Nowadays, we’ve been very lazy to go to coffee shop to capture some photos. That’s all because we thought that our photos will look the same somehow, so we tried to find other places such as dessert houses or gelato corner or something to chill. That day, we wanted to go to this place called Shophaus in Menteng but it was saddening because that place was packed up with hundreds of people and I just couldn’t wait more than 15 minutes. I don’t suggest you go there in the afternoon. You won’t find a place to sit.
Because of that problem, we tried to move to another place. Since there was no great place beside it, I was suggesting that we should go to this place to chill, Anomali Coffee. It’s not a new spot in town, but I thought it will be good enough for us to converse.
Actually, this place was quite big. The lighting was not dark and it wasn’t showered with the good natural lights too. It was totally mood-drowning for me. I like a coffee house that has decent natural lights so we could get decent-lighted photos. We found a spot to sit with better lighting somehow.
We ordered a cup of cappuccino (35k), a cup of green tea latte (42k), and a plate of cinnamon rolls. Not the cheapest place in town, I tell you.
The cappuccino tasted alright, no complain but no praises either. It was just okay.
The green tea latte was somehow too creamy to the point that I thought that I ordered milk with matcha flavor. The green tea tasted too light. I didn’t like it at all. We told them to make the cream thicker so the latte art wouldn’t get wasted so easily. It’s an important thing to tell the baristas if you want to capture them.
The cinnamon rolls were the highlight of the day. I loved the glazed surface of this cinnamon rolls, moreover, there are raisins inside of the fluffy bread. The texture was reminding me of the texture of a croissant. We liked it a lot.
This place was a good place to chill with your friends because it’s not too noisy.
