Koffie Warung Tinggi Jakarta

The coffee shop scene in Jakarta has been growing rapidly and for a coffee enthusiast like me, it has been really-really fun, and a new coffee joint/kopitiam is now opening, brewing and feeding y'all hungry tummy, give it up for the new 'baby': Koffie Warung Tinggi a/h Tek Soen Hoo!

This particular coffee shop claimed itself to be one of the most legendary coffee shops in Jakarta and has been on the scene since 1878, frankly speaking I just knew this, probably because of its placement in the more happening and famous area like Grand Indonesia shopping mall. Koffie Warung Tinggi is being organized under the Opco group which by the way also managed some famous names like Yellowfin, Portico, Stark Bierhaus, Domain and many more.

Koffie Warung Tinggi is actually pretty spacious with dark colors and dim light all over the cafe, I noticed it didn't have any separation between the smoking and non-smoking area which sort of unfortunate for me, but I would say that how they set the seating and the ambiance of the room was pretty convenient, plus I noticed they had pretty good Wi-Fi connection, there's a thing with Wi-Fi connection lately, honestly, I am such a sucker for internet connection, it's almost like everytime I noticed a cafe without Wi-Fi I would skip. I know that sounded so lame but I just need wi-fi okay! Don't tell me you don't open your social medias or doing your business even when you're eating, it's like the biggest lie ever.

I didn't order that much, but I think you know how "my not much" is not much ;).

Beside coffee as the main star, they also had range of appetizers, main courses (Indonesian-Dutch-Chinese), mocktails and desserts for you to choose. I ordered their peach ice tea (IDR 32k), hot tea (IDR 28k), and one plate of Nasi Uduk (IDR 48k). Okay, the peach tea was pretty refreshing and fragrant but I guess you know the measurement of how good ice tea can be right, their hot tea was exactly...how tea tasted like (-.-), it's available in some flavors that you can choose depending on your preference and they're refillable (hot water). Their version of Nasi Uduk was pretty good along with the distrubing nice fragrance and appetizing look, but I guess if they push the kick from the seasoning of Nasi Uduk, that would be better, you know the feeling when you're reaching 80% of the food climax and went "uh...", just a little more and it would probably be perfect.

I know right, not the best way to explain how good the food was.

Peach Ice Tea
IDR 32k

Hot Tea
IDR 28k

Despite the almost perfect Nasi Uduk, gotta love the fried chicken, it was really good, cripsy, nicely seasoned with perfect savoriness to it. The soya beancurd and soya bean cake were just okay.

Gotta be back for more trials, I had my eye on their Bitterballen and cakes but I was too full that time so I skipped. Overall I had a pretty convenient experience here, and yes thanks again to the awesome Wi-Fi connection! (Gotta stop the emphasizing the Wi-Fi!).

I had high expectations for this coffee shop and looking at the amount of costumers coming to have a pleasure time here was like noticing hope, good luck and welcome to the jungle Koffie Warung Tinggi!

  2. Saya sudah baca beberapa review tentang Warung Tinggi dan hal tsb membuat saya tertarik untuk mengunjunginya hari ini.

    Namun saya kecewa! Saya order 3 makanan dan semua makanan keluar setelah 1 jam!
    Sudah gitu, seluruh makanan DINGIN semua :(

    Saya jadi bingung, ini Warung Tinggi atau Solaridong yang masaknya lama? Masih mending di Solaridong, walaupun lama tapi masakan masih panas. Dan meja di depan saya, samping saya dan di belakang saya pun bernasip sama...

    Warung tinggi, hari ini sudah bikin emosi saya tinggi

  3. I've tried their version of nasi uduk, but I was very disappointed. I would prefer a street side version or Kafe Bet*** anytime. The tofu tasted sour, the rice was really hard to swallow. I will only come back for their peranakan coffee. But that's about it.
