Sandwich is one of the world's largest food categories. Nowadays, more and more people are looking for the original taste of the bread makers with quality fresh ingredients. And on this time, you'll find Yo'Panino which also comes with freshness and provide 8 flavours of Cold Pressed Juices.

"Made Great Sandwich" is the tagline of Yo'Panino and bring subs to Jakarta is the ambition of Yo'Panino to provide an alternative for the people of Jakarta. And to ensure the subs in accordance with local flavor and international standards, Yo'Panino also involves a cake-maker of Baker & Pattiserrie, Dean Brettschneider - which is also known as the Global Baker.

And now it's time to sample some of the menu Yo'Panino! Come and join with me!


Java Tempe Salad

Java Tempe Salad (IDR 49.000), it was a uniqueness from Yo'Panino. Maybe a salad usually served with a western style, but this time, I tasted the salad with Indonesian style. How it was? Surely, it was pretty good and make me hooked! Just simply consist of crispy tempe, spiced java slaw and chopped romaine lettuce. You should try! :)

Avo-Mango Prawn Salad

Getting healthy for awhile? Hmm, I don't think so! But I just tried Avo-Mango Prawn Salad (IDR 69.000), looks so greenish and also really fresh, served with grilled prawns, slices of avocado and mango, spiced lime dressing and freshly chopped mesclun & arugula. Overall, this salad can be quite good, but there's a sense that it's just too strong in the seasoning, idk what it was. Hehe.


And for the sauce, Yo'Panino provide 5 different flavors to accompany your favourite menu, such as : Yo Aioli, Yo Angry, Yo Java, Yo Wasabi, Yo Barbecue. Pick one as you like!

Fresh Cut Fries and Chick Pops

Now, start with something small, called it as sidekicks! Yeah, it was Fresh Cut Fries (IDR 15.000) and Chick Pops (IDR 24.000), a small portion wasn't enough, because 'me so likey!' You can feel the crunchiness but the meat still tender.

Buffalo Wings

NEXT! Buffalo Wings (IDR 27.000 for 4 pcs), hmm ya, it looks like a usual chicken wings. I'm sure, you already know how the taste of this food. Haha. For me, it a lil bit spicy. 

Sloppy Joe

Sloppy Joe (IDR 69.000), one of a new menu and it become my favourite! I love it from the first bite, haha. Surely, it was a ground beef with their special sauce, cheddar melt and served on Toasty Farmhouse White.

Philly Cheese Steak

Hot Java Chick Wrap

Hot Java Chick Wrap (IDR 49.000), this is one of Yo'Signature which consist of grilled chicken, edamame, spiced java slaw, crispy wontons and wrapped with tortilla. This one was good enough and the uniqueness is I can find edamame on it, haha! :)

Yo'Pressed Juices


Cold pressed juices are one of love and patience. The fresh fruits and vegetables are pressed using a hydraulic press juicer that applies a tremendous amount of pressure to extract the nectar directly from the pulp. Yo’Pressed Juice (IDR 39.000) is simply the closest thing to raw, pure fruit or vegetables and allows you to get a concentrated amount of nutrients. And because of this process, Yo’Pressed Juices should be enjoyed within 2 days of purchase and always keep refrigerated. Once opened to be consumed within 24 hours.

Yo’Pressed Juice are available in 4 flavors :
  • Liquid Sunshine (coconut water and orange)
  • Tropical Greens (coconut water, pineapple, spinach, lemon and mint)

  • Aloha Yo! (coconut water and pineapple)

Coconut Squares Cake

Coconut Squares Cake (IDR 18.000), may at first glance look like a brownies, but this is a coconut cake! And you will really feel pretty strong of the coconut aroma. In addition, this cake is very tasty and smooth. Me likey!

Banana Cake

Banana Cake (IDR 18.000), just another cake from Yo'Panino before we went home. Yeay! The last we're having a banana cake! Smooth sponge cake and enjoy the banana aroma.

[NEW] SONG FA BAK KUT TEH JAKARTA

Song Fa Bak Kut Teh, a name that has become etched in the minds of many Singaporeans since 1969. As a young man, founder Mr. Yeo Eng Song diligently worked as an assistant in a stall selling the traditional Teochew dish, acquiring valuable skills. Equipped with an enterprising spirit and a deep-rooted appreciation for Bak Kut Teh, he subsequently established the original Song Fa Bak Kut Teh at Victoria Street. He also innovated several side dishes to complement the peppery, aromatic soup. Today, this popular yet authentic dish has attained remarkable results, and Song Fa has no doubt earned its prominent place in the local food scene.


With a delicate selection of antique ornaments and old school furniture, diners are invited into a comfortable setting that invokes fond memories in many of the older generations. As customers savour the Bak Kut Teh while basking in the ambience, they're able to appreciate the rich cultural heritage that lies behind this simple dish.


Salted Vegetables

Salted Vegetables (IDR 18.000 / IDR 28.000 / IDR 38.000), this might be one of the typical food that you ordered when Bak Kut Teh was presented. Salted vegetable here was quite tasty and crisp, it's a perfect match for Bak Kut Teh.

Kai Lan

Kai Lan (IDR 30.000 / IDR 48.000 / IDR 68.000),  just a vegetable that is also known as Chinese broccoli, its flavor is very similar like of broccoli, but slightly more bitter. Common preparations include kai lan stir-fried with ginger and garlic, and boiled or steamed and served with oyster sauce.

Braised Pig's Intestine

Braised Pig's Intestine (IDR 30.000 / IDR 45.000), this is one of my favorite, pig intestines! Perhaps many of you who don't like this, but trust me! that this is very good, HAHA!

Pork Tenderloin

Pork Tenderloin (IDR 55.000 / IDR 72.000) was so perfect for me, because I'm a pork lover! HAHA. It looks so simple but the meat was smooth and juicy enough. Hmm, anyway I really in love with their broth!

Pork Ribs

Pork Ribs (IDR 88.000) - just another 'shape' of pork for sure! It was also good and tasty. The difference is due to the ribs (with bone) then a little bit of a hassle to eat this menu.

Overall, this restaurant is quite good, but it's just that you have to be patient if you want to enjoy the food here, because the queue is quite long. Good luck! HAHA.

[NEW] WOODPECKER COFFEE

Woodpecker Coffee is another invention from Common House team, which also manages the popular one, Mama Goose Restaurant & Bar. Okay, it's time for me to explore this place, coffee and snacks!


It was one of the new coffee shop in the area of Panglima Polim, located just next to HolyGyu! and also located opposite to Mangia, Taco Local and Orbis Store. Probably, it was pretty easy to find this place, but maybe you missed this place, because there's no signage that you can see through, only the 'woodpecker bird' logo that you'll find near the entrance.


Since the very beginning, their love for coffee is very strong and it was an easy decision for them to provide coffee enthusiasts in Jakarta a proper neighborhood coffee shop. And Woodpecker Coffee will become a-must destination and hang out place both for locals and others.


And don't be surprised! You can also find some imported magazines here and this can be said to be one of my favorite magazines. Besides monocle, you can also find some Japanese magazines here, or maybe you can use it as a property when you want to capture your coffee / food. HAHA.


While waiting for the coffee, you can also directly see the baristas who are preparing for your coffee. And if you're curious, you can directly ask them, they're so friendly.


Affogato

And this time, I want to taste their Affogato (IDR 20.000), I think the coffee here is quite good, but on this menu, its coffee was served with quite high acid content, but it would be very suitable if eaten with vanilla ice cream.

Caffe Latte

And the next, my partner from Eshtravaganza was choose for Caffe Latte (IDR 25.000). He said this coffee was good enough and I try to taste it, okay! I got the smoothness from its! Cheers! :)

Oreo Waffle with Nutella

Tadaa! We save the best for the last! NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBE! It was Oreo Waffle (IDR 15.000) and topped with Nutella (IDR 10.000). Can you imagine how it taste? If you don't, you should come here and taste it by yourself! Perfectness level upgraded!
