Kafe Pisa Menteng, Jakarta

Last night, my friend brought me to Kafe Pisa for a nice and yummy Italian dinner to celebrate my birthday :)

Kafe Pisa is a restaurant that offers authentic Italian atmosphere and a mini nice garden just like Italian patio. The restaurant is divided into the main Café, Garden area, and additional area.

We decided to sit in the additional area although we couldn't see the live music performance in the main Café area.

Our orders:

French Fries with tuna dressing
Price Rp. 30.000

Vulcano Pizze
Price Rp. 89.000
(Volcano style pizza with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, smoked beef and mushrooms)

Involtino Di Pollo
Price Rp. 77.000
(Rolled chicken breast stuffed with mozzarella cheese & smoked beef in mushroom sauce)

Kafe Pisa is famous for its gelato (ice cream), freshly made everyday without any use of additives.

Thus, instead of a birthday cake, I had...

Coppa Amore

Price Rp. 39.500
(6 scoops of Gelato served with crispy wafers, whipped cream, cherry, and chocolate sauce).

Currency: 1 USD = Rp. 10. 200

Address:
Jl. Gereja Theresia No.1, Menteng
Jakarta Pusat, 10350

  39. Hi Selba,
    Thanks for your comment about Balinese Sate. But here is what I think about your suggestion using lemongrass as the skewer.

    In Bali, never used lemongrass skewer. They always use bamboo skewer (only a little bit flatter and a bit wider) even now!. Those LEMONGRASS skewer, I think it was popularized by the restaurant to make the sate more appealing. Trust me on this one, if you go to Balinese houses especially in the villages, you will never ever seen people use Lemongrass. They use it for something more useful for that, like "sambel sere" for example. I am Balinese, born and grew up there in the village, so I know exactly what I am talking about. BUT, thanks though for the advise. I am sure it will look more intriguing and excotique.

  40. Wow! Your coppa amore is making me drooling now! That's a great choice to subsitute a birthday cake. Hehehe!

  42. Happy belated birthday! LOVE the huge array of gelato flavours.

  43. Fries with tuna dressing? o_O Never heard of that before! Was it good? :P

    Oh myyyy, look at the dessert! I want ice cream too! Oh and I won't say no to a slice of pizza as well. Hehehe!

  46. elra: thanks for the explanation about the skewer, Elra! I’ve seen many times Balinese sate using lemongrass in the 5 stars hotels and watched on a TV cooking show; now I understand that it’s not the authentic way.

    FFT: Yup, I think it’s even better than a b’day cake ;)

    pam: the filling of the volcano pizza is great :)

    palidor: Hi Palidor, thanks for stopping by my blog and also the b’day wishes :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. angele: Yes, the tuna dressing was wonderful, even much better than mayonnaise, ketchup or chili sauce ;)

    talat: Hi talat, thanks for dropping by my blog :)

    dustjacket attic: You are welcome :)
