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.

My sister and her family stayed here 3 years ago, a complimentary for Vivi’s sweet 17th birthday *my lovely niece*, and I was very happy to be back here again. Love the lobby area. Very spacious and friendly. And I just realized that they have children playground there. They also have an area for internet connections. I really love their lobby. Spaciously huge hahaha. High ceiling with elegant stairs.

97sqm. Entertain in style with panoramic Thamrin Roundabout views in a suite. Modern design complements the amenities in a Grand Deluxe Executive such as spacious separate lounge area with dining table and access to Executive Lounge.

Love the huge bathroom too. What about the bedroom? Super love. One thick bed with comfortable pillow. Super cozy. And by the way, they have another toilet in the living room. Fantastic!

Actually you can read my previous review about Sana Sini, just click HERE.

In all the micro-restaurants, the kitchen is open. It lets you see directly the dishes being prepared and watch the expert, talented chefs in action and talk to them about the food they are making for you. This open style creates a lively vibe but does it make the chefs nervous? “No,” says Adeza Hamzah, the Director of Marketing Communications Pullman Jakarta Indonesia. “We work to very high hygiene standards here and with people watching it’s a constant reminder to the chefs to keep up to those standards.”

Open every day with capacity seats of 262 orang

IMG_1901 IMG_1904 IMG_1909 IMG_1912 IMG_1949 IMG_1924 IMG_1923 IMG_1913 IMG_1914 IMG_1919 IMG_1916

And these were what I ate. Well, I ate so much, I wanted to sleep right away after they closed. LOL. I wished I could check-in that day. Hmmm.. I wish..

Chinese Food Section

Mantau Char Siu

This one was delicious. I tried a bite and I wanted to bring this one home for my hubby. Hahaha.. Definitely must ask him to eat here. It’s chicken char siu, but it was so good that I forgave it for not being a pork char siu. LOL.

IMG_1946

* stir fried rice with char siu and vegetable
* deep fried spring roll
* eggplant with Sichuan garlic sauce
* barramundi fish with blackbean sauce

The fried rice was a little bit too dry for me. Tasted good, though. The Spring Roll? Amazing. It was crunchy and crispy. So delicious. I love the eggplant. Perfect texture and well-seasoned. And the Barramundi? Should I say anything? It was very tender and superb. Love them all.

IMG_1922

Japanese Food Section

kerang kampak

The biggest clam I’ve ever seen. It was so big, I had to ask my friend to open it. LOL. As a first timer, I was eating it carefully. But, I wasn’t sorry. It was delicious. Too bad I forgot to eat it over and over again. Huft..

IMG_1927 IMG_1929

* prawn tempura
* fish tempura
* tori katsuni
* salmon sashimi

The prawn and fish tempura were delicious, but nothing really special about it. The Tori Katsuni was another story. It was delicious, I took it over and over again. LOL. Salmon Sashimi? My all time favourite Japanese food. Love it.

IMG_1941

Indonesian Food Section

gudeg with nasi kuning

Gudeg was one of my favourites. The nasi kuning was savoury and fragrant. I love the opor ayam and krecek too. Ugh I wanted to add another portion because the sambal goreng ati was perfect!!! Unfortunately I needed to spare my tummy for desserts!!!

IMG_1945

Desserts section

chocolate fountain

I was in love with this fountain. OMG! I wanted to take it home!! Say no more. Hail to the chocolate!!!

IMG_1954

meringue

Actually, I ate 6 pieces. All by myself. Meringue. Melt in my mouth. Sweet. Love love love. So in love!!! Should bring lock and lock when I come back to Sana Sini. Should bring home some!! Ahahahaha.. I believe Adeza and Intan will hide the meringue from me after they read this review. LOL.

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”! 😀

IMG_2886 IMG_2887 IMG_2888 IMG_2889 IMG_2892 IMG_2895

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 😀

IMG_2939

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.

IMG_2919 IMG_2921 IMG_2923 IMG_2942 IMG_2907 IMG_2912 IMG_2941

After that, it’s time for me to get the voucher. Hahaha.. I was so happy I couldn’t wipe the smile from my face.

Thanks Le Chocolat for the vouchers and the treats. Cannot wait to come back soon.
