Pantai Indah Kapuk neighborhood, in North Jakarta, seems to never stop pampering culinary lovers. Previously, Check In Jakarta had discussed a new culinary destination called Pantjoran PIK with thick Chinese vibes. Now, it's our turn to discuss Urban Farm, which is also a new culinary spot in PIK. As the name implies, this place comes with eco friendly concept, where visitors are invited to feel the sensation of eating in the middle of a garden.
“From whichever direction they sit, visitors can definitely see the garden and enjoy nature. Apart from that, they can also learn to cultivate crops and bring home the existing crops," said COO of Retail and Commercial Division 2 Agung Sedayu Group Sawitri Setiawan in a press statement, quoted by Kompas.com.
You could say, Urban Farm is a farming destination for recreation and education that combines love for culinary, nature, and outdoor atmosphere. This culinary destination in PIK has modern and pleasing design of space and buildings.
Urban Farm is inhabited by three choices of interesting places that are familiar to your ears, GIOI, Kinetic Farm, and Toby's Estate. At GIOI, you can taste a variety of Indonesian and Asian specialties with ingredients taken directly from farmers. Some of the signature dishes at this cafe are Serundeng Rack of Lamb and Chimichurri Pork Chop.
Meanwhile, Toby's Estate is the right place for coffee connoisseurs. This coffee shop in PIK is ready to indulge your tongue with specialty coffee from Australia. In addition, Toby's Estate also introduces various types of coffee and sources of coffee plantations from around the world. Here, you can also enjoy coffee while accompanied by a plate of mouthwatering brunch dishes such as Smashed Avo on Toast.
Interestingly, Urban Farm also presents Kinetic Farm, which campaigns for a gardening culture by making it a research farm and eco living shop. You can also buy various types of organic, hydroponic, herbs, and edible flowers. If you are satisfied with shopping for plants, you can sip a drink made of flowers in Kinetic Farm's tiny cafe.
