Last Thursday evening, I was invited to have a food tasting at Firenze Cafe, located in Kemang, South Jakarta. I met the owner of Firenze Kemang, Mr. Andreas Diantoro and Mr. Eddi Mak. They told me this Cafe has just opened for about two months and is using a Triattoria concept (a place less formal than restaurant). The chef who is behind the delicious food in Firenze Kemang is Chef Luigi P. Palandri from Florence, Italy.

It took 5 minutes to bake a thin crust pizza and if you want a really crispy thin crust pizza, just ask them to bake your pizza for 7 minutes.
