Originally from Hong Kong, now this delightful pastry has been landed in Jakarta. Several cafe in the heart of Jakarta has been served it like Nomz Kitchen & Pastry, Joi Bakery, and many more. No wonder why this type of croissant get popular instantly. It is totally Instagenic and rich of flavour. Each bite into the crust was filled with a crunchy and buttery sensation plus that melted salted egg lava. I have try several outlet in Jakarta and Singapore, but the real and natural one still belong to this - Nomz Kitchen & Pastry.

Chocolate Croissant is essential nowadays. Almost every bread house and cafe in Jakarta always put this type of french pastry on top of their best seller list. But none of them has proof me more than this - Suisse Bakery and Confectionery. This legendary bakery show me the delicate crust of chocolate croissant which cracks with a beautiful crisp around the surface area, revealing an airy and soft inside, with circular twirls. The flaky crust is bound to leave crumbs on the plate, but it makes eating croissant more memorable.

Croissant Taiyaki is originally from Thailand. A hybrid product of Croissant and Taiyaki with beautiful texture and sweet flavour. Once they launch a year ago, Instagram feeds are being spammed with Croissant Taiyaki. If you like croissant, probably you gonna like this. It does crispy, flaky, soft, tender, and dense. What make it beautiful is the gorgeous presentation of it.

4. Almond Croissant by Crematology Coffee Roasters

Almond Croissant is totally gorgeous. It is quite sweet, but it is simply crispy, flaky and of course soft at the core. Meanwhile, in Jakarta there is not so many cafe who are serving this type of pastry and the one that Crematology Coffee Roaster served here is absolutely great. I can feel the richness of the butter meet the flakiness of that pastry paired with the beautiful almond topping. Also once you come here just grab some latte, because they are specialised in coffee and own a brewing machine to ensure the good quality of coffee for every single customer.

5. Croissant with Smoked Chicken & Cheese by The Caffeine Dispensary

Croissant could be modified into a simple breakfast dishes or even main course, probably like the way The Caffeine Dispensary do, it is totally attract many people to savour it also discover more about this type of french pastry. Honestly, this one is totally brilliant. The crunchiness and flakiness of that croissant meet the powerful aroma of that smoked chicken and saltiness of the cheese is simply match when it goes to your mouth. Then, a fresh vegetables like lettuce, tomato and onion could be a colourful topping to lifting up the whole presentation of it. Minimalist presentation for bolder flavour.

6. Ovomaltine Croissant by Nomz Kitchen & Pastry

Do not you love the sweetness of ovomaltine sauce meet the crunchiness of croissant? Fred not, this one available in Jakarta right now. The idea behind this looks so simple, but honestly it does not easy at all. The right amount of ovomaltine sauce should be added into the croissant, while the croissant itself should be crispy and flacky on the outside, then soft and airy on the core to be match with that filling. Nomz Kitchen & Pastry has been implement it rightly and guess what it now become really popular. 

7. Original Croissant by Joi Bakery

Dedication for perfection. Everything is handmade here, once i go to their outlet the owner called Chef James Omar introduce me about everything related to french pastry and guess what his personal bakery sell the most beautiful croissant all over the time. Their Original Croissant (IDR 15K) has a perfect texture, crispy and flacky on the outside while it remain soft and airy at the core. Everything runs well here.

8. Matcha Orange Croissant by BEAU

Located strategically in the Central of Jakarta, BEAU cafe offer you a fresh baked croissant in many variant. Lately they just launched this, a Matcha Orange Croissant (IDR 35K++) with minimalist presentation and superior flavour. Honestly the texture of that croissant is simply satisfying, even though it is not perfect i can say it is good, compare to the common one. Then the one that impressed me a lot located on the flavour of that croissant, it is not that sweet, simple and absolutely rich of aroma. This type of innovation could be more popular in Jakarta.

I am so happy with these findings. So many good croissant in Jakarta with affordable price and close location. Just follow your appetite and enjoy!
