Legendary Black Forest from Sari Delicatessen

While everybody in Jakarta seems to be crazy about red velvet, blue velvet or rainbow cake, I’m enthralled by black forest cake from Sari Delicatessen. I’ve heard so much about this legendary black forest, claimed by many as the best black forest in town. Sari Delicatessen is located at a small corner on the lobby level of Hotel Sari Pan Pacific. Going inside the shop feels like being teleported to a bakery store twenty years ago. They sell various sizes of Black Forest cake, various bread, cakes and pastries along with home-made (OK, store-made) meats and sausages.

The price of the black forest cake is not cheap, but believe me, it worths your every cent. Sari Delicatessen’s Black forest cake (Black Forest Gateau) consists of three layers of sponge cake filled with fresh whipped cream, loaded with black cherry, and covered with another fresh whipped cream, generous chocolate shavings and maraschino cherries on top. The cake is moist, light and the taste of kirch was quite dominant which I loved so much (although SC thinks it’s a bit overpowering). It was definitely a heavenly pleasure eating this cake and I’ll be back for more. πŸ™‚

PS: a friend also noted that their Mille-feuille is also very good, but I haven’t have a chance to try it. I think you have to order it a day in advance since it’s made by order. Well, that’s one more reason to return to Sari Delicatessen. πŸ™‚

    I think the term can be ‘house- made’ . In German, there’s the term ‘hausgemacht’ which means made in house which is slightly different from home-made or self-made.

    I used to think Sari black forest was the gold standard. But try the one from Trocadero, and you’ll change your mind too.
