ST. GERMAIN BY CACAOTE GRAND INDONESIA - JAKARTA

After office hour is always a challenge to go home for me and my hubby considering we work at Thamrin area. So before going home, we decided to have dinner around. Our picked goes to St. Germain at Grand Indonesia Mall.


It's almost end of closing time when we arrived. But still try our luck though. Read some of good post regarding this restaurant, make me even curious. St. Germain is a sibling of the finest restaurant Cacaote that located at Senopati. St. Germain located at East Mall of Grand Indonesia UG Level just across the H&M.


Split into two areas, indoor and outdoor. The indoor area, is more like Victorian vintage look. With a chandelier and wooden furniture. Feels like some French restaurant. Meanwhile the outdoor area, is more like replica of street cafe in France that I usually saw in movie. Well I guess, in Jakarta weather like this, so much pollution and can be humid, almost impossible to have nice street cafe like that.

SOUP & SALAD


WILD MUSHROOM SOUP - IDR 60.000
Chives Chantilly, Mini Brioche
Gosh! This mushroom soup is bloody delicious. It felt like I want to lick the bowl. A hearty warm soup with a big chunk of mushroom. The texture not too creamy and milky just wise. Served with mini brioche, not too fluffy, but great pairing.


CAESAR SALAD - IDR 75.000
Baby Romaine, Yoghurt Sumac Dressing, Grilled Chicken
A freshness to start dinner is a must. Luckily, even though its almost end of service time, the vegetables still fresh and crisp. The grilled chicken also marinated well and tender enough. Topped with tortilla to add crispy texture. Love!

MAIN COURSE


OXTAIL & SPINACH RICE - IDR 95.000
Oxtail Chilli Con Carne
When I first saw the appearance, it look not promising.  Well, who would thought that Oxtail in Chilli Con Carne that usually use minced beef can be so yummy. The oxtail texture is tender and the chilli con carne taste not spicy. The tomato paste is perfectly fit.  Meanwhile the spinach rice taste a bit bland. Maybe the chilli it self a balancing to the rice. Topped with soft boiled egg and served with fried wonton chips this food really make your tummy full to the guts.


WAGYU SHORT RIB BURGER - IDR 135.000
Black Bun, Cherry Tomato Chutney, Aged Cheddar
Look at the intimidate burger appearance. How am I going to finish it OMG! The wagyu have big slice and well marinated. The vegetables and the cherry become a neutralize to the generous amount of the cheese. The black charcoal bun eventhough not too soft but moist enough though.

DESSERT


CRUNCHY NUTS - IDR 35.000
Excited to order this cake when I heard the description from the server. But then, I'm not too "nuts" about this cake. The cake taste a bit dry and the bitterness from the dark chocolate not really my things. But I like the crunchiness on top of it though.


MATCHA OPERA - IDR 40.000
Matcha Buttercream, Dark Chocolate Ganache
I like the combination of the matcha and the dark chocolate. The bitterness from the dark chocolate mixed well with the matcha buttercream. The cake texture also moist. So this one is better than the 1st one.


At the end, I feel satisfied with the food and the service that St. Germain gave. Hope the can keep maintain the quality of the food and the service. Surely will comeback some other day.
