Our local tour guide suggested us to have buffet lunch here ( if i could remembered, about RM 20++ per pax)..
Since we went there quite early, so we were able to get nicer seating area where Mount Batuk just in front of us..

The buffet here was not impressive, and the food all tasted quite sweet to our liking even fried rice also tasted sweet !! And I noticed that all restaurant here mainly serve to tourists.

Kopi Luwak (coffee Luwak)

When our tour guide suggested us to visit this farm to try Kopi Luwak. Even I know it is expensive and not worth a try (according to my friends), but I still go as I insist to try this expensive coffee and rare coffee which only could be found in Indonesia.

We ordered a cup of kopi luwak and we got free to try out six difference coffee and tea (i remembered the lemongrass tea was nice) . IDR 50,000 a cup, about RM 15..(not extremely expensive thought)

Is true, this kopi Luwak was nothing special, similar like our local thick coffee here..but at least we tried..
