[NEW SPOT] Coffee Break Time at Sensory Lab MKG

Yay! We have good news for those who live in the North Jakarta! As you can see, new coffee shops are popping up every few weeks, it sounds crazy, right? So here, I want to share a bit of story from our visit to the newly opened coffee shop, Sensory Lab, which is worth visiting. Located at the lobby entrance of MKG3 (Mall Kelapa Gading 3), you’ll find this coffee shop that has been open since May 9, 2017. Well, that means you got a nice new hangout spot to relax with your friends in this mall. The place was very crowded, so we decided to sit in the small seating area in the lobby because I felt the seating inside the room was too packed with people.

From their menu, there are lots of brunches or breakfast menus which is pretty unique when compared to other coffee shops, such as Jerk Chicken Caesar Salad, Fri-ken Benedict, Pork Chorizo and Baked Beans Casserole, etc. But, because we came there after lunch, so we ordered something light; Garlic Truffle Fries and Vanilla Panna Cotta. For drinks, we ordered Iced Matcha Latte (IDR 35K), and Hot Cappuccino (IDR 39K).

Truffle Fries, IDR 45K

Fries or anything with truffle is one of my weakness in life. So, when I read they have Truffle Fries on their menu, I quickly ordered it. The fries had a beautiful golden brown exterior, full of garlic and truffle aroma, that I just couldn’t stop munching!

Vanilla Panna Cotta, IDR 55K

Although this was a simple Vanilla Panna Cotta which is also available elsewhere, I still felt that this was one of the best pannacotta, especially when they pair it with granola, cranberries, and fresh oranges on the side. It tasted light and clean, without being too sweet.

The coffee was well brewed and tasted quite strong for me. If you want to skip coffee, I suggest you try their Iced Matcha Latte. It tasted light, not powdery, and very refreshing! The barista, Niko, happens to be here too. We chatted a bit, and then I realized that Sensory Lab is a franchise brand from Melbourne, managed by the same owner with Common Grounds Coffee Shop as well, and he’s part of it. Aha!!

Well, not just coffee, and some food, but you can easily get the famous macaron brand from Medan, La Maison, inside this coffee shop. So, that’s all from our quick visit to Sensory Lab MKG yesterday. Overall, their food and coffee were enjoyable. So, if you’re coffee enthusiasts, I strongly recommend you to experience their coffee. Congrats for the Grand Opening!
