Huize van Wely the Papilion Kemang Jakarta

Every time I passed by Kemang area, I was always startled by a building there. There was a butterfly with the name the Papilion. The building was made from glasses. I loved it but never knew what it was. “Is it a fine dining restaurant? Or a hotel? Hmm, I wonder.” But I always forgot to find out what it was, until finally I was inside it.

Huize van Wely is a restaurant in the first floor of the Papilion. Huize van Wely, the famed Dutch patisserie that offers hand-made chocolates, bonbons, truffles, pastries, cakes, sweet and savoury biscuits and ice cream, introduces a bistro style eatery that offers all-time favorite local delights, traditional Japanese cuisine and scrumptious western fare. Its contemporary setting makes it the perfect location for business lunches, intimate dinners and family gatherings. I was lucky that on Wednesday, December 11th, 2013, they served Japanese cuisine. I love Japanese food!!! Every Wednesday, they serve a buffet lunch, and rotate the theme every week between Indonesian, Western and Japanese. Only 250k you can eat everything!

Now it’s time for the Japanese food to show-off hihihi 🙂 I don’t know why I’m in love with Japanese food. I cannot resist Japanese food. Love it to the max. I can sit in a Japanese restaurant for hours, like 7 hours max. Yup, 7 hours. 😀

Mochi & Dorayaki

I think everybody know what Dorayaki is 🙂 Dorayaki (どら焼き, どらやき, 銅鑼焼き, ドラ焼き) is a type of Japanese confection, а red bean pancake which consists of two small pancake-like patties made from castella wrapped around a filling of sweet Azuki red bean paste. Dorayaki are similar to Imagawayaki, but the latter are cooked with the batter completely surrounding the bean paste filling and often served hot.

They were all delicious. They even gave me complimentary buns. Different from others, the crust of the bun were a little bit hard to chew at first, but after one bite you could feel the soft and tender buns in your mouth.
