Located at the 3rd floor of Plaza Senayan, Eric Kayser is now occupying the space that used to be Nannini’s. At first, I was quite disappointed knowing that Nannini closed their store here as I really love their Fettuccine Carbonara. Moreover, I did love the place as it was really accessible from my boardinghouse and it was indeed a cozy one. However, by the time I found out that the replacer of Nannini was Eric Kayser, my mind changed by 180 degree.They sell high quality bread and viennoseries
They sell high quality bread and viennoseries (croissants, bichons, and danishes), which are all freshly baked every day. For the savoury lovers, they also provide savoury tart, salad, pizza, sandwich, and many more French savoury dishes. And the most important (especially for me ), they provide finest French pastries and coffee. For me who is a dessert lover and a coffee addict, Eric Kayser is my kind of heaven. I can enjoy their super-good-looking-yet-delicious cakes, while at the same time have a sip on my coffee. Definitely can be either a perfect brunch or an ideal tea time, isn’t it?
Now let’s go to the part you have been waiting, the foods!
Fougasse Au Boeuf Grille (IDR 168k)
Ham & Cheese Croissant (IDR 82k) Besides the pizza, I did try their brunch menu, which was available from the opening time until 2pm. My choice went to this Ham & Cheese Croissant, which was basically croissant topped with beef ham and emmental cheese. Coming as the side dishes was lettuce and roasted tomato, and choice of egg (sunny side up, easy cook, or scrambled egg). I was quite disappointed with this dish as the first time it was served, the egg was cooked as sunny side up instead of easy cook, which was my request. The waiter then brought it into the kitchen again and changed it to the easy cook one. However, I was still upset looking at the presentation of the dish especially the egg, as for me it did not really show restaurant-quality presentation. Taste wise, it was okay but not for repeating order.
Now the part that I love to talk about the most, D.E.S.S.E.R.T.S!!
As their eclairs were so 'happening', having a try on them was a must for me. So, I had these two.
Pistachio Eclair (IDR 40k)
Mi Cuit / Chocolate Fondant (IDR 68k)
Royal (IDR 50k) This perfect combination of chocolate mousse and peanut butter has successfully pampered my taste bud. The texture was moist and the chocolate taste was very strong. A doubtless choice for a chocolate-fanatic like me!
Foret Noire (IDR 50k) Reflected by its name, this indeed was a Black Forrest cake, but in Eric Kayser’s version. The ingredients used as well as the taste were quite similar to Black Forrest, except that this one came in mousse form, instead of sponge cake form. Since the texture was creamy, which you might rarely find in common Black Forrest, I did love this cake (yeah I always love creamy desserts). It was a perfect innovation for me as I could get the taste of Black
Forrest, in the form of creamy cake, which I really really loved.
Coffee Walnut (IDR 50k) I simply ordered this Coffee Walnut cake because it looked appealing. Additionally, it used coffee as the main ingredient, and yes I did love coffee so I thought why not giving it a try. Combining coffee cream and walnut on a pie crust, the taste was actually simple but quite enjoyable, though I might not want to order it for the second time. I guessed this might
be a preference for those who love cake with creamy texture, but not having too sweet taste.
Lemon Raspberry Tart (IDR 50k) The presentation of this cake was surely the winner among all desserts I enjoyed in this lunch. Even before I tasted this cake, the presentation could already make me feel refreshed. The sparkling red color of the fresh raspberries definitely made me drool and could not wait to have a spoon of it. Served on the crunchy tart, the sour and succulent flavor from lemon and raspberry combined with the sweet vanilla cream taste, have certainly created a heavenly piece of cake. Since I ate this cake after having other ‘chocolatey’ dessert, it tasted even better as it came as the final refresher for my taste bud. All in all, I think Eric Kayser deserves a try. They provide a complete package of great foods, great service, and great place. Although the price is relatively high, but it does reflect the quality earned.
