Marmalade Pantry is a nice cafe in the corner of Plaza Indonesia Extension. It' not new actually but since I heard some bad reviews about it, I'm reluctant to try. Last night, when I was in super hungry mode (and shocked after seeing Koiki's price list), Me and Ratu Iblis changed our late dinner destination to this place (thanks to Mr. Silet that mentioned this place several times, silently brainwashed me into trying the desserts here).
The place is quite vacant, compared to Kitchenette or Bistro Baron. Last night only 5-6 tables were occupied (yeah! I hate resto's that are too crowded) I like the decor, simple + pale wooden color. This kind of place focuses more on the food rather than the ambiance.
1. Scrambled Egg on Toast with Field Mushroom (Rp. 70.000)
Yummy....! The first thing that comes in mind when Ratu Iblis ordered this was "ahh.. A place like this, the portion must be tiny" and then.... Jeng jeng!!! A big buttered toast covered in scrambled eggs topped with mushroom. 2 chicken sausages and a lot of potato wedges. The toast and scrambled eggs were great! The potato wedges are yummy.. Crispy and spicy :)
2. Chicken and Turkey Bacon Club Sandwich (Rp. 70.000)
Again, I was shocked! 3 layers of whole wheat bread with chicken and slices of turkey bacon. They spread some chopped olive and pickles to the bread so everytime u bite u get a combination of the creamy-ness of mayo and the salty + sourness of pickles and olive. What a great way to make a sandwich. The turkey bacon is a bit too thin, i can't even tell what kind of bacon this is. Maybe if they serve a thicker bacon, it will be perfect. On top of the toast there's this perfectly cooked sunny side egg. Oh so good... They give sweet potato chips instead of french fries. Well maybe coz they think the fries will make the dish too fulfilling. BUT there's no other thing that can replace FRIES as sandwiches and burgers' side dish. Restaurant's out there, please understand this.
3. Sticky Date Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (Rp. 45.000)
Yummylicious!!! My first time of Sticky Date Pudding and I effing love it! This warm dessert perfectly closed my dinner yesterday. What can I say, it's warm, sweet, caramel-y and butter-y, with a nice vanilla bean ice cream (which I'm guessing Gelare's), perfection. Mr. Silet was right, this place has yummy dessert :)
The price might be a little steep but worth a try. I didn't try the meat menu (thanks to the soaring price) and the pasta is a bit too usual. Maybe next time I'll come back to try something else, and of course another dessert
