An Indonesian colleague recommended Anomali to us. So one day while we were thinking of exploring Senopati road, we checked it out. I love the warm interiors that invite customers to have long chats over coffee or read a book in the corner. It reminds me of my college days and hours upon hours spent in the Starbucks across from university. Though this is less commercialized. Check out pictures of interiors, simple lunch and excellent coffee after the jump!
I love the feel of the interiors with the exposed bricks and wood beams!
The theme is pride and passion for local coffee.
I started out with tea for lunch so that I could enjoy the creme brulee coffee for dessert. Hubby had the iced creme brulee latte. I was happy to note that unlike many restaurants that fill iced drinks with ice they had the right amount of ice to keep the beverage cold, but not to water it down or deprive customers of the beverage itself. Plus points! (I observed this being done in a lot of places so I ask for cold drinks minus the ice)
This smoked chicken cranberry sandwich was so yummy. Definitely something I would order again next time I come back!
However the Chicken Picanta was disappointing. The tomatoes were raw. Had they cooked them just a little more, it would have been good! It gave me a bum tummy. Will never order again.
Don’t forget to check out what promos they have with credit cards like the one below.
One of the Indonesian coffee “greats” is Kopi Luwak of course! Or Civet Cat poop coffee, which I did not want to try at all in the past but discovered that with a packet and a half of sugar for a cup, really has some caramel undertones. Not that it makes me wanna drink it though. I will take creme brulee caffe latte any day than spend on “the most expensive coffee in the world” (As seen on Oprah. Haha.)
This lil’ cupcake was the perfect period to our meal. Though don’t expect it to be like those other molten lava chocolate cakes. I think they should just name it chocolate cupcake to manage customers expectations.
There was also free WIFI so I enjoyed posting some photos on my Instagram during the meal. Please don’t mind the way I look, I was still feeling quite unwell. I am better now, though not completely.
If you like to smoke, the entire 2nd floor is your area. There is an air-conditioned and open-air area. I don’t recommend using the toilet here though. I regret going through all that smoke just for that awful toilet because of my asthma. I wish they would put toilets in areas where it is accessible to people with asthma, without going through that smog. Oh and I wish it was cleaner too! (Sadly this is to be expected of a unisex toilet.)
I would definitely go back for the coffee.
Anomali has a simple menu but I love the way they did it! It has to be one of my favorite menus EVER. It’s brilliant really and again harkens to those college days spent in studying in Starbucks with doodles on my notebook.
I saved the menu pics in bigger sizes so you can click on it to enlarge. Enjoy browsing!
