Ellexito Eatery And Pastry

#myfoodHai Eaters.

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.



Located just accros Kemang Food Garden, Ellexito Eatery and Pastry just had its soft launching last June. So you can say they are a new comer in the culinary industry. But that doesn't mean you won't get quality dishes here.
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.

The interior inside the restaurant itself is pretty cozy. Quite comfortable and simple. There are picture frames hanging on the wall. The table and chair are made from wood. The overall interior looks nice and clean.
Well, back to the food. At my visit I tried quite a lot of their menu. Come see what I tried there.

First up are the appetizers. The first I tried was the Mouthwatering Crispy Mushroom - IDR 32K. The kind of mushroom used for this dish is the champignon mushroom. Then the mushrooms are covered with a layer of savory and delicious batter, later to be topped with Ellexito's special mustard sauce. I love this dish. Especially because the mushroom had a very nice tender texture. It's so mouth-watering in every bite. The batter was excellent and goes so perfectly with the not-too-sour mustard sauce.

The next appetizer I tried was the Asian Spicy Fried Calamari - IDR 47K. It came in quite a big portion. So worth the price, in my opinion. The calamari was fried to perfection. An appealing golden brown color with delicious layer of crispy batter. It was topped by spicy yet savory chilli sauce, giving it another extra flavor that enhanced the dish. The chilli sauce is quite spicy for my palate, but I'm still enjoying it. Also there's salad as the side garnish. If you love spicy food for your appetizer, this menu could be your favourite.

Yeayy!! My favourite kind of food is also in the menu, the Honey Jam Wings - IDR 32K. As a dying fan of chicken wings (you might already know) this is the menu I've been wanting to try so bad. Just looking at its presentation has got me drooling. And I wasn't disappointed. The taste was excellent. The chicken is tender, and the outer layer has got that sweet yet delicious taste of Ellexito's honey butter sauce. The inside meat actually was quite plain for my palate. But I used the mustard sauce on the dish to give the chicken a nice taste.

Surprised to find Thai Salad - IDR 28K in a restaurant that serves western food. I was expecting a Caesar Salad, but to be honest this Thai Salad was remarkable. It tasted so fresh. Had the right balance and amount of acidity. I find it so delicious, especially it was so rich with textures. The crispiness from the garlic bread and the moist and softness of the tofu just added delightments in every bite.

Well done with the appetizers, let's try the fusion pastas and other main courses.

#myfood
I love food that contained salted egg inside. And lucky me, there's the Salted Egg Spaghetti - IDR 65K in the menu. The spaghetti I found not too be greasy although it was covered with salted egg. Pretty nicely executed. It tasted so savory because the usage of the salted egg. And it was topped with fried marinated prawn that added delish to the dish. Loving this menu.
#myfood
The next pasta I tried was the Green "Woku" Chilli Fettuccine - IDR 48K. The fettuccine was mixed together with chicken woku, originated from Manado, Indonesia. Woku as we might know has a rich and spicy taste. Collaborated with the fettuccine, it just mind-blowing. The level of the spiciness can be picked from: mild, medium, or spicy. But if you like woku, you just gotta try it spicy. Super delicious.
#myfood
The Lemongrass Lime Mayo Spaghetti - IDR 48K tasted quite decent for my palate. The taste was quite mild, though I was hoping for more bold flavors. The spaghetti was almost a bit plain. Luckily the grilled chicken steak which was on the topping was surprisingly delicious. The garlic bread was also nice. Not too salty, and not too garlicky. Just the right flavor.

I also loved the Carbonara Fettuccine - IDR 45K. The cheesy taste was delicious. And also they are vey generous with the bacon, which had a nice savory taste. The fettuccine was cooked perfectly to al dente. And I love the creaminess of the pasta. Superb.

The Red Spicy Anchovies Penne - IDR 45K by far was the most unique pasta I tried here. The taste I have to say was so rich. Spicy, salty and savory altogether. It's like a feast in my mouth. The level of spiciness was decent, and it didn't make me sweat. The anchovies were good, not too salty and a bit salty. They also gave a crunchy texture in every bite. The penne was marvelous. A bit greasy with chilli oil but yet so savory. Great dish.




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.

#myfood
The first one arriving at my table was the Royal - IDR 37K. It consists of almond dacquoise, crunchy praline and dark chocolate mousse.
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.

#myfood
Next one was the De 'Caramelo - IDR 40K. Shaped so beautifully and artistic. It consists of vanilla sponge, vanilla mousse, caramel gelee and Ellexito's homemade strawberry jam.
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.

#myfood
The Passion - IDR 42K at first I thought was a chocolate lava cake. But when I split the cake in half, I found inside the cake was passion fruit gelee that tasted sweet and a bit sour. It went so well with the bitterness of the dark chocolate crumble also inside the cake. The sponge cake and the mousse was great. Especially for the mousse since it contained a bit of Earl Grey milk chocolate.

The Tiramisu Bar - IDR 35K taste decent to me. It was served cold. The mousse was nice, not to sweet. I just wished I could get a glimpse taste of the coffee as I would've expected from a tiramisu.
#myfood
The Red Velvet - IDR 30K tasted too sweet for my palate. Preferably I would love that it would be a little cheesy. The sweet taste seemed to overpowered the cheesy taste. In my opinion, some people just couldn't finish a cake that's too sugary.
#myfood
The last one was the Mango Yogurt Panacotta - IDR 22K. Served in glass. The bottom layer was the yoghurt, then the mango pudding and mango fruit on the top.
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.

#myfood
For the drink I had the Lemon Tea - IDR 12K. It was refreshing. Nothing out of the ordinary or too fancy about it though.

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!
