Good Coffee, Bad Food
day is my second day in a row coming to Ruci's. I was here yesterday to do some work on my laptop and had a pleasant experience working at the cafe. I ordered an iced latte which tasted great but was surprised by how small it was. Oh well, for 33k it was fine. Today I came with the intention of also eating lunch while I worked but that was a big mistake! I ordered the "Grilled Chicken Confit Sandwich" (50k) and it was shockingly bad. On first appearance it actually looked yummy as its served on fluffy, almost brioche style bread, but I was gravely mistaken. The sandwich literally was just toasted bread with very dry, shredded chicken. The menu described it as having dijon mustard and cheddar cheese, which were both missing from my toastie. Upon asking the waiter for clarification, he told me that the menu has changed since it was printed and they no longer make it that way, but would take it back and see what he could do. Five minutes later my sammie returned with one measly slice of cold cheese and again no dijon inside. However, they did bring me a small dish of pungent yellow mustard to spread on myself. I also ordered the "Truffle Fries" (45k) as a side. The flavour was good and there was a decent amount of parmesan but you could tell that whoever made them had very little experience in french-fry making. The fries were sodden with oil and were served quite cold. My friend tried the "Avocado on Toast + Egg Any Style" (50k) where she requested a poached egg with feta cheese. It was enjoyable for the most part, but the egg was unfortunately served cold and the sourdough was hard. Anyway, the prices are low so Im not expecting a five star meal, but at least serve the food warm and as described on the menu. Alternatively, I've had friends try the Indonesian food items, such as the "Corned Beef Rice with Sambal Matah" (85k) in the past and said it was yummy. I'll come back to do work and have a coffee, but will definitely not be ordering the food here again. (Only complaining because I’m a professional Chef!)

Cozy place for hangout
Suasananya cozy banget untuk chit chat atau hangout after work. Makanan dan minumannya enak, walaupun porsinya kecil, harga masih masuk akal..

suasana yang baik
Tempat favorit, harga makanan dan minuman yang sangat terjangkau. Benar-benar nyaman, suasana yang baik. Nyaman untuk nongkrong. Rasanya begitu baik, dengan harga yang sangat wajar untuk pesanan saya Green Beast Bowls.
