Macaroni House, Pesanggrahan

Curious of the famous Macaroni House that started first by selling it online in 2012 and finally opened its restaurant in 2013 in the West Jakarta area, some food bloggers and I gave it a try.

Grandma Mac and Cheese - Rp. 40.000
Tasted good but I guess my expectation was too high because of so many great reviews that I heard and read.

Vesuvius Fries - Rp. 35.000
I wish for more toppings because it felt that I ended up eating apparently the french fries.

Strawberry Yakult Shake - Rp. 20.000
Dalmation Shake - Rp. 20.000
The Strawberry yakult tasted plainly sweet. The dalmation shake was just chocolate milk with oreo topping on it.

Banana Burn - Rp. 20.000
Grilled sweet banana drizzled with caramel sauce and served with vanilla ice cream. 

 There are cute cartoons about Super Macaroni House.

PAUL Boulangerie et Pâtisserie, Jakarta



It was a shiny beautiful morning when my food blogger friends and I had breakfast at PAUL Bakery in Pacific Place. 

PAUL has a good reputation for the quality and also their pastry chefs are very qualified. But then since they have bakeries in more than 20 countries (there are about 500 PAUL bakery/cafe restaurants around the world) thus their pastry are made frozen for the mass production.

Gaufre Chocolatte - Rp. 45.000
A simple waffle with chocolate sauce. 

Moelleux Choco - Rp. 45.000
It looks that this Moelleux Choco was upside down when it was served. Anyway, this smooth chocolate cake tasted just decent.

Mille Feuille Mangue - Rp. 50.000
Love this puff pastry with mango custard! 

Escargot Aux Raisins - Rp. 22.000
This raisin pastry was good.
Eclair Framboises - Rp. 50.000
A wonderful eclair because of the pretty framboise and not too sweet creamy filling. 

Chausson Pomme + Cappuccino - Rp. 65.000 (package price)
Good flaky pastry with apple filling. I like the sourness of the apple.

Cappuccino.

Damman Freres tea, Vert Menthe Tea - Rp. 40.000

Overall, it was a nice breakfast at PAUL. The taste of the pastry was quite good but my personal opinion about the pastry and prices here are overrated.
