Kemang is one of the coolest and hypest in Jakarta where you will find a lot of unique and interesting restaurants which serve enticing dish also.
One of that so-called restaurant that I got the chance to visit was Ellexito Eatery and Pastry.
In the menu there are choices of pastas as the main dish, variants of appetizers, salads, steaks, and rice. The pastas come with a bit of twist. The flavors are combined with Indonesian palate, so you can name them fusion pastas.
Well, back to the food. At my visit I tried quite a lot of their menu. Come see what I tried there.
Well done with the appetizers, let's try the fusion pastas and other main courses.
The Cheesy Baked Rice - IDR 38K is quite salty for my palate. Inside this dish there is that pasta dough, mushrooms, and rice. The cheese was actually tasted nice but a bit salty. The rice is delicious. It's savory. The mushrooms were tasty too.
This restaurant also offers a line of mouth-watering desserts. Just FYI, these desserts were handcrafts from one of the restaurant's owner who is also a pastry chef, Stella Mariss. When you first entered the restaurant, you might find these treats displayed on a counter. Let's see what desserts I tried.
The praline (or the sugar candy) was great. I love the sticky and crunchy texture. The dacquoise at the bottom layer was good also. It has a balanced texture and a good taste. The mousse was my favourite. I always love dark chocolate with its bitter taste and fair sweetness. Overall this dessert was excellent. Not too sugary.
As a sweet-tooth I bet you will love this dessert. The gelatin in the caramel gelee was just perfect. The vanilla sponge was soft and nice. And the mousse was tasty.
I love this dessert. The yoghurt was not too sour, and it combined nicely with the pudding. The mango fruit was nice and sweet also.
Overall conclusion, it's a great restaurant and a wonderful alternative for pasta lovers who would want to try pasta with a little twist. Combining Italian dishes with local palate has proven to work perfectly, as these dishes I tried gave me an exciting dining experience.
The desserts are something you just have to try if you should ever come here. They're mouth watering and so sweet-tooth, you'll instantly fall for them.
The prices are quite decent with the quality of the food. It's so worth it. The ambience is also comfortable.
So if you feel bored with your regular taste of pasta, come and give Ellexito Eatery and Pastry a try. Best fusion pasta so far.
Keep on chewing!
