|Union Plaza Senayan|
One of the reasons that I thank God I live in Jakarta is knowing that there are many café and restaurant which provide good food with a beautiful and comfy circumstance (a nice place to take some selfie :p ). One of them is Union Brasserie, Bakery & Bar which located in Plaza Senayan.
I was really curious about this place when I heard someone says “Union has the best red velvet in Jakarta” and I was like, “really?”.
Red velvet cake, at that time (or perhaps until now?), was really booming like almost every café, restaurant or coffee shop should have put it on the menu to attract consumer. So, I got myself there at Union to try their Red Velvet and pasta for lunch. It was quite hard to find this place at the beginning because I thought it’s located inside the mall but I was wrong.
I suggest you to reserve in advance to avoid such a looooong waiting list especially at lunch (it’s always happened every time I went there).
I like the full window interior and the ambience there: It looks like greenhouse from the outside. But unfortunately this place is quite noisy and crowded for those who wish for a quiet lunch.
Let’s talk about the food!

Creamless Carbonara 95K
As its name suggests, this pasta is creamless. Tagliatelle, classic pasta from Italy, served with pork bacon and parmesan cheese. Taste good. However, the small portions of this pasta weren’t satisfying my hungry stomach.
Orecchitte with sea urchin cream 95K
I never try this kind of pasta called orecchite before. It served with crispy chicken skin and chicken sausage and I love it!! I am a fan of creamy pasta and it was really yummy as I expected when I ordered it. The saltiness from the sea urchin blends with the creaminess of pasta sauce made a good combo. This is a must try!
Red Velvet Cake 55K and Carrot Banana Cake 50K
I came here to prove the rumors about their red velvet so I definitely ordered it, besides I also try their carrot cake. They are so good especially the red velvet cake. You won’t get disappointed spending 50K for those big sliced cakes.
Red Velvet Cake
I love everything in this cake. The moist texture of the cake, the frosting, the smells of rum, and the crunchy peanut oh oh I love it.
Carrot Banana Cake
It has unique flavor that I can’t explain and I love it too!
Red Velvet Cheese Cake 55K
Man, have you ever imagine that cheesecake can be mixed with red velvet in just one sliced? I can’t say anything else but PERFECT!
For drink I ordered Toasted Marsmallow 60K and Equil Natural 50K
Too bad I forgot the taste of the milkshake but as I remember it tasted nice especially for vanilla lovers.
I think this place is good for a quick hangout, tea time or having a coffee break because they only give you an hour or two to have your meal. Enjoy your time there!
PS: This place is more amazing when Christmas. I love how they turned it into a more lovely place with a touch of maroon and dark brown. Such a warm place.
