Paul Bakery and Patisserie Indonesia

Been a while since I know about this Paul Bakery and Patisserie. I even often passing through infront of their restaurant. But never got a chance to visit Paul Bakery and Patisserie. Luckily, my ancient mates suddenly called me and asked me to meet her near in her office. Miss her since never meet her in a while. So we agree to meet at PAUL.

PAUL first founded in 1889 and already expand to many countries delivered the authentic bakery and french dish to the whole world. But just around December 2013, PAUL came to Jakarta. Placed at outside the Galleries Lafayette Pacific Place Jakarta, PAUL is so ready battle with many French restaurant in Jakarta.

When we arrived at PAUL that afternoon, the restaurant looked packed with Jakartans.We have to wait the waitress find us seat. Not for long, finally we got our seat inside the restaurant. For outdoors area is specially for the smokers.

Since I stepped in to the PAUL area, I already felt like I'm in the cafe in street of Paris. Yeaasshh... I never been there, but from I've seen from movie or magazine, it really captured the Paris ambiance. The big window around the cafe, make the not too big cafe looked more bigger and spacious. Loved the combination between the wooden and the black and white tiles. So classic yet modern.

PAUL also separated their dining area with the bakery area. However, we still can eat the bakery in the restaurant with extra charge. If you want more intimate, better you sit in the bakery area like the picture above.

Outdoor Area

Kinda confuse to select what we're going to order. Everything on the menu looked so tempting. Specially when I saw the pastry display. I felt like a kid in candy store.

Crêpe Mixte - IDR 90.000
Turkey Ham and Emmental Cheese 
Looovveee to death with this thin French Crepe.  The crepe was so smooth and delicate. And look at the filling. PAUL give it so generous. Turkey Ham really mixed together with the emmental cheese. It so melted in my mouth. Served with shallots and parsley salad with balsamic vinegar dressing. 

Ham & Cheese Croissant - IDR 75.000
Turkey Ham, Emmental Cheese, Béchamel Sauce and Croissant
I also love this croissant. It still warm when arrived to our table.  The texture was so crisp, crunchy but still moist. The crisp texture also came from the cheese that cooked till it dry. Turkey ham texture was so smooth. Blend well with the Béchamel Sauce. Served with shallots and parsley salad with balsamic vinegar dressing. 


Like I told you earlier aight? I'm so drooling look at their bakery and pastry display. So, beside I ordered it for dessert after me and my friend meal, I also bought some for to take away.

Eclairs Aux Framboises - IDR 50.000
Traditional Choux Pastry with Raspberries and Whipped Cream
First I looked at this eclairs in their display, I already felt in love. It looked so gorgeous and tempting. The first bite really blew me away. The choux pastry taste a bit crisp, chewy yet moist. The consistency is really great. Whipped cream also not too sweet. So its not make overwhelmed. Its all balance with the sourness from the fresh raspberries.  

As for me for take away, I bought croissant  and Fougasse (bread). See so many varieties of bread make me a bit confuse and felt like want to grab all (again LOL)...

Fougasse Provencale - IDR 25.000
PAUL White Flour, Sundried Tomato, Olives, Yeast, Salt, Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This big fougasse taste really rich. A bit tangy from the olives. The sundries tomato still taste fresh. The texture is really chewy. Really good if paired this with Cream Soup.

Pain Au Chocolat - IDR 22.000
Buttery chocolate croissant with flaky texture on the dough. The chocolate is very rich. Really great if pairing it with hot chocolate.

Nos Thês Glacês - IDR 45.000
We ordered Lemon Ice Tea and Mint Iced Tea that day. Both of the teas are freshening. There's also Iced Tea Of the day that you can order with the price IDR 45.000

Overall, it was so much find to get experience dine in PAUL. I surely will comeback here for more than PAUL's menu and bakery. I guess they already increase their service here. Because not like in several reviews that I read, the service here quite nice. From the start I walk through the door until I finished my meal here. I guess I'm lucky enough.
