February 9th, 2018. In celebration of the most lovely day in the world “Valentine’s Day”, PAUL Indonesia presents a wide array of Valentine’s Menu start from appetizer, main course until dessert from February 12th until March 15th, 2018. When they invited me, I asked them to bring Aline, Cindy and Fiona. But too bad, Fiona couldn’t make it. So, it was just the 3 of us. We were having fun, but we missed you, Fiona. *hugs*
PAUL is a French chain of bakery or cafe restaurants and established in 1889 in the city of Croix, Northern France. It offers a selection of country-style and fancy bread, viennoiserie (croissants, etc.) pastries, cakes and desserts, snacks and sandwiches. It was my first time to PAUL in Plaza Indonesia. I used to go their Pacific Place outlet. In Plaza Indonesia, they divided the place into 2 areas. The indoor area, and semi-outdoor area. It’s actually still inside the mall, but they made the place as we’re in outdoor area, with showcase of baked bread and pastry. Lovely.
Mix berries mojito 45k
Lychee passion soda 45k
Smoothie multifruits 50k
A delectable blend of strawberries, blueberries and red dragon fruit.
Such a thirst-quenching. My favourite *definitely* the lychee passion soda. But if you like other flavour than lychee, you should try their mix berries mojito. Refreshing with pretty presentation. The smoothie multifruits, suitable for those who love smoothie drinks.
Crab Millefeuille 95k
Crab mayo batter, crunchy fritter sheet and lemon mango vinaigrette
Exotic Prawn Tartar 130k
Prawns, coriander ginger sauce, exotic tartar and marinated zucchini tagliatelle
I couldn't choose which one was my favourite from those two starters. The Crab Millefeuille was very delicious with perfect texture of crab. The crunchy fritter sheet was overwhelming. Couldn't stop munching it. Crunchy and crispy with tender texture. Superb! The Exotic Prawn Tartar was also very delicious. The prawn was tender and juicy. Crunchy, bouncy and firm together in one bite.
Valentine Scallops 130k
A melting and crusty rose-shaped potato, surrounded with colourful vegetables and lightly roasted scallops
Beef Tenderloin with Valentine Heart 210k
Tenderloin beef, cinnamon sauce, heart gratin, mini flaky pastry heart, carrot and pear
Valentine Scallops stole my heart in every single bite of the scallop. The scallop was very moist. Soft as a cloud. Love the puree too. Delicious and super tender. The Beef Tenderloin was amazingly delightful with the tenderness. The tenderloin had a delicious coating of savoury seasonings. The heart gratin was superb. Very well-seasoned.

Millefeuille Heart Red Berries 75k

I tried all of the desserts. My favourite was Millefeuille Heart Red Berries. The chantilly cream was dabomb. The second favourite was Éclair au Café. Scrumptious dessert. The coffee crème pâtissière tasted perfectly delicious. The other desserts were good, but not as good as those two. LOL. Just kidding. The other desserts were as good as those two, for sure. But I prefer the Millefeuille Heart Red Berries and Éclair au Café.
Thank you PAUL for the lovely Valentine’s lunch.
