ham and brie panini @ capocaccia

Dear fellow tasters,

Sandwich is probably a casual food that we usually have for breakfast or lunch.  Even in most restaurants, it’s commonly featured as the second-class less-favorite non-specialty menu.  Regardless, if you happen to stroll around Jakarta’s elite shopping heaven, Pacific Place, do stop by Capocaccia for a taste of Italian sandwich dining with style.  Last Christmas, I happened to go there for lunch with my friends, thus the Christmas wreath decor.  I can’t really remember the names of the sandwiches but the three of us shared two paninis, one with ham and brie and the other with turkey and some veggies, and a plate of aglio olio pasta.  We couldn’t help but agree that the paninis were divine.  The bread was fresh and crunchy and the fillings were of the finest quality.  We also pretty much enjoyed the tasty bresaola (air-dried salted beef) and the scrumptious cheese shavings in our pasta.

The taster’s notes:
Favorite dish – the paninis
What to try next time – definitely will try other panini combination
Food rating – 4 star
Price rating – $$$
Ambiance rating – 3 star

  1. Hi.. the sandwiches remind me a little of long-gone Subway 😀 are they available all day or only for lunch? Also mind sharing the price? Thanks 🙂

  2. Lol, subway sandwiches are much much bigger. These ones are kind of tiny and less fulfilling. I think they’re available all day because their main menu consists of sandwiches.

    If I remembered correctly (since it’s already December last year), the price was around 300k rupiahs for 3 person (2 paninis, 1 pasta and regular drinks).

  3. Oh really? I thought they’re big since you split them 3 each haha.. oh that comment only shows how much I eat T_T I hope can try them soon because the ham sure looks tempting.. thx for the info, and keep the review comin 😀

  4. Well, the photos sure look deceiving, don’t they… But they’re certainly delicious and the ham is imported directly from Italy if I’m not mistaken because this restaurant is a franchise from Italy… Checkout
