimes you don’t have the time to take photos before you serve the food to your kids because you have to feed the beasts! I ordered blueberry pancakes and French toast for the girls and eggs, sausage and spinach for myself. I ate some of the pancakes and French toast as well and everything was tasty. This restaurant has become one of my favorite places to go. Kemang area seems to be a hip place to hang out. There are many stylish stores there. I cannot wait to go back to find out more about the area.
