    Every dessert in Ala Ritus definitely makes my 2019’s not-to-be-missed desserts (yes some pople make such list).

    Oh, especially their wonderful rendition of traditional desserts.

    Klepon cake is one of them, boasting an enduring appeal with tender texture and melt-in-the-mouth brown sugar fillings.

    Faithful to the original klepon taste, it is a traditional sweet bites that meets modern-day swagger, and it even becomes more relevant with stuffed vanilla cream fillings.

    Krim Bakar Serai (roasted cream with lemongrass) is the type of dessert that will be there in your life when all else fails.

    Its seductively tender texture releases sweetness from cream and sourness from golden berries slices.

    A lot things are going on in Ala Ritus’ beverage area, but they have similarities that never fail to miss.

    Ala Ritus’ beverages game is all about homemade, local drinks inspired by local tradition.

    There is Kecutan Manis, signature punch that features sophisticated flavors buit by the sourness of tamarind, the sweetness of brown sugar, and the freshness of chia seeds.

    Another local favourite is Papatong Koneng, Ala Ritus’ original recipe made of cloves, lemongrass, nutmeg, and little bit of soda.

    Meaning yellow dragonfly in Sundanese, Papatong Koneng is a sipping-friendly drink with total freshness and moderate sweetness. 

    Ala Ritus just reached its first anniversary in May this year, but it has accomplished such innovations worth your surprising dining time.
