Before you ask, there is no relation between 36 and 38. Coincidently angka 38 ini hanya sebuah nomor yang ditempati coffee shop yang berlokasi di Jalan Dagan. *I’ve yet to ask the owner what does that number means 😀

This coffee shop is relatively new, menempati sebuah ruko dengan tema interior yang monochrome.

Di lantai satu hanya terdapat beberapa meja, karena sebagian area telah disekat menjadi dapur dan sebagiannya lagi menjadi bar, but fret not, karena lantai 2 ini maksimal buat seating area.

Not a great view but at least, better than wall38 Coffee Lab was managed by Jaya Pranata, yang sekaligus merangkap sebagai head barista. On their instagram, he’d love to introduced himself as mintjen, sosok admin yang suka berbagi ilmu kopi lewat caption di instagram postnya.

Jaya, Inspecting coffee extraction

Ada beberapa jenis kopi yang disediakan disini, serta penyajian dalam manual brew atau espresso based. Biji kopi houseblend juga didatangkan dari Tanamera, sebuah coffee shop terkemuka di Jakarta.

Piccolo Latte at 20K only!Ideally a coffee shop would only serve good coffee and call it a day, tapi sepertinya di Medan konsep ini belum sepenuhnya sustainable. So here comes the food.

Bihun Goreng Aceh Special — with Beef Stew (38rb)

Has this coffee shop got affiliated with Aceh? I don’t think so, tapi dari namanya ‘Coffee Lab’, I guess they just like to put experiment in their menu, seperti menu ini — Bihun Goreng Aceh, yang mana bihun goreng dimasak dengan bumbu khas Aceh yang rempahnya bold, plus sepotong semur daging.

Another menu yang ga kalah kreatif ialah Mie Aceh sendiri, with a twist.

Mie Aceh yang pada umumnya menggunakan mie telur ini diganti dengan spaghetti, which is quite unique, combining western dengan bumbu nusantara. Menu yang satu ini, tanpa semur daging harganya lebih murah di 28rb

Terdapat beberapa cemilan disini diantaranya Tahu Balik dan Cheese French Fries.

The ultimate must have menu in every cafe — Nasi Goreng Aceh Chicken (28rb)

I like how 38 use “Lab” as their brand name. It’s full of experiment, although some are not mature enough for the market.

Espresso Raspberry, espress mixed with soda water and sirup kurnia, not for the weak heart.

Dari sekian banyak menu yang 38 tawarkan, sepertinya tempat ini lebih cocok dikategorikan sebagai cafe. Saya suka variasi menu dan harga disini, not very expensive in my opinion, while still providing tempat yang nyaman untuk makan atau menghabiskan waktu dalam sebuah diskusi dan cengkerama.
