ShopHaus is the manifestation of today’s culinary trend in Jakarta – collaboration space. Collecting a number of brand names like Berrywell, Pigeonhole Coffee, Mockingbird, Namelaka, and Gelato Secrets occupy the F&B section at ShopHaus. ShopHaus has become the current spotlight for the hype people of Jakarta to spend their time socializing.
Namelaka Patisserie had recently filled my instagram account, so I was so excited to finally be able to have a taste of these cuties!
Namelaka mainly sells Choux pastries. Almost all of their items were priced at IDR38,500 per choux. Since the waitress recommended the White Chocolate & Raspberry choux, I decided to follow her recommendations.
The choux was quite scrumptious. It was so crunchy and crispy, yet soft (easy to cut & chew) at the same time. The filling inside was very soft and creamy, not too sweet either. It was delicious, but I just thought it wasn’t worth the price..
This is also the current talk in town! Gelato secrets from Bali has come to rock Jakarta! The price was quite affordable in my opinion – for a Gelato stand opening in one of the most elite spaces in Jakarta.
One of their most unique flavor is the Black SPICY Gelato! I tried it as tester and it was quite intriguing indeed. Since it’s sweet, the spiciness only gives a slight burning and ‘jumping’ sensation in your tongue. Definitely suitable for the more adventurous ones!
I decided to try the Coconut Pandan and Rum Raisin flavor, and boy I really LOVE them! The coconut pandan was creamy yet not quite so, it was very fragrant and not too sweet either. The rum raisin was quite distinct in its rum raisin without being too overpowering. LOVE IT!
