With unceasing expertise in coffee crafting, Ottoman’s Coffee Brewers has been, and still is, capturing the hearts of Jakarta’s coffee enthusiasts. After recently residing at Mega Kuningan’s Sopo Del building, Ottoman’s is now calling the Cilandak Town Square as its new home.
Much like its sibling in Sopo Del, the Cilandak venue arrived with a warm and friendly ambience. It’s not surprising to hear a compliment or two from those who walk in, as the scene of the coffee shop is decked out in a vivid colour palette of salmon pink, shades of blue and greens.
As usual, coffee is all the rage here. However, after Sopo Del, patrons should be aware by now that Ottoman’s isn’t just a place to get a good cup of joe. As seen by the row of liquors on the coffee bar, the place serves a range of alcohol and specialty cocktails in the company of the humble caffeinated beverage.
If you fancy, have a sip of the Lemon Tree that mixes lemon, lime and orange with citrus-infused rum and sapphire gin, or try the lively Arabica Princess. Enriched with vanilla bean gelato, the cocktail fuses baileys, Kahlua, a shot of espresso and coffee-infused vodka.
The menu here also deserves their own spotlight, full of mouthwatering fares to fit the occasion. As a starter, the Fire Spicy Salmon Cracker Toast on crispy brioche toast is good for sharing. Or perhaps, the Balinese Spice Chicken Satay with kecombrang salsa, if you’re after for some heat to kick off your lunch or dinner.
For a satisfying meal, it would be a tough choice between the Chicken Betutu Rice and the Flash Grill Miso Salmon and Dynamite Salmon. The former is a hearty bowl of grilled chicken, Balinese lawar vegetables with sambal matah. Meanwhile, the latter resembles a poké bowl, where it comes with a burst of umami with salmon cooked two ways, served over tasty furikake rice, wakame and 63-degree egg.
With this latest offering, it’s safe to say that Ottoman’s is not holding back in their quest to build a solid stronghold in the city’s F&B scene. Full of good food, coffee and drinks, what more can you need? Especially after the arrival of their specialty cocktails, now all parties are welcomed with ease.
