07 Aug Bonjour, Exquise Patisserie.
Living in a big city like Jakarta is surely a fun thing, there are more and more new things to be explored everyday. But sometimes, the big city is just too complicated, and a short break during the weekend is a mandatory.
As you all know, WeTheFoodies is regularly having #chitchatyuk event to meet up a lot of new friends who share the same passion with us. Last #chitchatyuk was held in a small patisserie shop called Exquise Patisserie.
This small patisserie shop is still a fresh from the oven destination, since they just started their operation back in April 2015. Located in Central Jakarta area, inside The Rumah Cokro Complex, Menteng. A specialization in pretty and appetizing cakes.
The story of Exquise begins with the internet, started as an online patisserie, Andrye, the owner decided to build his own empire by leaving his 10 years of banking experience to a small yet beautiful Exquise Pattiserie.
In the cafe, you could find coffee, tea, salads, sandwiches and variant of slices of cakes to be chosen, from the classic red velvet or cheese cake until some pretty cakes with pretty names, such as pierre, cerise, raoul, or helena like the one we tried.
Helena is a Valrhona Guanaja Mousse, with Raspberry Gelee, Pailletine Feuilletin, Nutella, and sprinkled with Coconut Biscuits at the side. The mousse is perfect, and not to sweet to our taste.
Besides Helena, we ordered some other cakes too such as red velvet, mango cheese, juliette, and quiche. For your information, Exquise does serve low-sugar/diet sugar cakes too.Some of their cakes are available in the low sugar version such as pierre and mango cheese. Apparently, Tropicana Slim is the ultimate weapon to low down the sugar proportion.
Cakes are always accompanied either to tea or coffee. Exquise Pattisserie offers you extraordinary coffee with bi-selection (Brewphoria or Espresso based). Brewphoria way, an aeropress brewed coffee, is available in both black and white version. While, for Espresso-based enjoy the selection of espresso, macchiato, piccolo, cappuccino, or other variants type of coffee, you name it.
Last but not least, you also need to go for Emilie. The pretty yellow cake with Mango mousse with Coconut Dacquoise, layered with Vanilla Chantily Cream, Dulce de Leche and Ginger Mango Marmalade. One of our favorite too!
Furthermore, should you be looking for a whole cake for birthday or special occasions, Exquise Pattisserie is always there for you with delivery services 7 times a week.
Got any plans for this weekend? If not, we suggest you to come and enjoy this cafe, sit down and relax yourself with some cakes and coffee, or tea perhaps?
