7 Weekend Afternoon Hangout Places Around Padang: Marcoffee Bistro, El’s Coffee, Rimbun Espresso and Brew Bar

How are we going to loosen up at this point? 2021 is still sort of twinning with 2020. But not to worry (yet) at all - let’s just still continue with our quest for some no-frills chill-out place around Padang! One of the undeniably nice things about this city in Indonesia is the point that it has a very city-kampong sense to it that you just want to abundantly enjoy. It’s really like the other big cities in Indonesia, but it also isn’t too rural enough for you to lose contact with all the benefits of being in a city. It’s a weekend getaway place with a mix of city and suburb activities here and there - undeniably the right place to unwind!

When I visited Padang, I realized that three full days is sufficient enough to just really hang out, relax, and do absolutely nothing at all. Nevertheless, there are more than a mouthful gastronomic hangout places to try out, so maybe I am a bit optimistic and obtaining all the good ones within a few days only! Let’s see again? For now, here are the good ones I’ve gathered - check them out:

After a foodtasting at Gatot Subroto area, I had choices. Went home or waited for hubby to come home together. Then, hubby told me about a new place at his office building. So I decided to visit Marcoffee Bistro, and waited for him there. My hubby picked me up and accompanied me to Marcoffee. After ordered drink and food, I took photos around the place. The place is quite spacious with outdoor area for smoking and indoor area for non smoking. A very nice place for me to blog my review, or just edit photos. When I was there, there were guys busy talking about work, and ladies did some chit chat about their family, and I think there was the owner, had meeting with some people. The place is very good for busy people, I guess. Read more at: https://yennyw.wordpress.com/2018/03/11/marcoffee-bistro-at-menara-jamsostek-gatot-subroto-jakarta/

One of the most favorite drink is Thai tea. Thai Tea is made with a mixture of black tea that is very concentrated and strongly flavored with condensed milk, evaporated milk, and sugar. The ingredients are stirred when the tea is still hot. Its sweet savory taste and its distinctive aroma make it so favorable. Thai tea is a special drink from Thai. In Indonesia, there are many outlets that sell this drink. One outlet you should know is definitely Dum Dum Authentic Thai Tea!

Cobek and Penyet at lower ground of Kota Kasablanka. First impression is the owner is tough and obsessed with long lasting things with tables made of metal water pipes! Looking carefully, this is not really a bad idea, must be cheaper than steel and long lasting.
The resto sells all variety of cobeks and penyets. Tried the deep fried gurami, fresh and good. Tamarind soup (sayur asam) is also good. Price is not cheap, moderate for taste and location.

It's easy to find as it's right next to the Limpapeh Bridge pedestrian overpass (southeast side). There's space for motorbike parking in front. Wi-Fi isn't the fastest (as is the case in much of Sumatra) but if you need more, just grab yourself a SIM card. Telkomsel has 4G coverage in Bukittinggi. Outlets can be found on the baseboards near all tables. Read more at: https://workfrom.co/rimbun-espresso-brew-bar
