The Mad Bean: Coffee & Milkshake

The Mad Bean: Coffee & Milkshake

I was introduced to this compact and cozy coffee shop located in Gading Serpong. It goes by the name the Mad Bean, owned by a particular close friend named Dimas. The coffee shop is very simple, yet very attractive, and it has this kind of comforting ambience. There are board games available in the coffee shop if you want to play games with the gang while gulping on a big glass of sweet and creamy Banana Milkshake. Yet, the coffee shop is also recommended if you want to spend some quality time with your book and a cup of good Cappuccino.

At the Mad Bean, you can find good quality and budget friendly food and beverages. Free WiFi is also available in the coffee shop and the internet connection was rather fast compared to some coffee shop that I have been to. 

At first, I was going to go for the Cappuccino, but my stomach was pretty empty at that time and I don't want to risk anything that would make my stomach acid piles up, so I went for the Banana Milkshake instead. 

My Banana Milkshake had a very simple look, served in a big glass and topped with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream. As expected, the milkshake was very creamy and heavy, thank God I made the right choice of beverage that would fill the slot in my stomach fine. It had this nice and balanced level of sweetness, and the banana pretty much dominated the whole flavor of the milkshake - which was a good thing, because I don't like milkshake that tasted sugary. I just love the ice cream on top so much! If only Dimas put another generous scoop, then my milkshake would be perfect.

Spot any minions?

The coffee shop was not that crowded back then, so Dimas had the luxury of joining our table for a game of cards. We ended up spending hours playing poker. It was my first time playing poker and I got pretty lucky with the whole full houses and straights. 

I would definitely go back to the coffee shop to try its' fine selection of caffeinated beverages. Who knows, Dimas might let me make my own cup of late. It has been a while since the last time I draw on espresso anyway.
