A while ago..We were looking around Tebet to found a nice hangout place to visit..at first We wanted to go to Cafe Du Chocolat, but unfortunately it was closed that day..so We go to Cheese Cake Factory instead..
Chesee Cake Factory..anyone know this cafe?Well..if you love cakes n live in Jakarta, you should already know this place..established around 2004, n said to be the trendsetter in pastries and desserts..hmmm..
We were kinda starving that night, so we end up ordering main courses while the initial plan was just to hangout munching some cakes,hehe..while waiting for the foods, we ordered 2 drinks..one of them was this Red Peach Love (Rp 35k)..hmmm..quite refreshing I'd say.. :)
And the other one, Camomile Tea (Rp 15k)..nice..quite fragrant..
My main was this..Fish En Croute (Rp 65k)..what is En Croute?it's basically a food that has been wrapped with pastry dough and then baked..
well..presentation wise it's a lil' different from the picture..taste wise?hmm..not that impressive..the fish is way to soft, and it didn't blend quite well when eaten with the sauce..hmmm..the vegetables are nice enough though..
Coffeequeendom ordered this, Linguini Stroganof (Rp 50k)..this one is better than mine..beef pasta with sour cream n parmesan, accompanied with garlic bread n a little of pesto around..nice..love the combination of beef, sour cream, n cheese.. :D
It feels something missing if We go to a cake shop without ordering a cake..so We ordered a dessert, Choco Melt and Ice Cream (Rp 45k)..woww..a dessert can always save the day I'd say..nice melted cake..while the ice cream is just ok..(hidup Bakerzin for the ice cream,u yeah.. :D)..
See the oozing melted chocolate?o yeah..
Conclusion..this is quite a nice place to dine in with your partner, even at this Tebet chain the place is not spacy n you'll feel the crowd of people queueing to order some cakes to be taken home..but, still a nice place..just don't forget to order their sweets.. ;)
