This place needs no introduction anymore. It has been overly mentioned here and there about its food and ambiance as well as its elusive location.

Jam & Kaya Cafe, PJ Palm Sports Centre

The reason I wrote about this place was because I brought my camera along with me on this particular day for a special occasion. It hasn’t seen the day light for quite some time. And so, I guess it was appropriate to bring out before the year ends.

Latte and Iced Caramel Latte

For a non coffee connoisseur, the Latte (RM8.90) and Iced Caramel Latte (RM10.90) were pretty decent (more like above average). Besides that, they were priced well compared to other cafes/coffee joints.

Aussie Big Breakky

Their Aussie Big Breakky (RM22.90) was pretty hearty for breakfast. The plate consisted of scrambled eggs, chicken sausages, ham, crispy hash brown, sautéed mushroom, greens and two slices of bread. I liked the way they prepared the eggs with some chopped chives for some extra flavour. That said, the mushrooms could be better – perhaps cook a lil bit longer.

Jam & Kaya Pancakes

The Jam & Kaya (RM13.50) pancakes were awesome. The pancakes, decorated with sliced strawberries and blueberries, were adequately fluffy and light while the combination of kaya and strawberry jam was brilliant. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it was sinfully good.

Overall, the meal was good. Coupled that with the calm ambiance and affordable pricing, I do concur with the statements made by (mostly) others that Jam & Kaya Café is indeed a nice place to dine… and it is slightly challenging to locate.

.. is one of staple foods in Indonesia. You can literally find it anywhere on the streets, coffee shops, restaurants, food courts and shopping malls. It is simple yet hearty meal which consists of meatballs (usually made of minced beef) and noodles in a bowl of clear broth.

Bakso

Though I couldn’t say I’ve tasted the best, but the one above was pretty good. It has four huge beef balls (larger than golf balls) on top of the noodles. The meatball was full of flavour with right amount of texture to it. This bowl of bakso was expensive (compared to the ones at hawker stalls) but that was because I had it in the airport. But it was alright judging by the portion of meatballs it has and location.

And this is the only photo I took throughout my 3D2N company trip in Batam.
