The Marmalade Pantry

OK The Marmalade Pantry this time.. It's a restaurant with a franchise concept originated from Singapore, and this is their first branch in Jakarta.. They're offer a modern concept bistro for casual dining..

Stepping into The Marmalade Pantry, is like walking into the simply elegant kitchen pantry.. It brings you such a homey ambiance, really a good place to relax..

The food here is not quite wide selections.. They offer Western Europe dishes and use only fresh ingredients and with no MSG.. So, let's give it a try..

Our drinks, Coca Cola (20K) and Hot Lemon Tea (25K)..

We started off with an order of Pesto Chicken Wrap (65K), pan fried pesto chicken wrap served with vegetable chips and salads. The dish is quite similar like I had in Canteen, but the different here is it's a pan fried wrap and they put a mashed sweet potato (if I'm not mistaken) on it.. The mashed sweet potato give a unique taste on it, nice though.. But the portion is quite light, since they used vegetable chips instead of french fries, but it's more healthy rite? hehe..

Looking for bigger portion? Try their Club Sandwich (65K), three stacks of toast filled with grilled chicken and crispy turkey bacon, topped with a perfect sunny side egg, and also served with vegetables chips and salad.. It was too big for me, I can't finished it all by myself.. But it was delicate, all fresh ingredients on it..

Even though both dish didn't exactly wow for me, but I will come back next time to try their selection of desserts.. For the price, I think it's a slightly higher.. But I love this classy place to hang out..

You should try their dessert next time you are there: sticky date toffee pudding. It is simply to die for! Other favorites of mine are: crab linguini, falavel and the crab caesar. Superbly yummy!
