A second outlet of Beau bakery - one of the most popular of its kind in the capital - recently opened on Jl. Panglima Polim, South Jakarta.
The new outlet features an open kitchen that enables guests to see bakers at work, a spacious dining area and a display of baked products.
Those who found it difficult to get a table for breakfast, brunch or lunch at the bakery’s first outlet on Jl. Cikajang can now hope that getting a table at Beau will be easier.
Pastry chef Talita Setyadi, founder and CEO of Beau bakery, said on the opening day that the second outlet made her feel successful, fulfilled, whole and complete. She said that to her, success meant she would have joy in her work.
Talita also said and wrote in an Instagram post that if she were asked the meaning of success when she first established Beau, she would have said the number of stores, revenue and how much profit she made.
“I’d go on a spiel about being the ‘best’, ‘dominating the market’ and reaching my ‘full potential’, whatever that means […],” she wrote, adding that she now believes that success is about having joy every day with co-workers, among other things.
The new Beau outlet on Panglima Polim offers the bakery's signature array of European breads and pastries, as well as breakfast and lunch dishes. Among the new products available at the new outlet is Beau-Ba Pancake, the bakery's answer to the now-trending boba (bubble) drinks.
Another new item that could be interesting for lunch is ayam geprek waffles, a twist on classic fried chicken and waffles in which crispy fried chicken is served with signature sambal on buttery waffles with syrup on the side. The sambal was created by Putri Mumpuni, Beau’s head chef whose resume includes a tenure on culinary expert William Wongso’s team.
The Jakarta Post also tried Beau’s Chin-Ta chocolate chip cookie, which is made by its baker Ian Chin. A vegan version of the cookie is available too, crafted from coconut oil, coconut sugar and bittersweet dark chocolate chunks. (mut)
