Classified was originally started in Hong Kong in 2006. The founder wanted to create a new dining concept and bring a European-styled cafe to the people in traditional Hong Kong. After gaining so much success in Hong Kong, Classified started a new journey in another Asian country, which is Indonesia. Indonesia is the first country outside Hong Kong where Classified restaurant operates. The Setiabudi branch is the second one Indonesia, while the first one is in Kemang.
Located on the first floor of Setiabudi One, Classified offers a pretty simple atmosphere of dining with contemporary design. The place is dominated with dark, blue and white colors with some wooden and marble touch.
The coffee that Classified serves is pretty standard and customary. Despite that, the coffee still tastes bold, like the Cafe Latte (IDR 31k).
Food here is pretty decent and complete. From breakfast to pizza, Classified has them all.
I tried the Scrambled Egg, Bacon and Mushroom Bites (IDR 45k). The dish was served with baguette pieces, like a bruschetta. The scrambled egg was really fluffy and the texture of bacon and mushroom was soft as well. These bites may look simple, but they really taste good.
Next is Macaroni and Three Cheese Bake (IDR 95k), one of the most favorite dishes at Classified. Served on a hot pan, Classified’s mac and cheese provides some twist. Classified uses long macaroni, instead of the usual one. The top layer was firm and baked until the perfect gold color. The texture inside was gooey and when mixed, the taste of the three cheese came out.It looked very simple but it was actually just elegant inside. You can add mushroom or tuna if you want as the additional filling.
Classified adopts a classic Italian style for its pizzas. One pizza serves for around two or three persons. I tried the Steak and Cheese Pizza (IDR 99k). The pizza came with Australian rib-eye steak, parmesan and mozzarella and mushroom toppings. I really the pizza crust, it was thin and crispy. The steak was tender as well.
Overall, I like the experience of dining and enjoying coffee here. Simple yet important details at the cafe give the cozy ambience.
