Daebak Fan Cafe

A few days ago, my friends, Putty and Tika, and I went to Daebak Fan Cafe. It is first cafe in Indonesia which brings Korean Fan Cafe concept. Owned by four Faculty of Engineering of Universitas Indonesia students, Daebak is located in Jalan Margonda Raya Depok, not so far from our campus.

Daebak 대박  is an expression for saying 'awesome' or 'great'. There is a story behind the logo of Daebak. The logo is called Daebak Typhoon, shaped like swirling wind. Red, blue, and yellow colors mean harmony and cheerfulness. Also if you can see the detail there is Mega Mendung pattern, they want to give Indonesia touch also.

Ban Ki Moon! Hwaiting!

The first floor of Daebak is only for kitchen, so we have to go to upstairs. The walkway is narrow either the stair. The second flour is the area for dining. We sat in the near of the window. There are many posters and pictures of Korean celebrity. CN-Blue, IU, Shinee, and so on. For me and Tika, we're not interested in Korean boyband and stuffs. But Putty who is, she knows all the celebrity that the pictures hung on the wall.

Also in the wall, there are so many colored Post-It that written by the guests. We wanted to write message too and stick it on the wall but the cashier said the Post-It was out of stock >,<

For the menu we ordered Ramyeon, Sundubu Jjigae, Omurice, Kimchi Jeon, and Tteokpokki. Here they are:

1. Kimchi Jeon
Spicy kimchi with vegetable pancake and soy sauce. Rp 18.181
I like this and it is not expensive compared to pajeon sold in other Korean restaurants.

2. Omurice
Fried rice with beef a la Rooftop Prince drama with omelette and tomato sauce on top of it. Rp 28.181
I like it plus it is not spicy. My favorite of all we ordered.

3. Ramyeon
Korean spicy noodle. Rp 30.000.
So-so, for me it is more like Indomie but very spicy.

4. Sundubu Jjigae
Spicy tofu soup with beef slice and beef broth. Rp 34.545.
My tongue couldn't tolerate with its spiciness.

 5. Tteokpokki
The famous Korean spicy rice cake. Served with odeng and egg. Rp 29.090
First time I saw tteokpokki with boiled egg garnish. Not bad lah ^^

Our drinks!

Apple Iced Tea and Pear Iced Tea
Daebak specialty of signature Korean Tea, made by real fruit jam imported from Korea. Rp 16.363

Fandom Punch
Daebak has drink menu called Fandom Punch. It is named with celebrity and boy/girlbands name. Rp 13.636
Minty Forest - Lee Seung Gi
Peach Pandora - Kara

I'm very impressed with the owners because they're still young but already owned a nice restaurant. Though I'm not a Korea fan but I feel the 'fan' atmosphere there. Don't expect the it is REAL Korean Restaurant, as they don't serve many free side dishes and free refill drink. But the prices are affordable and I'm sure all Indonesian young Korea fans would love Daebak Fan Cafe.
