Marche is a Swiss-Italian restaurant located in Grand Indonesia and Plaza Senayan. The restaurant is designed based on the Switzerland fruit market. You can see lots of fresh fruits on the wooden counter, baskets hanging on the walls and ceilings, and barrels! Barrels everywhere.

The place is divided into 5 counters, if I'm not mistaken. There are Salad and Soup Counter, Swiss Main Course Counter, Italian Main Course Counter, Dessert and Rotisserie Counter, and Beverages Counter. We   can order the food at the counter, and the order will be noted on the card that were given to us upon arrival. This restaurant is really my weakness. All the food placed in the counter looks so good, and I want to try everything! Especially the desserts :9

But you know, our belly and wallet can't afford that much, so here's what we ordered:

Rosti with Bacon and Egg (IDR 57.000)
Honestly, I wasn't expect much from this dish at first. Rosti is a traditional Swiss food, made of grated potato as the main ingredient. I wasn't expect to taste a hint of creaminess in the perfectly cooked potatoes. And I wasn't expect the texture of the potatoes to be so rich, crunchy outside but soft and moist inside. That surprised me, and I fell for it right at my first bite.

Roasted Chicken Leg (IDR 39.000) with Mashed Potatoes (IDR 12.000)
It was also good. The chicken leg was big and tender, and the mashed potatoes was nice and creamy. Even David, who usually dislikes mashed potatoes, like it.

Beef Bacon and Cheese Pizza (IDR 45.000)
The pizza was good, but not extraordinary. They were quite generous on the topping, and you can take the parmesan cheese yourself, as much as you want, but for me, the pizza dough was too chewy.

Creme Brulee (IDR 22.000)
Perfect dessert to end our dinner. The texture was soft and moist, the taste was not too sweet, I think I shouldn't share it with David. I could eat the whole portion alone.

In conclusion (like if I haven't make it clear from my writings above), the restaurant satisfied me more than I expected, and surely I'll be their loyal customer.
