January 19th, 2017. I heard about this place some times ago. They said it’s the best macaron place in Medan. Now, we don’t have to go to Medan to find this one. They opened their first store in Jakarta. And I had the privilege to come with my best friend. I present to you. La Maison Patisserie.
Located in Grand Indonesia East Mall, La Maison was very easy to find since it was dominated by pink colour. When I came to the place, it was quite crowded. Everybody seemed to swarm in the facade. Ordering the macaron and pastry. Inside the place, they had 3 round tables with 4 seats each. They served coffee and tea, also. I saw Executive Pastry Chef Stella Lowis, but she’s so busy so I didn’t want to disturb her.
Macaron wasn’t my favourite, actually. Despite the fact that they’re sometimes too sweet, they’re not good for my tummy. But when I saw the macarons and their cakes, I wonder how it tasted. Those cakes were so beautiful, I wanted to capture them all perpetually.
Box of 6 Macarons 115k
They have various of flavours for the macaron, but we chose only 6 flavours. Earl Grey & Mandarin, Salted Popcorn, Watermelon, Ispahan (lychee, raspberry & rose), Valrhona 70% Guanaja Chocolate, and Peanut Butter & Grape Jelly. Hans chose the earl grey, salted popcorn and watermelon. I chose the rest.
Mademoissele Slice 50k
almond meringue sponge cake / fresh watermelon slice / vanilla bean chantilly cream / strawberries & red rose petals
It was delicious. The combination between the thick vanilla bean chantilly cream with the fluffy almond meringue sponge cake and the fresh watermelon, were like ecstasy. Definitely a cake that you need to bring back your mood after long day of work.
Mini Chloé 50k
lemon curd / toasted coconut meringue / lemon chiffon cake / fresh fruits and flowers
Even though the mademoissele had already caught my heart, but I loved this lemon chiffon cake covered by toasted coconut meringue. The sweet and sour mixed beautifully in my mouth. The toasted coconut meringue was too sweet, and the lemon curd was too sour. But put them together in your mouth, fantastic. Hans thought it’s too sweet, but it’s okay for me. 🙂 One beautiful dessert to be enjoyed in the middle of our meet-up.
Congratulations and welcome to Jakarta. I will be back for more macarons and pastries.
