Fresh Bites—March 2017 : New Cafe and Restaurant in Jakarta

New Restaurant Jakarta March 2017

How time flies! It’s time for another Fresh Bites: New Cafe and Restaurant in Jakarta, March 2017 edition. January and February were full of new F&B establishments, and it turned out that March was just the same. At this rate we’re gonna have more than 100 restaurants on Fresh Bites at the end of the year! Not to mention the ones we missed. Isn’t crazy? Any tips on how to keep up with all these new places? =D

1. MAM

2. Smoo Artisan Smoothie Bowl
Besides coffee, healthy food seems to be the norm these days. It’s no surprise that more smoothie bowl joints follow Berrywell and Nalu Bowls’ footsteps, including Smoo. Currently they have 9 choices for you, customizable with nut, seeds, and fruit toppings.

3. Bread & Honey
There’s not much buzz around this place right now, but judging from their Instagram, it seems that Bread & Honey is a bakery that also sells simple dishes like crepes and salad. Located near JIS.

4. HardwareLane
Pluit, you just got yourself caffeinated even more. As of now, there are only a few words about HardwareLane’s coffee, but those brunch dishes do look amazing. Same group with Carnivor and Cut ’n Grill.
