Brought all the way from Japan, let’s welcome St. Marc Cafe in Senayan City, Jakarta – Indonesia.
St. Marc is a famous chain originated from Tokyo, Japan. Back when I was in Japan, it was quite easy for me to find this cafe as they have lots of outlets spread all over Japan. It mainly serves three categories of menu, Drinks, Breads and Desserts but their most popular and signature menu would be their Chocolate Croissant or Chococro in short.
Cafe Latte IDR 35k (M)
St. Marc serves various coffee based drinks both hot and cold.
As for the food menu you can easily look at the realistic looking food dummy on the display, I’m sure you’ll have a hard time in choosing your order since everything looks interestingly delicious.
Chococro IDR 19.9k // Banana Walnut Chococro IDR 22.9k
Everybody comes to St. Marc Cafe for its Chococro. There are 3 flavors of Chococro available here in particular, Original Chocolate, Banana Walnut and Strawberry but unfortunately the Strawberry Chococro wasn’t available during our visit.
The chococro has a flaky buttery yet crispy texture with rich dark chocolate filling, best enjoyed while hot for melted chocolate sensation.
Classic Fuji IDR 79.9k
Flaky buttery danish topped with soft ice cream, matcha green tea powder and red bean. The ice cream was very smooth with the right amount of creaminess and milkiness. It matches really well with the danish, but unfortunately the whole dessert was too sweet, first because of the caramel sauce they drizzled on top of the danish and second because of the overly sweet red bean.
Choco Berry Celebration IDR 74.9k
We are very impressed by how long the soft ice cream last as it didn’t melt easily. I had exactly the same menu when I was in Kyoto last summer and it was more delicious honestly, the soft ice cream was pretty similar but I remember the one I had in Kyoto has better milk aftertaste. While the pudding was the completely different, in Japan the pudding was creamy smooth while here was jiggly but tasteless. Nevertheless it was still nice here, only not as good as in Japan.
Elvis IDR 39.9k
All ice cream desserts use the same original milk based soft cream flavor, only with different toppings and presentations. Just like this one served in a crunchy cone with chocolate sauce, banana slices and corn flakes inside.
Overall, AnakJajan are glad to see so many famous brands from Japan are expanding their business to Indonesia especially Jakarta. Now if you are craving for Chococro, you don’t need to fly all the way to Japan anymore. Let’s Jajan!!
