Hello coffee lovers ♥ A new coffee shop has opened in Kelapa Gading! It’s a rebranding shop of Le Epicure cake shop in Hibrida Raya Road. The location is near the Taipei School, passing through the SMAK 5 Penabur. The place is easy to spot, the 3-story building in black with modern style design.
You will be amazed by the indoor’s interior. The 1st floor is the place for eating and ‘nongkrong’ for non-smokers. The wooden-minimalist decoration dominated the place. So cozy and suitable for hangout. The big sofa was so soft, making you don’t want to get out form there.
The 2nd floor was the cashier, kitchen, and the cake display. too bad the cakes were all sold out when I arrived there 😦 There was few seats (long sofa, actually) with small round table on this floor. So modern, minimalist, and cute. The decoration was too good! Couldn’t help myself not to take pictures there.
The 3rd floor is for smoking area. Actually, there are some tables for non-smoking area since the smoking area was separated with the glass door. inside the smoking area, the decoration was so pretty! A line of wooden chairs, looking through the windows directly. Full of air conditioners and comfy sofas there. Perfect for photoshoot! Good lighting from the window.
Here we go for the foods and drinks!
Salted egg Yolk Chicken with Rice (60k)
It was a plate of rice with fried chicken, cooked with the egg yolk, curry leaves, and red chili slices. A sunny side-up was place over the rice. The aroma and taste was so-so, not too tasty, but not too bad. The portion was quiet small for me. The chicken pieces was tender, but not crispy. Actually, they use real salted egg with butter, but the taste was not so strong.
Thai Basil Beef Rice (65k)
A Thailand dish for me. Rice served with beef minced cooked with sweet soy sauce and basil. A sunny side-up was place over the rice. The portion was the same, quiet small. The aroma of basil was good, but looking from the appearance was not tempting. The beef minced was too oily, but tasted good. Sweet and savory in balance.
BBQ Baked Rice Chicken (65k)
A baked rice cooked with BBQ sauce and melted cheese. So yummy and recommended! The chicken pieces was prepared with sweet sauce and fried. The cheese was melted through the rice.The smell of BBQ sauce was not there, but the the rice tasted sweet and savor like the BBQ sauce. I think it was the best dish so far.
Hot Chocolate Latte by KORTE (45k)
Pure cocoa powder was brewed with hot water, making a thick, slightly bitter cocoa drink. It’s a perfect drink in this raining season. The latte art dissolved too quick to be shoot by my camera. Better to shoot it while it was still hot. I love this drink ♥
Carrot juice (30k)
The juice was served in a small jar. So cute! The carrot juice was sweet and quiet thick. Better not to add more sugar if you like real fresh juice.
Cappuccino Latte (35k)
A cup of cappuccino will make this hangout to be more than perfect! The coffee was not as good as any other coffee shop, but still in average score. Not so good, but not bad at all.
Fresh, sparkling, and cold. Perfect for sunny day. For me, it is better to add lime to increase the sourness.
Overall, The Hideout gives the best service and the best place for hangout. The location was far from crowd of Kelapa Gading. The food was good, but still overpriced since the portion was quiet small. The music cheered up the cafe. The place was cool enough for hangout with friends and even for OOTD photoshoot. I think I will come again to this place to try out their dessert menus.
Enjoy your day ♥
