When I think about pancakes in Jakarta, my mind will immediately go to Pancious. As one of the pioneers of pancake restaurants here, it’s hard to forget it. I have always been a fan of pancakes. It’s cute, easy and simple to prepare, a good-to-go food that I can eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, basically anytime. My first “encounter” with pancakes was when I was in United States back then, when I tried my delightful meal in IHOP (International House of Pancakes), I knew I fell in love to it right away. Sadly, it wasn’t so easy -or I should say, almost nothing- to find restaurants or cafes or anywhere that served pancakes here.
The first time I heard that they opened a pancake restaurant in Jakarta, I was ecstatic because the place was right around my house area, so it was all great. I tried dining in there a couple of times, loved the food, loved the place. However, that place (the first branch in Permata Hijau) has been closed down due to unknown reason but I’m still glad that they already have a lot of branches in many other malls. This time, I am writing about my experience with Pancious in Pacific Place.
Pop art theme dominates the interior design, very strong yet warm environment.

Red seems to be the color of their choice, it is brave and trendy. 

 Beef & Blue Cheese Pancakes – IDR 56.500++

First of all, they ran out of blue cheese that day. When we ordered this, we were informed right away, but we were okay with that. Just like usual, Pancious’ pancakes are really thick but very soft when eaten. I just love their pancakes. When I had my first bite of this, I was amazed of how delicious it is. Like, seriously. The meat is just ground beef, but it’s very soft and tender. The melted cheese on the top just complimented the whole taste. Definitely something that I will order again next time.

Coco Baileys Pancakes with Vanilla Ice Cream – IDR 45.000++
Who can resist baileys on pancakes? I definitely can’t. As expected, this one came out really, really nice. The almond sprinkles just complimented the unique taste. Heavenly.

 Mocca Waffles with Cookies & Cream Ice Cream – IDR 41.500++
Beside pancakes, their waffles are also exceptional. It’s just perfect. Mocca is one of my favorite flavors, and I think it never goes wrong with anything. The ice cream is special item so I had to pay extra IDR 5.000 for this, but it’s all worth it.

Orange Suzette with Vanilla Ice Cream – IDR 38.500++
The presentation of this cake was  absolutely breath-taking. When I saw this served on my table, I didn’t even want to eat that because I just didn’t want to ruin it. The cake is already sweet, added with orange sauce and fresh orange slices, it was just absolutely delicious.
