Le Chocolat Lounge of Pullman Jakarta Indonesia is one of the places to see and to be seen in town. It is not only known for its cosy atmosphere and modern take on decorated sofas and city scenery magnificently framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, the only chocolate lounge in Jakarta recently introduced a delightful chocolate-themed Afternoon Tea Buffet from 3pm to 6pm daily. For only 188k++ per person, guests can delight in selections of savory Indonesian snacks before moving on to the chocolate-inspired cakes, pastries, fondue and more while sipping their choice of signature chocolate drink, tea or coffee.

Le Chocolat Lounge is a very comfortable place. I was happy to be back there again. When I stayed at Pullman, I forgot to bring my hubby to enjoy the lounge. Well, next time I think I will ask him to join me to this Afternoon Chocolate Buffet.

To please the palate while enjoying the signature chocolate drink, the Chefs offer Indonesia’s favorite savory snacks and an extensive choice of delectable flavours on its chocolate buffet spread. Guests can enjoy hot dishes, such as Deep-fried Beancurd with Vegetables, Combro, Fried Cassava with Five Spices, Crab Fritter and Banana Fritter with Cheese. The main star of the buffet is of course the generous selection of chocolate-inspired delicacies, including Chocolate Fountains Trio – Milk Chocolate, Caramel Chocolate and White Chocolate, Mini Chocolate Eclairs, Macarons, Chocolate Spiced Chocolate Fondue Cake, Tiramisu, Spiced Chocolate Ganache Tart and the Caramel Roche. Chocolate lovers can indulge endlessly in assorted praline or the chocolate fondue.

Can you guys imagine, all you can eat, not food, but chocolate? OMG! Have you ever seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? OMG! *drooling* When I saw the movie, I imagined that I was Charlie. I wanted to swim in the chocolate hihihi. And now Le Chocolat made it come true.

Signature Hot Chocolate 60k

Hot milk with Nutty ganache

This is very unique. They give you the hot milk, separate from the nutty ganache. Then, you have to dowse the ganache into the milk until it melts. Then, you drink it. It was so delicious. The best thing about hot chocolate, it’s warming and very comforting, like a big hug in a big mug. It was perfectly thick and creamy. Love every single sip. No wonder it said “Signature”! 😀

Classic Belgium waffle 65k

Red fruit compote and vanilla whip cream.

Waffle is one of the classic American breakfast. It’s so classic that everyone likes it. But actually, some people made the waffle crunchy, and some people made it so soft. I like it in between. Not too crunchy, and not too soft.  The strawberry was sour, as usual, hahahaha.. The vanilla whip cream made it more sweet. So, it’s like sweet and sour waffle 😀

Smoked salmon club sandwich 110k

White or wheat loaf bread, triple decker with Norwegian smoked salmon lettuce, tomato, cucumber and dill-caper mayonnaise, chips.

This was new for me. Usually, club sandwich is using beef or turkey or pork. But, tell you the truth, this delicious smoked salmon was hard to resist. The smoky flavour was not too strong. But when you eat the sandwich, instantly you could taste it. Anyway, I always love club sandwich. Remind me of my childhood. Sandwich was a luxury that time. 🙂

A club sandwich, also called a clubhouse sandwich, is a sandwich with toasted bread.` It is often cut into quarters and held together by hors d’œuvre sticks. It frequently has two layers which are separated by an additional slice of bread.

The classic ingredients for a club sandwich are turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. Other common club sandwiches generally vary the bottom layer, for example a “chicken club” or a “roast beef club” or a “breakfast club”. Variations might include ham (instead of, or in addition to bacon) and/or additional cheese slices. As with a BLT, the club sandwich is usually served on toasted bread. Mayonnaise and mustard and sometimes honey mustard are common condiments. The sandwich is commonly served with a side portion of either coleslaw, or potato salad, and often accompanied by a pickle. The coleslaw or potato salad is often reduced to a “garnish” portion, when the primary side item is an order of French fries or potato chips.

INDONESIAN TRADITIONAL DESSERTS

 I love how they set the traditional desserts in one place. The colour was appetizing. Surprisingly, the taste was very enjoyable. But unfortunately, fighting over food was not allowed. Hahahaha..

IMG_2903 IMG_2904 IMG_2905

While having a great conversation, I noticed that a lovely lady was doing the cooking. So, I approached her. Turns out, she’s the one who makes all the Indonesian traditional desserts. Love all the food that she made that day.
