I just had a quickie at Olivier, Grand Indonesia. It was fast, intense, and exciting!
Don’t get me wrong. What I meant was a quickie afternoon snack tongue.

It was started with a complimentary sourdough bread and the moreish butter which I finished in seconds.

Followed by Tortilla Chips (IDR 80K). It’s so addictive that I ordered another portion after devouring a whole plate of one. The chilli con carne with the red kidney bean balanced the chips perfectly. And the guacamole on the side was a perfection to this simple yet delightful menu.

I ordered the Wonton Chicken and Shrimps (IDR 70K). I expected it to be deep fried, so when it came out steamed I was kind of disappointed. But surprisingly it was a flavoursome menu. The wonton and the chilli oil, all hit the right spot! (At least it hit mine tongue)

For the closure I tried their Jackfruit Pavlova (IDR 70K). The meringue sticks were overly sweet to my liking, I couldn’t finish even one stick. The part that was edible for me only the jackfruit pieces and I couldn’t taste the brown sugar, the pineapple sauce and the coconut cream that were supposed to be in this dessert.

Olivier itself had an elegant english tavern style and a gorgeous terraced dining area with glass ceilings and decorated with plants all over.

Overall, it was a sumptuous ‘quickie’. You know what they say about having a quickie now and then was a great way to spice things up and revive some of the spontaneity and excitement. But it is not advised to have quickies too often bigsmile.

So I will come back undoubtedly and spare more time to thoroughly explore Olivier’s European-Asian wide selection of starter, tapas, main course, steak, pasta-risotto and dessert and satisfy my tastebuds.

  1. I wonder why all restaurant in Jakarta calling meringue, pavlova? Although both have the same basic ingredient. Meringue is crispy all the way through but pavlova is crispy/hard on the outside and soft in the middle. Just saying.

    1. Totally agree with you 🙂
      Pavlova may sounds more exotic than meringue :p
      And yes, Pavlova supposed to be more marshmallowy at the centre and less sweet.

      Thank you for your feedback, Jenny
