Whenever a new upmarket restaurant opened in Jakarta, people always flocked there. Cacaoté is no different. Since it opened in early September, many have gone there to try the food. SC and I are usually not that enthusiastic to try such fancy restaurants, but two things piqued our interest. First, this is a restaurant selling chocolate cakes as the name implies, and second, we found out that there is a clear separation between smoking and non-smoking section from other people’s reviews. SC is always on the lookout for a place serving good chocolate dessert, so we went there several days ago, just for the sake of curiosity.

From the exterior, Cacaoté have a classic & cheerful design, the interior is cute, with classic french atmosphere with the array of delightful dessert, screaming for us to eat them. The first floor is designated for non-smoking guests. I didn’t bother to check out the second floor since it’s for smokers. The first floor dining area is dominated by white and pink colors with crystal chandeliers hanging on the ceiling. In my opinion, it gives the ambience a very romantic vibe. The seating is a bit cramped though, so it can feel slightly uncomfortable when there are guests at every table. Well enough with the interior, lets start with the food.

Apparently, Cacaoté list of french dishes is quite short. We decided to have something for lunch first before we sampled the dessert. So we ordered a portion of duck confit 130K to share.

After that I ordered a cup of lemongrass tea, while SC ordered hot chocolate and I started walking around the mouthwatering dessert counter. Since it was just the two of us, we only ordered Cacaoté 50K and Plaisir Sucré 40K. Both of the cakes looked really beautiful. The Cacaoté which consists of chocolate sable, praline cream, sticky caramelized nuts, chocolate sponge, milk chocolate cream, dark chocolate mousse, and chocolate glaze, has a very nice chocolate taste, with a perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness of a good couverture chocolate. I like Plaisir Sucré very much, a classic chocolate dessert first created by Pierre Hermé. The layer consist of tempered chocolate sheet, chocolate creme chantilly, chocolate ganache, hazelnut praline feuilletine, hazelnut dacquoise. It has a very nice hazelnut taste and texture in every bite.

Overall, we’re very impressed with the food and dessert served at Cacaoté. There are still a lot of delicacies I’d like to try there, like the array of eclairs and macarons, so I hope that I can return soon.

    Agak mengecewakan… Eclairnya tidak seenak yang digembar-gemborkan di social media dan adonan dasar fruit pie-nya sekeras batu :(
