Puncak Pass Resort

Last Saturday, my parents and I drove all the way from Bekasi to Cisarua to attend my Dad's flight school reunion. We were the first one to arrive at Puncak Pass Resort, the place where the reunion was held, followed by Dad's friend named Denny - along with his family. We decided to settle at the resort's restaurant for some tea and coffee.

"You can have anything you want," said Dad. Although I had a slice of Grilled Cheese Sandwich and a bowl of Chicken Porridge during our trip, I couldn't help but to have the urge to munch something.. blame it on the mountain's low temperature. 

I choose me a cup of Poentjak Tea and a plate of Ice Brownies as my third breakfast set. Poentjak Tea here is made out of freshly harvested tea leaf from the tea plantation in Puncak (or Poentjak). I'm no tea expert, so bare with me. Poentjak Tea tasted different than the Jasmine Tea that I use to drink. It was slightly bitter and, somehow, tasted refreshing.

I also had me a plate of Ice Brownie. Freshly baked chocolate brownie with nuts inside, topped with ice cold Vanilla ice cream, fluffy whipped cream, red cherry, and sweet chocolate. The texture of the brownie was not as I expected it would be, which is fudge-like and slightly melted. The cake was airy and dry in a good way, and crunchy on the outside. The flavor of the chocolate brownie was nicely balanced, not too sweet, nor too bitter. The combination of the hot chocolate brownie and the sweet Vanilla ice cream was of the hook! Who says having ice cream for breakfast is bad for our health?

This is what I had for breakfast. You jealous?
