4. Pikachu Latte Art
AnakJajan’ve seen in instagram that lately there are few of coffee shops that start to make Pokemon inspired latte art, so when we were hanging out with our friend at Coffee Kulture Baywalk Mall, we asked the barista to make one for us. He kindly agreed to make Pikachu latte art and succeed in second attempt.
If you visit any coffee shop, if the shop isn’t too crowded at that moment, you can try your luck in asking for Pokemon inspired latte art.
Coincidentally all of the Pokemon inspired food are located nearby in Pantai Indah Kapuk and Pluit area, therefore you can plan your Pokemon ‘hunt’ easily in one day.
Along with the time, AnakJajan are sure that there will be more and more Pokemon inspired food popping out in Jakarta, I’m gonna update the list when we find a new ‘catch’ 🙂 LET’S CATCH ‘EM ALL!!
