Excuse our French, ladies and gents, but we would like you to just come over and sip a glass or two with us in this fine afternoon. Let’s head over to Jalan KH Wahid Hasyim number 154, Central Jakarta. Basically, as quoted from the web, this cozy venue is a French-inspired Japanese cafe turned wine bar.
Serving patrons with simple and innovative brunch, with their take on modern Japanese and French food. Careful not to label Pardon My French’s cuisine as fusion though, because they are not. Sushi rolls won’t be found in here. They found inspirations from both countries that translate well to their food option: from the choice of spicy tuna or spicy salmon on a crispy tempura nori, or the rice-based Hibachi fried rice. They also offer the Cornflake-crusted French toast, which according to the web thehoneycombers.com, is their standout dishes with homemade brioche, chocolate ganache, Jim Beam butterscotch and fresh fruits served on the sides. Okay, these are just few of the goodness provided by Pardon My French.
In case you’re wondering: “Pardon my French” or “Excuse my French” The phrase is uttered in an attempt to excuse the user profanity, swearing, or curses in the presence of those offended by it, under the pretense of the words being part of a foreign language. Atmosphere wise, the eatery oozes such calming vibes that attract many professionals from the nearby offices and of course the youngsters. So if you’re wondering where to go this weekend, make sure to reserve a table at (+62)21 2962 7721.
